I looked at the service manuals. The 14" manual shows how to replace the RAM stick for the single DIMM slot. The 13" manual didn't show...

Just wanted to update in the interest of not spreading misinformation, SharkBay updated their report on Rocket Lake and said they made some...

Likely no real IPC improvement coming with desktop 10th gen. Ice Lake and 10nm seem like they're destined for premium laptops only for the...

Latest rumours suggest Comet Lake is in line for the "10th gen" desktop series from Intel. More 14nm Skylake, in other words. Word is...

16 GB of RAM is hardly a slight academic performance enhancement if you're going to be doing things that'll use more than 8 GB of system...

Seems like the Vostro 14 has one bank of soldered DDR4 memory and one DIMM slot, whereas the 13 only has soldered LPDDR3 memory. That might...

These laptops aren't 10th gen Ice Lake, they're 10th gen Comet Lake. Comet Lake is essentially a refresh of Skylake/Kaby Lake/Whiskey Lake...

Depends, are you using an Intel system or an AMD system? If you're using Ryzen, I'd go with the Crucial kit. If you're on an Intel system,...

Micron E-die ICs have much better overclocking compatibility with all Ryzen generations, including the rather picky 1st gen and somewhat...

If you're looking for the compatibility with 1st or 2nd gen Ryzen that Micron E-die ICs known for, those Corsair sticks won't offer it. I'm...

Played a few hours worth, it's pretty fun. Matchmaking is still a bit broken for me outside of the Arcade playlist but it's not bad....

Yep, just getting "order location is too far from store" when trying to check out. Nicely done, Uber Eats.

There are definitely high refresh VA panels on the market, but due to the technology you often don't get the full 144 Hz supported by the...

So just to clear up some of the differences. TN panels have very fast response times and are often cheaper than other display types, but...

You should be able to play it on two different Xbox One systems at the same time. Have one console set as your 'home Xbox', and the other...

With 4GB RX 570s previously being available for a little over $200 and 4GB RX 580s available for similar prices to this if not slightly...

A 290 is still in the performance league of cards like the RX470/570 and GTX 1060 3GB. The main benefits would be lower power consumption,...

[@conza](/comment/6380213/redir): One upcoming exception to the rule: Forza Horizon 4. The game is very well optimised, runs great on my R9...

I bought one of these when they came out thanks to [this](https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/296761) deal back in March last year. Excellent...

They said they've got a Noctua D15, so there's no need for concern about AIO compatibility. A D15 or similar tower style heatsink cools...

All Ryzen processors are overclockable on any motherboard with a "B" or "X" chipset (B350/450 mid-range, X370/470 high-end), regardless of...

If you're keen on mythic+ dungeons, demon hunter is a fairly good class to choose. Vengeance demon hunter is arguably one of the top tier...

The system requirements for Battle for Azeroth were updated with the deprecation of DX9 and addition of DX12. Minimum requirements are: *...

If you're looking primarily to DPS, the only classes I'd recommend against boosting would be shaman and priest. By Blizzard's own...

[@netsurfer](/comment/6252063/redir): Guessing here: FreeSync is usually handled over DisplayPort. FreeSync over HDMI is possible, but not...

R9 290Xs are roughly comparable to RX 480/580 4GB cards. The R9 290 is roughly analogous to the RX 470. Same goes for the R9 390 and RX 570.

Here's a fairly recent test comparing Windows 10 and Linux performance for both Nvidia and AMD high end and midrange graphics cards....

An RX 570 should be good for an average of 60fps at 1080p with ultra settings in Project Cars 2 based on some quick searching. If you turn...

2x8GB will provide significantly more bandwidth for the GPU side of this Ryzen APU if gaming is a use case for you.
