We check out the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 iCX 8G, and heck yeah this is not your regular one. Meet the all custom, cooled and tweaked EVGA "For-The-Win2" Edition. This SKU is a more premium version that comes with some new features, e.g. read sensors everywhere. We'll heck out the 8 GB product fitted with a nice and impressive two slot cooler, some extra LED functionality and a product that comes with some sexy out of the box clock frequencies.

We reviewed many GeForce GTX 1080 cards, however a new SKU has been inserted with super fast graphics memory. And being a Gaming X PLUS this is an all custom, tweaked and cooled better product. Let's check out the new 8 GB model from MSI, the GTX 1080 GAMING X PLUS with 11000 MHz clocked memory.
We review the MSI Radeon RX 580 GAMING X armed with 8GB. This TwinFrozr VI cooled mainstream graphics card series will allow you to play your games in both the Full HD 1080P range as well as gaming in WQHD (2560x1440) range. In that 269 USD price bracket.
We review the ASUS Radeon RX 580 STRIX with 8GB graphics memory. This three fan cooled mainstream graphics card series will allow you to play your games in both the Full HD 1080P range as well as gaming in WQHD (2560x1440) range. As always ASUS ROG has a few strix / tricks up their sleeves.
In this review we'll look at the Sapphire Radeon RX 570 Nitro+ graphics card. This Nitro+ edition has a massive cooling block slapped on top of it. And while the GPU is similar to that of the Radeon RX 470, a higher boost frequency will bring this card towards RX 480 performance levels.
The Realforce RGB is Topre’s first mainstream keyboard. For the uninitiated, Topre is both a company and a type of switch. It’s pronounced toe-poo-reh, and is short for Tokyo Press Kogyo, a large Japanese company that makes a lot of other stuff besides keyboards.
