Friday has arrived, with a few items for you to check out before the weekend hits. We have a look at the Fnatic STREAK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, featuring Cherry MX switches, full RGB backlighting, and onboard macro recording, among others, to give you ultimate control. If you're instead after something to help that other means of controlling your games, then perhaps the Fnatic Asphalt and Focus 2 Mouse Mats are for you, as both feature a cloth top and non-slip grip to keep them planted, with the Focus 2 also coming in different sizes to better match your desk. We wrap things up with some comfort, as the Sunmae Gaming Chair gets put to the test to see how it compares against more expensive gaming-specific computer chairs.

Hardware Roundup: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti Edition

Yesterday, NVIDIA launched its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti video cards. These new cards take full advantage of ray tracing technology to bring even more life to games, just it'll take some time before games are able to utilize it and the other new tech in the cards. It's certainly something to prepare you for the future, as these cards should be able to handle whatever you throw at it with ease, even at 4K resolutions. These cards are not cheap, however, as the RTX 2080 arrives in the $800 range and the 2080 Ti in the $1,200 range for the Founders Editions. There should be slightly more affordable versions from NVIDIA's partners, but just know that it's a big investment regardless. Now, time to see what these cards can do, so hit up the links below!

Tuesday has arrived, with a couple of items for you to check out. We have a look at the AMD Athlon 200GE, an extremely affordable CPU running on the Zen architecture that could be perfect for those needing something cost and power efficient. Our other item for the day is a review of the Toshiba OCZ RC100 240GB SSD, which is a more affordable NVMe SSD that ditches the DRAM approach for Host Memory Buffer and a PCIe x2 instead of x4 interface for slightly slower read and write speeds that are still two to three times faster than SATA.

A new week is here, with several items for you to check out. We have a look at the architecture of the new NVIDIA RTX GPUs and a deeper dive into what we can expect with these video cards. There's a look at the best CPUs of 2018 so far and which ones you should go for based on what you're planning to do and your budget for your PC. We have a review of the Patriot Viper RGB 16GB DDR4-3000 Memory Kit, which is compatible with plenty of RGB controllers from different companies, and even has its own program if you don't use any of them. For those after a new way to get into their games, perhaps the Cherry MX Board 5.0 and its MX Silent Red switches is for you. If you instead need something that enhances your audio, there's a look at the Creative Sound BlasterX G6 7.1 HD Gaming DAC and External USB Sound Card that supports up to 600-ohm headphones and Dolby Digital Decoding.

There's a look at the CRYORIG C7 Cu cooler, which takes its popular C7 design and remixes it with an all-copper build to hopefully boost its performance that little bit more. If storage is what you're after, then perhaps the Synology DS1618+ NAS is for you, as it sports six bays and even a PCIe expansion slot to just maybe become your new home or business media server. For those instead in need of more control for their games, perhaps the ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, featuring new Titan switches and even a rotary dial for adjustments, is the one for you. Maybe you're after something a little different, which is where the Das Keyboard 5Q and X50Q step in, which are billed as the world's first smart mechanical keyboards.

Friday has arrived and with it several items for you to check out. We have a couple looks at the new Corsair Hydro Series H100i PRO RGB Liquid CPU Cooler, which takes the radiator down a bit to 240mm and some subtle RGB lighting to really give you something that can work in nearly any case. There's an article analyzing video card pricing for the month, including looks at the best values to get right now and even if you should be picking up a new card or waiting longer. If you're after some more storage, perhaps the QNAP TS-453Be NAS will do the trick for you, as it can easily store all your files, stream your media to your devices, and can even be expanded with an M.2 drive for more performance. We wrap things up today with a review of Warhammer 40,000:  Inquisitor - Martyr, which has you stepping into the boots of an Inquisitor as you hunt down the forces of Chaos to restore order to the sector.

The middle of the week is upon us, with a few items for you to check out. We have a look at the ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin mouse, boasting a 12,000 DPI optical sensor and many of the same features of the original to still make it a popular choice for gaming. There's a review of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (3rd Generation) 2-in1 laptop, sporting an 8th Gen Intel Core processor, an enhanced fingerprint sensor, and even a shutter on the webcam to only use it when you actually need it. If you're instead after a different 2-in-1, the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1, with its Intel Kaby Lake-G processor, might just be the one to get if you want to see what the AMD RX Vega GPU integration with the Intel CPU is all about.
