The final day of May has arrived, bringing with it a range of items for you to check out. We have a review on Intel's recently released Core i7 6950X processor, a 10-core monster on the Broadwell-E platform that carries a demanding price tag for the performance it delivers. For a processor far down on the price spectrum, the AMD Athlon X4 845 gets reviewed to see how this budget friendly quad-core handles the task of powering your PC. Sticking with processors, this time the mobile world, we have a report from ARM Tech Day 2016, giving us a look at several new items along the way that could find their way into our smartphones and tablets. Another smartphone from TP-LINK gets tested, this time the Neffos C5, which has a more powerful chip than its low-power sibling. If you need your tunes sent from your PC or smartphone, perhaps the Fresh 'n Rebel Rockbox Chunk Fabriq Edition Wireless Speaker is the one for you. Wrapping things up is a look at the best smartwatches of 2016, covering Android, iOS, fitness, and even luxury models.

The second card in NVIDIA's new Pascal architecture has arrived, with the GeForce GTX 1070 stepping into the picture. Reviews on it are starting to roll out, giving us all a look at how the slightly reduced CUDA core count from the GTX 1080 performs in games. It doesn't seem to have any problem with it, with impressive performance throughout, especially when compared to the older cards. If you're in the market for a new video card that gets the job done while not breaking the bank, the GeForce GTX 1070 just might be the one for you.

The end of the week is here, bringing with it a few items to welcome in the weekend. We have a review of the 1UP Keyboards Pok3r Sleeve, a protective casing to keep your Pok3r keyboard safe during transport. It can also fit some other keyboards, too, so if you don't own a Pok3r, you can still be in luck. There is a look at Blizzard's new Overwatch multiplayer FPS, with it tested on a range of systems to see what kind of performance you can expect on the hardware you run. Ending things for today is a podcast looking back at the latest news and reviews from the past week.

We have a review on the Toshiba OCZ RD400 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, capable of fitting in an M.2 slot or in a PCIe slot with an available adapter to give you a couple different ways to expand your system storage.

We have a look a the Thermaltake Core X31 case, a mid tower model that still has plenty of room inside for a ton of gear, including two 360mm radiators.

NVIDIA's latest behemoth, the GeForce GTX 1080, is nearly here, with the NDA lifting today to show us all what the new flagship video card delivers. It runs on the Pascal architecture and the GP104 core, packing 2560 CUDA cores, 160 texture units, and 64 ROPs. It also has 8GB of Micron's new GDDR5X memory running at a 10Gbps data rate. The GP104 core itself is clocked at 1607MHz with a boost clock of 1733MHz. It should make for some impressive performance, especially once you start overclocking and take the card up and over the 2GHz barrier. The GeForce GTX 1080 is available in a Founders Edition card straight from NVIDIA, the altered name for the reference cards, with its board partners offering a range of options for a lower price. Today we have the Founders Edition cards for you, so check them out below to see what the GTX 1080 is all about.

There is a review on the AMD FX 8350 Black Edition CPU and Wraith Cooler, a revamped cooler that should help keep the new AMD CPUs from getting too warm during heavy use. If you need a new enclosure for your build, perhaps the Phanteks Eclipse P400S case, with its sound dampening material for a silent build, is for you. To help control your system better, the Gamdias Hermes Mechanical Keyboard, featuring RGB backlighting and Kailh blue switches, gets tested to see what it can do.

The end of the week is here, bringing several items to help welcome in the weekend. There is a review on the Tesoro Sagitta Spectrum Gaming Mouse, featuring a 5000 DPI sensor, full RGB lighting, and eight programmable buttons to customize however you need to get the results in your games. To help the mouse out, the Corsair MM300 Anti-Fray Cloth Mouse Mat may just do the trick of providing a clean surface with the best possible control. If you need a new game that will help brutalize your sensors, Dark Souls III is now available and benchmarked to see what kind of performance you get in a range of setups. Wrapping things up is a new podcast covering the latest news and reviews from the past week.

Another week of April is nearly in the books, but not before we have some items for you to check out. A few different AMD APUs and CPUs get tested, with the A10-7890K, A10-7860K, and Athlon X4 880K all reviewed to see what they can do. The Phanteks Eclipse P400S Silent Edition mid-tower case is reviewed to check out how this version of the case can keep your system from being the loudest thing in the room. Wrapping the items up for today is a look at the Tt eSPORTS Shock 3D 7.1 PC Gaming Headset, a USB model that could give your gaming experience the boost it needs.
