Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC Review
Desktop AMD Ryzen powers an eight-core, 16-thread laptop. Having witnessed AMD shake up the desktop CPU landscape with the introduction of its Ryzen processor family, we've been itching to see how the company will fare in the laptop space with Ryzen Mobile. AMD hasn't held a meaningful slice of the mobile market for quite some time, and though the initial signs are positive, it remains to be seen whether or not Ryzen technology will be utilised in laptops that today's consumers actually want.

Hoping to get a jump on the competition, Asus isn't even waiting for Ryzen Mobile, and is instead offering something different to the established Intel crop in the form of the ROG Strix GL702ZC. At first glance it looks a familiar machine - similar chassis have been employed by other models in the ROG Strix range - but the GL702ZC sets itself apart by being an all-AMD affair.

GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 Motherboard Review
We recently took a look at GIGABYTE's AORUS Gaming 7 for the Z370 platform, and today we will look at its little brother, the Z370 AORUS Gaming 5. The Gaming 5 has fewer features than the Gaming 7 but also costs about $30 less. Saying it has fewer features isn't the whole story though, as the Gaming 7 has two Gbit NICs, the Gaming 5 drops one of those for a WIFI controller. While the two motherboards have the same look from afar, if we look closer we see some other differences in areas from USB to the VRM, so today we will dive deep into the Gaming 5 and see what it has to offer.

Zotac GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme Review
The fourth aftermarket GTX 1070 Ti card to come through our labs, the Zotac AMP Extreme is undoubtedly the biggest and is definitely deserving of its ‘extreme’ moniker. However, size isn’t everything – even though the giant heatsink may suggest cooling performance will be excellent, we do need to put that to the test. Then there is pricing to consider, as at £479, the AMP Extreme is sitting right in GTX 1080 territory. So, is this card a must have or is it best avoiding? Let’s find out.

There are also issue relating its availability and non-reference editions. Regardless, the RX Vega 56 was enough to spook Nvidia. As a result, we see the GTX 1070 Ti.

Competition of any kind is good for the consumers!

While it is placed between two variants, GTX 1070 Ti seems closer towards GTX 1080’s performance. This is why they do not to allow its AIC partners to sell factory overclocked graphics cards. It is based on the Pascal architecture GP104 core using the 16nm FinFET process manufactured by TSMC. Unlike the GTX 1080, the GTX 1070 Ti uses GDDR5 memory chips.
