Why Microsoft might go with an Intel chip in a new budget 10-inch Surface

While ARM might make more sense in a budget Surface designed for casual use, there’s good reason why Microsoft may opt for Intel instead.

Earlier this week, a new report emerged online that claimed Microsoft is planning to ship a new budget 10-inch Surface device later this year. The last time Microsoft updated its « budget » line of Surface tablets was in 2014 with the Surface 3, which shipped with Windows 8.1 and was powered by an Intel ATOM processor. A lot has changed since then; ATOM is more or less no more, and Microsoft has started investing in bringing Windows 10 to ARM processors.

Microsoft’s budget line of Surface tablets have never been power-houses, and that’s because they’re not supposed to be. The Surface RT, Surface 2 and Surface 3 were all aimed at doing light productivity work and normal consumer-related activities. If you needed a device for video editing or a more heavy workload, you’d spend a little more and get a Surface Pro. But the standard, non-pro line of S…

Samsung reportedly started an R&D division for its foundry business

Samsung’s semiconductor division has been doing exceptionally well in the recent past.

Rainbow Six Siege’s next Elite skin unmasks Thatcher

Ubisoft has unveiled the next Elite skin hitting Rainbow Six Siege, alongside Operation Para Bellum.

Ubisoft has broadcasted its full reveal for the next season of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, titled Operation Para Bellum. Hosted alongside the official Pro League Finals at Atlantic City, the showcase provided a deeper dive into upcoming Operators, maps, and other seasonal changes. Concluding with an unexpected surprise, we received a brief look the new Elite set for Thatcher.

We’ve seen a steady stream of premium Elite skin sets this year – most recently for Valkyrie with a retro-style war photographer theme. The new cosmetic set for Thatcher departs from the line of throwback designs, embracing a more modern uniform for the Operator. This also serves as his first face reveal, after exclusive wearing a gas mask in the past.

Details on the new Thatcher skin set are somewhat limited, with only its victory animation showcased during the show. We know a new uniform, weapon …

Rainbow Six Siege Operation Para Bellum: Everything you need to know

From new operators to new maps, plus new tools to take care of foes, there’s a lot coming in the next Rainbow Six Siege season.

Following the launch of last season’s Operation Chimera, Ubisoft is looking at what’s next for hit tactical shooter, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. After a diverging from its traditional content structure with a zombies-themed Outbreak event, the next drop is set to return to the established multiplayer-centric formula.

Laser League Xbox One review: A heart-pounding competitive experience

Laser League may be easy to play, but mastering it is an exciting and thrilling challenge unlike anything else on Xbox.

If you took the aesthetic of TRON, Rocket League’s sports theme, tactical decision making, and blended it all together, you’d get something similar to 505 Games’ Laser League. In truth, though, it’s a unique experience at its core. If you’re a fan of intense, fast paced action and class-based tactics, then Laser League is definitely for you — provided you can look past a number of caveats.

Microsoft testing new ‘Departments’ menu in the Microsoft Store on Windows 10

Microsoft is making a small change to the Microsoft Store that better promotes the different types of content you can get from the store on Windows 10.

Microsoft appears to be testing a new « Departments » drop-down menu in the Microsoft Store app on Windows 10 that better promotes the different types of content you can find in the store itself. Unlike other platforms, the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 is home to more than just apps and games; it includes movies, TV shows, hardware, extensions, and much more.

It has often been said that discovering all the types of content on the Microsoft Store is a difficult endeavour, thanks to the apps’ not-so-great navigation system. The new Departments menu should better showcase the different content users can find on the store, as said menu is categorized into four main areas: Software & apps, Entertainment, Devices, and Deals.

Each category lists five different areas in which you can find content in the Microsoft Store. For example, t…

Samsung Q7F

See at Amazon

The 7QF ($1,499) is a solid piece of kit. Ignoring the QLED marketing jargon, this 4K HDR TV series is a good option for Xbox One X (and Xbox One S) owners to enjoy 4K gaming. This doesn’t offer the best visual quality on the market, but at this price point, it’s not meant to. The best part is the Q7F will not destroy your bank balance.

Bottom line: A well-priced panel that cries out for an Xbox One X and some 4K gaming.

One more thing: The external connection device for this TV means you can better manage all the cables going into the set.

Why the Samsung Q7F is the best 4K HDR TV for the Xbox One X

The Samsung Q7F series offers incredible visuals and is ideal for taking advantage of the Xbox One X capabilities.

Now that the Xbox One X is available for purchase, it’s time to start thinking about 4K and HDR to take gaming on Microsoft’s console to the next level.

Chime in: Are you frustrated with Microsoft’s lack of support outside the U.S.?

Microsoft is often criticised for its lack of commitment to countries outside of the United States, but it’s a real problem for those of us who aren’t US bound. We want to know your thoughts!

Microsoft makes many products and services, spanning from hardware to software, but more often than not a lot of what Microsoft makes available is only available in the United States. Most of Cortana is still U.S. only, with only a subset of Cortana’s features available in other markets, for example.

Surface devices are often only available first in the U.S before coming to other countries too, which is frustrating if you’re someone who wants the latest and greatest from Microsoft as soon as it’s available….

HP Envy x2 Always-Connected PC review: Lots of potential — and some compromises

Windows 10 on ARM is not for everyone, but for me, the Envy x2 has become an essential daily tool that I won’t give up.

The HP Envy x2 is garnering a lot of interest – and skepticism – as it is one of the first new PCs to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Snapdragon 835 used in the Envy x2 is found in many popular smartphones and questions remain about how good it can be at powering a full desktop OS like Windows 10.

As it turns out, the Envy x2 with its exceptionally long battery life, always-connected 4G LTE, and instant-on abilities indeed is a marvel. It is, in many ways, an iPad Pro but with Windows 10. That’s not to say there aren’t some rough spots, but if you stick to apps in the Microsoft Store, it is a surprisingly satisfying experience.

The $1,000 price will deter some, but that shouldn’t for everyone. The Envy x2 is made for a specific user, and it has become one of the most transformative devices I have used in recent years.

Dell XPS 13 (9370)

See at Dell

It’s pretty well known by this point how much we love the Dell XPS line, and the updated XPS 13 9370 model (starting at about $1,000) makes things smaller and more powerful. The 13.3-inch display has thinner bezels and is available in 1080p or 4K touch, 8th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors (CPU) bring four cores of power, and the smaller body is available in a white and gold color combination along with the original carbon fiber version. Toss in a battery that still lasts a workday and you have one slick little device.

Bottom line: For the best Dell laptop there is, check out the updated Dell XPS 13 9370….
