Intel Core i7 8086K Limited Edition review

Whilst I’ve seen commemorative coins and stamps, I’ve never seen a commemorative CPU.

Intel’s Core i7 8086K is exactly that. The special edition chip celebrates 40 years since the launch of the original 8086 processor and 50 years since the founding of Chipzilla. Continue reading Intel Core i7 8086K Limited Edition review

Trust us, we’re Nvidia: GeForce RTX 20-series GPU preview

Nvidia’s ridiculously expensive RTX graphics have arrived full of promise, but with very little to actually show for themselves.

I’m currently reviewing a GeForce RTX 2080ti graphics processing unit. I’m not really ready to present my findings, because, well, to be honest, I’ve not really got anything for you. Continue reading Trust us, we’re Nvidia: GeForce RTX 20-series GPU preview

For a relatively small amount of money, you can have an easily accessed network of surveillance cameras, requiring no wiring other than a nearby domestic power socket.

Epson ET-M1120 mono printer review

Epson’s Ecotank ink delivery system has already turned colour inkjet printing on its head. The days of paying a tidy sum for a new printer only to find that its going to cost you an arm and a leg for ink are over. For a while now, Epson have been rolling out colour inkjet printers complete with a two-year supply of ink.

The ET-M1120 promises to offer the same deal for users that only require black ink. Whilst most of us probably though we were done with an Epson black and white print when we binned our LX80s, back in the day, there’s still a time and a place for mono printing.
