Ray Tracing Is Coming to a Whole Lot of GPUs Ray Tracing Is Coming to a Whole Lot of GPUs

If you thought ray tracing was only going to be possible on Nvidia’s pricy line of Turing GPUs, you would be wrong. Today the company has announced ray tracing support for a wide range of GPUs ranging from the Nvidia GTX 1060 all the way up to the super beefy Titan V. The 1060 can notably be found for as little as…

Lex Luthor Is the Villain Supergirl Has Been Waiting For Lex Luthor Is the Villain Supergirl Has Been Waiting For

I love comics. You probably love comics. Comics can be dumb, comics can be breathtaking, comics can be both. Comics, especially superhero comics, have a tendency to run through their story really quickly, focusing on the plot instead of the characters, and leaving you feeling a little empty unless it’s starring your…

This 65-Inch PC Gaming Monitor Burned My Eyes in the Good Way This 65-Inch PC Gaming Monitor Burned My Eyes in the Good Way

You’ve sat too close to the TV. Or to the screen at the theater. Everything warps when you get up close. People become giants. The screen seems to go on forever. Everything takes on that 8-Bit video game look as you can see the sharp outline of each pixel. But have you ever sat too close to a computer monitor? Can you…

Is There a Better Option Than an Instant Pot?

The Instant Pot is having a moment. Friends, family, and many, many of my co-workers can’t stop talking about the electric pressure cooker that ostensibly lets you do a lot more than cook stews and beans quickly. However, the Instant Pot is a brand, not a specific kind of cooker. There are a lot of other electric…

You Are Not Ready For HoloLens 2 You Are Not Ready For HoloLens 2

Microsoft figured it out. Tuesday I got my first opportunity to try out the HoloLens 2, and after slipping it over my head and taking a quick moment to calibrate the eye tracking, I was instantly able to move around the room and interact with objects crafted from light. It was annoyingly natural to participate in an…

Nintendo Does VR Now, Again Nintendo Does VR Now, Again

The Nintendo Switch already felt like the best part of a VR experience thanks to the wizardry of the Joy-Con controllers in some games, but now it’s going full VR. Tonight the company announced the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, an $80 Labo kit that lets users build a VR headset out of cardboard. This is the first major foray…

Dell XPS 13 Review: This Time It's Practically Perfect Dell XPS 13 Review: This Time It's Practically Perfect

The Dell XPS 13 has been so dangerously close to perfect for so long that the latest iteration left me a little surprised. I was turning it this way and that to find something I could fault it for, not because I wanted to unfairly ding the product, it’s just that nothing is perfect. But Dell has so refined this…

Okay, Supergirl is finally back from hiatus. For real this time. Honest.

Apple May Finally Add Sleep Tracking to the Apple Watch, Still No Word on Better Battery Life Apple May Finally Add Sleep Tracking to the Apple Watch, Still No Word on Better Battery Life

We’re up to the fourth iteration of Apple’s wearable, and the thing still can’t natively track my sleep. The Fitbit has been doing that almost from the beginning, and Apple has looked a little silly for lacking the feature. However, Bloomberg is reporting that Apple’s finally started testing sleep tracking, and it…

Ricoh Finally Updated Its Cult Favorite Compact Camera, and It's a Beauty Ricoh Finally Updated Its Cult Favorite Compact Camera, and It's a Beauty

The Ricoh GR II is a cult favorite—A tiny pocketable point-and-shoot camera with a big APS-C crop sensor and a fine 18.3mm f/2.8 fixed lens. While Sony dominates the point-and-shoot field with its versatile RX100 series, the GR II has been a minimalist alternative built for photographers who want to take a step back…

This Apple Rumor That Refuses to Die Is a Very Good Idea This Apple Rumor That Refuses to Die Is a Very Good Idea

This morning Mark Gurman of Bloomberg reported that sources tell him Apple is planning to create a unified app architecture that works across macOS and iOS, and that it ties into a bid to develop an Apple computer with an Apple-designed CPU inside. Your Apple apps will be cross-platform, and the line between iOS and…

'Human Eye Resolution' VR Is a Treat If You Know Where to Look 'Human Eye Resolution' VR Is a Treat If You Know Where to Look

VR is still in its infancy. It’s at the stage at TVs before color, or computers before they got personal. It’s easy to forget that because there are so many headsets (and cardboard boxes). But Varjo’s VR-1, a slick looking headset intended for the professionals making the content you’ll one day use, is a great…

Fujifilm's X-T30 Mirrorless Camera Is a Little Fussy, But Absolutely Gorgeous Fujifilm's X-T30 Mirrorless Camera Is a Little Fussy, But Absolutely Gorgeous

These days, it seems all you hear about are full-frame mirrorless cameras, with their glorious image sensors about the size of a 35mm film frame. Sony, Canon, and Nikon all seem to have their focus set on the market for high-end full-framers, but with few exceptions, Fujifilm has been steadfast, choosing instead to…

You Might Not Even Need a Mesh Router Like Eero You Might Not Even Need a Mesh Router Like Eero

You were all set to drop a few hundred dollars on an Eero mesh network. But then the company was purchased by Amazon, which you already know controls a big chunk of the internet, so maybe you’d rather it didn’t control your little private part of it, too. If you’re feeling stuck because you really need a new router,…

Now We Know How Much an 8K TV Will Cost (So Much) Now We Know How Much an 8K TV Will Cost (So Much)

Most of the major TV makers, like LG and Sony, were eager to show off their enormous 8K sets in January, but if you were struck with TV envy, you were frustrated because no one at the show was willing to talk about how much over 33 million pixels would cost. But Samsung announced availability and pricing today for its…

I'm Still Searching for a Laptop Bag That Doesn't Look Like Ass I'm Still Searching for a Laptop Bag That Doesn't Look Like Ass

As long as there have been laptops, people have been shoving them in bags. Incredible advances have occurred since that first big honking computer got shoved into a slighter bigger honking bag decades ago. Fabrics have grown more durable, straps more comfortable, and bag design itself has diverted into a wide number…

AMD's Radeon VII Is a Great Gaming Card, But That's Just the Beginning AMD's Radeon VII Is a Great Gaming Card, But That's Just the Beginning

AMD’s fighting competitors on all fronts. It’s battling Intel in the CPU space, with each company advertising more cores and tacking on more features to woo users (and manufacturers) away from the other. Yet its battle against Nvidia in the GPU space is different. While Nvidia comfortably dominates the high-end space,…

The Great Huawei Disconnect The Great Huawei Disconnect

Chinese tech giant Huawei is embroiled in numerous controversies including allegations of corporate espionage, fraud, attempted theft of a T-Mobile robot, and violation of sanctions against Iran. It’s also the manufacturer of great consumer products like a nearly flawless MacBook Air clone and one of the most…

Facebook and Google Clearly Don't Exist in the Arrowverse Facebook and Google Clearly Don't Exist in the Arrowverse

I can believe a child with dark matter shrapnel in her head can create a deadly dreamscape and plot to murder adults. I can believe a man can run faster than the eye can see. I can believe that someone out there in the multiverse would really date Sherloque Wells. But The Flash just stretched believability by…
