Best computer for casual gaming and web browsing

There are two kinds of computers in the market – one is for doing daily tasks and second type is for professional users and hardcore gamers. So, if you are looking for best computer for casual gaming and web browsing, the first type will give you an underpowered computer. The second type will be expensive and you will never be able to fully utilize the power. So what should you look for when choosing the best computer for casual gaming and browsing?

Graphics card – The top end computers come with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti/1070/1060 or AMD RX580/570 graphics cards which are overkill if you are a casual gamer. Those GPUs are ideal for 4k 60FPS gaming. As expected, they are expensive. Get a computer with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1030 or 1050 GPU. AMD RX560 is excellent budget buyas well and works like a charm for casual gamer. These GPUs support hardware acceleration which makes web browsing experience better.

Processor – The top end machines feature lots of cores and threads. They run at incredibly high clock speeds and thus cost a lot of money. If you are a casual gamer, something like Intel Core i3-7100U should suffice. It is a 7th generation processor and extremely efficient. Even AMD A10/A12 APUs will work just fine when you are browsing on the various online gaming sites and gaming portals. Web browsers are getting more and more CPU intensive and multi threaded, modern processor like the one mentioned above will help deliver smoother experience.

Screen resolution – Many people skip this part. Screen resolution plays a crucial role in gaming, even for a casual gamer. Full HD resolution is a must have in ultrabooks, laptops and desktop computers. A full HD screen ensures you are able to see more at a time which is helpful while doing web browsing. Also, since so many pixels are tightly packed, everything looks crisp. While it is totally possible to find 4K monitor in more expensive laptops and computers, they are not cheap and again, overkill for casual gaming. They also make the text look way too small, which puts strain on the eyes.

Storage and memory –For most computer games, 1TB hard disk is more than enough. You will find hybrid storage in high end laptops but they are easily drive the price up. Now, let us talk about memory. Most modern games eat around 8GB RAM while running. More is better so make sure you are able to upgrade it to 16GB RAM in future. If you have tight budget, just make sure it has 8GB RAM minimum otherwise you will have several hiccups while playing modern games.

Intel Z390 motherboard spotted in SiSoft Sandra benchmark

Intel-Z390-motherboard

Z390 Express Socket LGA1151 manufactured by SuperMicro has been spotted on SiSoft Sandra benchmark. It is surprising to find indications of this chipset since its launch is scheduled for the second half of 2018, which indicates that Intel may be trying to accelerate its launch. According to the manufacturer’s official launch schedule, the Z390 Express chipset should be launched in the second half of next year, and would come after the H370 Express, B360 Express and H310 Express chipset that will arrive in the first half of 2018. This is the reason why it is strange to see already signs that there are already motherboards with the Z390 chipset, and not only because it seems too early because we should have seen something from the others before, since they will be launched to the market beforehand. 

The Intel Z390 Express chipset adds some improvements to the existing platform (Z370) but nothing particularly substantial. Things like a programmable quad-core DSP audio processor or the SoundWire audio interface are fine, but they can not be considered important. There are other things that do have something more important, such as the integrated USB 3.1 controller, the WLAN controller 802.11ac integrated – yes, with an external PHY, SDIO controller for card readers also integrated, or compatibility with the new controller Thunderbolt 3.0 “Titan Ridge”. They are improvements to the platform that have more or less weight, but as we said nothing that has a real weight on the platform.

We’ll see anyway what happens in the end. Since the manufacturer of the plate is SuperMicro, a manufacturer that usually focuses on OEM and industrial systems rather than the general public, it is quite possible that it was simply an oversight by an Intel engineer who was doing the first tests and forgot to uncheck the option to upload the benchmark result directly to the database after the test.

HP 12 inch convertible laptop with Snapdragon 835 processor running Windows 10 spotted on Geekbench, specs inside

hp-snapdragon-835

First HP laptop with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and windows 10 has been spotted on popular benchmark website, geekbench that has given us some information on its specifications. Scheduled to be launched at the end of 2017, this HP 12 inch laptop is a convertible laptop with touchscreen display that can be used as slate tablet by folding the screen. Specifications include Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it runs Windows 10S / Windows 10 32 bit OS. Processor’s clock speed is said to be between 1.9-2.2GHz backed by 4GB / 8GB RAM so the performance is not going to win any awards.

However, the price is going to be much cheaper than its Intel counterparts. Plus, the battery life is going to be much more than any other Intel processor. We are not saying there are no Intel-powered laptops with long battery life but they are no way as efficient as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

That being said, if you are planning to use your laptop for heavy duty tasks like Auto CAD or Solidworks or gaming, do not even think of buying a laptop with ARM processor like Qualcomm because they simple do not have enough power to run 3D modeling applications smoothly.

Asus FX553 VD VE Overheating Problem solution

Asus-FX553-VD-VE-Overheating-Problem-solution

If you own a Asus FX553 VD or VE and find the laptop running incredibly hot, we have a solution for your problem. But first we need to understand why the Asus FX553 runs so hot. The main reason is the fact it comes with a standard voltage processor which has a tendency to run so hot. However, there is a limit to everything and if the temperature crosses a limit, the laptop will turn itself off.

Many users of Asus FX553 laptop say that the processor reaches as high as 88 degrees Celsius and GPU reaching as high as 80 degrees. Excessive heat is not good for either graphics card or the processor and can significantly reduce the lifespan of your Asus FX553 laptop.

Even if you take your Asus FX553 to service center, they would not do anything other than applying some simple thermal paste here and there.

There is a solution to overheating problem though – by buying the IC Diamond thermal paste, the laptop’s temperature will go down considerably. This means you will have open the laptop to get access to the motherboard where you will find both the processor and graphics card. Applying some IC Diamond solves this problem.

Gfycat Minute-Long GIF Support Added

Gfycat has added a new GIF feature that promises to transform how we share short form content: longer GIFs that fully capture product demos, gamer reels, tutorials, and DIYs. Until now, the Gfycat supported only 15 seconds GIF which was not enough most of the time. The company listened to its customers and has added support for minute-long GIFs now.

Gfycat Minute-Long GIF

So, now the users do not have crop or speed up their highlights, or find other ways to “hack” Gfycat’s 15-second limit. Users begged and pleaded for longer GIFs to fully capture their moments of glory. In response, Gfycat decided to roll out one-minute GIF support so gamers could create better highlight reels, makeup artists could create better DIY videos, and chefs could better demonstrate their recipes.

Richard Rabbat, Gfycat CEO said

Gaming is a 91 billion dollar industry, and obviously we want to ensure that gamers bring out their inner creator through the tools we provide to make the best possible content. The short video has become a core part of how we interact today, whether that’s in the form of a GIF, a snap, or an Instagram video, what we’re witnessing is a seismic shift in communication.
