I’ve tested some of the best TVs available from LG, Samsung, Sony, and Vizio, all with HDMI 2.1 inputs that should deliver a gaming experience beyond anything previously possible. The only problem is that things don’t always work the way they should right now.
Even during our testing period, after the arrival of the PS5, Xbox Series X, and NVIDIA 30 Series GPUs, software updates dropped which fixed and / or broke some features, while others remain unanswered. Finally, LG’s excellent CX OLED represents the best that gamers can grab right now, while Vizio’s P-series Quantum X LCD is a performance option that costs a bit less. But given the glitches and weird glitches that still exist, it might be worthwhile to wait and see what the 2021 4K TVs have to offer before upgrading.

Elon Musk said the prototype received an “honorable discharge”.
For a few minutes, we were able to report the first test flight of the SpaceX Starship which did not end in an explosion. Then after SpaceX’s main stream cut, but while the enthusiasts like the people of NASASpaceFlight continued to broadcast, the SN10 prototype inadvertently enjoyed its second launch of the day, bursting off the airstrip in a fireball.
SpaceX has not officially announced details, but a small fire broke out after the rocket landed and speculation pointed to a methane leak. Still, the prototype passed its 6.2 mile (10 km) flight test and was the first to use its three Raptor engines as it performed an astonishing rollover maneuver before landing.
The ‘Switch Pro’ (or whatever the name is) looks set to be released this year.
Of course, you’re already bored of your PS5 and Xbox Series S / X. It’s time to start dreaming of a new console, right? Well, the Switch Pro rumors are back. According to Bloomberg sources, you could get a new hybrid console with a seven-inch OLED display that handles 720p resolution games, but can output 4K when connected to your TV.
In comparison, the original Switch has a 6.2-inch LCD display, while the Switch Lite has a 5.5-inch display, but both have the same 720p resolution. Nintendo is quashing rumors about next-gen consoles since the Switch became a hit, but it looks like the company is almost ready to reveal new hardware.
Fantastic is a new RPG headed to Apple Arcade later this year. It seems to merge these tropes of Japanese role-playing games of airships, mysteries, and magic with, uh, handcrafted dioramas. The characters and the rest of the game are then layered over these fully detailed rotating stages.
Each scene – there will be over 150 of them – was designed by artists from the Japanese film industry Tokusatsu, responsible for cities and fragile environments in Godzilla and Ultraman movies. While there is an awful lot of JRPG out there, even on mobile, this one is from Final Fantasy series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, and will have a soundtrack written by Nobuo Uematsu, who was responsible for countless melodies. Iconic RPGs.
It is still overheating, but less than at launch.
According to Steve Dent, Associate Editor, Canon’s 8K-capable EOS R5 isn’t for everyone. With in-body stabilization, a flip-up screen, excellent handling, fast and precise Dual Pixel autofocus, and 10-bit 4K 60fps video, it delivers stunning specs. It also delivers crisp, crisp videos and photos using Canon’s color science. Unfortunately, this $ 3,900 camera suffers from overheating issues when shooting in 8K or certain 4K modes, so it’s not suitable for events or long interviews. Otherwise, it’s by far Canon’s best full-frame mirrorless camera.
“Let’s Basic this bad boy.
Amazon is well known for its ways of copying, especially with its AmazonBasics product line, offering simple products that often seem very familiar. Peak Design called on the online retailer for cloning its products, likening its Everyday Sling to an AmazonBasics camera bag that shares the exact same name.
This highlights an uncomfortable aspect of Amazon’s business model, a the Wall Street newspaper report reviewed last year. According to former Amazon employees, the company had used proprietary data on sellers to design and price products internally – even though its own policies prohibited it from doing so.
If you can find one when it goes on sale March 18.
At $ 479, AMD’s RX 6700 XT is $ 100 more affordable than the RX 3800. It sits between the two best-value NVIDIA GPUs, the $ 399 RTX 3060 Ti and the $ 399 RTX 3070. The 6700 XT offers 40 compute units, a 2424 MHz gaming clock. and 12 GB of GDDR6 RAM, which is 20 less compute units and 4 GB less RAM than the RX 6800. But that should mean that this is a GPU that excels at 1440p, the current sweet spot for PC gaming and the happy medium between 1080p and 4K.
Just make sure you have room.
You no longer need to manually upload your iCloud Photos collection to upload it to Google Photos. Apple has launched a new service that automates the process – all you need to do is log into your iCloud account on the tech giant’s Data and Privacy website. After choosing to transfer your data, you will be prompted to sign in to your Google account to be able to complete the process.
Two things though: you need two-factor Apple ID authentication and enough storage space on your Google Photos drive, otherwise the transfer obviously won’t complete – and you could potentially lose photos. (Apparently, UK bureau chief Mat Smith has racked up 75GB of videos and photos in his iCloud account. And he’s not sure how that happened.) The prompts you’ll follow during the process will show you the size of your collection. You will get an idea of how much space you might have to free up or if you need to purchase more storage space.
