ASUS completely revamped the internal cooling system of the 2023 ROG Strix G16 by adding three fans to tame the powerful RTX 4060 GPU and the 14-core Intel Core i7-13650HX. Adding another fan always helps to improve thermals, but what is impressive about this configuration is that ASUS incorporated this solution without compromising the storage and RAM upgrades of the ROG Strix G16.
Despite including another fan, you still get two DDR5 RAM and two M.2 PCIe NVMe slots to populate in the future. Previously, even with a dual-fan solution, ASUS either soldered some memory to the motherboard or offered just one M.2 storage slot. Fortunately, this new approach is excellent, and what is even better is that you get a taller display without increasing the Strix G16’s overall footprint.

For $1,219.99 on Amazon, you get a 16-inch, 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD screen with a 165Hz refresh rate, which is ideal when running an RTX 4060 GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. Right off the bat, you get 16GB DDR5 RAM and 512GB storage, and as we mentioned above, both components can be upgraded. For a small performance uplift, ASUS has added a MUX switch to the ROG Strix G16, and the gaming laptop supports NVIDIA’s Advanced Optimus too. In simple terms, it means that switching from hybrid graphics mode to discrete mode does not require a system reboot, saving you ample time.
The battery is also a sizeable 90WHr cell that can be topped up using a USB-C power brick, but for the fastest wattage transfer, we recommend using the included charger with the barrel connector. At its lowest price of $1,219.99 on Amazon, the ASUS ROG Strix G16 exudes tons of value, and that is really saying something because the upgraded version of the exact same gaming laptop with an RTX 4070, Core i7- 13980HX and twice the available storage will set you back by $1,999.99 on Amazon.
That is more than a $700 difference for just 15-20 percent gaming performance, so it is a no-brainer which Strix G16 model should be your next daily driver. While waiting is your prerogative, there is no telling when a price hike will happen, so it is best to make the most of this opportunity.

The Tensor G3, like its predecessors, has likely disappointed potential buyers who eyed the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro as their next daily driver, but its sub-par performance and frequent throttling are attributes that Google has yet to address. However, as much as people like to talk about this chipset’s shortcomings, one feature is yet to be supported by any other smartphone SoC; AV1 encoding at 4K 60FPS. While this is an impressive addition to have, there is still one drawback that we have to discuss.
Apple’s iMessage is one of the most popular communications services in the world, with more than one billion users interacting with each other through various regions. However, that also makes it a paramount target against security threats, and even though quantum computers are several years away from materializing any kind of virtual offense, Apple likely wants to be ready before an event like this occurs. This is why the security layer of iMessage has been upgraded to post-quantum cryptography, and it will be available in iOS 17.4, iPadOS 17.4, macOS 14.4, and watchOS 10.4.
The Apple Vision Pro is a sturdy piece of glass and aluminum, but at the front, a previous scratch test revealed that the company used plastic, so getting permanent marks on it would take little effort. However, multiple owners are reporting that the front side of their AR headset are showing a crack while the device is just being stored and doing nothing else. This kind of occurrence would make anyone livid who has to fork $3,499 for a head-mounted wearable, and that too, for the measly base storage of 256GB.
Eluktronics is a relatively small player in a cluttered gaming laptop market, but it has managed to carve out a small chunk for itself by releasing various models at different price ranges. Its RP-15 G2 occupies the middle of the pack, but what is exceptional about this machine is that on Amazon, you are getting 2TB SSD and 64GB RAM as the bare minimum upgrade options, with the choice to configure your portable powerhouse with either an RTX 4060 or RTX 4070, and all of starts from just $1,299.
A smartphone’s battery is the least durable component out of the hundreds present inside that compact chassis, and its age will start to show after just a couple of years. Apple’s iPhone 15 series is no stranger to these degrading batteries, but thankfully, the company states that these cells are now more durable than previously estimated, thanks to the latest information provided.
The new Cortex-X5 design from ARM appears to be running into problems, with a new rumor stating that the super core is experiencing severely high power consumption at raised clock speeds and offering diminished multi-core performance when that maximum power limit is reduced. While this may not be an issue for Qualcomm as its Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is said to adopt custom CPU designs, MediaTek may be sweating profusely as it has to eventually announce the Dimensity 9400, which is said to adopt the same Cortex-X5 in its CPU cluster.
The Galaxy Ring might officially take shape during the second half of 2024, assuming the latest report’s information turns out to be legit. Typically, Samsung hosts a second Galaxy Unpacked event in July or August, but the new rumor also says that the wearable will not just be unveiled early but also come in different sizes to accommodate a bigger customer base. In short, Samsung appears to be going ‘all in’ in this new category, with earlier reports stating that various health features will be integrated into this device to make it a more appealing purchase.
An earlier rumor was disseminating information that Apple had halted work on its foldable iPhone because there were durability concerns regarding the display. Now, a new update claims that the technology giant is actively developing the device and has actually reassigned some key personnel hailing from the Apple Vision Pro team to work on this new form factor.
It was discovered by Wyze co-founder David Crosby that the company was able to identify 14 people who were able to see another person’s home where the security cameras were set up. Unfortunately, the problem is much deeper than previously anticipated, with a new report stating that 13,000 users were able to see each other’s video feeds briefly. This incident will undoubtedly wreak Wyze’s reputation, but it is also valuable insight for future buyers on what potential risk they are getting themselves into when purchasing a product hailing from this particular category.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPU are a lethal pairing when found in a gaming laptop, delivering incredible single-core, multi-core, and increased graphical performance in a wide variety of tasks, benchmarks, and, of course, games. When these cutting-edge parts are found in the ASUS TUF Gaming A15, which is now $300 off on Amazon, you should consider it the deal of a lifetime if you are looking for a capable machine that you can take with you for long periods away from the wall.
Samsung today received a new accolade, as its current-generation 7-inch foldable display has successfully passed the highly stringent military standard ‘MIL-STD 810G’ test that the U.S. Department of Defense recognizes. Also known as the American ‘Military Specification’ (MilSpec), several parts are evaluated and then taken through a series of tests to see if they qualify for this certification. Despite a foldable panel being less durable than a flat counterpart, it is impressive to see that this rating has been officially awarded to the Samsung camp.
Samsung announced its Galaxy S24 slightly earlier on January 17, with pre-orders commencing on the same day. A slew of effective strategies has allowed the Korean giant to garner more shipments from its latest flagship series than the previous Galaxy S23 family. According to the latest data, for the 5 months that started in November, the newer models have witnessed a 13 percent uptick in panel shipments, signaling that these handsets are more coveted by customers worldwide.
