The Epic Game Store's battle against the PC gaming monopoly of Steam continues. For many months, the vocal opposition has made it very clear that they are unhappy with Epic's strategy of buying timed exclusivity deals with games, thus beating Steam to the punch of some of the most highly-anticipated releases. However, despite the apparent dislike of the moves and he boycott claims, it is starting to bear fruit for the upstart launcher. With the recent reports making the Epic Games Store look even more appealing to PC game developers, the competition may be starting to wear on Valve's titanic platform.
The mini laptop is powered by a 7-watt, 14nm quad-core processor with a base CPU speed of 1 GHz and a max turbo speed of 4 GHz. It's unclear what that will mean in terms of a real-world performance boost over previous-gen mini-laptops which typically topped out at 5 watt Intel Core i7-8500Y dual-core chips with 1.5 GHz and 4.2 GHz boost speeds.
The OnePlus 7 Pro feels like the first device from the company that has truly entered the hyper-premium space. It's bigger, faster, and more expensive than any OnePlus device before it. The company clearly listened to fan input around the design of this phone, but it also added features made to directly compete with Samsung and Huawei and it shows in the price.
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are sequels to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max - if there was any doubt. They are just as big, with similar designs and screens, but come with improved performance, some big camera upgrades, larger batteries, and a new Apple U1 wideband chip. Indeed, there is a lot to explore, so don't let the familiar looks fool you. The new triple camera is brand new, though. Now in addition to the wide and tele shooters, there is an ultrawide snapper. Night Mode finally makes it to the iPhones, and the 4K capture at 60fps gets the cool extended dynamic range as well. Probably the most awesome feature, showing off the power of Apple's chip, is the option to shoot with all four cameras (incl. selfie) at once. At 4K at 60fps with no limits. Imagine that!
