AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 family lineup is expected to include multiple cards, spanning entry-level, midrange, and premium GPUs. Like the 5000 series, AMD could offer an RX 6300 as a successor to the RX 5300 at the entry-level spot and position its RX 6500 and RX 6300 as midrange offerings to take on Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070. At the premium end, AMD could replace its RX 5700 with a new RX 6700.

The patch mentions Sienna Cichlid, which is the rumored codename for AMD's Navi 21-based graphics card. It's not like it's the first time that AMD is incorporating USB-C on a graphics card either. The Radeon Pro W5700, which is powered by Navi 10, comes equipped with a USB-C port. However, this might be the first time that the chipmaker is putting one on a gaming graphics card. … [Read more...] about AMD Embraces USB-C For Some Navi 21 Radeon GPUs

After determining how much you want to spend, you’ll need to narrow down what style of Dell laptop you want. Convertible 2-in-1s have grown popular enough that there are plenty of these to be had for cheap today, but if you want a laptop that can also do some gaming, you’re going to pay more for that extra hardware. Do you want a 1080p display, or is 720p good enough? Do you need an SSD? Do you need more RAM than the standard 4GB-8GB that you usually find on cheap laptops?
