GPU Review: MSI RTX 3060Ti Aero ITX OC LHR

  The MSI RTX 3060Ti Aero ITX 8G OC LHR (Aero 3060Ti for short) is a one-of-a-kind video card.

The next smallest 3060Ti is the EVGA RTX 3060 TI XC Gaming, and is nearly 3cm longer at 201.8mm long. Three centimeters may not sound like much, but in the small form factor world it’s the difference between a card that fits and buying a new case. For those that need a card …

David Does Tech Stuff Pits Top Top Gaming PC Against Minisforum HX90

David Does Tech Stuff’s latest video pits two tiny gaming PCs against each other in a showdown: Top Top Gaming Mini PC vs Minisforum HX50. The HX50 comes packing a Ryzen 5900X with integrated Vega 8 graphics while the Top Top comes with Intel mobile CPUs up to the i9-9980HK and a GTX 1650.
