The Chainsmokers - Sick Boy Music Album Reviews

Trading away the dance-pop trifles of their hits for a faceless stylistic shuffle, the duo seems to be tiring of itself, too.
We’re going to be stuck with the Chainsmokers forever. Though the unctuous duo of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are probably not destined for decades of unqualified success, their insipid spin on EDM’s big-money boom has become as much an eye-rollingly omnipresent part of our national fabric as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Most living humans in the Western world have likely had the unfortunate sensation of having a Chainsmokers hit stuck in their head, as gross as gum on a hot bus seat; after all, their Coldplay collaboration, “Something Just Like This,” seems made only to ooze from department-store speakers for eternity. There’s even a goddamn feature-length film based on the M83-aping “Paris” in development. Like so many modern American atrocities, the Chainsmokers are just something we’re going to have to endure.



New AMD Ryzen 3 Processors Leaked

AMD’s series of 7nm processors, named Matisse, are arriving in 2019 and Russian price tracking website E-Katalog has listed their specifications.

Russian price tracking website e-Katalog has posted some specifications for AMD’s new series of 2019 processors. It should be said that these specifications should be taken with a pinch of salt until officially announced but they do still look fairly believable.

AMD’s new processors, codenamed Matisse, will use the 7nm process while Intel will only be using a 10nm processor for its 2019 series. Intel has long held a general performance advantage over AMD on a core-by-core comparison but this trend could be about to reverse with these specs listed below.

The new AMD processors are suggested to be announced at CES next week, but here are the rumoured specs for the series:

Specifications And Features
Ryzen 3 3300
6 / 12
3.2 / 4.0GHz
Ryzen 3 3300X
6 / 12
3.5 / 4.3GHz
Ryzen 5 3600
8 / 16
3.6 / 4.4GHz
Ryzen 5 3600X
8 / 16
4.0 / 4.8GHz
Ryzen 7 3700
12 / 24
3.8 / 4.6GHz
Ryzen 7 3700X
12 / 24
4.2 / 5.0GHz
Ryzen 9 3800X
16 / 32
3.9 / 4.7GHz
Ryzen 9 3850X
16 / 32
4.3 / 5.1GHz

These are some very impressive numbers at very impressive price points, particularly so if AMD once again packages its solid air coolers with its CPUs. AMD is certainly applying the pressure in the consumer processor market, and seeing Intel’s reaction will be extremely interesting.

Take a look at our take on the battle between Intel and AMD.

AMD is also carefully following Intel's naming convention perhaps in what seems like a very direct attempt to be compared against the old rival. This speaks to the confidence that AMD has in its products moving forward which will make the next 12 months all the more exciting in the processor space.

Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
