Nvidia Titan X Pascal Review - The Fastest Consumer GPU Available

Fast, faster, fastest. Two months after the launch of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founder's Edition, the Nvidia Titan X was introduced to the public on 8th of August 2016.

A souped-up Y700. The higher-end Y900 feels unique with more features and better craftsmanship than its immediately Y700 predecessor. Unfortunately, its chiclet mechanical keyboard, loud pulsating fans, and high starting price leave a lot to be desired.

The $1000 13-inch convertible. The Core m Broadwell and Skylake series have made it possible to design even thinner and lighter notebooks powerful enough for basic home, school, and multimedia use. Add in 360-degree hinges and these can potentially double as a Windows tablet. We compare two from Lenovo and Asus to see how they stack up against a more "traditional" Skylake U-class convertible from Dell.
