Gaming on a Chromebook - is it possible?

Gaming on a Chromebook - is it possible?

Chromebooks are typically seen as cheap pseudo-laptops that are only fit for typing notes and browsing the web. While that was certainly the case years ago, Chromebooks and Chrome OS have rapidly matured over the past few years. Modern Chromebooks are capable machines, and while Chrome OS still has its limitations, the devices are more than glorified web browsers. Case in point: Chromebooks are now able to competently game, though there are still some caveats.

88% Acer ConceptD 5 17 inch Review: Missed the passing lane

Good is not good enough. While the Acer has some very good features, it is not sufficient for the top. Acer's 17-inch notebook is almost a workstation, and it is well-positioned with its i7-9750H and GeForce RTX 2060. The matte display also does not need to hide with its 100% sRGB coverage and a high AdobeRGB percentage.

Exclusive first benchmarks of 10th gen Comet Lake-H demonstrate Intel's leads in single-core but not too far ahead of AMD Ryzen 4000

We got exclusive access to first benchmarks of the Intel Comet Lake-H Core i9-10880H, Core i7-10750H, and the Core i5-10300H. We compared single-core and multi-core performance of these chips with contemporary offerings from AMD viz. the Ryzen 9 4900HS and the Ryzen 7 4800H, and also 9th gen Coffee Lake-H Refresh CPUs. Although the scores further re-iterate Intel's lead in single-core performance, we see that AMD has successfully managed to narrow the gap significantly while maintaining good leads in multi-core tests.
