 UPDATE: 15th Nov, 2019 – After the recent poll, “Which headset is the best?”, the ¬¬azn:HyperX Cloud Stinger[HyperX Cloud Stinger]¬¬ got voted for the best option at a price tag of $44. A lot of people have left great comments about the ¬¬azn:SteelSeries Arctis 3[SteelSeries Arctis 3]¬¬ too, so if you want a headset that's a bit more premium then you can get pick that up for $60, provided you don't mind spending a few extra bucks.
This is a strange one considering how long Apple and Valve were at loggerheads while Valve tried to bring the Steam Link app to iOS, but the two American giants have allegedly agreed a partnership to develop an augmented reality headset.
AMD is gearing up for a strong 2020 thanks to the arrival of the next-gen consoles. CEO Lisa Su followed up Team Red’s recent fiscal results with a discussion on the upcoming consoles, both of which feature AMD Radeon and Zen hardware.
While it’s playing second fiddle to the newly announced GeForce GTX 1660 Super, the ¬¬gc_id:4832[Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super 4GB]¬¬has also been announced today. We’ve got a little wait on our hands until it launches on November 22nd but the GeForce GTX 1650 Super is also built on the TU116 GPU and, according to Nvidia, offers twice the performance of a Pascal-powered ¬¬gc_id:3541[Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050]¬¬.
Finally, the GeForce GTX series has gone Super. Nvidia has taken the wraps off of the ¬¬gc_id:4722[Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB]¬¬, a direct replacement for the current ¬¬gc_id:4095[Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660]¬¬.
A mysterious new AMD Navi GPU has just passed RRA certification with all signs pointing toward this being the eagerly anticipated ‘Big Navi’ chip. An AMD device code named the  “ATI-102-D18802” passed through South Korea’s National Radio Research Agency, the RRA. This means the chip has been finalised in terms of mass production and availability and whatever it is should be heading to market within the next handful of months.
Intel has officially announced the ¬¬p_id:2625[Intel Core i9-9900KS 8-Core 4.0GHz]¬¬, a special edition processor which will be heading to store shelves near you from October 30th. The high-end chip will be priced at $513 and it’ll actually be a limited edition part so if you want in, you may want to make up your mind early.
With both Nvidia’s GeForce RTX Super series and ¬¬gc_id:4548[AMDs Radeon RX 5700]¬¬ graphics cards now on store shelves, the trickiest part for gamers is deciding which to go for. Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards typically command a bit of a price premium, but they’ve also got an ace up their sleeves in the form of real-time ray-tracing support. 
The ¬¬gc_id:4722[Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB]¬¬ may be the world’s worst kept secret but it’s still officially a secret all the same. Now, Nvidia has allegedly officially informed certain members of the press that the GeForce GTX 1660 Super is the real deal and it will be launching in exactly one week’s time.
I must confess I somewhat naively assumed that the capacity for developers to make a game look better was, automatically, a good thing. Detractors of real-time ray tracing technology have taught me the errors of my ways though. Progress is bad. Old is good. Or so say the proverbial sticks-in-the-mud who would perhaps prefer things stay exactly as they are or, heaven forbid, to even crank us into reverse and shift our industry backward. Back toward the primordial goop as two white paddles thwack a white cube across a dotted white line. The good old days, when everything was better and we didn’t have to worry about what a pesky polygon is. Meanwhile, I’m sitting here wondering how great ray-traced Pong would be.
