GTX 1070 – What’s the hype? The Refresh

Welcome to The Refresh, a new series from TrustedReviews where we pick out this week’s highlights from the tech world.

This week on The Refresh:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Review – If you’re in the market for a new graphics card, the 1070 should be at the top of your list according to Alastair Stevenson (@MonkeyGuru). Alastair reviewed NVIDIA’s latest graphics card and joins me on The Refresh to explain what’s so good about it.

Resident Evil 7 VR – If you’re a fan of horror games, check out our resident gamer Brett Phipp’s (@inverteBrett) hands-on with the Beginning Hour, a preview of the upcoming Resident Evil 7 VR game. There’s nowhere to hide in virtual reality!

1,000 Core Processor – Scientists at the University of California have developed a record-breaking 1,000 core processor. Known as KiloCore, it’s so efficient it can be powered by a single AA battery. That all sounds great – but can it play Crysis?

Zuck Off – Posing for a photograph to celebrate Instagram’s 500 million active users, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s personal laptop can be seen with tape covering the webcam and headphone/microphone port. Are you worried about hackers spying on you too? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Tune in next Friday for another episode of The Refresh with Tom Honeyands (@TheTechChap).
