AMD Radeon RX 480 – Michael Passingham (@MrPassingham) has reviewed the all-new RX 480 graphics card. Solid 1080p and 1440p gaming performance as well as VR support for just £200/$200 makes the RX 480 a terrific card for gamers on a budget.
Bose QuietComfort 35 – Evan Kypreos (@EvanKypreos) drowns out the outside world with Bose’s latest active noise cancelling and wireless headphones. Are they worth the high asking price? Find out in Evan’s video review.
