PCI Express 6.0 paves the way for faster SSDs and graphics cards in 2021

I wrote at the time that AMD Ryzen support for PCIe 4.0 was already last generation, and from a technical standpoint, that's true. That was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, though, because even as of this writing, you can't run out and buy a PCIe 4.0 motherboard. We've seen several drive makers announce PCIe 4.0 SSDs that boast rated sequential read speeds of up to 5,000MB/s. PCIe 5.0 and PCIe 6.0 blow the doors wide open for even speedier drives. Even if the standard is ratified next year, it could

Newegg’s Corsair Strafe Mechanical Gaming Keyboard deal is a steal at $45

A great mechanical keyboard can make or break your gaming experience. Newegg's Corsair Strafe Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is 54% off now, making it just $45 from its original price of $99. We weren't a fan of its lack of dedicated media keys or wrist rest, and noted that it could be cost-prohibitive at its original price. However, with a deal like this, it's well worth adding to your keyboard rotation if you need a reliable, good-looking keyboard that won't break the bank. Be sure to pair your ne

Remnant: From the Ashes trailer explores the gloomy wasteland

Remnant: From the Ashes, Gunfires Games' cooperative survival shooter, is set in a devastated world full of radiation and monstrous beasties, and in a new trailer we get a closer look at the aggressively unpleasant wasteland players will fight their way through in a couple of months. "From the lonely desert dunes, to the dark canyon crevices, Rhom contains echoes of a once great civilisation," reads the trailer synopsis. Last week we got to see another trailer, revealing at the PC Gaming Show. "

Alpha Protocol has been removed from Steam

Alpha Protocol, one of the best spy games on PC, has been removed from Steam. "At the request of the publisher, Alpha Protocol is no longer available for sale on Steam," a notice reads. "Following the expiry of Sega’s publishing rights for Alpha Protocol, the title has been removed from Steam and is no longer on sale," a Sega spokesperson told me. If you own Alpha Protocol, you'll still be able to play it, and you'll keep being able to download it whenever you want. Alpha Protocol isn’t a classi

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will bring back Bloodlines’ freaky dance moves

Nightclubs are a central component of the overall Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines experience. Bloodlines had some pretty wild (and weird) dance floor moves, and I am incredibly pleased that they'll be returning for Bloodlines 2. Lead user interface and experience designer Rachel Leiker told Kotaku that the actual arms-flailing, hips-twisting, frenetic Bloodlines breakdown original is back. "Night clubs are kind of core to the experience of being a vampire," Leiker said. Vampire: The Masquer

Cooler Master launches a ‘hypnotizing’ CPU liquid cooler

Peripherals of all kinds with RGB lighting are commonplace now, to the point where even your next toaster might have programmable LEDs. Called the ML240P Mirage Pro, the new cooler uses RGB lighting, because almost everything does these days. The result, according to Cooler Master, is a "hypnotizing light show." However, kudos to Cooler Master for trying something new. I've reached out to Cooler Master for availability and pricing information for the US and will update this article when I hear b

Dell has long been turning out some of the best gaming PCs. They're built well, and they lack the loud gamer aesthetic and high prices of the company's Alienware-branded computers.

Respawn is ‘never gonna make an Apex 2’

Apex Legends is a more languid sort of battle royale than most others, at least in terms of its development. But that's not a sign that the developers aren't thinking about the game's long-term future. "We're never gonna make an Apex 2; hoping next Season 72 is awesome," he said. "That's kind of where our head is at: how are we setting this up for the long term." Apex Legends season 2 is set to kick off on July 2, but some very interesting things are already happening.

This build-it-yourself Windows 10 PC teaches kids the basics of building and coding

Now it is venturing into somewhat new territory, though, with its first build-it-yourself Windows 10 PC. Kano partnered with Microsoft for this new product offering, and the idea is to introduce kids to the basics of building a Windows 10 PC (Windows 10 S), and using it to write code. The new Kano PC, however, is "designed for a broader age set" and is based on a x86 Atom processor. "We’re very excited to partner with Kano for the launch of the Kano PC. Alex Klein, co-founder and CEO of Kano, to
