Emil “Magisk” Reif, formerly known as Magiskb0Y, is a Danish professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player who currently plays for Team Vitality.
Prior to Vitality, Magisk played for Astralis, where he had an absolute tear, including winning three Majors in a row, a record shared only with his teammates.
The Dane’s fans value his decisive abilities, so knowing his playing and streaming setup proves invaluable. Its game settings are also readily available.
A fast response time, 240Hz refresh rate, FreeSync and G-SYNC support mean this gaming monitor delivers exceptional motion handling and clear images in fast-moving situations.
The BenQ XL2546 features a 25-inch screen with 1080p resolution, ideal for competitive gamers, although it may seem limited for general-purpose users who appreciate larger panel sizes and higher resolution. Lack of HDR support and poor viewing angles can also be a deal breaker.
For those who are a firm believer in headshots at 4K resolution, the BenQ XL2546 is a solid contender, thanks to a smooth and responsive gaming experience.
The lightest gaming mouse Logitech has ever produced has been stripped down to the bare essentials in the Logitech G Pro X SUPERLIGHT, putting performance front and center.
The SuperLight is nearly identical to the original G Pro, aside from the added RGB lighting, minimal weight, and fixed thumb buttons only on the left side (the G Pro has removable thumb buttons on both sides, in keeping left-handed players in mind).
The Logitech G Pro X SUPERLIGHT delivers class-leading performance, thanks to low click latency, high polling rate, and easily adjustable DPI, customizable in 50 increments, from 100 DPI to (an absurd) 25,600 DPI . It all comes down to fine-tuning. It also offers more than 70 hours of battery life, which allows for long sessions.
For full performance without all the bells and whistles, the SUPERLIGHT is a solid choice; just be prepared for the hefty price tag of $200.
Choosing a mouse pad that is comfortable and suitable for your personal gaming style plays an important role in gaming performance.
With its all-fabric design, the Logitech G40 lets users navigate effortlessly. With this, it is ideal for low to medium sensitivities. However, higher sensitivity users shouldn’t feel quick to pass up as there’s plenty of surface area (45.5cm x 40m) and texture quality for quick control and stopping power.
The Logitech G640 is a great mousepad (compared to the smaller, thinner G240 and the monstrous-sized G840). For a closer comparison, the Zowie G-SR is nearly identical except for the added friction for size-conscious users, positioned for users with higher sensitivities.
In terms of keyless mechanical keyboards, few surpass the Logitech G Pro.
It features exclusive Logitech GX Blue Clicky switches, which provide tactile and audio feedback, thanks to a slight bump just before key actuation. Logitech offers its own interchangeable tactile, linear, or clicky switches if the pre-installed switches aren’t for you.
Thanks to the minimal solid and flexible design, the keyboard itself is quality. The keystroke feels quite light and very responsive due to the low latency and short pre-travel distance of the switches. There is also a customizable backlight, which will delight RGB lovers.
For PC gamers looking for a comfortable headset that’s easy to wear all day, the Corsair HS80 delivers.
The mic is high quality, with a broadcast-grade omni-directional microphone that’s great for crystal-clear in-game communication. Minimal bass response and not-so-great battery life (although you can game while you charge ) may be a deal breaker for some, however.
For PC use, audio output is easily adjusted with iCue (Corsair’s “fully immersive software ecosystem”), while console gamers don’t have that luxury. Overall, the Corsair HS80 is reasonably priced and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
In 2020, the Intel Core i9-10900K processor featured the fastest gaming processor on the market.
The Core i9-10900K still delivers top-notch gaming performance and stands up to single-core workloads. Thanks to ten cores, 20 threads and a maximum boost frequency of 5.3 GHz, this processor holds its own.
One of the main drawbacks is the lack of PCIe 4.0 support, which allows your PC to use the latest CPUs and SSDs to their full potential. None of the Comet Lake-S processors support PCIe 4.0, which is a significant oversight from Intel, as the lack of support means choice limitations in a few years.
So while the Intel Core i0-10900K processor delivers impressive performance, taking advantage of higher multi-core performance means single-core numbers matter less and less, which is essential for tackling the latest games and the most efficient.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 is a powerhouse, delivering a significant leap over 20-series GPU benchmarks across the board.
For anyone looking for a very capable card for 4K gaming, the RTX 3080 offers 20-30% better performance than the RTX 2080 Ti and (more impressively) 50-80% better than the RTX 2080. That means refresh rates faster, top-notch resolutions and performance.
Availability is another story, thanks to long-running chip shortages and intense demand. If by chance one becomes available, jump on it immediately, or it will be sold out in no time.
