23.7-inch LG UltraFine Display Review
After discontinuing the smaller 21.5-inch UltraFine Display, LG has released a new larger 24-inch UltraFine-labeled monitor in its place at the same $699 price point. If the launch of the new display flew under your radar, thats probably because much of the spotlight was centered on Apples new 2019 MacBook Pro models, which launched alongside LGs new display.
This new UltraFine Display is like a combination of the UltraFine 5K and the older UltraFine 4K Display, and for the most part thats an okay thing. The biggest feature is the inclusion of not just one, but two Thunderbolt 3 ports. Thats an improvement over LGs previous Apple-centric displays, as youll see in our hands-on video review.

AMD Zen 2 CPUs to Support Official JEDEC 3200 MHz Memory Speeds
An AMD-based system's most important performance pairing lies in the CPU and system RAM, as a million articles written ever since the introduction of AMD's first generation Ryzen CPUs have shown (remember the races for Samsung B-die based memory?). There are even tools that allow you to eke out the most performance out of your AMD system via fine memory overclocking and timings adjustment, which just goes to show the importance the enthusiast community derives from such tiny details that maximize your AMD Zen-based CPU performance. Now, notorious leaker @momomo_us has seemingly confirmed that AMD has worked wonders on its memory controller, achieving a base JEDEC 3200 MHz specification - up from the previously officially supported DDR4-2666 speeds in the first-gen Ryzen (updated to DDR4-2933 speeds on the 12 nm update).

Benchmarking AMD FX vs. Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPUs Following Spectre, Meltdown, L1TF, Zombieload
Now with MDS / Zombieload being public and seeing a 8~10% performance hit in the affected workloads as a result of the new mitigations to these Microarchitectural Data Sampling vulnerabilities, what's the overall performance look like now if going back to the days of AMD FX Vishera and Intel Sandybridge/Ivybridge processors? If Spectre, Meltdown, L1TF/Foreshadow, and now Zombieload had come to light years ago would it have shaken that pivotal point in the industry? Here are benchmarks looking at the the performance today with and without the mitigations to the known CPU vulnerabilities to date.

Bosma X1 Review: A Decent Indoor Security Cam That Lacks Polish
Our verdict of the Bosma X1:The Bosma X1 gets the job done well enough but lacks the polish and extra features to justify its above-average price.610If you havent already, you should invest in an indoor security camera as a kind of insurance. It may never actually prove useful, but you dont want to be in a position where youre burgled or violated and not have any footage. The Bosma X1 indoor security camera kit is available for $119, which includes a few bells and whistles on top of the base camera.

Google Pixel 3a XL Review
When's the last time you saw a full-featured smartphone launch for well under $500? There have been a few to hit the market in this price range recently, usually with significant caveats, but in general the trend is towards more expensive flagship devices that are commanding upwards of $1000 quite often. Google's new Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, however, buck this trend with HD OLED displays, big batteries, and the same great camera configuration that made Google's higher-end Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL the Android phones to beat, when it comes to smartphone photography. The new Pixel 3a is a 5.6-inch device, for folks who prefer their phone be a bit more pocketable, but the Pixel 3a XL sports a 6-inch display, for those like us who want more screen real estate...

Windows 10 May 2019 Update Feature Focus: Light Themes And Sandboxes
This week, Microsoft officially rolled out the Windows 10 May 2019 Update to the world.
