Razer’s Tomahawk modular gaming PC is finally a real product

Razer has been talking up modular gaming PCs with streamlined swappable parts for years.

The Tomahawk is the final version of what we saw at CES 2020 back in January. It’s a simple case design with two PCIe slots: one for a full-sized GPU, and one for an Intel NUC Element board that contains the CPU, the RAM, the storage, and basically everything else you need for a functional PC.

2020 was a year when people around the world were forced to find new ways to connect, and that trend is clearly visible when you look at the most downloaded apps on Apple hardware.

Developers are emulating PS2 games on the Xbox Series S and X using RetroArch

Developers have now made it possible to emulate PS2 games on the Xbox Series X and S using the RetroArch emulator — something that the PlayStation 5, a successor to the PS2, can’t.

It’s housed inside a reconstructed Bowser’s castle and makes use of AR and... Read More
