Apart from the funny name, Schiit audio is creating some of the most popular audio equipment on the market. One of those popular products is the Schiit Fulla 2, a DAC/AMP combo priced at a mere $99.
A DAC/AMP is a nice solution if you want to upgrade your pc audio from the onboard audio to something a bit fancier. It takes your audio equipment out of your noisy Pc-case and puts it in a sleek USB package. The combo package also cranks up the quality of the sound and gives you the possibility to use somewhat higher end headphones with a higher impedance than your onboard audio. So this device is not exactly something you would use for your bargain bin IEM’s, but rather for those high-end AKGs or Senheisers.
AMD really did try with the 2990WX to offer something that was reachable for consumers that Intel wasn’t offering. I say reachable but I fully understand that an $1800 price tag isn’t exactly reachable. That and chances are that this part won’t be in stock for a while. Cool about this launch is that AMD is keeping the same motherboards. That means that you won’t have to buy anything other than the processor if you decide to upgrade.
Think epic piano player. Think supergeek. Now think Youtube channel and we are off to the races. Fabricio Vinheteiro plays the music with an almost unending stare into the camera, adding to the difficulty level of the piano tricks he tries to pull off.
It can’t be much of a surprise that youtube is ablaze with Threadripper videos. Why? Because the second generation of the premium desktop chips has just been announced. Below are some of my favorite tech tubers who get to unbox all that hardware goodness.
Official reviews are expected to drop on the 13th of August. Incidentally, that is the date the 2990WX will start selling. You can preorder now, but… well… don’t. Wait for the benchmarks.
