Nvidia SUPER cards now in stock - 09 Nov 2019
We have upgraded our range of Nvidia GTX and RTX cards to include all of the refreshed and upgraded SUPER versions.
The new SUPER cards have all of the features of the previous cards with improved clock speeds for superior performance.
The good news is that this performance increase does not come with the usual price increase so, aside from the RTX 2060 SUPER, the prices remain the same!
The reason that the RTX 2060 SUPER is more expensive than the RTX 2060 is that the memory has also been increased from 6GB to 8GB to match the rest of the RTX range, so you can crank you settings up even higher without losing those precious frames.
The newest member of the SUPER range is the GTX 1660 SUPER which is priced the same as the GTX 1660 but reaches performance comparable to the GTX 1660Ti, and even beats it in some titles. This is thanks to the upgrade from GDDR5 to GDDR6 and slight clock increases.
Soon to join the SUPER family is the GTX 1650 SUPER which will offer even greater performance increases over the GTX 1650.
Head over to our Custom Gaming PC section now to choose your perfect spec Gaming PC!
Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1903) - 24 May 2019
All of our Windows 10 PCs and Laptops now ship with the latest Windows 10 May 2019 update version 1903.
This new update brings many benefits over the previous October 2018 version 1809 update;
A new light theme -
The biggest new visual change to Windows 10 in the May 2019 Update is a new light theme. It takes over as the default theme for Windows 10 Home, and it’s essentially a white version of the currently black theme that most people use in Windows 10. The default wallpaper has also been tweaked so it better fits in with the new light theme.
Windows Sandbox (Not available in Windows 10 Home) -
Windows Sandbox is a new virtual machine that lets you run your Windows 10 within a secure environment away from your main installation. Windows Sandbox creates a temporary, isolated, desktop environment without the hassle of setting up a full virtual machine. This allows you to do things like test out a suspicious file or program without the risk of infecting your PC. When you close the Sandbox everything contained within it is deleted.
Uninstall built-in Apps -
Windows 10 May 2019 update now gives users the freedom to remove more of the built-in apps suchs as Groove Music, Mail, Calendar, Movies & TV, Calculator, Paint 3D, and the 3D viewer.
Cortana has split from Search -
Cortana has now been separated from Windows search, meaning that text searches now use Windows search instead of Cortana and Voice searches will use Cortana. The new search interface includes your top-used apps, recent activities, and files, with options to filter by apps, documents, email, and web results.
Pause Windows Updates -
All Windows 10 users will now be able to pause updates, and can even choose when to install the latest major version. This means you will be able to simply stay on an existing version and continue to receive monthly security updates, avoiding the latest feature update.
Password-less Microsoft Account -
You can now create a Microsoft Account without a password by simply entering a phone number as the username, and a code will be sent to your mobile number to initiate a login. Once Windows 10 is logged in, you can then use Windows Hello or a PIN to log in to your PC without ever using a password.
