We'll be slowing down a little bit over the coming weeks, following relentless CPU and GPU reviews for months, but will still be working on the RX 6900 XT, Cyberpunk 2077, and a few other things. Either way, news for the week includes Steam's Hardware Survey update for November, highlighting a push in CPU market share for AMD, despite overall low utilization in the GPU market. We're also covering new research into graphene heatpipes, ASRock adding its own "Clever Access Memory" for AMD GPUs on Z490 motherboards, MSI doing a similar move to add a resizable PCIe BAR to Z490, Rocket Lake, ARM, and a few other things.

GN is working with Eden Reforestation Projects once again to plant 10 trees per GN store item sold until December 18, 2020. This applies to multi-item orders (as a multiplier) and to back ordered items. You can grab mouse mats, modmats, bar runners and glasses, shirts, and more here and contribute to the cause:
