COVID-19 getting you down? Don’t worry Maximum PC has got your back. We all may be suffering in this crazy world we call life right now, but what better excuse to wile away the long hours tinkering with that favorite hobby of ours? And what better mag to have by your side while you do it?
This issue’s a big one, and for good reason. System building is at the heart of what makes Maximum PC what it is today, and it’s the key stone that holds our PC enthusiast passion together. Whether you’re an experienced system crafting veteran, or a rig building rookie you’re sure to find a ton of handy tips and tricks in our latest 10 page Builder’s Manual feature.
On top of that, our staff writer, Christian Guyton, takes a look at just where the future of Integrated Graphics will take us. With the likes of Intel’s Iris graphics ripping up the rulebook on what’s possible and AMD’s Ryzen APUs not far behind, will this finally be the year where we see desktop chips capable of driving AAA gaming experiences at 1080p?
Our contributing writer Neil Mohr has also taken the time to strip down just exactly what it is that makes web browsers tick for us all. Whether that’s the privacy worrying market dominance of Google Chrome, the open-source dedication of Firefox or more, we’ve got all the latest browsers benchmarked.
For our build this issue, we’re combining some of the best components NZXT has to offer, with its latest Kraken Z series coolers to bring to life a sub $2000 1440p gaming PC. Complete with all the tasteful RGB we could muster.
Combine all of that with a set of kick-ass reviews, tutorials, and columns from some of our very best writers, and we hope you enjoy this latest issue of Maximum PC.
