Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review: 4K gaming is here, at a price

Nvidia’s next generation of graphics cards is finally here, and it comes with big promises. The RTX 2080 is supposed to be up to 75 percent faster than the GTX 1080 in certain games, and it’s designed to finally deliver the ultimate goal of 4K gaming at 60 fps.

The new RTX 2070 (starting at $499), RTX 2080 (starting at $699), and RTX 2080 Ti (starting at $999) are all powered by the company’s Turing architecture, and...

12 cool new iOS 12 features that let you do with your iPhone what you couldn't

Despite that Apple focused most of the talk around its iOS 12 changes on what is going on under the hood, it hasn't stopped at just performance and stability enhancements in comparison with iOS 11. There is a whole slew of new features, some of which users have been clamoring for since the Smartphone Ice Age (grouped notifications), but some that are brand new and fun, like the Memoji avatars that present your lovely self to the world as your creator intended. These smaller changes and features add up to a markedly new experience on your iPhone, and you will...

And for Mac heads looking to make the upgrade, Apple also offered an incentive to do the right thing with your old smartphone: Recycle it, and get a little pocket change in return. Apple's GiveBack program will pay you up to $525 for a good condition iPhone X, and in descending amounts for previous models—cracked screens, water damages, dead batteries, and all. Just...
