The Need for speed
Last year was an interesting time in hardware development. The highlight was arguably the release of NVIDIA’s latest flagship, the GTX 1080 (reviewed in Issue 105). There have also been advances in other areas, in particular drive technology with improved support for an emerging standard called M.2. Although it was initially announced in 2013, it was not until recently that it started to become more commonplace. This year promises to be equally exciting and started with a bang when Intel unleashed its latest processor codenamed ‘Kaby Lake’.
