Description

This week, Avram Piltch discusses his reactions to CES 2019 and what he sees as the trends that can be expected as we head into 2019. The real winner of CES, and possibly of the entire year, is AMD. As the company expands its reach and enhances its product offerings, chief competitor Intel is struggling to keep up. Intel has had production issues and has not been able to keep up with demand, leading new consumers and manufacturers to explore AMD-powered products. Another big trend of CES was RGB-enhanced products, which will make the next version of the Tom's Hardware RG-Beast experience even better.
