Palit Microsystems, mostly known for its custom graphics cards, has just announced two new SSD product lines. The Palit UV-S series uses the low cost triple level cell (TLC) NAND flash, while the GF-S series is "designed to perform for the gamers," and uses multi-level cell (MLC), offering better performance overall. As for the gamer-focused GF-S Series, the three drives here are largely similar apart from the storage capacities. The 120GB model has a max sequential read speed at 560 MB/s, but a
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 price-to-performance ratio is reason enough to consider the card, but if you're looking for added incentive to upgrade, you can now score a free copy of For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands. Initially the free game offer applied to qualified purchases of a GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080 card, desktop system, or laptop. It later expanded to included the GTX 1080 Ti after it launched, and now the GTX 1060 is joining the party. "The GeForce GTX 1060 is the ‘Recommended’ GPU for bo

Update (March 10): We've received a little clarification on the question of exactly how well Mass Effect: Andromeda will perform on a 3GB GTX 1060. At PAX East today, we asked producer Michael Gamble if the card would really deliver 30 fps at best on high. The recommended, at least on my machine at home, I have a 1060, I run at higher than 30 [fps] for the majority of the game. We have a GTX 1060 in the office, so as soon as we can we'll test Andromeda with it and report back on how it performs.
When AMD and Nvidia promise performance gains from a new driver, it's usually in the neighborhood of just a few percentage points. For those who are interested in taking in-game screenshots, Nvidia also added Ansel support to Ghost Recon: Wildlands. There are plans to add Ansel support to more games, including the upcoming Lawbreakers and Mass Effect: Andromeda.
