Magazine Description

In this issue

Our fascination with high performance and precision can play out in many different ways. For starters, there’s our August 2016 cover story, It’s about time, which explores the world of precision timepieces – from heritage pieces, collectables and potential heirlooms to tech that pushes the envelope in ultra-thin wristwatches. Speaking of pushing the envelope, we delve into the mysteries of computer overclocking, gaining insights from a South African who, even at his tender age, has indulged in world-class exploits in the PC arena/ We also get our gaming on in Inside eSport. Of course, competitiveness reaches its peak during August with the Rio Olympics, so we look at the technology that’s driving American hopes of taking back the sprint crown and retaining dominance in other events. As always, we’ve got a great roundup of tech items in Great New Stuff and Tested, including the budget-busting Xiami Mi 5, as well as our usual eclectic mix of features, not forgetting our regular how-to feature, which gives you the low-down on how to get started in curing meat.
