FOR YEARS, the Titans have reigned as the kings of the graphics world—mighty GPUs that are more of a show of force than anything regular mortals should purchase. The first of the Titans rose from the primordial dust so long ago that most of us can barely remember it. 2013 seems but a fond memory now. After seven descendants, however, the Titans have finally been dethroned. RTX 3090 has kicked their collective butts into Tartarus and staked a claim as the ultimate gaming GPU for the rising generation. It’s generally much faster than the Titan RTX and costs $1,000 less.

Lenovo Yoga 9i (15-Inch): A Competent Convertible
We recently reviewed the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga 9i, a compact convertible laptop with plenty of upside, but maybe you’re in the market for something a little larger. Its big brother, the 15.6-inch Lenovo Yoga 9i, brings the same high-quality hybrid form factor to a roomier display. Of course, the increased size makes the larger Yoga a little unwieldy as a tablet, but it also delivers more power. (The hybrid’s snappy Intel Core i7 H-Series CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics will impress.) Long battery life and an included stylus sweeten the pot for what is a good if not standout convertible. The premium HP Spectre x360 15 remains our favorite big-screen 2-in-1 machine.
