Exhibit|January 2021
If you’re looking to buy a brand-new PC or computer components, then sadly you’re out of luck. Due to the pandemic, most of the components are out of stock or selling at an insanely high price. However, the upcoming year is going to be a great one, for Mac and PC users. All the major hardware companies including Nvidia, AMD, Intel and Apple are gearing up for a year full of exciting new launches. Let's look at all the upcoming PC tech products coming out in 2021.

1 AMD 5000 SERIES LAPTOPS

AMD have already proven themselves to be a leader in the desktop CPU market with their Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the upgraded ZEN 3 cores. Now the company is looking to dominate the laptop market as well with a launch of Ryzen 5000 mobile series APUs.

Very recently, Amazon Italy posted a product link for an upcoming Acer Aspie laptop featuring a Ryzen 5700U processor. The CPU chip in question is an 8-core 16-thread unit paired with a 1.8 GHz of the base clock and 4.3 GHz of boost clock. The new CPUs are based on upgraded Zen 2 and Zen 3 cores featuring performance improvements in double digits from 10% to 38% over the previous generation.

AMD will pair integrated Vega graphics with these chips with an additional graphical core pushing the performance to 5700U to 8 compute units clocked in at 1.9 GHz. However, to satisfy the need of gamers, these laptops will also come paired with Nvidia RTX mobile series GPUs namely, RTX 3060, 3050, 3070 and 3080 Ti. The starting range of AMD 5000 series laptops will be around Rs. 75,000 to 80,000 but they’ll provide noticeably better performance over laptops currently in this price point.

2 NVIDIA RTX 3000 SERIES DESKTOP GPUS

Nvidia exceeded everyone’s expectations when they released RTX 3000 series GPUs this year featuring RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070. Recently, they also released the super affordable RTX 3060 Ti with a price tag of ₹35,000.

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL

Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
