While console gaming sees the rivalry between , PC gamers are equally zealous about the conflict of Nvidia vs AMD, the two top companies . Unfortunately, if you don’t pledge brand loyalty to either of these companies, it’s easy to get left behind in the arms race between these two. As 2017 comes to a close, competition in the GPU space is especially heated. The Nvidia GeForce 10 series, based on the Pascal architecture, debuted in May of last year and is showing no signs of stopping.
Now that we've had some time to stew on it following the soft launch of Coffee Lake on October 5, let's talk AMD vs Intel. The two chipmakers have been going head-to-head for a few months now -- ever since Ryzen dropped back in March if we're being honest -- but is there a clear winner? That's what we've set off to explore in this article. You see, if the motherboard is a PC's skeleton, the CPU or processor is the brains of the operation.
Priced at $159 (£159, about AU$200), the Razer Wolverine Ultimate controller for Xbox One and PC isn’t without its drawbacks. However, its many advantages – including both its fantastic aesthetics and responsive buttons – should be enough to win zealous gamers over. Two years ago, Microsoft proved that there’s market for a $149 (£129/AU$195) premium Xbox controller.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
