AMD's B350 chipset appears to be the go-to solution for the new Vega-infused Ryzen chips we took a look at the other week. What makes most sense in our eyes is a small-form-factor board that doesn't break the bank. MSI is of this thinking and has had a solid line-up since Ryzen's initial launch last year. Bringing renewed focus to the micro-ATX form factor through the release of IGP-enabled CPUs, we take a closer look at the £80 MSI B350M Mortar.
This week's release of Ryzen CPUs enabled with Vega-class graphics has brought renewed focus to the AMD AM4 platform for users dipping their toe into mainstream computing. The Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G, priced at £150 and £90, respectively, offer a means of building a capable PC without breaking the bank. And that very integration of CPU and GPU removes the need for a discrete video card for many.
AMD introduced a whole host of Ryzen-based CPUs in 2017. These offered an impressive bang for your buck, so much so that Intel upped its own mainstream Core game by introducing 8th Gen chips imbued with more cores and threads than ever before. Ryzen was, and is, a good thing for the PC market. Though arguably offering better value than Intel across a broad price spectrum, initial stability concerns and, for some, a lack of built-in graphics took some shine away from desktop Ryzen.
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".
