Acer's Nitro 5 gaming laptop now packs a six-core Intel processor

Acer's Nitro 5 gaming laptop has never been particularly remarkable outside of its price, but you might have reason to sit up and take notice after today. The PC builder is launching a version of the 15.6-inch portable with options for shiny new six-core Intel Core i7+ processors. If you're playing CPU-heavy games or need some extra power for video editing, this might fit the bill without crushing your bank account.

Intel brings a six-core i9 CPU to laptops

With its latest batch of 8th-generation Core chips for laptops, Intel is focused on delivering even more desktop-like performance. Just take a look at its new six-core monster processor, the Core i9-8950HK. We were impressed that the company was able to bring quad-core chips to ultraportables with its first batch of 8th-gen CPUs, but the 8950HK lives up to the crazy specifications we'd expect from the i9 lineup (which includes Intel's insane 18-core desktop chip).

The next big 'Destiny 2' update involves a revamped mobile app

Bungie only just released Destiny 2's "Go Fast" update, but it's already set to talk about its next releases -- and this time, the most important moves are outside the game itself. The studio is readying updates to both the Companion mobile app and its website that will make them decidedly more useful when you're away from home. An April 4th update to Companion for Android and iOS will bring back the 3D models available in the original Destiny era. You can not only see what your Guardian looks like with equipped gear, but explore your weapons, vehicles and ghosts. It's helpful for bragging rights with your friends, of course, but it also gives you a better reason to dig through your equipment when you aren't playing.
