You may not know the name Doug Cockle, but the odds are pretty good that you know his work. He provided the voice of Geralt, The Witcher, guiding the character from humble roots in 2007 to major mainstream success as one of the most recognizable and fully-realized videogame protagonists of all time.

One of the perks of AMD's recently announced third-generation Ryzen 3000 CPU lineup is support for PCI Express 4.0, a faster bus protocol that paves the way for speedier graphics cards and quicker NVMe solid state drives. Support for PCIe 4.0 is baked into AMD's new X570 chipset. Up until now, motherboard makers had the option of releasing BIOS updates for older models to also support the feature, with AMD's blessing.
