Virtual reality arrived like a lion, with tremendous momentum that dominated conversations in gaming for months ahead of and immediately following the launch of the major headsets. Since the incredible wave of hype on which the hardware crested into our collective consciousness the conversation has become somewhat more muted, but make no mistake - VR is alive and well, and new games and hardware iterations are constantly materializing, slowly working the transformation from niche novelty to substantial mainstay.Part of the continued success of VR has blossomed out of non-VR applications. Fields like healthcare, where VR is helping to explore and map the human body and being used as a powerful teaching tool, or as diverse as tourism, architecture, or the automotive industry, have all found fascinating utility for VR technology.

AMD loves to provide PC users with a great $99 CPU, and with the Ryzen 3 2200G, it's delivered a genuine classic. Traditional wisdom suggests that when constructing a gaming PC, you need to purchase both CPU and GPU, but the Red Team's latest offering delivers an all-in-one package - a quad-core Ryzen CPU, paired with Radeon RX Vega graphics.
