It occurs to me that Tech journalism is like most journalism, mostly crap with a few hidden diamonds in the rough.

Far too few people (including me) know about the good stuff.

So, starting with my very limited knowledge on PC technology

Hardware Canucks:

https://hardwarecanucks.com/

They do mostly hardware, and their reviews don't seem to be shit.

Overclocker's club:


Used to do a lot of well... overclocking and hardware testing. Though it looks like they have shifted away from that and into gaming.

AnandTech:


Lots of industry announcements, some reviews. They seem to pick up on leaks quickly.

HEXUS.NET


More industry announcement stuff, some gaming, some mobile. I think AnanTech is better.

I think I will occasionally come back through and amend the OP with your undoubtedly brilliant recommendations.

I disagree about Hardware Canucks. When the 5700XT came out, they tried really hard to justify the 2070's existence, which boiled down to ray-tracing. A feature that costs too much on performance for more accurate reflection, what a deal.

Epic has the right idea.

I didn't see Gamers Nexus, so I recommend that.

They're good, here's a link to the YT channel.

They also have a site with write-ups to complement the videos and that's where all the graphs and charts can be found if someone would like to take a closer look.


A channel that isn't news but still interesting is Budget Builds.

Instead of testing the latest, greatest and most expensive hardware the guy running it does videos on how old hardware performs today and how cheap you can make a gaming PC and get away with it using second hand parts from eBay. It might not be for everyone but I find it interesting to see how a $500 card that can be bought for $10 today performs in modern games, same with CPUs and the like.

F2F tech is really good too with that

OSReviews doesn't flare up their product overviews or hype up basic stuff as anything other than a utility, so if you need a zero-frills product review for everything down to earth and affordable I'd recommend.
