We’ve got a few of reviews this week in a variety of categories. AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 earned a score of 3 out of 10 from Devindra Hardawar, who found that the GPU’s underwhelming performance and functionality made it difficult to commend, particularly while chip shortages have driven up costs.

Despite improvements to the cameras, software, and performance, Cherlynn Low finds that the Surface Duo 2 is a difficult phone to use. It remains an expensive and specialized foldable smartphone at $1500. The most recent edition incorporates a screen with a combined 8.3-inch display and runs Android 11.

The Cerlynn loved the 90Hz refresh rate, as well as the AMOLED displays and video quality, but she was disappointed that the Duo 2 doesn’t have any functionality when closed because it doesn’t have an external screen.

Devindra Hardawar asked who the Radeon RX 6600 is for in his evaluation of it. While the GPU’s load time performance is impressive, its ray tracing was subpar at best, and its upscale capabilities are restricted.

According to Devindra, the RX 6600 is a capable gaming graphics card during testing. While playing Destiny 2 at maximum settings, it reached 120FPS, but when he pushed the game to 1440p, it stumbled.

Nicole Lee likes the Portal Go’s redesign changes, which now feature a grey fabric enclosure and rounded corners. The improvements make it possible to hold the Go on your lap or walk around with it while propping it up.

Nicole appreciated the 10.1-inch display’s video capabilities, which are identical to those seen on previous Portal devices. She was especially happy with the adaptive lighting features, such as Night Mode, which reduces blue light exposure at night.

I was interested in Talli’s specialized hardware after I discovered the app I use to keep track of my twins’ daily routines. The Talli is a sleek box with eight buttons that’s designed to help time-strapped parents monitor their children’s statistics with a single button click.

The Talli tracker also works with an app that records and graphs your child’s daily activities. The software is standalone, so you won’t need the physical gadget to use it, and there isn’t a subscription required to access features or data.
