First up, MSI and other motherboard manufacturer's have begun to push out BIOS updates in preparation of Raven Ridge APUs from AMD to make sure they are supporting the latest AGESA standard. This will be important for memory compatibility, overclocking and PCIe support.
Intel's Coffee Lake have gained ground on AMD Ryzen in the past two months, actually surpassing them for the first time in sales since mid-2017. A German retailer shows huge gains for the Intel 8700K. Ryzen 5 1600 continues to top the charts for AMD on Amazon, but not enough to surpass the two previous i7 CPUs from Intel.
PUBG, or PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, will soon deploy a new anti-cheat system which will stop players from using post processing tool, Reshade. Important to note is that it won't ban players for trying to use it, but they just simply won't be able to play. Bluehole has also reported players using Shadowplay to stream or record gameplay could encounter issues as well, although they've said they will be working on addressing these problems as soon as possible.
Lastly, just a quick mention that Rainbow Six Siege will be receiving a free weekend from February 15-18th so that's a good time to try the game out if you've not played it already.
