The 13 independent drivers and the AMBEO technology work as virtual speakers, recreating a surround sound installation and placing you in the center of the action.

The PS5 is almost here, with its competition looming. As your game library grows, you’ll need space to save your new treasured titles, along with extra room to save your old favorites. The WD_Black P10 Game Drive comes in up to 5TB that can save up to 125 games, so you don’t have to compromise which games to delete on your console or PC in order to make room for new ones.

Predator Orion 9000

Designed for hardcore and professional gamers, the refreshed Predator Orion 9000 (P09-920) delivers extreme performance, advanced cooling and easy upgradability. A gaming monster, this series packs a powerful punch with up to an Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor, dual NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards in SLI mode, up to three 3.5-inch HDDs and two 2.5-inch SDDs with a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C hot swap dock for SSD/HDDs. Three 4.7-inch Predator FrostBlade fans provide up to 16% more airflow and 55% increased static pressure compared to prior generations 1, while a CPU liquid cooler fan keeps the temperature low as battles heat up.

Sonos Arc Soundbar

More than a soundbar, Arc brings brilliant sound to anything you can stream, tuned for what’s playing from the TV to music, podcasts and radio when the TV is off. The Arc’s Dolby Atmos sound field is generated by 11 Class D digital amplifiers that power 11 custom drivers. Eight of those drivers are elliptical woofers evolved from those in the Beam (four along the front, two on top and one in each end), while the other three are silk-domed tweeters that are all built into the front but with two firing diagonally into the room.

The Arc uses its array of speakers to bounce sound off your walls and ceiling to create a 3D audio effect, and the soundfield is once again tailored to your room using Sonos’ Trueplay technology.

Think of it as the ultimate gaming PC, we’re talking an 8-Core 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 25% faster graphics with NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER, and up to 300Hz FHD matte displays for an obscene competitive advantage in high-FPS games. Unleash your creativity anywhere with its visually stunning OLED 4K display featuring 100% DCIP-3 color space, and experience all this performance packed into in a durable, precision-crafted aluminum chassis that remains as compact as ever at up to 0.7-inches thin. Now with the option to pair a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics, the Razer Blade 15’s potent performance is fully capable of powering through creative tasks with ease, and can handle the running and streaming of the latest AAA games simultaneously—including support for real-time ray tracing.
