Samsung Galaxy Fold

The Best Tech of the Decade 45 |

Just like the original iPhone and the iPad, and Samsung's own Galaxy S -- the new Galaxy Fold is a game changer. Samsung was the first to market with a foldable smartphone in the Galaxy Fold in 2019 and after spending a week with my own personal unit, I have to say I'm beyond excited about the future of foldable smartphones. Samsung is simply giving us an early glimpse at the future, and it truly is a game changer.

Qualcomm - 5G Connectivity

The Best Tech of the Decade 46 |

We might not all use 5G right now but the speeds are there and they're going to blow our minds (and probably our data caps). Qualcomm has led the charge when it comes to 5G technology, with the Snapdragon X55 modem and new Snapdragon 865 processor to pack 5G connectivity in 2020 smartphones and beyond. We can expect 5-7Gbps over 5G which is absolutely insane. 5G will power the next generation of devices, and some.


The Best Tech of the Decade 47 |

AMD originally launched the first-gen EPYC processors in 2017, but with a new server/datacenter platform it takes years to mature and show users and clients that you new platform that is kicking Intel ass, is something worth investing in. The first-gen EPYC wasn't a huge seller but it proved what AMD was doing with its Chiplet technology, so in 2019 when it launched its second-gen Zen 2-powered EPYC range with 64C/128T the world was truly blown away and customers flocked to the new EPYC chips.

AMD Ryzen 3000 Series

The Best Tech of the Decade 48 |

2019 was the year Intel fell on its sword, losing out with its 14nm+++ processors to AMD hitting its stride on 7nm with the new Zen 2 architecture and Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. AMD offred up the flagship Ryzen 9 3900X with 12C/24T for mainstream/high-end gamers/content creators at up to 4.6GHz which in today's standards is kick-freakin-ass.

Streaming Wars

The Best Tech of the Decade 40 |

The streaming wars really heated up in 2019, with Netflix continuing to dominate the streaming world but the introduction of Disney+ in 2019 has changed things up. Disney own Pixar, LucasFilm, Marvel Studios, and a bunch of other properties in between giving them immense power for the continued streaming wars. The streaming wars will only grow stronger with the introduction of HBO Max and others in 2020 and beyond.
