NVIDIA is giving away a Matrix Resurrections GeForce RTX gaming PC
NVIDIA has partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures on something truly magnificent: some one-of-a-kind custom gaming PCs that are being given away, with the very latest GeForce RTX GPUs and Matrix-themed builds.
The modded PCs are fully watercooled and customized, overclocked, and ready to give the red pill to any game you throw at it. The Matrix Resurrections debuts in US theaters and on HBO Max on December 22 and is the big reason why NVIDIA and WB have teamed up on this huge giveaway.
Don't fret, because if you don't win one of the Matrix-themed custom gaming PCs then NVIDIA is giving away 5 extremely rare custom The Matrix Resurrections GPU backplates that can be attached to NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti -- or alternatively, you could have them sitting up on your shelf (that's what I'd do).

MSI MAG Trident Z Mini PC: next-gen console size, 4K 120FPS ready
MSI is preparing its new MAG Trident S Mini PC and it looks pretty damn impressive, coming in at a very similar size to Microsoft's next-gen Xbox Series X console... check it out:
The company teased its new MSI MAG Trident S Mini PC at CES 2021 at the beginning of the year, with the compact PC packing an AMD Ryzen 7 4700G APU, and has support for cloud-streaming game services including NVIDIA GeForce NOW, PlayStation Now, and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
Inside, MSI has made some design tweaks -- but nothing majorly overhauled -- in terms of the cooling design, specifications, and features of the MSI MAG Trident S Mini PC. The final version of the MSI MAG Trident S Mini PC won't pack the Ryzen 7 4700G APU, but instead the newer Ryzen 7 5700G which is based on the Zen 3 architecture and has 8 cores and 16 threads of CPU power.

Apple's 2022 iMac Pro should have 27-inch Mini-LED panel, M1 Max SoC
Apple is still cooking up its new iMac Pro which should have some of the same innards and technologies that its new MacBook Pro includes, namely the Mini-LED display and in-house M1 Max or M1 Pro SoC.
According to the latest rumors, the next-gen Apple iMac Pro should feature an Apple M1 Max or M1 Pro SoC, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage for the base model. @dylandkt also mentions that the 2021 iMac Pro would have HDMI output, an SD card slot, USB-C connectivity, and a "similar design to iMac 24 and Pro Display XDR".
The starting price of Apple's new iMac Pro would reportedly be at, or over $2000 while Ethernet on Brick is standard and Face ID was "tested" but "not confirmed" while a release window of 1H 2022 was teased. All of the ports make the new iMac Pro very similar to the just-released 2021 MacBook Pro, which will be nice to see for desktop Mac users.

AORUS Project Cielo: modular gaming PC, looks like food dehydrator
GIGABYTE engineers have spent an untold amount of time designing what they consider the next-gen gaming PC, introducing Project Cielo.
Project Cielo might look like a food dehydrator but it's really a concept portable PC with 5G connectivity, a huge built-in battery, and bigger Bluetooth speaker at the bottom. GIGABYTE is silent on the internal specs of Project Cielo, but I guess it could have anything inside of it: Intel's new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs, or 13th Gen Core CPUs of the future alongside AMD's new Zen 4 chips coming in 2022.
Being a "next-gen gaming PC" we should expect a next-gen NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series or AMD Radeon RX 7000 series GPU, DDR5 RAM support, and PCIe 5.0 support as well. We can't have built-in 5G without the very latest CPU and GPU technology, right AORUS?
