What is Spearblade?

Spearblade publishes stories, articles, commentary, news, reviews, and opinions by independent writers. We discuss, mainly, gaming hardware such as video cards (GPUs), processors (CPUs), RAMs, cooling, storage; gaming monitors; gaming laptops; gaming equipment; gaming components; gaming gear; and more. The general articles on Spearblade talk about gaming on desktops in general.

New video games, PS4 and Xbox gaming, PC gaming troubleshooting, in-game guidance – you name it. You’ll find plenty of content on Spearblade regarding niche topics ranging from liquid cooling to ray tracing, and we leave no stone unturned in doing our research and mentioning the technicalities.

Carefully disposing all the marketing lingo from our hardware talk while keeping it all simple, straightforward, and somewhat technical – we build content around the core value of true information. It’s more than likely that you’ll find the answer to a problem or help on a matter very quickly when you read an article on Spearblade. We don’t beat around the bush. We don’t write for the robots. We keep it simple and real.

Of course, we also have a gaming section. You’ll find us talking about console games, PC games, and sometimes even smartphone games. We don’t do game reviews or walkthroughs, however.
