HWZ Deal Alert: 21 June 2019

HWZ Deal Alert: 21 June 2019

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

There’s an expression describing the balmy heat of June, i.e., the dog days of summer. Popularly thought to be referring to “lazy dogs” lounging around in the summer heat, the phrase actually refers to the appearance of the dog star, Sirius, on evenings in July, in the Northern Hemisphere.

At times, it’s just human tendency to go with a simple, logical explanation, instead of recalling the true origins.


ASUS Expedition Radeon RX 570 4GB (OC edition)

This Polaris-based graphics card from ASUS is going for S$139, which translates to a heavy discount of over 62% off its initial launch price of S$369! According to Fuwell’s social media post, this card has been restocked at its store after its initial batch was sold out. Why the surge in interest in this AMD Radeon RX 570 GPU? Is it because cryptocurrencies are back in vogue due to Facebook’s Libra? Whatever the real reason is, we think it’s hard to pass up a good bargain!
