  Amazon’s Black Friday 2020 sale on Sony wireless headphones starts right now Amazon's Prime Day deals on Sony headphones were terrific, but wait until you see what's waiting in the early Black Friday 2020 sale that just kicked off. Deep discounts slash prices as low as $68 for Sony true wireless earbuds, and wildly popular $200 Sony over-ear noise cancelling headphones are down to $88. The stars of the sale are the class-leading Sony WF1000XM3 noise cancelling earbuds on sale for $168 and the lowest price ever for the incredible new Sony WH1000XM4 over-ear noise cancelling headphones.

The fall was undoubtedly the time of desktop computers . Many gamers and the tech industry were obsessed with desktop-class chips, be they AMD's newest Ryzen central processors, its latest Radeon RX graphics chips or rival Nvidia's latest RTX series of chips. In all cases, people were barely able to get their hands on any of the components, with stock shortages lasting from the early fall and expected into this summer.

At $399, the RTX 3060 Ti provides faster performance than the RTX 2080 Super or the RTX 2080 graphics cards, each of which started at $699 in 2019 and 2018 respectively.

The biggest announcement for desktop computer users was Nvidia's new RTX 3060. The new chip, meant to start at $329, is meant to offer slightly lower specs than the company's other RTX cards, including the RTX 3060 Ti, which starts at $399.

As Nvidia's newest entry-level chip, the RTX 3060 is meant to entice people who use older-generation chips. Nvidia said it offers 10 times the performance of 2016's GTX 1060 and twice the performance of 2018's 2060. Nvidia said its 3060 will go on sale in February.

Nvidia also announced new chips for laptop computers . Among them was the RTX 3060 chip for laptops, meant to run popular games like Ubisoft's hacker adventure Watch Dogs : Legion at standard 1080p HD. Nvidia boasted a laptop powered with the chip should run 30% faster than Sony's just released $499 PlayStation 5 video game console. The laptops powered with that chip should start at $999.
