When the #Koenigsegg Regera made its debut a little over two years ago, news that the #hypercar would arrive without a transmission was a shock to many. No gears, no CVT, nothing. Thankfully Engineering Explained is here to help us figure out how the Regera can move at all, let alone approach 250 mph, without a transmission.

Lately, #Dell has been able to deliver notebooks that bring a smile to our faces, especially when a new XPS laptop slides across our desk. It hasn't always been that way, but since revamping the XPS line, starting with the XPS 13 back in 2015, Dell’s premium laptops have been leaders in the ultrabook market, especially in the 15 and 13-inch formats. While its looks have not changed, the XPS 15 (9560) has traded up to seventh generation Kaby Lake processors and Pascal graphics, by way of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1050.

The #McLaren F1 is on the list of all-time great vehicles, and it's positioned somewhere near the very top of that list. It set a top speed record that lasted from 1998 all the way through 2005, until the Bugatti Veyron came along to set a new standard. While the Veyron is technically amazing, the rarity of the F1 still sets enthusiasts' hearts ablaze. McLaren produced just 106 examples, and the one you see here is one of the rarest on the planet.

Would you use your wealth to buy expensive toys or would you share the love? You should know those two concepts aren't mutually exclusive. One #McLaren P1 owner understands this and has found a great way to do both. His custom P1 was just offered up for sale at the Gooding & Company auction during the Amelia Island Concours, and all of the proceeds went to a smart cause.

#Qualcomm ’s new Snapdragon 835 SoC (or Mobile Platform, as Qualcomm is referring to it now) was already looking like a notable improvement over the Snapdragon 820 and 821. The Snapdragon 835 is expected to provide up to 11 hours of 4K video playback and more than a day of talk time on next-gen smartphones with a single charge, for starters. However, it will also serve up hours of VR gaming and claimed general performance lifts of up to 25 percent in both CPU and graphics/gaming workloads.
