    One Plus 3/3T undercuts other premium phones on price for as good (if not better) quality.

    A real sleeper is Highpoint's RocketRAID 3840A NVMe RAID controller:
    one of the first NVMe add-on cards with full x16 edge connector,
    and four U.2 ports. Upstream bandwidth = 15,753.6 MB/sec.
    which is faster than DDR3-1600 x 8 = 12,800 MB/sec. As such,
    mass storage is now surpassing the raw speeds of some DRAM.

    The best I have bought in my opinion was my Broadwell-e i7-6900K

    other than that there has been a lot of good tech, but none that stand out to me to be better than the rest.

    does hololens count for 2016? If yes this.

    Otherwise Surface studio for sure, as a graphic designer I felt ecstatic just by looking the introduction video!

    RGB products! /s
    Puts hands over face and prepares for a beating.

    Seriously though,
    Too many to list but Samsung's new 960 series M.2 ssd's gets a big thumbs up from me.
    Competition is great!

    For me, VR has been superb. Yes it's still early days and you need a lot of horsepower to run it properly, but it's a phenomenal experience overall. Elite Dangerous is a totally different game in VR, nothing else really has come close to giving me the whole OMG moment.

    I'd have to agree with some other people and say OnePlus 3. It's really a great phone. Too bad that Cyanogen Inc. are shutting down its services, but today we get a Nougat update ^_^

    Honestly, personally I'd say the nVidia 10-series cards are astounding. I love my GTX 1070, and while AMD are competitive on the lower end of the price spectrum, nVidia is killing it at the high end.
