Its time for our Wccf community survey! The hardware polls are community polls that will run on occasion and indicate how the community leaning towards major IHVs and their opinions on the PC hardware industry. The first part of our official polls, will start of course with the PC hardware side of things.

The polls will remain open till 28 February 2019, after which we will publish the results (naturally, you can get an idea of how things are going to turn out by viewing the real-time results). So without any further ado, let’s begin. The peoples choice award for add-in-board partners will be decided here as well.

*In places where you might own multiple devices – please choose your daily driver.
