The 68-page supplement is to be included every month with PC Answers, which itself has undergone a redesign and will now be devoted entirely to the software side of the PC market. The first bundled offering is out on 16 November.
PC Upgrade will include news of the latest hardware inventions, reviews of hardware products and a special section devoted to unconventional experiments such as frying an egg on the motherboard.
'At the moment there isn't a magazine that caters for a PC hardware-specific audience,' said Kelly Corten, PC Answers publisher. 'We're trying to lead the market and inspire people to do projects they might not otherwise have done.'
