About Us

Hardware Times was founded by two guys who really, really like PC hardware. Areej started Techquila–now one of India’s top tech platforms–while he was still in college. Arjun’s worked with leading tech sites on every continent except for South America and Africa. We’re both passionate about CPUs and GPUs. The motivation behind starting HWT came from the realization that while the interest is there, very few outlets specialize in PC hardware. No one dives past the “Look it’s a shiny card!” level. We want to change that. Hardware Times provides in-depth and exclusive coverage on all things AMD, Intel, and Nvidia. We put hardware through its paces so you can get the right gear (or at least add it to your wishlist). Unbiased, deep, detailed. Hardware Times: It Just Works! Contact: [email protected]

Areej Syed

I’m the former lead editor and founder of Techquila and keep things running here at Hardware Times. I started Techquila while in college as a side-project but it turned into something much bigger. When I started working on Hardware Times, it was one of the leading PC hardware outlets in India (though it has lost much of its appeal now). With Tq, there was a lack of focus and the target audience was variable. With Hardware Times, however, most posts will be focused on CPUs and GPUs: in-depth reviews, architectural deep-dives, previews, and then some. Find me on:

Arjun Krishna

I’ve had a passion for PC gaming since 1996 when I watched my dad score frags in Quake as a 1-year-old. I’ve gone on to become a Penguin-published author and tech journalist. When I’m not traveling the world, gathering stories for my next book, you can find me tinkering with my PC. Find me on:
