Nvidia recently gifted laptop gamers with fully functional GeForce 10 series GPUs. Our coverage of the launch and details on Nvidia’s new mobile lineup can be found here, but for those who missed the announcement the big news is that Pascal brings GPUs with near exact specifications to laptops as their desktop…
Today gaming notebook makers around the world begin shipping systems decked out with Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 GPUs, essentially the same Pascal-based graphics hardware introduced for desktop PCs earlier this year. The line, it grows thinner.
Looking to swipe some market share away from Nvidia before the arrival of its GeForce GTX 1060, AMD launched the Radeon RX 480 at the end of June. Codenamed Polaris 10, the company’s first fourth-generation GCN GPU appeared to have everyone rooting for it leading up to its release, and although we were largely…
As they do with most shiny new gaming tech, the brave folks at iFixit have taken apart Microsoft’s smaller, slightly faster Xbox One S to see how repairable it is (very) and answer questions like “Is the hard drive easier to upgrade?” (hahahaha no).
Despite reports circulating to the contrary, the Nintendo/Sega console rivalry isn’t flaring back up in miniature form. Nintendo’s upcoming mini-NES is a brand new device. AtGames’ Sega-branded mini-Mega Drive is a shoddy emulation box that’s been around for years.
Last month Microsoft announced fans would be able to apply their own style to the Xbox One’s new wireless controller, creating a custom design to have shipped to their door. Mine just arrived, and it’s even prettier in person.
If you’ve been intrigued by the idea of messing about with a $9 PC but had no idea what you’d do with it, Next Thing Co.’s PocketCHIP turns its tiny computer into a portable gaming machine, music editor and learning tool. It’s just full of ideas.
If you’re the kind of online player who instantly mutes everybody talking at the beginning of a match, then the Nyko SpeakerCom is probably not for you. Maybe go with virtual reality acupressure arm strap instead. Nyko brings weird things to E3.
Every couple of years I like to stop by The Controller Shop and design work of gamepad art. During my most recent visit I found myself overwhelmed by available options, so I turned design duties over to my son, Seamus. He’s really into red right now.
Eschewing the unpopular and largely non-existent practice of releasing new versions of products that are worse than the previous ones, the latest version of Razer’s wafer-thin gaming laptop is better than the ones that came before it. Good call.
The price of entry to PC-based virtual reality just got a lot lower. The first graphics card based on AMD’s Polaris architecture arrives at the end of June, promising VR performance of a $500 GPU for less than half the price.
The Geforce GTX 1080 tops the performance of the $1,000 Titan X card for $700. The Geforce GTX 1070 basically matches it for under $400. That’s just nuts.
After months of speculation and anticipation, Nvidia’s latest piece of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty is here. The GeForce GTX 1080 is much better than the pieces of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty that came before it.
Last year Nvidia introduced the top-of-the-line GeForce GTX Titan X, a $1,000 beast of a graphics card that blew just about everything else out of the water. Well forget that old thing. The newly-announced GTX 1080 is nearly twice as powerful for several hundred dollars less.
With its crimson accents, sharp angles and four front-facing speakers, the Acer Predator 8 looks like a tablet built for serious mobile gaming., but that’s as far as it goes.
When my review unit of Razer’s newly-launched Ripsaw game capture box arrived I eagerly unboxed it, set it atop the AverMedia Live Gamer Extreme I’d been using since last summer, and swapped the cords from the old one into the exact same ports in the new one. Hmm.
Gaming on a laptop normally requires a sacrifice of graphics power for form factor. AVADirect’s Avant P870DM-G gaming laptop houses a Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 desktop GPU, and it makes a hell of a difference.
Having reviewed the first two headsets in Kingston’s HyperX Cloud line, the feature that resonates with me most about the new Cloud Revolver is the steel suspension frame. Maybe reverberates is a better word.
Gaming headsets don’t generally do elegant. They do bright and flashy, looking either as loud as they sound or like something out of a science fiction movie. LucidSound’s LS30 wireless gaming headset does elegant with a little bit of innovative on the side.
