CES 2019: Dell’s stuck a Core i9 desktop CPU in their new Alienware Area-51m laptop

While everyone else was busy adding Nvidia's new RTX graphics chips to their laptops at this year's CES, Dell's been busy with something else entirely for their new flagship Alienware Area-51m laptop. As well as being the first laptop to bear their new Alienware Legend design, it's also the world's first laptop to have a full-blown desktop Intel Core i9-9900K CPU crammed inside it. And…

Feature: Beam me up, Asus

CES 2019: I take it back, the Asus ROG Mothership is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

The Asus ROG Mothership is a preposterous piece of technology. I know I said earlier in the week that the Acer Predator Triton 900 was the maddest gaming laptop I've ever seen, but this desktop replacement really takes the biscuit. Not only does this huge great thing need a kickstand to prop up its 4.7kg chassis, but its keyboard can also be folded in half…

CES 2019: Doom feels like a new game with Razer’s HyperSense haptic feedback tech

When I walked into Razer's HyperSense room at their CES booth, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Before me stood a desk and chair like any ordinary PC set up (albeit one solely comprised of Razer products) and two grinning demo guides. "Do you know Doom?" one of them said. Why, yes, I do, I like it a lot and know it well, I…

Feature: But you don't want to know how much it costs...

HP’s BFGD is now called the Omen X Emperium and it’s coming in February

One of the big things I was expecting to hear more about at this year’s CES was Nvidia’s BFGDs – or Big Format Gaming Displays, to use their proper name. Or maybe that’s not the right name to use any more, as we did hear a little bit about Nvidia’s BFGDs at CES this week, in that they’ve now been pulled under the banner of…

Feature: RTX 2080-level power in a 15.6in laptop

CES 2019: MSI’s ultra thin GS65 Stealth laptop gets an RTX refresh

MSI's RTX 2080-powered GS75 Stealth laptop may have been their big announcement for this year's CES, but personally I was much more taken with the next model down, the newly RTX-refreshed GS65 Stealth. Also packed with an RTX 2080 in its energy-efficient and laptop-friendly Max-Q design, MSI's calling this 15.6in laptop the most powerful ultra slim device of its respective size category, and it's a…

CES 2019: Razer’s Raptor monitor has incredible cable management

Razer announced they were finally jumping headfirst into the world of gaming monitors at this year's CES, and man alive does this 27in display get a lot of things right. Dubbed the Razer Raptor, this 2560x1440 IPS screen is still in the early stages of development at the moment, but even now there's plenty to admire here. Indeed, the thing I'm most excited about isn't…

Feature: A stealthy gaming laptop indeed... until you open the lid, that is

CES 2019: MSI’s GS75 Stealth is a super slim 17in laptop with an RTX 2080 crammed inside

Nvidia's RTX 2060 may have dominated most of the graphics card headlines at this year's CES, but down on the show floor you simply can't move for RTX gaming laptops. Chief among them is MSI's new GS75 Stealth, which has been shoved in my face at no fewer than three separate appointments I've been to in the last two days. This is mostly because it's…

CES 2019: Vive Cosmos is a brand new VR headset from HTC

The last thing I was expecting to come out of this year's CES was another virtual reality headset, but here you go. Announced earlier today (or last night for those of you in the UK), the Vive Cosmos is the latest headset from HTC, and it's been designed with top quality comfort and ease of use in mind. Here's everything we know so far.

CES 2019: Acer’s Predator Triton 900 is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

When it comes to bonkers gaming laptops, you can always rely on Acer to go that extra mile and create something that's utterly bananas. For as long as I've been writing about tech (and gaming laptops in particular), this Taiwanese giant has been responsible for almost every surprise and baffling bit of innovation I've encountered over the years, and their latest Predator Triton 900 laptop…

CES 2019: Corsair’s tiny Capellix LEDs will appear first in their new Dominator Platinum RGB RAM

It's been five years since Corsair first unleashed a wave of rainbows across PC gaming peripherals with the introduction of their K70 RGB keyboard, but now those RGB nuts are taking their brightly coloured LEDs to the next level. Announced today at their CES 2019 press conference, Corsair's Capellix tech is a new form of LED mounting that allows for higher brightness levels, better power…

CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it’s faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs $349

Five months ago, Nvidia lifted the lid on their next generation of Turing RTX graphics cards, the GTX 1080-beating RTX 2070, the sort-of-but-not-quite-as-good-as-the-GTX-1080Ti RTX 2080 and the 4K monster that is the RTX 2080Ti. Now, the long awaited RTX 2060 is joining the ranks, and I've just had my ear talked off about it at Nvidia's CES 2019 press conference. Here's everything we know so…
