AOC have a new 49in monitor to rival Samsung’s CRG9

At the end of last year, you may have noticed I took quite a shine to the enormous Samsung CRG9 monitor. With its 49in screen and 5120x1440 resolution, it was an absolutely fantastic way to play Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as many of the other best ultrawide PC games available right now. Well, now AOC have one to rival it. Just like the…

Actually, this is our first proper glimpse at Intel’s Xe GPU, but details are still thin on the ground

Earlier this week, we got our first glimpse of Intel's Xe GPU in action when they showed a live demo of it running Destiny 2 on one of their new Tiger Lake laptops during their CES press conference. At the time, the GPU code-named DG1 was buried deep inside the laptop, but now Intel have released some official images of the desktop version of their…

I’m worried that MSI’s new HMI gaming monitor is going to kill me in my sleep

There have been plenty of new monitor announcements over the course of this week's CES tech jamboree, but none have been more terrifying than MSI's Optix MEG381CQR. This curved 38in ultrawide display is one of several new gaming screens coming from MSI this year, but it will be the first to incorporate Human Machine Interface elements, or HMI for short. It's not entirely clear what…

Crucial’s new Ballistix MAX RAM lets you 3D print your own lightbar

While most of the CES excitement has centred around new graphics cards like AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT, CPUs and strange new concept devices like Alienware's Switch-like UFO PC this year, Crucial have something a little different on their CES booth this year: a new line of next-generation high-performance RAM that lets you 3D print your own personalised lightbar.

Move over Thronos, there’s a new Razer mega chair in town

Last year, I was both awed and terrified by the massive Acer Thronos gaming chair. It was a huge, mechanical monstrosity with three screens attached to an LED-encrusted metal arm that swooped down over your head, and you knew the moment you'd locked its fold-out keyboard tray into place that it was going to eat you alive and never let you leave. Thankfully, Razer's new…

Corsair’s new K95 XT keyboard has built-in Elgato Stream Deck controls

Ever since the streaming bods over at Elgato were subsumed into Corsair's giant PC peripherals basket back in 2018, I've been waiting for the inevitable mash-up moment where both companies collide in a single bit of hardware. Finally, that time has arrived, as Corsair unveiled a new version of their top-end K95 Platinum keyboard at CES earlier this week that has built-in support for Elgato's…

LG enters Nvidia BFGD arena with 12 OLED G-Sync Compatible TVs

It's all gone a bit quiet on the Nvidia BFGD (or Big Format Gaming Display) front recently, but this year's CES tech celebration has finally yielded some very promising news. LG are entering the fray this year with 12 G-Sync Compatible OLED TVs. That's right. Proper OLED TVs, not extortionate over-priced G-Sync Compatible monitors monitors.

Six months after launch, ray tracing finally comes to Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood was one of Nvidia's big ray tracing games of last year, and it was even one of the free games you could get if you bought a new RTX graphics card over the summer. However, whereas its other freebie stablemate Control teleported its ray tracing support in at launch, Wolfenstein: Youngblood positively dragged its cybernetic heels over it, with months and months passing…

Alienware’s Concept UFO PC does an incredible Nintendo Switch impression

I'm calling it now. Alienware's Concept UFO PC is hands down the most exciting thing to come out of this year's CES tech fest. It's effectively a Nintendo Switch, but it plays PC games, which, let's face it, is all any of us have ever wanted ever since the Switch first came into existence. Alienware and Dell Gaming's vice president Vivien Lien even went full…

AMD FreeSync 2 HDR is dead, long live FreeSync Premium and Premium Pro

On top of announcing their new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card and a bunch of new 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 laptop processors yesterday, AMD also announced some changes to their various FreeSync standards at this year's CES. Until now, we had regular FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR, the latter offering exactly the same variable refresh rate tech for super smooth, tear-free gaming as regular…

This is our first glimpse of Intel’s Xe GPU

2020 is the year Intel finally make their return to the discrete graphics card arena, and last night they gave us our first look at their upcoming Xe GPU during their CES 2020 press conference. Admittedly, Intel only showed one of their mobile Xe GPUs in action rather than a full desktop version, but when that demo involved running Destiny 2 on one of their…

AMD want their Ryzen 4000 CPUs to be “the best laptop processors ever built”

AMD kicked off their CES 2020 press conference with some big promises last night. Not only are they calling their upcoming Radeon RX 5600 XT GPU the "ultimate 1080p graphics card", but they're also hoping their new set of 3rd Gen Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs will be "the best laptop processors ever built". Those are fighting words considering AMD have always been a bit of…

AMD’s Radeon RX 5600 XT takes aim at Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Ti

AMD announced the latest graphics cards in their new Big Navi family last night, the RX 5600 and RX 5600 XT. Much like their RX 5500 and RX 5500 XT cousins, the regular RX 5600 will only be available in pre-configured systems you buy from PC builders. The RX 5600 XT, on the other hand, is going to be the one you buy separately to…

Feature: GIFs are the new laptop stickers

Asus’ Zephyrus G14 laptop is a compact powerhouse with a strange animated LED lid

As well as a plentiful supply of new gaming monitors to coo over this week, this year's CES tech bonanza has also brought us dozens of new gaming laptops, including the world's most powerful 14in laptop, the Asus Zephyrus G14. But it's not so much the G14's souped up innards that have me all aflutter (although its 4th Gen AMD Ryzen CPU and RTX 2060…

Acer’s massive 55in OLED monitor is coming for your TV

I really wasn't kidding when I said the hot topic of this year's CES was mad gaming monitors, as Acer have just their giant Predator CG552K screen. Measuring 55in across its diagonal, this 4K, 120Hz OLED screen could be just the thing to replace your ageing TV with if you're after some lovely big screen gaming down in your living room.

Asus have made the world’s first 360Hz gaming monitor

It's CES over in Las Vegas right now (that's the Consumer Electronics Show to give it its full and proper name), where hardware manufacturers from around the world offer up their latest gadgets and gizmos to give us a glimpse of all the cool things they've got planned for 2020. This year, the hot topic seems to be mad gaming monitors, and Asus have just…
