All the important PC gaming news from CES 2021

Annual tech bonanza CES is over for another year, so I thought I'd round-up all the important PC gaming announcements right here in one handy location.

There are dozens of RTX 30 gaming laptops arriving over the next couple of weeks, but Gigabyte's new crop of Aorus models might be the coolest ones yet. And I mean that literally, as the new design of their Aorus 15P laptop has apparently cut temperatures on the CPU and GPU by 10 degrees, resulting in better performance under heavy load.

The year before that, it was Razer's HyperSense prototype, a complete haptic feedback system designed to put you right in the centre of your gaming experience. This year, Razer have gone one step further and created what they're hoping is going to…

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…

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…

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…
