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…

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…

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…

CES 2019: AMD give us a sneak peek of their 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop CPUs

AMD's 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs for desktops have arrived. Sort of. This morning, hot off the heels of AMD's Radeon 7 announcement, AMD boss lady Dr Lisa Su gave us our first look at their new 3rd Gen of Ryzen desktop CPU coming in mid 2019. If you were thinking of splashing out on one of Intel's Core i9-9900K CPUs, you might want to hold…

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…
