CES 2010 Highlight Wrap-Up In Pictures and Video

0 thumbs up

The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas gets the year going in the right direction for everyone in the high tech industry. It allows manufacturers to showcase their current products to thousands of media outlets, as well as give a sneak peak at impending launches all the while creating buzz and excitement among consumers.  And yeah, It's not bad for a few thousand press folks like us as well.

Although we already showed you several noteworthy products in our various CES Showcase, there's still a bit more to cover. Companies tend to go all-in during CES and show us more exciting hardware than we can analyze in just one or two articles. Here's a wrap up to our CES 2010 coverage that includes spotlights on Intel, Asus, Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI, Dell, OCZ, CyberPower, Toshiba, Sony and more.   

First we'll tee up a little video reel for you, then you can browse the still shots and color commentary at your leisure...



Intel's super-cool Internet content visualizer in 3D, or something like that anyway. 


Intel's Booth featuring Light Peak and petite Clarkdale Core i5 goodness

Back in September, we wondered out loud if Intel would productize expansion boards that featured their Light Peak technology or if we would have to wait a bit longer to actually see it in the flesh. We apparently found our answer during our meeting with Intel. They showed us a prototype PCIe board that featured USB-like ports  (mechanically only and not actually wired over USB of course) on each side. For the uninformed, Light Peak is an optical, high speed interconnect technology announced at IDF '09 and provides data rates of 10 Gigabits and beyond. It allows the use of multiple protocols on a single fiber-optic cable, provides higher bandwidth than current technologies, and integrates smaller connectors with longer cable lengths possible versus standard copper.  Intel claims, though it is very early, that it could very well replace every peripheral connection port on the PC, consolidating all IO communications over a single cable.

CES 2010 was the reason I couldn't get a good deal at the Wynn Las Vegas during the first week of January...

where did you guys end up staying?

I'm most looking forward to the Dell's Multi-touch Studio 17 Notebook.

BTW, did I read that correctly the new Qosmio features "either a Core i5 or Core i7 under the hood and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M for your gaming pleasure."

The Dell has that GPU to, looks like that will be common fare this year if two of the big boys are ruuning that setup, The reason  I say this is because the components for a laptop setup are quite minimized compared. The whole time I was watching that video I was waiting for Trent Reznor to start singing.

And I love this NiN song, Gibbs, though it's so very wrong... heh. We definitely had to go with the instrumental version!

Yeah it is strong , but I know it by heart to so everytime it reached the crescendo where he starts singing I was expecting it. I would imagine you would also get sued if you did not use the instrumental.

yep, you read that right Gibbs!

Thanks, I feel like I missed out on a ton these past couple of weeks!

Here's more info on the GTS 360M from Nvidia's page for those interested:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_gts_360m_us.html


Oh wait, found this in an article from last week:

"None of the seven new GeForce 300M GPUs are based on the upcoming Fermi architecture, it’s kinda embarrassing for NVIDIA that these chips are still limited to DirectX 10 while ATI will soon unveil the first notebook GPUs with DirectX 11 support."

And then this:

"There wasn't any fanfare accompanying the release of Nvidia's first GeForce 300M series graphics processors this week, and there's good reason for that. The flagship GPU in the new 300M series -- the GTS 360M -- sports the same number of cores (96), same bus width (128-bit) and same memory clock (2GHz) as the GTS 260M, although the 360M is capable of processing slightly more gigaflops (413 versus 396)."

It seems Nvidia just rebranded the 260M... What's the point of getting a laptop with the 300M series, when ATI mobile 5000 supports DirectX 11? The ATI Mobile 5650 offers 572 Gflops of performance vs the GTS 360M's 413.

they rebrand all the time

You're right, but with the release of ATI's own mobile cards, I don't know if this will pan out.

That said, Qosmio and Dell have signed up to receive the 360M so I guess it has worked in Nvidia's favor to some extent.

Oh yeah I am not really cutting down nvidia. Usually one of the rebrands is done because they scaled down the NM or memory, changed power thresholds and or multiple things. They just still run the same core. Either way the performance line generally goes up sometimes quite a bit.
