Although IDF13 is a decidedly Intel-centric event each year (obviously), it doesn’t stop numerous companies from camping out at nearby venues to steal away travelling tech journalists for a few moments of face time. Traditionally, AMD is one of those companies, and as you have probably guessed by now, we stopped in to see what AMD had on display.     As expected, AMD’s numerous demos all featured various APUs, which powered a number of notebooks, 2-in-1 devices, tablets, and AIO systems. Most of the rigs had been previously released, but we did catch a glimpse at an upcoming,... Read more...
Asus, Corsair, and Intel held a joint event in the Four Seasons hotel yesterday, near the Moscone Center in San Francisco where IDF13 is currently taking place.

We didn’t stick around long enough to see just... Read more...
We spent a little time checking out the Technology Showcase at IDF13 and spotted a number of cool pieces of hardware on the show floor we thought you’d like to check out. It seemed a number of popular memory manufacturers all got the same memo, as Crucial, Kingston and G.SKILL were all showing off DDR4 memory modules in their booths, among other existing memory and storage related products.          The focus in Crucial’s booth was clearly on DDR4 memory, which will eventually usher in higher clock speeds at lower voltages on the desktop. G.SKILL...
