Acer is determined to keep gamers entertained with a flurry of new products, and it is targeting mobile-minded gamers with the introduction of the Predator Triton 700 and Predator Helios 300 gaming notebooks, both of which can be equipped with Intel Kaby Lake processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards. The Predator Triton 700 is perhaps the star of the two, sporting a 0.74-inch thick frame that seems to take direct aim at the Razer Blade family of gaming notebooks. The Predator Triton 700 features an aluminum chassis and a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with G-SYNC. Powering the 5.7-pound... Read more...
If Intel thought that it could coast along when it comes to processor development and its release schedules, AMD’s Ryzen processors have been a rather jolting wakeup call. While not able to topple Intel’s seventh-generation Kaby Lake Core processors in every single benchmark, the Ryzen 7 family in particular provides blistering multi-core performance at extremely attractive price points. Intel has been able to charge premium prices for years because quite frankly, AMD didn’t put up much of a fight for the performance crown. The new Zen architecture changes all of that, so Intel is responding in... Read more...
If you’re a business user that needs high-end workstation-class components in a mobile form-factor, Hewlett-Packard has updated its ZBook family of laptops to deliver best-in-class performance. HP claims that its four new ZBook laptops will be able to empower everyone from filmmakers to artists to engineers. The star of the show is the ZBook Studio, which comes with a 15.6-inch DreamColor 4K UHD display (supports 100 percent of the Adobe RGB gamut), measures just 18mm thick and weighs in at 4.4 pounds. HP also provides plenty of connectivity options for professionals (take note, Apple) with three... Read more...
Many long time Windows users have not been pleased with Microsoft’s decision to block updates to Windows 7 and 8.1 for systems running current and future generations of processors. Intel’s Kaby Lake and AMD’s Ryzen chips are among the first blacklisted casualties of this policy.Microsoft deemed this necessary to improve the deployment cycle of Windows and ease the workload on hardware partners validating their products across multiple generations of Windows. Whether you buy that reasoning or not isn’t for us to decide. The fact of the matter is, Microsoft wants every one of its customers locked... Read more...
Gaming notebooks are near and dear to our hearts, so our ears definitely perked up with the announcement of two new products coming out from MSI: the GP62X and GP72X Leopard Pro Series. Both machines are powered by Intel’s latest seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors and have plenty of features targeted at on-the-go gamers. The GP62X has a 15.6-inch 1080p display, while the GP72X has a 17.3-inch 1080p display. The larger display features a 5ms response time and a 120Hz refresh rate. Both notebooks feature a Kaby Lake Core i7 processor paired with a single 16GB stick of memory (systems are upgradeable... Read more...
We here at HotHardware love a good gaming PC, and the folks over at Origin PC are doing their best to deliver a gaming notebook that packs quite a bit of punch with a respectable price tag. Meet the EON15-S — a 15.6-inch class notebook that hits all the right notes with a starting price of just $999. The EON15-S’s 15.6-inch IPS panel features a FHD (1920x1080) resolution and is backed by NVIDIA’s entry-level, Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with 4GB of memory. While the GTX 1050 isn’t capable of pushing 4K graphics at ultra settings like the monster GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti,... Read more...
The Dell Inspiron 7000 Gaming straddles the line between mainstream and gaming notebooks. It is offered in a few sizes, including a svelte 14" model, but after getting some hands-on time with the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming at CES earlier this year, we decided to check the larger laptop out. It sports a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, along with some fairly high-end internals. Before we dig into the Inspiron 15 7000’s specs, we should point out that this particular system sits at the top of the Inspiron line. The entry-level 3000 series is easy on the... Read more...
We’ve seen plenty of gaming excess over the years when it comes to desktop and notebook systems, but the Acer Predator 21 X definitely comes close to taking first prize when it comes to over-the-top gaming goodness (at least on the mobile side). First announced earlier this year at CES, the Acer is finally shipping the massive 21-inch gaming notebook. The only disappointing aspect, well other than its price, is the display resolution of the machine. Even though the gaming notebook features an expansive 21-inch display, the screen resolution is a somewhat disappointing 2560x1080 instead of 4K. However,... Read more...
Intel’s Kaby Lake family is set to expand again, with the Kaby Lake-G series making an appearance via leaked documentation. Kaby Lake-G will retain a 14nm manufacturing process and will reportedly have a package size of 58.5mm x 31mm. Right off the bat, we can see that this is a marked increase in size compared to the desktop oriented Kaby Lake-S (37.5mm2) and the mobile Kaby Lake-H (42mm x 28mm). According to leaked slides, there will reportedly be 65W and 100W SKUs, each with a quad-core configuration and a separate dedicated GPU on the package that connects via PCI x8. The TDP for both of the... Read more...
If you were a big fan of MSI's original Trident 3 gaming PC, then you might want to take a look at what the PC enthusiast company is delivering this time around with its follow-up offering: the "Frosty" Limited Edition Trident 3 Arctic. MSI released its first Trident 3 gaming PC earlier this year, and for its efforts won an IF Design Award. It's not hard to see why: the PC is downright beautiful, and despite its smaller size, it offers plenty of airflow to make sure your expensive components don't overheat. The limited edition Trident 3 Arctic sports an upgrade to both the CPU and GPU. Under the... Read more...
Whenever Intel releases a new processor architecture, it typically focuses first on consumers and then rolls out Xeon counterparts that are suitable for entry-level workstations. So it goes with Kaby Lake. Having launched its first batch of desktop Kaby Lake chips for consumers just two months ago, Intel today announced its new Xeon E3-1200 V6 family based on the same architecture. To kick things off, it's launching eight Xeon E3-1200 V6 processors ranging in base clockspeed from 3GHz to 3.9GHz, all of which are quad-core processors. Six of them support Hyper Threading. Perhaps more importantly,... Read more...
Lenovo is pitching the emerging interest in virtual reality as a reason for developers to consider its new ThinkStation P320 workstations. The world's top PC maker (in terms of market share) used Develop3D Live as the launchpad for its new systems, which featured Intel Xeon and 7th generation Core i3/i5/i7 (Kaby Lake) processor options paired with NVIDIA Quadro graphics. Buyers can opt for a full-tower enclosure supporting up to a Quadro P4000 (Pascal) graphics card, or a small form factor (SFF) setup with up to two Quadro P1000 GPUs. Either setup can be configured with an Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6... Read more...
If you’re a person that likes to satisfy your high-end gaming needs while on-the-go, Razer has updated its most potent notebook – the Blade Pro -- with the power of Intel Kaby Lake. In this case, it means that you’ll find an overclocked Core i7-7820HK quad-core processor to replace the previous Skylake-based Core i7-6700HQ. Razer has also upgraded the Blade Pro’s memory, providing 32GB of DDR4 memory running at 2667MHz versus 2133MHz. When it comes to the graphics subsystem, things haven’t changed, meaning that you’ll find a potent NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 powering a 17.3-inch 4K IGZO display equipped... Read more...
The rumor mill doesn't seem to rest for a single day lately. We learned yesterday that AMD will be releasing both 4GB and 8GB versions of its RX Vega graphics cards, and that it will also be releasing Vega for notebooks. Today we learn a little bit about Intel's next big thing: Kaby Lake X. Kaby Lake-X is going to represent the first chips available for Intel's upcoming X299 chipset for motherboard platforms, with Skylake-X chips with beefier specs to come later and ultimately supersede the current Broadwell-E chips. Thanks to SANDRA, the popular benchmarking tool from the folks at SiSoftware,... Read more...
