The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is one of the biggest events in the Tech space each year. We typically see a dizzying array of new products launch during the week of CES; more than we are likely to see in the following few months. Not all products are block-buster standouts though, and some of these technological spectacles inevitably shine brighter than others. After sifting though all the products we saw last week, we've compiled a list of the best products that we got time with at CES 2019. And with that, we'll just dive right in... Asus ProArt PA90 Asus's ProArt PA90 is a cylindrical mini-PC that packs a surprising amount of power into it a compact enclosure. These systems... Read more...
EVGA showed off a new motherboard at CES simply called the Z390 Dark. This board was designed with an emphasis on performance and overclocking, and it was recently used by Finland Overclocker Juhani Luumi to set a new 8-core CPU world record on Cinebench. True to its name, the Z390 Dark motherboard is predominantly black, but the board is accented in gold. Thermal performance of the board was a key focus of this boards design, and EVGA placed large heatsinks over the Z390 chipset and the power regulation circuitry. There are a total of 17 digital VRM power phases on the board, all but one of which are devoted to the CPU to ensure a stable flow of power. The board has several overclocking features...

EVGA announced that it will enter the sound card market with its NU Audio card. EVGA partnered with a UK corporation known as Audio Note to engineer and produce the card, and the company claimed that the high quality of this card's components allow it to produce lifelike audio. The NU Audio sound card has a rigid metal exterior that is fairly plain in appearance. The company's name is inscribed alongside the product's name on the card's side in RGB LED lights that support 10 different display modes. At the heart of the card's design is an XMOS xCore-200 DSP that helps to efficiently process the audio and remove the strain from the host processor. A high-performance AKM AK4493 32-bit DAC that...

CES 2018 has come to a close, and so begins the arduous wait, for some of the exciting devices we saw, to come to market. The Consumer Electronic Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada is where companies come to tout new wares and announce upcoming products and technologies. While some of the cool tech that was shown leaves us with that "shut-up and take my money" feeling, it’s often not retail-ready, with months of lead-time separating consumers from getting their hands on the geek goodness we spied last week. For those who couldn’t attend the show, it can be difficult navigating the CES myriad of strategic product blitzes, press releases, and unveiling videos. So we whipped up a quick cheat-sheet...

Rumors were running rampant, and as it turns out, they were largely true. T-Mobile has made a huge move at CES 2014 this week, at a show where most of the other carriers have nearly bowed out completely. The company's new CEO has been on an #Uncarrier rampage of late, eliminating roaming fees for texting and data overseas; giving tablet users 200MB of free T-Mobile data each month; and now, paying off those much-hated ETFs. For years, mobile carriers in the U.S. have had customers by their wallets. Each discounted phone came with activation fees and a two-year agreement, which was mighty costly to escape. Those chains haven't improved much over the years, and T-Mobile is ready to seriously shake... Read more...
Ever since it debuted on Kickstarter, the makers of the Oculus Rift have promised to deliver the kind of VR experience that the late 90s and blithely promised and never created. Each developer kit or milestone has substantially improved on the underlying technology, with higher resolutions, better eye alignment, faster refresh rates, and less flickering or motion blur. The new developer kit debuting at CES 2014 is, according to multiple sources, truly amazing. New versions of the kit are using an OLED screen rather than the traditional LCD technology of previous variants. The motion blur that still popped up on the older units has been nearly eliminated, and the lag time is down to just 30ms,... Read more...

NVIDIA's Jen-Hsun Huang took the stage at CES 2014 to discuss NVIDIA's overarching gaming technology efforts, starting with a discussion of PC gaming streaming courtesy of NVIDIA's Shield. We've discussed Shield's game streaming capability before -- it's easily one of the stronger selling points for the product. According to the NVIDIA CEO, the game streaming that the company showed at CES was actually being rendered from an NVIDIA GRID server that was currently located in France. The idea here? NVIDIA can render from thousands of miles away, push those frames to your PC or mobile device, and do it in a manner that feels like a local solution. After covering a number of other NVIDIA innovations... Read more...

We haven’t heard much from Canonical about its Ubuntu for mobile since its ill-fated $32 million crowdfunding attempt, but it appears that the company has finally found a hardware partner for its mobile operating system. Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth dropped the news to CNET: "We have concluded our first set of agreements to ship Ubuntu on mobile phones. We've shifted gears from 'making a concept' to 'it's going to ship.' That has a big impact on the team," he said. Shuttleworth declined to name the manufacturer, but he did say that Canonical is actively in talks with four major brands that sell phones all over the world. If that’s indeed the case, the mobile market will get... Read more...
