Everyone in their grandma is announcing new products based around Intel Kaby Lake and NVIDIA Pascal at CES 2017, and Gigabyte is no different. The company has two new dedicated gaming notebooks that feature the CPU/GPU pairings: the P56 and the Sabre 15. The P56 manages to cram in a Core i7-7700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and into a 15.6-inch frame. The notebook comes standard with a 1080p display, but if you pony up some additional dollars, you can opt for a 4K (3840x2160) display. The P56 features an island-style backlit RGB keyboard with individually-lit keys (giving users a... Read more...

We covered a lot of miles at CES 2016 this year, our fitness trackers often chirping "success" rather early in the day, but we saw a lot of people and a lot of tech gear in our travels. Some of it was hot - damn hot - some of it, not so much. There were some recurring themes this year, as with every year at CES it seems. The hot topics and trends this year were autonomous cars, virtual reality, more thin and light computing and of course more powerful gaming gear. Every Tech Web publication has its own short list of the best products showcased at CES 2016. We're going to run down our top 10 products... Read more...
We saw plenty of interesting tech last week at CES, so we’d be remiss if we left out some of the cool wares that we saw from our friends at CyberPowerPC. For those not in the know, Syber Gaming is a spinoff of CyberPower and it is looking to make its mark on the gaming PC market. If you’ve seen Paul’s review of the small form factor (SFF) Syber Vapor, you already know part of the story for the new Syber C Series. The C Series uses a similar internal chassis design as the Vapor, but features improved ventilation along with better customization and upgrade options. Syber C Series When it comes to...

EVGA set up shop in a swank suite at the Bellagio Hotel a short distance away from the craziness of the Las Vegas Convention Center, to display its latest products to CES attendees. As you’d expect, EVGA had a wide array of motherboards and NVIDIA GPU-based graphics cards on hand, including a custom GeForce GTX 980 Ti geared for the upcoming wave of VR gear, but the company also revealed some upcoming products that have nothing to do with graphics.     Some of EVGA’s high-end, custom GeForce GTX cards were displayed in a glass case, with a trio of EVGA’s custom SLI bridges...

Solid State Drive technology continues to make big strides in performance, reliability and cost. And of course, at CES 2016 there were a number of storage manufacturers on hand showing off their latest grear, though none made quite the splash that Toshiba's OCZ Technology group made with the annoucement of their new RevoDrive 400 NVMe PCI Express SSD. With this new drive, OCZ is tapping on Toshiba's NVMe controller technology to deliver serious bandwidth in this consumer-targeted M.2 gumstick style drive that also comes with a X4 PCI Express card adapater. OCZ didn't offer much detail on the controller... Read more...
We had a chance to visit Gigabyte this week at CES, and as always, the company had plenty to showcase for our eager eyes. On tap were new Skylake BRIX mini-PCs, new WINDFORCE graphics cards, a new gaming laptop and a familiar 34-inch curved AIO machine. First up, however, is Gigabyte’s refreshed BRIX mini-PCs which feature a high-quality, brushed aluminum finish to class things up a bit. Customers can choose from three Skylake processor, all with a TDP of 15W and all with Intel HD Graphics 520 onboard: the Core i3-6100U, Core i5-6200U or Core i7-6500U. Gigabyte's Skylake BRIX Mini-PC Two... Read more...
After making waves at IDF 2015 in August, Project Tango is closer to appearing on consumer phones. In fact, Google and Lenovo announced at CES 2016 that they already have a prototype phone that features the augmented reality kit and plan to launch it this year. Google released renderings of a Lenovo phone with Project Tango, but cautioned that the images are not images of the “official” Lenovo phone. Still, they provide an interesting look at how the necessary hardware (a motion-tracking camera and depth-sensing technology) will affect the appearance of a consumer phone. “By adding...

For the most part, AMD used the Consumer Electronics Show to talk about the initiatives and upcoming products we’ve already discussed over the last few weeks, like FreeSync over HDMI and next-gen display technologies like HDR, GPUOpen, and the Polaris GPU architecture. In fact, the demo we wrote about in our Polaris piece, in which a system featuring a Polaris-based GPU pulls much less power from the wall than a GTX 950-based system, was on display for all to see. AMD, however, also revealed some new products and technologies at CES, which include a quieter cooler, an APU, and the socket... Read more...
If you’re a fan of Intel’s NUC series of mini PCs, the chip giant is back at it again with a refresh built on its Skylake processor platform. The big news of course comes under the hood in the form of two ultrabook-class processors: the dual-core U-Series Core i3-6100U and Core i5-6260U. The Core i3-6100U comes with Intel’s HD 520 graphics, while the Core i5-6260U brings a bit more to the table with Iris Graphics 540 (complete with 4K support). The NUC refresh includes support for DDR4 memory (up from DDR3) via two SO-DIMM slots. The Skylake architecture also means that you’ll... Read more...
Samsung’s new 2-in-1 tablet made an appearance at CES 2016 this week. The 6.3mm-thin Galaxy TabPro S runs Windows 10 and has an estimated battery life of 10.5 hours. The Hot Hardware team had a chance to check out the tablet in Las Vegas. Featuring a dual-core, Intel Core M processor at 2.2GHz, the Galaxy TabPro S looks like it will have the chops for business use. Memory will be 4GB no matter which model you pick up, but you’ll have two storage options: a 128GB SSD or a 256GB SSD. “We’re thrilled to be working with Microsoft Corp. to deliver a 2-in-1 tablet that truly allows...

Oculus starting accepting pre-orders for its Rift VR headset yesterday, though at a price many weren't expecting. At a dollar shy of $600, sticker shock reverberated through the Internet community, and not without reason -- Oculus founder Palmer Luckey commented just a few months ago that Oculus Rift would be in the "ballpark" of $350, setting up what would turn out to be an unreasonable expectation. So what happened? In a Reddit AMA, Luckey apologized for the disparity and explained that his "ballpark" comment was made in haste. At the time he, he was trying to dispel the notion that Oculus Rift... Read more...
