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... Read more...
One of the coolest things that gamers saw during CES 2018 was the original Xbox controller, known as "Duke", in the Hyperkin booth. The giant controller is making a comeback and you will be able to buy one at the end of March to scratch that retro gaming itch in your geek hands. Hyperkin says that the controller will sell for $69.99, which is more expensive than most Xbox controllers. The giant Duke controller was replaced early in the Xbox lifecycle with the Xbox S controller during the first generation of the original Xbox. Word is that while the Hyperkin controller looks like the original Duke... Read more...
There's no end to the marching at CES 2018, but sore legs and stiff backs are a small price to pay to see innovation like the guys at Origin PC have on tap. We kicked off our tour of their suite with their newly redesigned MILLENIUM PC. The MILLENIUM's chassis features beautiful tempered glass panels on both sides, that swing open with ease thanks to a magnetic release - that's right, no fumbling with thumb screws here. The front panel is constructed from the same milled aluminum that comprises the rest of the chassis which is to say it feels great and durable. Origin Millenium Desktop PC Origin... Read more...
One of our favorite boutique system builders, MAINGEAR, used CES 2018 as the launching pad for its brand-new F131 Gaming Desktop with exclusive APEX Cooling. The stunning MAINGEAR F131 features an in-house designed chassis, built with premium materials, including a steel core and Japanese brushed aluminum exterior with tinted, tempered glass side panels and customizable RGB interior and logo lighting. Take a look... The MAINGEAR F131 chassis leverages the mATX form factor, which helps slim things down a bit, and results in a measurably smaller footprint than a typical, custom-built gaming rig....

EVGA typically uses CES to showcase a handful of new or upcoming products, and this year’s show was no exception. EVGA’s suite was packed with an array of graphics cards, motherboards, cases, peripherals, and new cooling products that squarely target enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers, and gamers. Among the products on display were a monstrous 2,200W power supply and hydro-copper K|NGP|N GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Above is a quick look at a few of the stand-outs featured in EVGA’s suite. The EVGA 2,200W SuperNova P2 power supply will supplant the company’s previous 1,600W model at... Read more...
Zotac is arguably the king of the hill when it comes to mini PCs and small form factor (SFF) computing, especially when you throw gaming into the mix. The company offers an extensive line of potent, pint-sized setups, some of which were on full display at the Consumer Electronics Show. But Zotac also dazzled passersby with some full-fledged custom gaming PCs and a really neat Destiny 2 case mod. It was an interesting way to show off its gear, and we make sure to take plenty of photos. We are kicking things off with the Destiny 2 case mod because, quite frankly, who doesn't appreciate a modded enclosure?... Read more...
This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas officially comes to a close today, though by this time, most of the exhibits have been torn down. That's okay, because we were in attendance earlier this week, gathering up information and snapping photos on some of the more interesting stuff on display. One of the vendors we visited was ASUS, and the company did not disappoint. From next-generation wireless routers to a Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD), ASUS brought the goods. Let's have a look. We will start things off with the company's BFGD. It is a 65-inch gaming display based on NVIDIA's... Read more...
While hopping through various suites at CES 2018, we stopped in to check on our friends at HyperX – Kingston’s high-performance products division – to see what they were showing off at the show. It turns out the company had an array of newly-announced peripherals, memory, and storage products, each with their own signature HyperX flare... Here’s a quick video-tour of a few of the stand-out products that were on display. The HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB memory kit wasn’t your typical run-of-the-mill set of brightly-lit memory modules. HyperX actually incorporated infra-red... Read more...
Razer has debuted a rather interesting notebook concept at CES 2018 -- one that harks back to similar efforts that we've seen from companies like Hewlett-Packard. Called Protect Linda, the system consists of what is essentially an ultraportable laptop "dock" that by itself is pretty useless. However, once you plug in a Razer Phone, it springs to life as a fully functioning mobile productivity machine. The laptop includes a 13.3-inch Quad HD display that operates at 120Hz, and features a built-in backlit keyboard that is powered by Razer Chroma technology. Given that the notebook is running Android... Read more...

Lenovo had a lot of new products on display at CES 2018, and we were on hand to get a hands-on look at what the company has in store for the first half of the year. Of course, the stars of the show were no doubt the newest members of the ThinkPad X1 family. These include the X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga and X1 Tablet. All of the systems have been upgraded with 8th generation Intel Core processors (up to a Core i7) and feature both USB Type-C (3.1) and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. The X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga can be had with 14-inch displays with up to 4K resolution, while the X1 Tablet's display measures 13... Read more...
Sing it with us now—'Vivoooo Las Vegas!' Wait, that doesn't sound right. However, Vivo is a name to pay attention to, assuming you are not already familiar with the Chinese brand. That's because Vivo just unveiled the world's first smartphone to sport a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display. No small feat, that is something that both Apple and Samsung having been working to achieve. In fact, it was largely assumed that Apple or Samsung would be the first to embed a fingerprint scanner into the display, rather than having it be part of a home button or on a dedicated spot on the back...
