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... Read more...

As we mentioned in our piece on CyberPowerPC yesterday, the boutique PC gaming PC business is booming. That is even more evident by our visits to Maingear and Digital Storm, both of which had a slew of new gaming systems on display that use the latest and greatest hardware from Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD. Maingear F131 with Apex Spectrum and Nintendo Switch dock Starting off with Maingear, which had its F131 on display with Apex Spectrum. Apex Spectrum uses RGB lighting integrated directly into the tubes and has its own RGB hub that interfaces with motherboard. As a result, gamers aren't locked... Read more...
AMD this week launched the first consumer graphics card for gaming to feature a GPU built on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process, and in doing so it may have achieved performance parity with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080. That parity will likely go out the window when enabling real-time ray tracing, a feature the Radeon VII is not equipped to handle. Be that as it may, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su says a card that supports ray tracing is "deep in development." Real-time ray tracing is the standout feature of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series, which is enabled through the inclusion of dedicated RT cores. There's still... Read more...
We've seen a lot of Hot Hardware this week at CES 2019, including a few desktop and notebook systems from CyberPowerPC. We have the feeling that the company is really into Thor and Asgardians in general, because the first system that we bumped up against was the Ragnarok. The Ragnarok features a massive E-ATX chassis that can be equipped with a dual-chamber power supply, each with their own separate power button. That second power supply can be used to power a separate Mini-ITX system mounted within the chassis.  Ragnarok Powering the [primary] system is a 9th generation Intel... Read more...
High resolution photos and videos aren't getting any smaller, and that means there is a need for more capacious storage solutions. Lexar has heard the call, and announced a new 1 terabyte SDXC Class 10 UHS-1 memory card for digital SLR cameras, HD and 3D video recorders, and other devices. In terms of storage capacity, things sure have come a long way in the past decade and a half, as Lexar points out. "Almost 15 years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD card. Today, we are excited to announce 1TB of storage capacity in the same convenient form factor. As consumers continue to demand greater storage... Read more...
Earlier today AMD officially announced its new Radeon VII graphics card, which is based on the 7nm Vega 20 GPU. Since we first reported on the unveiling of the Radeon VII, we've learned a few more details about this high-powered gaming card. For starters, the card features 16GB of 2.0 Gbps HMB2 memory using a 4096-bit memory bus. Although we still don't know the base clock for the GPU, it will boost to 1800MHz, which is quite an improvement over the 1546MHz boost clock of the current Radeon RX Vega 64. Single-precision performance has seen a slight uptick from 12.7 TFLOPs on the Radeon RX... Read more...
For all the gamers out there, the new 7nm Radeon VII was the primary focal point for AMD during Lisa Su's CES 2019 keynote address. However, Su did give a quick look at AMD's upcoming Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series processors, which will begin shipping in mid-2019. While leaked information had suggested that there would be SKUs with up to 16 cores and 32 threads, there was no mention of such multi-core craziness today. Instead, Su only mentioned that there would be chips available with up to 8 cores and 16 threads. In fact, on display was a prototype 8-core Ryzen 3000 system... Read more...
As expected, AMD today announced its latest high-end graphics card for gamers built using 7-nanometer process technology. However, AMD threw us for a bit of a loop with regards to the naming of the new graphics card series. While we all had assumed (based on the logo trademark) that it would be called Radeon Vega II, it is in fact called Radeon VII.  Radeon VII will be clocked at speeds up to 1.8GHz and will feature 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). The GPU features 60 compute units and AMD claims that it offers a 25 percent uplift in performance compared to the Radeon Vega 64 at... Read more...
Drones have really taken off (pun intended) in the past couple of years, though one of the challenges with jumping into the hobby is trepidation over the controls. We did not find that to be an issue with DJI's Mavic 2 Zoom, which we recently reviewed. Nevertheless, DJI announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) a new Smart Controller with a built-in display, to make flying easier. "The Smart Controller features an ultra-bright display screen and controls optimized for DJI drones, allowing pilots to fly the newest drones without using a smartphone or tablet," DJI says. It features a 5.5-inch... Read more...
We've been hearing a lot about AMD's 7nm products over the past several months, but the company has primarily focused on the enterprise market. In early November, AMD announced its 7nm Zen 2-based EPYC processors along with the 7nm Radeon Instinct MI60 for datacenter customers. Today at CES 2019, AMD President and CEO Lisa Su is expected to bring 7nm to the masses with the third-generation Ryzen 3000 family of processors based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture. The keynote starts at 12PM EST and can be viewed live below: We have seen leaks regarding these processors heat up over the... Read more...
Intel has been pushing its Optane memory solutions as speedy supplements to traditional storage, be it a mechanical hard drive or a solid state drive—on supported systems, an Optane memory stick can supercharge the primary storage scheme. That's still a use case scenario, though looking ahead, Intel announced another Optane product, the Optane Memory H10 with solid state storage. The new Optane Memory H10 is a storage drive in the M.2 form factor. It combines Intel's Optane memory with quad-level cell (QLC) 3D NAND flash memory into a single product. The concept is essentially the same as... Read more...
Rivet Networks is adding another "world's first" trophy to its showcase with the launch of the Killer E3000. The company claims that this is the first Ethernet controller capable of delivering 2.5 Gbps data speeds for PCs. The Killer E3000 is primarily aimed at enthusiasts, which is why you will see it installed in monster gaming rigs like the Alienware Area-51m that was announced this week at CES. With that being said, Rivet Networks says that the 2.5 Gbps controller will be available in desktop and laptop systems along with motherboards from top component makers. The Killer E3000 takes...
