Acer's Aspire "Predator" gaming PC line has only been around a couple of years now, but it has already gained a huge following in the sector and is widely viewed as a legitimate rival to Alienware and other high-end gaming PC companies. Now, the company is ready to unveil their newest beast, which boasts a chassis... Read more...
We don't often get too geeked over movie tie-ins, but we have to hand it to Razer for not only building a product line around the upcoming Tron remake based on the one of the most popular sci-fi flicks of all time, but for doing a killer job with it. Even non-Tron fans are likely to do a double take at these new peripherals, all three of which... Read more...
Before long, you won't actually need to interact with human beings for anything. You can order groceries online, you can pay your phone bill on your phone, and now you can even order movie tickets through your Xbox 360. That's right, through your Xbox 360. It's a little strange to think about, and it may shock you at first, but it's not that... Read more...
Love seeing records broken? What about records that you never thought could ever be broken? Vogel's, which is described as the leading European market leader in Audio/Video & TV mounting solutions, has just announced that on July 16th, Gerdi Vogels, CEO of Vogel’s, will give the starting shot for a new Guinness World Record attempt...

About four months ago, we covered the latest round of shin-kicking between ATI and NVIDIA, with ATI claiming that NVIDIA purposefully crippled CPU performance when running PhysX code and coerced developers to make use of it. NVIDIA denied all such claims, particularly those that implied it used its "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" program... Read more...

When you think about portable gaming handhelds, you probably think first of Nintendo and Sony. Which is perfectly logical given just how important the Game Boy line was in the history of gaming and just how popular the PSP line is today. But the handheld gaming world is much, much bigger than just two giant companies. All sorts of smaller... Read more...
Today, NVIDIA is unleashing another Fermi-architecture based graphics card, but unlike its predecessors, this one isn't based on the GF100 GPU. The GeForce GTX 460 we'll be showing you today is actually based on a new-class of Fermi-based GPU, the GF104. The GF104 borrows heavily from the GF100 design, but it features fewer CUDA cores and...

The road leading up to the release of their Fermi architecture-based GF100 GPU, which powers the first wave of GeForce GTX 400 series cards, was a rocky one for NVIDIA. Hampered by a number of delays, and design and manufacturing issues, the GF100 hit the scene much later than NVIDIA would have liked. Since the initial arrival of the flagship... Read more...
What if your game console had a 3G wireless connection? What if your portable gaming handheld had one? It's a reasonable question to ask, and you have to assume that executives at Nintendo, Sony and the rest of the crowd are asking that same question. There's a clear and present demand for mobile data; Apple's iPad comes in a 3G version, and... Read more...
Back in April, we first gave you a glimpse of the extreme Asus ARES dual-Radeon HD 5870 GPU powered graphics card, complete with some preliminary benchmarks. At the time, the specifications weren't quite finalized and there was little word about availability in the U.S., but the card's impressive configuration immediately piqued our interest....

Dell recently sent us one of their new Studio XPS 7100 desktops built around AMD's recently launched Phenom II X6 1055T processor. AMD's hexa-core chips don't pack the same punch as Intel's six-core architecture, but the upshot is you'll save a king's bounty by riding into the sunset with AMD, and in this case, with Dell as well. The configuration... Read more...
Acer's notebook collection has been growing furiously over the past few months, and with demands shifting from desktops to more mobile form factors, that's really no surprise. But the desktop isn't dead yet, particularly in the gaming sector. For hardcore gamers, there's really no substitute for a desktop GPU, desktop... Read more...
It's that time again, HotHardware fans! It's time for us to give away some HOT new gaming gear! This time around, we have have teamed with the folks at ASUS and AMD to give away not one, but two awesome prizes, with some extra weekly prizes thrown in for good measure. The full scoop on how to enter and what you... Read more...
Sony has bought in, and even Nintendo has bought in. There's 3D titles coming for the PS3, and there's a 3DS handheld coming soon; Nintendo even confessed to thinking about the possibilities of a future 3D home game console. So that's two of the main three game makers who are seemingly on board with 3D, surely Microsoft will follow suit soon,... Read more...
Is it really any surprise? It shouldn't be. 3D is going mainstream, and that means entering product segments that it hasn't entered before. Like gaming. Sony was the first major gaming company to confess that they would be producing 3D titles and supporting 3D playback via the PlayStation 3, and now Nintendo seems to be following suit. The...

Man, have we been waiting forever on this, or what? id Software delivered the first in-game screenshots of its next generation first-person shooter, Rage, in August of 2008. We understand that game development takes a serious amount of time, but we're nearly two years into the process (from the public side, anyway) and we're still waiting.... Read more...
Menacing? Oh yes. Mean? Definitely. Powerful? You bet. Digital Storm is an up and coming pre-fab PC builder, and in order to go toe-to-toe with the big guys at Dell, Alienware and HP, they've got to offer cutting edge hardware at a great price. And offering that in a PC enclosure that looks like this doesn't hurt... Read more...
One thing that has separated Xbox 360 and PS3/Wii when it comes to online gaming is price. Microsoft has always charged users for Xbox LIVE Gold, a yearly service to get onto their servers and battle the world, download media, network, etc. Sony and Nintendo have made their services available for free, presumably bundled into the cost of the...

So, let's see. Nintendo revealed a 3D version of their DS gaming handheld (the 3DS), and Microsoft revealed both the Kinect motion sensing system and a brand new Xbox 360 design this week at E3. And all Sony debuted was a new sound system? Hardly. The PlayStation Move was also out in full effect, and while that name has been around for a few... Read more...
In the gaming world, most consumers remain fixated on one single thing: graphics. Ever since the Wii was introduced, another point has been focused on: control. But one area that gets very little attention, even today, is audio. Sony has always seemed to care more about audio than the other guys when it comes to gaming, and at E3 this week... Read more...
