Acer doubled down on gaming at the IFA tech show in Berlin, unveiling a barrage of new gaming gear including a Predator tablet and phone, 15- and 17-inch gaming laptops with Intel’s new Skylake processors, and powerful PCs—plus a 200Hz ultra-wide curved display.
If you build your own PCs, you’ve probably considered parts from Corsair. They sell well-liked memory, cases, power supplies, coolers, SSDs, even peripherals these days. Now they’re introducing their own do-it-yourself living room gaming PC. And gosh is it big and ugly!
There's nothing quite like the Alienware Alpha. For just $500, it's a competent Windows gaming PC. But it should have been the flagship Steam Machine. The Alpha was designed to be a Linux game console with a gamepad good enough to replace a mouse and keyboard. As easy to use as PlayStation or Xbox, but with more…
The Steam Box (or Steam Boxes, more likely) has been a long time coming, and today, the Xi3's Piston is leading the charge. While the details about Piston specifically are few and far between, we got a look at her and boy is she pretty.
Far too many gaming PCs are hulking beasts. They don't call em "towers" for nothing. Digital Storm is trying to fight that chunky, space-stealing trend with its new Bolt PC. Billed as the world's thinnest, Bolt's form is certainly slender, but it doesn't want for more under the hood.
If, for some reason, you need a laptop that can go toe-to-toe with the desktop big boys and handle games that aren't even out yet, Origin's new EON17-SLX might be the absurd fit for you.
Ah, July. School's out, the sun is up and the days are long. You know what that means? It's the perfect time to go inside and play video games.
>Digital Storm has unveiled their latest line of custom gaming PCs, which employs theSub-Zero Liquid Chilled System, allowing for Intel Core i7 processors to be overclocked at a blazing 4.6 gigahertz while remaining at an icy 0ºC.
The ingredients that went into Origin's Big O monster are decidedly prime: six-core Xeon 5680 processor, overclocking up to 4.3GHz, crazy graphics power. And the cherry on top is an integrated, liquid-cooled Xbox 360 slim in every rig. That's nasty.
There's no question that USB 3.0 is the future; it's just a question of when it'll arrive en masse. iBuyPower's decided to be in the vanguard, putting USB 3.0 in all of its desktops for no added charge. iBuyPower ships notoriously rugged rigs, so while there's still not a lot of USB 3.0 compatible devices out there…
Dell's promise: that the Alienware M11x is the "most powerful 11-inch gaming laptop" around. And they're right! It's hard to imagine packing much more oomph into such a portable frame. Then again, there's a reason Muggsey Bogues never won MVP.
In the wake of Dell's acquisition of Alienware in 2006, three key execs decided to jump ship. Their mission: to make top-tier gaming PCs the way Alienware used to. The result: a company called Origin, and the Eon18 laptop
Fujitsu is using quite a bit of bluster to drum up hype for its new gaming rig, which they claim will be the fastest on the whole planet thanks to something called "German ultra clocking." It's built in Germany, people!
You're a dork, a huge dork. And you should never be out-dorked by anyone, even your closest friends, even at a LAN party.
I loved Voodoo Omen's steely, austere looks, so the design of HP's pint-sized Firebird 803 gaming tower with VoodooDNA is kind of disappointing. Oddly, it reminds me of Linkin Park.
I just got off the phone with Rahul Sood, founder of VoodooPC, who confirmed that the rumors of Voodoo's demise were not just premature but "nonsense," but said "HP is asking us to integrate into the larger execution engine." Rahul is comfortable speaking both plainly and in business-ese—what we take this to mean is…
Packard Bell—previously referred to as Packard Hell and Packard Smell—is diving head-first into the gaming PC market with the ipower X2.0, a gaming rig that features full customization at a decent price. It's aimed squarely at offerings from Acer and Ares. The Intel-based machines give customers their choice of ATI or…
