Asus Doubles Down on Gaming at CES 2020

I assume that Asus waited a long time before dropping “the bomb” at CES, as it jsut announced the newest ultra-slim Zephyrus G14 and G15 laptop to go with the ROG Strix GA15/GT15 and the ROG Strix Ga35/GT35 desktops. Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Gaming Laptop Let’s start with the new gaming laptops, which you can guess from the name, is ultra-slim. That means less weight to carry around - it weights just 1.6kg or 3.52 pounds. All of this in a small chassis of 17.9mm or 0.70 inches. At the moment, they’re only available with the AMD Ryzen 4800U 8-core/16 thread processors.  Now, don’t get fooled by the small design, this bad boy can run almost any game at 60 fps with no problems at all. And, you don't need to buy an external GPU like that new Lenovo Y740S. You can also find on this laptop the popular AniMe Matrix, as Asus team named, aaprogrammable Led dot which is in the lid....

Alienware Concept UFO – A Nintendo Switch Ripoff or Something More?

Finally, a UFO that we’ll get to see. First time I looked at its design, I strongly believed that is some Nintendo Switch rip off, and it really does look like it. But, the Concept UFO is being promoted as a prototype for a new generation of portable PC. Now, to make this more simple, it works like a PC, and it's powered by Windows 10, but it looks very similar to a Nintendo Switch. Put on display at the CES, we can only envy the ones who will get the chance to try it first. This prototype spreads hope that we will get rid of the huge PC pack and endulge in a miniature version with the same, maybe even one with higher power and cstorage apacity. Dell isn’t the first company to come out with this idea, just look at Razer Edge or Nvidia Shield, but at the moment this seems to be the most promising one.

Intel’s Horseshoe Bend prototype looks amazing

Horseshoe Bend could be a game changer in the portable computing industry. First of all, just to be clear, it’s still a prototype. Now, you may say that there are already similar devices, such as the Lenovo X1 Fold, but this one is special because of its size. It features a 17.3-inches OLED foldable screen. Two images of the Intel Horseshoe Bend Folded, it looks just like a regular laptop, well at least in size. Fold it and put in on a desk, scroll down with no problem, care to watch a movie? Unfold it and enjoy that large screen. For those who want to know about gaming applications, or maybe the virtual keyboard is not your style, you can always add an external keyboard(wireless or the classic). This folding competition is between Intel’s Horseshoe Bend and Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold with an only 13-inch screen. Intel Tiger Lake Computer Processor Prototypes Behind Horseshoe Bend, we have the...

It has been coined as the world's thinnest gaming PC, and technically it is, but it's only a gaming PC when you hook up an external GPU via the aformentioned Thunderbolt 3 connection. For a short business, movie trips, or just a coffee, you can take the laptop with your want to enjoy your time. When you want to play, however, just plug in the external GPU and enjoy high-quality gameplay. This device is connected by a wire, so you don’t need a diploma in IT to use it. The problem with this device is...
