Senior Editor Gordon Ung got a change to take a look at some of the newest offerings from MSI, focusing here on two brand new mini ITX boards. These boards mark the first time MSI has ever made an ITX board for consumers. The first board may seem familiar to small form factor enthusiasts, though the second board has a surprise in store (hint: XXXX Bridge). Hit the video below to check them both out!
Wrapping things up from the CES show room, Senior Editor Gordon Ung takes a brief look at Kaos's new Homefront FPS in 3D! Though Kaos will be releasing console versions of the game, the PC version promises to be a different take on the storyline. Check out the video below for your first look at Homefront, straight out of CES 2011.
Our last meeting on Friday was a cool one. MainGear showed us a handful of new Sandy Bridge desktops, including a refresh of the company's Kick-Ass award-winning Shift, which receives a snazzy new carbon fiber finish.
The star of the show, however, was this cool-looking new Home Theater PC, which prominently features a big display on the front face of the rig. Ostentatious? Yes. But it's striking. Check it out.
We learned yesterday at CES that Corsair and CoolIT had teamed up on their latest CPU liquid coolers, but Asetek, Corsair's former BFF, isn't left out in the cold. They're partnering with Antec on Antec's new all-in-one liquid cooler, based on a new and improved Asetek design. (Antec says it's version 3; Corsair's H50 and H70 used version two). The Kuhler CPU cooler (hah) comes in two flavors: the H20 620, with one 14cm fan and radiator, and the 920, which comes with a thicker radiator and two fans. I'm looking forward to pitting it against Corsair's H60.
Antec also showed off a new and very quiet 1200W PSU. Check out their show-floor demo in the video below.
Hit the jump for Corsair's new 600T and a brand new, ultra quiet 1200W PSU!
Senior Associate Editor Nathan Edwards got the opportunity to check our some new awesome software from Corsair at CES. Dubbed 'Link', this software allows you to monitor, maintain, and alter your fans, graphics, and virtually any other piece of hardware running inside your case. It even allows you to set and swap between different setups depending on the task at hand. Click below for a detailed run-through!
BenQ's MX812XP is a hell of a site to behold. It works by using two projectors blended onto a massive desktop to project 3D gaming right at you. It does this by using scalable display software to pull up a digital grid. It then uses webcams to photograph the grid, then blends the two together with zero visible distortion. As if all that doesn't sound cool enough, the 3500 lumen projectors can project up to an infinite size. Check it out below!
Fresh from the CES show floor Senior Associate Editor Nathan Edwards takes a quick look at Synology's DiskStation Manager 3.0, which is compatible with all OS's (and free to upgrade!) and comes loaded with a ton of features, including a built in music player, back up utility, and a back up and file sharing utility, all of which function from within a browser. Impressive!
Acer's dual screen Iconia has been on our radar for a while now, but actually seeing one at CES was an utter delight. The dual LCD notebook features two fully functional touch screens, and will run Windows 7 with a core i5 processor. It also comes loaded with snazzy custom Acer gesture software, which is demonstrated to full effect in the video below. Enjoy!
