The whirlwind of product announcements and general craziness that accompanies the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is now in our rear-view mirror, and unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to stop by Silverstone's booth. Fortunately, Silverstone essentially brought its booth to us, toting several products to San Francisco that were previously on display at the convention, including a small form facor case that only costs $50. When's the last time you could say that about a Silverstone chassis?
Didn't have the chance to attend CES 2013? No problem! Allow our 50 images to show you the highlights from the show floor. Everything from booth babes, wacky gadgets, and the products of the show are featured in the gallery below.
If you could have seen one thing from this year's CES, what would it be? Let us know in the comments!
Today is technically the last day of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, though many vendors have already packed their wares and headed home. Those that remain are planning their exit strategy. In other words, the swarm of CES announcements are mostly in the rear view mirror at this point, though not entirely. As we've been doing all week long, we're posting another roundup of some of the highlights covered by our sister site, TechRadar, which focuses more on the consumer electronics side of the equation (think tablets and TVs rather than graphics cards and liquid cooling). The folks at TechRadar are every bit as passionate about electronics and technology as we are, so show them some love, and tell 'em Maximum PC sent you.
Zalman is planning to launch a pair of CPU coolers in the second quarter of 2013, one of them a closed-loop liquid cooler unlike any you've ever seen before, the company told us at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It's called the CI Water Cooler, which is an updated version of the company's CNPS LQ Series of self-contained liquid coolers. The other is a fanless block.
Xi3 generated a lot of buzz at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) over its Piston PC, a pint size computer that's based on the company's X7A system (both pictured in the thumbnail image), an honest-to-goodness modular computer. The form factor made a splash at last year's CES, and this time around, the question on everyone's mind is whether or not the Piston is Valve's Steam Box.
Cooler Master came prepared with plenty of products to show off.
The folks at Cooler Master made the most of their suite at the Consumer Electronics Show by cramming it full of computer cases, air and liquid coolers, power supplies, and gaming accessories, including several unreleased products. Master of cool and Maximum PC Online Editor Jimmy Thang captured nearly 20 minutes of video touring Cooler Master's hardware, along with its CM Storm division.
Nvidia's booth tour leaves us jonesing for a SHIELD handheld gaming device.
As busy as the last few days have been, one company that really stood out was Nvidia. The GPU maker came to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) prepared and ready to dazzle with its spin on mobile gaming, and folks, we're officially excited about what's in store for 2013. Join us as we tour the Nvidia booth and take a close up look at Project Shield and the GeForce Grid.
Feast your eyes on a quad-display setup running 4K Ultra HD.
Gigabyte earlier this week announced that it's dual-Thunderbolt boards are the first to implement the Intel Collage display technology. With a BIOS update and special driver, Intel Collage allows compatible boards to drive a 4K Ultra HD picture across four standard 1080p monitors. Maximum PC Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung stopped by Gigabyte's booth to see this technology first hand, and now you can too.
