We had the opportunity to attend PAX East 2014 at Boston this year and the show was huge for PC gaming. As a matter of fact, besides at the Xbox booth, we didn’t see a single console in sight. In addition to many upcoming AAA PC titles like Evolve and Wolfenstein: The New Order being showcased, a whole slue of PC vendors like Intel, Nvidia, Corsair, and Cooler Master were there.
Even as rivals opt for higher res displays, Gigabyte sticks to full HD
When Nvidia launched its latest GeForce GTX 800M Series GPUs last month, Gigabyte wasted little time in announcing an entire lineup of gaming notebooks built around the new mobile graphics cards. Maximum PC’s Jimmy Thang found Gigabyte parading some of the new notebooks at PAX East.
HyperX recently launched a new line of memory sticks dubbed Fury for entry-level gamers and enthusiasts. To celebrate the launch of its new memory line, which offers automatic overclocking, HyperX decided to try and furiously overclock some memory at the PAX East conference for the amusement of visitors to its booth. One such witness to HyperX’s memory overclocking antics happened to be Maximum PC’s very own Jimmy Thang.
Back in December, a little over a year after Linux creator Linus Torvalds famously lamented the lack of laptops with “reasonable resolution” displays, Taiwanese PC vendor MSI launched the industry’s first 3K gaming laptops in the form of the GT60 2OD-261US and 2OKWS-278US. Now, the company is all set to add another 3K notebook to its lineup. Maximum PC’s Jimmy Thang got up close and personal with the upcoming GS60 Ghost Pro gaming notebook at PAX East.
