Two of the three monitors Samsung is bringing to CES will feature touchscreen panels.
Samsung will be attending the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas later this month, and we've been given a heads up to at least three products the company plans to bring with it. Two of them are new additions to its lineup of premium monitors, including the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor and Series 7 SC750 with 90 degrees of pivoting posture. The third monitor that will be on display is the Series 9 S27B970 for professionals.
With the amount of buzz that surrounded the Galaxy Note 2 in the lead up to IFA 2012, Samsung was assured of a lion’s share of the IFA spotlight. Now that the event is finally underway, the company is making sure it makes hay while that spotlight shines by using the event to showcase a large number of upcoming devices besides the gigantism-stricken smartphone.
The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas isn't just about media players and mobile products, there are also core PC products on display, and it doesn't get any more 'core' than motherboards. In a way, the convention is an ideal stomping ground for Gigabyte, which loves to throw around fancy terms and tout highfalutin-sounding technologies, like "3D Power."
You can argue the Earth is flat or that man never really landed on the moon, but if you really want to avoid looking foolish, then don't tell anyone Intel is deliberately stalling USB 3.0 long enough for LightPeak to drive a stake in the competing transfer interface. Actually, Intel has long held that the two aren't really competitors at all, and putting its money where its mouth is, Intel went out and received SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification for its upcoming 7 Series and C216 chipset families.
Samsung late Tuesday night unveiled its Series 7 laptop line at the IFA global consumer electronics show. These aren't gaming machines like the Samsung 7 700G that was spotted in the U.K. last week, but essentially Ultrabooks without the official designation. The Series 7 comes encased in a thin and compact aluminum chassis with plenty of power underneath the hood.
The thing about gaming laptops is that you're stuck with some of the core hardware for the long haul. Sometimes you can upgrade the CPU without too much trouble, but rarely can you swap out the GPU. That means if you're shopping a notebook for games, you should invest in one with the highest end GPU you can afford. Samsung's Series 7 700G ships with an AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 2GB of GDDR5.
