At the end of July, ASUS confirmed that they would be holding an event in which they will officially announce their next flagship smartphone in the form of the ASUS ZenFone 4. For those who are curious about the handset, wonder no more as ASUS has officially taken the wraps off the phone during Computex 2017 in Taiwan.
Another Computex comes to an end, and once again, there are a flurry of great announcements and products related to the PC industry and derivatives such as VR/AR and Gaming. We have run around to check as many things as we could (check our Computex 2017 coverage), but we didn’t stray too far from our normal regimen of laptops and key components such as CPUs and GPUS.We’ve compiled this list (no […]
Would you like to have a machine that can let you indulge in PC gaming without cluttering up your workspace? Gigabyte has just the thing for you. The company has unveiled the Brix Gaming at Computex 2017 in Taiwan. It’s a mini-PC that doesn’t look all that different from conventional mini-PCs, but it’s meant for gamers, so it has that going for it.
ASUS has come out with an impressive new monitor today that’s part of the company’s Republic of Gamers brand. That itself is enough to signify that this product is meant for those who take PC gaming seriously. The ROG Swift PG35VQ is a 35 inch curved Quantum Dot LCD panel at 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio that boasts a maximum resolution of 3,440×1,440 pixel resolution with support for High Dynamic Range […]

The company is revealing more information about a couple of those headsets at Computex 2017. It has provided more details about the mixed reality headsets that ASUS, Dell, and Lenovo have in the pipeline.
Microsoft confirmed late last year that it was bringing Windows desktop apps to mobile ARM processors. The company was making another attempt at bringing over the Windows experiences to devices powered by ARM processors, the kind of chips that you’d find in a smartphone. It confirmed back then that Windows 10 on ARM was made possible due to a partnership with Qualcomm so it’s not surprising to hear that the […]
Recently I have heard of many industry research projects which revealed that satisfactory WiFi connectivity remains of the of most common problems for the average user. It might be shocking at first, but problems such as range, line of sight and interference are very easy to find in the real world. That’s why Qualcomm has led the WiFi industry towards Mesh Networking which brings a lot of technologies from the […]
Samsung has just announced the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro, a laptop that exists in both 13.3” and 15” versions. With these models, Samsung is adopting a 360 degree multimode PC approach that is now proven, and even expected in some market. The Notebook 9 Pro also comes with Samsung’s S-Pen which is fully supported by Windows Ink.
When it comes to upgrading our gadgets, most of the time it involves us just buying a new one, unless you have a desktop computer in which you can swap out components. However this was a problem that Intel tried to solve earlier this year with the Compute Card and at Computex this year, the company has finally launched it alongside some new partners.
Let’s be honest, as much as we probably shouldn’t get food or drinks near our computers, a lot of do that. We drink in front of our computers, we eat in front of our computers, and so on. This means that if you do spill stuff, it can lead to some of your equipment getting spoilt, but Corsair is hoping that won’t happen with the K68.
Western Digital today announced the launch of two new SSD lineups. It’s not surprising even though Western Digital is best known for its hard drives. That’s because the company acquired SanDisk for $19 billion last year, and SanDisk has quite a lot of experience in making SSDs. The two lineups are branded under Western Digital and SanDisk each and are the first SSDs to be based on SanDisk’s 64 layer […]
The HTC Vive is one of the most popular full-fledged tethered virtual reality headsets out there. It has done quite well for itself ever since it was launched over a year ago. Given that it’s a tethered headset, users have to put up with a couple of cables while enjoying an experience in virtual reality. HTC has revealed at Computex 2017 that there’s going to be a wireless HTC Vive […]
If you’re going to be in the market for a portable USB monitor, you might want to check out what ASUS brought to the show floor at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan. The company is known for being adventurous with its product design and that’s precisely how it has been with the ZenScreen. It’s a slick portable monitor with a sick design, what more could you ask for?
Intel confirmed earlier this year that its 8th generation processors will be built on the 14 nanometer process yet again. It’s the fourth time in a row that the company has stuck to this process for its new lineup of chips. The company didn’t really say then what the improvements were going to be but it did claim a 15 percent performance improvement over the existing 7th Generation of Core […]
Dell owns the Alienware lineup of high-end gaming PCs but its latest desktop is not a new addition to the lineup. It has actually been branded as the Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop. Announced at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan, the Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop seeks to balance affordability and performance so that customers get the most bang for their buck.
It has long been reported that Intel is going to expand its Core processor lineup to offer Core i9 models to customers who want even more performance. It has finally done that today. Intel announced its new family of high-end Core X desktop processors today at Computex 2017. The new family brings more powerful models of the existing Core i5 and Core i7 models as well as a new Core […]
Dell unveiled its new Inspiron 27 700 all-in-one PC at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan today. It’s the first product of its kind from Dell that’s powered by AMD’s latest Ryzen processors. It also strays from the locked-down nature of conventional AiOs by offering customers the ability to upgrade the internal components as and when required.
Most think of Gaming Laptops as thick and heavy -but powerful- computers. It has been historically true that gaming-capable laptops had to sacrifice mobility and design, for performance, but this time is over thanks to the NVIDIA Max-Q design, which aims at extracting the best performance from the components, but at the most efficient point, thus leaving the notion of “absolute performance” (at any cost) behind.
ARM has arrived at Computex 2017 with a couple of new smartphone processors that it has developed with the express purpose of powering artificial intelligence-based solutions on mobile devices. That’s not surprising at all given that artificial intelligence is in vogue these days and as the industry makes a shift towards this technology, we can expect companies like ARM to follow suit as well.
[Computex 2017] There are many WiFi routers available in the market today, but it seems that ASUS has decided that they should come up with something a little more unique in terms of design and features, and have since taken the wraps off their latest WiFi router in the form of the ASUS Blue Cave.
