If you’re serious about PC gaming, you can always use a bigger, wider display as far as I’m concerned. It just makes things more immersive than playing on a small screen, when the image takes up a big chunk of your field of vision.
Normally, when I have to work on a laptop, I am much slower than when I’m at home because I use a big old 30-inch screen that lets me get like four windows open at once without having to switch back and forth.
We already saw a very cheap way to emulate the NVIDIA Shield’s game streaming function using a smartphone and VNC. But if you want an even cheaper way – assuming you don’t already have a smartphone – check out Limelight Pi, an open source program that lets you stream Steam games to a Raspberry Pi.
One of the many gadgets unveiled before the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – really guys, if you keep preempting the show CES 2015 might as well be held this December – the 27″ Philips 272G5DYEB monitor is one of the first monitors to have NVIDIA G-Sync built-in.
The NVIDIA Project Shield gaming system was one of the more interesting devices to surface at CES 2013. At the time, there wasn’t word on pricing or a release date. Today, NVIDIA started taking pre-orders for the hybrid handheld/TV gaming system, and revealed both a release date and a retail price.
Taking aim at the multi-billion dollar gaming industry, NVIDIA today revealed its own mobile gaming console, codenamed “Project Shield,” which is designed to combine the best of Android handheld devices with the best of console gaming.
NVIDIA just announced the launch of these new wired 3D Vision glasses, which are supposed to be more cost effective than their 3D Vision active shutter glasses. These 3D glasses connect to your PC via USB, getting power and data over the cable rather than infrared signals.
The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone was unveiled a while back, and the thing looks really nice and has solid specifications. Apparently, some of the smartphones will be packing NVIDIA Tegra 2 under the hood and others won’t.
Yes, I’ll admit it, this computer is pretty small, but it packs a lot of punch. Unless you’ve got a Tegra 2-powered system, it’s probably more powerful than your precious netbook thanks to a dual core processor and a few other hardware perks.
I always get a kick out of companies that realize they can’t defend themselves in court and end up settling without admitting guilt. If they weren’t guilty, I hardly think most companies would offer to pay out.
I like the idea of 3D in my home and on my computer, but I refuse to pay a premium for the feature, and then have to wear those stupid glasses. We all know that the tech needed for 3D with no glasses is in development, and for the most part the manufacturers are using the early systems’ need for active glasses as a way to make more money.
The guys at Futuremark just took wraps off the latest version of their 3DMark benchmarking suite, and it’s guaranteed to put your graphic chipset through the most aggressive set of tests it’s ever been tasked with.
As news of the 3D version of the Batman: Arkham Asylum hit, Kotakuite deanbmmv pointed out that people who bought the PC version of the game don’t need to re-buy it because there’s already a way to play it – and other PC games – in 3D for free… as long as you have an NVIDIA graphics card.
