EVGA's new laptop features 17-inch 4K display, GTX 1070

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: 1 week ago

EVGA has revealed its powerful new 17-inch gaming laptop in the SC17 1070, which is powered by Intel's previous generation Core i7-6820HK processor, but NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card.




Inside, we are also joined with 32GB of RAM, a 256GB M.2-based NVMe SSD, and a 2.5-inch larger 1TB HDD. EVGA has also included Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, 2 x USB 2.0 ports joined by a USB 3.1 Type-C port.




EVGA also says it has tweaked the hell out of the features on its SC17 1070, with the company giving the laptop a "full BIOS" implementation of overclocking abilities. If you push your EVGA SC17 1070 too far, there's even a hardware clear CMOS button that'll return you to factory defaults. EVGA also claims the SC17 1070 is bloatware-free, which is a great thing to see.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Fashion meets Tech | Posted: 1 week ago

Nier Automata has been making headlines lately, especially since it was released onto the PS4 last week - but now the PC version is out, with new details on the game released.




We now know that Platinum Games has included 21:9 monitor support, with 3440x1440 available as an option (and 2560x1080) - but there seems to be a 60FPS lock for Nier Automata on the PC.


The graphics settings include:






There's a few graphics settings to play with, but nothing much there.

Colorful's GTX 1080 Ti iGame: now with a LCD display

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 week ago

NVIDIA owns the high-end market right now with its new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which is already selling out before all of the AIB partners have even started releasing their custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, and now we have one of the most unique ones yet.




Colorful has started teasing its new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti iGame graphics card, which features an LCD display on the top which displays GPU clock speeds - and I'm sure more details like GPU/RAM temps, and hopefully more.


It looks like Colorful are requiring 8+8-pin PCIe power connectors on the GTX 1080 Ti iGame, and we can see that it has a huge - and what I'm sure will be a kick ass cooler.

AMD Radeon RX Vega detailed, the packaging looks AMAZING

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 week ago

AMD's upcoming Radeon RX Vega is my most anticipated graphics card of 2017, so the few teases we've had of the card in the last 24 hours have been beyond exciting.





The very first look at the Radeon RX Vega graphics card showed us the beautiful white backplate with red accents, and that awesome Vega branding.




There's also a GPU Tach, which will be a GPU load indicator - similar to what was on the Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. In the bottom right, there's also a new 'R' logo, which I'm digging the hell out of - and I hope it glows devilish red as well.

New 'Transformers' trailer introduces a bad-ass girl

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week ago

Michael Bay films aren't well known for their strong female representations, most frequently casting them as little more than eye candy in need of saving - but it looks like the upcoming 'Transformers: The Last Knight' will finally change that.



'The Last Knight' features Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and Peter Cullen reprising their roles alongside series newcomers fresh from their success in HBO's 'Westworld'; Anthony Hopkins and Santiago Cabrera, as well as 15 year old Isabela Moner. The film picks up directly from its predecessor, with Cade Yeager on the run and Optimus Prime having fled Earth to find out the origins of the Autobots.


'Transformers: The Last Knight' is set to hit 2D, 3D and IMAX theatres from June 23, 2017.

HP's 'Power Laptop' deal is $650, fully gaming capable

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 1 week ago

The philosphy behind HP's new Power laptops appears to be the same thinking behind "power naps" and "power walks" - you don't need to invest too much into it, and you're going to make it count. That is to say, HP looks to be positiong these as fully gaming-capable but affordable laptops. They are certainly far away from other typical gaming laptops with discrete graphics at a very enticing price poitn of only $650.




The 2017 released 15.6-inch HP Pavilion 15t Power Laptop sports some of the latest specs, like a quad-core 7th generation Kaby Lake processor and GTX 10 series graphics card (the GTX 1050 to be precise). That makes it capable of playing most modern video games and with the current $200 off price tag - a historic low price by $30 - it's a good option for those needing a portable PC gaming rig on the cheap.



A budget gaming laptop with no coupon codes or other hoops to jump through, we think both the 15-inch 15t Power Laptop along with the 17t Power Laptop are excellent budget gaming laptop picks at this point in 2017. Also noteworthy this week is HP's premium Spectre 13t ultra-thin laptop, on sale at $1,049. While decisively NOT a gaming laptop, its a premium machine rarely on sale - so we're tossing it above just as a reference deal.


No expiration dates are noted on these laptop deals, but from how HP has run their weekly promotion, we're suspecting the deal will last until later this Saturday, March 18.

'Aquaman' delayed, steals former 'Avatar 2' release date

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week ago

Following confirmation from director James Cameron that his oft-promised and oft-delayed 'Avatar' sequel will be delayed again, Warner Bros have moved in on the now abandoned Christmas 2018 release date to slot in 'Aquaman'.




Originally announced for an October 18, 2018 release date, the takeover of the former 'Avatar 2' launch date equates to a two month delay for the project. Helmed by 'Furious 7' director James Wan, 'Aquaman' will serve as the first solo-film for the DC Comics character who was first glimpsed in 'Batman v Superman' and will also feature in 'Justice League' in November this year, with Jason Momoa to reprise the character once again.

Writer insists new 'Matrix' project isn't a reboot

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week ago

Hollywood Scriptwriter Zak Penn has taken to Twitter confirming this week's Hollywood Reporter article which pegged him as the writer behind a new 'Matrix' project, but has denied that it's a reboot.




In a tweet issued last night Penn attempts to set the record straight and implies that the upcoming project will be either a prequel, or a sequel to the 1999 hit film. In a second tweet, Penn states and that if Neo was to appear, then his first choice would be Keanu Reeves.




Penn however stopped short of mentioning the Wachowskis, giving further credende to the rumour that they've been cut out of talks. By all accounts, it's still early days for whatever Warner Bros is attempting to do with the 'Matrix' franchise, but it's heartening to know that they're not planning on a full reboot.
