VisionTek Epic Cryosphere Gaming Rig Giveaway
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 4:54P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VisionTek Products LLC, a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PC and Apple Macintosh computers, announced today the Glacially Epic Cryosphere Gaming Rig Sweepstakes. The grand prize to be awarded is the VisionTek Custom Shop built Cryosphere gaming rig, featuring nearly $3,000 of high-performance computer components from AMD, ASUS, Fractal Design, FUNC, and VisionTek.

 Showcased at CES to Rave Reviews

 To demonstrate the CryoVenom R9 290 as the industry’s first and fastest custom-built liquid cooled AMD Radeon™ R9 290 graphics card on the market at the recent CES show, the VisionTek Custom Shop team built a high performance gaming rig and dubbed it Cryosphere. Gaming and computer performance experts who viewed the system during CryoVenom’s launch event were impressed. “The Cryosphere liquid cooled gaming rig is loaded with amazing hardware that will devour your favorite games titles,” said Nathan Kirsch, Editor-in-Chief, LegitReviews. Steve Burke, Editor-in-Chief, Gamers Nexus opined, “PC gaming is about style as much as it is about performance -- the Cryosphere achieves both.”

 Built with the Best Components                                                                                         

 To complement the overclocked performance of its CryoVenom graphics card, VisionTek selected the best PC gaming hardware components available with the ultimate goal of awarding an extreme performance system to one lucky gaming enthusiast. The one-of-a-kind Cryosphere consists of:

 ASUS® Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

CryoVenom delivers maximum cooling performance for the GPU, RAM, and Voltage Regulation Module (VRM) without noisy fans or overheat downclock.

NVIDIA CES 2014: Tegra K1 Debutes With 192 GPU Cores
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 5:22P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's Jen-Hsun Huang took the stage at CES 2014 and after covering a number of other NVIDIA innovations over the past year, NVIDIA unveiled its latest mobile chip. Not Tegra 5 -- NVIDIA appears to be dropping the five altogether -- but Tegra K1 (codenamed Logan). According to Jen-Hsun, one of the advantages of the Tegra K1 chip is that it offers the same programming capabilities as the conventional NVIDIA GK104 GPU. The Unreal 4 engine will be coming to mobile as a result, which makes sense, given the new core's capability. What's more impressive, however, is that the new mobile chip will comprise 192 Kepler cores, which is over a 2.5X increase from the current generation Tegra 4 SoC. The big news of the evening from NVIDIA was that we'd soon see two SKUs for Tegra K1 -- a quad-core Cortex-A15 32-bit chip at 2.3GHz with 192 Kepler GPU cores, or a dual-core Denver core at up to 2.5GHz and a whopping seven-way superscalar architecture...

2014 CES Unveiled
     Wed, Jan 08 2014 | 4:38P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a lot of excited stuff happening at CES 2014. I have to be honest, though, while I think 4K Ultra HD is cool, it is also currently way outside of my budget. I?ve seen a lot about LG?s new 4K TVs and curved screens. I think the technology is great, but I can?t afford it this year. At CES Unveiled: 2014, I went it looking for cool new tech that was within my price range and something that I could see myself adopting soon. I found a lot of cool stuff."
