“One company with really a variety of products on display this year was Cooler Master. Up in their suite they had many different new products from both the main Cooler Master line and their Choiix line. They have new cases, power supplies, coolers, notebook coolers and even more! So let’s take a look at Cooler Master’s 2010 lineup."
Dell was pre-announcing this machine that is soon to be released and for us at least, it was a proverbial show-stopper. The M11x is built on an 11.6-inch LCD form-factor and from what we could tell, it's svelte, well-built, super stylish and rugged. You can think of it as a mini version of the M15x or M17x series but we think it's just darling either way you look at it.
The NVIDIA booth was home to a mezmerizing setup that consisted of three projectors displaying a racing simulation across a single wide screen. The system consisted of two, soon to be released GF100 cards in SLI. We were told that one graphics card powered one of the projectors while the other GF100 powered the other two displays. That leads us to believe that NVIDIA's Surround technology requires more than one GPU, but we'll see if that's the case at launch.
For this contest Asus was looking to stir buzz and interest in the enthusiast do-it-yourself community for their new line of P7P55 Xtreme design series motherboards and of course they were looking to unload some pretty high-end gear on some very lucky people in exchange for that buzz. Asus reached out to HotHardware's community members and asked what they would do with the Xtreme Design features on ASUS motherboards. They also asked what kind of Xtreme Design computer build they would put together if Asus supplied parts from sponsor partners: INTEL, NVIDIA, ANTEC, G.SKILL, RAZER, SAMSUNG.
"On display at the SilverStone booth at CES was an array of their latest offerings being showcased for the attendees. One item of particular interest was their prototype mini-ITX chassis Sugo SG07. Why the interest? Take a look at the video Legit Reviews took of Silverstone Product Manager Tony Ou providng a product overview and you'll see that they have managed to fit the 12.2" (309mm) ATI Radeon 5970 card and a custom, single-rail 600w power supply into the tiny chassis measuring a mere 222mm(w) x 190mm(H) x 350mm(D)...."
“Last year at CES Antec really showed off with their new Skeleton cases, power supplies and gaming cases. This year Antec has really taken things to the next level with a new line of cases, finally an update to the LanBoy case and some other really cool products. If you are a fan of Antec you are really going to like their 2010 lineup, let’s take a look!"
With the New Year came CES, the largest consumer electronics expo in North America. We traveled to Las Vegas to attend the event and bring you the scoop on some of the latest products from the main players in the computing world.
As it’s becoming more common, the majority of big announcements were made even before the show started as every company tried to jump ahead each other in order to grab everybody’s attention. This year wasn’t the exception and in fact the few major announcements made throughout the week were promptly taken care of in our regular news coverage. Thus this article is not meant to be a memory refresher, but to give you a brief outlook on what we observed and what caught our attention during the show.
CES 2010 brought developments from all of the manufacturers looking to improve their product lines and make them more appealing to consumers and retailers alike. Cooler Master was no different and this year you can look forward to many new products from the maker of the popular HAF case and V10 heatsink.
