The four PC gaming stars of E3 in Futurelooks opinon are a pair of sequels and a pair of new games. The sequels are to Modern Warfare and Bioshock, both games were very well received by fans of their respective genres, Bioshock more for the story and interesting use of Plasmids, CoD: Modern Warfare for its more realistic take on combat. The two new games are very different, one covers the exploits of a famous Navy SEAL; the other is a designed as a multipl

DigiTimes saw a lot of vendors as they toured Computex this year, but the main thing they noticed was the focus on portability. Most of the first part of their look at this trade show is taken up
by mobility products along with some interesting entertainment devices from MSI. The second part features the huge V10 cooler from CoolerMaster and even more mobility products. The digital picture frame with built in scanner is

At first glance, more news about tessellation in games raises very little interest; we have been hearing that it is just around the corner for almost a decade now. A second look reveals that not only are they right this time, but AMD has the fully DX11 compliant 40nm silicon to prove it. Sure the current generation of GPUs from AMD can do tessellation in benchmarks, but no games support the technology. With DX11 we will finally see the arrival of tessellation as well as some other interesting improvements. You can find pict

Computex has barely gotten underway for those who flew all the way to Beijing and E3 starts tomorrow in Los Angeles, making this a bad time to be a hardware or software reviewer, but a great time to be an enthusiast. Ryan is on point at Computex, with frequent updates going up to the front page. However as it is midnight there, it is worth taking a break from Computex to see what Ars Technica has in the way of a preview of E3. EA and Activision ar

The MSI table had a lot to show off at the recent CES. There were two new lines of laptops, the X-Slim series, which bears a strong resemblance to the Macbook Air. Thanks to the 8 cell battery, you can expect up to 10 hours of run time before you run out of juice. The G series is the polar opposite, weight and battery life are sacrificed in order to make these notebooks attractive to gamers. Breaking 10,000 in 3DMark06 isn't top shabby for a notebook. Think Computers also saw so

Reporting 'live, as it happens', especially at an electronics trade show, does have some drawbacks. You benefit from the feeling of being there and capturing the moment and get to see a lot of cool new kit for the first time without waiting for a full write up. That quickness does tend to make the reporting a little more shallow since there simply isn't time to full cover all the details. Ars Technica has revisited a lot of what they covered at CES in a more indepth fashion, which you can see h

If the videos that Ryan posted over the weekend still haven't satisfied your desire to see everything that was on display at CES 2009, follow the links below and you can pretty much be guaranteed to have caught as much coverage as is humanly possible. You can start off by taking a look at the current tablet for the OLPC project as captured by The Tech Report. It isn't a powerful gaming laptop by any means, it's a fairly simple Atom based tablet with a 60GB hard drive that only weighs 2.8lbs, perfect for a child

One of the biggest headaches for tech innovation right now has to be the economic downturn. Not just because their own jobs may be in danger but also because buying new luxury items really isn't at the top of most people lists. The gang at CES 2009 is soldiering on regardless, bringing all the newest toys, gadgets and tools to show off. Many displays are toned down compared to last year; but there is still a wide variety to see. Check out AnandTech's highlights here.

Think Computers had a chance to drop by the CES before CES, known as the Digital Experience. It's a slimmed down version of CES, where the represented companies only show off the newest, as yet unseen products, leaving the already announced items for CES proper. Head over for four pages of new kit you have never seen in the wild until now.

ASUS definitely isn't sitting on its hands with this whole "Eee" branding thing. While we have in the past poked fun at the company's desire to put the Eee moniker on just about ANYTHING they could paint white, at CES yesterday ASUS showed off quite a few interesting new products in various stages of development. The most exciting was probably the Eee Keyboard PC - a fully functioning computer in a stylized keyboard that has an iPhone-sized touch pad on the right hand side where the number pad would usually be located. The back of the unit has connections like Ethernet, DVI/V

CES 2009 is in full swing, but instead of heading to the tech displays, the first thing Legit Reviews did was try out the massage chairs. Luckily, someone managed to pry them out of the chair and forced them to take some pictures. Corsair is showing off 64GB thumb drives and some really impressive triple channel kits. They played with the Novint Falcon , and recorded it so you can get an idea how exactly the new controller works. AMD and LogiTech also had some interesting booths set up, so head ove
