At CES 2015, MSI updated their range of gaming laptops in the GE series, but the most interesting part of the launch was the use of Nvidia’s new upper-midrange GeForce GTX 965M, which is based on the energy-efficient Maxwell architecture and has a lot in common with the desktop GTX 960.
Acer arrives at CES 2015 with the 17-inch Aspire V17 Nitro in tow. Like its 15-inch sibling, it’s a low-key, elegant device with a Haswell processor and the Maxwell-based Nvidia GTX 860M. It also comes with the Kinect-inspired feature RealSense.
The Alienware M11x was Dell’s first attempt at an ultraportable (sort of) gaming laptop, which was rather successful. Earlier this year, Dell announced a modern follow-up in the form of a new 13-inch Alienware 13, which positions itself between the manufacturer’s now-defunct 11,6-inch and 14-inch models.
Nvidia’s press conference at CES wasn’t just about the company’s upcoming (and very cool) portable gaming console Project Shield.

Moore’s Law is apparently still valid as far as Intel is concerned. The chip giant is already well ahead of the competition and intends to trample it yet again by moving to a 14nm production process while competitors like AMD remain at 28nm or higher. A smaller production process leads to more energy-efficient chips that […]
MSI is now launching a laptop with a professional-grade Nvidia Quadro K2000M graphics card. The model in question is the GT60 and other than the GPU it appears to have the same feature set as the GT60 gaming laptop. Gaming laptops are usually high-end machines, so using them as professional workstations is never a bad […]
If you are currently playing or plan on playing Black Ops 2, Hitman Absolution, Assassin’s Creed III or Planetside 2, you should definitely consider the latest 310.61 beta driver from Nvidia.
