Apple MacBook Pro series of laptops is capable and powerful. It is even more so now with the latest update, but however ‘powerful’ they may be, the graphics department is not up to par when compared to its desktop compatriots. Understanding that some users may need insane graphics, Apple and Blackmagic Design has come together to design and launch a new external graphics process unit (eGPU), simply called Blackmagic eGPU. Continue reading You Can Boost Your MacBook Pro’s Graphics With This Blackmagic eGPU
Game graphics requirement and graphics card are like two knife-wielding person stabbing at each other. You never know which demands the bump in technology first; the game or the graphics card. That’s one mystery which I attribute to as the magic of supply and demand. Anyways, barely a year on since the introduction of NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX “with shocking sticker,” the Santa Clara graphics card maker has unveiled its newest flagship, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, at the 2017 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

When you are promised with next-generation flagship graphics cards, you are likely to expect next-generation price points too (read: expensive), but it seems like that doesn’t applies to NVIDIA new flagships, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. Announced on the day ahead of the largest BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) gaming events, DreamHack, happening at Austin Convention Center, the pair of graphics cards are obviously geared towards gamers and packs 8GB of next-generation GDDR5X graphics memory technology from Micron. There’s a catch here though; the next-gen memory is only found on the 1080 model and not the 1070. We are not surprised at all as there’s no reason for 1070 to outperform the one true flagship, right? Continue reading NVIDIA Unveils New Flagship GeForce GTX Graphics With Shocking Sticker
Today’s gaming laptops are pretty capable, but that’s in the mobile sense, which means they are as good as they gets and hardly comparable to desktops. So chances are, hardcore gamers will have both a portable such as a gaming laptop for the road and a full blown gaming rig setup at home. However, that might change with the introduction of the Alienware Graphics Amplifier, well, that’s only if you’re planning to purchase the Alienware 13 gaming laptop, cos’ this “graphic booster”, which only works with a proprietary connector on the Alienware 13. Dell calls it having the best of both worlds by giving you the freedom of mobility and also offers you desktop graphics quality, thus solving your graphics woes (when you’re at home, that is).
