Origin doing razor thin gaming laptops with EVO series


That's 'razor' with an 'o' and not Origin the EA thing and not EVO the tournament
Jul 15
And I thought people referring to Early Access games as "EA" was confusing. Origin -- the PC manufacturer -- debuting its EVO series laptop right after the end of EVO -- the fighting game tournament -- is a good one. Anyway, here's a new $2,000 laptop you should expense if you work for a wealthy company. read

Nvidia's Titan Z costs more than the last car I bought


By $500 and it doesn't even take me to and from the welfare office
May 29
Nvidia is preparing to launch the previously announced GeForce GTX Titan Z. It costs three grand. Roughly $.50 for each of its 5,760 CUDA cores or $250 for each gig of its 12GB GDDR5 VRAM. This is not a product for normal human consumption, of course, unless you are a lunatic or think your four door sedan could use a jet engine. read

But I did come across a piece of hardware that I'll use for my extra machines, or in special cases given one of its neat tricks -- the Feenix 2014 Nascita Gaming Mouse. read feature
