2008 CES Coverage: Tycrid 01-23-2008

GPU computing is something we were not familiar with, but as Chris explained, the key behind GPU computing is utilizing the stream processors on NVIDIA graphics cards. These stream processors can provide anywhere from 10x to 100x speedups in your algorithms over conventional CPU cores. According to Tycrid, a single Titan workstation can replace over 50 dual quad-core workstations!

2008 CES Coverage: The Cars 01-23-2008

The North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center is home to mobile audio, navigation and other vehicle accessories, and is a great place to see some really cool rides. But, being the car enthusiasts that we are, we took things a few steps further and also visited the Imperial Palace Auto Collection AND Exotic Cars at Caesars Palace. Odds are, you won't find all of these cars in any other CES coverage. So, sit back, and enjoy the ride - we sure did!

2008 CES Coverage: Jook 01-23-2008

Jook, a subsidiary of Razer, is a wireless technology standard that allows any portable music player to act like a personal radio station. Basically, Jook wirelessly broadcasts songs to people in the immediate vicinity. Think of Jook as "social networking meets music". With the success of social networking sites like Myspace and Facebook, it only makes sense to expand on this growing market.

2008 CES Coverage: Razer 01-22-2008

This year's Mako is slightly different in looks and functionality from what we saw last year. The new satellite speakers are now more of a flat black instead of the chrome-ish finish we saw last year. Another neat feature on the Mako is the use of Cat 5 cable instead of the traditional audio cables.

2008 CES Coverage: Cooler Master, CSX, Zalman 01-18-2008

Cooler Master also had their line of custom computer case art at their booth, CSX. Cooler Master has teamed up with Smooth Creations to provide these hand-painted, limited edition chassis in many unique designs. I was totally blown away by the quality and detail of these paint jobs. The CSX cases have, by far, the best paint job that I have ever seen on a computer case. Expect to drop off $1200 - $1500 for a custom-designed CSX chassis.

The one difference between CES and AEE is that the AEE is open to fans on specified days.

2008 CES Coverage: OCZ Technology 01-09-2008

Something a bit more interesting is the new Flex2 DDR3 modules. These heatspreaders feature a new fin design that is more efficient when being used as a passive cooling solution. If you want to ramp things up with liquid cooling, each side of the Flex2 has an inlet and outlet, allowing you to fully cool each side of the module with fresh coolant.

2008 CES Booth Babes 01-07-2008
