Earlier this year, AORUS Gaming which is essentially a gaming sub brand of GIGABYTE stormed into CES 2014 armed with a slim but highly powerful 17-inch gaming laptop called X7. Few months after that at Computex 2014, the company followed up with a refresh for the X7 as well as new models with smaller display sizes called X3 and X3 Plus.
So, what’s next then? Well, we have a reason to believe that brand’s next product might be called AORUS X5 and is set to be unveiled to the world very soon.

Intel’s RealSense camera is like installing an Xbox Kinect into a tablet; without making it too thick. We had the chance to experience what it can do at Intel’s Future Showcase in Singapore, where two versions were on display; one on a reference design tablet, and the other installed into a laptop.
Intel expects wireless charging to grow exponentially within the next few years and is currently investing heavily in the technology. A presentation made at the Intel Future Showcase held in Singapore outlined the company’s strategy for wireless charging in the near future; which includes a separate standard from the current popular Qi wireless charging technology.

Nokia may have sold its devices division to Microsoft, but it is still apparently very capable of putting out new products. At least it is capable of getting some extra attention ahead of the Slush conference in Finland where the head of product business, Sebastian Nystrom, will be talking about the future of the company.
Heroes of the Storm is adding three (or five) new heroes to its roster. Two of which were noticeably missing from the Technical Alpha, while the other one (or three) are a reference to a classic Blizzard title that is rarely remembered.
