While most of the attention was directed at the new Radeon R9 Fury X as well as Radeon R9 and R7 300 Series cards during their official Malaysian launch event earlier this week, AMD did bring a couple of surprises to the event. They came in the form of two upcoming graphics cards: the Radeon R9 Nano and a yet to be named graphics card that features dual Fiji GPUs.
It was only few weeks ago at E3 2015 that AMD has finally taken the drape off its latest pride and joy, a brand new GPU chip codenamed Fiji which is the foundation of several graphics card including the Radeon R9 Fury X. As opposed to the company’s Radeon R9 and R7 300 Series graphics cards which is already widely available in our market, it is quite hard to source an R9 Fury X in Malaysia at the moment but that didn’t stop AMD from having an official Malaysian launch event for it earlier this week anyway.
These days, more and more desk-bound jobs require employees to be working in front of computers in excess of eight hours a day. As a result, injuries related to long-term usage of keyboard and in particular mice have cropped up dramatically over the years. Besides spending less time using a computer (which may not be possible for some), the only other option would be to find accessories that are designed to reduce fatigue-related injuries. One such product is the Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse.
Not many people can afford such an extravagant television like Samsung’s new SUHD TV lineup, but oh boy, it’s definitely a looker. We had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the flagship JS9500 model, and we can say one thing: for anyone that can afford such luxury, this is one model to keep your eye on (sometimes literally).
vivo has just launched the X5 Pro in Malaysia today. Equipped with a Snapdragon 615 and a premium metal construction, it is retailing for RM1,599, which is pretty high for a mid-range device. That being said, during my hands on with it, there are certain aspects of the X5 Pro that warrant the asking price.
The MSI GS30 Shadow is an interesting product. On one hand, it is a lightweight and portable laptop with a very capable processor and integrated graphics. But once the laptop is connected to the GamingDock, it turns into one beastly gaming machine that can be equipped with a desktop graphics card. While this is a very interesting take on portability and power (when you need it), is it worth its asking price that starts from RM7,499?
You might be familiar with motion sensing controller such as Kinect or Leap Motion but how about eye tracking? Truth to be told, both alternative method of computer interactions is still quite niche among consumers (with the exception of game consoles) but that doesn’t stop MSI from exploring the option of having eye tracking capability into its laptop.
With the help of a Swedish company called Tobii Tech through its EyeX technology, MSI has implemented that very feature into a special GT72 Dominator Pro gaming laptop which the company has showcased at its booth during the recent Computex 2015 in Taipei.
Finally, HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2015 has arrived in Malaysia. But it isn’t the HTC One M9 that was announced at MWC 2015, instead, it’s a bigger and HTC says, a better version – the HTC One M9+ that was first unveiled in China in April 2015. We’ve been using the phone for several weeks now, and here’s what we really think of it.
Arcade machines hold a special place in our hearts, at least for those of us who are old enough to remember the proper ones. Once upon a time these massive monoliths were the only way a kid could place video games, and as a result arcades were a very popular place. One company believes that it can bring the wonder and joy of playing on an arcade machine to the mobile gaming mindset of today. Meet the Nanoarcade.
Even though Sony Malaysia didn’t mention it outright through the media invite to the launch event that will take place later today, we are quite confident that one of the devices that was featured on the teaser on its official website is the brand new Xperia Z4 Tablet. After all, Sony Malaysia has confirmed that the two devices that were shown on the teaser as Xperia C and Xperia M4 Aqua.
So, what is the tablet all about then? Well, read on further to learn more.
It was first unveiled at CES 2015 but as weird as this might sounds, this gaming laptop somehow has yet to make its way into the market. Nevertheless, AORUS – the specialized premium gaming laptop arm of GIGABYTE – still claims that AORUS X5 as the most powerful 15-inch gaming laptop in the world.
