Digital Storm's latest gaming all-in-one packs a 10-core CPU
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 May 2016, 6:00 am

The trend of gigantic all-in-one gaming PCs isn't ending any time soon. Digital Storm has unveiled a new version of the Aura, a 34-inch curved system that packs some truly high-end hardware. To begin with, it's one of the first PCs to use Intel's enthusiast-oriented, Broadwell-E-based Core i7 Extreme Edition processors -- you can equip it with up to a 10-core chip if you're bent on juggling multiple apps at the same time. You can also stuff in a GeForce GTX 1080 to make sure games play smoothly at the Aura's ultra-wide 3,440 x 1,440 resolution.

Welcome to Computex 2016!
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 May 2016, 4:28 am

In the middle of humid Taiwan, Computex is a show mostly all about computers. There's always other stuff, but it centers on PCs. ASUS started the show a little early, but we're also hearing from Intel, Microsoft and more about what to expect over the next year or two. Mobile computing is The Thing now, so the likes of Qualcomm will have something to say as well. Virtual reality has ushered in a renaissance in PC gaming, and we're sure that'll also inform what we see this year.

You'll find the news right here -- we''ll be reporting all week.

Intel's first 10-core desktop CPU will cost $1,723
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 May 2016, 2:00 am

Now that the megahertz race has slowed down in the desktop processor world, the new race is all about more and more cores. To that end, Intel just announced its first 10-core desktop CPU, the Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition, today at Computex. (It's had 10-core Xeon CPUs for servers since 2011). The new processor will run at 3GHz (with boost speeds up to 3.5GHz), pack in 25MB of cache and feature Intel's new Turbo Boost 3.0 technology. Just but be prepared to pay through the nose for the privilege of owning it, as the 10-core i7 Extreme Edition will run you $1,723.

Jukebox Heroes: Wild West MMO tunes

“Wait a minute,” you say out loud to your computer. “Western MMORPGs aren’t a thing, except in my fondest dreams. How can you write an entire column on music from these imaginary games?” It is true, there really aren’t many (if any) “wild west” MMOs, but that isn’t to say that we are lacking for western areas and themes in [...]

Twin Saga shares its story premise in a new trailer

Do you remember Twin Saga? We first heard about it a month ago, but it’s been a bit quiet since then. Perhaps you had a custom t-shirt made to celebrate your love for the game based solely on screenshots, only to throw it angrily into the dirt when no more news surfaced. If that’s the case, it’s time to go [...]

Blizzard cracks down on Overwatch porn
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 May 2016, 1:00 pm
Surprising exactly no one familiar with Overwatch’s art style, people are already making porn of it. Rule #34, guys. PCGamesN ran the numbers and found that Tracer is the chief target, which again won’t surprise anyone given her controversial pin-up motif. Blizzard isn’t amused, however, and has issued takedown notices to the porn purveyors. “A bunch of this porn is [...]

Real-world 'Pong' might just beat the video game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 May 2016, 1:00 pm

If you miss the days of playing Pong with old-school dial controllers but would rather not track down a vintage console or arcade cabinet, today's your lucky day. Daniel Perdomo and crew have built a real-world Pong machine that replicates the pioneering game with physical parts. Despite what it looks like, it's not just an Atari-themed air hockey table. Instead of letting physics take over, the machine maps virtual ball and paddle movements to objects. All the eccentricities of Pong gameplay are intact, just in a more tangible (and arguably, far more immersive) form. LEDs track the score, while the controllers are rejiggered hard drives.

Catch up with Computex 2016: Day one
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 May 2016, 2:00 pm
Computex is typically ASUS' show. Every year, the Taiwanese company takes to Taipei to unload a host of its wares and, in the process, steal the lion's share of the show's headlines. Well, 2016 is no different as ASUS has taken the wraps off a slew of devices including an ultraportable that's thinner than Apple's own MacBook, Surface-like 2-in-1 PCs, three new ZenFones, a charming robot assistant for the home and a me-too mobile VR headset. Don't fret if you whiled away the holiday weekend and need to get up to speed on day one of the show -- we've got you covered in the video above and the gallery below.
