NVIDIA Tegra K1 successor: Erista, son of Logan, with Maxwell

Those of you with keen eyes for name-changes will recognize a bit of a switch-over this week with NVIDIA’s mobile processor lineup. While each successive generation has been named Tegra in the end, it’s been several years since NVIDIA has used anything but a comic book hero-inspired code-name for a mobile product.* *UPDATE: not so fast! Erista is a comic book character as well!

At the moment you’ll find the folks behind the open-source project known as Limelight working on Android devices, attempting to make the PC streaming option for games through Valve’s Steam work with all devices, not just NVIDIA SHIELD.

iPhone 5S Apple M7 coprocessor “knows” when you are sleeping

More information on the Apple A7 processor and its M7 motion coprocessor has appeared this week along with a set of suggestions on what Apple is working on for the system next. This system exists right this minute inside the iPhone 5S, bringing with it a bit of "always-on" measuring of motion data.

ASUS Transformer Pad reboot teased for September 4th

It would appear that the promotional team at ASUS have decided it's time to begin promoting their next-generation tablet, one that'll transform as the last several generations have and will be revealed in full on the 4th of September. This device is appearing in a black case in ASUS first teaser image, complete with essentially no identifying marks suggesting it's any different from the last Transformer tablet - the logo is even in the same place (essentially). Also this week the folks at Tinhte have dug up an ASUS tablet from the FCC with a look that's quite similar to that of the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300.

Nexus 7 2013 benchmarked: Snapdragon S4 Pro in full effect

Here with the 2013 reboot of the Nexus 7, Qualcomm scores a bit hit with a new version of the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (with Adreno 320 GPU), coming up to battle the original tablet's NVIDIA Tegra 3. This new device works with a much more high-definition display and a new edition of Android with version 4.3, so benchmark comparisons won't be especially telling - or fair, for that matter - but let's have a peek anyway!

Nexus 7 new vs old: the big pixel boost

This week Google reveals the next generation in their Nexus 7 tablet line, keeping the name and amping up the display resolution to nearly double that of Samsung's newest effort. While this device takes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 to the cleaners with its display alone, the most important comparison we can make at this moment is between the Nexus 7 and its biggest competitor - its predecessor!

Xbox One controller standby mode suggests smartphone processor tech inside

Xbox One controller standby mode suggests smartphone processor tech inside

The new Xbox One controller isn't revolutionary by any means, but it's certainly a step up from the Xbox 360 version. It's got impulse triggers that send vibrations to your fingers through the trigger buttons, as well as a flush battery pack on the back to make the controller more streamline. However, one of the minor features that deserves some major attention is a new standby mode that prevents gamers from having to turn back on the controller every time they're AFK.

ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 vs Nexus 7: what you gain and what you lose

This week at Computex, ASUS has revealed the MeMo Pad HD 7, a direct competitor for the Google Nexus 7, both of them working with a 7-inch display and both of them made by the same company. Though it may seem strange at first for ASUS to create a tablet that's so extremely similar to the machine they've got in their deal with Google, the different bits and pieces offered with this new machine may make all the difference. And it all starts with color choices.
