Surface 2 Review

Surface 2 Review

Microsoft really, really needs the Surface 2 to succeed. Praise around the first-generation Surface RT's hardware and design was tempered with more than a little criticism of Windows RT, and confused consumers left tablet manufacturers focusing on Windows 8 until only Microsoft's slate was left running the pared-back version. The Surface 2, then, aims to give Windows RT a second chance, but is Microsoft finally onto a winner or simply flogging a dead horse? Read on for the SlashGear review.

NVIDIA Editor’s Day 2013 Wrap-up: G-Sync, 4K, and gaming’s blurred lines

NVIDIA Editor’s Day 2013 Wrap-up: G-Sync, 4K, and gaming’s blurred lines

Though the event continues to be called "Editor's Day", this week we had an extended stay with NVIDIA in Montreal, learning about the company's newest in gaming development and hardware innovation. The biggest news of the event was surely the unveiling of G-Sync, a hardware module made by NVIDIA to be planted in the backs of high-end gaming monitors, making their functions slave to GeForce GTX graphics cards, but that wasn't the only big push made by the company for industry. Also making appearances were NVIDIA SHIELD, development initiatives through GameWorks, and some of the biggest names in game development today.

NVIDIA Project Logan runs Faceworks in real time

This week at an event in Montreal, NVIDIA showed off the high-powered demo software called Faceworks (previously working on NVIDIA Titan processors for PC) working on the next-generation mobile-aimed processor Project Logan. This processor will almost certainly be re-named Tegra 5 as each "Project" codename has been re-named "Tegra #", and what we've seen here is an ultra high-powered graphics-intensive beast of a demo on it running just as smoothly as we've seen it run on some of the most powerful graphics processors available from NVIDIA for desktop machines.

NVIDIA Tegra TAB specifications leaked via FCC: Tegra 4 on tap

With the dawning of the age of a non-Tegra Nexus 7 this year with the ASUS-made Qualcomm-packing 2013 edition of the tablet, NVIDIA appears to have created a high-powered 7-inch slate of their own. Following the path started with the NVIDIA SHIELD gaming device, this tablet looks to take command with a backside camera (in a premium model only, they say), along with a 7-inch display up front and NVIDIA Tegra 4 under the hood. This set of specifications comes from an early FCC listing as such.

NVIDIA SHIELD update edges in on PC Streaming final release

Though PC streaming from NVIDIA SHIELD is still considered "Beta" by the company itself, an over-the-air software update coming this week has increased the number of games supported by the device officially up to 31. This OTA update suggests that NVIDIA is edging in ever-closer to a final bump for the machine into Go Time - for now, our tests have already proven the system to be more than capable of handling the games we've wanted to play out in the wild.

NVIDIA Tegra Tab leaked: 7-inch stylus-toting SHIELD companion

This week the folks at NVIDIA appear to either have had a leak in press photos or have a big enough fan out there that they've made their own Tegra-themed tablet. What we're seeing here is an NVIDIA Tegra Tab, a 7-inch tablet that very well may be the tablet version of what we've been working with in NVIDIA SHIELD. This tablet first appeared on MyDrivers, very much appearing to take on more than just the NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor power of the gaming portable - this device is ready to get rugged.
