    ViewSonic Unveils Three Pro-Grade Monitors for Color-Critical Applications

    Uh, no mention of what version of DisplayPort it has, and their website says refresh is only up to 60hz if I'm not mistaken... doesn't seem worth the price tag at all that VP3881...

    The Witcher Franchise Passes the 25 Million Games Sold Mark

    Late to the party but thought I'd add that Skyrim is trash compared to Witcher 3. Played and beat both, enjoyed one, was bored to death with the other. Skyrim has the most boring plot I've ever seen. Even the first Super Mario had a better plot than that. Some of the side quests were O.K. but...

    NEC Announces MultiSync EX341R Curved Ultrawide QHD Display

    That's the point -_- I too am tired of these low ass refresh rates on these "new" monitors with outdated DisplayPorts.

    Acer Unveils the XR382CQK 38-inch Ultrawide Curved Monitor

    If ASUS comes up with a similar panel, we can only hope that it AT LEAST has DP 1.4, for, you know, 120Hz or more...

    Ultra Widescreen Confusion, 2560x1080 =/= 21:9 =/= Anamorphic

    And then there's this monstrosity... http://www.pcgamer.com/acers-ginormous-375-inch-ultrawide-freesync-monitor-emerges-for-1300/ Like, wtf kind of resolution is 3440x1600? Cause that's FAR from any of the ratios mentioned in the original post, being 2.15:1. Like not even in the same ball park...

    Synology Launches Synology Router RT2600ac and VPN Plus

    XOTIC PC Ships Gaming Desktop and Laptops With New 6th Generation Intel CPUs

    Oh right, I forgot people still do those, which usually turn out to be bulk power hungry egg-frying "laptops".

    Windows 10 Attains RTM Status

    It's almost as exciting as the time when Windows 7 came out. I remember that day as if it was yesterday. I bought myself a 7-meat mini burger at White Castle to celebrate. Good times good times.

    Ultra Widescreen Confusion, 2560x1080 =/= 21:9 =/= Anamorphic

    This whole mumble jumble of constant incorrect pixel/aspect ratio had me turning my head a few times. Starting with, why is 21:9 called 21:9 instead of just 7:3 which is the exact same. To relate to 16:9 because dumb people wouldn't have made the connection otherwise... Ok, got that. Then I...

    AMD Radeon HD 7970M Arrives on 24th

    Personally been waiting for this! My laptop currently has a 7690 XT, which isn't... the best XD. I'll have my current laptop (HP ENVY 17 3D-3000) for the same with new Ivy Bridge and this. Should have waited a bit, lol.

    Iiyama Announces the G2773HS 120 Hz Pro Gamer Display

    1080p on 27"? Yeah, not in 2012 when a 10" iPad has far more resolution. Also, is it missing Display Port? I got rid of DVI's cables long ago. I wonder how long it will take for DP to fully replace DVI once and for all...

    Intel to Push for Higher Resolution PC Displays, Arrive in 2013

    If angles is the concern, then display should be switched to 2D. But I thought eventually displays with 2D/3D option would become mainstream. Those who not like it can simply keep it off.

    Intel to Push for Higher Resolution PC Displays, Arrive in 2013

    Is it me or is the whole 3D hype dying? I know most folks here consider it to be gimmick blah blah, but I thought that 3D everything was to become standard at some point, no?

    Intel to Push for Higher Resolution PC Displays, Arrive in 2013

    YES!!! FINALLY it seems like the monitor industry is taking a step! How long have we been stuck at 1080p? The couple of 1440p and 1600p monitors have been too expensive to even come close to mainstream, not to mention they usually lack features found in 1080p displays. I'm really, really happy...

    Crysis 3 Pre-Orders Spotted with Leaked Banner

    EA buys developers (ie. BioWare). EA imposes stupid terms on acquired company (ie. "must release a title every year"). Developers are pressured/rush things up. Game = Sucks ??? EA -> Profit

    Crysis 3 Pre-Orders Spotted with Leaked Banner

    My thoughts exactly. Even I was surprised at the whole "worst company of America" thing, but was made clear when a lot of the games we liked got screwed up. Besides Mass Effect that you meantioned, they also screwed up one of my favorite franchises, Dragon Age. The 2nd installment was super lame...

    EIZO DuraVision FDH3601 On Display at NAB 2012

    2 DVI's? Display Port cannot achive this? How slow are we advancing? I seriously thought 4k TVs/monitors were already in production at some Asian factory =_=; I am disappoint. Here we have 10" iPads with a 2048x1536 resolutions, and we can't even get a 36" display at 4k without selling all our...

    Nintendo Wii U Costs Around $300: Sources

    Thank you! This is what I've been trying to say for a while! For fun, and all time favorites, there's Wii. For graphics and all the "hardcore" stuff, there's PC. Anything in between is meh, depending on your taste. I know I'm a PC-Wii person.

    Nintendo Wii U Costs Around $300: Sources

    That is because they just happen to be the best. Even if FFXIII, MGS3, Assassin's Creed 2, Resident Evil 5, and the likes were somehow released on Wii, the Nintendo games will still stand out more. Really, if I wanted much more superior graphics and online experience, I'd stick to PC, not...

    Nintendo Wii U Costs Around $300: Sources

    @FordGT90Concept 1. Yes, and Ubisoft (read: non-anonymous) also said the system was several times more powerful. It's a rumor, you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet. Or else we all could be Nigerian millionaires by now. 2. With that logic, we could argue that the Wii has...

    Nintendo Wii U Costs Around $300: Sources

    I'm fed up with all this speculation crap. Not, not the $300 price tag, I'm fine with that, but just about everything else that is being speculated about the system. Before the Wii was released, and when it was known as "Nintendo Revolution," I remember people being super optimistic on the...

    Are there any Bluteooth 4.0 (BT Smart) headphones/headsets in the market?

    Google gave me no results, but I'm still curious since my laptop and phone uses BT 4.0. If not, any hint of one?
