ASUS Launches Gladius II Origin Gaming Mouse

ASUS has launched the third iteration of their Gladius gaming mouse, the Gladius II Origin (a missed chance for a Gladius III, uh?) There's a 12,000 DPI optical sensor under the hood (unclear if it's a PixArt solution), and the switches are both Omron-developed, though two different ones at that - there's an Omron D2FC-F-K switch and an Omron D2F-01F, with different clicking resistances, likely to incentivize sensitivity in the left mouse button. All in all, there are five buttons on this mouse (there's a DPI selector button and two thumb buttons on the left side of the mouse).

Other features include detachable, replaceable rubber and braided cables; RGB lighting with ASUS' Aura Sync support for the RGB zones (bottom, scroll wheel, and ROG logo); and support for ASUS' Armoury app. The Gladius II Origin weighs in at 110 g (sans cable), and has dimensions of 126 x 67 x 45 mm, and is available now from select etailers and retailers for $99.

SteigerDynamics Demonstrates Interesting, Flexible SFF Case Lineup at CES 2018

SteigerDynamics took the opportunity granted to them by taking part in a world-renowned tech show floor of CES 2018 to showcase an interesting lineup of SFF computer cases, with powerful systems integrated in a small footprint. These are usually considered the more impressive feats of engineering in the computer space, really; how much performance you can squeeze in a limited space, without compromising component reliability, cooling, and acoustics for the particular environments these will be used in.

SteigerDynamics has shown they do know how to engineer these systems, for sure. Their LEET Gaming Room/Living Room Gaming PC is a little on the bigger side, but it still carries a small footprint, in a pretty package, for the amount of high-quality hardware it's packing. A Maximus Hero X, a Core i7-8700K at 5 GHz, 16 GB of G.SKILL Trident Z DDR4 memory and EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC, are almost as high-end a configuration one can have already. Add in the 2x 512 GB Samsung 960 PRO SSDs, and the 4x 1 TB HDDs in RAID 10, and there really isn't much to fault with this unit. Even power is taken care of by a Seasonic PRIME Titanium PSU. And to keep all of these high-performance components cool, the SteigerDynamics LEET carries a fully custom watercooling loop, that aids in silence and aesthetics. Just follow my lead here: don't look at the price-tag. It's really not for the faint of heart.

ROCCAT Delivers Entire Gaming Station Worth of Products at CES 2018

ROCCAT at CES 2018 wanted to prove something: that they're a far-reaching, all-encompassing gaming product company. To that end, it seems the one question ROCCAT engineers, salespeople, and overall team wanted to answer: "Can we deliver an entire ROCCAT-branded gaming station?" The answer, it would seem, was a resounding "Yes, we can."

ROCCAT showed how it had the input game fully in control with its Horde AIMO keyboard, Kone AIMO gaming mouse, and Kanga mouse mat. However, gaming is not just about these mechanical inputs; there's a lot to be said about environment and sound cues, as well as teammate coordination.

"Bloody Gaming" Lets CES 2018 Attendants Feast on Myriad Product Offerings

Bloody Gaming may not be a mainstay in gaming peripherals and products, but the company certainly made its presence felt at CES 2018 via its impressive filled-to-the-brim booth. The company dips its toes anywhere where there's money to be made that has a gaming tinge to it: headphones, keyboards and gaming mice hold no secrets for this company. The company's Bloody gaming headset lets its hybrid diaphragm technology with Carbon Fiber Mycellium compounds carry most of its attractiveness weight (the color schemes are the most common of all, really: black, red and white offerings are all there).

AKRacing Shows Off Gaming Chairs at CES 2018

AkRacing likely isn't as well-known as some other high-profile gaming chair makers, but it's a company that certainly has a lot of confidence in their ability to design a superior quality products. The company showcased its gaming chair lineup at CES 2018, which includes offerings in various colors, such as red and blue, catering to most gamers' favorite color choices (apparently, companies just can't go wrong with any manner of black + another color combo, really). The company's offerings are spread out throughout three different products categories: the Core Series, which is the more basic configuration; Office Series, which aims to bring maximum comfort to what should be essentially work environments; and Master Series, the company's product pinnacle, which are also, appropriately, the most expensive and more complete options.

However, one of the things that attracts most attention with AKRacing's gaming chairs is the warranty: the company offers a five year warranty on the chair itself (cushion materials, and so on), while offering an overwhelmingly good 10-year warranty on the chair's frame. This particular advantage of AKRacing's over other gaming chair-producing companies could be the hedge the company needs for increased relevance in this market.

Razer Solves Wireless Gaming Mice' Biggest Put Off: Weight

Razer 2018 International CES, demonstrated its solution to the biggest complaint serious gamers have with wireless gaming mice - their weight. Wireless mice run on batteries, and even if not bulky AAA ones, the relatively lighter lithium ion batteries in some of the more expensive wireless mice still add unnecessary weight that affects gameplay, particularly in games that demand rapid mouse movements. This isn't that much of a problem for non-gamers. Razer's solution to the problem is an implementation of electromagnetic induction, the same phenomenon that enables things like wireless charging, transformers, and modern human civilization to function.

The new Razer Mamba HyperFlux is a two-piece product - first is the mouse itself, that looks like a Razer Mamba, one of the company's most popular ambidextrous gaming mice; and second - the Razer Firefly HyperFlux mousepad. This is a medium-size, 4:3 cloth mousepad, which has an induction coil underneath. The surface is detachable (for cleaning). The mousepad plugs into one of your USB ports for power, while the mouse talks to your PC over a wireless USB dongle. The mouse needs this particular mousepad to function, which sparks an interesting debate on the logic behind this product.

NVIDIA GeForce 390.65 Driver with Spectre Fix Benchmarked in 21 Games

The Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities have been making many headlines lately. So far, security researchers have identified three variants. Variant 1 (CVE-2017-5753) and Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) are Spectre, while Variant 3 (CVE-2017-5754) is Meltdown. According to their security bulletin, NVIDIA has no reason to believe that their display driver is affected by Variant 3. In order to strengthen security against Variant 1 and 2, the company released their GeForce 390.65 driver earlier today, so NVIDIA graphics card owners can sleep better at night.

Experience tells us that some software patches come with performance hits, whether we like it or not. We were more than eager to find out if this was the case with NVIDIA's latest GeForce 390.65 driver. Therefore, we took to the task of benchmarking this revision against the previous GeForce 388.71 driver in 21 different games at the 1080p, 1440p, and 4K resolutions. We even threw in an Ethereum mining test for good measure. Our test system is powered by an Intel Core i7-8700K processor overclocked to 4.8 GHz, paired with G.Skill Trident-Z 3866 MHz 16 GB memory on an ASUS Maximus X Hero motherboard. We're running the latest BIOS, which includes fixes for Spectre, and Windows 10 64-bit with Fall Creators Update, fully updated, which includes the KB4056891 Meltdown Fix.

WHO Classifies Gaming Addiction as a Psychological Disorder

The World Health Organization (WHO) has now officially classified gaming addiction as a disorder, thus being listed as a mental health condition that is diagnosable. The WHO announced the new disorder today, which is bound to be included in the organization's 11th International Classification of Diseases (ICD) guide, which is due to be published this year.

Despite having its inclusion in the ICD confirmed, gaming addiction as a disorder still doesn't have a finalized transcript. It's still in the draft stages, and at this time, gaming addiction is being described as a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior so severe that it takes "precedence over other life interests". From the draft, the WHO is looking at extended diagnosing periods of at least 12 months until it can be confirmed that someone suffers from this disorder, though the diagnosis time frame can be reduced "if symptoms are severe".

Atari Team Teases Us with Photos of Upcoming Ataribox Controller

Initially the Ataribox team wanted to wait until the console's launch to officially reveal the controller's design. But they just couldn't help themselves and decided to share a few photos of the controller on their Facebook page. As expected, the Ataribox's controller maintains a squared design with a familiar layout similar to the original Atari 2600's controller. There's a single joystick in the middle and a big fire button in the corner of the controller. The joystick appears to sit on a translucent, glossy black surface with LED lighting. However, we're not 100% sure on the lighting as it could have been a result of the camera's flash at the angle of which the photo was taken. We will just have to wait until launch day to verify. What's worth noting, though, is that the modern iteration of the controller is accompanied by home and back buttons, which weren't present on the original design.
