Phanteks Launches Sub-Brand MetallicGear

Phanteks has announced the MetallicGear sub-brand which focuses on creating contemporary, innovative, and accessible products for hardware enthusiasts. MetallicGear makes its debut at Computex 2018 with its new line of NEO Series cases. Currently, there are four models under the NEO family. The NEO is a standard mid-tower case made of an aluminum and steel chassis with a tempered glass side panel. This model supports motherboards up to the ATX factor, and it also comes with seven expansion slots. The NEO can house a single 240 mm or 280 mm radiator. The expected MSRP for the NEO is $99.99. The NEO Micro is the micro ATX variant of the family. Due to the reduced size, this model only comes with four expansion slots and support for a 240 mm radiator. The NEO Micro carries a $84.99 price tag.

The NEO Mini is the next model in line which targets mini-ITX users. This particular variant only has two expansions slots. Nevertheless, it has the same radiator support as the NEO. The NEO Mini costs around $69.99. And last, but certainly not least, MetallicGear also offers the NEO-G Mini, which is a slightly modified version of the NEO Mini. The differences reside in the front panel's design and the orientation of the motherboard. The NEO Mini features a conventional vertical orientation, while the NEO-G Mini's design allow the motherboard to sit horizontally on the case. The NEO-G Mini also comes with one extra expansion slot. The price for this model is $79.99.

PlayStation 4K to Feature a 2,304-SP AMD "Polaris" GPU

Sony's upcoming 4K Ultra HD game console, which its fans are referring to as the "PlayStation 4K," while being internally referred to by Sony as "NEO," could feature a very powerful GPU. AMD could custom-design the SoC that drives the console, to feature an 8-core 64-bit x86 CPU based on the "Jaguar" micro-architecture, running at 2.10 GHz; and a GPU component featuring 36 compute units based on "next-generation Graphics CoreNext" architecture.

36 next-gen GCN compute units sounds an awful lot like the specs of the Polaris10 "Ellesmere" chip in its Radeon R9 480 configuration, working out to a stream processor count of 2,304 - double that of the 1,152 on the current-gen PlayStation 4. The SoC is also rumored to feature a 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface holding 8 GB of memory. This memory will be used as both system and video memory, just like on the current-gen PlayStation 4. The memory bandwidth will be increased to 218 GB/s from the current 176 GB/s. Besides 4K Ultra HD gaming, this chip could also prepare Sony for VR headsets, leveraging AMD's LiquidVR tech.
