Razer Core V2 makes for an instant gaming laptop http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171024/razer-core-v2-instant-gaming-laptop/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171024/razer-core-v2-instant-gaming-laptop/#comments Tue, 24 Oct 2017 12:00:17 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268629 razer-core-v2When one talks about laptops, the general idea is this: laptops are not meant to function as a gaming machine, unless stated otherwise. The thing about gaming laptops is this, they tend to be rather bulky and are great power guzzlers due to the kind of powerful hardware packed underneath the hood. Razer decided that you can have the best of both worlds through the introduction of the Razer Core V2. The Razer Core V2 is able to transform highly mobile Thunderbolt 3 laptops into a portable, desktop-class gaming machine where all it requires would be a solitary Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection in order to hook up your existing laptop to this graphics enclosure.

Chances are, after you have hooked up the Razer Core V2 to your laptop, the bottleneck would no longer be in the video card department. Rather, it would most probably be the processor, hard drive, or even lack of memory that causes gaming performance to drop. We say this because the Razer Core V2 boasts of the world’s first dual Thunderbolt 3 internal controller design which will sport separate lanes for graphics and connected devices, delivering fluid gameplay. This external graphics enclosure will be accompanied by a quartet of USB 3.0 ports as well as Gigabit Ethernet in order to hook up a wide range of different peripherals.

Made from a block of durable raw aluminum, the chassis is CNC precision milled in order to deliver a very compact form factor. It comes with its own 500W power supply in order to deliver a right amount of power when it comes to graphics and connected devices, while extra cooling fans have been built into the design to help dispense heat quickly in order to achieve an optimal level of performance. It can fit an expanded range of taller graphics cards, including support for the NVIDIA GeForce 10 series and AMD Radeon 500 series with XConnect technology. The Razer Core V2 will retail for $499 apiece and is currently available for purchase.

MSI Vortex G25 is a small form factor gaming beast http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/msi-vortex-g25-small-form-factor-gaming-beast/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171017/msi-vortex-g25-small-form-factor-gaming-beast/#comments Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:00:42 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268455 vortex-g25When it comes to gaming, one very important element that most people would take into consideration first would be the kind of hardware that the gaming PC packs underneath the hood. The case itself might look really, really pretty, but if it does not have any high performance parts within, it would amount to nothing, either. MSI knows this, which is why they have come up with the Vortex G25 gaming desktop that will not only be able to deliver the level of performance that hardcore gamers crave, it will also look good without taking up too much space on your desk.

The Vortex G25 is not a conventional gaming desktop, courtesy of its small form factor setup. Taking it apart, it will be powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, with the ability to handle up to a GTX 1070 graphics card, all within a 2.5-liter chassis. Now that is really compact, no matter which angle you are looking from. Apart from that, the Vortex G25 gaming desktop will also boast of MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan technology that will feature dual blade fans that work in tandem with eight heatpipes. This setup will be able to ensure proper cooling of the CPU and GPU, which in turn provides a 30% performance gain compared to the previous generation of processors.

One of the main reasons for developing the Vortex G25 is to have it function as a gateway for portable and convenient VR experiences. The front panel itself features a power jack which can help to power connected VR headsets, while there is also an HDMI port and a couple of USB 3.0 ports in terms of connectivity. MSI’s very own Nahimic VR software will be able to optimize performance and virtual surround sound so that the whole virtual reality experience is even more immersive.

Expect the MSI Vortex G25 to retail for $1,999 and $1,499 for the Vortex G25-022US and the Vortex G25-023US, respectively.

Logitech MX ERGO wireless trackball rolls back the years http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171013/logitech-mx-ergo-wireless-trackball-rolls-years/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20171013/logitech-mx-ergo-wireless-trackball-rolls-years/#comments Fri, 13 Oct 2017 12:00:07 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=268341 logitech-mx-ergoThe humble trackball has lost the battle, so to speak, against the mouse when it comes to a pointing peripheral on a desktop. In fact, the trackball was also eventually phased out from notebooks, with IBM’s pointing stick making a last stand before the touchpad finally prevailed over the rest of its competitors. Here is a blast from the past with an update from the 21st century: the Logitech MX ERGO wireless trackball.

What makes the Logitech MX ERGO wireless trackball special? For starters, it does not come with any kind of wire or cable as well, which means there is no need to hook it up to your notebook or workstation, and that makes the entire workspace look less cluttered. This wireless trackball will set a new standard when it comes to navigation comfort and precision, being the first of its kind in close to 10 years. The Logitech MX ERGO delivers a personalized level of comfort with a unique adjustable hinge and precision tracking, offering multi-device connectivity for trackball enthusiasts as well as those who would like to enjoy an alternative compared to the regular mouse and touchpad.

It is said that the Logitech MX ERGO is able to reduce muscular strain by up to 20% compared to using a standard mouse. The adjustable hinge enables the user to increase the angle from 0 to 20 degrees, and this in turn improves wrist posture and pronation. With a carefully sculpted shape, your hand will enjoy full palm and finger support, where the soft rubber on the top will deliver a good and comfortable grip that is suitable for long hours of work.

Apart from that, the Logitech MX ERGO also brings with it the latest tracking technology so that it is faster and more precise, being able to instantly change your cursor speed and accuracy for optimal control with the press of a button. The presence of an LED light will illuminate when precision mode is activated, although do not expect this $99.99 wireless trackball to end up replacing your gaming mouse.
