Earlier this week Dell announced a revamp of its 2018 Dell XPS 13 - including new CPU options, a brighter screen, more colour options and a nifty new hinge.

Most importantly of all, the camera has been moved to the correct place - above the screen. And best of all, this beautiful monster is available in Australia now.

Every year you'll hear a lot about CES "trends". It's basically shorthand for the product or category of product people saw the most on the show floor, most of which has been 8K, something to do with 5G, and so forth.

In the gaming space, the one trend that's impossible to miss at any major brand with a foot in gaming hardware? Enormous, titanic-sized monitors.

Towards the end of last year, ALDI and EB Games started selling arcade cabinets. Small ones, at least, that shipped in flatpacks.

The cabinets were available for a short time and the makers confirmed at CES 2019 that five more cabinets would be coming to market, centred on games like the Mortal Kombat series and Karate Fight. Unfortunately, none of those cabinets will be making their way down under any time soon.

AMD finally lifted the lid on their 7nm consumer devices yesterday. And as part of the big reveal, AMD showed some graphs highlighting the Radeon 7 keeping pace with the RTX 2080, and even outstripping it in one particular game.

But when you dig into the finer details, there's some key info that's missing.

Having transitioned over to the 7nm manufacturing process for workstation-grade GPUs earlier in 2018, there was plenty of attendance around AMD's announcements at CES this year. There was also a ton of hype and supposed leaks, so here's everything the company actually announced.

Earlier today a whole heap of info about the S10 was revealed - including the specs, release date, sizes and UK pricing. Here are all the details.

In the world of CPUs and GPUs, it's not often that you see competitors directly sniping at each other. Sometimes some veiled digs will pop up during the launch of a product or some other event, but by and large that part of the tech industry tends to be pretty civil.

But for whatever reason, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang sat down for an interview and threw that playbook out entirely.

The second generation of AMD's Vega and the first gaming graphics card on the 7nm fabrication process was finally unveiled at CES early this morning, sporting 16GB of high-bandwidth memory and a quoted 25% jump in performance from the previous generation.

Last year, ALDI dropped a nice surprise in one of their weekly catalogues. Instead of bargain bin Xbox 360's or a Bauhn-branded TV, the no-frills grocer was selling flatpack Gauntlet and Street Fighter cabinets.

The maker of those was Arcade1Up. Unsurprisingly, they're expanding their line in 2019 with five more cabinets ranging from Mortal Kombat games to Final Fight and Karate Champ.

Thirty years after the original Game Boy was first released, handheld gaming is as popular as it’s ever been. Smartphones provide endless entertainment, and Nintendo’s current flagship console is even a portable device. But what if 1983-era technology had allowed the original NES to go portable?

When I heard Asus was bringing a laptop called the Mothership to CES 2019, I knew I had to see it. Actually, calling it a laptop doesn’t quite do this thing justice, because it’s one part 2-in-1, it’s one part gaming machine, it’s loaded up with more RGB lights than a UFO, and I absolutely love it.
