Alienware Second Screen Concept : First Look!

Alienware demonstrated their Second Screen concept at CES 2020, as a showcase of what they are dreaming up for the future of PC gaming.

What is the Alienware Second Screen, and how useful can it be? Check it out and tell us what you think!

 

Alienware Second Screen Concept : First Look!

Alienware Second Screen is not a product or device, but a smartphone app. It is designed to offer you the ability to monitor your gaming laptop or PC using your smartphone as the “second screen”.

Competitive gamers who want the very best from their systems need to keep track on performance stats, just like how runners keep track of their heart rates, and race car drivers keep track of their RPM and oil temperature.

These are available through a separate PC application, which requires a switch to check stats. Even if it offers overlays with live data, that takes up space on the display and detracts from the game.

The Alienware Second Screen app would let you monitor those stats directly on your smartphone.

The Alienware Second Screen concept app currently supports :

  • Speed monitoring for CPU, GPU and RAM
  • Temperature monitoring for CPU and GPU

The team plans to add these features in the future :

  • Lighting controls
  • Overclocking, thermals, and other quick performance settings
  • Frames per second monitoring
  • In-game integrations (e.g. team kill count, maps, inventory)

 

Alienware Second Screen Concept : Price + Availability

The Alienware and Dell gaming teams are still working on the Second Screen app, so there is no word on both price and availability. Yes, it’s possible that Second Screen won’t be a free app.

That may be surprising because when it’s launched, Alienware Second Screen will support only Alienware and Dell G-Series gaming laptops and desktop PCs.

So tell us what you think about the Alienware Second Screen concept! Useful or meh?

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT | RX 5600 : A Quick Primer!

AMD just announced two new graphics cards – the Radeon RX 5600 XT and the Radeon RX 5600, that they promise will deliver the ultimate 1080p gaming experience.

Here is what AMD has revealed so far about the Radeon RX 5600 XT and Radeon RX 5600 graphics cards!

 

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT | RX 5600 : A Quick Primer!

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT and Radeon RX 5600 use the same Navi GPU as the Radeon RX 5700, with 10.3 billion transistors fabricated using the 7 nm process

The Radeon RX 5600 XT is essentially the Radeon RX 5700, with slower clock speeds and a 192-bit memory bus instead of a 256-bit memory bus.

The Radeon RX 5600 maintains the same slower clock speeds and 192-bit memory bus, but has some stream processors disabled.

They both have a lower TDP of 150 watts, 6 GB of GDDR6 memory, and have a PCI Express 4.0 x16 interface.

 

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT | RX 5600 Specifications

In this table, we compare their specifications against the Radeon RX 5700, and the Radeon RX 5500 XT.

Like the Radeon RX 5500 XT, they are both AIB-only cards. So these are only reference specifications :

PCIe Interface PCIe 4.0 x16 PCIe 4.0 x16 PCIe 4.0 x16 PCIe 4.0 x8

 

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Performance

AMD is targeting the Radeon RX 5600 XT at gamers who are looking to upgrade from 3+ year old cards like the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.

In their internal tests, it handily beats that 3.5 year old card by 55% on average – a significant performance difference.

Against a newer card like the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, the performance gap narrows but it promises to be about 10-20% faster.

Finally, AMD pit it against the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER, showing 5%-15% better performance.

 

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Price + Availability

From what we understand, both the Radeon RX 5600 XT and Radeon RX 5600 are AIB-only cards like the Radeon RX 5500 XT.

However, only the Radeon RX 5600 XT will be available for retail sale from AMD’s brand partners starting from 21 January 2020 onwards, with a suggested e-tail price (SEP) of US$279.

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 will be available only in OEM systems, and will ship in the first quarter of 2020.

AGPCLK / CPUCLK from The Tech ARP BIOS Guide!

AGPCLK / CPUCLK

Common Options : 1/1, 2/3, 1/2, 2/5

 

AGPCLK / CPUCLK Quick Review

The AGPCLK / CPUCLK BIOS feature allows you to set the ratio between the AGP clock speed and the CPU bus (also know as front side bus or FSB) clock speed.

This allows you to keep the AGP bus speed within specifications (66 MHz) while using a much faster CPU bus speed.

When the ratio is set to 1/1, the AGP bus will run at the same speed as the CPU bus. This is meant for processors that use the 66 MHz bus speed, like the older Intel Celeron processors.

The 2/3 divider is used when you use a processor running with a bus speed of 100 MHz. This divider will cut the AGP bus speed down to 66 MHz.

The 2/5 divider is used when you use a processor running with a bus speed of 166 MHz. This divider will cut the AGP bus speed down to 66 MHz.

Generally, you should set this feature according to the CPU bus speed you are using.

This means using the 1/1 divider for 66 MHz bus speed CPUs, the 2/3 divider for 100 MHz bus speed CPUs, the 1/2 divider for 133 MHz CPUs and the 2/5 divider for 166 MHz CPUs.

 

AGPCLK / CPUCLK Details

The AGP bus clock speed is referenced from the CPU bus clock speed. However, the AGP bus was only designed to run at 66 MHz while the CPU bus runs anywhere from 66 MHz to 133 MHz.

Therefore, a suitable AGP bus to CPU bus clock speed ratio or divider must be selected to ensure that the AGP bus won’t run way beyond 66 MHz. This is where the AGPCLK / CPUCLK BIOS option comes in.

When the ratio is set to 1/1, the AGP bus will run at the same speed as the CPU bus. This is meant for processors that use the 66 MHz bus speed, like the older Intel Celeron processors.

The 2/3 divider is used when you use a processor running with a bus speed of 100 MHz. This divider will cut the AGP bus speed down to 66 MHz.

The 1/2 divider was introduced with motherboards that provide 133 MHz bus speed support. Such motherboards need the 1/2 divider to make the AGP bus run at the standard 66 MHz. Without this divider, the AGP bus would have to run at 89 MHz, which is more than what most AGP cards can withstand.

The 2/5 divider was introduced with motherboards that provide 166 MHz bus speed support. Such motherboards need the 2/5 divider to make the AGP bus run at the standard 66 MHz. Without this divider, the AGP bus would have to run at 83 MHz, which is more than what most AGP cards can withstand.

Generally, you should set this feature according to the CPU bus speed you are using. This means using the 1/1 divider for 66 MHz bus speed CPUs, the 2/3 divider for 100 MHz bus speed CPUs, the 1/2 divider for 133 MHz CPUs and the 2/5 divider for 166 MHz CPUs.

If you are overclocking the CPU bus, you are supposed to reduce the divider to ensure that the AGP bus speed remains within specifications. However, most AGP cards can run with the AGP bus overclocked to 75 MHz. Some would even happily run at 83 MHz! However, anything above 83 MHz would be a little iffy.

In most cases, you can still stick with the original AGP bus / CPU bus clock divider when you overclock the CPU. This means that the AGP bus will be overclocked as well. But as long as the AGP card can work at the higher clock speed, it shouldn’t be a problem. In fact, you can expect a linear increase in AGP bus performance.

Be warned though – overclocking the AGP bus can potentially damage your AGP card. So, be circumspect when you overclock the AGP bus. 75 MHz is normally the safe limit for most AGP cards.

Watch Thieves Steal Computer Parts From An Internet Cafe!

We have all seen footage of thieves stealing laptops, tablets and smartphones, but have you seen thieves steal computer parts from an Internet cafe that is open 24/7? Watch how they removed an entire PC chassis and then steal its parts, without anyone catching them in the act!

 

Watch Them Steal Computer Parts At An Internet Cafe!

On 13 April 2018, two guys walked into the Orange Internet Cafe in Setiawangsa, Kuala Lumpur. In less than 8 minutes, they removed an entire PC chassis, stripped it of its parts and walked out the main door.

7:42 AM

  • Thief A identifies two empty rows of computers, and starts by unpacking a large plastic bag.
  • Thief B takes up station next to Thief A, blocking view of his actions from anyone passing by.

7:43 AM

  • While Thief B pretends to play a game, Thief A unplugs the computer chassis.
  • After removing the computer chassis, Thief A proceeds to stuff it into his large plastic bag.
  • Thief B leaves, presumably to scout ahead and make sure the toilet at the back was clear.

7:44 AM

  • Thief A lugs the computer chassis in the plastic bag, while keeping an eye out for people.

We later found out that he lugged the computer chassis to the toilet, where both of them stripped the chassis of its parts.

[adrotate group=”2″]

7:49 AM

  • Thief A and Thief B left the computer chassis in the toilet and begins leaving the Internet cafe

7:50 AM

  • They are both seen leaving the Orange Internet Cafe, passing the counter staff who was totally unaware of what just happened.

As you can see, it took them less than 8 minutes to completely remove a computer chassis to the toilet, strip it of its parts and leave by the front door.

We were not privy to what was stolen, but we can see that Thief A did not bring a bag, and Thief B only brought a small sling bag. Most likely, they removed the graphics card, memory modules, hard disk drive or SSD, and possibly its CPU and cooler.

The Orange Internet Cafe has offered RM 500 / ~US$ 128 in reward money for information leading to the arrest of these thieves.

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 HEDT Gaming PC Up Close!

At IFA 2017, one of the most exciting products that Acer revealed was the 18-core, quad-GPU behemoth known as the Acer Predator Orion 9000! We had the opportunity recently to take a close look at the Orion 9000, and get updated on its price and specifications.

 

The Acer Predator Orion 9000

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is a massive HEDT (High-End Desktop) PC that boasts an 18-core processor, and up to four graphics cards. It has a silver-and-black chassis with a spacecraft design and customisable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel.

To showcase the powerful hardware inside, it has a massive side window panel with a metal mesh that keeps its electromagnetic interference (EMI) in check. Up to 5 fans can be installed, with customisable RGB lighting to create a virtual light show. The two side panels are also tool-less, allowing for easy upgrades.

Despite its size, Acer made it easy to move – it is outfitted with two handles and wheels covered with a carbon fibre pattern. It also has a headset cradle and cable management to keep everything tidy during and after the move.

Liquid Cooling & IceTunnel 2.0

The Predator Orion 9000 features AIO liquid cooling for the CPU, and Acer IceTunnel 2.0 to keep the temperature down even in the most demanding conditions. IceTunnel 2.0 is an advanced airflow management design that separates the system into several thermal zones, each with an individual “airflow tunnel” to expel heat.

[adrotate group=”2″]

There are huge metal mesh panels on the front and top that allow more cold air in, and the rising hot air of the liquid-cooled CPU out. Up to five 120 mm fans can be installed in the front, top, and back to channel cool air through the chassis.

Part of the airflow is redirected towards the back of the motherboard tray to cool the storage devices. The graphic cards feature blower-style fans to drive the heat out from the back, while the PSU is self-contained to avoid thermal interference.

Extreme Performance For Gaming & Content Creation

The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is powered by a choice of an 18-core Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor, or Intel Core i9 X-Series / Core i7 X-Series processors, with up to 128 GB quad-channel DDR4 memory. It comes with a choice of two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards in SLI, or in some countries, up to four AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards!

The Alienware Aurora R7 & Other Gaming Products Revealed!

Dell just revealed a new version of their Alienware Aurora gaming desktop – the new Alienware Aurora R7, powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel Core processor. They also revealed a bunch of other Alienware gaming products from curved gaming monitors to gaming keyboards!

 

Introducing The Alienware Aurora R7 Gaming Desktop!

Previously codenamed Coffee Lake, the 8th Generation Intel Core processors deliver 40% better performance, thanks to the addition of two processor cores over the 7th Generation processors. This greatly improved performance boosts the new Alienware Aurora R7‘s gaming performance by up to 25% over the Aurora R6.

Dell was not able to bring in the new Aurora R7, so they set-up the previous-generation Aurora gaming desktop for us to check out. The only difference between the Aurora R6 and the new Aurora R7 is the processor upgrade to the 8th Generation Intel Core processor.

The Aurora is Alienware’s smallest dual-graphics mid-tower desktop. Despite its svelte form factor, it can support CPU water cooling and overclocking, as well as two full-sized graphics cards. It also features customisable AlienFX lighting, and a steel-reinforced magnesium-alloy chassis with tool-less access for easy upgrades.

The ROG Strix GD30 Gaming Desktop Revealed!

Together with the ROG Zephyrus gaming laptop, and the ROG GT51 gaming desktop, ASUS also launched the first ever ROG Strix desktop – the new ROG Strix GD30 gaming desktop. What’s new or special about the ROG Strix GD30? Let’s find out!

 

The ROG Strix GD30 Gaming Desktop Revealed!

Let’s start with a presentation on the new ROG Strix GD30 by Louis Lu (ASUS Product Manager).

And here is a quick look at the new ROG Strix GD30 gaming desktop up close.

Easy Customisation

The ROG Strix GD30 has a black and white sci-fi and cyberpunk-inspired design that Star Wars fans will appreciate. But what it offers over other gaming desktops is the ability to detach the two front panels, and rearrange them to create 6 different styles.

A matching white LED strip bisects the two panels, while the transparent side panel has an iron honeycomb screen. That’s not just aesthetically pleasing, it also reduces EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) from the system.

The detachable panels can be painted, of course, and ASUS provides a 2D layout so you can design and plan your decals. If that’s not enough, ASUS even offers a 3D source file for a miniature GD30 that you can build using a 3D printer.

Powerful Gaming Options

[adrotate group=”2″]

The ROG Strix GD30 comes in multiple configurations, with the top model featuring a 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700 CPU, 32 GB of DDR4 memory, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8 GB of memory.

Great Connectivity Options

Connect all the peripherals you want with four USB 2.0 ports and seven USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports. One of the USB 3.1 ports has a reversible Type-C connector that provides up to 15W of power for fast-charging devices.

For easy access, there are two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.1 ports, a memory card reader, and both microphone and headphone jacks located at the top of the front panel alongside the power and reset buttons.

 

Price & Availability

The ROG Strix GD30 (GD30CI) gaming desktop is now available with the following specifications for a launch price of RM 7,499 / ~US$ 1,789, inclusive of the 6% GST.

  • Intel Core i7-7700
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with 8 GB GDDR5 memory
  • 16 GB DDR4-2400 memory
  • 256 GB M.2 PCIe SSD + 1 TB HDD

The 2017 ASUS ROG GT51 Gaming Desktop Revealed!

Let’s start with a presentation on the 2017 ROG GT51 by Louis Lu (ASUS Product Manager).

Full Core CPU Overclocking

The 2017 ROG GT51 is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor that ASUS has aged for 40 hours, and overclocked by 14%. With their Turbo Gear feature, you can enable full-core overclocking without having to reboot the system. The ASUS Hydro Overclocking System ensures rock-solid stability during overclocking.

Awesome Graphics

Advanced Cooling System

[adrotate group=”2″]

The 2017 ROG GT51 boasts a multi-zone thermal solution that decreases system temperature by up to 31%, even under the heaviest of loads. The CPU is liquid-cooled, while the GPU has a dedicated air channel. The power supply unit, found in the bottom corner of the chassis, features its own isolated airflow design.

Customisable 8-Million Colour LED Lighting

Dynamic light effects illuminate the case, including the iconic ROG logo and twin side-light strips. You can even customize the RGB LEDs on the air intake with any of the 8 million colors! And when you overclock ROG GT51, the dramatic OC lighting mode is activated.

ROG Band

The wearable ROG BAND lets you access Shadow Drive — a hidden storage space for keeping your personal and confidential data safe. You can also use ROG BAND to activate the overclocking mode.

 

Price & Availability

The 2017 ASUS ROG GT51 (GT51CH) gaming desktop is now available with the following specifications for a launch price of RM 11,999 / ~US$ 2,859, inclusive of the 6% GST.

Iron Man-Inspired ROG GT51 Gaming Desktop Revealed!

During the launch of the ROG GX700 liquid-cooled gaming laptop, Republic of Gamers also unveiled the ROG GT51 gaming desktop. This Iron Man-inspired system is a winner of the 2016 CES Innovation Award, as well as the iF Design Award. But it’s not all beauty without brawn. Under the steely facade is an awesome gaming machine. Let’s take a look!

 

ROG GT51 – Inspired By Iron Man

Inspired by Iron Man, the ROG GT51 has an sharp-angled polygonal design with an Arc Reactor motive in the front. The “Arc Reactor” is actually a fully-functional turbine fan with pulse-width modulation (PWM) control that draws in fresh air. There is even a 4-zone LED lighting feature that supports up to 8 million colours, and a preset OC lighting mode that is activated when the system is overclocked.

 

Overclocked For Maximum Performance

The ROG GT51 gaming desktop is powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, that is cooled by the ROG-patented liquid-cooled Hydro Overclocking System. That allows you to overclock all cores to 4.6 GHz using the Turbo Gear one-click feature. Even its DDR4 memory is overclocked from 2133 MHz to 2800 MHz.

For UHD gaming at over 60 frames per second, the ROG GT51 supports up to two NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards. And to ensure that everything loads at maximum speed, it features up to two 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSDs. When paired in a RAID 0 array, the SSDs deliver transfer rates of up to 400 MB/s – 6X faster than SATA SSDs.

To ensure that nothing overheats, even during marathon gaming sessions, the ROG GT51 boasts a multi-zone cooling design that lowers its internal temperature by up to 31%. In addition to the Hydro Overclocking System, there are dedicated air channels to draw cool air to cool the graphics cards. Even its power supply unit is isolated with its own dedicated airflow.

Raw performance isn’t its only goal. The ROG GT51 also boasts an ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amplifier that powers the front audio jacks. This gives the gamer audiophile-grade sound with high dynamic range, low noise and low distortion.

The ROG GT51 will come with the ROG Band. This is a NFC-enabled band that can be used to authenticate the user for quick access to Shadow Drive. Shadow Drive is a hidden and encrypted partition that provides safe storage of confidential data. The ROG Band can also be used to quickly activate the overclocking mode.

 

ROG GT51 Price & Availability

The ROG GT51 will be available in June 2016. As such, the local price has yet to be determined.
