MSI GX60 review: pixel pumping is its priority

Shot of the MSI GX60 Is there such thing as enough CPU power? MSI seems to think so with the release of the MSI GX60 gaming notebook. That's because, intriguingly, the MSI GX60 pairs one of AMD's A10 fusion CPUs with the AMD Radeon HD 7970M graphics chip. So that's a budget-orientated processor combined with the fastest GPU AMD currently offers. Bold move, MSI. For gaming, of course, graphics grunt has always been critical. Indeed, Intel has been winding back on CPU performance in recent years as ...

Why DSLR is best for shooting video

DSLR Digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras have come a long way. The biggest advantage is the addition of video, and not just any video 1080p video. HD Camcorders have always been favoured for shooting video, even when DSLRs suddenly came bundled with video, they couldn’t quite do the job. Now DSLRs offer a "best of both worlds" solution to budding photographers who also need to capture professional-looking video. When did we realise that DSLR’s were a better fit for video? When ...

Japan will start world’s first 4K TV broadcasts by 2014

4K television was this year's big tech news, wowing the crowds at CES 2013 and stomping all over 3D television's promises of better viewing for the future. Yet the general consensus was that 4K broadcasting was still many years in the making. But according to a report in the Asahi Shimbun (translated), the Japanese government plans to start 4K TV broadcasts as soon as July 2014, two years earlier than its previous estimate. Currently there is literally nothing that can be ...


China is considering revoking its ban on gaming consoles [report]

China flag My gaming fanatic colleague Charlie just sent me an email at midnight in his timezone (he’s in the US), so either it’s a drunken missive or it’s big news. Turns out it’s the latter: Chinese government sources have told the China Daily that “authorities are reviewing a decade-long ban on game consoles and considering the possibility of opening up the country’s video game hardware market.” Banned since 2000 on the grounds of “the potential harm” to children, gaming consoles like the PS3, PSP, ...

Although the Pentax Q10 is largely based on the Pentax Q, the new model boasts several improvements to the performance and operation of the camera. The same reduced size Q-mount has been used, along with the relatively small 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor format that produces a crop factor of ...



3002426059_80015e2902_z Is 3D dead? Should you be happy that new apparent replacement for HD is slowly being buried under four thousand pixel screens? The first time I went to a 3D movie it was, yes you guessed it, Avatar. It was grand. I can't say it was great, but grand it certainly was. It looked like it was heralding the newest, greatest step in movie history since the introduction of colour. And then I walked out the theatre. It was weird, my head ...
