AMD's New Fury Graphics Cards: Tiny But Powerful

AMD has finally announced its new high-end Fury graphics cards at an E3 2015 extravaganza, and they look pretty impressive — and should bring AMD back into competition with Nvidia’s 900-Series GeForce cards. More interestingly, they’re actually really small.


A Close Look At The Crazy Interfaces From The Avengers: Age Of Ultron

One of my favourite things about watching movies is seeing the film’s vision of the user interfaces on screens and computers. They’re almost always over the top (like they were in the first Avengers) but I love to imagine that we’ll see all those exploded graphics in our future and pretend that all that information would be intelligible.


It's Impossible To Tell The Difference Between Real Life And Video Games

I know which one is reality and which one is video game graphics, and yet my brain keeps flip flopping and pretending like the video game is real life and real life is actually the game. The graphics are so impressive that in some angles I honestly can’t tell which is which.


Apple Is Quietly Repairing MacBook Pros With Faulty Video For Free

Apple has launched a repair program for MacBook Pros from 2011 to 2013 displaying video problems. People with video issues who have the affected models can get them fixed for free, and people who already paid to get their laptops fixed can get a refund. This includes MacBooks with scrambled video, video that won’t turn on and unexpected restarts.


What Happens When The Weatherman's Computer Fails

The weather team down at ABCNews4 just made the most of a horrific, live computer crash. Apparently, the computer that generates the graphics for the TV weather forecasts failed recently, but instead of just standing up there and talking in front of a blank screen, the team created some super half-arsed chicken scratch pen drawings on printer paper.


Nvidia's Next-Gen Grass Simulations Are Mesmerising

When developers are looking for the next jaw-dropping gaming visual to show off their newest titles with, the responsibility usually falls on some shiny, photo-real car porn or a wavy mullet with individual strands blowing in the wind. But the sizzle reels of the future may turn their cameras ground-ward if Nvidia’s new grass-mimicking effect is anything to go by.


ARM's Next-Gen Mobile Graphics Chips Will Save Your Battery

The English-based chip design company ARM has announced its new silicon. As well as churning the pixels, its new graphics chips will play nicely with your battery too.


Alienware 13 Review: The First Futureproof Gaming Laptop

I’ve owned a grand total of two gaming laptops. It was depressing how quickly they aged. But the new Alienware 13 won’t suffer the same fate. It’s the first gaming laptop that lets you connect a external desktop graphics card for freaking awesome, truly unheard-of speed.


Nvidia GeForce GTX 980: The Beast That Sips Electricity

Over the past year, PC graphics cards have swelled to gargantuan proportions, with price tags to match: Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan costs an incredible $US999, to say nothing of the $US3000 Titan Z you might consider if your family is in the oil business. Today, Nvidia’s trying something different: the new GeForce GTX 980 is not only the fastest card Nvidia has ever built, it’s also incredibly efficient.


This Laptop Can Voltron With Its Dock For An Extra Graphics Boost

If you want a laptop that can play graphically intensive games, you’re in a tough spot. Generally, you can opt for something crazy expensive but portable, or something hulking and a little but cheaper. MSI’s new GS30 Gaming Shadow notebook offers a middle ground: Take a slim laptop on the go, and plug into a power-tower at home.
