We’ll be updating this page throughout the week as exciting new products from Sony, AMD and others are introduced. Until then, scroll down for CES 2023 highlights. Consider this a tl;dr for CES 2023 – if you’re only reading one CES recap (but why stop there?), make it this one.
This folding also slides
Samsung presented us with an attractive mobile device concept,. As shown in the model above, it can tilt like the left side of the Flex Hybrid and the right side can be slid to extend.
The concept comes courtesy of Samsung Display, not the mobile arm of the South Korean megacorp responsible for making and selling phones. But a press release showing the concept promises that it will bring “innovative OLED products of all sizes, small, medium and large, to glimpse the future of displays” to CES. Samsung isn’t the only company concerned with the future of phones – check it out— so watch this space for more flip, fold and scroll widgets.
3D laptop (without glasses)
– not literally, but close. Its OLED display makes for a glasses-free 3D experience, just like rival Acer’s similar IPS version. The OLED screen is important because the technology promises noticeably sharper 3D rendering. Asus’ 3D panel, aimed at creatives, uses eye tracking to create a 3D experience.
Smart watches want to know you’re okay
There are plenty of smartwatches to track your heart rate, sleep quality and blood oxygen levels, but Citizen takes things a step further with its feature., which measures fatigue and alertness levels. He will even tell you – that is, whether you are a night owl or an early riser. This is another sign that smartwatch makers are increasingly focusing on measuring the effects of sleep and stress on overall well-being.
The world’s thinnest gaming laptop
Alienware surprised us, including the Alienware x14, which the company claims is the world’s thinnest 14-inch gaming laptop. Featuring a 2560 x 1600 pixel display with a 165Hz refresh rate, it will be available starting at $1,799 when it goes on sale this winter. The larger version, the Alienware x16, starts at $3,099. These laptops are for people who are willing to sacrifice power for sleeker designs.
Invisible laptop touchpads
LG held its presentation, has a hidden touchpad that only appears when you touch the palm rest. A hidden haptic touchpad lights up under your fingers when you touch it and shows you where to press and swipe to navigate the screen. It’s a neat detail we didn’t know we wanted.
A giant leap for PC gamers who also use consoles
Dell’sAt first glance, it looks like a third-party Xbox controller, but with some fancy lights. Unfortunately, it is more than that. The Nyx controller has a bunch of hidden inputs that enhance the functionality of the controller.
The idea seems to be to bridge the gap between gamepad and keyboard. PC gamers can use hotkeys to have dozens more inputs than a typical gamepad, which is often limited to the options provided by the d-pad. This means they can use a wider range of attacks in an MMO, or cycle between six or seven weapons in a first-person shooter, rather than the two or three that console players have.
Roku entered the conversation
, essentially competing with its own partnerships with more established TV makers like TCL, Hisense and Sharp. The move has long been rumored and makes a lot of sense for the streaming device maker. Roku TVs will come with branding popular (and still useful) include . Looks like LG and Samsung have new competitors.
TV that puts everyone to shame
This is the world’s largest OLED TV:It was actually introduced last year, but it went wireless in 2023. This means that the world’s largest screen, allowing for the best picture technology, is now free of that hideous mess of cords. We’ve been covering TVs at CES for years, and we’re even surprised—CNET TV guru David Katzmaier is so impressed that LG puts all other TVs to shame with this one.
Upcoming Upgrades to Your Laptop Brain
Bright screens and dazzling displays are nice, but it’s often the technology you don’t see the most. Intel has submitted a shipmentit will power a wide range of products and increase the performance of a wide range of laptops.
The improvements they can bring are less abstract than chip performance. The new generation of Intel processors brings Unison, which lets iPhone and Android devices send and receive texts from your computer, as well as Thunderbolt 4, which will let you run two 4K external displays as standard, among other improvements. . Expect to see these features in product announcements over the next few days.
Cloud gaming, now in your car
Nvidia’s main announcement concerns improvements to GeForce Now, its cloud gaming service that lets you stream games to laptops, phones and more. In short, the power of Nvidia’s GeForce 4080 GPU comes to the cloud. If you subscribe to the premium level of GeForce Now, now known as GeForce Now Ultimate, you can now stream games at 240Hz, use ray tracing (significantly improves in-game light rendering) and DLSS 3 (uses an algorithm for upscaling). frame rate while maintaining image quality).
More,. If your car has a dashboard display, you can play while the car is parked. If there are screens behind the driver or passenger seats, those sitting behind can play on the road. For starters, Nvidia has partnered with Hyundai, BYB and Polestar.
