There’s also USB 3.1, Mini Display Port and a combo of headphones and microphone port, as well as HDMI 2.0b. Sticking to the Razer tradition, the laptop packs a Razer Chroma lit keyboard, with anti ghosting support. Front stereo speakers are here, plus a HD webcam and 80 Wh battery with support for NVIDIA Optimus tech.

The graphics cards include your choice of the GTX 1060 Max-Q or the GTX 1070 Max-Q. The laptop has a thickness of just 16.8 mm and it’s made of a single block of aluminum, via CNC process.

Today’s First Video Worth Sharing: The Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop

By Tim

Today we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets on the Xiaomi Mi Gaming laptop. This is a solid gaming laptop, but has a serious flaw when it comes to the keyboard. It also happens to be quite expensive at roughly  $1280 currently for the config tested in the review.

It is available with an Nvdia GTX 1050 or GTX 1060 GPU. Thermals are not an issue at all, but fan noise is rather high and the choice by Xiaomi to add some macro buttons in a poor area of the keyboard  makes for some issues.

Those issues aside, as far as game performance goes, this is a very solid performer.

So all that being said, make sure to visit the TechTablets YouTube channel and subscribe if you want to see a wide variety of tech items tested and reviewed. Now let us proceed to show you that promised video!

As usual make sure to check out our new YouTube channel for the occasional video worth watching!

GPD Win 2 Handheld Gaming PC Starts Shipping, After Successful Crodwfunding

By Radu Iorga

We’ve covered a few of the GPD gaming tablets and consoles over the past year or so and it seems that the latest one is a hit. The GPD Win 2 handheld gaming PC feels like a Nintendo DS had babies with a small laptop. It just started shipping, after its crowdfunding was a success.

We’re dealing with a clamshell device, which is a bit larger than a beefy phone and packs a 6 inch touchscreen. GPD managed to get $2.7 million for its product via Indiegogo funding campaign and the first batch of 1200 units are ready to ship to backers by May 15th. An extra 7000 units will ship later this month and retail availability will also happen in the coming months.

The list price is a hefty $699, but you are getting 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD, plus an Intel Core M3-7Y30 CPU, so enough power for any gaming you can imagine on the go, in such a small format. Up to 10 hours of battery life is a nice promise and the full QWERTY keyboard is a welcome extra. We also get action buttons, shoulder buttons, thumbsticks, d pad, the works. The screen has a 720p resolution and the device went through some changes, as it started out as an Intel Atom x7 unit with 64 GB of eMMC storage.

 

It’s got two 4900 mAh batteries and is made of aluminum and ABS. I was expecting to see it with Android, but it’s got Windows 10 Home instead, so this kind of limits the access to games. Well, at least GTA 5 runs on it, according to the crowdfunding page.

Nintendo Switch 2 Rendered Beautifully by German Designers, Gets More Touch Controls

By James A.

It’s way too early to talk about the Nintendo Switch 2, especially since the first device is expected to have a lifespan of 5-6 years and it’s barely within its first year. However, the German designers of Curved/Labs are already looking into it, having rendered a concept of the future machine.

They keep the core format that became a hit, but also make some welcome improvements. First of all there are no more arrow buttons on the Joy Con, replaced with a touch pad. The screen is now larger, at 7.3 inches, but keeps the 1280 x 720 resolution. I would have preferred Full HD or Quad HD, but I can live with HD. The on screen elements have been enlarged for easier device operation and the Joy Cons now support bigger rails.

They’re actually extendable rails, that can be enlarged and connected together. USB Type-C connector and a protective cover accessory are here, the latter also letting you attach keyboards or an extra E-Ink screen. Even an NVIDIA Tegra X2 CPU gets a quick mention, although by 2023 a Snapdragon 1000 will be a safer choice. 64 GB of storage and a microSD card slot are here and if I were to guess the real Nintendo Switch 2 will also put a larger focus on VR and AR, so better cameras and maybe some headset to hook up to the machine…

Excellent concept design overall.

Nintendo Switch Reaches 17.8 Million Units Sold, Continues to Rock

By Radu Iorga

Nintendo Switch seemed like a big gamble back in 2016, an interesting product in early 2017 and it quickly became a hit last Spring. The Wii was a hit, the Wii U a flop, so there was uncertain terrain to cover, particularly with a portable console. And here we are, a year and a month after the device’s launch, with 17.8 million units sold.

Nintendo made a financial announcement recently and with it came this news, too. The sales surpass the total Wii U lifetime sales, which required 5 years to pull off. The Switch is still far from the 100 million units of the Wii, but judging by how it’s moving, it’ll surely get there. Recently DOOM finally came to the console and devs are also porting some nifty JRPGS as we speak.

The console has received several accolades, like TIME’s “Top Gadget of 2017”. Nintendo also promised to offer full software support for the console for over 5-6 years, so basically its whole lifetime. The previous milestones of sales included 10 million units in just 9 months and 7.63 million in hald a year. Nintendo Switch was also able to beat the PS4 initial 6 months sales, in case you’re wondering.

The past month also saw the launch of the Labo, which is a way to make DIY creations and play with them. It feels like the Google Cardboard meet Ikea and the Sony PS Vita AR cards and they hooped up together within a series of cards and cardboard pieces, which can be hooked to the console and Joy Cons.
