Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE
A dual-screen gaming machine
Asus ROG’s Zephyrus Duo 15 SE which is powered by Nvidia RTX 30 series and Intel 11th Gen, surely stands out from other laptops on the market. Justifying the ‘duo’ in its name, the laptop packs a secondary screen that the company calls the ROG Screen Pad Plus.
We are excited to see this product launch in 2021 because dual-screen laptops are becoming a thing now: a second screen increases usable on-screen space.You can read more about the Zephyrus Duo here.
Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 12 GB
A 12GB entry level GPU
The RTX 3060 is Nvidia’s entry-level 30 series card that packs a GDDR6 VRAM of 12GB which is oddly higher than the RTX 3080’s 10GB GDDR6 VRAM. Nvidia boasts that the 3060 can deliver up to 90 fps on demanding game titles at 1080p resolutions.
The RTX 3060 comes in at a price of only Rs.29,990 considerably cheaper than the Rs. 34,000 RTX 3060 Ti. We are keen to see the launch of RTX 3060 as it packs the potential to become one of the most powerful and best budget gaming GPUs on the market.
Razer Project Brooklyn
A gaming chair that goes beyond the old concept
Gaming Chairs is not a new concept in itself. You may be sitting in a gaming chair right now while reading this article. However, Razer wants to take things on a different level by going beyond the old concept.
The company has introduced Project Brooklyn an ergonomic, carbon fibre gaming chair with RGB lighting that comes with an attached 60″ OLED display, which folds back into the chair whenever it’s not in use.
Razer has launched gaming chairs in the past however this is something completely bewildering and we are excited to see this launch in 2021. You can read more about the product.
LG bendable monitor
A shape morphing monitor
Alongside numerous oled monitors, LG has unveiled a bendable monitor. In it’s normal state the monitor looks like a usual 48 inch 4k TV however with the click of a button the monitor morphs itself into a 1000R curved screen.
The normal state is useful while watching movies or videos while the curved state is useful while gaming providing an immersive experience. We are really excited to see this shape morphing monitor launch in 2021.
Intel Rocket Lake CPUs
Team Blue’s ultimate comeback? Probably.
Intel’s anticipated next-generation line of processors 11th gen: codenamed- Rocket Lake series of processors will be another 14nm chip, but this time with a 20% increase in Instructions per Cycle (IPC) as the new line up will be based on the Willow Cove architecture.
The processors will be based on CPU smarts from 10th Gen Ice Lake and Xe graphics silicon from 11th Gen Tiger Lake, forming a 14nm mixture of the two 10nm parts.
Rocket Lake may pack the power to take on AMD’s Zen 3 CPUs in terms of single threaded performance, however, Intel may fall back in multi-threaded performance the Core i9 11900K will arrive with eight cores and 16 threads, which is half the amount on AMD’s 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X.
