This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Choosing the best processor for PC gaming is a rather more complex proposition than it seems at first glance.

Star Wars: Jedi Challenges Review: Showing the Potential of AR Gaming

I’ve demoed a lot of smartphone-based, augmented reality (AR) headsets, and while they’ve always seemed to have potential, nothing about them was very compelling. Lenovo and Disney are working to change that this holiday season with a well-thought-out game based on Star Wars, called Jedi Challenges. There are quite a few cute AR games now, but most of them rely just on your phone’s display, so they’re hardly immersive. Star Wars: Jedi Challenges ($ 199.99) (See it on BestBuy.com) goes quite a bit beyond that. Leveraging Disney’s expertise in entertainment, and…

Wooting One Keyboard Hands On: Are Analog Switches the Future of Gaming?

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Most of the mechanical keyboards marketed as “gaming” boards don’t have many features that make them demonstrably better for gaming. That’s not the case with the Wooting One, an intriguing mechanical keyboard that was launched on Kickstarter earlier this year. It looks like a fairly standard keyboard, but the switches are an entirely new design that feature optical analog input–it’s not just on or off like other switches. The Wooting One gives you more control…

Dell’s Inspiron 7000 gaming series has been a great way to pick up a midrange laptop with the chops for gaming without paying an arm and a leg. The current 15-inch system offers a Core i5-7300HQ, a GTX 1050 Ti, 8GB of DDR4, a 1080p display, and a GTX 1050 Ti for $ 900, and we’ve seen it on sale for less than this at various points in the last year.
