Though,totally explained in the video with reasons which i find somewhat true, still,it’s going to be a shame not having a single player campaign to peak your gaming interest.The Titanfall multi-player would definitely be a very interesting game and would be even more interesting if it comes out with PC”LAN play”[so you can play with friends when you are close to them rather than the internet for pc gamers].
NVIDIA have gradually been lowering the base pricing for its desktop GeForce 700 series, but only a few outside of the hardcore gamer set would say the $399 GTX 770 was affordable[too freaking expensive]. Continue reading

One of the many liquid-cooled PCs showcased at Computex.
TAIPEI — The CPUs in most computers are usually cooled using a combination of fans and heatsinks. PC enthusiasts have gone one step further by using liquid cooling as shown in the rig above.

In what has become an annual ritual, the higher-end segment of Intel’s new generation of processors has been launched at the Computex trade show in Taipei. This includes the quad-core versions of what Intel calls the fourth-generation Core i-series, which was until recently known by the code name “Haswell,” and was extensively previewed at CES 2013.
Quad-core CPUs are generally found in higher-end desktops and laptops, and are part of Intel’s i7 CPU line. Most mainstream PCs use Core i3 and i5 dual-core CPUs — the Haswell versions of those are coming later.
For laptop and desktop shoppers, this means some PCs you buy over this summer and beyond will include the fourth-gen chips, although the new parts retain the same Core i3/i5/i7 series names as the previous generations. Adding to the potential confusion, current-gen (and even last-gen) Intel CPUs are more than powerful enough for everyday use, such as Web surfing, HD video playback, social networking, office tasks, and e-mail — so you’re right to ask what the motivation to upgrade is right?

Jen-Hsun Huang said during the company’s fiscal first quarter conference call that:”A great tablet is clearly better than a cheap PC”.Although a bit controversial,but you’ll have to agree with the fact that Tablets today are beginning to function much better than PC’s with low-end specs,and backing up this idea will be Android, as Nvidia are looking forward to integrating the new pro Android Tablets with their new Tegra 4 chip.
This clearly states that there is a possibility that PC’s with low level performances could actually be replaced with Tablets and to support this point..recent studies have shown the decline in Pc sales and increase in that of Tablets[especially because of the “failed Windows 8” Pc sales worldwide].
Furthermore,Nvidia are looking forward to a new variant in their Tegra 4 chip,the Tegra 4i.Here are some similarities and differences between them. Continue reading
