The first day of CES 2023 was action-packed. Not only have we seen a slew of new laptop announcements, but we’ve got his new Nvidia graphics card and already hands-on what could be the best TV of the year.
A press preview is underway, but CES hasn’t officially started yet, so there’s a lot more to come. But here are what we feel are the best and most exciting offerings from day one of CES 2023:
18 inch gaming laptop
Over the past few years, gaming laptops have gotten slimmer and lighter. This trend seems to be breaking as Alienware, Asus and Acer have all announced gaming laptops with 18-inch displays.
Why is this exciting? Not only do they feature the latest Intel Raptor Lake chips and his Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series graphics, but they also have super-fast high-refresh-rate displays, so the specs on these machines are pretty impressive. Sure, we’ve seen high-spec laptops before, but the combination of components, cooling, and ports all make these laptops decent desktop gaming PCs without sacrificing portability. It is set as a substitute for
And for the specs on offer, the prices for each of these big laptops seem pretty reasonable considering high-spec gaming PCs aren’t cheap. , is expected to be a notable gaming laptop this year. In the meantime, check out our hands-on review of the Alienware m18.
LG C3 OLED
At CES, we had the chance to get hands-on with the new LG C3 OLED and LG G3 OLED TVs. And while the latter may be a more premium TV, the former is the one to watch.
LG C2 OLED buyers won’t see any major upgrades, but the C3 will offer a new processor, significantly improved brightness, an updated WebOS platform, and a better and more customized experience for viewers. should be provided.
This may not seem like a big deal, and for LG C1 OLED or C2 owners, these updates won’t be enough to warrant an upgrade. , this has all the hallmarks of a good LG OLED TV, so it could be a TV to watch, and looking at previous models, we can expect a price drop in the second half of 2023.
Nvidia GerForce RTX 4070 Ti
CES is just getting started, but Nvidia has already announced the RTX 4070 Ti. In many ways, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is just a scaled-down version of the GeForce RTX 4080. However, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is priced at $799, which isn’t cheap by any means, but is at least affordable for PC gamers.
The problem here, however, is that we’ll likely see more GeForce RTX 40-series cards following in the RTX 4070 Ti’s footsteps, bringing to market a decently-specified GPU that fits within the average gamer’s budget. So expect to see his affordable GeForce RTX 4060 in the near future.
Samsung QN95C Neo QLED TV
With some attractive upgrades like 144Hz refresh rate support and automatic HDR remastering all packed into a sleek design, the Samsung QN95C Neo QLED is probably the most anticipated 4K QLED TV this year.
Saw it in glass and metal and was impressed with its image quality and the One Connect box that offloads the input to another unit and allows for flexibility in installation and usage. So the same as the LG C3 OLED As such, this Samsung QLED TV could be the focus of attention this year.
Acer Swift Go
Right now, the MacBook Air M2 is arguably the laptop you can get when it comes to ultraportables, but Acer’s new Swift Go series could justify its price tag. With the latest Intel chip and OLED display, the Swift Go is an attractive laptop with solid specs.
Available in both 14-inch and 16-inch models, the Swift Go is also competitively priced, starting at $799 (about £663/A$1,164), making it the MacBook Air M2 as well as other slim models like Microsoft. Cheaper than a decent laptop. Surface Laptop 5. We’ll have to see if reaching an attractive price point forced Acer to make some unfortunate compromises. If you can successfully blend a reasonable price into one package, it could be a first contender for the best laptops list.
We haven’t seen this one yet, but Samsung’s display arm showed off the Flex Hybrid. Flex Hybrid is a smart device with a folding and sliding screen that expands the 10.5-inch display with a 4:3 aspect ratio to 16. 10 12.4 inch screen. We don’t expect foldable devices this year, but it does hint at the direction that foldable phones and tablets might take.
Alienware also showed off a 500Hz monitor. It is aimed at esports players who need ultra-fast response times. Check out Tony Polanco’s hands-on review of his Alienware 500Hz Gaming Monitor (AW2524H) for his thoughts.
