NVIDIA Intros SHIELD Game Console, Makes GRID Cloud Service Official

After a month of anticipation, NVIDIA announced its SHIELD at GDC. Yes – “SHIELD”. Unlike the portable and tablet to come before it, the latest SHIELD is a dedicated set-top box that acts as a media player and game console. It’s an inch thick, features Tegra X1, costs $199, and includes a controller. This is the most intriguing SHIELD yet.

Evolve Review: The Evolved Strike Back

There are many different ways a developer can approach a co-op game. Straight-forward FPS? Zombie infestation? Another World War II title? None of this for Turtle Rock Studios.

ASUS X99-DELUXE

ASUS X99-DELUXE Motherboard Review

The name “DELUXE” is often used on products that don’t quite deserve it, but when it comes to ASUS’ motherboards, the company makes sure that isn’t the case. Given that, it’s little suprise that the X99-DELUXE does in fact deserve its name, as it doesn’t just offer a slew of features and capabilities, it packs in extras we wouldn’t ever expect.

2016 McLaren P1 GTR - In Action

Does anybody remember the iconic BMW M1? The M1 was a Lamborghini-designed BMW mid-engined supercar from the late 1970s. It was BMW’s attempt to enter that rarefied marketplace occupied at the time by Ferrari and its 512BB, Maserati’s Bora, and Lamborghini’s own Countach. Sadly, because of various circumstances, the M1 never really…..

2016 Audi R9 - Angle

The Audi R8 is, I have to say, one of my favorite supercars. It’s got the perfect size (lots of supercars, even the ones I like a lot, are far too big), handsome styling, and a V10 that at full howl reminds me a lot of Formula 1’s glorious “V10 era.” The fact that it has…..

Aston Martin Vulcan - Backend

Admit it. You’ve got your biases. I know I have mine, especially when it comes to cars. I’ll admit that my car enthusiast heart goes at maximum revs for Lamborghini, McLaren, and, to a lesser extent, Koenigsegg. Everyone else would just blip my throttle, so to speak. Then I heard about Aston…..
