Sony X900C Ultra-thin 4K Television

We wrote earlier about some affordable 4K FreeSync monitors from Samsung, so let’s talk a bit about some pricier models from Sony. On account of the fact that the X900C and X910C are full-fledged televisions and come in at under 0.2 inches thick, it’s not hard to understand why Sony’s latest 4K…..

Samsung U28E590D 28-inch 4K FreeSync Monitor

It’s kind of impressive just how fast 4K resolution has infiltrated the market, and likewise, how fast the tech has become affordable. Just two summers ago, ASUS released its 31.5-inch PQ321 4K monitor. Its price? $3,800. Today, spending 20% of that will get you an awesome 4K monitor, but there are a…..

Windows 10 Upgrade Prompt

Microsoft’s Gabe Aul has answered some important questions regarding the roll out of Windows 10, and if you happen to be a user of an illegitimate license of Windows 7 or 8, or are still stuck on XP, take note. While Microsoft insists that a genuine license of Windows 7 or 8…..

AMD Radeon Fury X Graphics Card - Side View

AMD intended to wait until next week before letting the juiciest bits of Fury X loose, but due to some communication errors, some people jumped embargo. Thus, AMD has decided to lift the veil off of its reviewers’ guide and is letting editors publish any and all details found within its pages.…..

Short, But Powerful: Dual-GPU Radeon Fury Card Spotted

AMD Radeon Dual Fury Graphics Card

We learned just earlier that AMD’s Radeon ‘Fury’ graphics cards should pack quite a punch, with the top-end Fury X able to butt heads with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX TITAN X. It’s fun to note, then, that AMD already has plans to release a dual-GPU graphics card this fall. Normally, neither AMD or…..

AMD High Bandwidth Memory Chips

At its much-anticipated ‘New Era Of PC Gaming’ event, AMD put an end to all of the rumors we’ve had to endure these past few months. While much of what we learned was expected, AMD did have a couple of neat tricks up its sleeves. Kicking off its series of announcements, AMD…..

Shenmue 3

Is it just me, or is this E3 proving to be one of the best ever? From Microsoft adding backwards compatibility to its Xbox One to Bethesda announcing the latest DOOM to Final Fantasy VII finally getting a remake – it’s almost hard to take it all in. And as if it…..

Fallout 4 PC Box

Following up to its announcement of Fallout 4 a couple of weeks ago, Bethesda’s taken advantage of E3 to give us a lot more information on the game, including a release date. That release date is November 10, 2015, so those who were worried that they’d have to wait an entire year…..

Doom (2016) Poster

When Techgage launched in early 2005, the hottest and most demanding PC game at the time was DOOM 3, which had just come out six or so months earlier. I still vividly remember just how gorgeous the game was at the time, and being in awe at the fact that a 512MB…..

Microsoft: Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility Coming To Xbox One Later This Year

Posted on June 15, 2015 1:49 PM by Rob Williams
Microsoft Xbox One

Microsoft has been making a number of great announcements at E3, but the one that strikes me as being the most notable is that the Xbox One will be gaining backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 titles later this year. Unfortunately, original Xbox titles are unsupported, but that’s not too surprising. . @XboxP3…..

FTC Tackles Its First Crowdfunding Case, But With Pointless Results

The Doom That Came To Atlantic City Board Game

When board game The Doom That Came To Atlantic City hit Kickstarter in 2012, the project’s lead hoped to secure $35,000 in funding to make it happen. With its wonderful design and creators on-board with some serious clout, backers ended up funding it three-and-a-half times over. With the project’s wallet $122K fuller,…..

Eurocom M4 Notebook - Front View

Eurocom makes some of the beefiest, most bad ass notebooks around, and I wouldn’t blame you if you thought it was impossible for the company to produce something a bit more modest. Well, it can, and today we see an example of that with the M4 ultraportable notebook, one that happens to…..

Twitter's Dick Costolo

Twitter’s Dick Costolo has announced that he’ll be stepping down from his post as CEO next month. This move isn’t too surprising, as Twitter has suffered stagnant growth, but while it’s speculated that he could have been ousted, Costolo claims that this move has been in the works for a while. “I…..

Microsoft Begins Classifying Ask Toolbar As Malware (Updated)

Java Ask Toolbar Offer

As if needing Java isn’t bad enough, it’s frustrated users for so long because every single freaking update tries to install Ask toolbar on your PC. It’s a nuisance, and if there’s a single person on our Earth that actually wants it, I’d be hugely surprised. Well, it seems that Microsoft agrees, as…..

Logitech G920 Driving Force Wheel

The Xbox One has no shortage of racing titles (Forza Motorsport, Codemasters’ F1 20xx games), but the platform hasn’t had a lot of options as far as racing wheel controllers are concerned. Certainly, there has been nothing available if you’re a Logitech loyalist. Well, you can say we’ve turned the corner. Logitech has…..

BitFenix was plenty busy during last week’s Computex in Taipei, showing off a gaggle of PC chassis and accessories to visitors. First up is the Pandora ATX. The company has actually used the Pandora moniker for one of its existing chassis. Whereas the original is strictly for mATX/mini-ITX systems, the Pandora ATX can…..

Futuremark VRMARK

Futuremark has announced that it will be adding VRMark to its fleet of benchmarks at some point this year. It doesn’t take much imagination to understand what this tool’s goals will be, but what can’t be understated is just how important it could become. I’d wager it’ll be even more important than…..

We can’t go a day without hearing about 4K content, but despite that, there’s just not that much 4K content out there. The situation is a bit better on the TV, as some services, such as Netflix, allow you to stream some content in Ultra HD, but on the computer? We’re mostly…..

Steam Controller & Link Sold Out

In an email sent to the press, Valve gives details on a couple of things surrounding its upcoming Steam hardware. For starters, the company says that 35% of its “get it early” pre-order hardware has been sold. It’s not giving exact numbers, so it’s hard to say whether or not this is…..

Just Like That, Tesla More Than Doubles The Output Of Its Powerwall

Tesla Powerwall Units

Tesla unveiled its much-anticipated Powerwall at the end of April to much fanfare, and in its first week of being available for pre-order, 38,000 people jumped on it. Given it was just announced a month ago, I think it’s safe to call the product a “success”, especially given what it is. But,…..

Microsoft Surface Hub - Destined For The Boardroom

Microsoft’s Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 are cool products, but neither can compete to Redmond’s latest in terms of sheer epicness: The 55- and 84-inch Surface “Hub”, which costs up to $20,000. While the regular Surface products are destined for consumers and businesses like, the Surface Hub is targeted at boardrooms, where…..

Netflix’s CEO Credits Piracy For Success Of Company’s Service

Netflix Logo (White)

It’s not often we see the CEOs of major companies give piracy credit for helping their business, but Netflix’s Reed Hastings strikes me as an atypical CEO – in a good way. In a recent Spanish interview, Hastings admits that piracy helped get people ready for his company’s service, because torrenting and…..

Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus

Logitech has just announced an update to its popular K400 living room keyboard, and it looks so good for its $40 SRP, it makes you wonder how the company plans to sell any more of its $100 K830s (which we took a look at last summer). Mimicking the basic design cues of…..
