Razer Edge formally known as Project Fiona

Good news for those who have been on the ‘edge’ of their seats waiting for the arrival of Razer’s Project Fiona: the gaming tablet/laptop hybrid all set for arrival in Q1 in the US.
The Razer Edge and the Razer Edge Pro are been fully fleshed out at CES 2013, the former priced at a relatively reasonable-sounding $999 (c£620) and packing a Core i5, discrete Nvidia GT 640M GPU, 4 gigs of RAM and a 64GB SSD.
The Pro version starts at $1299 (£810) with Core i7, discrete Nvidia GT 640M GPU, 8 gigs of RAM and 128GB SSD (or add some cash for a 256GB version).

nvidia project shield

Another piece of hardware to get excited about is Nvidia Project shield, The console is bigger than an Xbox controller but smaller than the Wii U’s game-pad.

Its screen resolution is 720p, but the machine is capable of playing out games and video in the 4k standard – which offers eight times the detail – on compatible TVs via an HDMI cable.

At its heart is the firm’s new quad-core Tegra 4 chip – which Mr Huang described as the fastest mobile processor on the market.

More details to come.

Microsoft rumoured to be working on Xbox Surface, a 7-inch tablet designed specifically for gaming

Microsoft is said to be working on its own 7-inch tablet, but unlike the iPad mini, it’ll be focussed on gaming.

Sources familiar with the plans have confirmed to The Verge that the Xbox Surface tablet is on the way.

Specs for the tablet leaked back in June. The sources have confirmed that they’re correct and that Microsoft is working on the final implementation now.

So the Xbox Surface should run on a custom ARM processor and high-bandwidth RAM designed for gaming. But these specs could change to make way for an as-yet unannounced Intel SoC.

The Xbox Surface won’t run a full version of Windows, but a custom Windows Kernel, much like the Amazon Kindle Fire does with Android.

It should have some functions of a normal tablet, but the focus will be very much on gaming.

The Xbox Surface should be manufactured in the same factory as other Microsoft products, but separate from the companies that usually put together its devices. Any fully-fledged next-gen console, like the rumoured Xbox 720, should be made by Pegatron or Foxconn as usual.

Microsoft is said to be developing the Xbox Surface at its Silicon Valley offices. It recently locked down some Xbox-related buildings there, hinting it was testing some new gaming hardware. Other parts of the Xbox team are likely to be experimenting with making games and software for it.

The device is expected to be announced ahead of the Xbox 720, so hopefully it won’t be too long before we see if these rumours are on the money.

Powerline adapters

Powerline adapters are becoming very popular and today I have been trying the zyxel 500mbps and they are pretty good. What I really like is how small they are compared to other brands.


This could be good
