hope you enjoyed our CES coverage from Vegas yesterday,
we continue our coverage today with a look at hot
products from Thermaltake, Silverstone, Zalman,
Coolit and Creative as well as an amazing new 3d
controller called "The Falcon".
above Thermaltake were highlighting
their new range of CPU coolers with spring mounted
fans to reduce vibration and lowering the overall
noise within a system.
also showed us several replacement graphics
card coolers, the ND3 (above left) for the 7900
nVidia series of cards and the ND4 (above right)
for the 8800 nVidia boards.
again more Thermaltake products
with a great array of power supply units on display
above a Thermaltake branded iXoft
cooling pad, which is a gel based notebook cooling
pad, which lowers temperatures by absorbing heat
ffrom the bottom of the laptop. Benefits would be
the preservation of battery life and a longer lifespan
for the cooler running components within the chassis.
left Thermaltake Mozart IX, which
is a mini ITX case, DC powered with an external
power supply unit. Above right the Mozart IP, a
media center system with ipod video docking with
a built in connector for USB/charging.
demonstrating a Nvidia 8800 in a funky
looking chassis with matching keyboard. Straight
from the pits of hell... no really.
with a 3d display using polarizing glasses
and a specially filtered TFT. This will be available
in several formats and supports the nVidia stereoscopic
drivers ... each line of the panel is interleaved
with a horizontal then vertical polarized image.
This is extremely effective and works with a wide
horizontal field of view, however your eyes must
be level with the screen.
with their Zen V plus, OLED display. Reported
8 hour battery life with music, and a 2 hour life
while playing video. This unit also supports MPEG4
files along with the usual plethora of audio supported
formats. RRP will be in the $220 region for the
new product from Razer the "Deathadder
mouse", which is a 1800dpi ergonomic right
handed unit. Visions of Rowan Atkinson wearing tights
in a BBC comedy spring to mind. Surely not intentional
"Mako" 2.1 speaker system which
we had demonstrated to us. It is a 2x50w setup (satellites)
with a 100w subwoofer. This uses the table surface
as a sound stage to disperse the sound evenly around
again with their pro keyboard range, as
you can see this has a connector for an iPod and
is going to be marketed at designers with its programmable
macro keys. The design is very maclike. Continuing
their theme of minimalist white, Razer's
new bluetooth mouse (top right).
