With the release of the new Nvidia Maxwell-based GTX 970 and GTX980, a number of custom computer builders have started offering the cards in their configurations. Leveraging the new Maxwell architecture benefits like dynamic super resolution and voxel global illumination, builders including Maingear, Origin PC and Syber are selling machines in custom and pre-built configurations to those looking in the market for a new PC with the latest technology.
With the announcement from Intel during Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle this week, computer manufacturers have had to quickly adapt to the new hardware that gamers are demanding. Maingear, one of the companies represented on stage during Intel's panel, announced that it was moving into building computers with the X99 chipset and Haswell Extreme Edition processors during the show.
Maingear announced a new notebook in its Pulse last week series called the Pulse 15. Following on the design of the Pulse 17, the new 15-inch model crams many of the same components into a smaller shell. The Pulse 15 packs power into a chassis that is only 0.75 inches tall when folded, with a weight of less than four pounds. Maingear states it's the thinnest 15-inch notebook they have ever produced.
Maingear announced today the launch of the new Pulse 17 laptop, what the company calls the "world's thinnest 17-inch gaming notebook." The brushed aluminum laptop features a 2.4GHz Haswell i7 processor and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M for what the company calls "the best possible performance" in a 0.85-inch thick case.
Maingear has followed up the recently introduced 17-inch Nomad 17 gaming notebook with the smaller, 15-inch Nomad 15. Like the larger notebook, it offers an automotive-grade, hand-painted choice of lid colors. As for hardware, it includes a 1080p, anti-glare screen, a 2.3-3.3GHz Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU as standard, and 8GB of RAM.
Maingear has put a new 17-inch custom notebook up for ordering. The Nomad 17 gaming notebook aims to support its high-specification internals with a choice of six sleek "custom automotive paint jobs," a full HD 1080P matte display, multi-touch trackpad with gesture support, and dual speakers with a built-in subwoofer.
Maingear has now revealed a revamped version of its Solo 21 all-in-one PC introduced back in March. As before, it remains fully upgradeable, but there are new features and a refreshed design. In an unusual change, it also starts at less than before, with base pricing now $900 instead of the previous starting point of $1,000.
Maingear just took the wraps off an upcoming 11.6-inch notebook, the Pulse 11. According to Engadget, the small computer will be powered by the latest Ivy Bridge CPUs, with the standard model getting a Core i5 of unspecified clock speed. There is also support for up to 16GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT650M GPU with 2GB of dedicated RAM is an option.
Maingear has taken the wraps off what it is calling the worldís first upgradeable all-in-one PC. While the device is bulkier than most of its all-in-one competition, unlike its competition, the Maingear Solo 21 can be specified with a Thin Mini-ITX motherboard that will also users to upgrade to future Intel chips that will be built on a 22nm process. It centers on its namesake 1080p 21-inch monitor that can also be configured with an optional 10-point multi-touch display.
Intel brought out a swan song for its second-generation Core processors Monday by launching a new flagship mainstream processor. The Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition clocks at 3.3GHz, even with six cores, and can Turbo Boost to 3.9GHz when fewer cores are needed; as an Extreme Edition, it's designed to allow for overclocks. It sits as one of the few Sandy Bridge-E processors and adds support for quad-channel memory, giving it very high bandwidth when paired with four sticks of RAM.
