How Much Do You Need To Build A PC That Can Compare To The Xbox One X?

With the Xbox One X launch right around the corner, it’s kinda hard not to be excited. It’s also hard not to wonder about whether the console is more powerful than your current gaming rig. So, here’s a small build that we came up with, something that may be able to compare with the upcoming console’s performance. Keeping in mind that the target performance is aimed at 4K @ 30 FPS, and assuming that the Xbox One X will cost close to INR 50,000 in India at launch, this is what we came up with. Note that the build makes a lot of sacrifices, and is mainly made with aim to get the job done, nothing too fancy.

Best Gaming Laptops Under Rs. 50,000 In India

It’s hard to believe how technology has evolved over the years. I can still remember the first time I saw a laptop, it was one of those black IBM laptops with the red button in the middle of the keyboard with which you controlled the mouse. I think that was around 1998-2000 sometime when my mum brought one of those ancient things from work and back then it was probably one of the best pieces of machinery you could get your hands on. Fast forward about 15 years and here we are now, concepts like VR are on the verge of becoming mainstream, 3D printers already finding it’s place in office spaces and Donald Trump being elected as the 45th President of America, it’s hard to believe how so much has changed in so little time. Now days what you can do on laptops people might not ...

Similar to Apple, Alienware claims the design for its new desktop has some practical benefits beyond just looking insane. Without a doubt the PC is going to cost a fortune, but it drooling for the rig is free 🙂 Since the back of the desktop isn’t perpendicular with the floor, the company says you can push the unit up against the wall without blocking its all-important ventilation. Hardcore gamers should take note that the Area-51 will ship with Intel’s newest 6- and 8-core Haswell-E processors, and it can handle up to three monster, double-wide graphics cards.

Razer showcases the World’s Most Modular PC Concept Design

There’s no need to try and reinvent the wheel, and some might argue the same applies to desktop PCs. Not Razer, a company that’s best known for its PC gaming peripherals. Razer has set out to reinvent gaming desktops with a modular PC concept that’s currently called Project Christine. The idea is to simplify the processing of setting up a PC, make future upgrades easy, and eliminate obsolescence. At a glance, the renderings look a little like Thermaltake’s Level 10 line. Project Christine takes things to another level with a modular design that makes it super simple (in theory) to swap out modules on-the-fly. The way Razer explains it, a user can slot-in additional graphics modules and add more storage by either swapping out the existing storage drives or adding more modules, all on-the-fl...
