vissles-m portable screen has infinite uses for wfh gamers

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

You will never run out of ways to use the Vissles-M portable screen, a mind-boggling mashup of a touchscreen tablet with a high-resolution monitor that weighs less than two pounds and encourages experimentation. Because it uses both mini HDMI and USB-C, you’d be hard-pressed to find an electronic device you can’t connect it to. It functions as a second or even third screen for any computer, but the highly mobile device also works with gaming consoles — even next-gen devices like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The Vissles-M can also essentially become a 15.6-inch tablet capable of 1080*1920 resolution when you plug it directly into an Android phone with a USB-C wire.It’s mind-boggling how many different ways you can use it.Arguably the most unique use case for the Vissles-M is how well it works with Androids.VisslesWhat’s great about Vissles-MTouch-screen functionality for Windows and AndroidCan theoretically connect to almost any electronic deviceWorks incredibly well with the Nintendo SwitchSetting up the Vissles-M for the first time is an eye-opening experience about the merits of the ubiquitous USB-C.

Origin Millennium Gaming PC review

origin millennium gaming pc review

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Two-minute reviewSome PC gamers go for the most popular pre-built gaming PCs out there while others build their own, filling their machines with the best PC components their budget can afford. For those in between, there’s the Origin Millennium.Origin is known for highly customized builds, allowing gamers to customize their own gaming PCs without actually putting in the work (or needing the knowledge and skill to do so). There’s certainly a huge market for them. After all, not everyone will know which motherboard goes with what CPU. (Image credit: Future)The Origin Millennium gaming PC is not only highly customizable, from the chassis’ side panels all the way to motherboard’s orientation. It’s also easily expandable – you know, in the rare case that you need more than eight SSDs in the mid-sized tower that you bought or need more cooling power. That makes this machine incredibly future-proof as well.Origin has made the Origin Millennium so that you never have to buy another gaming PC again in the foreseeable future. That is, until you’ve grown bored of the chassis you already have.Just be prepared to spend a hefty sum. Even at the Origin Millennium’ …

SteelSeries’ new Aerox 3 gaming mice are lightweight and water-resistant

steelseries’ new aerox 3 gaming mice are lightweight and water-resistant

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

SteelSeries’ new Aerox gaming mouse lineup marks a few firsts for the company. It claims both its $60 Aerox 3 wired mouse and the $100 wireless version that will be available on November 10th are the first gaming mice to receive an IP54 rating, giving them a fighting chance against water and dust.
They’re also the company’s first mice to adopt the ever-popular honeycomb shell design, popularized by more niche peripheral makers like Finalmouse and Glorious PC Gaming Race, to name a couple of examples. And with that see-through design, they’re aimed at people who want a lightweight mouse. The Aerox 3 Wireless weighs 66 grams, while the wired version weighs 57 grams (minus the weight of the cable).
For the wireless Aerox 3, it’s SteelSeries’ first mouse to connect via USB-C to recharge, too, which marks a welcome update. Only a few major gaming peripheral companies have started shifting away from Micro USB to USB-C charging in earnest, and I’m happy to see SteelSeries finally take a step toward integrating the less cumbersome, faster charging standard in its products. This mouse includes a USB-C wireless adapter as well as a braided cable to use while it charges.

These changes are exciting, …

Major improvement for Windows gaming on Linux expected next year

major improvement for windows gaming on linux expected next year

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Gaming on Linux systems could be about to get a lot more inclusive thanks to the work of one open-source company.Headquartered in Cambridge, Collabora specializes in open source consultancy and development. The company has been working to improve the Linux kernel to better support gaming on the behest of Valve, who has been sponsoring the work. While gaming on Linux has made major positive strides in the last few years, a vast majority of games still continue to be developed exclusively for Windows. Valve’s approach to bring this Windows-only gaming ecosystem to Linux is through emulation.To that end it has developed an open source tool called Proton (forked from the open source Wine compatibility layer), which allows Windows-only games to run atop Linux, without any noticeable performance penalties.Major milestoneSpeaking at the recent Open Source Summit, Europe 2020, being held virtually for the first time, Gabriel Krisman Bertazi from Collabora talked about the “State of Linux Gaming”. During his presentation Gabriel talked about all the work Collabora has been doing to fulfill Valve’s requirements to further improve support for Windows games on Linux with Steam Play (via Proton). One of the big missing pieces of the puzzle is …

AMD

For the first time, AMD aggressively targets 4K gaming with its top-end PC graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT; the company has typically stuck to the middle and lower end of the spectrum, with its previous-generation RX 5700 XT designed for 1440p play. All the new cards incorporate the RDNA 2.0  architecture that’s in its GPUs for the upcoming Xbox Series X and S and PS5 consoles and directly take on the new Ampere-architecture GeForce RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 recently launched by Nvidia. The difference — and the caveat — this go-round is that the GPUs have been optimized so that they achieve peak performance when used in conjunction with the company’s new Ryzen 5000 series of desktop CPUs.

Online gaming class a big hit for local school – WS Chronicle

online gaming class a big hit for local school – ws chronicle

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Video games used to be just child’s play. Now they are big business not only for the developers, but also for the players. Recognizing their relevance in education, Winston-Salem Christian School has brought a STEM program to their school for their students to enhance their skills.

The program focuses on gaming concepts and Esports, which is an industry that has really taken off in the last decade. Jordan Leak has been a fan of gaming since he picked up his PlayStation 2 for the first time and is now playing competitively.  

“Esports is basically competitive gaming, and I teach a gaming concepts course,” he said. “I teach them basic motor skills of how to use the controller and how to play a game. We go step by step and I give them a walkthrough of everything and show them pretty much how to play the game and take care of yourself while you’re playing.”

Leak says he was approached by the school about the course and he was honored he was selected as their candidate. Leak says his passion for playing and teaching others about video games was a major factor in him being offered the position.
