Fresh back from CES 2010, the gang attempts to recap everything seen during and after this year’s upbeat electronics expo. We start with Intel’s new mobile and desktop platforms and other interesting technologies, like the Wireless Display (WiDi) feature included in a few different Arrandale laptops. From AMD, we have both external graphics and the new, $99 Radeon HD 5670. Nvidia, meanwhile, showed its next-generation Tegra system-on-a-chip and GeForce 3D Vision Surround, a 3D gaming scheme Scott actually likes.
Other CES delights include an exciting motion-control product coming soon from Razer and EVGA’s ridiculously massive dual-Xeon motherboard, which we’re not sure will actually fit into existing PC enclosures. We also go over Asus’ new line of stylish-looking laptops, the fab behemoth that GlobalFoundries is becoming, and a bevy of new SSDs from, well, just about everybody.
