What's the most intriguing, though, is the 51m area of the entire PC industry. Ever since the debut of the MacBook Air, everyone has been rushing to deliver sealed unibody designs that look great, but are typically hard to disassemble and upgrade. Alienware is hearkening back to one of the core aspects of PC gaming: the ability to customize and upgrade to your heart's content. Admittedly, the ROG Mothership looks less than 51m, but it's a beautiful beast. When it's closed, it looks like a typical ASUS gaming machine. But upon opening it, a kickstand pops out from behind. And when you lower the keyboard, you can pull it away to use wirelessly. All of the hardware is behind the display, just as it would be on an all-in-one PC. I'll admit, the ROG Mothership looks and who wants to make a little difference between their screens and input devices, or those who want to swap out their keyboard for a mechanical model on a whim feels imposing. It weighs over 10 pounds and feels like a tank in your hands. But its flexibility could be a laptop-like experience at LAN parties and esports events. Microsoft's Surface machines, it's a unique spin on a pre-existing PC concept.It did not spend much time with the Acer Predator Triton 900, but it's certainly attention grabbing. It lets you rotate the screen in four different orientations, similar to what you would expect from a convertible PC, except on a gaming machine. At $ 4,000, the Triton 900 is a tough sell – and I can not imagine it. But it's intriguing, nevertheless. Powering all of these machines is NVIDIA's RTX 20-series graphics, which thus provides entirely new features like real-time ray tracing. Like the previous generation, there are "Max-Q" designs to help these GPUs fit into thinner notebooks. But what's really interesting this year is that all of the unique machines are not relying on Max-Q chips at all, so you can expect laptops to run faster. Decent gaming performance, but it's nice to see that it's not all PC games are using them for. Some casual gamers may have some intriguing new options this year. AMD just announced its next generation Ryzen mobile CPUs, which include Vega GPUs, and Intel's upcoming 10nm chips will feature integrated graphics with over a teraflop worth of performance. We do not know how well Intel's new tech wants to work out, but we've seen it running Tekken 7 on a very thin PC. Basically, there's a good chance you'll be able to play some basic gaming on your next ultraportable. So where do we go from here? I would not be surprised if more PC makers tried to tap into the potential of laptop gaming. With NVIDIA's GPUs, they're all more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Perhaps we'll see a resurgence of docks that let you plug in laptops to TVs easily (and hopefully they'll be better than MSI's GPU). " powered dock from 2014). It might as well be a slide in a laptop as easily as a Nintendo Switch.
