Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo discuss gaming PCs
Dell is set to announce plans for a gaming PC that will allow users to use the mouse and keyboard simultaneously.
The company will unveil the $1,499 “Kaby Lake” gaming PC on Tuesday, according to the company’s website.
The Kaby Lake “Kaveri” will be the first Intel-powered gaming PC to use a full-fledged NVIDIA graphics chip.
The new machine will use the Nvidia Pascal GPU, which Nvidia has released a “Kabi” version of for the desktop.
Dell’s plans are for the new Kabylake “Kibera” gaming computer to be priced between $2,999 and $3,999, according the company.
The gaming PCs will also include the new NVIDIA Pascal GPU.
The GPU is a full GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, and it will be based on Pascal architecture, which has a performance increase of about 20 percent compared to Pascal in the desktop version of the GTX 10 series.
It will be powered by NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and support 8GB of memory.
The Pascal architecture also includes a new feature called “Gigaflop,” which means the graphics card will be able to render 2.5 times more graphics than a single GTX 10 GPU.
Intel has also announced that it is developing an 8-core, 64-bit version of its Core i7-6700HQ processor.
The “Kobo” gaming desktop PC will have “Kabini,” or “high performance” graphics, with a 6.2-GHz CPU and 3GB of RAM.
The Kabini will also feature Intel’s 6th generation Core i5-6500HQ chip with a 4-core CPU.
It is priced at $3.99, or $1.99 more than the Kaby lake desktop PCs.
It also has a 3.2 terabyte PCIe 3.0 memory interface, a 1TB PCIe 3 SSD and two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports.
A number of other major companies are also expected to announce their next generation gaming PCs later this year.
Nvidia will be unveiling its “Kano” gaming laptop, a new laptop with 4K gaming capabilities, at Computex later this month.
The laptops will have a base price of $4,499 and a starting price of between $4.99 and $5,999.
Lenovo is also expected at Computecamp to unveil its “Laptop Pro” laptop at the show.
Lenovo will also reveal its “Surface Pro” and “Surprise” gaming laptops, which are designed for a smaller user base, and the “Surge” gaming tablet.
Lenovo plans to reveal the “Lumia 13” and the Surface Pro 3 at ComputECamp, along with the “Acer UX31.”
