Today, have a look at the Razer Leviathan V2 gaming soundbar kit, which comes with a slick sub, a soundbar, and a highly useful software suite. In terms of audio quality, it really blew us away.

For the second time around NVIDIA updated it's NVIDIA ForceWare 174.74 driver. This driver comes with full support for all current GeForce graphics cards from the GeForce 6, 7, 8, and 9 series and now comes with WHQL certification on 'some' Graphics cards..

The folks from ComputerBase snapped a photo of the Intel Nehalem processor die next to a 1 euro coin at the Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai. Nehalem is a codename for both a processor microarchitecture and a processor. Nehalem will be released in late 2008 for high-end chips and early 2009 for mainstream chips. The microarchitecture is being developed by Intel and is the planned successor to the Core microarchitecture. The processor is expected to debut the microarchitecture. Key features 1 through 8 (or more) cores, Integrated memory controllers supporting DDR3 SDRAM and between 1 and 4 memory channels.

Intel is already well into the development process for Nehalem. Nehalem uses the 45 nm manufacturing methods from Penryn and applies it to the new Nehalem microarchitecture.

Ehm  No, Microsoft hasn't suddenly transformed its 30-inch, multi-touch Surface into a big-ass cellphone. But it has, however, chosen AT&T to launch the world's first Surface into retail.

Shoppers in New York, Atlanta, San Antonio, and San Francisco will be treated to what amounts to the novelty (at least initially) of learning about a device (Samsung BlackJack II, pictured) by simply placing it atop the Surface. They'll also have the ability to explore interactive coverage maps. Later, users will be able to drag ringtones, graphics and video and drop it into "the phones." Note their use of "the" and not "your" phone in the press release. Nevertheless, we're happy to see Microsoft get the technology out the door on its long march towards consumerdom.

Okay let's call it, the death of the PC Games stores is near. Digital downloads are the future. This Stream news officially announces that publisher UbiSoft will expand on the number of games it offers via Valve's PC game digital download service.

PC maker Dell announced a plan to save $3 billion over the next three years by cutting costs and laying off employees. The firm will close its desktop manufacturing plant in Austin, Texas and will cut about 10 percent of its workforce: Dell Inc. is also reaffirming its plan -- announced last year -- to cut at least 8,800 jobs, or about 10 percent of its work force. In the last nine months of fiscal 2008, the Round Rock, Texas-based company cut 3,200 jobs.

The company plans a broad range of cost cuts in design, manufacturing and logistics, materials and operating expenses to stay competitive.

Dell is also reviewing alternatives for its financial services business, especially its consumer and small to medium business revolving credit financing receivables. Shares of Dell rose 31 cents to close at $19.92. They added another 28 cents to $20.20 in aftermarket activity.

Would you just take a look at that. Right on cue, Dolby and SIM2 are collaboratively showcasing a 46-inch 1080p display built around the former firm's high dynamic range technology.

The HDR-enabled LCD HDTV boasts 1,836 LED-based backlight units (designed / developed by SIM2), a full 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, brightness level greater than 4,000 cd/m2, an "infinite" contrast ratio, 16-bits of luminance and a Xilinx Virtex field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) chipset. Additionally, the prototype employs a design created by Giorgio Revoldini, and while we can't imagine hearing of a release date anytime soon, the two firms aren't wasting any time putting the new set on a world tour to presumably wow onlookers.

The prototype is a 46-inch LCD with Dolby

A updated version of Sony's PlayStation 3 console has been sent to the FCC, documents show. Any new device with wireless technology must be approved by the FCC; the Sony application notes, however, that the company has only made two minor changes, one of which is merely an adjustment to the construction of the Bluetooth module. The other is a switch to an 80GB hard drive, a boost from the presently-offered 40GB capacity. The storage should allow gamers to keep more games, music, videos and other material.

Sony has sold several different capacity options throughout the PS3's history. The console initially launched in 20 and 60GB versions, but the popularity of the 60GB model led to the 20GB edition disappearing. Both were eventually replaced by 40 and 80GB variants, the latter also having disappeared in recent months. It is unclear why Sony would introduce a second 80GB system, although Microsoft offers a 120GB model of its Xbox 360 console.

Appearantly I complete;y missed out on this one, but earlier in March at the CeBIT EVGA showcased its 17-inch wide dual display

Tomorrow on Guru3D; well, like you guys have no idea what this is eh ? ...

Thermaltake BigTyp VP is a new upgraded value pack of the famous classical air cooler Thermaltake BigTyp 120 VX. BigTyp VP not only maintained the same excellent thermal structure of the original BigTyp but added on one extra 120mm satellite fan, and thus enabled the simultaneous cooling of CPU surrounding chipsets. The satellite fan (120x120x25mm) further utilizes system air flow and cools wherever you placed it.  The 2-direction-installation option of this additional fan is for extra cooling of RAM or VGA, and this multi-positioning design also allows add-ons of additional 12cm-fan, 9cm-fan, 8cm-fan, 6cm-fan, 5cm-fan, or 4cm-fan. Rotatable fan holder enables fan installation adjustment from 0 to 45 degrees to best fit your system structure.

The proprietary soldering process enables the Thermaltake BigTyp VP to be one of the best coolers on the market. With the adjustable fan speed from 1300 to 2500rpm, and lowest sound output of 16dBA, the flexible fan operation status can be easily controlled to best fit the users got a chance to talk to Twilight producer Wyck Godfrey about the status of the proposed Gears of War video game adaptation. "We've got our script on and a director we're about to attach. We'll hopefully make that early next year for the summer of 2010," said Godfrey.

It was announced in March of 2007 that New Line Cinema (now a unit of Warner Bros.) had acquired the feature film rights to Epic Games' award-winning video game. Stuart Beattie was attached to adapt the project and Temple Hill Entertainment set to produce.

Since its debut in November 2006, "Gears of War" has broken sales records on the Microsoft Xbox 360, selling more than 4.5 million copies worldwide (it sold 3 million copies in the first 10 weeks after launch).

The game thrusts players into humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet. The story unfolds as a ragtag group of soldiers use every last ounce of strength to survive the onslaught from the forces of evil, which begins on the historic Emergence Day.

Cliff Bleszinski, the lead game designer for "Gears of Wars," worked in conjunction with Beattie to define a treatment for the film.

Bleszinski announced in February at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco that a sequel to the "Gears of War" video games is in the works and is slated for a November 2008 launch.
