- Hey, See the top 6 Best Gaming Accessories that every gamer must have to increase productivity.
- so CES 2022, or the consumer electronics show 2022, has actually been going down, believe it or not, and it’s given us a bunch of stuff in the gaming world. We’ve got a roundup here of everything new and gaming-related you need to know about, so let’s just jump in.
We got 6 things,
One of the bigger things, obviously, NVIDIA had a very dominating presence here. They announced the kind of high-end, gaming laptop-focused RTX 3070 TI and RTX 3080 TI. This is a high-end card and essentially an upper-midrange card.
And laptop gaming technology has come a long way. The days of the big, bulky, nasty power-hungry machines are going away.
I mean, they’re still power-hungry, but they’re way less bulky and a bit more efficient and user-friendly.
These new cards definitely pave the way for that to continue to be a thing. As of right now, specs-wise, we just know that they’re aiming for 120 frames per second at 1440p. That is specifically the 3080 TI, whereas the 3070 TI has been said To push 100 frames per second at 1440p. It is estimated to have eight gigabytes of vram because we know officially that the 3080 has 16 gigs ofGDDR6 vram.

So expect these chips to start showing up soon in the typical gaming laptop partners that they have:
MSI, Razor, Alienware, stuffs like that.
There’s a lot more to talk about NVIDIA. We’ll highlight more later in this article, but let’s move on.
some other new pc hardware we got is a keyboard from ROG or Republic Of Gamers. This is Asus’s gaming brand.
The Strix flare II animate is a mechanical keyboard that does all your usual gaming mechanical keyboard stuff, but this one has an led display in the corner.
you might be wondering this display is for. Well, it can show system info like time, date, battery life. It can also display animations and logos. So not too much. And this hit headlines, but it isn’t exactly new to the keyboard game anyway.
There have been a few enthusiast boards that have had led screens on board in the past that show the same kind of info, except they aren’t the size of this display. Think of something more in line with the screen on a calculator.
But it gets the job done. It also, this thing, has media controls and RGB, like other gaming keyboards, and it also has a wrist rest
with a diffuser built in to show off your RGB. There’s always one big, new shining piece of gaming hardware at CES, and this is one of them this year.
Oh, and along with that, speaking of nice things, I feel like we’ve got to mention project Sophia. This is razer’s next big thing, and by that, i mean, every so often, they come out with these new product ideas that never really hit the mainstream market.
They’re more crazy, over-the-top prototypes. We never know which way they’re gonna go.
But project sophia is essentially being billed the world’s first modular gaming desk concept, and it’s pretty sweet.
It’s a really sleek, simple table, but with all this stuff that is completely modular and changeable.
All these modules allow you to do different things: monitor your system, shortcuts, lighting everything with a beautiful screen. It’s really over the top, but hopefully, this starts to be the gaming desk of the future. Who knows?

The newest Ayaneo has been revealed. It’s called the next. Now, we’ve kind of known about this a little bit, but for those of you that don’t know, the Ayaneo is essentially like a steam deck, but it was before the steam deck. So this is a handheld device
in a Nintendo switch-like body that packs some pretty beefy specs, and it runs windows, and it lets you play your pc games, whether you play on steam, epic, whatever.
We’ve tested this device in the past, and the potential seems cool. It’s a little unwieldy, but our unit broke. Still, some people have
been enjoying these devices. Of course, if you have the expendable cash, these are usually upwards of $1,000.
And the new AYANEO next is going to have an AMD Ryzen 7 5800. It’s gonna have 32 GBs of ram, and there are multiple skews of this thing with little differences, the AYANEO next, the AYANEO next advance, the advance signature edition, and the pro.
These things haven’t completely taken off yet, probably because of their pretty high price, but full pc gaming on the go without streaming is becoming more of a thing. So keep your eyes on it.

3) ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000
Asus announced the new rog gaming router, but it’s actually pretty exciting. It’s technically the world’s first quad-band wifi 6e gaming-focused router. Now, we’ve had these types of routers before, but this one is marketed specifically towards gamers. So what essentially this is, is a beefy, badass wifi router with a ton of different bands.
It has a 2.4 GHz to 5 GHz and a 6 GHz band, and it’s using the latest wifi tech. It’s got everything you need, and it’s probably gonna be a beast. It’s also gonna cost $650 i.e approx, so good luck with that one.

2) Samsung Odyssey Ark Monitor
Samsung loves to really push the limits with their tech, especially with their screens, and their new Samsung Odyssey Ark Monitor definitely does that. This curved display is 55 inches with a 16-by-9 aspect ratio and a 4k resolution.
And yeah, you’re looking at this. This is ridiculous. You can also turn it on its side, and you can use it vertically, and it literally towers over you. Previews seem to show that you don’t ruin the integrity of the content you’re playing or watching when using the monitor vertically.
It also features a wireless dial controller that you can use to manage the monitor. This is definitely overkill, but sometimes overkill is awesome. Sometimes with tech at CES, it’s a little over the top. But we love ultrawide displays here for both gaming and everyday use, like for work, and this thing seems like a dream to use.

1) Archie RTX 3050 GPU
Jumping back to NVIDIA, NVIDIA announced the Archie RTX 3050 GPU. This is a discrete graphics card. It’s gonna have 8 GB of gddr6 vram, and it technically will support dlss and ray tracing. Now, to what extent, probably not a lot, because this is a budget card.
It’s actually a pretty damn good price, 250 bucks, making it in the realm of affordability for some low-budget builds while actually getting something decent. That being said, with chipset availability and shortages and everything like that and scalpers, good luck getting this thing
soon and for that price.
But along with that, of course, AMD also announced their own smaller-scale graphics card, a discrete card that’s gonna cost $200.
The radeon rx 6500 xt has come out this january, and it’s gonna be really affordable if you can get your hands on it. Still, we think, over time, this competition, this everybody trying to get the most power for the least amount of money, is probably gonna be good for the consumer, especially the novice builder who wants a pc, but doesn’t want to spend a ton of money.
Even though we were being a little cynical, it’s definitely a step in the right direction. This is good stuff.
