PC Gamer will host E3's first-ever event all about PC gaming

PC Gamer

Year in and year out, our friends at PC Gamer would look on at the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (or E3) in Los Angeles Calif. with wanting eyes. While Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony showed off their wares with bombast, the excellent games and infinitely more powerful hardware on the PC received no such spotlight. In 2015, that changes.

Apple pushes out OS X Yosemite v10.10.3 with Wi-Fi fixes, new Photos app

Apple has unveiled the latest 10.10.3 version of its OS X Yosemite operating system for Macs, and as far as these things go, it’s a pretty big one. It’s also just in time for the new 12-inch Apple MacBook’s official release this Friday. For starters, OS X Yosemite v10.10.3 includes the new Photos app, which replaces the old and clunky iPhoto and lets you browse photos by time and location in several new views. You can also store all of your photos in iCloud Photo Library in their original format and resolution, and access them from any Apple mobile device or via

It’s no consolation to former Aperture users — or current Lightroom users for that matter — but the Photos app also introduces some pretty ingenious, consumer-level tweaking for photos based on slider adjustments, similar to what iOS 8.2 currently offers iPhone and iPad owners.

Intel’s new PCIe SSD 750 brings enterprise features to the client market

Intel has launched its new high-end PCI Express SSD, the SSD 750. The new drive will be offered in two sizes — 400GB for $389 and 1.2TB for $1,029 — and it’s designed to bring a number of new enterprise features down to the client market. Intel solid state drives have a reputation for quality, but also tend to carry much higher prices than other solutions, so one major question will be whether or not the SSD can live up to its price tag.

The 750 uses 20nm NAND from Intel and Micron — the two companies have announced their own 3D NAND efforts, but that technology is still under development. These new drives bring two new features to the client side — NVMe support and the SFF-8639 connection bracket. Here, a bit of explanation may be in order. NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory, the “e” stands for express) is a communication standard that replaces AHCI and is designed explicitly for solid state drives as opposed to being meant primarily for spinning discs. The performance benefits of NVMe are something that we’ve covered before; the interface has a number of improvements that will boost drive performance in the long run.

This 12-Year-Old Has Higher IQ Than Einstein

A 12-year-old schoolgirl has been accepted into Mensa International after learning she is more intelligent than both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. Olivia Manning, from Liverpool, succeeded to get a massive score in an IQ test of 162 - well above the 100 average. Her score is not only two points better than famous physicist Einstein and Professor Stephen Hawking, but puts her in the top one per cent of smart people in the entire world.

Researchers have achieved wireless speeds of 1 Tb per second

Researchers at the University of Surrey in England have reached 5G speeds of 1 Terabit per second (Tbps) over the distance of 100 metres in the lab - so far the fastest wireless connection to date. The 5G, or fifth generation, mobile network will ultimately replace our present 4G technology, with its reasonably poxy speeds of about 15 Mbps, and it's expected that it will revolutionize how we use our mobile devices.  It’s previously been projected that speeds of 50 Gbps could be attained on the 5G network, but now the University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) has gone and cracked those hopes. Professor Rahim Tafazolli, the administrator of 5GIC, cryptically told Dan Worth for UK technology news site V3. “We have developed 10 more breakthrough technologies and one of them means we can exceed 1Tbps wirelessly.This is the same capacity as fibre optics but we are doing it wirelessly.”

To put that into viewpoint, a US Internet provider last year rolled out the fastest home Internet ever in the Minnesotan city of Minneapolis, which reaches speeds of 10 Gbps. So this would be 100 times faster - which means you could download around 100 feature films in less than a second and stream multiple TV shows at once - all from your phone.However, we’re still a long way from showing that these speeds could be achieved in the real world. The tests were conducted in lab conditions over a distance of 100 metres, using transmitters and receivers created at the university.
