CES 2015 Day One Wrap Up

/ Jan 7th, 2015 No Comments

3 Best Things CES 2016

After experiencing some pre-show activities, CES 2015 finally is officially underway in lukewarm (can you describe a city’s weather as being lukewarm?) Las Vegas. Before the show, we got a chance to check out SteelSeries products, but now that the show is in full swing, so is our coverage. Products from Kingston, Nyko, and Turtle Beach impressed us on day one.

Kingston

Located in the ballroom at Caesars Palace, the Kingston booth included a special live event. The HyperX D2L season 5 finals are being played out live, with over $50,000 at stake.

As for the action in the booth, Kingston showed off new SSDs and DDR4 memory, including the HyperX Savage SSD and HyperX Predator PCIe SSD. It is always good to see what the future is bringing, and for Kingston, the future is bringing some pretty fast read, write and boot times.

Nyko

While not the biggest booth at CES by far, Nyko is making a big stir in the gaming world with one new accessory in particular. Usually known for excellent third-party charging systems and intercoolers for consoles, Nyko surprised gamers by showing off a brand new accessory for PlayStation 4 — the PS4 Data Bank.

The Data Bank connects directly to the PS4 and allows users to plug in a hard drive for extra memory, eliminating the need to open up the console and replace the hard drive for more space. The device supports full-sized 3.5-inch SSDs, which are typically cheaper than the internal 2.5-inch hard drives. It is expected to be available sometime in quarter two of 2015 at a retail price of $39.99.

Turtle Beach

When someone mentions Turtle Beach, you probably think about gaming headsets. Well, that is no longer always the case. Turtle Beach is going out on a limb this year with a line of PC-focused products, including headsets, keyboards, mice and mousepads.

The Impact 700 — with Cherry MX Brown key switches — and Impact 500 — with Cherry Blue MX mechanical switches — gaming keyboards will be making their way to America within the next couple of months. We are curious to see how the keyboards will stack up given the cutthroat market for PC accessories, especially with major competitors starting to branch out and make their own switches.

Look for more coverage from day one and beyond at CES 2015 from Gaming Illustrated in the coming days, including a look at the Razer booth.
