Laptops. They allow us to work and play from just about anywhere, including the office, at home, or on the road. And while notebooks come in many form factors, one thing that hasn’t changed is the silicon needed to run them, particularly the processor and the graphics cards. Here at Laptop Mag, we rigorously examine everything from design to battery life, but our biggest focus lies in the chips and their performance, whether it’s a do-it-all business laptop or a powerful gaming laptop.
That’s why Laptop Mag is pleased to announce its first annual Laptop Live. A week-long celebration of the companies that power our favorite pieces of technology with even more powerful processors and graphics cards. Each day, the staff of Laptop Mag will celebrate a different chip maker including Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Qualcomm, and ARM.
During the course of the event, you can expect exclusive reports on the latest from the biggest names in the industry, including analysis on the current state of affairs, what the future holds for each company, and interviews with top industry insiders. What’s more, the week will deliver a round up of the very best laptops in the industry, and even the best games to play with ray tracing. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for our in-depth video interviews.
So, welcome to Laptop Live!
