Samsung Chromebook Pro, Razer buys THX, Intel Kaby Lake leaks

Yeah, we talk about tech news here, buuut if you really want to, you could call it Netlinked Daily. I GUESS.


Razer has acquired THX, the audio company founded by George Lucas and made famous for its. Eeeeeerrrrrrrrnrnnnngggghhhhhhhhh – sound. Oh that’s called the “Deep Note” apparently, that’s easier to say. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan says his company is mainly buying THX for their brand power, which could lend legitimacy to Razer’s audio products. But it’s unlikely we’ll see THX-certified products soon, as the company will still be focusing on its core business of optimizing and certifying audio performances for quality. This is great news for Razer, but it’s also yet another of George Lucas’ creations, ripped away. I feel sorry for him.. Sometimes.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 was a complete disaster, but hey, dangnabit, if there’s one thing Samsung DOESN’t do, it’s QUIT! The company has quietly listed another device that uses a stylus – the Chromebook Pro. Say what? It’s got a 12.3 2400 by 1600 touchscreen display, a 360 degree hinge for tablet mode, and yes, a stylus they’re just calling the PEN. It’s got typical Chromebook specs, a 2GHz hexacore CPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage – but it’ll also reportedly run Android apps out of the box. Fingers crossed for NO explodey parts this time around, aheh.

And details and images of Intel’s upcoming Kaby Lake processors have spilled onto the web, thanks to Chinese leakers. The photos show a physical Core i5 7600K chip with a base clock of 3.8 GHz, as well as CPU-Z screenshots indicating this processor has multithreading support, 6MB of L3 cache and a 95W TDP. The leak also showed off an i3-7300 with multithreading, and some lower-power T models. If you want to ogle at all the juicy leaks yourself, you can head to the news sources in the description.

It’s time for!

You are absolutely right, Anthony. Nothing comes close. Except, maybe, actual food.

Thanks for your submission! If you want to see yourself in Netlinked, tweet us a clip of yourself saying Quick Bits.

More Samsung news – the company is the first to begin mass production of processors based on a 10 nanometer FinFET process – they’re mobile processors, but HA! Take that Intel.

Samsung has also launched the line of curved Quantum Dot gaming monitors that they announced in September, featuring 125 percent sRGB color accuracy, 1ms response time, 144Hz refresh rate with FreeSync over HDMI, but there’s also G-Sync versions coming soon. got their hands on information claiming that Nvidia’s GTX 1050 Ti will launch by the end of the month, at a price of 109 bucks US. CHEAP!

The RotoVR is a motorized chair for VR that looks pretty cool for vehicular games, but it’s also got touch pedals for in-game walking and rumble motors for your back and your behind. ….Nice

Rockstar is busy freaking out the internet by posting tantalizing photos that some have taken as an indication of a sequel to Red Dead Redemption. Please make it for PC this time also, thanks a lot.

And Tesla has been told by the German government they must stop calling their cars’ self-driving feature “autopilot”. Because it is not a REAL autopilot, zo STOPPEN, das ist VERBOTEN!

Let me ask you something – what is the point of being a PC gamer, if you can’t even afford the games you want to play? You can’t answer, can you. Primarily because you’re watching a pre-recorded video, and I can’t hear what you would say. Well let me answer – there isn’t one, and that’s why Intel is giving away two free games with the purchase of select Intel Core i7 processors. Specifically, Rainbow Six Siege and Warhammer End Times: Vermintide! Well how about that! Click HERE or the link in the description for all the details.
