Best Gadgets for Gamers in 2019
It's not obligatory to talk about how big the gaming market is. Regardless of whether you are a gamer or not, you should understand that this industry is one of the most profitable and sought-after today.
One of the features of the gaming industry is that its development goes hand in hand with scientific and technological progress. In a bid to attract more players, the developers are working hard to create new, powerful engines and stream gaming capabilities.
You may be completely indifferent to games, but you still have to admit that some of the coolest gadgets in the world are developed for gamers. And here they are, the best gadgets of 2019.
Multitasking and fast execution are the main demands of a modern gamer. But often, the most powerful processors and graphics adapters produce a fairly large amount of heat. That's why you need a high-quality cooling system. It is a must, regardless of the tasks that you use your computer for — be it video gaming, rendering, or online gambling.
Of course, Corsair LL Series LL120 RGB is not a panacea, and there are other decent cooling systems. However, we recommend you only those options that we have personally verified. The system has 120mm blades that provide a maximum airflow of 43.25 CFM. The developers also took care of noise reduction — the maximum sound level of the cooler is 24.8 dB only.
Corsair is one of the leading computer equipment manufacturers and they also did a good job in terms of design. The system has a spectacular multi-color backlight.
Virtual reality is no longer something fantastic and is now accessible to ordinary gamers. This year, Oculus released a new version of its famous Rift virtual reality system, called Oculus Rift S. Although the developers didn't disclose the true purpose of the S letter in this name, we can assume that it denotes the word Simplified. The new headset has a simpler add-in and a number of other advantages.
To configure the earlier Oculus Rift, it was required that you install 2 external infrared USB cameras. At the same time, the system often forced players to take off their helmets and adjust cameras. The Oculus Rift S resolves this problem with 5 cameras integrated into the helmet. Now, to connect to the VR game or gaming website, you only need the headset itself, the USB cable, and the cable to the DP ports.
Simplification also affected the design (worked out in cooperation with Lenovo). Now, the glasses are easier to adjust to the head of any shape. Immersion is also much smoother now. The image from external cameras can be displayed on your screen at any time using the button on the controller.
The developers also reduced the refresh rate from 90 to 80 hertz in order to lower system requirements and make the headset more accessible. Inside the glasses, there is one LCD screen that provides the high-pixel density and a sharper image.
The cost of the system is 399 US dollars.
Astro A50 headphones have already managed to become iconic. A special magnetic stand for headphones is one of its killer features. It works as a docking station, a charger, and a sound card at once. The stand provides the user with all the necessary functionality. There are optical connectors, 2 USB ports, and the AUX connector (3.5 mm). The display shows the charge level, the modes you have selected — Dolby Digital 7.1 (on/off), and which device you are using now — PC or PS4.
A50 sometimes loses its wireless connection, though once in a few hours and for a split second. Nevertheless, this is one of the tasks that Logitech will have to solve.
The headphone design is something that an ordinary gamer could dream about. The headset has a slightly cosmic design and is overloaded with elements that add to technological effectiveness. Yes, it’s not very elegant and old-school gamers may not appreciate this approach. However, one cannot but agree that the design of the headphones is ideally suited for gaming. With such a headset, you will not watch a movie or listen to a new lecture on TED, obviously. It’s for active and stormy gaming.
The headphones sit comfortably on your head without pressing into the temples. After half an hour of the game, you can even forget that you put on your headphones. Astro A50 is a recognized product in the gaming market and is very popular among gamers.
It is very difficult to review even a small number of gadgets that are worthy of the gamer’s attention in one article. The truth is that this number is so large that a fully-fledged website is needed to properly cover this topic.
As early as January 7, CES 2020 will take place. This is the key technological summit, where leading manufacturers surprise gamers with new solutions and gadgets. Therefore, hurry up to try out new concepts before they become obsolete.
