LG’s ‘first gaming laptop’ has an RTX 3080 and 11th Gen Intel CPU – The Verge

LG has announced what it’s calling its “first gaming laptop,” the UltraGear 17G90Q. The 17-inch laptop is powered by a combination of an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, and can be configured with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage

The company is no stranger to making laptops, but the focus of its previous models has generally been on office productivity rather than offering a top-of-the-line gaming experience. The LG Gram 17 we reviewed earlier this year, for example, was a great lightweight work machine, but its lack of a beefy dedicated GPU meant it definitely wasn’t a gaming machine.

Four ports are hidden on the rear of the machine, including HDMI and Ethernet.

LG lists two laptops on its site equipped with Nvidia GPUs, but both have the lower-powered GTX 1650. In contrast, the RTX 3080 found inside the new UltraGear 17G90Q is the fastest GPU Nvidia currently offers for laptops. Other specs include a 1080p IPS display with a 300Hz refresh rate, a 93Wh battery, an RGB keyboard, a fingerprint sensor on the power button, and a 1080p webcam. Its casing is made from aluminum, and the laptop comes in a fetching purple gray color.

Although the LG UltraGear 17G90Q is meant for gaming, it’s still equipped with a bevy of physical ports. There are two USB-C ports (including one USB 4), two USB-A ports, a headphone jack, HDMI port, Ethernet, and there’s even a microSD card slot for good measure. Charging is handled via a dedicated DC input.

Pricing for the 17G90Q is yet to be announced, but LG says it’ll be announcing more details at CES on January 4th. It’ll be released first in the US and South Korea starting in early 2022.

N.F.L. Christmas Schedule: What to Watch For in Today’s Games – The New York Times

It’s not a misprint.

If you’re scrolling through your television listings on Christmas Day, you’ll see two N.F.L. games on the schedule, which could be a bit of a reprieve from the holiday meal and festivities (or from the slate of N.B.A. games).

One of the matchups, on paper, should be better than the other, but both games will feature high-profile stars, including Aaron Rodgers, the league’s reigning most valuable player, as well as Davante Adams, Kyler Murray, Myles Garrett and Jonathan Taylor.

Below is everything you need to know about the N.F.L.’…….

Warhammer 40,000, a tabletop game set in a dystopian fictional universe, is not new. But a pandemic-fueled frenzy for science fiction and fantasy games like Dungeons & Dragons has introduced it to a whole new group of players.

Often referred to as Warhammer 40k, the game is played on tabletop terrains with models that players assemble, modify and paint. The game itself requires a lot of arithmetic, as well…….
