Arrivano finalmente sul mercato le nuove cuffie Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage, un prodotto destinato principalmente ai giocatori, sia su piattaforma Windows che Mac. L’azienda propone questo headset in versione wireless e cablata (USB), entrambe equipaggiate con SBX Studio Pro per offrire il massimo dell’esperienza sonora in fase di gioco.
La Tactic3D Rage prevede driver da 50mm, una risposta in frequenza 20Hz/20KHz e software proprietario con interfaccia Tactic Profile per personalizzare e regolare le impostazioni a nostro piacimento. Esteticamente le cuffie sono molto curate, dotate di uno “scheletro” in acciaio e cuscinetti ricoperti in cuoio; onboard inoltre è prevista una serie di led a 16 milioni di colori che pulsano a ritmo di musica o comunque dell’audio prodotto.
Along with your first day at school, and (for the boys at least) growing your first peach fuzz mustache, many of you might also never forget your first Sound Blaster soundcard. In the present day (unless you’re blessed with youth) only the Sound Blaster can be enjoyed again, and today Creative introduces its new Z-series. The latest PCI-Express cards use the firm’s Core3D quad-core sound and voice processor and come in three variants: the Sound Blaster ZxR, the Zx and the Z. As you might have guessed, the more letters, the higher up the food chain it is. The flagship ZxR ($249.99) boasts a 127dB SNR, sockets for swappable Op-Amps, 80mW into 600 ohm headphone pre-amp, plus RCA / optical connectivity (via additional daughter board) and an external “ACM” control module for less fiddling around the back of your machine. You can save yourself $100 with the Zx model, if you don’t want the ZxR’s “DBpro” daughter board, and the Z edition saves a further $50 at the expense of the external controller.

You gotta admit that the world is ugly. Although World War II was more than 60 years ago, the world today is still filled with destruction, but in different forms such as deforestation, animal massacres and also the robbery of human rights. The good news is that when there is darkness, there is light. More and more people, and organizations, have risen up to speak out against these destructive activities and more, with public awareness ads.
Today, we want to share with you 60 creative public awareness ads that not only attract people’s attention, but also make them actually want to give the issues a thought, encouraging them to act and to fight against the imbalance of the world.
While we enjoy the creative power used to create these ads, let us also share the ads out in order to spread more awareness. By doing this, you can be the part of the solution. And most of them really need the extrah elp. Get inspired, and let’s get some work done!.
Creativity is everywhere, you just have to open your eyes and see it. Some people can see it and thankfully recreate it for the rest of us. In this article you can see a round-up of very creative photos that will make you laugh or get you thinking. We would love to hear what you think about them, so you can comment below.
Printed ads are getting better and that’s why I always search for fresh examples. As our readers know by now, writing articles about this type of advertising is on of my favorite things. Without more introduction, below you can see 40 examples of very clever ads which I found in the last week.
Creative isn’t nearly the aural force it once was, but it’s still a respected name when it comes to headsets and — gasp! — sound cards. Here at IFA, the outfit has busted out a new range of Sound Blaster (yeah, seriously) gaming headsets for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac platforms. The 360-friendly Sound Blaster Tactic360 Sigma is being revealed with a steel core headband design and 50mm audio drivers, not to mention separate voice and game audio controls. Moving right along, the Tactic360 ION slims down with a pair of 40mm drivers, while the Tactic3D Wrath Wireless caters to Mac / PC users who’d rather not sweat the whole “cable” thing. The Tactic3D Omega Wireless does likewise for console gamers, and for those infatuated with three-dee, the outfit’s new Recon3D audio platform / sound cards sound give you reason to celebrate. Full details are posted up after the break, for those who find themselves strangely intrigued.
For a motherboard, the G1 Assassin from Gigabyte sure is gaudy and actually rather interesting. First off, that Killer E2100 networking solution from Bigfoot has been integrated into the board, as has Creative’s X-Fi audio. The three-year-old X58 chipset at its heart is starting to look a little long in the tooth but, with support for three-way SLI or four-way CrossFireX, 24GB of RAM, and Intel’s Extreme Edition processors, you probably won’t miss Sandy Bridge too much. Starting at around $450 the Assassin isn’t for everyone, but hardcore gamers determined to squeeze every ounce of performance from of their setup will not be disappointed. The one unfortunate fault of the G1 is timing — the next-gen of high-end performance parts from Chipzilla are right around the corner. Though, that banana clip-shaped heat sink has to count for something. We know you like benchmarks, so check out the reviews below.
When Logitech and Microsoft released a bunch of HD webcams last year, Skype refused to certify them for use with its HD video calling service. (That’s not to say these webcams won’t work with Skype HD — it’s that Skype won’t guarantee that they’ll work well.) And why this resounding slap in the face? Because Skype will only certify HD webcams that come with onboard video processing and therefore run even on tardy old machines. And that is precisely why Creative has followed the lead of other manufacturers like FaceVsion and Freetalk in including a built-in H.264 encoder with its latest offering, maintaining judder-free video and a chill-axed CPU. The webcam also has more flexible autofocus and a “quad mic” system, which together should allow users to sit as far as 10 feet away and still be seen and heard clearly. The only problem? A $150 price tag that’s significantly more than the competition and only slightly easier to face than your cousin’s acne condition at 720p. If you’re still keen though, check out the PR after the break.
