Top game-changing tech innovations for 2020

In the times we currently live in, people keep expecting that technological innovations will remain constant and never static. We all expect to use the latest tech devices and there is no way to keep up with that if the technological innovations are not static. With that been said, we can say that in this new decade, we all shall be looking forward to even greater game-changing innovations to help increase productivity. 

In this new decade, we have found some very interesting tech innovations that will certainly change the game.

Apple Mac Pro

Apple confirmed that the previous Mac Pro design of 2013 had painted it into a thermal corner. Upgrade options suffered, as a result, so the company went back to the drawing board to rethink its approach. 

Apple finally launched it in December 2019, and most prosumers would agree that, despite the eye-watering entry price, the new high-throughput tower Mac delivers on its promise of offering blistering performance that can make short work of even the most demanding creative tasks.

The 'cheese grater' lattice pattern design harks back to the tower Mac Pro of old, but the internals is absolutely futuristic. The machine uses workstation-class Xeon processors with up to 28 cores with 64 PCI Express lanes, up to 1.5TB of high-performance memory, eight PCIe expansion slots, and at the high-end, dual Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs. That should be more than enough to speed up your email and web browsing. 

MSI Creator 17 Laptop 

MSI used the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 to unveil the Creator 17, which it claims is the first laptop of its kind to feature a Mini LED display. 

By adopting much smaller 2mm LEDs for the backlight, the laptop's 17-inch 4K display offers a lot more accuracy than LCD displays that use a traditional LED backlight. For creatives, that's a boon for viewing rich visual content. The tech promises high contrast and HDR using 240 local dimming zones so that it can dim the backlight behind areas of the screen that are displaying black while keeping the bright parts of the screen brightness. 

According to MSI, the Creator 17 is also capable of displaying 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut at 1,000 nits brightness, which is the standard benchmark for displaying HDR in all its glory. 

Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro

Apple's latest MacBook Pro arrived late in 2019 and is being considered by many as a blueprint for MacBooks to come over at least the next year or two. On the surface, little appears to have changed, but take a closer look and you'll notice that certain key features have been considerably improved with creative professionals in mind.

First off, Apple has slimmed down the bezels to fit a larger screen into the same laptop dimensions, so you get a 16-inch Retina display with 500 nits of brightness and a P3 wide color gamut. It's also swapped out the controversial butterfly keyboard that dogged previous models and replaced it with a much more reliable scissor-switch key mechanism. 

Sketchboard Pro for iPad artists

Inspired by the classic illustration sketch boards traditionally used in art school, the Sketchboard Pro is a form-fitted magnetic cradle for an iPad that creates a smooth, flat drawing surface around the screen, offering more comfort and support while drawing.

It can be used flat on a drawing table or propped against a desk, while the legs fold out to provide a more comfortable 20-degree incline on any flat surface in landscape or portrait orientation. 

The idea is that with your iPad nestled into the frame, you can make the most of the entire canvas of the screen when drawing, rather than having to rest your hand on other areas of the display. Not only does it promise to give you a fuller view of your art, but the makers believe it also has the potential to enhance its quality through fuller use of your arm while drawing, resulting in more flowing lines.

Microsoft Surface Studio 3

Microsoft hasn't advertised the Surface Studio 3 yet, but the lineup appears to be following a two-year upgrade cycle, and there have been some impressive advances in mobile CPU and graphics technology since the Surface Studio 2 was released in 2018.

It's too early to say which processor the Microsoft's next all-in-one PC will feature, but the very latest Intel H-series processors wouldn't go amiss.

With its innovative Gravity Hinge and radical puck input device, no one would argue that creating art on the Studio 2's 4,500 x 3,000 PixelSense touch display is an experience not offered by any other company. 

Apple Pro Display XDR

The Pro Display XDR has a 32-inch 6K Retina screen with a 6016 x 3384 resolution that packs in more than 20 million pixels, which combined offer a viewing experience that's 40 percent bigger than the Retina 5K display on a 27-inch iMac.

It also features 10-bit and P3 wide color support, 1,600 nits of peak brightness and a sustained 1,000 nits of brightness. Not only that, the monitor's aluminum enclosure features the same advanced thermal system seen on the new Mac Pro, which it connects to using a single Thunderbolt 3 cable.
