Nearly two years after PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds arrived and rocked the battle royale scene’s world, one of its producers has now talked about some questions that initially hovered over its development, calling the game “almost a reckless attempt” and something of a “risk.”
File this squarely in the apocryphal rumour category, but there is sudden speculation today the upcoming AMD RX 5600 XT is based on the red team’s second-gen RDNA 2.0 platform and will be using the Navi 21 GPU at its heart. The rumour has come the place where all modern graphics card rumour-mongering now originates – namely a handful of regular Twitter-based tech leakers.
Watch AMD’s CES 2020 press conference livestream from Las Vegas right here… or even just catch up later through the magic of on-demand video. What a wonderful world is the future. We know there’ll be Ryzen 4000 APUs on show, kicking off a whole generation of AMD-based laptops, and we’re pretty confident there’ll be at least one new graphics card lighting up the Mandalay Bay conference room – the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT. But Dr. Lisa Su’s surely going to have at least “one more thing…” up her sleeve.
Intel has teased its Ghost Canyon NUC mini PC, or Intel NUC 9 Extreme Kit as it’s hereafter to be known. This five litre barebones rig has been smartly-designed to accommodate the best graphics cards, up to a Core i9 processor, and a “compute element for CPU upgrades,” so you needn’t sacrifice gaming prowess in the name of space-saving any longer.
Intel is promising to match the core count and clock speed of its top 9th Gen Coffee Lake mobile processor, the Core i9 9980HK, across its 10th Gen Comet Lake H-series Core i7 and i9 lineup.
Asus has announced the ROG Swift 360Hz G-Sync Monitor, the first competitive gaming screen of its kind built around Nvidia’s new R4 G-Sync module. Packing high rapid refresh rates synced up to your graphics card’s frame buffer, this gaming monitor will be available “later this year.” And here’s hoping that will actually happen.
Excuse the hyperbole, but Asus’ ROG Swift PG32UQX gaming monitor is capable of matching the newly-introduced DisplayHDR 1400 standard. Plenty enough to make any game visuals pop (and hopefully not your eyes, too).
