AMD's Where Gaming Begins Episode 3 stream tomorrow will introduce us all to the AMD RX 6700 XT graphics card. That's where we'll get the basic low-down on the specs and performance of the new Navi 22-based GPU ahead of launch sometime in mid-March. But, inevitably, the first thing that people are going to be asking about the new Radeon graphics card is: Am I going to be able to buy one? The second question, linked to that first, will be: What the hell are you doing about miners? The graphics card market is in a pickle at the moment, to say the least. A perfect storm of pandemic-based production and supply chain problems has mixed with a huge spike in demand from stay-at-home PC gamers and the exponential rise in the profitability of GPU-based cryptocurrency mining, all combining to create a market where it's all but impossible to bag yourself a new card at anything like MSRP. Into this both the green team, with the Nvidia RTX 3060 , and team Radeon, with the AMD RX 6700 … [Read more...] about Does AMD need to announce its own GPU hashrate limiter to combat cryptocurrency mining?

14 years after it came out, Halo 3 is getting back bling. Taking a page out of the Fortnite playbook, Halo 3 is getting a raft of new customisation options, including what are called back accessories. These new customisation options, which do not affect gameplay, are live now in the Halo: The Master Chief Collection flight (the version of the game where upcoming features are tested). Most of the currently-available back accessories are in-keeping with Spartan armour (check some of them out on Halo Waypoint ). But there are a couple standout pieces. There's the pulaski (a special hand tool used in fighting wildfires which combines an axe and an adze in one head): And, most eye-catching of all, the Sword and Board, which Halo fans will surely recognise: That's right, you can actually run around Halo 3 multiplayer with the Halo Legendary difficulty symbol strapped to your back now. What a world we live in. You can see all this back bling in action in the video below from … [Read more...] about Halo 3 is getting back bling
