In just a few more weeks. Intel's Rocket Lake CPUs will blast off into the retail space, bringing with them support for PCI Express 4.0, an amenity that has been available to AMD users for around a year and a half now (starting with Zen 2, or AMD's Ryzen 3000 series). Though Intel is showing up late to the party, it plans to crash it by delivering faster storage performance through the PCIe 4.0 bus. In no uncertain terms, Intel says its "11th Gen Core desktop platform delivers up to 11 percent better PCIe Gen 4 storage performance vs the AMD Ryzen 9 5000 platform." As supposed proof of this claim, Intel benchmarked a 1TB Samsung 980 Pro SSD on two high-end systems sporting flagship CPUs from each company. On the Intel side, the testbed consisted of a Core i9 11900K CPU mated to an Asus Z590 ROG Maximus XIII Hero motherboard, along with 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. And for the AMD testbed, Intel equipped it with a Ryzen 9 5950X CPU … [Read more...] about Intel claims your PCIe 4.0 SSD will run faster on Rocket Lake than an AMD system
If you've been playing the Outriders demo since it came out last week, you may have picked up on an annoyance: loading cutscenes. The third-person looter shooter game from People Can Fly (Bulletstorm, Gears of War: Judgment) plays a short cutscene whenever you want to move to a new area. These cutscenes show everything from a character opening a door to climbing a ledge. They include a full fade to black opening before playing the cutscene, then another fade to black before you get back into the action. These cutscenes sometimes border on the hilarious. One I noticed while playing saw my character perform a dramatic jump across a broken bridge: Not sure I need a cutscene for that jump, Outriders pic.twitter.com/djZ25EyHhO — Wesley Yin-Poole (@wyp100) February 28, 2021 This content is hosted on an external platform, which will only display it if you accept targeting cookies.

Greenblatt joins Cate Blanchett (Lilith), Kevin Hart (Roland), Jamie Lee Curtis (Dr. Tannis), and Jack Black (Claptrap) in the movie based on Gearbox's shooter series.

"She has already worked with many of my close collaborators and everyone raves about her. She blew us all away in her audition, and I cannot wait to see her bring the wild, insane and unpredictable Tiny Tina to the big screen. She's going to blow up on screen like one of Tina's grenades."

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?
