The Nvidia GTX 1060 has been very popular with budget gamers and it is the most bought card in the 10 series. The Nvidia GTX 1160 should have similar pricing and will target the same people. One of the major selling points of the next generation graphics cards is the support for ray tracing but it seems that the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1160 might not support real-time Ray Tracing. AdoredTV talked about how Nvidia is going to rebrand the upcoming next generation 1180 and 1170. They will not be under the GTX branding but under the RTX branding. This is what Nvidia uses to signify Ray Tracing. It is interesting to note that while the top tier models are being rebranded as the RTX 1180 and RTX 1170, the mid-range and entry-level models still use the GX branding. It is possible that the support for ray tracing will only be available to top-tier graphics cards including the RTX 1180 Ti that will be coming out at a later date. If you were hoping to get Ray Tracing support on a … [Read more...] about Next-gen Nvidia GTX 1160 Might Not Support Real-time Ray Tracing

BIONIC soldiers with x-ray vision could soon be a reality thanks to a new wireless system that uses radio-waves to map people's movements behind walls. Researchers at MIT trained an artificial intelligence to analyse radio signals that bounce off human bodies to create a dynamic stick figure that mimics a person's actions. The so-called neural network can sense people's postures and movement even from the outside of a building or room. MIT says the tech can be embedded in to a wireless device, which would theoretically allow soldiers to hook it up to their combat gear – like helmets and night-vision goggles. In the future, military personnel could use it on the battlefield to "see" hidden enemies by wearing augmented reality headsets. Researchers are now working to create realistic 3D models that map even more detailed movements. For example, the tech could soon show if a person's hands are shaking. The biggest challenge the team faced is that most neural networks are … [Read more...] about X-ray vision will give soldiers super-hero ability to see through walls
A new League of Legends champion is being teased by Riot Games, and many fans are thinking that it might be some kind of big, dark, manta ray-esque support character, going by the studio’s description. All that we have on what it might be is a picture with little detail. That picture seems more suited to something involving Nautilus, a tank champion that already has the sea as a big part of his character. The picture itself depicts a view outside of what looks like a porthole of a sunken ship, with marine life (including one particularly big whale-like creature) swimming past. What exactly this might mean for this new League of Legends champion remains to be seen, but Riot Games has said that it’s a “dark, aggressive, support champion.” While multiple champions in League of Legends have some history with one another (the various Noxian and Demacian heroes often fighting one another in their kingdoms’ wars, other adventurers encountering one another), … [Read more...] about New League Of Legends Champion Might Be A Dark Manta Ray Support
Microsoft has promised the free-sync support for Xbox One S and Xbox One X and currently, Xbox insiders have the access to this feature, however, folks at Digital Foundry have tested the Xbox One X FreeSync display support to see if the free-sync for the Xbox One X is worth it or not? For those who don’t know, French display support for Xbox One S and Xbox One X will remove the screen tearing during gameplay while allowing to play games at variable framerates. For the purpose of this testing the monitor used was “Asus VP28U” which is not a perfect monitor to test the Free-sync support on the Xbox One X but, it does the job. The games used to test the Xbox One X FreeSync display support were Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, The Vanishing of Ethen Carter, Hitman 2016, Rise Of The Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy 15 and more. The results of the test vary from game to game which you can check out in the video below. Speaking of the Xbox One X, a job listing has emerged … [Read more...] about Xbox One X FreeSync Display Support Tested, Is It Worth It?
All Xbox One X Enhanced games - whether they're exclusive or multiplatform, current or backwards compatible, available now or coming soon (like Cyberpunk 2077, pictured above) - are guaranteed to look fantastic. It's all made possible by the world-class hardware in the Xbox One X, which can boost in-game graphics to previously unseen levels only rivaled by high-end PCs. What Enhanced actually means can vary wildly from game to game, but usually you're looking at 4K output and/or HDR capabilities as a bare minimum. You'll often get plenty of performance bonuses to boot, including graphical upgrades like better lighting and shadows, improved textures, increased detail at distance, and more. Some games like The Witcher 3 and Monster Hunter World also give you the choice between maximum resolution or the highest, smoothest framerates (as the two modes are often a 'one or the other' deal).The best upcoming Xbox One games for 2018 and beyondThere are over 100 Xbox One X Enhanced titles, and … [Read more...] about Every Xbox One X Enhanced game
