Haswell-E Processors Will Have Varied PCI-E Lanes, i7-5820K Will Only Access 28

Written by Katie Allen on 22 August 2014 at 17:00

Thanks to some leaked manuals for Gigabyte’s X99 motherboards, it looks like the upcoming Intel Core i7-5820K will be able to address fewer PCI-E lanes than other, more powerful i7-5000 series CPUs.

According to the leaks, the Haswell-E CPUs will have a variety of different PCI-Express lanes. So whilst more expensive models like the i7-5930K will be able to address 40 lanes, the 5820K - the cheapest card in the line - will only access 28 lanes. [More]

GamersGoMakers Review : Development Hell

Written by Paulo Proenca on 22 August 2014 at 15:30

As a fan of the previously released Game Dev Tycoon, I'll admit I was pretty excited to see Gnifrebel Games' GamersGoMakers (GGM) launch. The game is a new attempt at putting you in charge of the very complex gaming market, and given my positive experience with Game Dev Tycoon I decided to try my hand at this new title.

Unfortunately, things didn't start very well. As soon as I started the game, my first issue was the visual style. It's in every way similar to Game Dev Tycoon (GDT), but this similarity is merely surface deep. The clean pretty aesthetic hides what is, in fact, a clumsy interface full of interactions that add nothing new to the experience, as they can be accessed via the main menu and end up contributing to an overall illusion of features.

NBA 2K15 System Requirements

Written by Jon Sutton on 22 August 2014 at 14:15

Like a lot of sports franchises on PC, 2K's NBA series has taken a bit of time to make the leap to its next-generation graphics engine. While PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners were treated to the stunning new engine last year, it's at last made its way to us for NBA 2K15. This means NBA 2K15 will be the best looking basketball game in existence on PC, sporting unparalleled levels of detail and ultra realistic animation to take shooting hoops to the next level.

2K announced last week that from here on out the PC versions of NBA 2K15 and beyond are going to match the console versions feature for feature. Every mode and every detail will be present on PC. For the first time ever the EuroLeague teams have been included, among a host of gameplay and graphical improvements. To find out whether your PC's going to pull a flop or a slam-dunk though, read on to check out the NBA 2K15 system requirements. [More]
