2004 was a glorious year. Battlefield Vietnam arrived, and I must've wasted months of my time that should probably have been better spent studying. But who wants to read textbooks when you could be creeping through the jungle laying traps, or piloting a Cobra while Credence Clearwater Revival blares out. There's been nothing else quite like it since, but Rising Storm 2: Vietnam hopes to fill that Viet Cong-shaped hole. After a substantial period of development (aided by the success of Rising Storm), Rising Storm 2: Vietnam will be with us this summer. Here are the official PC specs for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.

UPDATE: 28/04/2017 - Drop the flaming pitcforks ladies and gents, AMD has moved swiftly to calm the outrage that popped up when an advert for Quake Champions was installed on users' desktops as part of the latest Radeon 17.4.4 driver. Since yesterday, AMD has updated the 17.4.4 Dawn of War of Drivers and removed the Quake Champions URL shortcut from appearing on the desktop. [More]

Codemasters has dropped the first gameplay trailer for Dirt 4, showcasing the return of its octane rally racer. Unsurprisingly it features a lot of cars tearing it around tracks at ludicrously dangerous speeds, resulting in more than a few instances of crunching metal and the sinking feeling of 20 seconds lost.

AMD has just pushed out a new set of drivers for its Ryzen processors, improving both gaming performance and power efficiency. You may remember AMD talking a little about this earlier this month; AMD accepting the challenge from fans to further improve performance in AMD Ryzen chipsets while using the default ‘Balanced’ power plan, which Windows 10 typically favours. These latest 17.10 AMD Chipset Drivers automatically activate the new power plan and allows Ryzen more control over its own power states, making it capable of changing CPU frequency and voltage far more quickly.

We're just over a week away from the Prey reboot's launch, so we were a little concerned when we still didn't have system requirements, particularly after Arkane decided to skip a PC demo. They're out now though, and just in the nick of time. Should you want to scare yourself witless in the depths of space, here's the specs you'll need to run Prey (2017) on PC. [More]

Nintendo’s just had an investor-pleasing financial roll call, announcing that its Nintendo Switch console sold through 2.74 million units with the first month alone. Nintendo’s pre-launch target was to hit 2m, so it’s beat that and then some. This led Nintendo to drastically increase production of the Switch over the next 12 months. [More]

Not ones to be left out these days, AMD has got out there and released its Radeon Crimson Driver 17.4.4 in preparation for Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3’s release later today. Unlike Nvidia’s own Day One driver rollout though, we actually get some concrete performance figures. The Radeon 17.4.4 driver improves FPS in Dawn of War 3 by as much a 7% compared to the 17.4.3  when using AMD’s latest Radeon RX 580 8GB graphics card, presumably with some smaller gains for its other hardware. That’s not bad going; a decent uptick in performance. [More]

Nvidia is planning to take on the budget level gaming market by launching the GeForce GT 1030, which will supposedly compete with AMD's Radeon RX 550. AMD's low-end card currently retails for an attractive $79 price tag. The RX 550's performance is slightly lower than the fairly old GTX 750 Ti, so it is quite possible that Nvidia will be aiming for a higher performance card but with the same price tag.

There’s a double helping of Forza Horizon 3 news for you today. Firstly, developers Turn 10 and Playground Games are releasing a PC patch next month which will improve CPU performance optimisation. From the sounds of it Forza Horizon 3 will better support additional cores and multi-threading, which should help with the stuttering some have been experiencing since launch. [More]
