Dying Light GeForce GTX 650 Benchmarks

Written by Joffy S on 29 January 2015 at 17:30

 It appears that Techland's latest open-world zombie title is quite a demanding beast. Having pitched Dying Light against the GTX 750 Ti in our last range of benchmarks, we thought it would be best to take things little lower for the next test, to see how Nvidia's humble GTX 650 could handle the high-speed ultra-violent parkour.

We're putting Dying Light through some benchmark tests on the GeForce GTX 650, which under the hood has an AMD FX-4100 processor and 4GB of system memory. So before you splash out the cash on Techland's title, check out these benchmarks to see if your rig's up to scratch.   [More]

AMD Bristol Ridge And Summit Ridge APUs To Succeed Kaveri in 2016

Written by Joffy S on 29 January 2015 at 16:30

AMD is looking to refresh its Kaveri APUs this coming summer with its ‘Godavari’ APUs, but, looking beyond that into 2016, a new report suggests AMD is readying a new series of APUs dubbed ‘Bristol Ridge’.

While Godavari will be on the Steamroller CPU architecture, Bristol Ridge will be on the last member of the Bulldozer family, Excavator. It’s expected to continue in the vein of its current APUs, with a 12-core design split between four CPU cores and eight GPU cores. [More]

AMD Teasing Possible Hardware Reveal This Friday In The FIX3R Video

Written by Joffy S on 29 January 2015 at 15:15

AMD is launched a new ‘FIX3R’ teaser video, possibly indicating an imminent revealed of its Radeon R9 300 series. This brief trailer from AMD appears to indicate that something is going down on Friday, with the logical thing being the unveiling of AMD’s next generation of graphics cards.

While there have been a few Fixer videos before - he’s a man synonymous with lambasting team green - the announcement would be perfectly poised to take advantage of the backlash hitting Nvidia’s GTX 970 over the past fortnight. While previous FIXER videos have never hinted at a new product, the respelling to FIX3R implies something to do with the R300 series. [More]

Capcom Reveals First Trailer For F2P MMO Dragons Dogma Online

Written by Stuart Thomas on 29 January 2015 at 14:00

Capcom has revealed the world’s first trailer for Dragon’s Dogma Online, a multiplayer sequel of sorts to the original Dragon’s Dogma, which was console exclusive. Dragon’s Dogma Online is an action MMORPG set within a giant fantasy world, where you and your fellow players can go out on hunts to bring down towering monsters.

The F2P Dragon’s Dogma Online is set to come to PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3, and will be a pseudo MMO in that features a vast open-world and a lobby with support for up to 100 players, from which players can form parties of four for quests or up to eight to raid, before setting off into the unknown.

Nvidia Admits Official GeForce GTX 970 Specs Wrong - Working On Driver Performance Fix

Written by Joffy S on 29 January 2015 at 12:45

Nvidia’s found itself in a bit a mess with the recent controversy surrounding the performance of the GeForce GTX 970, after users reported issues with the usage of the full 4GB onboard memory. The world’s leading dedicated graphics card manufacturer has now admitted it incorrectly stated the number of Raster Operations Pipelines (ROPs) when it released the tech specs.

Rather than the 64 ROPs declared, the GeForce GTX 970 in fact features just 56 ROPs, with a drastically reduced memory bandwidth when the remaining 0.5GB VRAM is accessed. Nvidia has now vowed to boost the performance of the Geforce GTX 970 with a driver update, which should theoretically fix the memory allocation problems. [More]

CD Projekt RED Is Hitting Out Against Paid DLC With The Witcher III Post-Launch Plans

Written by Stuart Thomas on 29 January 2015 at 11:30

We’ve known for a while now that CD Projekt RED has some pretty grand plans lined up for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt post-launch, with a weekly schedule of 16 free content packs coming to keep players busy for the ensuing two months.

GOG.com owners CD Projekt RED have long been bastions of consumer rights, actively dispensing with DRM technology and providing significant patches and content updates to its titles free of charge. Nothing will be changing for The Witcher 3, with CDPR acknowledging it is making a significant statement with its plans. [More]

Unreal Paris In Unreal Engine 4 Looks So Real Its Unreal

Written by Joffy S on 29 January 2015 at 10:15

No, don't worry, you've not just stumbled onto a site specialising in interior design. If you wanted further proof of just what Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 is capable of with enough graphical firepower backing it, then you could do no wrong than checking out this stunning virtual tour of a Parisian apartment. While graphics are by no means everything, this pixel-perfect creation is one of the most lifelike things we’ve ever seen come out of Unreal Engine 4, delivering high-fidelity visuals with some incredibly lifelike lighting effects.

Created by CG generalist and level designer Benoit Dereau, this photorealistic flat is his first ever creation in Unreal Engine 4. He’s made use of incredible high-quality textures for the work, manipulating UE4’s newfound lighting options to create one of the most lifelike digital environments we’ve ever seen. [More]

GD Machine 2014 Benchmark Dying Light GTX 750 Ti i5 4670K

Written by Joffy S on 28 January 2015 at 16:30

January's been a quiet month when it comes to massive titles needing to be put to the test in some benchmarks, but following the unfortunate delay of Grand Theft Auto V, Techland has provided us with a graphically-demanding beast with Dying Light

First-person parkour over a vast open-world city, Dying Light is grimly beautiful. Not that you'll have too much time to gaze over Harran though, you're never more than a moment's notice away from being some shambling monstrosities dinner. Over the last few days we've been busy putting Dying Light to the test against the GD Machine 2014. Armed with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, an Intel i5-4670K processor, and 8GB of system memory, it's time to see how it fares in our Dying Light benchmarks.   [More]

Warhammer Quest Review : If I Had Warhammer, I Would Hammer In The Morning

Written by phat_chopps on 28 January 2015 at 15:15

I’ve always been a simple man when it comes to games – I’ll champion something that was done well, even if it is a simple, one-trick pony. I didn’t realise I was quite this simple though (others may have done though). You see, Warhammer Quest has been eating my time since I was passed it to review whilst Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Transistor and The Wolf Among Us all sit there unplayed. Not unloved or unwanted, mind you, I just can’t prise myself away from Warhammer Quest’s flimsy charms.

Warhammer Quest is based on an old board game of the same name and, like the board game, is basically a top-down dungeon crawler in which you take a party of four adventurers on various adventures in dungeons through three different Warhammer regions. You know the score: dungeons contain bad guys; heroes kill bad guys; heroes gain items, gold and experience. Use gold to purchase better equipment, use experience to level up and gain exciting new abilities. Rinse and repeat in more difficult dungeons for better rewards. Standard RPG fare that’s been the same since the Minoans invented role-playing. [More]
