Up For Debate - Graphical Downgrades

Written by Joffy S on 23 May 2015 at 14:00

The thorny issue of graphical downgrades has become a hot topic in recent years. The Watch Dogs controversy was far-reaching, but it’s The Witcher 3 that’s ended up lighting the touchpaper once more. After a two-year wait since its E3 2013 unveiling, expectations were sky-high CD Projekt RED was going to deliver a visual tour de force.

Make no mistake, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still a looker, but a number of gamers have latched on to the differences between pre-release footage and the final version. There’s no denying there’s some clear changes between what was shown all those years ago, and what’s sitting on our hard drives now, but is it CD Projekt RED’s fault, and is it an acceptable outcome?

GeForce GTX 980 Ti First Specs And Benchmark Results Revealed

Written by Neil Soutter on 23 May 2015 at 12:00

It looks as if the final specs of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti have been partially revealed, alongside the first benchmark results. A leaked shipping record suggests the GeForce GTX 980 Ti is already beginning to roll out. It features a GM200-310 GPU, 6GB GDDR5 memory and a 384-bit memory bus.

Unfortunately there’s still no word on pricing, but we do have our hands on the first benchmark results. The performance numbers come from a 3DMark test, and it also provides a further specification breakdown. As expected the GTX 980 Ti is using the a modified version of the GM200 GPU used in the GTX Titan X, albeit with two SMMs disabled to make use of the less than perfect chip yield from the Titan X. Despite this, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti still more than holds its own against the brute force of Nvidia’s GTX Titan X… [More]

Torment: Tides Of Numenera Trailer Takes A Tour Of The Ninth World

Written by Stuart Thomas on 23 May 2015 at 10:00

By now practically every classic RPG has got a spiritual successor out in some shape or form. Except, that is, for Planescape Torment. inXile Entertainment has been hard at work on Torment: Tides of Numenera for a while now, following a Kickstarter campaign which saw it raise more than $4 million back in March, 2013.

The Wasteland 2 developer has now released a new trailer for Torment: Tides of Numenera, showing off the spiritual successor to Black Isle Studios’ 1999 cult classic role-playing game. The video explores the Ninth World in which Torment is set, and it’s sporting that classic up-ressed Infinity Engine look which made Pillars of Eternity such a looker. [More]

Photo Posted By EA Technical Director Of What Looks To Be An AMD R9 390X Graphics Card

Written by Joffy S on 22 May 2015 at 15:37

Just a quick update here, but Electronic Arts’ technical director on Frostbite, Johan Andersson, has tweeted out an image of what very much looks to be the next flagship AMD graphics card - the AMD Radeon R9 390X.

While it’s by no means concrete info, it certainly looks like the leaked renders we saw a few weeks ago, indicating that those were very much the real deal. Andersson tweeted out the image, alongside the message “This new island is one seriously impressive and sweet GPU. wow & thanks @AMDRadeon ! They will be put to good use :)”, alluding to the Pirate Island GPUs. [More]

Batman: Arkham Knight Live Action Trailer Shows What You Need To Be The Batman

Written by Stuart Thomas on 22 May 2015 at 14:00

There’s a new trailer out for Batman: Arkham Knight, and I get the distinct impression after watching it that Warner Bros wants me to punch strangers on a train, run headlong into a burning building, and singlehandedly take on three armed muggers, risks be damned.

The live action Batman: Arkham Knight - Be the Batman trailer emphasises the selflessness, courage, and determination needed to be the Caped Crusader himself. Personally I find impeccable counter-attack timing, hiding in vents, and picking off poor guards one by one to be the necessary tools. Oh, and there’s even a bit of gameplay footage thrown on at the end for good measure. [More]

Written by Joffy S on 22 May 2015 at 12:45

Intel has been finalising the launch schedules for the entirety of its upcoming range of processors based on the ‘Skylake’ microarchitecture. Previous estimates had hinted the first desktop processors could arrive late this year, but the latest reports indicate Intel could have Skylake-S ready as soon August this year.

We’re expected to finally get our first look at the Skylake microprocessors during the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, set to run from 18th-20th August. Intel’s got plenty to demonstrate, with quite a few processors expected towards the tail-end of this year and into the beginning of 2016. [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 22 May 2015 at 11:30

First-person hack ‘n’ slasher Hellraid is on the rocks, as developer Techland has scrapped work on the project and sent it back to the drawing board. The Dying Light and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger developer has announced it will no longer be launching this year, and development has been put on hold to focus on other projects.

The projects in question? Well, Techland has said it wants to consolidate its development resources and have a focus on expanding the Dying Light universe, whether that be further content packs or a full-blown sequel. [More]
