DirectX 12 Multi-Adapter Technology Uses Both Integrated And Dedicated GPUs

Written by Joffy S on 04 May 2015 at 16:00

A few months back an intriguing rumour cropped up regarding DirectX 12 making use of the shared performance of both discrete and integrated GPUs, and following Square Enix’s Build 2015 Witch - Chapter 0 [cry] demo it’s emerged this technology is very much real

Known as DirectX 12 Multi-Adapter Rendering, the latest technology is designed to capitalise on every piece of graphics hardware sitting inside a PC. Most of today’s central processing units come equipped with integrated graphics, iGPUs which lay dormant once beefier dedicated hardware is installed. With Multi-Adapter Rendering the two GPUs will work in conjunction, providing a small but significant performance boost. [More]

Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass Content Detailed - Includes Playable Batgirl

Written by Neil Soutter on 04 May 2015 at 14:00

Warner Bros and Rocksteady have detailed the contents of Batman: Arkham Knight’s rather expensive season pass. Originally revealed last week, it appears as if the fan backlash to the $40/£33 season pass has forced their hand, detailing the pretty extensive goodies gamers will get if they go all in on the DLC extravaganza.

The headline act is undoubtedly Batgirl: A Matter of Family, a new prequel story expansion set within an entirely new location, never before seen in the Arkham series. Most intriguingly we’ll be playing as Batgirl for the first time, in what promises to be a fairly significant chunk of content. [More]

Written by Stuart Thomas on 04 May 2015 at 12:00

Nostalgia’s a powerful thing, and nowhere is this more evident than the Kickstarter campaign for Yooka-Laylee. Developed by new studio Playtonic, the outfit is comprised of a number of ex-Rare devs who worked on platforming gold like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country.

The Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter went live on Friday afternoon, and within the hour had smashed through its £175,000 goal. Within a matter of hours it had become the fastest Kickstarter to rake in $1 million, and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping anytime soon. [More]

WWE 2K15 GTX 650 Benchmarks

Written by Joffy S on 03 May 2015 at 16:00

WWE meet PC. PC, meet WWE. The two have never seen fit to meet one another now, at least not in an official capacity, but the tombstonin', superplex rocking king of the ring has at last hit PC. The wait looks to have been worth it though, with us getting the souped up current-gen version with a presentation overhaul and visuals so authentic you can almost taste Daniel Bryan's wispy beard.

We've had our hands on WWE 2K15 for a few days now, and we've been putting it through its paces in a series of benchmarks.  For this benchmark we're going to be using the trusty GeForce GTX 650. It's going to be backed up by an AMD FX-4100 processor and 4GB of RAM. Not masses of power there, but we'll see how it handles itself in the right with our WWE 2K15 PC benchmarks. [More]

Up For Debate: Season Passes - Are They Worth It

Written by Joffy S on 03 May 2015 at 14:00

This week Warner Bros and Rocksteady well and truly set the bat amongst the pigeons when it announce the Batman: Arkham Knight season pass last week. Priced at an eye-watering £33, it was a huge signifier of just how big business these post-launch DLC collections are.

Announced nearly two full months ahead of Arkham Knight’s release, the Season Pass costs almost twice as much as the base game can be found for pre-order. It didn’t end there either, with the obligatory £34.99 Call of Duty: Black Ops III season pass announced just days ago, adding four map packs for just £5 shy of the main game’s RRP. [More]
