Intel Claims It Will Be Producing 10TB SSDs Within 2 Years

Written by Jon Sutton on 23 November 2014 at 16:00

During a recent webcast to investors, Intel executives revealed plans for three-dimensional NAND flash memory to be incorporated in its solid-state drives for future products. The SSDs would be the largest commercial products of their kind, and the breakthrough in flash storage means that 10 terabyte SSD’s could become a reality within the next two years.

The massive high-speed storage is possible because of 3D NAND memory, which allows for the stacking of multiple levels of memory on top of one another. The memory, developed in partnership with Micron, allows for up to 32 layers of NAND flash, theoretically providing 48GB of storage on a single die, single up from the equivalent 16GB achieved by Samsung on its V-NAND equivalent.

Never Alone Review : Kisima Innitchuna

Written by Jon Sutton on 23 November 2014 at 14:00

It’s not often we get our hands on such a gaming curio as Never Alone but Upper One Games indie adventure is a strange beast. Occupying a space in the gaming smorgasbord occupied by few others, Never Alone stands alone as a testament to educational gaming. Before you start rolling your eyes and having fevered nightmares of Mario’s Early Years! though, it’s worth giving this unusual tale a go. Never Alone, or Kisima Innitchuna in its native tongue, is a game developed in collaboration with the Iñupiat, an Alaska Native people. Rarely have so games so thoroughly embraced and immersed itself in the culture of anything, except mass murder.

Written by Stuart Thomas on 23 November 2014 at 12:00

A new free downloadable update for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has been released. Power of Defiance adds an entirely new character to play as in the form of Lithariel, as well as a new Test of Defiance Challenge Mode and an additional Epic Rune.

Blitzkrieg 3 Behind The Scenes Trailer Reveals The Secrets Behind Map Design

Written by Stuart Thomas on 23 November 2014 at 10:00

Every peek we get at Blitzkrieg 3 it gets more and more promising, like a love-letter to strategy gaming of yesteryear that takes no prisoners. This latest trailer focuses on the landscape, a crucial part of the battlefield that experience strategists can use to their advantage to pummel their foes.

Developer Nival looks to be placing a lot of emphasis on thoughtful and methodical tactics that can turn the tide of battle, such as setting up defenses and fortifying bridges, grabbing the higher ground or blowing up river crossings to put a spanner in the works for foes. [More]

GD Machine 2014 Far Cry 4 750 Ti Performance Benchmark Video

Written by Jon Sutton on 22 November 2014 at 16:00

Yesterday we put up our official benchmark results for the GD Machine 2014 on Far Cry 4, but to give a feel for how it plays we've grabbed some footage of it running at both 1080p and 900p resolution. In yesterday's benchmarks the 750 Ti coped pretty well, much better than in Assassin's Creed Unity at least, but if you want to get some 1080p gaming going you might need to dial back a few options.

For those unfamiliar with the GD Machine 2014 the 750 Ti is ably backed up by an i5-4670K and 8GB of RAM. Basically it’s got the recommended requirements for Unity covered when it comes to memory and CPU, but the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a fair chunk weaker than the recommended requirement of a GeForce GTX 680.

Majestic Nights Review : Meh World Order

Written by Stuart Thomas on 22 November 2014 at 14:00

Lizard-alien hybrids communicate with the government directly through their interpreter, Elvis Presley, from a secret base on a crashed UFO deep beneath Denver Airport. They sold the CIA the secret of using LSD to create an army of psychic super-soldiers, and now the US intelligence agencies foment minor wars worldwide to test out the effectiveness of these troops. Meanwhile, ex-Nazis who escaped Germany after the war live in pyramids on the moon where they control the World Bank by causing tiny fluctuations in the stock market which ripple through the global economy.

All of which is super-cool fodder for the imagination. So long as you don't take conspiracy theory too seriously, it's fantastic fodder for the world of videogames. Mysterious bad guys, secrets to uncover, mysteries to solve... it's a wonder, really, that we don't see more games that use global conspiracy as their theme. Of course, the smash hit in the genre will remain Deus Ex, just as Robert Anton Wilson's terrifically weird Illuminatus remains the ultimate in conspiracy literature (whatever Dan Brown might think).  [More]
