Written by Joffy S on 20 April 2015 at 17:00

As we bear down on Skylake’s arrival it was somewhat inevitable leaks would occur. The upcoming Skylake micro-architecture from Intel could be one of the biggest leaps in processing power for years, fabricated on the 14nm node and delivering improved efficiency and performance.

The first CPUs are pencilled in for a launch during the second half of this year, but ahead of then some possible specifications have leaked of the two processors leading the charge; namely the Intel Core i7-6700K, and the i5-6600K, both looking extremely promising if these leaked specs ring true.

Valve Now Restricts Some Steam Features Until 5 USD Is Spent In The Store

Written by Neil Soutter on 20 April 2015 at 14:00

Valve has introduced a new requirement for Steam users in order to prevent spamming and phishing, limiting account features until at least $5/£3.35 has been spent on the digital storefront.

Until users have coughed up the five bucks they’ll be restricted from sending friend invites, gaining any Trading Cards whatsoever, or voting on Steam Greenlight, amongst other things. If you’re kitted out with a Steam account and you’re only plugging away at free-to-play titles such as Team Fortress 2 and DOTA 2, then you’ll need to splash a bit of cash in the store in order to regain access.

12-Year GPU Market Share History Of Nvidia And AMD Revealed

Written by Joffy S on 20 April 2015 at 12:45

An image has cropped up on a number of forums over the weekend, depicting AMD and Nvidia’s respective market share during the past 12 years. It’s a fascinating look at the disparity between two competing technology giants, but it doesn’t necessarily make for nice reading from an AMD perspective.

Nvidia’s dominance has long been known, but this latest chart indicates AMD's got some serious catching up to do on the graphics card front. While for much of the 12-year period Nvidia has outsold AMD, nowhere has AMD’s market position been worse than right now. The launches of the GTX 980, 970 and 960, without reply from AMD, has seen market share slump to just 24%. [More]

Total Chaos In Latest Blood Bowl 2 Gameplay Trailer

Written by Neil Soutter on 20 April 2015 at 10:15

For many of us outside of the States, good old American Football is a bit of a confusing sport. I’ve just about grasped a touchdown, but as for the difference between a blitz and a sack, I’d have to turn to my good friend Google.

Cyanide’s Blood Bowl II is an altogether different take on the sport, and dare I say a little more inviting to newcomers. The footballers have been switched out, in typical Games Workshop style, for dwarves, orcs, chaos and more, in a reimagining of the tabletop classic. By all accounts the original was pretty good, but if this latest Blood Bowl 2 trailer is anything to go by then the sequel is really upping the ante. [More]

Mortal Kombat X GTX 650 Benchmarks

Written by Joffy S on 19 April 2015 at 16:00

The grizzled old stalwart of the fighting game genre is back with a bang, as Mortal Kombat X delivers one of the most visceral outings yet for the claret-spewing series. A penchant for the red stuff and a love of all things over-the-top are all that are needed to hop into NetherRealm's fighter.

We've had our hands on Mortal Kombat X for a few days now, and we've been putting it through its paces in a series of benchmarks. First up is the GeForce GTX 650, which comes in, worryingly, just below the minimum system requirements of a GTX 460. 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 copes with the fighter in our MKX PC benchmarks. [More]

Written by Stuart Thomas on 19 April 2015 at 14:00

Project CARS has officially gone gold and it’ll be with us in just a few week’s time, Slightly Mad Studios has announced. It’s been a long old journey, with more than its fair share of delays, but racing sim fans could very well have the answer to their nitrous-fuelled prayers come May 8th.

In celebration of its gold status, Slightly Mad Studios has also released the entire track list for Project CARS. Swatting aside practically every other racer out there, Project CARS will come with a staggering 110 total courses to tear around, including all of the course variants. [More]

AMD Expects Windows 10 To Arrive In July

Written by Joffy S on 19 April 2015 at 12:00

AMD, like a number of other hardware manufacturers, has its hopes pinned on Windows 10 to reinvigorate demand for PC hardware and builds across the board. To that end it’s certainly got an ear to the ground when it comes to the next generation of Microsoft’s operating system.

During a conference call this week AMD’s chief executive officer, Lisa Su, revealed the expected launch time frame for Microsoft’s Windows 10 OS, and it doesn’t sound like we’ll be having to wait too long to get our hands on it. [More]
