Battlefield 5 was revealed yesterday evening, and despite being five months away from release, DICE has kindly revealed the minimum PC specs for Battlefield V. As per usual, BFV is running on Frostbite, bringing the same large-scale warfare and chaotic destruction we saw in Battlefield 1. Do you need to upgrade your PC to run Battlefield V though? Let's find out.
A Principal Programmer at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has revealed via his LinkedIn profile that he’s been working with with AMD on improving its Ryzen “znver1” microarchitecture support within the LLVM compiler stack. The LLVM compiler is a vital component when developing for the PlayStation 4, although Sony’s current console, of course, doesn’t feature a Ryzen CPU.
The Crew 2 is kicking off a large-scale beta test at the end of this month and in the meantime, Ubisoft has revealed the official PC system requirements for its massive open-world racer. For the first time in the series, players can take to land, sea, and air, for racing hijinks, both online and offline. Flying a high-speed jet through a packed city surely doesn't take it easy on your graphics hardware though. Here's what you'll need to run The Crew 2 on PC.
Rumours of a PlayStation 5 have been swirling for a while now, but now Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO, John Kodera, has fanned the flames yet further by claiming the PlayStation 4 is coming to the end of its lifespan.
There have been murmurings for a while now, but Nvidia has finally launched its new 3GB variant of the GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card. It’s a weird little thing, so no wonder Nvidia hasn’t made much of a fuss about its launch, coming as it does about 18 months after the launch of both the GeForce GTX 1050 and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
After it leaked last week, Microsoft has officially revealed the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a very neat device made in conjunction with several gaming charities that offers a customisable new way to play games for gamers with disabilities such as limited mobility.
Nvidia has been busy teasing its presence at both GTC (GPU Technology Conference) Taiwan and Computex 2018. The leading graphics card provider in the world promises that attendees will witness the ultimate gaming experiences, raising the possibility of a reveal of its much anticipated GeForce GTX 11 (or 20xx) series graphics cards.
Seldom a month seems to go by without Nvidia yet again smashing its own records in terms of financial success. The fightback against Nvidia’s GeForce Partner Program seems to have done absolutely nothing to dent Team Green’s unstoppable success. The GPU manufacturer managed to increase its revenue a staggering 66% year on year for the Q1 2019 fiscal period.
It's a crying shame we've never got a sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade -Bloodlines, but in the meantime, Life is Strange developer Dontnod is hoping to fill the void with Vampyr, a narrative-driven action-RPG set in 1918 London that places the emphasis on player choice. There's plenty of potential in this one, but will you need a human blood sacrifice to the dark gods to run it? Here are the official Vampyr PC system specs.
In amongst the full-time job of counting all its Fortnite cash, Epic Games has posted a new video recommending that all developers with Unreal Engine 4 begin using Nvidia’s RTX real-time ray tracing technology.
Nvidia has announced the cancellation of its GeForce Partner Program, in what’s turned out to be a rather embarrassing climb down. Originally announced back in March, Nvidia’s stated intention was to  “help gamers know what they are buying” and ensure its “engineering and marketing efforts support brands consumers associate with GeForce.” The end result was anything but helpful, effectively strong-arming AIB partners into stripping their established gaming brands from AMD Radeon products.
