A few interesting snippets have emerged on AMD’s next-generation processors, specifically the newly dubbed 'Gray Hawk' APUs. We’re still a way off from their expected 2019 launch, but these 7nm FinFET chips will utilise the upcoming Zen+ microarchitecture, delivering a quad-core, eight thread CPU with onboard GPU, all with as little as 10W TDP.

If any theme park management games want to be taken seriously, handling forty tonnes of metal crashing at speeds in excess of 100km/h should be a top priority. It's like wanting to know how we can kill our Sims in a new The Sims game. Evidently it’s an item at the top of the agenda for Frontier with Planet Coaster. A new trailer shows off the physics based craziness that can occur should one of your high-speed monstrosities go a little ‘off-piste’. [More]

Nvidia is putting the parts in place to launch its budget-priced GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards this October, according to a fresh leak. Both of the new 10 Series graphics cards will be equipped with a Pascal GP107 graphics processor manufactured on the 16nm FinFET fabrication process. This delivers the performance and efficiency gains of Pascal but for the more budget conscious PC gamer. [More]

It might not be quite what we were expecting from the Sleeping Dogs devs, but United Front Games returns this month with a twist on old-school beat-em-ups. Smash + Grab is an online gang battle, pitting teams of thugs against each other in a battle to loot a city while causing as much damage and mayhem as possible. It's Streets of Rage for the 21st century. Before you go a throw a brick through that shop window though, make sure you know which PC components you're going to have to loot to meet the official Smash + Grab system requirements.   [More]

If you’re as tired as me of how stagnant Steam has been the last couple of years, you might be pleased to hear some wholesale changes are coming to Valve’s PC game client. A total visual overhaul is the headline feature, giving the home page a visual refresh with a new layout, bigger game images, less clutter and new, more advanced ways of surfacing games you perhaps don’t know about yet.

Activision and Infinity Ward have announced the dates for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s beta test and, surprise surprise, it clashes directly with the much hyped launch of DICE’s Battlefield 1. [More]

Possibly to Sony’s detriment, a huge deal was made about the reveal of the PlayStation 4 Pro in the months leading up to it. The so-called ‘PS4K’ was backed into a corner by the assumption from some that it would be capable of 4K gaming. It’s not. It’s a decent effort. But it’s not. However what it has done is shine a major spotlight on 4K gaming as a whole. Up until now it’s been a very, very minor part of the games market. Heck, the percentage of gamers which run at 4K, according to the latest Steam hardware survey, is a very optimistic 2.08%. [More]

And so it is, with the annual arrival of FIFA, we enter the silly season. Every games publisher under the sun decides to release their games at the exact same time, seemingly with some inside knowledge that our pockets are far deeper than they actually are. We’ve got some absolute behemoths dropping on PC over the next 10-12 weeks, but which are going to succeed and which will be squashed by the competition? [More]

I know I should be once bitten, twice shy and all that, but I think I can feel myself being suckered into Watch Dogs 2 all over again. Don’t let us down Ubisoft. The new Watch Dogs 2 story trailer is out and it’s all kinds of slick, delving into insidious Blume corporation and getting to grips with Marcus Holloway and his hacking crew. [More]

There are few surer bets in the world of gaming than Grand Theft Auto 6. GTA 5 has shifted 65 million units and counting, and still consistently sits near the top of the bestseller charts. Take-Two execs will have been leaning on Rockstar to get it out as quickly as possible. As hyped as gamers are for Red Dead 3, Rockstar will be lucky if it sells even a quarter of GTA 6. [More]

Who runs Bartertown? No, I mean, it's a serious question. Because, obviously, we hear Auntie mumbling that Master Blaster runs Bartertown, but could you imagine him/them actually trying to get anything done other than getting everyone to pay them lip service? Perhaps not. [More]
