Say what you will about The Walking Dead, but the recent VR title by Skybound Interactive has been received quite well. So naturally the next step is to make another VR title based in the Walking Dead universe. ¬¬g_id:37473[The Walking Dead Onslaught]¬¬ is a new VR game launching on September 29th, and the first gameplay has been revealed alongside the official PC system requirements.

So how does it look? Will we need a beefed up PC capable of slaughtering waves of the undead? Or are we fine with some low-spec hardware so we can duck in between the hordes? We take a look at the PC system requirements for The Walking Dead: Onslaught...

Intel has officially announced that they are working on a graphics card specifically for the gaming enthusiast market, and will even feature hardware-accelerated ray training support. The announcement came today from Intel’s own architecture day, via Intel’s chief architect and senior vice president for the discrete graphics division, Raja Koduri.

The Intel Xe lineup includes 4 different variants for different sectors, aiming at various audiences, with Xe-LP, Xe-HP, Xe-HPC, and now the Xe-HPG for gaming enthusiasts. SO it seems like Intel will now be a direct competitor with AMD and Nvidia when these new cards are expected to launch sometime in 2021.

Microsoft and Sony have been battling against each other recently to take the crown as the best next-gen console. Now whilst we all know that the real winner here is PC players, it’s still frustrating that no one has revealed anything about pricing or release dates yet. Well today Microsoft have revealed that the Xbox Series X will officially launch this November.

No specific date was revealed yet unfortunately, so we could be looking at anywhere between November 1st and November 30th, but at least it’s been narrowed down to a single month now. The news came shortly after the headlining title for the Xbox, Halo Infinite, was delayed until 2021.

Nvidia is getting ready to officially announce their next generation of graphics cards with the RTX 30 series based on the Ampere architecture, and a couple of days ago they teased something big coming in the next few weeks. That teaser, it turned out, has been officially revealed as a countdown to a “GeForce Special Event” taking place on September 1st.

Whilst it’s pretty obvious that this event will be to officially announce the next-gen lineup of cards, actual details are still quite hush hush at the moment. But now, according to some sources online, both Nvidia themselves as well as their Add-in Board (AIB) partners will be launching their founders edition and custom cards respectively will be launching at the same time.

Nvidia is gearing up to officially announce their next generation of RTX 30 series graphics cards based on the new Ampere architecture, with the latest tease counting down to 21 days from now. 21 days from yesterday is August 31st, however it’s been officially revealed that an Nvidia GeForce Special Event is scheduled for September 1st instead. Look don’t ask us, math is hard.

Nevertheless, that special event seems to be the official reveal we were just talking about, as the next generation of GPUs is being ushered in around the same time as next-gen consoles. Nvidia is counting down the 21 days until the event with a post each day reminiscing on the biggest breakthroughs for each year since 1999, and if you’ve been doing the math, that’s 21 years ago.

Codemasters' latest racing sim ¬¬g_id:37189[Dirt 5]¬¬ is releasing in a couple months on October 16th after being delayed by a week, but how demanding will the game be when it hits our PC systems? Will we need the horsepower of a high-end car engine to run smoothly? Let's take a look at the official PC system requirements for Dirt 5...

In order to run the Dirt 5 recommended requirements you will need a GTX 1070 Ti or Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card with a Core i5-9600K or Ryzen 5 2600X processor, achieving high graphics setting at 1080p resolution. 16GB of RAM will also be needed to achieve the Dirt 5 recommended specs and get 60FPS.

Nvidia recently just shared a new announcement on Twitter that teases something big coming in 21 days. It’s led to a lot of speculation online already, but almost everyone is convinced it has something to do with the upcoming next-gen RTX 30 series graphics cards based on the Ampere architecture.

21 days from now is slap bang on August 31st, a day after the Gamescom 2020 online event finishes. This correlates with Nvidia’s release of the previous RTX 20 series release, which saw an official announcement at Gamescom followed by a September release, which also directly correlates with rumors of a September release for the RTX 30 series.

The bid race to acquire SoftBanks ARM is starting to get quite heated, and rightly so as the regulatory issues associated with a single company like Nvidia purchasing them are a major talking point. After word that Samsung was looking to get in on the deal by acquiring some stakes in ARM and creating a consortium of companies, it looks like SoftBank have now approached both TSMC and Foxconn as potential buyers.

According to a new report, SoftBank contacted other tech companies as well as Nvidia and Apple about possibly buying ARM, and even supplied them with extensive financial data that included details of income as well as future projections in order to show the true worth of the investment.
