    2016+ CPU/GPU News

    Zen 4 will have a roughly ~8% IPC increase, possibly more or less depending on the application, but will scale to hit much higher clock speeds out of the box. For example, 5.0-5.2 GHz all-core, 5.5-5.7 GHz single core. Also confirmed to have some subset of AVX-512 instructions. No 3D V-Cache at launch, but they can pull that out in 2023. They also have the option to drop in a 16-core Zen 4C chiplet if they need to do that before Zen 5 appears. This could allow them to copy the 8+16 configuration of Intel's Raptor Lake. All models should come with a small integrated RDNA2 iGPU in the I/O die, with support for up to 4 display outputs. It would likely be slower than a Steam Deck unless it can be overclocked very high, but good enough to use a GUI, play some older games, and get hardware accelerated video encode/decode including AV1 decode. Here's a little something about a potential RX 6300 for the desktop. It could be seen as a GT 1030 replacement, but the nerfed video encode/decode capabilities of the Navi 24 die (removed AV1 decode and H.264/H.265 encode) might make it unacceptable for some HTPC users: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-possibly-preparing-a-rx-6300
  3. I can only imagine what playing that mission in VR would feel like.

  5. Big text moment Embracer CEO Sees Great Potential for Legacy of Kain, Thief, Deus Ex Remakes/Remasters/Spin-Offs https://wccftech.com/embracer-ceo-sees-great-potential-for-legacy-of-kain-thief-deus-ex-remakes-remasters-spin-offs/
  6. Copyright infringement of imaginary property is not theft. There are no "stolen goods". It's just copyright infringement, with its own criminal and civil penalties but typically lax enforcement. We'll see if Embracer Group or whoever currently owns the Duke Nukem IP tries to shut down distribution and modding of a 20+ year old dead game, but they can't stop it if the people working on it are determined. There's a reason pretty much every movie and TV show is downloadable and streamable on pirate sites within hours of release: whack-a-mole doesn't work very well. Some people will get scared off by a DMCA letter, but the files are already widely available now. As for whether or not it should be linked in here, that's a question for the forum staff. Maybe the links should be removed. Just provide helpful hints instead.
  7. I heard there might be a 2002 build floating around. Anyone hear about that? That was his initial statement. He has said more than that. He should be understood to be salty as heck and ignored.
  8. Never heard of Redfall. I hope TES VI gets delayed so hard, it becomes an XS?/PS6 game.
  9. We could collectively produce a fantastic essay about what ought to be done in a new Thief installment. I doubt it will ever reach their eyes though. Unless someone from the community gets hired, which I think happened with Dishonored.
  10. Any number of those could be disabled or smoothed over to make it more palatable and more like what TDM has now. Where you can stand on top of a table in a somewhat dark room and not get caught.
  11. To my knowledge, all of today's real-time ray tracing is some variation on this: In practice, machine learning algorithms may be used (the paper in that video doesn't), and most of today's games with ray tracing continue to use rasterization for most graphics. The field is advancing quickly:
  12. I'd be cautiously unoptimistic. Didn't Thief 4 devs disrespect the original games in interviews? I would expect even less love/understanding from newer devs over 2 decades on. If a Thief 5 gets made, it should be a showcase for ray traced lighting and audio. Maybe they can get paid enough to make a good AA game and true sequel.
  13. Embracer Group is Buying Square Enix Montréal, Eidos, and Crystal Dynamics for “Only” 300 Million USD: https://wccftech.com/embracer-group-square-enix-montreal-eidos-crystal-dynamics/

      I saw this and immediately wanted them to work on a Thief 5. Pipedream probably. I think Fleetwood Mac has more of a chance letting Lindsay Buckingham back in that we getting a Thief 5.
