    2016+ CPU/GPU News

    https://www.anandtech.com/show/15044/the-amd-ryzen-threadripper-3960x-and-3970x-review-24-and-32-cores-on-7nm AMD's new 24-core and 32-core Threadrippers destroy just about everything. Not only that, but a 64-core, 128-thread version is confirmed for early next year (and a 48-core is probable). It will be interesting to see if AAA games start to use all these cores. The next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox will have 8 legit Zen 2 cores. 12-core 3900X and 16-core 3950X are "mainstream" chips, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see more games use up to 16 cores (but not as a requirement since streamers are likely to use some of those cores in the background). And if your game has parallelized enough logic to be able to use 12 or 16 cores, why not 24, 32, 48, or 64 cores? Threadripper 3 fixes up the architecture so that the "Game Mode" used on the previous chips shouldn't be needed anymore. The new sTRX4 socket was necessary to support those high core counts without starving some of the chiplets of bandwidth. Usage of 8 cores is going to be standard due to the new consoles. They might even have additional ARM cores for background tasks. So any newer (resource intensive) game should be able to utilize 8 cores. I heard that Ashes of the Singularity can use 12 cores. 16+, who knows? I want to see games that can scale to use 32, 64, or even 128 x86 cores, when appropriate.

  6. Valve has described this game as not Half Life 3. Thus the meme lives on.

    Raspberry Pi 4

    Doom 3 on Raspberry Pi 4 with the GPU overclocked to 600 (620?) MHz, up from 500 MHz. 960x540 resolution. FPS fluctuates a lot but is usually near 20. The SoC's VideoCore VI GPU can theoretically support OpenGL ES 3.1/3.2 or Vulkan 1.1, which may improve performance, but don't expect drivers to support any of that for another year or two. Maybe OpenGL ES 3.1 sooner. DarkRadiant 2.6.0 x86 is available on the Debian repository and is running.
  10. Nah, reselling digital goods that can be infinitely copied doesn't make any sense. I'll be surprised if this ends up actually benefiting anybody. Steam could just change the way they collect from EU customers.
  11. Mission 1 of T2 Dracula Reloaded has some "Moor" type guards.
  12. Netflix almost always dumps a season in one go, and that's exactly what has happened here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Crystal:_Age_of_Resistance 10 episodes all labeled August 30.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    I'm optimistic that it won't. GOG has been around for a while, and making a Steam clone is easier now since you've had years to see what works and what doesn't. Although in the case of Epic, their store lacks features and is nerfed (reviews). If anything, having the store might get in the way of making games? Where's Half Life 3?
  14. How about: there are no actual rapists in these incidents. Accusations that "sound real" aren't evidence. If your "truth" isn't good enough for you to bring to court, keep it to yourself. If you can't do that, prepare yourself for a defamation lawsuit. It was on fire the moment the inaccurate and inflammatory thread title was typed.
