Time for Tuesday news, following the same rules of yesterday's:
SALES & DEALS
Steam has two "fake" daily deals as well as a new round of weeklong deals:
SOFTWARE & DRIVERS
Ubisoft announces a new subscription service for the PC called Uplay+, launches in September 2019

AMD announces FidelityFX, Image Sharpening filter and Anti-Lag features
During its E3 2019 Next Horizon Gaming event, AMD revealed some new features that will be coming to its graphics cards. According to the red team, FidelityFX, Image Sharpening and Anti-Lag will be supported by its new GPUs; the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and the AMD Radeon RX 5700.
FidelityFX is meant to be a post-processing effect that will improve the sharpness of various surfaces. This may sound similar to an Image Sharpening filter, however games will need to natively support this feature otherwise it will not work. Still, for games that do not support FidelityFX, AMD will add a general Image Sharpening filter that can be enabled for every game.
AMD has also announced Anti-Lag. Anti-Lag basically reduces the input lag, something that will benefit those playing competitive games. The red team provided a graph in which it claims that the response input latency can be decreased by around 33% in APEX Legends and 35% in Fortnite.
>> Not all would be about the CPU and GPUs, right? Oh, and there's new drivers too, the 19.6.1
First PCIe 4.0 benchmark test coming to 3DMark later this Summer
UL Benchmarks has announced that the first PCIe 4.0 benchmark test will be coming to 3DMark later this Summer. In case you weren’t aware of, the new PCI Express 4.0 interfaces provide up to twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 3.0 and thanks to its higher bandwidth, games can transfer more data, reduce loading times, and support more complex scenes.
According to the team, the 3DMark PCI Express feature test is designed to measure the bandwidth available to your GPU over the PCIe interface. This benchmark test will help you compare bandwidth across PCIe generations with a test that’s quick and easy to use.
>> A bit pointless, maybe?
