The upcoming ‘big PlayStation remake’ is reportedly Chrono Cross
A remake of Square Enix‘s classic RPG Chrono Cross is reportedly in development for multiple platforms.

Well, others will be excited about it but, as someone that didn't play the original, this "big" remake falls flat on me.

It's also interesting how much market share Intel lost, because all those were from low CPU sales. We'll have to wait and see if Alder Lake changes that trent.

Tbh I get the feeling Alder Lake S won't make much of a difference overall. One of the big reasons to upgrade your system is to get a new GPU as you don't want a CPU bottleneck holding you back. This is why the 5000 series had such perfect timing when it launched with Ampere and RDNA 2. You got class leading performance in every area in terms of CPUs and many people were upgrading in anticipation of getting those new GPUs. The GPU shortage while severe, people still had hope.

But now it feels like there really isn't a reason for many to upgrade. Those that wanted to upgrade to a new CPU probably would have done it already and then you combine the motherboard prices of Z690, the marginal increase in performance compared to Ryzen 5000 and the very expensive prices of DDR5 while also being extremely hard to find, it's kinda becoming a meh launch overall. Especially as we do have Zen 4 and Raptor Lake on the horizon which should have a significant performance advantage and Lovelace/RDNA 3 will be launching next year as well to drive more incentive.

There are always people willing to upgrade to the latest tech available, and Alder Lake gives them that.

I'm not sure Raptor Lake will bring enough improvements to justify the wait. Zen 4 could be another story but, given that it's rumored to still be a PCIe Gen 4 processor, it could fail to atract some of the more demanding users. We'll see if the performance jump is enough to make them forget that, or if the leaks aren't true and it's also a Gen 5.0 processor.

Personally, I wouldn't mind upgrading the CPU+Mobo+Ram now and wait until I could get my hands on a GPU at reasonable prices, but I know I'm an odd ball here. Shame Black Friday hasn't brought the deals I hoped for.

Please excuse my bad English.
