How many days until AMDs Big Navi presentation?



Around the Network

Google is taunting me. It made me relive what I did on this day 4 years ago in pictures.

I built my current PC on that day.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

October 28, so 12 days to go.



They have been pretty tame about their announcement. Note the "Best of Radeon" instead of "Best of class".

Everything points to Big Navi being comfortably below the 3080.

Wouldn't best in class meaning it would be beating the 3090?

As such, I do think it will be competitive to the 3080 (slightly below the 3080, but nowhere near comfortably so) in the end. If the price is right, I'm sure it can be a very interesting option compared to the 3080.

Leaked slide explains AMD Ryzen 5000 series memory overclocking

https://videocardz.com/newz/leaked-slide-explains-amd-ryzen-5000-series-memory-overclocking



Looks like if you want to go ham on Ram, AMD recommends 4000mhz. I still wouldn't spend too much on Ram speeds though. A good latency + good speeds should be plenty imo. But if you have the money...

Looks like they've imnproved their memory support once again, but I'm not sure about the statement in that slide regarding Zen2 and 3800MHz memories, the results when going above 3600 (or 3733 with some memory OC'ing) weren't good.

I prefer an event with no hype that leaves me satisfied than a very hyped event that leaves me disappointed, and AMD did a lot of the latter.

New Red Dead Redemption 2 Mod introduces new creatures & monsters
https://www.dsogaming.com/pc-performance-analyses/new-red-dead-redemption-2-mod-introduces-new-creatures-monsters/
Red Dead Redemption 2 came out last year on the PC. Since then, and contrary to GTA5, we haven’t really seen a lot of mods for it, which is kind of disappointing. Thankfully, though, modder ‘HermanDude’ has released a pretty cool mod that adds some new creatures and monsters to hunt.
(...list of 10 omsters/creatures...)
As HermanDude noted, this mod is in its early stage of development. Thus, players may encounter some bugs and glitches, and may experience some game crashes.

You can download the Red Dead Redemption 2 Misterix Mod from here. Do also note that you’ll need the Map Editor in order to play this mod. Below you can also find a video showcasing the mod in action.

Modders are making a 'direct sequel' to Dark Souls with a whole new map
https://www.pcgamer.com/modders-are-making-a-direct-sequel-to-dark-souls-with-a-whole-new-map/
Dark Souls is getting another sequel, though not by From Software. Modder Grimrukh, who released Daughters of Ash, the most popular mod for the original Dark Souls, has pulled together a team of other modders to make something even bigger. It's not just a transformation of the original Dark Souls, but a whole new game built from its pieces. It's called Dark Souls: Nightfall.
Based on the description on Grimrukh's site, Nightfall sounds like a fascinating project. It's a "direct sequel" to Dark Souls with "expanded lore," but Grimrukh says it's not meant to clash with the original story. And it has a whole new world map—but unlike a lot of ambitious mod projects (say, Fallout: Miami) it's not actually using new graphical assets. "I’m using a mixture of physically rearranging the areas of Lordran and building new areas out of existing map pieces and collisions," Grimrukh explains.

Friday news, the end:

Borderlands 3 is getting another season pass in November
https://www.pcgamer.com/borderlands-3-is-getting-another-season-pass-in-november/
If you're not quite ready to toss Borderlands 3 aside yet, you'll soon have some more excuses to shoot and loot your way through the galaxy. Season Pass 2 is coming next month, letting you get your hands on a pair of add-ons that sound like they'll be a bit different from the more story-driven DLC like Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck.
>> I know it's not new, but "regular" games having several season passes feels wrong on so many levels...

Legends of Aria studio is working on a Viking-inspired 'dark fantasy survival game'
https://www.pcgamer.com/legends-of-aria-studio-is-working-on-a-viking-inspired-dark-fantasy-survival-game/

Getting too scared in Amnesia: Rebirth will have story consequences
https://www.pcgamer.com/getting-too-scared-in-amnesia-rebirth-will-have-story-consequences/
Amnesia: Rebirth is less than a week away, and if the handful of teasers and brief trailers have left you hungry for more early glimpses, here's a meatier bite courtesy of the PlayStation Blog and developer Frictional Games. It's a 17-minute developer walkthrough where the constant (but mostly interesting) commentary does slightly diminish the scares.

Hearthstone's 'Fall Reveal' teases a trip to Darkmoon Faire (plus some free packs)
https://www.pcgamer.com/hearthstones-fall-reveal-teases-a-trip-to-darkmoon-faire-plus-some-free-packs/
Blizzard is teasing a "Hearthstone Fall Reveal" coming next week that will feature several major announcements and analysis from designers Pat Nagle, John McIntyre, and John Yang, who will go in-depth with host Brian Kibler on each new bit of business.

Nerfs coming next week to Hearthstone's Evocation and Solarian Prime
https://www.pcgamer.com/nerfs-coming-next-week-to-hearthstones-evocation-and-solarian-prime/
Today, snuck out alongside the news that next week we're going to get a Fall Reveal event detailing the next wave of content coming this year, were some patch notes for incoming nerfs. The cards affected are some of the most RNG-heavy designs that the game has ever seen (which really is saying something).

A murderous Red Chocobo is wrecking Final Fantasy 14 players
https://www.pcgamer.com/a-murderous-red-chocobo-is-wrecking-final-fantasy-14-players/
Chocobos have been in Final Fantasy 14 for years. They're mounts that can also join you in combat. They're cute. They go "Kweh!" It's hard not to love a chocobo.
The red chocobo is different. Scroll through the Final Fantasy 14 subreddit and every few posts you'll find a meme about how scary the red chocobo is, thanks to a recent patch that adds a new area, the Bozjan Southern Front, where red chocobos can spawn. They are absolutely murdering people.

Bungie announces date for next raid and departure of Deej
https://www.pcgamer.com/bungie-announces-date-for-next-raid-and-departure-of-deej/
With Destiny 2: Beyond Light now less than a month away, the latest installment of This Week at Bungie contains a couple of big pieces of news, one personal and one professional. First, the professional: Bungie announced that the new raid coming in Beyond Light, and the traditional Race to World First, will kick off at precisely 10 am PT/1 pm ET on November 21. That gives players more than a month to prepare themselves—but the studio also warned that the process of determining the winners will be a little bit different this time around.

A decade after launch, StarCraft 2 development is winding down
https://www.pcgamer.com/a-decade-after-launch-starcraft-2-development-is-winding-down/
In the decade since it launched, StarCraft 2 has become the RTS scene. It's just not had much competition. The RTS genre is in dire straits, but StarCraft seems to exist in a bubble where people still want to gobble up resources and fling little units at each other. Blizzard's been able to build a successful esport around it and churn out the updates for years, but things are finally winding down.

A Total War Saga: Troy is getting a photo mode next week
https://www.pcgamer.com/a-total-war-saga-troy-is-getting-a-photo-mode-next-week/
It is not uncommon for me to lose control of a Total War battle because I'm trying to snap the perfect picture, desperately and pointlessly hoping to recreate those impossibly lovely bullshots every game is accompanied by. Now that's going to be a lot easier, at least in A Total War Saga: Troy, as it's the first in the series to get a photo mode.

Before we wrap it all, let's check what's going on at GOG and Steam:

+GOG

+Steam

Until next time, have a happy and gaming weekend.

Looking through the Steam SEGA sale and Yakuza 0 for £3.74. Nice! Cheers for the write-up.



Here's something weird. According to one of the more reliable leakers...

XSX
Front-End:
RDNA 1
Render-Back-Ends:
RDNA 2
Compute Units:
RDNA1
RT:
RDNA2



Now DF did mention on their Hot Chips that RDNA 2 chip in the Series X did have some resemblance to RDNA 1 such as the Compute Units. I'll be interested to see whether or not the Ps5 has a similar configuration and more importantly... Whether or not Big Navi does. Take it with a grain of salt of course.
