NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 ‘Next-Gen Gaming’ Graphics Cards Featuring Ada Lovelace GPUs Rumored For Early Q3 Launch

https://wccftech.com/nvidia-geforce-rtx-40-next-gen-gaming-graphics-cards-early-q3-2022-launch-rumor/

The sooner, the better for all.

By the way, yesterday I was surprised when you didn't post Ada's block diagram leaked by kopite, and I'm more surprised you haven't posted it today either. For thos wondering, it's here: https://wccftech.com/nvidia-ada-lovelace-geforce-rtx-40-gaming-gpu-detailed-double-the-rops-huge-l2-cache-50-more-fp32-units-than-ampere-4th-gen-tensor-3rd-gen-rt-cores/

AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ CPU Specs & Price Rumors: Ryzen 9 7950X 24/16 Core Up To 5.4 GHz, Ryzen 9 7900X 12 Core Up To 5.3 GHz, Ryzen 7 7800X 8 Core Up To 5.2 GHz, Ryzen 5 7600X 6 Core Up To 5.1 GHz

https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-7000-zen-4-raphael-desktop-cpu-prices-specs-rumors-ryzen-9-7950x-7900x-ryzen-7-7800x-ryzen-5-7600x/

Personally I will be sticking with my 5950x for quite a while as while these CPUs will no doubt be powerful, for gaming, you probably won't need so much horse power unless you are CPU limited. The great thing about AM4 is that if you bought an older CPU like say a 3600, if you wait a few years, the CPU prices of the 5000 series will go down drastically. So you can do an in place upgrade to say a 5800X3D for a very cheap price.

High clocks all around and I dount we'll see more than 16 cores.

I gotta say, tho, that I'm a bit disappointed with AMD because it looks like they'll repeat the strategy of Zen3 and leave us without a 7700 CPU nor the lower ones until... well, maybe until Intel catches them again and they're forced to.

And yes, it will probably be better to wait because, with the need of the still expensive and hard to find DDR5 RAM, I don't think the sales will be as big as those of Zen3, and AMD may be forced to lower the prices a bit to make the new platform more attractive and get more people on board (wishful thinking, I know).

Intel Arc Desktop Gaming Graphics Cards Confirmed Through Latest Drivers: Alchemist Lineup To Include A310, A380, A580, A750, A770, Pro A40, Pro A50

https://wccftech.com/intel-arc-a770-a750-a580-a380-a310-pro-a50-a40-alchemist-desktop-graphics-cards-confirmed/

Releasing never

At this point, I wonder if, given the "close" release of Ada and RDNA3, Intel will try to counter that by starting to talk about Battlemage, before Alchemist even launches worldwide. It would be hilarious.

Good catch, must have missed it.

And yea, we are going up in both price and tdp (high end) for the CPUs although I will say that AMD isn't fully to blame since TSMC has been upping their cost while Intel owns their own fabs. For AMD's sake, the performance better be worth the prices they are asking cause if the rumour is legit, we are going from the $199 price of the 3600 to $350 for the 7600X for 6 core 12 thread part.

The 5600X was already $299. It's another jump in price, but not the biggest one.

And yes, TSMC has raised its prices and all that, but AMD could still have other CPUs at launch to catter the needs of more users and budgets. But no, they go with the same ones as the 5000 series and f*ck those that don't like it.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

AMD will bring 2 different sockets to the market for Epyc, SP5 for high-end servers, and SP6 for low-power servers.

While SP5 can go the full 400W and 96 Genoa/128 Bergamo cores, SP6 will be limited to 225W and 32 Genoa/64 Bergamo cores. It also comes with just 6 memory channels, half of what SP5 will bring.

While this is supposedly for low-power servers, I hope AMD will bring this socket to the desktop too, as it would be a great HEDT platform, a market the Threadripper has now outgrown. Zen 2 Threadripper is EOL right now and these look like a more viable replacement to those chips, as Zen 3 Threadripper has gotten too big and too powerful for most customers, hence why AMD made them pure OEM Workstation chips.

MODS, EMULATORS & FAN PROJECTS

New The Witcher 3 Mod restores cut content/features
https://www.dsogaming.com/mods/new-the-witcher-3-mod-restores-cut-content-features/

Going into more details, the Buffed Monster Tracker displays CDPR’s logic, showing on the minimap when and which monster is supposed to be buffed.
This mod also restores an option to turn 24hr clock format, and weather indicators in the minimap. Moreover, it restores icons for Noonwraith, Nightwraith, Wraith, Werewolf, Alghoul, Ice Giant.
As said, the mod also adds some new icons. Thus, you can expect new icons for Drowner, Rotfiend, Grave Hag, Water Hag, Hound of the Wild Hunt and Ice Troll.

Zelda Ocarina of Time Remake in Unreal Engine 4 now supports co-op mode
https://www.dsogaming.com/videotrailer-news/zelda-ocarina-of-time-remake-in-unreal-engine-4-now-supports-co-op-mode/
Last month, we informed you about a new version of the Zelda Ocarina of Time Fan Remake in Unreal Engine 4. And today, CryZENx shared a new video, showcasing its latest build in co-op mode.
According to CryZENx, players can play co-op from the Kokiri forest until beating Gohma. And, as we can see from this video, it appears that this co-op mode works pretty well.

Go adventuring with your favorite Elden Ring NPCs and Bosses with this mod
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/go-adventuring-with-your-favorite-elden-ring-npcs-and-bosses-with-this-mod/
A pretty slick mod for Elden Ring turns some of the fan-favorite bosses and NPCs into summonable companions, tweaking the range of areas where you can summon a spirit so that they become Skyrim-style followers rather than occasional allies like the default spirit ashes.
So if you've ever wanted characters like Melina, Sellen, Millicent, Ranni, or Blaidd the Half-Wolf to hang out with you as you tromp about the lands between, well, now's your time. Rebalancing and empowering these characters in unique ways, modder Satoshi98 has given them behaviors and powers more appropriate to the general Elden Ring experience rather than how they appear otherwise, and they don't have the glow of spirit ash summons either.

The D64ifier Mod makes all the classic Doom games look like Doom 64
https://www.dsogaming.com/mods/the-d64ifier-mod-makes-all-the-classic-doom-games-look-like-doom-64/
Doom 64 fans, here is something special for you today. Cryonaut has shared a new version of The D64ifier, a mod that attempts to make all the classic Doom games look like Doom 64.
The D64ifier supports Doom, Doom II, Final Doom, No Rest for the Living, and most other vanilla mapsets. As such, you can basically transform these classic shooters, and make them more atmospheric (that is of course if you are fans of Doom 64’s visuals).
Going into more details, Cryonaut released new versions of the Core Module, the Monster Module and a new High-Resolution Texture Pack. The Texture Pack, which is optional, contains every D64ifier texture, upscaled to 400%, along with matching specular maps and normal maps.
