Nvidia and AMD GPU cryptocurrency demand to rise again... and you can thank mother nature

Added: 04.07.2018 3:09 | 1233 views | 0 comments

Graphics card and ASIC miner orders are to see a sudden short-lived surge due to heavy flooding in the Sichuan province in China. As reported by Chinese-language news outlet, Economic Daily News, the area has been prime real estate for cryptocurrency miners, and is the location of 70% of China’s mining systems.

There have been constant reports over the last few months of graphics card shipments reducing due to lacklustre demand, and that has been great news for gamers finally being able to pick up graphics cards for even less than MSRP. That comes only months after prices skyrocketed due to ludicrously high cryptocurrency values and memory shortages.

GPU pricing seems pretty steady for the time being, and let’s hope it stays that way until new cards arrive. Here are the around.

Various graphics card manufacturers, MSI, TUL, and Gigabyte, all expected massive shipment drops month-on-month, roughly amounting to a . Gigabyte also told investors to expect large drops in demand and average selling price over the next quarter. Genesis Mining GPUs

But that might be changing in the short-term if damage to mining operations is as serious as some reports make out. The flooding has reportedly damaged tens of thousands of mining systems, notes the report via , which has also caused the overall hashrate worldwide to drop considerably.

Steam link unable to connect to PC

Added: 04.07.2018 2:29 | 1322 views | 0 comments

Whenever I connect via steam link to PC, it brings up the Big Picture mode and then hangs and finally disconnects. On the host PC where the games are running the Big Picture mode is stuck and if I click on the screen Windows pops up a dialog box saying 'Steam Client Bootstrapper is not responding'. I have to kill the program and steam restarts. However, I can't play games on steam link anymore. I have tried several things... updating to Beta, downgrading from Beta, steam link factory reset,...

Far: Lone Sails' solo journey is far from lonely

Added: 04.07.2018 0:00 | 1290 views | 0 comments


A moment of calm. The wind is doing the work, blowing my rickety vehicle along a flat stretch. With no need to be inside, repeating the frenetic cycle of feeding the engine, full-body-pushing the enormous button to send it roaring to life and venting steam to prevent it exploding from its own heat, I'm standing on the roof watching the world go by. It's quiet.
When I drop back down into the guts of the car, something's on fire.
So it goes in Far: Lone Sails. The game follows exactly one trip, and takes place almost entirely within its vehicle. It's not the reliable car that we use in our day-to-day lives, and it's not the obliging horse that we so often use to get around in video games. It's the complete opposite of fast travel. There are no objectives or quests where you're going or where you're coming from.

If Ubisoft wants to cling on to Clancy, it's time to talk politics

Added: 03.07.2018 19:47 | 1211 views | 0 comments


How do you duck a question about the politics of a game which pits a citizen militia against a corrupt government in modern-day Washington DC? Well, you could start by talking about the weather. "I loved the coldness of the first game, and to be able to go to DC and actually get to feel the humidity and hot summer of East Coast weather," The Division 2's creative director Terry Spiers to Polygon at E3, when pressed about what it meant to stage an armed uprising in the capital of his own country. "That's what I'm most excited about."
This kind of chipper, non-committal platitude has become as natural as breathing for Ubisoft, even as its various Clancy properties bury their expensively accessorised noses in topics like the South American narcotics trade or the ethics of torture. It's all rather odd when you consider the pride, not to say enormous smugness, Tom Clancy himself took in the links between his stories and the shadow realm of superpower relations and national security. on TV in 1998, for instance, arguing for a change of law to permit the assassination of heads of state with reference to his 1996 door-stopper Executive Orders. in a memorably unsympathetic Washington Post profile, boasting of the "half-million" calls he received from admiring reporters in the aftermath of Operation Desert Storm.
With their starchy casts of alpha nerds and special operators, visions of an America that is at once wargod and underdog and steamy accounts of missile launches and fleet manoeuvres, Clancy's books were warmly embraced by the military establishment. Colin Powell - former US secretary of state and one of the minds behind the bogus case for Saddam's secret WMDs - once declared that "a lot of what I know about warfare I learned from reading Tom". Ronald Reagan was also a fan: while negotiating with the USSR in Reykjavik, he recommended Red Storm Rising to Margaret Thatcher for its "excellent picture of the Soviet Union's intentions and strategy". Clancy, who never served in the armed forces thanks to acute near-sightedness, reveled in all this, name-dropping high rank contacts to reporters and railing against peaceniks and grifter politicians in speeches at academies and bases. You wonder what he'd have made of Ubisoft's determination to avoid seeing Tom Clancy games in any kind of context, to show us footage of democracies on fire while talking gaily of blue skies and "exploring a new city".

Battlefield 5 may be an Nvidia GeForce game now, but AMD ruled the closed alpha

Added: 03.07.2018 19:46 | 1309 views | 0 comments


AMD has won this battle, and Nvidia is going to have to step up its Battlefield 5 optimisations if it wants to win the war. In our testing the RX 580 massively outperforms the supposedly equivalent GTX 1060, despite BF5 now being a bought and paid for GeForce game.
The Battlefield 5 closed-alpha has just closed this very afternoon and we’ve spent a good while playing, killing, capturing, and testing graphics cards. It’s a tough life. The most interesting thing to come out of our closed alpha playtime, however, is just how differently the two mainstream GPUs from Nvidia and AMD perform.
If you want to know what the around is, you know where to come.
In general graphics testing the GTX 1060 and RX 580 regularly trade benchmark wins, but normally only by the slightest of margins. With the Battlefield 5 closed alpha, however, there is a sizeable disparity in performance, with the RX 580 some 33% faster in our tests. That’s not the only bad news for Nvidia either, as the DirectX 12 implementation in the game does its GPUs no favours either. Battlefield 5 AMD and Nvidia performance
It does really look like all the efforts that AMD put into making sure its GPU architecture was catered for, with Battlefield 1 being a flagship Radeon Gaming title, are still paying off with Battlefield 5.
