  • Despite id Software’s promising otherwise, this week it has confirmed that Doom Eternal will not deliver a true 4K experience on Google Stadia . It’s worth noting that the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro versions of Doom Eternal will also be upsampled to 4K, but the PC version’s highest “Ultra-Nightmare” setting will support true 4K performance. “We couldn’t be happier to be bringing Doom Eternal to Stadia, and are thrilled to announce that the game will be capable of running at true 4K resolut

  • Intel has redesigned PC power supplies (PSUs) to make them more efficient, not to mention more affordable, while shrinking down cabling and connectors to make the internals of the computer neater and tidier in general. Intel’s new type of PSU uses its ATX12VO spec, which stands for ATX 12 Volt Only. As that name indicates, it will employ a single rail (12V) as opposed to the multiple rails in existing power supplies for PCs. The chip giant said: “Intel plans to continue to publish the ATX Multi

  • We’ve heard plenty of chatter around why E3 2020 may be on its last legs – and now it looks like the massive gaming expo has been canceled. Originally slated for June of this year, E3 2020 was plagued with behind-the-scenes disagreements, high-profile dropouts – we’re looking at you, Sony – and a domino effect of other technology and gaming conferences being canceled in response to the COVID-19 virus. It may be we never know quite how E3 2020 would have turned out, though by all accounts it was

  • Just a day ago, we spotted some system requirements for Doom Eternal that were way higher than we expected. Official Doom Eternal system requirements have now been revealed on Bethesda’s blog, and they’re much more reasonable than the brief requirements that surfaced earlier. The Doom Eternal system requirements are kind of all over the place, and it’s hard to nail down the perfect system to play the game. For instance, the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X has a 3.5GHz base clock and just 4 single-threaded cor

  • Ubisoft has thrown its weight behind Nvidia by pledging to “fully support” the company’s beleaguered GeForce Now cloud gaming service. Since GeForce Now left its beta period just a few weeks ago, dozens of games have been removed from its catalogue from a number of high-profile publishers. Ubisoft, however, has thrown Nvidia a much-needed lifeline by reaffirming its support for the controversy-sparking service. “We believe it’s a leading edge service that gives current and new PC players a high

  • We bought the cheapest smartwatch we could find from Aliexpress – the the M4 (which looks a lot like the Xiaomi Mi Band 4). The watch has a 0.96-inch colour screen (unlikely to be OLED) covered by plastic and it’s about the size of Xiaomi’s popular smartband. The watch is compatible with the Fitpro app, which can be found on Google Play and the Apple App Store . It’s not all bad though, because the app seems to actually work, allowing you to easily link the M4 smartwatch to your phone. Just bear

  • Following hot on the heels of Altered Carbon’s second season, Netflix has released a trailer for Altered Carbon: Resleeved, an animated spin-off movie from acclaimed writer Dai Satō (Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex).

  • Launched way back in February 2015, the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R were meant to bridge the gap between professional camera bodies and enthusiast ones. It’s not just the R5 that could see the production of the 5DS line stopped – the EOS 5D Mark IV proved to be a more popular camera for Canon fans, outselling the 5DS globally. At one time, a model called the EOS 5D Mark V even appeared in the company’s internal roadmap. The 5DS and the 5DS R are practically identical in every way, with the sole

  • Call of Duty is expanding its repertoire, it seems, with a new, free-to-play battle royale game called Warzone that could be on the cusp of release to the masses – for 150 players at once. Chaos’ video informs us that Warzone is a “free-to-play, battle royale game […] that you can download and play for free.” So far, so Fortnite – and Activision is no doubt seeking to cash in on the battle royale trend in a similar vein to Respawn’s Apex Legends, which launched in early 2019.

The live-action Star Wars TV show on Disney Plus was already shooting again back when season 1 premiered in November 2019.

  • Unsurprisingly, considering Halo: Combat Evolved is an older game based on the same engine, the game that kickstarted the Halo franchise also managed resolutions of 7,680 × 4,320 at a rock-solid 60 fps. Even so, during our playthrough at 8K resolution, our framerate counter never dropped beneath 60 fps. At 8K resolution, Halo: Combat Evolved looked simply stunning. So, a 4.00x factor for a 2560 x 1440 resolution monitor results in a 5120 x 2880 Dynamic Super Resolution. Sadly, we couldn’t get DS

  • Respawn Entertainment enthralled Apex Legends fans earlier this year when, prior to the launch of Season 4, they announced a new Legend called Forge but promptly had him killed by the actual new Legend, Revenant. It was a nice bit of storytelling that proved to be an appropriately dramatic and surprising way to introduce the sinister character of Revenant. But Respawn has now revealed that it wasn’t just trying to entertain the community with this bait-and-switch, it was also trying to mislead d
