Slightly Mad Studios says that Project Cars 'loves' DirectX 12

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 8 hours, 26 mins ago

Now that Project Cars is out, gamers across the world have been pushing their systems and consoles to the limits playing one of the best looking games ever made. But it could soon get better.

According to Slightly Mad Studios boss, Ian Bell, the team has been working on the Xbox One version of the game to optimize its performance, as it has been suffering from stuttering problems. Bell added that Project Cars "loves" DirectX 12, and that the DX12-powered version of Project Cars will run "extremely well" on the Xbox One.

 

Bell said: "With DX12 the Xbox will perform extremely well for us. With the upcoming imminent patches it's already much better. We'll need to do some work of course but the way our engine is structured lends itself to the main benefits of DX12. We never said we'd run 30 cars at night in the rain at 60. We said the game runs at 60FPS, which it does. So Gran Turismo, but it drops to 20's under heavy action in the wet at night".

Some images in this article are Not Safe For Work (NSFW): Did you ever think you would see the day in which Dan Bilzerian would 'call out' another social media playboy on their antics? Well it has happened.

Described as coming to riches thanks to the tobacco industry, Instagram 'playboy' Travers Beynon is known for posting photos of extravagant parties, bikini-clad (or less) women and plenty of other controversial pictures thrown into the mix.

 

In his latest spree, he is seen 'walking' two women by holding onto their bra straps - the image was soon deleted but a follow up stated "50 Shades of Grey' is a nursery thyme... I'm more like a '1000 Shades of Black."

ASUS set to unveil a new Android tablet line called ZenPad at Computex

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 10 hours, 21 mins ago

Computex 2015 kicks off next week, with ASUS all set to unveil a new line of Android-powered tablets called ZenPad. The new ZenPad slates will arrive in two sizes: 7-inch and 8-inch.

 

asus-set-unveil-new-android-tablet-line-called-zenpad-computex_04

 

The 7-inch ZenPad will rock a resolution of 1024x600, while the 8-inch version will bump things up to 2048x1536, with the 8-inch version sporting a 4:3 aspect ratio. The new ASUS ZenPad tablets will be powered by an Intel processor, and by the looks of the leaked press renders, we can expect a front-facing camera, front-facing stereo speakers, and a pretty damn nice design.

 

The ASUS Zenstation event takes place on June 1 in Taipei, Taiwan.

Naughty Dog rumored to soon unveil Uncharted Remastered for the PS4

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 55 mins ago

According to industry insider 'Tamaki', Naughty Dog and Sony are close to revealing a remastered version of Uncharted for the PlayStation 4, which will arrive as Uncharted Remastered.

 

naughty-dog-rumored-soon-unveil-uncharted-hd-remaster-ps4_03

 

Tamaki tweeted the tease, saying: "And now we just wait for Sony to announce Uncharted Remastered officially". With E3 2015 right around the corner, we should expect Sony to not only show off the latest build of Uncharted 4 (which I'm sure will be watered down before it hits us), but the Uncharted Remaster for the PS4.

 

Here's hoping that Uncharted Remastered includes all of the Uncharted games running at 1080p 60FPS on the PS4, anything less would be disappointing.

Colorful is aiming to become second largest GPU vendor

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 13 hours, 14 mins ago

Most people would think that ASUS or MSI would lead the pack as the largest GPU vendor, but it's actually Palit Microsystems (who also owns Gainward). Well, Colorful wants to compete at a much higher level, so the company is set to increase its shipments to over 500,000 per month this year, reports DigiTimes.

Colorful is also amping up its motherboard business, so it won't just be the GPU business that will scale going into the future. DigiTimes reports that the overall demand for video card sales has dropped, but the demand in China is still quite strong. GPU shipments for China are sitting at a very healthy 16-17 million units for 2015, with China accounting for a huge 50% of the total global GPU shipments.

 

The Chinese market is dominated by Colorful, Galaxy and ZOTAC with Colorful set to ship 500,000 units per month for 2015. Galaxy is hoping to ship somewhere between 400,000 and 500,000 units per month, with projected sales of 5 million for Colorful and Galaxy. ZOTAC is expected to ship 3 million units this year, with ASUS shipping around 5 million across the year. GIGABYTE will be shipping around 3.6 million units while MSI will be pushing out around 2.9 million units for 2015.

Apple appoints Jony Ive as the company's first Chief Design Officer

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: 13 hours, 59 mins ago

Jony Ive has been an integral part of Apple for quite sometime now, with the company recently promoting him from Senior Vice President, to Apple's first-ever Chief Design Officer.

Ive's new role as Chief Design Officer will have him "oversee the company's broader design efforts" reports Engadget, but there will be "leaders dedicated to user interfaces", the site adds. Ive has explained the move, saying that it "frees [him] up" from the usual management role, and let's him focus on design work.

 

Apple's new "spaceship" campus has had Ive's eye on design helping the futuristic new campus and its design, but this new role for Ive might hopefully change the direction of the look and design of the future iPhone.

Upcoming 'Mad Max' game gets new story trailer

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Gaming | Posted: 14 hours, 33 mins ago

Despite being in production for years, the upcoming tie-in game to 'Mad Max: Fury Road' missed the theatrical release window for the film and is not slated to hit PS4, Xbox One and PC in September to co-incide with the Blu-ray release. But with the film getting rave reviews, Avalanche Studios are keen to keep the game in the consciousness of gamers and have now released an explosive new storyline trailer.

 

 

Officially announced at E3 2013, the 'Mad Max' game was originally intended to hit Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms but now, the previous generation console versions have been abandoned.

 

'Mad Max' will be available in September.

'Point Break' remake gets first trailer

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 15 hours, 10 mins ago

If you can believe it, it's almost a quarter of a century since the release of the classic Keanu Reeves/ Patrick Swayze bro-action flick 'Point Break', which means (at least to Hollywood) that it's time for a remake. Still, wiping away that snarling cynicism, the film looks like it could be a fun action flick. Take a look at the first trailer below.

 

 

Starring relative unknowns Luke Bracey and Édgar Ramírez and directed by former cinematographer Ericson Core, Warner Bros. are betting big on 'Point Break', gifting it a generous $100m budget - roughly 4 times that of the original.

 

But really is there an audience for the film, or is this another unwanted remake, just like last year's 'Robocop'? I guess we shall see when the film hits cinemas on Christmas Day.
