Techland has released several Dying Light DLC packages for gamers, and it's possible an expansion could be developed one day. Even if the 4.5 million figure isn't actual game copies sold, it's still a major success for the studio.

 

"Sales [we] count later - we need time to calculate the sales and returns and so on," said Pawel Marchewka, CEO of Techland, in a statement to Eurogamer. "Unique users means all the unique users we calculated on the server playing the game for significant number of time. Sales might be slightly less because that includes also secondary sales."

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 5 hours, 35 mins ago

Computex 2015 - Walking into the SAPPHIRE meeting room at Computex this year, we were greeted with a wall filled with 16 monitors, each running 1920x1080. This means we have a total of 7680x4320, all using AMD's multi-GPU SLS technology.

SAPPHIRE's video cards of choice were four of their own FirePro W7100 cards, with each FirePro GPU running four of the 1080p monitors found on the wall. An impressive demo to say the last, but too bad they weren't playing Crysis on this setup, eh?!

Another card that will be a favorite with gamers and enthusiasts will be the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Omega Edition, which doesn't have locked-in Base and Boost Clocks just yet. We do know that it will come with their IceStorm cooler with EKO fans, Carbon ExoArmor and PowerBoost technologies.

ZOTAC displays their GeForce GTX 980 Ti Arctic Storm at Computex 2015

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 5 hours, 54 mins ago

Computex 2015 - ZOTAC has impressed me of late with their great entries into the GPU world with their take on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980, but now that the GM200-based GTX 980 Ti is here, we have four new cards from ZOTAC based on the GTX 980 Ti.

Starting with their new GeForce GTX 980 Ti Arctic Storm, which features hybrid air and liquid cooling mixed with the company's impressive carbon ExoArmor technology.

When it comes to specs, ZOTAC has a Base Clock of 1025MHz while the Boost Clock cranks it up to 1114MHz. This should reach a fair bit higher when you play with the card under watercooling.
