By: Sean Ridgeley | More News: Gaming | Posted: 7 mins ago

NVIDIA's tech marketing guy and Editor in Chief Andrew Burnes, replying to a reader curious about SLI support for Just Cause 3, has made it known the game's engine is "incompatible with multi-GPU solutions" and, therefore, does not support SLI. This is no doubt a letdown for those who invested in the extra hardware and expected such a graphically impressive game to support the feature.




Just Cause 3 runs on Avalanche Studios' Avalanche Engine, which also powered Just Cause, Just Cause 2, and Mad Max, among other games.

By: Chris Smith | More News: Gaming | Posted: 6 hours ago

With Call of Duty has becoming a near-Christmas release staple for quite a few years now, Glen Schofield from Sledgehammer Games has taken to Twitter in order to express his excitement towards the next title release, exclaiming: "Can't talk about the game but we listened and I am so f*%#=ing stoked about this one."




An article published by Movie Pilot speculated on this new title, mentioning that Sledgehammer were once working on its own Call of Duty type title. This game was played in third-person and something similar to Uncharted in its game style, instead of the run-and-gun first-person Call of Duty that many players either love or hate.


The public feedback also totes towards a Modern Warfare title release, with the general population seemingly wanting this series to continue on due to various points based around story line, movement, weapon handling and game feel. If the stars align and this third-person possibility from Sledgehammer Games and the Modern Warfare series combine, we will certainly be presented with an interesting title come 2016.

According to the latest rumors, Apple is preparing two new MacBook Air models for 2016, something we should see unveiled at their WWDC 2016 event in June. The actual launch of the new MBA models will be in Q3 2016.




The thinner MacBook Air models would arrive in 13- and 15-inch, but the 11-inch model is still up in the air. The new models will be thinner thanks to "fully redesigned" internal components, with Apple working with its suppliers to develop these new, thinner components. Apple expanded its MacBook Air range earlier this year with the new MacBook, which featured a 12-inch Retina display and used Intel's new ultra low voltage chips for its fanless design.
