Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards & GPUs | Aug 14, 2022 8:46 PM CDT

AMD and NVIDIA are both about to announce and release their next-gen graphics cards in the coming months, but before then we've seen pricing on both sides of the GPU camp drop significantly... thanking the GPU gods.

We've already seen EVGA slice and dice the price of its high-end GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FTW3 by $1000, dropping it from $2149 down to $1149... but now the AMD's second-fastest Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, and NVIDIA's third-fastest GeForce RTX 3080 Ti are both experiencing healthy price cuts which are now dipping their toes in -30% below MSRP territory.

Our friends at Wccftech have noticed that the ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT Phantom Gaming D graphics card is now just $699, down -30% over its $999 MSRP. If you don't want to go with ASRock, Newegg has a listing for the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING OC graphics card, also $699... down from its usual $899 pricing on the site. Not bad, not bad at all...

Anthony Garreffa | CPU, APU & Chipsets | Aug 14, 2022 7:28 PM CDT

AMD's next-gen Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processors have been listed by a Canadian retailer, with the pricing coming in at under $1000 for the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor.

Canadian retailer PC-Canada lists the new AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X processors as all out of stock obviously, since AMD hasn't launched them just yet. We are probably looking at placeholder pricing for now, but we should expect pricing to be very close to these numbers on AMD's upcoming Zen 4 chips.

We are looking at around $892 for the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X, compared to the current-gen Zen 3-based Ryzen 9 5950X costing around $546 on Amazon right now (discounted by 33% from its original $799 list price). The second-fastest Zen 4-based CPU is the Ryzen 9 7900X which costs around $800. After that, we've got the Ryzen 7 7700X which is listed for around $480, while the Ryzen 5 7600X is listed for around $330.

Intel has no Arc GPUs for Arc Scavenger Hunt winners, CPUs instead

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards & GPUs | Aug 14, 2022 6:55 PM CDT

Intel kicked off its Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt in early 2021, and a rather large 18 months later we have no Arc graphics cards in the wild... meaning no Intel Arc graphics cards to give away to Arc Scavenger Hunt winners.

Intel has no Arc GPUs for Arc Scavenger Hunt winners, CPUs instead 02 | TweakTown.com

The company is now offering an alternative prize because there are simply no Intel Arc GPUs, so instead of an Intel Arc A7-series graphics card (Intel was giving Grand Prize winners an Intel Arc A770, while the first place prize was an Intel Arc A750) winners can now opt for an Intel Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K processor.

Intel sent an email to its winners, explaining to a Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt Top 300 prize winner that they would be provided with an alternative to the original hardware prize, in addition to the standard merchandise and swag prizing. The company confirms that the winners only have a few days to decide -- up to August 19 -- if you want to switch over your Arc GPU to an Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU.

Red Dead Redemption 2 sales hit 45 million, continues strong trends

Red Dead Redemption 2's total sales hit 45 million since the game released in 2018.

Red Dead Redemption 2 sales hit 45 million, continues strong trends 2 | TweakTown.com

Nearly four years after launch, Red Dead Redemption 2 has achieved powerful sales figures across all platforms. As of June 30, 2022 during Take-Two Interactive's Q1 FY23 period, Rockstar's cowboy epic has sold 45 million copies combined across digital and physical channels.

These gains are up 1 million units quarter-over-quarter and 7 million units year-over-year, and continue RDR2's trends of selling 1 million units between Q4 and Q1 periods. These sales may punctuate a sunsetting of Red Dead franchise content for some years to come; Rockstar has effectively stopped updating Red Dead Online with new meaningful content so it can focus almost exclusively on Grand Theft Auto 6, and RDR2's campaign is practically set in stone with no expansions in sight.

GIVEAWAY: Sabrent Rocket DDR5 16GB DC kit & Rocket 4 Plus G 2TB SSD 888 | TweakTown.com

Global entry! We have teamed up with Sabrent to give away two of its newest products. The details on each are listed below, and both would make for a great addition to an upcoming gaming PC build.

1) Rocket DDR5 16GB 4800MHz DC Kit

One winner will take home a 32GB Sabrent Rocket DDR5 16GB 4800MHz dual-channel memory kit (worth $270). We recently reviewed these memory modules and found them to be able to hit a very impressive 6800MHz OC at C40.

It seems like DDR4 has ruled the roost forever. Finally, new motherboards and architectures have allowed memory to grow wings with the advent of DDR5. Improved clock speeds promise up to twice the bandwidth of DDR4, all with lower voltage for better efficiency. To further help with that last bit, DDR5 has on-board power management to reduce motherboard cost and complexity.

2) Rocket 4 Plus G 2TB gamers SSD

The second winner will take home an unreleased product from Sabrent, due for release in September. What are we talking about? The Rocket 4 Plus G 2TB gamers SSD (worth $300), ready for Microsoft's DirectStorage API, with Sabrent's new O₂ firmware, which the company says is "specially engineered to elevate our cutting-edge hardware to all-new levels. Sustain high levels of performance throughout your long gaming session, without ever missing a beat. Your drive's health is intelligently maintained seamlessly in the background".

GIVEAWAY: Sabrent Rocket DDR5 16GB DC kit & Rocket 4 Plus G 2TB SSD 2 | TweakTown.com

The new Rocket 4 Plus G is ready for take-off: our state-of-the-art O₂ GO firmware helps launch the fastest storage - on or off the planet - to unprecedented heights. Never let your personal gaming adventure be cut short or hampered by glitchy playback. This is one SSD that can keep up with whatever you throw at it. Endurance is the name of the game and it will never let you down.

NetEase poaches more devs as industry hurtles towards live games

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Aug 14, 2022 4:02 PM CDT

Chinese games juggernaut NetEase is attracting some of gaming's top talent as the industry pivots towards free-to-play live games.

NetEase poaches more devs as industry hurtles towards live games 1 | TweakTown.com

Free-to-play mobile markets are big money-makers for gaming, and major publishers like Take-Two, EA, Activision-Blizzard, and Ubisoft want in on the action. Even Sony, who isn't accustomed to standalone free-to-play service games, wants to release 12 live games by 2025. This has triggered even stronger competition in a space dominated by monetization giants like NetEase and Tencent, and as a result, these overseas titans are pushing back by creating new dev teams that attract some of gaming's biggest talent.

Just a bit ago, Hiroyuki Kobayashi left Capcom after nearly three decades to join NetEase. Kobayashi served as producer at Capcom for 27 years and helped create and ship some of the company's most popular and best-selling games across franchises like Dragon's Dogma, Resident Evil, and Devil May Cry. Kobayashi will serve as a producer at NetEase to help fuel the publisher's mighty live game efforts.

Netflix's video game venture may not actually pay off

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Aug 14, 2022 3:04 PM CDT

Netflix is spending even more on video games throughout 2022, but the plan may not actually pay off as intended.

Netflix's video game venture may not actually pay off 65 | TweakTown.com

As Netflix loses more subscribers than it ever has before (it lost nearly 1 million subscribers in Q2) the company is exploring new ways to spark subscriber growth and retention. The streamer is taking inspiration from the games industry for its latest business proposition.

The plan is simple: Netflix wants to give all subscribers a bunch of games. As an added perk, paying Netflix subscribers get free access to two dozen mobile games and there's plans to expand to consoles and PCs in the future. Netflix is also bumping the number of available games to 50. Netflix has purchased indie studios to make quality-driven first-party games for its service and promised no in-game microtransactions (although on the same token it plans to add advertisements to lower-cost Netflix subscriptions).
