The Washington Post published a preview of the new game God of War Ragnarok, which was originally announced as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, and later also announced for the PlayStation 4.
However, the very first hours of the game showed that God of War Ragnarok is the same God of War in 2018, which was improved as much as possible, but within the limits available for playing on the PlayStation 4.
The author of the preview confirms God of War Ragnarok is very similar to a PlayStation 4 game ported to the PlayStation 5. He also added that it’s clear that it doesn’t take full advantage of Sony’s cutting-edge technology.
The author couldn’t go into details before the embargo was lifted, but stated that God of War Ragnarok would be an interesting follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2018 blockbuster with slight changes in terms of level design, pacing, combat systems: except we waited four years to get it.”
The game was clearly made first for the PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 5 is equipped with a solid state drive that many hoped would be the end of episodes where the protagonist squeezes through the cracks, thus hiding the loading of levels. But in the first few hours, Kratos and his son Atreus are squeezing through the cracks in almost every game location. One hour spent playing the game confirms that it was developed primarily for the PlayStation 4.

God of War Ragnarok is set to release on November 9th for PS4 and PS5.
The first laptop with GeForce RTX 40. Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 new generation lit up on the Web
The first laptop based on the GeForce RTX 40 line of graphics cards has appeared on the Web. The model is called the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16.
Judging by the photo, the new M16 looks little different from its predecessor. In particular, the same thin frames have been preserved, which not every gaming laptop can boast of. For the current model, Asus is talking about 94% display space.
The current ROG Zephyrus M16 is equipped with a Core i9-12900H CPU and offers graphics cards from RTX 3050 Ti to RTX 3080 Ti. We can expect that the new model will have approximately the same configuration, but with new CPU and GPU.
Recall that the announcement of the mobile GeForce RTX 40, as well as the Raptor Lake mobile processors, is expected at CES 2023. A laptop will probably also be presented there.
Will the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti stay for at least another year? Nvidia is ending production of almost all mid-range graphics cards.
Nvidia has decided to completely stop the production of several models of video cards of past generations.
We are talking about the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 cards. The source does not have any details, but we already know that there is an RTX 3050 to replace the RTX 2060/2060 Super, but the GTX 1660 cards there are simply no replacements. The source doesn’t mention the GTX 1660 Ti, though, so it’s possible Nvidia is keeping this card alone to close the hole in the sub-$300 segment.
In particular, in Europe now for the GTX 1660/1660 Super/1660 Ti they are asking for about the same money: from about 230-240 euros. At the same time, the cheapest RTX 3050 now costs 300 euros. No more affordable cards will appear in the RTX 30 line, and it’s not worth waiting for cheap RTX 40 cards in the foreseeable future, because even the RTX 4060 is supposedly released only next summer.
For comparison, AMD has a modern Radeon RX 6600 in the sub-$300/Euro segment, which is much more powerful than any GTX 1660, and along with the RTX 3050.
When the new Intel processor is really better than its predecessor. Core i7-1370P parameters appeared
Intel has not yet introduced most of the Raptor Lake family, including mobile CPUs. But today the Core i7-1370P lit up on the Web.
Geekbench indicates that this is a 14-core processor with support for 20 threads, that is, we are talking about six large cores and eight small ones. It is worth noting here that this is a configuration identical to the Core i7-1280P, but the Core i7-1270P has 14 cores. That is, the new Intel CPU will be better than its predecessor, including in terms of the number of cores.
In addition, the frequencies will become higher. The maximum frequency will reach 5 GHz versus 4.8 GHz for the models of the Alder Lake line mentioned above. But the base frequency relative to the Core i7-1280P will increase by 100 MHz, up to 1.9 GHz, but relative to the Core i7-1270P it will decrease by 300 MHz.
