Google ended its Stadia promotion with Cyberpunk 2077 ahead of schedule due to “overwhelmingly positive reception.” About it on Reddit reported representative of the company.
The action was planned to be held until December 17, 2020. Google offered to pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 and get a month’s Stadia Pro subscription, Chromecast, and a Stadia controller. This kit costs $ 99 without a game. A company representative said that users will receive orders placed before December 13th. In Canada, the deadline was reduced to December 10.
The main reason for the early closing of the action was the excitement at the release of the game. Pre-orders only, excluding first day sales, in full paid off development cost. The game was released on all fairly productive gaming platforms.
For many, a Stadia release is the most affordable way to get consistent frame rates. On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, players are experiencing performance issues due to poor optimization. New generation consoles have just launched, and shipments for everyone lacks… Also in short supply are powerful Nvidia video cards and AMD processors. In cloud services, the player does not need powerful hardware – only a stable Internet connection.
Google Stadia is not officially represented in Russia. To use it, the player needs an American Google account, an activation code (it comes with a starter kit) and a VPN. The recommended connection speed is 30 Mbps. You can play on TV with Chromecast, Pixel phones, and Chrome. Potential delays due to VPN usage and distance to servers.
Anbernic to release $300 Windows 10 handheld game console in July
The Chinese company Anbernic will launch the Win600 handheld game console based on the AMD Athlon processor with Radeon Vega 3 graphics in July. The novelty will receive Windows 10 Home and Linux-based Steam OS support, as well as a price tag of $ 300.
Promised 8 GB of RAM, but only in single-channel mode. There will also be 128 or 256 GB in the form of an M.2 2242 SSD. The device will receive a design typical of such consoles, which includes a small screen, D-Pad, analog sticks, control buttons and triggers. Also, the novelty will receive active cooling, stereo speakers, as well as headphone and microphone outputs.
It seems that such a console would be well suited for running retro games or streaming games in the clouds. Given that the hardware is rather weak, it is unlikely that she will be able to run the same Cyberpunk 2077.
Earlier, we recall, AOKZOE introduced the A1 console with a much more powerful processor and graphics.
The GeForce RTX 3060 has taken the first place in popularity among Steam gamers. GeForce RTX 3050 is in the top 3
Steam has updated the statistics on the use of PC components by gamers, and the GeForce RTX 3060 came out on top in the June rating of video cards. Moreover, in two versions at once: mobile and desktop. Together, the two variants of these 3D accelerators are installed on over 5.5% of Steam users’ PCs.
In third place is the GeForce RTX 3050. The monthly increase is small – 0.18%, but this model has consistently grown in audience since the beginning of the year – and here is the result. Another discrete 3D card in Steam’s June Top 10 is the GeForce GTX 1660, all the rest are CPU-integrated GPUs.
Where is AMD? The best of the rest is in 33rd place in the ranking. Steam users have long preferred Nvidia AMD, and now the situation has not changed.
As for the central processors, then Intel strengthened its position somewhat – plus 0.68% in Linux-based systems and plus 1.28% in Windows-based systems. AMD, respectively, loses.
