Microsoft has released a cumulative update for the Windows 10 operating system with many fixes and improvements.

Update KB5004296 is available for the three most recent versions of Windows 10 – 2004 (May 2020), 20H2 (November 2020) and 21H1 (May 2021) via Windows Update.

This is an optional update and will not download automatically on your PC. Traditionally, these optional quality-oriented updates are released a week or two after the monthly Patch Tuesday. If the user ignores this update, then these innovations will be installed automatically with a “Tuesday update” in August.

The KB5004296 update finally resolves Windows 10 issues where game frame rates drop, as well as issues resulting in lower than expected gaming performance. These flaws appeared with the April updates of Windows 10. Another fixed crash was when game services prevented certain games from opening.

It also resolves a crash with different performance modes in Windows – for unknown reasons, balanced and high performance modes did not work correctly. And the list of fixes and improvements does not end there, it is really very impressive.

Nvidia’s “magical” DLSS technology is going mainstream. It became available in 28 new games

Published

on

Nvidia’s fresh graphics driver released yesterday has brought DLSS support to many games. The list was replenished with 28 projects at once, and the total number of games with DLSS exceeded 100. Apparently, this is the largest update of the DLSS games database.

Most of those 28 games have DLSS support thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 plugin, which makes it easy to add technology to games.

This time, Nvidia doesn’t even list all the games that have received DLSS support. But Alan Wake Remastered can be noted, for which there is also a performance diagram. As you can see, DLSS can achieve over 60 fps in 4K UHD even on the GeForce RTX 2060.

To the delight of gamers. AUO unveils 85-inch 4K panel with 240Hz frame rate

Published

on

AUO has introduced a large screen that is clearly aimed at gamers – both PC and console users. The novelty is characterized by a diagonal of 85 inches and a frame rate of 240 Hz. Even the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, for all their power, are not capable of delivering 4K at this frame rate, so the screen (and TVs based on it) is ready for the next generation consoles.

The panel has reportedly already received an award from the Ministry of Science and Technology of China as Best Innovative Product of 2021. There are no particular details about the characteristics: it only talks about support for HDR technology, advanced anti-glare technology and coverage of 96% of the DCI-P3 color space. TVs based on the new panel are likely to be equipped with HDMI 2.1 ports (and maybe DisplayPort 2.0), but when their mass production will be launched, it has not been reported.

Intel continues to strengthen its graphics division as it prepares to bring the first true gaming graphics cards to market in the company’s modern history. And recently Intel got a number of good specialists.

Among them are not only engineers, but also, interestingly, game industry professionals.

This is Andre Bermer, a 20-year veteran of the gaming industry. He has worked for EA Games, LucasArt, Zynga, Prime Gaming and Amazon.

Michael Heilemann, who has worked at EA Games, Vivendi, Dreamworks and Sony, also joined Intel. Another new member of the team is Steve Bell. He spent 13 years at AMD and was the senior director of game development relations. Also worth mentioning is Ritche Corpus, who has been part of the AMD team for 15 years, including as head of gaming and professional software.

Of course, the appearance of game developers on the Intel team does not mean that the company is going to create games itself. But it points to Intel’s serious intentions regarding graphics cards.
