Along with monitors for professionals and gamers, ViewSonic introduced the PX701-4K, PX748-4K and M2e projectors.

The PX701-4K and PX748-4K models use the latest DLP XPR chip from Texas Instruments. It provides support for HDR and HLG content. The hardware resolution of these projectors is 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels).

The PX701-4K has a maximum brightness of 3200 lumens (ANSI), a refresh rate of 240 Hz and a response time of 5 ms (the manufacturer cites this data for 1080p resolution). The advantages of the PX701-4K include ease of installation with automatic geometric distortion correction. The projector is equipped with HDMI 2.0, USB 2.0 and RS232 interfaces, as well as an audio output. The lamp life reaches 20,000 hours.

The PX748-4K projector features 4,000 lumens (ANSI) brightness and a USB Type-C connector. This 1.3x zoom model is capable of automatic vertical keystone correction and adjustment to all four corners of the frame. Description mentions home automation ready with LAN control and 12V start-up. The projector supports 240Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time (as above, this data is for 1080p). The equipment of the device includes HDMI 2.0 and USB Type-C interfaces, as well as an audio output.

The M2e is portable. It is equipped with a built-in Harman Kardon speaker system, supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The resolution of the LED projector is 1920 x 1080 pixels. A single USB Type-C cable is used to simplify wiring. The projector boasts Advanced Instant AF and Automatic Vertical Keystone Correction. It covers 125% of the Rec.709 color space. The patented Cinema SuperColor + technology was tried on to improve color rendering. The M2e weighs only 1 kg. The equipment of the projector includes HDMI 2.0, microSD slot and audio output.

The PX701-4K projectors are expected to ship this month for $ 900. The PX748-4K and M2e are expected to hit the market in March for $ 1,000 and $ 550, respectively.

The new game from the creator of the BioShock series

At the last The Game Awards 2022 ceremony, the first trailer of the debut game of the Ghost Story Games studio was shown. Its founder is Ken Levin, the “father” of the BioShock series. The new project is called Judas, and it’s very similar to BioShock.

The plot unfolds on board a spaceship, which is gradually being destroyed. The hero is a character named Judas, who needs to find a way to escape, and for this he will have to unite with his worst enemies.

The game promises a non-linear and variable plot with several endings, different options for passing, and so on. It is noteworthy that the game looks and feels very similar to BioShock. It has the aesthetics of retrofuturism, superpowers and elements of phantasmagoria. For example, the hero can install implants in his hand to use fire or electric attacks. It also reminds a lot of Atomic Heart, which was also shown at TGA.

At the moment, it is not reported when the game will appear. But there is already a list of platforms – PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, that is, only on modern solutions.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080. There are tests in 3DMark

Even the 900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete

As we learned today, reviews of the Radeon RX 7900 video cards will be published on December 12th. But the first tests in normal benchmarks appeared today.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080.  There are tests in 3DMark

Both of AMD’s new products lit up in 3DMark. Unfortunately, in the Fire Strike and Time Spy tests, which are quite old, it is still much better than the results in Geekbench.

True, the results of AMD’s new products themselves look debatable. In Time Spy at 4K, there is almost no difference between the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT, and both cards perform roughly on par with the GeForce RTX 4080.

In Fire Strike, the younger RX 7900 XT is already successfully fighting the RTX 4080, and the older RX 7900 XTX is about 10% faster. Relative to the RX 6950 XT, AMD’s new flagship provides a gain of 25-30%, which is rather modest. And this can be written down as a minus for AMD’s new products, especially against the background of the catastrophically more powerful RTX 4090.

However, keep in mind the prices. The RX 7900 XT, which in both tests is quite suitable for a direct competitor to the RTX 4080 in terms of performance, is cheaper than the Nvidia card by $300 or 25%! And against this background, the lag behind the RTX 4090 is completely irrelevant. And if you calculate the ratio of performance and price, AMD’s new products look much better than the same RTX 4090, not to mention the RTX 4080.

Of course, in games the situation may be somewhat different, especially since these 3DMark tests are very old. But here it is worth noting that, if you look at the comparison of the RTX 30 and RX 6000 cards, the balance of power roughly corresponds to what the cards show in games.

Microsoft will not be able to get control of Call of Duty? FTC wants to block deal with Activision Blizzard

Microsoft will not be able to get control of Call

Microsoft’s deal to buy Activision Blizzard is facing another major threat. The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued to block the deal.

Microsoft will not be able to get control of Call of Duty?  FTC wants to block deal with Activision Blizzard

The commission concluded that the purchase of such a large player would make Microsoft too strong, and the company could quickly suppress competitors.

The Federal Trade Commission is trying to block tech giant Microsoft from acquiring top video game developer Activision Blizzard and its blockbuster gaming franchises like Call of Duty, arguing that the $69 billion deal, the largest in Microsoft history and the largest in video game industry history, would allow Microsoft to crack down on competitors to its Xbox game consoles and its rapidly growing subscription content and cloud gaming business.

In a complaint released today, the FTC pointed to Microsoft’s experience in acquiring and using valuable game content to stifle competition from rival consoles, including the acquisition of ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks (an established game developer). Microsoft has decided to make several Bethesda games, including Starfield and Redfall, exclusive to Microsoft despite assurances it has given European antitrust authorities that it has no incentive to deny games for competing consoles.

By having control over Activision’s blockbuster franchises, Microsoft would have both the means and motive to harm competition by manipulating Activision’s prices, reducing the quality of Activision’s games or the quality of the gaming experience on competing consoles and game services, changing the terms and conditions of access to Activision content, or denying content from competitors, which harms consumers

Thus, the commission has two main arguments: firstly, Microsoft will become too strong after buying Activision Blizzard due to the huge influence of a number of its franchises on the market, and secondly, the company has already deceived the regulators once before buying Bethesda, initially claiming that Microsoft has no intention of restricting any other platforms, and then officially announcing the exclusivity of Starfield and Redfall. Recall that Phil Spencer also clearly hinted that the new parts of the cult franchises Fallout and The Elder Scrolls will also be exclusives.

Microsoft has already shown that it can and will hide content from its gaming competitors

Of course, the FTC lawsuit is not yet a verdict for the deal, but it is a very serious obstacle.
