The PlayStation Stars loyalty program has already started in some countries, which means that some gamers have already managed to try it out and understand what exactly Sony offers, because the company did not explain the details.
So, empirically, users have determined that when they buy games in the PS Store, for every dollar spent, they are awarded 10 points. That is, for the most expensive games, which cost $75 in the US, 750 points are awarded.
Points are also awarded for various completed tasks and achievements, but there are no details yet.
But it is already clear that in this way it is quite difficult to collect points for a new game, because the prices are high. For example, Hades, which costs $25 on the PS Store itself, is asking for 6,250 points. That is, to buy such a game, you need to spend $ 625 on the purchase of games. For The Quarry, we are talking about 17,500 points, that is, 1,750 dollars. The regular price of the game in the PS Store is $70.
That is, while the loyalty program does not look like something profitable enough. However, there is an assumption that these are only indicators for the first level of the loyalty program. In total there will be four main and one secret. Presumably, with the transition to new levels, the number of points earned will increase.
It should also be noted that PlayStation Stars requires a PlayStation Plus subscription to work.
The design is similar to the Galaxy S23, but the screen is larger than the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Galaxy A14 5G spotted in Google Console database
The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G smartphone has been spotted in the Google Console, thanks to which we now know some of its parameters.
In particular, Google confirms Geekbench data that the device will be based on the new SoC Exynos 1330. Its configuration includes two Cortex-A78 cores, six Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G68 MC2 GPU.
In addition, the smartphone will receive up to 6 GB of RAM and a large 6.8-inch screen, possibly with support for 90 Hz.
The new platform will be much more productive than the Exynos 850, which is Samsung’s most basic SoC so far. But the Exynos 850 does not have a 5G modem and is used in very cheap smartphones. For example, in the Galaxy A13. But the Galaxy A13 5G already relies on the Dimensity 700. However, the first tests show that the Exynos 1330 will be faster than this MediaTek solution.
In terms of design, as we already know, the new Samsung will be made in the same style as the new flagship Galaxy S23. At the same time, the display of the state employee will be even larger than that of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, according to all available data.
All Snapdragon Pro Series gamers will now be forced to use Samsung smartphones
Qualcomm has chosen Samsung as an official partner of the Snapdragon Pro series of smartphones.
Among other things, this means that gamers who compete in the Snapdragon Pro Series Mobile Challenge and Mobile Masters will only use Snapdragon SoC-based Samsung Galaxy devices from the Snapdragon Pro Series Mobile Challenge Finals at DreamHack Valencia. That is, we are talking about one of the largest leagues in mobile eSports.
We are committed to bringing high-performance Snapdragon processor-based Samsung Galaxy devices to billions of gamers around the world to keep the spirit of camaraderie and competition going.
Which Samsung smartphones will be used by gamers is still unclear, but in recent years, the company’s devices have gained not the best fame among gamers, which is due to gaming services and related features.
Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games. Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9
Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.
The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
