The developers released a remake of Resident Evil 2 in 2019, and the updated Resident Evil 3 was released in 2020. The re-release of Resident Evil 4 will have to wait until 2023, but now it is at least officially announced.
Capcom announced that Resident Evil 4 will be released on March 24, 2023, and immediately on all popular platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S and Series X, PC. Capcom also announced that the game will support the next-generation PlayStation VR system, the PlayStation VR2 (although Sony has not yet said when this system will be available to users).
In the remake, the developers promise a rethought storyline of the game, upgraded graphics and an updated control system, which is logical. Recall that the original Resident Evil 4 was released in 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube, and then a version was released for the PlayStation 2 and other platforms.
You give twice as many artificially drawn frames in games! Frame generation technologies in Nvidia DLSS 3 and AMD FSR 3 forced to work together
Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR upscalers have their own variants of frame generation technology, which work differently and are available on different video cards. But it turns out that these technologies can be made to work together.
The authors from QuasarZone decided to check whether it would be possible to make the HR generation technologies of two companies work on one PC, and it turned out that it would work. But only in a very specific way, and the results are ambiguous.
This all works thanks to the fact that AMD has an AFMF generator built into the driver, otherwise it probably would not have been possible to implement the idea. However, the system must still have two different 3D maps. In the case of the authors of the idea, they used the RTX 4090 and RX 6600.
Rendering of the game, in this case several projects, including Cyberpunk 2077, was carried out on the RTX 4090 card. It also allowed DLSS 3 to be activated with frame generation. Next, the RX 6600, to which the monitor is connected, comes into operation. Technically it is used for image output, but the AMD driver allows you to improve performance through AFMF before outputting the image. That is, the AMD frame generator adds frames to a picture that the Nvidia generator had previously added frames to.
At the same time, productivity increases greatly. Almost three times the original value and twice the value obtained after the generator in DLSS 3.
This implementation, surprisingly, does not cause any special technical problems. Is it possible that the 1% Low indicator may even decrease in a number of games, although in Cyberpunk it has increased.
In addition, it is worth remembering that AFMF technology turns off as soon as the player starts moving the camera quickly, but in quiet modes it automatically turns back on. Unfortunately, the authors did not pay attention to image quality, which is very important, given two technologies for completing frame drawing.
Nvidia is, in a sense, giving away over a hundred games when you buy a GeForce RTX 40 graphics card. In fact, the gift comes with a Game Pass subscription
Nvidia has decided to update gifts for buyers of GeForce RTX 40 video cards, but there are no games in the new set. Or there is, but it depends on how you look at it.
The bottom line is that when purchasing a 3D card, the user will receive three months of Game Pass subscription as a gift. That is, access to more than a hundred games for free. That is, in a sense, we can say that more than a hundred games are included as a gift, but only for three months.
In addition, customers receive a free three-month subscription to the GeForce NOW Priority cloud gaming service. True, it’s not very clear why the owner of a fresh RTX 40 video card needs cloud gaming, but it’s still a gift.
Such gifts come with all RTX 40 cards, but, as always, not in all regions and not even at all retailers. This particular promotion is available in North America and most of Europe. Buyers in Latin America and most of Asia will only receive a Game Pass subscription.
The world’s first mini-PC with a processor like the Asus ROG Ally game console. Edge Z1 is based on Ryzen Z1
AMD earlier this year introduced the Ryzen Z1 and Z1 Extreme hybrid mobile processors, designed for portable consoles. It turned out that a mini-PC with such an APU will soon appear on the market.
The model is called Edge Z1 and is based, as the name suggests, on the base Ryzen Z1 APU. This, for example, underlies the younger version of Asus ROG Ally.
Let’s remember that the Ryzen Z1 has six cores with a frequency of up to 4.9 GHz and an iGPU Radeon 740M with 128 stream processors. The performance of this APU in games is not particularly high due to the rather weak graphics core, but later there will be a version on the Ryzen Z1 Extreme, which is generally the same as the Ryzen 7 7840U.
The ETA Prime channel tested a prototype mini-PC, but since this is a completely ordinary product, it is unlikely that the serial one will be much different. In addition to the mentioned processor, we can note two slots for RAM, a slot for SSD, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and USB-C, USB 3, USB 2.0, RJ45 and HDMI ports. Dimensions are not specified, but the PC is very compact.
There is no release date or price yet, but the manufacturer plans to initially enter some kind of crowdfunding platform.
