Queues on the streets for new iPhones are a thing of the past for various reasons. Now the actual queues for video cards, processors and consoles.
A large retailer BestBuy recently announced that it had acquired another batch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X game consoles. As a result, impressive queues formed to some of the more than 300 stores indicated in the announcement. In at least one city, the queue consisted of about 250 people.
Not only did people start queuing up a day before the start of sales, but in some cases they continued to stand outside the store in the pouring rain. The store promised to sell only one set-top box per hand, which increased the chances of ordinary people getting the console. Considering that this was the first such sale of set-top boxes in the BestBuy network since the devices entered the market a year ago, it is not surprising that the excitement was significant.

For the year, the total consoles of Microsoft and Sony sold more than 16 million units, and there is still a huge deficit on the market. Unless the younger Series S in many markets can be bought without problems and expectations.
No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games
The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.
And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.
However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.
Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
An offline game has appeared in the Opera gaming browser in case of an unstable Internet connection or network disconnection
Opera Software has announced the launch of an innovation for the Opera GX browser. As a reminder, Opera GX is being promoted as a browser designed specifically for gamers. The innovation is intended to brighten up the moments when Wi-Fi suddenly disappears for game lovers.
In this case, the arcade game Operius appeared in the browser, which can be played offline. Created with GameMaker Studio 2 engine, the game will automatically appear in the browser every time the connection fails. If someone wants to play Operius on a stable internet, they can simply type opera: // operius in the Opera GX address bar.
Operius was selected through a competition involving more than 900 games created in GameMaker Studio 2. As a result, Operius won a poll where more than 100,000 Opera GX and GameMaker users voted for eight games selected by experts.
Operius features retro graphics inspired by 1980s space arcade shooters and a soundtrack from Catonator. Multiplayer is available to players without the Internet: in order to do this, you need to enter the mode for two players and then share the keyboard with a friend.
