Custom AMD Vega Boards Reportedly Delayed By Technical Issues

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. When Nvidia or AMD launch a new GPU, there’s a typical rollout pattern. The first cards out the door are reference designs, based on a package Nvidia and AMD provide. Later, companies like MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA, Asus, and PowerColor debut their own custom designs. These custom boards are generally clocked higher, have better, quieter coolers, or may be built on a custom smaller PCB. This time around, however, AMD’s board partners are reportedly having major…

Doom Arrives on the Switch to Positive Previews, Early Acclaim

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Nintendo’s third-party developer relations have never been as strong as Sony’s or Microsoft. Some consoles, like the Wii, had a great deal of third-party games, even if the console missed out on many of the most popular franchises that debuted on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. The Wii U’s third-party support was much worse, thanks to low lifetime platform sales. From the beginning, Nintendo has said it wanted to reverse this situation with the…

US Navy to Use Xbox 360 Controllers for Submarine Periscopes

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Each one of the US Navy’s Virginia-class submarines costs about $ 2.6 billion. So, it should come as no surprise that it contains a lot of custom, high-end electronics and military hardware. The Navy is looking to save a little money on future submarines, and make them a bit easier to operate, by ditching some of that fancy custom technology in favor of a game console controller. According to Lockheed-Martin, the US government is in…

Blizzard’s Overwatch Community is So Toxic, It’s Slowing Patch Updates

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Blizzard’s Overwatch has been a smash hit since it launched in 2016, but as with any multiplayer game, trolling and poor player conduct is a concern. Apparently it’s such a concern that Overwatch lead designer and Blizzard VP Jeff Kaplan took to YouTube to explain why new features for the game have been delayed: It’s because Blizzard is spending a non-trivial amount of resources dealing with online trolling. Kaplan notes that Blizzard is working on…

Nintendo Will Bring Back the NES Classic Edition in 2018

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Last year, Nintendo launched its great monument to bait-and-switch, the NES Classic Edition. The cutting-edge 30-year-old console packed a reasonable number of classic NES games into a diminutive form factor; then Nintendo slapped an attractive $ 60 price on the whole shebang. And then, in the face of completely predictable high demand, Nintendo decided to build six of them a week. After a few months, the company decided it had enough money and killed the…

Nintendo Says SNES Classic Production Will Be ‘Dramatically Increased’

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. The launch of Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition last year was marred by the company’s near-total disconnection from reality, as supply issues drove resale prices of the mini-console to several hundred dollars. It’s no surprise, then, that Nintendo fans were skeptical they’d be able to get the SNES Classic Edition this year. Indeed, pre-orders sold out almost instantly last month, but Nintendo says it’s planning to ramp up production this time rather than ignore the problem. The…
