My first Gaming PC build

PC BuildSo, over the weekend I finally managed to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, build my own gaming PC. I want to take you through how I found the experience  of a PC build as a noob and what I learnt but first it’s probably useful to give some background as to what made me, traditionally a console gamer, desire to cross over to the PC platform and more importantly do my own PC build. It’s no secret that I’ve slowly been drifting away from console gaming over the last year or so. The current Xbox One and PlayStation 4 just don’t do it for me. I’ve been a console gamer since I was 3 or 4 starting out with a NES that I got for Christmas. Continue reading My first Gaming PC build

Rumour: Nintendo Switch CPU and GPU clock speeds revealed

nintendo switch nintendo nxGamers obsession with power and performance goes back to the days of playing games from cassettes and perhaps more memorably the battles between Nintendo and Sega. In recent years it’s seemed that Nintendo has refused to take part in the Performance battle and one could argue that they have paid a hefty price, what with the WiiU failing to take off. Whilst Nintendo have finally revealed the Nintendo Switch they haven’t really given any numbers on what their innovative machine is capable of. A new report seems to reconfirm earlier rumours surrounding the machines capabilities and core components.

CPU’s With Direct Liquid Cooling Could Soon Be a Thing

CPU Cooling 2Heatsinks and cooling blocks may soon be a thing of the past as researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology remove bulky hardware and just apply the cooling directly to the chip.

Associate professor Muhannad Bakir says that this technology could also be applied to GPUs, as well as CPUs, and could mean far more powerful systems in the future with fewer compromises when taking heat into consideration.

Slightly Mad Studios deny Sabotaging Project CARS AMD performance

Slightly Mad StudiosFor those of you currently unaware of the situation, Project CARS developer Slightly Mad Studios have been accused, in a detailed post on Reddit, of deliberately focusing their game’s engine around a version of PhysX that favors Nvidia hardware, over rival brand AMD.

Nvidia See Slowing PC Sales in Run up to Windows 10 Launch

Nvidia GTX 980GPU maker Nvidia said yesterday that in the run up to the window 10 launch in the summer, they have noticed slowing sales of PC’s.
