Intel Tiger Lake with next-generation Xe graphics are going to power the upcoming thin and light notebooks and it seems that the graphics performance is going to be unlike what we have seen from Intel till now. Ryan Shrout Chief Performance Strategist at Intel showed off a relatively thin and light notebook powered by Intel Tiger Lake that was able to run Battlefield 5 on the integrated Xe graphics. The game was running at 1080p resolution at the high quality preset which is pretty impressive but it seems that it is the Battlefield 5 campaign which is relatively less graphics-intensive as compared to the utter chaos in the multiplayer mode. It is still very impressive indeed. Shrout did mention that the laptop was running the game at 30 FPS with only the integrated Intel Tiger Lake Xe graphics. https://twitter.com/ryanshrout/status/1273352056208850944?s=20 Shrout did not mention the make or model of the laptop…

Kena Bridge Of Spirits is a story-driven, action-adventure combining exploration with fast-paced combat. As Kena, players find and grow a team of charming spirit companions called the Rot, enhancing their abilities and creating new ways to manipulate the environment. Kena Bridge Of Spirits is one of the games that we saw at the PS5 reveal event but interestingly it is coming to PC as well. Nvidia has confirmed that Kena Bridge Of Spirits will be coming to PC later this year and the game is marked “coming soon” on the Epic Games Store. We are not sure if this is an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC at this point in time. It might be a timed exclusive or it could release on steam as well. At the time of writing Kena Bridge Of Spirits is not listed on Steam so it is likely that the game is exclusive to…

We have already seen variants from Asus and Gigabyte but now the MSI MPG B550 Gaming Edge WiFi ATX and ITX motherboards are also available for pre-order on Amazon.

Nvidia RTX 3080 is supposed to replace the RTX 2080 and while we are now used to the dual-fan cooler, it seems that Nvidia is taking another route with the cooler for the Nvidia RTX 3080. The Nvidia RTX 3080 seems to have a blower-style fan but there are two of them. One at the front and another one at the back. A recent drawing shows what I am talking about and you can check it out below: https://twitter.com/aschilling/status/1269247676576608259?s=20 Other than the drawing, we have some actual pictures of the Nvidia RTX 3080. The design seems to be much better than what we see in the drawing but the placement of the fans on the opposite sides does not really make sense. It would be really weird having it installed vertically. You can check out images of the graphics card below: At this time, we are not sure if this…

AMD has already announced the B550 chipset and B550 motherboards are already popping up online for pre-orders but now we have spotted the new A520 chipset motherboards from ASRock that have been submitted to the EEC for approval. We are not sure what these AMD A520 chipset motherboards will have to offer but keeping in mind that the A320 motherboards were entry-level products and that the B550 is supposed to cater to the mid-range segment of the market, it is safe to assume that these AMD A520 chipset motherboards will also be entry-level products. The AMD A520 chipset motherboards submitted by ASRock include the following: A520M-ITX / ac A520M / ac A520M Pro4 A520M Pro4 R2 0 A520M Pro4 R3.0 A520M-HDVP A520M-HDV A520M-HDV R2.0 A520M-HDV R3.0 A520M-HVS A520M-HVS R2.0 A520M-HVS R3.0 We are not sure what the features are going to be like.

The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT is supposed to be one of the upcoming high-end CPUs from AMD. The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT comes with 8 cores and 16 threads and should be able to boost to 4.8 GHz according to reports. Now, we have spotted an AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT benchmark and the initial performance seems pretty impressive. AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT 3DMark TimeSpy Benchmark The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT is going to be an AMD Ryzen Mattise refresh so you can expect to see reasonable improvement in performance. AMD is already using the XT nomenclature for its graphics cards so this could be a bit confusing. We should learn more about the naming scheme from AMD when these CPUs come out. You can check out the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT 3DMark TimeSpy Benchmark below in which the processor has a CPU score of 10,373: Recently a listing was spotted…
