Gigabyte’s new B650E motherboard supports plump graphics cards weighing up to 58 kg

Published

on

Anyone who’s bought a high end graphics card over the last couple of years knows they are seriously chunky bits of kit. If they weren’t used for gaming, they’d make pretty good blunt force murder weapons.

But in a sign that next-gen graphics cards are hitting the buffet, or in the gym getting bulked up prior to their next gen reveal, Benchlife shared a preview of the Gigabyte B650E Aorus Pro X USB4. It revealed the board’s PCIe 5.0 slot has a rather shocking weight tolerance of up to 58 kg. That’s 128 pounds!

Gigabyte refers to this slot as the PCIe UD Slot X. The slot itself doesn’t appear to be significantly different to those on currently available boards, which often feature metal reinforcement and strengthened soldering. Gigabyte goes beyond though, as a look around the back of the board shows a small backplate secured with four screws. If you use this board, your graphics card surely won’t be ripping out the PCIe slot.

Shadow of the Erdtree review roundup: ‘Recaptures all of the magic of playing Elden Ring for the first time.’

Published

on

While we’re still two days out from Shadow of the Erdtree and a mass of eager Tarnished being unleashed to chase Miquella beyond the Lands Between, we’ve got advanced reports from critics who’ve gone in ahead to survey the scene. Erdtree reviews started hitting this morning, and you’re never going to believe this: People are pretty into Elden Ring.

There are a lot of perfect and near-perfect scores in the mix, and we’ve added our own mark to the tally. PC Gamer’s Shadow of the Erdtree review is already up, and our Tyler Colp had plenty of praise to share for Elden Ring’s last hurrah, ensuring its place as “one of the most creative and satisfying action RPGs ever made.” Here’s a roundup of reviews from critics elsewhere.

“Variety is the spice of life, and Erdtree is one hot dish.”

Not even Riot wants to try competing with Fortnite on user-generated content: ‘I’m not gonna go pick that fight with Epic’

Published

on

Riot has tried its hand at a lot of things to bring its already massively-popular MOBA League of Legends to a wider audience, from spinoff games to animated series and even some high-profile musical crossovers. But one area it’s not interested in venturing into, for the core game at least, is the realm of user-generated content: UGC has been a massive boon for some games, but Riot doesn’t see it as a good fit for League.

Riot’s head of League Studio Andrei van Roon said in a recent Q&A session that while the studio might be interested in pursuing UGC in other projects, League of Legends itself isn’t really built for that sort of thing.

The father of Final Fantasy teamed back up with Square Enix after 21 years to break his latest RPG out of Apple Arcade jail

Published

on

Jailbreak! During Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct presentation, a trailer for Japanese RPG Fantasian: Neo Dimension revealed that the 2021 Apple Arcade exclusive is finally coming to PC. Its creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, best known for helming the Final Fantasy series from 1987 until his departure from Squaresoft in 2003, had some surprise help in freeing Fantasian from its mobile exclusivity: Final Fantasy 14 producer Yoshi-P.

If you follow Sakaguchi on Twitter, you’ll immediately realize this is a match made in heaven. Sakaguchi loves Final Fantasy 14, playing the MMO to the near exclusion of all other games. He “basically lived in Final Fantasy 14” back in 2022, playing it 12 hours a day, but has never collaborated on it, saying then he wouldn’t be able to enjoy playing it as much. While Sakaguchi seems to be on good terms with his former Square Enix colleagues these days, he hasn’t worked on anything with the studio in more than 20 years. Until Fantasian.

The voice of Mass Effect’s sexy bird man Garrus will be the voice of Avowed’s sexy fish man Kai

Published

on

Brandon Keener, the man behind the voice of Commander Shepard’s number-one guy Garrus Vakarian in the Mass Effect series, will portray companion (and potential number-one guy) Kai in Obsidian’s upcoming RPG Avowed—and his name isn’t the only one you’re likely to recognize.

Keener’s role in Avowed first came to light last week thanks to @PoweredbyidTech on Twitter, which naturally provoked some excitement: Garrus is everyone’s favorite stoic sexy bird man, after all. Obsidian essentially confirmed the casting (or at least hinted at it pretty unmistakably) a few days later:

Now it’s really official: Obsidian confirmed with PC Gamer that Keener will in fact portray Kai in Avowed, and also shared the rest of the talent behind the game’s main cast of companions. Here’s who you’ll be meeting on your travels through the Living Lands:

  • Brandon Keener, who we’ve already talked about, will give life to Kai, a coastal aumaua soldier
  • Mara Junot, best known as the voice of Ikora Rey in Destiny 2, will portray Giatta, one of the ocean folk from the Vailian settlement of Fior mes Ivèrno
  • Anjali Bhimani, who portrayed Medusa in Stray Gods and Commander Natara in Starfield, is Yatzli, a hearth orlan wizard
  • Scott Whyte, whose many roles include Rathma in Diablo 4, will give voice to the boreal dwarf Marius

The new D&D core books feature nearly 400 spells and over 500 monsters, but disappointingly few new ideas

Published

on

With pre-orders for the three new Dungeons & Dragons core books now live, Wizards of the Coast was kind enough to give me an early look at what you can expect from each. But while it’s clear that a lot of work and passion has gone into these reimagined releases, I’m concerned that so much of what I’m shown feels stuck in tabletop gaming’s past, rather than the foundation for a new future for D&D.

To be clear, I haven’t read the full books yet—WOTC’s presentation only offered a top-level view of what’s to be found within, with key examples. But the parts the designers were keen to highlight felt, to me, hugely revealing of what they see as important, and though I did like some of what I saw, Wizards of the Coast doesn’t seem to be addressing any of the game’s core problems, or ensuring its game feels modern and relevant through these partial updates.

737 days since the last Silksong news, and not a whisper from this year’s Nintendo Direct—I’d like to say fans are coping well but, y’know

Published

on

It’s been over 700 days since we’ve heard anything about Silksong, and no-one’s really holding it together. Despite being a hook, line, and sinker-sequel to Hollow Knight, one of the most beloved Metroidvanias of the past decade, its ill-fated follow up has been basically absent since its announcement in 2019—coming up for breath only once in 2022 during an Xbox showcase.

It also didn’t make an appearance during Summer Game Fest, so for the last skongers still holding out hope, the Nintendo Direct stood as a final bastion of news. I say that—the pre-show atmosphere was a little grim, with Silksong subreddit user E1331 being publicly sacrificed via hanging for taking a bite out of the Team Cherry logo by the mods. Other memes were less corporal punishment, but similarly pessimistic.

Cities: Skylines 2 warns players about an oncoming ‘death wave’ that’ll kill your elderly, ‘The older your citizens are, the more severe it will be’

Published

on

The next patch for Cities: Skylines 2 will be Economy 2.0, which will be released in the upcoming week. But before we can enjoy everything on offer, publisher Paradox Interactive wants to highlight a couple of life-and-death issues. 

No one’s saves should be broken, but that won’t stop the upcoming Economy 2.0 patch from messing with your files: “Any saves that you have built and played on before the patch will be affected by the changes brought by the patch,” a Paradox Interactive blog post says. “We wanted to share a list of things you might encounter while loading up your save after the Economy 2.0 patch.”

Fetch the popcorn: US government sues Adobe, says it’s ‘trapped’ consumers with a subs model that’s ‘absurdly hard to cancel’ and ‘ambushed’ them with late fees

Published

on

In news that will delight any user of Photoshop, the US government is suing Adobe for allegedly harming consumers by “enrolling them in its default, most lucrative subscription plan without clearly disclosing important plan terms.” 

The complaint from the Department of Justice (DoJ) claims that Adobe “hides” the true cost of its subscriptions in fine print, “behind optional textboxes and hyperlinks,” and deliberately makes cancelling a subscription “onerous and complicated” before it “ambushes” customers with termination fees.

Emulation proves the inevitable Achilles’ Heel of Qualcomm’s new PC chips when it comes to gaming

Published

on

Two weeks ago I was in a hotel in downtown Taipei prodding some of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon X Elite laptops, and I was impressed with how well they ran Baldur’s Gate 3 and Metro Exodus. Both are compiled for the x86 CPU architecture, yet the co-created Microsoft/Qualcomm Prism emulation layer still delivered impressive gaming performance from proper PC games.

And I was happy. A few days later I was happier still as I checked out the Works on WoA microsite to see about game compatibility and this is what I saw:

But today, now that the early reviews are starting to trickle out—either in sponsored form or otherwise—the news isn’t nearly so promising. And it’s nothing to do with the brutal bout of Computex showvid-19 I came back with; it’s all about the performance hit when it comes to gaming under that emulation layer.
