Radeon RX 6750 XT, RX 6650 XT Listed at Exorbitant Prices in Europe

A French computers, components, and electronics retail chain has listed two new AMD RDNA2 refresh GPUs as “in stock.” PC21.fr has specifically listed Asus branded Radeon RX 6650 XT and RX 6750 XT graphics cards that will vie for a spot on the list of best graphics cards. These unreleased Radeon graphics cards should launch shortly, alongside a new Radeon RX 6950 XT, part of the long-rumored RDNA2 refresh – which should be the last AMD graphics card launch before we move into the RDNA3 era. Hardware detective momomo_us spotted the product codes which turned up these listings. The French…

Nintendo Switch Sports reviews tout a fun and nostalgic game with a few misses

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. Have a look at our reviews round-up. Reviews are in for Nintendo Switch Sports, and you can look over all of the scores below. Most critics feel it is a fun game full of Wii Sports notstalgia, yet, some feel it lacks variety and consists of “a few duds.” That said, it seems like it will be a multiplayer party game worth picking up despite the fact servers weren’t live in time for reviews to land. Similar to Wii Sports,…

The Long Dark is getting its first paid DLC later this year in the form of a “season pass”

The content will take a “season pass-type approach” and will consist of a 15-18 month campaign of updates Hinterland has announced it will release a paid season pass of sorts for The Long Dark later this year. According to a rather lengthy developer diary posted to the game’s Steam page and the official website, studio founder Raphael van Lierop – who also announced he was stepping down as project lead to work on new things – the team has “decoupled” Story Mode and Survival Mode making it easier to produce content for one without impacting the other. Apparently, the interrelationship…

Asus ZenScreen Go MB16AWP Review: Wireless Mirroring, Great Color

We’ve reviewed several Asus portable monitors over the past few months and they tend to hit all the right notes when it comes to performance and features. While the ROG Strix XG16AHPE and ROG Strix XG17AHPE were geared more towards the gaming end of the portable monitor segment, the Asus ZenScreen Go MB16AWP is more productivity-focused and includes functionality that we don’t often see in this segment. The Asus ZenScreen Go MB16AWP features a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panel, 60 Hz refresh rate, 5ms response time and an integrated 7,800 mAh battery. The last feature, coupled with the built-in Wi-Fi,…

How To Check Disk Usage in Linux

In this tutorial, we’ll look at various ways of using the terminal to check disk usage enabling us to see what storage space is left on our system no…

Today’s Wordle answer #315: Saturday, April 30

Have you been looking for the Wordle April 30 (315) answer? Having thousands of five-letter words to choose from can make it tough to pick one to start with, especially when it’s been a while since my last three, or even four, guess victory. It’s on those days I like to look around the room for a little nudge—good or bad, at least I’m over that first hurdle. Try it for yourself if you’re stuck.  And if you’re not stuck at all, maybe you’d like to look at our Wordle archive instead? No matter why you’re here, I can help…

In 1991, Who Framed Roger Rabbit came to PC in an unexpected format

From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column about rolling the dice to bring random games back into the light. This week… who framed Roger Rabbit? Judge Doom. But that’s not important right now—this Easter bunny has other reasons to get hot and cross. No argument is permitted here: Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a great movie. The noir ambience. Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse sharing a screen. The perfect line “Dabbling in watercolours, Eddie?” The subtle details children were never expected to get. Really, it only has one problem—Roger Rabbit himself being the cartoon equivalent of getting…

Arm Retakes Control of China Operation, Erratic CEO Replaced

The chairman and CEO of Arm China, who refused to give up his prestigious tech leadership role despite being fired in 2020, may have finally been pushed out of the door. A Reuters report says that Allen Wu has been replaced and that all Chinese legal processes were satisfied. The replacement of the Arm China CEO appears to be a rapidly developing story. On Wednesday, we reported on Allen Wu’s exit being imminent when Arm went to court to get new business registration documents and a new seal (sometimes called a chop) issued. Mr. Wu had steadfastly refused to let…

Our Nate (RPS in peace) is a big fan of Age Of Empires 2, calling it the best strategy game ever made and, in his Definitive Edition review saying it was still that, “but now, there’s a lot more of it.” Well, there’s more of it again, now, with the release of the Dynasties Of India DLC.

It’s not just you: Mercy was completely broken in the Overwatch 2 beta

Audio player loading… For the first three days of the Overwatch 2 beta, Mercy couldn’t heal properly. The game’s most popular healer had a bug that prevented her healing beam from chaining to allies during her Valkyrie ultimate, squashing any hope of saving her team during a hectic fight. Blizzard issued a patch that fixed the ability today, but a list of problems remain for the support character, which are detailed in this Reddit post by user ihatemouthwash. I noticed Mercy’s wonky behavior myself while playing the beta this week. Valkyrie is supposed to increase the healing rate of Mercy’s…

Aorus DDR5 Flexes LN2 Overclock to New World Record

Gigabyte Team overclocker HiCookie has achieved a new DDR5 speed world record. Using a single 16GB stick of Aorus branded DDR5 RGB memory, HiCookie hit and verified 5,011 MHz, or DDR5-10022 (10,022 MT/s). This is just a smidgeon faster than MSI Team chalked up in a milestone achievement earlier in the week, but a record is a record. It is also interesting to see some significant diversity among the component choices – there appears to be no ‘winning formula,’ but DDR5 consumer platforms are Intel-only for now. In the video above, you can see the DDR5-10022 world record-breaking moment captured…

Skull & Bones leaked footage shows NPC mutinies and ship crafting

Audio player loading… Ubisoft’s long-expected, oft-delayed multiplayer pirate game Skull & Bones just sprung a leak. Footage of a six minute introductory video appeared on Reddit (though it was taken down just as I was writing this) and it’s the type of narrated primer shown to testers or preview players before they get to try the game, rather than raw footage of someone just playing. Since I actually played a bit of Skull & Bones back in 2018 at a preview event (and probably watched the same sort of video first), I was curious to see how much of it…

Steam is going rogue next week with the Festival of Persistence sale

During the week you can enjoy discounts on current and upcoming roguelike games. Starting Monday May 2, Steam will celebrate roguelikes, roguelites, and everything in between with Going Rogue: A Festival of Persistence. Running through May 9, during this time you can explore discounts on games that belong to these subgenres. Rooted in elements of RPG fantasy or action and based on the genre’s namesake, Rogue, roguelikes, and roguelites are games where persistence means success. Roguelike games tend to feature complexity, random maps, and often permadeath, whereas roguelites borrow from the same elements, but permadeath isn’t always the only option…

Nvidia Poaches Intel Alder Lake Architect to Strengthen Arm CPU Push

Nvidia has scored another high-profile hire for its Arm CPU push – this time, from under Intel’s nose. Rafi Marom, Intel’s Design Manager at its Israel facilities and one of the managers behind the successful Tiger Lake architecture, jumped ship to Nvidia’s facility based within the country. His new role as Senior CPU Director casts him as one of the premier architects for the company’s future Arm products. After its multi-billion-dollar push for acquiring the U.K.-based company failed, Nvidia is seemingly doubling down on its Arm core design capabilities as it aims to push the envelope farther.

The making of The Gunk: how the SteamWorld devs went from mist balls to saving the planet

Finding your niche can often be the key to success for smaller developers, but Swedish team Image & Form refuse to be pigeonholed. Over the last ten years they’ve tackled every genre, from tower defence to turn-based tactics, RPGs and action platformers. With their latest game, The Gunk, they’ve finally entered the realm of 3D adventure games. Released on Xbox Game Pass at the tail end of last year, The Gunk was a big step up for the makers of SteamWorld Dig. Not only was it their first game in 3D, and their first time using a new engine, but…

The best gaming headsets in 2022

The best gaming headset has to mix outstanding audio, the comfort to last a proper gaming session, and great connectivity, too.

Of course the most important factor is sound quality. Where would…
