Crysis 3 hacked to run at 8K
[b][i]Gives us a beautiful glimpse of gaming in the future:[/i][/b] [img]http://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/8k-crysis-downsize-640x353.jpg[/img] You know how your computer struggles to run Crysis 3 at 1920×1080 at very high detail? And you know how beautiful it looks, even at that humdrum resolution? Well, now an enthusiast called K-putt has used a hacked Crysis 3 executable to run the game at 8K — and I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that the resultant screenshots are probably the most beautiful examples of real-time computer-generated graphics that I’ve ever seen. Crysis 3 at 8K looks so good that you could be mistaken for thinking that these screenshots are hand-drawn concept art — but in fact they’re straight out of the engine. Don’t get your hopes up for 8K gaming any time soon, though: K-putt has a pretty beefy gaming rig, and yet it could only muster 2 fps when running at 8K resolution. As you’re probably well aware, ever since Crysis was first released i

PC Game Revenue has Surpassed Console Games' Globally
PC game revenues have passed console games, but the release of the PS4 and Xbox One should help keep a comparable revenue stream. [i]"Among core gamers there is a heavy overlap with most console gamers also playing on a PC. The big difference is that consoles are now the luxury item and PCs are the necessity. Just a few years ago the reverse was true. This means PCs have the broader audience."[/i] [i] [/i] [url=http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/read/pc-games-have-surpassed-console-games-globally/033849][i]Full article[/i][/url] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/10222iBDBC1F311F81A7DD.png[/img]
Anyone considering a 4K monitor for gaming?
There's a bunch that are coming out lately, including this one from Samsung: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-28-Inch-Definition-Monitor-U28D590D/dp/B00IEZGWI2]http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-28-Inch-Definition-Monitor-U28D590D/dp/B00IEZGWI2[/url] I'm kinda tempted, although I'd probably need to upgrade my graphics card as well. Although on the plus side you could probably turn off a lot of the post processing at that resolution.
