  • Intel HD 5500 vs HD 4400 - Unigine Heaven Benchmark - Comparing the performance of Intel's new HD 5500 graphics in the Broadwell-U based 5th Generation Core i-series products to 4th Generation HD 4400 graphics.

  • AMD Radeon Graphics Presents: The Fixer 3 - AMD has released another episode of The Fixer.
  • Virtual Tour Of Paris Using Unreal Engine 4 - This virtual tour of an apartment in Paris using the Unreal 4 engine is extremely impressive.
  • Windows 10 Build 9926: Where's Windows Update? - Windows 10 is going to be different as are all new operation systems, but nothing on the scale of Windows 8. There will be a UI learning curve, but if you take in the new features in small bites, it will all fall into place long before the OS is released. This installment we are going to play Finding Windows Update and Where the hell is the Control Panel? :D Microsoft has started the push to finalize the Windows 10 interface. Get used to it. By the time Windows 10 is ready to publicly release, Control Panel should be retired completely. Windows Update has now been removed completely from the old-style Control Panel and found a new home inside the new, streamlined Windows Settings applet. The "new" update needs work. As is, there is no granular control of the updates i.e. there's no way to refuse updates on an individual basis :(
  • Windows 10 for Enterprise is not free in the first year - According to Microsoft's latest blog post, the company's free Windows 10 upgrade offer won't cover the Enterprise version of the OS which is provided to software assurance customers. It has also been revealed that updates would be delivered to Enterprise customers differently as well. Enterprise customers will have a thoroughly tested version of Windows 10 as compatibility with existing hardware and older software is a critical requirement of businesses. Microsoft will maintain two branches for such customers, one being the Long Term Servicing Branch and the other would be the Current Branch for Business.
  • Critical Linux Security Hole Is Discovered - Researchers at cloud security company Qualys have discovered a major security hole, GHOST (CVE-2015-0235), in the Linux GNU C Library (glbibc). This vulnerability enables hackers to remotely take control of systems without even knowing any system IDs or passwords. Qualys alerted the major Linux distributors about the security hole quickly and most have now released patches for it. Josh Bressers, manager of the Red Hat product security team said in an interview that, "Red Hat got word of this about a week ago. Updates to fix GHOST on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5, 6, and 7 are now available via the Red Hat Network." This hole exists in any Linux system that was built with glibc-2.2, which was released on November 10, 2000. Qualys found that the bug had actually been patched with a minor bug fix released on May 21, 2013 between the releases of glibc-2.17 and glibc-2.18.
  • Microsoft to Back Cyanogen's Android Efforts - Microsoft has agreed to invest an unknown dollar figure in Cyanogen, which offers a version of Android devoid of Google's strictures. Cyanogen recently raised $70 million in funding, of which Microsoft is playing a minority role say sources cited by the Wall Street Journal. Neither Microsoft nor Cyanogen commented on Microsoft's involvement with the Android software maker, but Cyanogen has big goals. Last week, Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster said, "We're going to take Android away from Google." Cyanogen is working with handset makers to have its version of Android preinstalled on devices rather than Google's. It has succeeded with Micromax in India and is working to win over others. Google may offer Android to OEMs for free, but the search giant places strict requirements for handset makers to access the Play Store and other Google services. Cyanogen claims 50 million people have installed its variant of Android on devices, most of whom are enthusiast users who root their device and sideload the operating system.
  • BT to offer broadband speeds up to 500Mbps,trials to begin this - BT is the UK's largest internet service provider, as well as owning much of the network infrastructure used by other providers to deliver their services. Today, the company outlined its vision for rolling out 'ultrafast' speeds across the entire country. For home users, today's top BT Infinity 2 fibre connections offer speeds of up to 76Mbps, while rival Virgin Media leads the way with speeds of up to 152Mbps. But BT says that it will "deliver ultrafast speeds of up to 500Mbps to most of the UK within a decade."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Recommended Specs - briefly
(hx) 02:28 PM EST - Jan,30 2015 - Post a comment / read (1)
There's no doubt that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of our most highly anticipated games of 2015. However, it appears that PC gamers will need a really beefy rig in order to enjoy 60fps with max settings. According to CD Projekt RED, the game's recommended specs are not for its Ultra settings, meaning that there will be very few gamers able to enjoy it at its Ultra settings. When asked about the game's recommended specs and whether gamers would be able to run the game at Ultra settings with such a system, CD Projekt RED told WitcherSite (fansite): that the official specs were for mid-high settings: "No, recommended specs are supposed to let you play on mid-high settings in 1920x1080(Full HD)"

Witcher 3 Considering "Insanity" Mode - briefly
(hx) 04:41 PM EST - Jan,29 2015 - Post a comment
Polish developer CD Projekt Red is working on an "Insanity" difficulty mode for open-world role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that sounds like it would certainly live up to that distinction. During a recent Twitch live-stream, CD Projekt Red developers said they couldn't reveal too much about the Insanity mode, since it's still in development, but did confirm that one idea being tossed around is that dying even once would wipe your entire game save. CD Projekt Red's overall goal for Insanity mode is to make it incredibly punishing but still fun, developers said, as reported by Game Informer. The developer didn't reveal any other ideas it had for Insanity mode, and it should be noted that nothing has been finalized. The Witcher 3 release date is May 19, 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is Not Safe For Work - briefly

The Guardian reports that the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt contains 16 hours (!) of sex scene motion capture data!
But the development team behind forthcoming fantasy adventure title The Witcher: Wild Hunt seems unfazed by either moral or technical concerns. The game, due for release in May, contains sex scenes constructed from over 16 hours of motion capture data. There may not be any of Houser's dildo sex in the George RR Martin-esque fantasy plains, but there is a Hugh Hefnerian amount of lovemaking. It comes quickly, too. Within the first 15 seconds the camera droops to linger on a woman’s fulsome posterior, moments after dismounting the protagonist, the white-haired monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia.

"People might think we’re putting sex into the opening scene for no good reason," explains senior game designer Damien Monhier. "No, no, no. We are establishing that your character was intimate with this woman recently in order to plant in your mind that, at very least, he must enjoy her company." In subsequent moments we see the pair gently flirt in an atmosphere of easy-going post-coital familiarity. Their secrets have been spilled and now, as she freshens at the mirror and he tousles her hair, a deeper affection between the characters is established.

"Through sex we have shown that this is a person who Geralt would be compelled to chase after if she went missing," says Monheir. Five minutes later, the drama shunts into the future, a time when the woman, Yennefer, has disappeared. Your goal as lovelorn Geralt (accompanied by an older witcher named Vesemir) is to track her across the Skellige Islands. "Sex is the quickest way in which to establish the relationship and provide a justification for the player to pursue this woman," he continues. "We couldn't just tell you to go find someone you don't know or care about. It wouldn't work."
In Witcher 3 related news, CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will run 30fps at 1080p on PlayStation 4 and 30fps at 900p on Xbox One. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes out on May 19.
