GTX 970/980 Specs And Benchmarks Leaked? - tech
(hx) 06:41 PM EDT - Sep,15 2014 - Post a comment
This forum thread has a bunch of "leaked" GTX 970/980 specs, and even a 3DMark score thrown in for good measure. Hit the link for all the info. Here's the 3DMark score to pique your interest:

NVIDIA's next-generation flagship single-GPU graphics card, the GeForce GTX 980, will feature 2,048 CUDA cores, and not the previously thought of 1,920. These 2,048 will be spread across 16 Streaming Multiprocessor Maxwell (SMM) units. Its sibling, the GeForce GTX 970, in comparison, features 1,664 cores spread across 13 SMMs. The TDP of GTX 980 is rated at just around 175W, and that of the GTX 970 at 145W. In comparison, the GK104 silicon, on the GeForce GTX 770, is rated at 230W. The kicker? Both GM204 and GK104 are based on the same 28 nm silicon fab node. Both cards feature power inputs consisting of two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. NVIDIA is expected to launch the two, on the 19th of September, 2014.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Detailed - briefly
(hx) 03:51 PM EDT - Sep,15 2014 - Post a comment
Sleeping Dogs' community manager has revealed some new details about the graphical upgrades that will be implemented in its Definitive Edition that is coming on current-gen consoles and PC. According to GDArcan, the game's draw distance will be increased and its textures will be of a higher resolution.
We've increased the overall resolution of the game so it's now natively running in 1080p. The textures have also had their resolutions increased as draw distances have been increased as well, making things sharper! Add to this volumetric fog to represent the humidity of Hong Kong and hopefully you'll have the background of your dreams.
Certain aspects have been tweaked but we've tried to maintain the integrity of the original game so you won't see massive changes. The difficulty of certain bits was changed and adjusted a few bits in combat (such as the counter window time). The camera, vehicles and physics have also seen their fair share of love as well and so have the DLCs.

Mojang Purchased by Microsoft - briefly
(hx) 03:39 PM EDT - Sep,15 2014 - Post a comment
Microsoft today announced the purchase of Mojang, the Swedish-based development studio behind massive hit Minecraft. Confirmation of the $2.5 billion deal comes a week after rumors hit that the two companies were in talks over an acquisition. In a press release, Microsoft officials said they expect the acquisition to be "break-even" in Fiscal Year 2015, which ends June 30, 2015, on a GAAP basis. The deal is expected to close in late 2014. The founders of Mojang, including Markus "Notch" Persson, will all be leaving.
It was reassuring to see how many of your opinions mirrored those of the Mojangstas when we heard the news. Change is scary, and this is a big change for all of us. It's going to be good though. Everything is going to be OK. <3

Please remember that the future of Minecraft and you - the community - are extremely important to everyone involved. If you take one thing away from this post, let it be that.

We can only share so much information right now, but we’ve decided that being as honest as possible is the best approach. We’re still working a lot of this stuff out. Mega-deals are serious business.

Why did you sell Minecraft?
Minecraft has grown from a simple game to a project of monumental significance. Though we’re massively proud of what Minecraft has become, it was never Notch’s intention for it to get this big.

As you might already know, Notch is the creator of Minecraft and the majority shareholder at Mojang. He’s decided that he doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a company of such global significance. Over the past few years he’s made attempts to work on smaller projects, but the pressure of owning Minecraft became too much for him to handle. The only option was to sell Mojang. He’ll continue to do cool stuff though. Don’t worry about that.

There are only a handful of potential buyers with the resources to grow Minecraft on a scale that it deserves. We’ve worked closely with Microsoft since 2012, and have been impressed by their continued dedication to our game and its development. We’re confident that Minecraft will continue to grow in an awesome way.

Minecraft means many different things to millions of people across the world, and to each and every Mojangsta. We feel that this is the best way for everyone - you guys included - to benefit
