- Far Cry 3 Video Card Performance and
IQ Review - Far Cry 3 gives games an adrenaline shot that has been
needed. It supports many advanced DX11 graphics options to use the
features on our shiny Radeon HD 7000 series and GeForce GTX 600 series
video cards. The game looks fantastic! It gives current video cards a
challenge, it pushes these, and provides a need to have the latest and
greatest high-end video card, or go multi-GPU. Games like this move the
video card and gaming industry forward. It is clear Far Cry 3 was
tweaked for the PC, and is not just another console port. It has many
PC-centric features you'd find in a game geared for the PC, like the
option to select the field of view right from the graphics menu. That
is an often overlooked feature on PC games, but one that is important
to gamers. It also has an option to set buffered frames, again another
PC specific setting. It supports DX11, Mutisampling, Alpha to Coverage,
several advanced Ambient Occlusion methods, global illumination, and
many other welcomed features.
- Google is dropping Exchange ActiveSync
support for Gmail - The official Google blog states
that starting on January 30 "consumers won't be able to set up new
devices using Google Sync" although current Google Sync accounts will
continue to work. Google Sync was previously set up so people that used
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync could access Google Mail, Calendar and
Contacts. Google said, "With the recent launch of CardDAV, Google now
offers similar access via IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV, making it possible
to build a seamless sync experience using open protocols."
- Google vs. Apple Maps: Total
Domination - Google Maps for iOS
is so much better than Apple's attempt at a replacement that it will
make you giggle. But you can't grasp just how much better-almost
perfect-iOS Google Maps is unless you see it in action. Here it is,
head-to-head with Apple Maps.
- Police Caught an Anonymous Hacker by
Googling his IRC Name - Christopher
Weatherhead, who called himself "Nerdo" on the internet, was convicted
of conspiracy to impair the operation of computers last week. But the
DDoS attacks he instigated weren't pinned on him after weeks of covert
surveillance-instead, all it took was some judicious Googling.
According to The Register, police caught him after analysing
IRC logs, with his main error being sticking with his "Nerdo" handle
for a very long time, making it easy for cops to form an association
between Weatherhead and his actions by simply looking him up on the
- The Case for Apple's Stock Price
Falling to $270 - Apple has been
slumping. In September, the stock hit an all-time high of $705. On Monday morning, it briefly traded below $500 in
pre-market trading. (As of 11 a.m. ET, it was back up around $507.)
At least one analyst predicts it has much further to fall. Since
January, Edward Zabitsky of Toronto-based ACI Research has been arguing
that Apple (AAPL) is headed to $270 a share. He now sees the stock
reaching that level in 12 months
- How To End An Argument On The Internet
- Anyone who says "well, ban me if you want to, but…"
is actually saying "in the name of a loving God, please ban me because
I am losing this argument so badly that my only hope of escaping it
with a shred of dignity is if I can make myself out to be some sort of
martyr to free speech." You asked for it, you got it, Troll-ota.

|I play Far Cry 3 with all graphical settings highest at 1920x1080p (highest my tv/monitor goes). I have MSAA and SSAO on. i think HDAO and HBAO look terrible?? I haven't tested frame rate but it's certainly in the 40+ easy. I don't get stutter or loading and i also set GPU to 5frames loading. It's a gorgeous game indeed, night times are amazing with the burnt sky reflecting on the water in patches and shining through individual cracks in leaves. Also the gunshot direction is modeled superbly as is the muffled through dense foliage/trees or within buildings.
Trouble is, when you get as good as FC3 is, it's easier to ask for more. ie; better damage model on vehicles or tracks in the sand/road or craters with explosives. Grab a hang glider and set-out from a high peak and enjoy the eagles company and it is pure visual bliss! Texture detail is amazing down to deep pitted rust on boats and jeeps in a dimensional way.
Fast travel keeps this fresh to offload a full rucksack of spoils. The interface could do with an overhaul imo. The ability to multi-select items for selling/discarding would be grateful, you can't even mouse scroll the list. A definate console attribute, but not in gameplay or graphics.. not by a far cry MILE!!

Intel next-gen Haswell CPU line-up leaked
Interesting. I thought Intel would bring something new (i.e. increased speed), but it seems just an graphics chip update. It's good to know that Sandy Bridge was a good investment for years to come.
