As I like a quiet rig I prefer to play certain games at around 60FPS rather than them screaming passed 300, Also helps to save a little power

Never been a fan of ASUS products, but this intrigues me. Wonder when we can get some early reviews done

Mouse with a joystick. Personally I see this as a useful tool in the office rather than gaming.

Vulkan Specification 1.2 released
https://www.anandtech.com/show/15401...ation-released

Almost entirely developer focused. So us gamers won't see much of a difference. BUT its easier for developers, better optimization, visual quality, and since it's easier to use, LESS BUGS!

Perfect time for a new API update. As mentioned in the article, Windows 7 is now EOL. Windows 8 is similar to 10(less platform-specific code). Next-Gen consoles are shipping soon, which means API development will be at a very high level as programmers need to acclimate with the market changes.

I do wonder if PS will use a custom Vulkan instead of their own proprietary API. It could really ease the load on Devs, make games cheaper, etc.


Main reason to get excited though, Kronos Group have fully implemented NATIVE SUPPORT for HLSL from MS's D3D. It compiles it down to SPIR-V, which lets it work with Vulkan.

AKA this means expect more Linux Support. Since Developers now have native access they can have a much (x100) easier time porting and getting Windows games on Linux. Wine Windows Compatibility, Valve's Proton tool and DXVK are supported.

Z490 boards will not support PCI 4.0

Plan was to add it in, but then Intel removed this due to Jitter issues in the Chipset signal. That meant instability in data signalling. Intel failed to meet the requirements of pcie 4.0

I have heard from a reliable source that this rumour is complete nonsense.
