$700,000 for a 4000R curved gaming “monitor”
Introducing perhaps the world’s baddest curved gaming monitor. Continuing to talk about “monitor” would probably be too good. It’s a video wall and it’s composed that way. The (700) small panels are mounted on a curved load-bearing structure, which in turn occupies what appears to be a not exactly small space. Unfortunately, the first-hand technical details are pretty poor, but the video wall is known to be controlled as two screens and played with a Geforce RTX 3060. That sounds strange at first, but there is a control technology between the display panels and the graphics card that makes the whole party possible in the first place. The facility is said to be worth more than $700,000.
Zotac Geforce RTX 3090 Ti PGF OC: 4 slots against 500 watts
Graphics card air coolers are getting more and more expansive: the Zotac Geforce RTX 3090 Ti PGF OC now fills all 4 slots and actually occupies five of the typical seven expansion slots on an ATX system. This correctly raises the question of what the trend will look like and if and how it can be countered.
In any case, the Geforce RTX 3090 Ti PGF OC, which converts almost 500 watts into frames and heat, does not fit into a small case. In addition to the four slot widths, there’s a height of 7.3 centimeters, meaning it already towers over fairly large cards like the AMP, which measures 3.5 slots and 6.5 centimeters. The AMP is 5 centimeters longer.
RDNA 2 update: three new Radeons in May
With the Geforce RTX 3090 Ti launching on March 29, you can now focus on the Radeon update, which should be available shortly. According to rumors, the release is scheduled for early May. The cards mainly bring faster memory modules, but higher boost values are not out of the question either. Images of the benchmark refrigerators are making the rounds.
Return to Monkey Island: Ron Gilbert with the “real Monkey Island 3”?
Ron Gilbert’s April Fool’s joke turns out to be true: Devolver Digital and Terrible Toybox were able to wrest the rights to the Monkey Island brand from Disney. A new adventure from the legendary pirate game is coming, and it may very well be the “real Monkey Island 3” that many have been waiting for decades, as Gilbert takes the reins of Return to Monkey Island. And best of all: it will still arrive in 2022, according to the trailer.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D: release of the first synthetic benchmarks
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is said to be AMD’s fastest gaming processor and the final upgrade option for Socket AM4. Now, the Peruvian website XanxoGaming has been able to buy and test a copy two weeks before the official launch: the first results are sobering. But luckily there are also leaks with values from the first game that look completely different.
