For the folks at home trying to figure out how well their GPUs can run the game in the first place, TechSpot has got you covered with a 38-GPU roundup on 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. Apparently, testing wasn’t easy, with accounts being banned in several cases due to an inappropriate number of GPUs or something. The post is a little vague on this intriguing point — intriguing because I’ve never heard of a system being banned from logging in on the basis of hardware configuration changes before, and though it’s been a while, I’ve used both Battlefield 3 and BF4 for benchmarking in the past.
Check TechSpot for the full details, but the 1080p results are below:
I’ve picked 1080p to discuss because this is the resolution for which we have any kind of RTX/ray tracing performance information. In August, reports from Nvidia’s Gamescom RTX launch stated that the RTX 2080 Ti appeared to be working hard to maintain a 60fps target at 1080p. Now we have at least some idea what 1080p performance might look like.
In Massive Shift, Apple Announces New Macs With ARM-Based M1 Chip
Apple saw huge success the last time it switched architectures to Intel, but this time? The jury's still out, but one thing is certain: Apple is about to make a lot more money.
Massive ‘Kilonova’ Explosion Shows First Observed Birth of a Magnetar
We've never seen a magnetar come into being, but a new high-energy event several billion light years away might be the first — a kilonova that signals the merging of two neutron stars.
A Massive Chip Shortage Is Hitting the Entire Semiconductor Industry
COVID-19, economic disruptions, yield issues, and the impact of scalping bots have all affected technology purchases this year, but there's a new argument for what's causing such general problems across so many markets: Insufficient investment in 200mm wafers.
Astronomers Find Oldest Supermassive Black Hole in the Universe
This recently spotted object is the oldest known quasar in the universe, with a supermassive black hole more than 13 billion years old. In fact, it's so old and huge that scientists don't know exactly how it could have formed.
