Make sure to watch the video at 1080p/60fps. The maps and models are looking badass, especially this early in development. You can download the UT launcher now to try it out.

I would consider this more of a proof-of-concept game.

AMD Looks To Be Dropping Support For Mantle

No comments:

In a blog post on Monday, AMD told developers that if they're interested in Mantle 1.0's functionality, they should focus their attention on DirectX 12 or GLnext. Fortunately, their will be DX12 compatible AMD and Nvidia cards. They're not going to completely kill-off Mantle, but will be more of a niche feature for their partners.

FCC Passes Net Neutrality Rules!

No comments:


This is awesome news for consumers and America's network infrastructure. What does this mean? 

- Internet service (land and mobile) will now be classified as a Title II utility, common carriers - the same as telephone, water and electricity services.

- Municipalities are now legally allowed to act as ISPs, create their own network and provide cheap high speed internet (ex. a Kansas town is offering internet, using existing business infrastructure, 1Gbps/1Gpbs for only $39/mon)

- Ban on paid priority bandwidth. ISPs will no longer be ale to throttle usage or enforce pay bandwidth barriers. Ideally, companies like Netflix will no longer have to pay extra to ISPs for bandwidth usage.

Of course, ISP lobbyists (Comcast, AT&T, Verizon) are going to fight and scratch against this, but Tom Wheelor, FCC Chairman, has already said to bring on the lawsuits.

DirectX 12's Explicit Asynchronous Multi-GPU = Nvidia & AMD Can Work Together In A Multi-GPU System

No comments:

DirectX 12 will treat any GPU configuration as one "pool" of graphical resources, basically getting rid of SLI and Crossfire - and hopefully all the compatibility issues of both the technologies. Look forward to see and hear more about this at GDC 2015.
