Max Payne 3 Gaming and 3D Vision
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:13P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Max Payne 3 is the latest chapter in the 3rd person shooter title which debuted over 11 years ago for the PC. Max Payne is now living thousands of miles away from the grit and grim of New York and working in private security detail for a power Brazilian family in Sao Paolo. It is not all sunshine, beaches, and babes in bikinis for Max however, as he finds himself in the middle of a sprawling conspiracy involving all manner of Brazilian scum from the crevices of the Favela, the swampland militias as well as the ivory tower of ambitious politicians who would stop at nothing to add a few more zeroes to their paycheck. Max Payne 3 for the PC boasts detailed DirectX11 graphics and resurrects the "bullet time" gameplay everyone enjoyed in the original title that debuted over a decade ago now."

AMD Heaven GamExperience
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 5:18P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has joined forces with HeavenMedia for a European tour, mainly targeting the gamers audience. AMD's FX Bulldozer CPU's have been labeled as too slow in many hardware reviews. Even tough the new Bulldozer architecture looked initially very promising on paper, the performance was heavily dependent on the application being used. Sometimes performing mediocre, even slower than the previous generation Thuban processors. However sometimes beating similar priced Intel CPU's. On top of that, the infamous 8 core marketing strategy error, set some real bad blood. As performance in many multi-threaded applications was unexpectedly low. To be honest, these Bulldozer CPU's were not really worthy to be named after the world famous FX series. But AMD fought back with some insane CPU-Z suicide runs and this GamExperience tour is very welcome to warm up the gamers again for the AMD hardware lineup.

Max Payne 3: Gorgeous, Gritty, And Dumb
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let's cut right to the chase. The first and most important thing you need to know about Max Payne 3 is this: It's not a happy game, though its graphics engine sure is gorgeous. In Max Payne 3, you play a bitter, middle-aged drunk. Max remains unnaturally eagle-eyed and spry enough in combat, but there's nothing like vomiting into the sink after a night of binge drinking to kill your sense of accomplishment. So no. It's not a happy game. If you're looking for that sense of righteousness brought on by being the rogue cop who delivers the sort of rough justice "the system" can't, you won't find it here but the scenery is nice at least...

CyberPowerPC Zeus Thunder 2500 SE Gaming PC Review
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago, CyberPowerPC unveiled a new line of custom gaming PCs under the “Zeus” moniker that promised impressive specs and features at a relatively low price. As it turns out, there are plenty of Zeus models available (nine at present, by our count), which provides a plethora of starting price points. For $1,125, you can nab a basic Zeus Thunder 1000, but a top-of-the-heap Zeus Thunder Max starts at $3,735. Right smack dab in the middle of the Zeus family price ladder is the Zeus Thunder 2500 SE, a $1,899 rig that CyberPowerPC sent us to play with...

     Wed, Jun 20 2012 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Many people have wondered about the future of video games in recent years, and at E3 2012, graphics card masters Nvidia tackled this question head-on. Their answer? That all video games in the future will run from the cloud. That’s right, just as Spotify streams music and Netflix streams movies, Nvidia believe that their service will stream video games."

Max Payne 3 Performance Tested, Benchmarked
     Wed, Jun 20 2012 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you've been a gamer for at least a decade, then you will recognize Max Payne as the PC third-person shooter of the early 2000s. Notable for its film noir style and use of the bullet time effect (The Matrix), Max Payne's character went on to surpass anyone's expectations with several console ports, a sequel, and a feature film adaptation in 2008. It's been hinted that Max Payne 3 will make the most of current high-end PCs, with DirectX 11 tessellation compatibility and "advanced graphics options" available to PC players. So with that in mind let’s take a look at the test setup and then get into the results. Make sure you check out our visual tour comparing DX9 through DX11 graphics.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
