Free Unreal and Unity plugin Steam Audio will let sounds bounce around virtual environmentsFree Unreal and Unity plugin Steam Audio will let sounds bounce around virtual environments

Sounds awesome. Pun deliberate and intended.

Anyway, on a serious note I am amazed that Valve is offering it for free. Such a high-tier audio system and for free? Really neat. Probably won't use this for my current game, because it is made to look and feel like early 3D games did (think Stunts, Virtua Racing, Alpha Waves/Continuum, any Freescape engine game, that sort of thing) so such advanced system wouldn't have its place here, but most likely will use it for the next one.

Intel to unveil their most advanced 10-core CPUs in AugustIntel to unveil their most advanced 10-core CPUs in August

Well, it's really not that crazy considering the power. Wonder how well it will be supported by the mobo vendors, so you can save on that.

You're right, considering the server/workstation power it's not that nuts. The time saving on rendering alone could make it worth the money. For us gamers though...


The mobo guys will love it tbough - a great excuse to put out new premium priced motherboards cos it's the high-end desktop market!


Though maybe the fact that Kaby Lake-X is just going to run dual-channel memory and not have so many cores will prompt them to make more affordable, cut-down X299 boards.

How to overclock: it's easier than you thinkHow to overclock: it's easier than you think
Darkhog Avatar

Heh, maybe. But my case doesn't have enough space for 4 ssd (both in terms of space for SATA SSDs that plug in into the drive bay and in terms of pci-e slots) and I need at least 1tb to be comfortable with all the shit I install/play.

Dave James Avatar

Yeah, in that case it's going to have to be an old spinning platter then I'm afraid, unless you start saving. 1TB SSDs are still about £300/$300 :(

I'm not worried about wireless lag. I'm worried about controller going dead in the middle of a hectic level and me losing because of it. As soon as they figure out wireless electricity (whatever way possible, but my bet is on converting radiowaves into electricity), I'll change it. But I won't risk getting dead batteries from too much play or because I forgot to charge the controller.Reply

Most games auto pause when the controller goes dead, though with Multiplayer you are SOL.

How do you overclock HDD? Because for me this is a limiting factor and sure as hell I won't be getting SSD (limited write cycles & far less space for the same price).Reply
Dave James Avatar

As far as I'm aware there is no way to overclock the standard spinning platters of a hard drive. The 10,000RPM Western Digital Raptor drives are the speediest traditional HDD I've seen and even then is a long way behind even old SSDs.


Though Intel were working on storage overclocking that was only for SSDs.

If the bottleneck in your system is the storage your only option is to upgrade to an SSD I'm afraid.


I believe the attrition rate on modern solid state drives though is getting beyond HDDs now and while there is far less space for the cash 250GB SSDs are now quite affordable.
