As was bound to happen, an early benchmark comparison claiming to represent NVIDIA's not-yet-released (to retail) GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card has leaked out. If the numbers are to believed (and they certainly look plausible), the GeForce RTX 2080 Super falls squarely between a Titan Xp and Titan V in performance. We will get to the numbers in a moment, but first let's recap the specs. The GeForce RTX 2080 Super sports 3,072 CUDA cores and features base and boost clocks of 1,650MHz and 1,815MHz, respectively. It also has 8GB of GDDR6 memory piping data through a 256-bit bus at 15.5Gbps, which pegs the memory bandwidth at 496GB/s. Twitter user and notorious leaker APISAK spotted the benchmark...

Things have been relatively quiet on the Vega 20 front for months, but we're now getting a mouthful thanks to a fresh leak from the Final Fantasy XV benchmark. An AMD engineering sample with the 66AF:C1 device ID is making the rounds and if offers up an interesting performance profile. Vega 20 will be one of the first 7nm GPU products that AMD introduces, and it will be [primarily] used in Radeon Instinct graphics accelerators that are dedicated for machine learning tasks. Radeon Instinct cards traditionally don't include any external display connectors, which leads further credence to this card being an engineering sample with actual HDMI/DisplayPort connectors. With respect to performance,... Read more...
At this point, there is a lot of information out there about NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce RTX graphics cards, including details on pricing and availability, and a deep dive into the underlying Turing architecture. All that is really left to know is what kind of performance the new cards will deliver. Reviewers are under embargo at the moment, though a set of leaked results for Final Fantasy XV provide a glimpse of how the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti compares to previous generation cards. What makes this leak data somewhat unique is that the results appear in Square Enix's official Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition database, rather than some random website or web forum. That doesn't mean there isn't... Read more...
It's no longer a surprise when we hear about brand-new game releases being cracked days after launch, but it's not often we hear about one fully cracked even before its release. Unfortunately for Square Enix, its latest epic adventure Final Fantasy XV on Windows has been cracked and released online ahead of its March 6 release. If not for a couple of simple things, this wouldn't have happened, so we're bound to see things change a little bit going forward. Over at Origin, the game can be preloaded (FFXV is not an EA title, but is one of the rare ones to be sold on its service), and the fact that it preloads completely unencrypted is where Square Enix got burned. But only because it was kind enough... Read more...
In just a few weeks, Square Enix will finally release Final Fantasy XV for PC, and the promise ever since the publisher announced minimum and recommended system requirements back in October is that it will run on a wide variety of systems. If you are in doubt, however, or just want to see how well (or not so well) your particular setup will run the game, Square Enix has made available a benchmark tool. We kicked its tires and have a few numbers to share. Before we get to the numbers, let's talk a bit about the requirements and the benchmark. One of the neat things about Final Fantasy XV arriving to PC is that it is bringing support for 4K resolution monitors and high dynamic range (HDR) visuals,... Read more...
Well here is some good news for fans of the Final Fantasy franchise. When Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition finally arrives on PC next year, it will not require a monster setup to run. Square Enix revealed the game's minimum and recommended system requirements on the title's listing in the Microsoft Store, and by the looks of it, a modest PC will be enough to get the game up and running. Even the recommended specs are reasonable. Starting with the minimum system requirements, the game will run on a system with an Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD FX-6100 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a GeForce GTX 760 graphics card. So basically anyone with a modern setup should be able to fire up Final Fantasy XV and play... Read more...
PC gamers who also happen to be fans of the Final Fantasy franchise have a lot to be excited about. The latest installment in the franchise is coming to Windows 10 PCs complete with the ability to support 4K resolutions. Despite the fact that other games in the franchise have seen PC ports, the game is still more of a console franchise. With the latest installment the developers behind Final Fantasy XV want to give PC gamers the features that will make the game a must-buy. PCGamer spoke with game director Hajime Tabata about the PC version of the game, "I think the very first step towards that, we've exceeded. With our technical partnership and joint-development with NVidia—I think we managed... Read more...
It is finally happening, folks. Final Fantasy XV is trading its console attire for PC digs, Square Enix announced at Gamescom 2017. The game will arrive on PC early next year, bringing with it all available DLC and updates. It will also come dressed to impress with several graphical upgrades, including a bump to native 4K resolution graphics (if your PC can handle it), with graphical options to support up to 8K. Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will also feature high dynamic range (HDR10) support, provided you pair the game with a Windows 10 Creators Update compatible display, several NVIDIA technologies underneath the hood to spruce up the graphics. And the following are the recommended system... Read more...
Square Enix is set to release Final Fantasy XV to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this month. It's the fifteenth main installment in the Final Fantasy series, one of the most popular gaming franchises that has been sending players on quests for nearly three decades. Final Fantasy has stood the test of time, but can it stand up to scrutiny by Conan O'Brien, otherwise known as The Clueless Gamer? Anyone familiar with The Clueless Gamer knows what to expect from a Conan O'Brien evaluation—lots of laughs, basically. This time around, avid gamer and fantasy actor Elijah Wood comes along for the ride, joining Conan in taking an early look at Final Fantasy XV. The duo wastes no time in getting... Read more...
Square Enix is putting the word out to retailers and the public at large that Final Fantasy XV will not ship on September 30, 2016, as previously stated at Pax Prime. The new release date is November 29, 2016, which gives Square Enix a couple of extra months to apply some final coats of polish. While that might be disappointing to some fans, the good news here is that it's practically finished and almost ready to finally ship. That's nothing to take for granted. Final Fantasy XV was first announced to be in development a decade ago at the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). After several years went by without much information on the game, some questioned whether the 15th major installment... Read more...
