    C: \ B_retro \ Issue_70 \: Sega Game Gear

    As a handheld game console of the 4th generation, the Sega Game Gear competed against the Nintendo Game Boy and the Atari Lynx from 1990 onwards. Although technically and graphically superior to the worldwide success of Nintendo, which has sold almost 120 million times, the Game Gear, as a portable master system, clearly lost out in favor of gamers.

    Nvidia GeForce RTX Serie 30: The shortage will last

    The success of GeForce RTX Series 30 graphics cards has been such that GPUs should still be unavailable for part of the year.   Barely officially announced, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3000 graphics cards quickly ran out of stock. It must be said that in addition to a particular strong global demand, both among players and among cryptocurrency miners, the manufacturer’s production capacities were largely hampered by the health crisis. At the same time, many scalpers have had their noses, buying GPUs in large quantities and then selling them at high prices on resale platforms. A few months ago, Nvidia officially confirmed that the shortage would last until the beginning of…

    Buy Radeon RX 6800/6900 XT: Numerous graphics cards are available from these retailers

    Review: On November 18th, the latest generation of AMD graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT, appeared. A little later, the current top GPU from AMD, the Radeon RX 6900 XT, followed. Instead of satisfied buyers who were able to give their PC a good performance boost, AMD left mainly frustrated prospects on the launch days, who capitulated either due to the low availability or the astronomical prices. Fortunately, the range of Big Navi graphics cards is now much better and some retailers can now buy the RX 6800 XT or RX 6900 XT without having to click through the shop at e-sports pace, because one fears the longed for…

    RTX 3060 with more graphics memory than RTX 3080: Nvidia explains the size

    January 15, 2021 at 9:31 am by Thilo Bayer – The Geforce RTX 3060 presented at the CES was particularly noticeable because of the generous graphics memory, which is even higher than the features of an RTX 3080. Nvidia now explains that there is more to it than just the size of the memory. We remember: The Geforce RTX 3060 planned for the end of February as a new entry-level amp solution has 12 GiByte memory and thus more than the Geforce RTX 3080 (10 GiB) and also more than the faster ampere cards RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 (8 GiB each). Of course, this raises questions that Nvidia is now answering. RTX 3060: It’s not just about…

    System Requirements: Outriders can handle six year old PCs

    The system requirements of the co-op shooter Outriders tend to be low. The relatively low requirements are hardly surprising; There is a tendency for online games to be aimed at a broad installation base that is secured by moderate requirements. An older mid-range computer is sufficient for 1080p and 60 FPS. What Square Enix specifies as the lower limit for the game doesn’t sound like much at first glance. Four computing cores at Intel or four modules at AMD and eight gigabytes of RAM are increasingly a minimum standard, but not extremely slow. However, the graphics cards mentioned have more than six years under their belt and were assigned to the lower middle class when they were released. For a…

    The N64 Mini portable exists … if you are good at 3D printing and soldering iron!

    A brilliant handyman managed to saw off the original motherboard of an N64 to create a mini, portable version of Nintendo’s old console. If you want the same, you will need original cartridges. And a lot of work! When he is bored, GmanModz tinkers with old consoles, notably the Nintendo 64, which he has already transformed in the past. This time, the modder  has transformed an old N64 into a true miniaturized portable console. No emulation here, but a machine that works with the original cartridges and that incorporates its own battery. Besides the 3D printing of the cabin, the sourcing of external components (joystick, battery), part of the challenge lies in reducing the size…

    Aerocool Cronus: An “X” marks the gaming case

    An “X”, elements in carbon look and RGB light on the front make the Aerocool Cronus a striking case that should look ” dynamic and powerful “. Behind it is a spacious chassis that accommodates normal systems with air cooling without restrictions. But the price seems difficult to achieve. According to the product page, the design was created by ThunderX3, an Aerocool gaming brand that offers eSports equipment.  This includes chairs and tables that are very similar to those of other providers. The “X” on the front is illuminated with LEDs and has a number of smaller openings that let air inside. The still fundamentally restrictive design does not suggest any cooling records. The Cronus is delivered with…

    Sony reportedly shipped a total of 3.4 million PS5s in 2020

    Even though many gamers still fail to buy a PS5 due to lack of stocks, Sony has reportedly made record production for its new PlayStation. On November 19, Sony launched its brand new PS5 in France (and elsewhere). A particularly popular next-gen console, a little too much besides, since even today, it is absolutely impossible to put your hand, in a calm and serene way, on the console. One might (rightly) think that Sony has produced a very limited number of PS5s, but in reality, the Japanese giant would have set a new record at this level.

    Tuto – How to disassemble PlayStation 5: unbelt the panels, add an SSD, replace the fan
