Another week, another round-up of the top gaming stories. Take a look at our favorite news stories from the last seven days.
AMD Ryzen 4000G
This week saw Team Red announce their latest product, the AMD Ryzen 4000G. These new integrated graphics are set to challenge the i7-9700 from Intel as part of the ongoing battle between the two chip manufacturers. Prices haven’t been announced yet, but we’re estimating they’ll come in at around $150 when they do release.
Rocket League Going Free-To-Play
After five years of car-based football fun, Rocket league announced that it would be going free to play. While they haven’t told us a date for this switch yet, it is going to coincide with the release of the title on the Epic Games Store. If you’ve already splashed the cash to buy the game, you won’t miss out entirely. Owners of the game will be granted “Legendary” status and be granted a whole bunch of in-game exclusives.
UFC 4 Not On PC?
We asked the important question this week of why upcoming title UFC 4 won’t be made available for PC. EA usually make their sports games available for us PC gamers, but for some reason, not this one. What’s the deal EA? Why you gotta do us dirty like this? Anyway, our News Editor Lewie tried to get to the bottom of it for us this week in the piece below.
Amazon Slashing RAM Prices
We love a good deal here at WePC and always have our eyes on Amazon to see what we can get our hands on. This week, one of our eagle-eyed team spotted a great deal on 32GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3000 MHz DDR4 DRAM. A mouthful, yes, but also a great deal as Amazon slashed the price to just over $100 - a sweet $50 discount.
Looking Back With AMD
The last twelve months have been one hell of a journey for AMD. It was July 2019 when they released their flagship AMD Ryzen 3000 series and really turned up the heat on Intel. We took a look back over the last year for AMD to breakdown all the great releases they’ve had.
World’s First 4TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 Drive Launched
Sabrent are no strangers to world firsts when it comes to new tech launches, and it looks like they’ve done it again with their latest product. Spotted on Amazon, this impressive SSD definitely caught our attention. The speeds seem almost too good to be true, and they come with a price to match but if this listing turns out to be legit, it could be very exciting.
