Hardware | Leaked photo confirms AMD's X670 Extreme chipsets

Leaked photos from an MSI meeting confirm that AMD is indeed preparing Extreme variants of the X670 and B650 chipsets.

The footage was published by Twitter user @wxnod, who recently shared a prototype AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs. The new photos show a presentation in an MSI office, presumably by or with AMD experts.

Apparently AMD is currently working on four different chipsets for the Ryzen 7000 platform. This includes the aforementioned X670 and B650 models, but also the previously mysterious Extreme variants (X670E and B650E) of that pair.

The differences between them seem quite clear. Where the regular chipsets come with a PCIe 5.0 slot or a PCIe 5.0 M.2 slot, the Extreme motherboards do both. Both a PCIe 5.0 graphics card and a new PCIe 5.0 SSD can use the new interface simultaneously.

News | Servers Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout can't handle popularity

The servers of party game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout have succumbed to the attention a number of times. The game launched yesterday and is free for PlayStation Plus members.

The game is sort of a battle royale version of a game show like Takeshi’s Castle of Wipeout. Players have to survive all kinds of bizarre obstacles and win strange games in different rounds. In the end, one winner remains.

“We need more time to create the game that you are waiting for,” said Andy Kipling and Brian Mitsoda. “Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is still coming out in 2020, but we believe quality is more important than releasing the game in the first quarter. It was not an easy choice. During 2019 we improved our processes and expanded our teams, but it soon became clear that this was not enough to deliver quality on the agreed date. “

Bloodlines 2 is set in Seattle, where a blood war is going on between various vampire actions. The story adapts depending on whether the player can ensure that humanity continues to think that vampires do not exist. In terms of gameplay, developer Hardsuit Labs promises fast melee combat and a complete city to explore.

The game will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
