If you’re in the market for a new GPU, you might want to pull the trigger now rather than later. Digitimes reports that the prices for GPUS memory from SK Hynix and Samsung have increased over 30% from July to August. This increase is due to manufacturers repurposing part of their VRAM production capacities for server and smartphone memory instead. And sources are saying that going into the month of September, prices are expected to keep rising. Personally, I think it the supply/pricing issue is getting out of hand. But I want to know what you guys think. Are these reports about pricing increases legit? Or are they manufactured? Or should we just blame cryptocurrency miners? Leave a comment, down below.
In Jack is going to be super disappointed news, Microsoft has confirmed that Crackdown 3 will be delayed. NOOOOOO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWaLxFIVX1s I love the crackdown series. For those of you who don’t know, Crackdown is Microsoft’s open world super power cop action game. The original release date for the 3rd installment of the franchise was slotted for November 7th, which also was the launch day for the new Xbox One X. Microsoft Studios publishing GM Shannon Loftis says that the company has chosen to delay the game’s release on both Xbox and PC to give the devs more time to polish the experience, so the game will now have a spring 2018 release. Oh, you better give us a polished game Microsoft… you better.
Here we go again. A particular Samsung phone is being recalled because the batteries have a risk of over heating. And no, it’s not the galaxy s8. It’s actually the Samsung Galaxy note 4. Reports say that about 10 thousand refurbished units are being recalled because somehow these phones ended up with counterfeit batteries. Now before you guys tear Samsung to shreds it’s technically not their fault this time as they’re not the ones refurbishing the phones. It’s actaully at&t and fedex that are to blame for the refurbishment program. Fedex is currently sending out replacement batteries. But more than likely, most of you watching don’t own a refurbished note 4 so we can relax just a wee bit.
