Resolution scaling is a great option if you're looking to gain an additional 10-15% performance after tweaking settings. If you're playing at a high resolution like 4K, and you combine res scaling with image sharpening, the results are often very close to native.
Computer technology is no strange to acronyms: CPU, RAM, SSD, to name but a few. Ever so often, new ones appear on the scene in the never-ending quest to improve the capabilities of our computing devices. Today we'll explain processor instruction set extensions MMX, SSE, and AVX.
Whenever you think of mobile computing, Arm is likely the first company that comes to mind, or it should be. Billions of Arm chips are used on phones, TVs, embedded systems and tablets. But they're coming for more.
Ever since Apple's M1 SoC launched, the tech community has been abuzz trying to draw comparisons to see where it stands in terms of performance and efficiency against Intel or AMD. Here's why we think M1 is a very relevant development in the world of computer hardware.
It's been nearly a decade and two console generations since Skyrim came out in 2011. The Elder Scrolls VI is eventually coming, but as the franchise turns 26, we're looking back at how things got started with the RPG series that set players free to choose their own fates.
