    Quake 2 RTX

    NVIDIA and id Software have released a new update for Quake 2 RTX. According to the teams, Patch 1.5 adds support for ray tracing using the `VK_KHR_ray_query` extension API.
    This new extension promises to improve performance and according to some early reports, it really does.

    Moreover, Update 1.5 fixes a crash that occurred on some systems when the users have minimized the game. It also fixes the out-of-bounds addressing of the framebuffer array.

    As always, Steam will download this latest patch the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.

    Quake 2 RTX Update 1.5 Release Notes
    New Features:

    • Added support for ray tracing using the `VK_KHR_ray_query` extension API.
      NOTE: This is an optional feature, and the two previously supported methods, `VK_NV_ray_tracing` and `VK_KHR_ray_tracing_pipeline`, are still supported.
    • We recommend using NVIDIA Graphics Driver version 465 or newer, or AMD Radeon Software version 21.3.1 or newer.
    Fixed issues:
    • Fixed the crash that happened on some systems when the game is minimized
    • Also fixed the invalid Vulkan API usage that happened in the bloom pass
    • Fixed the invalid barrier for an inter-queue resource transition
    • Also fixed the out-of-bounds addressing of the framebuffer array
    Misc Improvements:
    • Reduced the delay after resolution changes by avoiding re-initialization of the RT pipelines.
    • Changed the memory type required for the UBO and transparency upload buffers to `(HOST_VISIBLE | HOST_COHERENT)`.
    • Improved logging around SLI initialization.

    NVIDIA H100 Hopper GPU: 43008 CUDA Cores Across 336 SMs Coupled To 48 GBs Of HBM4 Memory

    Jensen has a foolproof way to fight miners with Geforce Pro Gamer program


    Of course, none of this matters if gamers can't actually buy the GPU so I was pleasantly surprised to hear that NVIDIA has a foolproof way of dealing with miners. They are partnering up with Steam and Epic Games store to enable in-store purchases of GPUs for verified and aged accounts.
    We are told that a large number of allocations will be made available through this program. This is actually brilliant because only allowing the GPU to be purchased in-store would eliminate most of the bots, scalping, and hacks.
    NVIDIA said initially they will require an aged account that is at least 2 years old and has had a minimum level of yearly activity to purchase these.

    NVIDIA's Hopper GPUs will be available at MSRP using in-store purchases on Steam and Epic Games.
    This means that even if miners and scalpers created 100s of accounts and started aging right now, they would not be able to game the system for another 2 years (by which time the Samsung/TSMC supply bottleneck should be finished at any rate).
    EPIC store and Steam will also require additional account verification against a KYC form. The KYC form will verify the identity of the account holder using a national ID card (the contents of the process are heavily predicted) and you will only be able to hold one account per ID.

    This is to ensure that people do not start selling aged accounts to scalpers or miners. As far as we can see, the KYC + in-store purchase should completely eliminate miners' ability to scoop up GPUs in bulk and I am fairly certain most gamers would be willing to jump through the KYC hoops to get a GPU at MSRP.
    KYCs are also a standard affair in stock exchanges and other financial products. Of course, GPUs will still be available at extreme premiums on retailers like Amazon and eBay, and scalpers/miners are free to buy those at will.

    Next Assassin´s Creed is returning to the Third Crusade?

    Jonathan is a french youtuber who has been teasing the next Assassin´s Creed for a while now. He had info before on Valhalla, even naming the protagonist as Jora (which was confirmed by Darby to be one of the earlier options for Eivor.
    In the final game, she still uses it in Vinland).

    A new leak surfaced last month about the next Assassin’s Creed game that we found really interesting. This leak/rumor originates from French YouTuber, Jonathan.
    Now in case you didn’t know, Jonathan had info before on Valhalla and was correct. These past few weeks, Jonathan has been teasing the next Assassin’s Creed game, so let’s see what could be in store for us.
