According to SEfanatics, there is a reference in the latest edition of the official Sony Magazine, to a PSP-style phone possibly being released as soon as this month.
I’ll believe it when I see it, but the fact remains that Sony has filed a patent for such a device, and they may be able to surprise us, or at least semi-surprise us, if the thingamajig actually appears.
My only concern would be having to charge my phone every three hours …
Update 2010: Rumours are circulating again, almost two years later. Will we ever see this phone and PSP hybrid in production? Only time will tell.
NVIDIAs new Crysis-optimized beta drivers 169.01 and 169.04 were picked apart over at Elite Bastards, who could reveal shocking results. Apparently these drivers force removal of certain water/shadow effects, increasing performance at the expense of visual quality.
One can easily deduct that NVIDIA has made this move in order to better benchmarking results for their 8xxx line of graphics cards, trying to make them stand out more vs their AMD/ATI opponents. Elite Bastards conclude that this is not an issue in the official 163.69 drivers, and adds that the difference in performance between the old and new drivers is 7 %.
Users of the new drivers who prefer not to rollback can easily circumvent this game-specific “optimization” by renaming the “crysis.exe” file to “nvidiacheats.exe”.
