Fractal Design and ASRock collaborate for Meshify C Phantom Gaming case

August 7th 2020 at 10:30

Fractal Design and ASRock have collaborated to create the Meshify C TG Phantom Gaming Edition. As you would expect, this takes the excellent Meshify C TG chassis and spruces it up with ASRock’s Phantom Gaming design. 

The Swedish company, Fractal Design, and Taiwanese ASRock, have announced the Meshify C TG Phantom Gaming Edition, a chassis that has combined the specs of the original Meshify C TG and the design of the “Phantom Gaming”. The tempered glass panel has received the “Phantom Gaming logo plate” and has a design that blends diagonal lines of white and red. 

The main body has the dimensions 212 mm(w) x 395 mm(l) x 440 mm(h) and weighs in at 6.5 kg a bit over 14.33 lb. The chassis compatible with ATX, MicroATX, and Mini-ITX. The Meshify C TG Phantom Gaming Edition also comes with two pre-installed Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-12 120 mm fans for cooling.

If you want to see a more in-depth analysis of the Meshify C, then you are in luck. We reviewed it with its original coat of paint back in 2017.

KitGuru says: Are any of you in the market for a new case? What do you think of these recent ‘Phantom Gaming’ collaborations? We also saw one a few weeks ago from Antec and ASRock. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the second best selling Switch game of all time

August 7th 2020 at 10:28

There’s no denying that Animal Crossing: New Horizons exceeded everyone’s expectations when it released back in March. The social-sim game sold nearly 12 million copies in less than two weeks, cementing it instantly as one of the best-selling Switch games. Nintendo has now updated its sales figures, revealing that New Horizons has since sold a further 10 million copies.

These updated figures are accurate as of the 30th of June, meaning that the number is likely to be even higher. That being said, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has officially sold 22.4 million copies since its release on the 20th of March 2020, meaning that this milestone figure was reached in just over 3 months.

Furthermore, with 22.4 million copies sold, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has firmly secured itself as the second best selling game of all time on the Nintendo Switch. Currently, the best selling title is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which has sold a total of 26.74 million copies; at a distant third is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with 19.99 million.

With Nintendo also recently revealing that the Switch console has sold 61.44 million copies, this means that over one-third of all those who own a Nintendo Switch, also purchased Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With the game seeing such great success in such a short amount of time, and the fact that it continues to receive updates, it’ll be interesting to see whether New Horizons has the longevity to dethrone Mario Kart.

KitGuru says: Are you surprised by these figures? Do you own a Switch? Did you also buy Animal Crossing? Let us know down below.

Intel Tiger Lake launch event scheduled for September 2nd

August 7th 2020 at 10:00

Last month, Intel issued invites to media outlets, informing them that they had “something big to share” on September 2nd. Many thought this was referring to the announcement of the Tiger Lake architecture, but it seems that it is actually the launch date. Intel will also host another event on August 13th, where Raja Koduri will most likely provide updates on the Xe Graphics.

Intel teased the launch of its upcoming mobile architecture in early June, sending marketing kits to selected press members, and kept doing it throughout the Summer. Now, the company is about to finally reveal its latest mobile architecture to the public next month.

Intel has scheduled the virtual launch event for the Tiger Lake architecture for the 2nd of September, at 12:00 PM ET. As listed on Intel investors’ website, there’s not much more information regarding the event, besides that the link to the stream will be shared at a later date.

Additionally, Raja Koduri, chief architect and senior vice president of Intel’s discrete graphics division, will also feature in an event scheduled for August 13th, at 09:00 AM ET.

The title of the event “Updates from our chief architect, Raja Koduri” leads us to believe that he will share details about the Xe Graphics architecture, which will be used for the first time in Tiger Lake processors. The link to the live-stream of the event will be shared later by Intel.

KitGuru says: Are you looking forward to the launch of Tiger Lake architecture? What do you think that Raja Koduri will talk about on August 13th?

Apple Says Cloud Gaming Services Like Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud Violate App Store Guidelines

August 7th 2020 at 09:59
Cloud gaming is the next step in mobile gaming, with services like Microsoft project xCloud aiming to bring AAA titles right to your mobile phone. Microsoft has already been testing its xCloud application on Android and iOS devices for some time, and the application was supposed to launch sometime in September. However, it seems like Microsoft is only going to serve the customers on Android, as Apple says that these types of applications violate App Store guidelines. This doesn't only apply to xCloud, but also Google's Stadia gaming platform. When developer uploads application to App Store for iOS, the application goes through a review by Apple, for security reason and for Apple to check if it meets its guidelines.

Being that xCloud and Stadia are types of applications which offer a way to access many more applications (games in this case), this is against Apple's policy as they can't control the applications these services offer.
