Our most sincere respects and condolences go out to the family of Sheng-Chang Chiang and MSI.

Microsoft is reportedly interested in buying WB Games

Back in June, we reported that the gaming division of Warner Bros. was reportedly up for sale. At the time, it was claimed that Take-Two, EA, and Activision Blizzard were all interested in the acquisition. Now, according to one publication another major name can be added to the list of potential buyers.

This report comes via the digital media company ‘The Information’ which states that “Microsoft has expressed interest in acquiring the games division of Warner Bros., the publisher behind popular game franchises based on Batman, Harry Potter and other characters, according to two people familiar with the situation.”

As previously mentioned, Microsoft isn’t the first gaming company to throw its name into the hat. Other publishers including Take-Two Interactive, Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard have all reportedly expressed interest.

Microsoft is without a doubt the biggest company on the list based on revenue and market value. Furthermore, the tech giant is also responsible for manufacturing the Xbox line of consoles. Should Microsoft choose to purchase WB Games, it’ll certainly be an interesting development – especially as all previous WB games have been multi-platform.

As of right now, neither Microisoft nor Warner Bros. have commented on the matter. Still, with so many parties interested in the potential purchase of Warner Bros. Games, it’ll undoubtedly be interesting to see who – if any – ends up on top.

KitGuru says: Which publisher would you like to see buy WB Games? Who do you think will end up buying the conglomerate’s gaming division? When do you think we’ll hear from Rocksteady’s latest project? Let us know down below.

Deepcool Castle 280EX AIO CPU Cooler Review

When the Deepcool Castle 280EX AIO landed on my doorstep for review, it was like meeting up with an old friend. The Castle 240EX was one of the first AIO coolers I reviewed for KitGuru and is still one of the best closed-loop coolers we have tested over the past 12 months or so. Since the Castle 280EX is equipped with a larger radiator and 140mm fans, we expect a performance improvement over the 240EX, but just how will the Castle 280EX stack up against some of the more recent AIOs we have tested? Let’s find out.

Watch via our Vimeo Channel (Below) or over on YouTube at 2160p HERE.

Other than the new 280mm radiator, everything about the Deepcool Castle 280EX looks identical to its original 240mm and 360mm counterparts that were released last year. Deepcool’s patented Anti-Leak Technology is once again a feature of the Castle 280EX, inside the radiator is an EPDM pressure relief bag that contracts to create a void when pressure rises to relieve pressure inside the radiator and therefore, lowering the risk of a leak.

In keeping with the other two coolers of the Castle EX series, the 280EX is outfitted with Deepcool’s Tri-Phase motor that provides the pump with a rotational speed of 2550 RPM and an almost silent 17.8dBA noise output level, as well as a copper micro-channel cold plate for efficient transfer of heat and Deepcool TF-S series high static pressure fans, with a speed range of 400-1600 RPM.

Deepcool AIOs are designed in house, so they are not just another Asetek or CoolIT rebranded unit with a customised pump top like some other AIOs on the market. The company uses a split chamber pump/CPU block arrangement to avoid any Asetek patent infringement, a design that has proven to offer efficient heat transfer in previous coolers.

As typical with modern AIO coolers, the Castle 280EX uses reinforced rubber tubing, covered with a braided nylon sleeving for a premium appearance as well as an aluminium core radiator. However, unlike many of the current crop of AIOs in recent times, the RGB lighting of the Castle EX series is quite subtle. Only the CPU block is equipped with RGB lighting and the fans are an understated all-black design.

A rather unique feature of the Castle 280EX is the CPU block aesthetics, the top cover of the Castle EX CPU block is removable. Once the cover has been removed the GamerStorm logo can either be rotated to ensure the orientation is facing the correct way up or alternatively, the logo can be removed and replaced with a custom logo of your own via the blank that Deepcool includes inside the box.

In addition to the customisable logo, the top portion of the CPU block also includes RGB lighting effects. Beneath the two-way mirror top cover is a large circular RGB zone that extends to a create a thin RGB line around the circumference of the block. The Deepcool Castle 280EX RGB lighting effects can either be synchronised from a motherboard via the 3-pin 5v addressable RGB header or controlled by a simple RGB lighting hub that is included in the box.

CPU socket compatibility of the Castle EX series is extensive, all current mainstream desktop platforms from both Intel and AMD are covered including Intel LGA 115x, 1366, 2066 and 2011, AMD AM4, AM3+, AM3/+, AM2/+, FM2 and FM1 as well as AMD high-end desktop TR4/TRX40 Threadripper. The new Intel LGA1200 socket isn’t listed as compatible on the packaging, however, since LGA1200 uses the same mounting system as LGA115x, we expect the Castle 280EX should work on this platform just fine.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti Rumored Specifications Appear

NVIDIA is slowly preparing to launch its next-generation Ampere graphics cards for consumers after we got the A100 GPU for data-centric applications. The Ampere lineup is getting more and more leaks and speculations every day, so we can assume that the launch is near. In the most recent round of rumors, we have some new information about the GPU SKU and memory of the upcoming GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti. Thanks to Twitter user kopite7kimi, who had multiple confirmed speculations in the past, we have information that GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti use a GA104 GPU SKU, paired with GDDR6 memory. The cath is that the Ti version of GPU will feature a new GDDR6X memory, which has a higher speed and can reportedly go up to 21 Gbps.

The regular RTX 3070 is supposed to have 2944 CUDA cores on GA104-400 GPU die, while its bigger brother RTX 3070 Ti is designed with 3072 CUDA cores on GA104-300 die. Paired with new technologies that Ampere architecture brings, with a new GDDR6X memory, the GPUs are set to be very good performers. It is estimated that both of the cards would reach a memory bandwidth of 512 GB/s. So far that is all we have. NVIDIA is reportedly in Design Validation Test (DVT) phase with these cards and is preparing for mass production in August. Following those events is the official launch which should happen before the end of this year, with some speculations indicating that it is in September.

Watch Dogs 2 is free on PC during the Ubisoft Forward event – here’s how to get it

Watch Dogs 2 is free for PC this weekend, but you’ll have to watch the Ubisoft Forward virtual showcase if you want to grab it.

You can get Watch Dogs 2 for free by watching Ubisoft Forward

Ubisoft’s big E3-replacing livestream is coming up soon and to entice you to tune in, the publisher is giving away free copies of Watch Dogs 2 to all viewers. 

The announcement comes via a trailer posted to Ubisoft’s YouTube channel. During the trailer, we get some teases for what’s to come at Ubisoft Forward, as well as confirmation that Watch Dogs 2 for PC will be given away to those watching:

Ubisoft Forward kicks off with a pre-show, which will contain smaller announcements for content updates coming to Trackmania, Just Dance 2020, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint and The Division 2. Then, during the main event, we’ll be getting details on Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, Hyper Scape and a couple of other big titles- one of which is rumoured to be Far Cry 6.

For those who have never played Watch Dogs 2, then this is an easy way to get hold of the game. Unlike the first game, Watch Dogs 2 injects more humour and introduces a more likeable cast of characters. The main story is set in San Francisco, with players taking on the role of Marcus Holloway, a young hacker that was wrongfully accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Ubisoft Forward begins with a pre-show at 19:00 BST/11:00 PDT on the 12th of July. The main event takes place one hour later at 20:00 BST/12:00 PDT.

KitGuru Says: Are many of you planning on watching Ubisoft Forward later this week?
