Gaming: Strange Brigade (DX12, Vulkan)

Strange Brigade is based in 1903’s Egypt and follows a story which is very similar to that of the Mummy film franchise. This particular third-person shooter is developed by Rebellion Developments which is more widely known for games such as the Sniper Elite and Alien vs Predator series. The game follows the hunt for Seteki the Witch Queen who has arose once again and the only ‘troop’ who can ultimately stop her. Gameplay is cooperative centric with a wide variety of different levels and many puzzles which need solving by the British colonial Secret Service agents sent to put an end to her reign of barbaric and brutality.

The game supports both the DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs and houses its own built-in benchmark which offers various options up for customization including textures, anti-aliasing, reflections, draw distance and even allows users to enable or disable motion blur, ambient occlusion and tessellation among others. AMD has boasted previously that Strange Brigade is part of its Vulkan API implementation offering scalability for AMD multi-graphics card configurations.

    Ian and readers, The ASUS ROG motherboard looks great the Intel 28 cores seem like a beast to, your scores might be way better if you contact ASUS and have them help you because you sound confused on what to set in BIOS and how to run high end system correctly. Reply

    3175X Intel’s biggest chip ever? Not really. You're missing it's predecessor from 1995 - the legendary Pentium Pro for Socket 8, which is even bigger that the Threadripper. Or maybe you're too young to remember even the Pentium II Xeon which superseded Pentium Pro in 1998.
    Ah, I miss good old days with Anand Lal Shimpi.

    I'm sure someone mentioned this already....

    Everyone is complaining so much about how expensive this processor is but I have two points to mention.
    - It's pretty much the same as Intel's top Xeon the 8180 which is a $10,000 processor.
    - AMD's processor is basically a fake, 4 processors in one (and I love AMD).
    So now a consumer can buy Intel's best Server processor for $7,000 less.

    Well, this is heavy price. Maybe fair, but availability is a madness. But taking in account LC i9--7980XE is the best here. It kills competition with speeds. On LC it can be clocked after precise regulation of voltages up to 4.8GHz and up to 4.7GHz with 128GB of 3200MHz RAM.
    I'm selling stations like that. Easy to build, easy to run, easy to cool. MBs at stock.
    That chip is just a showoff .
