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.

    I don't know what's more delusional, Intel selling a 500Watt CPU
    or fanboys thinking that this product will sell well at $3000.

    Listen buddy, most sales from these systems come from Dell, HP and/or Lenovo workstations.
    Nobody is going to bother messing with a cpu that's a fire hazard, gives you the same PCI-e lanes as a $300 CPU and you are obliged, as Dell/HP/Lenovo, to buy special motherboards from asus or another manufacturer.
    Finally, the product placement here from Purch media targets Gamers, plus intel targets gamers.
    This is just a shelf product, just like 8700k and 9900k to fight for the first position in some benchmarks, against zen, due to the unfortunate circumstances of zen being that good.
    This product takes binned cpus away from much higher priced Xeons. They are not going to make great numbers available, by default, even if they could supply the market.

    "delusional", "fanboys", "Listen buddy", "fire hazard"

    You don't have to get so emotional to make a point.

    I like my comments to be vivid.
    I don't write NPC comments.

    Then you should move to somewhere like Wccftech, where you won't even have to rationalize picking fights and being gratuitously rude. People like you ruin the tone of a quality forum. Reply

    Being vulgar and crass isn't the same as being "vivid". If you cannot reply without resorting to name calling, then this not the place for you. Reply

    What part of his comment insulted you, snowflake? Reply

    I didn't say he's not right.

    None. The point is this is a tech site. There is no need for such remarks.

    "Snowflake"

    This is what I'm talking about. Randomly calling people names with no reason. You don't even know me.

    I've run a lot of paper and pencil RPGs over the years and I'm disappointed to say that a number of my cookie cutter NPCs had more personality than some of the player characters, but I'm one of those story first GM types. Reply

    You have no idea what professional software costs. In the end my clients dont care if the PC costs 5000USD, 7000 USD or 12000USD.
    The difference disapear when you add the software costs and my fee.
