Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareIs your system up to snuff?

Activision caught a few gamers off guard when it posted minimum system requirements on Steam for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Specifically, the 6GB of RAM and 55GB of hard drive space seemed like steep requirements just to meet the minimum. Ready for some good news? You won’t need any additional storage space to meet Activision’s recommended system requirements for CoD: Advanced Warfare. However, you will need a well equipped machine.

As a refresher, here’s a look at the minimum requirements:

  • Windows 7 64-bit / Windows 8 64-bit / Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Intel Core i3 530 @ 2.93GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 810 @ 2.6GHz
  • 6GB RAM
  • Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI Radeon HD 5870 @ 1GB
  • DirectX Version 11
  • Broadband Internet connection
  • 55GB available space
  • DirectX compatible sound card

And here’s a look at the newly posted recommended requirements:

  • Windows 7 64-bit / Windows 8 64-bit / Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.3GHz
  • 8GB RAM
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 @ 4GB
  • DirectX Version 11
  • Broadband Internet connection
  • 55GB available space
  • 100 percent DirectX 9.0c compatible 16-bit sound card

While the storage space didn’t change, there’s a bump in RAM to 8GB, along with the recommendations for a faster CPU and GPU combination.

This could be where newer games are trending. According to Neogaf, the Korean distributor of Ubisoft Korea listed minimum and recommended specs for Assassin’s Creed: Unity, and they’re pretty burly. More specifically, you’ll need an Intel Core i5 2500K or AMD FX-8350, 6GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970, and 50GB of storage space to meet the minimum, and an Intel Core i7 3770 or AMD FX-8350, 8GB of RAM, and a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 290X to meet the recommended requirements.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1The biggest Nook device ever

With some help from Samsung, Barnes and Noble this week introduced the biggest size Nook ever at a special introductory price. For a limited time, you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Tab Nook 10.1 tablet for $300 (B&N members save an additional 10 percent), which comes with more than $200 of free content from the Nook store, including an assortment of bestselling books, popular TV shows, top magazines, and apps, B&N says.

The newest Galaxy Tab 4 Nook boasts a 10.1-inch HD display with a 1280×800 resolution and 149 ppi density. It has a 1.2GHz Qualcommm APQ 8026 processor with an Adreno 305 GPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage (around 12GB available to the user), microSD card slot, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 6,800mAh battery.

While relatively affordable for a 10.1-inch slate, some will undoubtedly be turned off (and away) by the underwhelming resolution at a time when competing tablets are pushing forward with increasingly higher resolutions and more densely packed pixels.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 will come with new Nook software that offers a cleaner visual design and user interface, new navigation tools, support for both portrait and landscape mode throughout the Nook experience, and a few other upgrades.

Though the new tablet is available now for $300, B&N didn’t say how long the introductory price would remain in effect.

AOC e1759FwuPair with your desktop or laptop

If you rock a dual-display setup at home, it can be difficult to adjust the single panel setup of your laptop when out and about on business trips. The solution? One way to restore that dual-display goodness is with AOC’s 17-inch USB Monitor (E1759FWU) powered by built-in DisplayLink technology. This newest model from AOC is thinner, lighter, and larger than the company’s previous USB offerings.

There’s no power cord or VGA cable to muck around with, just plug the panel into a USB 3.0 port and you’re good to go. It comes with a foldable stand that goes from landscape to portrait model with auto-pivot, along with a carrying case since one of the most likely uses is as a travel companion to your laptop. Once connected to your laptop (or desktop), the integrated DisplayLink graphics allow it to function as a secondary display.

The specs are decent, though not outstanding — it boasts a 1600×900 resolution rather than Full HD 1080p. It also has a 10ms rated response time (GTG), 650:1 contrast ratio, 220 cd/m2 brightness, and 90 degrees horizontal / 65 degrees vertical viewing angles.

Should you want a more permanent placement, it’s VESA 75mm x 75mm wall-mount compliant.

The AOC 17-inch USB Monitor is available now on Amazon for $200.

Lian Li PC-Q26A case for little boards and lots of storage

Lian Li just introduced its new PC-Q26 case. It’s a mini ITX enclosure for users who want to roll their own NAS box with support for up to 11 hard drives, including 10 3.5-inch drives and a single 2.5-inch drive. A hot-swap backplane for two 3.5-inch drives included, and you have the ability to “easily” add more backplanes as needed, Lian Li says. All that potential storage capacity comes wrapped in a small and lightweight brushed aluminum case.

Like a traditional case, the side-panels pop off for easy access to the system’s guts and storage. Drives can be tool-lessly installed using thumbscrews with rubber suspensions. You’ll also find thumbscrews holding the expansion slots in place.

Cooling duties are handled by three 120mm fans up front to bring cool air in and a 120mm fan up to top to expel hot air. You an also mount an optional 80mm fan on the rear and another 120mm on the side, for a total of six fans.

The case supports expansion cards up to 190mm (7.4 inches), CPU coolers up to 150mm (5.9 inches), PSUs up to 190mm (7.4 inches).

Lian Li says the PC-Q26 is available now in the U.S. for $189 MSRP.

Gigabyte Mini ITX GeForce GTX 970Tiny graphics card packs a Maxwell-sized bite

It’s not the size of the graphics card that matters, but the potency of the GPU inside, right? We’ll find out when we get our hands on Gigabyte’s mini ITX variant of the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970IXOC-4GD). Though it’s tiny by comparison to a full size GeForce GTX 970 video card, Gigabyte’s mini ITX version is actually overclocked to run at a base clockspeed of 1076MHz and a boost clockspeed of 1216MHz.

Nvidia’s reference design calls for a 1051MHz base clockspeed and 1178MHz boost clockspeed. Granted, Gigabyte’s overclock isn’t anything crazy, but considering the size of the card, even just running at stock clocks would have been noteworthy.

According to TomsHardware, the cooler is likely based on Gigabyte’s WindForce 3X design, except that it only has one fan instead of three. There’s an aluminum fin arry underneath, along with a Triangle Cool design to manipulate airflow more effectively.

Apparently it works — Gigabyte claims the card ran at 62C during a Metro Last Light benchmark, compared to a reference card running at 76C in the same test. That kind of cooling potential bodes well for a mini ITX system that’s short on space with limited airflow.

Gigabyte has priced the card at $330 and will start shipping it next month.
