Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge There’s never been a better time to buy a new game console or PC. While consoles have typically been held back by weaker CPUs, spinning hard drives, and average GPU performance, the next-generation PS5 and Xbox Series S / X are promising some big leaps in performance that will put them beyond even average gaming PCs. Nvidia, meanwhile, is claiming it will deliver the “biggest breakthrough in PC gaming since 1999” with its new RTX 3000 series of graphics cards. The stage is set for a next generation of games that can take advantage of powerful CPUs, GPUs, and SSD storage across consoles and PCs. We’re now starting to get a good idea of what this next generation will cost and when it will arrive. Microsoft is launching its Xbox Series X... Continue reading…

I still don’t know what I think about Ronald Reagan sending players to do war crimes, but I’m certainly on board with the epic shipboarding combat I just saw in the first multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. While we don’t see the ship’s actual armaments in play (it’s not clear if you can control them), the rest of the map seems incredibly dynamic: zip line from ship to ship, commandeer gunboats, jump around in jet skis, take down a helicopter with an RPG. You can even engage underwater, or so the trailer suggests. And that’s just one of several maps Activision revealed in the trailer today. Here’s how it describes each of the first five maps: Armada Based on Operation Azorian, U.S. and Soviet forces arrive... Continue reading…

A sheriff’s deputy in Georgia had a run-in with the baddest of the bad last week when she returned to her cruiser to find a goat had taken over.The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said the unnamed deputy was serving civil papers at a home during the encounter. She typically leaves her car door open as she’s had to retreat from “vicious dogs” in the past. “Never once did she expect or even consider what was about to happen this day,” the agency wrote. Footage from the hairy situation showed the goat in the front seat and was busily eating the deputy’s paperwork. Then, after leaving the vehicle with a mouthful of delicious papers, the goat delivered a head-butt to the deputy’s knees, knocking her down before hoofing it from the scene of the crime. “Even though she was knocked to the ground she was not physically harmed in the incident,” the department wrote. “At the end of the day we all got a little laugh out of it and we hope you do as well!” See the full video below: Related...

Image: CBS On September 8th, CBS All Access is holding an all-day streaming event to commemorate the 54th anniversary of the premiere of the original Star Trek television show. I’ll admit I skimmed the email announcement until I found what I was looking for: yes, Patrick Stewart aka Captain Jean-Luc Picard will be part of the Star Trek panel discussions and will even reunite with Jonathan Frakes aka William Riker aka Number One aka Ensign Babyface. You can tell I am a) respectful of Star Trek because I didn’t go with a cheap “boldly go” or “engage!” pun in my lede, and b) I have a somewhat limited scope of interest in the Star Trek universe. But I think that’s OK! Unlike that other space-related franchise, you can fully enjoy one aspect of the Star... Continue reading…

Panspermia means “seeds everywhere,” and the concept represents the idea that life on Earth may have been seeded by biological lifeforms from outer space. This long-controversial idea recently received some experimental support from a new study out of Japan. These extremes of life were tested utilizing the International Space Station to examine how microbes might live in the extreme conditions of space. “The origin of life on Earth is the biggest mystery of human beings. Scientists can have totally different points of view on the matter. Some think that life is very rare and happened only once in the Universe,… This story continues at The Next Web

Go 1.15, the latest version of Google’s popular open source, statically typed, compiled language, was published as a production release on August 11. Among the new capabilities is an enhanced compiler that produces smaller binary sizes. The runtime and linker also have been improved.Typical binary sizes in Go 1.15 are reduced by about five percent compared to Go 1.14. This reduction is achieved by eliminating certain types of garbage collection metadata and more-aggressively eliminating unused type metadata. [ Also on InfoWorld: The best free programming courses during quarantine ] In another compiler improvement, the toolchain now mitigates Intel CPU erratum SKX102 on GOARCH=amd64 by aligning functions to 32-byte boundaries and padding jump instructions. Although this padding increases binary sizes, this increase is more than compensated for by the release’s binary size improvements. Additionally, Go 1.15 adds a -spectre flag to the compiler and the assembler to enable Spectre CPU vulnerability mitigations, though the Go team advises that these should almost never be needed.To read this article in full, please click here
