Will it Run? | Assassin’s Creed: Unity

Will it Run? | Assassin’s Creed: Unity

As part of our ongoing work with PurePC.pl to keep you informed about how well you can expect your rig to run various high-end games, here’s another in the Will it Run? series that aims to provide you with a clear answer to whether or not your PC can cope with Assassins’s Creed:Unity. In this case, however, the answer will most likely not be one you’ll like. AC: Unity was released with a multitude of functional bugs, ranging from busted controls and broken texture loading to the main protagonist clipping though the streets and into an abyss. But perhaps the most flawed aspect of the game is its performance [...]

Will it Run? | Dragon Age: Inquisition

Will it Run? | Dragon Age: Inquisition

We’re a friendly bunch at XP4T, and there’s nothing we like better than making new friends (then headshotting them in ARMA or UT when they’re not looking). Our newest friends are top Polish hardware news and review site PurePC , with whom we’ve entered an exciting partnership. (If you’re wondering how the hell an English-language gaming site works with a Polish-language site, just know that a few of us can actually speak that sinister language). As a result, we’ll be sharing PurePC’s findings on how the latest PC games perform on a wide range of GPUs (including some of the latest). We’re doing all of this with one [...]

LEPA BOL.Quiet Tri-Speed fan

LEPA BOL.Quiet Tri-Speed fan

Unarguably, I did have my reservations reaching for the LEPA BOL.Quiet Tri-Speed fan to replace a much worn Yate Loon D12SL-12 on my CPU cooler, but after using it for a few days I can honestly say it was money well spent. The LEPA brand might seem like a new player in the air cooling, PC case and PSU market, but make no mistake – it’s owned by Enermax and was established in 2010 as part of the company’s general overhaul process. Essentially, LEPA’s product range is very similar to what the old brand offers, but is just a bit different. The fan [...]

Creative Tactic3D Sigma headset reviewed

Creative Tactic3D Sigma headset reviewed

  Every video game enthusiast will tell you that in order to attain complete game immersion, having a decent headset is essential.  Take FPSs for instance: knowing exactly where a particular sound is coming from, and it’s exact distance often means the difference between either blowing somebody’s brains out, or having your own splattered all over a concrete wall.  In the same vein, having a reliable, adjustable, integrated microphone in order to communicate with your team is a must these days. The above reasons are only two of many, behind my decision to finally get a headset. I was able to compare [...]
