Memory giant SK Hynix is making another run at consumer SSDs

SK Hynix is very best referred to as a provider of each DRAM and NAND flash reminiscence chips, and you will even personal a package of RAM, graphics card, or garage product that makes use of its stuff. For probably the most section, alternatively, SK Hynix has been content material to stick at the provider facet of the equation. That is what makes its new Gold S31 SSD line a minimum of mildly attention-grabbing.
Those are 2.Five-inch SATA fashions, and so they arrive at a time when the marketplace is in large part transferring against sleeker and quicker M.2 NVMe drives. SK Hynix has plans of freeing the ones as neatly, simply no longer but.

What is additionally relatively distinctive concerning the new Gold S31 drives is that they are fully constructed in-house.
“All key parts in Gold S31, from NAND flash and integrated controller to DRAM and firmware, had been designed and produced by means of SK Hynix. The in-house parts are constructed for tough efficiency and reliability,” SK Hynix says.
SK Hynix isn’t the one producer to try this—so do Intel, Samsung, and Toshiba, relying at the type. Alternatively, the majority of SSD producers can not make the similar declare.

In the interim, SK Hynix is preserving sure main points beneath lock and key, reminiscent of the precise form of NAND flash reminiscence and the precise controller. All we all know are the capacities and velocity rankings—1TB, 500GB, and 250GB, every of which is rated to ship as much as 560MB/s of sequential learn efficiency and as much as 525MB/s of sequential write efficiency.
SK Hynix is taking a guarded way to its re-entry into the shopper SSD marketplace. The drives are handiest to be had on Amazon in america for now, even though the corporate says it’s going to increase availability to different North American and Ecu markets subsequent yr.
This is how pricing breaks down:

At the present, every of the 3 record has a Five p.c coupon to be had, which when clicked will knock a couple of dollars off.
Pricing is ok, idea no longer impressive—sooner than coupon, you are looking at between round $zero.12 to $zero.20 in step with gigabyte. There are less expensive choices at each and every capability. The most important’s MX500, as an example, runs $107.99 for 1TB. Amongst SATA choices, we imagine that to be the most productive SSD for gaming. It is difficult to in point of fact evaluate, even though, till we all know what sort of NAND flash reminiscence chips SK Hynix is the use of.

Gfinity Esports Australia Is Shutting Down

Gfinity's Australian operation is shutting down at the end of this year, with its parent company HT&E citing a lack of "sustainable, positive earnings" from the esports league. The business, according to Mumbrella, posted a $5.3 million loss as of June 30 this year.

The esports business will close after the conclusion of the Supercars Eseries, which is scheduled to end on November 24. "While the business has achieved some significant and world-leading results, the economics of esports in the Australian market are yet to deliver sustainable, positive earnings," HT&E chairman Hamish McLennan said in a media statement.

Ciaran Davis, Chief Executive of HT&E, echoed said the holding company would focus on the radio industry going forward.
"Our absolute focus is on our core radio business that remains highly cash generative with exceptional margins," Davis said.
"It is critical our investments deliver value for shareholders and with esports there is no certainty on when a positive contribution might be achieved."

Gfinity Esports Australia first launched in 2017 and was responsible for building Australia's first custom esports arena in partnership with Hoyts.

Loot Crate, The Curated Pop Culture Subscription Service, Has Filed For Bankruptcy

Loot Crate, the subscription service that sends its subscribers curated boxes every month full of items relating to various pop culture franchises, has filed for bankruptcy and let go much of its work force. Although the website and store is still up, Loot Box is now on the market for acquisition. It is expected to finalise a sale within the next 45 days.

As Gizmodo reports, last month the company let go 150 of its warehouse workers, and dozens of other workers have been let go this week. Loot Crate has received a commitment from Money Chest LLC for more funding of up to $10 million, which will allow the company to keep operating for now. According to the press release the company put out about their situation, "employees and customers should not notice any difference in operations as a result of the filing or during the sale process except for the better."

However, some customers have reported not receiving new boxes from Loot Crate for months - responses to the company's tweet about their bankruptcy point towards customers who are as many as seven boxes behind on their subscriptions. Former senior community manager Shawnee Hale has tweeted out that those let go did not receive severance pay, either.

Whether Loot Crate will be able to continue operating into the future, and how it will fulfill its existing obligations to subscribers, remains unclear. According to the LA Times, they currently owe about $20 million worth of unshipped crates.

Diablo 3's next season will add buffs for players from level 1
Season 18 is coming to Diablo 3 on August 23, and while some of the previous seasons have been more about the endgame, this one will add buffs players have access to right from the beginning.

The Power of the Triune will be adding random summon circles to battlefields that can provide one of three different buffs. The Triune of Love adds a 100% damage bonus, the Triune of Determination gives a 50% discount on resource costs, and the Triune of Determination increases the rate skills come off cooldown. Of course, you have to be standing in the circle to receive these benefits.

As with Season 17, older seasonal rewards are being made available again to players who missed them the first time—rewards from Season 6 will be earnable alongside the new ones. For full details of those, and the latest patch notes, check out Blizzard's blog post. Like the previous seasons, it'll be live for roughly three months.

Don't Starve Together wants you to set sail for the spooky Lunar Island

It feels like every time we check back on Don't Starve Together, Klei has just unleashed some wild new update. The studio promised an "extensive" slate of content for the co-op survival game throughout 2019, and it continues to deliver on that front. This week, at least on PC to start, it's time for Turn of Tides – a free update in which a chunk of the moon lands planetside and forms a "Lunar Island."

If absolutely nothing else, I'm here for these animated trailers. They never disappoint. Don't Starve always had such a compelling mythos, and it's only grown stronger with Don't Starve Together.

Turn of Tides has boat-building and sailing mechanics – how else can are you going to reach (and promptly die on) the island? – and three biomes "with valuable new resources, craftables, and fearsome enemies." Klei also swapped out the Sanity meter for a new Enlightenment concept that ties into the storyline. Speaking of which, did I forget to mention that this ongoing expansion is called Return of Themand it's about an ancient being in the sky we can't fully comprehend? Whoops. Don't make eye contact!

Don't Starve Together console players will have to wait for the update. Simply put, Klei needs more time. "We expect this to take an additional 3-4 weeks (hopefully less), and we will update you with the expected date as soon as we submit to cert and have a better handle on what the date will be."

The developers also indicated that they're hoping to improve the character skin situation on PS4 and Xbox One down the road. Under the current approach, "each time we put new skins on console we have to go through the entire certification process as well as the process for setting up DLC, which in the past has proven to be more time consuming than we'd hoped. However, if we instead put everything up as one package and allow them to be paid for with virtual currency, we're no longer so limited."

Sea of Thieves’ Dark Relics update finally sticks harpoon guns on rowboats

Sea of Thieves’ August replace, Darkish Relics, introduces new voyages so that you can whole and chests so that you can seek out, however put out of your mind all of that, as a result of an important new addition is harpoon weapons on rowboats.

Harpoon weapons are, subsequent to possibly fishing, the most productive factor Uncommon has added to its more and more entertaining piratical romp. They most often omit and there is no animation for after they hook one thing, like every other pirate, so it seems a bit of early get admission to. I adore it. Right through my closing voyage, I attempted to hook a chum however as a substitute hit the explosive barrel he was once rowing again to our send. He did not make it.

I am fascinated by what this implies for boarding ships. Launching out of a cannon is dangerous and swimming is just too sluggish. Rowboats most often are, too, however with a harpoon to latch onto their quarry? That are supposed to alternate issues. The logical conclusion is a private harpoon gun.

The Darkish Relics voyages don’t seem to be floating my boat moderately as a lot. Skeletons have stolen some relics, so you want to seek them down throughout 3 voyages and get them again. Like closing month’s Black Powder Stash voyages, they feels like very slight twists on common missions. Additionally, skeleton bounties are nonetheless a bit of garbage, so I am not longing for extra.

Ritual skulls and a brand new roughly chest have additionally been flung into the combo. The Order of Souls pays you neatly for any of those particular skulls that skeletons drop, whilst the brand new chests will likely be simply visual when close to, in all probability inspiring a combat.

I am hungry for doubloons, so I will almost certainly finally end up doing the voyages anyway, particularly since there are new cosmetics to be had. The frilly Tall Stories campaigns have spoiled me a bit of, on the other hand, so I simply can’t get fascinated by the fundamental quests now. Harpooning, even though, continues to be a thrill.

The Darkish Relics replace is are living now.
