This week’s top story:
Xbox One S – Microsoft has confirmed the new Xbox One S console will launch on August 2nd, 2016. Brett Phipps (@InverteBrett) talks us through the console’s new features, including the all-new, 40% smaller design, 4K UHD Blu-ray player, support for HDR gaming and an improved controller.
Also in the news this week:
Titan X reveal – NVIDIA has announced its flagship Titan X graphics card. 12 billion transistors, 11 TFLOPs, 3,584 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR5X RAM. This ultimate 4K and VR graphics card doesn’t come cheap though, with a $1,199 (£913) price tag. Ouch.
ARM sale – The pride of the British tech industry, ARM holdings, has been sold to Japanese firm SoftBank for £24 billion. Spun out from Acorn computers in 1990, the technology firm’s chips are used in 95% of all smartphones.
