Apple Opens The macOS Sierra Public Beta

macOS Sierra was announced at this year’s WWDC, and by this point it’s now on its second beta release for developers. Today Apple is making a beta version of Sierra available to the general public as part of the Apple Beta Software program that technically began with the original Mac OS X 10.0 beta, but more recently began again with the later releases of OS X Mavericks. The macOS betas allow Apple to bring a wider range of users into the development and testing process which helps with discovering bugs and getting feedback about the implementation of new features.

The macOS Sierra beta will be available for anyone with a supported Mac to download from Apple’s beta software site later today. As always, Apple notes that the OS is still in development and so bugs and other such issues may be encountered with existing applications as well as updated applications and features that have been added to the OS. Users also also encouraged to provide feedback via the built in Feedback Assistant app. Updates will be provided through the Mac App Store as usual, and when the final version of macOS Sierra launches there will be a direct update to it as well.

Nvidia officially announces the new Geforce GTX 1060

Retail availability and reviews coming on July 19

Nvidia has now officially unveiled its third Pascal-based graphics card, the mid-range Geforce GTX 1060, which will have an MSRP of US $ 249.

Based on Nvidia’s 16nm GP106 Pascal GPU, the Geforce GTX 1060 will feature 1280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs as well as come with 6GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU works at up to 1.7GHz for the GPU Boost clock and Nvidia claims it can go as high as 2.0GHz with overclocking, which is an impressive number. 

It needs a single 6-pin PCIe power connector, which is not a big surprise considering its low 120W TDP. It also features three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b and one DVI display output. 

According to Nvidia, the new Geforce GTX 1060 is on average 15 percent faster in some top gaming titles and over 75 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive product, which puts a lot of pressure on AMD’s recently launched Radeon RX 480 graphics card. Nvidia also claims that you will get a “performance of the GTX 980”, and with a price starting at US $ 249, Nvidia might have a winner in the mid-range market. 

Unfortunately, we won’t see any official reviews before July 19th, when the official NDA is set to expire. The new GTX 1060 is also expected to be available worldwide on the same date. As it was the case with the earlier launched Geforce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, the Geforce GTX 1060 will also be available as a special limited Founders Edition (which is a fancy new name for reference edition), priced at US $ 299, a US $ 50 premium.

As noted, select review sites got the samples of the new GTX 1060 and should have plenty of time to bring reviews when NDA gets lifted on Tuesday, July 19th at 14:00 BST / 15:00 CET.

Battlefield 1’s alpha shows that 4K is within reach for high-end gaming PCs

EA recently ran a closed alpha test of Battlefield 1, and allowed certain outlets access to the game in its unfinished form. So far, the response has been positive, and if the team at DICE follows through for the final release, this could be a proper return to form for the series. And if you have access to a high-end gaming PC, this might just deliver the smooth 4K gaming experience you’ve been waiting for.

Battlefield 1 is taking EA’s storied franchise out of the modern world, and placing the game during the first world war. With both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Titanfall 2 doubling down on the sci-fi side of first-person shooters this year, a return to a historical setting makes a lot of sense for Battlefield. While there was strong skepticism surrounding the move to more primitive weaponry when it was first announced, it seems that DICE has been able to translate the Battlefield formula to WWI seamlessly.

During an EA event, the Digital Foundry team cranked up the settings to ultra on a machine with a Core i7-6700K and a GTX 1080, and captured the footage for analysis. When the resolution is jacked up the 5K, and then scaled down to 1440p, the alpha build was able to run at over 30fps. Even better, taking the resolution down to 4K was able to boost the frame rate to the low-to-mid 50s. With only a little bit of tinkering, it seems likely that people with top-of-the-line gaming gear will be able to enjoy a full 2160p experience without sacrificing a solid 60fps.

Interestingly, the uncompleted user interface implies that there will be optional DirectX 12 support in the game, but it’s unclear if it was actually functional during the alpha testing. Digital Foundry points to specific tweets from a Frostbite engine developer confirming that DX12 support is on its way, but there hasn’t been explicit confirmation for Battlefield 1 yet.

If you’re not running a high-end gaming PC, don’t worry. Even on the Low graphical preset, the game still looks very pretty. You’ll be making some sacrifices with ambient occlusion and shadows, but you’ll still get an aesthetically pleasing result. And if you’re happy with a 1080p output, we don’t anticipate any major issues running this game on more affordable gaming rigs. After all, the minimum specs for last year’s Star Wars Battlefront were pretty lenient.

As for console players, we expect the same 720p (Xbox One) and 900p (PS4) split that we saw with previous releases. DICE’s games have an imperfect record on consoles in the frame rate department, but if Battlefront is any indicator, a relatively stable 60fps is within their grasp.

It’s always nice to see a game perform well in a pre-release state, but it’s important to remember that the day-one release could be plagued with bugs and connectivity issues. As always, it’s wise to hold off on making your purchase until we get to see the game running in real-world scenarios.
