Xbox Cloud Gaming is now fully powered by faster Xbox Series X hardware

Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming service (xCloud) is now fully powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware. Microsoft tells The Verge it recently completed the upgrade, which improves both framerates and game load times for players streaming Xbox games over the web.

While Microsoft has moved Xbox Cloud Gaming to 1080p and 60fps streams in recent months, the company has yet to unlock the full potential of custom Xbox Series X hardware to deliver 4K streams. It’s not clear when this will be available, but Microsoft has been moving towards delivering Xbox Cloud Gaming beyond just mobile devices and browsers.

Narrow Impact for Microsoft’s (MSFT) New OS and Hardware

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) was once synonymous with its Windows operating system. Revenues from the operating system (OS) determined the movements of its stock price, and consumer reaction to its new releases bordered on a frenzy. 

It is a measure of changing times, then, that the latest release of Microsoft’s operating system and reviews of its new Surface hardware devices have only had a marginal impact on its share price. Between Oct. 5, when Windows 11 was released, and Oct. 8, the company’s stock price inched up by roughly 2.7%. 

While they are still important contributors to Microsoft’s top line, Windows

How to Bypass Windows 11’s TPM Requirement and Upgrade from Windows 10

Microsoft has some strict hardware requirements that your PC must meet to install Windows 11, including TPM 2.0 support. This means that not only older computers, but virtual machines will refuse to upgrade from Windows 10, giving you a message that “this PC doesn’t currently meet Windows 11 system requirements.” 

In fact, if you already have installed Windows 11 in a virtual machine, you may not be able to update to the latest build because Windows Update will tell you that your system doesn’t meet requirements. But even if your host computer supports TPM, your VM software may not.

Fortunately,

Nintendo Switch OLED – The Screen’s The Star

Image: Nintendo Life

Nintendo has a long and proud history of relentlessly iterating and upgrading its portable systems on a regular basis, but, outside of the smaller, cheaper Switch Lite, the original model has been the company’s workhorse for the past four-and-a-bit years, contributing massively to the 89 million Switch units sold so far.

Sure, an updated version with superior battery life arrived in 2019, but on the whole, the Japanese giant has stuck with the existing 2017 design, which is an uncharacteristically loyal approach (the Game Boy Advance was updated after less than two years on sale, while the

Intel Launches Rocket Lake Xeon E-2300 Chips

Intel announced the launch of ten Rocket Lake-based CPUs for the server market, marking the first update to its Xeon 2000 series since the release of the previous-gen Coffee Lake-E Xeon E-2200 family in Q2 2019. The CPUs are part of the Intel Xeon E-2300 series, which make up the company’s entry-level, server-bound offerings that aim for stability more than actual benchmark dominance (Intel has validated compatibility with Windows Server 2022 already). The lineup spans from a $182 quad-core Xeon E-2314 up to a $539 eight-core E-2388G, all powered by Intel’s latest Cypress Cove architecture etched onto the 14nm process.

Intel’s Gemini Lake Powers Pocket-Friendly Pantera Pico PC

You’ve probably never wondered if you could fit an x86 PC in your jacket pocket, but XDO Tech clearly has, and is making that crazy dream a reality, with the help of Kickstarter. While tiny PCs like the Intel Compute Stick have been around for several years, the XDO Tech Pantera Pico PC is one of the smallest Gemini Lake implementations we’ve seen yet.

Intel’s Gemini Lake platform is designed around a low-power microarchitecture called Goldmont Plus. Being a 14nm design, it is said to deliver a modest performance for everyday tasks like web browsing and video streaming, while offering
