The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.

Just because the RTX 30 series cards are out doesn’t mean one of the the fastest RTX 20 series GPUs has lost its way. The RTX 2080 SUPER might be a generation old, but it’s still a very competent video card. It compares roughly to the RTX 3060 Ti and supports both DLSS and ray tracing. At this Memorial Day Sale price of $1299.99, it will be difficult to find an RTX 30 series gaming PC that can compete in the same price range. The GPU is matched with a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and a generous 1000W power supply.

Alienware AW3423DW 34″ 3440×1400 Curved 0.1ms 175Hz G-SYNC Ultimate QD-OLED Gaming Monitor

After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. The estimated delivery date has already been extended all the way out to July.

QD-OLED technology was a big hit at this year’s CES and Samsung earned the “Best of Innovation 2022” award for it. The QD OLED panel uses quantum dot technology to more efficiently produce higher peak brightness levels compared to traditional OLED TVs without losing the color accuracy and range and wide viewing angles that OLEDs are known for. Although Samsung is the one that publicized the new technology, it is Alienware that will be deputing it first to the consumer market with this AW3423DW monitor.

New 2021/2022 Alienware Aurora R13 Gaming PC

Unceremoniously dubbed the “R13”, Dell’s new flagship gaming PC sports a number of aesthetic, quality of life, and performance improvements over its predecessors. In terms of future proofing, the Alienware Aurora R13 is the first Alienware PC to come equipped with the newest 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors. That’s paired with a Z690 based motherboard that accepts DDR5 RAM. This proves that DDR5 RAM actually exists in the wild. Your video card options are great as well; pick your choice of RTX 30 series video card, from the RTX 3060 Ti all the way to the RTX 3090, at your expense of course.

New 2021/2022 Dell XPS Gaming PC

Until recently, Dell’s only PC option that offered an Intel Alder Lake CPU, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30 series video cards was in the form of the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC listed above. At a cost of about $2900 for an Intel Core i7 RTX 3080 combo, it’s out of reach for many people. Now, Dell has extended similar buildout options to its new 2021-2022 Dell XPS gaming PC. Compared to the previous model, the new Dell XPS chassis is larger in volume (27L vs 19L) and provides more clearance for the CPU and GPU area for much better airflow. That’s important because the new Alder Lake processors can run hot under intense loads. Like the Alienware Aurora R13, the new Dell XPS PC features a Z690 motherboard that supports the newest 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30 series video cards.

Alienware X15 and X17 Gaming Laptops

Dell has launched two new Alienware laptops for 2021, the 15″ X15 and the 17″ X17. They succeed the m15 and m17 as Alienware’s flagship gaming laptops. They also happen to be the thinnest Alienware laptops ever despite the fact that they’re equipped with the next generation RTX 30 series video cards. In fact, they are thinner than the “ultra-thin” Razer Blade 15″ laptop. The X15 model measures in at only 0.63″ thin and 5.2 pounds and the X17 model is 0.84″ thin and 7.05 pounds. The laptops also feature the newest Intel 11th gen H-series processors and a powerful quadruple fan active cooling system that keeps all the components nice and cool.

How long do Valorant’s Acts last? Answered

Acts in Valorant are akin to seasons in games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, or Destiny 2. Every Act introduces new content to the game, such as agents or maps, alongside an Act-exclusive battle pass featuring 55 tiers of cosmetics to unlock. However, you’ll need to ensure you finish your battle pass before an Act ends if you want to reap all of its rewards. But how long do Acts last?

How long are Valorant’s Acts?

Valorant’s Acts tend to last around two months each, give or take a few weeks. Looking at Valorant’s past Acts, most have typically ended roughly two months after launch, with some clocking in at just under two months. Additionally, some Acts — such as Ignition Act 3 — have lasted for about three months, so there’s always a possibility that an Act might be a bit longer than expected.

Like most other popular online games, you will not be able to redeem battle pass rewards for a particular Act after the Act ends. If you’re considering purchasing Valorant’s battle pass, it’s always worth checking how long an Act has been out to evaluate if you’ll have enough time to unlock the current Act’s rewards before it comes to an end. However, other content introduced in an Act, like agents and maps, will carry over into the next Act.

You’ll work through battle pass tiers by leveling up. If you’re looking to level up quickly, we recommend you pay close attention to your daily and weekly missions, which both reward you with a good deal of XP.

Some of the cosmetics you’ll unlock from an Act’s battle pass can be quite stylish. If you’re looking to flaunt your fashion on the battlefield, check out our coverage on the best Operator and Spectre skins.

Man gets early morning shock as car crashes into his house

GEORGE TOWN: A homeowner in Penang got a shock on Saturday (June 25) morning when a car rammed into his home at about 7am.

“I heard a bang outside and rushed out. I saw that a car had crashed into the front of my house and the empty house next door that had been used as a welding workshop,” said 52-year-old Hasbullah Mohd Khalid.

News portal Berita Harian Online reported that Hasbullah was boiling water while his three children were in another room when the incident happened.

“I was confused for a moment when I saw the damage to the front of the house as it was just a few meters from the place where I was boiling water. It was only separated by a wooden wall,” he said to the portal.

Hasbullah said the damage to his house was estimated at RM50,000.

He did not have time to meet the man who was driving the vehicle because he was taken away by his friend.

It is understood that the case has been handed over to the police for further action.

Norway terror alert raised after deadly mass shooting

OSLO: The Norwegian security service PST has raised its terror alert to the highest level after a mass shooting left two people dead and many wounded during Pride week in Oslo.

Acting PST chief Roger Berg called the shootings an “extreme Islamist terror act.”

He said the gunman, who was arrested shortly after the shootings, had a “long history of violence and threats.”

Early on Saturday (June 25), the gunman opened fire in Oslo’s night-life district, killing two people and leaving 10 seriously wounded in what police are investigating as a possible terrorist attack during the Norwegian capital’s annual Pride festival.

Investigators said the suspect, identified as a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen originally from Iran, was arrested after opening fire at three locations in downtown Oslo.

While the motive was unclear, organizers of Oslo Pride cancelled a parade that was set for Saturday as the highlight of a weeklong festival. One of the shootings happened outside the London Pub, a bar popular with the city’s LGBTQ community, just hours before the parade was set to begin.

Police attorney Christian Hatlo said the suspect was being held on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and terrorism, based on the number of people targeted at multiple locations.

“Our overall assessment is that there are grounds to believe that he wanted to cause grave fear in the population,” Hatlo said.

Hatlo said the suspect’s mental health was also being investigated.

“We need to go through his medical history, if he has any. It’s not something that we’re aware of now,” he said.

The shootings happened around 1am local time, sending panicked revellers fleeing into the streets or trying to hide from the gunman.

Olav Roenneberg, a journalist from Norwegian public broadcaster NRK, said he witnessed the shooting.

“I saw a man arrive at the site with a bag. He picked up a weapon and started shooting,” Roenneberg told NRK.

“First I thought it was an air gun. Then the glass of the bar next door was shattered and I understood I had to run for cover.”

Another witness, Marcus Nybakken, 46, said he was alerted to the incident by a commotion in the area.

“When I walked into Cesar’s bar there were a lot of people starting to run and there was a lot of screaming. I thought it was a fight out there, so I pulled out. But then I heard that it was a shooting and that there was someone shooting with a submachine gun,” Nybakken told Norwegian broadcaster TV2.

Police inspector Tore Soldal said two of the shooting victims died and 10 people were being treated for serious injuries, but none of them was believed to be life-threatening.

Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said in a Facebook post that “the shooting outside London Pub in Oslo tonight was a cruel and deeply shocking attack on innocent people.”

He said that while the motive was unclear, the shooting had caused fear and grief in the LGBTQ community.

“We all stand by you,” Gahr Stoere wrote.

King Harald V also offered condolences and said he and Norway’s royal family were “horrified by the night’s shooting tragedy.”

“We sympathize with all relatives and affected and send warm thoughts to all who are now scared, restless and in grief,” the Norwegian monarch said in a statement.

“We must stand together to defend our values: freedom, diversity and respect for each other. We must continue to stand up for all people to feel safe.”

Christian Bredeli, who was at the bar, told Norwegian newspaper VG that he hid on the fourth floor with a group of about 10 people until he was told it was safe to come out.

“Many were fearing for their lives,” he said.

“On our way out we saw several injured people, so we understood that something serious had happened.”

Norwegian broadcaster TV2 showed footage of people running down Oslo streets in panic as shots rang out in the background.

Investigators said the suspect was known to police, as well as to Norway’s security police, but not for any major violent crimes. His criminal record included a narcotics offence and a weapons offense for carrying a knife, Hatlo said.

Hatlo said police seized two weapons after the attack: a handgun and an automatic weapon, both of which he described as “not modern” without giving details.

He said the suspect had not made any statement to the police and was in contact with a defence lawyer.

Hatlo said it was too early to say whether the gunman specifically targeted members of the LGBTQ community.

“We have to look closer at that, we don’t know yet,” he said.

Still, police advised organizers of the Pride festival to cancel the parade Saturday.

“Oslo Pride therefore urges everyone who planned to participate or watch the parade to not show up. All events in connection with Oslo Prides are cancelled,” organizers said on the official Facebook page of the event.

Inge Alexander Gjestvang, leader of FRI, the Norwegian organisation for sexual and gender diversity, said the shooting has shaken the Nordic country’s gay community.

“It’s tough for the queer movement to experience this,” he was quoted by TV2 as saying.

“We encourage everyone to stand together, take care of each other. We’ll be back later, proud, visible but right now it’s not the time for that.”

Norway has a relatively low crime rate but has experienced violent attacks by right-wing extremists, including one of the worst mass shootings in Europe in 2011, when a gunman killed 69 people on the island of Utoya after setting off a bomb in Oslo that left eight dead.

In 2019, another right-wing extremist killed his stepsister and then opened fire in a mosque but was overpowered before anyone there was injured. – AP
