Nvidia GeForce Now just got a bunch of EA games

Image Description

GeForce Now only previously had one EA game available to stream – the popular battle royale Apex Legends – but a cluster of new games, or to be precise four of them, have just arrived on Nvidia’s service.

Those games are Dragon Age: Inquisition, Battlefield 1 Revolution, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, and Unravel Two (a co-op platformer).

There were other additions to GeForce Now revealed this week as well as those EA titles, and the full list runs as follows:

  • Away: The Survival Series (new game launch on Steam)
  • Lemnis Gate (new game launch on Steam)
  • The Eternal Cylinder (new game launch on Epic Games Store)
  • Hot Wheels Unleashed (new game launch on Steam and Epic Games Store)
  • Industria (new game launch on Steam and Epic Games Store)
  • The Last Friend (new game launch on Steam and Epic Games Store)
  • Rogue Lords (new game launch on Steam and Epic Games Store)
  • Europa Universalis IV (free on Epic Games Store, September 30)
  • Battlefield 1 Revolution (Steam and Origin)
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition (Steam and Origin)
  • Mirror’s Edge Catalyst (Steam and Origin)
  • Unravel Two (Steam and Origin)
  • Rustler (Steam)
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist (Ubisoft Connect)

Analysis: A good sign for the future

While the EA titles introduced here might be pretty old – Dragon Age is a big franchise name, of course, but Inquisition was released way back in 2014 – the fact that a number of EA games are now present on GeForce Now is a good sign.

It bodes well for further products to come across from the major publisher in the future, hopefully before too long. (And yes, as you might guess, there are already gamers clamoring for FIFA 22 to come to the streaming service – but the next titles to arrive will doubtless be lower-key affairs, naturally).

In July 2021, Nvidia announced that GeForce Now supports over 1,000 games, so it’s clearly making some good strides in terms of beefing up its library, following the desertion of some big-name publishers right after the launch of the service. In other words, things are being turned around, and in our dabbling with GeForce Now at TechRadar, we’ve had a mostly positive experience, too.

  • Intel CPUs are clawing back sales as AMD seemingly stalls

    Intel is making serious headway in the desktop CPU market, going by some fresh evidence from two separate sources.

    As VideoCardz highlights, these are stats pertaining to buyers of standalone desktop CPUs in Japan, and also the breakdown of processor share obtained from PassMark (the popular benchmarking software).

    Let’s start with PassMark, which compiles stats based on the systems using its benchmarking tools, and in the CPU category, has found that in recent times, Intel has been surging upwards.

    To be precise, in Q3 and Q4 of last year, Intel’s share of CPUs has increased from around 50% to almost 60%, a pretty big swing in Team Blue’s favor for the second half of 2021, as PassMark pointed out on Twitter.

    Note that those stats are for all desktop PCs, of course, whereas the second batch of figures is for DIY sales only (standalone CPUs, not prebuilt machines), and comes from Japan.

    Going by the analysis of the Japanese market as carried out by BCNR, Intel desktop processor sales have been on the rise since mid-2021 (again), with sales of Core i5 CPUs booming in particular, and also Core i7 models up fairly strongly, with a marked decline in AMD’s sales powerhouse which is Ryzen 5 chips.

    Earlier in 2020, Ryzen 5 sales in Japan crested over 40% market share (briefly), but have since sunk to just 12.6% of the market in January 2022, with Core i5 processors from Intel surging to 35.7% in the same month (and Core i7 hitting 25%).


    Analysis: Is AMD set to stagnate further near-term, losing more share to Intel?

    Both these sets of figures show that from mid-2021 – or actually, slightly earlier than that in Japan – Intel has witnessed a marked increase in CPU market share. Of course, even two separate sources are hardly representative of the whole desktop processor market (remember, the Japan stats apply to standalone or DIY sales only), but we have seen Intel making progress elsewhere.

    For example, German retailer MindFactory showed Intel hitting a 30% CPU share in November 2021, the highest level seen all year (previously, Team Blue had only managed to secure a 25% share at best for CPU sales from this retail outlet). Alder Lake certainly made a difference in those figures, and is no doubt at least part of the reason for the gains seen in the two reports we talked about above – the new hybrid tech-toting processors have been well-received on the whole.

    AMD may also have been slipping due to its own issues with supply and production of processors, and the lack of any fresh Ryzen blood for a good long time now. All we’ve had is a reveal of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D as a stopgap chip, and rumor has it that even this single processor could be very thin on the ground when it launches (we’re not even sure when that’ll be, either).

    The danger for AMD is that it just stagnates and Intel carves even further into its desktop CPU territory. And to top all this off, there’s the threat of Intel getting next-gen Raptor Lake chips out in good time later this year – maybe in September, and potentially before AMD’s Zen 4 CPUs arrive, which would be even more damaging for Team Red’s sales. No wonder some other speculation holds that AMD is really trying to ramp up the launch schedule for Zen 4.

  • This Microsoft Edge update is a dream for all you clumsy typists

    Spelling errors may soon be a thing of the past for Microsoft Edge users thanks to a new update coming to the software.

    The company has revealed it is working on bringing a new "text predictions" feature to its browser that uses Microsoft's own in-house AI and ML technology to offer word suggestions to users.

    This feature will initially be available to Windows 10 and Windows 11 users in the Edge Canary Channel, but should be coming to a wider audience soon.

    Microsoft Edge text predictions

    The change will see Microsoft Edge utilizing a similar process seen in the company's Outlook platform and Microsoft Editor service.

    Predictions or suggestions will be displayed in a greyed-out suggestion box shown when the user is typing in Microsoft Edge. Users can accept a text prediction suggestion by clicking Tab or pressing the right arrow key - and to ignore a suggestion, just continue typing and the preview will disappear.

    Users can try out the new addition now, but will need to be members of the Edge Canary Channel to do so. There's no news on a wider release date just yet, but given Microsoft's past track record, the tool should come to the market soon.

    It's the latest in a series of recent upgrades for Microsoft Edge as the company looks to keep users engaged and away from competitors such as Google Chrome.

    This includes the launch of a new "Games" panel in the browser, along with a new twist on the RSS-style Followable Web feature that lets users follow their favorite YouTube creators with the press of a button.

    Although Chrome only offers text suggestions in the URL search bar, several other Google tools provide predictive text tools for users.

    Autocorrect came to Google Docs back in February 2020, with the company's Smart Compose tool looking to help users stamp out spelling or grammar mistakes following its launch on Gmail all the way back in 2018.

    Smart Compose automatically suggests the next few words of a sentence based on what you've already typed, learning from your writing habits to become more accurate over time.
