When was the last good final fan seven it was this year fine but before that yeah only tears maybe this is finally the last one the ultimate final fantasy the final fantasy although apparently it’s also coming to pc so don’t get your anime hair in a bunch if you were worried you wouldn’t be able to get a ps5 because sony was reducing stock also they say they aren’t doing that now they’re sending on planes?
Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 is out and looks like the hype wasn’t entirely misplaced sure it’s not quite twice as powerful as the RTX 2080 across the board but when Nvidia said that they apparently meant specifically in quake 2 RTX and Minecraft RTX not necessarily in every game they didn’t even know people played other games so the confusion’s understandable however the RTX 3080 does fetch performance around 75 faster than 2080 on average which is frankly sick and it finally makes gaming in 4k at ultra settings and high refresh rates seem normal Jensen you’ve outdone yourself i love you we’ll have to see what AMD has to offer when they release their big Nabby graphics card they released a model of what we think is the RX 6900xt in Fortnite for some reason and more leaks have since given us a more detailed look.
Apple unveiled the “Apple watch series 6” for $399 featuring the normal improvements you’d expect to battery life usability but it can also now measure blood oxygen levels track it makes fun of your oxygen-deprived friends you can track it and make fun of all of your oxygen deposit friends also announced was the first apple watch sc for 279 that’s a pretty good deal featuring the chip from the series 5 and a few other downgrades Apple has made a deal with Singapore which will be paying its citizens up to 280 to exercise with an apple watch what apple also unveiled an 8th gen iPad with an a12 chip and an iPad Air with a new a14 chip suspected to be the same chip that will be found in the iPhone 12. the new iPad air uses the iPad pro’s design language and will even work with the pros magic keyboard dock so if you get an 11-inch iPad Pro at this point i don’t think we’ll ever understand each other no it’s silly like the MacBook to the MacBook pro yes fitness plus is joining apple slate of subscription services which will all be bundled under the mega subscription apple one program except there are three tiers of oneness which sounds confusing but also sounds like the mantra Tim apple says as he does yoga in front of his shrine to steve jobs so it actually makes a lot of sense.
