At it’s core Outriders is a 3rd-person looter-shooter with story-driven RPG elements and co-op gameplay, the various classes (Outriders), each has a set of special abilities to complement the gunplay. It’s pretty violent but in an over-the-top way.

GAME ON!

Good Gaming CPU – AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X

UPDATE: The Radeon 6000 series is available now in the AMD Store

UPDATE: The Ryzen 5000 series is available now in the AMD Store

Wooohooo! AMD have just revealed a bunch of new AMD Ryzen Desktop CPU options and announced a global release date set for November 5th ūüôā

Via AMD: When you have the world‚Äôs most advanced processor architecture for gamers and content creators, the possibilities are endless. Whether you are playing the latest games, designing the next skyscraper, or crunching data, you need a powerful processor that can handle it all‚ÄĒand more. Hands down, the AMD Ryzen‚ĄĘ 5000 Series desktop processors set the bar for gamers and artists alike.

And they’re certainly looking great! During the event, AMDs’ technical marketing guru, Robert Hallock, took the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X through a series of games and performance benchmarks, at first showing the increase in performance VS his own Ryzen 9 3900XT, then moving into the same series of comparisons VS the Intel i9-10900K.

What was really cool about all this was that it was done on current gen motherboard platforms. This kind of boost in performance without a new motherboard is uncommon, and AMD is giving gamers, many of whom have already invested in an X570 or B550 series for their current 3rd gen CPU, the opportunity to do a same-socket CPU upgrade to their PC. We’ll know about exactly which CPU will work with which motherboard closer to release though.

For those gearing up, AMD Rewards have a Far Cry 6 game bonus offer set to begin on November 5th too, but this looks to only be for the Ryzen 7 5800X, Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X CPU options – we’ll update with more info as it comes in.

It all looks awesome, and at the end Lisa Su continued to wow the crowd by holding up a MASSIVE new AMD RX 6800 XT graphics card, which is said to be detailed in another AMD release event taking place on October 28th (29th here in NZ, see you at 5am again!)

GAME ON!
