Oddworld: Soulstorm - 20 years in the making
03 Jun 2020
It's been 20 years since we last saw an original Oddworld title, but the cult classic could soon be seeing a return with Lorne Lanning's latest addition to the series, Oddworld: Soulstorm.
With the release of Intel's latest line of processors, we've of course seen the new motherboards on which to mount them - the Z490 series is here and there's quite a few options. From MSI to Asus and Gigabyte to ASRock, we've seen a wide array of sexy looking LGA1200 boards arrive on the market, with prices starting at as little as £129.98.
This is datacentre tech at its finest, and it's designed to power deep learning, a form of Artificial Intelligence designed to analyse and learn from vast amounts of data. Under all those gold-plated heatsinks lies 8 of NVIDIA's A100 GPUs, boasting the all new 7nm Ampere architecture we've all been waiting to see. These have all been paired up and geared to go using their signature NVLinks, twelve of them to be precise, alongside 6 of their NVSwitches and 8 Mellanox ConnectX-6 NICs, with Dual 64-core Rome EPYC 7742s from AMD, making for a whopping 128-cores and 256 threads. There's also 1TB of RAM, 15TB of NVMe storage, and the whole thing operates on PCIe 4.0.
