Rockstar have just revealed some new screens for L.A. Noire (The High Life of Los Angeles, 1947) and gives some more details about the game.
The post-war economic boom and full-fledged glory of Hollywood’s golden era brought a new, revitalized air of glamour and prestige to the world of Los Angeles in 1947. In L.A. Noire, this is exemplified by high-end mansions flanked by luxury vehicles, exclusive restaurants and top class shops... all catering to the idle class.
Detective Cole Phelps will soon learn firsthand though what they say about all that glitters. With power comes ruthlessness, with wealth and privilege come greed, with fame comes desperation - and below that high-gloss sheen lie the darkest of souls.
you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (48 minutes ago)
and it not having a Quadro gpu limits its professional 3D software use. (49 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: as i say, i'm a 3D guy too. (49 minutes ago)
the entry model is a bit short on ram, having the top gtx980m gpu is probably overkill for most use, especially if your working in the adobe package. (50 minutes ago)
mainly though, as a 2D and 3D artist, a workstation is just better. i take power and functionality over style personally. but it's worked for apple, maybe MS have a success on their hands (52 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: as for price. i wouldn't want the touch, it's not worth the added cost. and it's 3000 for entry level. realistically any self respecting artist would be getting the 4200 version. (54 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: the dial looks quite impractical to me. but then i like having the cintiq remote on my lap. i don't like the arm strain associated with on-screen buttons in that situation. (55 minutes ago)
