So this AAA title is widely know as one of the best rally games to release this year but is it worth it?
What is Dirt 4 about?
This game is simple to understand.It’s a racing game based on the Rally side of the racing scenes.So if off-roading is your thing then you would like this game!So basically you are a new driver getting into rally racing and you start of racing for other teams and as you progress you can start your own team and build your own cars.
A Few Things I Nerd Out About!
The graphics on this game are insane! Each time I play I’m impressed again.The next thing is the extensive settings you can change to make the driving experience unique!The levels also get randomly generated which makes it so re-playable in the long run! Next is the fact that the things that you do effect the crew or teams you are working with, how cool is that??? Sucks if you are me and crash a lot but still a cool feature! The cars actually break and wear! I’ve gotten flats and worn clutches which just made the experience all the more real and cool!
Is It Any Fun?
Oh hell yes!This is one of the hardest and most entertaining racing games I’ve ever come across. The simulation setting makes you think about how you drive thus immersing you in the experience!The different game-modes like “rally” ,”rally-cross” etc are soooooo FUN!
Things You Might Want Before Getting The Game!
A controller or some type wheel I would highly recommend because keyboards and racing games don’t mix all too well! A decent GPU would also be beneficial so that you can push every last pixel of this amazing game! Patience is a big one because this is a hard game and takes some time to get used to.
Tips For First Time Players!
- Do the dirt academy
- Play around in free roam for a while
- Test cars and different tracks to get to know how each game works!
- Just screw around and enjoy some drifting or jumping the car as far as you can!
Ken Block the driver in the Gym Khana series helped to tune the simulation in the game to get it as close to what it feels like to him in real life as they could! Pretty cool if you don’t know who he is go to youtube and search his videos!
Buy this game it’s not that expensive and it will give you hours of fun and joy! The game is well designed and get’s a decent amount of updates and we should be seeing some DLC or something soon to keep the hardcore-gamers interested! SO GO AND PLAY IN THE DIRT 4!
DISCLAIMER: I am by no means qualified for you to be able to use any of what I said as facts it’s merely a rough perspective!
First Let’s Understand How Computers Process!
Think of a normal computer and the way it thinks as the wall of a castle.The top block formations are one oscillation and the bottom one are another.The top represents the quartz crystal in your CPU that is “on” and the bottom is when it’s “off”.
The “on” state represents a one to the PC and the “off” a zero.We don’t need to go into depth on this now just remember the shape of the castle wall!
Ignore the math and the words just remember the red lines!So “up” is on and “down” is off. Simple enough!
How Do Super-Computers Process?
They work on the same diagram(For explanation purposes I’m keeping it simple) but they do a type of processing that’s known as “Quantum-processing”
So to keep it simple let’s investigate the word. Processing we know that’s easy
Quantum has a variation of the word “quad” in it so that means 4, correct? So basically instead of getting and processing data on just on or off this process can do multiple and more complex problems because it has four points of which it can process.Just stay with me this is getting complex now but you are doing well so far!
So back to the red line and castle-wall.This process also uses the top and bottom of the diagram but it can also use the sides!Thus it uses on and off as well as “going on” and “going off”.
So Why Do They Need To Be So Cold?
As we all know by now CPUs are extremely small and because these ones work on a quantum level they need to be kept cool so the quantum effect they use to determine the signals like ” going on” and ” going off” don’t get effected by quantum heat effects that could disrupt the data and lead it to be useless.
So basically they use quantum effects to generate the computer signals and for those signals to be accurate the need to be chilled a hell of a lot so heat induced quantum signals don’t mess up the data.So it’s to keep interference out!
Why Do Normal PCs Not Need To Be So Cool?
In normal PCs cooler parts just mean a longer lifespan and better performance because you can overclock a fair bit more with decent cooling!The materials and the way the work are different and thus their requirements differ however PCs and the silicon they are made of have an optimal operating temperature thus they don’t need to be cooler than room temperature to function properly and they can go as high as 90 degrees Celsius before it starts to become a real big problem!
