The Xbox Series X has 12 teraflops of GPU performance. Here's what that means. Microsoft confirmed earlier this week that the Xbox Series X has 12 teraflops of GPU performance, double that of the Xbox One X and eight times the amount of the standard Xbox One. You would've seen teraflops mentioned every time there's a new console announcement, but what is it, and why does it matter for gaming? Let's find out. What is a teraflop? A FLOP is an acronym for floating point operations per second. Floating point operations include irrational numbers and decimal points, and they're much more complex than fixed point operations, which are limited to binary integers. Because of the inherent difficulty of floating point operations, they're used to measure the compute power of a particular system.

Servers are down at the time of this writing, but the patch is live and Epic is already starting to show off some of what it's got in store for the coming weeks.  Season 6 is looking a whole lot like Halloween, with a Haunted Castle, Corn Fields and "corrupted" areas.

PS4 games will soon be available on iPhone and Android smartphones

I’m old enough to remember the first Sony Playstation, and truthfully, I freak out a bit when people tell me their first console was the PS2 or PS3.  Those people actually consider the PS1 “retro”, which means I’m just old. But those people also missed out on some truly incredible Sony games (for that day and age, anyway).  Those games included the PS1 versions Gran Turismo 2, Tekken 3, Metal Gear Solid, and more. Of course those gamers who can list the PS2 and PS3 and their first console are quickly aging too. After all, it’s entirely likely that most people in today’s generation will have their first video game experience on a smartphone. Perhaps that’s why it’s so cool to hear the news that Sony has created a gaming division specifically designed to bring its Playstation titles to iOS and Android.  Generation Smartphone will soon be able to experience the “retro” games many of us reading this grew up with. Here’s everything you need to know.
