Microsoft's new Windows 10 Spectre patch disables Intel's 'fix'

  Microsoft's new Windows 10 Spectre patch disables Intel's 'fix' Intel recently admitted that its latest patch for "Spectre" was essentially worse than the bug it was supposed to fix, as it was causing computers to spontaneously reboot. Microsoft said that its internal testing shows the patch will stop the rebooting until Intel gets a new update together. Intel had already recommended that customers stop deploying the original patch, but that's obviously impossible for individual Windows users, as the fixes come bundled in Microsoft's own security updates.

It specifically deals with introducing new content and changes for the Battle Royale mode on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with Save the World mode set to receive some additions in the near future.

In terms of what's new in Battle Royale, update 2.4.2's biggest feature is a new weapon, the Crossbow. This was teased as a silent weapon recently in-game, and it's not only stealthy, but it also has another perk: It fires arrows, which are a new type of ammo that are unlimited in supply. Crossbows can be found as ground loot or in chests, with Rare and Epic versions also available. You can see a Valentine's-themed version of the weapon, as well as upcoming Valentine's skins.

Razer Phone now streams Netflix in all its HDR glory

  Razer Phone now streams Netflix in all its HDR glory Looks like Razer's latest update for its first smartphone should be worth installing. That's thanks to the handset's 5.7-inch Sharp IGZO display, which our senior editor Chris Velazco found gorgeous in his review. The Razer Phone's 120Hz refresh rate will also make for smooth playback, although not many games can take advantage of that yet.

Patch v3.4.1 is available to download now on PS 4 , Xbox One , and PC . Epic says it will roll out a similar update for the mobile version in the "near future," which will also include some platform-specific fixes. You can read the brief patch notes for the new update below or on the official Fortnite forums.

There are also changes to the current Limited-Time Mode, Shooting Test #1. It's been turned from a squad playlist into a solo activity, and some of its balance changes have been further altered. For instance, the shotgun now deals more damage when it headshots a player, while the Scoped Assault Rifle is now 100% accurate when you aim down the sights and doesn't have any damage falloff when firing at long range. However, be aware that Epic notes the mode currently has an issue where stat and challenge progress is not saved.

Save the World sees very little in the way of changes, with the new Valentine's Day event having to wait for the upcoming 2.5.0 patch. Epic also recently provided a brief preview of what to expect in the two patches that will follow that, including the launch of the Spring It On event. You can also check out the full patch notes for the 2.4.2 patch here.
