La La Anthony on that ‘Power’ shocker: ‘I’m sure I will see tons of people celebrating’

Damn, Tasha!

Late in Sunday’s episode of , it looked as if Saxe (Shane Johnson) was about to take his last breath, until Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and Ghost (Omari Hardwick) gave him a second life. But poor LaKeisha (La La Anthony) wasn’t so lucky. Her relocation to the suburbs with Tommy and Cash (Denim Roberson) didn’t last long, as she was ready to run so she wouldn’t have to snitch on Tommy. But while Tommy and Cash were picking out an engagement ring for her, LaKeisha got a surprise visit from her old bestie Tasha (Naturi Naughton), who quickly realized what was going on. A fight for LaKeisha’s gun ensued, with Tasha getting a shot off during the struggle. Like Saxe, LaKeisha begged for her life, but Tasha declared, “I’m sorry,” before finishing her friend off.

After watching the shocking conclusion, EW chatted with Anthony about not being surprised that Tasha was her killer, how proud she is to go out in this fashion, and her hopes that some LaKeisha haters will soon realize that they miss her.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Already this season, I’ve done this same interview with Lela Loren, Jerry Ferrara, and now you. By the end, will there even be anyone left for me to talk to?
LA LA ANTHONY: I know, I know. I think it’s going to be such a shocking moment for this show. People think something might happen to her, but I don’t think they can even imagine that this is going to be what it is.

How did you find out about LaKeisha’s fate? What was that conversation like with creator Courtney Kemp?
It’s definitely not a conversation any of us want to have. I mean, that’s our family, we’ve been on the show for so long, but you understand the nature of the kind of show you’re on, and that things have to happen to keep the story interesting and moving forward. Courtney just talked me through the whole thing and explained why and told me how it would happen. She was extremely gracious in making me feel comfortable and making me understand from a writer’s perspective, like why it had to happen. My thing is, I could have just died off the show in a lackluster way and no one even cares or talks about it, but I think this will be a moment that will be talked about for a long time. So if …read more

Power Season 6 Episode 8 Review: Deal With The Devil

Is anyone going to make it out of this season alive?

The body count continued to rise on Power Season 6 Episode 8, as an ally turned enemy was eliminated ruthlessly.

Power has never shied away from the shock killings, but it’s starting to feel like an episode can’t go by without a prominent figure biting the dust.

The one thing most of the deceased characters have in common is they posed a threat to the St. Patrick and Egan families. Even when Ghost and Tommy are at odds, they are so interconnected that a threat to one is a threat to both.

Keisha has been on the Feds radar for a long while, and they finally got enough information about the night of Raymond’s murder to put her in a bind.

Saxe and Blanca had been working together all that time and never cross-referenced anything? Saxe’s decisions to run everything off the book not only cost him his job but also cost him a chance to solve some of these cases.

All it took was one conversation with Dre to set everything in motion.

Ghost: As long as you’re chipped up like a motherfucking dog, you stay the fuck away from me. And lose my number. I’m not playing with you, boy. We’re done.
Dre: This motherfucker.

Dre had heavy incentive to work with Blanca, seeing as how he was essentially all alone and he couldn’t do much of anything with the ankle monitor on.

Giving up Tariq was a way to save himself, and he jumped on the opportunity to do it as long as he got something back in return.

It all leads back to Keisha, who if you remember, lied about Tariq’s whereabouts the night Raymond was murdered.

She got put in an impossible situation with the authorities once again, leveraging a child against their parent to get information. When faced with jail and potentially never seeing your son again, the choice becomes pretty clear.

The second Keisha signed the cooperation agreement papers she was essentially signing her death certificate.

But things unfolded shockingly, to say the least.

It’s hard to tell where Tommy’s head is sometimes because he’s so unpredictable. But his feelings for Keisha were real, and it appears as if the situation with Holly has changed him into a different version of the man he once was.

He was angry and twitching and beside himself when Keisha …read more

Nvidia is bringing ray tracing to more classic PC titles

Earlier this year, Nvidia’s Lightspeed Studios revitalized a classic by giving id Software’s seminal first-person shooter Quake II an RTX-enabled makeover. This effectively granted a 20-year-old title the power to bring modern gaming PCs to their knees when played at high resolutions.

Now, the studio is planning to remaster a number of other beloved PC titles in the same fashion, according to a new job listing that was spotted by DSOGaming.

“We’re cherry-picking some of the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the ray tracing age, giving them state-of-the-art visuals while keeping the gameplay that made them great,” said Nvidia’s job description.

So far, the studio has not offered any hints on which games will be brought into the ray tracing era, though the job description teases “a title that you know and love” as its starting point.

What is ray tracing?

Described as one of the most significant advancements in graphics technology, ray tracing allows games to portray incredibly realistic lighting, shadows and reflections.

One drawback to ray tracing is that it requires an incredible amount of computing power in order to achieve its complex lighting calculations. You’ll also need a video card that supports ray tracing, such as Nvidia’s range of RTX graphics cards or AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600X.

To give you an idea of how the technology affects gaming performance, we’ve tested ray tracing in Control on PC with every Nvidia RTX Super card.
