    D-RGB controller for non-RGB motherboard?

    for the fans, that seem to be true. However, the dumb controller that comes with the fans accepts a drgb signal, similar to what many rgb capable motherboards have. I was just trying to find a usb solution that offers that same header. I think I've found it in the coolermaster item I linked...

    D-RGB controller for non-RGB motherboard?

    The individual fans have their own proprietary interface. It's actually why I chose them, because they're designed to daisy chain. I'm just surprised to find that no one has made a standard DRGB usb adapter. *edit* I don't know how I didn't find this sooner, it looks like it might be just...

    D-RGB controller for non-RGB motherboard?

    I'm looking for a usb interfacing d-rgb controller so I can manage the addressable RGB's on some Inwin fans by software, on a system that doesn't have native rgb support. They have a fairly standard d-rgb 3 pin interface, so I don't think I need anything brand specific. All the controllers...

    Real-Time Ray Tracing Support Comes to GeForce GTX GPUs and Game Engines

    Also, nvidia also previously stated that their gtx series cards were capable of doing the same raytraced effects as shader processes, but that it was significantly slower. So this shouldn't be surprising for anyone that's been paying attention. If anything, this is a move to help spread...

    NVIDIA Ending Driver Support for 3D Vision, Mobile Kepler-Series GeForce GPUs

    Yeah, the batman games and bad company 2 were amazing in 3d vision surround. Truly the end of an era, but most modern displays that could support 3D vision weren't supported, so it was basically dead anyway :( (I would love to see it working on a 35" 1440p ultrawide)

    Valve Is Removing Steam Video Section; Retiring Non-Gaming Content

    Agreed. I feel like they only dabbled in it instead of making a concentrated effort. Had they provided a digital solution that provided quality equivalent to physical media, and provided access through a variety of platforms, it could have been a hit. But a streaming service with limited...

    ASUS Maximus XI Apex Motherboard Broken Down

    I don't know about the Apex, but I know the Gene was not distributed in the US, which could be why you're only seeing marketplace and 3rd party vendors with it. Which really upset me; I had plans for a Gene, but not if I can't get one with a warranty.

    Philips Momentum 43" 4K HDR gaming display

    Has anyone seen any updated testing to see if gsync compatible mode works with this monitor? My google searches haven't turned up anything.

    AMD Radeon VII 33-Game Benchmark: "It Makes the GTX 2080 Look Pretty Good"

    with the only plausible justification a consumer has for the price being 4k editing, why not market the card as part of their Radeon Pro series. Sell it as a content creator's card that can also game. Hell, they could probably raise the price. Just doesn't make any sense to me.

    DUAL Layer LCD Display Info Thread (Mono LCD as Backlight)

    Well, it depends on how the display works, and application. For example, if you were doing work that is affected by single pixel accuracy, your image quality could be compromised, assuming the mono lcd layer couldn't be disabled. If you had highly contrasting colors, say a black line on a...

    DUAL Layer LCD Display Info Thread (Mono LCD as Backlight)

    My knee-jerk reaction to this tech was "well, it obviously still won't be as good as self emitting tech like oled and micro led." But, as I thought about it, Consumer 4k content (streaming, 4k blu-ray, etc) is at best 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, which has an effective resolution of 1080p anyway...

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing RTX 2080 Ti Performance @ [H]

    Do you plan to re-visit these benchmarks after DLSS support is patched into the game? Jensen made some pretty bold claims at the keynote last night indicating that DLSS could negate the performance penalty of other RTX effects. If the numbers are accurate, it's a shame it hasn't made its way...

    Slightly Mad Studios Begins Development of a Gaming Console

    ROFL, VR at 60fps? No, nobody wants that. In fact, none of the first gen VR headsets from the 3 big players are that slow, lol. Rift and Vive are native 90hz, and the PSVR is 120hz. Smells like another phantom console to me.

    Future 38" IPS panel 98% DCI P3 144Hz HDR 600

    Currently, the HDR10 and HDR10+, as well as most other HDR standards, are designed around 10bit color. To my knowledge, only Dolby Vision supports 12 bit color, but most displays capable of Dolby Vision are still using 10bit panels. Additionally, there is currently no support for Dolby Vision...

    Der8auer Delids 9900k and Investigates TIM

    I have delidded the cpu in both my main computer and my htpc. Scraping off the stim does bother me a little, but I wonder if you could get around that with a soldering iron and some solder wick? If I wasn't saving up for some other toys, I'd be quite tempted to get my hands on one to find out.
