    AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution

    Is Godfall using RT global illumination? If so, could be partially due to the spinning cube's shiny bezel reflecting light rays around the room in the native shot, where the black opaque surface of the cube is facing the camera in the Ultra Quality FSR shot? The Quality FSR shot has the cube's...

    Thanks! What's neat is that FSR did a good job of bringing back detail in the background, but presented a softer overall foreground. Check out this comparison between the pillar detail on the left (foreground) versus the statue (background). Native FSR Ultra Quality Tip: Open the above in...

    The native and FSR ultra look virtually identical, but it appears the images were scaled down to 2000x838, so we can't really make an accurate 1-to-1 comparison with these. Can you reupload those at 3440x1440?

    AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution

    Having a friend play around with it Anno 1800 and noticed some unusual screen space reflection artifacts. It seems where ever SSR is in the render stack doesn't play well with having its lower internal resolution upscaled via FSR sorcery. Basically water is inaccurately reflecting the terrain...

    More DLSS...

    YouTube is still processing the video, so this is about as clear as mud at the moment, but should sharpen up when the 1440P render is complete. Edit: Render is done but YouTube compression artifacts aren't doing this comparison any favors... Here's a still frame comparison while that's...

    More DLSS...

    It basically redownloaded the entire game it seems (over 60GB). The nvngx_dlss.dll from R6S worked great. At the "quality" DLSS preset, there were no visible ghosting/trailing that I typically saw in prior DLSS games. Some magical unicorn dust they worked into it this time. Restarted the game...

    More DLSS...

    I just bought Exodus EE yesterday, looks like you have to manually enable "Enhanced Edition" from the beta options. I'll try it again in a moment.

    More DLSS...

    IDK how they did it, but when I apply the R6S's nvngx_dlss.dll file to Metro Exodus, it refuses to toggle on DLSS (even if it was already on prior to swapping nvngx_dlss.dll).

    Determining if SSD has been replaced

    Kinda just had something similar happen. Purchased an open box WD SN550 Blue 1TB NVMe drive at a 25% discount, tested it on my USB to M.2 adapter to see what CrystalDisk had to say about it... "Open box" 40TB written in the span of (at the time) 199 power on hours. Holy shit. By comparison...

    Holy shit. Chia maybe? I'm not very familiar with mining/pharming tbh.

    Determining if SSD has been replaced

    Looks legitimate to me when compared to other images on the web. Load it up with Samsung Magician, it should tell you pretty quickly if it's genuine or not.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Aaaaand... I had just designed and 3D printed a white backplate for his Dell OEM RTX 2060 (that hideous green PCB you see above) that he bought as a temporary GPU. Just finished printing it last night, and now he doesn't need it. xD

    Buddy just clinched the white 3070 STRIX, which is the 3rd shuffle win between the 2 of us and the last piece of the puzzle for his black & white build.

    Prime Day and Newegg Shuffle had raw and awkward sex in a windowless van. Today's shuffle is their rotten offspring.

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    If I were in a situation where I couldn't upgrade and my gaming performance was suffering for it, I'd adapt by turning down the settings.
