    DISH "Home Media" app - Gone?

    Try using your TV's dedicated DLNA player? My TV from 2011 already included this feature (as did the one I bought in 2017). I've been using it to playback media since 2013. Fuck cable boxes!

    RTX 3060 12GB

    IIt's called a 256-bit memory bus. The GTX 1060 only has 192 bits available. That trick is called "lowering your GPU margins," a trick you have to use when you are behind on absolute performance, perf/watt and bandwidth efficiency AMD has actually been raising prices with RDNA1 (5500 has been...

    NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139

    This just feels like another cash grab franchise at this point: they bungled the release, then redressed it up in some trendy "Game iif the Year Edition" Poptart for 10$ more than it was They still have not patched the buggy mess , and at this point it exists to sell DLC sexy outfits for...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Hey folks, guess what happens when your only competition gets distracted on porting Skyrim to the Commodore 64 / Sega VR glasses, and keeps pumping dough into that that stupid thing called Fallout 76? Oh yeah, no new SP game releases in the last five years! You think folks have been...

    Samsung's 110-Inch MicroLED 4K Is Gorgeous

    Well, they are slowly making this higher DPI...but meanwhile, the 8k OLED has 2.5 times that pixel density for 1/4 the price. -Strelok,It's going to take a whole lot longer than 5-10 years to catch a swiftly-moving target :D OLED basically took-over the gap left by plasma, but making the case...

    They've been waiting for the 2GB density chips (the same trick the entire RdNA2 lineup uses.) It will only add another 100 to the price.

    RTX 3060 12GB

    They've been doing that shit since they re-birthed the Ti series back in the Kepler days. GTX 660 Ti ring a bell? The GTX 660 was 106, while the Ti was a highly-cut cut 104. Then they continued that same shit with the Kepler refresh (GTX 760 = GTX 670 rebrand). Nvidia has typically been...

    AMD Radeon 6900 XT Review Round Up

    So you don't discount the fact that the $300-more-expensive card is copying the same pointlesss RTX 3090 trick (even wirse because they add no more VRAM?) It's %5 higher performance for $300. Also, be sure that you wait to call RT pointless until you see big tittles like Cyberpunk launched...

    AMD Radeon 6900 XT Review Round Up

    Not when you get RT involved. Within a year, more-demanding RT games are going to all be slower-performing than the (cheaper) 3080. The target-market of this card is really hard to define (same vram as 6800, so no real $300 value there).

    AWS Engineer put Windows 10 for ARM on Apple Mac M1

    Precisely this. Now that Apple controls the whole hardware stack, expect them to castrate max specs in-favor of reduced board area (just like the iPad "Pro"). Expect them to continue to give you half the memory capacity of their old models (even with the upcoming 8-core versions). Fast-enough...

    AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT: max GPU clock of 3GHz

    You folks are buying into the same hype that launched the 3900 on a poor footing. it is barely 10% higher performance (and only at 4k) The 6800 XT is only 15% faster than the 6800, so I wouldn't expect 6900 XT to hit more than 10% faster. that will match the 3080 in non-rt Even The hyped-up...

    A dual gpu PS5 could be coming soonish? Already? >_>

    Why, it's the same trick PS4 Pro used. They just doubled the number of GPUs on-chip (and waited for patches to add performance to existing games). It's easier to copy and paste the same GPU plus overclock it, than it is to redesign it (and now that game designers are used to this, they will...

    AMD and NVIDIA

    if all you care is about digital art displays, and assuming already own an NVIDIA card, just buy a GT710 with HDMI + DVI, and install that in the second -port. if you already own a single AMD card, look into using a DisplayPort MST adapter (they can support up to six monitors that way.)

    80 Plus Hikes its Testing and Licensing Fees, Could Affect Prices of Low-Volume PSU Models

    I can understand why they did this - there are more PSU models out there than there are Motherboard base models. And each comes with enough design variations to complicate testing (some even change their OEM with different capacities under the same base brand!) Compared to mobos/video cards...

    Is it really not possible to play BF1 with a 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU?

    Yeah, I would avoid AMD cards from the same era as the GtX 1060. The RX 470/480 is slower, and thanks to factory overclock, it can use up to 50% more power(not recommended for that PSU) If you must use AMD from that era, pick-up the RX 460 (but the 1050 is faster) The 1060 is the highest...

    Why do you suddenly feel the need to run dual-cards? Is it for performance reasons.,. or because you want to hook more than 4 monitors up? We can't really tell you the downsides, until you tell us your intention.

    GeForce RTX 3070 Reviews

    It's possible. It could be hitting the 14Gbps memory wall at 4k (as I previously mentioned), or it could be running out of VRAM. We wont know until NVIDIA releases the 16gb card, so be patient, Grasshopper. But the fact that the 2080s is only 5% faster than the 2080 says it's likely capacity...
