    Battlefield 2042

    Yeah,unlike EA ,the management inside Blizzard can target bad things within months- it took EA a year to do the same! 343 is going to take multiple years to fix the mess that is currently halo ( but it will survive because momentum)

    Steam On Linux Usage Climbs Higher Thanks To The Steam Deck

    right,l and this is where they usually bungle the second set, and ultimately lose the game: this already happened with Index (3.5 years since launch, with no signs if life from VR games or a hardware sequel from valve)! Because the management inside valve acts like 3-year olds pretty...

    Battlefield 2042

    When they took away the campaign,they should have made it free to pay from the beginning; when even Overwatch 2 ditched the pay wall, it should have been obvious where the industry was heading! even broken gams like halo: infinity stone still have enough momentum from the record launch week to...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    run it at 30 fps, and the chunkiness goes away (in exchange for fantastic slowness). love all these successful console games where they just don't bother fixing unintentional stutter years later

    Steam On Linux Usage Climbs Higher Thanks To The Steam Deck

    isn't That the truth! unless you want to deal with the bundled deck and all of its integrated steam controllers and (for the 64gb version) one of the worst portable screens ever produced? otherwise, you instead get a mess of software variations spanning hundreds of different distros, two dozen...

    Why IBM chose the 8088.

    the reason we use thousands of different CPU architectures is because there really is a case for designer having a preference of completely reinventing the wheel/. Of course, almost every potentiality big CPU will become even bigger overnight, when large oem s require you to license it to...

    HTPC - no more?

    i Don't bother buying Blu-ray if i never want to see it again - start with Amazon rentals, then go buy the disc after you enjoy it TWO positives for media library 1. because then your can re-watch it an unlimited amount of times., all at zero extra cost/ clumsiness of setting-up and...

    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    its got way worse efficiency/watt than the entire RDNA 2 lineup. that means if it not idle, your fan is moving a ton more air (or it uses a larger hunk of metal)

    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    its going to take years before the stability is fully fixed, but at least performance should be a lot better in a year but in that same time-frame, NVIDIA will release the replacement for Ada. So kinds wasting their time here

    The state of gaming (really has me bummed out)

    when the vast majority of those games already run at 1440p 90-120 native,what's the point of aiming higher? you have the benefit of having a flexible PC, bit in the end of the day. you're still playing UN-optimized console ports!

    The state of gaming (really has me bummed out)

    its hard to justify an upgrade when your video card is nearly as fast as a high-end console ( and has the same CPU) i cant tell the difference between 1440p upscale-ed and 4k native on my lg b7 65, so I'm hurting on my htpc running a 1060 6gb, but its not absolutely killing me not having rt

    Portal with RTX

    hey look , yet another game that slows down to 15 fps on medium rt at 720p. when I enable rt o my1060! of course, the 3050 is still 50 bucks above msrp, one year after launch; its going to be 2025 before I can pick up a cheap used rt card from everyone favorite neighborhood mining agent ( even...

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    or he could just run 1440p 120hz up-scaled on that lg TV (remember when they added that? it looks identical to native 4k for most games!) quit pretending like this such a fucking gargantuan UPGRADE THAT ITS COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE!@

    Coil Whine on Nvidia 4090 and 4080 cards

    The higher the power consumption,the higher the chance of coil whine - but on the flip-side,a well-constructed set of inductor stays can bring a smile to any 450w party!

    Updgrading - RTX 4080 or OLED display?

    this right here - you may end-up GPU-limited in several games, but everything else will look fantastic the CPU could limit you, but if you're already running a 1440p gsync monitor (Assuming 144 hz at-least on a gsync monitor), tit should Run exactly the same!

    27" 240hz OLED Monitor!!! (but there's a catch...)

    I think the dpi of 1440p at 27 inch is fine on the plus side, this should lower the 120 hz models to well-below $500

    absolutely, but IO finally found a cheap upgrade for my 6-year-old 960 2gb (1060 3gb), so I'll have a lot more options for new steam games on by b7 over the holiday season! but I use the PC to record live TV and run universal media center (the b7 can handle both that and my entire media...

    How Long Until Intel Competes at the Top End?

    no, i suffer from HD disease, and when you add the fact that I'm also running on three hours sleep, its way too much work for me to open a tool like ultra edit to quick fix caps mistakes What makes this even worse: i cant touch type, so I'm stuck editing it after-then-fact as well as I can manage

    For those who are new to Steam, I want to know if Steam is sucking me dry

    any pure multiplayer game with live content has this same problem:by the time you're done buying content packs for characters , plus season passes, you ends-up paying way more than a typical 60 dollar msrp

    How Long Until Intel Competes at the Top End?

    the problem with mid-range: you cant subsidize the entire chip lineup unless you have a halo product See Vega 64, where AMD was a year late after Polaris barely match NVIDIA's 1060, and if they hadn't had an Ether rush, it would have gotten totally nuked by 1070 Ti!

    How Long Until Intel Competes at the Top End?

    is I3-3750K to i7-7700K a useful upgrade ?

    you need to game or encode videos to justify that multi-core upgrade - is windrows update not faster as well? i could justify upgrading from core i3 3225 to ii5 3570k on my htpc because by 2019 I was CPU-limited in several titles
