    Anthem Demo a "Clusterf*ck": Connection Errors, Loading Issues, and More

    I have been playing it since launch yesterday and playing in private as a single player game it works. Trying to do a squad match is absolutely unplayable as the rubber banding is ludicrous. I don't understand how BioWare using the Frostbite engine with proven networking code can't get this...

    9900k worth upgrading to ?

    I just changed from a 1950X to the 9900K and even at stock clocks the 9900K feels much faster and smoother. I also notice smoother framerates even at 4K which I can only guess must be due to improve frametimes. Just for reference, my 1950X @ 4.0ghz had a Passmark of 7155 and the 9900K at stock...

    Windows 10 Pro Has Amnesia and Wants You Buy a New Copy from the Windows Store

    Seems Microsoft nailed my main desktop machine, but left my server and HTPC alone. Notebooks seems OK too. Weird how random it is.

    Meltin is Making Robotic Avatars for Space Work

    Boston Dynamics has some very advanced mobility for sure, but I think the point here is the overall hand dexterity that MELETANT offers. I have seen nothing from BD with actual hands with fingers that articulate like a human... yet...

    AMD to Showcase SMACH Z Handheld Gaming Console at the Tokyo Game Show

    Is it just me or is SMACH Z a little too close to shmucks in pronunciation? :)

    Preorder the New AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper Processors Today!

    While absolutely true, that would not necessitate making the move to the 2990WX though. If you want better gaming performance I would guess the 2950WX is the better way to go.
