    Vive to Rift

    Windows MR's Steam VR support is scheduled to drop on the 15th. Why not sell the Rift and pick up a Samsung Odyssey? No more tracker hassles.

    Used Rift or Windows mixed?

    They planned to have SteamVR compatibility working on launch of the first round of headsets, just didn't happen.

    Pimax 8k kickstarter

    Forget the 10m cable. The standard cable isn't stable at higher frequency ranges yet.

    Pimax 8k kickstarter

    I get the same impression. Someone mentioned the use of a RedMere like technology for the 10m cable but I'm highly skeptical. It's a shame Pimax did all of these crazy add-ons. I think they'll get bogged down delivering them. Most addons are done by partners but integration takes engineering...

    What Drives are We Putting in our NAS systems These Days?

    I've never had trouble selling off a disk, no matter how old, as long as it passes smart tests and is priced right.

    Pimax 8k kickstarter

    10 meter would have to be fiber. No way Pimax can pull that off with regular copper. Google around for fiber displayport cables. They're so expensive most sites do the "call for pricing" thing. This place lists prices. Click the "cable length" tab. The 10m cable is $750! High frequency...

    Pimax 8k kickstarter

    Pimax 8k kickstarter

    Pimax said the fps problem is caused by one of the chips in the video path not performing up to specification. Pimax said they're working with their supplier to fix the problem. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I heard it. Reddit? Youtube? Dunno.

    TPCast Pre-Order?

    Especially considering the Intel version might make its way into laptops like WiDi.

    Blade Runner 2049 Memory Labs

    I played it yesterday. Short, crap graphics, and boring as hell. Models look like something from seven years ago. Maybe worse. Mental note to never get excited about titles that release on GearVR. I had more fun in Aircar.

    Pimax 8k kickstarter

    The kickstarter is projected to hit almost $3 million. Considering the risk of kickstarter vs buying a traditional product there's clearly huge demand for next-gen VR and beyond. VR isn't going anywhere. :)
