    Oculus Quest 2

    If Air Link can have ASW that would be a big deal.

    Woops I was actually not wrong lol https://www.oculus.com/blog/introducing-oculus-air-link-a-wireless-way-to-play-pc-vr-games-on-oculus-quest-2-plus-infinite-office-updates-support-for-120-hz-on-quest-2-and-more/ tl;dr 120hz and official wireless support incoming.

    LG 48CX

    I'm not getting my hopes up at all but it's interesting nonetheless. I don't have any major complaints with the CX right now, just minor quirks. But some of them wouldn't exist if it was actually a monitor so yes... curious to know more about this Gigabyte thing.

    Oculus Quest 2

    Yeah we are stuck with 72hz since last update. Sucks as I really wanted to benchmark 90hz on some titles with my CPU/RAM upgrade. I would like to think it's because the 120hz update is coming soon. (probably just dreaming though, but the hardware is capable and they have sort of hinted at it)

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    So I guess this specific model has no issues then! Thanks for the info.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    Is there a good way to know beforehand whether a GPU cooler will work or not in those cases? The Alta F1 is appealing to me but I have really no clue if my Asus TUF 3090 will work in it.

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    Is that a US thing? There's virtually unlimited stock in Europe since launch, it's like Rocket Lake isn't selling at all (and nor should it - I say that while running a 11900k myself). It's also a ridiculous 200€ higher than the 10900k. But I have not seen the lower end SKUs going out of stock...

    LG 48CX

    I measured it on my unit with a meter and it was like the reviews said. 25 is around 100, 30 around 120 etc. I did not measure higher values because I have no interest in those and use the TV in a dark room (in practice I use 20-25 for SDR).

    Bluebooth audio is very high latency though (200ms+), it kinda makes sense. There is a low latency protocol (30-40ms) but it's rare and often not properly implemented even.

    LG 48CX

    Oh wow wasn't expecting that. I'll wait a bit more to install it though (probably not even available in Europe yet). Although I'm not sure yet how this will compare to manual calibration for a small framerate range like I am doing now. Since we can only have one single "Game" profile, having...

    As a single user you don't need a center channel, no. It would only bring a tiny gain of intelligibility for voices, in theory. My L/R Genelecs are set up the same way as Tol pretty much. (although I'm a little closer to the screen with a correspondingly different angle for the speakers)...

    Yea I've had the same expeirence. No impact on g-sync performance/functionality.

    LG 48CX

    I thought I might have a lot myself but quick maths say I got about half of what you got. Similarly low SDR brightness and due to COVID lockdowns I've played an old MMO with a static HUD (which can be considered somewhat "abusive") a LOT - probably 1k hours. And yes the set still looks...

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    My TUF 3090 has minimal coil whine in specific conditions, mostly when I hammer it with CUDA. However my Fractal R5 case does a fantastic job of blocking 99.9% of it - that's what soundproofing closed cases are good for, blocking higher frequencies. Vibrations and fan noise (except tiny ones of...

    Ah yes thanks for reminding of that - the sharpness setting at 10 does do something at 1080p specifically. Won't matter to most people here I imagine, but good to keep in mind nonetheless.
