    Current state of PhysX? Is it well and truly dead?

    At this point I'd say SLI is more alive than PhysX. At least truly hardware based anyways. CPU's and Engines are reaching new levels and it's just not needed for a dedicated GPU. So it seems anyways. I still would would love to see some tests to truly prove but current drivers show hardware GPU...

    are solid state batteries the next big thing?

    Bummer. Often hear of this kind of tech but it usually fails because of some kind of cost or resource our fab related detail.

    Most Americans Find the Cost of Cable TV Is Too Darn High

    Wife and I have our moments but it's gotta be something special to us. Otherwise no. That being said I'm about to drop our cable package but do now have Prime, Netflix, DC, Disney + bundle. Probably more expensive than the basic cable package but at also have some nice 4k/Atmos options.

    DOOM Eternal Delayed to March 20, 2020

    I've been joking that don't these dev's know that when a game is released in winter we can use our OC'd rigs to heat the room. It's a win/win. Kill demons and save the planet. ;) I just hope it's as polished as the last one. I was seriously impressed with that one. Could play it on just about...

    When you have money falling out yer ass... Amazing Home Theater / Arcade

    It'd be another step up if that Tron game slid out and there was another room of stuff behind it. Either it's awesome! Thanks for the post.

    Picard Will Lead "Radically Altered" Life in New Star Trek Series

    Saw this and I'm actually looking forward to it now. At first had some doubts after some of the premise descriptions came out. This looks downright f'ing cool!

    Microsoft issues new Windows 10 update warning

    To some extent I think that's what the WIndows Repair did to mine to fix it. Be fine since as well. Just saw this over at Tom's: "Windows 10 Update's Latest Casualties: Action Center, Network Adapters (Update)"

    Admittedly the issue that happened to me might be unique. POST failed to completely finish. I should give a few more details though. Initial POST, o.k., then show's RAIDs/drive controllers, o.k., load Windows, seems o.k., then black screen with a hex code similar to changing ones I see during...

    Guinness Book of World Records creates new record just for EA: "Most-downvoted Comment on Reddit"

    So many great memories from childhood of Origin/EA in the 80's and 90's. From Ultima, Racing Destruction Set, Pinball Construction Set, Wing Commander, to multiple piles of IP's gathering on the sidewalk now. Good job EA, you worked hard to get this far.

    Microsoft issues new Windows 10 update warning

    When it comes to Windows updates my 2600k rig is a tank that just plows thru anything. In it's roughly 7-8 years of existence I think I seen only one or two Windows updates give me grief with the actual rig. In that time it's gone from 7>8>8.1>and all the variations of 10. Wednesday morning saw...

    Cities protesting 5g

    We got lucky when we found a house we could afford in the city. It's in a part of a development at the edge of the city and everything is underground. Most people don't notice it until I point out there's nothing to see except neighbors, trees, and skylines.
