    Old and Uninformed: I need to replace an 8-year old GTX 680. What's the best $200-300 card?

    Would you consider buying a 5600XT or even a 1660 Ti a bad purchase right now? Are we expecting these cards to further drop in value once 3070/6800 are in stock?

    Unreal Engine is Getting Destructable Environment Support

    Maps are meticulously designed for balance between teams. Morphing the terrain changes the strat. BF4 had the best implementation of this but it was obvious what they did, they basically designed 2 versions of every map, one nice and fresh and one completely wrecked after a 30 minute campaign...

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    120hz looks good with CGI and video games because there is no illusion required to sell a shot. Punches can connect, bodies can fly, action can be as hard hitting as desired. But when you introduce real humans into the equation you have to cheat, you have to use stunt doubles, camera angles from...

    Oculus Quest Features an Active Cooling Fan

    I had a DK1, DK2 and Vive, each representing a generational leap in technology from its predecessor. The quest is the only new VR device that has renewed my interest, and dare I say pretty damn close to the the final frontier of VR. It has always been about freedom. Whether it was the clunky...

    Rotten Tomatoes Bans "Want to See" Score, User Comments before Films' Release

    Possibly, but honestly I think pretty much all of the comic book movies since Iron Man have been pure ass. Avengers? Sucked, all of them. Wonder woman? Dont get me started. Black panther? Too much SJW involvement for me. They're making movies just to make movies. They're picking all these...

    Facebook Applies for Patent to Figure Out Who You Live With

    I'm starting to feel less and less like an anti-social media hipster and more and more glad I deleted my Facebook account last year.

    Nvidia Fakes the Moon Landing

    Do you also look at both sides of the flat earth debate? Or vaccines? It's ok to summarily dismiss the opposition if their stance is complete and total absurdity. We dont need to give "both sides" equal opportunity in some cases.

    Man Who Uploaded Viral Deadpool Movie to Facebook Sentenced to Prison

    These examples and the one's that followed deserve prison time because their actions impacted the lives of others. Uploading a movie to facebook only cost the studio money (in theory). In that case some kind of civil fine is more befitting.

    Google Pixel 3 XL Makes an Early Appearance in Hong Kong [Leak]

    It's not so much quality anymore as it is performance. Any custom launcher as big as TouchWiz will basically take 1-2 years off the lifespan of your device. Whereas a Note 9 running stock might perform flawlessly until maybe 2022, now it'll show its age around 2020 as newer resource hungry apps...
