    The key differences are MUCH better tracking and the ability to actually interact with your VR environment. Both lead to vastly improved immersion/presence... you are inside the world you are experiencing vs just being an observer. Also, you...

    The 8K X sounds the most appealing to me, but it's going to require some monster hardware to drive it. I'm thinking two 1080Ti's at a minimum to maintain 90FPS if up-scaling isn't employed and all of that resolution is actually being used/pumped...

    For the 1080Ti, the brand doesn't really matter all that much. It's a high end card and they'll all perform pretty much the same. Go for whatever is cheapest and available.

    I’ve got three of them that are still good. Plan to rotate them as back-up drives - won’t be powered up unless actually writing to them. Not too worried as to data loss with incremental monthly backups coming from the NAS. (Nothing critical...

    WD Red Pro’s? Or the normal variety? I’ve got 4 2tb WD Reds in my NAS in Raid 5. Just had my first one start to fail... lasted just over 3 years, so just out warranty. Decided to replace them all with 4tb HGST (HG0S04005) drives at $134 a...

    Well, they are using two separate 4K displays, so there is no single 8K signal/image being displayed, but rather a 4K image, one for each eye. From the interview, it sounds like they are using a scaler to up-convert the incoming signal to 4K as...

    Based on this hands-on from Tested, it's still very much a mixed bag: [MEDIA] There is potential, but it seems the lens system still needs work in that there' s a lot of distortion introduced in the way they are stretching the image on the...

  8. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Elite Dangerous 2.4 The Return Release Date Announced.

    Ahhh, but it does! Like I said, and I'm agreeing with you: As a game, yes it is lacking, but at least it's still evolving, available, and actively being further developed/worked on. As a sim in VR though, it is pretty frickin' incredible. I...
