    Star Wars Squadrons in VR on Steam...Amazing experience but nauseating

    In preparation to this game I decided to dig up my old Logitech Wingman Force Feedback joystick from storage to test if it still works on current PC games and of course it did not, Windows did find it but not even basic functions worked in games. But now that I looked for a modern replacement I...

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    You can also use desktop mode, although that is a bit clunky on phone screen. But there are also browsers that allow you to view FB messages in mobile site like Kiwi Browser. Sometimes Facebook breaks it but it gets patched eventually.

    CD PROJEKT RED Mandates Six-Day Work Weeks Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s Launch

    If that is how they worded the original promise then that was really stupid of them.

    CD PROJEKT RED Mandates Six-Day Work Weeks Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s Launch

    Did they actually vow not to do it again, as in no crunch what so ever cross my heart and hope to die and that sort of thing, or did they just vow to do better and avoid the situations that happened with Witcher 3 where the crunch was simply inhumane? Actually this is a real question because I...

    CD PROJEKT RED Mandates Six-Day Work Weeks Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s Launch

    Probably, because if this were EA or Ubisoft or any of the other big name developer the overtime would be unpaid and more a rule than an exception, it is pure exploitation. In this case it is a few more extra days of bug fixing and the workers get a very hefty overtime compensation. I really...

    AMD Confirms Zen 3's Performance Is Monstrous and Speculation Thread

    This is where you are wrong. Ryzens scale with temperature. Even on stock the better your cooling is the more it boosts, in both duration and amount. And if nothing else, you gain in silence. Anyway, you can have 120mm tower coolers that run around both Wraith Stealth and even big Wraith Prism...

    AMD Confirms Zen 3's Performance Is Monstrous and Speculation Thread

    I will, I'm not in a hurry because my 3600 is still rocking solid. Hell, it is a GPU upgrade that I need first and foremost, vanilla GTX1080 is getting old.

    AMD Confirms Zen 3's Performance Is Monstrous and Speculation Thread

    Dissapointed by the lack of non-X 5600. I am always after the best bang for the buck and AMD's upcoming CPU's are too close to Intel pricing for my comfort. Yeah they are now equal and perhaps even better than Intel, but I am cheap ass and proud of it. :p 290 is too much for a 6 core in my book.

    MSI Subsidiary caught selling marked up Nvidia cards on eBay

    Wow. First the "PR department gone rogue" and now "refurbishing department gone rogue". There is something very deeply wrong with MSI.

    Star Wars Squadrons in VR on Steam...Amazing experience but nauseating

    Thanks for the headsup. I will get this game eventually because flying around in Tie Fighter in VR is simply too good idea to pass up, but I hope they have fixed the bugs by then.

    You guys SURE you want Evga cards?

    LMAO! "IMMA FIRING MY RAYTRACE!" Oh wow, I actually want one now, with the googly eyes added.

    CD PROJEKT RED Mandates Six-Day Work Weeks Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s Launch

    If this were unpaid overtime for extended periods of time (as in, months after months) as is unfortunately the case with the greedy side of industry in the USA, then I would have a problem. But this sounds like a normal paid overtime to meet a deadline, not "crunch". Usually it is also much...

    Should I upgrade my 65" Samsung KS8000?

    What pixels? 🤔

    Same. Or actually I have no idea what it is saying but "Hola.... Reverb G2... 10 de novembrie de 2020" is pretty clear I think. 😁

    HP Reverb G2

    I know, I also ordered from spanish Amazon. But unless HP pulls a Sony and completely messes up the dates like what happened with PS5 the I will trust the HP blog more than Amazon. But we will see...

    Most likely. Two separate cables would be a mess.

    HP Reverb G2

    It is official now. People who have preordered so far will get their headsets starting from early November. Other people will start seeing theirs shipped at December. https://press.hp.com/us/en/blogs/2020/hp-reverb-g2-vr-update.html

    Should I upgrade my 65" Samsung KS8000?

    It is possible it was fixed in firmware. I do not feel a difference on my PS4 and Rtings current measurements say the same. 🤔

    Should I upgrade my 65" Samsung KS8000?

    Did you remember to turn on game mode in HDR? There should be no difference, it should still be 20ms in game mode and 30ms in PC mode wether the HDR is on or off.

    Should I upgrade my 65" Samsung KS8000?

    Ks8000 does have local dimming but it is edge lit kind (about 8 zones, give or take) so in real life content it does jack and shit and may even be a hinderance in HDR content if you have subtitles on and if they are bright white. Instant vertical flashlight in center of the screen during dark...

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    You know, you can turn off personalised ads from Facebook settings. I dunno if it reduces to tracking but at least the whole thing seems a bit less creepy.

    HP Reverb G2

    I am pretty sure that it is just a placeholder date that was put somewhere in fall. 🤔 But I would be glad if proven otherwise.

    5.1 via optical out

    Every Realtek chipset is capable of compressing 5.1 audio from games into either Dolby Digital or DTS, but in most of them the feature is soft-locked away due to licensing stuff. However you can download unlocked 3rd party drivers and they work just fine, just select either DTS or Dolby output...

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    I can't help but think that Ars' review was unnecessarily harsh. Yes Facebook sucks and we all hate it but otherwise it seems like they let that cloud their judgement on otherwise very competent headset (on paper and based on Youtube reviews) that is first and foremost aimed for the generic...

    HP Reverb G2

    All we know for sure is Fall 2020. That means October at earliest if things go smoothly but November is the most likely shipping month. If we get our headsets in october then consider ourselves lucky.

    After Ampere Launch Survey

    I wait for the Big Navi launch first, and then snatch 3070 if AMD does not deliver anything comparable. I just realised that 3080 would be too much for my 500w PSU that is in my ITX build. It would run but it would be close to maxing out and it wouldn't be healthy in the long run.

    PSA: Measure Twice - Order Once

    You are right, sorry. I meant I hope there are eventually shorter solutions, standard 2-fan size.

    PSA: Measure Twice - Order Once

    Oof. That card might be a problem for my Lian Li TU150 ITX case. I hope that the third party PCB solutions can be shorter than this.

    Oculus Quest 2 announcement leaks ahead of time

    Yup. Without the soul selling part it would cost about 499, rough estimate. Still, this is a tempting prodict but no, I stick with my HP Reverb G2 preorder. No strings attached on that one.

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    I will let you know. I also max out the IPD on my Rift CV1. Measured from mirror my IPD is around 69-70 so I also fall outside of the G2's ramge but apparently because of the big sweetspot it should not be a problem. We will see.

    Id cooling fans?

    I do not those but the ones with Gentle Typhoon style ARGB fans. They are actually quite decent fans, quiet and cheap. Amazing value for the money. But them I would not use on radiators because of the flower design of the shell. They leak too much air from the sides instead of pushing them...

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    Original Vive? First gen VR like original Oculus Rift, horribly outdated. Vive Pro? Better, but WAY overpriced considering what is available at markets today, Valve Index and even Oculus Quest made that headset mostly obsolete. And HTC Cosmos was a flop. HTC's only good side (does not apply to...

    Which VR headset to buy in 2020?

    I have preordered Reverb G2, it should arrive some time around October or November. As far as picture quality goes, based on reviews of preproduction model on Youtube the picture quality should be the best there is and tracking should finally be good, thanks to the added cameras of WMR 2.0...

    HP Reverb G2

    The other would be Tyriel Wood, the guy who does through the lense videos quite often. But as I said before, his preproduction model light me older because, IIRC, there was an issue with the lenses which HP says is already fixed and (to my knowledge) MRTV's model does not have it, or at least he...

    TechGuide: Hisense launches Dual Cell TV with the black levels of an OLED and the brightness of LED

    Yeah the blue oled pixel is a red flag but maybe Samsung has figured something out. 🤔 It will be interesting when it gets released one day.

    TechGuide: Hisense launches Dual Cell TV with the black levels of an OLED and the brightness of LED

    I have to add, do not mix the oldschool Amoled into LG's WRGB OLED technology, which does not even have blue oled pixels. They are functionally very different and LG's take on the OLED does not suffer even nearly as bad from the problems that AMOLED on a phone screen does. Burn in is still there...

    Project Cars 3

    If it is like Forza (as in the standard series, not Horizon) then I do not mind. Forza series is pretty realistic. Not as hardcore as Project Cars was but realistic enough to feel believable with a nice wheel and pedals. Horizons however are a bit too arcadey (last time I checked) for my tastes...

    HP Reverb G2

    I admit MRTV gets a little repetitive on his G2 videos, but then again because he also runs a VR lounge where to VR devices (not just headsets jut also gloves etc...) the pandemic really hit him hard and devastated his income. Having the first G2 was pretty much godsend in his situation so he is...
