    3080Ti speculation

    ^ Then maybe in 6 to 10 months Intel will release the cpu with PCIe 4.0 in Rocket Lake or whatever name. With its faster I/0 speed like AMD has. So do Intel users have to get new mobos or just pop in the Rocket Lake cpu into a few current mobos? edit: Don't know if that's going off topic but it...

    3080Ti speculation

    Here's a Tweaktown article and its source on the new "Titan". https://www.tweaktown.com/news/75147/nvidias-next-gen-titan-rtx-specs-teased-48gb-gddr6x-and-over-3000/index.html

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    You can fly a machine because of a glitch or maybe it's deliberately included or left in. No mod or cheat required, just follow the YouTube guide: Which is just luring the machine into the town, overriding it, mounting it and going up the stairs of the building and moving or jumping through...

    So buy Ampere or wait for AMD response?

    Not waiting for AMD but will wait 2 months in case Nvidia releases a card faster than the 3090. That may sound silly but I still remember the 2080ti and Titan RTX coming out sooner than many expected after the 2080.

    Security concerns (remote access) while I'm in a fullscreen activity like a game or a movie

    As far as targeting against me my concerns are generally about moving partially away from online banking and towards bank accounts with the net blocked because I've always viewed it as being safer which is a subject mentioned in one of the replies. So I'd have to go in person to withdraw. But...

    Security concerns (remote access) while I'm in a fullscreen activity like a game or a movie

    I'll get right to the question before I go on to explaining why I'm asking it and my story leading up to it. So while I'm in a fullscreen program and if someone succeeds in hacking using remote access into my pc and opens a program like email or my online bank account will I be automatically...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    Is the green glow at night from street lights shining on trees a little unnatural looking to anyone? Maybe it's too green, not sure. The street lights are not green, it's from the trees and vegetation showing the green glow during night time. If it's not an issue to others then it could be my...

    lg 48cx oled vs samsung odyssey g9

    It's about time I got a LG Oled after reading various forums about the C8, C9 and other models over the years. I'll go for the 48" CX, I'll feel better about it rather than a 55" although apparently I shouldn't have to worry about that size either for texture detail.

    lg 48cx oled vs samsung odyssey g9

    Is there any noticeable difference in graphic detail in games between screen size comparing the 48" to a 40"? The PPI on my 40" Samsung 4k ips TV is at a nice high 111 or 110 PPI (3840x2160). It's not the money, I can get the CX or other TV or monitor. But the PPI goes down on the 48" and on a...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Can you get a nice boost in graphics quality with MSAA? I think it does look better with it on but I need to check here if anyone else does too. Maybe the IQ is also being affected by sharpening in the shader I'm using or in the Nvidia control panel with newish drivers.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Wonder what the best film grain setting is for most players, in the Nvidia control panel. It's below the sharpen slider. Film grain at the far right on the slider at 1.0 reduces the grain the most but can cause loss of image quality even though more detail itself is visible. The loss of image...

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    I go crazy for most things Atlantis in pc games going back to the various adventure games of Atlantis in the 90's. But I've been warned about part 3 and the worst that could happen is I'll get upset and throw a hammer into my big monitor and be out $900. I can see somewhat of boring in YouTube...

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    I'm in the Atlantis DLC by using the option to skip the remainder of the base story. I'm only on The Hunted part of the main game. So I've done a few quests in Elysium and wonder is there a quick way to get into the city of Atlantis? That's probably asking too much of quick access options or...

    Intrusion detection warning for when gaming in full screen

    I'm looking into getting an intrusion detection (IDS) mainly for when I'm playing games in full screen on my pc. Like should it be an external device with light/audio warnings? Or can I be assured it can warn me with a popup or anything visual on the screen when I'm in a game? Or when in any...

    Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Downloaded the preload for the Open Beta and it'll be ready to play tomorrow morning (Sept 26) for the pc. Curious to see the draw distance and if some areas have less distant haze. Not asking for crystal clear distant view everywhere.

    System Shock 3 announced.

    Posters here weren't born when the original was out in the mid 90's. Ok well most weren't born. At least some weren't born then. Wonder if anyone remembers all those plants growing in a level near the end of SS1? It reminded me of a little terrarium.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer and release

    My Xbox One S isn't hooked up, it's stored in a cabinet but I can have it up and running in less than an hour to play this game. But I'm playing games in 4k now on the PC side. So I figure maybe order the Xbox One X for the 4k RDR2. Unless the S model can play it a full 1080 if any one knows? Or...

    Apple 32" 6k monitor

    It got my attention because I'd like to see how much better games look in 6k. I play games in 4k for exploration, meaning I play for the graphics or how a game looks. So my characters are all in touring mode when possible. So I searched for games that support 6k resolutions and got basically...

    Deus Ex : Mankind Divided

    I've heard 8X MSAA in this game beats down top video cards. But doesn't the single card 2080 Ti and Titan RTX make it practically playable in most areas with everything maxed and at 8X MSAA? Meaning the in game menu option for 8X MSAA, and all forms of AA turned off or set to application in...

    Asassin's Creed 5: Unity

    When I saw what happened on the recent news shows I wondered if anyone else besides me was reminded of exploring that cathedral in the game. Going up and down the exterior to find where you can climb and how high, the view from the top of the two main towers, and of course the interior and...

    Metro: Exodus

    The patch notes say that any custom saves you use won't allow you to get any image quality improvements or any gameplay benefits and changes from the big 1.3 patch of last week. Is that true for IQ if anyone knows? Sorry if it got mentioned already in the thread. The game looks better after the...

    Yes in the Caspian map, thanks. I'll try to do that part with Damir separately, if not then I'll just keep going from where I am now which is in the extensive tunnels a few parts after the lighthouse section.

    Metro: Exodus

    There's a short rock ledge I can't climb over and it may require following the storyline to get over it. I'm just exploring right now so does anyone know if you can drag or put objects that you can climb up on like barrels or anything? If a cutscene is required to get to the top of the ledge...

    Metro: Exodus

    So I'm trying to find the Dlss option in the menus. Well duh I now realize there is no Dlss menu option and no Dlss at all for a Titan V. Yeah maybe it was dumb for me to buy the card several months ago just to have the fastest gaming card at that time. Now it's two video cards slower. But hey...

    Just Cause 4

    Right click to go back in the menus. Man I didn't realize that for some minutes, very long minutes, damn frustrating. But I accidentally found out right click does the trick so far. Ok edit to come back again with what's up with right click to go back in a menu system? Is that a common design...

    Fallout 76

    Does the Hazmat Suit ever need to be repaired after you get attacked over a period of time? I'll find out later today when I hit level 15 and can put on a Hazmat Suit or at least the one for that level. But in the meantime wondered if anyone knows if the suit takes damage from bullets, teeth...

    Battlefield V

    To notice ray tracing over more of the screen try the Act 1 of the Norway campaign in single player. Lots of little reflections spread out over the snow on the ground and icy snow in the trees at night. Makes contrast better with shadows with all the moonlight shining through trees. Also better...

    Fallout 76

    This prefs ini edit from Reddit is working for me, makes far distance and even closer up look better. Other posters in the Reddit thread say it's working too and working nicely. Removes DoF and puts in FXAA to override whatever AA was being used. May need to set it to read only. It includes a...

    Fallout 76

    The time in that 14000+ hours in Guild Wars was from lots of different reasons: helping players get to new cities (being a runner,) repeating quests to get titles, reading chat about off topic things like current news, and chatting about it, spending time alone viewing and taking screenshots of...

    Fallout 76

    Well I also have a little over 14000 hours in a online game, Guild Wars (the first one,) since I got it in 2006. Anyway in less than 19 hours FO76 is released here in California which is today Nov 13.

    Battlefield V

    Since I'm reading the visuals are quite good in gameplay anyone know if you can hide the weapon or item off the screen? I know in BF1 you couldn't. It's to get a better view when in the mood for it in between battles.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    One or two reshades for the graphics seem to work for me. Don't know if anyone else has tried a reshade, haven't read the whole thread. One mod that may be of interest to others besides me is a Hud Toggle mod on Nexus which I installed and it works. Turns off/on the whole hud with one key. To...

    Agony.

    Wonder if the volumetric lighting can help make up for lower res textures, if anyone knows. Maybe later they'll release a high res pack. The new paths are something I'd play this for, which sounds like areas opened up on the edges of existing maps for example. Or being able to delve further in...

    2080ti Availability

    Micro Center has same day in store pickups for the Ti after ordering on their website as I'm pretty sure has been mentioned or implied already. So I could order one and drive up to the nearest store in Tustin CA. About a 1 to 2 hour drive from here in San Diego depending on traffic congestion...

    RTX 2080 Ti versus TITAN V

    Ok I think Tom's should be reputable enough, maybe? Er it's Tom's Guide which is not connected with Tom's Hardware, right? So not really sure if this is a decent benchmark. Could've had a few more games in the test I guess. It's dated only two days ago...

    RTX 2080 Ti versus TITAN V

    This is only 6 games and I hope this leak source can be trusted even though it's a broken nda. But the presentation sure looks nice and fancy. Very close, so need more games in more tests in the coming weeks.

    Any IQ loss (mainly in textures) going from 40" to 55" in 4k?

    For pc games mostly, and some movies and videos. I'm ready to get my first 55" screen and it'll be either a LG Oled 4k TV or Samsung Qled 4k TV. I'm mostly into graphics in games and especially sharp textures. Lighting and other IQ matters too of course. So I will be stopping in the middle of...

    I can't seem to re-enter the Desert of Light. I died there without getting a checkpoint so that puts be back in the previous map, the Chaos Temple. And that's all fine, I'm used to that in the game in general. Except I can no longer make the jump onto the ledge at the end area of Chaos Temple...
