    DOOM for potato heads still crunching z80s

    Need a new video card by next Tuesday, choices are 5700XT or 2060 Super (yuck to both), which one for WoW?

    The hate is that it’s AMD, and people who haven’t owned an ATI card since the Rage 128 want you to know that their drivers suck.

    Has your G-Sync display locked you into the Nvidia EcoSystem?

    I don’t have a brand preference, but my current monitor is G-Sync and I’ll be going with Nvidia this time around for that reason. I would have much preferred a Freesync monitor, but the best deal at the time I bought my monitor happened to be G-Sync if you can believe it, and since Nvidia cards...

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

    Anyone who believed that was an idiot to begin with. They’re a publicly traded company. They exist to make money for their shareholders, they don’t exist to do anyone a solid. AMD raising prices when they have a solid lead should surprise no one.

    3080 - What's the difference? Asus ROG vs TUF?

    It does for the 3090, but we won’t be able to say for the 3070 until the it launches. My understanding is that the power for the 3080 and 3090 is being limited in the video BIOS which is limiting gains from overclocking in the 3080 and 3090. Whether or not the same design decision is made in...

    3080 - What's the difference? Asus ROG vs TUF?

    This. I don’t see the point of paying an extra $150 for the Strix when overclocking these cards is only yielding like 3% extra performance, and the TUF is unlocked anyway and has good thermal performance. Save your money, just get the TUF. The $700 version of the TUF looks like it’s one of...

    RTX 3070 Mobile Rumors and Speculations Thread

    It’s probably the same scale they used to say the 3080 was double the performance.* *Double the performance in Minecraft and Quake II RTX. This is why people shouldn’t panic sell a video card based on marketing claims.

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    To be fair, I don’t entirely fault Nvidia for the current supply issue for a few reasons: 1) From what I’ve been seeing, retailers said that launch inventory was not smaller than normal, so this is an insatiable demand problem more than anything else. That and bots. Something needs to be done...

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    It’s not just Nvidia. Don’t take marketing claims seriously in general, period. Remember “wait for Vega”? How’d that work out for everyone?

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    Yes, but with a 5700XT instead of a 2060, you don’t get to run RTX and experience gaming in all it’s ray traced glory at 20FPS.

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    You’d think, though, that someone who ponied up $1200 USD for a 2080Ti only to sell it at a fire sale price less than two years later would know enough by now to not make a decision like that based on a marketing slide showing benchmarks from unidentified games. Don’t we all know this by now...

    What is 8k gaming?

    1) DLSS isn’t actually rendering 8K pixels, so it doesn’t count. It’s still an approximation, albeit a good one. 2) Even if you could count DLSS as 8K, only select titles currently support it, there aren’t many yet, and even in the ones that do, performance varies, with titles for graphics...

    How to make a Scalper pay

    The best way to make a scalper pay is simply to not buy from them. Guys, it’s a video card. Be an adult, wait a few weeks, and buy it through normal channels. Let the scalper idiots bury themselves in a pile of video cards that no one will buy.

    Cyberpunk 2077's Minimum & Recommended Specs Revealed

    That’s tough to do because everyone has different expectations of what constitutes a “good” gaming experience. Either way though, does it really matter? I’ve been PC gaming since the 90s, and I can’t think of a time I’ve ever looked at “recommended” specs, let alone allowing it to dictate what...

    Cyberpunk 2077's Minimum & Recommended Specs Revealed

    Not to sound rude, but it really isn’t CDPR’s responsibility if people don’t understand basic computer hardware. They can’t write an entire guide explaining the difference between a 4th gen i7 and a 10th gen i5 when telling people the minimum specs required to run their game.

    Dear Nvidia,

    Just wait a few weeks and let those idiots sit on all of the cards they bought. It’s really not a big deal. If having to wait a few weeks longer to acquire a $700USD video card pisses you off this much in 2020 when there is a global pandemic and most of us are just thankful that we still have...

    Cyberpunk 2077 MP monetization will make you happy to spend real money

    Yes and no. Projects might be getting increasingly more ambitious, but publishing costs have plummeted. Most distribution is digital now. That means you’re not stamping CDs, printing boxes, manuals, etc, and now that every game company is making their own launcher, they can also cut out...

    (Rumor) NVIDIA Ampere Launch Window Leak

    (Rumor) NVIDIA Ampere Launch Window Leak

    I doubt it. The primary demographic for the 3090 is “I have to own the best, so I buy the best”, also, e-peen. No different than gamers buying the Titan back in the day despite being a few hundred dollars more for a moderate performance gain. There will probably still be enough of a gap to...

    That’s because it works really well with the keyboard and mouse format. As long as that still exists, so should the start menu. I remember the first time trying to use Windows 8 on a PC, it was an absolute nightmare trying to navigate. Microsoft eventually had to capitulate, which took long...

    While we’re on the topic of inhuman amounts of floppy disks, does anyone else remember iOmega ZIP disks? I still have my old internal drive. 100MB on a single floppy disk, homie! Too bad CD burners became cool shortly after, making the ZIP drive a bad investment in retrospect.
