    Pimax Update Adds Support For Foveated Rendering and Smoothing

    Fixed foveated rendering. None of the backers have the eye tracking add-on yet. And the FFR requires an RTX card for the time being.

    Do YOU have Problems with YOUR RTX card?

    HP now says they won't have the card available to send until March :facepalm: If I'd known Kyle was still looking, I'd have tried to send it to him! (Are you still looking? Would you take a 2080 to add some variety to your space invaders collection?)

    Do YOU have Problems with YOUR RTX card?

    I am still using my 1080 Ti. However, someone in my family got an HP pre-built system with a 2080 included. The video driver started crashing during GPU-intensive tasks, there was one incident where it would draw what looked like chicken wire on the screen, then the occasional BSOD, and finally...

    Windows 10 Mobile Is Officially Dead

    Kind of sad we don't have more options. I'd imagine that many Android users aren't so much in love with Android as "no thanks" to iOS people.

    Star Citizen Developers Valued at About $460 Million

    With the continued cashflow of this project, I would expect they'd have little trouble finding a buyer. But a big publisher would mean hard deadlines and creative control, and I don't think Roberts is ready to admit he can't deliver.

    Windows as a Service Is Failing

    I don't think that plan worked out so well for them. My workstation has been on a 2016 build since I got it. At least I'm not still on 7...

    Vive Confirms Ryzen Compatibility Issues With Wireless Adapter

    This is what will happen when you purchase a knock-off middle-eastern processor! /s But in all seriousness, this is another thing in the back of my mind when I consider purchasing AMD. While HTC has a horrible track record in terms of product support, product testing, and product pricing as of...

    LOL, show me the version of Windows Server that shipped with these items. If you want to run a server, use a server OS.

    Who here Pre-Ordered i9 9900k thru Amazon?! Please post in here

    I don't see a charge, so I'm guessing I'm not getting a chip tomorrow. Yay?

    Who here Pre-Ordered i9 9900k thru Amazon?! Please post in here

    I did. This may be a different take from you guys, but I hope they don't ship for release day delivery, so I can cancel if the benchmarks that come out on Friday are bad. Edit: I also ordered on the 11th, not the paper launch day.

    Bloomberg Stands by Chinese Chip Story as Apple, Amazon Ratchet Up Denials

    Devil's advocate: in this day and age of sealed warrants and warrant canaries, can we trust denials from Apple and Amazon, especially if this is an ongoing investigation? Hell, the companies involved might be under pressure for purely diplomatic reasons even if the intel is cold.

    ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 1440p Preview @ [H]

    Pretty please do VR benchmarks, at a super high like supersampling resolution like 2903x2557.

    The Verge Ridiculed for "How We Built a $2000 Custom Gaming PC" Video

    The cringiest moment for me was when he used the long radiator screws (intended for use with fans) to secure the radiator to the case. "These are really long because they've got to go all the way through." Next video: "Why is there a puddle under my PC?"

    2080 Ti for $1000 confirmed, HDMI 2.1/VRR confirmed dead for another year

    I feel a tad antsy not taking part in the pre-order madness, but I struggle to think what a review might show that would convince me to buy one. I guess the simultaneous launch of a VR headset with double the resolution of current models (Vive Pro and Pimax included), and proof this card can...

    RTX highend , leaked twin fan Ti and pre-orders microcenter...

    LOL, they've figured out people are waiting for Ti versions. I'm sure some will jump on that, but smart money will probably wait for a 2090 Ti or whatever actually takes the place of the x080 Ti in the lineup.

    Ex-Tesla Worker Makes it Official and Blows the Whistle to SEC

    Except that this guy has been playing the whistleblower angle from the moment he was fired, going so far as to argue directly with Elon Musk in an e-mail thread. So if it's a smokescreen, he thought rather fast on his feet coming up with it. He comes off as a bit full of himself, though.

    Intel Microcode Update Docs Tip Off Possible Ninth-Gen Core CPUs

    A baked in Spectre fix would make me more interested than the extra two cores. Wonder what that buys it vs an 8700k.

    New I7- 8086k CPU Anniversary Edition

    Just got around to opening mine up. It just has a regular i7 case badge, not a cool one with any of the limited edition graphics they've used in their advertisements for this thing. Bah, humbug.

    PSU too big for new build?

    I have the EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 PSU. It made more sense when I was running two graphics cards in SLi (and briefly entertained the idea of a third for crypto mining) with a 5960X and Rampage V Extreme. Now I'm moving to a build with the following: Intel Core i7 8086k Asus Z370-G Gaming Wi-Fi...

    Intel demos 28-core, 5 GHz CPU

    Fastest 26-core Intel CPU sold by Newegg is 2.1 GHz. Fastest 8-core Intel Xeon CPU sold by Newegg is 3.2 GHz. The 8-core CPU is about 50% faster than the 26-core CPU. So really, I should have said that 8-core parts will be running at 7.5 GHz. Simply amazing, Intel's new 28-core CPU will be...

    Intel demos 28-core, 5 GHz CPU

    If they're really launching this at 5GHz but it fits in the same power envelope as all the other X299 parts, then either next generation is going to be something truly special, or I will hold out for the 7 GHz 8-core part that will surely follow. Intel's HCC CPUs have always trailed their...

    8 core version of 8700k is coming this Fall!

    Or that it will launch at either 4.7 GHz or 5 GHz turbo frequencies, despite the higher price? Maybe this part will be an exception to the rule of releases past, but if I had an 8700k, I'd keep it for the higher clocks and lower heat.

    LMAO @ this 8086k pricing

    And this will be faster at anything that doesn't fully load more than six cores.

    New I7- 8086k CPU Anniversary Edition

    Are you under water? I'm new to Z370, is it necessary to put the VRM under water too? I'm hoping not since the power requirements are not quite so steep as X99/X299 CPUs. What voltage?

    New I7- 8086k CPU Anniversary Edition

    Sure, it's a cash grab - just like any higher binned chip. That's all this is - higher binned speed, limited production run, cool 40th anniversary sticker. If the price really is $425, I'd agree it's not really worth it over a $300 8700k you can pick up at MicroCenter - but that MicroCenter...

    Corsair Frag Harder Disco Lights RAM Harder

    Looks like their memory is supposed to work with Aura, but the fact that this thread was posted at all means it's YMMV. Or did you mean some other way of interacting with Aura other than the Aura software?

    New I7- 8086k CPU Anniversary Edition

    Call me crazy, but I'm more excited about this than the 32-core ThreadRipper or the 28-core Intel prototype. The Intel prototype needed to run on chilled water to get to 5 GHz. The TR demonstration used air cooling, but those parts only come in at 3 GHz stock, and likely won't overclock much...

There's an Intel Sweepstakes that opens 2 days, 8 hours from now, and will stay open for entry for 24 hours. 8086 of these will be given away. 50,000 are being made in total. My question is: where is Z390? Not sure what I'll do if I wait out Computex and there are no...

    Intel demos 28-core, 5 GHz CPU

    Few details were provided - can it be anything other than a heavily binned 14nm++ part? What's the TDP on this monster?
