    HDR and full screen mode is still broken causing the game to crash. :(

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I am having random crashes after the two latest updates. I thought I had found a fix by switching to the Nvidia 451 Creator Version of the drivers, but then had a couple of drop to desktops today while playing the game. Before the crashes, a 4624 and 4672 event are shown in event viewer for a...

    MicroProse is working on a multiplayer VR bomber

    Great choice in games! I had all these on my old Amiga 4000. Lord only knows how many hours I spent with Birds of Prey! The intro video was amazing for the time too!

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I know it likely sounds confusing. What I am trying to say is turn HDR on your "Windows HD Color Settings", and turn off the setting with the RDR 2 game. On my system, if I have the Vulkan renderer selected under display options in game, the HDR mode stays on when the game launches, and...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Even true HDR Game mode looked like bunk in my opinion. I know everyones system is different, but do try forcing HDR in Windows, disabling HDR in game, and selecting Vulkan render. I am just so blown away with how good it looks. Besides Forza 4 and Doom Eternal, it is some of the most impressive...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I finally picked this up from CDKeys for 50% off and am really enjoying playing it this weekend! I just wanted to share my experience with HDR with others on the forum. Like others, I found that even adjusting the paper white value and nits setting, the game just looked dull with HDR enabled in...

    Do you happen to have a dark map when running HDR?

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    With announcements of features like this, I've lost any interest I had in this game. All I wanted was a good single space combat game in the veign of the original Wing Commander, and now we have this mess. Oh well, at least I only donated $50.

    Is it possible to play audio from Android Tablet to PC speakers using Bluetooth (Win 10)?

    Woke up today to find that my kitten chewed through the audio connector I was using to connect my Samsung Galaxy tablet to the Realtek line in on my PC. Before I go out and buy a new cable, I was wondering if it possible to somehow stream the audio from my tablet to my computer speakers using...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Thank you! Yes, the RTX 2070 Super is roughly equivalent to the 1080 Ti. I'm hoping to run around 60 FPS if possible.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I've heard the performance on this is abysmal compared to the port of GTA V, and that even on the newest video cards the game still struggles to maintain a reasonable framerate with higher detail levels. Is there any point trying to run the game on a RTX 2070 Super at 2560x1440? Or will I be...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    Thanks, Zinn! This was actually on sale, so I got it for around $700 CDN or $530 US which I consider quite a great value for the quality of the display. Still super happy with it!

    1440p IPS screen with good contrast?

    Just wanted to post that I begrudgingly upgraded my trusty Achieva Shimian 27" glossy last weekend with an Gigabyte Aorus FI27-Q, and I could not be happier. I do graphics work and some gaming on the side, and the display is simply wonderful. I briefly tried an Asus Swift PG27Q monitor as well...

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    I'll take some screenshots of my BIOS setting this eve. I am confident my voltage is set to auto right now, but my idle temps are in the mid 40s. When doing my build, I tried to ensure the best possible airflow for my case which should be helping my temps as well. I do have to say I am in love...

    Thanks for the heads up. I download the 441.66 drivers, but am using the Creator Driver set and it may not have the same game ready optimizations.

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    Yes, that is what I've read. In my research for doing my build, I could not believe the difference that the IC makes. As I was populating all for DIM slots, I thought the Micron E would be the bets choice. Thanks for the Buildzoid info, I'll check it out this weekend and let you know how my...

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    I'm not sure. This is my first AMD chip since my XP1700 many moons ago so I'm not sure what the norm is. I am just really happy how everything runs out of the box with the default boosting. I think the only tweaking I am going to do is push my ram to 3600 speeds and call it good. On a side note...

    It's story line, but very painful low budget acting. I'm a huge Mechwarrior fan, and so far this is very Meh.

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    I can't believe how cool mine runs. Using stock bios settings, I am holdings post of about 4. 25 - 4.3Ghz on all cores and my temps sit around 55 celcius. This is using a Noctua D15. I was also pleasantly surprised that I had zero issues running 4 x 16GB sticks of Micron E at their rated speeds...

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced!

    I was just going to say the same thing. Good lord does this game look awful on my RTX 2070. Mechwarrior Online looks light years better. Reshade or Freestyle does nothing to fix the blurry graphics. As soon as you are in motion, it's blur-o-rama. When you come to a dead stop, things sharpen up...

    Recommend an affordable 1440p 120+hz Variable Resfresh Screen?

    I just picked this up this afternoon and it is hands down the nicest monitor I have seen. So very happy with it. I had bought an Asus ROG PG279 before hand and the image quality difference between the two is night and day. Deep blacks, amazing panel uniformity, and no backlight bleed. G-Sync and...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    I am unable to find any reviews of this monitor as it seems very new, but here is the link on Gigabytes page. I am honestly blown away by this thing. https://www.gigabyte.com/Monitor/AORUS-FI27Q-P#kf https://www.gigabyte.com/Press/News/1717

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    Found a gem! Went out monitor shopping today, and initially brought home a Asus ROG Swift PG279 to get it home and find the screen had a horrible gradient which went from clean white at the bottom, to a yellow at the top of the screen. Reading online it seemed like quality control is a bit of an...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    Thanks for the reply. I've looked at our local computer stores, and I haven't found a single matte display that I like. They all just look so lifeless compared to a glossy display. I can't figure out why when TV and Smartphone manufacturers choose glossy displays for the superior image quality...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    I just got my new system build together, and unfortunately my RTX 2070 Super does not have DVI so I am looking at having to replace my beloved Achieva Shimian 27" 2560 x 1440 monitor. I can buy a powered DVI to display port adapter, but it is going to cost about $185 CDN so I am looking to see...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I was so excited when Squadron 42 was announced as I was looking forward to a good story driven single player game. Now I am regretting my funding as it is apparent this is not at all a priority to the developers now. With the continual feature creep we will never see this game released.

    64 GB Memory Kit for X570

    I spoke with technical support at MSI, and then said that even if all four ram slots are populated, the ram will be able to run at it's rated speeds. Different from what the sales person at Computer Express told me.

    64 GB Memory Kit for X570

    I'm replacing my old 3D rendering workstation, so all the cores of the 3950X will be put to use. Hopefully the availability isn't as poor as the 3900X. I was going to do a 2950 TR build, but with the IPC improvements even the 3900 is within spitting distance despite having four less cores. With...

    64 GB Memory Kit for X570

    Found this in stock at NewEgg.ca which is rated as compatible with the motherboard I was looking at. It's $50 more for 3600C16 vs. 3600C18. Is it worth spending? I can't find any reviews comparing the two speeds. If it is negligible, I will just go with the cheaper kit. One other I had wanted to...

    64 GB Memory Kit for X570

    Hi all, I see there are many different threads about memory for the new Ryzen 3000 series of chips. I am in the process of putting together the components for a 3950X build, and would like to find a 64GB kit that plays nicely with the MSI Prestige X570 Motherboard. I know that C14 3600 is...

    Any new glossy 4K displays coming out in 2019?

    I have been using my Achieva Shimian 27" for the past five years, and after calibration the image quality has been excellent. Some newer technologies like G-Sync / Freesync, higher 120+ Hz, and 4K have left me wanting to upgrade. My problem is, I absolutely hate dull, lifeless, hazy, matte...

    Am I the only one that thinks Wolfenstein 2 is a pretty horrible game?

    Being an old school gamer, I loved the every Wolfenstein game up until the 2009 Wolfenstein release. I have not played New Order, although I tried Old Blood and invested about the same amount of time as The New Colossus before getting bored. Just seemed like I had so many other better games on...

    Am I the only one that thinks Wolfenstein 2 is a pretty horrible game?

    I bought it on sale and wish I would have saved my money as I felt the same way. I played a couple of hours until the end of the sub level, and the respawning enemies and horrible level design just seemed like work. Even though I love most FPS, this one just didn't do anything for me and bored...

    Looking for major PC Vendors with Threadripper?

    Thanks for the replies, guys. The reason I am interested in a major vendor like HP is that my brother has had such great luck with them and their in home service. After the last year of non-stop computer issues, I would just like the piece of mind that knowing if something goes, it will be...
