    5700XT driver situation August 2020

    ran a 5700 flashed to XT for months and months, zero issues. I liked the radeon software better than nvidia too. i ended up getting 2070 super and selling the 5700, because my 2019 OLED C9 only supported gsync.

    Any pro fps players here?

    Most pros run a low res like 1024x728, and they use 240hz monitors. The lower the response rate the better, so 1ms G2G IPS or TN monitor is your best bet. Get headphones with a wide soundstage, and wireless gaming mouse like the Logitech G Pro wireless. Nothing beats game sense, reaction time...

    What's the latest on AMD's driver issues for the RX 5600 XT and similar models?

    I've had a vanilla 5700 for aproximately 6 months, no drivers issues... it was just used to game and drive an LG OLED tv for gaming. Sold it only because I realize the OLED only worked with Gsync, so I picked up a 2070 super.

    1080ti to a rx580? Am I crazy?

    Imo the RX 570 is a much better value. I bought one from bhphoto for 118 shipped no tax with 2 free games and 8GB of GDDR5. Sold both free games and it runs all my steam titles on my 1080p60hz tv just fine with high even utlra high settings.

    Hackers Use Stolen Credentials from Data Breaches to "Hack" a Nest Thermostat

    The term hack lost all meaning a decade ago. What was hacking was really "cracking", but media and culture just completely misappropriated the word. Most of serious InfoSec professionals shun being called hackers, and we can tell poseurs who called themselves hackers from a mile away...

    Is Overwatch poorly optimized? or is my 1080ti just bad?

    They recently had a brand new update which seem to drop the fps on my buddies laptop, I think he runs a 960m. Also GPU's don't scale linearly that way, paying double the price of a 980ti for a 1080ti does double the performance. More than likely a confluence of issues with the new OW updates...

    Acer Predator XB1 27 Inch IPS 165hz @costco 599 GSYNC

    The problem with my monitors and cables were that DisplayPort cables can't reliably carry a strong signal to the monitor on a cable longer than 6". So if you got a 8 or 10" cable, it's not working. Right when I switched to a QUALITY 6" displayport cable, it worked perfectly fine.

    Verizon and T-Mobile in a Virtual Tie for Best US Network

    The problem with the T-mobile signal is that the good spectrum, was bought up by AT&T and Verizon for years. T-mobile actually has more antennas than Verizon or AT&T, but their penetration and range was lacking in comparison because they spectrum they owned were not ideal. I had T-Mobile for a...

    Acer Predator XB271HU - 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB 144hz

    To be fair, I have two XB270HU, both perfect but they were June and July builds. I don't doubt that the XB270HU had manufacturing problems though my three ASUS Swift's had the same issues and I was playing the lottery everytime I had to buy one.

    I don't know if this any help or not, but I got mine from a local Microcenter. They had 3 in stock, I figured if I didn't have luck on the first one... I'd try for the second one. Mine was a june 2015 build. Low and behold, the first one was perfect. G-SYNC is amazing, and the colors are...

    AMD: Zen will offer 40% faster performance per clock than Carrizo

    I'm as big of a Intel/Nvidia fan boy as it gets. I have NEVER owned a AMD cpu and my last radeon was 10 years ago... but if the Zen can do what it claims, I'll hop back on the AMD wagon just to support them. The latest generation from Intel (Skylake) has been complete shite. With a complete...

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    I will say the ROG Swift monitor has slightly better pixel response than this monitor, so if ultimately you want the BEST fps and motion monitor, it's the Swift. But other than that this monitor is fantastic, as far as uniformity is concerned the Acer wins by a landslide. G-SYNC is obviously...

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    I dunno, I guess I won the Monitor lottery. Mine is flawless except for maybe one or two black light bleeding spots. Then again I've never had a perfect IPS monitor in that regard (I've owned four). I wait a couple of months though, because i had the Asus Swift (funny because all 3 i had, had...

    Is G-Sync worth dealing with the quality issues of Acer and Asus?

    Most of the people complaining have early adopter syndrome. The first few batches are bound to have issues, I own 4 G-Sync monitors (3 of them to be sold) and not a single one has a dead pixel or issues. They key is I waited 3-4 months after they came out to buy one, and when I bought one... I...
