    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Couldn't resist recovering my account just to comment how excited I am about this monitor. I'll be interested to see what Linus's video shows too.

    The full Tonga - aka Radeon 380X (mk2) - when?

    he's actually not an nvidia troll just a retard he hates all "sinks" equally without even beginning to comprehend anything about what he hates. He complains in any thread where GSync or FreeSync are mentioned, and apparently also in threads where Asynchronous rendering is mentioned too.

    Yeah you start to get SERIOUSLY diminished XP at around 12-13 levels above the map and the new system basically requires a big playgroup to sustain maps above 75 which I dislike

    OLED 4K TV with 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 spotted, what about burn-in?

    "AMOLED" just means "OLED with a decent amount of pixels", so it's not that per se. the thing is, cell phone screens often use a piece of "technology" called PenTile which cheats on pixels by having a really weird subpixel structure (not at all like LCD's RGB subpixels but a more customized...

    Who's getting a HMD?

    I mean, VR has the unfair disadvantage of having to handle each eye separately (much like active 3d glasses alternating frames etc etc) so it IS pushing 2160x1200 pixels which is a very respectable fraction of 1440p, especially @90hz and considering it's the only OLED PC display under 55", I...

    Who's getting a HMD?

    "This headset works with 2160 x 1200 resolution - that's one resolution over two OLED displays" translation: 1200x1080 is the resolution that your eye sees. 1440p is 2560x1440. not even in the same neighborhood.

    OLED 4K TV with 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 spotted, what about burn-in?

    lmfao "OLED IPS" ahahahahha *ahem* sorry IPS is a LCD panel technology, where there is a backlight and each pixel is simply a gate, allowing various amounts of light through. OLED panel technology is where each pixel is it's own light emitting diode, rather than a simple gate.

    Acer Z35 200HZ 35 Inch 2000R Ultrawide W/G-Sync

    Can't say I agree on 40+ inch, but you are spot on about 1080p is pretty much an insult at this stage even in an "ultrawide" 21:9 configuration. I do like that they at least considered refreshrates north of 144hz though, as 200hz sounds fantastic for ULMB purposes.

    if you are over 6k then sure I have no advice for you 6.9k mmr would be roughly top 0.001% of players, you are by far the outlier lol. Nobody else here complaining about bad teammates is in a remotely comparable situation to you.

    With respect to attackspeed first, the armor calculation only applies to physical damage and many builds do at least half if not more elemental damage. Even pure phys builds usually have hatred and maybe added fire damage that ends up adding about as much elemental damage as they do physical...

    I mean, your statement makes exactly 0 sense. For GGG to "set out" to make a hard boss they have to consider the balance and make the boss hard in the framework of the game's balance. Without a balance framework, the term "hard" is 100% meaningless. I will say that malachai felt a tad...

    Interesting I'm now at 6.1K HP and getting more interested in trying although my DPS hasn't really risen much. I feel like i'd want more armour though, with only 4k until I pop a granite. I haven't run the trio yet, mostly cuz i'm scared shitless of piety and her death laser

    Has anybody tried malachi on merciless? I kinda want to do it at some point but my level 75 dual-flame-totemer doesn't feel strong enough yet. 5.8k hp and 7.5kdps per totem does pretty well in low maps though. (Tempest)

    As usual, your best defence against getting 1 shot is still life/es total, not armor or evasion. That said, Evasion was basically OP last patch (arrow dodging made you projectile immune, acrobatics + phase acrobatics were enough additional mitigation that you only had to half-heartedly try...

    If you have above ~1.4k hp and decent lightning res then you should have enough HP to tank a normal a4 piety ray and still run through her other AoE balls to avoid a 2nd hit by the ray, which is enough to do the fight pretty much 100% safely. Ideally you don't ever get hit by the ray but...

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

    Exactly. That said, ULMB + IPS is still going to be much much much better than just IPS. Presumably in a similar manner to the Eizo Foris VA panel with ULMB that was night-and-day compared to most VA's, though only 24inch 1080p.
