    Nintendo Switch “Pro” GPU to be Based on Volta Architecture; 4K Support, Massive Performance Improve

    1) If I'm playing with just 1 other friend I don't need teammates 2) As for opponents, I let my game talk for me - it often just bullies and picks on me, but regardless

    Fingers crossed this means new 2021/2022 SHIELD TV based on same chip/Volta too and HDMI 2.1 🤞🤞🤞🤞

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    I'll just go Netflix/whatever + Redbox for occasional *whatever is after 4K* disc rentals (seeing as they carry 4K now while Netflix DVD doesn't) - I buy my discs now and rip for Plex - I don't use the physical discs aside to act as original source and 2nd backup (all my rips/encodes are stored...

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    I gotta say, with how complicated Dolby Vision is having to mux in multiple video streams, can encode some but make sure not all + there's multiple versions of Dolby Vision + the fact you basically need 2x copies of each title when it's Dolby vision (DVp7 from BR for things that support that -...

    Is my new RTX 3080 or AMD 5950X dying?

    prime95 would disagree - you can have 'apparently' working but working inaccurately

    Point being there is no thing that is full proof secure. The only determining factor in how secure something is, is how enticing of a target it is. There are ways and methods around anything and everything.

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    Good thing governments the size of the US, or China (hosting and bankrolling a lot of mining firms), are not known to stockpile unknown exploits for themselves and never do things like break into companies (either digitally with remote access or delivered pre-compromised HW - or even with...

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    Wouldn't shock me either. Be NVIDIA, see for whatever reasons on your end - whether the reasons are or aren't all within your control - higher income and profit stream from miners ATM than gamers, just start 'repackaging' your public-on-the-shelf formerly-gaming products as miner products.

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    No I think he's just saying Nvidia was acquiring more and more defective chips through all this and realized the could make a mining card with them, along with all this PR hubub about pRoTeCtInG gAmErZ (while still selling directly to miners all the while, cause money talks) - and make a few...

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    I remain skeptical and think "THEY DID IT, THIS WILL SURELY WORK!" is overly optimistic As said, where there's a will, there's a way Money, and the more of it, just hastens that all IMO mining firms are just doing the little Neo from the Matrix kung-fu 'bring it' gesture to this news.

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    Also easier to resell a gaming GPU than a mining GPU when you're done with it - so more incentive to buy a gaming GPU instead or as well in theory. But also I doubt they account for that, it's either just a side perk or even it's just some individual employees take them home and sell them. More...

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    Yeah, but guess who will pay more. Nvidia is a company, not a gamer's advocacy charity. I'm not saying any of this meaning I like it or am cool with it or whatever. Just think practically here people. A company wants to make money and will when offered to them. That's not wrong, its what the...

    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    This is just PR, mining farms hire ex-Nvidia engineers to make them custom bios and drivers. Once the HW is in your hands, no lock out works, especially when you have the same engineers who made the lock-out on payroll to un-lock it. Same deal with AMD cards, all their stuff is just PR, they're...

    Anybody mess with Dolby Vision UHD (non-DV Profile 5) files? Got some questions...

    My question is more about DV profile 8 compatibility and also getting the DV HDR10 BL within it to activate. I'm using Dolby MP4 muxer, doing everything right as described, but files come out with metadata saying that there's an HDR10 base layer, but the base layer never displays in HDR10 when...

    Anybody mess with Dolby Vision UHD (non-DV Profile 5) files? Got some questions...

    Starting to figure out how to add Dolby Vision files to my Plex Server. I know MakeMKV can make DV mkv files now and Plex can play them - but I specifically got some questions about muxing the 2 hevc layers into other DV profiles in a mp4/m4v container for broader native device DV compatibility...

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    I think you're wrong there too, miners are out buying laptops they themselves can't get enough GPUs ATM. Are they the main cause? No. One of the factors at play here, yes. Absolutely. You do realize, this is like the perfect storm of 5 different things all happening at the same time, that...

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    I'm saying if miners wanted to buy from AMD, they wouldn't tell them no. And they wouldn't specifically design their products to not be appealing/to be completely useless to miners, and only to rAdIcAl GaMeRzZ dUdE. AMD is a company, not a charity.

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    This is why you aren't running a GPU company. You sell GPUs. Doesn't matter if the Devil himself wants to buy one. Is his money green? He gets what he's willing to pay for, if so.

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    The #1307 issue is still marked 'open', that means it's not in any version of Handbrake, old or new, no matter how long ago the issue was first noticed/added to github tracker. Only when it's marked closed, will the version released after it's marked closed (for example, might not be the very...

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    Handbrake doesn't do HDR. When encoding a 10bit file, handbrake first discards all 10bit information (which includes HDR) and converts down to 8bit as part of its encoding pipeline. It then expands back to 10-bit when writing the file, but all the actual 10bit information in the original source...

    Manufacturing and shipping are down too this time, causing strain on the supply. It's like a cattle auction bidding for spots on shipping vessels atm.

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    I have all my Plex media data on the NAS + redundantly backed up on separate drives in my computer (latter where the image is from). 6 drives for media across the two is enough for me. I'll just upgrade drives/capacities as time passes.

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    I encode my DVDs to h.264 @ whatever their native bitrate reports, Blu-rays h.264 @ up to 15mbps and just got a 5950x so I can start encoding some of these 4k Blu-rays in cold storage to h.265 @ up to 45mbps (I'll use Staxrip to keep HDR/HDR10+, will keep orig rips of Dolby Vision titles and...

No reason to...
