    What if the crypto craze never ends?

    still predicting a crash to happen sometime at or before the end of summer. If a crash does not happen i would have to assume GPU production would ramp up. Why would amd nvidia not take the $$? This would take until 2022 most likely though

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    These PS games are ok but honestly a bit of a let down so far. So far GOW and Ratchet and Clank (ps4 and the new ps5 one) not as good as their originals. The PS5 controller is definitely awesome though. Not far into last of us so far but seems more like a movie with a few solid snake element...

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    Just need the ps5 (including ps4 games i never played) backlog to last until fall. Strongly suspect crypto hard crash by then.

    SSD HDD shortages due to crypto mining

    people smokin something in this thread. outside of the deep dark web and offshore gambling there's no real transactions being done in crypto. even in "countries with failing fiat" crypto transactions are minutia and ephemeral. crypto will continue in this state until one of the altcoins that...

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    the new strobed 240+ LCDs that give CRT motion unfortunately have really terrible black levels (see oculus quest 2). CX came out with a ton of bugs. OLEDs with functional BFI at 240hz+ would be nice, can only hope it happens next few years.

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    I think you guys are missing the point that it's a collectible now. Yes the average joe bloe shouldn't go out and buy an FW900 for over $500ish expecting it to be some kind of better value or holy grail compared to current tech (it's the bestALLaround but OLED better blacks etc, strobed 360hz...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yes exclusives for PS5 and also the controllers are better (well supposedly) + I can use the controllers for PC games. Xbox also just has a stupid name and aesthetics. Also the whole xbox one disc resale restrictions fiasco still lingers in some minds. Both sold out but PS5 anecdotally harder...

    Ryzen 5 5600X At Microcenter $299

    Anyone else in the boat where I don't really feel like upgrading CPU until i can upgrade GPU (ie waiting to get an ampere or big navi before getting new ryzen)?

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    Since when is Disney+ touted as a high quality? Amazon 4k Firestick plays shows like the expanse pretty decently if your internet is fast. HTPC with eARC (or cloned hdmi 2.1 out) to high quality AVR can produce what a quality 4k UHD blu-ray player can

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    ive owned both FW900 and LGCX. Something tells me youve owned neither. they are both bit overrated. plasma relatively underrated. without bfi or strobing, interpolation barely makes motion on OLED just passable on low frame rate content. if I could get high end plasma with 1:1 pulldown i...

    Sony GDM-FW900 - NIB

    Need 240-360hz (with content that can make use of it) for OLED to render them obsolete. 144hz doesnt cut it (but gets closish)

    What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'?

    i mean i bought AMD back in march at 37. Id say the stock is doing pretty well. Paying scalpers for ampere is also out of laziness just trying to check off boxes on to do lists. For me I've been tempted because ever since buying a 65CX OLED i've moved my office into the living room working off...

    GPU Prices dropping?

    I wear my grandpas clothes and melt snow to save water. So i can buy a 3090. But honestly though big reason for me for upgrading right now is hdmi 2.1. Doesnt matter how much nitro you put in your 67 chevy rig it doesnt do 10bit 120hz rgb at 4k at any speed

    GPU Prices dropping?

    Not to sound antagonistic but im genuinely curious- you think the vaccines will not work and you think covid will have the same ability to mutate as the flu despite not having a segmented genome. In a world where science now even has a stop gap pseudo-vaccine for HIV. And that will keep gpu...

    GPU Prices dropping?

    Is there some secret knowledge you have that lets you say something so strikingly opposite to common sense? In other news can someone recommend me a 3090 with two hdmi 2.1 outs since that seems to be the only thing purchasable. Don't care about price as long as not a scalp.

    0ms response time. is it possible?!??

    Going below 1-3ms on sample and hold tech without strobing actually deteriorates quality until higher refresh rates are used. The things we know now.

    (UPDATED) Microsoft walks back decision to double price of Xbox Live Gold subscriptions

    I remember like 10ish years ago I bought a Wii with a bunch of games used and resold it all for more than I bought it 6 months later because some of the games had already achieved collectible value. In general 5 seconds of effort and patience makes console gaming way more affordable than the...

    Avoid any product offered by Synchrony Bank (except for their stock since they even figured out how to scam Walmart). They can just close your account whenever they want and cancel any rewards that you have in it. I'd pay scalpers well before dealing with Synchrony.
