    Is this only a problem with the new CX1?

    Good to know and yes on both. Wonder if I could get a browser up on one instead of the usual 1080p loops they run...

    LG 48CX

    Hey all, thinking of getting a CX1. Have a 3080 to drive it. While it is my gaming box, I do a ton of work on it and I need razor sharp text - not only 444 obviously, but good IPS-like sharp text. Is the CX/CX1 good for this? I know the contrast alone will help, but without being able to see one...

    Intel Announces a Hybrid Optane M.2 SSD

    900p/905ps are still ridiculous fast.Optane as storage freakin rocks and Samsung cannot touch them for low-qd random read performance. They are untouchable. I've got 3 and I dig 'em.

    LG Electronics to Release 8K OLED HDR TV Models in 2019 with VRR Support

    It’s [H]’s weekly 8K sucks and we’ll never need anything more than 1080p thread.

    m.2 905p optane

    4x-6x 4K low-qd random read performance is very noticeable on an OS drive. Opening apps, surfing, mail, Windows updates, general usage etc. this is where my 900ps shine. It is not noticeable for large block sequential workloads, whereas my 970 Pros are. 970’s sequential performance trumps the...

    m.2 905p optane

    ^^ Pretty freakin awesome random reads. Still pissed about Smeltdown patches. Kinda neutered my 3 900ps a bit. I can feel the difference from pre-patch days. Fighting the patches is kinda pointless at this point.

    m.2 905p optane

    If he’s got Smeltdown patches applied, they’ll be lower... 3DXPoint takes a massive hit.

    Japan OLED Shows Off Upcoming Monitors

    Is the RTX 2080 Ti a "grass greener on the other side" type scenario? Or are you enjoying it?

    Look at those 4K RT FPS... totally playable. Not 60 locked, but high 40s/50s. I didn’t even think I was going to be able to entertain RT @ 4K.

    Are HGST drives now discontinued?

    That sucks. HGST are/were the superior drive, hands down, for home NAS. My drive of choice for 10 years now. I can only hope WD took the HGST manufacturing and rolled it into their own behind the scenes. I really do not want a large NAS built out of WD Reds. Probably over 100 HGST NAS drives...

    8K Broadcasting Begins in Japan

    LOL, ok man. Or you just look at my 75 screen from 11ft and realize the chart is BS, along with every other person that knows it's BS. But keep believing something else.

    8K Broadcasting Begins in Japan

    Wow you’re dense. Have you ever heard of A/B testing? I can take a static still native 4K image and it’s duplicate, exact 1080p counterpart and flip them back and forth with arrow keys on my HTPC and guess what...voila! A/B testing plain as day. “Look at all that lost detail in the 1080p!” Not...

    8K Broadcasting Begins in Japan

    LOL - Nah, no placebo here. Been doing this far too long for any placebo in this regard. Nice try though! You can tell yourself what you are capable of seeing. You cannot tell someone else what they are capable of seeing. The chart is well known to be BS.

    Clueless much? RTX 2080 TI has an HDMI 20.b HDMI port and works flawlessly @ 4:4:4 2160p @ 60Hz.

    8K Broadcasting Begins in Japan

    “The Chart” is known to be BS, if you didn’t know. I sit 11ft from my 75 and can clearly, easily see 1080 vs 2160. Clear as day, and my eyesight isn’t perfect... That chart has been circling for years and is long debunked...

    Current 43" 4K options?

    ^^ Yes, agreed. I’d like some of the higher quality stuff to trickle down into the ~43 sizes. Better blacks, faster pixel response etc.

    Current 43" 4K options?

    I run X800D and X800E. Great TVs as monitors. E is faster and crisper (IPS), D is blacker (VA).

    LOL You could not be any more wrong about movies and TV content. Night and day difference from 1080p content to native UHD on my 75. I told you they would come in here!

    RTX 2080 Ti FE Escapes Testing by Dying After 8 Hours @ [H]

    No, why would I? I bought a 2080 TI for 2160p performance, not RT. It delivers on performance! I suppose I should at least experiment with RT, but I’m not expecting much.

    RTX 2080 Ti FE Escapes Testing by Dying After 8 Hours @ [H]

    The card has had hundreds of sleep/wake events. A few of those wakes resulted in a black screen until a driver update fixed it, then no more wake problems. Remember the FTW3 is a different beast.

    Upgraded to 9900k. Which 2080TI to get?

    Ive has my 2080 TI since they were first shipping pre-orders - no issues, other than the crappy PX1 software. As soon as I finally uninstalled PX1, I’ve been fine.

    RTX 2080 Ti FE Escapes Testing by Dying After 8 Hours @ [H]

    Update: FTW3 2080 TI still rock solid, rocking all the games @ 2160p 60fps. Smooth as butter. No fires, no nothing. It just works. What am I doing wrong? Should I have bought an FE?

    4k gaming is Dumb

    Once again, you’ve proven you have no idea what you’re talking about. It is clear you have a personal issue, either jealousy or some butthurt, against 2080 TIs and their owners. You provide no facts, just constant negativity. Meanwhile, we’re all enjoying our 2080 TIs as they are the absolute...

    4k gaming is Dumb

    Yeah, no. 1080 Ti sucks at 4K compared to my 2080 TI. No way good enough. And there's always a "next-gen", that's always a "better investment". PC parts are not investments. So much wrong with your post.

    I9 9900K / I7 8700K ?

    Yep - sounds about right. AVX has always been the killer. So many people run a -2 offset and think “what’s the problem?” Well, that’s easy. Syncing AVX with core multi @ 5.0 is tough. My 8086K spoiled me with 5.0/5.0 @ 1.34v, decent temps. Rock solid. I’m think I might have to back my 9900k down...
