    Upgrade to Alienware 27" 240hz or buy another Dell 2716dgr?

    Nice monitor. So i saw this one is 700 bucks or so. They also have a cheaper model for 300 and some change. I only scanned the pages quickly. What's the main difference?

    9900KS versus 5960X in Time Spy/3DMark (Paired with a 2080 Ti FE)

    I think x99 is probably my last hedt to be honest. I just don’t see a need anymore. I’m not going to run sli anymore and I don’t run anything that exotic that requires a ton of pcie lanes/bandwidth so ya. I mainly only game on my main systems so it’s geared to that end. Latest rumors suggest...

    9900KS versus 5960X in Time Spy/3DMark (Paired with a 2080 Ti FE)

    No doubt that Chip is sweet. Tbh of new NVIDIA gpu’s were out in the wild I would have pulled the trigger already. For me thought without the gpu upgrade along with new cpu mb ram etc I don’t feel I’m getting as much shelf life out of my platform. Since that chipset is gonna be eol soon. I...

    9900KS versus 5960X in Time Spy/3DMark (Paired with a 2080 Ti FE)

    9900ks runs all core 5ghz out of the box. You lowered it to 4ghz? Am I understanding correctly? Why not run real world comparison where your 4ghz oc system goes against the 5ghz new system and then see where the difference lies? I mean you aren’t gonna run the new chip at 4ghz are you? I have...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    You may be right about the silicon economics and if you are they have a problem long term. Sure they’ll still sell cards to high end enthusiasts that will pay almost what ever they charge but that's a much smaller market than they want or need. We’ll see I guess.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    If they had made that a titan wouldn’t people have expected it to be more powerful than it was then? It was barely worthy of the ti moniker as it is. Calling it a titan at that level of performance doesn’t really help it imo. Just makes it worse. The truth is the card doesn’t offer enough...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Nvidia wants to sell as many cards as possible across their whole lineup. They are going to make the value vs performance vs cost this time better and more in line with how the 1080ti was. They know they have to do that to attract as many customers as possible. Where exactly it's gonna fall I...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Yes glad they have had such a useful shelf life and I got my money's worth out of them for sure. That said it does not change the fact that the 2080ti was way way over priced and stil is for what you get. No way a flagship enthusiast card should run 1000-1200 each. No sorry, As far as being let...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I stand corrected. You prompted me to look through my emails. Apparently I didn't buy my 1080ti's from Nvidia I bought from bestbuy. They were FE's and I bought 2 and you're correct they were not 550 each. I paid 1399.98 for 2. Which is 700.00 each. My bad. I think I had 550 each in mind because...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    You take the 1080ti performance which on launch day I bought two. Two fe cards direct from Nvidia. Paid off I remember correctly 550 each. So running sli for 1100. Take one 2080ti which isn’t an upgrade since I would need two and you had 2400 at launch. Fuck it say 2000 which wasn’t doable for...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    I agree the game overall is very good imo. I haven't liked a COD this much since the OG COD4 MW.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    To be honest I haven’t tried the sp yet. So my experience is mp only. My issue was definitely related to my sli being enabled at all. Even though the game only uses one card. For some reason the profile for the game was set to run sli and I couldn’t change it to single card only in the driver...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    So after trying evrything I finally figured out the problem. I run SLI 1080ti's and since the game only uses one card I tried last night and this morning multiple times in the driver profile to use only one card just in case sli was casuing an issue but it wouldn't me for some reason. I have...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    On a side note I really can’t play the game. It momentarily freezes and stutters in mp every few secs. This did not happen in the beta. Latest drivers installed. I’ve tried turning off all over lays and background processes. Changed prices affinity etc no help. It’s really starting to piss me...

    Where is 9900KS?

    Forum Nazi's out in force I guess. Wasted posts lol. Ok buddy. Some people need to get out more.

    Where is 9900KS?

    Cause I felt like guessing and wasn't thinking of looking it up at that particular moment. That ok with you my brother? Did it cost you something? /Curious.

    Where is 9900KS?

    BTW. I'm guessing the 9900 x is probably a1200 dollar cpu. If I'm guessing right?

    Where is 9900KS?

    I think I got them confused. Ya I thought that was the 10 core cpu. So just a better binned 9900k then I guess? Guaranteed boost all core 5ghz? They really need a new higher core count flagship cpu. Wtf Intel. Asleep at the switch while and is moving along it seems.
  21. S

    Where is 9900KS?

    It's a 9900k on steroids with more cores and a lil higher boost clocks I believe. I'm interested in doing a new build around this cpu as well. So I'm waiting till fall.

    Dell Alienware 34" 120hz 21:9 G-Sync monitor $719.99

    Been using this monitor since last years black friday sale and it's been great. A year now and so far so good. No regrets what so ever.

    Got win 10 stutter?

    I only run one at a time usually. Why run them all the time since you arent using one of their games all the time. Minimizes chance for bs imo.

    Nvidia drivers 416.94

    I'm gonna take a stab in the dark here and say still no SLI support for bfv in these drivers. Right?

    Nvidia drivers 416.81

    I’ve been using SLI like a lot of people in this forum over the years for a very long time. For the most part and most games that I care about which are most AAA games it has worked pretty good overall. There are some games that are problematic of course. However frostbite is usually not one of...

    Nvidia drivers 416.81

    Your wrong. Mgpu works great in Most AAA games. This engine handles SLI very well if they just put in the effort to get it to work. My scolding is hardly misplaced. Nvidia charges a fuck ton of money for their shit thus I expect it to work. Guess I'm crazy.

    Battlefield V

    No SLI support go figure. Yes running latest drivers that came out today. Complete bs. Frostbite can do sli just fine but obviously it wasn't a priority for Dice.

    Nvidia drivers 416.81

    Pretty disgraceful that there is shitty/no SLI support in this game day 1. This is frostbite and is very capable of running very good SLI scaling yet it's garbage in their AAA brand new showcase game? So I have to fuck with SLI bits now and probably deal with some aspect of flickering or bugs as...

    SLI and Gsync performance craters when run together.

    Ok so this is a subject I've been following for a very long time on the Nvidia forums on and off hoping Nvidia would fix the problem and to date they have not. So when I saw this article on extremetech I thought wow finally someone bringing this issue to light. I see the issue in certain games...

    Battlefield V

    I'm kind of enjoying it but it doesn't feel like WW2 era for some reason. I can't put my finger on it exactly but something seems off about the set pieces for this period. I mean BF 1942 you knew was WW2 era Cod1/2 etc you knew were WW2 era but this? Wtf? I don't get it. What do you guys think...

    How do you feel about Nvidia pricing on the new RTX video cards?

    I agree with this. For me though, it isn't a question of affordability in all honesty. I'm not boasting or bragging but I can easily afford 2 of these suckers if I wanted too. That said, affordability is not the point, the point is justifiability in my head. I can't wrap my head around the idea...

    Leaked: 2080Ti FE 39% faster than 1080Ti FE on average

    Even if they do the DLSS, which would be great, it's still way to much for a worth upgrade in terms of performance for the money over a 1080TI. If the 2080TI was priced where the 2080 is then I would sell my 2 1080TI's get 2 2080TI's. That makes no sense to me at a 1200 price point. Let alone at...

    Nvidia Dir. of Technical Marketing Tom Peterson says 1080 Ti to 2080 Ti 35-45% performance gain

    I hear ya and that sounds great if true but not for 1200 a piece. That's not for me. I simply don't see the value the at that price point. RT looks great and when we can play alot of games with a real resolution at high fps with RT on I'll be a player. Not going back to 1080P at 60 fps just for...

    Nvidia Dir. of Technical Marketing Tom Peterson says 1080 Ti to 2080 Ti 35-45% performance gain

    Yes it makes sense. Since those of us on 1080ti's really have no reason to upgrade to a 2080. The only upgrade path for me is two 2080ti's and that is out of the fucking question for 2400 kissmyassnvidia dollars. Heh. Not happening. I simply cannot justify that type of money for two gpu's no...

    First RTX 2080 Benchmarks Hit the Web with DLSS

    This sounds great but we need a real review from Kyle. So those of us running SLI 1080TI's need to get 2 2080TI's to make it worthwhile? So ya 2400 bucks to make this a worthy upgrade. That's assuming this metric is true where by one 2080TI is roughly equal to 2 1080TI's SLI. That's insane. New...

    Alienware AW3418DW 34" Ultrawide

    I was running a different panel before this one and noticed the loss of micro stutter on this system when moving from 980's SLI/tri SLI. Then got 2 it's with hb bridge and noticed a big improvement as far as micro stutter and frame pacing goes over the 980's. Now this is my first gsync Panel and...

    Alienware AW3418DW 34" Ultrawide

    This is pretty much on point. Micro stutter isn't a thing since moving to 1080ti's with the hb bridge last year.

    Are you guys still buying Intel CPU's inspite of Meltdown/Spectre ?

    To me if I had to build new or something broke then I would but parts but not unless there was no choice. I see no reason to pay to same money for even 5% less performance than was originally intended. We barley hey gains in the cpu space as it is and now we're talking losing 5-10 like they are...
