    Apple leaks M1 Max Duo, and M1 Ultra

    How can this even be determined since presumably no one but AMD has access to them at this point? Are you just guessing or am I missing something?

    Battlefield 2042

    Is the gameplay loop fun? How is the gunplay? Does it play like BFV from a gunplay mechanics standpoint? I really enjoyed the gameplay of BFV, all other issues aside, but I hear they removed some of the movement changes they made in BFV with 2042, and that's a disappointment.

    Battlefield 2042

    I mean, I just want to know objectively if the game is good or not. But it's hard to find any unbiased opinion.

    Battlefield 2042

    I used to think that until they shit on BFV repeatedly with the weapon rebalancing nerfs they pushed twice, the first time right before the entire studio took a 6 week Christmas vacation leaving us with a version of the game no one wanted for that entire duration. Then they abandoned it and left...

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    This is all true, but we're discussing the value of the product to you as the consumer not what the costs are behind the product. And IMO time is the most valuable resource anyway.

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    It's a perfectly relevant comparison. They are both entertainment products. It's also not like you wouldn't know the approximate length of a game, assuming you read a review of the product first. People can assess the value for themselves. I don't think $8.99 for a 2 hour original game is...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    I mean, that's literally what most players asked for, so... yeah lol. It's similar to how they did the Starcraft remaster which was critically acclaimed.

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    As another poster stated, it is literally the original D2 client. They added some QoL fixes like a large shared stash, auto-gold pickup, some bug fixes from the original, but otherwise it is the same game. You can even turn off the renderer and play with the original graphics engine at any time...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    It is the original game code, you can literally toggle between Legacy and Modern modes in real time. The only new stuff is some QoL fixes and the graphics renderer. They removed TCP/IP, so the "legacy" offline MP won't work. So it does have offline mode.... just not offline MP.

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    It always cracks me up how boomer this forum is considering it's a tech forum. By far the biggest problem with D2 was rampant cheating. They had to remove the archaic TCP/IP connectivity and add a more modern netplay framework to improve the security of the game to address this. Now we get...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    Why are you positioning "consumers value game security over offline play" as a negative here? Most people have good internet and don't care if the game is "fully online". This really shouldn't be that surprising. Personally, I've had stable, reliable internet for like 16 years now. Yes, the...

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    I guess it's possible but it's rare. When I was in HS 20 years ago the only options were French or Spanish, both of which made sense living in South Florida.

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    I didn't read the entire thread because there's already 4 pages but ... this looks like Windows 10 with centered icons in the start bar. Frankly as an Ultrawide 21:9 user, that wouldn't be a bad thing for me. In the sourced Verge article it says you can still left align the icons and start menu...

    Battlefield 2042 live reveal today

    None of the maps are Metro style so far from what has been shared. The maps are all very large. I'm sure there will be some CQC style maps because some people enjoy that, but most BF games I've played in aren't as chaotic as the footage shown here. They show that in the reveal because it's exciting.

    Xe looking EXTREAMLY under welming

    I don't know why anyone would expect a first generation graphics product by a company that hasn't built a discrete GPU in decades to knock it out of the park. These things take time to get right even with the best leadership. It's hard to gauge Raja since AMD didn't have the budget to really let...

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    This is naive. The USD is backed by the entire government and economy of the United States, and is the pre-eminent currency globally for trade. "Crypto" as it is now will never replace the US dollar, as bitcoin has absolutely nothing to back it that it makes it inherently valuable. More than...

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    I'm not ignoring it. 1) Ethereum hasn't switched yet. 2) There are still ASIC farms mining bitcoin and those consume a lot of power. RE: the perceived benefits of crypto, I have yet to see anyone explain why these benefits are inherent to crypto in particular. You could build a "lean, green...

    They were also considerably less expensive to produce, both in terms of R&D and also manufacturing costs. We've long been past the point where die shrinks pay for themselves.

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    That's an interesting take on what he said. But no, it has nothing to do with power companies. Mining requires electricity and a lot of the electricity produced to power mining - especially in China where there are massive BTC and other mining farms powered via coal plants - generates...

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    I would honestly argue that crypto isn't even an asset. Oil has intrinsic value. Crypto does not. And yes, stock markets can be volatile, but people invest in them because historically they have shown long term stable growth.

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    We're on bubble #3 or #4 now. That's one of the problems with the entire premise, the volatility. I'm not parking money in something that swings 20-50% in valuation frequently.

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    Cryptocurrency is a cancer. I can't wait for this to all crash down again. It's not investing, it's gambling. It's a huge waste of resources and electricity. Global bitcoin mining uses more power than many smaller nations, like Norway or Ecuador. What is the point?

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    Which is why I said ideally, totally understand why some people might have other uses. I have to say though, it pains me to think about using a mechanical drive as a boot drive, lol.

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    CSM is a legacy feature, but not sure why it specifically needs to be disabled. Ideally, everyone should be using UEFI.

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    At this time no. I'm not sure if it's important for those use cases, but in any case, it's only enabled on a game by game basis at the moment, and I don't think it's enabled for Adobe products.

    Yeah, agreed. BIOS notes are often too vague, unfortunately.

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    Yes, they do. I have an MSI MEG X570 Ace and ReBAR Support is enabled. Nope, works for NVIDIA too, the BIOS option is simply "Enable ReBAR Support", it's not AMD specific.

    That's odd. My personal system is stable at 3800MHz / 1900 FCLK as well, both before and after the release. Have you tried slightly bumping voltages to the SOC?

    Does it make any actual difference? The drivers were just installed via GeForce Experience and I haven't had any issues with them.

    Has your motherboard been updated to a BIOS that supports it?
