    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    Amazing monitor. No dead/stuck pixels. No clouding. This thing is huge. Much bigger in person and heavy! Like most VA panels, there is some slight vignette in the corners, for those sensitive to that. Mine has a build month of February 2018. Doesn't beat my FORIS FG2421 in contrast, but still...

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    I also have one coming from Newegg. Should be here Monday. I have a lot of experience with TN, VA, IPS monitors. It will be interesting to compare this to my eizo foris fg2421 and acer predator xb271hu

    AMD Radeon R9 290X Video Card Review @ [H]

    He said nearly a year, so he is accurate enough. 780GTX didn't exist when the Titan came out. Lets be more clear. Specifically, the Titan was regarded as having awesome performance in the single GPU ring that rivaled dual-GPU cards. But for slightly cheaper and no compatibility issues that...

    AMD Radeon R9 290X Video Card Review @ [H]

    But there is a big "but" there. PCPER found and mentioned in their video about the 290X that it would reach 1Ghz, but the caveat was that it would rarely hold its frequency for a long time in the boost clock. This is different to how the 700 Series/Titan work. With those cards you often boost...

    AMD Radeon R9 290X Video Card Review @ [H]

    Timing does mean something. People who bought a Titan 10 months ago got their money's worth, IMHO. Sure, it is a lot of money, but that is the price you pay when there is no competition and you want the best product at the time. You will most likely see nVidia respond with more price drops...

    AMD Radeon R9 290X Video Card Review @ [H]

    Look, I was one who wasn't expecting much from AMD. And I was wrong, especially about the price. Kudos for them keeping the price so low, but being 10 months late no doubt hurt them as many people already upgraded. The 780/Titan still does beat the 290X sometimes however as many reviews have...

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    Well, I was wrong about the price. Impressive. Its a shame that it took AMD 9-10 months to respond and hopefully it will now bring prices down. The Titan still beat out the 290X in tests, but the heat and noise of the 290X is pretty concerning. PCPER's review...

    Easy explaination, which I also mentioned a long time ago. Company credit card. Yes, I have a Titan, no I don't work nVidia. Satisfied? Probably not.

    Nvidia G-Sync - A module to alleviate screen tearing

    Ideally I would like to see the tech used broadly, but I can understand where NVidia is coming from. They put the R&D into this so they want to capitalize on it. I can understand that in the beginning, but hopefully down the road it opens up.

    Official Deus Ex: Human Revolution thread

    One thing that always bugged me about this game was going into cover and out of cover. I was hoping they would change that, because doing it is so abrupt. It needs some kind of animation during the transition. Oh well.

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    Actually, it would appear many people here do care, because the way people spin it is that if you spend $1000 on a video card you are an idiot, and that is no more right than people who say people who only spend $500 or $600 on a video card aren't. What you spend your money on is totally...

    Batman: Arkham Origins

    No, they aren't just reusing stuff. They said in a video that they expanded the city from AC and changed some things. The added Christmas theme is layered throughout too in the game. The only thing they basically carried over was the battle/fighting system and only made slight changes from...

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    Oh really? You missed the numbers about frametime and latency in regards to G-Sync? Or all the reports about how it is built and how it works with the panels? You clearly haven't read everything. PCPER has an interesting video with new info about G-Sync just posted a couple days ago. There is...

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    No, I'm saying we have seen examples of G-Sync in use and the numbers to back it up. Yet we have not seen anything from Mantle.

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    I never said the Titan isn't expensive. I said you get what you pay for when the competition waits 9-10 months to release something new to compete with.

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    We've seen more from G-Sync than we have of the beloved Mantle. Even Johan Andersson said G-Sync is more important.

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    No, its not. Since AMD has nothing new for 9-10 months, of course they can price what they want. You need competition to match with new product to keep market prices down. You see it everywhere in other markets: mobile/tablet, etc. It is up for people to decide with their wallet what they want...

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    Not really. The people who own a Titan have enjoyed the best single GPU performance for 9 months before AMD had anything to respond with. The Titan is the fastest single GPU available. You get what you pay for. It will end up being faster than what AMD has to offer. History has shown if you want...

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    We'll see. I don't believe the price. But I do believe that when the card is in its max performance mode it is going to be loud as an airplane turbine.

    Official Deus Ex: Human Revolution thread

    I prefer the Director's Cut. The game is still great to play. The graphics are slightly improved, but don't expect a huge difference. They mostly just cleaned some things up and made it look more natural. The Director's Cut seems to have better encoded pre-rendered cutscenes. It also has the...

    Batman: Arkham Origins

    From my understanding Rocksteady has been involved with Origins in offering opinions and they also freely gave them their source material to work off of, which Montreal didn't really change much because why fix what isn't broken? We have to remember, Rocksteady themselves struck gold with...
