Starts in a few hours.
This is the first world championship that will be broadcast in virtual reality. Watch Magnus Carlsen take on Sergey Karjakin in a stereoscopic live video using Google Cardboard or any other VR device.
A rather polished puzzle game that works well on HTC Vive. Pointing laser on the vive controller can be a bit awkward to use, but its a fun change from the more active games. I would recommend using 1.5 SS in HTC Vive config file if possible.
I just ordered a MSI GTX 780 Gaming for my HTPC to replace an aging (but still working great) 5870 PCS+. Needed something new and shiny.
Getting a bit buyers remorse now even though I don't get the card before tomorrow. I had a GTX 570 Phantom, which was nice and quiet, but really sucked for...
Just a heads up. I didn't catch it until now, so maybe others haven't either. :)
I found it on the support page @ Samsung of my screen (S27A950D), so you might find similar on your SA models support page.
Get it while its hot:
AMD Catalyst 11.10 Preview driver:
Improves performance in Battlefield 3 Open Beta release for both non-Anti-Aliasing, and application enabled Anti-Aliasing cases on the AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 Series for single GPU configurations
Saw this on THG and were pretty intrigued by it:
It obviously doesn't work with all titles (like SSAA), but when it first works it looks great it seems. Finally it made sense to enable AA in Starcraft 2...

Came over this thread at B3D that was interesting:
We all might remember Batman AA, which was a postergame for Nvidia regarding GPU accelerated PhysX and where CPU physx was broken, so regardless if you ran 1280x1024 or 2560x1600, you got the...
Found this on Rage3d. Anyone here tried this yet?:
"currently we have no certificate, to sign the driver files, so you have to
vista/win7 with "F8"
//and select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
F8... or no go.
Seems like there is a leak of Catalyst 10.5 here:
Edit: Its a beta or might even be an alpha, so it might not be 100% stable. Forgot to put that in the OP, but the thread its pointing to have it though. :)
I don't know how correct this is, since Evergreen is not supposed to be out before 2010. The interesting point here is "Lynx/Llano", where a 4 core CPU is combined with a GPU making an APU. :D This is something many have been waiting for, after AMD bought ATI. Hopefully Llano will be early as...
As some might recall, Ian McNaughton managed to enable in-game AA in Batman for ATI users by changing vendor-id over to Nvidia. Turns out it was a vendor block from Nvidia preventing this and Nvidia legally refused Eidos to remove the vendor block at first. Now it seems this have changed and a...
Now, this is physics that I can fullheartedly support!!! :D It doesn't force me to by any kind of hardware and is just middleware.
Will we see an extra resolution in future GFX card reviews now that triplehead capabilities becomes mainstream? Now we have 2560x1600 as maximum, but it would be interesting to see how they perform in triplehead. 3X 1680x1050 (TH2G with Nvidia cards, but hopefully they'll make some Eyefinity of...
I've had a now a wonderful stable time with 4870x2 and catalyst. No crashes and bugs were minor and far between (like water bug on COD5).
9.8, though stable otherwise, have a tendency to crash steam games (all I tested with so far). If I change resolution or similar, it will crash. Only remedy...
I'm not here to tout AMD/ATI's horn, but I welcome DX10.1.
It looks like more DX10.1 games are coming besides Diablo 3 and the rest from Blizzard, Sega and EA. Valve might be thrown into the game. Perhaps we even get DX10.1 support for older titles as well? :cool:
An article 1.july from...
[H] had a nice review, but didn't test this. For me, its more groundbreaking and interesting then how much AA and AF the cards can yeild on chosen resolutions.
Did anyone try this? Does it work properly?
Anyone knows how to turn this feature off? I checked in the Vista power management and under ATI Powerplay it doesn't reveal any settings. Nowhere in CCC either. I've noticed that it kicks in and out in games and regulates the frequencies of the GPU up and down. Annoying! I want to run full...
I thought I'd make this post to inform those who are worried about color accuracy and wonder why they should pay price premium for certain types of display.
You might have seen these pictures on Behardware and other review sites:
Maybe you have even based your...
Hi all! Long time lurker in this great forum and I wondered if you could help me out with something. :)
I have for long been unhappy with the industry standard of measuring viewing angles on LCD's (worthless standard IMHO).
On my surf on the internet, I encountered this thread.
