    It's really damning that none of the internet's talking heads are bringing up how AWFUL Nvidia's drivers have become

    Another new Nvidia driver released today and HDMI 2.1 Dolby Atmos dropout still hasn't been fixed. Auto HDR is still broken. They sell $2,000 video cards that don't work. No one talks about it because they want to keep getting free review samples because Nvidia WILL blackball you if you...

    High framerate and OLED

    OLED displays are supposed to be incredibly fast. We saw that news about the 500hz TN panel monitor. Is there any reason that these OLED screens can't already be 500hz besides manufacturers milking it and drip feeding people slow incremental improvements to maximize profits?

    Question about possible defective 5950x

    My computer used to occasionally reboot when it was idle or near idle (like if I left a playlist on in VLC overnight or something like that). Never happened during load or while playing a game. After I changed the idle power setting and disabled c states in the BIOS, it's been rock solid. Is it...

    Questions about HDMI 2.1 AVRs with the PC, max speaker support, Atmos, etc.

    Does anyone here have an Nvidia 3000 series or AMD 6800/6900XT video card with HDMI 2.1 support connected to an AVR with more than 7 speakers? If so, does it actually work? Even more specifically, is anyone with such a setup a programmer who has tested to see how many speakers various PC audio...

    A message from Hannibal Lecter about the 3000 series

    You know what you look like to me, with your pricey computer and your cheap LCD? You look like a rube. An F5-hammering, page refreshing rube, with a little taste. A big tower has given you enough space for a triple slot graphics card, but you're not more than one generation from owning a...

    This is a carbon copy of the 2000 series launch

    Overpriced, underperforming, rushed to market with bad quality control, broken drivers. The 3080 doesn't have enough VRAM, the 3090 underperforms. Fuckers couldn't even get G-Sync working at 120hz. The overclocked cards don't even work...

    Just want to extend a big fat middle finger to every major hardware review site/channel out there

    Dozens of 3080 reviews. Tons of shilling. Tons of "10GB VRAM is enough for everyone" propaganda. Not a single fucking review that tested HDMI 2.1 VRR. Not a single fucking review where someone got an HDMI 2.1 AVR and actually tested it with the 3080 to see if everything would work with...

    Pricing updates on some of the new monitors

    The new Samsung 32:9 5120x1440 monitor popped up on a Swedish site for about $1,700, and IT Show says that the 43" Asus FreeSync 4k/120hz monitor is going to be around $1,600. It's getting pricey out there.

    Question about 2080tis

    Regardless of the store I look at, the reviews of these cards are horrible. Everyone is saying they're DOA, they run too hot, they're unstable, etc. Serious question: is there even a good 2080ti card on the market that's stable and doesn't run hot?

    Mouse pad gaming table

    What do you guys think of this? I'm thinking about getting it, but I don't like the embarrassing stupid "RESPAWN" text in the middle of it, and it just came out, so there are basically no reviews. Is Respawn a good company? https://respawnproducts.com/products/respawn-1063-gaming-mouse-pad-table

    At this point, Nvidia deserves the "bad driver" scarlet letter as much as AMD

    The latest Nvidia drivers are a fucking trainwreck. G-Sync doesn't even work with them properly and tons of people are reporting constant driver crashes. It apparently tanked most people's performance in Apex Legends, too. Complete joke. AMD fried for less than this. I think Nvidia needs to...

    Does anyone else find this hilarious?

    They announce monitors in every fucking size except the one people want. Is it really that hard to release a 30" or 32" 4k 120hz+ screen? 55" is too fucking big. I can't get over how fucking dumb and tone deaf this industry is. Do they even talk to humans?

    Reports of 2080gtx ti cards are dying en masse

    https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/nvidia-rtx-2080-ti-graphics-cards-dying/ If this is true, what a complete JOKE this generation of Nvidia cards is. No HDMI 2.1, no significant performance increases, a shitty feature that still runs too slowly to be useful. Utter shit show.

    2080 Ti for $1000 confirmed, HDMI 2.1/VRR confirmed dead for another year

    PNY accidentally put up their Geforce 2080 page early, and we have confirmation that the next generation Nvidia cards don't support HDMI 2.1. Of course, we all expected this, since Nvidia are evil cocksuckers who want to sell their shitty G-Sync modules instead of do the right thing. So...

    And this is why 21:9 monitors are pretty much useless for gaming

    It's never going to be supported well. Worst case scenario, games won't even support the aspect ratio. Best case scenario, they'll support it, but in a half-assed way that's actually worse than 16:9. Overwatch 21:9 support has arrived*!!!!!111!!1!11!! Nope. Weird, non-standard aspect ratios...

    Question about OLED displays

    I'd appreciate it if an expert could clear something up for me. Why can't OLED monitors just flicker at like 500hz so that they don't have any motion blur? It would be fast enough to not notice the flicker, but enough flicker to eliminate the motion blur. OLED panels are incredibly fast...
