    Forza Horizon 5 (Mexico)

    Game seems fun so far! Is anyone else having problems with the adaptive eye exposure though? For example, when it is near dusk or morning time the inside of my car and the sky outside is almost black, but when I jump to an exterior view everything is properly lit. I did a google search and saw a...

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    It's for the foreseeable future from what I've been told. At my local computer shop the guys working there say they can take any 3000 series card and sell it for almost $1000 CDN more than the MSRP. They said it won't be till 2023 at the earliest before prices come down so the fact is if you...

    Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios

    Found the fix! Apparently the game has issues with Logitech G Hub and it needs to be disabled. After doing this it runs at a steady 144 FPS now. https://www.reddit.com/r/Back4Blood/comments/oz4qkv/mice_polling_rate_and_lagfreezing/

    Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios

    Is anyone else getting horrible stutter in this? When I go to look around, the game freezes for a half a second, plays smoothly for maybe a second, then freezes for half a second again. I am running the Gamepass version on low settings with DLSS set to performance on a Ryzen 3950X, 64GB ram...

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    Have been having fun with this on Game pass! Just wondering what the two red bars are on the lower right of the screen. I am assuming one is health, but what is the second bar?

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    Thanks for the update, Dr. Nut. I just recieved my externally powered USB hub, and even with this connected by devices still drop out under full load. I don't know where to go from here. AMD and Gigabyte both say my external USB devices are faulty, but I know this is not the case as they all...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    I have not done any manual overclocking with my 3950X and am running into these issues. I did try manually setting my SOC voltage to 1.2 using Ryzen Master and it was reading as 1.197 using HWInfo up from the 1.087 using the auto voltage. I still get the USB disconnects when full load is applied...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    It's very frustrating indeed. What I find very strange is I can load my CPU using OCCT and P95 and its fine, but I have some 3DSMax scenes that cause the USB disconnects instantly on render. I did the BIOS update, installed the latest chipset drivers, did the other suggested BIOS changes and the...

    Ryzen 3900X USB Reset Problem

    I am having the same issue with my 3950x / X570 combo. Here is my thread on the issue. I'll let you know if I find a fix. https://hardforum.com/threads/gigabyte-x570-aorus-master-usb-devices-disconnecting-under-load.2006790/

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master USB devices disconnecting under load

    Just an update: I installed the F32 Bios and had the same error. I ended up moving my external HD's from the red USB 3.1 ports to the black ones and my devices are no longer disconnecting and reconnecting. Seems so strange this problem just started out of nowhere.

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master USB devices disconnecting under load

    Hi all, this morning I started to have problems with my Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 / 3950X combo. Up until today my system has been rock solid, and I have not had any stability issues. Now whenever I go to do a rendering using 3DSMAX where all my CPU cores are loaded up, my external USB drives...

    Disappointed Pixel 4a 5G user. Can anyone recommend a non-Google phone that can match the Pixels photo prowess?

    I finally bit the bullet and upgraded my old Pixel 2 to a Pixel 4a 5G and am very underwhelmed. Although larger, the display is not as vibrant, the speakers are very muffled and vibrate the body of the phone badly, it powers off in -15 C (relatively balmy in Canada!) temperatures, and the camera...

    AMD is driving me crazy! Competitive gaming Nvidia Freestyle rant

    I don't think I could live without Freestyle either! In some games like Red Dead Redemption 2, the game looks so much better with some tweaking using the built in filters. Hopefully this is something AMD considers adding to their software suite as the 6000 series cards look great so far!

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I am having random crashes after the two latest updates. I thought I had found a fix by switching to the Nvidia 451 Creator Version of the drivers, but then had a couple of drop to desktops today while playing the game. Before the crashes, a 4624 and 4672 event are shown in event viewer for a...

    MicroProse is working on a multiplayer VR bomber

    Great choice in games! I had all these on my old Amiga 4000. Lord only knows how many hours I spent with Birds of Prey! The intro video was amazing for the time too!

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I know it likely sounds confusing. What I am trying to say is turn HDR on your "Windows HD Color Settings", and turn off the setting with the RDR 2 game. On my system, if I have the Vulkan renderer selected under display options in game, the HDR mode stays on when the game launches, and...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Even true HDR Game mode looked like bunk in my opinion. I know everyones system is different, but do try forcing HDR in Windows, disabling HDR in game, and selecting Vulkan render. I am just so blown away with how good it looks. Besides Forza 4 and Doom Eternal, it is some of the most impressive...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I finally picked this up from CDKeys for 50% off and am really enjoying playing it this weekend! I just wanted to share my experience with HDR with others on the forum. Like others, I found that even adjusting the paper white value and nits setting, the game just looked dull with HDR enabled in...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    With announcements of features like this, I've lost any interest I had in this game. All I wanted was a good single space combat game in the veign of the original Wing Commander, and now we have this mess. Oh well, at least I only donated $50.

    Is it possible to play audio from Android Tablet to PC speakers using Bluetooth (Win 10)?

    Woke up today to find that my kitten chewed through the audio connector I was using to connect my Samsung Galaxy tablet to the Realtek line in on my PC. Before I go out and buy a new cable, I was wondering if it possible to somehow stream the audio from my tablet to my computer speakers using...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Thank you! Yes, the RTX 2070 Super is roughly equivalent to the 1080 Ti. I'm hoping to run around 60 FPS if possible.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I've heard the performance on this is abysmal compared to the port of GTA V, and that even on the newest video cards the game still struggles to maintain a reasonable framerate with higher detail levels. Is there any point trying to run the game on a RTX 2070 Super at 2560x1440? Or will I be...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    Thanks, Zinn! This was actually on sale, so I got it for around $700 CDN or $530 US which I consider quite a great value for the quality of the display. Still super happy with it!

    1440p IPS screen with good contrast?

    Just wanted to post that I begrudgingly upgraded my trusty Achieva Shimian 27" glossy last weekend with an Gigabyte Aorus FI27-Q, and I could not be happier. I do graphics work and some gaming on the side, and the display is simply wonderful. I briefly tried an Asus Swift PG27Q monitor as well...

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    I'll take some screenshots of my BIOS setting this eve. I am confident my voltage is set to auto right now, but my idle temps are in the mid 40s. When doing my build, I tried to ensure the best possible airflow for my case which should be helping my temps as well. I do have to say I am in love...

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    Yes, that is what I've read. In my research for doing my build, I could not believe the difference that the IC makes. As I was populating all for DIM slots, I thought the Micron E would be the bets choice. Thanks for the Buildzoid info, I'll check it out this weekend and let you know how my...

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    I'm not sure. This is my first AMD chip since my XP1700 many moons ago so I'm not sure what the norm is. I am just really happy how everything runs out of the box with the default boosting. I think the only tweaking I am going to do is push my ram to 3600 speeds and call it good. On a side note...

    Ryzen Master on 3950X?

    I can't believe how cool mine runs. Using stock bios settings, I am holdings post of about 4. 25 - 4.3Ghz on all cores and my temps sit around 55 celcius. This is using a Noctua D15. I was also pleasantly surprised that I had zero issues running 4 x 16GB sticks of Micron E at their rated speeds...

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries announced!

    I was just going to say the same thing. Good lord does this game look awful on my RTX 2070. Mechwarrior Online looks light years better. Reshade or Freestyle does nothing to fix the blurry graphics. As soon as you are in motion, it's blur-o-rama. When you come to a dead stop, things sharpen up...

    Recommend an affordable 1440p 120+hz Variable Resfresh Screen?

    I just picked this up this afternoon and it is hands down the nicest monitor I have seen. So very happy with it. I had bought an Asus ROG PG279 before hand and the image quality difference between the two is night and day. Deep blacks, amazing panel uniformity, and no backlight bleed. G-Sync and...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    Found a gem! Went out monitor shopping today, and initially brought home a Asus ROG Swift PG279 to get it home and find the screen had a horrible gradient which went from clean white at the bottom, to a yellow at the top of the screen. Reading online it seemed like quality control is a bit of an...

    Looking for 4K display with non-dull image typical of matte displays

    Thanks for the reply. I've looked at our local computer stores, and I haven't found a single matte display that I like. They all just look so lifeless compared to a glossy display. I can't figure out why when TV and Smartphone manufacturers choose glossy displays for the superior image quality...
