    The state of VR technology

    VR technology is stagnating because Oculus has cut the legs out of the market with the Oculus quest 2. For its price point, it blows away competitive products from a user experience standpoint, and I am fairly certain that FB is selling them at a loss. Additionally, the lack of AAA game...

    Cyberpunk is Available - Lets share how your GPU/CPU is performing

    This is absolutely true, both 460.89 and 460.79 introduced an issue with elevated blacks in HDR. Games look like shit right now with it on for me. I am playing on 457.51 right now. To your point about cyberpunk specific HDR issues, from what I can tell they are using some sort of faux hdr...

    Nvidia CEO says buying a Gpu without raytracing is crazy...

    Except when they release the same product(1080ti) with rtx effects tacked on(2080) and then mark it up considerably higher than the card its replacing on launch. I get that they had a lack of competition for a while but that sort of sleazy behavior tends to bite them in the ass when competition...

    2080 Ti and/or Titan RTX BLACK coming soon...

    Nvidia is going to get a big kick in the nuts from reality when amd high end gpus come out next year, just look at the de-pantsing they are doing to Intel in the server market with rome. If you don't need a card today, do yourself a favor and wait till next year, your wallet will thank you.

    Uplay DLC purchases don't work with steam games

    More importantly in regards to steam, allowing cross activation opens up big loopholes to avoid the transaction fee associated with steam purchases. A publisher could sell the game client on steam for a dollar then the rest of the game as a $59 DLC on their store.

    What games do you have preordered?

    Nothing pre-ordered, I usually can find it the week of its release on sale for ~25% off and I'm not really motivated by pre-order bonuses anymore so other than blindly showing faith in a dev I don't see the point, I do Kickstart projects I am enthused about.

    When is a 2080ti refresh due to hit market?

    Nvidia has very little reason to do a refresh on the 2080ti unless the 2080 super gets dangerously close in performance. Even so they might just do a price cut to $999 or something still ludicrous.

    Looking to rebuild audio system, seeking advice

    I agree on yamaha being fucking awesome. Unlike other brands that tend to lean toward home theater or music at the exclusion of the other, the yamahas do both equally well. Also pro tip, check accessories4less.com, you can score a sweet deal on a refurb receiver. I picked up an aventage rx-a2060...

    First, your warranty comment is only for certain brands of video cards. Second, fuck yeah I want to save 25% on nearly identical performance, DLSS be damned. Sure you are going to see some flagship games get paid by nvidia to support it, but you are really a fool if you think that's going to...

    Monoprice Air Motion Cinema 5 Bookshelf Speaker $100 (DEAD)

    I am not making an argument that you can do it cheaper on the low end. You are absolutely right on that and I never said otherwise. I was talking more about the high end and that you can do champaign on a beer budget if you willing to diy.

    That's why it pays to build your own in the long run. Now every 15 or 20 years you generally have to refoam the woofers but that's about it. Regarding AMT tweeters, they are basically the best you can get, their only real downside is cost and efficiency. They generally are not very efficient...

    TR 1950X $499 at Newegg

    If you are using it for only those purposes the 9900k is going to be the better buy. The 1950x is fine for gaming but it's more comperable to a midrange cpu in performance. For streaming the extra cores aren't going to help you much there either. It is a great buy if you want to do some more...

    Toyota Has a Curious Justification for Not Selling Any EVs

    You need to do some more research on the efficiency of electric motors, when your heater can affect your mileage up to 40% on a pure ev, yeah I'd say the motors are plenty efficient enough. Now when it comes to energy density in the battery pack, yeah there is plenty of room for improvement, but...

    Tesla Launches New Supercharger with 1,000 MPH Charging, Better Efficiency, and More

    You are still dumping a metric Fuckton of energy into objects that are not 100% efficient at storing it. Even with the battery packs coolant system engaged I still would imagine you are going to be doing some damage if you do it regularly. I am not poo-pooing progress here but Tesla tends to...

    I have my q6fn wall mounted, my head is around 4-5 feet from the tv. When you get inside of 4ft you start to see color shift around the periphery if you look at a solid colored background, that's something unavoidable with a VA panel this big. I would highly recommend wall mounting as the TV...

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing RTX 2060 Performance @ [H]

    I don't agree with you at all about it running fine but then again I never clarified how I define that. For the 2080ti rtx should be able to hit 4k@60fps or 1440p@120fps. For the 2060 their performance target should be 1080p 60fps. Less than that is a step backward from previous gen card...

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing RTX 2060 Performance @ [H]

    Maybe nvidia shouldn't have made bf5 their flagship title featuring the technology then, or you know... waited till they had hardware that could pull it off. You bring up a good point though, I probably would have wanted to feature the tech on a game where raw fps is not so important instead.

    Anthem Is a Buggy Mess

    This is not true anymore, look at the division or sea of thieves they had rough starts but managed to recover. I do think it's much much more difficult now for the game to be an ultimate success but not impossible, particularly if they you know... Fix it.

    I run sli 1080tis so 4k@60hz for most games, 1440p@120hz for anything twitchy or shooty. It's absolutely a game changer and one of the most bang for your buck improvements to your gaming experience provided your rig is beefy enough to drive it. A great example is a game like Diablo 3, on a...

    I am sure I am one of the outliers, but part of my reason to upgrade to the q6fn was my Samsung ku6300 was getting image retention. Was really wierd, I could see my desktop icons burned into the screen when warm colors like red and orange were solid on the screen.

    US Bans Cargo Shipments of Lithium-Ion Batteries on Passenger Planes

    This does not effect you in any way. Again they are talking about commercial battery shipments not checked bags. If I recall though you aren't supposed to be putting li-on batteries in your checked bag anyway, those go in your carry on.

    Mimicking RTX Global Illumination with Traditional Graphics Techniques

    It's not ignorance they launched the technology too early, they should have either kept their card pricing in line with the prior gen(or at least keep the hike low enough to not make it seem like you are moving every card up in price brackets) or waited until the hardware and tech was strong...

    Post Release Reviews of Anthem are Still Mixed

    The game just feels like a late stage beta. There are so many pathways in Fort tarsis that go nowhere, indicating content was cut/dlc walled and their loot system seems like it was contrived and executed in that short period between their tech betas and release. Why does it take like 2...

    I picked up a refurbed 55" q6fn 2 weeks ago for $699 from microcenter. This thing is incredible. My only complaint is that freesync over hdmi doesn't work with nvidia. I run it in 1440p @120hz for shooters and 4k@60+hdr for everything else. I upgraded from a ku6300. One of the biggest impact...
