    AMD’s Radeon Vulkan Drivers Add Support for Ray Tracing on Older GCN GPUs

    I played Control on my 1080Ti with RT on...at 720p...frame rate was decent enough though and the graphics are quite good. Something like a 7970 even I see getting destroyed.

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    Man, I haven't even used Newegg in like 10 years. Once they started doing that marketplace type shit mixed with their other issues over the years I just simply gave up on them.

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Brand New Cherry Flavor was pretty damn good. Netflix is doing fine with their programming if you actually look.

    Bitcoin miners leave China for US

    In all fairness you probably should have upgraded quite a while ago. I was just thinking yesterday if a 7970 would still be enough to game these days considering how old it is so a 7750? Where you actually planning on upgrading this generation in the first place??

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Nerfs Not Only Ethereum Hash Rate But Also Other Coin Algorithms

    What the fuck happened to us wanting this so we could get reasonably priced and available GPU's again? All the comments here are just blasting this as if something doesn't need to be done about the GPU market.

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    I certainly understand what you're saying. Even with a game like Horizon Forbidden West with all it's detail and years of "water tech" being created I STILL can't just go grab a handful of sand. I still can't scoop a cup of water out of a lake. For all our realism in "visuals" the actual...

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    If this, along with lens flare, isn't the most annoying and fucking STUPID "graphical effect" I've ever seen in games I don't know what is. What's the fucking OBSESSION developers have with making games look like we're viewing them through a camera lens from the 1930's???

    Did.... did AMD just extend the life of my 1080ti by enabling FSR?

    Sure it isn't, but for me it's still damn good enough. Only REAL issue's I even noticed in Cyberpunk (3440x1440p running on "Performance" DLSS mode at that!) was that objects behind chain link fences didn't always look right but that, or any other minor thing I might be forgetting, doesn't...

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    I think the nanite stuff is cool but, like, isn't it just more mainstream tessellation or is there actual tech behind it outside of "hardware is good enough to do crazy tessellation now"? Still looks good don't get me wrong but it still just seems like they're using tessellation more than other...

    Bitcoin crumbles below $40,000 on China crypto warning

    Exactly. I've never invested in anything in my life but decided to dump a few hundred in Doge a few weeks back. I'm DEFINITELY down a few but, meh, fuck it. Maybe it'll play out, maybe it won't. It's been long enough that the money I have in it doesn't really matter either so I'm just riding the...

    GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Hits Overseas Market at Objectionable Prices

    What resolution are you running? On my 2080Ti I can run Metro EEE at 3440x1440p with any DLSS setting (I prefer Performance) at max graphics settings and haven't seen frames under 60 so far...most of the time the game runs 100+! Very well optimized for being fully ray-traced.

    Doge coin skyrocketed .40 cents should I buy some?

    I say buy a little here and there...what's it hurt? I just put $100 into Doge...it's just $100. If I lose it oh well, if I don't who knows what it could turn into. Buy me a new car in a few months?

    GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Hits Overseas Market at Objectionable Prices

    I've luckily got a 2080Ti already so while not as nice as a 3xxx series it's still plenty and I don't mind waiting for a new GPU.

    Doom Eternal has added paid skins, despite previous assurances it wouldn’t

    I don't know about anyone else but I personally thought this game was fucking trash. Doom 2016 was definitely a departure from 3, obviously. But from 2016 to Eternal had me just scratching my head the entire time. What's all this lore bullshit no one has ever cared about? Why is it all cartoony...

    Next Valve Index VR headset may be wireless

    So the Index is, what, one of the most expensive VR headsets and it's number THREE? When the hell has there even been enough Index stock to make it the THIRD highest used headset??? I mean, I'm not saying that number is wrong but it's certainly odd...or is it just me?

    Next Valve Index VR headset may be wireless

    Inside out tracking isn't bad in a lot of instances but I can't help but notice how bad it can be in certain games. Playing something like Blade and Sorcery has me constantly losing tracking as I keep moving around fast and making wide swinging motions. So I'm OK with inside out but there...

    I gotta brag/vent to someone that knows what I'm talking about.

    Doing a online tone generator (https://www.szynalski.com/tone-generator/) the Minivee at moderate levels (about 55%, loud but not TOO loud) can be heard and slightly felt at 20Hz, keep in mind I have two so I'm sure it helps. It's definitely "audible" and present. 21Hz and 22Hz have noticeable...

    I gotta brag/vent to someone that knows what I'm talking about.

    A lot of it really is luck though and just looking. It's like the lottery...you're never going to win if you don't even play the game, ya know? So for me I'm on Facebook Marketplace and OfferUp and others at least once a day just to look for some common items I'm interested in (Definitive...

    Yeah they're beasts...how were the isolation pads? I've been highly considering something like them because these things like to move a lot of my stuff around... Highly rated subs for sure, highly sought after. Why my neighbors just tossed it out I've no idea, I thought about inquiring but...

    Nah, they're rubber and look and feel just fine. 10 years really isn't that long. I mean I get what he's saying but yeah, looking stuff like this up ain't nothing changed really. This system is still just as good now as it was then, especially these subbbbbs! Oh for sure, DAC's and digital...

    I gotta brag/vent to someone that knows what I'm talking about.

    I'd agree with the analogy if speaker tech had changed that much in 10 years. Sure, there is newer but not necessarily better or really improved. These speakers are still, what I'd consider to be, top of the line in their price brackets and unlike a car really don't degrade or wear down in the...

    Anandtech and Gamers Nexus 11700k Reviews

    So I have to say I was impressed with the gaming numbers and AMD...does anyone know how their micro-stutter issues? Wasn't there like major frame pacing issues with AMD as a whole? Thinking I might sell this here 10850K and Z490 ITX and go AMD, damn.

    Rage 2 (Epic Store 02/18- 02/25)

    That's not the only thing Steam has over Epic, not by a long shot, and as for it changing it hasn't so far...how long has it been around and its STILL the most lack-luster featureless storefront? Pretty sure this is just a way to steal peoples information and make as much money as possible while...

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    Well, I guess realistically you still increase your money whatever fold, right? Like even if Bitcoin is say $20,000 a piece and you put $200 in it if it's gets up to $40,000 won't you technically have $400? I suppose any money I DID invest COULD increase, my problem is that, and it is the name...

    Oculus Quest 2

    I think this depends on the resolution jump though? Like, the Quest 1 was higher resolution than the CV1 by a good bit but it was still borderline low-resolution based on text legibility, using iron sights on guns that you could barely see, etc. In other words, it didn't seem to really matter...

    Oculus Quest 2

    It's funny because, before the Quest 2, I really didn't have ANY issues with the resolution...even with the CV1 before the Quest (which while it has a higher resolution I couldn't tell). Now though? I put on the Quest 1 and everything is SUPER grainy and aliased. Still doesn't look horrible but...

    Oculus Quest 2

    Having used the Quest 2 for a couple weeks pretty regularly I have to say that it's pretty good. Things I enjoy about it over the Quest 1 are pretty major but it still need works. While the Quest 1 has a better FOV (pretty decently I might add) and better colors and black levels (OLED is being...

    What did you have before? Does the Quest 2 properly use Wifi 6? I have a tri-band AC3200 router now with a 5GHz band especially for the Quest 2 and even playing in the same room, direct line of sight, with the router I still get hiccups and stutter. My PC is directly connected to the router as...

    GPU mining moves to RTX 3000 laptops (AKA exploring new lows)

    Yeah prices have already sky rocketed, should have done it when I had the chance. My desktop would have sold for as much as I could have gotten a TOTL 3080 laptop. But they also do a lot more. Whether it's being a front loader and handling a larger load or has sanitary options like steam and...
