    Sony buying Bungie!!!!

    Sega is into more things than most people realize through their various subsidiaries. They run bowling alleys, arcades, and even point of sale terminals/cash registers at gas stations.

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    I still believe this thing should have been a Focus and not a Mustang regardless of the choice of propulsion system.

    MrBeast Ranks as Highest-Paid YouTube Star Ever, Earning an Estimated $54 Million in 2021

    He didn't make anti-semitic jokes. He did a stunt where he paid some guys in another country to pull pranks on video and THEY did the anti-semitic joke written on a white posterboard without Pewdiepie's previous knowledge. IIRC, his reaction to it wasn't livestreamed, so he's still responsible...

    Players found cheating in Call of Duty games may now find themselves banned from the entire franchise, including all previous games and future titles

    Who said they were using legit credit cards or other means of purchase actually tied to their real name? An enormous amount are purchased with stolen funds. I work in fraud and I see it ALL DAMN DAY. The idiots just straight purchase onto a steam, origin, blizzard account, etc. in their name...

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    Edge was hot garbage for several years until they switched it to being based on Chromium. Now it is actually usable and in some respects decent. I completely understand why some hate it because it isn't without it's flaws. Edge is quite commonly used in businesses due to all the MS integration...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Unless Captain Kirk got sucked out a hull breach into an alternate universe where he transformed into a woman with amnesia, I'd say it's simply some easter egg they inserted hoping fans would see it. There was "Mushroom Samba" (an episode name in the original show) and "Royale with Cheese" on...

    Battlefield 2042

    Not sure if this is a memory leak or working as intended. RAM usage was increasing about 2-3MB per second until it reached 16GB used. Normally the game runs about 8-9GB used. From the moment this screenshot was taken... it peaked. Then the round ended and immediately 2GB of RAM was freed. This...

    Worth going from a i7-9700k to a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X?

    The only one of those games that has potential to max that CPU out is BF2042. But we're talking the difference between perfectly playable to omg overkill going up to the 5900x. Don't get me wrong, OMG overkill performance is what we all strive for just so we don't need to worry, but I'm fairly...

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    That is a whole other branch of Windows aka Windows on ARM (or in this specific case Windows on Raspberry Pi "WoR") which MS treats like it's only serious enough about it to keep investors happy they are developing "something" when Apple is going balls to the wall on their ARM architecture and...

    Battlefield 2042

    If the maps are good and aren't a bug ridden, game crashing mess like levolution was at launch for BF4 maps, I will forgive them for that. However, I will still be sad if they decide to cut DLC short like they did with BFV. As funny as that huge fuckin tornado was, I have strong suspicion it...

    Battlefield 2042

    I remember those guys had that reality show Howe and Howe Tech on discovery channel about 10 years ago. I know they mostly survive on civilian purchases, but the US military has been toying with one of their tanks for years as a drone platform. I don't think they've gotten any major purchases...

    Battlefield 2042

    It's been a slow downward trend. Maps at launch (excluding DLC and patch content) BF1942: 19 BF:Vietnam: 14 BF2: 14 BF2142: 10 BF:BC2: 9 BF3: 9 BF4: 10 Battlefield Hardline: 9 BF1: 9 BF5: 8 BF2042: 7 I'm not too sure on 1942 and Vietnam. That was 20 years ago LOL.

    Battlefield 2042

    It looks like I was right. JackFrags video says the new faction is called "No-Pats" short for "Non Patriated". It's similar to the word "Ex-pat" or "Ex-patriate" which is an emigrant or exile from a country. I'm guessing "No-Pats" are a bit of a mercenary faction with no country to call their own.

    Battlefield 2042

    That's also true. But it also sucked hardcore and couldn't even get a decent player base from existing BF players.

    Battlefield 2042

    No battle royale because Firestorm sucked hardcore. IIRC, it got farmed out to another developer, was a bit buggy for a while, and all interest in it went away in just a couple months. The idea just doesn't work well with Battlefield's game mechanics and they were already spending countless...

    Battlefield 2042

    I was laughing so hard at them trying to run away on that dinkey little 3 wheeled tuk-tuk taxi. Another "only in battlefield moment" where you go "OH SHIT!" as you try desperately to get away. Last time the Tuk-Tuk was in there was BFBC2:Vietnam.

    Battlefield 2042

    I've noticed a few things about the possible story... I was listening to the random radio chatter on the countdown stream, and heard a few things that seem to indicate a 3rd faction like "US and Russian forces have been accused of escalating the conflict"... almost like they are getting...

    Battlefield 2042

    A blending of BF3/4 timeline leading up to BF2142. Getting a mix of both. I love how they incorporated a few "only in Battlefield moments" like the infamous "Rendezook". and the mid-air ram of a helicopter.

    How Many CPU Cores Do You Need For Great PC Gaming?

    The only chronic disconnect is people that don't recognize the deliberate bravado and often sarcastic attitude the veteran's of this forum have. ;) It's not that members don't recognize that people game with less than the best, far from it actually. It's that there is always an emphasis on...

    I microwaved a R9 390X gaming and now my pc won't run after 3rd time

    Ya, 40c is 104F and he said that was with his A/C on. Being in the spring or fall based on whatever hemisphere you're in currently, the highest recorded temps anywhere in the world today only reached about 45C in sub-saharan Africa. He also said he owns a 200w microwave 42L LG microwave, and...

    Well, he did click "like" on my post a few pages back when I said it was the funniest fucking thing I've seen on this forum in a while... ================ ================ That being said those pics and all the nastiness around every solder trace on the board do suggest it quite likely was...

    I microwaved a R9 390X gaming and now my pc won't run after 3rd time

    200 watt Microwave? I don't think I've ever seen one with so little power. Most I've seen that size are usually 1,200 watts. That's your problem. I think you should double down on this. You might actually zap things back into working order. Just make sure this time you do it outside and set...

    NASA’s latest Mars rover has the same processor as an iMac from 1998

    Yes. You could stick an iPhone X up there and have 10x the processing power. You may also have to encase it in an inch thick of lead to protect it from radiation. So what's the trade-off? A CPU with 20+ years of experience and one everyone knows every single weakness, can optimize code for a...

    Ryzen 5000's memory controller improvements, 4 sticks versus 2

    Yep. And that's why those crucial sticks are so expensive.

    Ryzen 5000's memory controller improvements, 4 sticks versus 2

    Gamer's Nexus shows data showing 4 sticks giving a performance improvement of 5-10% in most cases as well as how the added capacity is not where the benefit comes from. However, someone in the comments gave an excellent breakdown of why this matters and what GN is missing in their video. It's...

    HardOCP has always been AMD [H]aters

    Not to mention that Kyle Bennett himself runs a personal Threadripper machine. The only time I recall this place being overwhelmingly against AMD was back in the bulldozer days... but that was almost a decade ago.

    VideoCardz: AMD to introduce Zen3 on October 8, Radeon RX 6000 series on October 28

    You aren't wrong, except on the last bit. There is another way to defeat that stereotype for AMD. It's the same way Nvidia dug themselves out when the FX series was flopping and ATI was taking huge chunks of the market. They need literal fuck tons of marketing cash. They still have to have...

    Zen 3 is rumored to be flaunting monumental IPC gains in early testing

    Do we have a date yet? I've got $700 burning a hole in my pocket right now and I so desperately need an upgrade. 2600k has been running strong for many years but it bottlenecks the 2070 and I can feel the sluggishness in many newer titles.

    Apple to Announce its own Mac Processor

    It won't matter whose CPU they use, they still won't be able to design a PCB that won't fry itself. The only difference is this time, when a short develops on a proprietary screen connector, the 50v backlight will only fry a $20 ARM CPU instead of a $200 Intel one. Kudos for Apple for finding...

    Crysis remastered could be announced soon on new CryEngine tech

    The issue with Crysis was never "graphics optimization". It was "processor optimization". The graphics were extremely well optimized. In other words, it was CPU bottlenecked. And as long as you had enough VRAM on your video card (768MB or more), you weren't GPU bottlenecked either on the high...

    Ok. Thanks for clearing that up. I hadn't seen anything about the game before today, I wasn't sure how it worked.
