    What are you playing on your deck?

    Fallen Order and Cyberpunk. Steam Deck is enabling me to actually finish these games 20-30 minutes at a time. Hows the resolution? Does it display deck standard resolution at huge scale and make it all blocky?

    So Steam is practically Ancient in computer years...

    It was more than the games too. It was the friends, the lan parties, lugging around your huge steel case and CRT minotor, getting that upgrade so you could play at 1024x768 or whatever...every improvement felt like leaps and bounds ahead of what you had before. Most of all it was this new...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    You can tweak settings and get better battery life. I typically cap everything at 40fps and it helps a lot.

    Digitaltrends Top 6 Nvidia Cards of All Time List. Agree or disagree?

    I second that. 1080 Ti was the best performance for value card I ever had. My son uses it now and it still runs everything great.

    Mine showed up today, super impressed with valve hardware as usual. Played some Fallen Order streamed from my pc and Stardew Valley installed on the deck. This thing is going to be a lot of fun

    Luckily they still support the steam link, its a great little piece of hardware. The deck might take its place at the tv though, we'll see.

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    I'm guessing its like you said, most of the preorders were first day but they also increased production capacity.

    Intel Shutting Down Optane

    I believe its all of it. There isnt a fab that can make it anymore(maybe an intel one in china?) Since lehi was sold and adoption just isnt there. I think its interesting that micron dumped it with dave zinser as CFO, he goes to intel, and they dump it too...

    Intel Shutting Down Optane

    Optane is phase change, intel sold off nand to sk. Micron ditched theirs (3DXP) a couple years ago and sold the Lehi fab after ending the joint development project and is focusing on CXL instead. Considering how its been money pit for both companies, I'm surprised it took them this long.

    Power disruption at Micron DRAM facility in Japan

    Another thing to mention is that all of these facilites are audited depending on the standards their products adhere to. The auditors ask for things like risk mitigation, force majeure, all that. All of this has to be developed and documented if you want to sell parts into automotive, DoD, ect...

    Power disruption at Micron DRAM facility in Japan

    I'm sure all of this has been planned out to the nth degree. I dont work in a fab but im in the semi industry for test/dev. We have backup plans, risk mitigation strategies, all this stuff and its not that critical when we lose power, chilled water, ln2, air, ect. Worst for us is we lose time on...

    Diablo Immortal PC Build

    That's a fair criticism, and it's very possible that I didn't check the settings properly. My initial impression just didn't feel like it warranted any more time.

    Diablo Immortal PC Build

    Installed, tried for 10 minutes, uninstalled. There's literally no reason to play this if you already have Diablo 3. Unless you want worse graphics, bad UI, and dumbed-down D3 playstyle.

    HP Reverb G2

    Screen imo is significantly clearer and shows darks instead of grays. I also find it to be much more comfortable and the speakers are even better than my quest2 with the vive deluxe audio strap. Each has their owns strengths, and the G2's is definitely visuals/audio.

    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    I had the xc3 queued from almost the same day and dropped it in favor of keeping the ftw3 ultra and some 3090 card. The lower-end models are never going to happen I don't think.

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Gabe Newell said in an interview with IGN that the number of high-end models outsold the low-end, which is something they didnt expect. Im assuming most people here didnt buy the 64gb model so the lines for the 256/512 models are probably long. Hence why all these really early orders arent...
