    Artifacts in MW5 with 6900XT?

    I don't have issues in other games that I'm aware of, but I get these linear shimmery things in Mechwarrior 5. I've tried all the settings up and down and can't figure out what might be causing it. I put a screenshot of the most obvious ones but it happens all over the screen. Anyone else see...

    12700k to 13700k or 13900k ?

    Not worth it unless you're rendering on the CPU or something and need more cores.

    High temps on RX6800XT after a re-paste?

    I might have to do this too. My new 6900XT runs at 60-65C gaming and the hot spot is 110C all the time basically. I've had 3 or 4 crashes just today.

    Best bang for the $? 5500 vs 5600 vs 5600X vs 3600X for OFFICE work loads

    The 5500 is just a 5600G with the graphics disabled. Its a leftover chip. If you're really that keen to save $30 why not just buy used? I mean either will be OK, but the 5600 arch is better and the cache helps more than you might think. I doubt for productivity you can really tell the difference...

    Best bang for the $? 5500 vs 5600 vs 5600X vs 3600X for OFFICE work loads

    Get the 5600 non X like others have said, and a good SSD.

    What is the best GPU for 1080p gaming

    Just scroll a little more to where they turned RT on, you know the signature feature of the 40-series. By that point your cherry picking is meaningless. I mean, I get what you're trying to say, it doesn't make any sense to buy a $1600 GPU for 1080p and I'm totally with you on that. Its silly...

    What is the best GPU for 1080p gaming

    Great, you just showed the 4090 topping the charts in every game. Thanks for proving my point. Its like the ecoboost mustang owners that say they're faster at half throttle lol

    What is the best GPU for 1080p gaming

    Yeah go ahead and find us a benchmark where anything outperforms a 4090 in gaming.

    What is the best GPU for 1080p gaming

    For 1080p at $300 I would find a 6600XT/6650XT, they can be had from $279-$309. If you're willing to go a little higher you can sometimes find a 3060 around $350. As for a 3070 you're going to find a used mining card and unless you're trying to run heavy raytracing you're going to be getting...

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    Oooh she came in a day early. And surprisingly solved a problem I had that I thought was software but must have been the NV driver. Been having a terrible time with youtube running in the background when I play a game, it kept wanting to drop quality and pause itself when it was out of focus...

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    It was one of the $699 ones but I had over $250 of gift points I have to use before Dec 31st so I just grabbed some amazon gift cards and got it.

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    RT is here to stay, looking at Unreal 5 and other new engines its going to be critical in the future. Hopefully AMD catches up quickly because this market doesn’t need to be skewed any more.

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    Yeah I’ve been waiting so long to grab a 4090 I managed to snag an ASRock 6900XT OCF which is an XTXH chip for $479 after using some rewards from my credit card that were about to expire. My 3070ti is just not enough for 4k even with games that have DLSS. Since the 4090 is a unicorn fart and...

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    I thought RT was worthless until I started using it, in games where it’s implemented well I really like it. Unfortunately the 3070ti isn’t really strong enough to run good settings and RT except at 1080p.

    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    Its a lot of hours when I have 2 hours or so every other day ¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)_/¯ If it breaks, I'll turn it in to microcenter and get a new one. I bought the long ass warranty for a reason. Already replaced the original one that was constantly popping up to tell me it needed to run the panel refresh.

    I've got about 800 hours on my FO48U, max brightness HDR on no problems.

    RTX3070TI vs 6900XT

    I've owned both and still use the 3070ti right now. The 6900XT is significantly faster. 3070ti used for $350 is an ok deal but at $600 hell no. The only time you could make a case is if you really wanted RT or some special Nvidia features.

    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    So I just looked it up and apparently voice #5 is "an anonymous member of the LGBTQ+ community" according to apple. Well, ok. Still sounds adorable to me though. I actually found a good use for siri, when I play spotify while I'm in the shower its really good at turning the volume up and down...

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    Yeah I was eyeballing the Dell ultrawide but I don't really like those. I had the older 34" gsync model (non OLED) and while it was nice its hard to use 21:9 with some games. I'd love to get one of these, then I won't even need to change from my 3070ti since 1440p isn't that hard to run. I'm a...

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    My FO48U is sort of behind the desk lol. I pulled the desk out about 18" from the wall and put a floor TV stand there with the monitor on it.

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    Then you've really missed out, some of the best artifacts I've ever seen are on old LCDs with CC backlights. They get this nice lightning pattern shimmer on them, its pretty amazing.

    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    I moved my icons to the start menu and taskbar, auto-hide taskbar and then set a rotating set of wallpapers. I also don't run my windows maximized since its a 48" display so I can wiggle them around a little. It took some getting used to but I love my OLED screen.

    GN: RDNA3 explained in detail.

    I wish I could find one. I've had one on backorder for 3 weeks or so but they don't know when they'll get more, and if they come into stock anywhere else they're sold out in about 60 seconds, most of the time you can't even get them in your cart.

    GN: RDNA3 explained in detail.

    If you can find a 4090 so easy get me one, I've been watching stock trackers and checking sites for a month straight and haven't even seen one in stock that wasn't 2-3x MSRP.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I’m still waiting to even catch the tail end of one of these things. Two months now and still chasing stock trackers all over the place, probably spent more time looking for a damn card than I will playing games on it if I got one. I guess since I got rid of the 3090ti my piddly little 3070ti...

    iPhone 14 / iPhone 14 Pro

    After a few days of using the 14PM I’m pretty happy with it with the exception of a few things. - I can’t use Spotify as my alarm any more - the screen has terrible touch response in the corners, like pressing a little x on a site can take a dozen tries - Bluetooth often refuses to connect to...

    Apple Sued for Allegedly Deceiving Users With Privacy Settings

    My point is, you have to take their word for it. Who actually knows if those privacy settings actually do something or the "researchers" who write articles about it didn't get a nice check to say certain things. Since its nearly impossible to verify I just assume everything I do is being tracked.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DWF 34″ QD-OLED 165Hz FreeSync Premium Pro (3440 x 1440)

    I’m considering changing from my FO48U to one of these since it’s so hard to get a high end gpu now. I’ve been waiting for more OLED panels because I can’t give up the colors any more. I didn’t want to be locked in to Nvidia with the gsync model.
