    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Oh they're only up to like 9:30am 9/17 based on the community spreadsheet. I hit the notify button on 10/5 as well, I'm not counting on getting it before cyberpunk even with the delay. Hell at this rate I doubt I'll get it this year. nvidia isn't going to own up to the crappy production...

    Lack of 16:10 options is DEPRESSING

    How is having the flexibility to display the content in a manner you prefer a "crutch"? This is coming off like grumpy old boomer nonsense where people have failed to catch on that regardless of what they think the industry for the most part moved past them 10+ years ago. Hell, I find the idea...

    Lack of 16:10 options is DEPRESSING

    Do you only have one display?

    Super Mario 3 Prototype Sells for $31,200

    I'm sure you've see the famicom cartridges. If I were to take a blind guess, it's because the NES cartridges had more room for the dev board someone wanted to use and it's not like they wouldn't have had easy access to them to gut one to use as a shell.

    EA, Motive and Lucasfilm Announce Star Wars: Squadrons

    Yeah, EA didn't kill Wing Commander at all. Chris Roberts had left in '96, which was the last year of a wing commander game and EA didn't mandate Origin Systems be an online only game company till '99 or 2000 and even then when it had cancelled Origin's projects, it was Privateer 3 that got...

    Intel Acquires Killer NIC

    Ugh, had a killer NIC on a board ages ago and hated it for similar reasons to what exlink mentioned above.

    Intel launches its 10th gen Comet Lake CPUs - breaks world record in soldier numbers (possibly)

    Most actually. Dell, Lenovo, HP, and that's your big common ones. Asus, Microsoft, Acer all do as well. Sure it's more laptops than desktops, but that's just fairly common in general these days.

    Zooms end to end encryption, not really end to end.

    Skype and Skype for Business have effectively been treated as two almost entirely separate things for years, with the consumer version getting the shaft. However over the past couple of years, MS has basically stopped doing anything new on the S4B side of things, as they're pushing all of that...

    Intel’s Culture Needed Fixing. Its C.E.O. Is Shaking Things Up.

    Wait, so it went from a white bias, to now including people from all over Asia? And that's still the same bias? What the fuck even?

    Intel’s Culture Needed Fixing. Its C.E.O. Is Shaking Things Up.

    So then why does Intel hire so many men from Asia?

    REFURBISHED HGST Ultrastar He8 8TB SATA Internal HDD $139 Free Shipping DEAD

    Damn. Was excited till I saw newegg, then as expected from a random seller. But I suppose that's been an issue for years trying to find deals on HGST drives.

    DOOM Eternal: The Final Preview

    No. Because preordering doesn't accomplish anything except throwing away money at something sight unseen. Wait until the game has been out at least a couple of days to make sure you're not buying a dumpster fire.

    Capture Carbon in Concrete Made With CO2

    Well... According to various sources we cut down around 15-25 million trees a year just as christmas trees in the US. https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-many-christmas-trees-do-we-chop-down-each-year-11575032401 https://realchristmastrees.org/dnn/Education/Quick-Tree-Facts There's likely other...

    Atari is building a series of Gaming Hotels across America.

    Sure, there's some occasional nostalgia for $20-$30 that sells. But much like how questionable it is that nostalgia is going to sell a $350+ console, and that's at least a product that people could consider within the same category that people have some mild nostalgia for... do you really think...

    Atari is building a series of Gaming Hotels across America.

    Boomers. They still recognize the name "atari" and think they can get it to mean something again, while finally understanding that "vidya games" is a multi billion dollar industry. I'm sure if they could afford it, they'd try and get another big name, but I doubt anyone would be willing to let...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    I didn't say anything about raw cam footage. Do you really not understand how analog film works? BTW, newer theaters generally use digital, and a lot of others have switched over to digital projection(it's a hell of a lot easier to distribute and of course handle), and it's generally pretty...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Oh boy... as I already said, film does not have a resolution. Film has a grain, higher quality film will have a smaller grain. There is no direct comparison to resolution for film grain at all, as film grain is a series of crystals spread across the film stock. That's why with a film projector...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Because you should see an optometrist? Film quality varies, but hollywood tends not to skimp on it, and was generally far superior to normal broadcast television. If you're referring to the 24fps, well that's because people like 24fps apparently, even though most couldn't be bothered to care if...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    But he wasn't though. The question the reporter asked about his faith in Data... holy crap the amount of times Data caused problems, nevermind the ones with Lore being involved. And yes, he was friendlier with Data in the movies, but there was more to TNG than the movies, which were honestly...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Back to the actual shows themselves... ST has always had politics in it. Just not this damn hamfisted. It's so bad that it basically retcons decades of established fiction in the process and is turning starfleet more into the 40k imperium of man than anything else. Hate the filthy xenos...

    Bose is closing ALL retail stores in US, Australia, Europe and Japan

    The fucking point, is that built in speakers are shit. No one is arguing that except you. No one is arguing that a proper hifi setup is better than a soundbar. Apparently this is beyond your understanding, but not everyone has the space for a full hifi setup, gives enough of a shit for a full...

    Bose is closing ALL retail stores in US, Australia, Europe and Japan

    You do realize that just about all built in TV speakers are shit, right? Even on expensive TVs they're shit which is why even an average soundbar can be an improvement. Other than a couple models of TV that include soundbars(there's a couple LG models that spring to mind), I can't think of any...

    Bose is closing ALL retail stores in US, Australia, Europe and Japan

    As other people have pointed out, no one is pretending bose hasn't had innovations in the past. The problem is that their marketing is a joke(I still remember those bose TV commercials where they would "demonstrate" their superior audio by just playing music louder when it's over the same...

    Star Citizen Alpha 3.8 Live Now, Adding Tons of Content and Features

    And really that's the crux of it. I'm not sure if the $250M in crowdfunding includes that $40M in private funding, but even at $250? holy shit. Lets even ignore the first couple years of development and just point to the last 5 when things supposedly ramped up. There's still only a handful of...

    Star Citizen Alpha 3.8 Live Now, Adding Tons of Content and Features

    People aren't willing to let CR get away with it. The problem is that any time CR has been criticized for the past couple of years even here, there has been a vocal minority of sycophants that would shout down any criticism in threads, start namecalling, dragging threads off topic, to make sure...

    Star Citizen Alpha 3.8 Live Now, Adding Tons of Content and Features

    How did they go through all that money? Marketing, nepotism, conventions/fund raisers, setting up 3 dev studios, setting up their own mocap studio that they assumed other people would pay them to use, paying a ton of people up front for mocap and voice work that'll likely be largely useless by...

    Intel Revives old 22nm process to battle 14nm shortages

    It's actually pretty simple. It takes years to get entirely new chips designed and it takes a serious time investment for the manufacturing processes. Intel was resting on their laurels and got caught being lazy. It's that they were so lazy by the time ryzen launched, they were years behind. No...

    It is Quake 3’s 20th Anniversary today

    People want it, but the money is elsewhere. For all of the bitching and moaning every 10 of us do about the current state of the game industry there's easily 1-2 whales just shoveling money into developers pockets in f2p games or even full price games with microtransactions. Top that off with...

    Doom creator John Romero on what's wrong with modern shooter games

    Didn't Destiny 2 have a method of increasing the level of items by sacrificing others so you could keep the ones you preferred? At least I remember it having that.

    Doom creator John Romero on what's wrong with modern shooter games

    Doom 2016 had the same crap every other FPS did if not worse, because while the weapons were far more distinct from eachother than most "modern war shooters", you STILL had to unlock crap with a progression system. Doom 2016's multiplayer was basically overhyped trash from the get-go.

    Doom creator John Romero on what's wrong with modern shooter games

    So funny thing about that. I recall watching a youtube video a couple years back from I think levelcap, who mentioned that if a game didn't have a progression system he just wouldn't be interested in it. Personally, I think most of these progression systems shoehorned into games are terrible but...

    Billy Mitchell's Records Being Reinstated by Guinness!

    The thing is, even ignoring guiness the whole community is jam packed with cheaters, review staff cheating, staff helping cheaters, etc. It seems every month there's some new "scandal" involving some crap at either twin galaxies or some speed run GDQ related nonsense. The only reason I even...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    EU passes the "link tax"

    You're right about that's how it is, and that's how it was intended. The whole point that people tend to forget while still managing to acknowledge that one state can be very different from another, is that this is the United STATES of America and the point of not using popular vote for...
