    34" Acer Predator X34P 3440x1440 21:9 IPS LED Gaming Monitor - Costco $599

    only 120? I have the older freesync 34" version, same rez -- hard to reach 75hz on the games that matter.

    Slow 4k speeds firecuda drive

    ok, would 1mb/sec "write/read" @ 4k be normal? Maybe I should have mentioned that initially. I hear what you're saying about drive to another drive though. And I don't know what to expect but I know I'm not seeing these slow speeds often enough online to think it's normal.

    Slow 4k speeds firecuda drive

    I've searched for a solution to this 2TB Firecuda HDD. It writes painfully slow in ATTO/Crystal 4k benchmarks. I first noticed this problem when unzipping a relatively small file on this drive. I also have a 1TB similar spec'd drive and it's equally slow. I have the most updated rst...

    Can you identify this graphic artifact in DOOM?

    yeah, no change no matter the AA.

    Can you identify this graphic artifact in DOOM?

    No sample optimization that I can see (now) but I'll do a search to make sure. as for forcing 16x in AMDs settings, I get the same results when on and when off -- meaning the artifacts go away when off. This assuming I understood you when you said go into the drivers. I'm doing my OS to r/o

    Can you identify this graphic artifact in DOOM?

    When I turn down anisotropic filtering it gets rid of the problem in GR wildlands but that seems like a bandaid. I'm using an MSI vega 56, not overclocked atm.

    Can you identify this graphic artifact in DOOM?

    Sorry guys, I don't know how to get help for this because I don't know what to call this problem in DOOM. If you look closely you can see like white stitching on the ground in the map. I get this occasionally in ghost wildlands on the roads.

    Blind Test - RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 TI G-Sync

    perhaps if you had a monitor that could drive more than 60hz you'd notice something. I get frameskipping on my 34" 1440p freesynce monitor @ above 60hz and the monitor is rated at 75. Just my thoughts on that.

    vega @ bb

    I'm currently stuck with a 1000 dollar freesync (75hz) monitor that frame-skips w/nvidia cards limiting me to 60hz. My fury card couldn't drive it like I wanted.

    vega @ bb

    For the time being, they have their xfx air for $599. Not sure when it ships but at least you can order it. I know it's not a hot deal.

    WiFi Enabled Light Bulbs and other household stuff

    Unfamiliar with that device.... But to your original question, the RGB bulbs are cool and you can find them cheap, even working with Alexa though on/off fn is your best bet. Even without voice command the options in app are suffice pretty much across the board. The Dot is so cheap, about the...

    WiFi Enabled Light Bulbs and other household stuff

    Using them in lamps across the house. Grouping them is easy enough and works pretty great w/Alexa. I don't think you'll be able to dim lights through Alexa though, just on/off functionality currently. I use mostly LIFX and those TP 50w bulbs. Can't beat the price on those TP link bulbs.

    Wanting to get a 1060 for 1440p instead of a 1070, a lot of naysayers though.

    running two 980 sli for 3440 * 1440 gaming. Most games 60FPS+ (high to ultra) But I'm moving to vega to cover my 1440p gaming. Mainly, my monitor is freesync and hates nvidia -- wont even game at the monitors 75Mhz RR without severe frame-skipping. Only at 60 does it game well which is...

    290X to R9 Nano?

    I had a nano in my system and let's just say I loved the performance for the size but the heat and throttling were notable. I was able to remedy the throttling but I could never really keep that side case cover on due to the heat or at the expense of noise.

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    lots of good advice in this thread. I too had a pcie slot go bad some time ago -- though we know that's not your problem. Enjoy that beast of a card.

    Surgeon Wears Snapchat Sunglasses While Operating

    yeah, those glasses are too dark for surgery....superficial surgery or not. Really, Idk who'd let a surgeon touch them when glasses like these interfere with depth, color and produce glare. :yawn: You think?

    Surgeon Wears Snapchat Sunglasses While Operating

    Eff that. I didn't read the whole story but if he's doing anything invasive, I'd pass. Not because of the ethical side of things either. The dude's sight is compromised. I don't think I need to break it down further.
