    Is medium to high end Pc gaming becoming too niche ?

    I think yes and it will force more and more people towards consoles. I have no issues whatsoever with anyone who can afford 5k high end pcs that used to be 3k just 3 years ago. This is not a gripe at them. This is a gripe at those that are destroying the PC gaming community by overpricing the...

    Buyer's remorse... GTX 1080

    Is the note series the only phones that have a stylus?

    Im a Galaxy Note user. Have been since the Note 3. I now have the Note 5 and up till the time Note 7s started having battery issues, that was the phone I was hoping to get. Now Im kinda stuck as I dont think there are any phones that are comparable atm that have a stylus.

    "Best" android tablet (7-10″)

    Still using a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5" LTE edition and have no complaints other than I think the battery needs to be changed. It seems to lose its charge far sooner than when I first acquired it.

    Acer Predator XB271HU losing connection off and on

    So the monitor is back at 165 hz and is stable. No loss of signal at all. Its like nothing ever happened. Completely baffled at this point but happy. I was very close to sending this monitor back to Acer at one point 2 days ago.

    Acer Predator XB271HU losing connection off and on

    Today I redid a monitor reset. That disables the refresh rate OC so now it's at 144hz default. Played a few games for over 2 hours and didn't lose signal. Now I enabled OC and added 10hz to 155. Update: 2 hours later still working fine. Gonna up it to 165 and see. Maybe it was just a fluke...

    Acer Predator XB271HU losing connection off and on

    Also tried another Dp cable without change. Monitor works using HDMI but now stuck as 60Htz. I think the gsync module is the problem. Guess I will spending some time on the phone with Acer tomorrow.

    Acer Predator XB271HU losing connection off and on

    Update: So after some time of stable running at 60hz, I decided to try and bump up the refresh rate a bit but as soon as I enabled OC to 144hz in the monitor settings, monitor started to lose connection again.

    Is there someone else who think that nVidia prices are out of control?

    Its one thing to understand and accept why Nvidia prices there high end cards the way they do and totally another to realize that the high end is slipping away from the middle class and be angered and saddened by that.

    Thinking that Navi will be the first real "Raja" card we see from AMD

    No it forces me to buy the way more expensive card I always buy the best at the time of purchase....if both compete at the high end, that means price will naturally go down. If only one of the 2 dominates the high end, prices will go up. So yeah, for my wallet, I would prefer both were within...

    Thinking that Navi will be the first real "Raja" card we see from AMD

    Yeah Zen needs to be a win for sure. A win meaning they need to be close in perf to Intell at cheaper prices. Cheaper pricing cause I dont expect Zen to be faster but if it can get within 10%, that would be remarkable.

    Thinking that Navi will be the first real "Raja" card we see from AMD

    Or the unlikely scenario where someone comes along and saves their ass with a huge investment. Its possible. AMD/ATI have some interesting IP/patents. If someone wanted to seriously launch a competitive front against Intell or Nvidia, I think they would have enough Ip to be competitive.

    Thinking that Navi will be the first real "Raja" card we see from AMD

    For me its about competition at the highend and price. As long as Nvidia holds the crown in that respect, prices will continue to be too high.

    Thinking that Navi will be the first real "Raja" card we see from AMD

    Yes but even before the cutbacks, R&D was lacking compared to their competitors and due to that had some tough decisions to make in regards to personnel and vision going forward in regards to developer relations and other investments. Its always been an uphill battle for AMD since aquireing ATI...

    Thinking that Navi will be the first real "Raja" card we see from AMD

    We also need not forget that in the R&D department, AMD are severely lacking compared to their direct competitors, Nvidia and Intell. I think we tend to overlook this important fact. The cards are heavily stacked against AMD and therefore as it stands now, the chances that AMD can reverse this...

    AMD & NVIDIA GPU VR Performance: Valve's Robot Repair @ [H]

    Yeah it would seem that way now. AMD keeps on disappointing me although all they have this gen is the mainstream 400 series so far, still you can see they have loads of work to do still. Hopefully DX12/Vulcan VR games will look better for them, but I aint holding my breath. Tired of hoping they...
