    Does Adjusting Graphics Settings Lower Than the Game Allows Constitute Cheating?

    Any external modification of the game client is a cheat, or advantage. Sure it makes you seem like a "better player," but what's the point if it kills the game community? Communities are what make games fun, if it gets toxic then people leave. Look at Black ops 4, it was a decent title until the...

    Watch AMD's CES Keynote Here

    DMC5 doesnt look very difficult to render. Its a really bad idea to use an unreleased game to represent the performance capabilities. That is kind of like singing your own song on Americas Got Talent.

    Researchers Fabricate 2.5 Nanometer Transistors

    Star Citizen Alpha 3.3 Update Is Out

    This is the issue with including the public in the development process, people just don't get it. Would you say the same for CD Projekt and Cyberpunk 2077, which has been in development for a little longer?

    Intel Will Officially Unveil the 9th-Gen Core Series on October 8

    The difference is minimal in most cases, and I only said I hope they would, they dont necessarily need "magic" to be competitive. Just over a year ago they were laughable by comparison, and look where they are now...

    'Mavericks' Promises 1,000-Player Battle-Royale Mayhem

    They are achieving this by using multiple servers per "lobby," similar to how SpatialOS works. Which in their closed testing works well obviously, but scaling will be the bigger issue.

    Is Ready Player One VR Universe Possible

    Additionally, the book emphasized on the design of OASIS a bit more. What I am failing to see get mentioned is the fact that OASIS was not just a game, but it was an operating system with hardware designed around it. If a company were to start from scratch, by having the entire system built...

    DOTA Announces "DOTA Plus"

    I really like the idea of curbing the steep learning curve of the genre. I personally don't care enough to research "best builds" or "best counter gear for a given situation," but having an assistant that can provide that information is awesome. That is a fair premium option though, considering...

    ASUS PG279Q 144hz 1440P IPS G-Sync

    I am interested in this display, but I am uncertain about it. I currently use the ASUS VG248QE, and it causes eye strain, which I assume is related to PWM flickering as other displays such as my Surface Book do not cause any issues. How do people feel about this display compared to others? I...

    ASUS Z97 Mark S Lucky Draw

    I was digging through my pictures for a story to tell when I came across this one... Last year there was an order for a rendering server, using several GPU's in tandem, which by the way gets really really loud when under load. There were well over 40 of these cards going, the ambient temps of...

    WD Purple 3 TB or Seagate® 3TB ST300VN000 Server NAS Drive

    Worth building?

    I don't know if this idea is plausible, or even affordable... I have an unused Intel i5 3570k processor, after upgrading due to a faulty motherboard prior, and I've been really wanting to get an "on demand" type of environment going. I've considered buying a Raspberry Pi or equivalent... but...

    Computer turns off after being on for ~30mins

    Yes, I have checked thoroughly for any software settings, and I cannot find one related to this. The event log always refers to an unexpected shut down, and thus occurs in the BIOS ad well. I feel it's the motherboard, or CPU, and with Microcenter's current deal I may just buy an i5 4690 and an...

    Ahh yes you are correct, it goes down to $129 and it also has a $20 MIR ... so even better for me. Good call! I am probably going to have to change my mind on the choice of RAM due to Newegg selling out yesterday on the Trident X CL7 (2x8) 1.5V, and settle with Crucial Ballistix CL8 (2x8) 1.5V...

    PC desk recommendations

    The minimum variety of the Galant is due to them replacing the Galant with the Bekant. The biggest thing about the price to these desks is the 10-year warranty you get, which is extremely hard to beat anywhere else. If you want to see Bekant variants the best thing to do is browse the...
