    The RTX 3080 benchmark results you've been waiting for

    I was in the same boat. Bought a 3080 back in September and stuck it into my 2600k system and it did fine in most titles.

    HP Reverb G2

    How are the visuals? Would you say you feel pretty immersed? Or are there things graphically that make you think it need to be better?

    Same here. This just might be THE headset to have for MS Flight Sim. Gonna spend 10000 hours visiting every corner on the planet.

    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    Bought a 3080 because I needed a 60 fps guaranteed framerate for all games for next 5 years from 4k all the way to 1080p. So you say 3080 is overkill for 1080p. Maybe, maybe not. Just a mere months after the 3080 released, we already have Valhalla and WatchDog Legions that will not hit 60fps at...

    HP Reverb G2

    The controls out now work fine. I'm just lazy and it gonna take some convincing to get me off my arse again. So I figure if they had gloves that work like in Minority Report or something like that, It would be so awesome that I would put my laziness aside and try to go experience it.

    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    Why do people buy a 700 horsepower car and drive it around their neighborhood at 40 miles per hour? Cause they can. And how could DSR be a marketing strategy if I didn't even know about it until AFTER I bought the 3080? And DSR comes in most handy for big TV's, which alot of people have now. All...

    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    Bro, It's real simple. 4k DSR on a 1080p screen worse or better than just regular 1080p? Not interested in all the theoretical mumbo jumbo. Hands down 4k DSR is great. Now why don't I just go buy some 4k monitors? Cause I just don't feel like dropping 1600 bucks on some computer monitors. I run...

    HP Reverb G2

    I'm sure somewhere down the line, they'll make some VR gloves and that's when I'll get back into the whole stand up and move around experience. For now, I'm glued to my desk. Anything else to be released in near term that rivals or beats the G2 in terms of visuals?

    Rtx 3000 series undervolt discussion

    Here's what I did with my 3080 FE. I got crappy old 1080p monitors at 60hz, so 60fps is all I need. Does it in every game I've played at 4k DSR resolution. Main thing though is I have a Bitfinix Prodigy case and the 3080 gets hot unless I undervolt it. At stock it goes to 80c quick and...

    HP Reverb G2

    Been out of this VR loop for 5 years. Bought a CV1 on release. Then went and bought 2 additional sensor thingies and did the whole room VR experience. Played it for 3 months and put it all away for five years. I decided it was just too damn blurry and never bothered with it again. Now I'm...

    Here's how I currently see things.... New games release, and you get something like this... (Ultra Settings, No DLSS, Full Raytrace) Then you wait a few weeks and Nvidia gives you a magic patch and you get this..... Now will it always be like this above? Maybe not, but better to...

    I'm on a 3080 FE and a 9900k chip. I got 1080p monitors but I set everything at 4k Nvidia DSR. There are more times than not when I'm just sitting right below buttery 60 fps without DLSS turned on. Control, Metro Exodus, Tomb Raider. Talking like 40 to 55 fps at 4k. Then I turn on DLSS and it...

    Let’s say somehow, magically, AMD got more FPS than Nvidia in raytrace for some future title. Best case, it’s 5 or 10 % faster. So let’s say Cyberpunk is running at 40 FPS with raytracing at 4k on Nvidia and 45 FPS with raytracing at 4k on AMD. Well that’s still pointless cause it’s not 60 FPS...

    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    If you want 60 FPS at 4K, Nvidia is your only option really. DLSS is key. DLSS 2.1 is more or less identical to native 4K in terms of visuals. And that’s my personal opinion. I can’t really tell any difference. A lot of these games like Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, Control with raytracing...and...

    Nvidia wins. Every new game coming out will have raytrace just cuz it’s the new hotness. So why would you spend this amount of money and turn it off? And DLSS is that saving grace that will take you from 45ps average at 4k with raytracing on to above 60 FPS. Seen it in tons of titles...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Many folks are trying to equate VR to revolutionizing gaming. I tend to see gaming as an afterthought. VR will revolutionize the way we live our lives. From military applications, Job applications, Education applications, Tourist applications, the opportunity to open up new markets of...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    I always thought 3d vision, 3d TV's and even 4K tvs are just a shotgun approach to finding the next new revolutionary medium of entertainment. None stuck. As for VR, If we include the Virtual boy as the start of the VR age, then we can argue it's been in the making for 25 years. And it still is...

    About wet my pants in VR

    I'm on the Oculus touch. I don't get a laser pointer per se, but when my hook is able to attach to something, I get a circle telling me it's a valid target. I'v had the game for 3 days and have so far gotten through about 20 minutes of it. The game brings out my fear of heights to the fullest...

    Patience Young Padawan. You're too into the here and now. When you have Facebook, Google, Apple, Sony, MSFT, STEAM, Nvidia and every other industry giant seeing the light at the end of the tunnel regarding VR, it's hard to bet against them. They know where this is going. Zuckerberg already told...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Here's how I look at it. If traditional gaming is always going to be the leading gaming format, that would logically conclude that there will be a CoD 20, CoD 50, or Battlefield 10, Battlefield 25.....I mean seriously gaming has basically exhausted all creative avenues. What else could there...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    2017 / 2018 is going to be content overload IMO. Old or dying studios suddenly have an avenue to make money by porting old stuff over to VR. Imagine 25 years of classic games ported to VR.....head explosion.... I actually bought the Rift off Ebay for rediculous amounts of money right when it...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Well, if you have had that much experience with VR and don't like it, perhaps the simplest explanation is not that VR is a niche, but you are a niche..... As for replacing traditional gaming....when the first cars rolled out, peeps swore it would never replace horses. It seems to me your entire...

    About wet my pants in VR

    Yeah, I'm afraid of heights as well. This game is utterly over the top. My hands are sweatin so much, it might short out the controllers. Right now, I can only do it for about 5 minutes before i got to put it down. The worst for me is not the flying around, but the hanging on a tree and then...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Pretty sure you just proved to everyone that has VR that you don't have a clue. It's like trying to explain what something smells like if you have never smelled it. Think you are still thinking on a 2d plane. With VR, even the most mundane and boring tasks like changing a light bulb is now...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    The last great tech that changed the world and elevated whole economies was the dawn of the computer age back in the 90's. I think VR is even bigger than that. And companies know it. And the tech this time around will evolve much faster than people think, just because there is so much money to...

    WoW. Played Windlands for the first time on Oculus Touch. Had no idea what i was getting into. Played it standing. Had to put it down after 5 minutes, LOL. Have not felt that much RAW fear in a very long time. I was grasping the trigger like I was hanging on for dear life......

    Same here. I stopped gaming for 10 years, despite upgrading to the newest vid cards every 3 years just to run a tech demo here and there. Now I can't put this VR stuff down. There is something quite therapeutic in emptying clips of bullets into hordes of monsters after a long day at work and...
