    Digital Foundry Analyzes Google's Stadia Platform

    They are actually counting frames on a 240 fps camera between input and action taking place on screen which is different than latency detected through an application. Even then, I think what DF is saying is misleading because TCP latency is going to feel WAY different display latency from a...

    OMEN X Emperium 65 Is Now Available for Purchase

    My sony 65 inch Z9D which came out in 2016 has 640 dimming zones,120hz (at 1080p), and hits 1800 nits post calibration (I turned it down, seriously this shit is too bright). No active sync though. I got it for $2k. From what I read Sony's dimming tech is miles ahead of competitors. How the hell...

    Researchers at Iowa State University Use TensorFlow to Analyze Traffic Patterns

    This isn't exactly new. My sister did her phD thesis in 2015 on this exact topic, although she was more focused on the impact of road tolls, light schedules, weather and construction on surrounding traffic conditions in the immediate and surrounding areas. The idea was to create dynamic city...

    Bioware Supposedly Tried to Make a KOTOR Sequel

    I always thought the class stories in Old Republic were really good. Imperial Agent in particular is exceptional. I guess people can't get past the MMO gameplay but at this point in 2019 I think I would find it much harder to play KOTOR over an MMO. Also, it amazes me how zombie like people's...

    Jensun Huang Comments on the Viability of Streaming Games

    Thinking about game streaming like watching Twitch or Netflix is the wrong want to think about it. The way image reconstruction is heading in 5 years a $200 box with a cheap arm processor and a pile of tensor cores will be able to take a low res image, or an image with selective details, and...

    Nvidia DLSS Analysis

    Tech Workers Worry about Age Discrimination at Age 40

    I'd reframe this as "43% of tech workers are not actively learning new technology and fear what they know will soon become obsolete." Shit changes fast and you have to keep up if you want to stay relevant.

    More Loco Motion in your Ocean or Desert

    Blizzard Trolls The Trolls In Overwatch

    It is no worse than any other game but Blizz will actually globally mute people if they act like jackasses. That lead to forum threads talking about if 'gg ez' was reportable or not and how tilting gg ez was, etc. Blizz just turned the whole thing into a joke. The wonderful irony is people that...

    Star Trek Fan Film Motion To Dismiss Denied

    I'll never understand why anyone thinks fan projects like this can end up any other way. It isn't about shutting fans down, it is about licensing and maintaining legal control of the brand. If a company doesn't protect their IP with these type of lawsuits they risk the brand falling into public...

    Blizzard Announces Overwatch

    Heh, I figured I'd be in the minority in being totally underwhelmed by their childish video. It seems like the internet just eats up mindless action that lacks any shred of characterization or humanity (the two seconds of the kid picking the fist up is the closest they get). I'm sure the...

    GTX 880 and 800 Series to be More Powerful But Cheaper than the 700 Series

    I hope so, I really want to get a new video card before the fall games start coming out. The 680 just doesn't cut it at 4k lol

    Samsung U28D590D not waking from sleep

    I've had OP's problem 3-4 times since I got the monitor in April. I just power cycle the monitor and everything comes back up after that. GPU is a 680 running the latest nvidia release drivers. This happens to me as well except my windows are put in the top right. I think (pure speculation)...

    GTX 880 and 800 Series to be More Powerful But Cheaper than the 700 Series

    The TV doesn't have Display Port? The 1.3 spec handles 4k @ 60hz no problem and is already available on the 600 and 700 series.

    Intel Devil's Canyon Core Processor Presentation @ [H]

    Watch Dogs Image Quality Preview [H]

    I just checked my ram usage and it is way different than it was earlier this week. I distinctly remember seeing WD using over 8gb of system ram at several points when I was playing Tuesday night and being shocked at how much memory it was taking up. I just ran through the city for about 15...

    Watch Dogs Image Quality Preview [H]

    Have any of you adjusted the shadow quality to see how that effects your performance? I only ask because I am playing at 3840x2160, ultra textures, ultra level of detail, medium shadows, no AA with a 2GB 680 and I don’t experience any stuttering at all. FPS isn't the best, sits around 30, but I...

    Intel Xeon L5639 Hexa(6) Core LGA1366 Price:US $79.80 Used Ebay Seller

    I'm glad I found this thread. I've been kicking around the idea of a whole new build but instead just upgraded my i7 950 to a X5650 for $100. I did a basic OC to 3.4ghz and I’ll try to push that farther once I get some extra time. I am really surprised at how much more responsive the system...

    Blu-ray 3D Versions of Avatar Selling for $400

    Its sad that this isn't coming out for everyone until next year because it is easily the best looking 3D bluray out there. The picture is so much sharper than when I saw it in the theater.

    “Highly Sophisticated” Burglars Hit Best Buy

    This happens a lot more than you would think. Back when I worked at best buy some dudes did the same thing to my store and I can recall hearing about a couple of other stores that were hit with the roof entry trick. I've always wondered how they got up to the roof to begin with.

    What are people using for sound with thier consoles?

    Harmon Kardon AVR 254, Klipsch xw-500d sub, Definitive Mythos center, some old jbl studio bookshelf fronts and klipsch reference bookshelves in the back. I'll eventually get new fronts and rears, but it sounds good enough right now that I keep putting it off.

    Trent Reznor Interview

    I think the thing that most people forget is 99.9% of indie stuff is total shit. Sure some gems pop up now and again but most of it just sucks. I also think it is funny how he hates on Madden/Halo then jumps right on Nintendo's dick. I am pretty sure Nintendo invented franchise exploitation.

    10 Ways Twitter Will Change American Business

    I am not really sure how I could attract new customers through twitter or why I would want to build a brand through twitter. There are too many spambots and not enough ways to get any kind of reliable data mining through followers. I love internet marketing but that place just seems like a huge...

    Non-Deal of the Day

    When I worked at Geek a couple years back I used to do this from time to time. Some people just don't get it or don't want the hassle. I love how people in the thread act like Best Buy is putting a gun to people's faces and forcing them to hand over 129. Everyone has a choice to buy the service...

    Final Fantasy 3/6 and some comparisons to today's games

    Did you actually read any of the dialogue? I remember loving this game as a kid but when I replayed it a year or two ago I was dumbstruck by how horrible all the conversation was. I still played it all the way through, but it is a total nostalgic gaming experience. If I had never played the game...

    The Unspoken Truth About Managing Geeks

    In my experience if you are using any kind of “tactics” to manage anyone it is going to end up in failure. People in general hate to be managed, not just IT dudes. I think IT dudes are more dicks about it because we all watch too much House.

    Lifespan of an MMO. Just an obvservation.

    More like lifespan of a shitty MMO. I was playing EQ for years and loved it, the only reason I quit is because RL friends made me. Been playing WoW for over a year now and I still love it, I play pretty casually though. I think what you are seeing is less MMOs and more of a lifestyle of...

    Survey Finds Xbox 360 Breaks 5 Times More than PS3

My Aston is in the shop all the goddamn time and I’ll buy the V12 Vantage with a smile on my face knowing it will be in the shop just as much. The Consumerist is just a bunch of retarded anti-capitalist shitheads that are pissed...

    Starcraft 2 - no LAN, no consoles

    Dude, you are playing a RTS not performing robotic brain surgery; 100ms ping isn’t shit. I used to own ranked matches on dial-up. Blaming lag for a loss is a sign of a shitty player. My previous comment stands, you not playing will only make everyone else’s experience better. Less QQ I have to...

    Starcraft 2 - no LAN, no consoles

    Internet : Serious Fucking Business. LAN made Starcraft because the game was released 11 years ago and there were no other options back then. Hell, I remember playing Starcraft on dialup, no prob. In 2009 though, where the hell are you guys that you don’t have internet? Last time I recall not...

    Whats the most difficult game you've played?

    I remember some older games being hard, Lion King for Genesis comes to mind, but it was more about getting lucky with the timing rather than actual difficulty. I know you said single player but, the hardest thing I have done in a game in recent memory was a raid mob in EQ2. I think the zone was...
