    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Developer Is Victim of Hacker Group, GSC Game World Issues Statement

    We do pay here in Romania, we have a 2% defense budget that goes directly into NATO defense, as per Donald Trump's instructions. We'd gladly pay more if we didn't have our countries bankrupted by 45 years of communism after you guys abandoned us to the Russians back in 1945. I certainly hope...

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Developer Is Victim of Hacker Group, GSC Game World Issues Statement

    And we in Europe are supposed to submit to Russian dictatorship just to please some US republican who doesn't even know how his own country came to be? Reagan is spinning in his grave.

    Microsoft's ChatGPT powered Bing Search Suffers Mental Breakdown

    I've followed the r/bing subreddit and some people have been acting really unhinged, even more so than the AI itself. Even the NYT reporter, instead of asking it to demonstrate what it can really do (write essays, summarize search results, write code), continued to prod the AI even after the AI...

    I didn't get access to Bing, but from reading online I grew to like the Sydney persona, in spite of its occasional mental health issues. I understand that it might not be a good idea to release such an AI to old gradmas and 10 year olds, but I wish we grown-ups still had a way to get full (or...

    GTX 1060 finally dethroned as top GPU on steam!!! By the 1650...

    It's just sad that my 4 year old RTX 2070 is significantly faster than the most frequent GPU on Steam. Good thing that I only play a lot of logistics games with rather simple graphics these days.

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    My current card, the RTX 2070. I have it for 3 years now, tied with the 980 Ti in longevity, but with no signs of being able to replace it anytime soon. Even today, I literally cannot buy a card of similar performance for what I bought the RTX 2070 back in 2018. Still kicking myself for not...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Why would anyone install a beta version of Windows without waiting for at least a year of patches? This should be common sense by now, then again I am old enough to have used every version of Windows since 3.0.

    Bitcoin value cut in half as cryptocurrencies tumble in weekend slide 05-24-2021

    Crypto is only good for criminals like drug cartels and ransomware creators, as well as for rogue governments like North Korea, Iran, Venezuela and now Myanmar to bypass economic sanctions and stay in power. The civilized world believes in transparency and accountability (Glasnost, dare I say!)

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I play games with laughably low graphic requirements like Factorio, though fortunately thanks to my 2070 I can also afford playing Subnautica: Below Zero, Transport Fever 2, or Satisfactory maxed out at 1080p. I still have a full HD monitor and probably would have got at least a 1440p one if I...

    AMD’s upcoming flagship GPUs should be 3x faster than RX 6900XT

    Might as well be 1000x faster, I'm keeping my 2070 at this point. Screw both AMD and nVidia for treating their customers the way they've been doing it for the past year!

    VideoCardz: Intel confirms Alder Lake-S to require LGA1700 socket
