    PC Deidicated For VR Gaming

    CPU clock speed is probably more important than cores. My 6600k @ 4.6 is a nice pair with the 1080ti for vr. However, if you are planning on wireless or streaming, that changes everything.

    Real-Time Ray Tracing Support Comes to GeForce GTX GPUs and Game Engines

    my 1080ti ran them with raytracing. like it says no dlss. the justiice demo allows to switch rtx on/off. its a slideshow at 4k, but 1080p is almost liveable

    Are there 4k HDR options other than the $2k Asus PG27UQ?

    samsung panels are in the 20ms area for hdr game mode, close enough for me

    144 is the new 60?

    So what other meaningless things would also show this bump in k/d...RGB case lighting, cost of pc, number of games owned, amount of snacks consumed, beverages drank, total farts released, anything indicating an increase in time played right?

    10 bit/HDR on Windows. Is it Fixed? Nvidia?

    Mad vr is a upscaler renderer addon for most players. Think codec for hdr

    10 bit/HDR on Windows. Is it Fixed? Nvidia?

    Pc mode on hdr TVs seems to be an rgb compatibility mode, and disables any hdr on my set. It is my understanding that movies max out at 4:2:2. For gaming I use 4:2:2 same with movies using madvr to render hdr. Normal desktop I toggle off HDR in windows.

    Radeon VII: Buy first, read reviews later

    I want to be an amd guy. I really do. but ive had my 1080ti for 2 years and this is the first card to compete, but its 2 years later and the same price and performance as my 2 year old card. I really dont understand. I guess I want to be an ATI guy. But that ship sailed.

    Need educated guesses on when 2180ti will be out?

    Someone gave me good advice once. They said buy a video card after each console release. My lineup went, radeon, radeon 9700, gtx 8800, (missed the 290), 1080ti. Can't say he was wrong.

    One-Year Update: OLED Burn-in Test

    Kind of a crappy test. Does not look like HDR was tested at all and a max brightness of 200 nits.

    Underwater Survival Game "Subnautica" Is Currently Free on the Epic Games Store

    grabbed it yesterday myself. seems to boot straight into VR. had a lot of problems setting up the controller but after fudging around kinda got it working. Epic launcher hates my wireless ds4 adapter. but it is a nice vr experience for sure.

    Bethesda Bans Fallout 76 Players for Life after Shocking In-Game Homophobic Attack

    Love 76. Just hit level 100 today, about the same in hours. Seems like a very considerate player base. Glad to see bethesda stand behind that type of community. I have avoided mp games for years and enjoy the hell out of this one.

    Help me buy a tv

    I went with the qled myself as a monitor, but for regular use I recommend the SONY x900. It is an easy to recognize name for the non-tech friends that are asking, and sits in a very good position for tech. For some more savings TCL is nice but getting the right model is more confusing. Same...

    Fallout 76

    I don't get the level of hate? The game is missing a lot of PC specific features. Aren't they really just the little adjustments though? It is not a Single Player game. A lot of these things, like FOV, would give the player an advantage in a MP game. Personally I had to redownload, that...

    How impractical is a $3000 build?

    if water cooling is a thing, make sure ekwb makes a waterblock for your specific videocard. some venders change stuff up. a $20 212 evo air cooler is plenty for most cpu's to maintain very close to their max frequency (just does not look as interesting) but that 1080ti runs faster the cooler it...

    Triple screen or one large one for gaming?

    A little late but I was referring to using a 3840x2160 regular type tv with a 3840x1440 resolution and black bars. Best of both, easy to go back to space for work. If a game supports Fov I always prefer this. I feel like my 55 is too tall for a gaming monitor at a desk and get neck strain, but...

    Triple screen or one large one for gaming?

    3 displays for racing is great, support can be lacking, but nothing like angle adjusted surround screens. vr is nice for head tracking but the res is not there like triples. Gaming wise, my 55" 4k is almost too tall, so ultrawide resolution is possible and makes up some from the surround...

    SEC Charges Tesla CEO Elon Musk with Fraud for Irresponsible Social Media Posts

    Simplistic yes. Musk was concerned about the rumors these guys propagated, mostly around the 3 launch. He went on a few week bender complaining about short sellers. Then pulled this rabbit out of his hat, and it was no longer an issue. I don't think this happened without reason. not some...

    SEC Charges Tesla CEO Elon Musk with Fraud for Irresponsible Social Media Posts

    A group of people got together and figured out how to make money on stocks that performed poorly, short sellers. They had gotten in tight with tesla and made money when they lost money. I would not like it if someone profited off of my loss, neither did he. This one statement messed those...

    Researchers Develop 2D Spray On Antennas

    I used to make (manufacture) microwave antennas. The engineer admitted he had no clue how to design an antenna. The whole industry seems to work on a "this is what seems to work" basis. anything other than the normal "multiple of the desired wavelength" is trial and error. any attempts ive...

    T-FORCE VULCAN & G.SKILL Flare X AM4 Overclocking @ [H]

    I think it is great to see these tests. Yes I do want to know if I should overclock vs. tighten my timings. I like seeing reviews not specifically about a single product, but about maximising your own performance.

    Elon Musk Smokes Weed in Podcast

    Elon Musk is higher that just about anybody all the time. Ever made something cool and show it off? Ever impress someone with your fancy car? Using drugs is just the lazy way to get high, that man must walk around with more happy neurotransmitters than a rave full of normies. Smoking weed...

    Battlefield V

    i joined origin access. i get to do the beta early, and play the back catalog of ea games i never bought. worth the $15 as for the beta i turned settings down to medium and it plays nice online. First day was fun, now its a camp fest.

    I voted no. It is good practice to buy street items anyway, no "golden samples" that way. If it was me, I'd sign it. I'm frugal. But I don't do reviews.

    HDR? Why is everyone going completely bonkers for this?

    I went from 1080p straight to 4K HDR so I had a significant WOW factor. Everyone in the house can tell when I do find a good HDR source, but there are so few good sources so far. Without HDR content, there is almost no difference. The few games I have that support it look amazing though.

    Steam Link $2.50

    I am actually using mine right now. I moved my pc to the living room for VR. I use steam link almost exclusively for non-VR stuff. Best setting to change is hidden under streaming / advanced options / start streaming desktop. As soon as it connects it is at desktop, no big picture at all...

    It's time for 4k! Samsung q7?

    Don't know where that c came from not buying a corvette! I guess I should have listed some concerns. If I get rambowed color banding I'll be sad. The lack of localized dimming on this panel has me looking around. As well as good safe oled options

    It's time for 4k! Samsung q7?

    About to take the plunge to 4k land. Intended use, living room, lots of video games, some movies. 444 chroma and hdr10 seem to be the big things to check for. I'm not thinking oled because of kids using it on consoles. The Samsung q7f is looking like the way I'll go. But I would like...
