    Tesla Announces $45,000 Model 3 with 260 Mile Range

    I'll stick with my 2017 Focus RS, thanks. I paid $50k CAD for it, and it feels like I got my money's worth and more. The thing I immediately noticed in my boss' P100D - the materials quality is bargain basement. That car wasn't worth the $175k CAD she paid for it. The interior of the car...

    CaseLabs Announces It Has Been “Forced into Bankruptcy and Liquidation”

    LOL @ people complaining about hardware costs on [H]. Where did all these budget minded 'tards come from? I didn't think they were the target demographic of [H]ardOCP. GTFO of here with that shit. I thought my next case would be a CaseLabs product when I "outgrew" my Core X9. It's a crying...

    BioWare Employee Celebrates and Mocks TotalBiscuit’s Death

    Who fucking cares? Totalbiscuit was a douche, and this guy is a douche. He is happy Bain died, and he's allowed to be. He's allowed to throw a "HOORAY THAT TOTALBISCUIT DOUCHE IS DEAD!" party because his opinion is valid, his feelings are valid, and fuck everyone who is trying to silence him...

    Ford is Cutting Car Production Back to Just Mustang and Focus Active Models

    I've driven the new mustangs, and I can't understand why they're popular. They're heavy, huge, and squishy everywhere. They're a middle of the road grand touring car, not a performance car. I agree you get a lot of car for the money, though.

    Ford is Cutting Car Production Back to Just Mustang and Focus Active Models

    That's sad. I have a 2017 Focus RS and it's an incredible machine (head gasket issue notwithstanding). I've never smiled so much driving a car before in my life.

    Dell and HP Resist the NVIDIA GPP Leash - So Far

    First, I'm a straight up NV fanboy. I have nothing against AMD, but I've used NV products since riva tnt days. What NVidia is doing with the GPP is unconscionable. If they don't pull a 180 on this program my next GPU will be AMD.

    Sensor Tracks Who Is Driving in Your Neighborhood

    So contact your local law enforcement and ask them to set up a speed trap in the school zone. I've done that very thing here many times, and it works. Speeding through my neighborhood has dropped dramatically since they started setting up the traps. Invading the privacy of everyone is not how...

    Sensor Tracks Who Is Driving in Your Neighborhood

    Sure, but you CAN'T set up that logging across an entire city yourself. You won't be able to track which neighborhoods a car is entering or leaving, and cross reference that against another person's database. At least here in Canada you would QUICKLY run afoul of privacy laws (the way it...

    Sensor Tracks Who Is Driving in Your Neighborhood

    Oh hell no. This is a private company spying on and logging private citizens' movements. How can this even be legal? If this shit ever comes North of the border you can bet your ass I'm writing some representatives.

    Kim Dotcom’s Extradition Appeal Concludes

    Or maybe he knows the whole damned process is bought and paid for, and he doesn't want any fucking part of it. No, it couldn't be that... clearly the US court system is 100% fair. It never tries to make an example of someone. It definitely never does that when there are clear corporate...

    Facebook Tells Judge It Takes Terroristic Threats Seriously

    It seems like this judge has a pretty fucking high opinion of himself. I'm not sure someone so clearly ego driven should be presiding over anything.

    Apple Defends Decision To Remove 3.5mm Headphone Jack, Cites “Courage”

    I spoke to our office manager; only 3 out of 80 people are taking the "upgrade" to the iPhone 7 in our office. Almost every person that said "no" did so because there is no headphone port. It may be a small sample, but our company has been getting the latest/greatest Apple phone for the past 4...

    Silicon Valley's Bloody Plant Burger Smells, Tastes And Sizzles Like Meat

    My God, being vegan or vegetarian must be exhausting... you can't seem to eat anything without a backstory or moral anecdote to accompany it. I like to just sit down and eat without analyzing the supply chain of my meal. Meat and potatoes for me!

    GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 FE Overclocking Review @ [H]

    All true. I still love these cards. I'm sure I'll love whatever the Pascal version of them is just as much. :D

    GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Overclocking Review @ [H]

    Of course it's not a surprise. It would be nice to see the numbers, though. Preferably without buying the cards and performing the comparison myself.

    GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Overclocking Review @ [H]

    If you push a TITAN X (or 980ti) balls to the wall, is a 1070 still considerably faster? I bet it's not, or by a lot less than you'd expect. The rumblings on teh interweebs seem to indicate big Maxwell closes the gap considerably at high clock speeds. Any chance we'll see an article that...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition Preview @ [H]

    Asking for 1080p reviews of high end cards is asinine, though. This is HardOCP, not MundaneOCP. Besides, if you're really that serious about "smooth gaming" you'd have bought an adaptive sync display and the card to support it. Staying at 1080p "for the frame rate" is just stupid.

    Original Doom Level Remade In New Doom

    Epic fail if they were trying to recreate the map; zero similarities. Maybe it's the colour palette.

    Anyone Getting Their DOOM On?

    Not exactly new to OpenGL (been using it since minigl on my voodoo) but you have to admit this is the best example we've seen in a l-o-n-g time. The performance is a bit of a double edged sword. I can't see any reason for [H] to add this to their testing suite.

    Anyone Getting Their DOOM On?

    What wizardry is this? 90fps+ @ 3440x1440 on a single TITAN X, I expected this game to be a lot more demanding! I *love* the performance overlay. Well done, id.

    Anyone Getting Their DOOM On?

    I picked it up on CDKeys for $46.99 CAD using DOOM666 as my coupon code.
  26. Daroller


    Not likely. It probably won't be any faster than my TITAN X cards in games on a monitor, 3440x1440 resolution. I am skipping VR this generation, so based on the information available right now I have zero reason to buy 1080 SLI. I'll wait for big Pascal at the earliest, and I'll probably skip...

    NVIDIA Founders Edition Cards - Yea or Nay? @ [H]

    You must pay if you want to play. If you want the best you need to be spend more. If you want it before everyone else, you'll spend even more than that. It only gets worse if you want quality guarantees. (if you think this "tax" is bad, you should see the premiums Ford dealerships are asking...

    Overwatch Butt Pose Replaced With Another Butt Pose

    Is the problem that she's wearing tight pants? If she were wearing baggy pants would anyone have said anything about the original pose? Yoga pants strike again... She's wearing a bodysuit. There's not much they can do to avoid showing her butt.

    Feds Unlock iPhone 5C Used By San Bernardino Terrorist

    They aren't inherently more secure; they also aren't in the news. I'm not saying it's logical (I didn't make the decision), but it's the way the market works. The FBI has *already* done major damage to Apple.

    Feds Unlock iPhone 5C Used By San Bernardino Terrorist

    Our company is in the process of switching our corporate iPhones to android devices because of this whole brouhaha. Our US offices made the switch to Android devices less than 1 week after this case started. Many of our clients have already done the same. We're a Canadian company, based in...

    Problems with stock blower fan on Titan X

    I already voided the warranty by putting the hybrid cooler on, so either way I'll wind up paying to fix it. Given the choice I'd rather do it myself.

    Problems with stock blower fan on Titan X

    Sorry for the delay between updates, but it's road trip season. :D Reflashing the card didn't make a difference, unfortunately. I'm waiting for the adapter cables so I can test the fan itself; I'll update when those arrive.

    Problems with stock blower fan on Titan X

    I'm hoping someone here can help me troubleshoot a problem I'm having with my system. One of my Titan X blower fans no longer spins up until the card gets good and hot (GPU above 62c). When it does finally spin up it's usually after the card has been under load for 15+ minutes. It spins up...

    Is Paying For Antivirus A Waste Of Money?

    This is my story too. My wife and 2 kids have questionable habits with their computer. Norton's product suite has been successfully protecting them from themselves for years, and its monthly reports never fail to show multiple threats being handled by the software. That's worth the money to...

    President Signs Bill Making Internet Service Tax Ban Permanent

    From the outside looking in both of your major parties are super right wing. Your leftmost party would be ultra right conservatives up here in Canada. I don't understand how Americans are so blinded to this. You don't have any progressive parties. I'm sure there's a word for a group of...
