    Do you expect full backwards compatibility for next-gen consoles?

    I'd call that "free ports" than backwards compatibility. Xbox One didn't have an iota of backwards compatibility when it was released, it was Microsoft's deliberate efforts behind the scenes to recoup the market share it had. And, I personally wouldn't classify 25% compatible titles as...

    Check Clockspeeds and Benchmarks Before Buying a Gaming Laptop

    1060 is a nightmare to compare. 1060 6GB and mobile uses the same chip 1060 3GB desktop uses a cut chip 1060 3GB mobile uses the same chip as 1060 6GB

    Mass update on steam

    I had 80 games that required updates, PITA but I got through them, only a few actually downloaded anything significant though.

    Nintendo President Says Switch Successor, Price Cut Not Currently Being Considered

    First I have heard of it. You might have meant "New" 3DS, not 3DS XL in particular. The Original 3DS, 2DS and 3DS XL is made from the same original hardware under the hood, then a second set of consoles called New 3DS, New 3DS XL and New 2DS XL, which had hardware improvements, perhaps you...

    Do you expect full backwards compatibility for next-gen consoles?

    No. Consoles seems to start realising that if you offer backwards compatibility, you will not be able to sell you the game an n-th time. Even with Nintendo I don't have my hopes up at all. PS. I consider Xbox one's "backwards compatibility" closer to "free ports" than actual BC, since a stock...

    Nintendo President Says Switch Successor, Price Cut Not Currently Being Considered

    Is G-Sync still worth it? Seeking advice for monitor & GPU upgrades

    The way I chose my replacement monitor for my dead PG278Q was this: Choose the screen size and resolution first, that narrows down the search dramatically. If there is a choice, then determine panel type, then if it is curved or not. I chose 32" 1440p 144hz, so my panel type is fixed (VA), and...

    Grim Dawn Alpha starts tomorrow

    Hang on, doesn't the guy that respec your skill also let you respec constellations with aether shards? Or was that removed? Also, any idea on a good beginner Death Knight build? Most builds I read on forums seem to be end game builds.

    Are you ditching Steam in favor of Epic Store?

    No, I haven't ditched steam at all even when I have GoG/Origin installed on my computer. Even if Epic starts selling games on it that isn't sold on Steam, that is still no reason to "ditch" Steam, considering that the majority of my library is still there.

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    Well, after some really long thinking, I ended up not waiting for the drivers and got the 32GK850G. Kinda disappointed at how little difference the increased contrast made, but otherwise I am not too disappointed at the monitor, the colours came closer to my BL3201PT after calibration than my...

    Nvidia Expands G-Sync Support to Approved Adaptive Sync Monitors

    Forgive me if I am wrong, but wasn't the reason behind being able to enable G-Sync on laptop displays primarily because eDP already had VRR tech built into them as a power saving measure, so G-Sync was piggy backed on that tech, but no such thing existed for desktop computers (power saving...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    pcmonitor review does not mention any frame skipping with nVidia GPU. I know they used nVidia GPU since they made a perculiar observation with regards to gtg transition when they hooked it up to nVidia GPU. https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/lg-32gk850f/

    Nvidia Expands G-Sync Support to Approved Adaptive Sync Monitors

    And don't forget, they are giving us the option to manually enable it on unsupported monitors as well. Experience may vary, but at least it's not model lockout.

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    I know this is a very long shot, but has anyone here ever tried comparing F and G models while connected to an nVidia GPU and could share what monitor you'd prefer? Currently, the 2 models are costing less than $30 apart, and I own a GTX 1080, wondering if going for wide gamut/Blur reduction is...

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    I wouldn't say BenQ is a major G-Sync brand though. I actually noticed the number of TN monitors more than the manufacturers.

    Is it time for Nvidia to support Freesync?

    Fun part is, they are even giving us an option to manually enable VRR on monitors that failed their validation.

    https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2019/01/06/g-sync-displays-ces/ Not sure if this was posted, but nVidia just posted a list of FreeSync monitors to support VRR by drivers. The list is in one of the links in the blog, at the bottom of the table. Hell froze over, kinda EDIT: relevant part of the blog:

    What do you think of the newly released classic consoles?

    Taiwan too, which is where I reside. I wouldn't be surprised at all if none of the Famicom games I played back in the day were bootlegged, hell the console itself could have been bootlegged, since I don't ever remember seeing any official Famicoms coming with turbo buttons, but my Famicom does...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Playing the custom Odyssey campaign on SC2. I actually quite like these campaigns, might look into getting more of them. Oh, and hammering AI with Carriers/BCs (don't ask) (Persona 4 Golden feels neglected, considering I had playing a good 80H of it in the past month)

    This season I ended up switching from Soulwrest Necro to TR PF, and I honestly can say it played much better, and far less squishy. Problem is I still can't do T16 bosses lol.

    US has the Most Expensive Mobile Data Plans in the World

    Taiwan here. The normal basic price for unlimited mobile data plan in a major city is about US$17 a month (NT$499), with various promotions often undercutting this amount. I don't live in the country side, but generally the prices are not too different. This unlimited data plan is literally...

    PlayStation 5 Rumored to Sport Ryzen 8-Core CPU, Cost $500

    From what I have seen, casuals don't care about frame rates, they base their purchases on either word of mouth (which mostly won't mention how the game runs unless it runs really badly) or screenshots (which means graphics sell, not frame rates). PS4 Pro's handling convinced me that games will...

    PlayStation 5 Rumored to Sport Ryzen 8-Core CPU, Cost $500

    PS5 doesn't really need to be that much more powerful than PS4 pro to sell if they have the exclusives lineup for it, afterall, Switch sold record numbers despite having less power than even PS4/Xbox one, let alone their upgraded versions. Besides, I find arguing Xbox One vs PS4 on hardware...

    Start-Up Beats Major Players to Launch World's First Foldable Smartphone

    Saw this, I called it niche because it barely bends (as in you will have a huge bulge around the place where it bends, so if anything it consumes more space) and bends the wrong way, I would have preferred if they bent inwards so at least it protects the screen somewhat, this is asking for trouble.

    Apple Revitalizes the iPad Lineup and Announces New Mac Mini and MacBook Air

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Rakes in $725 Million Worldwide in Three Days

    Wouldn't mind that too much, though the opinion is biased because I don't touch MP. No Micros in SP campaign is still a good thing, pity about all the digital deluxe edition and the SP content gated behind them

    Chinese Game Ban is Fueling Steam Growth

    Most Asian countries have far less road space per car than the US, so it may be easy for a normal US driver to let a car pass before changing lanes, in Asia, you can expect that if you let that car pass, another will follow very closely (we tend to drive closer to the car in front than the US do...

    Android Security Updates are Now Mandatory

    Pixels getting updates frequently doesn't surprise me in the least, after all, it's Google's brand, so I would actually expect frequent updates as they are made available to Android. Same thing goes for Apple. The problem is the other 3rd parties that makes Android phones. My Asus ZF3D only got...
