    Microsoft Announces Variable Rate Shading Support for DX12

    Why would you want to waste resources on something a human is typically incapable of perceiving. The light spectrum is infinite but we more or less stopped at 1.07bn colours from a 32-bit palette and no one is asking for more.

    What If Zen 2 Actually Sucks?

    It's a good video, but I do agree with the premise that everything so far makes it difficult to make a bad case for the processor outside of sand bagging the release or having stock issues. Even if the thing draws parity with the 9900K and lower end HEDT parts it should start a decent price...

    A Tour of Deepcool's Fan Factory

    Shenzen is the digital equivalent of Detroit at it's height. A whole city centralized around the production of a specific product segment. All of the supply chains feed into there and uprooting them at this point would a needlessly costly exercise.

    Rotten Tomatoes Bans "Want to See" Score, User Comments before Films' Release

    I'm so entirely drained by the endless series of wing nut outrages at this point, there are more important things in life than yet another Marvel movie.

    "Door Handles Wouldn't Work": Tesla Driver Dies in Burning Car after Crash

    At some point the media will get over reporting on every single instance where a Tesla is involved in a collision. 10 bucks says at least 3 Fords also caught fire today after a crash.

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    I feel like maybe if you flashed it with the EVGA vbios it might unlock that, it's functionally the same PCB and they have full control over their lighting when hooked up to the header.

    WHQL 419.17 Driver Released. "Game Ready" for Anthem, DiRT Rally 2.0

    There is actually a feature within gsync (frametime compensation) which will not activate while vsync is disabled. Having it enabled from NVCP is the best option.

    GOG Ends Its Fair Price Package Program

    Well they could always pull the saving throw of removing all of The Witcher titles from other services and locking Cyberpunk to GOG only but I doubt that would be very popular.

    Metro Exodus Settings and APIs Tested

    I've been playing a little myself. 3440x1440 on Ultra with RTX High (No DLSS, unsupported for Ultra Wide), perfectly smooth. This is an RTX implementation I can genuinely get behind, the lighting is very transformative which is a stark contrast to BFV's reflection usage. Digital Foundry put...

    AMD Radeon VII Unboxing and Teardown Video @ [H]

    Good looking unit, the direct contact for the power delivery is also good unlike the 2080 Ti FE reference which needlessly sandwiches the 2 layers of pads and putty plus the base plate between the VRM and the vapor chamber making it basically worthless.

    They really need bigger than a 120mm rad on that thing. I get that they're going for universal compatibility but at least offer a 140/240/280 option. The pump does appear to be a standard Asetek design however the cold plate is custom. In theory you could tear down the AIO in that and...

    Yeah a small amount of air is all they reall need. Nvidia's braying about a full coverage vapor chamber is semi hog wash as none of the power delivery or memory components actually make direct contact. It's all transmitted through the based plate via 2 layers (both sides) of thermal putty and...

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    I don't have a measurement on them, there is a side intake pulling in air over that side of the card and small 40mm fan mounted at the rear at the level of the GPU to pull hot air away. Edit: Also the FE VRM is so ludicrously overbuilt that the total heat output of the VRM on that side under...
