    Radeon RX 5600 XT Launch Review Round Up

    Soooo.... instead of letting people like us just flash the bios a la 5700 to 5700xt, AMD provided the path themselves, officially, minutes before launch. That’s how I’m looking at it. Pretty close to 5700 level performance.

    Issue(s) with PCIe 4.0 & PCIe extension cables...?

    Was able to complete a run of Firestrike - my score was more than halved from ~23000 to just below ~11000. Also noticed my GPU fans were not spinning during the entire test - fun to watch. Rechecked my power connections from the PSU to GPU, re-ran the test and had the same result. Shut it...

    Issue(s) with PCIe 4.0 & PCIe extension cables...?

    Not to revive an old thread, but I'm reviving an old thread. I just moved my system from an old Antec case to a Fractal Design R6 and added their PCIE riser. I'm running NVME Raid with 2 Sabrent drives and I'm getting video errors while using the Fractal Design riser. First boot reset my...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    Was having a great time with the campaign, seems that dev error 6328 is now preventing my rig from firing up the cinematic before the Hometown stage. Rest of the game is playable but it refuses to load the next level. Anyone know what 6328 means specifically? Back to The Outer Worlds for now.

    Navi RX 5700 to 5700 XT BIOS Flash

    Just flashed my Sapphire Pulse 5700 to XT. Used the Windows GUI, no issues. Gained 1000 points on Firestrike normal. Will see what Modern Warfare does to it in about 25GB... Sails through Modern Warfare @ 4K, settings cranked. ~50FPS average is what it feels like. I wouldn't play...

    Call of Duty benchmarks?

    Came here looking for member benchmarks, I am disappoint. The original Modern Warfare is the last I played in the series. 42GB left to go on the download before I play the new one on my new rig. Edit - Just played the first 4 or so missions at 4k, settings cranked. Couple hitches but way...

    Gran Turismo Sport

    It'd be great if I could actually play this game. Every time I get a free moment to fire the thing up, I'm able to clear some of the crappy stop and start license style tests and then the severs go down and I can only play arcade. Getting fed up with that facet of the experience already...

    Huawei’s New Quick Charge Tech Can Charge Smartphone To 50% In Five Minutes

    I'm pretty happy with Qualcomm's Quickcharge 2.0 on my Sony Xperia Z5 Compact... would be even happier with faster... ...even though I don't see battery charge values under 60% at the end of the day, ever. :D

    Android Wear Getting Cellular Support, New Wrist Gestures, And Audio Feedback

    I've been wearing my Moto360 since it's launch last summer, never leave home without it. Battery life has dramatically improved since the beginning; two hours of driving to work and back each day and an eight hour shift, I arrive back at home with 60%+ of battery life. I run ARUnchained in...

    Surface Book

    Does anyone know what nVidia GPU they have in this thing? Massively interested if it's mid to high end... ...I'm worried, since the information seems impossible to come by at this time.

    Ps4 NHL 15

    I haven't bought a PS4 yet but this was going to be the game that finally got one into my house... looks like I'm not buying into the next gen for a while longer. If I just wanted to play BAP or Be a GM, is it doable? That 21-3 score is pretty concerning... what difficulty, Droc?

    For once a nice looking smartwatch: Moto 360

    I own this watch, just bought it yesterday after winning 2k at Fallsview Casino. Ha ha, would never have bought it otherwise. Battery life seems ok so far, not sure why I'd want a ton of horsepower on my wrist and the resolution is 'good enough'. It fashionably tells the time and allows me...

    PS4, 10 million sold

    That's 100% of the reason I haven't bought one yet. Even without a decent games library, I'd still have a PS4 sitting here if I could stream media akin to or better than with my PS3. Oh well.

    Today at my local Target

    I really want a PS4, but with the exception of Child of Light there are no games out for the system that really intrigue me. Coupled with the still-absent DNLA streaming and the price increase here in Canada... pulled the e-brake. Lots of stock in and around the GTA right now.

    Macbookpro Chokes Hard on Steam

    Considering that I have absolutely no issues launching Steam and playing Civilization 5 on my 2013.5 MBA 11 with an I5 and 4GB of RAM, I'm calling out your HDD even though I think there are other problems with your system too. You don't mention any actual attempts at playing games, so can we...

    What did I miss out on in the FF series?

    While I'm a huge fan of V and VI, I cut my teeth on IV. I've played through VII but not VIII, IX, X, XI, XII...blame it on my love for PC Gaming; I didn't own a console during the PS2/Xbox era. I've almost completed XIII but as much as I loved the graphics and sounds, the gameplay is...

    IGN: VERSUS - PS4 & Xbox One

    I saw a kid playing an absolutely shit-brown Super Nintendo the other day in Mandalay, Burma. Super Mario 3 is awesome no matter where, when or how it's played. Anyways, haven't looked in on a console war thread in a while. ha ha ha ha. Enjoy the games!

    Former PC folks who switched?

    I bought a MBA a week or so ago having never owned or really even used any Apple products in my 32 years. I like it a lot and didn't really feel like there was any uncomfortable learning period. It's a computer with icons and menus. Switching away from Windows isn't an option for me, as I...

    New MBA

    Definitely bringing my camera(s), GoPro Hero2 and Fuji X10. No SD reader on the 11" MBA, though. I can use the GoPro as a hub but I don't have the cables for the Fuji. Found a little SD-->USB3 adapter for 10 bucks that I'm going to try out. I took pictures with just my Xperia Arc last year...

    R.I.P. PS3 60GB w/ BC

    My gen2 40GB died about 2 hours after putting in GTA5. Definite system killer for those of us who have older systems. My cooling fan would never calm down for 2 years now while playing ha ha.

    New MBA

    Thanks eh, that list of OS X shortcuts is just what I was looking for! I've got a multi-port converter of medium quality which worked last year when necessary; though even as remote as I got, I didn't have one instance where I needed it. Did you take a computer with you through Europe? This...

    So... GTA V...

    I don't know if any members of Rockstar visit our gaming forum or if it's been mentioned before but, 1) Where is my iFruit Android app? and 2) Give me my Android app now. Actually, not now. Right now. In other news, wicked game.

    New MBA

    I just bought my first Apple product ever, an 11" MBA. I'm heading to Southeast Asia backpacking and was considering traveling with my Alienware M11X R2 - until I test packed and felt the weight of my gear. Yikes. Firstly, the battery life on this MBA is phenominal and as advertised. The...

    Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    Picked this up today, played about 5 hours so far and I'm really enjoying it. It's definitely going to pull me away from completing P4G, I'll be sticking to strictly portable situations for that now. The graphics/animation/music combo is fantastic and like others have mentioned, I wish there...

    Making an HFS+ Drive from Windows 7

    OK I'll rephrase what I'm after. I need to be able to share this HFS+ drive with my WIndows 7 install and my Aunt's MBP. Is that possible?
