    LG 48CX

    I am really torn on this TV as a monitor vs some other current and future monitors. I have a Radeon VII and a Threadripper 1920x CPU. I've been tinkering for fun with an LG UN7300 43 inch TV as a monitor and 4k is cool, running 3840x1620 ultrawide is cool sometimes as well. Seeing some reviews...

    New Sony XBR X950H

    I have been eyeballing the LG 49NANO85UNA. It is like the 48 inch CX OLED on a budget at around $680. Has the same video processor in it as the higher Nano 9 series LG, 120 Hz 4k with VRR, local dimming (unfortunately edge lit not full array), HDR, and HDMI 2.1. Seems like a winner and could...

    LG 48CX

    Seems like good news "LG has already confirmed that its 2020 OLED TVs will arrive with HDMI 2.1 and 100/120Hz refresh rates." Hopefully this also applies to the 48 and they are not dropping features on their smaller TVs like Samsung did with their QLEDs.

    55" LG C8 (€1,099) vs 55" Samsung Q9FN (€1,149)

    To avoid worrying about burn in get the Samsung. It should also support Freesync so that will give you a benefit over an OLED as well. I have a C8 at home, but it is my main TV and all we use it for is TV and Movie viewing. It is pretty rare for us to play games, but if we do it is normally only...

    144Hz Monitors pointless/useless?

    Sometimes it is nice to crank everything to max settings, but you have to wonder if you are even able to tell the difference. For instance shadow detail. I have never sat and looked at the detail of a shadow of someone (or NPC) I'm trying to shoot in a game, so player (or NPC) shadows are okay...

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    You didn't like Mists of Pokemon Farmville either? That was when I truly quit wow the first time, for all but the last months of the expansion. I think the game is best played in the last 4-6 months of an expansion, then you can see all the content quicker and easier and spend less monthly fees...

    "Captain Marvel" Trolled the Trolls with a $455M Global Launch

    That is the same review copy and pasted over and over... I actually saw the movie and while I kind of liked it, on the whole it was pretty bad. After so many super hero movies lately a lot of parts seemed like a setup for the audience to cheer and enjoy, but ultimately just fell flat. I was in...

    What's new in the Ultrawide monitor world?

    From what I've read of Nvidias freesync "gsync" support, you are better off having the 144 Hz model. That and a new firmware supposedly makes the response time amazing.

    What's new in the Ultrawide monitor world?

    The height of a 34 inch ultrawide is the same of a 27 inch monitor. Nothing ultrawide exists at the height of a 32 inch right now that I know of. I believe the 38 inch ultrawides are the height of a 30 inch.

    Samsung Unveils a Folding Smartphone

    I'll buy the "Pixel 5 Origami". This seems like a technology that the first generation looks cool, but you probably don't want to own it until 2nd or 3rd generation. Unless you are a rich tech junky that is, then have at it (someone needs to support it so we get gen 2, 3, etc.)

    What's new in the Ultrawide monitor world?

    Shorter. Even if it is wider your vertical screen real estate would be reduced. So if you played a game 16x9 aspect ratio you would just be rendering less and 1920x1080. There is a 1440 super ultrawide in the works though, but it won't be cheap. I think it is literally 5120x1440 which is two 27s...

    LG 55C8 problem in Game Mode

    So you notice this issue on a very specific 5% and 10% test, but when playing games do you actually notice the oval shape? Almost all IPS screens I have used over the last decade or longer have had some form of glow in the corners, but I never notice it when gaming so it isn't a concern for me.

    HRE Wheels and GE Additive Collaborate to Create the First 3D-Printed Titanium Wheel

    Going from 2560x1080 to 2560x1440 has had a bigger impact on performance than anticipated.

    Chances are pretty good that depending on the game(s) you play there are quality setting you won't notice if you drop them for more FPS. For example since you are playing at a higher resolution you can drop anti aliasing from 8x to 4x, or whatever your AA settings are. There could also be a draw...

    Volkswagen is Planning a $23,000 Tesla Competitor

    I'm just curious in what ways the STI is more satisfying to drive? The R has Dynamic Chassis Control so you can tweak the ride. Are you going between Standard/Sport/Comfort/Custom modes or did you set it and forget it (maybe in comfort)?

    AMD Q3 2018 Earnings Release

    Most stocks normally hit their old highs eventually unless the company truly isn't doing well. Pretty sure with Ryzen 2, Epyc 2, and even possibly some graphics card options next year I think we are in for a good 2019.

    NVIDIA Controls AIB Launch and Driver Distribution @ [H]

    I think what you don't realize here is how Nvidia and AMD work with game developers in different ways. A game developer may try to cut corners and write sloppy code to get things done sooner. Nvidia hand holds and tweaks their drivers to maintain performance until the developer can get around...

    Court Rules on Merits of IP Address Identification in Open WiFi Case

    I always wondered with these types of cases are they upset you downloaded it once for yourself, or for distribution to others? Then if the case was they were mad you distributed it to others they would have to prove you gave an entire copy to one person. If someone downloads 10% of a movie from...

    Tick Tock - #BeForeTheGame

    I didn't read anything about immersion or realism from anyone concerning ray tracing. Just watching the demo it was night and day seeing the reflections of fire in puddles on the ground and in windows. This isn't really a huge game changer as far as pushing types of games or anything like that...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Gen 2 Full Specs and Availability

    I got a 1920X with a future upgrade in mind. The 2950X looks appealing, wouldn't even need to overclock it for games if it Turbo boosts up to 4.4 GHz. That would probably be better than my all core 4.1 GHz overclock I have right now. So do I build a micro atx machine for my wife with the 1920X...

    Seminole Tax Collector Begins Accepting Bitcoin as Payment

    Unreal Engine and Vulkan Better Suited for AMD

    AMD driver programmers are more "by the book" or "do it the right way" than nvidia's "make it work" or "bandaid fixes". This also applies to game Developers where AMD will tell the developer they need to write their game correctly compared with nvidia who will just patch a driver to bandaid fix...

    NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display

    When Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are supporting G-sync or some other framerate smoothing technology then we'll know it has caught on.
