    LG 48CX

    Companies like Apple are already blaming supply issues in China for missing their numbers next quarter. Although, having worked in capital markets before, I know from experience these companies will pile everything they can on these extraordinary events to excuse their performance. I recall LG...

    4790K @ 4K Bottleneck Issue?

    Interesting perspective, I just assumed NVDA would start with Ti model before introducing lower end. But to your point this release may be different than last time and we may not see Ti until early 2021. All I know I am getting Oled as soon as possible, been waiting very long time for a display...

    4790K @ 4K Bottleneck Issue?

    I had 4790K since 2014, and it has been one of the most amazing processors sitting in my setup for nearly 6 years. It is paired with 1080 Ti at 3440x1440 resolution, and I am aware that in certain instances it may act as a bottleneck in games. I plan on getting a 4K display (LG 48” OLED) and...

    LG 48CX

    I definitely did not expect these figures either, but now I understand better why LG would make these OLEDs so PC gaming centric. It may be a much bigger market than I originally thought.

    LG 48CX

    Interesting stats on PC monitor market, I did not realize 118 million PC monitors were shipped in a year. Another thing that I did not realize is that LG shipped 2.5M monitors in just one quarter (meaning they must sell nearly 10 million PC monitors in a year). Granted, most of these are lower...

    LG 48CX

    Given my preference to run games at native resolution, I suspect it will take 5 to 10 years for me to consider an 8K display. But who knows what will happen in that timeframe in VR space given potential achievments in foveated rendering coupled with other advances. Monitors themselves may become...

    LG 48CX

    That would be a perfect solution if it also extended, as it is height adjustable and can swivel.

    LG 48CX

    Looks like an interesting option, popular. this option also seems popular. However none of those allow for monitor to go up and down in height.

    Connected to this, has anyone researched best mounts that can provide most movement (in all directions). This is exactly how I plan to set up my cx once I get it. So I can adjust distance, height and tilt for whatever application I need.

    LG 48CX

    "LG Display has set the target of shipping over 6 million OLED TV panels for 2020, double last year's amount, its CEO has said." So this optimism leads me to believe they have manufacturing capacity lined up. I do wonder how much PC demand are they banking on. Will be interesting to see how...

    If history is any guide, looking at the price history of C9 OLED Series 55" in 2019, it looks like late August / September is when the price drops down to acceptable levels. This timing should coincide with Ampere GPU release anyway?

    LG 48CX

    Early review: https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/lg-cx-48-inch-oled-oled48cxpua Confirms 4 HDMI 2.1 inputs (three side and one rear) "LG has told me that the TV can do 120fps at 4K using 4:4:4 for greater colour depth." (once video cards supporting HDMI 2.1 are out.

    LG 48CX

    I hope it is safe to assume CX models will have HDMI 2.1? Pairing Ampere which should have 2.1 with this monitor will hopefully alleviate any bandwidth issues.

    If you look at Amazon 2019 55 inch c9 model was First Available: March 18, 2019.

    LG 48CX

    Great find thanks! Another confirmation 48" will get CX treatment + per specs in the link it will support gsync and freesync. I assume HDMI 2.1 is going to be standard for CX lineup as well. It looks like this may be an amazing monitor, so glad I waited for something like this.

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    Again, I was not referring to current PCIe 4.0 SSD advantages, but rather the developments over next few years. The links I shared earlier suggest industry leaders such as Intel and Samsung see benefit of PCIe 4.0 when it comes to SSD speed and performance. In fact, per link above, Intel is...

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    True, but I also want to somewhat futureproof with PCIe 4.0 (as I typically dont update CPUs / mobos often). May want an option to play with Maya or Cinema 4d or video editing. So as much as I would like to stick with Intel Zen 3 may seem like a smarter option.

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    I have been very happy with my 4790K for almost 6 years now. It feeds my 1080 Ti well in most cases, however, looking at benchmarks (even high res benchmarks) it may be becoming a bottleneck in certain instances especially in light of the fact that I will be upgrading to Ampere Ti once its out...

    LG 48CX

    I bought LG 34UM95 (21:9 3440x1440) back in 2014. Given the current sad state of PC monitors, I am thinking cx48 may be my best path in 2020. Upgrading to Ampere Ti (from 1080 Ti) should provide enough horsepower to move to 4k gaming (if the current performance rumors turn out to be true). And...

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    Used Intel my whole life since Amiga days (except for late 90s early 2000 when I briefly switched to AMD). Now it's finally time to replace my 4790k and it looks like I will be moving to Zen 3 once it's out. It will be also nice to future proof with PCIe 4.0 support. Can't believe Intel blew it...

    Diablo 4 - The Real Official Thread

    Grim Dawn would be amazing if the loot drops were comparable to Diablo. I just have way too many other things to do with my life than to grind for hours and hours for a legendary that is not even my class. Diablo has perfect loot drop frequency at least for my taste.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    My issue with buying the game is that I will be supporting a developer who clearly does not care about PC gamers and treats us as afterthought where we have to wait for years to play their games. There are way too many games out now to keep me occupied until Cyberpunk is out, so through their...

    Borderlands 3

    Is it just me or can stats / gun scores sometimes be misleading? Seems like the best way to actually figure out best guns is to use them? Also does anyone bother with green guns, there are so many of them so its super hard to try them all?

    I can believe it, me and my wife never pre-order a game - ever. This is first time we did something like this and do not regret it one bit. Sure optimization can be better and there are few bugs, but it has been an amazing experience so far. Will never understand those who base their view of...

    Rift S

    I pre ordered Rift S as well - will be my first entry into VR. Tired of waiting for true VR 2.0 experience as it may be a while until we get something radically better. Valve specs looks amazing but not worth nearly 3x premium (to me).

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    Really insightful thoughts, I actually noticed quite a few people on various forums liked Origins setting / environment more as well as the attention to detail. Quite a few even said that Origins world felt better crafted and had a less of a copy / paste feel of Odyssey.
