    Today's Battlefield V Patch Adds DLSS and Optimizes Ray Tracing

    To say its a performance boost is a bit disingenuous on Nvidia's part. It only has a performance benefit because "4k" dlss is really 1440p +AA. If you compare it to 1440p with no AA, it takes a performance hit, just like any other AA method.

    NYC Politician Wants to Ban Cashless Restaurants

    Apparently you don't understand what a debt is. It's when you owe money. Refusal to sell doesn't create a debt. I'll make an example, a car dealership isn't required to accept payment in pennies, because there is no debt incurred. A city parking fine can't refuse cash, because that is a debt...

    Mom Defends Her Fortnite Cheating Offspring in Court

    If a minor set my car on fire, and the mom argued that the minor didn't have permission to play in my driveway, shouldn't I be able to take action against said minor?

    Easy Does It – The Case for Lowering The Difficulty

    I find the guys writing atrocious but largely agree with his point. Put it to the setting that makes you most happy. If normal is frustratingly hard, lower the difficulty. I do wonder though if lowering difficulty at the first sign of challenge isn't robbing him of some of the joy of...

    The Xbox One X 4K Blu-ray Player Is a Disaster

    My xbox one s works great as a 4k media player. Why would the newer one do worse?

    Samsung Officially Unveils $499 Odyssey Virtual Reality Headset

    I'm super pumped for higher rez, but will modern graphics cards be able to pump out 90fps for 2 1440X1600 screens?

    Star Wars: Jedi Challenges First Look

    Seems like fun, but why pay 200 dollars for a crummy VR that only plays a few star wars mini-games? 200 extra bucks would get you the upcoming windows VR headsets.

    Google Working on Secret VR OLED with 10 Times the Pixels of Current Displays

    I'd rather have 40 mega pixel, 90 fps games with only the fidelity of half life 2 than the current implementation. 30 fps, 2 megapixel consoles will always have more processing room for effects and polygons, so better to deliver on what is unique about VR.

    Learning to Let Go of Framerate Anxiety Made Me Love PC Gaming Again

    I can only see it being a problem if people take a long time tweaking and get mad/aggravated with it. For me, it is fun. I love PC gaming, because I get to decide what works for me. I hate jagged lines, but am ok with a lower frame rate. I generally start on 4k ultra, and then drop settings...

    Rumor Mill: Intel Core-i9 CPUs to Appear Soon - Lots of Cores

    This is the textbook example of an anticompetitive business practice. You can't abuse your market position to drive competitors out of business.

    Star Citizen Raised $148 Million from Fans, but Now It’s Raising Concerns

    I appreciate the creators sentiment, but maybe an amazing 10 or 40 million dollar game would be better than a 140 million dollar boondoggle that never gets finished.

    72% of Windows 10 Users use Cortana Less than Once a Month

    I hate windows (and tech in general's) approach to not letting us disable or uninstall things. I don't want a cortana and xbox app on my operating system. Why am I forced to have these things? I especially hate having her live on my taskbar, but at least I could remove her from that.

    HTC Vive Getting Eye Tracking First

    Wouldn't it be better to spend that $220 on a better gpu? That way you'd get better performance out of VR too.

    Amazon Granted 'Photography Against A White Background' Patent

    I love this site for most articles, but they don't seem to understand patents at all. This isn't a patent on "photography against a white background". Check what it really covers: 1. A studio arrangement, comprising: a background comprising a white cyclorama; a front light source positioned...

    Literally See the 360-degree World Around You

    Good and valid point. Since we still only have two eyes, it would make us much like cows, with side facing eyes. As a weird side thought, wouldn't it be possible to have a 3 eye creature with eyes 120 degrees apart that could have both 360 vision and depth perception? "depth perception"...

    Jury Says Apple iPhone Violated Three Patents

    Rather then highlighting this as the pinnacle of a good patent, I was attempting to illustrate that it is rather more specific then someone might get at cursory review. Would you at least agree "lol dumb patent office thinks alarm clocks on phones are new" is a lazy attempt to analysis or...

    Jury Says Apple iPhone Violated Three Patents

    I don't think this is a very good idea. Part of the point of the patent system is that you never have to reduce to practice. If you are a brilliant basement inventor, but lack the start up capital to build a new, let's say, super efficient engine, then you can sell your idea to the auto...
