    Samsung Odyssey G7 HDR Color Depth Question

    Hey everyone, I've recently aquired the 27" G7 and I've stumbled across something rather odd in regards to HDR. I know the monitor is a true 8-bit display and supports 10bit through FRC, and I understand that FRC is temporal dithering. However I noticed if I force 8bpc through NVCP my HDR games...

    LG 48CX

    Thanks for the reply, that's awesome to hear. Edit: I found a 4 day old post on reddit claiming that the CX currently has a bug where 1080p won't run @ 4:4:4 but 1200p or 1440p will. Link If that's true I'd imagine it'll be fixed with a firmware update.

    LG 48CX

    For anyone who actually owns a CX, can you confirm if it can run 1080p@120hz 4:4:4? states that it can't, yet I've read posts claiming it worked on the C9. Also if it can run 1080p@120hz 4:4:4, can G-Sync + HDR be enabled together at that res? And my final question, does enabling...

    For those who use an air compressor to dust their keyboards - is a water trap necessary?

    While a water trap probably isn't necessary, I do like to run mine with a regulator to drop the pressure from the 120psi it comes out of the tank at. (I also have a water trap attached but it's more for painting with the airgun)

    Nvidia Releases "Creator Ready" RTX Drivers

    It would be interesting to see if these drivers somehow degrade performance in regular games compared to the regular drivers, but I don't understand why it would.

    Air Force Revs Up Production of Precision Bomb Dubbed "World's Largest Sniper"

    I believe most all the bombs from the first iraq war were laser guided bombs. These are GPS guided AFAIK. And you can never have too many BLU-129's.

    A "Legend" Reborn: Logitech Brings Back the MX518 Gaming Mouse

    This is definitely good news but I have to say my G502 is an excellent quality mouse. My original MX518 died from cable issues and while Logitech did replace it (3 times actually) I eventually moved to the G502 and it's lasted quite a few years so far.

    Some 1660 TI Models Could Have 3GB of VRAM

    Am I the only one who thinks "1660" is an absolute terrible name for a gpu? Has a really odd flow to it, and only 3gb is really not enough for 1080p in 2019, should keep that on the 1050.

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing: i9-9900K CPU Testing @ [H]

    Another great review thank you! I do have to say that after testing a lot of different graphics options I ran into a lot of stuttering, but after clearing the BFV's shader cache in the documents folder it seemed to have fixed it and also stopped the constant pop-in I was getting. Also it's worth...

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing - CPU Testing @ [H]

    In the conclusion you mention that using a 4 core CPU isn't really an issue in BF4, but aren't you running HT on the i7? I would really love to see some comparisons of it running as a simulated 4-core as my i5-2500k @ 4.5ghz and GTX 1080 (and now 2070) can't keep FPS above 30 when the action...

    "I Called Out a Counterfeit Item on Amazon. Then They Banned Me"

    While I don't know what kind of reviews were left, my Father told me he was banned from leaving reviews on Amazon after getting a clearly counterfeit item and stating as such in the review; This was probably 2 months ago. Kind of sad that their response to poor quality seems to be silencing...

    The End of Moore's Law Could Cause Performance Parity Between AMD and NVIDIA

    The reason GPU's are about adding cores is that graphics related tasks are easily parallelized where you can split up the work to as many 'cores' as we you want, while many tasks traditionally for CPUs just aren't able to be broken down and processed beyond one thread, such as pathfinding etc.

    Nvidia GeForce Game Ready Driver 399.24 WHQL Has Been Released

    I had to rollback to 398.82, was getting massive performance regression with the newest driver on evga 1080 ftw2. I know it's an older game, but I've been going through my steam library to finish up some games; in Syrian Warfare I was getting about 1/3rd the performance (50fps instead of 150).

    Nuclear Fusion Power Could Be Here by 2030, One Company Says

    Yes that is my point, if the reaction is not sustainable you're not harnessing anything for energy, you're just proving a concept which they have done many times.

    Nuclear Fusion Power Could Be Here by 2030, One Company Says

    Nuclear Fusion as a weapon is nothing new, it's been around since 1952; Thermonuclear bombs are fusion weapons. Harnessing pure fusion as a means for energy is what the challenge is.

    Samsung Plans 3nm Gate-All-Around FETs in 2021

    The naming scheme is also a little misleading as I believe after intel's 45nm process, the gate length and M1 half pitch are no longer used to determine node size. This page has some nice info on the 10nm process if you're interested.

    OK, This One is on Me

    This will definitely be a unique review for here. I've always been somewhat surprised in how much people will avoid spending on getting a quality chair or even bed. While even $1000 might sound like a lot for a chair, if you spend a lot of time sitting it will pay for itself many times over in...

    Retail 7700K Not Up to 5GHz - 3600MHz

    To be fair, those tests were done on Windows 7 where the scheduling treated all 'cores' identically, whether it's an actual core or a SMT core. Windows 10 has a greatly improved scheduler afaik.
