    Arstechnica: The Mandalorian was shot on a holodeck-esque set with Unreal Engine, video shows

    They run this on a GTX 680? I did read something about a Matrox-Nvidia collaboration somewhere. Matrox being a the leader in driving large/composite displays and Nvidia being Nvidia.

    Is VR even worth it?

    Does this one work with anything outside its own ecosystem? Separate question do any of them work with MMO/RPG games including ESO, City of Heroes, WOW, etc? Though COH I think would be hard with a controller vs keyboard. Can the headsets simulate very big screen monitors for arpg's like Path...

    AMD Chipset Drivers 2.01.15.2138

    Was reading on my phone in the ER waiting for the DR. Little distracted. Further "Been refreshing the page for many many days, and finally excited see a new Chipset driver for the X570 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" can mean either just for the x570 or including the x570.

    Researchers Create Non-Volatile Memory as Fast as DRAM and 100x as Efficient

    Dont forget bubble memory. Still neat idea (both the bubble memory and this). I could see having 6 or 8 dimm slots some for volatile memory and some for virtual/windows/system memory which if done correctly could get us the benefits of both and maintain security.

    It still looks reasonably good.

    Any 2080ti owners playing City of Heroes at 4k?

    The engine is not well optimized for anything newer then a GTX 680 and while 4k works, it does not go fast. I manage about 20 fps with settings maxed. For a MMO that is typically good enough as long as things stay smooth with no stuttering still it could be better and some environments drop the...

    Any 2080ti owners playing City of Heroes at 4k?

    What I am asking is if anyone knows the FPS - I prefer to make my own mind up. Posting messages from another forum where I also didnt get an answer doesnt really help.

    Any 2080ti owners playing City of Heroes at 4k?

    If so, with AA/AF off and everything else maxed what kind of FPS are you getting? Please and thank you.

    The sound is clear and distinct. My last speakers I preferred my headset. Now I worry about the volume downstairs.

    x16 -> x8

    Ya, it is a bit of a pain ti fish up in win 10. The weird thing is the Xonar App stays stuck on 2 channels the whole time and only has an option for 7.1 and I needed to click that before it gave me the digital option. It all seems to be working now though.

    I want to make sure to thank everyone for all the help!!! This is an area I dont know as well as I do CPU/RAM and what have you. Not that I claim expertness there either. The Asus Xonar U3 how does that compare to my onboard digital/optical? I had read coax has more bandwidth and can better...

    I'm using the digital optical now however I'm thinking USB is best at this point, something with digital coax. Does that use regular coax cable like, er, cable?

    x16 -> x8

    I am not familiar with these types of USB Sound cards. Can someone make some recommendations? My new speakers/system supports 5.1 surround and Dolby THX. Not maybe audiophile quality - good enough for me however. :)

    x16 -> x8

    I can certainly look at USB options. My understanding is that digital coax supports full dolby/surround.

    64GB RAM for Ryzen

    Different types of gaming have different needs... MMO/RPG I'll go for more ram. The game may not use it all - Windows disk cache will. Makes a big difference in load times moving around the world, walking around a capitol city, etc when every single texture is cached and ready to go -- only...

    I have something GREAT to say about the most recent Win 10 update !!

    Not the usual post is it :) HDR is, now, for the very first time working on both my monitors. Win could never detect or manage it in the past.

    64GB RAM for Ryzen

    Is it not true the more ranks (aggregate) and the more dimms, the more noise and resistance on the bus, right?

    Windows capping my download speed at 200mbps

    I see fast and speedtest both have options for doing multiple data streams down. This would help eliminate some of the internet variability (IMO) if they are coming from different servers. My Fast speed got a bit better when I set it to 8-16 rather then the default 1-8 (I Think). It is not...

    Windows capping my download speed at 200mbps

    Before my move here - from about 2 miles away - the best I could get was 120. It is really random what speed is available in what location. I have a friend in the Bay Area stuck at 80.

    Windows capping my download speed at 200mbps

    I am glad I did not need to resort to a full OS re-install. Any sites other then Speedtest.Net to recommend? My old stand-by Speedof.me doesnt seem to keep up at near GB throughput.

    Windows capping my download speed at 200mbps

    I'll see if I can find a log file. The only thing I had installed or changed on my system recently was Hamachi - about 6 weeks ago I turned on Hyper V to play with a server - but never actually got around to it.
