    LG 48CX

    In am using a 43 inch Sony tv as a monitor now. At normal desk distances of 2-3 feet, it's a little big for certain types of games that benefit from a gods eye view of the entire screen like league of legends and shooters, but great for immersive games. My second goal is to find some top...

    LG 48CX

    I bought a 55" b9 for my mother to replace an old tv, and it's a terrible design imo from a logistical standpoint. Having a thin area on top is meaningless if the base is very thick, it just makes handling the tv more difficult. And from a technical standpoint, Panasonic has showed that having...

    Anyone think the 48 inch oled will have similar peak brightness as the larger 4k counterparts? I remember seeing a review of the 8k oled with more pixel density having much worse performance when it came to brightness.

    So what you are saying is that I should keep my 43" 4k Sony x800d as a pc monitor hooked up to my desktop in addition to the cx 48 in case the issues described bother me? Ok. I can deal with changing inputs as needed when playing a game or watching something. Now to think about what I...

    New AMD ES GPU beats 2080Ti by 17% on OpenVR GPU Benchmark leaderboard

    I think AMD would do much better selling this for 600-700 dollars. Target old 1080ti pricing, nvidia will overshoot this of course, but we don't know what size their ampere 7nm cards will be. With the 2000 series, the 2080ti is some massive brute forced 700+ mm2 die. So if they are only...

    How hard would it be to do a clear type for oled displays with the lg display characteristics? Isn't this just something that ought to be a relatively easy software tweak that microsoft could release?

    LG 48CX

    How far away from the screen can you detect a difference? 3 feet? 4? 2? Whatever the answer is, I wonder what reduction in distance for detection will be there shrinking the display from 55 inches to 48 inches.

    Elder Scrolls VI Release Date: Gameplay Locations and Infinitely Playable like Skyrim Features

    I have played daggerfall onwards, And I picked up daggerfall in the 90s when it was still sold in stores with that holographic skull packaging. As such, I out rank all other opinions on which elder scrolls game is better or worse. Daggerfall had the most options for your character, by far...

    I wonder what the numbers look like for people buying "gaming monitors" vs tv's a thousand dollars or more.

    LG 48CX

    Depending on the demand for these, I could see the 48 inch models being higher cost than the 55s at certain times. I'm sure people using the oled for desktop displays would actually put a premium on the display not being quite so large. It will be interesting to see how things shake out.

    Finally someone actually talked to a rep. Talked about some of the improvements on the alpha 3 processor. The part about image optimizations that improve over time was interesting. Why not take what is learned over time from AI and improve things via software updates vs some static...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    I was about to call it DOA too, but at least this monitor has local dimming with a ton of zones, 1100 is more than almost all high end tvs on the market. And this is on a small 32 inch display. Being able to hit 1400 nits on highlights is a nice touch, so people who prefer brighter displays and...

    My main irritation with gearbox was them stalling and wasting time and not doing anything with the franchise. Now that homeworld 3 is a go, that allays most of my immediate concerns. We did not see any gameplay, but I hope the game engine gets a bigger upgrade than what we saw. Homeworld and...

    This Cyberpunk creator interview made me realize that tabletop games are a potential gold mines

    He mentions the scope of books and backstories they have for things like cyberpunk in addition to other games. It made me think of how well done novels are fertile ground for new tv shows. Anyone know of any other tabletop games that are in depth that could be good candidates for rpgs?

    I find her more neutral than anything, but a lot of people are just turned off by her. The one I'm turned off by is Tilly, her whole SCIENCE IS COOL kind of shtick grates on my nerves, they need to dial her down big time.

    Is Bioware done?

    It seems everything they have touched recently has not ended well. Andromeda was seen as lackluster, and I heard 90% of the playerbase of anthem is gone. We may never see a dragon age game set in Tevinter.

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    I read somewhere it takes around 20 years to mostly clear out a generation of cars from the road through primary ownership life plus used sales. I think it could easily be the case that most new cars sold would be electric in about 10 years too.

    I just discovered a dream game is in development. Spellbreak.

    Just learned about the existence of this game, it's in alpha now. They are initially building out a battle royale style game mode, but if you look at that clip it's clear this magical combat system could work in numerous other game modes, even an rpg, but with characters with more freedom of...

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    The roadsters boost in range is mostly because it's supposed to have a battery pack that is 200kwh, most of that is likely due to eating the cost of cramming more batteries into a smaller area. With the higher sticker costs, certain options become more feasible economically. As for battery...

    I do support pebble reactors, and continued research on fusion reactors, and solar and wind. I want it all, anything that is cleaner. But this notion that we ought not allow government to put a finger on the scales is just off. If we as a society decide that we want more of something or less...

    You are thinking too short term. It helps wealthier people get the car by encouraging them, but that also helps accelerate the market by having state governments put their fingers on the scale. Tesla sells its zero emissions credits to other automakers that rely more heavily on trucks and...

    AMD Radeon VII Interview with Scott Herkelman @ [H]

    I missed this interview earlier and just caught up. I hope they are able to get someone to make a displayport 1.4 to hdmi 2.1 adapter, would go a long way to boosting these cards. But it mainly matters if they are able to get vrr and perhaps even the low latency mode working through the...

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    The thing is, most pc displays top out at 400 nits anyway. I'm using a sony 43" 4k tv that tops out around 400 nits, and that is basically white light. It would be a massive improvement if the COLORS topped out at 500 nits, on top of deep blacks instead of this VA panel with zero fald for the...

    OLED HDMI 2.1 VRR LG 2019 models!!!!

    The brightness seems to be one of the biggest sticking points to the display color. As brightness rises, you start to lose color volume. And conversely, it's probably easier to hit 100% of DCI P3 at lower brightness levels.
