    LG 48CX

    I just bought one too, as it seems, from the few people that have upgraded the firmware to a version that has not yet been released, seems to have addressed most of the issues. So I am hoping by the time it gets here, that firmware will be available OTA. Either way it is a big upgrade from...

    Xotic PC - appears to have 3080 and 5900

    In case anyone cares they responded positively at least so I am going to give them a shot. Will be the first PC in 20 years I did not build. I did skimp on memory and SSD and just bought those separately to throw in myself as the upcharge on that was too much to bear. Should have it within 3...

    Thanks, yeah I will wait of course. I just wasn't sure if anyone here had any experience with them.

    Xotic PC - appears to have 3080 and 5900

    Hi I am ready / eager to build a new PC. As everyone knows, the new Ryzen CPU's, AMD GPU's and NVIDIA GPU's are all out of stock everywhere unless you count scalpers. I am not going to, under any circumstance, buy from scalpers and feed that tactic. I'd rather wait a year as much as I don't...

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Reboots my computer on launch

    That's a feature not a bug. Its a warning not to waste your time playing the game. Sorry I could not resist. You seem to have tried most of what I would suggest. Clearly not your first time troubleshooting.

    Microsoft Reveals Project xCloud: a Vision for Game-Streaming

    Regarding steam link - I think in many cases (I am not saying all) people that had "bad" experiences with it may have underlying issues with their network set up that are not readily identifiable because they are normally not apparent. For example for a while my network would hiccup everytime...

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen 3000 "Matisse" Launching July 7

    Sorry for late reply. Only one game for me really uses CPU to full extent (along with the rest of the chipset) Arma 3. That was the only game I saw a decent jump in performance (I kept the same video card for the upgrade in this case). The game is notoriously hard on CPU. But it is also hard...

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen 3000 "Matisse" Launching July 7

    Totally agree with this and I was in the same boat. I used to upgrade every year then every other year. I finally upgraded from an i7920 3 years ago (I didn't last 10 years like you). But I don't think the CPU really increased much performance. I think the only real difference comes from the...

    Here Is 10 Minutes of RAGE 2 Gameplay

    I liked rage also ... except right when it really seemed like it was about to get even better... it was over. It ended so abruptly it made no sense. But up to that point I really liked it. (then again, I paid very little for it).

    Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Lays Out the Company's Vision for Its "Netflix for Games"

    Why would be much different than multiplayer games currently run on servers? That same delay is there, just your local machine shows faster results - but its smoke and mirrors (compared to the "actual results on the server) that gets resynced constantly. Local only games would never be as good...

    Laptop or Surface Pro?

    I would be curious to know what you do that you would need to bother to spend extra money on a hard drive for more storage. At work, in general, the work should be saved on network drives so everything is backed up sufficiently.

    International Olympic Committee Comments on eSports Inclusion

    This is what happens when you start letting things like Curling and other bar sports / goofy games into the Olympics. I feel like the point of the Olympics was to be able to say, who is the fastest, who is the strongest, most agile, most endurance, jumps highest, throws farthest, etc.

    Microsoft Is Replacing Edge in Windows 10 with a Chromium-Based Web Browser

    I have gone through phases with all the browsers. I gave up on Firefox a few years ago, it became a buggy dog... I assume from positive posts here it is back to being a usable browser. Chrome is usually solid / consistent, although I feel like it is slower than Edge right now. I like Edge on...

    Nike Signs Deal With Esports Athlete

    Too bad they did not call it "Competitive Gaming" or "Professional Gaming" or "Electronic Competition" or something like that. They should make them stand up while they play. At least that way they are exerting themselves somehow.

    Odyssey+ VR Headset Solves the Screen Door Effect

    This might be my jump into VR... Question for those that use these devices (and assuming this is similar). I have bad eyesight in one eye. Is it possible to independently adjust the focus for each eye? It says not to wear eyeglasses with the device. How does that work?

    AMD to Regain 30% Desktop Market Share in 4Q18? That's Unlikely

    Freebyrd, I came to say the same thing. I wish people would read a financial statement before spouting off and making up random big numbers. The information is readily available. Just go look at it before making up nonsense. It takes away from your point.

    Google Pixel 3 XL Makes an Early Appearance in Hong Kong [Leak]

    I don't kiss my phone... It's really pathetic calling any of the phones made in the last 4 or so year ugly. They are all rectangles with varying degrees of bezel and a few buttons on the side (or not). The back of the phone is irrelevant, since 95% of us put cases on anyway.

    US Army is Investigating a Quad Bore Rifle

    My favorite thing about gun posts is how triggered gun aficionados get when someone calls a magazine a "clip." I'm sure those guys never use a nickname for any tool, or device, and always speak with exemplary political correctness. Its also a certainty that they have never referred to their...

    Virtual Reality Enables the Air Force to Train Pilots in Half the Time

    Almost 50% of U.S. Mobile Traffic Will Be Scam Calls by 2019

    I have not really bothered with listening to them at all lately (just hang up on them, or don't answer). But before it was "your window's PC is infected", or they are an energy company that can reduce my costs, or detected fraud on my account (with a bank I don't use), or of course any number...

    Xbox One to Get Keyboard and Mouse Support

    I would love to get some RTS and strategy games on the Xbox. That's mostly what I use the PC for anymore. If they start porting those types of games over to Xbox (which has way more horsepower than most of those type of games need), I might hang up needing to maintain a high end PC.

    Tick Tock - #BeForeTheGame

    I think I'll keep my 1080 until the next console comes around, then buy that console instead for $4-500. From a guy that bought new video cards like clockwork every 2 years for the last 20+ years, I think I am fully done at this price level. Most of my upgrades have been to make Operation...
