    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I would've waited if my old tv/monitor hadn't started to crap out. The monitor space really sucks at the moment. Pretty much everything out there has some draw back or another.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I do get noticeable smearing of text when scrolling quickly. I'm willing to live with it, but I can see how it would be a deal breaker for some. I haven't done much gaming, but haven't seen any issues there. Just with text in normal usage. This is with the overdrive setting to balance.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    To my eye, the image quality is acceptable. I'm not the most discerning consumer of monitors, so I probably represent the mass market. The colors can be tweaked in various modes, and in some they are more vibrant than others. I tend to use the most dark mode for everyday use, as the brighter...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    So I've had this for about a week now (FWIW I paid $999) and here are my thoughts: The screen real estate is just about perfect for sitting a little over 3 feet away. Black text does smear if you quickly scroll through a page I don't notice any ghosting in gaming (overdrive set to Balance) I...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    You can get one of those fancy adapters and get 4k 120 Hz 4:4:4 but no VRR. I'm in the same boat, basically, so I went with the Aorus. I thought long and hard (giggity) about the CX 48. It's obviously a phenomenal display, but I don't want to have to worry about burn in and the 48" size is...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Alright, I ordered it. My samsung is on the way out and there aren't any stellar options in the 40-43" space. If the C1 42 were out that would be a no brainer, but this will have to do.

    LG 48CX

    So for those of you running with the adapter on an older RTX 2xxx series GPU, are you just running 4k 120 Hz HDR with vsync enabled? Perhaps a stupid question, but nobody specified vsync on or off.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    EDIT: nevermind. I found the sub-pixel rendering options in Kubuntu. When I get the monitor I'll start there. Any idea if there is a Linux equivalent? A quick google search didn't show anything ...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Not the person you're asking, but I'm eye balling one of these and my primary purpose is work. Gaming is a pretty distant 3rd on the list, behind work and movies / other video stuff. The reason I'm looking at it is that the extra screen real estate is clutch, and it can moonlight as a gaming...

    Sony 2021 TV Lineup

    From what I understand these don't support VRR, and aren't expected to do so until later in the year. I'd be leery of buying a product on the basis of expected features.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    From what I understand, you can get 120Hz 4:2:0 with VRR on the 2080Ti... so basically no HDR. With an adapter you can get 4k 120 Hz HDR but no VRR, or you can get 4k 60Hz HDR natively. I'm in a similar conundrum. I'm leaning towards the Aorus, as it's several hundred cheaper, no risk of burn...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    The tom's review indicates that movie content is displayed at 60hz instead of 24... how jarring is this in reality? Is it something to be concerned with if you use your monitor for watching movies?

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    He says "no linux support"... what does this mean exactly? If I plug it in under linux, it won't recognize the monitor? Or some of the features don't work under Linux? Edit: nevermind. He was talking about the software for changing settings vs. using the built in buttons. Listening...

    monitor wont always find an hdmi signal

    I'm having an issue ( in Linux ) where my computer is slow to find the input after power cycling the monitor. It only happened after installing the most recent drivers; I didn't have the problem on the older nvidia drivers. Perhaps try rolling back several iterations and see if that fixes the...

    What do people think of the Nvidia RTX Titan?

    I have both the RTX titan (a loaner card) and a pair of 2080Ti (my personal cards). The RTX titan, for gaming, is not a significant upgrade over the 2080Ti. Testing on Hunt showdown allowed me to turn up some AA at 4k, but that's about it in terms of real world impact.

    LG 2021 50" Nano85

    PubG Corporation Patches Vulnerabilities and Arrests Hackers

    Haven't touched PubG since Apex Legends dropped. Mostly because my peeps switched over. I do prefer the realism of PubG, but the pacing in Apex Legends is much better. Never really had much of a problem with cheating, nothing that couldn't be explained anyway.

    Global Foundries May Be Sold

    Many of the tools can be used without modification. Obviously they would need new scanners for EUV litho, but implanters, etchers, wet etchers, furnaces, etc. are all able to handle smaller nodes with the appropriate recipe modifications. Intel was cannibalizing their 45nm tools to send to the...

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    Great review and it paints the card in a better light than some others I've seen. Other sites have it at around 5% slower in most titles. Here it seems to be much closer, using real world testing.

    Apex Legends Hits 1 Million Players, But Replaced Titanfall 3

    Radeon VII or an Nvidia 2080 in SLI or Nvidia 2080 ti single card?

    The 2080Ti is sweet. I must be lucky because I've had no issues. One runs nearly 24x7 for deep learning tasks, the other intermittently for the same, and occasionally for gaming. Maybe 10 hours of gaming on it so far (and several times that with deep learning) and no space invaders action.

    Respawn to Unveil New Battle Royale Game Today

    I play pubg with some friends, and it's a hoot. While camping is a strategy, it's not something we do. Typically the only camping we do is on the outside perimeter of the circle to pick off people trying to escape the storm. It's a cool game mode, and if I can't have a proper successor to Team...

    Gigabyte Will Allegedly Lay Off Sales and Marketing Staff

    Nope. No recession in sight... Edit: but to keep it on topic, I bought a Gigabyte board with my 7820X. Total junk. For the first couple months I had hard reboots while... plotting data in python. That's right. The simple act of plotting even a few data points would cause a hard crash. This was...

    Smartphone Manufacturers Slow Production as Global Demand Weakens

    Wife and I just ordered 2 x OP6T, should be arriving today. We're coming from GS6 and N6, which we've been holding onto for almost 4 years. We could easily afford brand new $1,000 phones every year, but what the hell is the point?

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    Haven't watched any DSC, because of the pay wall. I may check out the free episode to see if it is any good. I think I am one of the few for whom VOY was my favorite of the bunch. Loved the concept, the new setting and the holo doc was awesome. These days, the Expanse fulfills my sci fi...

    Do YOU have Problems with YOUR RTX card?

    About 6 hours of gaming on 2080Ti number 1, no issues so far. No gaming on 2080Ti number 2, but many dozens of hours running machine learning models at 99% utilization, no issues with computation (haven't plugged in the display to see how it's working in games). Counting my lucky stars here.

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    Yup, that's the idea. when trying to use fp16 backend I keep running into NaN loss (immediate) with a fully convolutional model in Keras. Debugging that to fully realize the gains that Turing has to offer.

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    No formal benchmarks to report, but for my deep learning project the 2080Ti is about 25% faster in FP32 work. I did some gaming last night, PUBG for about 2 and a half hours, 4K Medium AA, High Shadows, Ultra everything else and it's incredibly smooth. The experience was on par with my 1080Ti...

    Multi GPU setup without SLI

    I do deep learning, which maxes out my 1080Ti. This renders my system more or less unusable. Is it possible to get a secondary card, like a GT1030 to run the display while the 1080Ti does the number crunching? I'm thinking it should be, provided the monitor input comes from the 1030, but don't...

    Mass Effect Andromeda 1 Year Later

    It got repetitive pretty quickly.. I never finished it. I really wanted to like it, as a sci fi fanatic. But... it just lacked the magic of the original game. Didn't play ME2 or ME3, so the original is my only basis for comparison.
