    Samsung Has Announced Plans to Scrap Plasma TVs

    I think slight image retention is always a problem with plasma. BURN IN is what isn't really an issue anymore (at least after the break in period). I've had my plasma for a 3 months now and the IR is almost non existent. It was definitely worse during the break in period, but it is still there.

    Samsung Has Announced Plans to Scrap Plasma TVs

    This makes me sad. I just got the Samsung pn64f8500 64 inches of plasma goodness. The thing is just as bright as some LCDs! I can barely watch LCD TVs now I am so spoiled by the motion resolution, black detail and color accuracy. The only reason plasma is dying is because of 4k and most people...

    weird brown spot on vrm card still works perfectly

    I'll see if I have time to take a picture tonight, but I'm pretty sure its some time of epoxy they used on a component nearby it. I noticed a bit on the pcb as well. It doesn't come off and seems like it bumps up a little.

    weird brown spot on vrm card still works perfectly

    So I was taking my stock cooler off my r9 290x to install a watercooler and noticed one of the vrms in the back has a brown spot on it. It looks almost like a burn mark. I have just had the card for 24 hours and it was running perfectly, even over clocked with the stock cooler just LOUD. The...

    Analyst: Publishers Won't Block Used Games, Much

    They do have sales on the sony and xbox stores now. I imagine they will follow suit once it gains traction. Also there are plenty $60 PC games new. I have a ps3 and I NEVER buy the games at $60 they are usually on clearance or sale 4-6 months after they come out. PC is def the best platform and...

    Analyst: Publishers Won't Block Used Games, Much

    I don't see the big deal. Steam doesn't allow you to sell used games. You don't see PC gamers bitching. Honestly I think digital delivery is an upgrade. Who cares if it kills the used game market. The games will probably be cheaper, again see Steam.

    NVIDIA Announces Project Shield

    Yeah the screen on the tablet is 854 x 480.. Its a low powered console and it is able to drive 2 off those tablets while rendering 1080P on the tv and there is no lag. If the wii can do this surely a pc can. Wireless N should have more than enough bandwith for 720P+....

    NVIDIA Announces Project Shield

    I wouldn't worry about the lag guys. If you have played the Wii U you don't notice the lag at all on a game that required precise controls, like Mario. The wii u controller is streamed via a dedicated wireless-n connection to the console.
