    I agree, GOG does it right and that's how you compete with Steam and give value to the consumer.

    Digital Foundry Compares Ace Combat 7 PC and Console Versions

    It's a pity it's delayed until the 31st on PC. Why do some developers feel the need to do this, are they that frightened of piracy? I doubt that ultrawide support will be added in the interim as nothing ever seems to get fixed.

    AdoredTV Discusses the Recent AMD Ryzen and Radeon 3000 Series Leaks

    The rumours say around 15%, so only 3 generations of Intel products' worth. A 15% IPC increase and those clocks would mean AMD have a monster on their hands.

    RTX 2080 Ti FE Escapes Testing by Dying After 8 Hours @ [H]

    This is why I refunded my faulty 2080Ti, I'm not going to take the risk on these cards. The fact that people are getting multiple faulty RMA units in a row, including Kyle, is practically unheard of. My refund came through yesterday and I was so happy.

    Do YOU have Problems with YOUR RTX card?

    It was crashing the display driver from the start randomly, particularly in Quake Champions for some reason which is not very demanding. This got worse over time until I got warp errors and graphics exception errors in the event viewer. The LED also randomly turns red. For some reason 416.34...

    Do YOU have Problems with YOUR RTX card?

    I selected other issues as my 2080 Ti FE is just totally unstable, the driver is crashing randomly in games and I'm getting graphics exception and warp errors in the event viewer. Also, the LED logo is randomly turning red. I am trying to return it for a refund, but the call centre people keep...

    Devolver Digital “Apologizes Unreservedly” for Nazi Imagery in “SCUM”

    So does Bernie Sanders, it's called 'social democracy' which he has relabelled as 'democratic socialism' for some insane reason, presenting an open goal for the right wing and allowing them to conflate it with socialism.

    MSI X99S XPOWER AC Spectre/Meltdown BIOS?

    Worst Graphics Card Ever? GT 1030 DDR4 Benchmarked

    Newsflash: most people don't know what SDDR4 means and they don't know if it's better or worse than GDDR5, particularly the average person buying a budget card who may be getting into PC gaming for the first time. The name is the same, yet the performance is wildly different. This should be...

    AMD ZEN 2 7nm CPUs on Track

    Gen 3 Ryzen is gen 2 Zen. We are talking about Ryzen 3, due in 2019, here. I always find it confusing when they have different numbering for Ryzen and Zen. Gen 2 Ryzen is actually Zen refresh or Zen+. So hopefully Ryzen 3 can be a massive performance leap and dominate Intel, 7nm should help.

    Intel Releases Updated Microcode For Meltdown and Spectre

    They are effectively Xeons anyway, so hopefully you're right and my 5820K gets an update otherwise I might just switch to Ryzen+ if it's good enough.

    Microsoft Issues Windows Out-of-Band Update That Disables Spectre Mitigations

    Okay, thank you. I'm getting the info from AMD so it depends on their veracity and whether they have done their due diligence. There are certainly plenty of people who are skeptical about this, whether that's fair or not. Intel definitely has the biggest problem though, we can all agree on that.

    Microsoft Issues Windows Out-of-Band Update That Disables Spectre Mitigations

    Microsoft Issues Windows Out-of-Band Update That Disables Spectre Mitigations

    AMD has a near zero risk to Spectre 2, they will be releasing optional firmware updates to reduce this to zero for the super paranoid. I don't believe they have done so so far. They have zero risk to Meltdown. This is why AMD had BSODs...

    Why does Ryzen 7 1800X performs so poorly in games?

    All I wanted was for it to equal a 6900k in games and then it would have been great. We all knew beforehand that it would lose to a 7700k in lightly threaded games. That's not the point, the point is it's doing significantly worse than an Intel chip with the same number of cores and threads as...

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DX12 Performance Review @ [H]

    Vulkan in Doom is really good so hopefully all is not lost. If more developers used it we'd see if these problems are due to DX12 or lower-level APIs in general.
