    AMD's StoreMI Technology @ [H]

    NVME is fast, but still noticeably more expensive just wish we would see 5.25" bay HDD's seems a transition that would make far too much sense for spinning rust to stave off extinction awhile longer. The SATA III is defiantly a cache bottleneck concern as well that's gone too overlooked I mean...

    Poll: Tensor (TPU) Cores on consumer GPUs: Boon or Bust?

    DLSS is probably just a initial stepping stone for both ray tracing and VR for performance reasons. The other thing for tensor cores is sure they are good for machine learning which has various applications both inside/outside of gaming/game development. The other aspect of DLSS is the latency...

    Poll: Tensor (TPU) Cores on consumer GPUs: Boon or Bust?

    As far as DLSS goes the DPI would skew peoples perceptions on it a fair amount. Another generational change to underlying tensor cores to it could improve the quality further to the point where at 4K it's highly acceptable and at 1440p a bit like it is now at 4K being a option that's rather hit...

    Budget Joystick?

    I don't like the spring tension on the Logitech stick personally and the hat control feels cheap which at $35's I suppose it is really. The bigger thing for me is the spring. I also wish they had a wireless one in product in that price range. I've gotten to a point where I'd just prefer more...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Riff Racer, Starblast, and Bloodline of Prima are the most recent games I've been playing. Starblast I'd recommend the others idk they are hit or miss recommendations I'd say. Bloodlines of Prima is rough around edges and in early access, but it is sort of unique and interesting and kind of...

    Slim mechanical keyboards

    Scissor switch is a rubber dome technically speaking though it seems like the rubber is a bit less stiff and rigid on them. It's a bit quieter and a lot quicker and it's a super stable key press due to the two arms on it with a low actuation point and low travel and good key return due to the...

    Slim mechanical keyboards

    I'm not a fan of those key caps Outbreaker the flat keys just don't feel as nice to type on to me. The coolermaster one is more like a regular key cap though I'd rather type on that. I love low profile low actuation point low travel keyboards though in terms of rapid typing response that's why I...

    Slim mechanical keyboards

    Yeah I enjoy it a lot feels great. I can't see going back to a full height keyboard ever after a day on this keyboard. Feels less fatiguing, feels quicker, and is quite a bit quieter overall especially if typing more gently with it. If I were to try anything else I'd it would be the a Cherry MX...

    Slim mechanical keyboards

    I was looking at the Corsair K63 and K70's the K63 is wireless, but not low profile though, but would be cool if they made a MX low profile wireless version with that design layout at some point. I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy such a pairing. I'm very pleased with Cherry SX scissor...

    I just got a Cherry B. Unlimited that came today Cherry SX Scissor switches low profile wireless laser engraved keys. It's got this style scissor key cap for the record.

    Elecom JC-U4113SWH (controller) Rapid Fire

    I imported one of these controllers from Japan that I received today it was roughly $35's on Ebay.

    Crytek Demos Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections Running on an AMD Vega 56

    As far as the RAM issue is concerned AMD should make a infinity fabric connected device like Asus Hyper M.2 and have it utilize GDDR/HBM instead of NAND. Radeon Pro's have something a bit like that, but it's just a standard M.2 NAND. If they AMD could do that with actual VRAM that is much faster...

    BioWare Warns Hostile Replies Make Developers Less Likely to Engage

    I'd just like to say be nice or the consumers will stop buying to the developers that happen to be sucking.

    NVIDIA Acquires Mellanox for $6.9 Billion

    Damn they paid more for Mellanox than AMD did for ATI that's seems nuts from a context standpoint though with cloud computing it's probably rather lucrative today plus it plays into Nvidia's ambitions into that area I suppose as well. Still that's hefty price tag, but they've got tons of cash...

    NVIDIA: RTX GPUs, High-Refresh-Rate Monitors Can Improve Your Kill-Death Ratio

    I wonder if GPU's could deploy a form adaptive frame rate controlled AA got example 40FPS/50FPS/30FPS would all be fairly reasonable 20ms/25ms/33.33ms intervals and could trigger retroactively in a way that favors AA over input latency or input latency over AA in terms of transitioning. It could...

    NVIDIA: RTX GPUs, High-Refresh-Rate Monitors Can Improve Your Kill-Death Ratio

    Diminishing returns in regard to FPS and latency. Isn't gsync capped to display refresh rate as well or slightly below it? So if that's the case Nvidia is comparing 16.67ms latency against 6.94ms latency and 4.16ms latency in regard to KD/R oh gee big shocker a 12.51ms to 9.73ms difference leads...

    Patent Suggests Future AMD GPUs Could Support Variable Rate Shading

    How does the VRS work with the RTX 2080Ti and GTX 1660 Ti is retroactively enabled by default is it toggled on a case by case basis depending on the game? It could easily be viewed as a cheat if it's retroactively on by default for example and impacts visual quality. I actually think you could...

    AMD Radeon VII Chilling & Undervolting @ [H]

    Still really keen to know if the undervolt combined with chill can work in tandem and if so how that might alter results a touch plus I'm curious how straying from the default chill min/max settings could be of a benefit. Hows it tie in with boost in relation to the minimum/average frame rate in...

    AMD Radeon VII Chilling & Undervolting @ [H]

    There was a bit of a implied AMD jab and not as if Nvidia doesn't also do similar, but sure they have more resources to do a better job at squeezing out more performance and efficiency no kidding that's readily obvious. There is a point where it's simply not worth the time and effort for either...

The hardware dropping some of the high frame rates so it can...

    I have a feeling it'll spike back up a bit when 7nm arrives and supply gets tighter again. I think til then it's hit a bit of lull in part due to Intel's production issues and peoples reluctance. The latter part will probably fade a fair bit from the performance benefits the new Ryzen will offer...

    Hardware Unboxed Calls NVIDIA DLSS "The Biggest RTX Fail of Them All"

    I think DLSS would be fine for foveated AA similar to if you modified this split screen post process and set it up so the display had a bit of a diamond peripheral area that received MSAA and outside of the diamond the rest of the resolution used DLSS. Horizontal splits with some angled splits...

    Some 1660 TI Models Could Have 3GB of VRAM

    I think it all depends how it benchmarks and if it's got a niche enough use where it's generally as good as the 6GB card at lower resolution like 720p/1080p. I mean perhaps for high refresh rate displays where competitive players are known to sacrifice IQ a bit more to match refresh rate it's a...
