  1. AMD Says It Isn’t Trying to Keep CPU and GPU Prices High

    I don't see how the articles are wrong... but I don't think AMD/nVidia are lying or wrong - just spinning it. In a supply/demand economy, aren't inventory and price related factors? So if you are restricting inventory, you are, in fact inflating prices. I sure don't see excess inventory on...
  2. AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series “Aged Like Milk”: No New Drivers in Two Months

    aged milk - cheese? Idk doesn’t sound that bad if you think about it like that.
  3. Sony Slashes PS VR2 Output After Pre-Order Numbers Disappoint

    if they ain’t broke. Not like speakers have really advanced in … 50 years
  4. Embracer Group Leases Tomb Raider Rights to Amazon for $600 Million: Report

    That's the kind of dynamism that I can get behind.
  5. Netflix Launches Spatial Audio for Premium Subscribers

    Ok, I thought they always had surround / spatial audio on stuff -- are they just now tying it to the higher priced subscription that was required to get HDR/4K as well?
  6. Noctua Announces NA-FG1 Fan Grills With Offset Push-Pin Mounting

    It's the end of the work day, and I just cracked my first beer. And read that as the "Noctua N1-GGA" and did a WTF-oh-no-they-didn't beer spew all over my desk... Then i re-read it and returned to reality.

  8. Sony Slashes PS VR2 Output After Pre-Order Numbers Disappoint

    My son - all his friends have the cheaper white Occulus ones - the Quest 2 maybe? He inevitably asked for one for Christmas. I got lucky and he changed his mind (Legos, of all things). They seem pretty enthralled with it, no barfing that I know of. But they are also enthralled by TikTok, so I...
  9. YEYIAN Gaming Launches Ultrawide 34-Inch 2K “SIGURD 4000” HDR400 Curved Gaming LED VA Monitor With Adaptive-Sync Technology for $369

    Apart from the brand name I've never heard of... seems like this sort of panel has been around for a long long time? VA 1.5x 1440 curved VRR HDR400... am I missing anything? Seems like those have been a dime a dozen for a couple of years now.
  10. The latest Windows dirty trick?

    For F's Sake:
  11. Sony Slashes PS VR2 Output After Pre-Order Numbers Disappoint

    All so they can be "sold out" at release and show "unprecedented and unexpected demand" due to the level of excitement generated by the product. I'm sure.
  12. Forspoken Loads in Less than Two Seconds on M.2 SSDs Thanks to DirectStorage

    4.1s vs 5.4s. So much improvement. 1.3 seconds of my life I'll wonder what I ever did without now that I have it handed back to me. :cool: I guess that's cool? I mean, going from a PS4 on a SATA2 HDD to PS5/PC on a PCI Gen 4 NVMe, yeah, your going to notice the load times going from literal...
  13. AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series “Aged Like Milk”: No New Drivers in Two Months

    The RTX release of Portal made me upgrade my driver recently. Apart from that I usually will only do so if I see some news that it's fixed some bug or something - maybe two-three times a year? Then again, I mostly play older games and almost never buy games at release.
  14. AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series “Aged Like Milk”: No New Drivers in Two Months

    Ok, so.. if the driver is broke / buggy - yeah, should complain a bit about that, even if the manufacturer has acknowledged the issue. But... apart from that -- how often do you want to install new drivers on your machine? If they work, I'm happy to leave well enough alone. In fact, I get...
  15. Tesla Model S Bursts Into Flames in California, Requires 6,000 Gallons of Water to Extinguish

    You don’t extinguish battery fires. You just keep anything around them from catching while you wait on the battery cells to discharge spectacularly. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of things happen in the EV space: A) an overall cap on battery capacity (FAA already has one for laptops and...
  16. Rumored Specs and Images for NVIDIA 24 GB/24 Gbps GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and 800W/48 GB Titan Graphics Cards Emerge

    Efficiency is important. But there still is a ceiling on power draw, no matter how efficient you can be. Most residential circuits cap at 15A (about 1700W give or take). Going beyond that and you are looking at commercial / semi-pro applications that can run dedicated circuits or higher...
  17. NVIDIA DLSS 3 Delivers Huge Gains to Marvel’s Midnight Suns, HITMAN World of Assassination, and Other New DLSS 3 Titles on GeForce RTX 40 Series

    Well, the last I read: Reflex only “requires” a 3000 series GPU, so it doesn’t rely on DLSS 3 or a 4000 series chip. So I think it’s fair to say if DLSS 3 increases latency, since Reflex isn’t an exclusive feature of DLSS 3 that reduces it back down — it can be used in other titles on other...
  18. Forspoken Won’t Run on AMD Polaris GPUs

    Prices have definitely gone up, but that's true for both the high end and what you might consider entry-level. Used to be you could play PC games fairly comfortably on something priced around $200. Not anymore.
