  1. AMD Radeon RX 6800 Overclocking

    I find the temperature testing of the new AMD cards a bit interesting. It seems they do really well in open environments as far as temperatures go. Inside a case, even with good airflow, the temperatures are far outside of what I've seen in bench reviews. For instance, I have a 6800 inside a...
  2. AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Rage Mode Performance

    I did some testing with a 6900XT last week; using Auto Undervolt actually got a higher increase in performance than Rage Mode setting. I'm guessing that a manual undervolt would yield a bit more as well. I'm using a 6800 now, while it doesn't have Rage Mode setting, it still performs better...
  3. Cyberpunk 2077 Runs Worse on Select AMD Ryzen CPUs Due to Threading Issue, But Here’s a Quick Fix

    The string is there in the GoG version. As with other reports, went from a CPU usage on a 5800x of ~45% to 85% after the hex edit and much smoother experience (much better 1% and 0.1% frame times)
  4. EVGA Introduces GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Graphics Cards (FTW3, XC)

    Good luck on the EVGA line; I signed up for a couple of the notifications on September 19th, still no luck for me yet.
  5. Here Are Even More Photos of AMD’s “Radeon RX 6900 XT”

    It didn't bother me at first, but after seeing the render without the red pin-striping, it looks so gaudy, cheap, and just ugly with it included on the card. Hopefully they remove it for the launch card if it keeps that design, or AIB's pick a better looking design.
  6. Horizon Zero Dawn’s PC Port Tarnished by Broken Texture Filtering, Stuttering

    Spent a few hours today playing on a 3900X (Asus X570-E), 32GB 3600 CL16, with Radeon VII; I ran into no stuttering or other oddities, and while the locked frame rates on certain animations looks odd, it isn't game-breaking (at least for me). In a 3 hour session I averaged 75.1 fps at 1440p on...
  7. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Exceeds Sales Expectations, Improving Sequel Odds

    Rewarding good behavior is a good thing, but this "good" behavior is driven by greed and the not the intent to actually be fair or truthful to its customers; how are they going to prove that they're trying to be better towards their customers? Maybe a good start is not hiring psychiatrists to...
  8. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Exceeds Sales Expectations, Improving Sequel Odds

    I didn't mention anything about the quality of the game, merely commenting on the fact that EA is allowed to get away with a slap on the wrist given their continued bullshit because consumers are too impulsive to teach them a real lesson by not buying their products, if even for one or two titles.
  9. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Exceeds Sales Expectations, Improving Sequel Odds

    These types of things are always entertaining. So much for "vote with you wallet" right? Consumerism is quite comical these days, complain about things when they aren't right, but never actually follow up to teach companies a lesson, be it games or anything else.
  10. Tested: NVIDIA GeForce Drivers Limiting Maximum Frame Rate

    nVidia has a nice list of recommendations for how to use the frame limiting feature to keep latency low as well. Edit: Figure I'd just go ahead and put it in here. "Nvidia states that this feature can be used for a variety of reasons including saving power, reducing system latency, and staying...
  11. James Cameron Shows Off Avatar-Inspired Mercedes-Benz Concept Car at CES 2020

    I wonder where they got the unobtanium to build this... (Still the laziest name ever for a precious mineral)
  12. Apple Sued by New York University Doctor Over Watch's Heartbeat Detection Feature

    There is so much grey area here, it's insane. On one hand, you have a huge ego who would rather sue than to let his work help potential heart risk patients. (Wiesel is a pretty accurate name here) Then on the other you have a company who rips people off daily (looking at you $1000 monitor stand...
  13. Apple Polishing Cloth Required to Clean New Apple Pro XDR Display Nano Glass

    But what about the proprietary cleaning cloth cleaning kit to keep the cleaning cloth clean? The proprietary cleaning cloth carrying case? The proprietary hand sanitizer that is required to handle your proprietary cleaning cloth? I hate Apple so much.
  14. NVIDIA GeForce Driver Power Mode Settings Compared

    There are some specific games which do not play well if the Optimal Power setting is used; at one point PubG ran like garbage if you had Optimal Power selected and going to adaptive fixed the issue. I've seen others, but it's been a little while so I don't recall what they were. Good job on this!
  15. Xbox Chief: Project Scarlett “Will Not Be Out of Position on Power or Price”

    I don't think that had as much to do with swaying the scales of the market as much as not having a good set of exclusive titles. Sony has had, and continues to have, much much better exclusive IPs, so having the same price and performance isn't going to sway the market as much as they're hoping...
  16. Sonic No Longer Looks Horrifying: Hedgehog's Redesign Debuts In New Trailer

    Definitely much, much better. Though, this whole thing with the movie brings up an interesting thought; what if this was the design from the beginning and the original trailer was an intentional stunt to try to win some respect/cool points/etc with the fans by saying they were going to change it...
  17. AMD: Radeon RX 5500 Outperforms NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 by Up to 49%

    Those are the titles that will push the sales; as with any release, waiting for valid reviews is always good.
  18. AMD: Radeon RX 5500 Outperforms NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 by Up to 49%

    Hopefully they'll drop this in at ~$180-200, it would be a very competitive buy with the performance and power consumption; plus it just looks very clean with the all black and single axial fan design. Was going to be replacing a 590 and 570 with 1660's, but these could take that spot given the...
  19. AMD Radeon RX 5500 GPU Series Announcement

    With the info that came out today, it could be a promising launch for this price/performance range. Seems like the 5500 could fall in the performance bracket just between the RX590 and the 1660 with power consumption similar to the 1660.
  20. 4K Gaming Is a “Useless” Gimmick Designed to Sell New Tech, Says Playdead Co-founder

    I would partially agree in certain circumstances. The people who turn all settings down are usually e-sports competitors looking for an extra edge when there are no rules specifying which resolution/settings should be used, or people using low resolutions to make hit boxes bigger. Personally, I...
