How the fuck does that reduce the variance? It just increases the max fan setting. If anything it would increase the variance. And since when is 40% max??? What the fuck is wrong with 100%! Furious

Seriously, right now there is no need to buy the 290X when the 290 is as fast as it. Unless these drivers are nerfing the 290 somehow.....

The fix is not about changing the max fan limit from 40 to 47%. That particular fix was already there in 13.11 beta8 and is specific to 290 (not 290X) anyway.

The fix here is controlling the fan limits properly. They have an RPM sensor for the fan, and a PWM voltage control. The fan % setting until now was controlling PWM. The assumption was that 47% PWM voltage pulse will give you a certain amount of RPM resulting in certain noise (and cooling properties). However the electrical/mechanical properties are such that same 47% PWM may result in slightly different fan speeds on different cards, which caused temperature variance. The new driver takes the RPM sensor data and set the max PWM to be any voltage which gives 47% (or whatever you configure the max limit to) fan speed.

It makes sense, as the fan speed is what the driver is supposed to control anyway as a noise/heat tradeoff.
Well of course there will be variances because the ambient temperature is going to be different. So in the summer x amount of performance is going to cost more noise than in the winter.

Are they still having problems with people feeling sick or getting disoriented after using Oculus Rift?

This time I won't play it like I played the first 2 trying to get all the unlockables. I will play the main storyline and I will get many of the unlockables more naturally through the course of the storyline instead of TRYING to get them.

I have 8 GB and I don't know why. I don't really multitask lots of apps and no game comes close to taking more than 4 GB. Maybe now we will have less loading as more RAM can be used but if we see no benefit then I will get angry, like Hulk. You don't want to see Overon angry.

I'm sure this game is going to be good like the others, however having played all the others, these animations and moves are identical to the last batman game. Besides the story and a couple of new enemies and gadgets, is there anything new? After watching this video I got a serious sense of deja vu and I'm a discerning gamer who thinks this is too similar to Arkham city.

Even in the press release "apology" they are being misleading. Fuck Wild Game Studios. It's a shame that they probably have decent people working for them and the actions of a few have tainted the company. The CEO Stephane and possibly others have made a terrible mistake and bullying tactics by him deserve some sort of censure.

P.S. Look at their portfolio of games, seem like shovel-ware to me. Also filing false DMCA's is illegal.

People have certain expectations when they play a game. However with the mobile platform, kickstarter, early access, greenlight, there is an avalanche of crap games. It seems to me that being profitable is a lot easier and as a result there is more crap then ever out there. It's really more games = more crap games.

I have been disappointed too many times by claims and then when reality set in the claims were not justified.

I hope for the best (not that this changes reality in anyway) but I will believe it when I see it. Right now I suspend judgement.

I wanted Thief style game. I did not want Thief with the Dishonored style "supernatural" powers. Dishonored was very good however. Dishonored Thief is what we are getting, sadly.

Not sure if you played the later thief games, but as the series went on there was more and more occult stuff going on.

I have played all Thief games. I'm talking about the supernatural powers of Garrett.

where did you see supernatural powers? i didn't see any magic in this clip. a few poofy stealing effects, but nothing i would call magical. funny considering how a previous poster was complaining about how this wasnt supernatural and mystical like the original.
The black smoke and the slow motion and change in graphics filter, those are the supernatural powers. You can also view other trailers, gameplay trailers from E3 that show continuous gameplay and you shall see the supernatural powers.

I believe, on no good evidence, that they are making HL3 still.

I don't know where I read it, but someone suggested Valve charge full price for Half Life 3 on Windows Steam and release it for free on SteamOS. That would give SteamOS a big boost.

The Thief demo at E3 had low FOV, quicktime events, low resolution textures, dishonored game mechanics, and was an assassination simulator with call of duty style "xp" for headshots. It's not Thief. It's an imposter. I weep in my rage.

It's more like a first person Gears of War without the cover system and prettier graphics but dumber enemies. Check out the youtube videos, it plays more like the brain dead Serious Sam series. Hey but some people like that.

If it wasn't for games, I would probably be using GNU/Linux instead of Microsoft Windows. If more game ran natively on GNU/Linux I would not be using Microsoft Windows.
