Remind me to never go to cnn.com again. What an annoying and condescending toned video that insists on playing.

Chicago Netflix customers- Your bill is about to go up 9 percent.

Wow, can cities charge consumption taxes? I've only ever heard of states doing that. It's one thing for a national company to have to keep track of 50 states' laws, but to then have to also track 100s of cities? That seems like a burden.

It's called a "cloud tax." It imposes a 9-percent tax on "patrons of amusement." I imagine that your WoW subscription and Steam purchases would also fall under this? Any Chicagoans out there know?

Apparently Chicago is rife with corruption/extortion. Their government is the same. So I've heard.

The frame latency tests show that the brute force approach isn't bringing an enjoyable (smooth) experience.

Great hardware with mediocre (or worse) drivers. They need to take the opposite approach, or at better balance their dollar investment between the two.

Thankfully nv control panel allows 1/2 vsync framerate so 120hz monitor refresh can still be played @60 fps but that's a workaround, not a fix.

You can use NVInspector to set specific refresh rates per game. I can run Skyrim up to exactly 85hz before the world goes physics bonkers. Starts right at 86hz.

Yes true. My screen looks best at 120hz so I much prefer the 1/2 vsync workaround. Also I think it might help game responsiveness (no proof of that) to keep screen refresh at 120.

It's still not clear enough. Skyrim does not run above 60fps well. Did they fix this game breaking issue with FO4? Does FO4 support 120/144hz refresh natively?

AMD's own graphs point towards a bit better performance than a 980ti, but those are their graphs. So it'll probably be on par with a 980ti (at irrelevant 4k). I find that mildly disappointing but I guess not too surprising. A while back the talk about HBM memory architecture was implying massive overall performance improvements and that piqued my interest. Oh reality you keep doing this to me!

Seems way over priced to me. 30 is more reasonable, especially for those who already own the base game.

1. 390X Jun 19, 2015, 09:33 LittleMe
 
Very sad day for PC gaming. Well even for console gaming since they too need AMD. Priced way too high and has far too much power consumption. Just get a 290x if you want an AMD.

Good writing and story can help FO4, but too much and that, IMO, takes away from the experience. I don't want to play a soap opera. Really that's a bad idea. If Bethesda tried a story heavy game, it better be good, otherwise it would ruin it.

Best they stick with what they're great at and be glad. A great game does not need much story. In fact, too much story usually ruins a game like this where they shovel an overwhelming story down our throats instead of giving it in small doses. DA:O did that - way too much story that I didn't want or connect with.

What a great presenter Todd Howard is. Absolutely killed it for the Fallout presentation

Yes he is great at it.

One thing though.. Every time he says it's coming out for consoles he says "and PC" with a lower tone and a hint of disdain. Or maybe I'm just hearing that. Phone games, console games with a phone-ish interface (Skyrim), oh yeah, and PC. He did the same 'and PC' tone with the Skyrim announcement too.

Wow. I know they are saying 'concurrent users' but the best way to get more concurrent is to add new users. If that's so, then that's a huge increase for only one month!

I'm inclined to also read this as the market mildly rejecting the new modestly powered consoles and going to PC.

Maybe those bright spots on Ceres are an alien mining colony. Highly unlikely but who knows.

Protip: If you have SLI, I've found that dedicating the 2nd GPU to the physx effects gives better and more consistent performance.

edit: for Witcher 3, disable HairworksAA and it performs great. It was a poor implementation.
