This statement doesn't clarify much, without comprehensive performance benchmarks. Do they mean low graphic settings with a 660 for 1080@60 fps? The 660 is a slow card! Are low graphic settings comparable to PS4's graphics or less?

How come their 4K@30 fps to 60 fps hardware suggestion jumps so dramatically? SLI 980's are far faster than a GTX 760.

Believe it of not the FPS jump is that hard mate; i have a 144hz monitor and making it run at 144/ over 60 changes the performance demands on the cards by a crazy amount....

From 30fps to 60 is a 100% increase. Did they mean with vsync on? That might explain it since turning on vsync has a big impact on performance. This is why I find Hoare's statement inconclusive about the game's performance. We still don't really know how it performs. So far all we have are vague claims by R*.

According to this page, a GTX 980 has 130% more pixel fill-rate than a GTX 760. That extra percentage should cover the extra overhead that you point out might be needed, since few games scale 1:1 with GPU theoretical performance. Pixel fill-rate directly impacts high resolutions like 4K according to that page:

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 980 is a better choice, and very much so.

So lets see if a single GTX 980 gives us more than 2X the framerate of a GTX 760 @ 4K resolution in GTA V. In that case, SLI would not be required for 60fps @ 4K, unless the game is poorly optimized.

Hoare's statement gives me some concern that we should throw 4X or more the GPU horsepower for 2X the performance.

4k is a massive jump in resolution?

It's the same resolution. Try reading what I said again. The only thing that changed is 30fps to 60fps. My first paragraph mentioned 1080p so that's where you mixed up the two paragraphs in your mental blender.

Try complaining to the city/county government or get a petition going. Get on your knees and beg the government because they're the ones upholding the duopoly. In some seriousness, they probably do write in some sort of service requirements that Comcast is supposed to deliver. Not like they enforce that regulation as you have found out.

IIRC my gripe was that the game is trying too much to be CoD. Is it improving or is it the same old lame kiddie 12 year old hyperactive pre-orgasm?

You have this all wrong. This is retro gaming from Day 1! It's edgy like that.

Sales of ‘Dying Light’ (-26%) are growing dimmer

Did Blue write their press release?

Yes it is. PoE is probably a bit low here only because the DRM-free GOG version is preferred by anyone who knows or cares about that.

Wow I had no idea he made a sequel! Not sure if I have the patience for it that I did back then! Well even back then I would play it for a while, die and then not try again for a week or two. The first game was slow, but it was very good for what it did. The sets were very well done. Good to hear we got a sequel 29 years later!

Good on France. It'd be nice if the governments everywhere started to adopt this sort of thing. I think big oil has had enough subsidies and tax loopholes they don't need, thank you very much. Solar panels and wind pods for everyone!

It sounds nice, yes. The road to hell is paved with... As was noted previously here in comments these laws can and do have negative consequences. Hey I know how bad is the environmental damage caused by coal mining and I also see these rooftops producing a huge amount of urban heating. I agree with goal I just question this socialist method "one size fits all" approach.

There are widespread human rights issues in this country. Poverty and starvation are just two of the countless symptoms. There are other causes too - child abuse being a big one. But it is my believe that a lot of the child abuse loops back to human rights issues suffered by the parents who take it out on their children and so the cycle continues.

The assumption that the analog-world model of licensing must fit this new and fast-evolving space is ignorant at best and dangerous at worst.

Well said!! Great read. Socialists despise crypto currencies because of the freedoms they bring so of course they are going to try to control and regulate it in every way they dream up.

Yeah 'arms' is different even from 'firearms.' Modern hoplophobia could just as easily be carried over into electric arms or pepper arms or whatever else is invented.
