There were some interesting DICE replies in a BF4 Reddit thread in which many people were posting significant FPS gains after they unparked their CPU cores; DICE basically said they were looking into it while also stating that Win 8 makes better/more efficient use of CPU's than Win 7.

What I'm REALLY interested in seeing are comparisons with Mantle next month; I'm hoping it makes the Win 7 vs Win 8 debate a moo point.

Yes that's it. Now I remember I've been seeing this being said in various forums. The HardOCP comparison is an interesting idea but not thoroughly done or investigated.

Or maybe it's just because Win8 is a bit leaner (tablet optimized) and thus there are some more resources for the game.

Maybe if the Win7 install was tweaked by (stopping unnecessary services etc) it could be just as fast. Double checked and I don't see that they tweaked either OS besides optimizing for SSD.

If you install the SP1 Win7 disc, it is better optimized for SSD, unlike the original Win7 disc. Installing SP1 afterwards isn't the same.

I rooted for the underdog by pre-ordering it (RO:2) but I just couldn't get into it, I should probably give it another chance.

It's been improved a lot since release! Try it again!

Haven't they done enough damage already? He's calling for more government power to supposedly 'protect our privacy'? Are people that stupid to believe the authorities even after what we've learned thus far?

2. LG smart TV snooping extends to home networks, second blogger says. Nov 22, 2013, 00:56 LittleMe
 
Well don't expect the Govt to come to your rescue. If you do, you're an idiot. Take actions for yourself and spread the word as did Ars. The customer is the boss. If people alter their buying decisions then LG will be forced to change for the better.

I can see a demand for routers and software that blocks this sort of big-brother spying traffic. The market will adjust.

There were a few moments where I got a distinct DOOM vibe in Rage. Not all the time of course, but it was a nice surprise to get that. IMO the game is good and certainly worth at least $5 (and more) for FPS fans. I hope they continue the series as long as they improve upon it.

You can trust us with your privacy, and we'll be sure to destroy it. But yes, you can be foolish enough to trust us. To save some face, we sued the government after ambitiously and surreptitiously cooperating with them for a long time now. You don't even know the half of what we've done.

Guys the game is better with the new patch. Thank you for that! Enjoying it. Looking forward to the new upcoming map. Game isn't perfect but it's fun and the big battles can be rather epic.

That's the point of it. The Fed can't steal the value of them by inflating away the value. That's precisely why the coins are valuable. It's a decentralized currency. We don't want your stinking regulations!!!

I'm not really sure why the anti-government types have it out for the federal reserve. We haven't had unhealthy inflation in this country since the 70s. What other federal agency can claim 30 years of success?

The interesting thing here is that technology has created a speculative instrument that it is impossible to regulate. How long before hedge funds start encoding their assets in a similar way? Next time Wall Street tanks our economy, we might not even know who did it.

That's not true. We have suffered a lot of inflation as well as bubbles and bursts. The price inflation has also been hidden because they play very complicated games with how they do it and that we've exported our inflation because we have the petro-dollar. This is not anti-government. The Fed isn't the government! We aren't even allowed to audit them or even know who they are. No agency of government can over-rule them.

Ever considered that the seemingly high prices of the coins is because there's huge demand out there for a currency that can't be destroyed and manipulated as ours has? There's good reason to speculate on them.

Yes, I am implying that the situation is worse than we see now. The next bubble to pop I believe will be the value of our money, not real estate or the stock market as in the past. They've pumped trillions of money out of thin air into the economy and it's only a matter of time before the dam bursts and we have an awakening as to the shell game we've been playing with this fake money.

Please, take a few hours to learn more about these Fed notes (it's not really money) and the valid criticisms of the system, especially since we all spend so much of our lives working for them.

He's doing exactly what those who put him there wanted him to do. In that regard he's doing a great job!! His campaign was corporate propaganda and liberal rhetoric nonsense backed by nothing. Nevermind that his legacy is a trail of broken promises and a disillusioned populace.

While I agree it's better for the amount of items, it's just easier with the Workshop.

Easier yes but Workshop is much more limited. That's what people use when they just want easy 'one click' mod installs. There's a price to pay for such simplicity. Even Nexus Mod Manager is limited compared to Wrye Bash, Mod Organizer and TES5edit.

Hope they are using a new engine and not continuing to milk the current one.

The current engine would be fine as long as they spend a lot of time fixing it's numerous failings. Really, Creation engine is fantastic for modding but it's very buggy and it needs a lot of work to fix. Also, 64bits is long overdue! I somehow doubt Bethesda is willing to invest in it which is a real shame (on them).

Yeah it looks really clunky with those bad animations and re-used sounds. It's disappointing they've made so little progress on the actual gameplay. I like the new action bar though. I think the problem with this vid is it's not focusing on what they've actually improved. But that axe animation is terribad and who holds one sideways like that?! In Amerika we hold the sharp edge facing away or down! AAaaand we don't look back at explosions.

It's a good game, I just hate how the camera is tied to controls so that if you want to turn hard you are facing backwards and can't see where you are flying. Fun game though and they've done a quality job to say the least. I'm very interested in the land/tank side of the game whenever that's available!

The only thing that drives me nuts about YT right now is having to manually set the screen rez on every video, instead of a global setting saved somewhere (or am I missing one???).

Yes the new rez selection method is bad and buggy. 320p for every vid when I open it. They trying to cut bandwidth costs? That's my conclusion. And selecting 720 or 1080p often locks up the video because the rez is changed while the vid is playing and now YT doens't like that. Then I have to refresh the page to try again.

Anyone playing it yet?

Yes I'm not having as many problems as the reviewer. I think his score was an over reaction. It's a fun game! But it's so arcadey and I still feel that the maps are designed around 32 players more than 64. I love the spectator mode and the game is silky smooth at 120hz for me on a 680 oc on mostly high settings. For me, Project Reality (for BF2) is a much better game. I want a deeper game experience. Also the client-side hit reg is still bothersome and for those sensitive to it, they will hate BF4. What a waste of a fantastic game engine on such a narrow arcadey experience. So much more could be done with it if we could mod it.

But it's a good game and I recommend it for BF/COD fans. All I'm talking about here is the MP, not SP.

I agree that AMD is behind nV on the top performance tier after finally beating (raw performance) the 780/titan after this amount of time. But price/performance wise they are competing.

I'm buying a monitor now and the nV's lightboost is a very nice feature for eliminating motion blur (120hz). I need to do more research but I don't think AMD has something similar do they?

edit: yes it works with AMD cards apparently! http://tinyurl.com/l83z882
