The Li-Fi technology used by Velmenni in the pilots is able to send data at up to 1GBps - more than 100-times faster than current Wi-Fi technologies.

Edit: GBps, not Gbps.

I just saw the blurb that they achieved 224GBps in lab conditions, holy hell.

Of course, with this being lightbased, and thus on direct line of sight only, it's going to be extremely limited in possible domestic usage.

True, but it does introduce a pretty neat security caveat being that its line of sight.

In other news AMD announced that the 8 billion dollars that they spend on some useless video technology and CEO bonuses is a good idea since they plan to just to take it out of stockholders dividends.

AMD stock doesnt pay dividends. So there's even less for shareholder value then that!

I thought they did that inhouse?

Imagine how bad it would be if they didn't make Windows 10 a forced update for many users. Oh yeah, that was an "error".

If my parents can figure out how not to update on their own then i'd hope it wouldnt be a problem for a 'pc gamer'...

Just a heads up, Steam owners of D:OS this will show up as a completely new game in your list. So if you want to give it a try, make sure you launch the right one.

Now, get out there and Be The Batman!

When the game reaches 5 bucks, I will.

Yep!!!! They blew it and even if they gave it away to PC players, I would be hesitant. WB should just get out of making any PC game.

They did give it away. I got it for free with one of my cards. Played for about 20 minutes. Laughed hysterically when the fps bottomed out when driving the battank thing. Yeah, what a great bundle game! Show me how with SLI'd 970s I can still achieve single digit fps in a game!

Have textures over 3.5gb of ram?

Too soon?

... it has been like 3-4 weeks in a row now... how is Counter Strike:GO still on this list? Who doesn't have CS:GO at this point?

Unless there was a mass banning recently, and cheaters are stockpiling more keys or something.

I don't have CSGO. I used to play CS religiously but I'm done with it.

Same, use to play in a clan pretty regularly. Dont have CS:GO and dont think i ever will unless they give it away for free.

They snapped up Hitachi a few years ago as well. Makes sense though WD, to my knowledge, has no Flash based drives. Mechanical drives are still useful as large capacity cheap storage, but its days are numbered.

It actually seems like more of a panic reaction given the Intel-Micron and Dell-EMC deals. If you look at details of the buyout it gets even worse, paying 19billion for SanDisk which is only worth 15billion. I dont think this will end well for Western Digital in the long run. However you might be able to scoop up a little profit on SanDisk's stock (SNDK) over the next 9 months as its currently trading at around 77$ a share and the buyout is for 85-86$ a share. But that has all kinds of hurtles and wont happen until 3q of next year.

Never understood the draw about watching baseball. To me its just as boring as Soccor (hard living in Europe). Basketball, Football (American), Rugby, those are entertaining to watch, at least for me.

Basketball is one of the great spectator sports. The court is fairly small, the ball is big and easy to see, there's constant movement and few play stoppages, the players wear little equipment so it's easy to see their facial expressions, it's extremely athletic.

I'm as confused about your post as harlock is about his sexual orientation. Was that a knock against basketball or not?

never understood the draw about watching guys play with balls... it was boring as shit when i was a kid, now its just ridiculous on so many levels

but i'll watch a couple guys beat the shit out of each other - thats entertaining... then they can really prove who is the REAL MAN and all that shit

Sounds like you got some real homophobic issues to work out. Good luck with that.

Complete pack says it encompasses all past, present and future valve games. Really, future? Perhaps they know something we don't, but with that deal I wish the PC version was delayed a few weeks.

They will not be on 3rd party websites because they will only be released through GFE.

GFE simply downloads and launches a silent install of the same exact driver package the website uses... so after someone downloads it you'll be able to get it from 3rd party sites.

If you were deadset on finding something to complain about then kudos... but you clearly have no idea how the program even works. :p

Thats how it currently works, not how it will work according to the announcement.

For a power user that typically overclocks their CPU & GPU and takes pride in getting the most performance out of their system this is a slap in the face. GF Experience has only ever under estimated my machine and settings it can handle or just screwed up SLI profiles. Once i uninstalled it i've yet to have a problem since. Typically i only install the driver and Physx, everything else is bloat and only another point of failure.

You call yourself a power user and don't even know that GFE can be set up any way you like with regard to optimal settings (which -yes- are retarded and often times more used to advertise nVidia exclusive features than the best settings for visual quality)?
It is a simple check box where you select whether you want GFE to automatically apply optimal settings or to even recommend them at all. There are a whopping three check boxes total to customize GFE optimal settings any way you like. I hope you can handle that as a self-proclaimed "power user"(?)...

Personally I'm allowing GFE to recommend because I sometimes like to compare their recommended to my actual preferred settings. I'm naturally not allowing automatic application of the recommended settings. That's obviously a setting only for uber n00bs who can not be bothered to go into in-game menus at all.

So i'm suppose to install the program so i can uncheck some boxes which happens to have the same effect as not installing it anyways... Thinking Ya sounds great!

You're supposed to optionally install it for the latest drivers in the future. It says so in the news.
You could have optionally installed it currently or in the past, like many people have, for easier and more convenient access (one-click-install basically) to the latest drivers. GFE takes up a whooping 3MB of RAM.

Whether you use any of the other features or not is up to you but to criticize features of the program that you are apparently not competent enough to handle is kinda sloppy, man.

Its not going to be optional however. Its going to be mandatory to be able to get the latest drivers. I prefer not using it at all, having the latest drivers, and then using NVInspector if i want something changed for my SLI profile.

Dude. Am I writing Chinese? That's exactly what I wrote. Optional for the latest drivers.
If you don't want to use it, fine, there may be other ways to obtain the drivers for manual installs in the future but GFE is an extremely easy going piece of software.

Don't get me wrong. I dislike the planned e-mail verification, too, but you criticized GFE for something it simply does not even do if set up correctly so I was only defending it against uninformed FUD, not on principle or against the planned changes.
I can optionally set up dozens of e-mail addresses courtesy of my ISP so I will probably use a throwaway address and just keep using GFE for convenience.

Reading comprehension is hard....Lets try again.. Its not going to be possible to get the latest Nvidia drivers without installing GFE. They will not be on 3rd party websites because they will only be released through GFE. Only old quarterly released drivers will be seperated. That is a problem. There is nothing remotely optional about that scheme if you want the updated drivers.
