Well you won't see me disagreeing. Ever since they dumped CRT's the screen display market is a collection of garbage. But oLEDS for the first time in decades have the potential to reach accepted phosphorous decay rates, aka 10 to 15 years image perfect, and then there will be brightness and gamma problems showing.

15 years is for me the range a screen has to last.

The LG Flagship OLED TV performed extremely well throughout all of the lab tests and viewing tests. It is unquestionably the best performing TV that we have ever tested or watched… with absolutely stunning and beautiful picture quality across the board. In terms of picture quality the LG OLED TV is visually indistinguishable from perfect. Even in terms of the exacting and precise lab measurements it is close to ideal.

Could it be? Could this fucking horrible LCD tech finally die?

Of course, you pay (currently) $6,000 US for perfection But prices are going to be going down and I want a simple 28 or 30" OLED desktop screen! 0.1ms refresh times, perfect black values, infinite contrast, 30% less power use than LCD even with dynamic background clusters.

This is the future... finally.

I hope you'll enjoy buying a new one every ~ 4 years if you use your OLED a lot, though...


With 4 subpixels RGB and WHITE decay is no major problem anymore. White backgrounds are displayed via 1 of 4 subpixels, not by all 4 (and this was the major problem of OLED before they had a 4th subpixel per pixel)

So I am hopeful, but obviously not at 6000$

Bought a bunch of VW stock, don't get opportunities like this very often. Cheating or not, they're still more efficient and it will rebound.

You have the right idea, however in my mind that was premature. I'm not sure all the news is priced in. Just today it was learned that it wasnt just 500,000 American VW/Audi's but 8 million worldwide. There is going to be much bigger implications and bigger fines from multiple countries (France, Germany, EU, South Korea are all pretty pissed as well). So it will drop even more before the bottom hits. Remember the old adage, dont try to catch a falling knife.

Last news are 11 million actually just from VW and probably all cars using motor with ID "EA 189" (all Audi 2.0 TDI Euro 5 cars use it)

Hopefully the end of diesel engines in general... some even call it (cynically) the "Fukushima of Diesel Engines" ^^

Also interesting imo is that cars with such motors (And generally diesel cars) could actually lose the Euro 5 classification and thus be forbidden from entering inner cities (like trucks).

All this as EU is just finalizing Euro 6 classification which is much tougher on (you guessed it) diesel engines.

I wonder if those limits are even possible to be met by diesel engines... if realistic driving tests are done the answer is probably no. But that's a big IF

Preposterous. There's no way on earth a SF game running on Unreal Engine requires 6gb to run. Why do they say these things?

That aside I also doubt you really need a fancy i5-4690K or a GTX 960 to run this game properly ^^

Looking forward to RSI crashing and burning. Too bad for the space sim genre, but at least this might put an end to this kind of pay-to-win gaming.

It would also put an end to space sims in general for the next decades, so either you are a hoping for your favorite? genre to die, or you didn't consider that.

Look at the alternative, a trucker simulation in space that is ED, EVE online, excel spreadsheets in space. And what else? That's right. You can count the decent non MMO spacesims on 1 hand, and modern ones that offer proper SP campaign with 1 finger.

Well, and of course there is always Smarts own failed space MMO that is an empty graveyard of hope and dreams, but at least filled with ambition? Too bad ambition never makes for a good game.

From what i've read, its not just the cost of the part, but the loss of efficiency and performance once its used.

In terms of negative PR, I'd rather take a hit on fuel efficiency (very minor) and performance (average) than be caught destroying the environment and killing people in large cities with toxic exhaust 40 times above normal just to save a few cents per car...

Especially considering VW's motto was "Clean Diesel", and this is the really weird thing. Did VW not realize what a huge scandal that would be after it defended it's cheap diesel engines for decades and successfully blocked proper emission laws in the EU? (at least THAT makes sense now)

Ps.: And yes, I know a few cents is wrong, it is actually 77€ to 100€ per car And for other cars affected, the problem can't be easily fixed, because VW diesel engines are producing such horrible exhaust that you can't fix it without blowing 2l (and more!) per 100km extra just to clean the filters. It baffles me how we still even allow Diesel engines, especially when normal hybrid engines run 100km with 4l and less.

...its like asking AMD to have a decent OpenGL implementation.

Ouch, man. That was brutal. Might as well ask AMD to make a competitive, power conscious processor while we're at it.

Oh right, AMD makes CPUs. Totally forgot hooah!

This comment tree makes me SAD... I still run a Phenom 2 X6 and direly regret having chosen this over the I7 ;p But it was literally a third of the price. so competetive in power and performance, no, but in price (both CPU and system components), hell yes.

This news is even more hilarious (re: VW) when you are German, and thus were able to read these insider rumors that the reason they had to cheat was that the part that reduced emissions overall was like 10ct (no joke!) more expensive than the device to defeat JUST the emission test.

Or basically, neocon capitalism at its finest!

(And the German gov knew of this, for many many years.. the ADAC here in Germany is saying this for 10+ YEARS) And it doesn't just involve VW

Does Gears of War done well with that ?

Sure, but Battlefront was originally a FPS

If the drug is 62 years old, hopefully someone will come out with a generic. In the States, medical patents only last 15 years.

Also, this is the worst side of capitalism right here.

Even more incredible is that the drug used to cost $1 per tablet, and was raised a few years ago to $13 per tablet. Now this douche is raising it to $750 per. 750x increase in just a few years. For no reason, other than they can and people will pay instead of die.

Yeah this story... makes you realize why a "Mad Max" style world would not be all bad.
