Good news, though! They've figured out, after five years, that their current way of doing things (Everything in the system is loaded into every client's memory at full detail, no matter the location or whether it's even visible etc) is completely retarded. So all they need to do now is to completely rewrite that part of it. They estimate it'll be done by Q3 2018; so, in reality, by 2020 that part of it should be better!

You guys forgetting the post a month or so ago about how EA was going to hook up 2 players.. 1 spent money on big bad items, with a player that didn't so the other player would spend money after seeing their partner in god mode?

I think that was Activision.

AMD Shows Off 2018 Ryzen Processor Roadmap and Slashes Prices.

Even with these slashed prices, it would appear the best bang for the buck is the Core i5 8400.

Why would you ever pay for an 8600K?

Considering how Intel treats their customers, and put birdshit TIM in their processor, why would you get an Intel over a Ryzen?

Nice but not quite correct Wink .

Meltdown does not allow a "h@xx0r" to read protected areas in the processor but in (kernel) memory instead. That's quite a difference.

My bad, I did it off the top of my head.

I'm sure somehow they have something to do with players paying more money, somewhere.

“There’s a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset,”

Is it? I'd say that there's a clear need for VR to get significantly cheaper and less cumbersome.

Oh, and for some actual good games to come out on it.

SupCom was fantastic. I so wish we'd get another one.

Article says Taylor's working on something new. Hopefully it's more Supreme Commander and less Supreme Commander 2. But he wants to bust the genre out of its rut, so I guess we're probably going to get a 5-unit-cap tactical type game or something dumb.

I'm glad he's making another RTS. I never understood why he went with some inane caveman game (or whatever it was, I can't remember) for his Kickstarter rather than what everyone WANTED him to make.

And I doubt he'll make something stupid like that... Please don't let him make something stupid like that...

Pretty funny/shitty how the Meltdown bug was exposed right before CES for Intel. Might be a tough crowd.

I've been too busy dadding it over the last couple weeks, what's going on with intel and their horribly made new generation cores?

It's not just their new ones, this bug goes all the way back to 1995. And while Meltdown is primarily an Intel bug, Spectre is on every processor made since then.

Essentially the bug allows a h@xx0r to read protected areas in the processor in plain text. This means that literally anything you type can be read through it, utterly nullifying the most secure setups.

There is a fix for Meltdown, but it's basically causing the processor to put everything in separate threads/tables, and it's causing some pretty hefty slowdowns in certain areas (especially VMs).

Spectre will be much harder to patch, but fortunately also much harder to exploit. Meltdown is dead simple to exploit.

Big Fucking Gaming Display.

I don't imagine too many people have a PC setup where a 65 inch screen is all that useful...

That where you're wrong friend, I play on my 70" TV and have been waiting for something like this.

There are always exceptions.

And since you are the "many people" he refers to...
I doubt Nvidia invested in the R&D for just one person. My guess is there are quite a few who game on bigger screens.

The first generation of PC gamer is aging.. dot pitch and high resolution are probably becoming secondary concerns to overall size and legibility. My 80 year old father is now using a 32 inch TV for a computer monitor. It looks like ass but he's happy, so whatever.

I use a 32 inch TV myself, and I can't even imagine going bigger than that. For the typical PC - Desk setup, 65 inch is just waaaaaaaaaaaaay too large, so that massively limits your initial market to people who PC on their couch or something.

0.45% of Steam has a 4K monitor, but most of those are probably 27 or 30 inch, and those monitors will be only a few years old at most. I think Nvidia may be drastically overestimating their potential clientele here. It's not as if this is aimed at the console market either, this is purely a dedicated PC monitor.

Onlive and Gaikai didn't work out, let's just do it again! Maybe this time people will fall for it!

Five years from now they'll try yet again. Rolleyes

Whichever way you play you’ll be doing so with the highest levels of graphical fidelity

Bullshit. Graphical fidelity is one of the first things you sacrifice with cloud gaming. Games on cloud streams typically look like you're on Low settings on 720p...
