And to rep the other side, I liked hour 1, hour 25 and all hours in-between. I think this is a great idea, I believe the first hour can give you a solid feeling for of the game.

I thought 10 was their last O/S?

If so, again we'll see you here when we see you here.

Win10 spies on you, so does the other electronics you have, almost assuredly. But ok, go with it. No worries, I liked 7 to.

Get the 56 with Freesync monitor, that will be enough for most if they waited for AMD until now. From what I read Vega 56 has 30 to 50 W more power consumption and exceeds 1070 in most tests. Hopefully the AIB Vega 56s will be ready by the 28th

I'm going to go with a dead-heat 56 vs 1070.

Can it get any closer with this 25 game avg?

Corporations are quite interesting, but what they do promote at least verbally is to keep an image of diversity and propers, they really do. In some ways they are actually throwing weight against Trump, so in this case... dew it!

My company is one of those big ones, there could be some egregious behavior exceptionally, sure. But in general it is a proper squeaky clean environment. Now do paying customers like all our fee's? Yah no.

The upgrade that some feel its a downgrade but it really is an upgrade upgrade. Oh well, choose well and if you are really smart(tm), someday you'll be the guy paying for this downgrade upgrade, that many others got for free.

How about this explanation.

We are told it takes years to get from draft to final product.

They were simply caught off guard with Nvidia crushing it between the 9xx to 10xx series. Their designs were for a generational step forward +25%, not for two or three steps forward in one round and they just now caught up.

It's a 1070/1080 at.... at a little more than 1070/1080 prices. It is what you get if you are an AMD only kind of a guy. The 10xx series was a monster step forward.

So you are telling me this is Darknet?

www.canadianpharmacy.com?

Yeah that's some real dark alley how the fuck did I end up here, thing. There has to be something more for it to become "dark". That's right on Time Square with a 500" ad-sign telling me "Cheap drugs here!".

PLUG,

I picked up an Oculus Rift and loaded up ELITE DANGEROUS.

Let me tell you.. it's probably the best gaming experience I've ever had. It's like VR was designed to be perfect for space flight sim.

Why does this apply to No Man's Sky No Man Should Buy? Elite is a much better game, play that instead. I goes on sale for like 15$ and horizons for 20$ too.

I bought House of the Dying Sun the other day, haven't played it yet, didn't know it had a VR patch for it until after I owned it, nice little surprise. Definitely looking forward to that and Snuggle Truck VR. Also wanting to get over the Alien Iso VR patch to. Time.

Yep, never count games still under development out.

If this becomes something very good in the end, I thank upfront all those that paid full retail to make this possible.

It's a sign on how much progress we really have made. It gets me to this day working on a customers system, that I hit everything else but a reboot sometimes and when I finally come up with that sage like thought and it works... the feeling of jeeze that got me. That used to be the first and second thing you tried back in XP's day.

A quick search suggests the graphics hardware is not available to run most modern games at or near 144 FPS @4k. Even two 1080tiís in SLI are only hitting around 60FPS in many games, seems like they could wait till 2019. Though Iím sure there are a lot of people who would(will) throw money their money at them regardless, because OMG 4K144GSYNCHDR!!!!!


4k - sharper
144hz - smooth and solid, in and out of games. Never going back.

You don't need the FPS to see and feel it.

That said, I do want this someday, but I've got some years still. 1440P 144hz will be my next target in a couple years.

That is probably my biggest beef with EA.

I wonder if they've programmed in Shrinkage in the cold north?

On a positive note, I just picked up Prey 2017 for thirty bucks. Holy shit it's totally worth it. I mean, it starts out slowly, but I play my games slowly anyway, scrounging every little nook and cranny to try and find every little thing.

Congratulations ;)! You'll be able to finish the main story in about 5 hours (I don't know if side missions count), while visiting the same 10 plus maps over and over in a backtracking record that beats SS2 easily to stretch out a short game. You might like it nevertheless if you liked SS2 because it's basically SS3 :)...

Took me longer than 5 hours and I have ZERO problem back-tracking, it lets me gain familiarity and opinions and a feeling of each area. I mean if I hated it... man I'd sure hate real life and this fucking office and home I'm in. Yup, Prey is a good one.

No its because everyone who might buy that game is obsessed with PUBG and that style of game currently.

Other than Overwatch.

Bad timing on release. The market is different right now.

I'm mostly of this belief. To me it is incredibly difficult now to get something new established, unless you have a devote following. It has to be good, but then it has to have the whole timing/word of mouth thing going. Hey finally something a great marketing team could make a difference on, but will fail since they aren't great.

Yeah WaltC has his reasons, but to me that was a bit thick, felt fanboish. The overall cost savings to me is little since I don't upgrade mb/cpu/ram that often, so this isn't really a compounding thing.

Intel/Nvidia for many years to me were undeniably better, sure AMD was cheaper and you got what you paid for along with the heat. Their CPU's lost over a decade with me, their GPU's are in and out of being competitive.

Currently the cpu's are competitive as CJ states, as all-arounders. Pure gaming the 7700K is still where it is at, could change as multi-cores become more ingrained. Nvidia has the lead currently with GPU's no question.

I only upgrade when something is approaching near a 50% increase or better. My i7 is old enough there are procs now doing that in overall benches. I'm trying to see Intel compete here before I make the AMD call. The thing is, it will be nearly $200 more the intel setup.

Currently running a 1700 with fast memory and it competes with any other Intel processor.

I'm not going to say I'm done with either, I don't care about their names, but what they offer. Good to see AMD competing.

That said, if I do go new proc, yep 1600 or 1700 with fast ram is what I'm now looking at.

Or maybe store your ammo in a more secure location that can't be destroyed by a commercial drone.

To me that is besides the point. There are many reasons drones don't need to be close to many things, military a no brainer. IMO they are a real conundrum overall. Cool yes, but it comes with a lot of issues.
