Normally I would balk at the thought of a big corporation recording and storing what people say. But having heard and seen the horrendous things that people say to one another in chat in Overwatch there is no other way there would be any deterrent at all to someone being a complete shit bag. I despise the idea of giving out my phone number to any corporation, especially one as greedy and unsavory as Activision/Blizzard but given how despicable people were in the paid game I shudder to think how bad it could get in the free version if they didn't do something like this.

As weird as it is, you can likely get away with using a $10-15 burner phone to avoid giving them your actual number unless it regularly forces you into a two-factor ID through the phone you chose.

And good luck if you lose that phone number or access to it. Lose access to your account.

I'm only in the market for 3090's for the foreseeable future. Especially EVGA 3090's.

I don't give a damn about games. I need VRAM for my language models. 2x3090 is just barely enough to fit a lightweight version of GPT-NeoX for fine tuning.

40xx series does nothing in the VRAM department, so there is no reason to look at that generation.
The fact that Nvidia intends to sell 12 GB VRAM 4000 series cards means they have their heads up their ass. The fact that they are selling 3000 series cards with 8 and 12 GB of VRAM means they had their heads up their ass already. Also don't forget expect triple slot cards and power requirements through the roof.

yeah the 4080 12GB is 100% bullshit. 12GB is not enough today for a top end gamer card, and only 192 bit memory bus too. that'll start hitting memory limits sooner rather than later which is completely unacceptable for an $800 card. for that price it needs to last the entire product cycle. it SHOULD be a 4070.

They've got plenty of 3070s left to sell you for a 70 class card. That or the used market. Which is really where people should be looking. This is Turing aka rtx 2000 cards again, except worse. A 4080 12GB aka the real 4070 for $899 is hilarious though.

The only interesting thing was they only priced the 4090 at $1599, so $100 more than the 3090. Anyway, its all for pricing room once AMD's stuff is announced and testing sorts out who does what well and wins overall. Nvidia has to sell off all of those left over 30 series cards as well as deal with the crypto sell off that should kick off in a few weeks.

Man the patching for UE4 games is the absolute worst. Even with an M.2, this patching process brought my computer to a halt. Just like Insurgency and ARK.

Curious to check out the patch though.

Its actually better than it used to be for Conan. They even reduced the install size from 105GB to 85GB. But yeah, UE4... meh.

I'd like to give this a try but I ain't playing without mods that make the game single-player friendly and less grindy. Did this update break mods? I need my carry weight bump and unlimited skill points.

The dev kit for the new patch has been out a week or two I think. Some mods have already been updated so its down to the mod makers. The two building ones I use thankfully already are good to go.

*AMD will announce its next generation Ryzen processors on August 29.
*NVIDIA & AMD GPU Prices Expected To Fall Further By End of August.

I am looking to upgrade my 8 year old desktop, is this a good time, or it's better to wait for the next graphics cards/AMD cpu's ?

Wait until the end of the month at least. It all depends on your budget, what screen res you run at etc.. The low end graphics cards I doubt will drop below $200 for the entry level but things be crazy yo. Best deals as it were will be on the fire sale high tier gpu's once the new stuff is announced. The current gen cpu's are a great deal that could go cheaper and at best you'll see the new stuff just bring back the release prices for the previous generations. Namely, the new cpus will be $300 for a top end 6 core, $400-450 for an 8 core and so on. That is the best case scenario in my view. The new stuff will be kept up price wise to move out the old products so the prices don't completely crash.

For my next GPU purchase, I'm pretty sure I'm going to do what I did when I bought my GTX 1080 TI for $600... I'm just going to buy the best card I can when the 4000 series is announced. I need an AMD card this time around, so hopefully the RX 6900XT is nearing $600 by then.

Even if the next gen cards are available and reasonably priced, my board from 2018 is only PCI 3.0 (so I will be leaving performance on the table) and I also don't want to deal with the absurd power requirements they are going to have.

AMD's upcoming cards are rumored to be much more frugal than Nvidia's and that PCIe 3.0 16x probably won't bottleneck much if anything at all until testing proves otherwise.

Undervolting is also always an option and can cut down almost as 3 quarters of the power consumption depending on how low you're willing to go.

For example, my current 3070 at default settings with power limits at 120% can guzzle up to 265 watts. 100% will guzzle 220W. A simple undervolt resulting in a higher than default clock ( by default it hovers around 1850mhz, the UV drops it down to ~180-190W, this "performance" focused undervolt runs at 1965mhz with a 900mv cap ).

This "performance" focused undervolt has better perf than even the 120% power default settings 265W config and basically slashed ~80W out of 265W with a slight performance bump.

You can have similar results on AMD cards ( RDNA 2 and 1 at least ).

Nvidia pushes them way too far up into inefficiency territory.

The second UV setting is at 800mv and hits 1770mhz, resulting in a barely noticeable perf drop compared to defaults, around 3 to 4%. Power consumption drops to around 140-160W, sometimes lower.

3rd UV setting is at 712mv and hits 1530mhz, perf drop is around 10% and power consumption hovers around 100 to 120W. This is basically my go to setting on hot summer days when I don't need the extra oomph. When I do, I go with setting #2.

I also have a last UV setting at 667mv ( the lowest Ampere will go ) at 1335mhz that I use when I don't game to minimize desktop power consumption or for games that aren't very demanding. Power consumption hovers in the 60 to 80W range when pushed to 100% usage and performance still kicks some serious ass. Otherwise it can go as low as 45-50W under non-100% usage ( altho not idle, idle is around 17-20W ).

For around half the power consumption, you still have 90% of the performance and for almost a quarter of the power consumption you can have about 70-80% of the default settings performance.

Hope that helps folks around here in their decision making process. Altho ofc YMMV with NV's 4000 series and AMD's 7000 series.

Nice underclocks, good to see more data out there. Undervolting is fast becoming a necessary thing as these hardware companies clock the parts as high as possible to compete on performance. Its been almost a requirement to undervolt AMD gpus since the r9 290 and especially the rx400-500 "polaris" cards as AMD would clock them high enough to guarantee stablility and performance. Much of the time, the chips when undervolted were more stable.

Would love a RDR remaster. Bought RDR2 day1 on PC and just couldn't get into it. Still installed so hopefully I'll go back, but I still remember crossing the bridge into Mexico during the thunderstorm (pretty sure its part of the story) in RDR, was epic.

2 is better, but the linear first few hours is a bummer decision

Yup, as evidenced by the multiplayer story campaign being more interesting and less time consuming. One day I'll get back to single player as I do like the game.

Are they actually cutting off FC3 completely? As in I can't install it at all? I have it on Steam and its connected as required to my ubi account. I have to buy the season pass to FC5 to play it again? Yet another reason why I ignore Ubi these days. I haven't bought anything from them since Div2. Got Valhalla for free.

Heh, leaves a lot to be desired is an understatement. The only thing saving grace for Nvidia here would be to drop the price on it drastically. Worse than the panned 6400/6500 AMD cards and maybe worse than Intel's fabled new cards that may release this year.

Anything has to be better than the current systems.

Yeah a lot of good games have gotten crappy reviews over some really stupid shit that has nothing to do with actual gameplay.



Sometimes there are things that are mort important than gameplay.

All I see is coping when I see sites try to fight review bombing.
It's like trying to ban protests.
If you're that afraid of criticism, no matter the criticism, boo f'in hoo.
Some of us want to know what the game is like and not the opinion of some review-bombing, basement dwelling incel upset because there's a woman with a prosthetic arm in a World War II game that is known for its zany gameiness.

And then BF 2042 showed up.

Cool beans - except the Battle Pass bullshite. I wish they'd release an NPC editor so people could populate the world and create text for said NPCs. That's where the game falls down for me. There's no real life to the world with the NPCs as is. Still, I love this game.

The Pippi mod does EXACTLY that.

Sweet! Thanks for the heads up on that! Do you know of any servers utilizing it?

Many, just look on the game's Steam forum community cervers section. That or official game forums at funcom's site. I think most are roleplaying ones though.
