Bah, just use a PS4 controller over standard Bluetooth and install Inputmapper to tricks games into thinking it's a 360 controller. Even doubles as a mouse pad for emergencies.

Yeah, I've been pretty happy with that.


wow, interesting. does force feedback/vibration work with a PS4 controller on windows?

but many people i know just install steam and play free to play games. does that mean they would not be able to play anymore unless they buy a game? then the move looks more like for financial reasons than fighting spammers.

that was very interesting, esp. the sample image: if you see 2 shades (left/right) instead of 4 (each corner), you have a limited color range:

any nvidia + HDMI users here affected? wondering if displayport is affected, i didn't understand this message from nvidia:

thanks for linking the asus X99-blowing-up-the-cpu article after they came to a conclusion rather than when the article came out (which would be frustrating), it was interesting.

It's amazing for games that support analog movement because you can go from creeping along very slowly to a full run by varying the pressure that you put on the stick just like when you use an xbox360 controller. That variable movement speed works great in games like BF3/4 and any ARMA games where sneaking around is beneficial. For games that don't support analog movement, you just set the stick to WASD or whatever and it can be changed on the fly.

this is very interesting. i always wondered why they didnt make keyboards with a removable analogue stick in the wasd area; variable movements is very important. but moving it with the thumb makes other fingers free which is even better.
will look into the logitech G13.

Dumb rumor. Why would they skip 800 series? Won't happen. It's gonna be 20nm too, I don't care what your grandmother heard. >:O

Supposedly they want to just align the model numbers with the mobile variants (980M) to avoid marketplace confusion.

Which paradoxically creates more confusion between a 980m which is a LOT SLOWER than a desktop 980. A lot of people I know get surprised when I tell them. Same thing that hapenned back then when the core 2 duos were released in the 7000 range in the mobile space instead of the desktop 6000 range and a lot of people argued the mobile was faster even tho it had less cache, less mhz, were exactly the same achitecture and couldn't use as much power.

I swear the number of times I had to shake my heads at the stupid...


it seems its the same with CPUs, eg. a laptop i7-3xxx is much slower than a desktop i7-3xxx, in fact they say a laptop i7 is comparable to a desktop i3:
