Anyway, this isn't about performance, this is about getting away from the reliance on Microsoft and DX, which is never a bad thing, imo.

Quoted for truth.

The only thing keeping a Windows install around on my machine is to play games. If Vulkan takes off and developers use it for the games I would like to play, then I can get rid of Windows entirely.

I have contemplated the idea of Lasik for quite a while but then I read reports like this and it makes me want to just stick with my glasses.

Didn't install these drivers, the games I already play still work fine.

Are we seeing a comeback of AnnointedSword under a different name?

I may not be able to over the weekend as much as I want, as thought the headset works fine with my glasses, it presses them against my face,which is quite uncomfortable.

This is one of the major problems I have as well with the OR and Vive. They are just insanely uncomfortable to wear for any decent length of time. Also, having your glasses pressed in to your face changes your focal point on the lens which, at least for me, ends up giving me headaches and making the view presented to feel not like my own.

I think VR is still, as someone else said, at least 5-10 years out before it becomes viable for the mainstream. I've tried the Occulus with DK1 and I recently tried the Vive. They're just not comfortable with my glasses on and, even barring that, it just doesn't feel right to me. I can't shake the feeling that the perspective I am seeing is not my own so there's a disconnect for me.

Ah, the Celeron 300A and corresponding Abit board that made overclocking it so remarkably simple. I think a lot of us old farts got their start with that chip.

Higher clock counts now are great for ePeen measurement but CPUs are no longer the bottleneck in system performance and haven't been, really, in a long while.

What we need to see is that with everybody and their mother having a multicore CPU is improvements in multi-threading applications.

I'm not clicking on the article. I assume that it's clickbait.

It's not clickbait, it's a quote from John Taylor, their Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.

2. AMD Zen Will Compete Favorably with Intel. May 17, 2016, 16:50 Burrito of Peace
 
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

[Takes a deep breath]

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I guess if they're comparing Zen to Sandy Bridge that might be true. AMD has been dogshit for almost a full decade now on the CPU side.

So, I have a near silent gaming PC right now. I went with both liquid cooling and a Fractal Design case with a fan controller. I LOVE FD's fans because although they are quiet, they remarkably move a bunch of air.

Another thing I did was ditch spinning rust. Too much noise and too much heat. Picked up a 512GB Samsung SSD and all the big storage is on the NAS elsewhere.

Looks good.

It does, but isn't it weird there isn't more excitement for it?

Not really. This is a product from CA and a lot of us who bought in to the Total Ware series are just a little bit more than leery about the state of the "finished" product.

Can only hope that Vulcan takes off in a big way.

I think we'll see that. Most notably, UE4, Source 2, and id Tech 6 already natively support it and Unity is working on supporting it as well. You've also got Intel, AMD, and Nvidia supporting it as well as all the tiny SOC companies (ARM, Samsung, and Qualcomm). So, for games, that covers the entire spectrum.

I was watching a development video where someone was using UE4 and explaining that, by using Vulkan, they could simultaneously release on Windows, Linux, and Android because the pipeline in UE4 could spit out executables and binaries simultaneously.

About an hour in to it and really digging it. It's cut out of some of the density of CK2 and streamlined a lot of the interface so it is much, much more approachable.

First racing game (that I can remember) that simulate weather conditions with water ponds that affect car handling as you drive through them on the track...

That would be incorrect. The first dedicated racing game to model weather and its effect on traction was Geoff Crammond's World Circuit that was released in 1991.

I used to race the shit out of that game against my dad back in the day. We didn't have racing wheels back then, so we used CH's flight yoke and sliding yaw pedals to simulate a wheel and pedal setup.
