Confirm anything!!! I just want some price drops already on the 1070!

If the leaks are to be believed, the 2070 is going to launch soon at a lower price than the 1070, with slightly better performance.

That sounds a little...stupid...to me. Why/How would the 2070 be faster and cost less?


=-Rigs-=

It's a refresh gen, same like what they did with the... was it the 680? It was just a refresh of the 580? And that was also spun into the 770, so the same card essentially appeared in 3 different generations. Each time some very mild optimizations appeared, and the price dropped, but was essentially the same chip.

Supposedly, same shit happening with the 2xxx series. The 3xxx series is their next architecture Volta.

No, 600 series was Kepler, 500 series was Fermi refresh.

700 series was Kepler refresh.

900 series was Maxwell of course

1000 series is Pascal as mentioned.


I wouldn't expect a refreshed Pascal so soon. Volta actually was supposed to be delivered to DoD this quarter, I'm sure consumers won't see it until it's expected to arrive.

Blue, Salvation Army will probably take most of what you don't want provided it's clean (in the case of clothing) and working (in the case of anything else).

Just throwing out suggestions.

I have a lot of negative things to say about Nintendo because of terrible business decisions but I have to say that this was a pretty awesome thing that they did.

Christ, these sort of stories make me so damn sad (and mad at how fragile life is) but then some random people prove that Humanity is still a thing in this world.

Never-the-less though, the world still is less without Gabe in it.

I've been replaying this game with an additional couple of friends. Soooo much better playing it with a group. We're not a full 4 yet, but 3 out of 4 ain't bad.

Can't wait for 1.6. Supposed to be an amazing update.

THANK YOU OBAMA!!! Edward Snowden should have been on that list.

President Obama will be known as one of the greatest Presidents in the history of the United States and drumpf will be nothing but an ugly forgotten footnote.

Realize that this isn't necessarily Obama being a good guy. Julian Assange just recently said he'd turn himself in if Obama pardons Manning...

Chew on that for a bit.

I imagine he's referring to multiplayer not building up your readiness score, or whatever, so you're not stuck getting the shit single player ending unless you do literally every single fetch quest ever imagined in the history of gaming. (Something they later patched out by having the better endings require less "warscore" or whatever inane crap it was called.)

It was one of the worst systems ever implemented in a game. I'm glad to see they finally woke up over there.

I was legitimately pissed when I found out that I HAD to play multiplayer to up that bullshit score on my playthrough. I bought a fucking single player game SO I DIDN'T HAVE TO PLAY THE FUCKING THING ONLINE. Why are you adding online bullshit to my fucking single player game?

WTF?!

The next version of Windows Update will let you opt out of new drivers.

Thank god. I just reinstalled windows on my machine, and trying to make sure that the only drivers that ever were installed for my video card were a specific set (I didn't want the latest nVidia drivers because there's issues with that set, I had a specific known good set of drivers to use) was a bear. I don't think I ever got my video drivers installed before Windows decided to do it.

M$ Windows Store is still at least a generation behind as a game client compare to Steam, Origin or even Uplay....

Which follows, as Steam is 13 years old now..

So Nvidia is pimping ME Andromeda, even though the whole HDR thing for consoles runs ATI.

*is confuzzled*

Unless it's also coming to Nintendo's new system as well..

Compared to the other platforms, UPlay is actually pretty subdued. Not in your face at all, and it works well for me. Also mostly easy to figure out what is going on.

Single player more than made up for the $60 price tag of the game.

Ugh, such click bait on that 7700k "article"

The 7700k was tested at LESS THAN 1% slower than the 6700k clock for clock. Thus meaning that it's within the natural variance. So it's the same speed clock per clock as the 6700k.

Which is what Intel was saying all along.

Cool, very classy, CDProjekt Red.

I own NWN and NWN2(with all expansions) on disc... they were that old.

This is a very nice move for the old schoolers.

My Gog catalog is starting to rival my Steam behemoth at this point.

I own multiple copies of NWN on CD because of all the different editions that came out.

Yup...

When I was active duty Army, they gave us shots. We would do some push ups after getting the shot, which would greatly relieve the pain of the shot.

Give it a try.

I remember in a BF4 match, trying to land a transport chopper on one of the roofs on zavod, and i had too much speed, so the chopper just slid off the roof. I was TRYING to give my wookie teammates a place to snipe from, but no, BAN, with the reason "THE CHOPPER IS NOT A TAXI".


..... But the transport chopper IS a taxi! It's for transporting troops to and from the battle!

FYI - I have the latest drivers with no Geforce Experience and I don't see any of the telemetry stuff running.

Yeah, it's probably GeForce Experience that has the telemetry, not the drivers.

Anyways, back on track here...

Did anyone else notice that they changed the conquest mode back to kills taking a ticket from the enemy team?

Also they're gimping the armor, and giving support a way to deal with heavy armor.

Sooo basically all the interesting design decisions that I actually enjoyed they're removing.

Just once I'd like to see them actually stick to their guns and release the game THEY designed, not the game designed by the most vocal 1% of users...

I LIKED that vehicles were an actual threat, and that you had to work together as a team to take them down. It was REFRESHING to not have another battlefield where the vehicles weren't just "crawling coffins" or "flying coffins" as my team used to call them...

And The ticket thing, I liked the new system, it made people PTFO, which is getting worse and worse with every wave of players new to the franchise. Oh well, back to everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off I guess...

But it is a pub game, and just like their Star Wars skin game, no one takes down the walkers - so Rebels always lose. Same way with this BETA. You would get in a tank and go 50-1. That isn't a balanced game.

No, the issue is that your team never worked together to take down a tank. 3 infantry focusing a tank could take one out with great ease and efficiency.

i5 6600K is the minimum? I'm sure processors from 2-3 generations ago will work, but it's unusual to list such a new and higher-end processor as the bare minimum.

PFFT minimum requirements don't mean shit since CPU advancement has slowed to a crawl since around 2006. We've been getting maybe 10% per generation, people who think they would be getting low fps in an i5 2500K are fucking idiots, the new processors will be barely faster than that because most software workloads can't be parallelized. Multi-core can only work on parts of the code that are tractable to being split up and are not interdependent.

yeah.... no

As I already said, friend with 2500k and GTX 1080, software engineer, not a noob, bad framerates in BF1.

As I also already said, this is the first BF game not to be released on PS3, and XB360. This is the first true "current gen" BF game.

And more to your point, the 2500k doesn't have hyper-threading, which is a big deal, That was the 2600k. 4 threads vs 8 is a big deal. Also I've been told from several friend's reports that the performance is fine once you hit the 3770k and up.

And all of this is GREAT NEWS for PC gaming, more games that actually puts some demand on the hardware, we should be rejoicing. Have you ever seen the CPU usage during a BF 64-player CONQ game? all 8 threads are highly active, this is almost completely unheard of with any other AAA game.

Your friend has other shit going on. I have a 2500K at 4.5GHz, game ran perfect, all maxed out except render scale at default. I too have a GTX 1080, and ran the game at 2560x1440.

EDIT: Also, I work on the support side of the I.T. dept. in my company, and all the developers I know are quite "noob" ish when it comes to issues on their computer. They don't know what to do or how to fix it. So being a developer does not necessarily mean anything.
