News Comments > AMD Vega Graphics Cards and New CPUs Revealed

@Tipsy: Well, I think you would benefit more from a GTX 10 series upgrade than anything else since nVidia has that projection tech (SMP) in Pascal cards that the 980Ti does not have so VR gets a real nice boost.
A GTX 1080 or 1080Ti would be ideal to make a tangible difference because outside of VR the 980Ti and the 1070 are too close together in terms of performance.
The problem, of course, is that you can not buy a graphics card at the moment because of the stupid mining craze .

Also note that HardOCP has done extensive testing with VR titles and find that AMD cards have terrible latency when it comes to VR (despite their "VR Premium" stickers) which causes the headsets to revert to reprojection (a way of maintaining 90fps without having real frames to display in time) much more frequently than NV cards.

Vega may have solved some of this, but I doubt it since it's still GCN architecture. The fact that Vega is a faster card now helps, but I still think you're better off with an NV equivalent for VR.

CPU is also important for VR.

Also, you may want to wait and see if NV lowers their prices as a punch to the gut now that these cards are on their way.

Too bad the gameplay was actually pretty fun, imo. A sequel which improved on Andromeda with better writing would have had potential.

I noticed a discussion about 'Where is Star Marine?' in the comment section. Then noted that article is from a year ago, so things may have changed concerning the process. Just fyi...

Gah, I got sucked into this comment section without realizing I hadn't read the article (until now). Guess I was just thinking the original article from the other day was this one.

Pardon my epic derp.

Also pretty funny when you sit back and realize it's Derek Fucking Smart right back in the middle of shit. Sur-PRIZE!

It's daily... actually, hourly

and so on...

To answer your question from earlier; there's a big 3.0 patch that will have moon landings (including points of interests) as it's biggest feature. It's slated for late July.

There's a closed batch of players who get to test stuff early, and they're supposed to get their build sometime this week. Info will likely slip out once that happens, even though they're under NDA.

I must admit that I've fallen in to following Derek's tweats and posts concerning SC on the side as a sort of bad reality show fix. He makes up as much shit to throw at SC as he can possibly come up with. If there's any nuggets of truth in it the signal to noise ratio is off the chart.

Coutts & Co. loaned them the money. This is the Queen's bank. From what I understand their vetting process for acquiring a loan is very strict. If they managed to get a loan through that bank it's actually an indication they're doing quite well.

Derek claims he has insiders feeding him information, yet here's 3 -major- things that took him by complete surprise recently: The release of Star Marine (he was claiming it didn't exist right up to the release), the switch to Lumber Yard, and now this the same week he posted a big, supposed insider leak he received.

The only thing proven true from his "leak" was something that was mentioned on Reddit before he posted. It was about RSI -hiring- (because you do that when you're out of money) talent from YouTube to come work on the game as a cinematic designer.

Whatever the state of SC, don't trust DS for good intel.

Too bad they took this fantasy shit approach in ArmA 3. Not my kind of game.

Oh come on.. killing that 20'th level dragon with my paladin's vorpal bayonet in the Arma III volcano never gets old.

What's the final verdict on this one? There were some really mixed reactions at launch. I like classic, base building RTS's, which I believe this is not.. but if it's still good for other reasons I'd consider.

News Comments > John Guthrie Leaves Valve?
4. Re: John Guthrie Leaves Valve? Jun 16, 2017, 21:43 Drayth
 
Been reading Blue's since before I was daydreaming of how f'n amazing it will be to have two Voodoo 2's running Quake 2 once they're released.

Valve got to be where they're at by following their own successes down some (fiscally) wise paths. And as much as I wish their focus had remained more on game development (ESPECIALLY, YOU KNOW, THAT HALF-LIFE THING THEY CAME UP WITH), it's not hard to see how they got here.

A new Valve will emerge some day. I just wouldn't mind if it was sooner rather than later...

...oh wait, those Witcher guys. nm, we're good

You know when you're playing Overwatch and Torb gets potg and it's just him running somewhere random because his turret killed like 3 people during that time? That's what this trailer basically feels like...

Out of the (I assume) vast digital landscape that Destiny 2 encompasses, this is what we get..?
