You know what makes me glad I spent $380 on a GTX 970? The fact that this card can handle 99% of all pre existing games in 1440P is great but the fact that I'm maxing out my VRAM circa 2015 is SUPER COOL!!!

4 gigs of VRAM should have been a non starter at NVidia but nooooo we don't need to let a pretty solidly futureproof GPU have enough memory to last more than a year!

Seriously though... The GTX 970 eats up everything except Ark: Survival Evolved which requires a GTX 980 or higher just for max settings in 1080P at 50 frames per second. Why would they give a GPU that is slightly faster than the original Titan only 4 gigs????

It just doesn't really matter right now.

R9 290 4GB vs. R9 390 8GB.

The R9 390 and R9 290 are virtually identical, with roughly equivalent performance to the GTX970, and 8GB vs. 4GB does almost nothing.

Yup... there are a few niche situations where you can crank your VRAM use over 4GB, but that's all they are. And there won't be significantly more of those any time soon. For most titles you're not coming anywhere near 4GB at 1440p. It's cobbled together bullshit like indie titles and things like Skyrim with 5000 graphical mods sloppily shoehorned in that really test your VRAM.

With AMD and Nvidia both going to HBM2 memory in their next gen cards, it will cease to matter anyway as they'll be able to pack a lot more memory onto a single card.

If you feel the need to ban backers who aren't happy with your project, then your project is probably doomed. These are the people who made your shit possible when no one else wanted anything to do with you.

Denuvo got cracked a year ago...

You might want to actually read the article. Not every Denuvo game is cracked. The underlying concept has not been defeated, though one or two titles were eventually cracked.

Just Cause 3 remains uncracked after more than a month.

What makes the vive better than rift?

It'll likely be half the cost.

Do you really believe that? You think there's that much margin for HTC to undercut Oculus while matching or surpassing features/specs?

When they were talking about a $400 ballpark Oculus, HTC was already basically saying Vive would be "slightly more expensive" than the Rift. So while they may be able to price cheaper, "half" or even close to half, is probably out of the question.

So what does this mean for the original Eve game?

Nothing. This isn't a replacement or a sequel. It's just a little side project that spun out of a tech demo.

At $599 and they're not turning a profit at all, I would really like to see a breakdown on the manufacturing cost. Perhaps they're figuring in the software development cost plus there's going to be a loss of profit for warranty repair which I'm guessing is standard one year?

I'm thinking they are getting dunked on the screen costs. I doubt they even have a choice of manufacturer for those. I think the only one who makes screens applicable to their design is Samsung. The real issue there is, if thats the case, then no competitor is going to be able to drive the cost down much without cutting features and simply making a lower end product.

They need to pay for those "free" rifts to the original backers somehow.

According to shit they said on Twitter they aren't even profiting on the hardware at $599. They must have some serious manufacturing cost issues going.

Will be interesting to see how much they are eating when the financials come out.

Little higher than I expected. I was thinking around $450-500. But it's a high end peripheral and they know that their future competitors aren't going to be able to undercut them by much, if at all, without sacrificing hardware specs. According to Palmer Luckey, they are already selling at or below cost.

Unfortunately it looks like I'm not gonna be able to check this out because their compatibility tool says my USB 3.0 ports are incompatible for some reason, and because of my hardware configuration, I have no open slots in which to add a compatible USB 3.0 expansion card.

Oh well. Gives me time to see how things shake out anyway.

Some napkin math suggests this is around 7000 free Rifts being given away. Depending on the retail price they announce tomorrow, that's probably a total retail value higher than the total amount they made from their initial Kickstarter.

That's still not even pocket change for Suckerjerk.

Yeah there's no way in shit they'd be able to do this without Zuckerbucks backing it. I know they had other investors as well outside the Kickstarter but the bulk of the funding is Facebook moneys.

But hey at least they made the bulk of their money off investors instead of selling imaginary spaceships to suckers I guess.

Face it, until we can jack into the interwebs ala Snowcrash it ain't gonna' happen.

Cutter declaring your project a failure before it even launches is a pretty solid sign you're gonna be a success. Oculus should be excited.

I thought this was pretty cool considering a retail unit was never part of the expectation of backing. Some napkin math suggests this is around 7000 free Rifts being given away. Depending on the retail price they announce tomorrow, that's probably a total retail value higher than the total amount they made from their initial Kickstarter.

Much more interesting than the other Win10 exclusive crap, but the problem is that Windows 10 exclusives are also MS Store exclusives, and I'm not interested in more places in which to keep my games.
