Wish I could say that finally doing these algorithms and measures like phone number text verification will help, hope it does. I don't understand why every game doesn't do this by now.

$70 is pretty steep, but it does look good for COD not going to lie. It's surprising to see big player maps come to COD with Ground War/Invasion modes filling the gap that the horrible death Battlefield left. Might get it we'll see.

Keeping my 5800X for now, but it's looking like the 7700X would be a nice step up for my gaming/productivity rig. Going B650E, DDR5 6000, PCIe 5.0 NVME isn't even out yet not rush. It's no surprise the 5800X3D still holds up in gaming benchmakrs with all that cache. 7800X3D will be a beast.

The game looks good by COD standards, and it’s cool to big have a big player mode to fill the void Battlefield left (haven’t got into a BF game since BF4). But $70 for this? Seems steep. Will wait a bit maybe a sale will come.

I haven't read much about COD MW2 but what is "all new gun handling"?

Apparently gunplay is quite a bit improved and more realistic. COD was notoriously known for every gun feeling like a mindless laser gun with no recoil. Whatever that means, it's still a game, not firing a real gun. But looking at gameplay it does look more interesting now. Maybe more like PUBG or one of the games known for having harder gun handling and realistic ballistics.

Besides the rediculous price tiers at announcement, RTX 4000 performance is still way ahead of RTX 3000 at the same price points, so what is with all this complaining?

I'm just waiting for a reasonably price $500-600 version (RTX 4060Ti or 4070?) and will see how it compares to my 3070FE and sell that if I want to upgrade.

ya, end of year 2030 maybe ^^

Ok, $600? Price would be reasonable for a RTX 4070, they will likely announce it in late Oct or so since that's how it usually goes. I got my RTX 3070 FE almost 2 years ago for $550. Turned out to be a cheap upgrade after selling my GTX 1080 for $250.

No it’s just more clickbate worthy of blocking the website. We have no idea how it’ll perform until reviews come out. CUDA cores, RTX and Tensor cores have gotten more performant per core each generation. Plus there are major clock speed increases compared to last gen this time.

These cards are way too expensive so waiting for a $500 version though. Maybe end of year.

Hope that From gets this mess figured out, loved playing all 7 Souls games online (well Sekiro didn't support jolly coop, but the rest did). Praise the sun \'[T]/

Win11 22H2 is running great here, but it doesn't have "something for everyone" when they still can't figure out when they will add tabs to File Explorer. The only 'feature' I care to see added.

Last time I played this with a couple friends we had fun, but definitely noticed a couple cheaters in a few of the games. This is a shame, but a major problem plaguing the entire gaming industry right now. There needs to be some kind of virtual environment Windows locks you into, MS please add this to Win11 23H2 or something. Why can't this be developed with competitive game makers. At the very least the bandadge is hardware level bans with a kernel anti-cheat driver, along with accounts tied to phone number and CC number. All of this stuff is sadly needed so badly in gaming now.

Well of course the human eye can see past 60fps, not to mention the MUCH lower input latency, that silly debate has been debunked countless times. It does feel that somewhere in the 144Hz or 165Hz monitor/fps region is the "sweet spot" for a lot of people, myself included, and 240Hz is mostly diminishing returns not to mentioning requiring increasingly higher performance and power consuption to achieve.

Looks fantastic can’t wait to play it with my 3070 build. Assuming DLSS will fall back to 2.4 or whatever without an overpriced 3.0 supporter GPU.

Well it’s been 2 years since RTX 3000 so this is right on time. The performance per watt gains sound impressive. The price however does not. I’ll wait for a ~$500 option, RTX 4070 8GB or whatever. Don’t need all this VRAM for my 1440p 165Hz setup anyway.

I would like to try this game, getting an RTX card last year to checking out all the RT features looks fun too. But yea too many problems still even after almost 2 years. If it ever hits 2.0 I’ll give it a shot.

Never played Suikoden II but always heard it was a great RPG of that era. Hope this remaster is good. Still gotta play FFVI Pixel Remaster.

This is strange, the 3060Ti and 3070 have always been the most power efficient of the RTX cards so far. Everything 3070Ti and up use GDDR6X memory but also draw 100W+ more power thus also needing more cooling. Seems like not a great idea to move to GDDR6X memory on the lower tier cards because of this.

It's nice that after all these years Sony finally supports their controller on PC. Plugging the DualSense into Steam brings up a link to this firmware too. Now if only game devs would put an option to switch to the PS button icons in their games on PC. Even FromSoftware (who started the Souls series on PS3 with Demon's Souls) doesn't even have PS buttons. You gotta mod Sekiro, Elden Ring, etc. for the buttons, then because of the mod you can't play them online. Oh well.

Will be interesting to see what Intel actually does with Raptor Lake. The Ryzen 7700X coming at $299 sounds like a very competitive price point to me.
