Everyone is overly negative about this. Seems like a great thing for me as a primarily PC gamer. Yes console ports have been poor in the past, but these two new consoles (XSX and PS5) are basically PCs: Ryzen 3700 downclocked / RDNA2 / shared 16GB GDDR6 RAM / PCI-E 3 or 4 nvme drives. It's likely that XSX is also using DX12 and some kind of Win10 kernel for a lot of its games too. Should be trivial to do a solid port this time around.

Gone gold and then delayed is odd... guess we're looking at a big day 1 patch, but that's normal these days anyway. Looking forward to this hopefully have my RTX 3070 by then because I really want to play it with ray tracing and DLSS.

Console = $500 + $60/year for online gaming = $920 per 7 year console cycle. Not hard to build a $1,000 PC that can do 144fps gaming and still do all the other computing tasks too.

All these fixes and improvements and yet file explorer still crashes with 2 folders open and copying from one to the other. Good job M$.

Yup, Explorer is the worst thing about Windows by far. I don't know why it's not more discussed how archaic the interface, font, icons, and functionality is compared to Linux Gnome or MacOS. It doesn't even have tabbed browsing which makes moving files around so much easier. Windows Terminal has a modern interface with tabs so I don't get what's going on here. Worst of all the stability is terrible when browsing network shares.

The only saving grace for Explorer is buried in View > Options > Change Folder and Search Options > View > "Launch folder in separate process" option makes it behave much better. Why this is not at least enabled by default is unbelievable.

Anyway, Win10 20H2 update installed in like 10 seconds and only changed the start theme from what I can tell, so it didn't do much at all this time.

Really hoping I can get my hands on a RTX 3070 in a reasonable time frame. I'm due for an upgrade and can't wait to see all these effects with ray tracing, DLSS, etc.

Ahead of its time and still no high refresh screen? I don't think so.

This looks terrible to me. Like a last-gen product. Not even seeing a parallax effect when you scope in just shows there is no attention to detail here, even PUBG does that. There was literally a better COD just a year ago and they keep shoveling this crap out with yearly releases.

Not sure how this is even news. Supporting a 10 year old CPU in a game that's supposed to be technologically cutting edge makes no sense. It should require Dx12 or better yet Vulkan too. Just support the latest and greatest and turn this into a 'game' already.

Nvidia solving a problem they created in the first place when they tried to haggle with TSMC for a discount followed by TSMC telling them to go pound sand which lead them to the inferior, dressed up 10nm Samsung option which isn't even their best process.

Yea but it's not hurting this launch at all. RTX 3000 is fantastic in benchmarks and still has performance/watt improvements over last gen. It seems a safe bet that a RTX 3000 Super update one year from now on TSMC 7nm will happen though.

At least TWO pre-purchases in the top ten best sellers? Must be nice.

True but for Baldur's Gate 3 it's worth it. So few good RPGs anymore I really hope the game is great.

I don't think you understand the way CPUs work. 1440p starts to become much more GPU heavy, then obviously up to 4K or so. 1080p is looked at because it puts almost no strain on the GPU and much more on the CPU. It's a CPU benchmark.

Anyway, the real confusion here is how a 8C/16T 3700X is currently $280. Now they are saying the cheapest Zen 3 8C/16T at launch is $450. They basically pulled an Intel with pricing. Hopefully there is a big performance gain to make it worthwhile.

Works great on my 4 year old GTX 1080, tested on Warzone for a bit too to try out Nvidia Reflex, no issues, running 150fps. Not using the GPU for audio though.

For fast paced games I'd never want to give up 144Hz.

Can't wait for BG3, it honestly looks much more interesting than Cyberpunk to me. Really want to play this and Demon's Souls.

Bloodborne, one of the best single player (although it does have online features) games ever made imo.

Hope they keep the bans coming.

Since the gaming industry and Microsoft in all their money and power can't get behind some kind of "game mode" for Windows that locks your computer into an environment all online games should require a phone and credit card number tied to an account just to play. It might sound obtrusive but I'd gladly do it if it could greatly diminish cheating.

8K gaming is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Maybe on the RTX 5080 it’ll be relevant. Just show me solid 1440p/144Hz for a reasonable price. For the 3090 I’d expect 4K/144Hz.

Happy about the much better art direction and RPG like elements (actually making decisions on your character).

But most of all I want the game to be more challenging with way more player agency. Diablo 3 is nothing more than a spamfest.

Been running stable tested on a few games all day. Great drivers so far. Looking forward to trying Reflex out in Warzone once it's patched in tomorrow.
