It's a good choice, especially for a shooter. You could say CDPR mastered the 3rd person genre so why not give 1st person a go anyway.

Actually going to get this. Big fan of Final Fantasy games and VIII is the only one from IV onward that I never beat. Sure there are PC mods of the original but this is a nicely packaged remaster so why not. Back when Square made RPGs I really wanted to play instead of hack-and-slash.

What are we thinking it would take to build the equivalent of a PS5 right now? Guessing since it'll be AMD-based again: Ryzen 3600, Radeon RX5700XT, 16GB DDR4-3200, SSD, B450 motherboard, H210i case, throw Win 10 Home on and call it a day for 1080p/144fps gaming.

It's not just Nvidia, Intel is supporting integer scaling on their next gen hardware too. Both explanations sound reasonable

Acer Launches Predator XN253QX Monitor with 240 Hz & 0.4 ms G2G Response Time
TN panel, 1080p max resolution, and no HDR. No thank you.

Supports 240Hz and G-Sync, it's clearly an awesome gaming monitor and not ideal for much else.

Surprised the recommended spec for a game like this in 2019 is only a 4 core CPU.

[How much RAM do you need article] - Yeah, more like the August 2009 edition... what kind of dumb BS did I just read?

Agree was a garbage click-bate article. If I knew it was ZDnet wouldn't have clicked. Not a single bit of analysis or quantitative data. Blue's should know better than this.

3700X is an astoundingly good CPU, low power consumption, beats the 9900X in many productivity tests, and comes with a great cooler. That said, for gaming the 9700K and even the 9600K in many instances still beat it.

I'd love to like it. I just can't drive laps around circuits again and again.

Yea I'm with you, also don't get a feeling of speed doing laps on a car when I can race my real car on Autocross cheaply and have an exhilarating time. PCars2 does have some real roads though like California Highway 1 with is a long drive not a circuit.

[Update 10:30 AM] The VLC CVE on the National Vulnerability Database has now been updated, downgrading the severity of the issue from a Base Score of 9.8 (critical) to 5.5 (medium), with the change log also specifying that the “Victim must voluntarily interact with attack mechanism.”

Basically there is no issue playing a video file with VLC.

Consider Nintendo sues their fans or threatens with cease and desist anytime they use their IP for something unauthorized seems like they deserve this.

Really hope BG3 delivers. Love BG1, BG2, P:T, DA, DAI, etc. and miss playing D&D as a kid. Sorta imagine it being like an upgraded version of Divinity Original Sin 2.

Other than just comparing the IPC and dropping power consumption unrealistically there isn't a benefit to knowing benchmarks at only 4GHz peak. The boost clocks run at 4.6GHz for AMD and 5GHz for Intel so why not just compare them stock.

Has Amazon not heard of LOTRO? It's about the only way to see Tom Bombadil outside the books!
