Apparently the Canadian government is run by Nazi-loving Ukrainians although I am sure to some that would be seen as a step up from Trudeau.

What makes this even worse is that, initially, they had asked those who were able to get in to the room to tell Bethesda how they did it.

Even though we know little more about this game I can't wait to hear about how it was going to be the greatest SW game ever since 1313.

Seems like a poor choice of game to showcase these features though. In a game where you should always be moving it's counter-intuitive to stop and take a moment to really notice the reflections and lighting.

It's not going to create a Christmas Miracle where both sides stop fighting to look in to a puddle.

Then again it's not like there are options to pick and choose a game to showcase now is there?

Was hoping for a substantial hammer be brought down on Shitford but this seems more like a high school slapping match. Still nice to see him get dragged through the mud though.

He surely has earned it.

I've more or less written off the demo regardless of how it's being released. I don't want a light snack then told to wait nearly two weeks for the full meal.

I can't see Nvidia releasing a neutered Turing series. We already have most of that performance tied in to Pascal cards which are still very popular and without DLSS potential it's a case of "what you see is what you get".

Someone probably just spoofed the BIOS in order to release that result in to the wild. It happens a lot.

Then again I guess it depends on what AMD has to offer with Navi. We'll know more details later today and maybe the rumors alone have Nvidia scrambling for a more budget-oriented line up to be the killing blow to Pascal. If AMD comes out with a $250 GTX 1080 equivalent card that could really shake the tree in the short and long term.

As excited about the game as I am and how much I would like to play the demo I want to go in to it as blind as possible. RE2 is my favorite game of all time and I want to do as much as I can to recapture the excitement and uncertainty of the game like it's 1998.

I haven't been this excited about a release in a very long time.

There's something about it that I could see working for mobile if it was an isometric throw-back to something like Fallout but with an emphasis on darkness. Not scary, per say, but tactical thought in order to get from point a to point b.

Then I remember mobile gaming isn't interested in being good. It just wants you to spend $3 for a pack of flairs.

They can shove their lie of a "blind test" up their ass. Everyone with a clue knows that HardOCP are extreme AMD fanbois and they always do everything in their power to make Intel/nVidia look bad.

Lets not pretend Kyle hasn't been nailed to the cross for being called out as biased towards AMD in the past and not long before that they were called AMD fan boys for participating in the AMD30 event.

Seems to eb and flow over the years.

The one you linked to should be an excellent choice (Corsair PSUs are usually quality Seasonic PSUs relabeled).

PSU market is weird. Most don't manufacturer their own models, will often use different OEM brands based on the series, can then use a different model based on the wattage and will depend on the year. You really have to make sure you know what you're getting or just default to a brand like Seasonic.

Corsair sources their inventory from a lot of OEM manufacturers which range from junk to fantastic but I don't think they have any based on Seasonic models. Not that I recall anyway.

This particular model is built by Great Wall. If that name sounds familiar it's the same PSU manufacturer you'll find with those junker Walmart gaming PCs. It's still a fantastic PSU but goes to show how you can't even trust a manufacturer on top of everything else when it comes to the PSU market.

750w is a little excessive though especially for a 2070. Could save a couple bucks and get a Seasonic FOCUS 650 Gold.

What I'm hearing is to sell off my G-Sync monitor for a premium before normal folk find out.

I think where AMD possibly could score a major win with Navi is have the high end card be priced at the same range as the 2060.

That's more or less what the rumor mill has been implying for some time now. The last claim was that they were going to release a card which rivaled the GTX 2070 for $250 which is consistent with what we were told about a year ago by claiming GTX 1080 performance for roughly the same cost.

Bear in mind that AMD doesn't have an answer to DLSS so there's a chunk of performance on the table unaccounted for but we all know how developers feel about implementing new tech, the use of 1440p+ and whether or not retailers actually sell for MSRP.

GGG really knocked it out of the park with this league where D3 goes from being a faint memory to completely forgotten. Several end game goals keeps the grind fresh, engaging and feels meaningful along with really impressive supporter packs.

Because many kids don't play on PC and don't even know warframe exists. Just like fortnite. Many kids now playing don't even have a PC.

Just kids?
