Hope it's better than DOS. I dunno why buy DOS was pretty meh for me. Tried to get through it several times and just got bored and quit at some point along the way.

If I recall correctly you were bitching about how hard it and Pillars of Eternity were. The general forum response was "stop sucking" with which I wholeheartedly agree. Rather than trying to change your play style at all, you consistently try to play every RPG in the same way which is why you keep having a poor experience.

So yeah stop sucking.

New GPU 4X more powerful than original XB1, according to specs. Maybe not top of the line, but a huge leap in 4 years.

I don't consider it "new", its just an upspec'd revision of the same APU arch. The old one struggled to do 720p with a decent framerate in many games so 4x as powerful doesn't really impress me.

I don't think people should buy an Xbox One X with VR in mind.

The games I play most in no way benefit from the current crop of $600-$800 monitors.

G-Sync especially is ridiculously overpriced (IMHO) although I wouldn't trade my el cheapo AOC 24" (got it for $293 on sale) for anything. FreeSync is more affordable but not as good (again, IMHO), although FreeSync 2 is looking much better (but also adds more cost). I'll agree that the prices on them are pretty much a non-starter for most people including myself outside of smaller screens (the Dell 27" is particularly popular).

The funny thing is that the GSync module is supposedly only like $80-90 at this point, the manufacturers are just going nuts with markup. Also many of the GSync monitors have other premium features which bloats up the price. Vendors are charging a premium for GSync monitors because its currently superior to Freesync and the AMD card situation is such a mess.

Isn't it more like a 1070?

No. Ignoring the silly TERAFLOPS stuff, it's basically a 480/580/1060 equivalent with 12GB of memory for some reason. Just an upgraded APU, the same one they have in the PS4/XBox Whatever.

Expect the new Xbox to basically output the equivalent of Medium graphical settings at 4k/30fps in AAA games. Heavily optimized games or less resource intensive stuff will do more.

IMO the only impressive part of it is the price considering its SFF and has a Bluray drive, assuming anyone still actually uses discs. A similar spec PC would be like a grand. Of course I wouldn't buy something that modest in power in the first place but that's neither here nor there.

Might also explain why they put such a powerful GPU in the new XBox.

Powerful? Looking at the specs, I would put it near a GeForce 1060.

I'm not expecting 4k miracles from the new Xbox. It's going to be a lot of checkerboard upscaling and tradeoffs again. We'll be lucky to get 4k/30fps with high visual toggles. The odd well optimized game might shoot for more or dial down other stuff.

Anyways back to VR, I think this is great. VR needed price drops to let it attain some critical mass. This will let people get a feel for things without committing half a pay check.

That really sucks. Despite their Java client being a POS, Crashplan had versioning, NAS, external and other awesome backup features for a reasonable price. There is literally nothing else that compares or comes close on features/customization.

Going with the small business pricing would blow for me, we have 4-5 machines that would need to be backed up at $10/seat.

I really dislike Backblazes all or nothing approach. You can only enter a limited number of exclusions, totally wastes bandwidth and their 30 day file retention is lame.

News Comments > AMD Radeon RX Vegas Launch
36. Re: AMD Radeon RX Vegas Launch Aug 16, 2017, 10:52 Verno
 
The funny thing is that Nvidia rightfully gets called out for their bad behavior but people are always quiet when its AMD pulling this shit because "we need a competitor for Nvidia". Guess what, we still need a competitor for Nvidia because it sure as hell isn't AMD.

Vega is really disappointing in pretty much every aspect and the worst part is that even their fanboys won't be able to obtain one now.

That and their new drivers to optimize for Nicehash is just some scumbag shit from AMD. The whole launch in general was a fucking fiasco, drip drab marketing, innuendo, bullshit benchmarks and now this crap.

Have fun selling your blowdryer cards to miners I guess AMD.

Huge fucking disappointment. We're now looking at 2019 for AMD to produce something that competes with 2016 Nvidia offerings.

Power hungry, loud, mediocre. Vega 56 is the only decent card there and an overclocked 1070 will still compete on par with that and use less power. What a shitty launch, RTG needs to muzzle Raja Koduri after his constant broken promises. The pricing isn't even very good thanks to their use of HBM2.

You want all of the amenities of modern society without paying for any of them and then act like you don't need them. No one is asking you to stick around, feel free to fuck off to some other area without all of these things.

Until then you're just a giant hypocrite and ignorant to boot. Put your money where your mouth is.

No? I thought not.

Disappointing prices given that they're competing with year old Nvidia tech. Also they really need to work on power draw, many people have downsized PSUs.

I am calling for a retirement of the "humorous" allusions to domestic violence that these stories inspire.

Noted and rejected.

We need more stick and less carrot around here for chuckleheads like you.

I thought the rest of The Night Of never really lived up to it's pilot episode. I really enjoyed season two of True Detective but I agree with its critics that the writing was all over the damned place. Vaughn was really miscast and didn't have the presence to carry his role, he made a good effort though. Rachel McAdams character was poorly served in the last few episodes too.

What did he expect? This is IP theft of an active game. Blizzard is also working on getting the identities of the people behind Elysium and shutting that down next.

Hopefully the Halo series isn't as forgettable as Terra Nova. The source material isn't exactly inspiring a lot of confidence in me and Microsoft loves to fuck up their Hollywood deals so I would be shocked if this ever made it past pre-production.

Shape of Water looks interesting, I'll watch anything with Michael Shannon in it. Take Shelter with him and Chastain was really well done. I just hope Del Toro doesn't fuck this up like Crimson Peak.

The Sheeran thing was so pointless and distracting. I watch fantasy to get an escape from reality, not see pointless cameos that break suspension of disbelief. At least in the past when they've cast musical artists there's been some attempt to costume them nearly to the point that I can barely notice. The rumor is that he was the actresses favorite artist or something so I guess he totally deserves to be there instead of an actual actor. Just get her something signed or introduce them, don't inflict it on everyone else.

Game of Thrones is so consistently high quality that something like this is pretty glaring which is why people went nuts online about it. Oh well, its all going to be over soon enough. I'm pretty happy with the direction the show has taken overall.
