The administrators that say Windows 10 updates are useless are stupid and just lazy. They just do not want to update all the computers that are responsible for. It is also quite dangerous. A very good friend works for a hospital that did not bother to update windows and got hit with a ransomware attack that used a vulnerability that was patched by Microsoft. Needless to say several of the high-level execs were fired along with the computer administrator.

It is getting to the point, that unless you have a fiber optic internet line you are going to be taking a day or more to download a game anymore and the disk drive is not much help as you will have many disks to load. People don't realize how much space 4k textures take and 8k is just a joke.

I really have to wonder about these tech magazines that constant spout unconfirmed nonsense. Like in the one talking about Gigabyte cards coming out, they consistently refer to the 3070 being faster than the 2080ti and I after looking at the 3080 test results that compared it to the 2080ti I have great doubts that it is true.
Personally I see the 3070 somewhere between a 2080 super and the 2080ti at best. Nothing worse than constantly spouting marketing nonsense.

I just saw someone doing a review of the new Nvidia 3080 and they actually got this game to run at 25-30 fps on ultra with that card. Good reason to avoid this game.

All the new Nvidia 30xx series will be in short supply till next year because Nvidia does not have that many to release. Microcenter got 100 for all their stores. That works out to 4 per store with no information on when they are getting more of them. If you really have to have one I suggest you look on Ebay and open your wallet.

The vast majority of humans won't be able to tell the difference between 4k and 8k. Another in a long line of technical gimmicks.

A friend of mine at Microcenter told me they don't expect to have many 30xx cards to sell, their distributor already told them it will be a very limited release until at least next year.
So if you really want a 30xx card, Ebay is your friend and open the wallet.

Programming language history was interesting although I would like to know who in the world coded anything in ADA? I find that statistic a bit suspicious as I never ever saw a want ad asking for the language or even knew anyone who used it. I don't even know any universities that taught ADA. My number one worst language is Java.

As to the Mets, I can still hear my grandfather cheering for them. It is a shame that the current ownership has depleted the farm system so bad. Hopefully, the new owner will address that.

I still think ray tracing is more a gimmick than anything else. Ok, if you have a GPU that can run it, but the visual difference is minor at best. Certainly, the only 20xx card that can run it well is the 2080ti. As to the 30xx cards, we will have to wait and see. I certainly would not use ray tracing as a determining factor when buying a new GPU.

I did get a real laugh over the addition of ray tracing to Minecraft though.

Believe it or not, it is not extremely hard to write good anti-cheat software and AI is even getting better at it than we are. The problem is good anticheat software puts a huge load on the server if it is run in realtime as putting it in the client is an open invitation to the cheaters. So many developers either run a very limited detection program on the server or run it in batch mode at low server usage times . I remember reading an article about a developer included in their client a method of detecting if a player was using an aimbot, Within a day or two the aimbot writers had patches out to circumvent the client code. It is an unending battle.

But it is good to see someone who really cares get a job like that.

getting really tired about all this Nvidia nonsense. Except for the 5% who need to have the best whether they need it or not, no one else needs these 30xx cards. Most people are still playing games at 1080p and going to 4k is still only for the very rich as the monitors are still way beyond what the average user can afford. Not to mention that many of these prebuilt computers come with a power supply just big enough for the components it has, good luck trying to put one of these power hungry 30xx cards in one. Probably why AMD is not in any hurry for big Navi.

yep the 30xx cards are faster, but the ridiculous numbers that are posted in this article are absurd. The cards are NOT that fast. Wait until you see some in game testing.

Kind of funny everyone jumping on the Nvidia bandwagon and taking Nvidia's word on the performance. People who think they can go to their favorite website or store to get one of these cards will be very disappointed at least for the remainder of this year as the best place to buy one of these cards will probably be Ebay at a much higher price. It will be interesting to see if AMD's cards are more available and close to Nvidia's performance claims.

Always fun reading comments from people pretending they understand the legal shit involved and speaking in absolutes.

A simple business course in contract law is all that is needed here. If there was ever a black and white case this is one of them. Contract law can get really hairy, but not in this case as the contract was deliberately broken.

I still do not see why people are so enamored with 4k gaming. I sold my expensive 4k monitor and bought two 2k monitors and I see little difference in game resolution, plus I have two larger 32" 144 mhz monitors now verses the 27" 4k monitor.

8K is there for cards that can do 4K well with DLSS upscaling, no?
No one turns on DLSS unless you want your FPS to do in the dumps besides DLSS still makes your picture look horrible. 99% of the viewing public won't be able to discern the difference between 4k and 8k.

As usual, Nvidia making performance claims that are ludicrous. A friend has the new 3080 to test, his results are not even close to what Nvidia is claiming. The 3080 is about the same performance as the 2080 ti in games that he has tested so far. Don't expect a lot of units to be available of the 3080 or 3090 for this year as the GDDR6X memory is in short supply since it just literally came out.

I disagree that it is like the SIMS, more like Civ 6 on diplomatic steroids. Should be called backstabbers anonymous as it seems that is everyone's goal. It will take some time to get into as it has significant changes from CKII.

The people flocking to New World just amaze me. A friend is in the Beta and he laughs when I ask him about it. Needless to say his opinion it will need at least another year for the developers to get the game to a playable state. Certainly not there now.
