the new "3080" RTX cards will be out at same time as the game ... with supposed 30% increased RTX processing power ... Best to wait & buy 1 of those .
Still not dropping 400+ bucks for Ray Tracing.
I see the RTX 2060 is down to $340. Not cheap, but not as bad as $400.

Same here in Colorado.
Cali folks come here, and try to turn this into the place they just left...ahh wtf morons. On one hand, my home value has skyrocketed +100k in 3 years. On the other hand, Cali people.
Local people getting mad that people like them are moving here and pricing them out of a house!
I read something a bit ago on SF (and Vegas..though I cannot locate that story atm) and how the service industry workers are fleeing because the pay cannot keep up with the cost of living even when housing and bills are split amongst a household. However to keep up with the costs, the pay scale would go way above a skilled workers pay scale, and ahh.. you serve food for a living, so that's not happening. The market will correct itself, or SF/Seattle etc will turn into those M.E cities I visited that have imported 3rd world workers :/
Same stuff people saidin OR and ID, there are a lot of people and they will end up somewhere of their choice, we don't get to pick our neighbors, unless you are loaded.
If you can get the same pay for the same job but outside of CA, great take it. But CA also have a minimum wage for programmers now over 80k, money talks to.

Autopilot has trouble discerning the horizon from other white objects sometimes, it's a limitation of the camera tech they're using. There's pros and cons to camera and lidar and I'm not sure either one is ever going to be fully suitable for autonomous driving without awareness networking between cars. I still can't believe Musk said robotaxi this year, utter nonsense. Anyone who has used Autosteer knows its nowhere near ready for that.
The name is really misleading and should've been changed a long time ago. It's a fantastic driver aid but you should have a hand on the wheel and be paying attention at all times. I use it constantly on the freeway and have only had to override it a few times, its by far the best driving suite on the market and makes commutes so much more relaxing.
But I do credit Tesla for dragging the car industry forward, the Model 3 is by far the best car I've ever owned.

A society dominated by a victim mentality cannot be sustained. While its citizens may feel comforted by laws that protect their feelings and by the belief that they bear no responsibility for any of their circumstances, all core motivations necessary for achieving actual success are significantly eroded. Competition to become successful is mutated into a battle of determining who was victimized the most and eventually, the remaining hard working individuals contributing to society give up and do the same.
This just seems weird to me. ALL LIVES MATTER!
Stop dividing people through race. Give that 1 million dollars to POOR people, not black, not white, not asian, not chinese, not the green martians. Give it to underpriviledged POOR people.

If I was her neighbor I'd take up a collection and build an identical privacy fence 6" inside the property line and paint it a color of my choice.
Seems like what she did lowers property values. I wonder if a liar

These new Intel CPUs, while the power consumption is embarrassing, still easily beats AMD in gaming. I really hope Ryzen 4000 does a little better in this regard, their 3700X is an excellent value I hope the 4700X delivers.
