So basically we now know for a fact that the RX 480 does not meet PCI specifications... which begs the question how the fuck the card got certified by PCI-SIG, a question those review sites all happily forget, AMD pushed it out, sure, but PCI-SIG certified it to meet PCI specs. Without that, the card would not have shipped.

Btw, one of the other interesting tidbits that came to light was that there were at lest 2 slightly different PCB's of the same card... not as a jab at AMD.. just as a curious fact. ;p

Erm...no.

Particularly since I am.. you know, European, and nowhere in Europe (UK/NL aside) do we play Cricket...

There has been some talk to maybe start some team in Germany (What with all the refugees who know what it is and so on..) but I don't think that ever ended up happening. You also have to face the reality that here in Germany, people just flat out do not understand Cricket. Which isn't at all the same like American Football, which we enjoy watching too.. if you cut the advertising breaks out anyway.

2. Action trip down memory lane Jul 5, 2016, 15:41 eRe4s3r
 
Just browsing the site now makes me wonder wtf the point of it was. The entire site design screams "someone nuke me from orbit" and the top babes seem a relic of an ancient, more sexist time... that, and the site looks broken even before shutting down.. maybe thanks to the weirdly incoherent 2 side-bar design

So goodbye Action trip.. a site that every time I visited it reminded me as to why I love bluesnews more than any other gaming news site

I think you're confusing blizz with ubisoft. Blizz has great anti cheat, verifies client actions server-side, and is aggressive with bans. From Ars:

And you couldn't accuse Blizzard of not being thorough; one user reported that he couldn't play Overwatch after his ban despite reformatting his entire PC, changing his hard drive ID, his MAC address, the BiosDate in registry, or even after he bought a new VPN.

They're doing this over the "look the other way, sell another license" ploy of other titles.

They can't do a damn thing against human-interaction faking bots like the above mentioned one hence they have to sue, same (design) problem with HOTS

Aka, broken by design.

A game that can be played by a bot better than by a human and which does not allow detection of said bot in any way is pretty much cheaters haven. And the only way that can be is if everything happens on the client end.

All the bot needs to do is sniff the netcode of the game and blizzard can not detect this if it's properly done via system driver, since the client knows everything the server knows so does the bot....

Anyway, this is what happens with "shooter is always right" design philosophy.

That's what you get for designing a MP "competitive" game with a client side net protocol and zero decent anti cheat.

Real currencies are stable until psychopathic central bankers come in with their always clever lies and deceptions to scam the populace with a collectivized currency. You imply it would be chaos, the opposite is true. Right now our economic system is chaos and evil.

When the fed is ended in the right way, there will be a transition period where the parasitic and cancerous aspect to our economy would die. That would be healthy and necessary. Suddenly we would have a lot of people ready to take productive jobs.


Yeah, so.. like in Venezuela? See.. the problem is what you define as a productive job isn't necessarily matching the list of "vital services a country needs to not go to shit"

Especially when you are totally dependent on food imports. (in case of Venezuela, also oil exports)

So Polaris 10 is 480, Polaris 11 is .. let's ignore that it even exists.

What is AMD's plan to compete against Nvidia here? And how are any of these cards VR ready or is that not even a thing anymore for AMD?

I'm pretty sure everyone's expecting AMD's Vega 10 to compete with Nvidia's GP104 (1070/1080). Nvidia's releasing higher end parts first and AMD's releasing lower end parts fist.

Which is why the 1060 (Nvidia GP106) is coming out after Polaris/480. Hopefully we at least get some news on Vega 10 soon. Hopefully using HBM2 on it doesn't cause any supply delays, I'm quite curious to see how it turns out (and hopefully doesn't have a reference board partially designed by marketing lol).



So Vega is an entirely new DIE and CHIP ? If so that would mean by the time it's out, Nvidia is gonna push a TI version of GP104 (it has plenty of headroom) to compete against that with barely any extra development no?

Just seems like AMD is basically doomed to lose what little market share it has left if they don't release some positive press soon. At the latest by xmas tons of people are gonna plan to upgrade.
Meh, the vast majority of graphic cards are sold in the midrange level. If they can compete in that market, they'll be fine.

Midrange is very crowded though, and the 480 isn't particularly shining. Maybe the picture will change with better board designs coming from 3rd parties.

Ah.. AMD's plan is called VEGA.. and it's supposed to ship in.. 2017 or something. Bit odd that a card that's supposed to ship in less than 6 months doesn't have any info on it.

Bizarre, but at least you got it figured out. Also check here if you have any other issues. http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Nox


Yep thanks ,) And no issues, runs smooth a few "hitches" aside... forgot how quirky this game was.. ran the gauntlet of fire and still remembered all the secrets.. heh

I think Grim Dawn already covered all these basses and did them way better. It was certainly my D3.

Grim Dawn is great, there's not much to fault with it which is extremely rare in games these days.


Of course there is much to fault in Grim Dark..

I never said it was perfect, I've even ripped it a new one on Blue's myself. Though what it want's to do it does well, for the most part, which is be an ARPG. I haven't played it for a while now and when I did I cheated to avoid what most annoyed me (though to be fair there all ARPGs have that same annoyance). So perhaps I've cooled a bit since butting my head against the things that bugged me with my first playthrough/character.

Some things you bemoan, like combat being somewhat boring, I would have agreed with after my first playthrough though I then tried different characters/styles and found something I enjoyed much more. Perhaps you never found that for yourself, perhaps you're to tied up on there being a certain amount of "fluff" or some visual spark/eye candy, while such fluff is nice it isn't going to make or break gameplay, though perhaps it could help hide or distract from lesser gameplay. Personally I'm not going to take fluff or eyecandy into consideration when looking at gameplay, for what I consider very good and obvious reasons.

eRe4s3r wrote on Jul 2, 2016, 09:48:
D1 without mods is nearly an insult nowadays, and as someone else already said, D1 HD mod makes it a vastly better game, thanks to not sticking to stupid as hell design imperatives.

A bit of a tangent but I'm not sure what you're trying to say here, in the sense that it's painfully obvious and expected that there is and should be much in Diablo 1 that is utterly crap compared to things today. If that wasn't the case something would be very wrong seeing as it came out in 1996/7 and was essentially the genesis of ARPG.

Still I think you're very mistaken about something. Taking that mod I mentioned as an example. You seem to imply the design of things in original Diablo 1 was or is considered by some to be great/the best/better, than newer things, hence you feel the need to refute that saying it isn't.

The thing is I don't think anyone disagrees with you, I don't see anyone that would prefer to not have weapon switching, zooming, battering with icons and tooltips for items rather than text, etc etc etc. I've never seen anyone say Diablo is great at such things (compared to more modern things), as it painfully isn't, and again shouldn't be.

It's like you're confusing or mixing up different design aspects that people praise/moan about, GUI versus atmosphere/aesthetic, function versus style. I don't think anyone wants any game to go back to using the now very much "stupid as hell design" of Diablo 1 when it comes to function, usability and such. I've never seen anyone even try to argue for that. I'm pretty certain when people praise the original Diablo design over something newer, or for example say it's better than Diablo 3, that they're talking about the aesthetics, the style, the atmosphere and so on. In that regard Diablo 1/2 outclasses Diablo 3 the way Dark Souls does something like WoW or Plants VS Zombies or Farmville.

The only reason I can see for you saying that bit is to counter people going on about preferring Diablo 1/2 over 3, though I don't see the point of or a reason to use technical design to argue against them. For the simple reason that virtually everyone (probably even 100%) agrees with you, they're comparing design style and atmosphere, not inventory management, GUI, or even things like animation quality..



I liked going on that tangential rant since I am waiting for Enderal (Skyrim TC from SureAI) to release the launcher ;p And aside, I felt like this is a topic worth expanding. And It's hard to expand when people don't say WHY they think what they say. In fact it is why I didn't understand what they meant and drew conclusions for myself, like you do, I had hoped more people would respond and detail why they think Grim Dawn is in any way better than D3, reminding you that most who played GD probably haven't seen the end-game because the end-game is a very boring grind and, for all intents, not even existing, since you can not max out 2 Masteries which leaves you with a sort of "half-assed" merged class or a TOTALLY OP focused class..

But to respond to your first quoted bit, I meant, and didn't say so it was easy to miss, comparing from D1 to D2 design imperatives to PoE and Grim Dawn. Since after all, originally my reply was re: Grim dawn, which is intensely played the past weeks with nearly 5 characters to explore all the skill trees and lootz (I enjoyed no combination of any masteries and I noticed how the loot system works which .. well made me go ~.~

I've had over 400 hours in D2 due to lan playing, we played sorcerer/necro mix, it was a blast but.. even then we noticed that itemization (aka, what dropped) didn't really change how we played the classes. Since as choices "stuck" (which I consider a bad thing) an item that was really neat but changed skills we didn't have was totally worthless.... and considering the legendary drop rates in D2... well yeah.

Anyhow, I have to agree with you that I merged and blurred 2 argumentative lines and assumed something that I probably should not have. Mea culpa and all that.
