Stop with the fucking curved monitors for fuck's sake! It's a dumb gimmick. It introduces distortion, uniformity problems, increases reflections due to the parabolic curve, reduces color accuracy, makes your display useless for graphic design, takes up more space, and costs considerably more.

Why can't we focus on 40"+ displays with these high refresh rates and 4k or greater resolutions? Large displays taking up the majority of your vision are far more immersive than some stupid, flawed gimmick that's full of drawbacks. Just stop it.

100% agree, and even better, 21:9 makes sure you have issues with smaller games for all eternity and can't even watch youtube vids properly fullscreen. I legit do not understand who this screen is even made for.. gamers? Do gamers not watch movies, youtube etc.?

Meh... companies who can handle supply and demand get my purchase, companies who can't handle it don't get my money. I look for purchases based on MY opportunity, and I am perfectly fine waiting for the next GPU and CPU generation.. don't give a fuck about the nvidia fake cards anymore since they won't ever be priced competitively the way it's going now. I will grab my new GPU in a year or 2... doesn't bother me none.

What I will never do is playing a refresh store lottery just to get one of these luxury items, if they are there when I look, neat, if not then the next one will look even shinier...

This is the test of will. Those who are excited AF but don't go for this EA will have passed it. Why ruin the ultimate experience of playing the polished, full game by eating from the pan before the meal is ready? Your hunger will already be sated before it's served. So silly.

Like I said, I will be replaying in single-player & coop, many times over time. EA is only 25 hours, a good taste. So far, not many games released this year, I've been playing FFXIV, would like to give that a breather. Looking forward to see what BG3 has now; looking forward to seeing how the game changes in full release and into future. I don't think it's silly, it's a plan.

It will 100% spoil your experience, take it from someone who was in the ALPHA onwards of D:OS 1 you do NOT want to see behind the veil.... ever

classes are
Cleric, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, Warlock and Wizard

missing are
Druid, Barbarian, Sorcerer, Paladin, Monk

so ~40% of BASE classes (if we go by scope of implementation) ..... figured that was the only relevant info in this news blurb...

Druid is alone easily worth 30%, because of all those unique spells.

The Donald has been infected? Wow. 6 months ago he would have told all of us that this would be fake news because there was no virus. Than it was the Chinese virus. Now it's HIS virus.

* Donald Trump said late Thursday night that he and the first lady would begin a quarantine process after top aide Hope Hicks tested positive for coronavirus.
* "The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!" Trump tweeted after earlier, suggesting that he may quarantine.

That's not the same as saying he is himself infected. Blues News is a bastion of free expression, probably one of the last, but that also puts everyone on notice to be careful about what is posted here. Remember, Google scrubs or buries incorrect information from their engine. Should such a comment like yours come up, their algorithm may ding Blue's search rankings. Let's not contribute to that.

It's an uphill battle for me without Arny playing the Barbarian battle god. But with more budget, maybe we can get more of the dark grim fantasy elements that the base material had

Who would have thought waring a face mask, even cloth mask, would reduce the amounts of sickness you spread and receive.. mind-blowing.. well, unless you had a working mind before... I am not going outside without mask anymore. So far, and for 7 months counting, I have not been sick even the SLIGHTEST.

Why do people keep talking about the 10% increase in gaming performance as a reason against this GPU? This is NOT primarily for gaming. Period. The 24GB VRAM is clearly aimed at productivity and considering it's 45% faster for 20% higher cost than the 2080Ti it's very good for that.

The biggest concern isn't the value, it's the atrocious power consumption from this big of a GPU on this Samsung 8nm process. Power consumption shown below is absolutely insane:

https://static.techspot.com/articles-info/2105/bench/Power.png
That's showing total system power consumption. Digital Jesus has a graph that shows a normally clocked 3090 pulls less than 36O watts by itself when it’s running full tilt boogie. https://youtu.be/Xgs-VbqsuKo?t=690

Because GPU's use power directly from the wall socket? That would be the only situation where that number is relevant.

Us mere mortals have PSU's with less than 100% efficiency on PCI-E power lines.

This entire release schedule by Nvidia is so stupid.... They have almost zero cards for consumers to buy , but they pushed so hard to launch the products out the door , like they are scared of AMD's cards coming out. !?
THey are acting like they needed to be first out the door to keep customers loyal , but are just pissing everyone off and making them wait for AMD anyways because of no availability of the 30xx series...

Nvidia is at the top , why not launch when you actually have inventory to please the masses ?

Maybe there are issues that only crop up 3-5 weeks later.... I mean, wouldn't be the first time

The 3080 launch is about as real as Trumps hair.

Also I guess the news about miners buying them backdoor from the factories were not fake.... given the pictures that are floating around in Chinese a-social media, either miners or scalpers, either ones should burn in some hellfire.

It’s oos now https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08HR55YB5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8
It's funny (in a "I wanna cry" sort of way), minutes after I posted that, Amazon put an ASUS card up. Then about 45-60 minutes or so later, posted an EVGA card. Of course, I missed both. I got all the way to the last checkout step for the EVGA though, before it auto-removed from my cart saying there was no stock.

Not just is it a funny thing in a "I wanna rage" sort of way for me, but on Amazon.de they just unlisted all 3080s and canceled the Zotac pre-order even though it was.. a fucking... pre-order.

I am done with this. Tell me a store where I can pre-order with a queue and send me there

Also a fucking week later and it's still a paper launch

Question about NVMEs. Do they have their own separate bus from SATA drives? I have two SATA SSDs and a SATA 7200. The first one I use for system and system apps. The second is for modern games that are more demanding and want better speed. The 7200 is for media storage and old games. I'll want to keep that setup in my new PC, but throw a NVME into the mix solely for games - and the most demanding ones at that like Cyberpunk, et al. I'm presuming the legacy drives are all chained on the system bus and the NVME has its own? Is that how it'll work?


NVME m2 cards are PCI-E cards (just that your mainboard might have a custom slot assigned for it), and run over that. SATA is own thing, with own controller and driver requirements. Completely different system wise.

Edit: Can't believe the letter Q as start of a post bug has not been fixed ~.~

Ps.: You can mix SATA SSD and NVMe m2 SSD and have zero performance penalty between them.
