News Comments > GeForce 10 DPC Latency Issue

Glad to see at least one tech news site (Blue's News) reporting on this DPC Latency problem with the 10 series NVidia drivers.

Shame on other tech sites that have so far failed to even notice the problem after all the reviews and so called testing of the the cards after launch.

NVidia make great cards, drivers are complex, but tech sites and companies need to do better testing.


Yeah. So do manufacturers.

Remember that one thing that happened a long time ago where AMD released a card that violated specs that exist for a reason, and they pretended it was an accident, and then they released a driver to fix it but the cards still demanded way more power than they should have for the amount of performance they gave? And then they were like "we fixed it! Sorry guys. :D" and then we all just point and smile at each other and we just laughed and laughed. Silly little things like this happen.

21:9 is dumb because it's too fucking short.

But... but... it's just as tall as a 16:9 monitor? (relatively)

Thus the ratio 16:9 -- 21:9...

I guess they don't look as "cool" as widescreen, but I do kinda miss the 4:3 days...

Actually, they used "21:9" because it sounds cooler to consumers than "7:3". Bigger numbers == better, right? RIGHT?!

21:9 is dumb because it's too fucking short. Why not just get a huge 4k monitor, like the 48" Samsung JS9000 TV? FAAAAAAAR more immersive, and you don't have to worry about stupid, bullshit aspect ratios and their lack of support.

GTA 5 is actually really fun online these days. Haven't seen a single hacker in weeks. Some guy I was playing with the other day said it had been like that for like two months, and it's so nice and great to be able to actually play the game. Apparently, they've done something that broke all the modder tools, at least for now, and that's a very welcome change. If you've been held off from the game because of the fucking hackers, go ahead and give it another try. I've been able to complete the lowrider missions, and done a few heists. It's a lot of fun now.

Yeah I won't ever buy an OLED monitor until they fix the massive motion blur and burn-in issues. It's not a technology that's ready for consumers. At least not consumers who care about such things as image quality and longevity. After two years, your start bar will be visible at all times. XD

Also, it's too small for a 4k monitor. It should be closer to 40". After using a 48" curved 4k for a couple of months, I can say I would find it extremely difficult to downsize. PPI is about perfect at 40" or so though. Shame OLED sucks. :/

I don't really see any difference, apart from the "FedUp" trucks have the FedEx logo, and the cop cars are blue. Looks the same to me otherwise. Maybe it's the video quality.

Is this the patch which deals with hackers?

Ikr. Day of release, every race will have their par times set by hackers to like 0.2 seconds.

To be fair, in playing the last couple of days, I have not noticed a single hacker. Doesn't necessarily guarantee they're gone for now (until the tools get fixed again), but it's a very welcome change of pace.

GTX 1060 w/ only 3GB of memory would be a huge mistake from the Green team at $250.00 or any price for that matter. Even if it has better performance, memory usage has spiked significantly in the last year. It's not PRESENT proofed, much less future proofed. What's the point of owning a card that can run GTA V at high settings only to have it run out of memory? That game devours video memory and people still play the hell out of it. It would be a debacle.

On the other hand, a GTX 1060 w/ 6GB at $250.00 would be a knock-out blow to AMD.

There's probably room for a 1060ti in the product stack though. We'll see what happens. GPU's have gotten so boring, it's good to have stuff to talk about again.

My 3gb GTX580 plays GTA5 at the higher end of high settings at 2304x1440 really quite well. It does not run out of memory, and it's surprisingly smooth as silk. But yeah, 3gb isn't enough in 2016. If you ask me though, neither the 1070 or 1080 are powerful enough in 2016 either. Nowhere near. Big Pascal should have been released first.

They just want to be able to force you into their iTunes DRM scheme. Only iSheep will fall for this.

I remember when I fried a friend's iPod on accident years ago. The fucking thing had a USB port on it that wasn't actually a USB port. It was the EXACT SAME SHAPE and number of pins, but a couple of them were swapped so that you were forced to use their fucking $90-or-whatever-the-fuck cable. Using a standard USB cable in a fucking port that looks exactly the fuck like a fucking USB cable destroys the device. Brilliant fucking decision to do that shit. I fucking hate Apple. Humanity will rejoice the second they go out of business.

So this game doesn't even have a server browser? I really hate matchmaking style lobbies. DOTA 2 can be extremely annoying like that. I like when I can look at a list of servers near me (sort by ping) and join, and I often can get into games with people I play with regularly because they connect to the same servers. I find that I can have a lot more fun that way, and my enjoyment of the game leads me to want to play it more and get better. TF2 does this correctly. Doesn't sound like I'll be trying Overwatch.

The flourish is one of the best parts of the combat. It's not at all useless. Being in a group of enemies and hitting four at a time feels very cool and satisfying. This isn't until a little later in the game though.

I'm not talking about Whirl under combat skills, which can be pretty useful. I'm talking about the flamboyant telegraphed twirling style of swordsmanship that Geralt uses in the games, which serves no practical purpose other than to look cool.

For example, your basic move forward attack, Geralt has to do a 360 pirouette and bring his sword down in a wide arc. It's a terrible move, has a long wind up time, leaves him open to be counterattacked, and doesn't even cover much distance. At least in Dark Souls if a weapon has a dumb move set, you can just change to something different.

It doesn't really matter when you're fighting against a single target, but when you're fighting a group, mixed with the occasional wonky target switching, the combat system just feels clunky.

It doesn't switch targets unless you TELL it to. I think you're just not understanding the combat mechanics.

Wait, since when was GTA Online ever supported on PC? I haven't hardly been able to use it due to the fucking hackercancer. Fix that shit so I can get my money's worth out of the game, and I'll think about buying your next one.
