I executed my plan in 2007... cord cut.

Every year I say I am going to do this...and every year Comcast gives me another "one year bundle" that somehow manages to be only slightly more expensive than getting my content through entirely Internet means. I like the Comcast DVR and On-Demand features/systems so the minimal expense seems very much worth it. More importantly, my wife demands that whatever we do it is really simple to use. Remote control simple. One of these years Comcast will make an offer that is too high and my wife will be willing to deal with added complexity to save the money....but as long as that bundle basically caters to folks who prioritize convenience nearly as highly as the content itself, I am not sure it's going to happen in this household.

Yet another reason to never get married...

ps4 pro - please stop that 4k capable nonsense, with the hardware it got its just a 1080p console full stop. Pr people are delusional.

Nonsense, I decided to test this lately using a GTX 1060 which is around the power offered by the PS4 pro for 4k. My findings have been pretty interesting.

Witcher 3, 4k DSR all settings on Ultra except foliage distance ( high ), shadows ( high ), grass distance ( high ) and gimpworks ( off ). Postprocessing all off except light shafts, SSAO, Blur, Chromatics. FPS cap at 30 adaptive sync @ half refresh rate ( 60hz/2 ).

Results? Mostly rock solid 30fps across the board, very playable, very few noticeable tearing = few drops below 30. That's without intrinsic commands, that's without async, without Vulkan or DX12, without any targeted console optimizations and direct to metal coding.

So, will they have games which were running @ 1080p/30fps on the PS4 running @ 4k/30fps on the PS4 pro? The answer is an easy yes. Will the games running @ 60 fps in 1080p run @ 60 fps in 4k? Again, yes.

At this point, if the Xbone Scorpio is indeed 50% faster than the PS4 pro, could they with a few tweaks get the games which were running @ 30 fps upscaled to 1080p on the original Xbone to run @ 4k native, or the very least, 4k upscaled from say 3325x1871 ( which is about 3 times as many pixels as 1080p instead of 4x for 4k ) @ 60fps? Highly probable.

You see the problem with PC mindset right now is that most have lost the age old art of tweaking settings minimizing eye candy loss and maximizing perf, like they must absolutely run at 60fps or more with everything maxed.

I've been tweaking settings for 20 years now, ever since the first 3Dfx card hit the market. I've got it down to a damn art, I ain't shy about fiddling around with ini files, mods, whatever. And if I can make Witcher 3 run 30fps@4k on a GTX1060 without all the advantages listed above of console optimizations, without access to what the developers have access to tweak their settings ( sometimes even dynamically, dynamic res amongst others, I'm looking at you with envy, get your ass over to the PC ) to hit a particular performance while minimizing eye candy loss. Why wouldn't they be able to?

I don't think this is delusion kid. 20 years of experience and a bit of messing around tweaking Witcher 3 with, relatively speaking, very limited means attests to it.

The question isn't IF its going to happen, but HOW its going to happen.

I can almost feel the spittle and chunks of Doritos hitting the screen as you spouted that self-important, ego-stroking diatribe. Ever thought about shaving your neck and hitting the gym once in a while? It could do your misplaced anger and less-than-optimal health some good, not to mention give you a little perspective on your priorities in life.

Re: Project Ara

I totally saw that coming. There's no way that would have ever worked. Insurmountable technical issues to deal with. Limited design capability due to the modules having to fit within an established standard for each type of module, etc. Dumb fucking idea, especially considering most people just buy a whole new phone after a couple of years, or less.

If we can take a $40,000 car for a test drive, there's no reason not to do so on a $70 game.

Uh, I can think of one reason: IT'S NOT $40,000!

Pirate does not equate to a lost sale in most cases - unless the game is shit in which case it deserves to be a lost sale. If pirating were impossible for some reason people would simply forgo said game or wait until it hits X price. Actual lost sales due to people pirating a game, playing it, enjoying it, and never buying it is absolutely minimal. The laws favour software developers far too much anyway, they have zero reason to piss and moan about anything.

Wow! I'm sure glad we have you to set the industry straight. I mean, who the fuck do those devs think they are? Writing software they hope sucks just to rip people off? How dare them! I deserve free shit off their months and years of hard work, god dammit! Seriously, just who the fuck do they think they are? It's crazy that they would want to release a shit product just to troll me. And anyway, it's impossible that someone else could like a game that I don't like, so why the fuck shouldn't I deserve free shit since I don't like it in the first place? They just got laid off because the studio wasn't making enough money. What the fuck do I care if they can feed their family or not? They shouldn't piss and moan. Glad I got my free game though.

Or maybe you're really mad at the publishers pushing unfinished products and your anger is extremely misdirected. Most devs don't wish to make a garbage product. That's their livelihood. It's clueless publishers that ruin games.

But yeah, devs have the easiest job in the world! Make a shitty game under extraordinarily stressful conditions, rip people off, get fired, have fun searching months for a new job, rinse, repeat. No reason at all for them to complain. As long as I get my free shit in my slobbering, angsty, self-entitled, ignorant perspective, then all is right with the world.

Apparently you can't even do turn-based PokeMon battles in that game with other people, you know - one of the main points of the Nintendo games besides 'catchin' 'em all.
Apparently, that's a feature that has yet to be added, but is in the works, along with trading.

But I dunno. Zero interest to me.

VaranDragon wrote on Aug 2, 2016, 12:11:
Actually no, you are wrong. These are intended as top of the line Gaming cards. Nvidia already has professional graphics workstation cards, they are called Quadro. Actually the Titans are cheap compared to the top of the line Quadro cards.

That, and ever since Maxwel Titan X, they haven't been given FP64 acceleration, unlike the prior Titans. So, really, they're not that great at compute tasks, so they're just rich gamer cards now.

I was considering this card before Pascal was released, but seeing its performance (and price) has me backing off a bit. I'd like to see someone overclock it to proper speeds and benchmark that. I'm kind of doubting a 1080 Ti will exist at this point.

The last Windows 10 user on my network finally gave up last week and reinstalled Windows 8.

Over a dozen computers on the network and not a single Win10 POS left. No more will they DOSS the network every time a new patch comes out. When window update couldn't connect to a server it started requesting connections as fast as it could without waiting for a response. End result: active connection overload, no one could access the internet. Good riddance Microsoft. I no longer have to config custom QOS rules to keep you from DOSSing my network.

It's "DDOS"...

Well, I'm sure there's an app to disable their disabling of things.

I remember when I didn't need 3rd party apps to make my OS usable...

I remember when PC software wasn't referred to by the stupidly retarded dumbed down term "app" and only nerds used PCs. Those were the days.

We were forced into Windows 10 laptops at work because the Win 7 licenses weren't being renewed. I fucking hate 10. It's been nothing but problems for a lot of people. I disabled Cortana on mine, and I lost the ability to search from the start menu. WTF? Why the fuck is it tied into that? Now instead of just hitting windows key and starting to type "printers" or something, I have to click the control panel link and find it from there. It's an extra step but worth it to not have that stupid shit bugging me constantly.

B5 was easily one of, if not the best, sci-fi shows ever made. Certainly it is one of my favorite shows of all time. No other show has the story arc or character complexity of Babylon 5. Such an amazing experience, but you have to get into it from start to finish, and that's the problem I think a lot of people have with it. The first season has to explain a lot so it takes some time to get going. But once it does, oh boy does it ever!

Garibaldi was one of my favorite characters on the show, and seemed like a pretty cool dude overall as well. Sad to see so many from the show go.

Not long ago, I watched this 20th anniversary reunion video. Pretty entertaining and insightful.

There is a more recent one from 2014 that I haven't watched yet:

Why do the women have to be unrealistically fine as fuck though? Why can't they at least depict them like real females that live on a farm? None of them bitches are of good breeding, otherwise, they wouldn't be living on a farm. But, hey, who cares about unrealistic expectations right? >_< Sure, princess! You can be anything you want!

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?!
