Techgage agrees with me:

It could be that AMD and / or NVIDIA will drop new drivers anytime now, that makes all of this performance information irrelevant. While drivers are important, Gearbox also has its part to play in smoothing things out too, as itís not the first time a Borderlands title was released with some fairly poor opening performance. In any case, pick the right DirectX mode for your GPU, and just leave the rest up to the game devs and driver team.

Looks like an upgrade GSYNC/FreeSync is in my future when it comes to new titles like this...

Woof, looks like BL3 is poorly optimized at launch as BL was.

I don't get it. The game runs flawlessly on my rig. GTX 1070 Ti. People have the same complaint about Gears 5. Is it porn? Potatoes? Poor PC health?

What's flawless to you?

According to Techspot (which appears to be reporting the most favorable performance of the three sets of analysis), a 2080ti with 9900K is required to push the game at my monitors max res/hz (1080p120hz) on "Ultra settings".

[edit] Guru shows that there's a small bump in performance by going with High, but clearly Medium offers the best performance. Unfortunately Guru's screenshots for Medium vs. Ultra comparison do not show action packed scenes with all the visual effects, so it's impossible to actual understand what visual quality is being sacrificed for high frame rate fluidity.

I'm apolitical. I find political ideologies to be inherently faulty due to them requiring ideal conditions, which do not exist.

As for rape and evidence: what's your alternative? Listen and believe? Humans lie about anything and everything. People will lie for money, for fame, for attention, for the feeling of power over another, for the feeling of actually doing something in their lives, or even for... nothing. Just, tell a lie, wonder a few moments later why they told that lie. That's humanity.

We have due process for many good reasons, one of which is so people don't have their lives ruined because of mere talk. Social justice goes around due process (and rather has quite some disdain for the concept, along with others). This opens up for cliques and mob mentality to exert control over individuals and groups who can be lied about and painted as "wrong."

Rape cases are difficult, simply due to the nature of the crime. You do what you can, but you don't just go by someone's word, else you get cases like Brian Banks.

On top of that, we lie to ourselves the most. Sometimes in reflex to discomfort or pain, even unconsciously. Bending our memories to conform, manipulating the thoughts we have in this moment to change or maintain some narrative. The story of the individual.

I think there are few, truly evil people. Mostly it's hurt or damaged individuals, doing on to others as other have done on to them.

someone lost a brother, or a friend, or whoever he was to the people in his life. He may or may not have been an abuser, but he was still a person, and shouldn't have felt like this was his only option.

Fact: Weaponized social media is a major problem

100% agree. And whoever can create the biggest/loudest mob wins the arms race. Logic, reason, evidence, facts... those increasingly don't matter, if they ever did.

Some of those who were previously voiceless are falling into the same traps of those they accuse, believing they are righteous and have justified actions against others, but don't realize they are wielding a double-edged sword.

Power, manipulation, control.

It sounds like the X-Files

If there's no sexual tension between protagonists, then it's nothing like X-Files Alien

BBC: The news of his death was confirmed in a statement from Charles Koch, who said that his brother was first diagnosed with prostate cancer 27 years ago and given only a few years to live.

Wow, I wonder how much he spent....

I'm interested to read about user experiences; I found the first VR implementation through Dirt Rally to be the most stomach-churning experience out there for VR.

I'd love to like it. I just can't drive laps around circuits again and again.

Yea I'm with you, also don't get a feeling of speed doing laps on a car when I can race my real car on Autocross cheaply and have an exhilarating time. PCars2 does have some real roads though like California Highway 1 with is a long drive not a circuit.

Thatís fair.

PCars walks an awkward line between arcade and sim. Thereís a big market for simcade racers like Forza and Gran Turismo, and thatís the competition for SMS. Catering to the masses, however, results in disappointing racing fans that are on the extremes.

Iíve become a sim-only racer for about 4 years, because simcades donít have laser scanned road surfaces, sophisticated tire models, and clean online racing.

So is VR anything more than just an overpriced gimmick yet?

The controller technology is the revolutionary component of the Index ecosystem. Just look at YouTube videos for some examples of what gameplay looks like.

I want the Index headset for the higher-refresh rate because that will really make racing simulators a lot smoother. Buuuut, I don't even think a 2080Ti has the power to do +20 cars on track in VR with dynamic weather at +120fps...
