Really? I thought it looked bland, washed out, blurry and the once glorious illumination of the gun's projectile was far too toned down to barely noticeable.

It would need some serious tweaking...

JW3, for the win!

I'll probably watch Star Trek Discovery but won't talk positively about it, even if it's good. After all the shit les moonves has caused and litterally trying to kill all the original shows/timelines just for merchandising. If your a fan of the original shows including Next Generation, consider watching this...

Star Trek Discovery and the Return of Picard: The Controversies Behind The Scenes


Oh boy they are shooting themselves in the foot so hard if what they want is to "merge the timelines". I have never seen such a colossal mismanagement and franchise self-destruction of what should have been a trivial thing.

They had hundreds of novels with GREAT original and canon Star Trek content to choose from, among them what would've been fan favorites would probably be Riker in the captain's chair on the Titan.

Heck, they probably could've even done a few movies with Q by drawing from the novels stories and it would've been way better than the paramount crap.

Either that or a completely new crew set post-nemesis without that absurd timeline merging stuff. It would've been so easy, just forget Kelvin ever existed, leave that to paramount for their movies and focus on unadulterated Prime post Nemesis.

Heck, even Star Trek Online has a better story post-Nemesis than anything that is on-screen so far, with Sela still trying to plot despite Romulus being gone.

There's so much incredibly great content out there in novel/fanfic/otherwise form that is completely untapped and would've DELIGHTED old fans and new younger audiences as well.

This whole thing is a Star Trek facepalm meme moment if there ever was one at all that corporate licensing drama bullshit. Their internecine capitalist fighting over Star Trek will kill the franchise once and for all and they don't even seem conscious of that fact.

Oh the irony... Gene Roddenberry must be facepalming hard right now.

And I bet Stewart will regret his participation in this mess...

Edit: The Picard comeback just reeks of desperation, it's clearly just a trojan horse's pathetic attempt at getting the old fans back in line and too bad, but a lot of the Star Trek crowd is just too smart to fall for this cheap trick.

I just hope you can disable the spy mechanics somehow... or a mod comes out to disable it. I always put them out of the equation in previous TW games by modding the game ( nerfing them to uselessness ), they're just annoying, deter from the main game mechanics and I never use them.

Also, that campaign map camera is atrocious, way too low and angled, I want a top down view, old TW style.

6b vram vs 8 vram is the question...
I'd get 8gb if you don't upgrade frequently. But it also depends on the games you like to play and your expectations.
.

Yeah it's the only thing I was wish washy on, watched some vids of 6 vs 8 side by side, it's marginal in fps even when a game uses over 6. I ordered a 2060, will do a before aft with a 1070 and then move one of them to system 2, which is using a 760.

The 2060's 6GBs chokes badly on BFV's ultra textures, going from high to ultra has a WORSE perf impact than enabling DXR ( and that was @ 1080p, LOL ).

With the next-gen consoles just around the corner that will have way more than 6GB of GPU usable RAM, the 2060's 6GB is a JOKE in 2019.

Only get a 2060 if you don't plan on keeping it more than a year or 2.

I won't argue hard against that line of thinking, but some come backs could be then use high textures vs ultra. Are some ultra's really meant for 4k? I am running 1080p, next couple years main will move to 1440p. Just because a system uses more vram that a card has doesn't clearly mean stuttering. If/when consoles have greater than this and they start using that as the new default, I have no problem getting a new card, in fact I want a good reason and solid value to get a new card. I'm pretty confident we are many years away before a 2060 sucks balls, it's pretty amazing how older cards at least hang in there and are playable. System 2 and 4 have a 660 and 760 with i5's and shit they still perform.

Here's the 10x0 series running BFV and the vram used, they have it set 1080P with Ultra Textures and it is well under 6 gVram.

Digital Foundry > Some random guy on youtube, everytime.

Just watch Digital Foundry's video linked above, you'll see. 6GB is already a BIG problem introducing stuttering and with a major impact on performance. A taste of things to come very soon in other titles.

Overpriced GPUs *cough* 350-450$ "midrange 2060" *cough* ( not to mention its 6GB max is already obsolete, can't max out BFV textures without having a WORSE impact on FPS than DXR... PLUS next-gen consoles coming in the next year or 2 with much more GPU usable RAM... ), still overpriced system RAM. No... Is it a good time for CPU + mobo upgrade? Intel supply issues, overpriced intel CPUs, Ryzen 3000 just around the corner... No... Maybe in 6 months when Navi and Ryzen 3000 launches, RAM prices have had some time to drop some more and Intel has got it's supplies issues solved. Until then? HELL NO!

21. 10 ways 5G will change daily life Jan 14, 2019, 23:18 Simon Says
 
Plastic smartphones? GOOD. That glass/metal nonsense was used as an excuse to make opening/repairing phones unnecessarily harder, and it was also used as an excuse to ditch user replaceable batteries.

Now they have no excuses anymore, curious to see how it'll play out.

Edit: No it wasn't about water/dust IP certification, Galaxy S5 was IP certified ( source: https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s5-6033.php ), yet was made from plastic and had a user-replaceable battery. Don't be fooled by the disinformation.

I don't remember which review outlet that's from, but they found out that going to ultra textures had more of a performance impact than enabling DXR in 1080p in BFV...

6GB is utterly impotent already to tackle the highest textures at the most basic resolution, much less the 1440p it's touted to be able to play at @ 60fps.

The 2060's 6GB max RAM is a JOKE in 2019. The 350-400$ "midrange" claim is also completely absurd ( midrange is where 50% of the people buy GPUs pricewise, that's 250$ and down, 350+$ is enthusiast pricing ).

I advise everyone to keep as far away from this plague of a GPU as possible. Especially with the next-gen consoles just around the corner that are going to sport way more than 6GB of GPU usable RAM.

Freedom of speech: Having the right to say that you think it's a hoax.

NOT freedom of speech: Having an ongoing and systematic slandering/disinformation campaign about it to make $ while the families of the victims suffer the consequences.

Electric cars will never "take over", and the battery is only part of the problem. We will need to figure out how to create an electric motor WITHOUT using Rare Earth elements. Nobody is talking about the hard truth, and when you consider that the planet doesn't contain even a FRACTION of the materials needed to make electric cars for even HALF of the driver population as it is today, to say nothing about how many people will be driving in the next 20 years. Good luck with that, morons. This push to move to electric vehicles will force us back into the stone age. No more materials to create new electronics for ANYTHING. No phones, no computers, no circuits, no NOTHING.

And we can't continue to burn fossil fuels to get around either because we'll also go back to the stone age, but this one will not only be without electronics, it'll be without food, shelter and clothes ( and maybe even without oxygen )...

Benchmarks are out for that 2060, and it's basically got 1070ti/1080 performance, and has launched at $200/$100 USD LESS.

Whoever was whining, quit it!

Still priced as a x70, not a x60. Performance improvement less than the 1060 that easily beat the 980 and which was still 100$ cheaper at msrp.

Strange how "whining" means having a working memory for some people.

Also, check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2fPWQQSdu4

Same is true with the 2060^^

None of those are double blind scientific tests, they're opinion pieces... Rolleyes

The only provided source in this discussion to a semblance of a scientific test ( single blind ) proves that gamers can't tell the difference if they don't know which is what. And THAT is what really counts, the end user experience. NOT opinion.

You have strong opinions CJ, but it's really all you have...
