Darks wrote on Nov 23, 2020, 13:11:Congrats on the 3080, they're still crazy hard to find. What CPU/RAM do you have? I just wanted to mention that with my 3080 FE I'm getting 77 fps in HZD (14020 score) with all settings maxed (screenshot - colors may look off, because it was taken with HDR on). I only mention it because I would expect that you should be getting higher than that, and you might want to look into it.
Just got my EVGA RTX 3080 Ultra FTW3. Did a performance test in the game with their built in test.
This is at 4K 3840 x 2160 Rez everything at Ultra settings.
2080 Super gave me a score of 8240 43 FPS Average.
3080 gave me a score of 10778 59 Average.

AFAIK, the main goal with Version 3.0 is to make it a global setting at the driver level, which would mean game-ready drivers to enable it on a title-by-title basis aren't required, and you'd be able to use it for anything, even older and/or obscure releases.
Dev wrote on Nov 21, 2020, 09:35:As had already been pointed out, these cards are running exactly as they're supposed to. There's no danger of it dying under stock operation. Yes they run hotter than other generations, but they're designed that way. There's no reason to avoid them because of this.Quinn wrote on Nov 21, 2020, 03:46:EVGA has pretty good warrantiesOpticNerve wrote on Nov 21, 2020, 03:28:
(this sucker runs HOT)
Wait, you think that's a good thing? I hate to burst bubbles...
A friend of mine who works in the GPU retail industry tells me to avoid the series like the plague.
Consider underclocking the card just a little bit before it goes kaput.
Rhett wrote on Nov 19, 2020, 07:07:Same. It was decidedly a step down from Doom 2016, imo. They tried to tack on too many systems, and doubled-down on the requirement to use the chainsaw and finishing kill moves that were the main complaint (aside from multiplayer) with the first game.
Kinda surprised Doom is up there. I mean it was a solid, polished experience.. but I don't personally think GOTY.
Acleacius wrote on Nov 19, 2020, 07:12:This exactly. I have a feeling that the response from Epic/Sweeney will finally show their true colors. Or they will oddly remain silent, which would be very out of character for Sweeney, which in itself would be a sort of confirmation.
Nor would I give him credit for Apple's bottom tier adjustment. In all honesty the wealthier (corps in this case) should be paying more than independents. It was the right thing to do, which proves Apple is not Goliath. BUT most importantly that's not what sweeney is fighting for. He was fighting for his billion dollar corporation. While gaslighting himself as a victim/hero, using populism as a hall of smoke and mirrors. If your going to give sweeney credit for the adjustment, you will also have to give Apple the credit for completely outsmarting him again. Because Apple made it impossible for him to win now, and he got nothing he wanted.

A little weird they will only release it on HBO Max for one month, but that'll just motivate some people without the service to get a month's worth, I guess.
Burrito of Peace wrote on Nov 18, 2020, 23:32:Intel is certainly deep in a sunk cost fallacy with their 10nm node. They should have abandoned it long ago, and they'd already be on TSMC's 7nm with AMD by now, and on their way to 5nm. And like you said, they could perhaps even set up some agreement to lease their fabs to TSMC in exchange for a massive manufacturing discount or something.
I firmly believe Intel is in a death spiral and I do not believe they can pull out of it as their corporation is currently structured and operated. Let's see if they learned from IBM's mistake and pull out in time. I wouldn't bet on it, however.
jacobvandy wrote on Nov 18, 2020, 23:24:Yeah, the RT effects in Watch Dogs: Legion are definitely noticeable. And hasn't anyone watched any of the Cyberpunk 2077 videos (at higher resolution/bitrate, not the 2 bytes per second 1080p Youtube compression)? They look breathtaking (*giggles*) to me, and are greatly enhanced by RT.
Fully ray-traced reflections in a shiny, near-future, very rainy city is the main reason I've played as much of the new Watch Dogs as I have.

Getting effing stoked for my new PC...if the goddamned cpus and gpus ever show up.
Jonjonz wrote on Nov 18, 2020, 06:39:Something should probably be done about socially irresponsible media, and I don't currently have an answer as to what that could/should be, but dropping Section 230 definitely isn't it. That would dramatically alter a large part of the internet as we know it, and not for the better. It's basically the online version of the US First Amendment (an over-simplification). Without it, many sites, especially smaller ones like Blues, would most likely have to prevent any kind of user forum or comments for fear of violating the Communications Decency Act and getting into a lot of expensive trouble. But that would also include user generated/uploaded media as well (images/video/etc).
230 needs to go to prevent socially irresponsible media (Farcebook, Twatter, etc.) from promoting the kind of false information that got this clown elected in the first place.

I was thinking about buying the MCC, since I've never played halo and figured this is a good time to start, but then I came across a mention it's included with the xbox game pass PC, which I bought like 3 years of following helpful info from blues people here. Sure enough it is!
