IMO 3dfx is what drove those other companies to try and compete, and pushed d3d forward. W/o 3dfx and glide, I think software rendering would have stuck around for a lot longer...


I don't think nin is wrong. 3D cards before 3dfx, and most of the competition in the early years, was really lackluster. And there's no doubting that 3dfx was in it to make games better, selling an add-on board that did nothing else. Nvidia, Matrox, PowerVR and (most importantly) Microsoft would have been happy plodding along slowly for a few more years, maybe a lot of years.

I didn't even have a 3dfx card until the Banshee, but I don't doubt 3dfx and GLQuake gave 3D gaming a big push. You have 3dfx and market fragmentation on one hand, and on the other you're counting on Microsoft and their evergreen commitment to games. Without someone out there making them look bad, Microsoft generally gravitates towards ventures like GfWL, the Microsoft Store and the Microsoft Solitaire Collection. I don't bag on Microsoft nearly as much as most of the people here, but with the best will in the world it's hard to say that their motivation has generally been to benefit consumers by making something good. The Riva 128 was right about when Microsoft was in the thick of marketing using false comparisons and outright bullshit to knock down OpenGL. If there's any rationalization, I think that's where it is.
A buddy of mine would have given his left nut for one of these

You don't have to wonder what is going on here, there is no great mystery. You can actually read the actual log file that Geforce Experience sends to nVidia.

GPU’s specs, vendor, clock speeds
monitor specs and resolution
settings for specific games
list of games and applications installed
PC specs, RAM, CPU, motherboard, and BIOS version

Zero personally identifiable information.

You guys have lost your right to wear tinfoil hats, you've wasted them on too many stupid things like this.
I recommend Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty.
But then again i prefer tweaking cfg's, ini's and ingame graphics options manually.

Okay, what I don't see are comparisons to other similar high stress jobs or the general population. I would have guessed 1 in 8 was about what it was for everyone...
And that's why pilots should be screened for depression, but thankfully there are loopholes in the system big enough to fly a passenger jet through. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germanwings_Flight_9525

The last time I tried to do anything with windows store it wanted me to convert my local account into a MS account (i.e. when you login to your computer you're also logging in to Microsoft), and then after a mandatory install of one-drive it started randomly backing shit up to TEH CLOUD. I have a free copy of the new Gears of War game out there that I will never play because I don't want to go through all that shit again.
Stay far away from the ms store, the few game exclusives you will miss out on are not worth the hassle. As you have found out.

There's a difference between the President's policies creating and ending jobs, and reckless tweeting doing it. Maybe not to the person losing their job, but to the other hundreds of millions of people living here. One is unavoidable, the other is tacky and makes the entire country look like a joke.
After 2 terms of a decent president our country is definitely looking like a sad joke.

Fake News From the Weather Channel, even! Funny, but not surprising

A fake news site (Breitbart) calling a legit news source "fake". That's rich. Call me when Breitbart has actual climate scientists working for them and can present some factual studies.

I guess the Iraq war was full of factual information and there were WMD's right? You realize that the entire article is written based on 3rd party information, with no confirmation. But let's play the "if it is illegitimate." Was it okay for the US to do the same thing in soviet satellite states?

Yeah, actually it was considering the various intel agencies banded together to take the unusual step of taking out a full page ad in the NYT stating that Bushco was cheery picking facts to support their claims in order to start a war. It's not like the US or the Rooskies haven't been doing this for decades now. What do you think all the wars and wars by proxy are? I have zero doubt at all they were involved. It's only a question of to what degree and how. It's in their best interest to see a Trump presidency so why wouldn't they get involved?
Drumpf has dropped his daily intelligence briefings an cutter has increased his. God save us all.
