    Nvidia Said We Couldn't Game On This...

    Yeah, I just mean that if Nvidia allowed it on the driver end then the leftover stock of these could be sold that way.

    These cards could easily be repurposed as external Thunderbolt 3 GPUs for laptops. Most laptops that allow external graphics at all already support using them to run the internal display through what I have to assume is a similar method to what you guys are using here since it doesn't use any of the display outputs on the card.

    Handy Tech Under $100 Ep. 14

    I mean this with all the love in the world but if the audio on the mic test for a product you are recommending is that screwed up why is this video "Audio fix coming soon" instead of pulling the video down and reuploading when the audio is fixed?

    Razer Blade would definitely be my preference, sadly I had to self my gaming desktop a couple months ago to get my car fixed so all I have to game on is my work laptop. Which is a Macbook Pro. With Intel graphics. I miss my 290xs guys.

    Vessel. Questions and false promises.

    this is basically how all tech startups work at this point. You get start up capital (money) from VCs (Venture capitalists, aka people with lots of money) and in return you give them a portion of ownership in your company. They're gambling that the company will be successful and they can sell of their stock later for a profit. Most tech companies will operate at a loss for the first year or sometimes even longer* than that if they can keep receiving funding from people who believe the company will someday be successful. For a service like Vessel the ability to show potential investors that you have a user base of both content creators and viewers, even viewers who are not yet paying for the service, is a point of negotiation for get more investment dollars. Rather or not a significant portion of that viewer base will eventually turn in to paying customers is yet to be seen, and only Vessel knows for sure how many paying customers they currently have at all, but it's not at all unusual for them to be operating at a loss right now. *As an example, the last startup I worked for lived off of Venture Capital and the founders own money for close to 3 years before turning their first profitable month. They've still got a ways to go to get the point where you can say it was a net success for the investors, but they're in the black now and revenue, at least when I left, was growing very quickly.

    Intel Mystery Unboxing - Meetup 2015

    maybe that thought process doesn't apply to actual children?

    LG Mystery Unboxing - LMG Meetup 2015

    The 6700k they unboxed in this video isn't the chip they used in their testing, and the video is shot AFTER their skylake video went up originally. I'm guessing the count the original skylake video as the "product launch" and this video as just an extra unboxing video. I think that's a fair assessment as LMG doesn't even do traditional unboxings anymore unless it's a special one off, like either of these or the original Ultrawide heroes unboxing.

    HTC One M9

    The covering on the camera lens is, like the covering on the iphone 6's camera, Sapphire glass. The difference between the two is the sheer size of the piece of glass and the lack of support underneath the HTC lens cover. Sapphire is incredibly good at resisting scratches, but it's hardness also makes it extremely brittle so if you're going to put it on something you need to make sure that it will NEVER bend. (This was probably also a contributing factor in Apple not using a sapphire glass screen on the iphone 6 as was rumored because harharhar bendgate).

    Vortex Pok3r Giveaway sponsored by Massdrop

    My favorite layout is dependent on use case. For work, as a programmer who often has to use numbers for obvious reasons, I need a full layout w/ number pad. For gaming? 60%, get everything out of my way.

    What programminfg language(s) do you know?

    the web stuff, HTML5/CSS/JavaScript Some Ruby, mostly for Rails usage Some Java, mostly for Android programming. A little bit of Swift but I haven't actually built anything with it yet.
  11. I just updated to the beta client and all my games are back. Weird.
  12. I had over 100 games in my library not 2 weeks ago and now I'm down to 84. I've never bought anything grey market, always direct from steam, so that's not the problem. I've been able to find a few of the ones that were missing, and if I go to the games store page it says it's in my library but it doesn't actually show up under the library tab. So far I've found 4 of the missing games, 3 of them where Assassin's Creed games so I originally suspected it was Ubisoft's problem but I was also missing Bulletstorm which is an EA game. Anyone else having this problem? few points of clarity The games are missing from my "Games" list, not my install list. Going to the store for the game shows it as being in my library, and when I click the "Play Now" button it starts showing up in my library again.

    Official Nvidia GTX 970 Discussion Thread

    8350 is 8 cores. The fact that they share some cache does not make them not true cores.

    Official Nvidia GTX 970 Discussion Thread

    Tom's hardware is one of the most credible, reliable, and thorough hardware review sites out there. Wouldn't call them a "random source" at all.
  15. The guy who made the video says it wasn't shot in 60 FPS. You can argue till the cows come home, it doesn't change anything, it's NOT 60 FPS.
