    Since you have an RTX card you can buy one of the nvidia promo keys off eBay for ~$20 too.

    BFV getting DLSS support and further RT improvements this week

    It was down around like 40% around the holidays. I’m am really enjoying the game, and I haven’t been this engaged with a BF game since BF3. I have around 50 hours and love how it feels, and their patches have been refining things pretty consistently. Seems like we are getting one every 2-3 weeks.
  4. Patch note: From what I can tell from a few minutes of googling this will be the first DLSS game on the market, and I am looking forward to what the performance diffence is like. The tech sounds pretty cool, but we don’t have any hard numbers as of yet (correct me if im wrong). Hopefully it isn’t half baked like the first RT patch was in BFV, but we shall see. Various bug fixed, balance improvements, and a new 4-player co-op mode will also be inside the patch. It is due sometime this week, but dice has confirmed via Twitter that it won’t be Tuesday like the PC Gamer article states. Patch Notes PC Gamer

    9980XE motherboard recommendations

    More software info: modeling is in revit, but being able to grow into more is good. Rendering is lumion/vray, and audio/video work. From what I know a gaming card works better for his case. I personally work in revit for work and have played around with lumion on my own, but it seams like the TR might be better.

    I think he will want more cores, but I’ll get a more detailed list of what software he uses.

    9980XE motherboard recommendations

    I know he uses a program called lumion that does need a beefy gaming GPU and lots of VRAM, but haven’t asked him what else he is rendering with. I think the modeling is in revit and max. This guy doesn’t really care about price and wants the best.

    Have only talked to him once so far, but I’m he told me sound recording/mixing, architectural modeling/rendering, and I’m sure you can throw a few Adobe CC programs in there. Threadripper did come to mind, but don’t know enough as to which would be best. He told me he is looking at the best he can buy now and not have to upgrade for awhile. EDIT: and I think the XE still beats TR in per core IPC, but haven’t looked at the number recently.

    Wouldn’t have thought to use EVGA. I did Asus in my last 3, and MSI/Asus for a few builds for friends. I’ll keep that one on the list.

    What do you mean?
  11. Hey! Building a workstation for a friend and was blindsided by the CPU he wanted to get. And I haven’t done any builds before with a CPU that can pull the kind of power that monster can. Any recommendations for something reliable and with the propper VRM setup/cooling? He doesn’t really have much of a budget, but something in the $300-400 USD range seams reasonable. He wants to use his old rack case, but don’t know the make (up to E-ATX supported). Rest of the build is up in the air, but looking at a 2080ti and ~1000w power supply.
  12. These leaks seem reasonable, but i think the battery is a little big for apple. But putting that big of a battery on the max would let them crank up the CPU a lot higher.
  13. Lol, what the hell does this guy do all day. I’m expecting native 4K @60fps with slightly better graphics then what can be done now for most games. The ones that really push it will probably upscale from 1440. The X can already run some impressive looking games at native 4K/30, and double that 2 years from now is reasonable.

    Samsung Galaxy S10 2019 Launch event & product details leak

    I don't mind notches, and don't really notice it half the time. But I can tell you know that the punch holes on the screen would drive me insane. It isn't centered (maybe), and looks like a big zit. This may change if I was using it myself, but idk.
