  1. Source: Nintendo Life To me, this sounds like a very good thing, and might also be why Ubisoft has been on the uptick for the last little while. Many consumers (myself included) have slowly had our perception change, seeing Ubisoft go from a great company to something of an EA mirror, to now being more in line with its former glory. If this has anything to do with it, then I can't wait to see what the future holds. Thoughts?
  2. Source: arsTECHNICA Honestly, how many more flaws/bugs are we going to find in modern CPUs? Between this, Spectre and Meltdown, I'm beginning to think it's only a matter of time before the entire modern CPU architecture as a whole is filled with holes from left to right. I know that's an exaggeration, but it seems this year has not been too kind to Intel or AMD, and Intel is just getting hit again. Thoughts?
  3. Upon asking around, I'm getting conflicting results. Some users are reporting the button is fine, others are reporting it's missing. All of my personal testing has shown it to be the latter. I wonder if it's only slowly being rolled out?
  4. Edit 2: It looks like this has been confirmed, if PetaPixel is to be trusted. It appears to be in conjunction with a partnership between Google and Getty Images. Credits to @VegetableStu for the link. Original Post: I wanted to post this in Tech News, but as of now I cannot find any online source. As of today, you can no longer view image sources through Google Images. Before, when viewing an image, you could click "View Image" and be taken to the page where the image is, typically resulting in a URL ending in a .jpg or .png file extension. This is no longer possible, as the only options are now to visit the website hosting the image, or to save it directly to your Google Account, which has proven difficult for copyrighted material. Additionally, right-clicking and opening the image in a new tab will ONLY open the thumbnail; you can no longer open HD images through Google directly. You are required to go to the page host. All images also now have a "Image may contain copyright" tag underneath them, next to where image resolution is now displayed. This appears on all content. This appears to be true on multiple browsers, both with and without Google accounts logged in. Edit: Upon further investigation, this does not seem to affect everybody. I've been receiving conflicting reports, where some users are missing the option, and others have it just fine. This has held true across both Chrome and Firefox Quantum. It appears this has to do with Google's Save feature.
  5. Are you making sure you're plugging your video cables into the new GPU instead of the integrated graphics?
  6. Have you ensured that your M.2 slot is properly enabled in your BIOS? Sometimes they can be disabled to save PCI lanes.
  7. I don't want to insult you or make you feel dumb, but have you tried re-seating the card or monitoring your temperatures?
  8. Some will recommend you install the K-Lite Codec Pack. DO NOT DO THIS. This has been known to cause issues with the Adobe Suite, such as crashes, slowdowns and other issues. The only solution is to reinstall Windows. Simply transcode them with Handrbake as you mentioned, and transcode them back as necessary.
  9. https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Gold-Plated-DisplayPort/dp/B004C9P9TM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1515792544&sr=8-2&keywords=displayport+to+hdmi https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-DisplayPort-HDMI-Cable-Feet/dp/B015OW3M1W/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1515792544&sr=8-3&keywords=displayport+to+hdmi Both of these cables: "Can only convert signal from DisplayPort to HDTV. This is not a bi-directional adapter" I assume this means the DisplayPort signal from the GPU, but of course with English like this, you can't be positive.
  10. Even on Monoprice's website, they specify that the cables are not bi-directional and CANNOT be just "switched around." Is this a marketing gimmick? Because I'd rather not spend $20 on cables only for them to not work and be told "oh lol i misread that" when I ask.
  11. I have two monitors that I wish to use, but unfortunately they are HDMI only. My GPU (the EVGA GTX 970 SSC) only has one HDMI port available, and that's being used by my Oculus Rift. My GPU has three full-sized DisplayPort ports on it, so I'd prefer to use them if possible. I have one HDMI to DVI cable, and I can use my DVI port for that, but I will still need one DisplayPort to HDMI (or HDMI to DisplayPort?) cable in order to use both panels. However, upon searching, I am only finding cables that will go from DisplayPort on the display, to HDMI on the GPU, and they are not bi-directional. Any DisplayPort out to HDMI in cables I have found, are either $149+ adapters, or $4 cables from Amazon with 1-2 stars. For reference, these are the panels I will be using: https://www.amazon.com/Designo-MX279H-1920x1080-Frameless-Monitor/dp/B00B17C5KO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1515791754&sr=8-1&keywords=mx279
  12. Source: The Verge It looks like Tabs are going to be integrated into "every Windows 10 app," according to The Verge. While the above video only demonstrates its use in Microsoft Office, Microsoft is also bringing the feature to Explorer. It looks to be an integration of Edge into the current app, which for better or worse will allow users to access the web-- or even local storage-- more quickly than they otherwise might have. What concerns me however, is how they're implementing it. From the above demonstration, it looks to be more or less an instance of Edge baked into the app. You more than likely won't be able to change it for a different browser, and I wonder how this will look in the Explorer frame, for one? Anyways, what do you guys think?
  13. You will need to plug in more than one 3.5mm cable, yes. Look up the original packaging, and try to replace the cables it originally came with. 3.5mm cables are really cheap. The only issue might be that your Z906 speakers have soldered cables, don't they?
  14. How exactly do you have the speakers plugged in if you're only using one of the 3.5mm plugs? That doesn't make any sense. You realize your motherboard has separate audio channels, right?
