  1. Sadly not here in Sweden. It's around $1420 here.
  2. My current monitor is a Philips BDM4065UC that I've had since 2015, I love it but I want VRR (and maybe HDR). I bought an Asus TUF Gaming VG35VQ on Black Friday but I'm returning it since as soon as I unpacked I knew that Ultrawide ain't for me. At least not in that size and resolution. So what I'm looking for is a monitor that's at least 40", 3840x2160 with VRR (VESA Adaptive Sync or G-Sync), 75Hz or better is preferred but not a must and HDR is a bonus. My budget is around $1000
  3. It's VA panels. No one makes TN panels in these size (32" and larger). Philips also use VA panels in 99% of their screens.
  4. Announced at Gamescom 2019 Philips showed their new series Momentum. Philips Momentum is 3 new monitors in 27", 32" and 55" with 120 Hz and HDR. 27" Specs (€399/$449) - 278M1R 32" Specs (€499/$549) - 328M1R 55" Specs (€1300/$1449) - 55M1RY Source: KitGuru It looks like a good set of monitors, but I think the jump from 32" to 55" is a bit much, I wanted to see a model in between at around 40-43". I think the 32" model can be big seller if reviews are good.
  5. It was time to upgrade my home theater sound. From built in TV speakers to an LG SK9Y Atmos soundbar.
  6. MSI RTX 2070 Super Ventus. Pictured with my old MSI 1070 Aero OC.
  7. Source: https://wccftech.com/exclusive-nvidias-super-gpus-unleashing-monsters/ Looks like Nvidia is gonna give us some real beasts this summer. Will AMD be able to come back and compete in the real high-end market now?
  8. 2015 called and wanted their specs back. Seriously are Google smoking glue or snorting frogs or something.. My OP3 from 2016 has similiar specs (albeit "only" a 820) but more ram and cost me less than half on release.
  9. The TV can't runt Kodi, nor play 4K HEVC HDR10 files. However, I installed LibreElec on my NUC6CAYH agian and updated to Kodi 18 Alpha and behold, it plays my high bitrate files (50-60Mbps+, 4K, HDR) perfectly.
  10. So it's time for me to buy a HTPC/Mediaplayer for my Samsung Q6F 65" 4K TV. What I want it to be able to do: Play 4K, 10 Bit, HDR10 HEVC files in high bitrate (50Mbps+) Preferably run Kodi (Or other slick/good GUI) Cost no more than $200 No need for apps like Netflix, YouTube etc because I already got that in the TV itself. Have ETH, Only Wifi is a no-go. I bought the Mi Box but I returned it because it was crap, it lagged like hell and the Wifi was very unstable. I still got my old i7 2600K with 16GB RAM and a 120GB SSD so I've thought about getting a GTX 1050Ti for it. It also got a Asus Xonar DGX soundcard and I got a 5.1 system (Some doable Logitech).
  11. Ryan Shrout from PC Perspective has said that Intel will release new descrete graphics cars in 2020 after he got information from Intel CEO Brian Krzanich during a meeting for analysts. Source: https://videocardz.com/76527/intel-to-officially-enter-discrete-graphics-cards-market-in-2020 It's going to be really interesting to so how Intel will fair in this market. We actually need at least a third maker (maybe a fourth) when it comes to cards for average joe.
  12. Seems like Intel is really going all in in their investment into GPU's. It's going to be really interesting to see what they come up with. Source: https://wccftech.com/chris-hook-joins-intel/
  13. Bought a new TV today. Samsung Q6F QLED 65".
