    I had a dream last night that a Micro Center had randomly opened next to us, and I'd picked up two refurbished RX 580s for $90 each. I knew it was just a dream when I opened the boxes and they were ASUS Turbos...with backplates.

    so.. in jayztwocents' video about RTX on/off comparison.. the RTX off is probably the poorest implementation of reflections i've ever seen in a game..
     
    conspiracy theory: the games with RTX have notably poor "legacy reflections" to make RTX seem better.
    for example: this is anno 1404: venice, one of ubishit's lower budget titles from quite a few years back, settings cranked to max, easily playable on most semi-recent setups:

     
    and as for the "things out of frame" argument.. here's a reflection of a building just out of frame, at the top of the window:

    This is relevant. This is how 99% of my discussions with people go:
    Me: It's a square hole, the round peg is the wrong shape.
    Them: Oh, then put the triangle in.
    Me: That's also the wrong shape.
    Them: No, I'm sure it's a triangle.
    Me: Then fit it in yourself.
    Them: I don't need to. I know I'm right. Theoretically it should fit. So it will.
    Me: You need a square peg.
    Them: No, you go put the triangle peg in.
    Me: *Goes to get square peg, gets the job done*
    Them: See I told you this square peg was needed for the job.
     
    I literally have had these conversations with bosses etc. I just don't get peoples comprehensive ability. Like, I can show them things, put it in their hands and they go "wow, how did you do that" and I'm like... I get my left hand, and right hand, and press them together and the book cover closes. "Wow, how did you know how to do that" style inability to navigate life and the world.
     
    Oh, but those people 100% have a million friends, no arguments and never any trouble in life. I wish I had social skills instead of the ability not to fall down the stairs walking over my own feed and being able to navigate reality.

    i have this cheapo pair of logitech speakers:

    they're powered off of usb, plug into 3.5mm, they peak at about 0.6 watts drawn from USB, are pretty much the cheapest speakers you can get outside of chinese garbage, feel like quite a slice of the budget went into build quality...
     
    and they sound better than just about any device i have with built in speakers..
     
    HOW CAN INTEGRATED SPEAKERS BE THIS HARD?
