    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Ithanul in PC or Console. Planning on improving my gaming experience, need advices.   
    That would actually make a decent LTT video. 55 inch TCL Roku TV (~$560) + $1400 PC vs XBox One X + 55 inch OLED. 
     
    Does the increased framerates of the PC make up for the decreased visual quality of the LED TV?

    There is a good argument that for $2k the best experience is an X-Box One X with a $1500 LG B series 55 Inch OLED. In terms of overall picture quality.

    The rise of Dubstep coincides with a reduction in young men having sex.

    I mean hes not wrong. AMD's 7nm product has about 12nm RTX2080 performance at a higher power draw. The Nvidia's Turing architecture is more power efficient at 12nm than AMD at 7nm.

    This argument only works when you compare Nvidia's gaming cards vs AMDs, not when you compare their actual compute product, and even then only in some compute workloads and synthetics. 
     
    Like AMD is not great at Geekbench,

     
    And power consumption does matter in the gaming space as well, mobile computing a thing. Not wanting a 400W space heater for a graphics card is a thing. Paying your electric bill and caring about climate change is a thing.

    i think that was mostly due to them expecting the ngg to be working well, which would have put vega on top, but it did not.
    about xbox one X what does it have that you are considering special?, its the perfect config in terms of compute and graphics performance but it cant be scaled up without more shader engines or faster blocks
    specially with the rtx cards having tensor cores it will depend on what kind of compute we are talking about, vega 20 will be miles faster in fp64, fp32 it should be competitive, fp16 the tensor cores should mean nvidia is ahead, the challenge of comparing compute performance is that amd is still suffering quite a bit from lack of optimization, support for Rocm is growing very well but its still missing from some of the most used benches

    As many, many, many, many people have pointed out the bottlenecks involved in the architecture design are the main reason it's so poor at power per frame. Based off some claims about the exact % of dead time on bits of silicon i'd guess a more rational design could do the R7 performance at about 300W draw. I suspect small Navi will be 200w or less.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Aldoarip in Metro: Exodus sold "2.5x better" in the same period on the Epic Store versus Last Light on Steam   
    I think this shows that when the platform is just a free piece of software that anyone can download and use, it does not matter.
     
    Downloading it through Steam, downloading it through GoG, downloading it through Origin, downloading it through UPlay, or Downloading it through Epic Game Store, it doesn't matter. The experience is functionally the same, you make an account, you buy the game, you download the game, you play the game.

    James is the obvious answer. He's discount Luke, and is by far the most charismatic of all the "new" (Post Brandon/Ed/Luke) hires.

    I got a S10 (regular) March 9th and I really love the Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor!
     
    I used to think the Ultrasonic FP sensor was VERY slow - like you said in the video. 
    About 5 days ago, I tried to remove the screen transistion effect (biometrics preferences) and registrer my finger again. It works 90% of the time and I litterally can just tap the display and it unlocks, when it works. :)
    The FP sensor is actually - in my experience - way better than my old phone - which was a Galaxy S7 Edge and my iPad Pro 9.7'' (touch id gen 1).
    I have the Exynos version of the S10 and love it.

    I would contribute at least 5$. I love scrapyard wars.

    Would be even better to let them go to another country and have a rule that forbids shipping at all. Would be hilarous to see them struggling to get parts by talking with natives who aren't fluent in english.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Aldoarip in X-Com successor Phoenix Point pulls out of GOG/Steam due to Epic payday   
    This Steam/Epic stuff is the dumbest gamer feud I have seen in a long time. They are both free, this is not worth caring about. Like I played Metro Exodus last week, had to get Epic for that, took a whole 5 minutes to download and make an account. There is no meaningful difference. 
     
     This is the dumbest of dumb gamer arguments. It literally costs you nothing to have both!
