  1. I have not yet, I'd probably go with something a bit beefier if the HDMI connection permits. Like a 3200x1800 upscaled to 4k @~100hz, or maybe something slightly below that. 1080P just doesn't have the oomph it did 10 years ago. I've been spoiled by Ultrawide, and now my spoils continue into 4k.
  2. While you're doing that, side note. Don't games look balls-to-the-wall omegasauce on these beasts?
  3. What is the reason your are pushing 12bit encoded color information if the television can only display 10bits of range (1 billion colors)? Is it because Nvidia's panel only has 12bit as an option? Also, I am sure you mean YCbCr as that is a digital signal HDMI cables can carry, YUV is analog format and an HDMI cannot carry it. I am currently stuck on 4:2:2 on my HDMI connection (YCbCr) if I want the full 60hz at 4k. Lowering to 24hz for a movie allows me to select 4:4:4. I just want to confirm this is truly a max until HDMI 2.1 outputs are available on prosumer graphics cards.
  4. Dear Readers, I am looking for an FPS counter which I can put on (slave) monitor 2 in order to give me the readings for monitor 1. Is this available in FPSMon? I certainly don't see it being obvious in the settings. Thank you, Aman
  5. Dear Readers, I recently installed an LG OLED C9 television and hooked it up via HDMI to my 2080TI. The television is rated at being able to display 4k at 4:4:4 chroma subsampling (uncompressed) @ 60hz. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get this to work and believe it is a limitation of HDMI 2.0. I have only been able to select 4:2:2 @ 60hz (interestingly the output color format is locked to "limited" as well, with no option for "full"). Anyone else with a C9 been able to get different results? The HDR content looks great, but I do notice compression noise/grain in some films which I have that are over 60GB of information and believe it to be a fault of chroma subsampling. All my drivers (on TV and computer) are up to date. Thanks, Aman
  6. If they had no branding at all, I can confidently identify this as a Razer product.
  7. Dear LTT Forum, I have a fairly non-unique issue. My C drive is full because all games want to save to C instead of to their respective installation drive. I'm upgrading to an M.2 1TB drive which will be my new C drive. What I want to do is to begin the update from my normal C drive, but write everything to the new M.2 drive so at the end of the Windows 10 1903 May 2019 update I have one completely unaltered original C drive and one freshly updated new C drive (on the M.2) with all of my applications and programs still intact. I don't trust reinstallation software and was wondering if there was a way to both upgrade and preserve original. I can always do back up, etc, but why spend the time if I already have 2 drives to work with, right? Thoughts? -Aman
  8. A couple of things. I am getting this monitor, but I'm on a custom-looped 2080 TI so I run on heavy overclocks. I can drive this monitor on many of the games I play which is what's important for me. I also plan on upgrading my graphics cards as new ones come out, so the monitor will only continue to pay dividends for me. Finally, once you exceed 1440P, anti-aliasing no longer has a good cost per perceived benefit. You are taxing your GFX card, getting lower frame rates, and can't see aliasing anyway on higher DPI displays. This monitor has a DPI of 109, you will not be able to see aliasing even with AA turned off.
  9. Are you overclocking your 2080? Because I am running mine at 2 GHz clock and 7GHz memory at 60 degrees centigrade. I get 90-100 frames in Witcher 3 on all max with a 3440x1440 monitor. I am confident I can run around 80 frames at the newer 3840x1600 resolution, as it would only be 24% more pixels to draw. It would run better than 4k currently does on a 2080 TI.
  10. That sucks. I don't have any experience with WD drives but only hear bad things. Hopefully they don't white label their technology under HGST. I have some 12 year old Hitachi drives still kicking. Either way, looks like there's a market pinch and I'll have to just wait for a deal. I'm not spending $0.4 per gig, that's asinine.
  11. I am looking for tech news on the status of the hard drive market. Prices look outlandish to me and I see good drives I am looking for unavailable. I have no clue why Linus continues to say how strong and helpful these forums are.
  12. Ugh, guys. I'm not here to argue. I am here for technews. And the H in HGST stands for Hitachi. If WD acquired them, I don't care.
  13. I think those are the same thing. Either way. I am here looking for hard drive tech news, anything crazy happen to cause a shortage?
