    Echodamus got a reaction from pinksnowbirdie in Which 1080 to get, and when to buy?   
    It wouldn't be, I have 12 inches of clearance. Thanks for the tip!

    Echodamus got a reaction from Heizu in Getting to know the LTT team a little better   
    If this isn't the right place to discuss this then I'll remove the post, but I had a thought the other day while watching a video where Linus referenced one of his staff...
     
    I am horrible with names and faces, so I was thinking it would be cool if Linus and the crew did a short "bio" video or something. I'm not referencing a "Draw my life" video, just a video where they chat about who they are, what they like, and really anything that they are comfortable with, as well as what the do in Linus media group, etc. 
     
    I think one 'bio' video a week, until they cover everything, would be cool. I know it isn't strictly tech related, but that way when Linus references someone doing something I have a better idea of who he is talking about. Hell, maybe even take a half hour segment of the wan show just to do the same think, I don't know, I am sure LMG could come up with a more refined way of doing it. I enjoy seeing the personality that comes through in channel super fun videos, and I'd like to get a bit more of that personality.
     
    Again, I don't know if this is the right place to discuss this, or if the idea has been brought up and shot down before, but I figure I might as well mention it.

    Echodamus got a reaction from Skybane in Project CARS devs address AMD performance issues, AMD drivers to blame entirely, PhysX runs on CPU only, no GPU involvement whatsoever.   
    But isn't that AMDs problem... as in shouldn't they (as in AMD) offer a more compelling feature so they win the business of consumers? I understand why monopolies are bad (m'kay) shouldn't their competitors being doing more to get equal?

    Honestly I don't get why people get so butthurt about this. If it bothers you that you can't get certain features or settings then just buy NVidia the next time you're due for an upgrade. What is so hard about that? Also, not everything is open source, and just because people want it to be doesn't mean that it should be/will be. Is it so bad that a company wants compensation for their hard work?

    Echodamus reacted to LinusTech in AMD did not send review samples of upcoming series to hardware reviewers (like LTT) in time for the 16th reveal   
    Just gonna weigh in on a couple things here.
    1. I do not have any new cards from AMD. I don't have tracking numbers and I haven't received a product briefing, reviewers guide, or even an official release date. I am way beyond giving a crap about unreleased products (they're nice but I've determined that I can easily stay relevant without any release day reviews anymore) so I don't really run around trying to dig these details up in the industry and read the same site you guys do. I know basically nothing about 3xx.
    2. There's nothing wrong with letting fans have a sneak peek of something ahead of time. I've heard that Intel seeds processors to game streamers, and Nvidia gave away a whackton of G-SYNC modules.
    3. With that said I agree with Ryan's point that something should be independently evaluated prior to release (based on my retailer experience if it's in stores now and a reviewer hasn't had a card for a few days the review won't be ready in time) and from my past experience when a product is objectively really good the brand is beating down the doors of the most trusted journalists to prove how much ass they just kicked.
    This behavior looks more like "we can't win with the usual formula here, so let's throw something else at the wall and see if it sticks"
    But just like the rest of you I'm speculating.
    Ryan may also know more than he says (also speculation) and I'm intentionally waiting until after I post this to ask him so that I'm not revealing something I shouldn't.
    The industry is very small and nothing is a secret.

    Um, it doesn't nag? It just notifies you that windows 10 is released and you can upgrade for free...
    Not everyone is up to date on the most current news so this will help get people to upgrade to the new and better OS
     
    Its funny how people make such a huge deal about one notification about an important update.
