  1. I'd go with the 3700x, especially since he wants to stream as well. The 9700k has only 8 threads, which might effect performance once the new consoles release next year and the 30 extra dollars can go into the GPU cooler instead. The 9900k is quite pricey and I'd rather spend that money on the GPU instead.
  2. Control max settings: RTX OFF RTX ON
  3. I have an HDR monitor and it looks really great, but I don't think it's really worth it unless the screen is OLED/Micro LED, dimming zones are just not good enough. Also HDR on Windows is completely broken and the support is horrid from Windows, games, and Nvidia/AMD, so it's a hassle to set up and use properly. There also issues with HDCP 2.2 and other protections, which make even streaming content or playing a blu-ray on PC annoying. For the price you're much better off buying an OLED TV and a cheaper standard G-sync monitor.
  4. The Chinese market alone will pretty much gurantee adoption in the hundreds of millions and widespread developer support. Samsung or LG need global market support as the Korean domestic market alone is too small to rival Google, but Huawai doesn't, they can dominate without even needing to sell a single phone in North America. You can bet that all the Chinese gaints will heavily support this like Tencent and those companies have their hands in nearly everything.
  5. I'm curious how the performance would be if it was paired with a 2009 GPU like a GTX295/GTX285.
  6. The Elite has a internal USB C port, so you can actually add USB C via cable/case. Also ASUS currently has a 10-35€/$ cashback on their motherboard purchases, so a more expensive ASUS board could actually be cheaper or the same price as the other boards.
  7. The RTX2060 is $399 MSRP, the RTX2070 Super will be $499 MSRP and the 2080 super at $699. https://videocardz.com/81149/nvidia-geforce-rtx-super-series-final-pricing-and-availbility-date-leaked
  8. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider maxed with RTX on: Quantum Break maxed:
  9. Can't you return it? I bought an RTX2070 a week before the teaser and as soon as I saw the video and the rumors pop up I returned it. At least in Europe, we have 14-day return right and Amazon even offers a 30-day return period.
  10. Yep, and during Fermi and early Kepler days, AMD was extremely strong. Many people bought the HD7970 and HD6970 over the 680 and 580, especially since they had more Vram at the same or better performance and price. Their cards just haven't been competitive since 2013, either in price, performance, or they were too hot. And AMD not having any high-end cards kills their entire marketing, everyone on youtube or twitch is using Nvidia and if you want to see game showcases they will always be on Nvidia. People don't often think about this but the high-end market dictates the entire profil
  11. Great CPU lineup definitely upgrading my CPU next month, but the GPU's were extremely underwhelming, I was hoping for at least feature parity. I wouldn't touch those GPU's with a foot pole without RT as we already know the new consoles will have it. The GPU's are guaranteed to be behind the consoles by next year, which could have really bad implications for future performance. The price is also not very competitive as $50 less at those price points is nothing, we have price differences just based on the cooler design of $50-120. So an Asus RX5700 will likely cost the same as a Gigabyt
  12. Well, Microsoft just announced hardware-based RT for the new Xbox and with that confirmed support for hardware-based RT on Navi. RT is likely going to be the new base for all upcoming AAA games, so Nvidia might double down on it and increase space for RT in favor of traditional raster performance. Now it's going to be really hard to tell what will happen in the next few years as we might see a shift in GPU architecture.
  13. Go for an RTX2060, Microsoft just announced ray tracing support for the new Xbox, same goes for the new Playstation, so new games will likely all start using ray tracing this gen. This could have a big impact on future game performance if your GPU does not support it. Also, the price is supposed to drop soon or a new super refresh according to rumors, so I'd just wait this week and see if Nvidia announces something.
  14. No it isn't. It's not even a new engine; Lumberyard is just Cryengine with extended network features. They basically just slapped on Lumbyard to their already modified Cryengine (Star Engine). Now the engine is basically Cryengine with upgraded physics, 64bit precision, and networking but it's still very much Cryengine at its core.
