  1. Argh too late, someone bought all the NVMe drives on sale while waiting for the answer.
  2. I use Substance Painter and Unreal Engine 4 which takes forever to save and load files on SATA SSDs while on my NVMe it is much faster. On my SATA SSD it takes 50-60 seconds to save my work in Substance Painter while on the NVMe it only takes 5 seconds (I can see in the task manager every time I save in Substance Painter I see the SATA SSD usage of around 400 MB/s, while on the NVMe it goes up to ~2.5GB/s, so it is clearly hitting the SATA bandwidth), Substance Painter autosaves every 10 minutes so you can imagine how much time is wasted by waiting. FYI: I currently hav
  3. Hi, I have been searching for answers about this particular motherboard and NVMe combo, even checked the manual but I keep seeing conflicting information about this. I tthink I can populate 2 NVMe drive at full speed but I need to make sure. I have an i7 6700K on ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming motherboard. I currently have: 1x RTX 2080 Ti on top PCIe slot 2x SATA SSDs 1x NVMe M.2 SSD installed on the motherboard itself I am asking if I could buy a M.2 to PCIe slot adaptor such as this: https://www.umart.com.au/Startech-X4-PCI-Express-To-M-2-PCIE-SSD-Adap
  4. I think there should be a system where if you are making your very first thread in the News section it forces you to read the Posting Guideline and then you have to tick the box "I agree" before it gets posted, like in one of those 'Terms and Conditions' or 'Accept Cookies' popups so it is unmissable.
  5. It does make a good 3D rendering GPU. A RTX 2060 is much faster than a Pascal-based workstation card because it has RT cores.
  6. The gaming industry is quite big last time I heard. I wonder what tools they used to make those games.
  7. Substance Painter, Blender, Unreal Engine / Unity are industry standard tools...
  8. A few 3D modelling software now uses RT cores, for example in Substance Painter on a GTX 1080 it would take 60 seconds to bake an ambient occlusion map. On the RTX 2060 it will only take 1 second. Blender will use RT cores to accelerate Cycle render. Unreal Engine and Unity will soon follow for lightmap baking / realtime. https://www.substance3d.com/blog/substance-painter-summer-2019 https://code.blender.org/2019/07/accelerating-cycles-using-nvidia-rtx/
  9. There is a deal for the LG 27UL600 for $540 Australian dollars +free shipping right now which is decent value and I am looking forward to replay older games at 4K on my R9 290 (e.g. Mass Effect 2, BioShock 2, Skyrim, etc), so higher refresh rate is not that important to me since many old games are locked/buggy at >60FPS. Are there upcoming industry-changing 4K monitors later this year that I should know about? I heard LG is going to release a 4K Nano cell IPS either in Q2 2019 (already past) or H2 2020, I haven't heard any news since then. LG's Nano 1440p 144hz IPS j
  10. I know this is old but to those reading this now - AOC monitors are typically not HDCP compliant.
  11. Lisa Su has said many times in the past that they will stop becoming the budget/value option and be the market leader.
  12. When you compress a game asset the contrast goes down slightly due to DXT compression and/or downscaling (i.e. original 8K texture to 1K). In Unity I use very small amount sharpening filtering when I create my games to bring back some detail.
  13. Low-res textures that is meant to be sharp but couldn't due to optimisation.
  14. Faster storage? Multiple drives in one PCI-E slot?
