    TigerHawk got a reaction from Hymenopus_Coronatus in AMD drop a tease for RDNA 2 in Fortnite   
    Same. I've had ATi and then AMD many many times and I always end up with some stupid driver issues and whenever I have nvidia it is always smooth sailing, except for that one time when a driver update almost killed my GTX 260 because it made everyone's fan profiles flat, no spin up at high temps. To their credit, they fixed it real quick at least.
     
    I do really hope AMD can compete at the high end this time, and by compete I don't mean similar performance +/-10% but 300x the heat and noise. Looking at you, 290X!
     
    That being said, I was expecting to say something along the lines of "To at least get nvidia to lower their obscene prices" this time once again but the 3080 for 699 is downright reasonable for 2020. The 3090 though................

    TigerHawk got a reaction from dizmo in Only 2 Android version updates for your $1000+ phone (Android 11 +12)   
    I'm currently using an iPhone 6s and it received the latest ios update 13.3. This phone is like, what, 5 years old now? Pretty good update life.
     
    Too bad I hate iOS with a passion vs android. Stuck with it until my s20 arrives though. 
     
    They probably think 2 major updates is enough for most people because it seems that the general public switch to a new phone roughly every 2-3 years anyways.

    TigerHawk got a reaction from Ben17 in GOG.com pulls a massive pro-consumer move with updated refund policy   
    This is pretty awesome. I wish I could have done this with Wolcen but it was on steam. I might rebuy it later but right now and for the foreseeable future it is a huge buggy mess where half the stuff doesn't work. Reminds me of Anthem, which I also bought into cause I'm bad at this.
     
    I have to wonder if it is going to make developers/publishers reconsider having their games on GOG though. Too risky and open for abuse?

    TigerHawk got a reaction from amdorintel in (edit: CES) Two arms are better than one - Seagate release dual actuator HDD for Microsoft   
    Data striping. You can have a raid 0 setup within the same hard drive. The top actuator reads/writes half the data while the bottom one reads/writes the other half. That's where the doubling comes in. You are literally utilizing the data twice as fast. This is exactly how raid 0 functions. You could do raid 10 with only two hard drives. 
     
    The firmware has to support such a thing though but from what I gather that seems to be the Idea from the start.

    They say it's only to give doctors a couple hours to operate but this could very well be the platform that future developments in suspended animation in general springs off of and before you know it you've got pizza delivery guys waking up after sitting in a fridge for a thousand years.

    TigerHawk got a reaction from Unixsystem in Red Dead Redemption 2 PC benchmarks- move over Crysis ; UPDATED   
    My beef isn't that my $1000 card is getting old. My beef is that, in literally every other title(well, every other title that review sites benchmark with) it is performing roughly on par with the 2080 or 5700 XT. There are a few percents here and there swinging in either direction for all three, but they are mostly +/- 10%. You can use that and generalize over most of the AAA games out right now and be pretty safe and expect a certain performance.
     
    But in this particular game, the 2080 and 5700XT are performing as expected but suddenly all of the pascal cards, as a GPU family, don't follow this trend? Why? The most obvious conclusion to draw is the drivers were not optimized for the pascal architecture. nVidia is a business after all, and they are just as aware as we are how strong of an architecture pascal was. It makes sense they would want to purposefully make them underperform in a new, very popular first-time-on-PC title like this to get people to buy into their new stuff. Maybe purposefully underperform are the wrong words. More like....not necessarily do their best to optimize the driver for them? Like they had their A team working on Turing optimizations and the C team who only works Tuesdays and Thursdays doing pascal? lol.
     
    I actually don't think this thought is that tinfoilhat-y.

    TigerHawk got a reaction from Taf the Ghost in Navi/Ryzen 3000 launch Megathread   
    The 9900k is not even close to their best seller. They make all their bank on the low tier Pentium and i3 crap they stuff in OEMs and laptops. The 9900k is only a good seller in the enthusiast market which is like...maybe 10% of their sales at most? 
     
    I couldn't find any CPUs in stock anywhere here in the nations capital, Canada computers had a nice little sale on the 9900k making it cheaper than the 3900x and faster in games which is all I do so I just bought one of those instead. 
     
    Was really looking forward to going AMD for the first time since the athlon 64/x2 days but ryzen 3 just ain't quite there yet for me for high refresh rate gaming.  Maybe the AM5 platform will get me.

    TigerHawk got a reaction from Jito463 in Another one joins the exclusive family(?) - Shenmue 3 announced as an Epic Games Store exclusive after lengthy Kickstarter campaign   
    I don't care about the game cause I was never into shenmue. 
     
    My problem with this though is people backed them under false pretenses. This game won't be coming to steam as promised. 
     
    Also, and this is the bigger issue I feel, you become an exclusive on the epic game store to maximize profits and recoup development costs. Except development costs didn't come out of pocket for them, it came from the Kickstarter backers. They are essentially face fucking their loyal fans by saying hey thanks for paying for the game now we're gonna not sell it on steam like you wanted to maximize profits on something someone else paid for.
     
    A dick slap in the face tbh. Legal issues aside, this just leaves a bad taste in my mouth all around.

    TigerHawk got a reaction from MladenM in Folding PCs? Lenovo says "yep"   
    I dunno man.....these folding screen things seem so impractical in terms of long-term usage with a niche market of usability beyond just being a novelty for someone when they first get it.
     
    Feels like this is 3DTVs all over again.
     
    Edit: In their current form, at least. Once we're at the stage where we have screens that are basically fabric and just as durable, that's different.

    TigerHawk got a reaction from GabeThePCHelper in Google hit with €1.5bn fine from EU over advertising   
    Well, after reading the article it seems like their adsense contracts are pretty BS and basically prevent anyone from putting up a competitor's ad on your site, or if you do, google gets to decide how its displayed. Pretty damn shady.
     
    To be fair though, and that guy, google is just the better search engine anyways. Maybe if you want yours to get popular you should try not making it shit? Google still has the cleanest search engine interface. Nothing but a plain white page with their name(usually in fancy dress for special occassions) and a text box. Not all this crap cluttering your screen like yahoo, etc with news about which celebrity is shagging who or what stupid crap x world leader has done now.
