    That is... a sentence... even my EE background is having trouble parsing all that at once...

    That was meant for those who don't use their browser. /a
    Yea, I still haven't updated to 20H2 because of that. I guess I meant "don't go out of your way to update until everything is sorted"

    IIRC, Windows doesn't auto-update to newer Windows versions unless you click either the "download and install" button when it shows up or you click "Search for Updates" in the Update menu, otherwise it will only upgrade to a new version once the current version runs out of support.

    I like to live on the edge. I will. Always have with every new version.

    "Pro" tip: don't update at launch, let others be the beta testers.

    Techstorm970 reacted to Master Disaster in Valve Ordered to Give Apple Information on 436 Steam Games As Part of Epic Games Legal Case   
    That's not the issue though. Apple are launching their toys out of the pram with a trebuchet and trying to take everyone else down with them.
     
    They're trying to demonstrate that 30% is reasonable and that other stores make just as much money as they do.
     
    Essentially they either want to get off with it on the fact others are also doing it or ensure that any ruling applies to their competitors as well.

    I'm so f*cked if my GTX 1080 dies.

    Techstorm970 reacted to Middcore in HP is buying HyperX   
    I mean, they may not be Logitech but they're miles ahead of where HP is in the peripherals space with Omen. There's an Omen-branded wireless charging mouse pad I briefly looked at last year when I had a wireless charging phone, and I've seen a couple of mice. I have no idea what other Omen peripherals exist. 
     
    For brand recognition/mindshare in the gaming peripherals space (NOT a reflection of quality either way, before someone gets mad at me) I'd say Logitech, Corsair, and Razer are the top tier, and then HyperX is firmly in the second tier with brands like SteelSeries and CM.

    Techstorm970 reacted to minibois in HP is buying HyperX   
    Not sure what HP sees in HyperX to be honest.
    Other than the Cloud series of headsets, HyperX isn't really that well-known of a peripheral maker. Their mice and keyboards aren't much special either. Maybe patents? not sure.
    As far as I know, the HP EX950 for example uses a controller from Silicon Motion and NAND from Micron.

    Techstorm970 reacted to sub68 in HP is buying HyperX   
    I don't like this.
    really HP of all companies.
    Yes I am agents this even tho I have a HP prebuilt (from 2011 b4 hp went completely bad)
     
  11. Agree
    Techstorm970 reacted to Blademaster91 in HP is buying HyperX   
    This is really disappointing, Kingston HyperX headsets are some of the better gaming headsets in my opinion.
    I expect that HP will probably cut cost on the HyperX brand.

    Techstorm970 reacted to LAwLz in Gaming Performance Tested On 'Worn Out' RTX 2080 Ti Mining Card   
    And it's some unknown YouTube that might as well be lying to get views. 
     
    But yeah... A cards cooling getting slightly worn out and therefore not boosting as high isn't exactly big news. 
    You might actually experience the same performance drop from just the cooling getting clogged with dust. 
    I don't really think mining on the cards will cause any special performance drop you wouldn't see from let's say a card used for gaming.

    Fictional violence with no real world consequences, proven by multiple studies? How awful, think of the children.
     
    In game gambling via chance systems designed to take advantage of young people that have caused real financial harm to families? A-OK.

    So I played Tetris once and now whenever I bag groceries I try to fit everything in perfectly.

    GTA VI: All vehicles are unoccupied self driving cars. Problem solved.

    lmfao, this is literally a release for most people, go and kill people online so you don't in person. people don't see a murder in a video game and kill someone in real life, yet people have staged whole murders to mimic movie plots, what the fuck!?

    Summary
    Representative Marcus Evans Jr. filed a bill (HB3531) that proposes changing the definition of 'violent video games' to:
    In addition to banning the sale of these 'violent video games' to not just minors but everyone.

    My thoughts
    This is the most boomer 'hrr drr video games bad' thing I've seen in a while... What about movies? If violent games are such a problem are you going to ban violent movies too, hell might as well ban all songs that reference drugs because that's clearly what's causing the drug problem. (obligatory /s)
    I'd like to see literally any piece of evidence proving that video games like GTA V have "become an issue".

    I sincerely hope this doesn't pass.
