  1. I remember having a 3.5" floppy as A: and a 5 1/4 floppy as B: and not having a C or D drive. The 80's were AMAZING.
  2. Blame it on Apple. I read somewhere that Apple uses something like 80% of TSMCs fab output for their Apple silicon and iPhone/iPad SoC production. If true, that would explain why it seems easy to get the latest iPhone, but harder to fins AMD CPUs and GPUs. As for cutting back on SoC production for Sony and Microsoft, I can't see that happening. AMD wants to keep those high volume customers happy.
  3. Are you on the Minecraft beta? I believe the DXR stuff is only on the Beta branch at the moment. I poked around the other day and couldn’t find any RT worlds, so perhaps I will ask on the dev discord.
  4. One of my coworkers is playing on an original 2013 fat One. He turned all of the graphics down and has quite enjoyed the experience. I agree that the game should have been pushed back again to try to smooth out the problems on the One/Ps4. But it wasn’t. I just don’t think that CDPR is going to really suffer that much from this. Perhaps it will serve as a cautionary tale about hyping something so much that it can never meet those expectations, both by the developer, but also by the gaming public. The one thing that Bethesda does really well is not talking seriously about games unti
  5. I think mounting it to the drawer is a really bad idea. The runners the drawer slides on will be a weak point, and I suspect you will pop the drawer off of its rails on a regular basis, if not actually breaking them. Do you have even basic carpentry skills? You could make a bracket that clamps to the desk surface that you can mount the wheel on to push it out past the drawer, and then bolt the wheel to that. Use some clamps to secure your bracket to the desk and it would be pretty solid.
  6. I honestly think you are overestimating the reputation hit. Especially if they keep releasing patches and improving the experience. As I said, it is no worse than Skyrim was, and that is widely considered one of the best games in the last decade.
  7. I would love to sell 13 million games and have people call that disastrous. Also, as bad as it might be (I wouldn't know, I am loving it and have had hardly any issues beyond minor graphics glitches, but I am on a Series X) it is still better than Skyrim was at launch. So there is that. I don't think CDPR has anything to worry about.
  8. That is not even remotely true. Ray tracing is certainly not an Nvidia technology. I knew a guy in the early 90s that was using ray tracing when rendering his computer generated graphics. It really isn't a new thing (in fact, I believe it was first theorized in like the 16th century.) nVidia certainly has great hardware for real time ray tracing, and their implementation is the best in gaming at the moment, but it doesn't follow that they will always do it best. The new Big Navi GPU's totally support directx 12 ultimate for real time RT.
  9. I just checked on my X. it is 100% on the game store for sale. It is nice that Microsoft understands that people like playing older games and makes them available. I just wish they would do more original Xbox games, particularly the Mechwarrior ones.
  10. IF you don't want to print big things, but do want really high quality prints, check out a printer like the Elegoo Mars or the Anycubic Photon. They use resin rather than filament, so can be a little more expensive, but the results are outstanding. Ideally, you want both an FDM and an SLA printer at some point, since each has its strengths.
  11. Xbox all the way. I have ~1500 dollar CDN system and I have been happier gaming over the last week since getting a series X than gaming on my PC. I can't imagine a 500 PC, even used, delivering a better experience.
  12. To be fair, you are going to spend just as much or more on upgrading your PC in the seven years between console generations than you do on buying the new console. That isn't to discourage you from diving into PC gaming though! It is a lot of fun to build a PC and get it running on your own.
  13. Because the HMD is not doing any of the heavy lifting when tethered. That all falls to the system GPU. When using untethered, the internal SoC does a pretty good job, but it isn't really comparable to the full tethered experience. the textures are not as rich, the level of detail isn't anywhere near as high. It is really good for basic stuff though. Robo Recall looks way better when played tethered, but it is just a lot more fun to not worry about the cable and accept the lower fidelity. I use FitXR a lot and it is great to not have to worry about a cable. There are certainly trade offs
  14. Daaaaaaaaaang. I would likely have to sell a kidney to get one of those.
  15. That CL18 DDR isn't at all ideal. AMD recommends CL16. The processor will thank you for the better memory. Also, RGB? Ick The system is PCI-E 4.0 compatible with either the Asus X570 or the Gigabyte B550 board. Also, could you tell me where you are getting a 3080FE for 700 dollars? I need one!
