Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti review: the numbers are in and the Titan X is toast. Hail to the 4K kingNvidia GTX 1080 Ti review: the numbers are in and the Titan X is toast. Hail to the 4K king

Yeah i noticed some inconsistencies too.


I think some of the results for 4K are rather low in the minimum range, so kinda glad i went 1440p 165hz instead of 4K.. i think the true high end 4K cards will be in another 1-2 years that can handle games without much dips, then it will be worth getting a high hz 4K screen.

Same, several months ago went 1440p figuring the frames/HDR/response won't be in 4k gaming for 2-3 years.

No clue what Valve are doing with this series, a sequel is long overdue and there is a LOT more stuff they could do with this game. More varied enemies, area specific enemies, maybe map hazards, more weapons, more bosses, weather effects, power ups, more random escape points, extra randomness to the levels themselves.

If anyone watches/listens to VNN on YouTube they would know that apparently, the 3rd title is almost complete (supposedly) but who knows. At this point i am getting tired of waiting.

I hope it's a rather big boost overall though in terms of graphics as well as game play improvements. But basically a game like this could do with a lot of new possibilities every play.

TLDR: Make it more replayable than it already is.

Can you build a PC to match the new PS4 Pro's price and performance?Can you build a PC to match the new PS4 Pro's price and performance?

I do agree that a closed system like a console can squeeze a bit more out of equivalent PC hardware, but of course anyone semi serious about PC gaming usually wouldn't skimp on cheaper components anyway.

So at the point you get to running a mid/high end system that might cost 1.5x or 2x more than the console, it will run circles around the console in performance. And if you wanted to save money that much you could just use your TV as your monitor, even doing that would give you a beastly PC for under £1,000 that could do a lot more than just gaming.

I can already hear the console guys whine about that price, but people usually well exaggerate and say stuff like "it costs thousands to build a good gaming PC" Well no, you can do it for under a thousand, but IMO the sweet spot for longevity is that or a tad over.. but still not "thousands"

I mean these days the base of the PC lasts years, it's only really the GPU that could do with switching out say every 2 years if you want to keep up with great performance in new titles.

As a hobby, it's not cheap if you take it seriously no, but it's also not a massive cost compared to some things.

Steam Link review: impressions after a month with Valve's streaming kitSteam Link review: impressions after a month with Valve's streaming kit

I was thinking of getting one of these but it seems other people complain of the same issue, that is the lag even with a wired ethernet connection.

I wonder if the wireless controller is the problem even partially? I have an old wired 360 PC controller that i have never really used, would be interested to see if that makes a difference.

To me though the lag issue would be irritating, especially if it's intermittent. Sounds a bit like micro stuttering when you have multi GPU's.. i would rather not have that kind of issue tbh.

Well you would have to be dumb to buy a Titan X when you can get the similarly performing 980Ti. That performs better in practically all DX11 games than Fury X. In DX12 Fury X and 980Ti are shown to be even, just that the AMD cards got a boost and caught up to Nvidia.

Yeah buy a 300 dollar old 290x and get the same performance, stop nvidia mega profits. It's retarding gaming.

Has to be on Source 2, can't wait! My new PC is ready to handle it. Hope there's a big increase in graphics.

Intel's new Skylake CPUs - here's what they bring to PC gaming and overclockingIntel's new Skylake CPUs - here's what they bring to PC gaming and overclocking

x99 only costs a bit more and you get 2 more cores & quad channel memory. IPC in Skylake is barely any better than Haswell also, makes more sense to go Haswell-e.Reply
Belimawr Avatar

I went with a haswell-e when I upgraded recently (actually just a couple of days before skylake came out) the fact remains those extra cores mean very little in gaming at the moment, the higher clock speeds and better architecture will win out in gaming for the time being while games are mainly aimed at dual core with the odd exception taking up 4 cores, if games start to support more than 4 cores then the haswell-e will pull back in front, but ultimately for the time being other than extra grunt with multiple GPU setups they don't offer much advantage over the skylake chips unless you are running other programs that can utilise all the cores and threads, but even so finding something that can use 12 threads out side of professional tools will be a stretch.


as for quad channel RAM in performance tests it's not actually far ahead of DDR3, it will likely play out in future when the price comes down but for now it seems like nothing more than a gimmick.


it's the same with the extra M2 support it has.
