What about external solutions. I hear external usb sound cards are better as there is very little interference from electrical signals from the motherboard.Reply
Dave James Avatar

If you're going pro and recording audio then an external sound card might be a better bet, but the shielding on modern PCIe sound cards is usually pretty good.


You can get a great audio upgrade from cheaper USB add-ons, like Creative's $25 Sound Blaster Play 3, but the discrete PCIe ones are another level on.

I really want to know how the 6 core / 12 thread i7 8700k performs. We know Intel is much better in IPC.Reply
Dave James Avatar

I'm quite excited by the straight 6-core i5, especially if its single-threaded performance is near 20% quicker than the 7600K.


Also, the new Core i3 K-series will essentially just be the 7600K with a $100 price cut!

When you have streamers like DrDis setting the tone for the game, this is bound to happen.

That is good to hear. I love Immersive Sims and Arkane Games in general.

I can wait, if I am upgrading from my generic 22 inch Samsung 1080p monitor, it should be 4K/144hz and HDR.Reply

They're my monitor holy grail right now!

If all the companies are buying the same monitor panel from the same company, what realistic differences will there be in the screens? A different software version, a different mount... I've run out of potential differences..

I always assumed monitor producing companies made their panels (either internally or through a joint-company). It would cut out a 2nd party from claiming profits, whilst still getting flagship performance. Am I missing something here?

There really isn't apart from interfaces, physical design and value added features. Only Samsung and LG can make their own displays from start to finish.

The only different thing Wolfenstein does is that it uses FP16 for shaders instead of FP32. FP16 is less precise, but faster.

1000 players is nothing when you consider regions. It is impossible to play this game if you have to play with someone in another region and accept the server latency in between.

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition review snippet Does Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition reward strategic planning?
You can't brute force your way win battles. And majority of the time and enemies are at the same level as you are, evening the field, forcing you to use your wits more than your firepower to win the battles. The game encourages players to think outside the design box and be as creative as they want to be.

Very violent. Never thought pixelated graphics can glorify gore, but it can.

Overwatch review snippet Would you read more of Overwatch's lore outside the game?
The game doesn't push lore because it will slow down the pace of the game. However make no mistake as Overwatch's colorful characters and the world they live in have a compelling story penned down by the folks at Blizzard. It's Blizzard, so expect quality.

Murdered: Soul Suspect review snippet How do %%developer%% make you feel like a detective in Murdered: Soul Suspect?
This is the weakest element of the game. Instead of going out and finding clues and join in together in a meaningful way, you just spam the use button around the world until you got right ones and get the right set through trial and error.
