      D1P 2017 Charity Campaign for The Life You Can Save: $1,690 (as of September 8, 2017)   12/12/2016

      I've decided to extend our charity campaign for The Life You Can Save organizations for the entirety of 2017 so feel free to contribute at any time!  Periodically through the year, I'll have game giveaways for those who have donated to the campaign as a "thank you" for supporting this worthy endeavor!

      Welcome former GAFers!   10/21/2017

      I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome any and all "refugees" from NeoGAF who may have discovered our humble little site as a result of the ongoing "situation" over at NeoGAF.   Feel free to check us out and if you like, join our small but interesting community!

      So you're new to DayOnePatch - please read this!   10/21/2017

      First of all, a warm, hearty WELCOME to DayOnePatch - we're REALLY pleased to have you here!   I mean that most sincerely!   Our site was founded in late 2010 when a bunch of people from the IGN forums got sick and tired of IGN being IGN and decided to create a brand new community under the name BadCartridge.  We operated under that name for a few years until there was a change in ownership which resulted in a change to the current name that we have now.  Since then, we've had a couple of owners before I assumed ownership of the site in mid-2016 and here we are today.   I guess I'd better say a word or two about our rules.  Look, here's the deal:  you are probably a sentient human being with a modicum of social skills so you probably have an idea of what is acceptable to say to another sentient human being with a modicum of social skills.  If what you are about to post gives you some pause as to whether you would say in in real life, then you probably shouldn't post it.  In other words, DON'T. BE. AN. ASSHOLE.  It's not that hard!  While we have a damned fine mod team, all disciplinary actions are ultimately my decision as the Supreme High Chancellor (catchy title, eh?  I came up with it myself!) of DayOnePatch.   Now that the unpleasant stuff is over, let's talk about the great things we have.  Well, we have a very semi-regular podcast!   We LOVE having members of our community as guests on the podcast, so if you don't mind having your voice transmitted to DOZENS of people, then let us know if you'd like to be a guest.   We have a Discord server for you to chat in -real-time of if you want to use the voice-chat capabilities for games or just shoot the breeze.  We have two requests: (a) PM me for an invite to the server. (b) If your Discord name is different than your D1P name, then you MUST tell me your Discord name before you receive an invite.   We have a Steam Community Group! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/day1patch# Yes, I know the title still says "Bad Cartridge" and that's because Valve doesn't allow name changes to Steam groups because Valve is stupid.   But the thing that I'm most proud of is the Announcement that you see at the top of the page.  http://www.dayonepatch.com/index.php?/announcement/40-d1p-2017-charity-campaign-for-the-life-you-can-save-1690-as-of-september-8-2017/ For this year, this community has donated nearly $1,700 to organizations that are trying to improve the lives of people in the developing world.  It is a true testament to the character of the individuals of this community that they've given to this project (as well as many, many others) freely and without expectation of anything in return.  Because of this, I'm honored and humbled to be a part of this community.   In closing, we're really glad you're here (feel free to bring other friends too!) and let's have a helluva lot of fun!

  1. I don't think it should have been advertised that way when that is only single core performance. A bit misleading, imo and a way to advertise a higher speed when only one core does that speed in pure stock conditions. I consider stock performance of a 4.7Ghz CPU the performance of the CPU as a whole with all cores running at 4.7Ghz. One thing I have always wondered is how are clock for clock IPC levels between the most current CPU's For AMD/Intel? Say if Ryzen had 6 cores running at 4.7Ghz, how would it compare to the 8700k?
  2. No, should be the standard. To me it's an advantage over the gimping of a processor to not be 4.7Ghz, but 4.7Ghz*. An 8700k would have Cores 0-5 starting at 4.7 and sloping down to 4.1Ghz?
  3. PS Now on a Surface 3

    This service would barely be worth it at $20 a year. Looked at their prices again. LOL. At roughly $200 a year +/-, depending on how long you want to be reamed for, the service should be all encompassing including every game streamed to you.
  4. It is for me as well. Due in part to cheap uPlay codes from GPU promotions. Though I have fallen off and didn't get the Syndicate because I just wasn't feeling up to starting another adventure when it came out. AssCreed II/III/IV/Unity were all excellent entries. Also starting with Unity, the game engine could actually scale competently with more powerful hardware. Many harp on Unity as being an unoptimized mess, which it probably was, but you could run it perfectly with high end hardware.
  5. Any day now they will release the tesselation patch for AssCreed Butt Pirate Edition. Can't wait!
  6. It read like it will be between the 1070 and 1080 performance wise. If that turns out to be the case, my comment stands with 100% truth attached to it. Really hope I am wrong though.
  7. Releasing a card in between the power of a 1070 and 1080 is fucking stupid. A 1070 Ti should be a $450-$500 range card that has ~9 GB RAM that is 5-10% over the performance of a 1080. This is trolling of epic proportions to anyone who uses any GPU be it Nvidia/AMD/Intel. Being dicks simply because they can at this point.
  8. Is the NVIDIA Shield Portable worth it?

    It's a discontinued item. I would assume unless the unit is in bad shape, the value of these devices will either stay steady or keep rising long before it drops again. Doubt this thing was overproduced. I had one and it served its purpose well, unless I wanted to remote stream outside of my home. That's when it was a pile of steaming shit. Big, bulky, stinking shit.
  9. The checks were staggered, and should be complete by the end of September according to a response I got when I inquired about my refund in June. I got my check last month.
  10. ~*AMD Radeon RX Vega Launch Thread*~

    This would have been a great $279-$399 lineup of cards. That's about all they are worth considering the timing of them.
  11. Something something, piracy platform. Any other statement that contradicts the above is a blatant falsification.
  12. Microsoft annoumces a new version of Xbox Wireless Adapter for PC

    Turn controller on. Blink, Blink, Solid Light...2 seconds later...Controller desyncs..Turns off. Welcome to the Wireless Adapter sucks club. Have you tried reconnecting after making sure any Steam games, the Steam client itself and Geforce Experience (If you have it) are closed? That always clears up the issue for me. Also if I let the controller desync while I am in a Steam game, resyncing it requires exiting the game/Steam entirely. Known issue that a number of people experience, but Valve/Nvidia/Microsoft apparently don't know how to fix it.
  13. Microsoft annoumces a new version of Xbox Wireless Adapter for PC

    It would be wonderful if MS could figure out how to give a single Elite controller the ability to sync properly without having to exit any Steam game you're playing. Haven't tried it in about a month, but as of the last time I tried, you have to make sure Steam games are not running before you can sync your controller even if it has already been installed/synced properly. This is better than the previous issues of having to uninstall/reinstall the driver and rebooting to make it work again, but still a load of shit coming from an official peripheral.
  14. These results are very odd considering the games that actually utilize more than 4c8t are performing noticeably worse whether the processors are both at stock values or overclocked to roughly equal levels. I wouldn't think a stock 7700k would be able to compete in these games when the 7800x is overclocked to 4.7Ghz. Is the cache that much worse for gaming tasks? Maybe future BIOS revisions can alleviate this?
  15. How much would a 4k, 60FPS Destiny 2 machine cost?

    2.5 XBox One X consoles stuck together may be able to achieve 4k60fps with reduced settings. That's what I am going to be building.
