  1. More GTX-1180 Rumours

    Ya, that is my estimate but benchmarks will tell us. I suspect the jump here will be less going from 1080 Ti to 1180 than it was from 980Ti to 1080 or 1080 to 1080Ti. Of course, nVidia generally has a 25-35% target improvement for performance so who knows. Seems like my 1080Ti will be good for another year or more, and with the aging console generations, maybe another 2 years!
  2. Ryzen 2 (Zen+) reviews are out

    Nice. 8700K is still the better cpu for flat out gaming. This is a bit nicer now for a generalized station. If I was upgrading from my 7700k (still no reason too), I would go for a 8700k though. Oh well. I hope they keep the heat on Intel. Now, too bad they couldn't do the same to nVidia. Those guys are getting to be (even more) arrogant assholes.
  3. Best PS4 Console exclusive?

    Bloodborne. That one is a classic one shot game which will never be done again IMO. The rest are all fantastic games, better and worse than BB in various aspects, but not Bloodborne.
  4. Yep, this was a garbage move, even if Epic is doing it.
  5. Yes, they did a great job. Flying the Helicopter around shows it off very well (maxed out).
  6. 5 is very similar to 3 and 4, which isn't a bad thing, getting rid of towers is nice, stealth is back and as good as 4. The story is fine, but I've gone after the sister and makes no sense in some respect (how does she talk to you?). Combat is perfect but I find like all far cry games, it gets easy fast, hope that changes. Yes, playing on hard. You can customize your weapons again. stealth and head shots is all powerful again.... kind of a disappointment. Maybe it gets harder after the first family member taken out.... Wish they attacked your outposts, they only do once. the inventory system is strange and I miss crafting upgrades,but assuming that people are tired of it after three previous games doing that. Helicopters and and planes are awesome. wish this had a photo mode like origins. overall, it is a great game. Not revolutionary, just evolutionary.
  7. I like the synopsis from slant. Basically a 2.5/5 because they don't like the politics. I'm buy this game.
  8. Sluggish video playback?

    Happened to me once, couldn't fix it, reformated and went away. Obviously something got hung up somehow.
  9. I am really looking forward to this. FarCry 3 and 4 were awesome shooters. I didn't pick up Primal... I am not pre-ordering though, waiting for reviews or final product. I no longer pre-order anything if their are no reviews backing up the quality of the game first.
  10. ACUnity, AC3 and I got Ghostlands or Ghost Warrior or something free with my 1080ti, but will never play it. ACOrigins was one of the best games released last year. Going to get Far Cry 5, have finished all the previous ones but Bloodragon and never got Primal.
  11. No idea, but when you compare a simple ray traced image to something else using shaders and such, their are some huge gains. Obviously, depends on what your doing. Existing rendering types are getting insanely awesome though, but still have a lot of room to grow. No graphics card can handle the latest game at 4k/120hz with all graphics settings maxed and new games are only going to push the envelope even more. I can't wait to see what AAA games are going to look like in 5 years from now. Then again, there has been a marked downgrade in graphics for anything but the AAA titles that come out, with everybody taking the "indy" stance which usually means animated graphics. Easier to develop and easier to run...
  12. I think if they started pushing ray tracing in hardware, it would catch up quickly in 5-10 years, hard to say. It uses a lot more calculations.
  13. Going to agree with XBob here. It will be a gimick. True Ray Tracing (the entire game, in real time) is years, maybe decades away. Tim Sweeny did a good article on it a year or so back if I recall correctly.
  14. Ya, would be awesome to see 120FPS Ray Traced games. Probably 15 years away...
