      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. I pay $80 currently for 350/30 That'll soon be $80 for 1000/1000
  2. I blame miners (again...still?)
  3. Couple things; 1) You said 4.6 Ghz or higher 2) I suggested that he get an Rx570 and call it a day, while saving up for a full rebuild. Hell, he could use the rest of his left over budget for a 1080p freesync monitor instead of going full retard and investing into a dead platform.
  4. Shouldn't you maybe have confirmed compatibility before telling him what to buy? Even if he does have the R2 (very slim chance) it's not going to OC anywhere close to your cited 4.6. Especially with the CLC cooler you suggested, since you have no airflow over the VRM's. He'd be lucky to get stock speeds without throttling.
  5. The motherboard he owns isn't compatible with the CPU you're suggesting. Full stop. So in order to 'upgrade' to an 8350, he'd need a high end 990FX series board. On the AM3+ platform. In 2017. None of that is a good idea.
  6. You don't know what you're talking about, this much is clear.
  7. The VRM's on that board will weep trying to power an 8350 (or 9590) I'd say you'd be getting a variable 45fps with the 570/X4 965 combo.
  8. If you want to rebuild; https://pcpartpicker.com/list/s2j7Fd You can reuse your existing storage, case, monitor, mouse, keyboard..etc. That's the "balls to the wall" rebuild which will crush 1080p gaming for years for about $900. The 570 suggestion would provide a good experience for $200. I heavily advise against moving to an 8350.
  9. Buy a Rx570 and save up towards a full rebuild down the line. The 570 is a solid solution to your current build.
  10. The answer to this is a flat no.
  11. Stop suggesting he buy an i5 you sadists.
  12. I was speaking specifically of the name Epyc. It is essentially mocking Intel's Epic naming for Itanium. Also, lol at calling any of this bulldozer.
  13. Epyc is a name that throws serious shade at Intel.
  14. The demo had HBCC on and was comparing it to HBCC off in a side by side comparison in TR'16 benchmark in 4K with 2GB of VRAM allotted. 51 minutes in;
  15. I posted a screenshot from the test AMD presented yesterday in their financial analyst conference which included Vega performance.
