      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.

Probably not high enough to keep @Mr.Vic20 from buying four of them.

I have denounced the evils of Mullti-GPU-ism! Sick of micro stutter, weird frame rates, and graphical issues only experienced bu Multi-GPU users. Paying the most doesn't always result in  the best results. Worse still, Multi GPU junkies lie through their teeth about how great of an experience it is so that they can brag about their synthetic benchmark scores that do nothing but "justify" they costly boondoggle. It was a terrible 3 years with that shit and I'm never going back. Its entirely common to have to wait a month or more on each new game release for the developer and Nvidia/AMD to sort out their respective issues. Not worth it, anyone telling you different is lying. There was a time when SLI/Cross fire was decent, not good, but decent, those times are gone!  

 

P.S. I'm an asshole and now own a Titan X (pascal) so this launch won't change my plans much! :blush:

Not changing out the 1080 in my main PC, might get rid of the 290 in my HTPC if the price/performance of Vega is worth it

In for two of whatever is faster. 

 

I'm hoping as much that the release very close to each other so we don't have to play the waiting game to find out that  Vega is both faster and cheaper.

As long as it's under 1k I'm in on this one, but $800ish sounds awesome! Gonna give this 2year old PC to my Oldest Son, and gonna build a Brand new PC with a personal Budget of 3k. Won't need that much, but no longer am I gonna limit myself. Geezee this 980Ti / i7 4970k has been a great experience all around. I haven't had a single problem with this PC. Kinda got me fired up playing everything at it in 1080p, or lower stuff and playing in 4k. With the Scorpio coming out, this should be more of the same this year.

I need a new board. I have a Vive now so I need all the power I can get. And I have a Freesync 1440p 21:9 monitor too so I guess I am kind of forced to AMD. They've always treated me well. We'll see what happens. I am very curious to see how they fare.

I'm rooting for AMD but buying Nvidia (but not until it hits a price I'm comfortable with)

I have zero brand loyalty but am locked into the ecosystem for now.

Graphics cards are my thing. It's one of my big interests. And it says something when the Vega presentation was putting me to sleep.

 

I started skipping through it and literally every time I clicked on the seek bar, I heard the term "VR".

 

The only other mildly interesting thing is the return of FP16 precision. Time to pull out our old GeForce FX cards.
