re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
Cool, so here is some PC enthusiast/addict logic: Since you'll be spending $1600+ on this upgrade, you could add a second 380X and get a 90% gaming performance boost for only 33% more. At that point, you must be the crafty consumer and take advantage of such a bargain....

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
What's your current PSU? If I recall correctly, it needed a dual molex/PCIe adapter. Upgrading that PSU will be another added expense (though a drop in the bucket compared to the >$1000 for the 380X/4k Freesync combo.)...

The 390X may very well be a dual-GPU card (2 280X's in crossfire). It would be a much cleaner naming convention than "295x2." ...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
A headline on Google now the other day said AMD "confirmed" the 380X will have 3D HBM, but after reading a few articles just now, I'm seeing accompanying that rumor/announcement/whatever is that the 380X will be the flagship (aka, no 390X, at least not immediately, or in single-GPU form). Regardl...

Please read the Tech Report article: http://techreport.com/review/27724/nvidia-the-geforce-gtx-970-works-exactly-as-intended It's the best explanation out there. Here are the barebones cliffsnotes: The GTX 970 has 4GB of vram, but 0.5GB of it is a separate partition with less L2 cache. The 0.5GB...

I don't wear a watch, but I may change my mind in the next few years. If the Apple Watch is a huge success, you can bet there will be some immense competition and the idea might become more appealing to me. But it's gotta be round. And thinner....

And if you lined up all of those iphones lengthwise, they'd wrap around about a third of the earth.

Newegg is probably out of stock. There's a "first from asia" icon on the listing, suggesting they are getting it from an asian supplier. Odd. The Amazon listing reflects the correct price point for that SSD. FYI, the Crucial MX100 is a better value. ...

Does genesis only stream? Or does it work like Popcorn Time, where you are streaming but it's through a torrent which you continue to seed until you're done watching the movie and the files are removed from your cache? The latter method can get you a letter from your ISP if you don't do it safely....

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
OK, I see now. It has a separate external USB sound card that is kind of shitty, so that part would just be discarded and never used. It looks cheap anyway. So, without the external sound card, they are just normal high-end headphones (with a mic) that obviously will sound better with a good output ...

That's strange. It could be people using the amplification of the sound card, or bypassing the DAC. I'd need to look into it more to find out. Watch that video, though....
