    "Steam Was Killing PC Gaming", Former Valve Dev Says

    Steam has been a huge benefit to PC gaming, I can sort of remember what the market was like pre steam, and it was a hell of a lot worse than it is now. I feel this ex employee is just been salty as valve took a new direction which made him surplus to requirements, because how someone can legit...

    Intel Packs 3D X-Point and QLC NAND Flash Into a Single SSD: Optane H10

    One of the reasons I dont like m.2, they could definitely make a 4TB U.2 or PCIE drive tho. Perhaps they shouldnt have raised expectations by saying one wouldnt need a second drive and mentioning about QLC density when they cant outsize a TLC or MLC m.2 device.

    NVIDIA Extends DirectX Raytracing (DXR) Support to Many GeForce GTX GPUs

    I was expecting a much bigger gap to be honest, usually specialised hardware with optimised routines has much more than a 2-3x performance improvement. This RT was optimised for RTX and it only has a 200-300% advantage depending on game. All this data has told me, is that if games get made...

    Intel Packs 3D X-Point and QLC NAND Flash Into a Single SSD: Optane H10

    With the article going on about QLC storage density and quoting intel that I wouldnt need a second storage device I was expecting at least at a minimum a 4TB capacity on this thing, only to read that the largest model is just 1TB, LoooL. Sorry but I advise anyone to stay away from QLC, as its...

    Kyle Bennett of HardOCP Joins Intel as Director of Enthusiast Engagement

    It is interesting for sure. We have always had the debate of how neutral are media based product reviewers, some of us feel they are too close to the companies who own the products they reviewing. The fact many ex media reviewers are now been recruited by these companies I feel kind of backs...

    DirectX 12 Makes Windows 7 Debut With Latest World of Warcraft Patch

    That link doesnt say what you said at all. The techpowerup story says DX12 will be made available in WOW via a patch. It may actually mean what you say that DX12 is been distributed via the patch, but its exact wording doesnt say that. So again accusing me of not reading things when I have...

    DirectX 12 Makes Windows 7 Debut With Latest World of Warcraft Patch

    I suggest you read the thread, you just told me to read the thread to find answers that are not in the thread, I know because I checked before posting, and I checked again after your post. So the question remains if anyone knows, how do windows 7 users download dx12? Is it confirmed also if...

    EVGA Unleashes the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Series

    You do realise there is more DVI monitors in use than DP right, and how is a 3rd DP port more useful than having the choice of all 3 ports, its versatility. I commend EVGA for this choice and I expect it will get them some sales they otherwise wouldnt have had from DVI monitor owners.

    Steam and THQ Nordic Issue Statements on Metro Exodus Exclusivity on Epic Games Store

    To be honest guys I have no issue with a competitor been on the market, my issue is with the policy of bribing publishers for exclusivity, exclusivity is an anti competitive practice, its not good for the consumer. I have no issue with their free games policy which is nice, but the making games...
