    Editorial NVIDIA: Image Quality for DLSS in Metro Exodus to Be Improved in Further Updates, and the Nature of the Beast

    Add to this that even once its trained it will probably only look on par with the image otherwise upscaled (as per HWUB BFV video where the upscaled to 4K image was very close to native 4K yet DLSS was miles off). Checker-boarding (Horizon Zero Dawn as an example on the PS4 Pro) and upscaling...

    How Big of a Difference is Between 2933MHz and 3200MHz RAM?

    Judging from experience on my wife's 2700x based system the different in real world usage between 2800Mhz C16 (overclocked 2400Mhz ram), 3000Mhz C15 and 3200Mhz C14 is relatively small. It will probably show up in benchmarking terms, and I won't argue there isn't a difference, but in actual...

    Gaming above 60 Hz

    1440p 120-144Hz* with G-sync for me. I made the mistake of having my test bench hooked up via HDMI to the same monitor (limited to 60hz no G-sync). Completely moved my desk around so I can quickly move the DP cables between systems.

    New PT Data: i9-9900K is 66% Pricier While Being Just 12% Faster than 2700X at Gaming

    :) Purely for testing purposes I am on the hunt for another 690 and Titan (OG).

    New PT Data: i9-9900K is 66% Pricier While Being Just 12% Faster than 2700X at Gaming

    Sounds pretty similar to my experience on both platforms (8700K & 2700X) - Install memory, enable XMP, check everything is as it should be and then.. enjoy. Meanwhile my other Ryzen system gets a little more.... UEFI playtime. Saying that is does look like this: :)

    Intel's 9th Gen Core Gaming Benchmarks Flawed and Misleading

    Or you know, you could just enable XMP within the bios on the AMD board?? I did this on both of my Ryzen systems and presto, magic! RAM speed and timings matching the XMP profile.... Amazingly these steps also had to be followed on my Intel system as well.. The result... Identical memory...

    GIGABYTE Intros the AB350N-Gaming WiFi Mini-ITX Socket AM4 Motherboard

    Looks interesting although I am not 100% sure on the layout.

    Rumor: Nvidia GTX 980MX and 970MX comes for laptops

    Hmmm sounds interesting on paper but in reality a small bump to Cuda Cores coupled with lower clock speeds (assuming base & boost) would lead to an overall wash in terms of performance.

    MSI Announces the Gaming 24 AIO Desktop

    It must be available as a soldered version as well otherwise you wouldn't get it in such thin/light gaming laptops.

    MSI Announces the Gaming 24 AIO Desktop

    I don't really understand why they don't at least offer a 970m?

    AMD Radeon R9 380 Launched by PC OEM

    This is the first time I have heard the rumour that the 380 could be a 285 or even 280x rebrand... And.. LOL at Intel CPU's being trash in DX12...

    Rare GPUs / Unreleased GPUs

    Also at the time it had no hardware based resolve MSAA ability built into the pipeline. It had to do it all via shaders which completely crippled it in benchmarks that used any amount of MSAA. IIRC this was fixed when the 3870 launched but it was still lacking absolute grunt as per your post.

    NVIDIA to Restore Overclocking on Mobile GPUs

    Hmmm my 780m running at 980/6000 (up from 772/5000) wants a word..

    GeForce GTX 870m too hot?

    There are a few ways, just depends on how in depth you want to go: - Raise the back of the laptop up by 1-2". This will aid airflow getting to the fans. - Run with a laptop cooler. Depending on the laptops design these will work well or do bugger all (unless heavily modified). - Re-paste...

    GeForce GTX 870m too hot?

    Perfectly normal temperatures for a high end mobile GPU. My 780M overclocked will nudge against 90 degrees after a prolonged gaming session.

    New Nvidia Drivers 344.48

    Installed these yesterday and for the first time since running Surround the driver "forgot" my Surround setup existed requiring a manual re-build. It was almost like being back on Eyefinity with its profile issues. I havn't tried my 690 in any games yet with the new driver but I am not...

    NVIDIA Could Review GTX TITAN-Z Pricing for the Retail Channel

    :confused: It is basically two (downclocked) Titan Blacks on a single card. It is quite easy to see why it is worth more than a Titan Black in isolation. Whether either it or the Titan Black are worth their respective price points is a different arguement altogether.

    9800GTX +Amp Edition (Zotac) 6pin vs 8pin

    You can't compare difference architectures like this. You can only really compare overall performance. That said your point about the 9800GTX performance relative to todays cards does stand.

    Dell Readies Alienware 13 Gaming Laptop for Fall

    Why is this running a ULV Intel processor when the likes of Clevo, MSI & gigabyte are all able to fit full bore quad core i7's in (what appears to be) a similar thickness chassis?!

    Mad Catz Ships the S.T.R.I.K.E. M Wireless Keyboard

    The ergonomics of that look horrific. The spacing between the WASD keys and the space bar makes it look down right awkward to use.

    How much will the i3 4150 bottleneck a GTX 770?

    In something like Crysis 3, no it won't maintain 60FPS at all times*. The level "Welcome to the jungle" absolutely hammers the CPU (the grass in particular is a heavy burden). Even at 5888x1080 I still noticed an improvement going from a 4C/4T CPU to a 4C/8T CPU. My laptop for example...

    GTX770, help me find good graphics card.

    No. It normally just means the PCB has been modified (often this reallt means "made cheaper to manufactuer") in some way, the core is a newer revsion or possibly just a different cooler (think VTX 290 - X edition Rev 1 & 2 - the only difference being the cooler).

    Just how quick is a 780m anyway?!

    Thanks. :) I think the ram made more difference for the 780M than it did for the 760. At 1080p "playable settings" the 192GB/s bandwidth seems enough for the 760 core to keep it fed, thus the increase to (7Ghz) 224GB/s yielded less benefit. At 5888x1080 this is a different story mind with the...

    Just how quick is a 780m anyway?!

    This is a question that has bugged me for a while yet I have never been able to get conclusive proof; Just how fast is a GTX780m(880m) in relation to desktop cards? Various reviews and forum posts state the performance is anywhere from GTX670 levels (makes more sense) right the way down to the...

    Hopefully a new vBios for my AMD Radeon 8970M!

    Is it right that the machine is cutting off when it hits a certain temperature? I am not familiar with Alienwares since I got rid of my M11x but my Clevo P170SM simply throttles back the GPU if it hits a certain temperature (well technically the Nvidia bios does this but the effect is the same)...
