    Developers can now ban gamers on Steam for specific games

    *reads all comments* I liked how Crytek made the multi-player and and single-player components different with Crysis Warheaad and Crysis Wars.

    AMD Zen-based 8-core Desktop CPU Arrives in 2016, on Socket FM3

    The mainstream desktop chips are SoCs and they share the same socket with the high performance GPU-less FX chips. Does this spell the end of southbridge/chipset? If so how does it affect motherboard manufacturers?

    AMD to Skip 20 nm, Jump Straight to 14 nm with "Arctic Islands" GPU Family

    I think they are talking about what DX12 software i.e. games will bring to the table. It is just as exciting a prospect as a new GPU coming in.

    AMD "Zen" A Monolithic Core Design

    With HT the cores are presented a bit differently. If you are running 4 threads on a 4C/8T CPU it will use all 4 physical cores (it will behave like a 4C/4T CPU) instead of using 2 physical cores and 2 logical cores (2C/4T).

    AMD "Zen" A Monolithic Core Design

    It's almost like a full core because (from what I understand) today's CPUs back end is very wide and the front end almost always fails at filling it with a single thread. But with SMT the back end can be fed which results in the performance increase you end up seeing.

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    We are having this discussion to decide what is someone supposed to buy today. If AMD comes with a better technology tomorrow then they will get my vote of favor. But they'll get that tomorrow. Today, G-Sync is better (that's why you pay more for it) and that's why I support it.

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    If it were that simple, they'd have done it already.

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    They are pointing out the present issue. I don't remember them ever saying that this problem will remain going forward. It's common sense that this will no longer be a problem as tech matures.

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    In their video, they clearly show the Free-Sync monitor working perfectly well till 39 Hz. They start seeing problems below that refresh rate.

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    No it doesn't. Do you think NVIDIA and AMD engineers are morons? You need a chip very close and properly attuned to the display to make frame doubling work. If frame doubling could be done properly in software NVIDIA and AMD would have done so already. But they haven't.

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    Yeah. A lot of people in forums are like, "It works at 9 Hz. G-Sync can't do that." I am like, "Who the bloody hell pays over 400$ for a monitor only to play below 25 Hz?" It's crazy! It takes time to draw a frame. What happens if the frame rendering is completed while you are in the middle of...

    How G-Sync and FreeSync differ right deep down inside

    So what? It doesn't matter. When you go below 40 Hz you start getting visual artifacts. Does it work below 40 Hz? Yep it does. Will it look good? Nope. But AMD won't tell you that because you won't support their product like you are now. IMO, the solution G-Sync employs below the Variable...

    Improving Free Sync/G-Sync

    Sigh. The calculations are wrong. If a frame misses the 15 ms window, frame display/refresh times will jump to 21.94 ms at minimum which is about 45.47 Hz so it will be 25-45 Hz and not 25-65 Hz. There isn't much you can do with a window of only 18.06 ms.

    Improving Free Sync/G-Sync

    The refresh rate range for G-Sync/Free Sync monitors is about 40-144 Hz on the TN panels or 6.94 to 25 ms refresh time/interval. My idea is that what if you alter how the behavior of variable refresh rate system like this: monitor gets the frame, renders it, waits for 15 ms, renders the same...

    144 Hz IPS G-Sync Monitor reviewed

    That has already been fixed in the newer G-Sync monitors. They just got caught up in stuff and couldn't make a separate post about it.

    Need a long term working station.

    The difference on a 64 GB (8x 8GB) kit is 100$, which is worth it IMO. You can also go for the Eizo Foris FG2421 monitor. It has awesome contrast ratio of 5000:1 and it's a 120 Hz monitor. It's a 1920*1080 panel though.

    144 Hz IPS G-Sync Monitor reviewed

    They don't. That's why I asked here. G-Sync is superior while gaming. In normal day to day use like web browsing, emailing etc. ULMB is better.

    How does ULMB work with extreme and no over-drive?

    Need a long term working station.

    Sabertooth has more reliability (better capacitors, better MOSFETs, etc.). WS has more features (support for 4 graphics cards, XMP, RAM Overclocking, better RAM power delivery to support overclocking etc.) The WS board is slightly wider than normal ATX boards (0.9 inches).

    144 Hz IPS G-Sync Monitor reviewed

    I meant CUDA. That guy was trying to imply that G-Sync will be dead because of Adaptive Sync. I was trying to imply that just like OpenCL couldn't do a damn about CUDA, Adaptive Sync can't do anything about G-Sync.

    Just like CUDA. Just like 3D monitors.

    Need a long term working station.

    Not necessarily 24 inch but yes. Keep in mind the price though. 600-800$ is fairly large portion of your budget. I am not too knowledgeable about the rest of the stuff so just wait for other people to comment or use other forums too to increase the amount of people who can help. People are quite...
