    National Day of Unplugging March 5th 6th

    I mostly unintentionally did this yesterday by sleeping through most of the day, so that's all you'll get out of me.

    RTX 3080 vs Radeon 6800 XT - VR testing

    Gonna be great to test out performance once Nvidia gets the stuttering and lag issues fixed. It's a mess right now, completely unplayable experience in VR.

    Have yet to see play and charge kits specifically for this controller, but rechargeable battery packs will work. Xbox One kits aren't backwards compatible due to the differing shape of the pack cover, unfortunately.

    Xbox series X controllers on sale at $40

    AA batteries are standard on this controller, so no play and charge cable included. The dongle requires a Windows update, but that's no big deal. Can confirm. However if the Bluetooth device on your motherboard (or some third party dongle) is inadequate, connectivity will be spotty at best. Ask...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    Looked into changing the video memory target setting via config.ini, that seemed to help a bit. Bounces between decently smooth and slowdowns a bit. DLSS either balanaced or performance.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    Campaign runs like dog shit for me on ultrawide 1440p with a 3080, 457.30 drivers. Turning off ray tracing helped, but I'm seeing others with good performance results, so that's annoying.

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    That's fair. I was just plugging it in to test it out, don't have much time to play tonight.

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    No complaints here, much better than the Wraith Prism. When I had my 2080Ti I was trying to eek out every bit of cooling I could get since that card would get into the 80s under heavy load, so removed any potential CPU heat from the mix.

    RTX 3090!!

    On board with others in the thread: I'm happy you feel good about the card. But very disappointed it does not make you [H]ard.

    Anyone that ordered a 3080 from Provantage get an update or ETA?

    Contacted yesterday about my order since I had to update my CC info. On backorder... But the card I ordered is one with all shitty POSCAPs so decided to email to cancel the order. Would suggest anyone else who has tried to order find their model and figure out which capacitors are being used.
