    Poll: Do you play with an inverted mouse?

    WASD is so that you can use Ctrl, Shift, Alt, Tab and even Caps Lock more easily, sitting at esdf strains your pinky and thumb. How do you inverted gamers even use the mouse for non-game tasks? That would screw me up so bad.

    Any reason not to use dual PSUs?

    If you're running 2 PSUs without redundancy, you're essentially doubling your chance of PSU failure, especially if you use the same model (or PSUs from the same mfg batch). Imagine RAID 0 but with PSUs, you get all the same pitfalls. If the machine isn't mission critical and/or you can tolerate...

    Nvidia announces Streamline, universal framework for super-resolution technologies, Intel is onboard.

    Nvidia Streamline has been designed so that developers have an easy plug and play framework between the game and render API. As the creator of Streamline, Nvidia already has DLSS and DLAA plugins ready, and it is preparing an NIS plugin, as well as a real-time denoiser filter. "Instead of...

    Any gaming laptops with a better screen than the Legion line?

    I'm on the hunt for a gaming laptop that will last me a little while. Looking through the crop of mid-range to more enthusiast tier, none of them have a screen comparable to the Legion series. I've digged through ASUS' G and SCAR, MSI's GP and GE, haven't seen Acer's models yet. All of the...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    With how fast cheap 1080p monitors are these days, I'd imagine even a 3070 will struggle to provide above 100FPS at 1080p in all games, especially once you turn on RT features. DLSS/FSR helps to varying degrees, but isn't bulletproof. Until we can run games at like 200+ FPS 1080p won't go...

    Apple Mac Studio and Studio Display

    Yep, there's a reason Realme, Xiaomi and even Huawei is eating up the mobile computing space. They offer 80% of the experience for like 50% of the cost, while having "great" build quality and looks. Apple stuff is great if you make money off of it, the whole ecosystem is very efficient. But if...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    If a 4060 can handle 120+fps at 1440p that's the sweetspot, good 4K monitors are still too expensive.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    Nvidia's really making me consider their 3080 tier GeForce Now. Seems like such a sweet deal, especially if they update the performance to *80 tier every generation.

    Apple Mac Studio and Studio Display

    I wonder how much performance there actually is in this new Mac Studio, and not HW-accelerated workloads.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    Oh god, this spells doom and gloom to my laptop gaming dreams... In other better news, I'm pretty confident that this is far, far from the optimal voltage range of the chip, this is likely Nvidia squeezing as much performance as possible in internal testing. Will we actually see such a monster...

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    As reviews and benchmarks come out, the S21 Ultra is looking more and more attractive. The new chips from both Samsung and Qualcomm looks suspect.

    How to clone a drive to one that requires larger cluster size?

    Why do you need to clone? Just copy the data over?

    Can we possibly turn this place into forum for handheld gaming, and not just about the steam deck?

    For me it'd probably be like a console cycle, 3-5 years minimum. Storage can be dealt with by network storage or external storage, expansion can be done with a USB-C hub. Yes, you pay more for the form factor, but you can do things with it in that form factor that a normal HTPC can't. Bring it...

    Can we possibly turn this place into forum for handheld gaming, and not just about the steam deck?

    $650 for Steam Deck's specs is a decent deal, I'd use that for a HTPC or a light gaming machine for kids no problem.
