    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    Troglodyte, using a "steering wheel" and pressing "buttons". So behind the times.

    Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500 Quad PCI Sound Card Sealed NOS

    Half Life supported Aureal. Aureal was the beginning of 2-speaker positional sound on PC. And yes, their positional sound was better than Creative.

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Desktop is definitely better set to the panel's native res. It's pretty easy to scale in Windows to make everything usable at 4K. Linux is a different story. Gaming at a lower resolution than native is where anti-aliasing comes in. Traditional AA has usually had some performance hit to...

    The problem with that is finding a 4090 FE.

    4080 Review

    From that Guru3D post: "Note that 100,000 units do not equal the total number of GPUs made or sold. Instead, it is the number of chips that were sent to partners so they could make RTX 4090 models." 100,000 worldwide is a pittance. That's not 100,000 FE cards, that's total for all manufacturers.

    Nvidia 4080 Reviews are out!

    Pricing on 3000 series is not helping Nvidia, AIBs, or retailers clear out stock. Slow rolling 4000 cards doesn't make 3000 look any better.

    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting? 3x8pin to 16 pin 12VHPWR for a couple different modular power supply plug configurations. Make sure the cable you order is compatible with your power supply. The one marked Corsair compatible looks to match both my Corsair RM1000 (bought in 2016)...

    It's still there. I've been tempted all day. I could sell the mobo, but just shipping a 40+ lb case to get rid of it would cost more than it's worth.

    Mick Gordon (sound designer of Doom) issues statement regarding DOOM Eternal

    That's OK. Xir already has a new account with mod access to the same 150 subs as the old one.
