    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    Battlefield is literally dead now after the 2042 release and likely won't have any more releases in the series. Even the highly criticized BF5 has more players online. If you read above what I said about the MW: Remastered example, consoles have a clear advantage since the they just ported and...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    Yeah, released like 10 years ago... I'd actually play CS if it was something like CS:S was, but of course it's full of the usual pink rabbit hats everywhere with the "cool customizing". R6: Siege really hit the spot around 2015-2016, but then the pink rabbit hats crawled into Siege as well...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    Well, the PC shooter market is dead. Especially after Battlefield committed the classic go woke go broke suicide. Maybe something will fill the market gap in the years to come, but as of now consoles are optimal choice for simple classic shooters.

    These don't do the trick, they require too much from fellow players, so most of the time you are just wandering around in silence with nobody communicating in your squad. Take a few potshots after 15 minutes of silence, nothing, and then quit in boredom. Something like Ready or Not would do the...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    I'm also leaning towards just getting a PS5. When you think of it, the PC gaming market is dead currently. For example, what if I want to play a nice simple shooter where ADHD characters don't slide around like watching a rock concert with pink furry rabbit hat costumes "because customizing is...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Nah.. At 10 years the PSU is becoming a risk -> PSU needs upgrade GPU upgrade for a 2012 PC means there's something like a 1070-1080 bought around 2017 -> GPU needs upgrade. Modern GPU's/CPU's require a high airflow mesh case -> case needs upgrade. Memory will be DDR3 -> also needs upgrade...

    Ryzen 7 5800X3D Beats Core i9-12900KS By 16% In Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    It's useful data for a long term builder. 720p results today show you the difference when you upgrade to RTX 5000 series later on. Excluding maybe 4K and bigger resolutions, those will be GPU constrained for a long time still.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Did you turn the monitor off? IIRC it should do it while its turned off, in in standby power.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    4 hour pixel refresh would probably take care of it also, without causing as much panel wear as the 1500hour/manual refresh. Assuming it works similar to the OLED TV's.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Does the manual say anything about automatical refresh? Then it would be better to not do manual refreshes.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    It will fit right in there, considering you also need to upgrade cooling solutions to the same noise levels as the dryer.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Heck yes, simply getting rid of the dynamic interlace patterns on that monitor will be worth it.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    42" is too large though, no room for speakers on my corner desk. LG also released those 42" C2 OLEDs, if you can take that size.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    That one's also ultrawide... damn. Well, maybe 2023 brings a 16:9 or 16:10 OLED.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Yeah why is this even happening? Who thought it was good idea to triple the power draw lol.
