    The elusive logic of multi-display ordering

    You can set whatever monitor you want to be primary and drag the. left and right to correct where windows thinks they are relative to each other. As to the built in algorithm that tries to guess their order and position I have no idea.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    The truth is Nvidia has done some estimation of what they think they can sell the 4000 series cards for in the short term, given the quantities they have on hand and will produce in the next few months and how these cards compare to the 3000 series' current street pricing. After that time, AMD...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Interesting- the C in DSC does stand for compression so I wonder with enough of a leap over native bandwidth over DSC you can see the compression artifacts in text. I will have to play with this when I get home.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Sounds like you are dropping to one of the YUV modes other than 4:4:4 if the text looks less clear. The NVCP custom display mode settings screen is quite buggy and I had it setting YCbCr 4:2:0 when messing around with modes that aren’t really possible.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    That’s a good question, haven’t read much about AMD stock situation. I do know that Nvidia makes and sells a LOT more GPUs and therefore has a much larger inventory in general, $-wise.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    It’s not a bad business strategy to help clear out all the 3080 stock before releasing a replacement but I do hope they do and bring that performance tier available to everyone who skipped that tier last gen. I will stick with my msrp 3080 most likely.

    A good explanation of VESA's new ClearMR motion clarity standard

    I applaud even an effort to standardize measurement of motion clarity. Even if it falls short (and the article does cover a reasonable amount about what’s measured) I think most monitors with poor motion response will leave this measurement off. So monitors with high motion clarity on say the...

    I think once you’ve owned a monitor and used it as a daily driver for a while you may feel the shine has worn off, it may develop new flaws or you notice and are bothered by things you missed initially. A review a few months in can be pretty valuable.

    Klipsch 2.1 BT (Bluetooth) $49 Walmart

    To some extent most of the work nowadays is done in driver but with a BT device in particular the driver and BT “card” or usb dongle in your computer handle the channels, codec and source side of things, the speaker here handles the DAC and amplification.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    I doubt that either the vanilla 4090 or 4080 will be 800w. I doubt a vanilla 4090ti (if one exists) would be either. Maybe a server/ DC or pro or Titan would hit that number, but those are for people who want the big numbers.

    How come none of the mechanical keyboard last more than 3 year, what happens to 50M keystroke guarantee?

    A simple solution if you are having repeated key failures is to buy a keyboard with replaceable keys and keep a few spares. Problem solved. I have about 10 mechanical keyboards and only one of them (corsair early k series) developed an issue with key double registration but I am pretty sure it’s...

    Sony Inzone Gaming Monitors

    Slightly overpriced IMO and not my favorite size/res combo (27”/4k) but for those looking at 27” it might be interesting if it drops a couple of hundred dollars in price as time goes on. Some of the smaller touches like full software control over everything and solid engineering on overdrive to...

    HDMI 1.4 wont produce 60HZ 2560x1440

    I thought DP connectors were being phased out (particularly in laptop / SFF) by USBC connectors which still carry DP. You just need a usb c to dP cable or adapter. Unlike DP with HDMI 1.x support for non video resolutions (like QHD) is not promised or tested usually unless you see it on a spec...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    That’s a great deal. I have really been enjoying this monitor now that I have it dialed in and know it’s quirks well.

    High framerate and OLED

    It’s most likely a simple volume and product development cost issue. R&D is spread over units sold. The number of OLED PC size monitors sold is minuscule (to date) and until recently exclusively for professional use. The first higher than 60hz displays have been non monitor use ironically...
