some benches of the new Titan V

https://wccftech.com/nvidia-titan-v-volta-gaming-benchmarks/

User on reddit has been posting results too.

I get around 132fps, So not a huge jump over a 1080Ti, a lot of cash to outlay for just 15~20% improvement in performance.

Are we starting to hit walls like cpus did?

Well it turns out it really is just a GPGPU but with a video output, hence the massive price. I guess we'll have a while to wait before we get the 11x0 series, or whatever their naming it..

There is a jump in SM units and HBM2, but the clocks are low, doesn't seem to hit the clocks the 1080TI does.

The tensor units are idle, there will be some space saving removing those.

Doesn't seem to be big enough change in volta to see sizable jumps in efficiency/performance. We need AMD and Vega2 to get their act together to give nvidia the push they need.

There is talk that nvidia is going to skip Volta for consumer cards and go to Ampere.

Vesa announces display HDR spec and tiers.

https://www.anandtech.com/show/12144/vesa-announces-displayhdr-spec-and-tiers

With Vesa on board now, we should see a lot more monitors next year with HDR abilities for PC.

Latest patch for the PC version of AC: Origins enables HDR support. :up:

One X also gets better textures and terrain due to increased memory budget.

Done a few new builds recently and must say how much I dislike NZXT cases - truly ordinary building experience. I've built in Phanteks, Fractals and NZXTs now and Phanteks are by far and away the best building experience. That said, once the NZXT build is done it looks phenomenal. This is a H440 I bought in Japan off a friend. Basically one year old but due to some major life changes had to sell it quickly. Picked it up for $1100AUD, about $2500 worth of parts in it. I was going to get an XOX but thought a Skylake 6700K and 1070 Zotac was a better option going into the future.

Recently built in an NZXT S340 Elite - horrible. Thin metal frames need to die.

It looks nice for all intent purposes though. Although I'm not a huge fan of these covered front cases, airflow is the lifeblood of the gaming PC, the more open the front is for airflow the better imo.

Been very happy with my phantek(enthoo pro m) case, haven't had a single issue with it in terms trapped heat/air flow. The only thing I'd like improved on it would be a more elegant front panel to remove the filters.

Yeah, airflow is such a huge thing. Not a fan at all of the move to closed off front panels. My Luxe isn't too bad but I wish the front panel had more space for intake.

I'm still gutted that ThermalTake no longer make the Level 10 GT. What a beast that thing was. No airflow worries at all!

I wish it was a play anywhere title. Love being able to have my progress move between PC/Xbone. Just about done with the story, long game.

Got a brook 360->OneX controller adapter yesterday, works great on the bone but I found it's also really great for my PC. Certain games like Marvel Vs Capcom 3 on PC will only work with One controllers, so my 360 arcade sticks work now using that adapter. :up:

Copy and pasted directly into your Master Race gaming thread! :up:

For those that don't know what's going on...all night Candy Arse has been posting and deleting over and over again that massive wall of text/gif/jpg in the other thread. :roll:

Here's a screen capture I took right before he deleted it (and then re-posted it again...and then deleted it again!) :down:

And who cares if 2d and 3d Mario are different. It's still Mario! It's just another excuse now to milk more Mario games out. Great idea Nintendo.
Yes I'm hanging to see another Uncharted cause I enjoyed them. The stories were great and they had a continuous storyline for all 3 games. How will Mario kart/Mario/smash bros/Zelda be any different? But I guess if Nintendo do it it's ok! Fucking moron. Someone remind me why this fuck nut is allowed to spew crap everywhere... I've tried to keep silent and not post on his posts but damn he bugs the hell out of me.


Who would have thunk it? Nintendo releasing Nintendo games for a Nintendo system. :roll:

Your logic is so ridiculous! Microsoft & Sony would DIE!!! to have the Mario, Pokemon, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart etc..franchises. They would pay BILLIONS (well, if Sony had any money) to get their grubby hands on it, and on the other hand, you're the idiot who wants Nintendo to just dump their key franchises (franchises that have sold 100's of millions of copies, and blossomed more innovation than any other videogame franchises).

You bitched about a new Pikmin even though there hasn't been a new Pikmin in 9 years.

You bitched about a new Smash Bros. even though there hadn't been a new Smash Bros. in 5 years.

And here you are cumming all over yourself over a fifth Uncharted game in under 6 years. Complete and utter hypocrite! :redface:

Currently Retro Studios are hard at work on a brand new IP 3+ years in the making for Wii U, and Monolith Soft are working on an epic new IP also for Wii U. 3 brand new Nintendo developed IP's are also in the works for 3DS.

Even a brand new Yoshi platformer (there hasn't been a Yoshi platformer on a home console in 16 years) is in development. Is it so hard to believe that a brand new HD Yoshi platformer being developed by the genius behind Yoshi's Island, may in fact turn out incredible?

Like I said previously, if Nintendo listened to your shitty advice, there wouldn't be the likes of Super Mario Bros. 3, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Mario 64, Super Metroid, New Super Mario Bros U etc...

No Super Mario Bros. 3 !?!?

I think it's time I upgraded for 4k. I currently have a gtx 980. 4790k. 16 gigs. I want a new cpu and possibly a 1080ti. Need to play these new games in 4k 60fps. I own a Pro for the Sony exclusives. A Switch for Nintendo exclusives. Just thinking I should sell my Scorpio to help fund my new beast. Is it possible to get a 4k blue ray drive for the new pc as well, or am I best off getting a stand alone 4k player???

Does anyone know what could be causing my PC to short out/reset when booting? Powers on for a couple of seconds before cutting out, then repeating over and over.

I blew as much dust out as I could but that didn't help... Could something be loose?

Edit- tried reseating the RAM, now it won't power on at all so I kicked the pos and now i'm done... Fuck PCs.

Sounds like a power supply issue. I had the same issue once, PSU gave out but the backlit keyboard still lit up. I'd be looking to try another PSU before abandoning all hope.

CPU and RAM seem fine, CPU has at least another generation or two left in it, more so if you overclock - plus if you get a new CPU that means a new motherboard and new RAM (you'd be running DDR3, you need DDR4 for anything past Skylake). That's big, unnecessary dollars. I know you can get add blu ray drives, saw a few in Japan off the shelf but they aren't cheap - in the area of $150 to $200. I'd spring for a stand alone player instead. Just buy a 1080Ti for the moment.

Does anyone know what could be causing my PC to short out/reset when booting? Powers on for a couple of seconds before cutting out, then repeating over and over.

I blew as much dust out as I could but that didn't help... Could something be loose?

Edit- tried reseating the RAM, now it won't power on at all so I kicked the pos and now i'm done... Fuck PCs.
