GPU upgrade would fix that straight away, a 1070 would do it, but you'd still need to identify the hardware issue. That said, you've already got the Xbone X

Well that's the thing, 970 is looking pretty tired these days, the next jump for him would be a 1070/1080 and they still go for around $700-800, the X is better value.

The 2500k is still pretty good for targeting 60fps if you overclock it(4.5gz+), but I find even a GTX1080 struggles a bit in 4k, you need to lower a few settings to get stable framerates targeting 60fps. Just depends on the game.

1440p is still a sweet spot for maxing out details and getting locked 60fps+ on PC I find.

1070 cards can be had for as low as $580 but that’s moot. The Xbone X is alright value, the lack of exclusives, gimped CPU and pay to play online are all against it though. The Xbone X only becomes value proposition if you must game in 4K and are satisfied with 30fps.

The first BFGDs, coming later this year from ACER, ASUS and HP, are 65 inches, run at 4K at 120Hz, have G-SYNC technology, HDR with 1000 nit peak brightness, and an integrated NVIDIA SHIELD, giving you instant access to Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube at 4K, NVIDIA GameStream, Android games and apps, and much more.

To achieve this we’ve been working for over two years with leading panel producer AU Optronics to create and perfect 4K and 3440x1440 G-SYNC HDR displays with lightning-fast response times, PC-optimized HDR with 1000 nit peak brightness, full array backlights, Quantum Dot Enhancement Films, and DCI-P3 cinema-quality color gamuts (learn more about NVIDIA G-SYNC HDR here). And now, for BFGDs, we’ve created a 65” 4K 120Hz G-SYNC HDR panel with all of those features, and a full array direct backlight for the absolute best big-screen PC gaming experience.

Interesting, this is the first large screen panel with support Variable Refresh Rates, AU optronics is making the panel, guessing it's an IPS display like the smaller 27 inch models. Expecting it to be expensive and being locked into proprietary Gsync is a bit of bummer.

The number of free games you get with GwG, I don't really hold paying for online against it, especially when it's a cheater free environment. But yes if 60fps is your goal, 1440p and a 1080 is your best bet, 4k60 is really for a 1080Ti. The 256bit bus on 1070/1080 cards becomes a bottleneck at 4k I find.

You’d hope it to be an IPS for the price they’re asking, but it’s strange how they didn’t mention it in the description.

A quantum dot TN panel? :lol:

HDR on ips panels is pretty bad, they lack the native contrast to prevent excessive blooming and washing out the picture when the backlight gets pushed.

I would love one in a 40-42 inch size, usable on a desk and it felt monstrous the one I had at work, plus the dpi for 4k was perfect for text/workspace.

Will be interesting to see how Zen+ goes, thinking about upgrading the htpc, would like something with plenty of cores and good power/performance for the htpc.

This is pretty exciting - hopefully we hit a stage where variable refresh rate tech is standardized across the industry, is on consoles and the displays get nice and cheap. I had my first G-Sync experience the other day and it was amazing.

MS starting to take HDR on PC a little more seriously. The dim desktop issues will be no more!

What’s new in Build 17040
Settings Improvements
Adjust the brightness of SDR content on your HDR display: Starting with Build 17040, Windows now lets you adjust how bright SDR content appears when running in HDR mode on the desktop. On an HDR capable system, you will see a slider in the “HDR and advanced color settings” page under Settings > System > Display. This is one of the improvements to HDR image quality that we have planned based on feedback from Insiders.

It never fails to impress me how much a SSD makes in performance.

I've been using the HTPC (2500k/gtx1080) for gaming/movies a lot and I've had an old samsung 500gb/7200rpm hdd in there that I was just too lazy to replace, it was just unbearably slow at times so I grabbed a samsung 850 evo 250gb last week. Massive difference in system response, bootup and resume from sleep.

I have another laptop with a hdd in with win10, that feels slow at times, it feels like win10 is just being further designed around SSDs, I notice a lot of random reads which HDDs are just terrible at.
