Ongoing Discussion Nvidia caves, will support g-sync on free-sync monitors

Recommended Posts

I think they realised more people were playing on Freesync monitors than G-Sync. That premium just wasn't worth it when you could save that sort of money or buy a better GPU. As this technology is for below 60FPS basicly.

Now people have even less of a reason to buy an AMD graphics card.

What? Like not paying for a premium feature (cough "ray tracing") when you don't care about it? Its performance will fit the bill for gamer's like me who aren't gaming as a primary hobby. Yes, it's a little late, but, prices could drop, making it more attractive.

      I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K
      This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better.
      Cost for the 2700X - $280
      Cost for the i9-9900K - $500

      Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users.
      Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.

      These people did a blind test to try to find out:
      Pretty interesting how it turned out.

      I recently purchased a GTX1070ti and then they come out with the RTX2070. Do I feel gipped?
      price of the RTX2070 compared to the GTX1070ti: lowest seen prices: $550 vs $360
      Nope, not at all. Sure, the 2070 has GDDR6 mem over the GDDR5 the 1070ti has, but the hardware points I worry about have negligible differences. Granted, while the RTX does not depend on CUDA cores so much (the nature of Ray Tracing), I'm not one for the new bells and whistles if I do not have a practical need for them.
      The above link is just one comparison and I just focused on the technical specs and not actual performance. This second link is a start for that. The benchmarks show a 78% increase in multi-rendering over the 1070ti.
      The RTX2060 may be someone else's entre to the RTX world, but I have avoided the 60-series nvidia cards as consumer level performance GPUs. Nothing surprising in this graphic:


      I am not authoritative....

      Virpil recently posted their 2 years in review where they also announced they'll be releasing their new WarBRD grip on 23rd January 2019.
      This is their current lineup of products where you see:
      WarBRD Base with a Constellation Delta Grip Desk Mount MT-50 Throttle MT-50 base(now discontinued) with a MT-50CM Grip
       
      Pictures of the new WarBRD grip:




      Its specs are:
      Dual Stage Trigger 1 x 8-way POV Hat (+ Push) 2 x Momentary Push Buttons 4-Way (+ Push) Thumb Hat All Metal Twist Axis with VPC Contactless Sensor Configurable Mode LED So it basically has 2 hats with push, 2 buttons, dual stage trigger and a twist axis with contactless sensor. It looks like a good space sim grip for me even it lacks in the button/hat department a bit. I plan to pick it up when I can in combination with a WarBRD base and recently released cosmosim no center cams for WarBRD base. VPC products tend to be out of stock yet they restock every 2-3 weeks and sell out in hours. If you're interested in picking one, you might need to set an alarm to their restocking schedule. Their next restock will be on 7th January 2019, 6 AM - 9 AM GMT.
