  • All I want is the Obsidian, which Microsoft also owns now, working on the next "real" Fallout game! It's something that honestly that would've never been possible before, but IMO it could definitely save the franchise if done right! Seriously though, Fallout is probably the only franchise that survive such a disastrous event like Fallout '76...I mean, if it can survive a nuclear fallout than I have no doubt it can survive a horrible, money-grabbing, studio destroying game! I just really, really, hope that '76 hasn't tainted MS perception and trust in the franchise...I mean, yeah it basically single-handedly caused Bethesda to crash but it was because they purposefully tried to turn into something it was never ever meant to be, and adamantly refused to admit that it was failure and continued to push it on to people despite everyone knowing it was nothing more than janky, unplayable excuse of a game that was only made to scam it's players of as much money as possible, all under the guise of a Fallout game.

  • My only concern with the notion that exclusives matter more around the launch of a console is that right now, Microsoft are selling every single box they can put on a store shelf anyway. Whether or not there's any exclusives, it will still sell out. That actually gives them an enormous amount of room to really take their time and make sure these exclusives are top quality for when supply and demand start to even out again.

  • I would agree that the driver news shouldn't influence testing on new GPUs, as you said you're looking for the best case scenario out of the GPU, CPU testing on the other hand there could be a case for. If it changes output by as much as 20% one could potentially get a lot more mileage out of an AMD graphics card for those long term scenarios you were talking about, and it could also change the conventional wisdom on what is actually a good pairing between certain mid range CPUs and high end GPUs...

  • really not helpful there Linus, these driver overhead issues impact mid range setups or reduce the value for money if you use a 5600x its better to use a 6800 rather than a 3070 as you get slightly or more better performance, saying that using best setups for for optimal gpu performance is really out of touch as your average viewer isn't a millionaire or a NLworld streamer, hence using best equipment to test a gpu; then the average Joe goes and pairs a gpu based on the results u presented with a midrange cpu and gets bottleneck shows a lack of common sense on your part.. Thanks and apologies if I offended anymore.

Which was lost as together with the server as it was on-site and not geo redundant. Everything is lost, non recoverable. What a shame. 😑

It's always lightning fast. never gets bogged down from large downloads or updates or anything like that. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. However they should inform the public about changes to the memory controller. but honestly as long as it doesn't drastically effect performance, then i don't really care.

  • You need to get Lee Parsons from Ditto Music on your podcast to discuss NFTs, they are doing some cool things with NFTs by allowing investors to fund artists by effectively buying 75% of the royalties up front before release and then making the money back over time - using the NFT as ownership. Artist gets paid early and doesn’t give up all ownership. NFTs and decentralised funding is a really cool use case.

  • I’m curious what electrical price you would need in order to be profitable mining at night on various GPU. I know for me, the electrical cost is greater than what I would make mining. I sure if you had hash rates and power consumption numbers for a given card then you could easily calculate the total power usage for a month to calculate electrical cost.

  • The Wii / Wii U still is the best family console. Like Nintendoland as an example... ok that might be the only game I really know on the Wii U, but like one console, 5 people was really cool. The switch works, but it’s back to only one screen unless there’s a second switch, and while it’s much “cleaner” and benefits from some much improved controllers, it just doesn’t execute as a console where the whole family can play at once - it feels targeted as more of a DS (I realize that there are games that are still family related, it’s just not emphasized in the same way)
