Intel Kaby Lake: Core i5 7600K review

Bagpuss

1 year ago

Clock for clock these 'new' chips are just 10% faster than my current CPU.

A 10% IPC increase in 3yrs, 3yrs ffs!

Lol..by that reckoning it will be circa 2035 before my own rule about not upgrading my CPU until performance has at least doubled is reached.

By that time I'll be too old and more worried about not getting to the toilet in time to care about how fast my PC is.

Nintendo's 2017: two seismic shifts, and the conundrum that will decide its future

Bagpuss

1 year ago

How can it fail when Nintendo has the gaming media in it's backpocket, not through dodgy financial incentives, but relying on the rose tinted nostalgia of gaming journalists playing Nintendo games as kids, desperately wanting them to succeed with everything they do.

..It's this kind of blinkered, childhood loyalty that lets them get away with stuff that the other console makers would never be able to.

..you lot give Nintendo too much of a free ride.

Eurogamer's game of the year 2016

Bagpuss

1 year ago

This game could only have GOTY status from people who have a ready supply of known friends and work colleagues at hand everyday/everytime they actually want to play it as it was intended, in a team, whether at professional e-sports or amateur level, where you know those people will actually play as a team.

..for everybody else, like 98% of us, it's a nothing game, dependant on not being paired with some anonymous 13yr old fuckwits that just do their own thing every round.

How to access smoother performance for The Last Guardian on 4K displays

Bagpuss

@Loefah

Despite what they say in public, Sony now regard the PS4 Pro as their main focus.

This time next year, the base PS4 will be the 150 budget entry machine and the Pro will be the 250 main
seller.

Lower performance and graphical fidelity will simply be the accepted norm for the budget priced base PS4.

Why I think big console game sales are down

Bagpuss

1 year ago

Games just aren't worth the 50+ price tags to anyone but the hardcore, end of story.

The rot set in when DLC became the latest rip off idea about a decade ago and it's scope has grown to monstrous, out of control proportions.

When you're talking about prices of 80-100 for the fully loaded, season pass editions, it's an obscene development and quite frankly developers can go fuck themselves if they think I'm going to fund the purchase of their second home or third supercar with their annual bonus off the back of attempting to rip me off.

No game is worth the kind of money they're asking thesedays.

Bagpuss

1 year ago

Lol, I really don't think DF videos are doing the PS4 Pro sales prospects any good at all.

The more I see, the less it appeals.

Sony are definitely going to have to rethink their rules regarding how developers are allowed to deploy the extra power available to them because right now they're holding the PS4 Pro back to a degree that turns me right off even considering purchasing one.

Right now the biggest bottleneck in the PS4 Pro is Sony themselves, not the CPU.

...and the Scorpio is little more than 6mths away from being showcased at E3.

You have a short window Sony, best not waste it.

Final Fantasy 15 to have 1080p60 mode for PS4 Pro

Bagpuss

1 year ago

@Sheikah

Because while they may have doubled GPU power they've only increased CPU power by 30%.

..that's why Tomb Raider, and others, can't maintain a locked 60fps at 1080p, the CPU simply isn't fast enough to provide the GPU with all the draw calls that 60fps demands.

The fact they still choose to do this in Japan illustrates yet again what a narrow minded, parochial little company Nintendo still is.

It doesn't understand and makes no attempt to reach out to the Western consumer, and it never will.
