I don't use my Rift all that often so hadn't noticed but hey I get a some free credit.

It does show at times Oculus is a very young software company, I would guess they have learned from it and it won't happen again.

Crysis was the turning point for me, it turned me into a PC gamer. I remember getting a x1950 to put in my Pentium 4 PC. AFter that I started to look more seriously and soon built my own PC which has just been evolving ever since.

You can currently get a Steam Link for 80p

IneptPercy

6 months ago

@bauhaus

The game runs at whatever resolution you tell it, I have found running on my netbook which is 1366x768, that when I launch a game it will start up at UHD or 1080p depending how I last played which then gets scaled down. Of course I then go in to options and set it to 1366x768 to reduce bandwidth/lag.

So in theory you should be fine, if it struggles just go to the PC and turn the resolution down.

In simple terms we all just need to refuse to buy at inflated prices, if we did the scalpers prices have to come down to rrp to sell which would make them a loss and then they would stop buying them all up.

Absolutely love it, third copy I have bought (dreamcast, 360, PC)

Ran scaling at 150% in rez and 120% in area x on my 290x and didn't notice any problems.

Controls with the touch controllers are amazing.

Very happy!

eBay takes on SNES mini scalpers, pulls listings

IneptPercy

10 months ago

Good thing is this will push many scalpers back to 29th August which could give more of a flood and race to the bottom with scalpers. Likewise more people will find legit orders elsewhere in the meantime so less competition for the scalped goods.

The simple solution is people just stop buying them until the price is at RRP which will happen if nobody buys them.

Hopefully Nintendo are working to flood the market and make it a non issue.

In Theory: Can AMD Ryzen break the Intel CPU monopoly?

IneptPercy

@FMV-GAMER

Probably 8c 16t too, all depends on price, as it is my video/photo business has really taken off so will be 32gb or maybe even 64gb ram to go with it.

If I was only gaming I would probably stay with the 3570k longer.

Also got the rift + touch, so happy days here.

You will find the mobile apus easily hold there own against i3s of the same price, yes IPC is a little lower but it has more cores and a much more powerful GPU.

In my case it was a A10-9600p+8GB ram vs an i3-6100u+4GB ram (at 20 more).

In short I can fins benchmark which will support either but the overall thing is the 9600p strengths more than makeup for its short comings.

As with desktop at the top end AMD don't currently have an answer.

I have very good things to say about AMD they just haven't been good enough at the higher end for a while, as its in my house here is a list of processors in use.

Intel i5-3570k - gaming, video/photo editing
AMD A10-9600p - laptop, photo work on the move
AMD A8-7600 - HTPC - perfect for the job in an HTPC
AMD A8-3870k - Second desktop - backup for failure on main rig and used for lessor video photo/video jobs by second user.
AMD C50 - Netbook, ultra portable with upgraded 1366-768 screen.

Interestingly I will be upgrading the 3570k next year, of course until we know all the facts I can't pick a direction but it may end up an AMD only house here.

Please note I am not a fan of either AMD or intel but can say AMD APUs offer much better value for general computing hence the above and if they offer better value at the top end CPU market they have me there too.

Interesting times ahead.
