personally i would have the same dilema if i were you, even with the extra money to "burn". it all comes down to how deep are your pockets :p

1080ti prices here are so high you can buy a mid-level motorcycle. Bitcoin mining is now a fever here, helps gfx cards get more expensive.

 

Lucky to have a HP Probook with a i3 2.4ghz and 4gb of ram. I have no idea what onboard gfx it has but I can play san andreas that is enough for me.

Old news but it sounds intriguing. I would love to see more competition and honestly I'm more willing to switch to Intel than AMD if their stuff ends up being better than NVIDIA's.

Maybe this time something will actually come out of this. Anyone remembers Larabee?

Is buying a new MSI laptop an wise thing? I have a chance to buy one at the end of this month but some reviews mention horrible battery life months after first use, But the model I am looking at doesnt seem to have a replaceable battery.

 

Am I being paranoid or could it be those reviewers never let it fully charge their first time using it?

How do you not half-ass review of a dedicated piece of hardware with no drivers? The video is basically a plea for anyone who has the required software to send it in, and without making a video, it'd be impossible to ask for that help. Yes, if somebody responds, it'll be a two-parter. Otherwise, that's all there is.

The first thing I'd do would be dig out a 775/1366 rig,from around the time Larrabee was developed. Could be anything from PCIE compatibility, UEFI vs Legacy bios, maybe even the cards DVI output not being able to support 4k/newer displays. Also being that Larrabee was meant to be a coprocessor and not strictly a dedicated video output he could've tried with iGPU/a dedicated card in slot one and Larrabee in a different slot. Instead we get 11 minutes of talking and 3 minutes of nothing. Linus mentions about compatibility with newer machines, PCIE, motherboards etc but doesn't particularly do anything about it. Then again there also could be a reason the card was destined for the e-waste pile.

 

At least he didn't drop it.

I have a buddy at work who said he could build me a top of the line gaming pc for around 1000$, would it be worth it over buying consoles everytime they come out?
PS: he's also a our IT technician, so he knows what he's doing.

If you want a top of the line gaming PC, you need $1000 for the graphics card alone so even if he works in IT I think he's talking trash on this one. There's no way for us to know if getting a PC over consoles is worth it for you. Personally I would always say yes considering how much you can do on a PC that you can't on consoles and paying for online multiplayer is BS. Consoles are cheaper but what you gain is pretty much simplicity and nothing else.

maybe for a 4k card, but a "good" graphics card is about 300-400 dollar's
He has a business in building pc's, so he wouldn't rip me off. Plus I know that people have stated that you can build a pc that can run almost anything for under 1000.

I think the issue is the use of the phrase "top of the line". A decent gaming system (minus monitor and peripherals) can be had for $1k, but a "top of the line" system is about four times that.

Exactly what sivis said Top Of The Line can be subjective and also in the mind of the beholder and doesn't always mean the same to everybody BUT it usually tends to mean there is nothing else out there on the market that you can buy right now that can one up it.

 

While you're not gonna get a mind blowing 4k system for $1,000 but you are going to get a system that will play just about every game on ultra settings with the highest FPS with no lagging or lacency which we all know is important.m

 

I myself am in the process of building my own rig and my list of parts comes to around $980 but that doesn't included a Monitor (Because I don't need one) or "Gaming Keyboard" (Again Because I Don't Need One)

Anybody know what the differences are in these? (Graphic settings in my FSX game) and which one is best? 

 

The default was Trilinear
