  Philips 328P8K 8K Monitor
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 09-05-2017, 07:08 AM - Forum: Video - No Replies


Quote:TPV intends to ship its Philips 328P8K sometimes in Q1 or Q2 next year, but the company has not made any decisions regarding the final timeframe. High-end products require a lot of tweaking, so do not expect TPV to rush the 8K monitor to the market. As for pricing of the Philips 328P8K, it is hard to make guesses without knowing market situation, availability of the panels and competition. For example, Dell has cut the price of its UltraSharp UP3218K by 22% since the launch in late March to $3,899 despite the lack of any rivals. In any case, since the Philips 328P8K is aimed primarily at professionals, do not expect it to be affordable from a consumer point of view.

It's 169mm long, so it's small enough even for SickBeast.

  A Reason To Not Use CLCs
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 09-01-2017, 08:11 AM - Forum: General Hardware - Replies (1)

Paul's Hardware's H100i v2 had its pump die on him during a comparison test on his Threadripper 1920X. The CPU hit thermal junction max and shut down. Skip to time index 11:38 for the first signs that something is wrong, and that he is avoiding CLCs in his production machines and is less likely to recommend them to others.

  Shield 2 Prototype Found
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 08-29-2017, 09:25 PM - Forum: Gaming - No Replies


Quote:While there had been some signs over the past few years that NVIDIA was working on a follow-up, the company never actually publicly launched a second-gen handheld. But that didn’t stop one person from purchasing one from a pawn shop recently.

Redditor FwrigginRwootbeer says the handheld was found in a pawn shop in Canada. Since NVIDIA never actually sold these tablets, it was most likely a prototype designed for developers.

FwrigginRwootbeer traded in a first-gen Shield Portable to help pay for this model, not realizing it was unreleased (and potentially buggy). But while there are only minor changes to the physical design of the gaming handheld, it does seem to have a more more powerful specs than the first-gen model, including:
  • 1.91 GHz ARM Cortex-A57 quad-core processor (probably NVIDIA Tegra X1)
  • 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage
  • 5.9 inch, 1440 x 810 pixel display
The original Shield handhold, by comparison, had an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display.

  AOC 0.5ms Response Time Monitor
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 08-25-2017, 02:09 AM - Forum: Video - No Replies


Quote:There’s one glaring omission from the screen details above, and that’s the screen type they are using. The astute among you will have already realised that there’s not a popsicle's chance in hell this is going to be a VA or IPS panel with response times that low - it has to be a TN. Urgh.

Except, apparently, not. Urgh.

“I saw this TN panel, they were doing a demonstration in Taipei,” Clemente says, “and the picture quality is probably better than IPS. It’s not quantum dot, you can’t put that on TN, but the quality was really reminiscent of quantum dot. The market has never seen a TN panel with this colour quality. Viewing angles are TN viewing angles, but you don’t care about that.”

If they’re going to be able to qualify the AG273QCX as a HDR screen, then it absolutely has to be the most colourful TN panel ever, and that’s pretty exciting. It’s not going to have the same eye-searing luminance as its G-Sync HDR cousin, but FreeSync 2’s demands are much more relaxed than Nvidia’s.

  Sonos Threatens To End Product Functionality If Users Don't Accept New Privacy Policy
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 08-23-2017, 08:42 AM - Forum: Software & Programming - Replies (2)


Quote:Sonos has confirmed that existing customers will not be given an option to opt out of its new privacy policy, leaving customers with sound systems that may eventually "cease to function".

It comes as the home sound system maker prepares to begin collecting audio settings, error data, and other account data before the launch of its smart speaker integration in the near future.
More security news

A spokesperson for the home sound system maker told ZDNet that, "if a customer chooses not to acknowledge the privacy statement, the customer will not be able to update the software on their Sonos system, and over time the functionality of the product will decrease."

"The customer can choose to acknowledge the policy, or can accept that over time their product may cease to function," the spokesperson said.

News of the changes was announced to customers in an email last week.

  Windows Store Is A Haven For Media Piracy Apps

This is how low the Windows Store has fallen. Gaben must be feeling really foolish for thinking this store was ever a threat to anything.

  Microsoft Working On Steam/Windows Store Crossplay On Rise Of Nations
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 08-19-2017, 08:19 AM - Forum: Gaming - No Replies

Wow. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this crossplay between Steam and another similar service is a first for PC gaming, period.

Quote:Rise of Nations: Extended Edition arrived on the Steam store back in 2014, bringing a remastered version of 2003's critically acclaimed real-time strategy title, Rise of Nations. Today, Microsoft announced that the game is now on its way to another platform, this being the Windows Store.

However, unlike previous games that have arrived for both the Windows Store and Steam, Rise of Nations: Extended Edition will allow players from both platforms to play together in multiplayer. While games with Xbox Play Anywhere functionality have allowed cross-play between Windows 10 and Xbox One users, adding Steam users into the mix is a first for the company.
