It really depends so much on the game. With dual 1080s I can pull 120fps on epic settings at 2880p in overwatch, whereas max settings in AC syndicate is only like 70fps at 1440p.

Right, I'm jacking up the resolution/supersampling to take full advantage of the cards. I don't really see much difference over 100fps with gsync so that's what I'm aiming for.

So the silicon lottery is definitely real....got a pair of gaming X 1080s and they do 2050 easy in situations where the FE could only do 1860.

It's weird though....I used to spend like $100-200 every summer. Now I spend $0. I can't be the only one who's spending on the sales has dropped so precipitously that it hasn't had a huge effect.

Steams down already of course, but in the brief instant that I saw the sale it looks like a resounding "meh".

That best of both worlds you're hoping for is g-sync. I think it's worth it, it's nice not to have to think about keeping the frame rate above some arbitrary number to avoid stuttering. The frame...

GTX 1080 announced!

I haven't used it, I have g-sync up to 144hz and I'm not really bothered by vsync lag at that refresh rate. My understanding is that because it's unqueued it's likely to cause some stuttering so I'm...

I dunno man, the vast majority of reputable review sites have the 1080 a solid 20-30% ahead and my own experience bears that out. The 1070 or a used 980 Ti are clearly a much better value, but...

Interesting. Presumably it's a 14nm SoC, Polaris is still based on GCN....so it's not out of the question that they went with a RX460 class Polaris GPU.

Man, I'm almost tempted to buy one. Did they ever manage to speed up the app launching, or is it still like 30 seconds to launch Netflix?

Yeah, I think it's a safe bet that you'll be able to plug a rift into an Xbox and it'll just work, but I wonder if they'll open it up to anyone else.
