Two To Four Feral Hogs Edition

Top Story

  • Nvidia's new graphics cards are two to four times faster than the previous generation - if you are using ray tracing and upscaling.  (PC Magazine)

    If you're not using ray tracing and upscaling, they're not.

    Except somehow in the case of Microsoft Flight Simulator, where they are - and somehow the RTX 4080 is the same speed as the much more expensive RTX 4090.


  • Nvidia also explained why the new cards are so much more expensive than the previous generation: Because.  (PC Magazine)


  • And to gamers who are saying that the 4080 is really just a renamed 4070 to justify the high pricing, Nvidia had this response: Nuh-uh.  (PC Magazine)

    Nvidia is handing a golden opportunity to AMD and Intel here.  Intel simply isn't in a position to take advantage of it, but AMD might be.

    We'll see what they have up their sleeves on November 3.

1 I figure the PRC is desperate, producing propaganda for domestic consumption, and projecting. 

I am persuaded that 5G is probably not good.

A little of each.  A lot of each, really.

And, of course, the NSA might well have penetrated China's communications networks, assuming there are still some competent people working there.

3 Gamers Nexus has a review of your case, the Hyte Y60, although it's a few months old: "There are several potential pitfalls or shortcomings in the case for specific builds, but as long as you choose the right parts to synergize with it and build in the correct order, the Hyte Y60 makes for an interesting and unique case. Build quality was overall excellent, with shortcomings mostly in filters, airflow, and build order (or ease of installation). Even with those negatives, the Y60 is one of the best ATX cases we've reviewed lately."
What this mainly boils down to is "prefer AIO cooling for your video card, especially if it's fatter than 2 slots" and "even then it doesn't have the greatest thermals, but it won't get obnoxiously hot."

4 Yes, I checked that review before I plunked down my money.  Even the regular version isn't cheap, and the Hololive limited edition cost about 50% more than that.

5 Well, looks like my case is here in New House City.  At the depot.  And their website is broken so I can't request a redelivery.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
