After the golden 90s, the mid 2000s were certainly not a great time to be playing on PC. A lot of console exclusive titles (including Epic Games and them blaming piracy for their abandonment of the PC), crappy Omegle ports, Microsoft's greatly beloved Games for Windows Live service, including trying to get PC players to pay for online and anti-piracy measures like SecuROM.

Steam continued to provide free multiplayer throughout the entire time and at some point publishers started to realize that there is actually money to be made on PC and started to release their titles on it. Pretty much all of them were or are limited to being released on Steam because there was no alternative back then.

The results show quite a bit of variation, as in synthetic benchmarks, all RTX GPUs show clear gains over their GTX predecessors, with the RTX 2060 offering the biggest performance jump (>40% on average) ending up close to or exceeding a GTX 1070 (non-Max Q). Nonetheless, it does not offer enough power for raytracing at decent FPS.

In real world gaming, the gains are less impressive at lower resolutions, which could be due to a CPU bottleneck (seems unlikely with an i7 8750H being used) or throttling issues (not tested). Obviously, these results depend largely on how well the laptop has been designed and how well all components can be cooled in a given chassis (check performance Gigabyte Aero X9).

Gaming / Thank you Epic Games Store

Due to Steam's regional pricing, the game Metro Exodus was $20 for me. Now as the game is being moved from Steam to Epic Games Store, it will cost me $50. Living in a 3rd world country its not easy for me to pay that a large amount of money for a game. I don't generally pre-order games but I can't even do that as "Later today, sales of Metro Exodus will be discontinued on Steam" and its not possible for me to make the purchase in the given time frame.

Seemingly randomly, about one time in three that I search for something on Google then try to click on one of the resulting links, I get directed to a completely different page than the one shown on Google. Actually, it's not just PutLocker  when I click on the links - it's when I click on any part of the page with the Google search results. If you carefully observe the mouse cursor, it doesn't actually change when I hover over a link. It's like there's an invisible layer between the mouse cursor and the search results that the computer can see but I can't, and that's the only thing I can click on.

Gaming / Are there consequences for providing inaccurate benchmarks ?

This review is using abhorrently inacurate data and I was wondering if these things can Omegle have backlash for the reviewers. It shows the 2060 beating the 2080ti in something for starters. Aside from a bunch of other obvious red flags.

Basically I'm just asking if I downloaded the pdf from that Apple receipt pishing scam and clicked the link but left before it had time to load the page on my phone, am I safe? I know it was stupid lol but I already did a virus scan, cleared my browser history and cookies and deleted the email and my photos are backed up in Google photos so I think I'm good, I would just like some confirmation to put my mind at ease lol

I want to learn all there is to learn about computers Yify Omegle (how to build them, what's inside them, how they work, how to modify them, etc.). I recently became a CS major and I wanna learn about the actual computers I'm using too. I hear people say things about cores and processors and Raspberry Pi and a bunch of other stuff like that and it all flies over my head. Where can I start if I want to learn?

Gaming / What would you say were the most important PC games ever made?
« on: January 26, 2019, 02:57:35 pm »
By important I mean games that changed the industry forever, introduced completely 1337x KissAsian MangaStream new and exciting mechanics, had plots extremely complex. I think we can all agree that Half Life 2 was revolutionary, but what are some others?

Gaming / Should I buy a gaming pc?

I’m currently a console player but I’m considering buying a gaming pc, I dream about having a sick set up and using mouse and keyboard instead of controller I think would be really fun and a new challenge. Omegle

Are there any more pros I should know about when you have a nice gaming pc/set up? Also are there any cons?

Computers - Technology / Graphics Card Issues
« on: January 25, 2019, 04:21:00 pm »
I had a friend of mine give me a Thinkcentre m81 a few months back. We put a bunch of new parts in and at this point it has 10 GB ram and a 3.1ghz i3 8100 in it. I bought a Nvidia GTX 1050 a couple weeks before Christmas and I installed it. It worked fine, I then invested in the best processor my device could handle which was a i7 2600. This is where the issue started. After installing the new processor my graphics card stopped producing video. On board video still worked, but the graphics card produced no display. I have tried many different things but I simply dont know what to do. The card worked fine until I installed the i7 and then it stopped. I switched back to the old i3 and reinstalled windows 7, but still nothing. Any tips?

General Discussion / Over-the-Top TV Viewing Up 114% in 1Q, Conviva Says

"Internet-delivered video grew by 114%", but that  Lorem Ipsum Temp Mail 10 Minute Mail doesn't mean we are consuming more or less TV programming, just far more through internet streams from the same time period last year.
