  1. 290W is a lot compared to the alternative products, but when the 11700k is pulling that much (using AVX-512) it is destroying everything else in performance, so that's actually not bad. Of course, the 104 degrees Celsius peak (again, using AVX-512) on an expensive air cooler is still horrifying. 225W is what they recorded under more normal heavy loads that use AVX2, which is significantly more common than the irrelevant (for now) AVX-512. That is in line with other 8-core APUs on the same node like the 10700k and 9900k.
  2. Anandtech posted an early review of the Rocket Lake 8-core 11700k: https://www.anandtech.com/show/16535/intel-core-i7-11700k-review-blasting-off-with-rocket-lake Improvements in most applications, but less than Intel claimed and gaming performance is disappointing. Both the 10700k and 9900k are a little faster in that aspect. And obviously, the 5800X is faster. Hopefully the final reviews are better.
  3. The RX 6800 XT looks like a very good deal for its price got to give AMD that. Honestly can't think of a single game that I'm interested in that would actually benefit from it though, besides maybe Cyberpunk? I'm not a fan of CDPR's games to this date, so even that game I'm unsure about. Anyways this architecture looks promising for AMD's laptop APUs, would be nice to have something that can just play RPGs and maybe the occasional weird indie game on my laptop instead of having to use a separate desktop PC. I wonder if Rembrandt will have any of this "infinity" cache. 32 MiB maybe would be eno
  4. Too much consolidation happening. Zenimax may have been a stereotypically bad publisher lately, but it wasn't too late to mend their ways. However unlikely that may have been. Sigh
  5. First reviews for Wasteland 3 are in and the reviews are good so far; The main negative seems to be technical issues. I'm burning out on post nuclear war I think, but the alternative is Baldur's Gate 3 (which I may play anyways, don't know) and I'm starving for a good "classic" RPG. Guess it is time for my cheap ass to renew that Gamepass subscription or whatever
  6. The game came out in October of last year on PC, so I'm guessing that is when we can expect it on Steam. IIRC the exclusivity was for one year to Epic Games Store.
  7. Sony now claims that the overwhelming majority of its PS4 library will work on the PS5, and the top 100 was just a snapshot or whatever into what would work in boost mode according to their testing over some hundreds of games (which seems to be less testing than Microsoft still which claimed to have done more than 100,000 hours of testing recently). They also have PS4 and PS4 Pro legacy modes, maybe those will require less work.
  8. The SSD speed is crazy too. Much faster than the Xbox SSD or even anything on the market supposedly. And you'll be able to use (PS5 certified) m.2 drives instead of Microsoft's proprietary format. I really like the low latency emphasis with the Xbox though. I think that should be something the PS5 can imitate but we'll see.
  9. Fallout had more content? No way. Fallout 1 was like 15, maybe 20 hours long.
  10. Oh god, I forgot about the gigantic Tali threads. Those were really disturbing. Usually it was a tiny subset of the forum posting but they were EXTREMELY active. I think the other romantic interests had those embarassing threads too but not as extreme.
  11. That's odd. Do you have a flaw that makes you "petrified" or something in less open places? Not really sure what else would cause that
  12. I wouldn't say it killed it for me, but... I wasn't expecting anything and was still disappointed. I'm sure it will be an okay RPG but it looks nothing like 1 or 2. Oh well, not much of a fan of BG these days anyways.
  13. Who cares about some hypothetical ceiling? The game is very profitable despite not being on Steam. Also if that 15M ceiling is based on Fallout 4, I would rather they not chase that dumpster fire.
  14. If we are going to get anything space fantasy related from Disney I would rather get an RPG set in the Guardians of the Galaxy. The Outer Worlds 2 first though.
  15. Ryzen 4000 series laptops look really nice. 8 cores, 16 threads for the 4800 series. LPDDR4x. 6 cores and 12 threads for the 4600 series. I'm not upgrading at least until DDR5 lands but I wish I had just waited a few more months to get a new laptop... Also Videocardz is saying the 3990X is 'only' 3950 USD!
