A good precaution, however, when you take into account how much compute hardware is in Vega 64 vs 1080ti... along with new features that would likely increase performance...


Well, perhaps you should have a look at the professional software results before you write off Vega as a 'weakling' vs 1080ti:

https://techgage.com/article/a-look-at-amds-radeon-rx-vega-64-workstation-compute-performance/7/


Also, Vega was radically overvolted by AMD to increase yields which greatly increased power draw.

When the GPU is undervolted on stock clocks, Vega draws much less power (in line with nvidia's GPU's) and performance often goes up since thermal throttling is removed which allows Vega to reach and maintain its boost clocks.


Nvidia is essentially running on optimized voltages out the box... AMD does not.

Also, you cannot undervolt nvidia's GPU's without underclocking them as well since the voltages and clocks are tied.


So, undervolting Vega 56 and 64 simply reduces the amount of power delivered to the GPU on stock clocks... and AMD couldn't do this out the door due to having lower yields and no auto voltage tuning.


There's that, along with the fact that the GLOFO manuf. process AMD uses is more suited for lower clock speeds than higher ones.

Personally, I dont pay for mods, and thats coming from someone who makes mods. Plus, I've never liked running around in Fall out with Power Armor on. its to clunky and slows you down. I've always preferred looking like a soldier with minimal gear on.

LOL. greatest game in his own mind. 40 dollars is way over priced for a game thats been in development for 20 years. This dev is a lunatic!

So, does this mod allow you to play the regular game with friends? or is this more PVP crap?

yeah, the should learn from CD Projekt RED, DRM is nothing but a hassle to the non pirate consumer

Well, that not entirely true. MMOs cant be cracked. I have a feeling most games in the future will end up being server based.


But that will be the death of games for many if that happens. Because EA is notorious for shutting down a server, and imagine trying to play one of your favorite games years from now when a servers been shut down. That will not fly with most users.

MMOs can't be cracked? Owners of private WoW servers beg to differ.

Can someone explain just how this will work for games on the pc? Will you be able to actually play these games on your pc wit ha keyboard and mouse? Or is this some kind of odd thing that does some other weird stuff?Reply

I can't stand the guy, but when you have over 50 million people as your audience, you get to make the big choices.

Marvel Heroes 2015 review snippet Is Marvel Heroes 2015 grindy?
Very grindy, all you do is run Cosmic Mid Town, ICP or High Town and this is only to get upgraded gear to drop or get your Omegas maxed out. Theres really nothing else to do. Hardly no new content ever comes out and when it does its minimal at best.
