Nope. The games would still sell for exactly the same price, creators would get more but they would very likely keep the prices the same. Why change them?
The first game was marketed as the best looking racer with flashy bullshots etc. It turned out to be such a disappointment. I'm worried about this one.
Maybe they've learned?
it's a major problem in PC gaming in general. most games can be picked up cheaper in physical form especially if you compare the prices to Steam. the problem is in the digital market place the big players see them self as having no real competition for their market, so there is no real competition.
so the problem here isn't on digital stay at an inflated price it does on just about every store front and platform, the problem is they chose not to release a physical copy of the game that could be distributed outside of their own store.
Or maybe they've got a lot of spare inventory to shift with the serious slow down in VR sales this year!
Think they're going to be in it for the long haul though, they can't have expected VR to have been a huge industry immediately. Triple-A game development alone can take five years, so just to get the best content was always going to take a while.
57C at idle is still 57C unless AMD have created a new temperature scale.
The rated temps came from the previous version of the Ryzen Master app which reported a 20degree offset on the 95W 'X' chips.
So that 57C idle is actually 37C according to AMD. The reporting is changing soon (now?) to take that into account.
? The 1600x is rated at 95 watts. (This is the heat you need to dissipate,or power,to be more precise.)
The 1800X is also stated as a 95 watt part. So its a guidence bracket, not an exact power figure.(my cooler for e.g. is labelled 95 watts)
At full load in this test the 1600x is at 64C, which is well acceptable for life span.
It is not clear if that is over clocked full load or stock clocks full load, but trust me when I say it will not be difficult keeping these processors in the required temps.
None of them function above ~ 4.1 gig what ever the temps anyway,so best leave off the last 0.1 gig and have sensible voltages and power usage.
