Now that's not true, from the late 90s until about 2001, Windows gaming was a priority for Microsoft and they made a decent push forward with DirectX, publishing titles like Age of Empires, Mechwarrior 4, Freelancer, Dungeon Siege, etc.
Once they rolled out the Xbox, that all stopped and it became a period of about 15 years of acting passive aggressive towards Windows gamers.
That's a good point, actually... those were some awesome titles. Such a shame they've forgotten their heritage
Floating point operation does not equate to gaming performance. It is what you do with it which matters. You sound like a console gamer...
I'm exclusively a PC gamer, I honestly wish the consoles (or rather exclusives) would just die. I just pick teraflops as one of the easier metrics to compare to. My point was saying they're 5 years old is only if you're aiming at a higher bracket, which is not where the majority of PC sales are.
I DID misread that and thought he was referring to the PS4 Pro, which is faster than what 2012 had to offer (unless it's crossfire / SLI).
Nvidia teraflops are not the same as AMD teraflops. Compare the reported teraflops of say, the GTX 1060 and the RX480, and then compare their gaming performance.
A GTX 680 would still trade blows with an RX480, which is faster than the PS4 Pro by some way. It's not just down to GPUs either, consoles have very weak CPUs and slow hard drives which really puts a bottleneck on game world streaming and is usually the reason why frame rates are often locked at 30.
Red Dead Redemption 2 would be popular if nobody wrote a single article about it, so why would anyone pay us? We write about it because the vast majority of our audience cares. As for there being no PC version - we're taking an educated guess that's backed up by solid rumours.
Under the 'Performance' header? That's The Signal from Tolva, a beautiful, sandbox-y, robot-y playground :)
I'd still say just don't report on it unless you have something to report. I mean as evidence goes, I'll see yours and raise you this:
Ha, yeah I remember that. Different game and circumstances though, and in this case you've got good journos and a reliable tipster all saying it's happening.
Given we report on rumours for other games if the source seems credible, at this point we wouldn't really be doing our jobs if we didn't do so for Destiny 2, especially as it'll probably be huge.
Anyway, shouldn't be long now until we know for sure. If it doesn't happen, come back here and mock me.
