Thanks looz nice find.

It could still be tied to NBD claim you will find the folders in the .old folder. But the point is that your average user will not have a clue where to look and how to fix this. Nor are they expected to. MS need to make the fix.

Looks nice, to bad though that from my experience the board will be practically useless after 12 months leaving you dealing with the shockingly poor customer services.

MSI's customer services isn't that good either but touch wood only ever had to deal with them once, in the last 10 years compared to Asus which has been every 12 months or so with multiple boards bought for myself or people who want, a specific motherboard no matter how much I try to convince to them look elsewhere.

Oh you don't know bad customer service. In my country customer service is provided by the seller. They usually aren't official distributors for products, and probably get their stock under the counter somewhere. They are also obligated by law only to inform you within 2 weeks what is the current state of your RMAed part. Replacement, or repair does not have limit. I waited for HDD replacement almost 2 months. And what is covered by warranty is changing daily. So basically they replace your part if they feel like it.

The master of controversy, HARDOCP, has released a full review of the MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z (performs up to 19% faster than an aftermarket GTX 1080).

The interesting bit is his update post at the bottom of the conclusion.

He's been asked to take it down of course, but refuses to. Because he didn't sign any NDA's, he feels he's covered and sourced the card by other means.

Apparently AMD has implemented a new 'gaming mode' in the TR2 WX processors called Dynamic Local Mode. They're quoting up to 47% performance gains in certain games. From the way I understand it, by offloading application threads that are most demanding to the CPU cores that have direct access to system DRAM, they can improve performance in applications that benefit from multithreading. However only the WX processors have the ability to choose between accessing memory directly or from the Infinity Fabric.

From Nvidia's perspective, they do not know that MSI didn't supply Hard OCP. Hard OCP's clarification will help in this regard, but they somehow got access to pre-release drivers, which means that somebody messed up somewhere.

What comes to mind is the Intel Kaby Lake series, where reviews released months in advance from multiple outlets. In that case, plenty of early reviews redacted information so that they did not implicate any motherboard makers. There are ways of releasing early reviews without burning bridges with any AIB partners or PC reps, assuming that you got access to hardware without an NDA.

Regardless, the question Nvidia will be asking themselves is how HardOCP got a driver to run the graphics card. It's not like pre-release drivers are just sitting around.

If he didn't sign the NDA Nvidia can't touch him legally. But they have other means to make your life living hell. They will rip the souls of those who sourced the GPU.

The currently available public driver only supports the 2080 and 2080 Ti. You need to get an early driver from Nvidia or an AIB partner to get an RTX 2070 to work before launch.

OK that explains it. Tom and others got lower temps because it was being limited (4 phase). Other reviewers used more macho boards, temps were insane.

Its quite possible that you will get more annoyed by them. It all depends if your 24v connector lines up with the motherboard tray cut outs where you feed the cable through.

On the C700P it was horrible. I had to route the cables much further away to allow for the cable stiffness not to twist the motherboard itself.

As cool as it is, Unity is often overlooked compared to UE4 because it's code is based on C# which is not the preferred game development language(C++). Although since C# has integration with MS Azure(C# was created by MS), I could see if being more useful for the networking side of things.

I wouldn't say rushed beta launch. It took nearly 3 years to get to market
It's probably the combination of making a die size that's at the limits of current fabrication technology. Maximizing every square mm with a wide variety of hardware on board. It could also be yields aren't that great for the first batch and Nvidia deemed them good enough but they ended up not being good enough
Or it could just be memory issues which is my 2nd choice if it's not fabs fault. GDDR6 I could see being rushed because it went straight to retail products with little to no time between volume production to release

I can imagine that it has a slight connection to the 2080s, that were shipped with an A-BIOS and A-GPU instead of the regular one, which leads to the ability to flash nvidia's founders edition BIOS onto those cards, increasing the TDP limit, which probably wasn't intended. Now, I haven't read through your article so I don't know any specifics, I just wanted to throw this in, since a buddy just sent me this.

MSI is plunging new depths with falsely reporting BIOS settings. Rest of the pack playing fair game. 108 real BCLK, and in BIOS reported 100. And i thought they have outdone themselves, when they were pushing 1.45V SA voltages, and just plainly disabled voltage readouts.

TBH we knew the performance impact long before launch. That was already worked out and solved, so expecting any more or less was a bit silly. We also knew it was going to be a step back to 1080p, too, even on the Ti.

Ryzen 2000G parts were 14nm Zen original parts that launched almost a year later than the original Ryzen parts (Remember, Ryzen G launched this year). I don't think there's much doubt that Ryzen 3000G will be 12nm Zen+ given the leaked clock speeds, configurations & time frame. Zen 2 APUs are likely going to come alongside or shortly after Navi.

Well, it just says "out of stock" now. TBH, eteknix is on my mental "don't trust this source" list.

As it says in their original article, "Although the actual product page is still up, once you click on the “Shop All” button, it will return with zero results". So the page was never down?

I don't think Fallout76's price drop indicates anything about sales what so ever, pretty much every Bethesda game regardless of franchise has a similar price drop around this time after launch. Not that I consider going from ~£50 to ~£30 a price drop, if you're buying games at £40+ you must know you're paying way above the odds and can probably get it cheaper by looking around abit within a week or two after most PC launches in general. Personally I've never paid more than £40 for a single game, even then it has to be something quite special as to be paying that much for digital nowadays means it essentially has to be a pre-order.

I actually think its the new marketing model. Nvidia style.. mark it up way over valued price. Let the early adopters, and pre-order fanatics come in to get you your 100%+ profit margins. Then when it starts to settle, drop value to its actual cost and let the rest scramble for what they think is a good deal.

They did the same for Tombraider and quite a few others. It's smart and it fools us. I also think comparing physical sales is old news.

That's how it works but it's far from a new system, just the modern age of internet purchases, pre-orders & social media fueled FOMO makes it more lucrative than ever.

Every AAA game I've seen over the last half decade or so has used this model, they launch at £50 or so then a week or two later is on a 33% sale at its more realistic price of ~£34 (What I still expect games to launch at). EA games generally do it without fail, I've bought pretty much every BF game within 3 weeks of launch at £30 or less via Origin in their winter sales despite the games launching at £50+.

Companies have realised some people will pay a lot for early access. Heck, some people earn a lot from getting early access (YouTubers and the like). This model essentially taxes those people who will benefit most from getting the game early(Whether those gains are in the form of enjoyment, early leveling & map learning, or other things) as generally the only people who pay that full price are pre-orderers and most games now offer early access to them for the privilege.

Tonight I got an email from the humble store, saying that due to a bug, someone tried various email addresses to see if they have an active Humble Monthly subscription etc and mine was supposedly used. Sensitive information like passwords have not been stolen, as they claim. They also told me to activate two factor authentication, something i didn't even know Humble had available.


Here's the complete text:
Hello,


Last week, we discovered someone using a bug in our code to access limited non-personal information about Humble Bundle accounts. The bug did not expose email addresses, but the person exploited it by testing a list of email addresses to see if they matched a Humble Bundle account. Your email address was one of the matches.


Sensitive information such as your name, billing address, password, and payment information was NOT exposed. The only information they could have accesses is you Humble Monthly subscription status. More specifically, they might know if your subscription is active, inactive, or paused; when your plan expires; and if you've received any referral bonuses.


Even though the information revealed is very limited, we take customer trust very seriously and wanted to promptly disclose this to you. We want to make sure you are able to protect yourself should someone use the information gathered to pose as Humble Bundle.


As a reminder, here are some tips to keep your account private and safe:


Don't share your password, personal details, or payment information with anyone. We will NEVER ask for information like that.
Be careful of emails with links to unfamiliar sites. If you receive a suspicious email related to Humble Bundle, please contact us via our support website so that we can investigate further and warn others.
Enable 2-Step Verification (2SV) so that even if someone gets your password, they won't be able to access your account. You can enable 2SV by following these instructions [Link to settings].

We sincerely apologize for this mistake. We will work even harder to ensure your privacy and safety in the futures.


Jeffrey Rosen, CEO, Humble Bundle

Presumably for them to do it this way round they're going to keep the Titan's driver stack a little more prosumer focussed than gamer. Can't see anyone picking this up for the ~5% increase in core count or <10% in memory/+bandwidth unless they've thrown in some other goodies from the Quadro stack (That or it's an unashamed halo card that they'll produce in tiny numbers mostly for reviewers).

It actually depresses me that this is the AAA game industry in a nutshell.

It's the exact reason why I steer well clear of any western AAA game these days. Looking back at my recent purchases, I've not bought a single EA, Bethesda, Ubisoft, or Activision game for at least 5 years and I genuinely don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. I'd rather spend my money on smaller devs who make great games and put their passion into it as an art form.

30 years ago it was a different story with fantastic games coming out nearly every week.

The focus was on actual gameplay and originality but not on graphics which were very poor.

Now days it is all about graphics but the gameplay and originality are very poor indeed.

What is strange are the only GPUs that would really benefit at the moment from PCI-E 4.0 are the top end NVidia ones.


Maybe AMD have some fast GPUs coming out in 2019.

tgrech
03-12-18, 08:46 AM
The only GPU that can actually use PCIe4.0 at the moment is Vega 7nm, and presumably Navi will be the first consumer GPU to use it. But there's much more important reasons for AMD to adopt PCIe4.0 on their motherboards than top-end GPU performance. It ushers in a sea of improvements to efficiency and power consumption, while that doubling of the bandwidth per link is critical to reducing power consumption, price & space in laptops(Devices that used to use x8 or x4 can now use x4 or x2, fewer active links = lower consumption). It also means SSDs, network cards ect suck up less of the spare bandwidth, while allowing 200Gb Ethernet cards and similar technologies reliant on PCIe4.0 x16 to come to market.

Chances are the first practical use of PCIe4.0 GPU wise will be for MXM based GPUs(Probably Navi) that are physically limited to a x8 link but nowadays often feature chips roughly equivalent to their full fledged desktop counterparts at the top end.

Of course, besides the fact people like forward compatibility and all of that(I still have systems using PCIe2.0 that are more than capable in most aspects, it's good to have some wiggle room).

*Rumour from a site I don't especially trust*


Ryzen 3000 series of CPUs could come with up to 16 cores. AMD are apparently trying to decide whether it's the best route, but 12 cores seems to be their target minimum for the upgrade.

Computex 2019 will be the release date.

USB 3.2 will be supported

PCI-e 4.0 confirmed

10-15% IPC increase across the board confirmed

AMD also supposedly trying to ready a GPU launch for the same date

This source from AMD also says that Intel don't know how to respond to Zen, but that Comet Lake S does exist and will be targeting 10 cores.

Clock speeds, motherboards, core counts, these are all still undecided... apparently.


Again, totally an unsubstantiated rumour in my eyes coming from the source, but interesting enough to post.


But what's almost equally interesting (or satisfying) is how this article reminded me of when the head of Intel's client computing and IoT group said this late 2016 just before Zen was released:

While Intel still hasn’t released many details yet on 10 nm, Murthy did say that 10 nm would substantially enhance performance along multiple axes. There will be better power efficiency for thin and light notebooks, which we think was the primary benefit of a 14 nm process defined during a period where the company was under siege from other form factors. But there will be a significant focus also on higher performance microprocessors for desktops and servers, both from higher instructions per clock but also in other key metrics. Our faith in 10 nm raising the bar for enthusiast PCs is why we see the threat presented by AMD’s Zen as being fairly manageable, with only short term disruption in 2017.

It was mainly thin and light notebook that benefited from the 14nm process.

The only thing that will make me upgrade over my AE-5 is if they reduce the latency delay for line in. Currently my guitar has about 20ms delay from plucking a string, to the processing and output audio. So when it comes to playing fast, 20ms is alot to throw you out of sync and distract you.

Onboard audio is much less than that so its almost not noticed. Audio quality is limited to my speakers so I don't see AE 9 bringing a vast improvement. Playing a guitar through headphones is a waste as the sound is meant to be heard in a large environment :)

Fix the latency and I am sold! :)

Reminds me of this poor newbie on OCN a few years ago that got absolutely destroyed for suggesting his GTX 970 was only using 3.5GB of accessible VRAM in a few games he was testing.

Do we really believe that he had these benchmark results just sitting there from before each DRM removal patch? That's convenient. How old were these legacy tests? Could other factors have affected his results, Windows updates perhaps?

Bulletstorm: Full Clip lost its Denuvo in 2017, so he sat on those results for a year? Life is strange also lots its DRM in 2017. Moto Racer 4 also lost its Denuvo in February 2018.

I don't see how he legitimately benchmarked these games. There is also the final test, which also looks bogus as his non-denuvo test doesn't even show his results, he just typed them and added them into the video. That's a little dodgy.

Perhaps this merits a little investigation of my own... some games have DRM on some platforms and no DRM on others. Perhaps there is testing to be done there.

It wouldn't take much to test his claims. Just bench a single one of those games, and see if you get the same %. That would then back up the rest of the claims.

But I don't doubt it myself. Like I said, Denuvo is continually asking the game if it's real. Many times hackers thought they had got it all out but had not.

I do see value in testing these claims, though I will need to do some more research to see what can be done right now to test this properly.

There is a lot of confirmation bias when reading these results. They are easy to believe because they are exactly what a lot of people want to hear. IMHO Overlord needed to be much clearer when discussing his testing methodology.

It wouldn't take much to test his claims. Just bench a single one of those games, and see if you get the same %. That would then back up the rest of the claims.

But I don't doubt it myself. Like I said, Denuvo is continually asking the game if it's real. Many times hackers thought they had got it all out but had not.

I try to run nothing under my games now.


You'd need two identical versions/updates of the same game in both Denuvo and non-Denuvo versions though. I think there have been some games that had co-existing non-DRM versions on platforms like GoG alongside Denuvo enabled Steam versions but I'm not too sure, must be quite rare. The only other alternative would be if Denuvo got patched out the game without any meaningful patches to the rest of the game simultaneously, and you compared two versions directly before & after.

[EDIT- Alternatively it could be cracked vs non-cracked versions of Denuvo enabled games, not all cracks will remove Denuvo fully as many earlier ones only bypassed or tricked the Denuvo systems, but many more recent cracks have existed specifically to remove limitations in CPU support and the like caused by Denuvo).

Though, given the techniques & technology Denuvo is based on, at least a small performance impact is expected, with many of its earlier derivatives having game-impacting performance, and while Denuvo might have made strides in reducing the impact it's not really possible to wipe them out with such active protection. (Also worth noting developers themselves have pointed the finger at Denuvo for certain specific performance issues in the past).

Yup, there has to be at least one. Apparently there is only one game that had it 100% removed without it being removed by the devs who coded it, and that's Deus Ex. All of the others (apparently) still had it in the cracked versions and it was still running.

Reminds me of this poor newbie on OCN a few years ago that got absolutely destroyed for suggesting his GTX 970 was only using 3.5GB of accessible VRAM in a few games he was testing. All the snobbish regulars torn the guy apart for having such a crazy idea. Two weeks later and the Internet was swarming with debates about how terrible Nvidia were for what they had done. Then Pascal came out and everyone gave them money again.

I remember complaining about how Crossfire was jerky and all I was met with was brick walls such as "well it works fine for me, must be your setup" and ETC. I carried that grudge for about three years before PCPER outed AMD and the game was up.

But yeah, you ask some one about Crossfire before that day? they would all tell you that you were doing something wrong. It's truly amazing. Even when the info did come out at first people were just totally in denial. Once it sunk in? that is the method used to measure every game's performance metrics.

I think that might be more an issue with the communities you asked, PCper's dives into frame timings only came in 2013 iirc, but microstutter & issues with AFR (SLI/CFX) have been well documented for around a decade at this point, you can find many articles from 2008 clearly analysing & demonstrating those issues for multi-GPU setups, and they were known as a limitation of the technology from its inception, which is why alternatives were attempted first (Split screen rendering and the like).

I think we need to separate DRM from Anti-tamper. Denuvo in itself if not DRM, it just protects the other forms of DRM (like Steamworks) to prevent it from being bypassed.

Some DRM is a one time check, or, in cases like Denuvo's anti-tamper tech, can call in every once in a while. Like many things, DRM can be implemented in a number of ways.

Now, this topic either needs a dedicated thread or needs to end. This is quick news after all.

With respect, I'm sure many of us here have developed commercial software, and I'm sure many of us here have had to use protection systems at the request of contractors/employers, but appeals to authority don't really work when none of us know what qualifications or experience whoever did the testing has either.

Denuvo, at least pre-v4, certainly did do a check on boot to ensure the ID of your hardware matched the ID of your software, but the pure digital rights management checking element is only a small part of Denuvo and the anti-tamper system is the key portion that differentiates it from other pure-DRM systems.

Going from quotes of the people who've actually cracked Denuvo, its anti-tamper system includes large amounts of obfuscation, including using the very traditional method of executable compression, which has always had, and still does have, an inherent performance penalty.

People just don't want to hear it though, fella. It's almost like they don't have eyes and ears of their own ffs.

I remember once a time where I worked for a loudspeaker company. They were designing a new set of speakers, and asked us builders to go have a listen. It was the sort of job you did because you loved it, and nothing in between. Any way, about ten people go in and say "Oh they sound amazing !" etc. I go in? jesus. My ears are about as critical as my eyes tbh. I tore the whole sound profile apart. I even got a bit carried away (as I do). I was expecting them to fire me, but they said I was the only person who went in that room that day that heard what I did and told the truth :D

They told me (secretly) that they were miles from being a final version and they were testing the whole placebo effect to see who had the critical listening skills to pick things out.

It's like if some one posts a photo of a PC right. Some people would take one quick look, their eyes would tell their brain "yeah that looks awesome" and then I look at it and start studying every nut, bolt and drop of paint.

It's just how my brain works, it's incredibly sensitive to things like that. Like, I can't even sit in the back seat of a car because the flickering light between the trees makes me chuck. I'm talking hyper sensitive...

So Crossfire for me was nothing but misery.

its not just MT. How popular would Diablo be if you could pay a one off cost, and have it on your phone to play anytime and anywhere you want. e.g. on bus or train going to school, in your lunch break etc.

Have you seen the small Chinese Windows 10 and Android clamshell computers you can buy? The GPD models like the Win series are the most famous but there are lots of clones & competitors about nowadays. I think a few of the recent "Gamer phones" have also come with gamepad accessories, and iirc the Smach Z is currently on sale but with full production only just starting due to some issues.
A more budget solution is to get a phone stand for an existing PS4/XOne/Steam/Switch/Ect controller and just pair it via bluetooth(Need a 2nd or 3rd gen Xbone controller and latest Steam controller firmware for bluetooth on them), there are a fair few reasonable emulators and ports and stuff like that nowadays, a lot of Unity games seem to get a port now and theres been a handful of AAA ports of older games.

EDIT: But the Switch is still really nice, BoTW (I played that on Wii U myself) is probably my favourite game of all time, Mario Kart 8 is probably the best of the series and the DLC is all quality (That's standard on the Switch version I think), and Odyssey (Which I borrowed my friends Switch to play through) is a masterpiece and certainly the most polished and expansive 3D Mario so far.

If you look at the source on that it literally says Geforce RTX 2080 in the GPU info. Looks like a doctored RTX 2080 result.

Maybe there is something suspecious given Bungie got to keep their Destiny IP.

EA cancelled another Star Wars game, It was apparently going to be a sort of spiritual successor to Star Wars Bounty Hunter, Set in an open world.
