It's been a while since I've seen someone so blatantly incompetent.
One who jumps to conclusions based on nothing, has no idea what the difference between an i7 and an i5 is (not ONCE have you mentioned any reason why a gamer should prefer an i7 to an i5, because you yourself have zero understanding of what hyperthreading is and what it is used for).
All you can do is resort to petty insults and skew words, like quoting a system requirements article t...
Farewell, Cat! Sad to see you go, but I wish you all the best! The site just won't be the same without you...
(Just saying bye! Don't want extra bubbles, I'm good with 4 or 5 or however many I have.)
"And I admit I am no expert"
Now there's an understatement! One who understands nothing about hyperthreading making remarks as to which games will or will not require an i7 in the future.
"Star Citizen is going to need an i7"
>posts requirements that do not require an i7.
Summary of the above post:
"I know absolutely nothing about computers, but I know that the i7s are better than the i5s in general, though I do not know specifically how or why. Therefore, I am going to BS a recommendation having done zero research and blatantly go against what is recommended in a new, high-end gaming PC build (which is to get the i5-4690K). I also inflate my bubble count whenever I lose them as a result of my uneducated comments."
Hahaha. Ok, you have to be trolling. There is no way someone can be as obtuse and incapable of understanding as you. I've linked the relevant articles that smash your childlike understanding of PCs to the ground, I suggest reading those (if you are actually not trolling, which I hope you are) instead of me repeating myself.
"i5s have been around for 5 years." And i7s have been around for 7 years. Nice observation though!
(If by some strange chan...
From what I linked (and what you obviously did not read): "CPUs priced over $230 offer rapidly diminishing returns when it comes to gaming performance. As such, we have a hard time recommending anything more expensive than the Core i5-4690K, especially since this multiplier-unlocked processor is easy to tune up to 4.3 GHz or so with the right cooler. Even at stock clocks, though, it matches or beats the old $1000 Gulftown-based Core i7-990X Extreme Edition in our benchmarks."
At first I thought you were trolling, but you seem wholly unaware of what goes into building gaming PCs. The Lenovo all-in-one you linked... the GPU in that thing (840A) is an atrocity and will play next-to-nothing modern at reasonable settings.
Diminishing returns kick in with any gaming CPU beyond the i5-4690K at the moment, the highest tier i5 and the one recommend for gaming. See here: 422d ago 2 agree1 disagreeView comment
@BATTOUSAI - Ubersampling is supersampling. If you're running at 1080p or 1440p, you can expect supersampling to be a severe performance cutter. It is highly unnecessary when gaming at resolutions above 1080p.
@LAWSON - SLI 2GB 760s would be fine for 1440p depending on the game and settings. It may not be for Witcher 3, but it remains to be seen. I'm running SLI 2GB 670s and they have yet to give VRAM issues with anything, just bear in mind you cannot use both 1440p together with exotic forms of AA with 2GB VRAM (not that you really need to if you're running 1440p).
SRPG. Strategy RPG. While I wouldn't call Fire Emblem a "Traditional JRPG", it is still a "Japanese SRPG" if we are to be pedantic.

Just a word of warning to anyone upgrading to an XL or otherwise performing a system transfer - make sure the eShop is up before initiating the system transfer, as an eShop connection is required at the end of the transfer to move over your game licenses to the new system.
The PS4 version looks mostly at-par visually, but it is important to remember that it runs capped at 30fps to achieve such results ( http://www.dualshockers.com... ). By comparison, a GTX 670 can run the game at an average frame rate of 100 fps. In terms of minimum frame rate, it drops to around 45 when tons of things are hap...
It is 'interesting' in the sense that Steam Machines are being offered with AMD hardware, yet the support isn't actually there yet with the OS. You can use a Radeon card on Linux by the way.
I have a 670 myself but I have used Radeon cards in the past.
So at the VGX they "hinted" the two teams, ultimately saying "can't tell you" when asked if there were multiple teams. That definitely gets me pretty excited. I think the big slip up here was this for me:
Listen to when Geoff asks if we'd see any new Metroid. Sound...
Interesting that AMD is not supported from the get-go but once support has been added, it seems like SteamOS will run just fine on any modern machine. Always great to see that. It'll be great once a few new Steam Machine SKUs roll out giving the consumer choice between Nvidia/Intel, AMD/AMD, AMD/Nvidia or Intel/AMD configurations.
The $500 Steam Machine is quite well-priced, and since it has a 270X in it I am guessing the AMD support will come in sooner than later.
I read your article and don't agree with a good portion of what you're saying. Please read on.
"Mario has turned into much more than an annualized series."
This depends on what you're speaking of. The character being overused is not the same as a series with annual release - this inherent logical flaw is this association with 'Mario the character' and what Mario is as a series. Sure, you could make the claim that Mario shows up i...
? Obviously this mission and the Deja Vu mission are not canon.
I'm not certain I understand. If Miiverse was a selling point for the Wii U for you, um okay, but what should be setting the 3DS and Wii U apart for you is the fact that both consoles have different games...
So you're aware, along with this merge you will finally be able to add your Wii U's Nintendo Network ID to your 3DS account, which consolidates your eShop accounts. So this is actually a great update for Wii U+3DS owners.
