Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
The 3000 series doesn't seem to have an additional VGA or DVI-I port.. So no, I'm not really excited for this series at the moment. With this card, I can't use a nice big CRT or KVM switch anymore. Unless I get one of these HDMI-VGA converters, which are of varying quality. Also, the power …

Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

My old simracing computer, the one I was going to repurpose for gaming some early 2000 titles only, like Grand Prix 4, I decided to give to my dad. He’s going to build a NAS and surveillance cameras system on it as well as load up some of his vmware linux machines remotely. It’s a bit more powerful …

3) my question this time was directed towards graphics quality, not performance Those two are linked though, more performance and you can set graphic quality higher. The resolution of the RTX 3080 could be increased quite a bit and still run as well as the GTX 1070. Yes, I agree on that. I think we …

That's not a comparison between the two graphic cards: Youtube compression is more aggressive at 1080p. Motion blur is on in one of the videos. Framerate for both videos are capped at 60 FPS, while both cards perform very differently. 1) OK ✅ 2) I can’t really tell that difference. I’d never know …

Can you even tell the difference between 1080p and 4K on a fast moving FPS? by that logic, we should still be playing @640x480. I went from 1440 to 4k, and yes, you can tell the difference when you stop and look around. I only game at 1080p on modern titles. For a racing or any e-sport game, the …

“ To some people, better performance is more important, or money is less important, than it is to you.” “ the higher prices of newer graphic cards have deceived you into thinking lower end GPUs are needed.” For such an incredible ridiculous and nonsense conclusion, I give up. I seem to be “talking …

Those are just arbitrary decisions you made about what you want / feel you need. Not sure why you're shocked other people are making similar arbitrary decisions. I'm also still entirely unsure what you want to learn by discussing it? You want to discuss it, so again. What exactly are you hoping to …

Fair enough. Heres a question. Which features of these new cards can justify their expensive price, for games like first person shooters, sim racing and e-sports games? And another: Why the need to buy a gfx card with that much power, if currently there are no games that require its FULL POWER to …

I really believe the prices of these new cards that we are talking about in this thread must be discussed. It’s a point about them that is of interest here. If there's anything you want to know, then ask. Fair enough. Heres a question. Which features of these new cards can justify their expensive …

I’m not even trolling. I am not a troll, and I hate trolls. He is. Calling me by names, insulting. Accusing me of lying. Clearly he is the troll here. I am totally in favor of new technologies, but not for the price they charge for them. So far he has failed to defend why I or we should pay such …

These prices are not affordable. For literally nobody in this world. “Nvidia derangement syndrome” WTF 🤣 look what you are saying! I don’t give a damn to what brand a GFX has as long as its affordable and gives the expected benefits for each cent spent on it. Like, literally.

I’m not even 1% jealous. I don’t need a 3000 card and even if I were gifted one, I’d sell for double the price straight away because there are people stupid enough to pay for it. I already told you many times that I can afford any of these cards, I just do not want because I do not need them and I …

I am a cheapskate and I see nothing wrong in hanging onto our old hardware. I buy what I NEED, not what “is the future” just because “its the future!” I don’t have the need to “show off my amazing machine” the way you do, so you probably have some personal stuff to deal with if you need to do it. …

I've decided to stick to my GTX 1060 for the foreseeable future. That whole RTX30xx launch is a mess with bad PCB design, inflated prices and supply chain problems. RTX can wait for a while. I was fine without it for ages, I will be fine without it for a little while longer. 🙂 And I'm absolutely …

Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

While I am testing the latest UTM 2.0 on my iPad Pro and running Windows 98 SE, I checked NBA Live 97, and the game runs really well. So far so good. NBA Live 97 relies on DirectDraw, so no need for 3d acceleration features. The same runs well on VMware Fusion and QEMU 5.1.0 on my Mac. The mini …
