Re: GTX 970 "3.5GB Edition" $30 refund in the USA

in Milliways
The claim links are not available yet. They will make another announcement when they are ready. Despite all the controversy over the RAM, I still rather like my 970. I've had mine for almost 2 years now, and it is still holding up, even with VR. I might get another year out of it before I think …

Re: The GTX 1060 Thread

in Milliways
The future is dx12 / vulkan and the 480 will be king of those games. First off, the 480 is a perfectly fine mainstream card. I'm sure you will be very happy with it. But, calling it king is a bit of a stretch. In the latest DX12 3DMark benchmark the 1060 narrowly beats out the 480 both with async …

Re: HTTPS is available

It did, but only older style encryption. Modern websites use TLS 1.1 and above. Anything else is considered insecure. Even 1.1 is being phased out I believe.

Re: System Shock Remake Demo

in Milliways
I'm very impressed. The attention to detail is quite astounding. Hopefully they can pull this off and continue this level of production quality. My only niggle is they need to bump the texture quality up a bit. I'm sure they will or at least offer the option to do so. Backed! I think this game could …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

in Milliways
My Oculus Rift CV1 arrived over the weekend. Been spending quite a few hours since then in the virtual realm. There are even plenty of "retro" things that can be done in VR. Playing the original DOOM and Quake brings a new feel to those classics. There is even a virtual arcade that can be downloaded …

Re: Is there any reason to use Windows 95/98 over 98se?

in Milliways
The free version of 98lite does at least rip out the sluggish IE based file manager and replace it with the snappier one from Win95. That alone helps 98 feel much faster on old hardware. It also reduces the amount of memory used which also helps. In the end, it mainly depends on your use case. If …

Re: Retro Consoles.... who plays them

in Milliways
I'm a huge fan of retro consoles. I've never seen PC and console as mutually exclusive. I love both equally. Here is a shot of my little retro console "den". Dayum there's some great consoles in there! A TurboDuo and an AES, as well as a NES toploader and SNES Jr - nice setup! :-D You forgot to …

Re: Advice on a good VGA to HDMI scaler?

in Milliways
I use the Sewell Hammerhead . I've not run into any issues with it. I made a video of it quite some time ago here . I've since upgraded my LCD to a BenQ. The old one was a Hanns-G. The BenQ seems to have issues with some resolutions, but I blame that on the monitor, not the Sewell. I should note, …
