Ooh nice. Finally smaller OLED monitors. Bit pricey for a 27" 1440P but considering its an OLED at 240hz thats got to be amazing for competitive gaming.

Also managed to snag a ridiculous bargain from Amazon. There were 1TB WD SN850X going for £14 each!

Usually have terrible luck at getting mispriced stuff like this but managed to get 4 lol. Anyone else get anything this decent (tech wise) this Black Friday?

"There were 1TB WD SN850X going for £14 each!"

Damn dude noice catch lol. Insane value!

I thought you liked the Samsung QD-OLED more than just regular OLED panels, Yuri. Won't you wait to see if Samsung launches a 32" monitor with one of those panels?

And Holy Sh!t, hinch! That's not a bargain, that's a steal. Congratulations. But does your PC have room for the four drives or will you use them in several PCs?



Please excuse my bad English.

Thanks. Yeah it was crazy. Was thinking they'd cancel my order but nope, dispatched and sent the next day (love Prime lol). Another mad thing is there were also the 2TB's going for £19. But I missed the boat on that one and it refused to check out from basket :/

Just have to find a good PCI-e NVMe adapter now for the Gen 3 SSD. Hmm.

Cheers, yeah lol. Plan to use two in my current PC and relagating my current Sabrent 2tb (Gen 3) to a PCi-e adapter slot. Not sure if that'd affect my GPU bandwidth or other SSD's. One for my backup build and the last with an external enclosure for the PS5/PC.

Yea probably will. But Samsung has a fetish for curved displays and while it's fine on t heir ultrawides, if they do a curved 32 inch again, I'll just get the LG one.

Sounds like a good plan. And i don't think the PCIe adapter could cause trouble as long as you install it on a PCIe 3.0 slot.

Ah, yes, Samsung and its obsession with curved panels. I don't really understand why they do it in regular monitors and TVs. It not only doesn't help, but it actually makes it worse more often than not.

Well, let's cross the fingers and hope they forget about it.

Ryzen 7000 series getting pretty great deals in Canada and else where too

https://www.amazon.ca/AMD-7950X-32-Thread-Unlocked-Processor/dp/B0BBHD5D8Y

That's about $564 USD for a 7950X. On contrast, there were no discounts for Ryzen 5950x for 6-8 months

Well to be fair, what he was trying to do was compare GPU scaling against consoles. Consoles don't have a 1080p or 1440p setting so they only way he can compare is to use the same methods that consoles were using which is 4k upscaling with 1440p internal. I don't think there's anything wrong with what he did this time around lol.

And yea, RTS revolution ain't gonna happen anytime soon. But least it is creeping up with MS to a degree. They did AoE 1/2/3 DEs and now they are doing AoM DEs. AoE IV was a step in the wrong direction imo but hopefully they learn and make the next one better. It's one of those situations where RTS is on life support which is a sad reality.

Xbox scales things the way they should on a console.

If you opt for 1080P or 1440P in the settings, the game will still run at it's native resolution, nothing actually changes for the game itself.
The console itself will upscale or downscale to meet your resolution.

So on a 1440P display if a game is 2160P, you get a very crisp and clear output as the game is super sampled down to 1440P.

1080P shouldn't be a tested resolution these days, it's pretty pointless with 1440P being the mainstream resolution to target on PC.

According to the latest Steam Hardware & Software survey, about 65 % of Steam users have 1080p as their resolution. 1440p comes next at 13 %, and it's followed by 1366x768 at 5 %, and only then do we get 4K at a little over 2 %. I'd say that if tests need to get rid of one resolution, it's something other than 1080p.

Remember that the Steam Survey is heavily skewed by laptops for the past decade all running 1080p displays. Hell even flagship laptops with 3080 Ti mobile graphics are generally paired with 1080p displays even now. 1440p is only starting to take off on laptops.
