  1. The PS4 & Xbox One Thread - Part 2

    No, they only started proper last year. JDI is the world's largest supplier of LCD-type displays for smartphones. SONY is one of the primary stakeholders in its ops and LCD's are no longer seen in any of the flagship devices save SONY's. Everyone has pretty much transitioned over to OLED's.
  2. The PS4 & Xbox One Thread - Part 2

    No, not really. SAMSUNG has started making its own camera modules, those were SONY's biggest semiconductor component and now it has already slowed down for them. Same is the case with their display business.
  3. Destiny 2

    Garbage, if you want a time sink game try Warframe.
  4. The PS4 & Xbox One Thread - Part 2

    Already under stress from iOS and Android. People are no longer buying desktops, notebooks at the same rate as in the past. Also, Microsoft has already pivoted to an app and cloud-centric approach to its revenue model since Satya Nadella took over.
  5. The PS4 & Xbox One Thread - Part 2

    If we could endure the non-stop barrage of SONIC titles.
  6. Darksiders III

    They will in Darksiders 4 most likely.

    Solaris United Theme -- Keith Power (Warframe OST)
  8. Warframe

    One of the best way to reveal the whole new world. A chain gang chant given to music.
  9. HITMAN 2

    Naah! He will just be stuck in a traffic jam on the Western Expressway and the assassination thing will pop up because the building the VIP is holed up in will collapse or something.

    Nope, if you are building a new system, wait for the B450 boards from AMD to show up and then make a call.

    Okay, cool. Hold up for a couple days then. Wait for the cheaper B450 motherboards to show up. They will be perfectly suited to your needs. Cheers! A good B360 chipset based motherboard from any of your preferred AiB partner is golden. Cheers! In fact, even this looks good.

    What all do you need in that budget? Just the tower and its innards or the monitor, tower, peripherals all inclusive?

    Do you have a GPU currently?
  14. [PC] Ask The Experts Thread

    Answers, sequentially, Check local prices, please. Because the Core i5 8400 /8500 is a hex-core processor while the Ryzen 5 2600 /2600X is a hex-core processor with SMT (AMD's version of Hyper-Threading), so effectively it shows up with 12 cores. More cores = more resources = more reserve juice in the tank going forward. Yes, there is talk of Ryzen 2 but it would likely be 2019 when it shows up here. If you can wait, why not. If not Ryzen+ is not a bad choice in itself. Not really, original Ryzen landing prices were pretty solid when it landed here. Retailers might have gotten a good response with Ryzen is my only explanation for now. Someone recently posted in the What I bought thread, check there and get in touch. But yes, the highest refresh rate monitor in your budget is what you should gun for.
