That was about it not reaching their target boost clocks, not about it crashing, I believe.

The exact wording was that the all POSCAP layout "cannot pass the real world applications testing" which doesn't make it clear whether they meant crashing or something else

In one of the replies I saw someone say that Valorant should be part of the test suite

Like, I get that it's a popular game, but the thing will also run on a toaster. Who needs to know so badly whether a 6700XT is capable of running it well?

valorant runs on a fork of UE4s mobile renderer, the tech is literally designed to run on phone GPUs lol

Isn't Coreteks the one that claimed Ampere would have a raytracing co-processor on the back of the PCB for some reason?

"The response from the community" included harassing the guy in the video personally, which continues to this day, so that's not great

It was a bad video but I don't think he deserves to get mocked for the rest of his life over it

Unsurprisingly it was the firmware dataminers who called it - they found this new model (codename Aula) in the FW over a year ago and determined it had an OLED screen and a new dock, but the same Tegra X1+ and 4GB RAM as the previous model.

The only thing they got wrong was thinking it would have 4k output capability, but IIRC that was justified in that they found references to a new video converter chip that supports 4k. Nintendo probably just chose that chip because it was cheap without any intention of actually putting 4k through it.

(probably wise considering the X1+ couldn't do a whole lot at 4k besides video streaming, which the Switch still doesn't do for some reason)

The main reason do it that way (rather than FRAPS or something) was you could render out an arbitrary framerate and guarantee no frames would be dropped

Counterstrike movie makers would bake out their demos at 600fps then blend them down to 30 or 60 to get super nice motion blur, and slow motion edits without judder

You can't do that with any games past Source AFAIK, so slow motion has to be done with hacks like Twixtor

I enjoy watching Hardware Unboxed's monitor reviews even when I don't really understand it, so without going too deep into monitor chat, what is "overdrive" and "overshoot"?

LCD panels take time to transition from one colour to another, but the bigger the transition the less time it takes. Display controllers exploit this by by "overdriving" the pixels, for example if a pixel is changing from 25 brightness to 50 brightness the controller may actually drive the pixel to 60 knowing that it will only actually reach 50 by the time the next frame interval arrives. Overshoot is when overdrive isn't tuned properly, so the overdrive drives the pixel past the value it's supposed to land on which manifests as inverted ghosting trails.

Finally a manufacturer following in the footsteps of the old Silverstone positive pressure cases :sickos:

Silverstone stuck gold with that design then just... stopped updating it
