All those wires though...

I still like my old Zboard Fang, so much so that I bought 4 off eBay when they stopped making them. I'm on my third Fang now! :(

Still waiting for a company to make a decent half-keyboard for gaming with butterfly keys like my Fang.

That's great but it's the BF4 DLC I'm after, for my friend.

Hadn't even realised that Nvidia were now BF partners until E3, BF games used to be AMD affiliated before BF V.

And this is why VR isn't really taking off, that's about the minimum many would spend on a PC to run the thing!

Also not a Discord fan, mainly because of its woeful lack of security/encryption!

Hmmm, interesting! I have a BenQ XL2730Z Freesync monitor which is 1440p.

It was one of the first Freesync displays to market though, so I doubt mine is 4k in disguise. I'm guessing this is a more recent practice?Reply
Jacob Ridley Avatar

I'm afraid we don't know how long this has been practice. Nor do we know which panel manufacturer this is in regards to.


If you haven't noticed a lack of sharpness up until this point, however, you're probably all good :)

Steam Link app preview: completely unnecessary for over 75% of PC gamersSteam Link app preview: completely unnecessary for over 75% of PC gamers

Yeah Moonlight... As an AMD card owner for the last few years, I'm sick of hearing about it, lol!

I've actually been using Steam In-Home Streaming since it was announced in beta and was one of the first owners of a Steam controller too. Neither is perfect, but I've been enjoying streaming PC games to my TV for a few years now, (I also got a Steam Link when they came out).

Using a powerline network really helped with latency but I'm going to see how this new app fares via my Sony Bravia Smart TV over 5Ghz tonight, just out of curiosity.Reply
Dave James Avatar

Yes, I can imagine Moonlight must be a bit maddening! I'm still surprised AMD haven't created a GPU-based streaming setup themselves.


And I've gotta say, the actual stream feels more robust, in terms of image and compression, compared with Steam's In-Home Streaming. Just make sure any Game Mode feature is turned on with your Bravia to minimise input lag as much as poss.


It does seem to fall over a fair bit, and has issues with menus and settings that pop up on the desktop just after you click play within Steam, but I'm sure those will be ironed out over the beta test.

From UT and GoW... to milking the Class-based and Battle-royale shooter modes.

How the once mighty have fallen. Sad that people have lost their jobs of course.Reply
panbient Avatar

That's what I was thinking too. Can't really comment on GoW but I quite clearly remember when the first Unreal Tournament came out. There was nothing else like it at the time - Bleszinski and Co. were the innovators.


Shame they lost that edge and just chased the crowd this time around.

Had to rate this game as it's an excellent multi-player for the sofa but you really need 4 players to get the most fun out of it. It was rated 2 ½ stars here before I gave it my 4 ½ which was way too low. Grab it in a Steam sale and play with friends or family. ;)
