Title: Computex In a Nutshell
Post by: GaK_45 on June 13, 2016, 11:08:24 AM
So now that Computex is over and everyone has a chance to 'digest' it what were the big take aways for you?

For me:

Asus does a robot.... meh.

VR everywhere... possibly the future (which was NOT 3D)... if the game titles show up. Give me CoD, BF, FO4, Oblivion, and a good racing game and it may just succeed.

IoT everywhere... meh. Eventually everything will be connected but I dont see it happening soon... as nothing made be go 'shut up and take my money'. Instead its 'and now it can connect to the Interwebz!'/ Blarg.

Booth babes... everywhere. Glad to see SJW wankers still havent screwed up everything. Maybe "peak annoyance" is past us! :P

Intel... 6950X. 'nuff said... for better or worse. :P

AMD is in serious trouble, but the 480 shows promise at being a great bang for the buck... but they dont have anything ready to take on the NV GTX 1080 so expect premium cards to just keep on being insanely priced.

NV... is thinking about expanding 'beyond' just video cards (and games). Many have tried to branch out from their core area... few succeed. Will be interesting to see if NV can do it. BUT aiming at cars, AI, and the server market is pretty aggressive. In the mean time they are in a good position.

MS... missed an opportunity. Want to kill off PS4 and other consoles... make Windows 10 become the XBox. Use a built in VM for security and bam every PC becomes a 'console'. Instead it was 'oh yeah... we are going to do the whole VR thing too.... kinda sorta'. Blarg.

Bunch of smaller companies had some innovative ideas, cool to see the 'little guy' is pushing the envelope and not just the usual suspects (who mainly stumbled this year).

Thanks for the info. I think the next 12 months are going to really show us if AMD has hope of fixing itself. The "next gen" APU isn't going to help IMO as its a revolution, not the evolution they require in CPUs and GPUs to regain solid relevance.

If the hype is correct then Polaris is going to be a massive gain on the gpu front. Then there is zen on the CPU front...a wild card that I hope can return competition in the CPU landscape. CPU advance has been saddening since bulldozer and only cutting it away as a lesson learned is going to progress the company. If only they had decided to die shrink Thuban instead.

Oh hey look...Bethesda is 'remastering' Skyrim, a 2011 game...why or why didn't they actually put effort into it and say remaster an actually old classic of theirs such as Morrowind. Skyrim is going to be on the same engine...how is it remastering if all they'll probably be doing is 'borrowing' the HD content modders have implemented themselves and essentially calling it a day.

why not actually remaster some masterpieces and redo fallout 1 and 2 and tactics for Phone and tablet? these are simple to port games that would be great on a mobile device.

NO MORE LARPING GAMES!!! haha steam punk or future I am not interested in Skyrim but I do know its a great game

I'm not sure how much of a market or demand there is, but it would be a good idea and would help promote more of their games. There could be licensing issues though.

Well...that is only a couple bucks, isn't the Skyrim Remastered going to be full retail price if you don't already own Skyrim with all the DLC?
