Fallout 4 - Official Trailer submitted by Trestkie to gaming

forthe48 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago

You aren't wrong, and part of this is the fanboy in me speaking, but at least we're getting honest graphics in the trailer. I'll take this over a pre-rendered trailer that would've led to let-down. Plus, on PC, I'm sure we'll see some great mods to improve it (not that we should have to, but, y'know.)

Either way, hype for Fallout 4 confirmed. Hopefully it's gonna be good, something just didn't feel the same in NV for me as it did in FO3.

I'm not really a Hola user, but as far as the blog post goes, it sounds really apologetic and genuine to me. What stood out to me is the introduction of a bug bounty program and committing to an audit from an external security company. As well as the first paragraph, the claim they make about "We...

I need some help after recent ascension... submitted by Ebb to pcmasterrace

Okay, so I'm basically just going to cheat a little bit and copy things from a few places, but:

Hz(Hertz) as a general term is the SI unit for frequency (one cycle per second.) In the case of monitors, this is generally called a refresh rate, and, potentially obviously, it refers to how many times per second the screen refreshes. The human eye refreshes around 60 times per second, so that's where most monitors aim (60hz or so.)

"You should ditch the source you got this from. The human eye does not "refresh" and it doesn't work with Hz. The 60Hz most monitors have come from earlier days where the refresh rate was directly connected to the refresh rate of the electricity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utility_frequency" - /u/Atherel

Some monitors go even higher, the high end of things right now generally being 144Hz, which means your display refreshes 144 times per second, making your gameplay feel smoother as long as your PC can deliver at 144+ FPS. I've never used a 144Hz monitor myself, but a lot of people claim that in Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, jumping from 60Hz to 144Hz, it felt like the game was almost in slow motion.

Hz in the case of your processor is how many cycles it does per second. 100 hertz means 100 cycles per second, so one gigahertz (GHz, which modern processors are generally measured in) is equal to one billion cycles per second.

This means that a 2.4Ghz processor does 2,400,000,000 cycles per second, the i5-4670k in my PC has a stock clock speed of 3.4GHz or 3,400,000,000 cycles per second, and overclocked it hits a clock speed of 4.2GHz, which is 4,200,000,000 cycles per second.

So, basically, Hz is a measurement of frequency, and means different things for your monitor than it does for your processor. But, generally, more is better in both monitors and processors.

As for Cache, "Cache memory, also called CPU memory, is random access memory (RAM) that a computer microprocessor can access more quickly than it can access regular RAM. This memory is typically integrated directly with the CPU chip or placed on a separate chip that has a separate bus interconnect with the CPU."

-http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/definition/cache-memory

I don't know a lot about overclocking RAM, as I've never done it or needed to do it, but from what I can find it seems like it doesn't provide too much of an advantage for most people anymore, and isn't worth it. I couldn't find anything proper on google to explain the pros of OCing RAM.

Hopefully that was at least partially helpful :P

I liked the story too. It was the only one I cared enough about to play through on Veteran. That was definitely the storyline peak of the series for me, and Modern Warfare 2 was (for me) the multiplayer peak of the series, just a lot of good memories with friends there.
