    20% sounds like a lot. How is the "stutter" situation? DX10 Mode?

    That'll be a tough one to isolate. Don't expect huge gains but there is a world of difference between the 2005 compiler and the 2013. The new compiler can make certain portions of the code run 4x...
  3. Microsoft FSX Steam Edition out now 80% off

    Anyways you can obviously make it out from the title.

    Oh sweet now I know where to find the Beaver! That's actually the airport you can buy, each plane that you steel as long as you park it inside the hangar, it'll be available to you later.

    That...

    No keyboard/mouse. Surprising since so many people prefer that for first person shooters. They do allow steering wheels, and even certain games allowed a flight stick. I guess anything to keep...

    You might also want to use a version of Prime from 10 years ago if you want "reality". No point in stress testing AVX and FMA.

    I should try that actually. The first thing I did was buy the airport so I have a couple of aircraft already in my hangar. Still I'm sure I can find a helicopter closer to the city.

    The...

    I got the PS4 version the week it came out. Really enjoyed the flight school training thing. But I still haven't managed to find my way onto the tarmac to steal a commercial jet, though I did find...

    In order for a CPU to reach 100% efficiency it needs to make just about ever data access from the onboard cache. Anytime you have to go fetch information from RAM you basically stall the processor. ...

    Even a fresh recompile with no source code changes would go a long way with all the newer optimization in VC++13. I would guess at least 10% improvement, especially if they up the baseline processor...

    Apparently you don't even know how to distinguish between AC power signal, and the Power Spectrum of an Audio Signal.

    SO please save the BS for someone else. Your resume doesn't make up for your...

    Trolling much? You seem to have missed the point that the H55 was rated higher in all categories we're discussing here. So no I'm not making excuses for the reviews, I'm giving general commentary...

    The guru at anandtech left this year, Anand. He works for Apple now. The site is probably owned by CBS or Disney or some nonsense now.

    guru's at anandtech?

    Corsair's budget offering actually turns out to be one of its strongest. The H55 is as no-frills as it gets, but boasts a solidly performing fixed-speed fan and a respectably...

    You realize there are newer models than the 5 year old ones that were tested. H55 in particular and it's only $60 including shipping from Amazon! I got mine on sale. And yes look at maximum...

    Why would you pay $50 dollars for a noisy fan when you can get liquid for the same price. Boggles the mind with all the useless personal preferences that are given as advice here. So here's mine ;)

    And your solution of finding the source code, and having a single developer maintain it was somehow actually useful? Perhaps I'm actually mocking the entire idea?

    But please tell us what he could...

    Because Unreal 4 is at least possible to license and you could build a sim from it. FSX isn't? It's called being realistic, and not living in a fantasy world.

    You'd be better off by paying $20 dollars and licensing the Unreal 4 engine with it's source code.

    760 is a midrange card... the 290 is the high end of AMDs.

    Also the "NVidia" logo means nothing. There are plenty of PC games that are coming out now that still have that stupid logo, even...
