The middle one is visibly dimmer than the other two, and I can't make it match, no matter what I do. (Click to show)

I wish other companies calibrated their consumer-grade displays to sRGB like Apple does. That way at least the same content looks the same across different displays. This is especially relevant and important in multi-monitor setups.

Consumer displays usually aren't calibrated.

 

The only ones that do so right now are Dell with their Ultrasharps as far as I know (if we're talking about desktop monitors only). As for consumer grade computers that come with displays (eg. laptops) I think Apple, Dell w/ the XPS lineup, and maybe HP on their Elite and Spectre products (I'm not sure about the Elites) along with maybe the Surface products are probably calibrated. VAIO should be calibrated on the VAIO Z products.

So the damnedest thing: When I first got my GTX 1070 there were a few games the didn't show much improvement over my GTX 970. I was struggling to break 30FPS on Crysis 3 at 1080p, as well as Ryse at 1.5xSS. I couldn't even get Doom to hit 60FPS at 1080p.

 

Randomly, after restarting my computer the other day performance landed about where it should be. 60ish FPS on Ryse with 1.5xSS, 90-120FPS on Crysis 3 1080p, and about 120FPS on Doom at 2880x1620.

LG do too, on their TOTL monitors...

Although heading towards two years old now, my 31MU97 still looks fantastic, and that's all I care about, not washed out like cheaper panels.

Classic case of driver jealously ... just took the old 970 driver hooks a little while to accept the change and finally let go of their control ... I go through the same thing when I get a new girlfriend...

Monitors are one of those things that are generally more immune to age IMO just like audio gear. Sure there are advancements in the panel and driver technologies but if they looked or sounded good in the first place they will stay looking or sounding good for a long time.

 

Then again maybe everything will look like garbage against OLED panels with infinite black depth.

Given a R7 370 was an outdated HD7850, yes it's a 3 gen jump.

That's why I buy high end cards really cheap O.o

As someone who's had both haswell and skylake ...

 

There is HUGE difference in the temps of skylake. (Very cool) but mostly performance wise didn't really improve much (5.7% at most) but OCs went up from 4.6 to 4.8 at least.

Skylake was the usual efficiency improvements over Haswell. They added a more precise voltage curve or something and along with the node shrink was able to give some very respectable efficiency improvements. This was mostly aimed at mobile of course.

 

Yup, super triggered.

Here's the links to a few PCs I've built recently!

 

The white SM8 is my personal machine and the rest are friends builds.

 

And yes, I am a Caselabs fanboy

I think Zen and Vega are slated for Q4 2016. There was some recent article saying Zen for Q1 2017 but Zen was taped out awhile ago I think. Engineering samples have been out for a bit too.

It taped out before Polaris 10 even launched haha
It should be either q4 2016 or q1 2017

I have gotten a new GPU for..... nearly 4 years now? Damn. Still running my 650Ti Boost, and she runs like a champ. I haven't done any work to it, not even changing thermal paste, just the very infrequent dusting.

 

I recently caved in and bought Squad. I don't think Humvees are supposed to do that. XD But hot damn the game is hard, compared to other shooters it is on completely different scale. It's quite impressive.

 

 

It also made my GPU hate my and my CPU probably despises me... :( It really does push a machine hard, all my settings are pretty much bottomed out and my GPU can't keep up with my CPU getting hit fairly hard. Hopefully when they get to optimization there will be massive improvements.

I am speechless, really nice builds. Got to say I like your personal machine the best.

Thanks! I lot of man hours went into all those builds. Mine is my favorite too, but I may be a little biased :P

Just some RGB LED strips I got off ebay. I also made an extension for it and ran another strip behind my desk for some sweet mood lighting
