In Topic: Optimizing OpenGL FPS

21 November 2015 - 09:01 AM

A dualcore seems way outdated for game tests to me. For ex. if you would try X-Plane with a dualcore it would hardly run at all on all os. As X-Plane performs best on Linux, I'm way surprised to see such. The porting was done by a Mac company hence no wonder it needs a multicore.


PS: yes it fully uses all 8 cores hence I'm not surprised about such FPS on a dated dualcore

Even a i3 is mentioned as minium in the specs and this ridi* arstecnica gaming test site uses a dualcore!

Yes, probably a dual core, as used in that test, is not enough as one thread alone is needed for hlsl -> glsl conversion?


Found out that in Steam settings you can show FPS on Linux. My GTX770 with a i7 and all settings maxed is always above 100FPS with Alien Isolation.

Similarly priced steam machines easily outperform the other consoles.

In Topic: Alien isolation with SteamVR?

Only guessing that SteamVR would need some games at launch early next year:



Must be a cool VR experience, nevertheless I might (or not) buy Alien Isolation later today as it's 50% reduced.

They should all be tested for any kind of diseases.- Apparently many think to find work easily.

Merkel should have handled this differently. Instead of selfishly saying welcome cheap workers, she should have tried to find a solution with all EU countries. Now the EU seems to have agreed on military action against tug gangs. Honestly I don't think they will catch more then ~10% with the only result for the tug gangs to raise their price. And the poor will pay as they say "we shipped thousands to EU and they have a good live there."

Desperate on the long run spending millions for such while having thousands refugees every day... And how many will ever return to their fully bombed houses?
