Seems like AMD finally got the ball rolling with Polaris and Vulkan.


TL;DW: AMD's architecture is better than Nvidia's, but AMD's drivers are garbage compared to Nvidia's.
This is why Nvidia tends to have a lead under DirectX 9 to 11.
But this issue is removed with low-level APIs like Vulkan (or DX12) since these put the game performance entirely in the hands of the developers, making the hardware architecture the only thing that matters for performance.

Seems very likely that I'll be picking up an AMD RX480. I just hope the claimed 1080p at 120-240FPS with the hardware encoder holds true.

Looking for some headset help. I currently have a Kingston hyper x Cloud and I really love them. My only problem is that the microphone is sensitive. I have my little brother right beside my desk and he talks rather loud. I try to edit my audio settings but I would have to yell if I don't want to get cut off every 5 seconds. Does anyone have any recommendations for another headset or maybe someway to possibly help me with this issue? I would really appreciate it.
If you found me helpful give me some +Rep :)

You should do the pink ward patented mic noise filter - that is - to put a washcloth over your mic xd
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

Knit a tiny cozy for your mic, should work the same way.

This is gonna be an issue with almost any headset you get. Especially if your brother is sitting close to you. If your brother is sitting at least a couple of meters away a noise-canceling mic might help, but there's no guarantee.
Have you considered replacing your brother instead? :D
Seriously though, the easiest thing to do if your own speaking volume is good is simply to make him talk more quietly.

@Wayne and DisturbedFox
Let's take the mouse discussion to the PC thread. I'm considering buying a new one myself.

I currently have a (dying) Logitech G500 which I've personally always been very happy with. The most logical option therefore might be to look for something similar (I assume the G502 is its successor?), but at the same time I'm sure there are plenty of mice out there that fit my needs so I'll keep my options open.

A friend of mine swears by the Razer Deathadder, which in terms of design/shape looks quite similar to the Zowie mice that Fox mentioned in the other thread.

Ultimately, what I'm looking for is a mouse which:
- is comfortable (I realise this is subjective, but keep in mind I don't exactly have small hands)
- has 2 side buttons (a few more is fine, but I don't need a second keyboard on there)
- is accurate enough to play games such as League, Smite and Overwatch (casually); I'm not an expert on which DPI settings are best for that purpose but I'm pretty sure I don't need it to go up to a million :P

I'm probably more used to a heavy mouse (having used the G500 with added weights to it) but am sure I can adapt to something lighter as well, I just don't care whether it's the lightest out there - which iirc is what Searz recommended before - or not since I don't plan on playing any of those games competitively and am not a FPS gamer.

Budget: ~80 euros

Is there anything wrong with just grabbing another G500?
As for dpi, I and as far as I remember everyone I asked before is using ~1000 dpi. I used something around 2000 before, but 1000 feels way better. You really don't need a mouse that can do more than ~3-4000 dpi.

If you decide not to go for another g500, you should go to a store or to friends to try what mice feel comfortable to you(you can't really tell over the internet).

If you don't mid the extra weight, a second keyboard on a mouse is pretty great(I mainly use the extra buttons for replacing stuff like ctrl+c and ctrl+v when browsing the internet, but you can obviously use them for games as well). It takes a bit of getting used to and isn't for everyone though. Finding your ideal key configuration also takes some time(I have my G600 for since ~a year and I found my ideal setup like a month ago).
