    New Build

    You're asking some difficult questions. Both the i9 9900k & the RTX 2080Ti have different issues but both are most likely as a result of being very new. If you have no budget worries they are the best - still - just. And expect them to get better as the drivers are refined. 9900k currently has a lot of power, which hasnt seen its full potential exploited yet. It also has features that arent used in games either. RTX 2080Ti has some reports of overheating issues. AMD is the kind if you have to pay attention to a budget and I dont think that can be argued. It also has a lot of top performers on the RSI website for setups. Personally I will be waiting. In about 18 months I will replace my current setup and try not to flinch too much at the cost - it will be Intel again, with NVME and whatever the top NVidia card is too.
  4. 3.3 is now live on the PU for those who havent used the PTU

    A Work In Progress [Always]

    Thanks for the info on the 9900k. Ive been looking at it and a lot of the reviews have been hedging their opinions. A big price increase for not a lot of gain. I think I will sit on my credit card for a bit

    CitizenCon Panel: The Principles of Flight

    From an economic point of view this will allow the potential to dial down settings for more economic use and reduce running costs, while still offering overclock should the need arise.It should also allow stealth ships to become even harder to spot. Very interesting and also useful. I think a lot of people are going to see serious difference with non Military ships. Especially when it comes to entering and exiting an atmosphere. Once fuel costs start being figured in, the incentive to use as little as possible will become more important. Also aerodynamic ships will be easier to fly. On top of that flying bricks are going to need a lot more careful handling.

    Consolidated Outland - Mustang 2948

    I think as a runabout this is going to do nicely. Clearly has a lot of limitations though.

    Anvil Aerospace - Valkyrie 2948

    Young man, I dont toss anything lol.

    Anvil Aerospace - Valkyrie 2948

    Looks great with lots of capability. But not for me - unless it has cargo capacity
  10. Another person commenting on the Freelancer being the biggest ship through the smallest jump point. Also the potential of the Max to be upgraded to a "Semi - Dur".

    Project Funding

    Found this very interesting - Possibly right to the point that they started listing the systems. ie each sytem costs $1 million to develop! https://robertsspaceindustries.com/funding-goals

    Cloud Tech

    Cloud Tech is going to be big fun! Scooping gasses for fuel is going to be much less simple than I thought originally.

    PTU 3.3 is open for all

    I'll wait patiently until the comes to the PU. They'll sort out a lot of bugs on the way

    Updated ship size chart with Kraken

    Problem is, I can carry more with a Hull C As an Industry Base of Operations, the Kraken could be very useful indeed, especially with repair facilities. But I anticipate is costing a lot to run and maintain too. Not convinced i'll need one any time soon, same as Pioneer AND I expect the price to be steep! So it's out of my budget It's also about the crew requirements. To much for me to handle in that regard.

    Drake Interplanetary - Kraken 2948

    I think as a mobile base of operations they will be very useful - and very expensive to run.

    FINALLY got the PU to run again!

    When 3.0 came out I was alarmed to see it taking 24gb of my 32gb on some days. Fortunately having that amount, it wasnt an issue, but a lot of people have suffered because of performance creep.

    Evocati 3.3 leaks have started on reddit

    Nice to see the leaks but a shame about the quality. I can be patient and wait for more buggy lagged gaming sessions as they introduce stuff

    Mercury Q&A

  21. Bursar

    My first time building a PC

    You might want to look at transfer rates, an M.2. comes in at 2k mb+, typically an SSD is 500mb. A fourfold+ increase in transfer rate isnt "completely" useless i'd suggest otherwise there would be no point in an M.2. drive would there? An SSD is a step behind an M.2. in evolution and development. Boards initially came with one slot for them and many now come with a pair. Interesting comments about things like ROG boards. I know a lot of us use and like them. I know I do. Personally I wouldnt touch anythig with a Gigabyte label in it - from regular failures over the years. Which I havent had with Asus. Personally running a pir of 7200 WD drives (mirrored) gives me redundancy. Some things need it - in my case 20 years of family digital pictures and the like. I also run an NAS mirrored too. Just because something says its reliable I wont trust my family images to it. And for the record I have an M.C.S.E qualification and experience with network admin.
