The PC is dead?

WoW has over 10 million subs..


Please stop being a noob and start SC1, SC2 or D2.

SC1- "Estimated 500,000 online on Battle.net 2013.02.22"
SC2- "About 500,000 players on Battle.net" "27,000 games in your region"
D2- 480,000 players online.

Do you have any of these games? Run them and read for yourself.

WoW isn't added into battle.net population.

Sony said 1.8 TLFOPS for the GPU which is in the same range as a GTX 660


while that might be true, what its lacking is memory bandwidth, and the bit rate.. for example..

GTX550ti while haveing a faster memory bandwidth is only has a 192bit bit rate on the memory..

While the GTX460 has a slower memory bandwidth its clocking it at a 256bit bit rate.. so witch card is faster?

See what im getting at? The Jaguar APU and the AMD APU series havnt gone beyond the 192bit mark yet, while affordable dedicated cards are boasting an increadable 512bit bit rate.

I'm starting to think 1.8 is the PS4's theoretical peak rather than sustained average or highest tested score.

You run the exact MB as I do. I don't use a crappy soundcard, I go through an Onkyo receiver with Infinity bookshelf speakers.

I didn't think there was anyone else (other than me) still sporting this CPU.

Nice.
I have been wanting to upgrade for a while, but I'm waiting for the Intel Haswell lineup to release, hopefully in March


All rumors point to June 2. I know - major bummer - I'm waiting for Haswell too.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA...

with AMD APU's in both the next gen consoles expect large amounts of awesome ports to PC's that will be running very efficiently...

people will be using PC's to play in 3D, on multiscreens at 4k resolutions etc...

with the arrival of occulus rift VR i wouldnt be suprised finding micro gaming pc boxes you just plug the occulus into and play anywhere...

PC has a llooooong way to go before dying....

Diablo franchise on the other hand desperately needs console audience to survive... actually it should probably be an iphone game ... then D3 will really hit its target audience...

If only they were making GTA 5 on the PS4...

Must wait through much of 2014 if there is PC version at all.

Even on an Nvidia EVGA GTX470 I get a huge mob on the screen and it drops down to -10 FPS.

I'd really like to see a console handle that.

After all the bashing and trash-talking after the GTA 4 porting humiliation i think they will do a better job this time around.

"The PC is dying" myth pops up on the tech sites all the time. It's pretty stupid.

Approx 1.5 million players online every evening is active enough for me.


lol i liked the evidence, in that case TL2 has about 3 million active players as we speak!


There are as many PUBLIC OPEN games in Diablo 3-US then there are worldwide entire TL2 players

Note, that steam tracks Worldwide, Online, And offline, And that's included in-active clients that are left open

Its 8 AM Est by the time of posting this, So prime time for other non US countries, yet TL barely has over 5000 people playing it.

The entire Battle.net, GLOBALLY, averages 500,000 players online, and most of these 500,000 are SC2 players. Go start SC1, D2 or SC2 and see for yourself.

I'm really getting SICK AND TIRED of you idiots pulling random numbers out of your butt.

"hurrr durrr 437598 bazingazillion people are online huurrr duuurr game aint dead duuur".

SHUT UP.
