Correct, but there were questions about whether or not that that would be the case for the next version of Office. I’m glad to see Microsoft is still going to offer licenses for Office.

There were some questions over weather or not Microsoft would continue to offer perpetual licenses of Office beyond the current version. Now we know.

I’m definitely in the camp of “keep all components at stock settings” when I test because not everyone wants to dig into the BIOS or otherwise and mess with the settings. So you’re right, I do not have XMP enabled. Would be interesting to see how many more frames Crysis: Remastered would achieve with a higher RAM Read more

It’s very possible. I did notice some CPU bottlenecking when I was benchmarking the RTX 3080 for my review.

The game is fully available to anyone, not just reviewers. It released on the 18th, yesterday. As for the driver, Nvidia released a new game ready driver the day the RTX 3080 released. True Nvidia doesn’t have a Crysis-specfic driver but maybe it will in the future.

Ah, thanks for spotting that accidental omission. I’m running an Intel i9-10900K. And yeah, 16 GB is still plenty sufficient for the majority of games. Increasing the frequency or amount helps with offloading work from the CPU, but for GPU-bound games it doesn’t matter as much.

The RTX 3080 is actually not that much larger than a RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX 3090 though, that will be something I’ll get pictures of.

It’s just blah, although if it did pick up ghosts that would definitely make it more interesting!

The Xbox One S All Digital Edition is the only Xbox One console that requires a $20 upgrade fee. The rest do not. You still need to trade in any Xbox One console. This is what I was told by an Xbox spokesperson.

Based on what I was told, this seems to mean that you are still required to pay any outstanding balances on top of the monthly fee for the new console, so your monthly payment will be higher.

And based on the Xbox One to Xbox Series S/X upgrade process, it seems clear that if you got your Xbox One via Xbox All Access, Read more

To me, it’s similar to leasing a car. You agree to pay X amount per month to have the car over a three year period, and then when the agreement is up you return the car. However, you usually have the option to buy the car to own.
