That 2016 comes from Crowfall Kickstarter.Frykka said:I have yet to figure out how anyone thought that a game which kickstarted in Q1 of 2015 would be done in 2016... I bought my first package mid 2015 during Hungerdome and never saw any timeline for release before 2018 even as we prepared for the big reveal in 2017. I just don't see where any timeline was laid out by the devs that early. Any game is going to take 3-4 years or more... if you expect any less than that you would seem just plain gullible.
In turn-based combat the game may display all choices your teammates have already made for next turn, so that you can adjust your own choices based on that display of their choices.MadFrenchie said:
That would be a pretty unfulfilling way to do group content with PUGs. In real-time combat, I can see prompts for things such as ESO and GW2s interactable (that a word?) powers because you aren't locked into picking your next skill at the same time as the other player. You don't need the player to tell you they're using it before they do so, because you can react in real-time once you see it has been activated by another player. No such luck in turn-based.
Paper launching Quadro RTX makes more sense because with this launch they're taking current sales more from their competitors. Paper launching next gen GeForce wouldn't make sense because they'd be taking current sales from themselves.Ridelynn said:Nvidia competing at Wall Street has nothing to do with the tech side of things, let alone the fact that Intel/AMD stock price right now is almost entirely about CPUs and nVidia is only a bit player in an extremely niche market in that arena.Quizzical said:AMD's recent stock rise has nothing to do with Nvidia and everything to do with Intel's foundry division falling on its face.Ridelynn said:https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/08/14/nvidia-shares-rise-after-chipmaker-announces-utterly-awesome-new-tu.html
This is what this particular announcement and timing is all about.
AMD stock just advanced greatly versus Intel recently. nVidia doesn’t want to be ignored.
It's entirely about perception, public opinion, and nVidia wanting to square their GPU tech off against traditional CPU marketplaces - like raytracing.
As far as nVidia not doing a paper launch of GeForce - it's very much true that doing so isn't necessary from a competitive standpoint. AMD still isn't threatening Pascal right now, let alone whatever comes out next. But if nVidia needs a stock bump - you can bet that the first thing that will come out will be a press release for a paper launch, and nV's stock will go up 7-10% on just the news alone.... so there is very much at least one reason that nV ~could~ choose to do a paper launch.
I mean, otherwise, why else would they have just paper launched this Turing Quadro? They haven't even done anything significant with Volta yet.
