TWICH 549: Big Navi and the Ice Lake Fail

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

re: display resolution metrics - Steam tracks user display resolution, but not display refresh capabilities. I think among the enthusiast crowd there is a sizable subset (myself included) that believe refresh rate has a bigger impact than display resolution given a certain display size. When I was shopping for displays last year there were seriously slim pickings for 4k displays with refresh rates of 144hz+ in the size I was looking for. In fact, I don’t think there were any options beyond 75hz.

So don’t despair Sebastian, I’m an enthusiast, I just choose to use my compute power to push more FPS rather than more pixels per frame.
