Also, PS4 VR will be out October 13th. My neighbor was one of the very few people who got the preorder on Amazon before it sold out instantly. He was contemplating selling it, but I think he will keep it. I also thought a new 4k PS4 was suppose to be announced but I haven't heard that officially

That is true. I would much rather have my kids playing a console where they can't eff anything up.

It seems like hardcore console gamers are always so excited about the new things that are going to be available on the next gen console when they could have all of that right now with a PC. I'm not a huge gamer by any means and I've enjoyed console gaming, but it makes so much more sense to build a gaming PC if you're that into gaming rather than buying a new console every few years just to get a couple upgrades.

So when are you upgrading your GTX 970 to a GTX 1070 or 1080?

Corey, have you been playing your Xbox One? I was just reading how it's possible to access your Xbox via your work computer and play games on it that way (during lunch of course). That's pretty sweet.

It will be released by Christmas 2017 but no details of a price were given.

Microsoft reveals its final Xbox Project Scorpio specs
So far, we've known that Project Scorpio will run at 6 teraflops, ahead of its main competitor the PlayStation 4 Pro with 4.2 teraflops of graphical power. Microsoft also plans to replace its 8GB of DDR3 RAM / 32MB of ESRAM with 12GB of GDDR5 memory on Project Scorpio. While many had hoped Microsoft would transition to AMD’s latest Ryzen CPU architecture, Digital Foundry has revealed that the company is sticking with a custom Jaguar-based processor.

Digital Foundry wasn't able to test this fully, but Microsoft did provide a ForzaTech demonstration with the Xbox One engine operating at native 4K, and locked at 60 fps. The GPU utilization remained between 60 and 70 percent during the demo, suggesting the console has power to spare.

I don't know what a teraflop is, but I see it used all the time to measure graphics cards and I always laugh. What a dumb thing.

There are a lot of measurement terms that I find interesting and amusing, but teraflop is one of my favorites.

That doesn't help. Now all I can think of is 1 trillion flops.

Lol, right. I know what Tera is, but I have no idea what a flop is or what it measures.

FL oating
O perations
P er
S econd

floats in programming are decimal point numbers (0.0001). Floats are big as far as a single variable goes which means it takes the longest for them to be translated or calculated by the processors (CPU (Central Processing Unit) or GPU (Graphics Processing Unit)). So, higher FLOPS means it can calculate all the angles a computer needs to draw a picture faster and faster.

TL;DR: Flops = how many times "The Flash" can calculate per second.
