GSY Video PC

You may not have heard about INDUSTRIA, unless you saw Digital Foundry's coverage of this PC game featuring DLSS and ray tracing (on shadows, reflections and ambient occlusion), but it is a very demanding one even on high end machines. Clearly, it should not be the case when deactivating ray tracing and when using DLSS with our i9 9900K and RTX 2080 Ti, as framerate still drops regularly under 60 and lowering the resolution (with the scaling option, for some reason, we can't seem to be able to change resolution manually). Aside from that, the game's atmosphere is really intriguing, but Bleakmill's title is best played with a mouse and keyboard. For some reason, playing with a controller doesn't feel right and we even add to map certain functions like the sprint button to it as they were not available on the default layout. Moreover, we're not too fond of the old school melee combat which makes it difficult not to get hit. That said, the feedback on Steam is mostly positive, so if you like what you see in our long gameplay video, it's certainly worth a look.

Before the page loaded up, and there was only the title, i tought your pc went kaput.

Didn't knew the title previously, really cool H-Life vibe going one with the prologue.

No PC is fine. It's struggling with the game but that's all thankfully. :)

I had seen this game a few times before on Steam, looks interesting.

Off-topic: Drift, you mentioned your CPU, a i9 9900K, which is currently 3 generations behind the i9-12900K. With the new generation being by a new architecture, Alder Lake, do you have any plans to upgrade your CPU? Same question for the GPU, you have a RTX 2080 Ti, so any plans for a RTX 3080 Ti or even a RTX 3090?

Since text has no nuance, this isn't implying anything - at all. If I had your PC, I would be singing with the biggest smile on my face. Just curious and wondering if you think it's time to upgrade, given the current consoles will keep driving new games to be more demanding on PC - not currently with mostly cross-gen games.

I know that to many people, this shouldn't be necessary - wholeheartly agree - and it's a complete waste of money, just wondering if you plan to upgrade soon, waiting for prices to lower dramatically or till your PC really starts struggling, which I believe shouldn't happen for the next 3-5 years?

Been kinda out of the whole CPU and GPU scene, since prices are so insanely high here in Brazil - a RTX 3080 Ti is 13.500 bucks!!! The price of a car or downpayment into buying a house... Truly wish I was joking, absolutely insane stuff. - that it's just depressing reading articles about new tech when you're so far behind and won't be able to upgrade any time soon.

Well, I don't intend to spend more money on my PC to be honest. I bought the i9 myself a few years ago but Gamersyde provided the GPU. Since any upgrade now would be on me, it's not something I'm thinking about because I simply don't have the money for that kind of things. davton has a more recent PC so he's usually in charge of the PC coverage now.

Moreover, my RTX has thermal paste problems (it started when the GPU was barely one year old...) so the fans go crazy in a matter of minutes when a game is demanding, even in 1440p now. That's why I don't enjoy playing on PC anymore anyway. I could try and replace it myself of course but if anything goes wrong and the GPU is ruined, I'll end up with none and I'll have broken something I don't own to matters worse. I clearly don't have the money to buy a new one (even though it's much "cheaper" than in Brazil), not that I would even find one to buy if I wanted to.

When gamers start spouting utter nonsense like "Elden Ring is UPLAYABLE on ps4" as i read in forums and the Beta rolled out, when the base game is perfectly the same norm of 1080p@30FPSw/framepacing as it was with Dark Souls 3&Bloodborne and being a more demanding game that the previous titles in a time where that experience was acceptable to most, man reading that is such bollocks.

I can understand the notion of moving on when the surge of Upgraded console versions, the next-gen versions, the new line of GPUs and thus letting people experience the "same" game with quadruple resolution, and double the frame-rate and with new flourishes, and getting spoiled by it for the upcoming games. But that will never mean the low version isn't as a valid experience as any of those, the mass populace has those type of hardware and should never be frowned upon for playing with them.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, everything's expensive right now, specially CPUs and GPUs because of chip shortage and the like. Thanks for heads up about davton's PC, gonna keep an eye out for his PC videos - alongside all other videos.

@nostradamus:

True. I play with the frame rate and/or resolution that works best with what I have. The experience is what matters, and as long as people get the full game and get to enjoy it, it doesn't matter what frame rate or resolution it uses.

So many games now offer the choice between frame rate and resolution with "Performance" and "Quality" modes, Ray-Tracing on or off, etc. No matter what option one plays with, everyone is experiencing the same game. The only thing that matters is if the game is good or not.

I plan to buy a AMD Navi 24 RDNA 2 card with 16 compute units at Q1 2022. Despite being an entry level card I doubt prices will be lower than 300 bucks :( I won't buy it for gaming but for Youtube 4K60 VP9/AV1 hardware decoding because my CPU is too slow for this task. Performance wise the card should have something about 5 TFLOPS.

@Driftwood: You say you PC is noisy but what should I say about my PS4 Pro ^^

Believe me, there is absolutely no way that it's as noisy as my RTX 2080 Ti. I've had noisy consoles but my GPU sounds like a commercial jet. :)
