    *The Official PlayStation 5 (PS5) Thread*

    Had mine delivered fine yesterday from Amazon, but am rather disappointed by the amount of bugs/issues. firstly I’ve had what sounds like a fairly common issue where it won’t update games, refused to update. Then when I took the disc out, it deleted the whole bloody game from the installation...

    Upgrade ~£1,400 base hardware budget - 3900X + 2070 SUPER?

    Will keep eye out as it may be early May that I end up buying stuff anyway (depends if/when I get furloughed!)

    Upgrade ~£1,400 base hardware budget - 3900X + 2070 SUPER?

    Wow, that's pretty bad! Sounds safer to stay with the X570 Aorus Elite - no wonder the MSI was discounted...

    Upgrade ~£1,400 base hardware budget - 3900X + 2070 SUPER?

    Am I going overkill on my motherboard, or is that one to go for? Just trying to figure out what I'd actually lose out on if I saved £50 and went down to: My basket at Overclockers UK: 1 x Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE (AMD AM4) DDR4 X570 Chipset ATX Motherboard= £209.99 1 x MSI X570-A PRO (AMD...

    Upgrade ~£1,400 base hardware budget - 3900X + 2070 SUPER?

    Thanks Grimley - I had just seen the cheaper RAM - think I failed on the search. Excuse my ignorance - AIO [after googling] would be water cooling? If the stock cooler fits in with everything else - I can make do - and expand to a new case if I really need it. Having looked at a bit more on...

    Upgrade ~£1,400 base hardware budget - 3900X + 2070 SUPER?

    Hello - have not ventured into the PC building hobby for a long time and therefore I'm completely out of touch - so forgive me if I've made any major jumps in assumptions. I'm looking for a fairly sizeable upgrade / new build Main requirements: - Capable of running Half-Life: Alyx on...

    Need recommendations for a new car

    As you’re JLR (like me) - what about Evoque? I’ve found LR dealerships better than Jag ones generally. You can get R-Dynamic S D180 for about £310/month with similar deposit for 3yr, though probably not got everything you want, can get HSE for less than £400 - would rather that than an F-PACE...

    WLTP has hit

    Depends on the car, but the fleet figures are averages, so that’s why you’re going to be seeing more and more PHEV and BEV cars to bring those averages down with 0g/km and circa 50g/km PHEVs. Or you do a FIAT and just but all fleet compliance from Tesla and not have to bother! Cheaper to pay...

    WLTP has hit

    If you have just one car - with 2 power train choices, at maximum you’d end up doing 2 interpolation groups, still are a lot of tests to get the data to interpolate (high, low, 14 degC, DPF regen). So long as certain criteria are met, cars with common power train architectures fall in same...

    WLTP has hit

    In UK, it doesn’t need to be stated - it’s not very consistent across the industry - NEDC is still the basis of taxation in UK for at least next year until the government figure out how to do new tax baes on WLTP. All their new cars now will be WLTP compliant and tested, just you’d have to ask...

    WLTP has hit

    So the bookends are tested purely so you basically have a Y = mx + c gradient interpolation for your car. So the Y axis is CO2, X axis are the bookend cars represented by their roadload (i.e. weight, aerodynamics properties and tyres, converted into an energy demand in Joules). So when an...

    WLTP has hit

    This information is wrong too. By no means do they have to test EVERY Tyre, Option, or even every model. It’s a complex, long winded process, can’t deny that - but it does its best to simplify it. Basically cars are split into families based on common criteria (same engine, gearbox etc), and...

    Show Us Your Motors!

    Bah, silly phone - pic shouldn't have come out that bad! It needs a good clean already so will bring in more pics. I did it over on the Coventry Guy Salmon. This particular offer was a quirk of the PCP calculation that made it work - when you work it through it was only a 10% off list price...

    Show Us Your Motors!

    Took delivery of my Velar other week - sad to get rid of my Cayman, but deal was too good to really miss out on: only get to keep the car for 12 months, but it’s only £350 deposit and £298.50 for 11 months - good old company discount! It’s a P250 HSE R-Dynamic, so plenty of toys and isn’t too...

    Is there any truth in this? WLTP and a glut of cars next month

    It's in place from yesterday, and has been for certain types of cars since September 2017, but we're in transition period so UK wont start caring from a taxation for a couple more years.

    Is there any truth in this? WLTP and a glut of cars next month

    Majority of car makers will have been ready for WLTP over the last 12 months. VW group have the biggest problem - big chunk of their cars aren’t available to order, and those that can be ordered are going to be the ones that likely sell the most. You still can’t order a new Porsche, or new A5...

    Road Tripping in the USA!

    I'd found those pages - and as b0rn2sk8 said - the snow pack is very high, so I'll be back in the UK before any chance of that clearing I think! I'm leaning towards keeping my Bishop booking or cancelling it and going as far as Mammoth lakes (seems to still be open around there), then have a...

    Road Tripping in the USA!

    Feeling rather silly - so looks like I've kinda mucked up some of the route for my trip in early May - I had very wrongly assumed the Yosemite bit would be much more open than it is - but clearly most of the closures can go well in to June. So at the moment, I've got a 2 day window to get from...

    Road Tripping in the USA!

    Perhaps my expectation for tethering was a little too high - we only really need 3G to get by - am mostly thinking for things like using Uber, or finding details while out away from hotels etc. The T-Mobile one may be a good shout as our first stop isn't too far away from a store. Else may...
