Nice.  I bet you are going to jump into Control right away.  I have that queued up.  Just a little bit into Witcher 3 right now.

Yeah, Control is high on the list! I tried running it on my 1080 and the 1080 was having none of it. lol

Of course, Assassin's Creed Viking Murderhobo is out now, too...

I played about half of the first AC, it was ok but boring.  I have never played any of the others.  I heard one is really good but there a like a zillion of them now.

Witcher 3 -> Control.  After that I will probably want to play either Cyberpunk or Baldur's Gate.

AC Odyssey was awesome. I never cared for any of the ones I played before that.

Witcher 3 I had fun with for a while. I doubt I'll go back to it, though. I hate Geralt as a protagonist.

Cyberpunk woo! Assuming it doesn't get delayed AGAIN, I'll be on that next month.

Baldur's Gate, of course, I've already played to death... Now just to wait for the actual/finished game to release. I'm guessing a year or so. What they have is act 1, with a level cap of 4, takes about 20-25 hours to go through if you do everything.

Yeah, Geralt is a bit flat, but the game is still pretty great and is gorgeous, even without ray tracing.

I guess I will have to get AC Odyssey at some point.  I think my main game is going to Cyberpunk.  I will get it after Control and Witcher.  I didn't realize that the full release of Baldur's Gate was that far off.  Hell, at that pace D4 might be out.

Ha...I had the same feeling. Until it was in my hands I wasn't sure.

Control.

Then see how tomb raider looks with the ray tracing on.

And then Iíll probably just be back to playing AC Valhalla.

I'll take it. Double the score from previous set up.

Control at max settings with max ray tracing, 1440p, 100+ fps.

Horizon Zero Dawn benchmark:

Old.
New.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider:

With old system, normal detail, medium ray tracing: 52 FPS avg, dipping to mid-20s.
With new GPU, max settings, high ray tracing: 95 FPS avg, dipping to mid-70s minimum.

Sweet. :D
