     I read they've recently teamed up with AMD to put Radeon tech into their mobile devices...

    “AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced a multi-year strategic partnership in ultra low power, high performance mobile graphics IP based on AMD Radeon graphics technologies. As part of the partnership, Samsung will license AMD graphics IP and will focus on advanced graphics technologies and solutions that are critical for enhancing innovation across mobile applications including smartphones.”

    Ben Lang from RoadtoVR


    Index headphones are so good... compared to Quest and Rift S it’s like the difference between a 4:3 SDTV and a 16:9 HDTV. The floating design is also genius. You don’t even know you’re ‘wearing’ headphones.

    You think everything is better than an Oculus product though, so doesn't count for much. I mean... you even think your Pimax 8K is giving you 4K per eye, despite math and science telling you otherwise!
    I didn’t realise you thought I was Ben from RoadtoVR.

    When someone is trying to attacking the messenger instead of the message, it usually means they are running out of valid counter arguments. Or they'r just not being very nice and a trying to create drama..

    Some people intentionally seek out negative messages that suit their agenda, because they have run out of valid positive contributions. Or they're just not being very nice and trying to create drama... under a second account after their first account was banned for the same behavior.

    Whether @ParadoxAnomaly is Atmos or not @Techy111 he has been well behaved in this thread at least. However some have constantly attacked and tried to goad him into arguments.

    If you decide to ban him then that is of course up to you but until then, people should be warned for attacking him after every comment. Personally I am a great believer in redemption.

    I read that like being only about GearVR, not PCVR. The info has been available for about a week and has kept me from buying GearVR for my new Samsung S10+ phone. Maybe I'll get some GearVR anyway, but I'm not happy about supporting phoneVR, so this it soooo difficult for me :#  :D

    Yeah maybe you are right, they only launched the Plus last October, I just read this bit 'In short: Samsung has more AR/VR products coming down the pipeline.'  

    However I reckon the HP Reverb is going to take a big bite out of their market share, there is certainly a demand for high spec HMD with better tracking. Can WMR support more cameras or is it fixed to just two in the software side?

    If ongoing investigations get concluded then mr atmo.....sorry paradox, will be banned immediately ok ? If he came here under a different user name and redeemed himself by apologising or whatever then that's another matter. But no.....stealth mode it is, cowardly imo

    Either way of your personal feelings, you should either ban him or uphold the forum rules.

    Atmos and I recently got in to an argument on the AV Forums (in recent weeks) and he rallied to get me banned from there. I am giving him somewhat of a hard time as a way of saying "thanks!" Coupled with the fact that it is very much against the forum rules to create a new account after being banned. If he wants to post again, then he should do the proper thing and request that his Atmos account get unbanned. Instead, he is masquerading as someone else while actively refusing to admit that it is him even though we all know it at this point.

    As for him being goaded... it was Atmos who started goading me when he became active with his new Account:

    I know your bias hit you hard when you pre-ordered the Index, but you may want to check your facts first.

    Just because you now favor his viewpoints doesn't mean he is actually being well-behaved. He is still focusing all his attention on negative Oculus rhetoric:



    If you decide to ban him then that is of course up to you but until then, people should be warned for attacking him after every comment.

    Again, check your facts. I only started paying attention to this "Paradox" account because he started singling me out when he became active. And my comments to him hardly qualify as an attack. If anything, you should probably have been warned several times for abandoning the actual topic and continuously making things personal.


    Personally I am a great believer in redemption.

    You might want to look up the definition of "redemption" before you base your belief system around it. Redemption doesn't happen under a fake identity. If Atmos wants redemption, then he should come clean. Any semblance of "good behavior" under his Paradox account is only the result of him trying to fool people in to believing it's not really him. Which is getting harder to do since he seems to be having a hard time controlling himself lately.

    I'm sure he appreciates your support though. I didn't realize that pre-ordering Index came with a Pro-Atmos T-Shirt! You wear it well lol

    I would also say the rules should especially apply to people who have attacked been a pain in the arse to at least 4 people in this thread.

    Using the word "attack" simply because you disagree with an opinion is a bit silly. But if you really feel attacked, then instead of derailing the thread, just send a PM to the Mods. There's a process for that stuff. So far, you have been the most consistent poster in this thread who derails by abandoning the topic entirely and making things personal.

    Here's a good example of a personal attack you launched:

    As I said if the moderators are sure it is him and they wish to ban him then just do it. Otherwise until proven or he acts in the same way, a user should be afforded the same rules as any other user. 

    It is particularly annoying when we are trying to discuss the index (in the index post) and some people are constantly trying to start old arguments.

    It can't be proven so on that basis there never will be a ban.

    It took 3 years of constant low level baiting with occasional blatant rule braking to eventually result in a ban here. If it takes another 3 years to end up in the same conclusion again, then be prepared for 3 years of the kind of old arguments that you're objecting to.

    It is highly probable it is Atmos, it would be funny if it actually was somebody else who decided to go along with it for a laugh. However so far the only disruption I have seen is people personally attacking him. I have not been in every thread though.

    It appears Open Season has been granted though, so I wouldn't worry about my opinion.
  • DaftnDirectDaftnDirect Posts: 5,391 Volunteer Moderator
    It may appear open season... but it took 3 seasons to arrive at this point.
