Up For Debate - What Do You Want To See Explored In Up For Debate

Written by Jon Sutton on Wed, Sep 16, 2015 11:30 AM

Plenty of you have no doubt become familiar with Up For Debates here on GD, where we open up some of the biggest questions in gaming and PC hardware so we can all discuss our thoughts and share the knowledge of our amazing community around.

We’ve looked a big old stack of stuff, such as DDR4 memory, 21:9 ratio gaming, single player vs multiplayer, favourite web browsers, best gamepads and heaps more. This one though is a little different. This is an Up For Debate about Up For Debates.

We want to know some of the hottest issues you want to talk about. The contentious issues that you just want to see answered. Or the just plain interesting PC tech and hardware stuff you want to share with the rest of us here at GD.

The same goes if you want any questions answered, or there’s something out there’s still a mystery in the deepest, darkest corners of the internet. Let us know what it is and we’ll do our best to do some digging.

Over to you then, which of gaming's biggest questions do you want answered? Let us know in the comments section below!

I've noticed that Linux distos are never really mentioned in great detail here, and I would like to see what you guys can come up with on that. Between being able to have a home server, HTPC, streaming machine, there's so much you can do with Linux in general that really takes almost no CPU/GPU power.

I say more polls! I'd love to see one for preferred pc case size or something like that lol. Some people make these awesome micro atx builds while others have massive builds in stacked cases. I've always wondered what the majority of people prefer: small or large?

Yeah we need polls also to vote on companies in order to give them 10 stars

to be honest it boots fairly slow, X99 boots (from pushing button to displaying asus boot logo) noticeably slower than Z77, but who cares xD

Well hey mine boots fairly quick, but I still have to wait about 30 seconds until I can open and close things at full speed! I don't really care how fast my computer boots which is really why i haven't bit the bullet and got a small SSD for my OS yet.

What about what makes a game original and new? So many games are practically clones of older games and the rising army of re releases or "Ultimate Editions". Can new original games even be made now has the well of creativity been dried up? Thats just throwing my hat into the ring though.

I'd like to see the topic of Open world fatigue brought up I can't be the only one that is feeling a little too tired to be able to play all the open world games being brought out at the moment right?

Agree with you big time on that one, although I think it's plenty do with the repetitive actions that go into some of them more than anything else. The Ubisoft school of open world.

I would like to see people's comment on game streaming such as Nvidia Grid, Playstation TV, etc (I heard Apple TV also work on something?). Most people believe game streaming is the future of gaming.
Things to consider:



  • Cost vs performance vs quality

  • advantages (convenience?)/disadvantages (bandwidth requirement

vRAM performance. Is it better to have loads of vRAM or some super fast vRAM as HBM. What does a game actually need and where is the limit for GPU when it comes to onboard memory.

That's correct more GPU information along with CPUs and other components that are looked down upon

How about ranking the games in franchises you know?Like ranking the Assassin's Creeds and Call of Dutys and the Final Fantasies and the Dragon Age series etc?Or about comparing optimization and system requirements of the games released during an year?

sounds really intersting :)
but I guess it would be even more complicated to make "performance rating" for games when game engines are done different eating different resources...

I'd love to see some sophisticated "up for debate" article about PCI lanes,
it's quite a mess, Intel having those defined by cpu, AMD giving those by chipset, it would be particularly interesting to cover especially when incoming DX12 is supposed to efficiently use multiple graphics cards and so PCI lanes setup may become crucial factor when building PCs...
