It comes with an ear tips earbuds, so soft that when pull it out from your ear, it creates a plucks sound (may na na). When wearing it, you can barely hear the sound outside your environment, allowing you to focus in the game without distraction.

For wear and tear, it comes with free extra ear tips earbuds. You can replace it anytime in case you damage or tear from prolong use.

This is the packaging, it looks generic, showing the PUBG cast and labeled it with "BATT ROUNDS".

You can actually install Crysis 3 directly on RTX 3090 VRAM as Storage

Someone just installed Crysis 3 directly on their NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 VRAM using a software card VRAMdrive (GPU RAM Drive). And the result is outstanding, at a 4K very high settings, good FPS and super fast load.

NVIDIA's RTX 3090 has a total of 24GB or a usable of 20,434MB according to GPU-Z reports, in a Linux system you can utilize these VRAM as general purpose RAM disk. In Windows, there is available utility that is called GpuRamDrive that has the same function as in linux, it is now available at Github (https://github.com/prsyahmi/GpuRamDrive).

A user named @Strife212, posted his adventure on Twitter on how he installs Crysis 3 in his Graphics Card. Basically, he partitioned the available 24GB VRAM on RTX 3090 into two separate variants. 10GB VRAM for the graphics card and the remaining 15GB for the storage (Drive R:). Despite utilizing all of the VRAM, the GPU load still remains at 40% without hiccup. "At 4K very high settings get good fps and the game loads very fast – GPU-Z reports total VRAM use 20434MB", he said.

Since RTX 3090 is utilizing the PCIe 4.0, the load times of the games will be similar to an NVME M.2 SSD drive which gives up to 5GB/s read speed. The same technology used in PS5 and XBOX Series that enable their games to render in-game assets at real-time.

What do you think of this experiment? Will you take risk and try it when you get an RTX 3090? Or you're going to use it as a storage for storing secret files? Let us know in the comment section.

"It's actually surprising because at some point in our relationship, we both realized that we're both into video games and that we've actually played these games even before we met each other," she says. "I remember when we first heard about Ragnarok coming to mobile, I was like 'I loved this game in high school!' and Mikael could not believe it because it was also a game he played back then."

Animal Crossing in Lockdown and FoodPanda

Since lockdown started, Megan also started spending time playing Animal Crossing on her Nintendo Switch. Since this game requires grinding and needs some refreshing foods, a recent favorite order of her from foodpanda is the steak burrito with cheese.
