Sword and Sword Sense Controller Update
More refined samples have been produced and we are down to minor modifications. We expect all mods to be completed for the Sword controller by the end of April. The Sword and Sword sense share a large number of both electrical and housing components so while we are fully focused on the Sword we will be able to quickly focus efforts on the Sense version once Sword is completed.
Occasional Screen blackout Issue under investigation
Some members of our community have reported random screen blackouts usually 2-3 seconds when running at 90Hz on the 8KX. We are currently investigating this and are sorry this is occurring for anyone who’s gaming experience is affected.
Please Note: There is anecdotal evidence from a community member that this may be either related to Overclocked GPU’s or the Pitool Brightness setting (or a combination of both). While we investigate you can try removing your overclock settings to normal and reducing the brightness level in Pitool to see if this improves or eliminates your issue.
