Superhub3

Hi I have recently become a virgin media customer on the 350 gamer package and have the superhub 3. After a few days I have nothing but praise for this my ping is around 14. Isn’t there a concern with the intel puma cpu and after so many bad reviews why is this.

Re: Superhub3

Thank’s great advice that’s the reason I wanted a hub 2 instead of the 3 as it has such a bad press. It’s purely experimental I’m still well within my cooling off period but so far so good.

Re: Superhub3

It has some new firmware being tested/rolled out as far as im aware. This has reportedly fixed/lowered the puma 6 chipset issue

Re: Superhub3 pes18ps4

I know they have given it a firmware update but i thought it was floored internally, it has had such a bad press, I thought I would share my experience being so positive, if the firmware update has fixed most of these errors that’s great but it is early days been less than a week.

How much did VM pay you to say that.

£0.12 is the going rate (including VAT) for a sponsored message.

 

seems to be a few posters commenting that hub3 ping times are dropping.

Re: Superhub3

loooooool, after 9days I have noticed there being a higher ping, I rebooted hub and went back to being good again, I’m still in my trial period and don’t know if this is a concern. I have the option of taking a hub 2 or stick with the 3 I don’t mind rebooting hub every few days but could this cause problems in the future.

Re: Superhub3

After having the superhub 3 for a few weeks now I can honestly say, unless I factory reset every day it is absolutely useless for online gaming. Does anyone know why this fix’s it temporarily, and if I keep doing this will it cause me problems in the future I have an PS4 and play pes 18 thx.
