    Yet Another Speculative Malfunction: Intel Reveals New Side-Channel Attack, Advises Disabling Hyper-Threading Below 8th, 9th Gen CPUs

    Yeah after all of the constant Security Vulnerabilities... you decided to buy Intel again. What a "smart" decision...

    AMD Outsells Intel 2:1 on European Retailer Mindfactory.de

    I have actually noticed an odd thing with the Steam survey though - I am never asked to take it on my AMD systems, and yet my Nvidia systems are constantly bugging me to take the latest survey. I suspect Nvidia installs something with new drivers that checks the "take steam survey" box so they...

    AMD Outsells Intel 2:1 on European Retailer Mindfactory.de

    Anyone who thinks AMD is just gonna sit around is in for a rude awakening. Zen 3 is rumored to bring another 10-15% performance increase while cutting energy usage in half AGAIN. Keep in mind that will be stacking on top of what Zen 2 is bringing. Zen 2 is going to increase IPC by 20%...

    AMD to Simultaneously Launch 3rd Gen Ryzen and Unveil Radeon "Navi" This June

    Right because rendering geometry is all that is involved in games. sigh. The lack of creativity some people have. Then jog on, your input isn't needed here. Some people would like to not be held back by people who think PC's are only used for Fortnight and linear shooters with the same dumb...

    AMD to Simultaneously Launch 3rd Gen Ryzen and Unveil Radeon "Navi" This June

    You missed the part where he highlighted the substantially higher AVX clocks on Rome...didn't you? Or you know - the obviously impressive fact that Rome is doubling core count at the same TDP without sacrificing clockspeed. Jesus it's insane people are just ignoring that incredible engineering...

    AMD to Simultaneously Launch 3rd Gen Ryzen and Unveil Radeon "Navi" This June

    Their CPU's are on top, they have been capturing notable marketshare in an uphill battle for the past 2 years. Ryzen 3000 will be a decimation event. I am continually perplexed by the ridiculous notion that companies shouldn't make their older products obsolete. Yeah, I know Intel sold quad...

    AMD Says Not to Count on Exotic Materials for CPUs in the Next Ten Years, Silicon Is Still Computing's Best Friend

    Sorry, I almost spilled my drink laughing when you mentioned Quantum Computers. If you think non-silicon chips are taking too long to show up (I somewhat agree), then you better not be waiting for anything useful from Quantum. At least we know that we will move past silicon eventually, but...

    Dell Ends up Leaking Mobile GTX 1660 Ti Trying to Refute RTX 2050 "Typo"

    Well there you go lol - that is indeed what it was initially planned to be. Nvidia is now selling xx50-class GPU's for xx60 Ti prices. Hahaha it's just so sad...

    AMD Partners Cut Pricing of Radeon RX Vega 56 to Preempt GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

    Unless they were dumb enough to buy a bulky gsync monitor...then they are still forced to get only a green option. And it smells like a lot of people here swore a blood oath to green a long time ago lol. It was already close to $300 honestly, and V56 was always selling out quickly at those...

    AMD Partners Cut Pricing of Radeon RX Vega 56 to Preempt GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

    I feel like I keep seeing more and more illogical arguments from fanboys on here. Just don't bother talking to someone complaining that Freesync stopped working at 48Hz while gaming at 165Hz lol.

    Intel Rolls Out the 4 GHz Pentium Gold G5620 Processor

    God you Intel fanboys would defend a literal turd if it came in a blue box lol. $100 for a dual core with a horrific iGPU (which DOES matter at this price range), but at least it comes in a blue box right? You could instead get the superior 200E, or for $90 get an actual quad core (You know...

    Metro Exodus Benchmark Performance, RTX & DLSS

    There is no point in trying to reason with that guy lol. He thinks Infinity Fabric is a failure... and in fact he thinks he is so right that he doesn't see the folly in people who disagree with him in his signature.

    Metro Exodus Packaging Appears, Steam Logo Simply Hidden Under A Sticker

    Well the problem also is I just don't need more games right now too - so if one game I might want screws something up... too bad. I am busy playing ACO and BFV, and I still need to play through the rest of God of War. After that I have Doom 2016 and The Last Guardian. After ALL OF THAT, I...

    Metro Exodus Packaging Appears, Steam Logo Simply Hidden Under A Sticker

    Man I am sorry but that just is stupid. The funny thing is my immediate reaction was "Who cares, Steam isn't that great," but this is really turning full-on stupid. It's like one of those situations where you know you were "right" before everyone learned the majority of the info, but once the...

    Metro Exodus Benchmark Performance, RTX & DLSS

    "NVIDIA DLSS is a new form of anti-aliasing which renders the game at reduced resolution, upscales it, and then fills in the details using a pre-trained AI network... We are a bit puzzled though, why NVIDIA is limiting the use of DLSS in some ways that make little sense. For example, you can...
