    Playstation 5 to have Ray-tracing on a hardware level

    Just so you know - that 5700XT sold out quickly for a reason...it was clearly a better deal than that old 1080....

    Playstation 5 to have Ray-tracing on a hardware level

    It's not as hard as you think to do both if you actually design the proper hardware.

    Do you think cryptocurrencies are the future?

    AMD Makes Gains in GPU Shipments in Q2-2019: Jon Peddie Research

    Why do I even poke my head into this fanboy den anymore? LOL wow. This clown (1) says you will always be happier with Nvidia, and then (2) compares AMD to AIDS (and nvidia to the flu?!). Sorry I am just blown away by how logical and open-minded these arguments are... I love your sources...

    AMD's Upcoming $750 Ryzen 9 3950X (16C, 32T) Shown Beating Intel's $2,000 i9-9980XE (18C, 36T)

    It's a blow to ALL of Intel's parts. I have noticed in my system (It is Intel) a performance regression over the past 12 months. That ~10% drop in my applications is actually VERY noticeable. What people don't seem to realize is that AMD is clearly still holding back some of their cards...

    MSI CEO: AMD Plans to Stop Being the Value Alternative, X570 Motherboards to be Expensive

    Someone didn't watch the Zen 2 reveal. I change none of those predictions - I stand by them. It's also hilarious how you call my Zen 3 prediction wrong when it isn't 2021 yet. My lord this website has turned into an Intel fanboy party.... It is truly perplexing how bad some people's...

    MSI CEO: AMD Plans to Stop Being the Value Alternative, X570 Motherboards to be Expensive

    Hopefully it is also a reality check to Intel Fanboys who called Infinity Fabric a "One Trick Pony" too..... Hahaha I am of course not holding my breath :rolleyes:

    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...
