    A Christmas Gift: Intel Accuses Qualcomm of Stifling Competition

    I'm guessing this is over 5G chips since 5G is supposed to be an internet renaissance and Qualcom is holding all the chips. (Pun Intended)

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition 8 GB

    A second hand 1080TI is the best bet here. The features are nice for the 2080 but irrelevant since they aren't supported by anyone or they destroy your fps.

    NVIDIA: Don't Expect Base 20-Series Pricing to Be Available at Launch

    I canceled my 2080 pre order and bought a used 1080TI. Should be great for 1440p. After the 3dmark numbers and DLSS having to be baked into a game, I'm not going to pay nVidias R&D into ray tracing.

    NVIDIA GPUs Can be Tricked to Support AMD FreeSync

    If you look around WCCF Tech tried the trick and made a video about it, and it did actually work. What this tells me is that if Nvidia wanted to they could support both. I think they should and let the consumer choose Gsync or Freesync or maybe just a ULMB monitor.

    NVIDIA G-Sync HDR Module Adds $500 to Monitor Pricing

    Nvidia will be forced to pick up the Adaptive Sync standard and stop using an FPGA. HDMI 2.1 and consoles are now starting to use VRR. Nvidia responds with their Big TVs to play on but who wants to buy an OLED for movies and buy an over priced Nvidia TV for games. Samsung has already begun...

    Doesn't look like next gen Navi high end Radeon is coming to gamers anytime soon

    I think they will get back to gamers but they need money on the enterprise front first. Once they get the money on that front they can make a GPU to compete with NVidia. If they were to make a high end GPU now and even if it beat the 1080TI it would still sale like crap due to Gamer mind share...
