    Anthem VIP Demo Benchmarked on all GeForce RTX & Vega Cards

    I wouldn't take any of these results seriously. By the time Anthem releases I bet both AMD and Nvidia will have a driver release that will improve performance. The VIP demo is not even using the gold build of the game (apparently it is using a 6+ week old build). I'd love a proper performance...

    NVIDIA "Pascal" and AMD "Vega" Graphics Card Prices Sizzle Stateside

    I bought a PowerColor RX Vega 64 a couple months ago for $489.99, yes, $489.99 (at a local MicroCenter). I traded it to a local guy for a brand new 1080 Ti, a straight trade, thinking I got a heck of a deal (considering i'm not into mining even the slightest bit). This fella had then acquired...

    AMD Second-generation Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" Confirmed to Support AM4

    I gotta disagree with ya there. If you're a fan of FreeSync and are familiar with how AMD does their drivers (performance gains over time), then the Vega cards are pretty good cards (At their normal pricing). Both Vega 56 and 64 are good buys at $399 and $499, especially if you have a FreeSync...

The best one might be the steelseries sensei original, but that was usurped by many other optical sensors. Optical is the only way to go...

    All Hail a Forerunner of Social Media, AOL Instant Messenger (1997-2017)

In all honestly, without AOL, I would have never gotten to know my wife. Thank god for AOL. Does anyone still remember their ICQ login numbers...
