    AMD Announces Radeon RX 5700 Based on Navi: RDNA, 7nm, PCIe Gen4, GDDR6

    Ray-Tracing is beyond simplifying game development in the way you like to believe. It takes ages and ages to achieve similar level of accuracy with traditional rendering techniques; especially in open world and more complex games thus in reality, you're never going to see RT level of realism and...

    AMD Announces Radeon RX 5700 Based on Navi: RDNA, 7nm, PCIe Gen4, GDDR6

    The Radeon VII is using HBM2 which is so much more efficient than the GDDR6 memory on Nvidia cards .(Uses around 30-35W less power if i'm not mistaken) You're comparing Graphics Cards to Graphics Cards, not a GPU with another one.

    AMD Announces Radeon RX 5700 Based on Navi: RDNA, 7nm, PCIe Gen4, GDDR6

    25% IPC increase over Vega is more than what Nvidia achieved with Turing over Pascal But keep in mind Nvidia did claim turing shaders are 50% faster which turned out to be bullshit, at least for today's software; same thing can happen to AMD's claims. Nvidia is so architecturally ahead that even...

    AMD "Navi" Features 8 Streaming Engines, Possible ROP Count Doubling?

    It doesn't even need that much knowledge to understand these simple facts. Just looking at benchmarks and comparing AMD cards to their Nvidia rivals in different resolutions is enough. AMD generally puts more bandwidth on their cards simply because they can't compete head to head and need more...

    GPU Test System Update May 2019

    It's really hard to push over the memory budget and make an 8GB card stutter related to that; that's why I said rarely useful and not useless.

    GPU Test System Update May 2019

    I think average framerate in a demanding scene is much better than too much focusing on Lows. 1% and 0.1 lows can be just a random stutter during gameplay that can happen on any GPU. When I'm benchmarking myself I see terrible 0.1 lows on some games and based on that you'd think the experience...

    U.S. Tech Industry, Including Google, Microsoft, Intel, and Qualcomm, Ban Huawei

    I'm living in Iran and at least in my country that's not the case. Belief in Islam is getting weaker and weaker here but of course the government doesn't like to show the truth.

    RAGE 2 Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    Dear Nvidia, for the love of god put more bandwidth on your bloody cards. I'm sure with a wider memory bus "almost" all Nvidia cards could perform 10~ percent better at 4K. Vega 56 beating the 1080 at 4K is purely due to the bandwidth limitations.

    AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast

    Who the hell cares about the JEDEC standards? Overclocking the memory is as easy as drinking water.

    AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast

    It's the matter of workload and also memory support will be improved. Assuming that the X570 boards may be supporting up to 4000MHz of speed, that's still plenty of bandwidth for plenty of workloads. And even if you're memory bandwidth bound in a specific application, it's not like it wouldn't...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    Why RX? RX means R10 and it makes sense as the successor of the R9. It should be called R11 (RXI).

    Possible Listings of AMD Ryzen 9 3800X, Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600X Surface in Online Stores

    300€? What are you talking about? I'm not living in your country. 8600K can be clocked 1.2GHz higher than a 8400, 1.2GHz is a lot of MHz, you know.

    Your 9700K is 3x as fast as my CPU? I'm gonna kill myself.

    What games? My 8600K at 4.9GHz paired with a GTX 1080 that is pushed to its limits barely keeps the framerate above 60FPS in AC Odyssey, how do you get 200FPS on every game?

    Nope, it's not the only way, it however might be the only worthwhile way.
