    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Tested on Z490 Platform With Resizable BAR (AMD's SAM) Enabled

    I don't know if it's a game issue or AMD driver issue, but I would assume they did the test in borderless as the game is very insistent in using that mode (at least it does for me). As to why having SAM on made a difference (assuming they used borderless both times), is that there is some...

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Tested on Z490 Platform With Resizable BAR (AMD's SAM) Enabled

    It's because RDR2 will stutter every once in a while when playing in window borderless mode. In full screen, Vulkan does not have this issue and DX does not have this issue in either mode.

    Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU Benchmarked: Up to 22% Faster Compared to the Previous Generation

    My point, and yours, is on what we're referring to as the results. I think you're splitting a hair by calling a benchmark result (i.e. the final number) "interpretation". While you do not seem to think that and the way the final number is tallied is an interpretation of the individual tests...

    Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU Benchmarked: Up to 22% Faster Compared to the Previous Generation

    Yet you said (originally) that they have not changed the results, which they have and which is my point. The output score of a benchmark is not normally referred to as an "interpretation". It's normally referred to as the result. What is done with the final score is the interpretation part as...

    Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU Benchmarked: Up to 22% Faster Compared to the Previous Generation

    But they have by the very quote I used in my last post. Why are you trying to make a distinction where there is not one?

    Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU Benchmarked: Up to 22% Faster Compared to the Previous Generation

    Actually they do say it's about the tests: "Here you see that the previous rating was split with 60% of the score being tests of quad-core level performance, while the single-core comes in at 30% and higher than quad-core labeled 'multi-core' being 10%. Now we move right and find that the...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080/3090 Founders Edition Sales Limited to BestBuy in the US

    What is it? 3 months from production until Nvidia has actual chips? Sounds like they got enough chips to beat the AMD launch. I suggest that the reason Nvidia did this was so they could change more for their cards. Since AMD would be at parity given the same cards and would not sell for as...

    Microsoft Releases Flight Simulator Patch Improving Performance By 10%

    It's not DX12 because the game was not originally designed by Microsoft and, if I remember correctly, was originally began before DX12 even came out.

    Intel DG2 Discrete Xe Graphics Block Diagram Surfaces

    Intel has never been serious about 3D. They weren't the last time they did a discrete card and I don't expect anything to change because it would require a change in the corporate culture.

    Intel DG2 Discrete Xe Graphics Block Diagram Surfaces

    Anyone old enough to remember that Intel's last foray in to graphics was a joke. I expect nothing different this time (if it actually materializes of which I'm very doubtful).

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Unboxing & Preview

    @Wizzard Has nVidia stated if the 12 pin connector is some how different from the molex connector 0430251200? It appears to be keyed the same too. https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/molex/0430251200/WM1788-ND/252501

    Then it's a region thing because it says it's not available in the US. Or my browser is being weird.
