    A Sprinkle of Salt: AMD Radeon VII Reported to Only be Available in Reference Design, no Custom Treatment

    I missed the point when nVidia lovered price on 1050Ti. That "price war" you mentioned. Fair enough, but it's been months since mining craze was over.

    A Sprinkle of Salt: AMD Radeon VII Reported to Only be Available in Reference Design, no Custom Treatment

    What price war? And while we are at it, how did price war of 1050Ti vs RX 570 (which is what, 1.5 times faster?) go? Rumor had it that AMD prepared that mostly for PR purposes, just to be able to tick off "we are present in that perf bracket too" and other than that product wasn't that viable...

    Radeon VII Lacks Full FP64 Compute Capabilities Available to Instinct MI60

    Because disabling features in enterprise card makes it a gamer card... wow, such a brilliant reasoning, you should not be doing that for free, ask for money before commenting.

    Hands On with a Pack of RTX 2060 Cards

    Ever growing margins of NVDA need to come from somewhere.

    AMD Radeon VII Detailed Some More: Die-size, Secret-sauce, Ray-tracing, and More

    Except we have seen newer games use more RAM (and with consoles beefed up and pushing 4 it will be a given), and god knows if RT will be anything, but "nvidia paid us to implement it, so here is that gimmick for ya" until RT could be run by the masses and as for DLSS, its usefulness is arguable...

    AMD Radeon VII Detailed Some More: Die-size, Secret-sauce, Ray-tracing, and More

    Because "lack of tensor cores" (who the hell needs them in gaming) and elusive "RT stuff" (how many games support it, one?) is so important to highlight when talking about AMD product.

    AMD Radeon VII Detailed Some More: Die-size, Secret-sauce, Ray-tracing, and More

    WCC level of speculations in an article that in essence highlights what nVidia would like to highlight about VegaVII vs 2080. How do things of that kind work, do authors of these texts simply root for nVidia, do they come from Huang's headquarters, are they somehow censored by NV's PR team...

    AMD Announces the Radeon VII Graphics Card: Beats GeForce RTX 2080

    They went with old arch, doubling ROPs and dropping some CUs and that alone got them basically perf/chip size parity. Nobody knows power consumption figures at this point.

    AMD Radeon VII Hands On at CES 2019

    Oh, shut the hell up. They positioned it right where "extreme" edition of Pentium (a slower CPU) was. Even Intel is not as greedy as nvidia, let alone AMD.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang on Radeon VII: "Underwhelming (...) the Performance is Lousy"; "Freesync Doesn't Work"

    Great to see analysts with insights posting on this forum. Would you mind to elaborate on Nv stock turbulence?

    AMD Announces the Radeon VII Graphics Card: Beats GeForce RTX 2080

    331 mm² Vega 7 vs 545 mm² 2080. It ain't that bad, if you think about it. I recall 1060 was "much faster" than 480.

    AMD Radeon VII Hands On at CES 2019

    That what it actually is, MI card with up to 4 faulty CUs. And it doesn't even have gsync! Lovely that veryone understands what 2080's performance actually is, now that AMD announced V7.... /grins

    Samsung Unveils The Future of Displays with Groundbreaking Modular Micro LED Technology at CES

    Why not? It surely is cheaper to compose bigger screens like that, the way it works with CPU chips.

    2019 LG Gram 17-inch and 14-inch MacBook Air Rivals Pictured

    13" spectre (and to some point, Envy) series of HP look much cooler than Mac's to me. And meh at Intel only.
