    First Benchmarks, CPU-Z Screenshots of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 32-core CPU Surface

    I personally hope that intel and amd reach a gentlemens agreement to keep core counts at a limit on the consumer and hedt platforms, let your architectures fight it out, more ipc and even more clocks exponentially increases multi threaded performance

    NVIDIA Joins S&P 100 Stock Market Index

    yeah nah got a bit carried away calling everyone a peasant but the majority of my point stands how is nvidia doomed, the competition certainly wont be its downfall, heck nvidia punches on with intel and amd, i can see another recession hurting them but they likely have the funds to survive...

    First Benchmarks, CPU-Z Screenshots of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 32-core CPU Surface

    Dead on, if we as consumers start losing single threaded performance in exchange for cores we all lose, just look at the xeon phi 64 core (not as a future hedt cpu but as an anology for what the car war could turn into). No one wins when single core starts going down as most apps would take 8...

    NVIDIA Joins S&P 100 Stock Market Index

    i dont understand why everyone talks smack about nvidia, as far as im concerned RTG is more scummy, vega 64 for how much? AIBs when? Chernobyl to power it? Nvidia is crushing it in AI, deep learning, proffessional content creation and finally the gaming sector, they deserve to be on top. Numbers...

    PowerColor Radeon RX Vega 56 Nano Hands-on

    this is a stupid launch from amd, they will possibly lose money from these products, an rx 580 refresh would have made them more money, and they desperately need to make more money, zen gave them momentum dont waste the money they made from that on a gpu that will perform like an overclocked...

    NVIDIA GTX 1080-successor By Late-July

    NVIDIA GTX 1080-successor By Late-July

    actually probably not, im pretty sure turing is volta without fp64, fp16 and tensor. Volta was highly different to both maxwell/pascal. It featured a proper hardware scheduler for the first time since fermi i believe. If tuned properly it will allow for full async support and should help out...

    NVIDIA Allegedly Working on GeForce GTX 1050 with 3GB Memory

    The reason the 960 was so slow was indirectly the memorys fault, with maxwell memory controllers are tied to rops, i would say that a lack of rops is to blame for its slowness, and since the memory controller was tied to the rops thats why people generally say that memory slowed the 960, it had...

    AMD Teases Its 7 nm Vega Instinct Accelerator - Data-Pushing Silicon Deployed

    they would make more money from nvidia so of course they have 7nm, just like how they had all the hbm2 even though they were late to the hbm party, im pretty sure they even backed micron yet samsung gave them the hbm supply they needed
