    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    Performs well, but nVidia wanged out with the prices. Also can't help but wonder how much better they would have been on 10nm? Lower power usage and higher clocks? Ten to twenty percent more performance?

    If they do, it needs to be Generals 2

    Battlefield 1 On Sale for €4.99, Free Premium Pass Download

    I bit. Don't mind Origin. I do mind that EA has destroyed the Sim City, Command & Conquer, Medal of Honor, and Need for Speed (somewhat) series for me, though...

    Is Sandy Bridge Still viable ?

    For you, a SB CPU would still be a viable upgrade for a reasonable price, but probably worth throwing down a bit more for an Ivy Bridge. If you're lucky enough to find one, you may find a motherboard which supports NVMe booting on LGA 1155/2011 (as others here have shown). With a PCIe to M.2...

    Intel Gags Customers from Publishing Performance Impact of Microcode Updates

    So they want to stop customers helping the end-user be able to make smart, intelligent and educated decisions regarding their purchase? To know which product will best suit their needs? Which product offers the best value for their money? Or to give them a fair and honest metrics for comparison...

    NVIDIA Releases First Internal Performance Benchmarks for RTX 2080 Graphics Card

    From what I understood from the reveal is that Nvidia will process each game in their labs for the deep learning/AI training. The resulting DLSS profile for each title will then be delivered through driver updates. I could be wrong, though.

    NVIDIA Releases First Internal Performance Benchmarks for RTX 2080 Graphics Card

    Let's wait for some figures regarding 2080 vs 1080 without all the tensor/RT features. This more 'raw' comparison is what will really show the performance of the new generation, not the cherry-picked FPS scores which shows off the tech in the new cards. Looking at the FLOPs of the 20 series...

    NVIDIA Settles Next-Gen GeForce Naming Confusion: It's GTX 2080 (or RTX 2080?)

    Perhaps it's a throwback? Riva TNT eXtreme anyone? :laugh:

    Sony Closely Associated with AMD "Navi" Development

    You would struggle to, in my honest opinion, particularly if you were aiming to buy all new components for warranty purposes. I believe you under estimate how powerful the console refreshes (XOX/PS4P) are. Say XOX GPU is most similar to a RX580; that GPU alone is $450AU. So building a computer...

    Sony Closely Associated with AMD "Navi" Development

    It's the budget I'm getting at - a console puts out very respectable performance for a rather small investment. Can't speak for the PS4, but most Xbox One X games have different performance modes. The 1080p modes are very, very good quality and you won't get that from a similarly priced PC...

    Sony Closely Associated with AMD "Navi" Development

    That is true, but you can't compare them to a $150 GPU as consoles often employ various tricks and techniques to provide a higher level of fidelity and when gaming at two, three or more meters from a TV, you probably wouldn't notice as much difference while engrossed by the game. And sure, if...

    Sony Closely Associated with AMD "Navi" Development

    On-going service cost are definitely something to consider, but really not a huge cost. Look at it this way; I spend $65AU a year on a XBL subscription. Some quick maths and that comes to $650 over 10 years. That would barely buy an i5-8500, a decent MB and 16GB of RAM, let alone everything else...

    Sony Closely Associated with AMD "Navi" Development

    He has a point though. For the cost of roughly what you'd for an upper mid-range GPU you'll get an entire system capable of running up to 4K. A system that is pretty guaranteed to run any game released on the platform. And with the way they're going with the architecture (like we've seen with...
