    CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX Memory Breaks 5000MHz Barrier on AMD Ryzen Processors

    I bought DDR3 2400MHz CL11 six years ago which was cheap and popular in 2013. now after six years you can buy DDR4 3200MHz CL16 at around the same price. the big problem is DDR4 3200 at CL16 in 2019 is not noticeably faster than DDR3 2400 at CL11 from six years ago. that's mind boggling how slow...

    CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX Memory Breaks 5000MHz Barrier on AMD Ryzen Processors

    So it's not anytime soon. tech progress is getting so slow these days.

    CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX Memory Breaks 5000MHz Barrier on AMD Ryzen Processors

    DDR4 was a very small performance gain over DDR3. I'm waiting for DDR5 to upgrade my DDR3 PC. Any idea how much we have to wait for DDR5?

    China Starts Production of Domestic DRAM Chips

    People can criticize China as much as they want but someday they will thank china for saving the world. western civilization is corrupted to the core and the world needs a new solution. I think China can be that solution. China is like a new blood injected to the infested and dying body of humanity.

    AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

    Navi is the first AMD GPU that did not disappoint in recent years but still I would pick 2060 Super over 5700XT any day. it might be slightly slower but it is more efficient, more overclockable, runs cooler and supports RT. I wonder what will happen to GPUs that lack RT support after next gen...

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

    Can you read the charts or I have to read it for you? performance difference is nearly the same. 9% difference for Techspot vs 10% in TPU. where did you get that "TWO TIMES SMALLER than TPU"?

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

    Yeah, they used just one small, non popular game which heavily favors AMD for showing Navi's strength and even then it can barely beat the competition, it's clear, Navi will be a disappointment. it does not even have RT cores and it will be on next gen consoles. that's a disaster for us PC...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming X 4 GB

    A little bit expensive for the performance. this GPU is choked by it's narrow memory bandwidth. they should have used GDDR6 on this GPU. I always hear this nonsense that "you can undervolt AMD cards" as if only AMD cards can do this. undervolting works on all cards including Nvidia. there is a...

    RTX and DLSS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Oh, you are right. I thought DLSS along with DXR will be enabled on Pascal GPUs but it seems DLSS is not possible on Pascal and the next driver in April will only bring DXR to Pascal not DLSS.

    RTX and DLSS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I can't tell any meaningful difference between DLSS on and off in this game. depending on the scenery, DLSS may look slightly sharper or softer on moving objects which I think is due to the motion blur effect because on none moving objects sharpness is almost always the same between DLSS on and...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    Yeah, you are right. I mentioned rx 590 because it does not have any new technology like HBM2 or GDDR6 or even a new architecture so fanboys could not bring some excuses for the high price.

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    Not at all. for the proof check out that power hungry, overpriced rx 590 that AMD released just a few months ago.

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    Great GPU at great price. thank god for nvidia or AMD would milk us with it's expensive, ultra power hungry GPUs.

    Metro Exodus Benchmark Performance, RTX & DLSS

    Ray tracing and global illumination looks awesome. night and day difference in some scenes. I think global illumination will be the best application of ray tracing in games. but DLSS was really disappointing in this game. strangely even the 1440p image looks sharper than 4k+DLSS on.

    AMD Radeon VII 16 GB

    So it trade blows with RTX 2070 and much slower than 2080 even without factoring in ray tracing or DLSS . AMD made RTX cards look so cheap!
