    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!

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz

    OMG, you are so obsessed with AMD that you are loosing your mind. listen kid these companies don't care about you. they are like monsters, they eat your flesh and spit your bones if they could. don't waste your mind and soul for them.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition 8 GB

    I don't get why you prefer Vega over this. it's much more efficient so it can run cooler and quieter than Vega and with overclocking it can be faster than both OCed Vega 56 and OCed Vega 64.

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8 GB

    Hype hype and even more hype but nothing interesting when it comes to actual performance, as always with all AMD GPUs.

    Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ Limited Edition 8 GB

    What a disappointing GPU. worse performance/watt than +2 year old Maxwell cards and worse performance/dollar compare to 1060 the 1 year old GPU from competition and almost no overclocking headroom. I think this card is only aimed at die hard AMD fanboys.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6 GHz

    Oops! still less than 5% gain with overclocking which mean this CPU is near it's limit at stock clock.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6 GHz

    Wow! negative result from overclocking! it's the first time I see performance diminishes after overclocking. this CPUs are basically overclocked to their limit by AMD.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    It's not just 50% faster it's 85% faster at 4k. 100/54 = 1.85. it has been explained many times but still people make this mistake. I guess gamers aren't good in math.
