    NVIDIA Bracing for a Cryptocurrency Demand Drop

    7 optimized RX580s get that hash rate at similar power consumption levels. Sure, ASIC is easier to setup and maybe cheaper at first, but if mining goes south it will become worthless, unlike GPUs. I'd be on a lookout for a Baikal Giant N, a Cyptonight ASIC that hashes the same as 10 optimized RX...

    Here Be AMD RX Vega Model's Codenames: Vega XTX, Vega XT, Vega XL

    IT consumes 255W in Tom's review as well, 340W is for overclocked card. Maybe an idea for TPU, start including card's power consumption at max OC in your reviews?

    New Performance Benchmarks of AMD's Vega Frontier Edition Surface

    Where did you read that? RTG dude at B3D mentioned it uses "older" driver. He didn't say anything about the features missing, he even dismissed the insinuation that the FE driver may be gimped in some way compared to RX driver. Next driver revision should be pretty telling i guess..

    Where do you see a six pin tho? Both cards seem to have 2x8pin according to those pictures. There was a a 6+8 pin card that Raja had during some presentation but afaik he said it was only eng. sample and the production cards will have 2x8pin.

    EKWB Fluid Gaming 240G Kit

    It's 250eur incl. 22% Slovenian VAT + 5 eur shipping (to Croatia at least). You are seeing the price without the VAT because Macedonia is not in EU, so i guess you will be charged the Macedonian VAT + other fees when you try to import it.

    AMD Works on At Least Three Radeon RX Vega SKUs, Slowest Faster than GTX 1070?

    Isn't that the same SKU with 3 different board revisions, C1 being the earliest? 9000 something score is probably a fake as there is no evidence of it in 3dmark result database.

    NVIDIA to Steal AMD's Ryzen Limelight on Feb 28

    Well, if there is any truth to this....in my opinion, nvidia are not trying to steal anything from AMD, they are actually trying to use the hype around Ryzen to promote their card. What they might be thinking is this... look, AMD is launching a new CPU which appears to be a good performer so...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI

    Well, i thought nvidia (Petersen?) said the point of HB bridge is to improve frametimes i.e. provide additional smoothness to an SLI setup. Also, there seems to be some CPU bottlenecking in FO4 and WoW, maybe even in Hitman as well since the FPS is pretty much the same 900p-4K.

    NVIDIA Readies GeForce GTX 950 SE Graphics Card

    GM206 also has delta color compression, MFAA, some extra DX12 features and supports SLI. Actually it's quite a bit different than Maxwell v1. If it's priced at $120 or less it will be a solid buy.

    AMD Doesn't Trust its Own Processors - Project Quantum Driven by Intel Core i7-4790K

    Nvidia does not possess an x86 licence and never did. What you linked there is a Uli product. Nvidia acquired Uli some time ago

    SilverStone Raven X RVX01 Pictured

    Uh what kind of gfx card is that? Meh, 295x2, the case is so small i didn't realize that half of the card is hidden.

    Intel Core i7-5775C and i5-5675C Hit Retail Channel in Early June

    On the subject of running old quads with modern cards, a hardworking user of beyond3d forums did a very nice comparison between SB i5, Q9550 and a lynnfield i7, all overclocked. You can see his results here: GTX 970@1.5Ghz and 2500k vs Q9550 in 70+ benchmarks (+bonus i7-860) . So yea, unless you...

    A bit of OT, but i was just wandering what the hell is going on with AMD cards in WOW benchmark? They don't seem to lose a single fps switching from 1440p to 4K :wtf: I'm sorry if this was mentioned before, i din't see it.
