    NVIDIA Announces Double-Precision (FP64) Tensor Cores with "Ampere"

    Just wondering, how do you find the new Radeon VII Pro? It rocks 6 TFLOPs of DP performance at a relatively low price.

    PowerColor Announces Radeon RX 5600 XT ITX Graphics Card

    I must praise Powercolor for it being the only manufacturer giving a darn to us ITX AMD user. Though I might be waiting for the ray-traced variant of AMD GPUs, my next card will likely be a Powercolor ITX later if not moving to Nvidia (where Zotac has a line-up of ITX card).

    Apple to Launch Arm-Powered MacBook in the next 18 Months

    By numbers only, the new ARM CPUs designed for MAC is likely outperforming the Intel CPUs Macbook Pros are using: iOS: https://browser.geekbench.com/ios-benchmarks/ Mac: https://browser.geekbench.com/mac-benchmarks/ This is going to be interesting, though being successful or not depends a lot...

    This doesn't really say anything without the slightest hint on the launch date.

    Crucial X8 Portable NVMe SSD 1 TB

    This was $59 CAD on black Friday, I spent 5 mins in the toilet thinking about it, then I missed the deal. FML.

    AMD Retires the Radeon VII Less Than Five Months Into Launch

    To be precise, the production of this GPU has never started/stopped because of R VII, these cards have been the repurposed units from MI50/60 on the first day. They just stop doing that as now there is Navi.

    Intel 2019 Computex Keynote: Live Blog

    They are so desperate to tell people to wait for something they don’t even know is coming. I have absolutely zero pity on Intel’s situations, this is a consequence they have spent over 6 years, essentially since Sandy Bridge, building up.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Released: TU117, 896 Cores, 4 GB GDDR5, $150

    Not much to add, only to say that comparing to 1660 the difference is huge. I was expecting something around the level of 580

    ASUS and ASRock AMD X570 Chipset Motherboards Listed

    You might be right to believe most people will be happy with PCI-E 3.0. In reality, the move is driven by the computing, in particular AI market. Bringing it to the gaming board probably is just a by product, but lots of “gamers” let me tell you: many. Maybe not the main frame of the school...

    ASUS and ASRock AMD X570 Chipset Motherboards Listed

    I am not sure what makes you think a gaming board cannot do serious work, you need to read more about computing in general, not limiting yourself to the headline. There are tons of homelab builders and even laboratories using gaming grade computer components to run experiments with GPU. Oh...

    ASUS and ASRock AMD X570 Chipset Motherboards Listed

    Quit thinking gaming is the only purpose/use of GPU already. There is a thing called compute.

    Vega 56 to WX Pro 8200

    What's the motivation? I thought now the Pro driver just works with gaming cards. And for the FE, it is a Pro card and shouldn't show too much differences except for the ECC part from 9100 iirc.

    The poll is one of the best follow-up I have seen.

    AMD Announces the Radeon VII Graphics Card: Beats GeForce RTX 2080

    Exactly what I think, if they are able to sell lower bin chips at a price similar to a competing product, why not? As the users this may not be a wonderful new product, but it is at least an option.
