    eVGA GTX1080 FTW > RTX2080 worth it?

    to rtx 2080 - not worth upgrade. if you will sell your gtx 1080 used, then you will have to add +400$ to that money for only 30% performance increase.... it is not worth hassle and cost by any means in my books. now that we know RayTracing is and will not usable even on rtx 2080 ti - you can...

    SSDs Are Cheaper Than Ever, Hit the Magic 10 Cents Per Gigabyte Threshold

    good, soon every cheapo PC will have 500GB SSD as a OS drive and we can end discussion about - do we need it, how much it cost, how much space we need and etc. I hope, that HDDs will also go down, because there is no movement for several years, 1TB (if take 4 - 8 TB drive) of standard HDD cost...

    AMD Share Price Falls ~28% via Weak GPU Sales; Revenue Share from GPUs Only 30%

    this is not how stock market works. first you must look at SP500 (the benchmark) and that did a -3.0% yesterday (that is HUGE) and not because of AMD. so all tech companies must and did worse than -3.0% - aapl, msft, intc (you name it) - all did a -5.0% and in days like these any news (good or...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition

    stop putting those RayTracing and DSLL hopes in positives, because even from nvidias benchmarks - Raytracing is not playable on rtx 2080 ti (unless you count 30-60fps on fullhd playable on 1250$ gpu in 2019 ?) and DLSS is the same when you would reduce the rendered resolution (same performance...

    Remedy Shows The Preliminary Cost of NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing Effects in Performance

    as it was stated multiple times - by the time RayTracing(hybrid) will be an usable option in games - RTX 2080ti will have inadequate performance and will be obsoleted by next generations (stated - not by nivdia of corse :D)... and some people try to justify RTX 20xx prices just because "some...

    NVIDIA Readies TU104-based GeForce RTX 2070 Ti

    it is pointless - because it is gtx 1080 performance for almost gtx 1080 ti price... how is than not pointless card? all reviews quote the MSRP price "499$" - even though it never will be seen in wild. That is all nividia wanted - people like you see: "+5% vs gtx 1080", see the "499$" add to...

    Alleged AMD RX 590 3D Mark Time Spy Scores Surface

    "590" :confused: .... and then "570" will be "575"? another Polaris rebadge is coming, but I doubt that it will be called 59x, I would bet it would go even higher than 6xx, because it is actually a refresh (not like was the 5xx vs 4xx)

    AMD Could Cut Prices of 2nd Gen Ryzen "Pinnacle Ridge" Processors

    amd's Ryzen at this point has so good value - that you even can grab R7 2700X + mobo + cooler use and abuse it and after 1+ year when you feel like upgrade again - you can throw it in the bin or give your kidds to play with - and still loose much less than buying mainstream intel i7 and selling...

    Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC 8 GB

    in conclusion in negatives: "High non-gaming power consumption (fixable, says NVIDIA)" - how is part about "fixable" working out so far? not enough time, huh? when it is time to drop that "fixable"?

    Core i7-8700K Now at $400 as Intel CPU Prices Continue to Boil

    good! more and more peeps will be "forced" to buy a better and cheaper AMD cpus and Laptop/PC manufacturers will be "forced" to do the same. And then when intel finally will solve this mess and prices will come back to normal market will be close to 50:50, intel will have way less leverage over...

    The Witcher Author Andrzej Sapkowski Gets Sellers' Remorse, Wants $16 million from CD Projekt Red

    I hope CDPR will give him 0,00$, because they owe him nothing, in fact CDPR is what brought to daylight Witcher books that brought him lot of coin. that being said, I do hope CDPR will sign with him some sort of new contract (with lot of zeros in "$" cell) for future, not that CDPR need it, but...

    Intel HEDT Platform to be Forked into Z399 and X599

    wake me up when 28 core xeons cost sub 3000$. that would be x3 price reductions from existing ones and it would require something revolutionary form intel side to accomplish (and no - chiller PR stunts do reduce temps by x3 not the price).
