    Sapphire Unveils Reference-design Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800

    "Given that these are reference cards, Sapphire could price them at AMD's baseline". I would say that these being reference cards, anything other than baseline price would be just wrong and deceiving. Well no, not triple slot but 2.5 slot for 6800XT but as motherboards don't do half slots it...

    AMD's next-gen RDNA 2 rumor: 40-50% faster than GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

    With Relative I'm guessing they mean relative to RTX 2080 as that card is used as base 100% in the chart. So to read the chart, the % numbers show how much faster or slower cards are than RTX 2080. Even so I sure will take the numbers with some salt until we have official word from AMD and...

    GALAX Confirms GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Matches RTX 2080

    Depends a lot on price and performance of the 20 GB model, say the price turns out to be $999 but only a perfomance boost of 5-10%, then I don't think the one's that bought the 10 GB model will be that angry. Also, as it stands right now, the $1500 RTX 3090 is rumoured to be only ~10% faster...

    Corsair Readies CX-F RGB Line of Entry-level PSUs Targeted at Gamers

    Well the trade deficit has been ongoing since 1979 when US and China started trade relations again and have only accelerated since. That is a result of capitalism, China produce wares that US want to a lower price than anywhere else, including US. Sure you could get rid of the deficit and...

    Corsair Readies CX-F RGB Line of Entry-level PSUs Targeted at Gamers

    Ah yes, you're right. Our sales tax is included in the list price, didn't think of that. Yeah, that's another thing you can thank President Trump for, his trade war with China. That prices for most everything would go up was kept very quiet but hey, in Trumps own words, trade wars is easy to...

    Corsair Readies CX-F RGB Line of Entry-level PSUs Targeted at Gamers

    Yes, I agree with you, if there's one place we don't need rgb it's on a PSU that 1, is often hidden and 2, in the big majority of cases the fan will be directed down into the floor of the case. Just put a good silent fan there. Oh, and that RM650 PSU is $180 Canadian here in Sweden. ;)

    NVIDIA Starts Ampere Marketing With #Ultimatecountdown

    Actually, that was the very first time they did it. ;) Kidding aside, I hope we will get some nice cards at a resonably price this time, the 2000 series was a little high for the performance.

    ASUS Announces the ROG Swift PG329Q Monitor: 32" Fast IPS, Quantum Dot, 2560 x 1440, 175 Hz, 1 ms, HDR 600

    Acer got their new 32" 4K IPS 144Hz XB323QK NV so I'm guessing Asus will build something with the same panel rather soon as well. https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/blog/acer-predator-xb323qk-nv-with-31-5-4k-ips-panel-and-144hz-refresh-rate/

    September Unveil Makes Big Navi, Not Next-Gen Consoles, AMD's RDNA2 Debutante

    PAC-MAN, the Original Video Game Super Star, Celebrates His 40th Birthday

    You're right, Asteroids sure is a contender but I doubt it has the fame of Space Invaders, don't know for a fact just my feeling. All the games mentioned in this thread sure belongs on the toplist of game superstars, the games that kicked off the making of gaming, what is now the largest...
