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

    Stock volatility should be ignored in this market, today -9% "omg, sell now", tomorrow +15% "strong buy" (from same analysts*), but what about real AMD reported results, the Q3 2018 is the same as Q3 2017, I did expect more! it is not like there were mining craze in Q2-Q3 2017.

    Intel At Least 5 Years Behind TSMC and May Never Catch Up: Analyst

    just remember - intel do not have problems with 10nm. intel has problems with 14nm! and it does not looks like intel will sort it (14nm yields) out any time soon and only then we will hear about 10nm problems - so it is multiple years behind for sure. 7nm TMSC (aka 10nm by intel standard) - have...

    Crucial BX500 480 GB

    dam - 80$ starting launch price for 0.5TB SSD (launch price = so it will go down over time)! I guess we will soon store our porn collections on SSD (as if we ned that (I mean we to need our pron collections, but if we need to store it on SSDs, because HDDs are fine). but seriously, what are...

    Are you gaming in 4K?

    you have RTX 2070 benchmarks? only thing we can know about for sure - it will be weaker than rtx 2080 is and it will cost 600-ish $ (or you think it will be 499,99$ - like nvidia says?) - that nor good value, nor 4k60 gpu.

    Are you gaming in 4K?

    when 4K capable GPUs cost 700-950$ (gtx 1080 ti - rtx 2080) - you have to be a rich boi to run 4K PC games, even tough decent 4k 60 panels have come down and cost sub 350$ these days

    More Buyers for AMD Due to Intel CPU Shortages, OEMs Unhappy

    good to know, because I need and want upgrade and was entertaining idea about i9-9900k or i7-9700k and was like: "ok, I know Ryzen 2700X is and will be better value, but I will wait for these intel reviews and see how I feel about it" but now ( from all I red in last few weeks) - thx intel for...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition 8 GB

    at first I was in salt mode, but now I do understand RTX 20xx and its pricing a little better and I can conclude: remember AMD and Vega and atrocious value vs Pascal and might as well be EOLed before the lauch if there is no room for price to go down? Nvidia saw that and was like "hold my beer"

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    yes, I was wrong, it is 38%, lets even round it up and call it +40%... still a failure for the price increase. and no matter if I like it or not - 2080 ti and 2080 will be the only option for 4K gaming for next 2 years? and it stars at "just 899"$. imagine next generation of nvidias then...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    adored was wrong - this is WORSE, he did predicted +40% increase over gtx1080 ti - but obviously that was leakded from nvidias "testing guidlines".

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition 11 GB

    what a failure +28% faster than gtx 1080 ti - after 2.5 year of progress and almost x2 price increase? I did think this RTX 2080 ti would be like +50% faster (than gtx 1080 ti) - and still would call this a failure ! but this is just sad :( I just did check the power consumption... are you...

    More Clarity on 9th Gen Core Processor Pricing Emerges

    are resolution like 360x240 (or less) also ok to measure bottleneck ? - because it would show the bottleneck even more, but that information would not translate to real life at all (not even for 0.1% of gamers). so any decision on such a information would be misleading.

    Editorial NVIDIA's 20-series Could be Segregated via Lack of RTX Capabilities in Lower-tier Cards

    RayTracing will be fantastic, but for future. imagine if a 1250$ gpu's cant push RTX for 60fps at full HD - this means RTX is like 2 or more generations away. but even if you think 60-ish fps on fullHD is worth and acceptable - gues what - there will be like 0,5% (of total 100% PC gaming) or...
