    AMD "Navi" Features 8 Streaming Engines, Possible ROP Count Doubling?

    It doesn't even need that much knowledge to understand these simple facts. Just looking at benchmarks and comparing AMD cards to their Nvidia rivals in different resolutions is enough. AMD generally puts more bandwidth on their cards simply because they can't compete head to head and need more...

    GPU Test System Update May 2019

    It's really hard to push over the memory budget and make an 8GB card stutter related to that; that's why I said rarely useful and not useless.

    GPU Test System Update May 2019

    I think average framerate in a demanding scene is much better than too much focusing on Lows. 1% and 0.1 lows can be just a random stutter during gameplay that can happen on any GPU. When I'm benchmarking myself I see terrible 0.1 lows on some games and based on that you'd think the experience...

    U.S. Tech Industry, Including Google, Microsoft, Intel, and Qualcomm, Ban Huawei

    I'm living in Iran and at least in my country that's not the case. Belief in Islam is getting weaker and weaker here but of course the government doesn't like to show the truth.

    RAGE 2 Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    Dear Nvidia, for the love of god put more bandwidth on your bloody cards. I'm sure with a wider memory bus "almost" all Nvidia cards could perform 10~ percent better at 4K. Vega 56 beating the 1080 at 4K is purely due to the bandwidth limitations.

    AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast

    Who the hell cares about the JEDEC standards? Overclocking the memory is as easy as drinking water.

    AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast

    It's the matter of workload and also memory support will be improved. Assuming that the X570 boards may be supporting up to 4000MHz of speed, that's still plenty of bandwidth for plenty of workloads. And even if you're memory bandwidth bound in a specific application, it's not like it wouldn't...

    AMD Radeon RX 3080 XT "Navi" to Challenge RTX 2070 at $330

    Why RX? RX means R10 and it makes sense as the successor of the R9. It should be called R11 (RXI).

    300€? What are you talking about? I'm not living in your country. 8600K can be clocked 1.2GHz higher than a 8400, 1.2GHz is a lot of MHz, you know.

    Your 9700K is 3x as fast as my CPU? I'm gonna kill myself.

    What games? My 8600K at 4.9GHz paired with a GTX 1080 that is pushed to its limits barely keeps the framerate above 60FPS in AC Odyssey, how do you get 200FPS on every game?

    Nope, it's not the only way, it however might be the only worthwhile way.

    Adding more cores is a less expensive way of improving performance and is way better in terms of marketing. They can significantly improve the clocks and add more cores at the same time, why not?

    A minimum of 15%~ per-core improvment (Better IPC + Higher clocks) across all different workloads seems fine to me and is what I'm expecting, 5GHz or not.

    AMD "Navi" Graphics Card PCB Pictured, uses GDDR6

    Console Optimization in GPU front is nothing more than cutting each and every corner to achieve the target framerate. Just like the current enhanced consoles most devs will use Dynamic Resolution Scaling, cut your resolution in half in demanding scenes and call it 4K. There's not a single AAA...

    AMD "Navi" Graphics Card PCB Pictured, uses GDDR6

    5 percent ahead of the 2070 means roughly 10% above a 64. I doubt it. Navi is the polaris replacement, It needs to be 75% faster than polaris to beat the 2070. RX 480 was 40~% faster than the 380X and I expect the same here, 40 percent improvement over the fastest polaris based offering.

    AMD "Navi" Graphics Card PCB Pictured, uses GDDR6

    Two 8 pins are too much for a mid-range card. AMD is probably pushing the clocks too much, or it could be that the shader count is fairly big or a combination of both.

    Sony PlayStation 5 Console Confirmed Powered by 8-core Zen 2 CPU, Navi and Ray Tracing Confirmed

    It might sound a bit silly but the best, yet the worst way for console makers to compete with the PC platform and the best way for AMD to compete with Nvidia is to not support RTRT. First of all, these consoles are going to be in the market for 6 years or so, that means they're gonna suck really...

    TSMC Completes 5 nm Design Infrastructure, Paving the Way for Silicon Advancement

    The 7nm EUV is just a different solution to reduce the manufacturing costs, as far as I know. It's not necessarily more efficient than the current Non-EUV process. And keep in mind Nvidia did gain a lot more performance by going from 28nm to 16nm than AMD did so Radeon VII might not be the best...

    Gigabyte to Bundle Overclocked, Cherry-picked Intel Core i9-9900K With $900 Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce

    It's not a different world from MSI, maybe Asus but not MSI. All brands have some shitty and some good products at the same time. The Z390 extreme form gigabyte does have the best VRM on any Z390/X470 board. It's not bad just because it's from gigabyte.

    ASUS GeForce GTX 1660 Ti STRIX OC 6 GB

    If ray tracing is going to be a serious thing in game industry then it might actually take even longer than a looooooong time to move from 1080p. but honestly, 1080p with proper Anti-Aliasing is good enough for PC Gaming; Considering the average size of monitors.
