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

    Interesting. I wonder how power efficiency will play out on this though. Hopefully AMD doesn't squeeze things way above the sweetspot efficiency curve.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Says They'd Stop Hunting for Exclusives if Steam Matched Epic Games Store in Comission Rates

    But why would third party stores sell epic keys when they can just sell their own keys? Perhaps I'm missing something because seems totally fine to me. But if it wasn't fine then that's when steam can come in and one up epic if they so wanted to. Either way; 30% share is ridiculous, what in the...

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Says They'd Stop Hunting for Exclusives if Steam Matched Epic Games Store in Comission Rates

    Im not very familiar with the underlying situation so I don't particularly understand many of the comments, but from a high level; to me this looks perfect. Capitalism working as it should. Company A pressuring company B to lower prices. Whats wrong with that?

    Tesla Dumps NVIDIA, Designs and Deploys its Own Self-driving AI Chip

    1. Insurance specialise in avoiding payment thats nothing new, but im sure once autonomous cars become a thing they will somehow figure out a way. If anything it works better for them because AI has the potential to be safer than humans so insuring driverless cars isn't out of the norm of what...

    Tesla Dumps NVIDIA, Designs and Deploys its Own Self-driving AI Chip

    1. The insurance would pay for damages but no one would be classified as guilty. 2. Or just phase out taxes all together because they are the most useless invention. Taxes are the devil lol

    AMD Ryzen 3 3200G Pictured and De-lidded

    Or when navi arrives and they pair it with a 8 core chiplet, though to do that they most likely would need a redesigned IO chip . It wont scalable to 15w perhaps but im sure it would do fine in 35-65w package.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Specifications and Price Revealed

    Based on the specs; I anticipate it to be on par or within 5% performance of a gtx1060 3GB As we've seen previously; Turing seems to be around 15% faster per core/shader than pascal. And with higher clocks it shouldn't be much of a problem. We are likely to see certain memory bandwidth...

    Intel Soaks Up Heather Lennon, AMD RTG Digital Marketing Head

    Perhaps pay their employees better? Allow for growth within the company? Its easier said than done. The reality is that individuals are always looking for better opportunities, and with intel being new to the gpu game; the potential available positions are vast. This is good for AMD and Nvidia...

    Intel Reveals the "What" and "Why" of CXL Interconnect, its Answer to NVLink

    Charlie Demerjian is one of the best tech analysts in my opinion. Dude sure knows his stuff. Sure he is pretty critical of intel; though I truly think it is well justified as intel has proved over and over again that they are unethical as hell. Though to be fair, I am liking the new intel better...

    Steam Hardware Survey Shows AMD's Continued Struggle to Gain Market Share

    I seriously can't even express how disgusted I am when I see trends like this. Rx580 is superior to a GTX 1060 on almost every metric imaginable and yet consumers buy the 1060 15 times more. This type of trend makes me think that even if AMDs lineup was far superior; consumers will just simply...

    NVIDIA RTX Logic Increases TPC Area by 22% Compared to Non-RTX Turing

    I remember this coming up in the comments previously. I pointed out how a GTX 1660 ti at 284mm2 is about 10-15% slower than a GTX 1080 at 314mm2 (also 10-15% smaller in size) It makes me question whether Turing actually improved on pascal at all. Similar performance for a given footprint. Im...

    AMD Ryzen 3000 "Zen 2" BIOS Analysis Reveals New Options for Overclocking & Tweaking

    Yes that's true, but it matters most when pumping extremely high frame rates often over 150-160 where the CPU becomes the bottleneck As you move down to the 100fps range the differences become much less worthwhile especially in 1440p or 4k. The only way you will see 1440p or 4k showing a bigger...

    AMD Ryzen 3000 "Zen 2" BIOS Analysis Reveals New Options for Overclocking & Tweaking

    Check this out if you haven't already. Its perhaps one of my favourite break downs on cache memory. And in regards to zen/zen+ watch at 23min. But in short, the latency issues are not as bad as people think if you actually look at this from the right perspective. Basically you would need to look...

    NVIDIA GTC 2019 Kicks Off Later Today, New GPU Architecture Tease Expected

    Thats perfectly fine and rather good for the gaming market. We need ray tracing that can run on all hardware rather than nvidia using its market dominance to push its proprietary technology on developers to drive out fair competition.

    AMD Patents Variable Rate Shading Technique for Console, VR Performance Domination

    Actually most of the details added in games are useless and developers are often sloppy about performance vs quality. Much of the ultra settings in games these days are just an extravagant amount of details or perks that are meant to just simply tax the hardware to the limit without exactly...

    AMD Patents Variable Rate Shading Technique for Console, VR Performance Domination

    It really is. Tho i can understand why the wiiU was criticized, but the same criticism cannot be said about the switch. I tend to use my switch more in tablet mode than on the TV. having that freedom to connect it to the TV only makes it better. Its honestly my favourite console this Gen

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    Matching gtx1080 in performance/watt yes, but belonging to a lower segment is completely superficial. It belongs to a lower segment because nvidia wants us to think they are doing more for less. But in reality the production cost for both is very similar, and actually less for gtx1080 if you...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    I was specifically replying to someone who was impressed by Turing's efficiency as something "tremendous". its good and all but hardly anything impressive especially when compared to a gtx1080. Also note i was taking a deeper look at the architecture part in general. I used die size for the...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    I am actually not too impressed by turing. Remember this chip has a die size almost as big as that of the gtx 1080. At 284mm2 its about 10-15% smaller than 314mm2 of the 1080, but is on a smaller 12nm process. And is 15% slower than 1080. Doesn't seem like much improvement as progress is atleast...

    Tight Squeeze Below $350 as Price of GTX 1660 Ti Revealed

    Yes this is absolutely true, but early adoption in itself is the business risk I was speaking of. Sure we cant fully prove our stances but we can surely make intelligent guesses simply by looking at the business aspect of things. For example; How much you are willing to spend on something often...

    Tight Squeeze Below $350 as Price of GTX 1660 Ti Revealed

    What you are saying also actually reinforces what I said overall, which is just simple economics. But nvidia just overdid it there. Adding controllers and functionality is one thing i get that, but then almost doubling the die size for an extra 20-25% performance even after the benefit of moving...
