    Sapphire Reps Leak Juicy Details on AMD Radeon Navi

    AMD had shitty marketing retail GPU strategy since they bought ATI. If you don't advertise your product correctly, you won't sell it, period. We're 0.1 % of population following IT development, read reviews, compare price/performance, performance per watt ratio etc. 99.9 % of potential consumers...

    Sapphire Reps Leak Juicy Details on AMD Radeon Navi

    Sapphire is AMDs biggest add-in-board partner so either this dude was drunk, wanted to be fired and sued or he's actually leaking out intentionally not to get overhyped about AMD saving the day when it comes to pricing. I'd say the last one is most probable scenario. Think about it overhyped...

    Sapphire Reps Leak Juicy Details on AMD Radeon Navi

    I'm in 3) AMD get your FU GPU R&D team in order, stop relying on 7 yo GCN architecture already, do some actual R&D on gaming sagment and offer me something decent to buy. I've been buying Red team since ATI, but stopped with HD 7870. I'd jump on buying anything Red with decent price/performance...

    Intel to Move 3D XPoint Memory Manufacturing to China

    ICC has preventive role. If politicians would live in fear that their decisions could lead to being charged of war crimes and locked up for life, they'd think twice before committing war crime atrocities. China has played by western rules since opening up so it could become a member of WTO...

    Intel to Move 3D XPoint Memory Manufacturing to China

    IPCC useless? Tell that to your children or grand children when they'll try to grow enough food not to starve to death in vein. ICC useless? Of course when you're afraid your army officers and politicians might be charged of war crimes. Let's face if, China has stopped playing by Western rules...

    Intel to Move 3D XPoint Memory Manufacturing to China

    Afganistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen … Guantanamo, 144 drone strikes per day, unrecognition of International Criminal Court (ICC), unrecognition of IPCC, current sabotaging and bullying of Venezuela, Iran… Is that called human progress in your eyes?

    Intel to Move 3D XPoint Memory Manufacturing to China

    R&D theft was always part of a game. Old Greeks learned from Egyptians, Romans mainly from Greeks, North Africa and Middle East from Greeks and Romans, Europe in "dark" middle ages regained forgotten knowledge from European Muslims on Iberia peninsula and southern Italy, US "stole" know how from...

    Ubisoft Announces Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    I've had unpleasant "fortune" to be 19 years old army medic recruit when war in Yugoslavia started. I saw first hand what kind of flash wounds Kalashnikov and Dragunov do. You can get away with being hit by low velocity ammunition if you're extremely lucky or if 7.62 penetrates your lungs and go...

    Ubisoft Announces Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Keep dreaming. 5.56×45mm NATO ammunition is designed to FU up inside, 7.62×39mm USSR to thorn your arms and legs. You might not die, put neither will you walk around.

    Ubisoft Announces Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Another Ghost Recon, another crap… Where are the glorious days of original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon (2001) when one shot meant one kill? The same happened with Rainbow 6 series. I had so much fun playing these true tactical shooters.

    Intel 10nm Ice Lake to Quantitatively Debut Within 2019

    So 14nm++++++++++++ until 2021? Nice one Intel. You leave us no choice but to buy Zen 2/Zen 3. That's what resting on the laurels brings to you. Well deserved. Time to short Intel and buy AMD stocks again I guess.

    Jon Peddie Research: 20 Million Shift from PC Gaming to Console Gaming by 2022

    I've been listening to PC gaming obituaries since 1990. I'll believe it, when I see it. PC gaming still has 50 % of gaming market share. It might shrink considerably when broadband internet becomes fast enough that latency isn't a problem anymore but looking at lazy ISPs and their unwillingness...

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    Nice one. Finally some price/performance improvements. Let the GPU price war begin. I'll wait till 7th July when Navi comes out before pulling the trigger. AMD will have to offer even lower prices now. Vega 56 has started to sell for only €269 (blower addition) today. I'm expecting Navi to be...

    Intel Rolls Out the 4 GHz Pentium Gold G5620 Processor

    Oh, People rejoice! Intel has granted us 4 Ghz 2 core CPU for only 100 bucks! The problem is I can get 4 Ghz 6 core 1600x for 140 quits right now. One more proof Intel doesn't give a fuck about retail market anymore.

    NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti to Perform Roughly On-par with GTX 1070: Leaked Benchmarks

    Just bought 2nd hand gtx 1080TI for 390€ to replace rx 570. I'm good for the next 2-3 years according to Ngreedia's willingness to give us zero price performance ratio increase on upper end of market segment after 3 years of waiting. In 3 years time gtx 1080TI, being 5 yo GPU by then, will most...

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

    We got nearly ZERO price/performance progress in 3 years! GTX 1660 Ti = GTX 1070 for $300. Where is value in that? So I guess GTX 10660 will be RX 590 for $250? Fuck, we need Navi to be fast and cheap real bad right now. I don't know why I have a feeling we'll be once again utterly disappointed...

    Steam Fanatics Review-bomb "Metro Exodus" on Metacritic

    I like epic store. I got Subnautica and What Remains of Edith Finch for free. I revisit store twice a month to see if I any good free game is coming. So far only these 2 were worth downloading. I say keep them coming. I didn't buy anything from them though.

    NVIDIA Reports Q4 and 2018 Financial Results - Down 45%

    This is a bit too much. According to Anandtech and Gamer Nexus Nvidia is targeting 50-60 % profit margin for their retail GPU gaming products. That hasn't changed when going from Maxwell/Pascal to Turing. The problem NVidia has with Turing is large die and rather expensive GDDR6 ram. So Nvidia...

    NVIDIA Reports Q4 and 2018 Financial Results - Down 45%

    Let them do it. I'm one rise away from buying PS5 when it comes out and be done with PC gaming. That's coming from someone who's been PC gamer for 25 years and according to forums talk I'm not alone. High end PC gaming has become ridiculously expensive.

    No AMD Radeon "Navi" Before October: Report

    True, without new architecture Navi will be DOA. GCN can't even compete with pascal, Turing is generation ahead and tweaked 7nm Turing with higher clock boosts will be 2 generations ahead in 2020 if Navi doesn't have completely new die arch. I really hope AMD gets serious with R&D or they will...

    No AMD Radeon "Navi" Before October: Report

    How could Navi compete with Turing if it is still based on somewhat tweaked GCN? NVidia will surely move Turing to 7nm by 1H2020 and lower prices if needed while maintaining profit margin due to die shrink. AMD has missed the only time gape when they could hurt NVidia by offering mid range...

    No AMD Radeon "Navi" Before October: Report

    I understand where AMD stands financially, BUT they should not lie to their own fans. I have been postponing GPU buy based on AMD's GPU roadmap for more than a year and when bloody Navi should at least get release date AMD goes silent and offers us abysmal overpriced and nowhere to be found R7 -...

    No AMD Radeon "Navi" Before October: Report

    WFT, first abysmal Radeon VII release and now no Navi till Q4? What's wrong with AMD? NVidia is opening bottles right now. AMD left me no choice but to buy RTX 2060. I'm not waiting another year to get my hands on Navi. What a joke of a company. AMD has successfully destroyed ATI's legacy of...

    AMD Radeon VII 16 GB

    AMDs GPU department is in very bad situation right now. I was hoping we would be reading reviews of Navi by now. It looks like 7nm Navi isn't coming till 2H or even 3/4Q of 2019. They have missed opportunity to punish NVidia for overpriced RTX series. NVidia will be close to migrating Turing to...
