    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition

    playing at 1080p is better then letting yourself to fall into hardware maker trap that want people to play at 4k and ask them to get expensive gear for it.

    Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements Lists Updated, Raytracing Unsupported on RX 6800 Series at Launch

    we not hearing anything about console yet but console usually using tricks here and there to improve performance. if i have to bet they most likely going to have RT from the get go. on Pc it could be numbers of things. remember AMD are very secretive with their new GPU so CDPR most likely not...

    TSMC Witnesses 28 nm Process Demand Soar

    why the demand on TSMC 28nm raising? isn't that their client according this report "storming" to competitor fab? or did i understand it wrong?

    AMD Eyes Mid-November CDNA Debut with Instinct MI100, "World's Fastest FP64 Accelerator"

    we still need to see how good they are in real world application. titan super computer end up choosing AMD bulldozer because they believe the CPU design should be good for their purpose back then. but after titan pretty much any super computer using x86 processor end up choosing intel xeon...

    AMD Announces the Radeon RX 6000 Series: Performance that Restores Competitiveness

    did it help AMD gain more discrete GPU market share? for the past 10 years we have seen AMD competing with price. and yet their market share never exceed 40% mark. the last time AMD had over 40% is back in 2010. despite all the undercutting AMD has been doing for the past 10 years they are...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

    i don't think nvidia push for high clock with their ampere design. if they were then we probably already seeing something beyond 2.2ghz. starting with turing nvidia try looking for something else than increasing the clock speed to increase their performance. also while samsung node are not made...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

    personally i think VRAM usage probably will not going to increase the way it did when game start being develop exclusively for 8th gen. yes it will increase but probably only a bit more. 9th gen console only double the total RAM inside the console from 8GB to 16GB. with 7th gen to 8th gen the...

    AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series Specs Leak: RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, RX 6700 Series

    even so it is not something that will work automatically. just like DX12 multi GPU. the biggest problem with machine learning is it needs to be trained first (it's in the name). this will take time and resource to do it right. so even if they can work with any DX12 tittle those specific tittle...

    AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series "Big Navi" GPU Features 320 W TGP, 16 Gbps GDDR6 Memory

    yes higher density means more transistor per mm2. but less power? i don't think that one is guaranteed. in fact higher density will lead to another problem: heat. how much power are being wasted as heat instead of increasing performance? in the end we are bound by the law of physics. we cannot...

    AMD Navi 21 XT Seemingly Confirmed to Run at ~2.3, 2.4 GHz Clock, 250 W+

    they probably will gain some if they don't have supply issue themselves. but this problem is only temporary. most likely one quarter at most. when things back to normal nvidia probably will start gaining their market share back.

    AMD Navi 21 XT Seemingly Confirmed to Run at ~2.3, 2.4 GHz Clock, 250 W+

    the problem is when nvidia start retaliating to those price war. at one point AMD will not be able to sustain that price war. AMD sells CPU/APU, have major consoles under their wing and yet they still make less money than nvidia that only sales GPU (and some tegra). but ultimately AMD should...

    NVIDIA Reportedly Moving Ampere to 7 nm TSMC in 2021

    personally i don't think nvidia really play games with TSMC to lower the price for them. because realistically TSMC 7nm have very high demand to the point some chip maker have to book their order one year in advance. if nvidia try to play games like leaving TSMC if the price is not lowered for...

    NVIDIA Reportedly Moving Ampere to 7 nm TSMC in 2021

    even so TSMC cannot give AMD all of those extra capacity. TSMC for their part also need to look after their relationship with other chip maker. hence when apple offering TSMC to be their exclusive foundry TSMC refusing to do that. TSMC can't burn the bridge with other chip maker just to satisfy...

    NVIDIA Reportedly Moving Ampere to 7 nm TSMC in 2021

    just look how big nvidia A100 chips are. if they move to TSMC then they got the limit up to 800mm2 for their biggest chip. right now GA102 is 628mm2 using samsung 8nm process node. need more performance? just make bigger chip. capacity wise TSMC could give some to nvidia. AMD most likely not...

    NVIDIA Reportedly Moving Ampere to 7 nm TSMC in 2021

    "The report claims that TSMC has become more "friendly" to NVIDIA." not that TSMC is afraid of samsung but they probably try to make sure samsung to not becoming a formidable competitor in the future.

    AMD Big Navi Performance Claims Compared to TPU's Own Benchmark Numbers of Comparable GPUs

    that day probably will give us more question than answer (along with more hype depending on how AMD wants to play it). we need to see the card being reviewed ASAP. hopefully we will see one before mid november. personally i hope this high end GPU battle to end already. give us the performance...
