    Watch Dogs 2: Performance Analysis

    Like it or not Youtube reviews are becoming mainstream because you can actually see the gameplay, there isn't much you can get from a slide with some numbers on it, to many people slides with numbers are meaningless twaddle. Given that its common knowledge hardware vendors dictate how reviewers...

    Watch Dogs 2: Performance Analysis

    Would that be the "Cinematic 30 FPS" Ubisoft spoke of?" I did not miss it, lots of people and reviewers say this or that game despite low FPS is smooth and then my experience is motion micro-stutter, just as you expect with frame rates below about 50 FPS, 30 FPS is never smooth unless your...

    Watch Dogs 2: Performance Analysis

    Predictably shocking performance from another GameWorks game. This Youtuber got 23 to 30 FPS in large parts of it at 1080P with a GTX 1080. When will they stop using Gameworks, all it does is render games unplayable

    Dishonored 2: Performance Analysis

    More reputable because you like the results more? You don't know about Pure PC because they are not an American reviewer. I think both are probably right, the thing about benchmarking a game is different hardware respond to different aspects of a game differently, so while one part of a game...

    Dishonored 2: Performance Analysis

    Every game sponsored by Nvidia with review slides that looked like that, with a huge discrepancy between Nvidia and AMD' has also not played nice with my Nvidia GPU, granted not always "Unplayable" but certainly never a nice fluid smooth experience, enough to tarnish the experience of the game...

    Dishonored 2: Performance Analysis

    Looks like another one of those Nvidia sponsored games thats so broken its unplayable. Not wasting my money on it, i'm happy to stick with TF2 to occupy my free time, thanks for the review, it clearly needs a ton more work that it will never get.

    Anyone know how to get a review on Cnet?

    Maybe not the best place for this, but i'm going to ask around because this seems impossible. Maybe someone has experience with Cnet who can help me out. How do you find the right editor on CNET to review a software product? The website says, "find the right editor", but it offers no real clue...

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    Well there is some good news, AMD shares grew 15% today, its added about $500m to their Market Cap. they are higher today than they have been since late 2011. http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/amd

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    You on with that 6700K again? you don't need a CPU anything like that, this is the beauty of it, much lower performance CPU's will give you the same game performance, where as in DX11 it will be worse.

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    Clearly there are limits to Nvidia's DX11 hacks, the technology in all these low level API's is clearly better. Instead of criticizing AMD for not being as good with old technology as Nvidia your energy would be well spent being critical of Nvidia still not supporting this technology after...

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    Mediocrity? i presume you are talking about the RX 480? You said yourself AMD are bottlenecked in DX11. DX12 / Vulkan is where it isn't, where its true performance is free to stretch its leg, there where its on paper performance throughput compared with the 1060 is put into practice, its a...

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    When it comes to DX11 and OpenGL yes they do. Nvidia put what resources they have in supporting the past while AMD build sophisticated API's and then give them away so they can be used to push game development to new levels. I have an Nvidia GPU but right now i have to say i'm far more excited...

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    You don't have to have a 6700K, don't daft, it works on any FX series and Ivy Bridge CPU or newer, those ancient CPU's on that chart are too old and no doubt lacking extensions.

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    If they do they either don't include dictating what games to test and what not to test or they are not being followed, nor should they be.

    ASUS RX 480 STRIX 8 GB

    Unfortunately mainstream reviewers are no longer relevant, they have all gone to #### with following the review guides Nvidia sent out, They are just marketing arms for Nvidia. Which is a shame because Nvidia are trying to push AMD into going bust and reviewers like this are happy to help, its...

    Windows Store Games won't have VSync, SLI/CrossFire, Fullscreen or Modding

    Its very easy to say "your wrong" and not offer up an explanation, anyone can do that... i can accept i am wrong but before considering that i'm interested in an intelligent argument as to why. Any two word opposition is just valueless noise

    "which I mostly skipped" so you call it a tinfoil conspiracy without even reading it. well done.

    Windows Store Games won't have VSync, SLI/CrossFire, Fullscreen or Modding

    Microsoft hate PC Gamers! They see us as a threat to their Console cash-cow, probably blame us for the XBox One not doing as well as expected. For the past decade they have been trying to hold back PC Game development with their DX API monopoly, DX11 was junk on the day it was released and it...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano Review by TPU...Not

    I think that is an unfortunate mistake, it doesn't look like anything mollitious to me but rather an attempt to inject humour, which is a good thing but how it was done IMO was unwise. They are right that GPU is a re-brand of a re-brand and the potential to make a wisecrack of it is there, with...

    Not bad, he's obviously reading from a script and that's hampering his camera presentation skills but a lot of potential there, he just needs more practice multitasking that :)
