    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Graphics Card Launch Postponed to February

    They decided to wait to have at least 10k GPUs at launch ? :p

    Cyberpunk 2077 Official Gameplay Trailer Released

    Yepp, In Dirt 5 even raytracing performance is on par with the green side of the Force.

    Cyberpunk 2077 Official Gameplay Trailer Released

    I think it was on GOG something ridiculous like less than 40 euro, but it was for the Russian market only. Anyways, since I don't have that much time to play (I only played the witcher 2 for about 2 hours until now) I considered it a fair price to support a game editor that I think deserves...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Official Gameplay Trailer Released

    Same here, found a great bundle deal with the Witchers, too good to pass

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT NITRO+ Pictured, Too

    Ah, you're struggling between reference + water or simply buy the best air-cooled? I had similar thoughts for the 5700XT and I reached the conclusion that I much prefer to spend an extra 50 euro to buy a better air cooled card than deal with water cooling. It's cheaper, more reliable in the...

    Can't boot into Post with Dual Channel Ram on Asus B550-F and Ryzen 5 5600X (RESOLVED)

    It would seem like some of your memory channels are not working. This can come from different sources. I have this problem and I have to run a suboptimal memory configuration due to burning out memory channels after bad application of liquid metal. But I have heard Linus say that it's usually...

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT NITRO+ Pictured, Too

    If you want to liquid cool, buy a cheaper one. It's a waste to buy this beefy air cooling solution just to slap water cooling on it.

    AMD Releases Even More RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT Benchmarks Tested on Ryzen 9 5900X

    That's highly debatable, I personally will still buy based on price/perf. Of course, if Nvidia loses the performance crown, it's expected that they will try to move the fight to some other zone where they can still win. But I would argue that the most important feature in the next 6 months will...

    Godfall System Requirements List 12 GB VRAM for 4K and Ultra HD Textures

    Probably not, it's just that some cached data will not fit in the VRAM, so they will have to be fetched over and over again from the RAM, which will cause the performance to decrease.

    Godfall System Requirements List 12 GB VRAM for 4K and Ultra HD Textures

    Actually, it seems that in Battlefield V with 4k ultra + RTX+DLSS it needs more than 10GB already, hence the demo from the Digital Foundry weirdly being without RTX on... But the discussion will soon be cut by Nvidia themselves, I think, we'll see a higher VRAM model very soon.

    AMD Releases Even More RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT Benchmarks Tested on Ryzen 9 5900X

    The 5700XT OC'd pretty well (went up in frequency) but gains were small due to it already being memory bandwidth starved. Here, the memory architecture was completely overhauled, and at least the infinity cache should go up in speed with the core while overclocking, so it should be quite...

    Price to Performance Graph for the Currently Available GPUS.

    Good stuff, but are those MSRP? MSRPs aren't worth a lot these days, unfortunately. You have this graph, based on actual prices: https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_value.html But even this one is valid only for the US because video cards stray a lot from the MSRP in different directions in...

    Sapphire Unveils Reference-design Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800

    Well, you can always buy a higher spec monitor, that will give you a very valid excuse to upgrade your gear :D . Buy a high refresh 4k or a 1600p ultrawide and, voilà, you need a new GPU...

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

    I wonder where do you get the info on the console 5nm refreshes, do you have any source, or are you just guessing? Sony made it clear there will be no refreshes this generation, at least, and there is no leak or hint of that yet, if any of that will come, it will most probably be way later after...

    AMD in Talks with Partners About Custom Radeon RX 6900 XT Designs

    All three are, actually, it's the same 500 sq mm + die, with more or less parts disabled.

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

    You forget that during these 16 months they effectively launched 3 architectures, RDNA2 + 2 custom APUs, with different architectures and features for consoles. Now the whole GPU design team is free to work on the new GPU generation.

    AMD GPU gamers only - your opinion on AMD drivers?

    It cannot know for sure, but you should have a tick box to disable this behaviour, which should be enabled by default. That would cost nothing and for some users it could save a lot of time. Otherwise I agree with you that it's a good thing that it's enabled by default.

    AMD GPU gamers only - your opinion on AMD drivers?

    The problem is the crash can come from everything and not have anything to do with your GPU. Just press the reset button on your case and you get that.

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

    Yes, but leakers :) ... Plus, while AMD might feel encouraged to slow things down a bit on the CPU side, since they are starting to compete with themselves a bit, in the GPU market they need to keep the fast pace for quite a while, before even hoping to get to a similar position.

    AMD in Talks with Partners About Custom Radeon RX 6900 XT Designs

    I'm pretty sure the partners can put any memory they see fit (above some minimal performance threshold, of course) as long as it is GDDR6. If they make a toxic, they will most probably put the fastest GDDR6 available. But they need to be sure there's enough market for such an AMD card before...

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

    The promise for RDNA is to have short incremental cycles just like with Zen, so RDNA3 is due for end of next year, beginning of 2022 at the latest. That's what everybody is saying, and Lisa just said that the development of RDNA3 is well under way...

    Many are drooling for a Sapphire Toxic edition watercooled and pushed to 2.5GHz. That would be some BF GPU :)

    Sapphire Unveils Reference-design Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800

    Pending reviews, but this should look nice in my case. I should get some red-black cables :p
