    XFX Launches Custom RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 Double Edition Graphics Cards

    I like the look of the card. Now I want to know what the heat dissipation performance is like.

    XFX Launches Custom RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 Double Edition Graphics Cards

    LOL, and the mass of cheap silver and black-coloured plastic cladding that Titan card DON'T look cheap to you? Now THAT'S from 2010. Not this.

    AMD "Navi" GPU by Q3-2018: Report

    LOL, your fake story is even worse than the one about the kid being picked on because he was getting an AMD-powered gaming system. Don't you people ever learn? We're just not that stupid. I have been building computers for people since the early 1990s. My first IBM-compatible was actually an...

    AMD Radeon Vega 64 Outperforms NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti in Forza Motorsport 7, DX 12

    OK, I'll learn to respond to 5 people in one reply. Personally, I find it less likely that someone will go digging through a reply with multiple quotes and to be read than a reply to each person individually, but the terrifying fear of the 'double-post' seems to have gripped some people pretty...

    AMD Radeon Vega 64 Outperforms NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti in Forza Motorsport 7, DX 12

    Vega is 'competitive' in all games. It beats the 1080 Ti in two so far, that have been optimized properly. Not holding any breath! LOL. Just happy with my R9 290 is all.

    AMD Radeon Vega 64 Outperforms NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti in Forza Motorsport 7, DX 12

    Actually, it's a common misperception that nVidia has a 'higher market share'. Yes, on just the PC platform, nVidia has higher market share, but people forget that the PS/4 and XBOX consoles are really just x86 PCs with some custom hardware tweaks. If you look at it THAT way, then you can see...

    Which R9 290 card to get?

    In case anyone is visiting this thread looking for info to buy a used R9 290, I can say that I'm still very happy with the Gigabyte Windforce 3 R9 290 that I bought in December of 2013 for $259 Canadian. An unbelievable value when looking at: 1) how much performance I've been enjoying for...

    Lenovo to use chinese Zhaoxin x86 CPUs? (VIA's back!)

    The main problem faced by anybody trying to build a modern x86 CPU using VIA's license is that they also need to license x86-64 from AMD, or they can't build a 64 bit x86 CPU. That restricts the CPU to 4GB of RAM. Would AMD license x86-64 to VIA? Possibly, but they'd have to be making some...

    Team Group T-Force Delta RGB 2x 8 GB DDR4

    Do these run at 3000MHz, CL16 in any Ryzen systems? C'mon. The big switch to AMD is already underway. Let's see these tested in a Ryzen system, please.

    Zen Meeting Vega in AMD "Raven Ridge" APU Confirmed

    Holy crap. A 4 core/8thread Ryzen CPU with 12 compute units of Vega GPU? If this thing can also do Rapid Packed Math, it might actually be sufficient for a lot of gaming applications. Like actual, mainstream level performance, not just low end. Just wow. This'll kill off the low end of add-in...

    Vega "In Stock" already...

    Yes, yes there really is a bunch of stupid people willing to spend $1,000 and be 438+ days out from realizing any profit.

    Gaming PC? 7700K vs Ryzen 7 or wait for canon lake?

    Ryzen 5 1600 or Ryzen 7 1700 (which I have, but your O/C should be slightly higher with Ryzen 5 1600) and O/C to 3.9/4GHz with good 240mm AIO radiator and DDR4-3200 GSkill Trident Z RAM.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: "Competitive Position to Remain Unchanged in 2017"

    "their GeForce series of consumer graphics cards having reigned almost virtually unchallenged by AMD's offerings." Huh? Radeons up to the RX480/RX580 easily challenge, and beat nVidia's competing cards in those price segments, which also happens to be where the lion's share of the sales are...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6 GHz

    Thanks for the review, W1zzrd. Just a bit of a syntax nitpick. The word 'wholesome' in your concluding sentence doesn't mean 'complete', rather, it means 'conducive to moral or general well-being.' Instead, you might want to use the word 'fulsome'. Although 'fulsome' can also mean 'offensive...

    ASRock X370 Taichi (AMD AM4)

    Problem is, I bought one (picked it up yesterday) and it was defective. Board showed an error '0d' message, no matter what I did. Changed the RAM, changed the graphics card, moved it to a test bench, changed the CMOS jumper, pulled out the CMOS battery, the board would not get past the '0d'...

    BIOSTAR Intros the X370GTN Mini-ITX Socket AM4 Motherboard

    For the love of god, who the hell wants a motherboard maker to spend money on an utterly USELESS built-in wifi chip, when you either won't use it at all (gaming) or you can plug in a $20 USB thumb wifi adapter? I specifically avoid motherboards with built-in wifi, because I want the company to...

    BIOSTAR Intros the X370GTN Mini-ITX Socket AM4 Motherboard

    Well, considering they're going to either be removed or covered by just about any cooler you put on the chip, probably yes.

    AMD Ryzen Memory Analysis: 20 Apps & 17 Games, up to 4K

    Just a semantic point, but I would find it hard to believe Lisa Su used the word 'flaw' in describing improvements in Ryzen II over Ryzen. :)

    AMD Ryzen Memory Analysis: 20 Apps & 17 Games, up to 4K

    Thanks for this article, W1zzard. I actually had that motherboard, the Gigabyte Auros Gaming 5, and returned it to the store because my G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3200 CL14 32GB kit memory wouldn't break 2933MHz, no matter what I did. It was using Samsung chips, but it would NOT clock the ram any...

    AMD Shares Details on Ryzen DDR4 Memory Support and Upcoming AM4 Updates

    OK, please tell me, what motherboard (and bios, too, if you can) are you using, and I'm assuming you mean G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3200 CL14 memory, correct? I'm asking because I have a Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5 motherboard, running the latest (as of today) F5d (dated 03/14/2017), and I have been...

    AMD's Ryzen Debut: Onwards to the HEDT Market or The Stumbling Hype Train

    I think there are several factors to bear in mind for Ryzen's current benchmark numbers. First, there seem to be memory speed issues with the current, early bios revisions. No support for IGMP memory profiles is a good indicator for this. Current benchmarks are comparing somewhat memory...

    Who had the better live stream event?

    How do we know Vega will only lie 'between the two top high end cards' currently on the market?

    AMD should have researched their name choice!

    Ryzen's thermals are looking better than Intel's at this point. You're stuck in the past.

    Buying AMD Stock?

    As possibly the biggest AMD booster (not fanboy-I'm realistic about their products) on this site AND someone who has made some money on AMD shares over the last 20 years (2000, 2005, 2009 and now), I'd say that yes, the time to get in was back in March of 2016, as I did. Loaded up with as many...
