    Antitrust: European Commission Fines Google for Record €4.34 billion for Illegal Practices

    Wow, this is in my opinion overreach by the EU, 5 billion dollars? Google created Android to compete against Apple's walled garden approach with iOS. Most OEMs skin Android ad nauseum and even default to their own internet browsers as opposed to Google chrome, which I immediately install on...

    NVIDIA "GT104" Based GeForce GTX 1180 Surfaces on Vietnamese Stores

    Yes, can't deny that, we saw an amazing period of performance growth, just sucks us, regular mortals without access to a $3,000 Titan V haven't been able to experience what a quantum leap in architecture brings to gaming. We are way overdue for an update to what's currently available in the...

    NVIDIA "GT104" Based GeForce GTX 1180 Surfaces on Vietnamese Stores

    That 3dfx loading screen before every game started, man those were the days! Uncontested 3D acceleration domination! No other card came close to a Voodoo! I had the 6MB Canopus version of the Voodoo, man I loved that card, a big upgrade from my S3 3D "decelarator" hahaha I tip my hat to you...

    NVIDIA "GT104" Based GeForce GTX 1180 Surfaces on Vietnamese Stores

    Got it, his post sent me on a trip down memory lane, triggered memories of my old GTX 480s and their big ass heatpipes protruding out of the heatsink shroud, they were like the Harley Davidson of video cards LMAO I remember upgrading to the 580 a year after, and what a difference that was...

    NVIDIA "GT104" Based GeForce GTX 1180 Surfaces on Vietnamese Stores

    The 580 was not a rebrand of the 480, it had more cuda cores (512 vs 480) and a higher clock, it also ran much quieter and at lower temps than the 480. Also, as far as I remember there was no GTX 390, while the 3xx series where a rebrand of the 2xx series, there was never a flagship release...

    Your PC ATM

    Good catch! It’s indeed an EK 360mm radiator leftover from my old water loop hahaha, the fans still work and extract hot air from the case, never got around removing the thing :laugh: Thanks HammerON! It’s nice to see you hanging around here! :lovetpu:

    Your PC ATM

    Hey guys! Haven't posted here in a while, I've gone through a couple of updates, but I've settled for basically a 4K/VR station, here's my main system now: For the specs: Intel Core i7 8700K @ 5GHz Asus Prime Z370-A Swiftech H220-X 2x16GBs G.Skill Trident DDR4 3000MHz 2x Asus ROG Strix 1080 SLI...

    Hype Trains and You: A PSA

    Thank you very much for the editorial, I couldn't agree more, I believe as a society we need to rely more on facts than hype or unproven expectations. Journalists also have a responsibility to try to avoid fanning the flames, as their influence is paramount to steering public opinion when it...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    Adding HDMI 2.0 to GCN? I think you might be confused, GCN is the 3D geometry and rasterizer architecture used in the actual rendering engine of the GPU, and as such, it doesn't handle the display interface the video card will utilize to connect to a particular monitor or TV, this is a separate...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    You're right, I stand corrected, in order to display chroma at 444 the bit rate is downsampled to 8bit. And I agree it sucks most TVs don't support display port out of the box, it clearly is the best alternative for video interfaces :(

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    Thanks for mentioning that, I had to double check, as honestly I wasn't aware of that limitation on my TV :( I have a Sony XBR55X850C, it does, apparently support 444 mode at 4K 60Hz after the latest firmware update according to this site...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    It's not laziness or not being able to afford it, a lot of people like me bought 4K TV sets this past couple of years when prices became more palatable (in my case a 2015 Sony Bravia 4K model) and to think that people would go out of their way and buy a new TV just because this card cannot...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    Architectural changes? You do know how active display port to HDMI converters work, right? Those little dongles contain a tiny chip that functions by processing the DP video signal to convert it to an HDMI video signal, a very small piece of silicon no bigger than a few squared millimeters in...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    Yeah, that's always an option, but that doesn't save the card from being criticized for not including this feature out of the box, it would've cost AMD literally a few cents to add this feature to this "premium card" considering it costs exactly the same as a full AIO water cooled Fury X. And...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire

    I think he might be referring to limiting the HDMI output at 4K to 30Hz when using this card in an HTPC build connected to a 4K TV; very few TVs have DP, so that there limits the potential to build a killer mini-ITX rig powered by this card to place in a living room and play games at a decent...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano Review by TPU...Not

    Yeah, I'll be the first to say that after the launch of the 980Ti, the Titan doesn't make any sense unless you want to build an uber system backed up with water cooling, and money is not an issue, at least with Titan you know you were getting the fastest single GPU card available at the time of...

    Do you think Intel will get into mid and high end graphics cards if AMD goes bust?

    I was referring to the terrible launch that forever tarnished the X1800 due to ATI delaying the release of the card because of serious bugs discovered during the prototype phase of its development, and also sending the card to reviewers a month before its availability, one of the worst cases of...

    Do you think Intel will get into mid and high end graphics cards if AMD goes bust?

    Picked other, don't think AMD is going bust anytime soon, they've bounced back in the past from terrible launches (Radeon x1800 series anyone?) pretty sure they'll make it through this rough patch, Fury cards seem to be sold out most of the time also, and the console business will keep them...

    AMD Radeon R9 Nano Review by TPU...Not

    Seems I'm really late to this party, just returned from a week long vacation with zero internet access :p To me AMD killed the Nano when they decided to price it at $649, but limiting the number of cards available for review? Just wow AMD :shadedshu: 2015 will probably be remembered as one of...

    More info here: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/08/amds-r9-nano-crams-a-full-fury-x-into-a-tiny-6-inch-form-factor/ And wtf is AMD thinking? $649 for less performance than Fury X? They have completely lost their marbles, I was seriously looking forward to upgrade my Radeon box with two of...
