    Bethesda Announces Quake Champions is Now Free to Play

    Quake Champions is really, I mean REALLY bad!!! There is no balance at all. The rocket launcher is so fast and is all you need to get frags not involving any skill. Just spam left mouse button and boom boom, then you need 3 well aimed rails to kill a champion. The nercode feels terrible too, on...

    Bethesda Readies Appetites for Quakecon With a Catalog Sale on Steam, Bethesda.net

    Call of duty was just another example, nothing else. Has nothing to do with the game being good or bad, because that´s entirely subjective. Of course they want to make more money, who doesn´t want to? Every company in the world does. Steam just decreases in quality year after year. Their anti...

    ASUS Releasing 9th Gen Core Supporting BIOS Updates

    Amazing results dude! Prolly the best I ever seen and with such cooler! I´m more interested on i7 9700k tho. I don´t like Hyper Threading / SMT at all. It makes a lot of applications be slower and utilize the CPU in a uneficient way and 99% of the security flaws are on the HT portions of the...

    Bethesda Readies Appetites for Quakecon With a Catalog Sale on Steam, Bethesda.net

    Steam sucks. Everyone is trying to leave it. Look at Call of Duty Black Ops 4 aswell. Steam had every Call of Duty for 15 years. Now is gonna be Battle Net exclusive. Steam nowadays reminds me of Google play store. A games filter and full of crap where the good quality products are hidden.

    AsRock Confirms Z390 Motherboard in Its Support Pages

    Most likely better VRM and power delivery, specially taking into account the i9 9900k. Feeding those 8 cores and 16 threads at 5ghz or more (because it will for sure overclock to 5,3ghz at least) can´t be done by every motherboard. I bet even some Z370 motherboards will struggle.

    EA Representative: Game Streaming Is the Future and Simply a Matter of "When"

    100ms is A LOT of input lag. I can even notice 20ms of input lag (usual on 4k TVs), nevermind 100ms. I can´t see how streaming will be the only norm about videogames. Sure a lot of genres can be played with it, I totally agree, but A LOT of other genres won´t simply offer a good experience. I...

    Cooler Master Introduces MasterBox MB530P with Three Tempered Glass Panels and Addressable RGB

    Lmao I was about to post tge exact same thing and then I see your post! Is incredible how hard it is to find a NON windowed side panel case with good front intake (mesh, not closed with side openings). Dont even get me started on motherboards. Msi for example, need their crappy software to...

    ASUS Releasing 9th Gen Core Supporting BIOS Updates

    Asus mobos and support are very good, doesnt matter what people say. My main problem with them are the prices. They charge more than their competitors for the same performance on every product. However these 9th gen bios updates are snake oil (not only asus ofc). We all know 90% of the...

    Intel to Paper-launch 9th Gen Core on August 14, Availability in Q4-2018

    Or perhaps simply the best product? Yes because all I see are AMD fanboys talking about how better option Ryzen is, but in the end you forget that most people won´t bother with overclocking the chip to get better performance, they won´t bother spending 20 hours fine tuning memory timings...

    Intel to Paper-launch 9th Gen Core on August 14, Availability in Q4-2018

    Is so funny how ppl on tpu bash Intel so much and make it seem like Intel is failing big time right now. Then I go to amazon and the best seller is a 8700k and they still have the cpu with better performance on most applications, better ram compability, less bios problems etc etc Is laughable...

    Intel to Paper-launch 9th Gen Core on August 14, Availability in Q4-2018

    Sorry, but if we talk about value race we talk about i5 8400. One of the best performance vs price CPUs in history. You can find it as low as 140 in some places. This thing is a beast. Worth mentioning G5400 for 60 bucks. Amd has good chips too, but people tend to forget the Intel lower...

    MSI to Release BIOS Updates that Bring 9000 Series Compatibility to Z370 Motherboards

    Z370 VRMs are that bad? Doubt it. Rocking a 8700k on a Gaming M5 5ghz 0 problem... Simply put, people now care too much about VRM when they will never need as much power as they think. Is one of those weird and non sense bandwagons. I can even assure you can use a 8700 on a B360/H370 and even...

    MSI to Release BIOS Updates that Bring 9000 Series Compatibility to Z370 Motherboards

    Confused now. Isnt the new i7 going to be a 8c/8t chip?

    ASUS Launches AMD B450 Series Motherboards

    "With amd you can overclock with any board"; " it supports up to 8 core 16 thread chips". Then you understand that if you are serious about OC and 8 cores you really need the cash for x470

    NVIDIA Could Unveil GeForce GTX 1180 on August 20

    Playing PC at 60hz makes 0 sense to me. For 60hz I play console (sports games, fighting games mainly). When I use a PC for games I must play at 120hz at least, otherwise is pointless.

    Capcom to Gamers: Monster Hunter World PC Port is CPU Heavy

    Did you read the article? A 2500k + GTX970 can´t sustain good framerate. If you consider that better than "fairly modest" (your words), then good luck running it on gtx 750ti or an i3/PentiuM G for example.

    ASUS Ready with 19 Motherboard Models Based on Intel Z390 Chipset

    Overreacting. I bet you can overclock a 8700k to the same clocks and similar volts on a z370 prime and on an apex or taichi or gaming m5. You wont fry anything. Now everyone want VRMs for nitrogen world records overclock attempts. Ridiculous.

    ASUS Ready with 19 Motherboard Models Based on Intel Z390 Chipset

    Always find it funny when I see ppl bashing a motherboard VRM, while it was designed to work with NON overclockable chips that will run at 20w most of the time. Suddenly everyone wants beefy VRMs. If you check your old platforms VRM quality you gonna be scared. They are not even bad now and...

    MSI Drops First Hint of AMD Increasing AM4 CPU Core Counts

    6c for mainstream? Nice! 8 core? Perfect! More than 8 ? Not needed at all. Focus on clocks and ram compability, would benefit the home user more.

Cheap, amazing single player exclusives, good graphics for the price, perfect for sports and fighting games. As much as PC shown growth,still miles behind. Pc players like to play fortnite, pubg, cs...

    Gartner Says Worldwide PC Shipments Grew For the First Time in Six Years

    I think you still didnt get that part about this being pre builts stats. This has nothing to do with intel or amd. Oh and amazon best selling cpu is i7 8700k followed by i5 8400 as I just checked and 7% of steam users are with Ryzen according to steamstats so Im not sure what your point is tbh.

    Gartner Says Worldwide PC Shipments Grew For the First Time in Six Years

    *wich was driven by the fact that pre builts with mining gpus were way cheaper than the gpu prices, so miners started buying loads of pre builts. True. Ryzen is irrelevant to these stats. Look at steamstats and tell me how many use Ryzen.
