    Loot boxes Are Gambling.

    It did, but people will always find illegal ways to subvert games. Most games have tools and websites to assist in exchanging items--DotA, TF2, Diablo 2, Path of Exile, etc.

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    Well realistically the reason that show stopped was because they were basically entrapping people on live television which made the court cases quite a circus.

    AMD Issues Official Statement Regarding RX 560 Silent Downgrade

    All this bitching about GT730's, like 99% of those cards weren't sent to OEM's for office machines and daily use machines where it's irrelevant anyway. Not many people are putting RX 560's in their day to day office computer to really turn Excel and Powerpoint up to 11, just like most people...

    7th Gen Core "Kaby Lake" Won't Work on 300-series Chipset Motherboards

    Yes. Because so many non-tech savvy people just casually replace their motherboards... The lengths people go to be outraged by these kinds of business decisions are pretty funny...

    AMD RX Vega Supply Issues to Persist At Least Until October - Digitimes

    It's hard to compare prices across markets due to things like VAT and Trade Agreements. I know a lot of EU countries kind of get boned on the cost of electronics--especially AMD cards for some reason. I am basing everything off the US prices because we are kind of the largest consumer market...

    AMD RX Vega Supply Issues to Persist At Least Until October - Digitimes

    Well for starters, here's the 1060 I ordered the first week of October this past year--2 months after AIB versions of the card started popping up in August. It was the price the average entry level 1060 was going for for several weeks at that point--$259.99, so $10 over the MSRP, which you can...

    AMD RX Vega Supply Issues to Persist At Least Until October - Digitimes

    That is just plain false. Nvidia sells the FE of cards at an established MSRP, the cards are reviewed and recommended based on that performance level and MSRP. The price doesn't just suddenly go up a week after the FE of cards launch, and you're literally comparing opposing examples. Nvidia...

    Intel Stresses on "40% More Performance" for 8th Generation Core Family

    I was planning on OCing my 2500k soon and this definitely helps. Thanks.

    Intel Stresses on "40% More Performance" for 8th Generation Core Family

    AMD really should have worked on refining the Phenom line rather than whatever the hell they hoped to achieve with Bulldozer. I almost bought one back in the day, but then Sandy Bridge came out and it seemed like the best option.

    Zen Meeting Vega in AMD "Raven Ridge" APU Confirmed

    I expect it to come in lower than the RX 560 to keep costs reasonable.

    PNY GeForce GTX 1060 6GB XLR8 Gaming OC Edition

    The only GPU I've seen that experiences VRAM issues or notable bottlenecks is the 1060 3GB. This is the 6GB variation so odds are it runs completely fine. The 1060 is more than capable for about 95% of users. If you want 4K or the bleeding edge you're not looking at the 1060 anyway--you're...

    Intel Stresses on "40% More Performance" for 8th Generation Core Family

    Intel doesn't compete with AMD. It competes with itself. When AMD has marketshare that's worth mentioning then maybe Intel will compete with them. But these have been in development for probably 2-3 years. Whatever AMD did in that time is irrelevant. You can't just up and release a new...

    ASUS Announces ROG STRIX Radeon RX Vega Series

    Easy to sell out of any new product when you only ship 60-70 to the largest hardware etailers out there (that's what Newegg reported getting). Not to mention they sold out of the initial batch, which we've learned will be at a much lower price point than subsequent shipments. So these things...

    AMD's RX Vega Launch Prices Might be Just Smoke and Mirrors

    This is some next level nonsense. LG and Samsung both offer GSync Solutions, and Freesync is far from "objectively" better. You're literally manufacturing information to argue against Nvidia products. I would be amazed if the percentage of gamers that use Freesync or Gsync was even over 5% of...

    Intel to Debut 8th Generation Core Family on August 21

    No. ASUS announced a Notebook with Desktop Ryzen. It's yet to actually appear for purchase (it's listed at Overclockers.uk but it doesn't appear in Google's Shopping Search and the specs listed don't match the Ryzen variant). It can likely be done, but odds are any laptop with a desktop CPU...

    AMD RX Vega 56 Benchmarks Leaked - An (Unverified) GTX 1070 Killer

    While that's true, to imply--or outright say--that AMD GPU's have some magical ability to be future proof is kind of absurd. GCN was an anomaly that benefited from advancements in API's such as DirectX 12 and Vulkan/OGL more than its competitors. A lot of the cards that came out around that...

    AMD RX Vega 56 Benchmarks Leaked - An (Unverified) GTX 1070 Killer

    Whether or not the Vega 56 is more cost effective than the 1070 is irrelevant when you consider that the GTX 1070 has been out for about a year and the Vega 56 still isn't. Most people already gave Nvidia their money, and the prospect of a lateral move isn't exactly appealing.

    AMD Ryzen 3 1200 3.1 GHz

    A few of those negatives are kinda fluffed up. Easily could have fluffed up the pro's as well, but it seems unnecessary. Surprised it doesn't have 2-3 that basically equate to; "Good with multithreaded workloads."

    He asked "But you can read?" as a way to make sure you understood what he was getting at. You were approaching it as though it were a native speaker in which case that would be borderline insulting--"can you even read?"--but he was just verifying you understood what he was getting at. And if...

    AMD Trims Prices of the Ryzen 7 1700 and 1700X

    You don't cut prices on products that are selling incredibly well. That just wouldn't make sense, and goes against basic economics.
