    Intel Intros Core i9-7920X HEDT Processor

    What a load of BS. You're giving credit to Intel for all high performance digital devices released in the recent years, including FPGAs, GPUs, RISC processors and other ASICs. With that logic, Intel wouldn't be here if Bell Labs didn't spend millions perfecting field effect devices.

    Leading German Retailer Sees AMD Ryzen Outsell Intel Core Processors

    Now they need to pull off another Ryzen in the GPU market. A good gaming card with crippled mining performance.

    Intel Unveils Full Intel Core X-series Processor Family Specs; 14- to 18-Core

    Nice. I can't wait to spend $1999 on a 2.6Ghz 18-core to play CS GO. Gimme a minute to bend over and take it from behind, Intel.

    NVIDIA Beats AMD to Market On HBM2 - Announces Tesla P100

    It could play games as long as the drivers support it. The gaming performance would be a bit slower than Tixan Xp because of the lower clock speeds.

    US Prices of AMD Ryzen Processors Surface

    Does R7 1700 have 16 threads and 20MB cache ? If so, why would anybody spend more money on the 1800 parts, since all Ryzen processors are overclockable ?

    TSMC to Build New $15.7 Billion Fab in Taiwan, for 3 nm and 5 nm Chips

    This is a false statement. Semiconductor electronics has always been based on quantum physics. Even a simple P-N junction diode (regardless of the manufacturing node) characteristics is derived from Fermi-Dirac distribution and Pauli exclusion principle.

    AMD Wants You to Choose Radeon RX 470 Over the GTX 1050 Ti, For Now

    Slide 3 proves that GTX 1050 Ti is indeed a 14nm die, unlike other Pascal GPUs at 16nm.

    AMD Vega 10, Vega 20, and Vega 11 GPUs Detailed

    Looking at the specs, Vega 10 will have similar performance of a GTX 1080. Nvidia can easily charge $800 for their next mid range GV 104.

    AMD Vega 10, Vega 20, and Vega 11 GPUs Detailed

    If this is true, an affordable 4K card will continue to be just a dream for the next couple of years.

    Sony Launches AMD "Polaris" Powered PlayStation 4 Pro

    Agree. Hackers take the fun out of multiplayer PC games. Also, you can buy a XIM 4 to connect mouse and keyboard to PS4 for better controls.

    AMD Details ZEN Microarchitecture IPC Gains

    Looks interesting indeed. BTW, does the agreement between AMD and Intel allow one company to start implementing new instructions introduced by the other ? Thanks for waking up early and posting this, Tarun. :toast:

    Samsung to Optical-Shrink NVIDIA "Pascal" to 14 nm

    Most probably for GP100. It makes sense to reduce the power consumption as large quantities of GP100 is expected to be used with upcoming Power 9 servers.

    ASUS Radeon RX 460 STRIX OC 4 GB

    GTX 950, which has similar performance and power consumption is available at $129. This card is pointless at any price above $100.

    What is wrong with people?

    What about the cheaters ? Cheaters pretty much ruined CS GO, GTA V and Division for me. I reached LE and now I can't rank up nor enjoy the game because of blatant cheaters. On the bright side, now I get time to play my steam single player backlog.
