    Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice: Performance Analysis

    Not a single sharp screenshot. I guess blurry mess passes for good visuals these days, just like "cinematic" 30fps.

    What DX12 games?

    Samsung Magician 5.0 released (total redesign)!

    The performance optimization for my 840 EVO 1TB used to take a couple seconds on 4.9.7, but it's now ~10 minutes and it is only 75% done with 5.0. So either it did not actually do anyting in the previous versions, or the current one is full of sh*t.

    AMD Begins Sampling Entry-Level Ryzen Chips - 4 Cores With SMT Disabled

    Finally, about time we get to see some new tech on the marked. So boring to see the same old stuff getting reviewed over and over again.

    AMD ZEN Processors to Supposedly Carry SR3, SR5 and SR7 Branding

    Keep dreaming. The article says that Zen will start from 220 usd, most likely it will be 4 core CPU. My guess is ~350 usd for 8 core and 500 usd min. for 8+8HT.

    AMD Demos Breakthrough Performance of the ZEN CPU Core

    I doubt that there's anyone who does not want good CPUs from AMD. We just don't trust their claims, because they have shown time and again to be untrustworthy when it comes to pre-release performance figures.

    AMD Demos Breakthrough Performance of the ZEN CPU Core

    Even if the performance is real, why do you think that AMD will be selling these CPUs cheaper than Intel's equivalents? They won't (current AMD CPUs are cheap because their performance sucks ass).

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SuperClocked 8 GB

    Really not liking the "founder's edition" price tags on these aftermarket GPUs.

    I have one and never had any issues with it. Why would I complain?

    EK Water Blocks Ready with Radeon RX 480 Full-coverage Block

    Yeah, and there GPUs will come with good aftermarked air cooling, and will not be identical to reference so this waterblock migh not even fit them. Face the facts, reference cards cant OC and already use too much power for PCI-E to handle, why would anyone invest half it's price for a water...

    Charging as much as they can while AMD is lagging behind.

    AMD "Zen" Processors to Feature SMT, Support up to 8 DDR4 Memory Channels

    If past AMDs PR and the real world performance figures are of any indication, the claimed 40% improvement will be just a best case scenario figure in one out of 50 difference benchmarks, while the average performance increase will be 20% tops.

    Next Gen AMD GPUs to Get a Massive Energy Efficiency Design Focus

    That's funny, because AMD fanboys keep saying that power consumption does not matter.

    AMD "Zen" CPU Prototypes Tested, "Meet all Expectations"

    Best thing to do here is to ignore everything that AMD claims. They have been overstating the performance figures of their hardware for 5-6 years now.

    ASUS STRIX GTX 970 OC 4096 MB

    Hey, can someone enlighten me? Just got Strix 970 and been testing it. Since I have 4770K at 4.2GHz, I am trying to duplicate TPU results, but always get lower FPS than the ones posted in review, i.e. (1920x1080): - Bioshock Infinite 120fps vs 140fps in review - Metro LL 75fps vs 80fps in...

    AMD Cashes in On GTX 970 Drama, Cuts R9 290X Price

    lol, what are you talking about? Every single DX11 card will be able to use DX12 as it's just a software update.

    AMD Cashes in On GTX 970 Drama, Cuts R9 290X Price

    Well, in Lithuania at least, the Gigabyte 970s are ~€400 (used to be ~350 before the damn euro plummeted against the almighty dollar) while Gigabyte 290Xs already were at €350-370.

    GeForce GTX 970 Design Flaw Caps Video Memory Usage to 3.3 GB: Report

    Nothing to do with missing memory, just different unit systems used. And as every single HDD, SSD, DVD, etc. used this, there is no issue. But when one GPU says 4GB and has only 3.3GB while every single other GPU says 4GB and has 4GB, we have a problem.

    Yes, if it says 4GB in specs.

    GeForce GTX 960 3DMark Numbers Emerge

    Exactly, the key word here is "past". When exactly did nvidia state that they will never change the naming of their GPU chips? Never, is my guess.

    GeForce GTX 960 3DMark Numbers Emerge

    This conspiracy theory is still alive and well I see. I like the part where you provide sources from nvidia that 680 was supposed to be 660. Oh, wait, you did not do that. Strange, considering that you present it as fact.
