    What Product Would AMD pull for their 50s Anniversary?

    A special edition RyZen 3xxx CPU? A special edition Threadripper 2990WX? What do you think? Honestly I wouldn't mind what Linus suggested during Intel's 8086K time: A golden IHS RyZen with the name AMX5086, reflects both AMD's first in house X86 design CPU AM386. Internally just a super well...

    Do you think the post voting system is bad?

    Right now it has turned into a weapon what mad fanboys use to attack each other. Take a look at any news or review thread involving the word "AMD" or "Radeon 7" The mods marked "low quality" post is more than enough. I personally think the post voting system should be removed. What do you...

    Gotta say it is amazing that my daughter navigates herself in VR so well now. TheWaveVR is one of the few "safe" VR application I let her explore besides Google Earth VR and SteamVR Home.

    [Rumor]Apple Switching to Zen2 in 2019??

    Take this with a train load of salt though. Chiphell user "wjm47196" once again predicts a certain computer manufactuer is about to switch to AMD's Zen2 thanks to its performance. This is the same guy that predicted Polaris30 (RX590) a while ago. Honestly this will be pretty exciting if true...

    I did it after ~15yrs of only buying team RED GPU

    Everything started when I had my first modern GPU, Radeon 9700Pro. Before that I have only used Intel's chipset built-in ones or even older, S3 Trio64 cards. Needless to say that GPU got me hooked onto the Radeon team. Ever since then I have been buying exclusively Radeon GPU for my desktop...
