    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    I can see it happening. It would be a bigger jump than the Xbox One X was when it launched but the Xbox One X was an absolute beast spec wise & that system had several shortcomings. Mainly the CPU. They've had more time to spec out this upcoming console than they did with the Xbox One X & seeing...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    The GeForce 256 DDR. It was my first GPU purchased ever & it was such a monster of a jump over the Riva 128 that came with the system my dad purchased for me. 2000 was the year that I also built my first gaming PC. So I have some very special memories with that system. Was a beast of a GPU for...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I expect to see a massive jump in ray tracing capability & performance but the cards overall performance over the current generation will not be as impressive. As long as AMD keeps coming up short with their offerings, Nvidia has little to worry about on the performance side. For now anyways.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Happy to see that the show is getting a season 3. The show gets a ton of hate but is nothing new as several of the other TV shows got a lot of hate as well. TNG was the one series that recovered the fastest from it. Still know " trekkie fans " that still hate on Voyager, Enterprise & Deep Space...

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    It also runs hotter & has a much higher power draw as well. I think most of us knew this was going to be the case although I did figure that it wasn't going to be a good GPU for overclocking. We'll see how the card shapes up once the drivers mature but I wouldn't bother purchasing the product...

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    Just looking at how things are unfolding for them, my guess would be late Q3/early Q4 (September - October). I don't see them being able to get it out any earlier than that since their focus will be Zen 2 during the early summer.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    Pretty much the only video you need to watch prior to reviews coming out. Since he is one of only a handful of people that actually knows what they're talking about.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    Really comes down to the buyer but if I were to look at both cards being the same price, I would favor the 2080 since the technological advancements would justify the high price tag. The only thing I would look at the Radeon VII for is the 16GB of Vram. Which should give it a considerable edge...

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    We'll have to wait & see where the performance lands but I doubt this will change much. If anything, we might see the RTX 2080 shift a tad bit so it's closer to that $699 price point but nothing will happen beyond that. Like most of us, Nvidia will be waiting for reviews to come out before...
