    AMD’s Radeon Vulkan Drivers Add Support for Ray Tracing on Older GCN GPUs

    I played Control on my 1080Ti with RT 720p...frame rate was decent enough though and the graphics are quite good. Something like a 7970 even I see getting destroyed.

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    Man, I haven't even used Newegg in like 10 years. Once they started doing that marketplace type shit mixed with their other issues over the years I just simply gave up on them.

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Brand New Cherry Flavor was pretty damn good. Netflix is doing fine with their programming if you actually look.

    Bitcoin miners leave China for US

    In all fairness you probably should have upgraded quite a while ago. I was just thinking yesterday if a 7970 would still be enough to game these days considering how old it is so a 7750? Where you actually planning on upgrading this generation in the first place??

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Nerfs Not Only Ethereum Hash Rate But Also Other Coin Algorithms

    What the fuck happened to us wanting this so we could get reasonably priced and available GPU's again? All the comments here are just blasting this as if something doesn't need to be done about the GPU market.

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    I certainly understand what you're saying. Even with a game like Horizon Forbidden West with all it's detail and years of "water tech" being created I STILL can't just go grab a handful of sand. I still can't scoop a cup of water out of a lake. For all our realism in "visuals" the actual...

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    If this, along with lens flare, isn't the most annoying and fucking STUPID "graphical effect" I've ever seen in games I don't know what is. What's the fucking OBSESSION developers have with making games look like we're viewing them through a camera lens from the 1930's???

    Did.... did AMD just extend the life of my 1080ti by enabling FSR?

    Sure it isn't, but for me it's still damn good enough. Only REAL issue's I even noticed in Cyberpunk (3440x1440p running on "Performance" DLSS mode at that!) was that objects behind chain link fences didn't always look right but that, or any other minor thing I might be forgetting, doesn't...

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    I think the nanite stuff is cool but, like, isn't it just more mainstream tessellation or is there actual tech behind it outside of "hardware is good enough to do crazy tessellation now"? Still looks good don't get me wrong but it still just seems like they're using tessellation more than other...

    AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su Is Interviewed by Bloomberg's Emily Chang

    So is the massive one on her finger, fuck. Can't even sit center because of it's weight.

    Bitcoin crumbles below $40,000 on China crypto warning

    Exactly. I've never invested in anything in my life but decided to dump a few hundred in Doge a few weeks back. I'm DEFINITELY down a few but, meh, fuck it. Maybe it'll play out, maybe it won't. It's been long enough that the money I have in it doesn't really matter either so I'm just riding the...

    GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Hits Overseas Market at Objectionable Prices

    What resolution are you running? On my 2080Ti I can run Metro EEE at 3440x1440p with any DLSS setting (I prefer Performance) at max graphics settings and haven't seen frames under 60 so far...most of the time the game runs 100+! Very well optimized for being fully ray-traced.
