    Brace yourself for ray tracing in new games being AMD or Nvidia exclusive

    Bingo! For the last month Nvidia has been pushing this "if AMD doesn't lock us out" crap. When AMD is way more open than they are. How's nvidia nouveau drivers coming along?

    AMD RDNA 2 gets ray tracing

    AMD has never in it's life done feature exclusives. I doubt really seriously they are going to start now. A timed exclusive because it's going to consoles first.

    6800 / XT Review Round Up

    Who thought it was a Nvidia killer? Hell a month ago I said they would be lucky to compete with the 3070. Considering it basically comes down to the games you play makes it pretty good. Not the best. Far from perfect but not bad.

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    I'm not really worried about the RT performance of these cards. Since I've been in doors I've been rolling through my Steam library and only have two RT games out of like 100 games (i think I have more games than that but can't check at work). So as long as these cards are cheaper i'll bite...

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    It consistently beats the 3070. Is that not what it's supposed to do?

    Strange distribution of nVidia 3000's series

    This is more about supply/demand more than anything. The 3090 in particular is a terrible buy especially now. Who is going to spend $1500 for 10% more performance when the same performing card is going to be sold in January for $400 less (December if you go AMD)? So the 3090's are starting to...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I called just to verify the website said they still had a few 5600x which to be honest is all I need.... for now. But yeah hoping they are still there.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    They do I checked. But you have to walk in to the store to get them. Which thank god for MC! Planning on going there after work.

    Radeon™ RX 6000 Partner Showcase Ep. 2: Godfall & Counterplay Games

    You like Nvidia. Got it. Personally I just follow best perf/$. But to each their own. I don't think anyone is saying 10GB is obsolete. But it's not future proofed as well as say the 3090 is. If Nvidia does release a Ti with more memory it too would be better.

    Radeon™ RX 6000 Partner Showcase Ep. 2: Godfall & Counterplay Games

    That doesn't show tests done for low VRAM at all. I ran into a VRAM issue on my GTX 780. I was playing Alice Madness Returns. It was VERY obvious I was running into VRAM problems. Even though a 780 is faster than the 470 normally but it wasn't in this game precisely because of low VRAM. The game...

    Radeon™ RX 6000 Partner Showcase Ep. 2: Godfall & Counterplay Games

    I remember when AMD's Fury came out people bitched and rightly so over the low amount of memory. Now the shoe is on the other foot but we are supposed to put up with "allocated is not in use" . It's ridiculous.

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    People who bought a 3090 would riot because in reality they paid Titan prices for Ti performance.

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    You also have the pricing problem. Figure current 3080's basically go for $750 - $800 on average. This means these cards (Ti's) are going to have to go for at best case $879 if not $900. Will people still go for it? Sure. But it's no slam dunk when you have a much higher performing card for only...

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    I originally heard that it had 2080TI level of RT performance. At the time i thought it was acceptable. But now we are seeing greater than that performance. So it's starting to look like these cards are far more competitive in RT and absolutely explosive for raster. I can't wait for reviews. I...
