    AMD takes yet another market share blow

    I think many people fail to see the huge loss of innovation that will/is happening when we only get to play it the way Nvidia decides you may, just look at the CPU market with Intel incremental tick tock of death, GPU's will be going the same way. Guess the next round is GREEN for me after 4...

    Nvidia publicly bashing Stardock developer over an ALPHA level game

    i feel my IQ dropping as go through each page of this thread, guess the river must be flooded so all the trolls are out from under their bridge. The days of constructive healthy debate on [H] are never to appear, just lots of shouting down of peoples opinions. bah I'm going out to get some sunshine.

    Nvidia publicly bashing Stardock developer over an ALPHA level game

    Silver lining is AMD competing well with Nvidia on DX12, can't say its a bad thing for us gamers. Landscape might change dramatically in the next 2 years but Nvidia have a big war chest and we know the they put a lot of effort in to competing (wining).

    ASUS - our 5 year warranty is really only 3 years

    Vote with your wallet, but since all suppliers seem equally shady to some degree always trying to weasel out of obligations if they can. Guess we should have a list of great service companies as opposed to bad. Problem is margins are so tight on hardware that customer service is a huge pain point.

    Is it dead? X79 SLI on - off cycling

    yeah water bad, had some experience losing a loop all over a mobo. Put it in the oven and prayed that it would magically work and nope, luckily still manged to salvage everything except the mobo, lesson learnt i guess.

    390X coming soon few weeks

    AMD is almost as dead as their CPU sub forum here :) It's sad to say but things don't look rosy for AMD, been a life time supporter of AMD and Ati but nothing lasts forever. Most sensible users have switched to Intel CPU's even the CPU market is dying as innovation is stagnant and performance is...

    EVGA GTX 980 Hydro (does it make sense?)

    When it comes to hardware it doesn't always need to make sense, but the cost of waterblock on a classified seems a bit steep, most blocks are around the $99 range from Frozen CPU for example. Although ripping of the stock heatsink and fan is a bit of work if you haven't done it before.

    ASUS is downgrading me to a GTX 780 on a GTX 780Ti RMA

    People buying ASUS because of the reputation for quality products and i think this probably true how they treat 1% of the 1% doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. Should they provide better service in this case absolutely, does it impact them that much, nope absolutely almost zero...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    so I'm guessing sticking with 290-x was a good idea, sad to see Nvidia pull this shit - it's not the first time and won't be the last. Maybe with this backlash they might see a dent in there profits enough to change their attitude. If i had a 970 and was running 1080p i don't think there is too...
