    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Just going to comment in general sense this discussion thread is all over the place - Whether or not Steam, or any poll/survey, is accurate or not isn't really important as it isn't really a binary distinction. What is actually important is how accurate or representative it is within a high...

    The Slowing Growth of vRam in Games

    A big question mark for next gen is regarding the current rumors with respect to how much they'll leverage SSDs with more direct asset streaming. A potential problem with the PC is that it might not really be possible to have equivalency in that area and the will result in the need to allocate...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    The value proposition, whether it be monetary or things such as time, is highly variable. While people on communities such as this might on average (both median and mean) game every day (possibly for hours) that isn't really representative of the entire potential market that these businesses...

    Leaked Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Footage Is Visually Breathtaking

    I fired up Flight Simulator 95 for the first time and had the same problem. So I immediately went to one of the scenarios in which you start in the air and have to land the plane, I did not perform a controlled landing.

    GeForce NOW Open for All

    I don't have the founder tier (only messed around with free for a bit) but from what I've read the GPU that gets exposed is labeled as Geforce RTX T10-8. The founder tier does have RTX support which suggests it has to be using a Turing generation GPU, but what NVENC block would be in (if it's...

    GeForce NOW Open for All

    I'm curious has anyone compared the "free" vs "founder" stream just in terms of encoder performance? If Geforce Now is just using the GPUs encoder as opposed to a separate dedicated hardware one than in theory the founder tier could be using the newer NVENC block released with Turing compared...

    New AMD Radeon Instinct M100 leaked - Arcturus coming.

    What numbers are you using for your double and triple calculation? Both Vega 20 and GV100 are 7+ Tflops FP64 depending on the implementation (SKU).

    GeForce NOW Open for All

    It shouldn't be assumed that cloud gaming is to completely replace all forms of current gaming, especially no the near future. While there is some overlap in target demographics it'll also target those that aren't interested in current forms of gaming. It can also be supplemental. The broader...

    Cliff Bleszinski openly admits going woke can hurt games.

    If anything Overwatch is more "woke." Lawbreakers from what I remembered had a very late 90s/early 2000s design in terms of fluff and aesthetics. Other issues aside it just didn't seem like it appealed to either people preferring more contemporary game design nor older game design in terms of...

    Small ATX case help

    Raijintek Thetis is the smallest mass market ATX case that can also take full size components. The only somewhat restriction is GPU length at 280mm so you can't fit the massive triple fan ones. There are smaller boutique type cases such as the Sliger Cerberus X but they carry much higher prices...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Even if we assume gaming itself is a necessity the argument would still go that something like the RTX 2080ti itself is not a requirement of gaming. Max settings are not required for gaming. 4k is not required for gaming. Really the biggest reason for the so called "shift" in GPU pricing is...

    Ryzen 3 after 4 price speculation.

    Something to keep in mind is the change in the business side which may mean that AMD's past actions may not be indicative of what happens going forward. They may just greatly slash production closer to demand equilibrium. Zen/+ was fabbed at Globalfoundries in which AMD still has a wafer share...

    VR Core Scaling (specifically 6 vs 8). Any data?

    Might be a misunderstanding here. I meant the 3800x was cheaper than the 3700x. and 3600x cheaper than the 3600. 3600x was ~$175. 3800x was about $130 or 74% more expensive. 3600 would've been ~$185 at the cheapest. 3700x same as the 3800x at the cheapest so I didn't buy them.

    VR Core Scaling (specifically 6 vs 8). Any data?

    Well in my case I have both. They're just not opened or installed yet. I'm really deciding which to return.
