    Americans of all ages are spending more on video games

    I would really not advice for people to make serious decision (like betting heavy on that), that sound extremely extremely unlikely, that said that would remove all the debts weighs heavy over Americans (and people with USD debt or USD matched currency debt). That sound impossible, I would...

    Americans of all ages are spending more on video games

    Inflation tend to be influenced by money velocity, people investing/saving it instead of sending it is a strong way to go. I cannot imagine US dollar having 1/100 of the inflation of Weimar Germany, imagine all the giant amount of debt in US dollar all around the world that would simply...

    AMD Ryzen 3000 and Older Zen Chips Don't Support SAM Due to Hardware Limitation, Intel Chips Since Haswell Support it

    Giant improvement of the minimum frame rate claim could be due to that (new things to load during gameplay), but if average fps move a lot there is probably more than that going on, specially when we see good improvement in the max fps achieved...

    A dual gpu PS5 could be coming soonish? Already? >_>

    Next Gen PC Technology Checklist?

    Xbox X: 2.4GB/s (Raw), 4.8GB/s (Compressed) PS5: 5.5GB/s (Raw), 10GB/s (Compressed) The raw speed of the ssd of the console is average for the XBOX and fast but not PCI-express 4 Sabrant special for the PS5. What is special is the hardware/software around them, I am not sure that faster raw...

    Nvidia Posts Record Q3 Earnings, Sales of GPUs to Crypto Miners Reach $175 Million

    Maybe there is a difference by how much it anger AIBs between the 2 scenario, but wouldn't Nvidia Selling Founder Edition on Nvidia.com do the same ? Selling with an higher margin (if not just the chips-ram with the miners company doing the rest for what they want, not outputs system and so on)...

    Americans of all ages are spending more on video games

    Considering they are saying mobile and that most of the boost is quite advanced in age, a lot of the increase could be free to play mobile casino games type of affair yes. That said it is a survey and not actual data, so getting dependant on a free to play type of games is not something you...

    6700 Speculation & Rumors (NOT 6800/6900x)

    The same graphic show the 6800xt being just 10% faster with 20% more CU, like you said the scaling could be far from perfect and loosing 33% of the CU could mean loosing only 15-20% of the performance.

    A dual gpu PS5 could be coming soonish? Already? >_>

    It could be dump for the current version with how much room they could once the do a PS5 pro version, I think the rational is that if you go for many little gpu / cpu instead of bigger more complex one, you have much better yield and lost for each failed silicon are less an issue, you compensate...

    Conventional wisdom: Need 4k+ monitors to make use of the RTX3080/90 or RX6800 series?

    Blind test in the past, sponsored by 120hz monitor maker (so we can imagine made to make 120 hz shine as much as they could) did show a 10-15% of gamers that either were not able to tell a difference. A minority but I imagine still possible, a bit like in the past when someone people told you...

    How much would you pay over MSRP for a 3080/3090?

    I could be wrong not much into the second market stuff, but if he sell the 2080TI right now what he can get for it is probably a giant amount higher than when it will be certain to be able buy a 3080 (maybe fully paying that $350 extra).

    yes ok it is true that if they were selling ASIC (on a different supply line) that it would be a different situation.

    Nvidia Posts Record Q3 Earnings, Sales of GPUs to Crypto Miners Reach $175 Million

    It is a really big difference is someone want to get into mining and so on, in the context of the conversation not really. And chips specialised for 3d graphic were somewhat ASIC until not so long ago (not sure we would call a 3dfx Voodoo 1 a general purpose processing unit instead of a chips...
