    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    191 GB for me. People better get used to it. Only going to get larger with all this ray tracing.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    That's the strat I use. Toss a trophy on the big truck and drive around running people over. So funny driving through a hedgerow and killing someone camping in them. I'll know someone is in a building, but they're just camping in a corner. I'll drive circles around the building until the circle...

    NVIDIA GeForce Ampere GPU Rumors:

    2070 Super's are already in the $500's. If rumor is true that the 3070 will be just about as powerful as a 2080ti then you can bet they're going to charge at least $700 for it. Nvidia high on crack with their pricing.

    NVIDIA GeForce Ampere GPU Rumors:

    $699 reference, $799 FE, $800-950 AIB's. That's my prediction for 3070 pricing.

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    Getting back on top has nothing to do with AMD? Then who are they trying to get back on top of? TSMC? It's going to be beyond 2021 before Intel gets ahead of TSMC, at least at this point. TSMC will be on a 5nm node with 3nm in testing before Intel gets to 7nm with acceptable yields.

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    Sounds like they are assuming that AMD will not continue to innovate and refine. Intel is going to need more than a die shrink. They need a whole new architecture. And, realistically, two whole new architectures.

    NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to feature 2x performance than the RTX 20 series, PCIe 4.0, up to 826 mm² dies and 20 GB of VRAM

    You're not looking at the big picture. Gigabyte, Asus, XFX, whoever, is not making million unit purchases of a given die every quarter. These AIB's don't sell a million 2080's let alone a million mid to high range cards combined, every quarter, each. Their bread and butter is low end OEM cards...

    NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to feature 2x performance than the RTX 20 series, PCIe 4.0, up to 826 mm² dies and 20 GB of VRAM

    that's not how that works. That's not how pricing works at all. M$ is getting their GPU's for next to nothing since they're committed to purchasing 10's of millions of them. Where an AIB will have 10-20k commitments depending on sales. So, strictly fictitious numbers here. If M$ bought 10...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    People out there paying almost $300 for pair of Jordan's. They can charge $500-600 for a game console and get away with it. First adopters always pay the bleeding edge toll.

    Threadripper 3990X 64C HEDT Outperforms Dual Xeon Platinum 8280 CPUs Costin $20K

    The this about enterprise sales is that Intel already has contracts in place with HPE, Cisco, Dell to purchase X amount of processors. At least Cisco has already committed to offering their USC blades with EPYC processors. Then comes to the platform issues. In a VMWare environment you can't...

    AMD CTO Mark Papermaster: More Cores Coming in the 'Era of a Slowed Moore's Law'

    Y'all can argue all you want. Benches don't lie. Core heavy CPUs from AMD are mopping the floor with Intel on everything other than gaming. And even that they are only behind about 5% in certain titles.
