    People Are Scamming Destiny's Red Bull DLC

    It doesn't seem to be working at least not for me. First one worked fine, I got my "concentrated light" or whatever it was called from the in game postmaster that gives 50% bonus XP for 30 minutes. I tried a couple more times sometimes it wouldn't take the code. A couple times it said the...

    People Are Scamming Destiny's Red Bull DLC

    Yeah poor me, Bungie forced me to buy the game and all the DLC's and play it for 1400 hours so far, making it 500000000 times better value than Bloodborne. Next they're going to put a gun to my head and force me to buy the taken king! What a travesty! I swear Bungie has more stalking...

    Fun Speculation-Fury refresh by when...

    AMD is closer to the performance crown than they've been in many generations (basically tied now) and this is a failure? Funny...

    Fun Speculation-Fury refresh by when...

    5700 wasn't performance competitive, it was way slower than AMD. Fury X is basically as fast as Nvidia's fastest card. Big difference. All it needs is 8GB RAM. AMD is closer than ever to the performance crown, well at least since what 9700 days? They are now just a tad slower if at all, whereas...

    Richard Huddy talks about rebrands, Fury X, 4 GB limits & more.

    Compare to Nvidia's products and they're very competitive. R390X competes well with GTX 980 for a vastly lower price (429 vs 550). That's all that matters. (looking, I guess 980 has been reduced to $480, still $50 more and half the RAM). Nvidia has an edge in power usage if you care about that...

    Got a 390x, what do you want to see?

    Yeah, a brilliant move in that my brother paid $650 for a 780 (3GB RAM) a ways back and now effectively has a paperweight if he gets a 4k monitor,. I guess shafting consumers is brilliant. But hey they eat it up. Although as poorly as Nvidia GPU's age it's probably a moot point about the low...

    Fury won't beat 980Ti, much less Titan

    Ehh, it seems very real and in line with past numbers/rumors and what you'd expect out of the 4096 SP count and everything else. There's hardly any doubt it'll be close to the 980Ti (and thus close to the Titan). Where EXACTLY it falls is the only question imo.

    Fury won't beat 980Ti, much less Titan

    Within VERY close distance of the $1000 Titan X and above the 980 Ti according to the leaked 3Dmark. Probably driver tweaks before launch should easily push it above the Titan X, especially the more demanding we go, which is what these cards are meant for anyway. At 4k should wreck the $1k Titan...

    AMD: Zen improves IPC by 40%+, AM4 FX CPU Announced

    I haven't really noticed Intel increasing in performance at all, it seems like 0-5% per disappointing generation, and basically nothing significant since Sandy Bridge (modest jump to Ivy Bridge, little since, with each successor improving less than the last culminating in Devil's Canyon being...

    AMD: Zen improves IPC by 40%+, AM4 FX CPU Announced

    If AMD ever gets on the ball I've long known the've got Intel dead to rights. Just think about these two GIGANTIC performance advantages FX chips have over Intel: 1) they run in a 125 watt thermal envelope vs 80 watts or whatever for Intel. This is a LOT of extra headroom Intel doesn't have in...

    NVIDIA Unveils The Titan X At GDC 2015

    One thing about all prices is simple inflation. Our money is worth half or less what it was 15, 20, 30 years ago. Gas costs more than double as well, etc. Having been in this a long time, very good sweet spot video cards used to be $200. It's not so crazy that they're now $400. And frankly...

    NVIDIA Unveils The Titan X At GDC 2015

    8 billion transistors sounds impressive but I did a little quick googling and 780Ti is already 7.1 billion transistors and R 9 290X is 6.4 billion. In other words this thing has only like 13% more transistors than Nvidia's last flagship. Which is to be expected as it's still on 28nm and Nvidia...

    390X coming soon few weeks

    This is funny cause AMD is actually very close if not getting closer every gen, even if Nvidia makes a $1000 boutique card that wins by 5% or something. Back in like 3000 series days AMD wasn't even close. And now we're too the point Nvidia's new high end the 980 barely squeeks by AMD's...

    R9 3xx series to debut HBM?

    Looks like AMD is going to be first by a huge margin, then. This alone makes the 380X just a massive technological jump from 980/970. Wonder what Nvidia is doing with all their cash? Twiddling thumbs? Or perhaps AMD actually has more R&D $

    Chiphell: AMD 3xx perf. leak

    If AMD does 40% better performance on the same process node then Nvidia has really lost it, unless they have something besides a overclocked 980 coming very soon. I'm not sure why you're using some weird double standard.
