    Red Dead Redemption 2

    SLI under Vulkan is so very nearly fixed. The only issues that remain are: TAA must be enabled or the lighting is way too bright (basically you get a white screen) There's still some flickering in places but it seems to vary - most of the time it's non-existent Aforementioned flickering is...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Errr...I just updated my nvidia drivers to 441.20 (machine in sig) and now my 2nd card is being used. However, there appears to be a negative impact on framerate and I HAVE to enable TAA otherwise the lighting is too dark at night or too bright in the day. Have not touched the profile for the...

    Update AGESA ABBA is OUT

    There's a new 0901 BIOS from Asus for the C8H. Anyone tried it yet?

    AMD's Ryzen 3000 Boost-Fixing BIOS Leaks out

    I just updated to 1001 on my C8H, fuck all difference as far as I can tell, if anything, boost behaviour is a little worse. Also, something that's been bugging me since I built this machine. In Ryzen Master, C06 on CCX 1 is tagged yellow (gold if you will). My understanding is this is supposed...

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Right, my system is built, C8H, 3700x etc. (as above). Time Spy has gone from 12.5k to 17.5k. Cinebench R20 coming out at 4636 after 10 passes. Question about clocks and temps. I'm currently running prime95, it's been going for maybe 10 mins. According to Ryzen Master, my clocks are 3.75GHz...

    Broke AM4 Socket Cover

    Look at the scoring in the PCB coating around the mounting holes. I would say you've got a very heavy screwdriver hand and are overtightening stuff by miles.

    Post your Ryzen 3000 configs!

    Are we saying 3200 CL14 is better than 3600 CL16? From what I've seen there doesn't seem to be much in it (real world) but 3600 seemed to have the (very slight) edge.

    Post your Ryzen 3000 configs!

    Out of interest, why are people going with 3200Mhz RAM instead of 3600Mhz?

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Indeed, I could but I've always gone for "decent" motherboards and I want lots of onboard USB so I don't have to mess about with hubs / cards. Plus the CH8 easily has the best aesthetics. The overall cost isn't the issue, but I do like getting value. That, and I want something solid that is...

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    I'm actually thinking about doing the same, 3600 + CH8. From what I can see, there's nothing in it when it comes to gaming performance between the 3600, 3600x, 3700x and the 3900x. I don't do any production workloads. So it feels like the 3600 (non x) makes most sense.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X CPU Review @ [H]

    I think the real winner here will be the 1900X. Much lower price-point, fewer but still enough C/Ts and, most importantly...ALL the other functionality remains (e.g. Quad Channel, 64-lanes). And a higher base clock (and possibly boost) to boot.

    Holy Crap! Leaked 1950x benches 45% faster than Intel

    That's what SLI is for. /makes mental note never to build SLI again and wait for AIB cards over FE / Reference cards in future :rolleyes:

    So who is pre-purchasing the X399 motherboards and Threadripper CPU's tomorrow?

    With this kind of spend, would it not be prudent to wait until the reviews are out?

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Specs and Pricing Officially Revealed

    64 lanes across the range, that's how to do it. 16x / 16x for SLIFire Leaves 32 clear lanes for other shit right?
