    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    Everything was great, but I was hoping they would talk a bit more about ray tracing.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    Yeah, I was on the fence a bit, but I'm sure now I want to sell my parts and buy a full AMD rig come December.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    I knew they would come through. Amazing performance and reasonable price. If they have stock they will kill it.

    3 monitor setups - do games support the extra resolution required?

    Yeah, that was my experience as well with Surround 7680x1440. Played Bioshock Infinite like that and games like DIRT, wow, what an experience. These days I feel like ultrawide is a better compromise, but if you want a triple screen rig it definitely is pretty amazing.

    Best 34/35" gaming monitor sub <=1k?

    Well if you are on 1440p now you're looking at maybe around 25% less performance on ultrawide. It will work, sure, but just keep that in mind.

    Wow! Never saw that site before. The Pixel 5 looks perfect. Really hope it arrives tomorrow.

    Pixel 2XL - Android 11 = Bricked!

    This was the only smart phone I've ever owned that is still just as fast as when I got it 3 years ago. I will stick with Pixel phones from now on, my Pixel 5 is coming in a few days. Didn't really need an upgrade but 90Hz and 5G sold it for me.

    I see, so the screen is the same size but the bezels are removed. Should still be a little more comfortable.

    [Passmark] Ryzen 5 5600X claims the first place in single-thread performance in Passmark

    If AMD has the goods, which all the leaks seem to indicate, they will absolutely be showing gaming benchmarks on their best CPU (or maybe the 5600x if gaming performance is good enough there).

    Pixel 5 early news

    Yeah I'm on a Pixel 2 XL right now and I think the size is just a tad too big. It was awesome when I got it, I do like the large display, but one handed use is almost impossible. Hopefully the Pixel 5 will be an upgrade, even though the size and resolution is less, it might be more comfortable...

    Best 34/35" gaming monitor sub <=1k?

    One thing to note, the 3440x1440 resolution is pretty intensive. With a 1080 Ti it might be a bit of a struggle, unless on old games or if you want to turn settings down a lot. I'm on a 2080 Ti and that's been great, so maybe look at getting a 3070 if you want to take full advantage of the...

    Best 34/35" gaming monitor sub <=1k?

    I used to have a 240Hz monitor, and it was nice if the games could get that high but wasn't drastically better looking than say 144Hz. Definitely looked smoother, I could see it, but you are getting diminishing returns above about 100Hz to the point where it doesn't matter. Also consider CPU...

    Pixel 5 early news

    Agreed. Pixels in the past have gotten a lot of cases over time (I know for my Pixel 2 XL there were tons of options) but more of the art and boutique designs only really come for iPhone. Also, if you walk into any random shop, most likely they will only have iPhone cases. Not the end of the...

    This is the clear TPU case I got for $8 on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08K32L994/ Protection is nice, but I actually like the grip on the TPU material better than naked, much easier to hold.

    Best 34/35" gaming monitor sub <=1k?

    I have the 34" LG and it's the best monitor I've tried. Works great with Nvidia and G-Sync, no problems at all. A lot of people say the HDR is bunk, but it does actually help a little bit in supported games. Everything is bright and colorful, even on the Windows desktop. I haven't tried the...

    Happy 15th birthday F.E.A.R.

    The sequels weren't as good as the first one, but they were still okay and worth playing. I played everything, the expansions, all 3 main games, and the online one (wasn't that great and way too hard).

    Radeon VII was pretty decent, even though it was a small limited run.

    Happy 15th birthday F.E.A.R.

    I played for about an hour. Still holds up, the action is a lot of fun. Some aspects of the art are dated (especially the city back drop), but indoors it's not so bad. I really love the crisp stencil shadows, gave it a different look and feel and something original we haven't seen in any games...

    Depends what the one game is. If it's Call of Duty, okay sure. Barbie Horse Adventure? Not so much.

    No, it's running on your machine. That is the whole point. How else could it work when everything is dynamic?

    Well, I'm agreeing with you on the original point (sorry if that wasn't clear). Merely showing that AMD was not starting from nothing once Nvidia's plans were known.

    [WCCF] [IgorsLab] Alleged performance benchmarks for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT "Big Navi" graphics card have been leaked out.

    You can do tricks and optimizations on anything (reflections, lighting, shadows, etc.) but global illumination needs multiple bounces to look good, which quickly adds up when you are talking about shooting out huge numbers of rays. Reflections and shadows only really need one collision in the...

    [WCCF] [IgorsLab] Alleged performance benchmarks for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT "Big Navi" graphics card have been leaked out.

    Not quite. DXR was an add-on for DirectX 12 and was released as an experimental SDK in 2018, which many games have shipped with (Control, Metro, etc.) https://www.anandtech.com/show/12547/expanding-directx-12-microsoft-announces-directx-raytracing DX12 Ultimate I guess is the official release...

    AMD has been working on ray tracing as well over the years, with Radeon Rays and Pro Render. https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/radeon-prorender

    [WCCF] [IgorsLab] Alleged performance benchmarks for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT "Big Navi" graphics card have been leaked out.

    Yes, DXR is part of DirectX12 and is not tied to Nvidia. However, that doesn't mean that older DXR games will work optimally on AMD's implementation without additional work. I haven't done much ray tracing coding, but I have worked with DirectX and Vulkan a bit and there are many gotchas...

    [Passmark] Ryzen 5 5600X claims the first place in single-thread performance in Passmark

    I think AMD would be happy with such a scenario. There is probably a lot of stock sitting there and getting rid of it (even discounted) still helps their bottom line as well as market share.

    [WCCF] [IgorsLab] Alleged performance benchmarks for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT "Big Navi" graphics card have been leaked out.

    I also wonder about how AMD RT works. I know w/ Nvidia, there was almost no performance difference with the different RT levels (high, mid, low) and it was always recommended to use high. Similarly, adjusting the general raster settings didn't cause a big improvement to RT perf. But if AMD's...
