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

    Presumably because the 3070 was being compared to a 2080 Ti, and it's a direct competitor to the 3070.

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

    Let's be honest, we all knew the 3090 was not a good deal. The only reason you should be buying it is if you have a workload that needs 24 GB of fast VRAM. 16 GB across the stack for the Radeon cards is really impressive.

    Yep, AMD card has twice the VRAM for $80 more.

    Agreed, we are missing a decent part of the picture here with non-Smart Memory Access numbers and RT performance. Also no mention of anything to compete with DLSS as far as I saw.

    Right, so without that the numbers don't look as impressive. Still very impressive but I did notice a lot of the graphs were relying on that being enabled.

    Glad to see some competition. Very competitive in raster, though literally nothing about RT performance. Also seems to rely somewhat on the "Smart Access Memory" stuff. Which is a cool bonus, but I would have liked to see numbers without that.

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    12 GB is not really worth it over 10 GB. 16 GB seems to be what it should be, considering Big Navi is rumored to be 16 GB.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Gives me more time to get Zen 3, and plenty of games to play in the meantime. Plus I should be taking off time around then and Xmas, so might work out nicely.

    My understanding was that the EVGA Black was one of, if not the only one for $999 and it was impossible to find. The rest were $1200+.

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    Didn't the exact same thing happen with the $999 2080 Tis? And sure, your feelings toward nVidia are valid, I feel similar in many ways. But it doesn't make MLID right about this.

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    True, there is not a lot of performance difference between them. It is there, but it's not much. Mostly you are paying for a larger/quieter cooler. But again, this has always been the case with AIBs, they release several models of varying qualities for different prices.

    Borderlands 3 $19.79 @ Humble. Looks like Epic/Steam code your choice!

    I think I will probably hold off until a GOTY edition for 20 bucks. So many games on the backlog and CyberPunk right around the corner.

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    Are you talking about the $699 price? The term "MSRP" keeps getting thrown around, but people don't seem to be using it correctly. The MSRP of the FTW3 Ultra from EVGA is $809.99. Even though it's over the $699 price, it's still being sold "at MSRP", as are most cards through most reputable...

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    This is what the actual article says: Nothing about that indicates to me that he is talking about AIBs simply selling above-$699 cards at MSRP. In fact, he does mention earlier in the article that AIBs will sell versions of the cards higher than the $699 MSRP, but that's a non-revelation given...

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    If you want to talk semantics, AIBs aren't raising prices at all. They are selling you cards that were always going to be $750, $800, etc. The only difference is that they are producing and shipping more of the higher-margin cards, because of course they are. If you want to make the argument...

    That isn't what was said, though. He specifically said prices would "balloon", indicating that AIBs were going to raise prices in October. That has not happened. Yeah...sorry, he doesn't get to be right if we just keeps pushing back the date. Of course eventually there is going to be stock...

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    I think saying that stock would be low is kind of a given and isn't saying much at all. The point he made about prices "ballooning" in October (the word he used) hasn't really happened. The way I interpreted what he was saying was that the actual MSRP of cards (not just the $700 price but in...

    The more time passes, the more I think the 300k cards thing was BS. All evidence points to shortages and retailers are getting paltry amounts of cards with expected ship dates into December and beyond. We basically have two weeks, being generous, for it to come true. Otherwise it was a...

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

    Hopefully not, it's the last piece I need to complete this build. I guess worst-case I can buy a Zen 2 someone is selling off and wait until later to upgrade to Zen 3. But I'd like to just get a 5900x or 5800x and be done with it.

    Arctic Liquid Feezer II 240mm = $99.99. 280mm = $109.99.

    The 280mm is one of the best tested on Gamer's Nexus - seems like a great value. I chose to go with an EK 360 for my next build for the extra radiator size and RGB, but my second choice was this.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Yeah, if you didn't get an email you probably didn't get chosen. Though, they may send out more emails if people that did get chosen have rejected payments, or chose not to get the card, etc. So there could be a second wave for people on the waitlist, hard to say.

    Was hoping Ooblets would be on sale, that's kinda the only thing I want from EGS. I do still have two $10 off coupons to use though, so maybe I'll grab something cheap. The Neon Abyss demo was cool.

    Given a lot of the delivery estimates for retailers pushing out to end of November and even into January, it's seeming less likely to be true. But who knows.

    I went for the massively overbuilt/priced Aorus Xtreme since I got an offer to buy that. I'll let you guys know how it is. Apparently my current case has 320mm max GPU length and the Xtreme is 319mm, so...that might be fun.
