    Ryzen 2 APU review: AMD brings fantastic first knockdown of the Ryzen 4000 series.

    This is a pretty significant release for AMD. The vast majority of consumer purchases are laptops and if AMD can win over the OEM builders main product lines with these parts they would have beaten Intel in every CPU category as far as sales if I’m not mistaken: Desktop Workstation Server...

    The Road to PS5 - Deep Dive into PlayStation 5's system architecture

    You misunderstood what I meant. I’m talking about “what” can change with those speeds, not sheer horsepower. If I’m not mistaken the PS5/XSX power difference is less than what it was for PS4/XBO. I’m fully aware they (MS) have a TFLOP advantage. But with recent third party sourced comments...

    The Road to PS5 - Deep Dive into PlayStation 5's system architecture

    I’m a Sony gamer and I don’t think so. Like I said earlier it’ll end up just like the Sony Headset profiles for PS4 (no one other than Sony will care and even then maybe not even them). After watching Digital Foundry’s assessment the TFLOPs might not be such a huge issue. I guess there is some...

    His Road to PS4 was way better I dunno, as expected the GPU is weaker (probably CPU as well), but the SSD could be 2x faster. What bothers me is the variable rates of the GPU/CPU. I’m still day 1 but something tells me they focused on the wrong things this time around. I mean a hard 4K workload...

    Not a fan of this huge Sound push. I sincerely doubt any third parties are going to use it. Just like the Sony Gold/Platinum headset profiles.

    yep about 15% slower if my math is right. That’s at max boost, could be 25% slower at higher workloads.

    Why do they have fake people in the foreground lol. Should have been like a Nintendo Direct. SSD is superior to MS.

    Tech Patents and Saving Lives

    Yea this won’t get anywhere, I can guarantee the government gives them a contract and supplies. They can threaten all they want, it’s not really a big deal. At least in these circumstances, if there was no pandemic sure it would be what it is.

    Incoming PS5 News Tomorrow at 9 AM PST

    I think if the differences are marginal or at worse the equivalent of Xbox One/PS4 and Sony has a ridiculous I/O implementation that is noticeable it might change the game so to speak. Last gen the only measurable difference were graphics. So we had to compare 900p to 1080p or what have you. We...

    Incoming PS5 News Tomorrow at 9 AM PST

    Sony has won all console races in worldwide sales, it’ll be incredibly hard for MS to push systems to countries outside the US. They got lucky with the PS3, if it wasn’t for the rebrand, price drops and avalanche of exclusives MS would have won with just the US alone. If we thought the Xbone...

    On paper GPU in Xbox Series X faster than RTX 2080 Super

    Yea if they allowed that it would be a game changer. I would think it fits their strategy too but who knows. It would be the only way I buy a Series X tbh. I have a 9900k/2080Ti and all their titles are coming to PC, but to be able to just buy two Series Xs and install windows on them and give...

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    It doesn’t take that long to establish his points, which is why I said a 5 min video would have been more than fine. All the more reason to keep it short and too the point.

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    Yes, he runs a business not a reaction channel. At 10 million subscribers with the hundreds of sponsors, business partners, etc. releasing off the cuff rambling/emotional videos about retirement, time off, etc. needs to be handled with some care. It was obviously done wrong if 80% of the...

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    That was a long video that amounted to rambling, Linus does this type of thing at times. He should learn to have better PR in this particular aspect imo. This industry (as mentioned above) overreacts to everything. All he needed to do was post a 5 min video stating clear goals and intent. I’m...

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    It’s not many but people do buy higher end video cards like the 2080Tis or 2070S/5700 XTs to game on in the living room and build them into HTPCs. Like I mentioned above my setups main UI is Kodi then open BigBox using scripts to game at 4K. If the sole argument is “just once in game” then I...

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    I’m coming at it from a Gaming HTPC and my setup is a LG OLED 65” sitting 8 ft away. I specifically built a Node 202 setup for the living room, had to mod the case for RTX 2080Ti heat requirements (cut out a 240mm hole in the GPU compartment then use a black filter magnet on top), took the...

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    For people in the market for these consoles? Absolutely. If you’re saying it’s “always better” then by definition it’s “better” of an experience as a couch/HDTV experience for everyone in that category. That’s just not true to anyone who is honest with themselves. Yeah once setup it’s...

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    1. This is hugely debatable. Unless user experience =/= gaming experience. Setting up a living room PC is not exactly idiot proof for the controller only experience. Even with Big Box or Steam Big Picture.

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    Something tells me cooling is not going to be an issue this generation, primarily out of necessity. I’m not sure of the design of the Xbox Series X but if it has two 120mm fans (one on top, one on bottom) and there is a large heatsink that takes up a lot of that internal space I’d say it looks...

    IceGiant Prototype Thermosiphon Cooler Review: Frosty New Tech

    I don’t understand how this is anything special. Yea the Linus video did a decent job explaining but at that current size and fan RPM any heatsink that big would work as well as it did. If they shrink it down to that production size and it performs the exact same the sure but I seriously doubt...

    Artificial Intelligence Is Superseding Well-Paying Wall Street Jobs

    The world used to have people who lit candles on the side of roads in cities when they were “street lamps” along with hundreds if not thousands of other jobs that have went away thanks to automation and technology. If you work in an industry that can be automated it’s well past time to learn a...

    Ask the Experts Question: Should I have a dedicated SSD for games?

    My node 202 for the living room has a 1TB 660p NVMe and a 2TB Sandisk Ultra SATA drive for the Steam library. I didn’t need 1TB for the boot drive but I had it already. All of my media is on a unRaid box with around 12TB of spinner storage.

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    To be fair, if Solid State batteries actually become a thing based off the lab tests being done with them gas powered vehicles are going away. They are talking about 600 miles on the smallest batteries and up to 1500 mile trips on Tesla size batteries. If that’s even remotely possible it kills...

    Playstation 5 is looking real good

    It is, but the only way I would be ok with this is if somehow they completely changed how I/O works in the sense that they will be providing 10+ GB/s transfer speeds where NVMe PCIe drives (as a whole) wouldn’t. Basically the current PCIe 4.0 drives max out at 5GB/s and the spec allows for way...

    Playstation 5 is looking real good

    I’m sure this has to do with custom I/O but I was hoping for normal PCIE 4 NVMEs tbh. I don’t like the possibility of Sony having full control over SSD expansion with proprietary technology. They’ve never done it right or to the benefit of the customer in terms of cost.

    Playstation 5 is looking real good

    I probably should have said flame war . At launch they were even so the fanboys on either side were going at it. At least until it was fully understood that PS4 was superior hardware and was outselling Xbox 2:1.

    Playstation 5 is looking real good

    A 2070S equivalent part in the SoC would be pretty crazy for either console. Either way, just by what was accomplished on PS4/Xbone hardware the next gen gaming landscape looks great imo.

    Stadia not so good after all?

    That’s actually a really good point, the sales on those platforms will be infinitely better than on Stadia as well. I mean maybe if a family only has some POS Dell with no video card or some iGPU laptop but it’s going to be VERY difficult to compete against Sony/MS with their console offerings...

    Stadia not so good after all?

    That’s not the same at all. If I play a FPS on a console with 120ms online lag the actual game itself will still feel fine (under 16ms). Stadia is comparing apples to oranges, playing Uncharted 3 MP through PS Now and playing it on an actual PS3 is worlds apart in terms of user experience...
