    Nvidia Control Panel not working

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    FXAA/TXAA smooth an image out. They do not try to insert missing information where there is none. This is what you get when you don't have AI inserting missing information. Play with the sliders all you want; without AI, information isn't just going to magically appear where there is none.

    Valve to Face Antitrust Lawsuit Over Steam Gaming Platform

    The Epic Games Store released on December 6, 2018, but that post is from November 30, 2018. And you're saying this is a receipt when it was done prior to EGS even existing? I think you might be grasping at straws.

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    Did you watch the video? No amount of tweaking will fix those glaring issues; and as far as mitigating them, I don't see how they can mitigate them to the degree that an AI assisted upscaler does. As far as FSR improving quicker than DLSS, I suspect it will not. There is just no way for an...

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    Just watched the full DF video, and so far I gather FSR 2.0 is much better than FSR 1.0, but still not as good as DLSS. And it mostly runs faster on nvidia cards than on AMD cards with a few outliers depending on architecture and resolution. I guess we will have to wait for more titles to...

    Seems pretty clear to me, 1080p go red, 4k go green and in between choose whatever floats your boat.

    AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT ‘RDNA 2 Refresh’ Graphics Cards Rumored For Q2 2022: Navi 21 & 22 GPUs With 18 Gbps Memory

    Found rumors of possible incoming releases, but there are no 11 series released as far as I can tell. If it never released, can it be considered a rebrand?

    What I meant to say is that the GTX 670 was rebranded to the GTX 760 Ti, my apologies; but it was the last chip to be rebranded. I have since edited my post to correct it. It was, you are correct. Yup.

    You're point? Nvidia's last rebrand was the GTX 670 which released May 10th, 2012. 4 days short of an entire decade ago. As opposed to AMD's which was the RX 455 released in June 30th of 2016. Edit: The last nvidia card to be a rebrand is the GTX 760 Ti which released in 25th August, 2013 and...

    VESA announces updates to adaptive sync certification process

    It's actually very easy to see what monitors have g-sync certification as Nvidia even keeps a list of all g-sync ultimate, g-sync and g-sync compatible monitors on their own website, g-sync monitors. Edit: Lakados beat me to it.

    VESA announces updates to adaptive sync certification process

    Only question that pops up in my head is if it's still better just to look for a gsync compatible certified monitor since those have at least been tested and certified to provide a good and basic, trouble free, tear free and stutter free gaming experience. Is this bound to be any better than...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Listen, until you remove the heatsink and actually look under it, you have absolutely no proof that the thermal pads are either missing or incorrect; full stop. And as far as this thread goes, you have 3 choices. Leave it as is, repair it yourself, or return it. Whatever you choose, is of...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Forgive my ignorance, but all your email are to a MocnyKomputer.pl, that's not ASUS. It seems to me you are actually complaining about the computer shop you bought it from giving you bad customer service; not actually ASUS. Am I crazy here? :cautious:

    5800X3D gaming review

    The 2500K had a long life because for a long time AMD was so far behind that there was little reason to upgrade to anything even from Intel's side. That is no longer the case and I will still advise against upgrading to an EOL platform.

    5800X3D gaming review

    I would advise against upgrading to an end of life platform. This chip really is only a reasonable upgrade for those already on AM4.

    The Streamline is a Lie

    What? ATI had the first consumer card with hardware tessellation in 2001 as GoodBoy said, and AMD didn't buy ATI until 2006. AMD had fuck all to do with hardware tessellation. You seem to be confusing ATI for AMD; they are not the same.

    AMD asks mobo makers to remove OC options for 5800X3D

    Never did, but it's funny watching people defend a corporation that won't even name a chip that is locked differently from all the other chips they produce that are unlocked. Same people would have a conniption if any other company pulled this same play.

    AMD asks mobo makers to remove OC options for 5800X3D

    The 5800X and the 5800X3D are the same exact architecture. The mental gymnastics going on in this thread by some here is impressive, I'll give you that.

    AMD asks mobo makers to remove OC options for 5800X3D

    Everyone here knows what it stands for, but the average user does not and equates it to akin of a k series intel chip that is unlocked and overclock-able.

    AMD asks mobo makers to remove OC options for 5800X3D

    I think my issue is why brand is a 5800X3D instead of a 58003D. The X variants have always implied unlocked and fully overclockable, so this naming to me feels very disingenuous. Imagine Intel releasing a K variant you couldn't overclock; people on this board would be rioting.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    Too true, anyone that has ever lived in a house/apartment with 12' high ceilings can attest to just how much having fans helps with keeping things booth cool in the summer and warm in the winder by simply just circulating air even when the HVAC system reaches temp and shuts off.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    We made fun of it's power consumption because it was barely better than a 970 while using considerably more power. The R9 390 released 9 months after the 970, having only 5% more relative performance while using a whopping 60% more power for that measly 5% performance improvement; at the exact...

    MLID shouts out [H]ardocp - AMD’s fake MSRP

    Where's all the outrage about this? Had something similar been reported about either competitors, the post here would be flying... In any case, it doesn't surprise me at all. I'm more surprised there were suckers believing the $200 "MSRP" to begin with.

    RTX 3050: PC Gaming's answer to the Series S

    Neither $480 nor $600 is realistic. What is realist is that the 6500XT is trash compared to a 3050, and more realistically both of them are not worth the time nor the effort at their street prices. Honestly, the defense of both of these turds is getting laughable.
