    Wild speculation time: Nvidia Ampere might launch as GeForce GTX 2070 and 2080 on April 12th

    Miners don't want mining card, shorter warranty and no resell value for almost the same price is unattractive. Also, trades are already taxed.

    1080ti Pre-order, Retail, and AIB availability watch

    My friday order from Newegg has finally shipped but. I'm in eastern Canada, the warehouse it shipped from is in California U.S instead of Toronto like my usual orders. Even with expedited shipping, guess i'm not playing with it for a while :(

    1080/1070 users - Upgrading to 1080 Ti?

    I'll probably do Fury X to 1080ti. In an AMD Ryzen build. Weirdest combo ever.

    Nixeus debuts new FreeSync monitor lineup at CES.

    All of these high-resolution, high refresh rate freesync monitors, and still no AMD GPU solution to drive them properly, Like they say these days. Wait for Vega.

    I'm a PC gamer but 2017 console exclusives look amazing

    Same issue with VR. I've got a Vive capable system, but game selection looks way better for PSVR in 2017 :(

    Old timers : Do you REALLY enjoy the games today like past games?

    I'm 37 years old, been playing since 12, and i enjoy games today even more, and put in twice as much gaming time today. It may be because i actually have money to buy good hardware, now.

    are you going to abandon intel for ryzen?

    I really wanted to build a Zen + Vega build Q1 2017, but since Vega is late, i won't make the effort anymore. I'll just go with what's best comes summer 2017.

    What do you think the top end Vega model needs to do to be successul?

    It's coming so late, it better be legendary. I would've been happy with 1080 performance if it released with zen. If it releases in the summer, It needs 20% more performance than a 1080 in both DX11 and DX12 to be worth the wait (for me)

    Another 6 months before VEGA?

    Freesync might be the reason. I know i'm stuck with AMD for this reason, and i've already got their best GPU (Fury X) which doesn't cut it anymore at 3440 with high refresh rates. I've been having sub-par gaming experience for more than 6 months and can't do anything until AMD releases Vega.

    Been out of the game a while - Card for 1440p 120hz?

    1080 if you absolutely want to stay around 120. 1070 will do fine for 60-120. 480 is not enough.

    What do you think the top end Vega model needs to do to be successul?

    You're right, i do own a Fury X and it's like a surprise with every new games, you never know how it's gonna perform! I was lucky that mine overclocked by over 10% (i'm at 1105 core) but i really hope AMD comes up with a 1080 killer so that i can upgrade! (I have a freesync 3440 monitor so i'm...

    What do you think the top end Vega model needs to do to be successul?

    Why does everyone forget about the Fury X ? AMD already has a card at 1070 levels.

    What do you think the top end Vega model needs to do to be successul?

    The Fury X i do own already hovers around 1070 levels in most games, so Vega would have to be at least to 1080 levels in all games (and not only in Doom, as seen recently)

    Vega says "Hello World"

    I have a Fury X painfully trying to drive a 3440x1440x75 display and i'm stuck with freesync, so i guess i'll take anything, ha ha ha.

    Vega says "Hello World"

    Fury X does 55.

    Who's still running i5-2500K?

    Thank you to both of you. That confirms my suspicions. Unfortunately my board has absolutely no overclocking options. Time to upgrade :)

    Who's still running i5-2500K?

    I'm still running an i7-2600 @ 3.4 but i'm seeing low minimum FPS in my games, Don't know if it's a memory speed issue or processor speed issue, but will probably upgrade to Kaby Lake.

    Upgrade from an R9 290?

    It's kind of a hard move at the moment, I have the same monitor resolution. 3440x1440@75hz. Had a 290. Upgraded to Fury X. Can't run everything at ultra 75hz even without AA... but can always stay in the freesync range (45-75). So this is cool for now but newer titles could be an issue in...

    AMD Fury owners - Do you like your card?

    I just bough a Fury X to go with my new 3440x1440 75hz freesync display, upgrading from my R9 290. I'm honestly underwhelmed with it's performance. Not running any AA, Witcher 3 runs at 55 fps at Ultra. I can't max out GTA 5 due to ram limitations. Even got less than 30 fps in Metro with...

    Yet another 2600k upgrade question (weak mainboard)

    When i disable Hyperthreading, i'm getting 100% CPU utilization on all 4 cores during my Withcer 3 gameplay, Shoudn't that tell me that i'm bottlenecked by my CPU ? Thanks.

    Yet another 2600k upgrade question (weak mainboard)

    I think the RAM is my biggest issue, since i saw some improvements when switching from CAS9 ram to CAS6 in Fallout 4 min FPS. What makes you think Kaby lake will be a big leap in performance ? Thanks again.

    Yet another 2600k upgrade question (weak mainboard)

    Hello, I'm debating the need to upgrade my rig or not. The 2600k is still a very capable chip, but i made a mistake when i bough it (first build) and bought a pretty bad mainboard. So now i'm stuck at 3.4 GHz (no overclocking capabilities) and DDR 1333 ram (overclocked at CAS 6 though). I...

    Any reason to upgrade my RAM, other than "more of it"?

    I agree. I'm limited at 1333 on my board. Was using CL9-9-9-24 and upgraded to O/C CL6-7-6-19 and it improved my Fallout 4 performance a lot, and also eliminated the mouse lag i was having in Tomb Raider.

    Hyperthreading and bottlenecks.

    Simple question, could not find an answer on Google. With an HT CPU, 4 cpu and 8 logical cores, how can you tell if you're GPU is bottlenecked by your CPU. Does 50% utilisation means bottleneck ? Or does 100% means bottleneck ? Thanks a lot.

    Anyone see the Oculus Rift demo from CES?

    I would pay a huge amount for this, waited for this kind of setup for years. I though the Oculust didn't have separate head and weapon tracking ?

    The Witcher 3 announced, open world, mounts, etc video inside.

    I'm not too sure how the storyline will hold up with an open world, non-linear setting like this. We'll see but right now I'm not too hyped about this. Loved the two firsts games though...
