    Crytek Demos Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections Running on an AMD Vega 56

    Wonderful video results. I thought the reflections in Crysis 3 were excellent already, but this goes far beyond. As a card-carrying Crysis trilogy fanboy I'd love to see Crytek use this to breathe new life into that series.

    Researchers Find a 19 Year Old Bug In WinRAR

    Just delete UNACEV2.DLL - that completely eliminates the risk*. Then patch or update WinRAR if you want. *See https://research.checkpoint.com/extracting-code-execution-from-winrar/

    Gamers Love Call of Duty 15's New Loot Boxes

    So a lack of gratuitous rudeness = beating around the bush? Nice logic trick there - for the simple-minded. Having found a site / forum where the discussion is usually knowledgeable and not sunk in flame wars, I'll make some effort to keep it that way. Just block me if it bothers you.

    Researchers Find a 19 Year Old Bug In WinRAR

    Kudos to [H] for being the only site on the internet that didn't put this up with a "500 million users in deadly peril" clickbait title.

    That's a nasty reply to a very reasonable post.

    Hardware Unboxed Calls NVIDIA DLSS "The Biggest RTX Fail of Them All"

    Why did you work in a slam against AMD? Just curious, as it's so totally off-topic, and glaringly inconsistent with your claims of being both unbiased and anti-bias.

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    All of the groups in BF V were really in the war, and paid the price of being at the tip of the spear. Their stories are valid topics for the game; arguably the more so because as numerical minorities they are generally unknown. Except to their families and nations, of course. Your...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    This is one of the dumbest comments I've seen. First, if you wanted a game about Auschwitz or Babi Yar, you must have misunderstood the ads. I can't remember any game that has ever focused on the horrors - but you pick on BF V as being remiss in this? Second, what "politics" were injected...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    Here I agree with you 1000%. Game devs and publishers - not to mention gamers - have no idea how much fun and replay value they're losing with a checkpoint-only system. Crysis was a model in this regard - you could save at any time and thus revisit every aspect of every scenario, playing them...

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    Yes - especially if it's left out of a quote. The game dev responded forthrightly and isn't responsible for his remarks being misrepresented down the line, especially by journos who can read English. The people who misrepresent them are responsible. And what Sony did or didn't ever say -...

    Well, here in BF V they did, and look at the complaints.

    EA's Head Blames Marketing, Development Delay for Low "Battlefield V" Sales

    That's out of context, of course. The game dev laid out the reasons for their character choices, said they weren't going to back down or apologize for those, and if folks couldn't deal with that they could just not buy. Seems pretty fair and straightforward to me. In fact it's the kind of...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    Well, that's pretty solid evidence that it was all made up: nothing you happened to see elsewhere had the story. And that's enough for you to wander in and call him a liar. Amazing - and sad.

    AMD Radeon Navi GPUs Reportedly Delayed until Q4 2019

    Source? Or just ranting / BS? If the latter, why do you think it's needed in this thread? It now appears that Navi delay from what the December leaks indicated will be due to several factors, including a needed re-tapeout; wafer contamination at TSMC; and demand from other platforms. AMD...

    AdoredTV Analyzes AMD Engineering Sample Benchmarks

    Well, his chosen medium is video! If you don't like videos because you find them inefficient, why are you even in this thread? Did you not know it was a video when you watched it? Or what? And he has worked to reduce his accent, with success - though what thanks he gets for that I don't...

    AdoredTV Analyzes AMD Engineering Sample Benchmarks

    We must be watching different videos . From all I've seen, AdoredTV's info on sources, and what is speculation vs leaks etc, is above and beyond. Check your DNS settings... they may have been hijacked. That would explain a lot. Oh - :p

    AdoredTV: What Is Zen 2?

    And you're in this thread of "best guesses on Ryzen 2"... why? AMD announcements are on their site! Plus, you're choosing to refer to leaks as "rumor". Big difference, as AdoredTV explains. Gotta wonder why these posts on investigative work draw so many Captains Obvious stating that we can't...

    AdoredTV: What Is Zen 2?

    AdoredTV is putting the latest pieces of info into the puzzle, firming up parts of the picture that weren't even addressed at CES. The poor guy probably thinks this is what people want - evidence to back predictions. Sigh.

    AdoredTV: What Is Zen 2?

    Surprising, the number of folks reading [H] who are bored with details of major but unannounced CPU releases. AdoredTV can't win. When he breaks the leaks pointing to 12C 5GHz in December, everyone calls bullshit and "too good to be true". Now he pieces together more and more new evidence...

    The Los Alamos National lab Is Studying Methods of Deflecting Asteroids

    This somehow reminds me of the classic (of many classic) Grin 'N Bear It cartoons: Air Force brass are gathered around a radar screen showing blips. One says "They're unidentified flying objects - let's shoot one down and see if they're friendly".

    Ford Is Developing a Powerful All-Electric F-Series Truck

    So now our rancher wannabees can shop for groceries at the electrical equivalent of 12 mpg - assuming you can still drive one of these with cowboy boots. Well, that will at least be an improvement over today, with the smog and the boots..

    Intel Changed Its Spirit in 2018

    That's moving a little fast. It will be a "new norm" when its a solid part of Intel's culture, not when they've just begun talking about it. So at least another week. And the same for being a model for others - which slyly implies that others even need such help! Puhleeze... Intel's desktop...

    USB-C Audio Is "Dead"

    I voted with my wallet. Just bought a top Samsung phone, rejecting comparable phones specifically because they don't have 3.5mm. Others are free to debate technical and convenience merits, but that's a feature I want and will pay for.

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup

    ??? AMD has credibly demo'd a chip that does exactly as described, beating Intel's current best at much less power. Which actually means thrashing Intel's best. You say this conclusion is "unfair" because... umm... Intel doesn't have a better chip to demo. Got it.

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup

    Except - AdoredTV specifically doesn't do that. Have you even watched one of his videos?? He physically shows every single source he has used, identifies them via links, and details the thought process of arriving at his own conclusions. He is very careful to distinguish between speculation...

    AMD Cinebench Benchmark Demo at CES 2019 Buries the Current Intel Lineup

    Grammar such as "I was like nope"? At least AdoredTV isn't using such brainless language-degrading neologisms. If he did, then it would truly be hard to enjoy his engaging analytical work.

    AMD Confirms Refreshed Radeon Product Stack for 2019

    I'm glad these guys are a lot smarter technically than they are with the language. You don't "round out a roadmap". You might complete a roadmap, or present one, or follow one to round out a product line. And he repeats it, as if that adds more info. Sorry.. can't help it...

    Here are AMD's Radeon VII Benchmarks

    Radeon VII probably doesn't matter much. AdoredTV (and others) have suggested that it's only being produced to sell off a limited number of excess Radeon Instinct chips. And of course it gives AMD the right to claim the "first 7nm consumer graphics card"; fair enough. But look at the...

    Intel Introduces New 9th Gen Desktop Processors

    So Intel introduces "A New World Of Innovation" (their slide) and we all scoff. Actually, it literally is all of us - that's got to be a first. Intel really has some work to do, if not in engineering then at least in PR.

    IBM Reveals the World's First Commercial Integrated Quantum Computer

    No - the real question is if it can run Crysis. It's interesting how the description of physical bulk, environmental and maintenance provisions etc recall similar aspects of the first huge electronic computers from the 1940s and 50s.
