    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I've kind of accepted the fact that it's unlikely I'll be able to get a card at MSRP within this year. I'm looking to get the PS5, hopefully soon before someone figures out how to mine on these consoles :eek: I've always had a PS console to play the exclusives, and JRPGs. So I'll focus on those...

    So if ps3 store closes does patches go also?

    Well, its official now. At least we'll still be able to download our stuff after the store closure. For now anyway. Wish I had collected more physical copies. Those things are going to increase in value now, lol.

    Nvidia's GeForce GPU shortage isn't improving anytime soon...or later.

    I guess one good thing about gaming console is that you do not need to compete against bitcoin miners I think even the scalper prices are quickly dropping, making it less desirable to them I don't see an end to GPU woes, between scalpers and bitcoin miners buying them up, hardly anything is...

    Sony removes Cyberpunk from the PS playstore

    While I agree that CPD needs to take responsibility for releasing the game in such a bad state on old consoles, I cannot agree with the media or content creators calling the entire game a failure, just because of how bad the game is on the PS4. If the game is working significantly better on the...

    PC Gamer - AMD RX 6800 XT runs at almost half the frame rate of Nvidia's RTX 3080 in Vulkan Ray Tracing tests

    It surprises me that some still think RT is an nVidia gimmick, when AMD and the new gen consoles have all hop on it. RT is one of the marketed selling points for the new gen consoles. Back when programmable shaders were introduced, we didn't immediately get full dynamic lighting and shadows...

    TMSC Is Reportedly Terminating Bulk Discounts and Increasing Prices

    I hope Intel can fix whatever issue they are facing with their fab and get back in the competition. This is bound to happen with the kind of market share TSMC have today.

    GPU sales rise across the board, from AMD and Intel to Nvidia

    I hope availability wont be as bad if/when RTX 3080 Ti comes out. Already got my Cyberpunk 2077 copy, but no GPU to play it at the moment. Not with all the raytracing goodness anyway:cry:

    How my current Gaming PC compares to 2020 Consoles

    My current PC is better on the CPU front (3950x, more cores and faster clock speed) But my GTX 1080 is certainly worse. This will be addressed once I get my hands on a RTX 3080 :)

    Potential RTX 3000 buyers...what monitors will you be driving?

    Currently a 1440p @165Hz g-sync monitor. Once I upgrade my GPU, next year's upgrade will be the monitor, which I'm aiming for 4k @ 144Hz I'm a little disappointed that the new GPU will not come with Display port 2.0 Though, there's no any upcoming monitor with DP2.0 either

    Would you choose a 12GB or a 24GB RTX 3090?

    With memory compression, I think its less straightforward to predict how much VRAM the new GPU will need. If it comes with a more efficient method, maybe it'll consume lesser VRAM compared to previous generations. I'll wait for the reviews to see if 24GB offers any advantage over 12GB when it...

    AMD Ryzen 4000 Rumored to Offer Around 17% Increased Performance

    Here I am still waiting for 3950x to be available where I live here. I admit I'll be disappointed if the 16cores Zen 3 comes out 6 months after I build my PC. If it comes out 12 months later, I'd consider that a normal progression

    Electronic Arts and Valve Announce Partnership to Bring EA Access Subscription and EA Games to Steam

    I live in Asia, and Steam is the only PC game store that offers localized prices that makes more sense to us than a direct conversion from USD. Gears 5 for example, on Steam it cost less than half of what it is in Microsoft Store. I don't see the harm in having options. Not like EA will stop...

    I still remember being excited when I read about the benchmark result of the 9700 Pro. Those were the days when games were pushing hardware. Couldn't afford one thought, and I got the 9600 Pro instead. Which was still an amazing card for its segment at that time.

    I haven't been keeping myself up to date with the latest GPU news, but IIRC the last AMD offering was around the level of a RTX 2080 So, can I expect this PS5 Navi to be better than that? Or maybe a cut down version that is at least on par with RTX 2080.

    Ubisoft Creates Exclusive Partnership with Epic Games to Sell The Division 2

    Thing is, it doesn't actually encourage competition when they remove the game from one store and sell it exclusively in another store. It's only when a game is available on multiple stores, that these stores have to compete for our purchase. Here I'll agree with you, that it's fine to have...
