    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    Maybe in years past it was as much (or more) not about AMD and them being unable to keep up to Intel as much as it was about Intel making (or taking that) next gen leap so much so they really didn't have a (working) viable product in none of their 3 (or more) engineering teams (for future...

    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    ------- Steam Survey, it pops at least every couple of months, and sometimes monthly (which is fair given often systems I'm working with change) - I always say yes. My guess if someone asks Steam how they pull account names for Surveys they will tell.

    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    ------- You nailed it right there... I'd even bet on it.

    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    ------- ------- I agree, though there is also a market (by no means the main stream volume) that buys Titan RTX and Ti's for gaming with whatever the top Frame Rate delivering CPU there is on the market paired with high frame rate Monitors - Its a (slowly) growing market where we are seeing...

    confirmed: AMD's big Navi launch to disrupt 4K gaming

    It feels as though there's a selective choice of words (from AMD) on big Navi... At a time when we are seeing many new monitors (including IPS) at 240Hz and even higher - so what about 240Hz (and better) gaming at 1080P and 1440P? Is AMD really stating they are focused on a Gaming card centered...

    AMD reveal next-gen ‘Nvidia killer’ graphics card at CES?

    In terms of performance, the Navi 21 GPU is said to be at least twice as fast as the Navi 10 GPU. The Radeon RX 5700 XT is the best case for the Navi 10 GPU and it comes close to the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, so the Navi 21 GPU could exceed the RTX 2080 SUPER's performance and even end up coming...

    i9-10920x discontinued already or ???...

    ------- No matter the rant, for the moment, Intel is still holding their own for gaming (HEDT too for that matter in Gaming/Streaming) - What's complicated about building a system with Intel? X299 as same with Z390 is still the same Chipset (nothing suddenly became more complicated) - Actually...

    i9-10920x discontinued already or ???...

    ----- Intel appears to have but given up (at the moment) - I'm impressed with my i9-10920x - just letting the x299 Apex Board do all the work it holds 4.8GHz all core with ease - games (bundled with Titan RTX, Intel 905P SSD, X550-T1 NIC, and AE-9 sound) are very solid high frame rates (on...

    i9-10920x discontinued already or ???...

    I did get my retail unit i9-10920x from Newegg - however I’ve not seen a single other person get/have one. There’s much room to do even a paper launch much better in the world of Intel.

    i9-10920x discontinued already or ???...

    That could be so - maybe updated part number - or perhaps one of the parts they are moving over to Samsung to manufacturer? Strange to me how Intel is having such a hard time keeping up at a time when AMD has taken over a big chunk of sales - you'd think if anything Intel would have an...

    Is it safe to buy a used video card? This guy has to be buzzing ...

    Normally if I have few cards, I email them and they will work with you - While as pointed out, its not always a better price than private sale may bring, however, they provide the shipping label for you, even the box if you wish, and once they get the card, its fast payment and you never need...

    i9-10920x discontinued already or ???...

    NE pulled it this morning... noticed few other (very small) etail have now done the same. I haven't built the system that will have it (10920x) just yet - it will be interesting seeing it up and running (clocks and such) now.

    Intel just released (11-25-19) the new 10 series i9's including the i9-10920x - The Intel product page is gone, its no longer listed on Intel's Core X page - the Newegg listing I bought from shows may not be restocked. Has anyone heard anything on if some (or all) of the i9-10 series being...

    Is it safe to buy a used video card? This guy has to be buzzing ...

    I sell mine to sellgpu unless its a friend - its the other way around for me (my opinion) in that times in the past you bump into buyers who get your card, overclock the crap out it, buddy tells them don't buy it - and they want a return or try charge-back (with my job, often end up with many...

    AMD X570-successor to be Third-Party Sourced

    ...and ALi - We had VIA, SiS, nForce, ALi - There may not be good profits in chipsets, none the less Intel was always at work to make solid new gen chipsets - to which lead them to many years of having solid products vs 3rd party/class product.

    1080P vs 1440P for gaming?

    Old post but interesting topic with 165Hz and even 240Hz (coming this fall) 1440P (including IPS) monitors - In First Person Shooters, how is the target size affected - 27" 1080P vs 27" 1440P how are the targets (aiming at) scaled?

    Intel Skipping 10nm, 7nm Desktop CPUs 2022 [Updated]

    I guess this plays into the comments that Intel looks to best compete by dropping prices having deep pockets and a strong 14nm lineup (refreshes to come it looks like too). "Intel seems to have dropped all plans for a 10nm desktop processor launch and are now aiming to release 7nm desktop...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    ------- On 9900k system with Titan RTX - I left everything at default other than 100% res scaling, and turned off all motion blurs - also turned off min. rates (after changing them to 300 each, menu and in-game) - During TDM matches the lowest I remember seeing was 191FPS when call in streaks -...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    ----- Field of view 90 and render scale 100% - was able to hold right around 240fps (on 240Hz monitor) which in realism mode was easily possible - I do same thing, all sync's off - and used AK47 most of time, mp5 some of the time. Late today in realism mode they changed few things like...

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    Do you guys think its AMD holding back to see what Intel launches... perhaps sets the ground work for pricing of next Threadrippers along with gives AMD a bit longer to firm things up to get the max performance out of 3950X? Lisa Su in my opinion plays a better game than all past AMD leaders -...

    AMD Delays 3950X Launch, says TR3 is coming...

    AMD previously told us that it's long-awaited Ryzen 9 3950X, a 16-core 32-thread behemoth destined for the mainstream desktop, would arrive in September 2019, but today the company announced it is delaying the release for unspecified reasons until November. The company did throw us a bone...

    240hz gaming

    Excellent review on 240Hz - reaction times are better at 240Hz, even better than 12ms, every test subject was more likely to make kill, better aims, and of course smoother game play. Live gaming Filmed 4k 1,000 frames per second in a controlled game setting. Does 240Hz Matter for Gaming ft...

    240hz gaming

    Zowie has perhaps one of the best examples of 144Hz vs 240Hz when playing a first person shooter game - at 240Hz (with the a system up to gaming at 200+ frames) there's some benefit in not only getting the shot off first, but more accurate - Of course its not all as simple as going out and...

    2080 Ti and/or Titan RTX BLACK coming soon...

    Titan RTX launched at $2499 and right now at nvidia is still $2499 - Volta of course was $2999, however Titan Xp before it was just $1200 - I've yet to see a Titan (I've owned them all other than Volta) drop in price once launched.

    Ryzen 3000 boost clock controversy - der8auer publishes his survey results, not a good look for AMD

    ------- I don't really know from a legal standpoint (I'm sure there a few lawyers in here for that anyways) - From a consumer standpoint, AMD has defined what they mean (single best core peak clock) - if their products don't hit these marks - It will be interesting to see if that translates...

    Ryzen 3000 boost clock controversy - der8auer publishes his survey results, not a good look for AMD

    Only one core will hit AMD's rated boost frequency - AMD confirmed some cores in Ryzen 3000-series processors are faster than others, which is denoted in Ryzen Master. That means that not all cores on can hit the single-core turbo frequencies. Instead, there are a mix of fast and slow cores...

    Ryzen 3000 boost clock controversy - der8auer publishes his survey results, not a good look for AMD

    ------- Interestingly when I first saw this chart (just ahead of launch), to me, 3200MHz c14 looks as the sweet spot - 3733MHz c17 is hard to find (memory that will hit those speeds that doesn't come at a high price). AMD seems overly excited at times (in pr marketing side of things) - The...

    AMD gains in discrete, overtakes Nvidia overall GPU Shipments....

    --- I can see that being so with the Ti at $1200 (depending on how strong or not it really sells of course) - However the Titan RTX at $2,499.00 (compared to $699 for 2080 super), it would be interesting to see sales numbers and profit margins - Unless the Titan has some crazy cost(s)...

    AMD gains in discrete, overtakes Nvidia overall GPU Shipments....

    Story has been updated... however iGPU part is valid (is it cpu sale or gpu sale really as well) - It will be interesting seeing some RX 5700 series sales numbers as/when they become available - I'd still love to see the profit (not just total sales) of nVidia top end (Ti and Titan) - They are...

    240hz gaming

    —- Actually you made great point - 240Hz is not going to make much or any difference unless going to be able to have a system up to the task (minor improvements sure, enough for most to move up to prolly not). If going have system, and it’s fast pace game - certainly it’s noticeable to a point...
