    Popular and successful games you just don't care for

    I did buy it, and stuck with it through the overly long snowy start, did a few quests from the camp, got on my horse at the nearest town to find it wasn't my horse! Takes years to get anywhere, utter borefest. However, i haven't uninstalled it yet so you never know though i could probably do...

    FuryX completely abandoned now, barely matching the 1060 or 580!

    What about BF5? Forza Horizon? Etc etc? Maybe i dont get out much but some of those games I've never heard of. Is this accurate from you FuryX users out there or is there a little bit of cherry picking going on ?

    2500k mobo is dying after eight years. What's the new bang-for-the-buck CPU?

    2600 and a b450 that supports Ryzen 3000 series. Update the Bios so you're ready to pop in a 3600 or 3700x should you feel the need to. Then keep that combo if you're happy with it or sell the 2600 and put the money towards 3600/3700x

    RX580 Upgrade...nVidia?

    Sapphire v56 pulse is samsung ram, undervolt and hbm oc as N4CR says. Its what i bought with a similar dilemma as yours, 1440p and 300 quid tops Mine was £278 in UK but they're around 250 now, so close to $300 Not sure if US pricing is as good though.

    nvidia specs question

    Definitely worth waiting, see what Navi brings. If you're dead set on nvidia (why?) then wait to see what they bring when Navi drops.

    GeForce GTX 1650 or Geforce 1050 ti ?

    Neither yet, wait for Navi and decide then. 1050ti too expensive for the performance it delivers so the choice should be 1650 or Navi

    Navi Rumors v2.0

    My understanding is that irregardless can be used, on it's own. So , History says the green one, irregardless. Or History says the green one, regardless of all other facts. But then I'm British, what would I know!

    AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast

    2070 performance at 2060 price makes perfect sense to me, as does 2060 performance at 1660 price and so on down the stack.

    Vega 56 + Freesync or RTX 2060 + 60hz

    Vega 56 for me, very close to 2060 in performance using Wattman to tweak and a Freesync monitor. Unless you see a good deal on a 2060 and supported Freesync monitor, as nVidia does certify some these days.

    MSI may not support Zen2 on 300-series

    Then maybe MSi should have qualified their stance on this on Ryzen release, not kept quiet and let motherboards be sold under false pretences.

    MSI may not support Zen2 on 300-series

    Well, for me it was a major factor in buying my B350 Pro Carbon. AMD promised socket compatibility so I bought what I considered to be a quality board to last me. If this is true, it will be the last MSi board i ever buy.

    Which AMD board? Or go Intel?

    I know it's only a B350 board but my MSi Gaming Pro Carbon has been solid since I did the first Bios update on it, with 3200 and that's the standard Corsair Vengeance LPX stuff. Pretty sure the B450 is also really good but I'm only running a R1600 on it.

    RX 580 and 590 Could Get Price Cuts Soon

    Now that, if this rumour is accurate, there's a yawning chasm between the new price of the RX590 and Vega56, how much could AMD realistically drop the price of Vega and still make a small profit, or at least break even?

    GTX 1660Ti reviews out

    Sapphire Vega56 pulse is £280 on Overclockers UK and has been before the AMD news of a price drop. Cheapest 1660ti is £260 Would rather get the Vega and undervolt.

    New RTX 2070 or used GTX 1080TI?

    1080ti or nothing surely? 2070 isn't that much faster than a Vega56 is it? 10%? 15 maybe?

    Gaming PC Build, $2,500

    3 months takes you to May, I would suggest waiting for your Cpu/Motherboard and GPU picks until then. Very close to Zen2 release . 1080ti won't be available then of course but you may find better prices on 2080's by then and a clearer idea of Navi capabilities.

    Department of Justice Charges Huawei and Its Executives with 23 Crimes

    'Not much to steal from Russia' wasn't the point. It was more about separating the crime from the country. Your 2 front point, while not relevant, is interesting though. Much like the way the British conducted their 3 power system.

    Department of Justice Charges Huawei and Its Executives with 23 Crimes

    I'm not justifying it, just noting it. I wonder, if it was China stealing the IP of Russia, would the reaction be as supportive of the Russians? I would like to think so because that would mean the crime is the problem, not which country is losing out.

    Department of Justice Charges Huawei and Its Executives with 23 Crimes

    Did I say it was ok? Nope. Just pointing out some history for you, education innit? Do as you will with it, or do nothing. Incidentally, given that it's a dangerous road to go down,as you say, we should stop now yes? When it is US IP being stolen? Why not stop before when it was British IP...

    Department of Justice Charges Huawei and Its Executives with 23 Crimes

    History repeating itself? It may be a long time ago but the US has been down the same path. In 200 years maybe the Chinese will be crying foul at the next global superpower upstart.

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing RTX 2060 Performance @ [H]

    Presumably you have made nVidia aware of your results, very interested to hear what they say and the spin they may put on it. Great article btw, every other site i've read manages much better results, close to the nVidia party line. Wonder why that is? Yours is the most honest and trustworthy...

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang Dismisses the Radeon VII as "Underwhelming"

    It's a foreign concept to me that you even have to make that choice. Thank goodness for the NHS! If all there is in the $350 price area is a 2060 then i'll have a Vega 56 instead please.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    That's the 4th time you've said exactly the same thing, once here and 3x in the keynote thread. The 2060 has only a bit better performance than a 1070, except 2.5 years later at a similar price. If AMD can release an 8gb version at slightly lower clocks, would be interesting.

    Nvidia Announces the RTX 2060

    It's a 2060. Should be around 250 surely. Performance should go up a level with the price remaining similar to the outgoing card. I'm sure that's how it used to work.

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing RTX 2080 Performance @ [H]

    Also would like to see playable settings with DXR enabled for all 3 cards. Maybe the 2070 would become playable with High BFV settings instead of Ultra? Maybe you could run the 2080 at High/Medium at 1440p? It's a lot of work for you though and you should have some holiday time. :)

    CPU bottleneck??

    Absolutely, and I forgot to mention the massive improvement in multiplayer. I used to only play on 32 player servers in bf1 because the poor old phenom couldn't cope, GTA was also painful at times. I went to a Ryzen 1600 on a Gaming Pro Carbon B350 and 16gb of 3200 ram and I would advise...

    CPU bottleneck??

    Quite possibly, I know from my own experience of going from a Phenom x4 965 to a Ryzen 1600 it felt like I'd had a video card upgrade as well even though I've kept the same 280x as before. Given the card a new lease of life it has.

    XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy OC+ Video Card Review @ [H]

    Great review and food for thought for me, hanging on to my 280x as I am. I wonder what kind of performance you would get if you could push that core to close to 1060 levels. Now I'm torn between this 590 and stumping up a bit more for a Vega 56. I would go up to £350 quid at xmas I think...

    MSI GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING Z Performance Review @ [H]

    Of course it will be a good card, it will also be at nonsense prices, 350 - 400? The review itself is very good and wouldn't disagree with the gold award for the performance, only for the pricing. If only AMD can do something with Vega and Polaris and soon, GDDR6 on those and they would fly...
