    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    Dudes this is from the blog like side of Bloomberg, just saying. In any case I doubt that the article writer really knows anything due to its record and he's just extrapolating what is known, memory prices are going up everywhere and thus console BOM is going up, he singles one over the other to...

    Intel is losing against AMD

    ? Intel was pretty much a natural monopoly since before bulldozer, in any case not interested in talking to you atm I was stating my opinion after being quoted months after the fact.

    Intel is losing against AMD

    Easy, they are still posting record quarters. That this has to do with the fact that they became pretty much a natural monopoly and not due to the quality of their current products annoys me greatly. Yes, they are still in a weakened position even with the record quarters and if they don't get...

    In Theory: How SSD Could Radically Change Next-Gen Games Beyond Faster Loading

    In Theory: How SSD Could Radically Change Next-Gen Games Beyond Faster Loading

    A type of amd SSG implementation pretty much. I mean, the tech exists and is in use for select professional products (energy design and the like), they think that it could be used that way in consoles. No, it isn't the same as a page file because the driver needs to be directly accessible by...

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    That's the point, Navi doesn't need 12Tf to beat GCN 12Tf, the actual quote from Spencer was "when you do the math it's twice the power", the expression can mean that it is twice the effective output and is more likely than a gpu that would equal a 2080 from Nvidia, alongside ram, ssd, cpu and 1...

    Xbox Series X GPU is better than any Navi GPU released so far

    *12Tf is the equivalent most likely in GCN, which in reality gives us a regular 5700 XT ish gpu. Thinking that it is 12Tf naturally at that rumored package price is wishful thinking at best, don't fall on that hype and you won't get disappointed with the reality. A 5700 - 5700 XT is still a...

    Switch From Windows to Linux

    Yeap amd dropped the ball hard with the 5700 Linux drivers, only Ubuntu was supported and everyone else had to wait for Mesa 19.3, in the case of manjaro stable build that should come on the first two weeks of January.

    China's Latest Loongson CPUs Are On Par With AMD's Excavator

    Laptop excavator was a 15w cpu (VS 50w for the chinese current version), desktop excavator was later on 2016 as a 65w cpu https://www.anandtech.com/show/10436/amd-carrizo-tested-generational-deep-dive-athlon-x4-845 It's pretty great for them to have a cpu but again let's not sensationalize the...

    China's Latest Loongson CPUs Are On Par With AMD's Excavator

    Agreed, it was seriously insane how some posters really wanted in on the action. Bizarro world like.

    China's Latest Loongson CPUs Are On Par With AMD's Excavator

    50w at 2GHz for the 4c with IPC equal to excavator all the while on the 12nm process tells me that it's quite far from the actual excavator from AMD which wasn't a stellar architecture. This alongside the thread in which certain posters hoped to jump into the Chinese cpus must be quite the...

    The most important PC games of the decade

    Every year a decade ends, but I have to point out that THE Decade ends next year and not this one. The calendars were created without knowing the concept of zero (this came later from our Arab friends) and thus they all start in the year 1, thus the first Decade was from the year 1-10th, second...

    Intel Tiger Lake Engineering Sample Reportedly Hits 4.0 GHz on All Cores

    Please link me the 4.9 ice lake at 10w, the only rumors /reports I've seen were fed/pushed to hell, the standard is 3.9 GHz when not pushed beyond the actual wattage envelope by far. Edit Found 1 ice lake that turbos to 4.1 1c instead of 3.9, and not the 10w part. You are mixing speeds a lot I...

    Intel Tiger Lake Engineering Sample Reportedly Hits 4.0 GHz on All Cores

    I've only seen 4.9 single core, if they had that all core with the IPC increase it would make headlines. Their all core is waaaaaaaay lower than 14nm, and that 4.9 was with stars aligned, it's easy to go to game's nexus and the like and see how massively lower are the actual clocks of the...

    Nvidia announces 6 more games with ray tracing

    PewDiePie quits YouTube saying he's too tired to go on

He made a meme about it on Twitter, but he temporarily deleted Twitter too since again, vacation, it's the...

    China-Based Zhaoxin Targets 2021 for 7nm CPUs With PCIe 4.0, DDR5 Support

It will be serviceable for the governmental offices of China, well yeah, even arm cpus could be used for most office work, but beyond that is a...

    1.5x the total volume of a ps4 pro. There are also renders of how it would look on usual media center configurations. It may be rather chunky, but if you can fit a GameCube (x3 side by side), then you can fit the series x.

    New PlayStation 5 renders show off radical different design, again

    I guess that it depends on where you are, but a box with a metallic screen top like that I have seen in some funeral parlors as an ashtray only type of trashcan, with the grid making it unable to accept other types of trash. Personally I haven't made that comparison but I do get why some claim it.

    Xbox X

    My real issue with the box shape : It won't fit with other systems in a media center, and when your brand isn't number one worldwide this matters. You want to attract the secondary customers, not make it seem like you wouldn't even fit and thus, why should they bother buying you? The design...

    You are confusing the development kit with an actual console. Heck the standard development kit looks like a vcr, they just went special to make note that this was their fifth but otherwise it would be a literal black rectangular box.

    defaultluser Well that's also part of the reason why I said that checkerboard was the name of the game most likely if true. With checkerboard 4k, you are actually looking at equivalent 1500p requirements (for 2160p CB) since you only calculate half of the pixels every frame and do a smart...

    Next-gen Xbox Scarlett specs: 12TFLOPs, 16GB RAM, 3.5GHz Zen 2 CPU

    Hmm every leak I've seen says Anaconda = 16GB total system ram, that's os+games, with games having access to 13GB for both the game and video. These numbers do seem weak to me, but I guess that checkerboard will be the name of the game for 4k.
