    Respawn Bans Over 355,000 Apex Legends Cheaters

    Now that I'm thinking about it.... I was only able to play a bit last night (Sunday) this past weekend. I don't remember being lasered from across the map once... Hurray! I lost because I suck, not because of cheaters!

    JPR Releases New GPU Market Share Statistics

    So far this card is silent and stays under 55C at full load with undervolting/overclocking. However, it is over 12" long and weighs a ton.

    JPR Releases New GPU Market Share Statistics

    I hopped on that Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro+ deal for ~$400 last week. I was tired of waiting for Navi and my GTX 1060 6GB wasn't cutting it for Apex Legends. $100 less than a RTX 2070 with performance between the 2070 and 2070 Ti made it an easy decision. Side Note: Has anyone else noticed the high...

    The 16GB of HBM2 on the Radeon VII Is Needed for Real World 4K Video Production

    Shhhh, don't tell the fanboys that this isn't a pure gaming card. They won't understand because it doesn't have ray trace invaders.

    Slack Files for IPO

    For Windows: notifications don't work, searching is too slow, saving a file to your local machine through Slack is awkward, it likes to prevent Windows from restarting, and it doesn't minimize to the notification area when you click the "X" (it stays on the task bar). These things happen even...

    How Well Do FreeSync Monitors Work with NVIDIA GPUs?

    Stutter-fest on my 24UD58-B + GTX 1060. However, I am using triple monitors, two with DSR@UHD (4x scaling). IME, Nvidia cards seem to get finicky with 3+ monitors. Oh well.

    AMD Radeon VII Interview with Scott Herkelman @ [H]

    What motivation does Nvidia have to move away from G-Sync other than pressure from a competitor? How many times has platform cost been talked about on [H] for GPU+monitor? Nvidia likes making money. They aren't going to suddenly move to an open standard when they have a functional closed...

    AMD Is Developing a DXR Capable GPU and More Third Generation AMD Ryzen News

    How many times did ATI make this mistake? Hardware features before software implementation is usually not a great business plan. Sidenote: Dr. Lisa Su is THE pillar of current AMD. The recent difference in professionalism vs Jensen Huang is astounding.

    Here are AMD's Radeon VII Benchmarks

    I got my GTX 1060 6GB new for $190 in June of 2017. I get ~4K 60FPS in most things with some settings tweaked. I'm waiting for the next card to replace this at the $200 price point.

    There are a bunch of places selling it for $174.99. Newegg just happened to sell out at the sale price of $164.99. You won't see or feel a difference between the HP and the 970 Evo. Not worth the extra $/GB CPU maxes out at 2933 natively. Returns greatly diminish after that. High speed RAM...

    If you are mostly gaming, browsing, there is no reason to get the additional RAM right now. Plus, it is way easier to add RAM later than deal with moving your OS. If it were me, I'd keep the SSD (32GB of RAM would cost more than the difference from 1TB to 500GB SSD anyway) and save a RAM upgrade...

    Is this it? https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=100-B1-0600-KR If so, time to upgrade. I would be surprised if that PSU could do 500W for 30 minutes without catching fire, let alone 600W. There is so much more to PSUs than 80Plus ratings and wattage.

    What model EVGA PSU do you have? You said 600W, but that doesn't tell me much. If it isn't a higher end model that is 80PLUS Gold or better, I would upgrade. The one I listed has a crazy 12 year warranty. What HSF do you plan to use? You are right to wait on replacing the GPU until the next wave...

    Nvidia Uses Neural Network to Render 3D Environments

    I was thinking the same sort of thing when I was watching the video. This tech is a pandora's box. Between this, AI facial mapping and AI voice modulation, imagine where all this tech will be in 5 or 10 years. Scary stuff when you think about it.

    Intel Exec Discloses Discrete GPU Details and Strategy
