    AMD Chief Confirms New High-End GPU: "We Will Be Competitive in High-End Graphics"

    Corvette costs about 3x what a Camaro does, goes just a "little bit" faster, actually has few seats. Neither car is 'really' a race car, track car, nor drag car stock. Apparently, people ARE actually willing to spend money for better performance. Maybe you should join the real world and start...

    How Wide is too Wide?

    I can see using this at a desk where I want a "single desktop" rather than jump across monitors and have a need for a fairly large amount of screen space, but going higher either won't work or won't work well. I can think of a lot of medical/office/security desk jobs facing the public that could...

    Rage 2 Teaser Trailer on Twitter

    The only two things I didn't like about the racing game (well, two and a half things) were 1) and ½) It required you to learn a completely different game mechanic that you may or may not have any experience with (driving sim) and didn't really give you much time or space to do so and 2) The...

    Bethesda Almost Confirms RAGE 2 With New Tweets

    Picked it up on one of the many Steam sales a few years back. (Okay, more than a few years back.) Didn't have the GPU horsepower at the time to play it, but when I put together a new rig in 2015, I was able to clear some of my FPS backlog. I too was hesitant because of the reviews, but I...

    AMD Sales Outpaced Intel's for the First Time in a Decade at Germany's Largest E-Tailer

    I think I'd be more concerned about the million euro drop in CPU revenue from March to June than being impressed by AMD's uptick in sales.

    Quake Champions Early Access Now Available

    Back in MY day, we played fully released games and just assumed that anything broken was a feature and would NEVER be fixed. (It's a 'FEATURE', why would we fix it?)

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X CPU Review @ [H]

    So I suspect, based on the one 3200 Cinebench score that Intel leaked for the i9-7960 (16c) that what it's going to come down to is if you are hardware price constrained, the AMD's TR 1950x is possibly a better way to go for about $700 less in the CPU (everything else being roughly the same) and...

    Intel Coffee Lake Slides Leaked

    Then by all means buy the Ryzen chip. Had AMD actually had a competitive product for the last 6 years or so, this wouldn't be an issue now, would it? Of course one company has been profitable, owns fabs, and has been making strides in process (and processor) technology this entire time while...

    MSI Shows Us How To Install an AMD Threadripper CPU

    WOW!! You can't imagine how long it's been since I've last heard that. My father used to listen to stuff like that. Yeah, that one fits too.

    MSI Shows Us How To Install an AMD Threadripper CPU

    Never underestimate the ingenuity of stupid people and their ability to break fool proof designs. I'm just wondering how many people are going to WORK on taking the Torx screws all the way out first.

    MSI Shows Us How To Install an AMD Threadripper CPU

    Is it just me, or would that video have been much better set to ? (DragonForce- Through the Fire and Flames, seems appropriate)

    Just What does Intel Have up Its Sleeve in Response to Ryzen?

    At this point, it's still largely a non-issue for Intel for a couple of reasons: 1) The Ryzen chips atm compete against Intel's Extreme Edition chips, which are not in any stretch of the imagination, mainstream chips. Effectively both are being marketed to enthusiasts. 2) The cheapest Ryzen...

    Gaming Hardware Needs to Grow Up

    In fairness, have we reached "maximum tail fin" yet?

    Fallout 4 Recommends an AMD RX 490 for High Resolution Texture Pack

    The 490 runs on pixie dust and unicorn farts and now not only accelerates your video, but also washes your windows, cooks your dinner, and tucks you into bed at night and reads you a story :)

    EA Exec: Games Are "Too Hard to Learn"

    If it takes 2 hours to learn how to play a 10 hour game, there 'may' indeed be something wrong with the learning curve on that game. Investing 2 hours into learning to play a game I'm going to play for 50 or 100 hours is a different thing altogether., if you're going to bring...

    Homebuilt 500hp V10 Motorcycle

    It must be show only bike. You notice his knee is actually resting on the valve cover. He wouldn't be able to do this once this thing warmed up a little.
