    Threadripper 3990X 64C HEDT Outperforms Dual Xeon Platinum 8280 CPUs Costin $20K

    Maybe I am stupid, but that's a chart for dual socket systems, making it $14,000 and 128 cores vs $20,000 and 56 cores, not $7,000 and 64 cores. Intel's not doing *that* badly per core.

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Star Trek used to be an extremely Liberal show where the needs of the few or the one outweighed the needs of the many. Woke shows are progressive, not liberal. Human rights are not a thing, only inverting power structures for the hell of it. People like Pol Pot end up being the good guys. Star...

    Intel Core i9-10900K 10-Core Comet Lake-S Monster CPU Leaks With 5.1GHz Turbo Clock

    A PCIe 4 GPU only needs an x8 slot. That frees up cpu lanes for all sorts of other shit.

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

    We have Alyx coming out real soon now. If its good enough to move VR sets then people are gonna want halo cards too. If Valve have cracked that nut then disruption will happen like we haven't seen since Quake and hardware T&L. Disruption in the video editing space isn't coming from AMD, its...

    Intel is losing against AMD

    Athlon 64 wasn't only fast it demolished Itanium by pushing 64 bit to x86 and in multicore. This time Intel hasn't invested billions in replacing x86, they just stumbled several times in a row. Maybe their culture is borked this time?

    EVGA Showcases New Nu Audio Pro Card

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

    I bet they would be super happy to put a chunk of NVME in the package to store all the secure shit. Anything of chip can be sniffed far more easily. Their priority with a console is building a secure system without physical control of the hardware. A bunch of delicate shit under a soldered lid...

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

    The main upside will be Console developers learning to properly use 16 x86 threads to squeeze out performance, especially if they are not clocked particularly high. That will mean PC games will rapidly become much more demanding on CPUs.

    AMD Ryzen 4000 Rumored to Offer Around 17% Increased Performance

    Consoles are going to be stuck at 8 cores, so game dev will be limited to that for a while. Unless we all start hosting personal AI assistants @ home, nothing is going to stretch the legs of these machines for a while. We can comfortably game and encode live streams on the same damn chip.

    Apple's New Mac Pro Costs $53,000 When You Max Out the Specs

    Davici Resolve runs a lot faster on a VII than on a TITAN, so quad fancy Vegas are really promising. But for everything else single threaded clockspeed is super important so Threadripper is life. However, Apple really really fucking hates professionals. More than enough reason to stay away.

    Intel Core i9-9900KS Review: The Fastest Gaming CPU Bar None

    Shit guys. In a pro editing workflow on modern hardware in the same application like DaVinci Resolve, some parts work best on a single thread so a 9900KS, some love Threadrippers, but Epyc's even more, and some looooove VII's more than even Quadros. In fact fuck quadros. So if there is a lot of...

    AMD Rome EPYC Zen2 reviews

    Goes twice as fast, 40% cheaper. Yet apparently this would be impossible for them to do to nVidia because business. But still, imagine nVidia getting this colossally murdered. A card fully twice the speed of a 2080ti for the price of a 2070. That's how far up shit creek Intel is right now.

    Is nVidia trying to bring back SLI in OpenGL?

    You don't even really want SLI which only gives a marginal boost, you want each eye rendering separately for twice the frame rate and half the latency. But you have to keep the two eyes in perfect sync. Nvidia Quadro cards have a genlock option that allows you to sync outputs from different...

    Is nVidia trying to bring back SLI in OpenGL?

    Nvidia fell for an orchestrated pricing trap says AMD exec

    It's not 4D chess. Its launching a card vs a massive incumbent who has piles of tech they are sitting on. You know your first move can't be your best. 4D chess would have been having a 5800 and 5800xt ready to pull forward Nvidia's new tech, then a 5900 and XT ready to go after that, with the...

    Who's planning to buy 5700(?) GPU

But I don't want to shell out for old tech. :/ Maybe they will have replaced it by the time Rome or Z2 TR's drop... I am ready to build some next gen pcie4 all nvme raid uber...

    Why does raytracing suck so much, is it because of nvidia's bad hardware implementation?

    Its got to keep you up tonight if you are designing consoles... when will everything shift to ray tracing? Will it ever? Will it occur the year after we launch our hardware and look like idiots? If we do a full ray trace console will it be a bit to early and not hold up? Will VR screw us?

    ProRes Raw, a format used by zero cameras. How many streams of BMD Raw or Red RAW or Arri Raw do you think that card decodes? Would you rather have 28 intel cores with 6 channels of ram or 128 AMD cores with 16 when rendering? The Red Rocket was a similar adapter and recently became obsolete...
