    In this case its not microcenter its the aib's that are marking up amd harder than nvidia cards. See here in this 6700xt review msi quoted their own msrp being $789.99 which is hilarious.

    As it stands since companies are legally obligated to do whats best for share holders the sooner they think they have the perfect slaves that can run 24/7 w/o pay the have a duty to cut operational cost even up to ceo's and members of the board.

    Google Employee behind Anti-Diversity Memo Is “Exploring All Possible Legal Remedies”

    Of Nanometers and FinFETs

    You say that the tsmc chip out performs the samsung however I think you're forgetting that even within the same node you have variance between chips, Hell look at the fury nano which only exist because AMD took their best binned fury x chips for power efficiency then locked the whole board down...

    Radeon R9 Nano Small Form Factor Video Card Review @ [H]

    AMD stated in their paper launches that the nano's were the best binned chips ( which is why they won't sell them for less than the fury x). Also if you let the nano use the full 225 watts it can draw vs the 175 watts its capped at with good airflow it runs closer to the 1000mhz clock speed if...

    NVIDIA GeForce Windows 10 Driver

    Not sure if sarcasm or legitimate lack of understanding on your part but windows 10 and dx12 don't magically make games faster. The game would have to be patched to dx12 and there are only 2-3 games that have announced that they will patch dx12 so far.

    Could the 980ti/Titan X be the fastest GPU for a year?

    Because TSMC is not the greatest at keeping up with fab transitions. Nvidia knew this and even called them out years ago here. To be honest after 14/16nm don't expect another shrink for years because even intel had problems getting their 14nm up and running and may be delaying 10nm...

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    Thing is I don't think they could have priced it at 500, if the rumors were correct in that the fury x was going to be priced at $750 - $850 and targeted being a better value than the titan X then nvidia knew exactly what it was doing when it launched that TI at 650 to really really cripple amd...

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    Soo at the end of the day nvidia knew where to aim to cripple amd months in advance with the TI. That said the only ray of hope is that at least amd isn't drastically outclassed by nvidia yet and still has a shot at bouncing back with the 400 series then again piscal could be even more brutal...

    Intel Core i7-6700K ‘Skylake’ de-lidded: small die and NGPTIM found

    MSI Launches The GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G

    Ugh, you do realize he does do temp testing and noise testing right, the only thing he does bad from my perspective is running canned benchmarks which most everyone does still. Temps are the second graph the noise testing he doesn't do a graph but talks about the sound which is anecdotal but...

    AMD R9 Fury X benchmarks leaked, Significantly Faster than the GTX 980Ti at 4K

    You are probably right however for some reason I don't feel like there will be a next gen series of consoles if for nothing else but just the rate at which smart phone tech progresses 5 years from now phone could dwarf what is already in current consoles by a fair margin. That said next...

    Why would AMD release a 4K video card without HDMI 2.0 and with 4 GB of VRAM

    That statement is flawed on so many levels. For one "good" is a relative term and what defines good because good could mean a company that has high profitability i.e. Apple and in Apples case they generally don't stay ahead of the curve they wait for others to innovate then copy that idea and...

    Got a 390x, what do you want to see?

    Here mind you the initial review is that of the stock oc on the card you can oc higher and they do however for the life of me I don't get why they didn't test more demanding games on their oc section.

    Got a 390x, what do you want to see?

    Here is my reasoning, a good amount of people still claim that amd's drivers (single card) are between somewhat bad to atrocious despite the opposite being true a good portion of people have had bad experiences from earlier amd cards (I'm thinking pre 7970) and wont touch them with a 10 foot...

    Got a 390x, what do you want to see?

    Primarily because that is the opinion of most people. I really hope the fury x is at least 30% better than the titan x because honestly that's about the general oc head room the g200's have and what probably a vast majority of people will compare to. That said I doubt it will happen...

    Witcher 3 bad graphics?

    I think you confuse art style & direction with graphics. Besides from what I just googled of the order is that it is no where near as open world as witcher 3 (neither was crysis 1 for that matter.). Having a massive open world comes at a cost compared to dungeon crawlers and shooters on limited...
