    Matebook D 14 AMD

    2 weeks later - my wife said "this is my favorite laptop I've ever owned". No quirks, only wish the wal marts around me in Austin weren't out of stock now so I could get one myself.

    Matebook D 14 AMD

    I ended up picking up one for my wife last Sunday. Lasts 8 hours or so doing Google Hangouts/Email/Chrome/Word. She's happy as a replacement for her 1st gen Razer Blade Stealth. I only wish it had 16gb of ram, not sure I could get by on 8gb for VS 2017 + a vm or 2

    Matebook D 14 AMD

    Anyone else excited about the Matebook with Ryzen, hoping it does have "12 hour battery life". Loving my HP ENVY Ryzen laptop, but the battery life is 4 hours max.

    What develeper is best with taking their time making sure it is as close to perfect as possible?

    I tend to think I do, but time tables generally force a release date.

    AMD launches Ryzen Mobile 7 2700U & 5 2500U with Vega Graphics

    Picked two up last night (one for me and one for the wife), the 1TB mechanical that comes with it is a huge let down coming from a Razer Blade Stealth. That being said it looks fairly trivial to swap in a NVMe drive and add another 8gb of ram (swap out the 2 4gb sticks). Will do before and...

    GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Discussion Thread

    After being on Team AMD for the last 10 years I switched back to nVidia. I ended up getting a Gigabyte Waterforce WB Xtreme Edition 11G. Setup my loop, radiator etc. Love how quiet it is even under load, got it overclocked a bit and am getting 20-30% higher FPS in previously CrossFired...

    AMD Launches EPYC Enterprise CPUs Available Today @ [H]

    Shame they don't invite local Austin enthusiasts to these events - would have been neat to have been there. Though I have to say when I was at the Austin Fry's this Saturday the AMD motherboard section has expanded considerably since Ryzen launched.

    GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Evaluation Thoughts

    Been gaming on 4k for the last 2 years - albeit in varying degrees of happiness depending on the game. While I am an AMD fanboy, if RX-Vega doesn't deliver at 4k then I'm going back to nVidia after a 10 year break (GeForce 6800 was my last nVidia card).
