    AMD Threadripper 3990X CPU has the raw power to run Crysis without a graphics card

    If you can convince AMD to sample us a Threadripper I can make this happen.

    Radeon RX 5600 XT Launch Review Round Up

    Our update review just published. Minutes before we dropped it yesterday, they sent us a 14gbps bios. Brent tested all day, and by night, they said the 14gbps is on hold as it needs more engineering validation, so the 12gbps article was published this morning. So, as of now, XFX is officially at...

    Radeon RX 5600 XT Launch Review Round Up

    Our XFX contact says that they're consulting with their engineering group to find out the answer on 12 vs 14. That's the update we got in the past hour - honestly wouldn't put faith in the XFX memory speed quite yet....

    Radeon RX 5600 XT Launch Review Round Up

    We did at The FPS Review as well (Ryzen 2700X). If you're speaking of the 5500 XT differences between PCIe 3 and 4, those are more related to swapping of GPU memory back to system memory that should only occur in some games that are aggressive on memory use...

    Radeon RX 5600 XT Launch Review Round Up

    I met with AMD at CES a couple weeks ago and asked them this specific question. They more or less said that the 5700 deals over Christmas/Black Friday in the upper $200s were temporary and they expect the 5700 pricing to return to the $350 ballpark (if it hasn't already). Quite frankly, this IS...

    Radeon RX 5600 XT Launch Review Round Up

    The embargo has been lifted on the Radeon RX 5600 XT, AMD's so-called "Ultimate" 1080p gaming card. There are no reference cards this time around, so you'll see offerings from a variety of manufacturers around the web today. I'll keep adding them here as I see them. This has been getting a bit...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    I played on the laptop earlier tonight with the DG1 graphics. Destiny 2 was running at 1080p on low settings and I'm not sure I'd say it was perfectly playable - there responsiveness felt fairly soft to me. They stressed that it's still an early version that should improve before actual release...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2060 SUPER Review Roundup

    According to the press briefer, they aren't officially EOL yet but the expectation is that the market will speak as to whether they continue. Translation? They are EOL and will be priced to move considering how they compare to the SUPER cards and will disappear when stock runs out.
