    After Ampere Launch Survey

    Waiting for Big Navi launch and reviews. That and EKWB to release blocks for AIB 3080's. Really whatever I buy will need to have available waterblocks. I feel like if Big Navi can come within 10-15% of a 3080 for less money I'll go that route.

    Call of Duty streamer accidentally reveals he's cheating, loses his Twitch channel

    They've made cheating on PC too easy. You don't even need to buy or download hacks. Logitech provides it for you in the form of LGS. Most of these FPS's you can change the fire mode on guns from full to semi. Semi always has a lot less recoil. Then just make a script in LGS to spam the...

    Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War

    It greatly reduces the aiming movement speed when ADS'd when come across an enemy. So, it's not snapping on target, but you can sweep quickly and have it damn near stop on target.

    There's cross play in Modern Warfare. Controllers have a serious advantage with the aim assist.

    Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War

    The new trailer dropped today. Game play looks good. Thank god it's not all cartoony like the last couple Black Ops games. And weapons are real weapons, not some fictitious guns that don't exist. Another cool thing is that not only will it be cross platform, but cross generation on consoles. So...

    Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War

    I've never been a fan of treyarch's versions of cod. They always feel more cartoonish than others devs.

    191 GB for me. People better get used to it. Only going to get larger with all this ray tracing.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    That's the strat I use. Toss a trophy on the big truck and drive around running people over. So funny driving through a hedgerow and killing someone camping in them. I'll know someone is in a building, but they're just camping in a corner. I'll drive circles around the building until the circle...

    NVIDIA GeForce Ampere GPU Rumors:

    2070 Super's are already in the $500's. If rumor is true that the 3070 will be just about as powerful as a 2080ti then you can bet they're going to charge at least $700 for it. Nvidia high on crack with their pricing.

    NVIDIA GeForce Ampere GPU Rumors:

    $699 reference, $799 FE, $800-950 AIB's. That's my prediction for 3070 pricing.

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    Getting back on top has nothing to do with AMD? Then who are they trying to get back on top of? TSMC? It's going to be beyond 2021 before Intel gets ahead of TSMC, at least at this point. TSMC will be on a 5nm node with 3nm in testing before Intel gets to 7nm with acceptable yields.

    Intel Says It Won’t Regain the Lead until 5 Nm

    Sounds like they are assuming that AMD will not continue to innovate and refine. Intel is going to need more than a die shrink. They need a whole new architecture. And, realistically, two whole new architectures.

    NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to feature 2x performance than the RTX 20 series, PCIe 4.0, up to 826 mm² dies and 20 GB of VRAM

    You're not looking at the big picture. Gigabyte, Asus, XFX, whoever, is not making million unit purchases of a given die every quarter. These AIB's don't sell a million 2080's let alone a million mid to high range cards combined, every quarter, each. Their bread and butter is low end OEM cards...

    NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to feature 2x performance than the RTX 20 series, PCIe 4.0, up to 826 mm² dies and 20 GB of VRAM

    that's not how that works. That's not how pricing works at all. M$ is getting their GPU's for next to nothing since they're committed to purchasing 10's of millions of them. Where an AIB will have 10-20k commitments depending on sales. So, strictly fictitious numbers here. If M$ bought 10...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    People out there paying almost $300 for pair of Jordan's. They can charge $500-600 for a game console and get away with it. First adopters always pay the bleeding edge toll.

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

    The this about enterprise sales is that Intel already has contracts in place with HPE, Cisco, Dell to purchase X amount of processors. At least Cisco has already committed to offering their USC blades with EPYC processors. Then comes to the platform issues. In a VMWare environment you can't...

    AMD CTO Mark Papermaster: More Cores Coming in the 'Era of a Slowed Moore's Law'

    Y'all can argue all you want. Benches don't lie. Core heavy CPUs from AMD are mopping the floor with Intel on everything other than gaming. And even that they are only behind about 5% in certain titles.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super

    4.55% own RTX cards, while only 1.46% can actually use RT. Plenty of reviews of 2060's and 2070's showing they simply don't have the power to do ray tracing at any acceptable level. So those people paid $500-600 for cards that can't even do what they are marketed to do. So what good are those RT...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super

    The 2080 is really the only one capable of doing ray tracing without providing a complete crap experience. And that's pretty limited on what titles it can do it. So, I don't see your point. You think someone with a 2060 or 2070 is turning on ray tracing? 2080Ti struggles in a lot of titles...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super

    Current gen cards, and arguably whatever comes out for the next 3-5 years, just aren't and won't be up to snuff to drive acceptable frame rates for ray tracing. Who TF wants to play a 1080/60 when cheap high refresh rate 2K and 4K displays are becoming the norm? No one. As someone that likes...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super

    Then why do the 16xx series cards exist? Nvidia may be all in, but there is still no solution from AMD and developers are most certainly not all in. Then we have the new benchmark from Crytek where RT cores aren't even needed. And the yet to be seen and tested M$ DXR. At this point those RTX...

    Barely an advantage. 1-3%. When the 2080 Super dropped even they called it another 1080Ti.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super

    Some of these charts of so far off reality I'm not sure WTF they were using to get the results they did. A 2080 and 1080Ti trade blows on raster performance. Those charts put the 1080Ti below a Radeon 7 and 5700XT. That's laughable. Especially the COD:MW one. I get 110+ FPS at 1440P Ultra all...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super

    A 1680Ti would make more sense. 2080Ti performance without the RTX for $750 and I'm a buyer.

    Custom Power Plan for Ryzen 3000 Processors

    I installed it last night. Zero difference on my 3700X. Also running latest 1.0.0.4B BIOS. Zero difference. 4325 max single core, 4100 max all core. YMMV Hopes are no longer being kept up.

    Game is butter smooth for me. Excellent game mechanics, just like COD should have. Thoroughly enjoying multiplayer so far. I might stream the campaign after work. I did suck that it took 2 hours of playing "retry" last night to get in. It is what it is I guess. Hopefully it won't be so bad...
