  3. Intels new F chips will be the same price as those with the igpu. Thought they will be a few bucks cheaper.

    AMD RX Vega announcement.

    I was thinking of doing another side upgrade, just to tinker with the new card... I then was thinking I could sell a few games that come free with the vega VII to recoup some $$ but read that you have to have a AMD card installed for those to work.... So, if I sold a game or 2 to someone they would have to have an eligible gpu for it to work? Or, maybe I could have it scan my system and then save the codes for selling? Idk, maybe Im wrong but in the past I would sell the games I didn't want and made it much more cheaper...

    Yea some are calling it Zen 3 launch being 3000 series or 3rd iteration/release... definitely not confusing lol

    Possible it helps with cooling a bit, probably not dramatic. They can use these chips that have failed in the igp and not waste them, should help some with inventory woes.
  7. Good news for those with a Freesync monitor and Nvidia GPU: https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/283261-nvidia-admits-defeat-will-support-g-sync-on-freesync-displays I hope it works well....

    Yea I wonder if 125w 16 core will require x570 or if it down clocks on older chipsets
  9. That is an amazing build, really like it!

    I mean it does sound too good to be true for the price.... I hope the specs are in line with the rumors.

    Might be some more evidence since there is a contest to guess cinebench with the same branding: https://www.techpowerup.com/250412/amd-hired-agency-in-south-korea-teases-amd-ryzen-7-3700x-ryzen-5-3600x

    AMD RX Vega announcement.

    Well I hope all these rumors are true too... The pricing just throws me off on both navi and ryzen... People might be disappointed if we have anything less than the leaks.

    AMD Zen

    Is that not crazy saying 8 core mid range, low range as 6 core.... heck I might go that route too. The clocks, price and tdp are amazing all around. Can 7nm really be that good? With that tdp it should stay relatively cool. Boost clocks Im assuming will be only a few cores as it would be hard to believe that would be boost for all core. Curious as to what the new chipset will bring possibly be named x570.... I hope they have some real phases now too on these MB and not the fake half phases MB vendors been called out on recently. I know his sources have been pretty much spot on, but it is still hard to believe...

    Check out around 13:45 mark... Man I cannot wait, Ill probably target the 7 series but that 9 series is crazy at those speeds/cores... Even the price is hard to believe if true... what will Intel do? The TDP is very interesting too!

    10% average would be great with a bit more clocks.

    AMD Zen

    If would be amazing if gaming was +5 on ipc and with like you said some more clocks. Seems like clocks is the biggest thing from gain more ground in gaming. AMD is pretty good about price for the amount of cores you get. Hoping there is some OC fun to be had as xfr really does good job but would like more headroom.

    Right! Crazy how small the chip was... Some found this in between the layers of the pcb.... We were all discussing it at work.
  18. Looks like some leaks are starting to come out. If those specs hold true, could really perform. https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/3224/geforce-gtx-1180 https://wccftech.com/rumor-nvidia-turing-gaming-gpus-launching-in-july-to-replace-pascal-geforce-lineup-ampere-to-succeed-volta-in-hpc/

    Well Im glad I cancelled my preorder.... Just wanted to get in line if it was going to be a good upgrade going to the 2080... But would make no sense for that small improvement and not getting a good price for my current card. Id probably consider it if I was buying new or doing a major upgrade though. Used priced on the 1080 ti are crazy good right now as people keep dumping their cards. Looking at the games I mainly play, there would be no noticeable benefit it seems. Is DLSS only for RTX lineup or will it be for previous gen? I guess if many devs implement DLSS then there might be a good boost after awhile. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_RTX_2080_Founders_Edition/33.html

    Time for upgrade soon

    I believe that specific set of Flare are to play nice with Ryzen cpu's, which probably have an XMP profile too I would think. The other has RGB tho The 1080 Ti is temping many right now for the low prices... The 2080 non ti might match its performance but those reviews should be out within a week. 1080 Ti might be the way to go to save a bit and get nearly the same performance of the 2080 non Ti if shows up that way as some of the leaks show. Also, Intel might be releasing its new chips here soon too "9700k" (solder tim/ihs). But the 8086k is probably not worth the extra over the 8700k as both should OC the same. AMD 2700x might be something to consider or the 2600x and non x, all of which might go a bit lower if Intel releases something here soon. Usually, the MB are cheaper too on AMD side. Or, you could buy the monitor and card now (or wait just a tiny bit longer for reviews on the RTX2000 series) and see if that does it for you. Im running 1440p and with everything on ultra in BFV demo I was between 80-110 fps usually but my card is OC some but the cpu (2600x, 6 core) is running stock.

    Seem like we should be comparing RTX 2080 to the GTX 1080 ti? and the 1080 ti is dropping in price... I don't know if it is really worth it. Not only that, right now almost all are 800US+. Ebay has tons of 1080 ti for under 550US some as low as 500. Then there is the shrink to 7nm what next year? So, I watch bunch of videos and some say they shifted or changed the naming (the confusion with Titan X, Xp all that) with this line up as the 2080 ti is the Titan and 2080 is the ti... but yet they did this to try to say the 1080 non ti is the comparison card at this price point? Im not sure how good the DLSS is going to be but does seem to give a good boost if the title supports it. To be honest I did pre-order the RTX 2080 but might cancel as I wanted to get in line if it was a good card... Waiting on leaks and some numbers before cancelling as there is a month to wait. I could sell my card being the Strix version it looks like around 575 - 625 currently only and this card was RTX 2080 was 800US, same price I paid for the 1080ti... Im still up from selling my Vega 56 for double what I paid, which I was able to get the 1080ti then... Looking more like a side grade at this point but like to play with new stuff for the fun of it. Probably just cancel and wait till next year but will hold out for awhile for more info.. https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/275961-nvidia-claims-rtx-gpus-are-much-faster-than-pascal-by-deliberately-comparing-the-wrong-cards

    I watched some of the reveal, but didn't catch it all... Was interesting with the ray tracing stuff but what about performance on the current games? Whats with the new measurement tool they using to measure performance, Im assuming its just for ray tracing. Then theres the new twin cooler, probably much quieter.
