AMD’s Navi being ‘no high-end GPU’ isn’t necessarily a bad thing for us gamersAMD’s Navi being ‘no high-end GPU’ isn’t necessarily a bad thing for us gamers

"fanning the hype flames for GPUs that struggle to compete with the top-end of the competition" - For sure, Fury and Fury X weren't marketed so well, but Vega was always pitched as a GTX 1080 competitor, which it does well, and then for some reason people were disappointed it didn't take the throne from the 1080ti. Even with straightforward marketing people made their own hype.

As you said, Navi is supposed to utilise infinity fabric though, so it seems like it would be a bit odd if they didn't make a high end GPU simply by cramming chips together.Reply

Well take this with a grain of salt, but some have said that the yields for Navi won't be great so they will have to make a cutdown card out of necessity until they can improve them.

Will just have to wait and see i suppose.

Does double pump even take skill?

I mean you still have to aim, and the cone of effect isn't gigantic. I've gotten headshots at close range with the pump that did 36 damage.

Well that's just silly. Especially why 2 SSDs and HDDs? I mean, I'm not one to talk, I'm at about 8 TB of storage (1.25 TB of SSD storage), but as a whole, starter computer that's a fresh build it seems silly.

Seems like a terrible idea. Part of the excitement of Battle Royale games is that everyone in a match starts off at the same level, though obviously luck plays into it. Sure you can be shot in the back while withdrawing, but if you have the capacity to buy a great weapon because you did well before, it theoretically influences the current match. Meh.

No, CD Projekt weren't teasing The Witcher 4 - Geralt is coming to Soul Calibur VINo, CD Projekt weren't teasing The Witcher 4 - Geralt is coming to Soul Calibur VI

I mean, it shouldn't be too disappointing, didn't CDPR pretty much come out and say they weren't going to be doing a new Witcher game for a while, that they were now focusing their resources on Cyberpunk 2077?

It's interesting they're specifically saying "SteamVR", not "HTC Vive".

It's certainly rather tempting... Goodness though, another year, another Skyrim release.

Not entirely true, could use it as a PhysX card. Also whatever happened to that company that was working on making it so that any two graphics cards could be used together in a Crossfire fashion? I think my motherboard advertised supporting it.Reply
Dave James Avatar

Thanks ;)


A P102 as a PhysX card might be overkill, and now my brain's hurting trying to remember what that company was called. It was mostly rubbish, and was generally just used in motherboards to offer extra PCIe lanes.


DX12's multi GPU mode might work though.

I really liked the TV show but could never get the game to work. Also, Planetside 2 doesn't have any cooperative battles, it's all PvP. Large co-op battles was definitely supposed to be something Defiance 1 had. I might try the new one.Reply
Lolssi Avatar

The game had those. They had some mechanics but in the end it often comes down to everybody shoot down the bosses health bar and you can do that only so much before you get bored out of your mind.

Just wanted to point out that there are a few different types of colourblindness, it's not just about red. Can't remember what game it was, but some game I played recently had like 5 different modes to help alleviate the issue.Reply

You're probably thinking about Overwatch

Intel promise to "compete in graphics products" but their recent prototype isn't the beginningIntel promise to "compete in graphics products" but their recent prototype isn't the beginning
Anakhoresis Avatar
I feel like one of the major hurdles that Intel is going to be competing against is not having to license all the technology/patents from AMD or Nvidia (And I imagine right now, they don't even want to touch licensing from Nvidia). I kind of wonder if the partnership with AMD with Vega is sort of a peace offering to try and evade a situation like Bethesda/Oculus from happening down the road.Reply
Dave James Avatar

I'm guessing they'll carry on licensing the necessary technology from AMD. I might be remembering wrong, but when the tech licensing deal with Nvidia ran out last year I thought they moved over to AMD. I doubt they'll need any extra licensing over and above what they already have in place for their current GPUs.
