Or maybe they've got a lot of spare inventory to shift with the serious slow down in VR sales this year!
Think they're going to be in it for the long haul though, they can't have expected VR to have been a huge industry immediately. Triple-A game development alone can take five years, so just to get the best content was always going to take a while.
True. Only time will tell.
How is the Rift figuring compared with the other VR outfits?
With the speed VR has improved in terms of hardware it be interesting to see how AAA titles are designed with rapidly moving goal posts.
57C at idle is still 57C unless AMD have created a new temperature scale.
The rated temps came from the previous version of the Ryzen Master app which reported a 20degree offset on the 95W 'X' chips.
So that 57C idle is actually 37C according to AMD. The reporting is changing soon (now?) to take that into account.
? The 1600x is rated at 95 watts. (This is the heat you need to dissipate,or power,to be more precise.)
The 1800X is also stated as a 95 watt part. So its a guidence bracket, not an exact power figure.(my cooler for e.g. is labelled 95 watts)
At full load in this test the 1600x is at 64C, which is well acceptable for life span.
It is not clear if that is over clocked full load or stock clocks full load, but trust me when I say it will not be difficult keeping these processors in the required temps.
None of them function above ~ 4.1 gig what ever the temps anyway,so best leave off the last 0.1 gig and have sensible voltages and power usage.
I am all about the K70 love. Best keyboards I've ever owned :)

The game is good but it needs more balancing i think
