As a CPU and GPU manufacturer AMD have a commercial interest in all of PC gaming's successes. HTC also have a commercial interest in Fallout 4 VR being a success too.

Sadly, once again the vagaries of Ryzen memory support came into play with the 1500X. The same board, same BIOS, same DIMMs, and yet with the 1500X it couldn't manage to hit 3,000MHz. You're right though, I should have made the point in the article, but it slipped my mind as I was putting it together.

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.
Thanks. Wasn't that clear in the piece. Seemed odd how idle temps close to 100% use temps.
Yes, the review kit from AMD came pre-loaded with an unreleased BIOS. Which is why we couldn't review on the same X370 board we tested the R7 chips on.
AMD bets big buying into wireless VR: “you can count on those cables being gone.”
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X review: the most significant gaming CPU AMD have ever made
AMD's Ryzen 5 CPUs are here. Intel's i5 chips need to watch out...
I am guessing later this year.
We might just see some signs of Volta at Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference this year, but only in vague pro-level trim. The Oak Ridge super-computers with Volta in have been pushed back to 2018 last I heard.
This is a completely different kind of hardware update than any console generation has had in the past. The performance uptick from the Scorpio is way ahead of a simple re-engineered Xbox Slim.
I also don't believe that either MS or Sony will start from scratch and completely redesign their console architecture again. Financially now it is too great a risk for either one of them to move too far away from the current PC-based design.
the entire appeal of consoles is the fact you buy a console you put a disc in and it works, they start blurring those lines they will lose a larger portion of their user base than anything else.
the PS4 is still a multi million unit selling console and still Sony's biggest money maker, it would be suicide for Sony not to force people to buy a new console and in turn sell on the devkits and dev rights to the new system.
Microsoft at the moments is reaping the ill will that came on the back of them trying to go more towards PC with near 100% digital sales and requiring to be online for the software security and locking games to the system, I say they are still suffering as their sales after that aren't even close to the PS4.
yes the systems are doing more yes this generation saw a bigger jump as both firms held back to reduce system costs at launch and at the time 4K was miniscule it's still a relatively niche market. so yeas there is a slightly different upgrade to the last generations, but not if you remember the fact the original version of the 360 didn't even support HDMI.
as I said it is par for the course of the hardware half life refresh.
They do have a Ryzen 5, the 1600X, with the same clocks as the 1800X though, but I don't think they could guarantee any higher clocks on a release chip at this point.
True, but I was specifically referring to 4 core chips. I was hoping that with the lower core count, they might be able to crank up the clocks and produce a chip that, at least for general gaming, would be exceptionally competitive with the i7-7700k, while being around half the price. That would be lovely.
To be fair it's pretty good for people who do know what they're doing. As someone who's constantly ripping out and replacing components, and entire platforms, I'm always hugely impressed how robust Windows 10 is when it comes to just getting on with booting up again and sorting out new drivers without bothering you.
There really is a lot to like about it, however nanny-ish it can sometimes get :)
of course, anything good for the nOOb pc users is always even better for the hardcore user
That's actually the page for the original GTX 1080, though I hear you, it would be surprising were the Ti version not to use the same.
