AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 review: a high-end GPU waiting on a future it’s trying to create
As AMD withdraws RX Vega launch rebates “do not be shocked if the price jumps nearly £100”
We retested with the absolute latest BIOS updates and both were the Samsung 960 drives in both EVO and Pro trim. It seems like it was having an issue with the drives having an existing Windows installation on the, but they still didn't show up properly when I booted from a separate boot drive (a SATA SSD with an existing OS booted fine).

If you're the sort of person that's hodgepodging a couple of ancient PCs together, then yeah, this guide probably isn't worthwhile for you ;)
But if there are peoples out there who haven't gotten into their PC with a screwdriver, worried about this sort of thing being too complex for them to manage, we were hoping it might dispel any fears and provide a handy resource.
And we kinda figured plugging the monitor back in would be pretty self-explanatory...

you maybe right on the date, though AMD launches are a bit weird and there is a shop within an hour from me where I can buy the 1900x now so I dunno. definitely refreshing to see a 64 PCI-E lane 8 core for pretty cheap, considering that the only comparable Intel has 44 PCI-E lanes and costs double.
this year and next are shaping up to be a great time to upgrade :)
All launches are a bit weird this year! Normally there's maybe three CPUs in an entire twelve months worth reviewing properly - this year there's frickin' loads!
My mistake, I genuinely thought the octa-core Threadripper was releasing on August 31, didn't realise they'd decided to launch that yesterday too.
Good spot, that's a damned shame :(
Back to the world of constantly reconnecting my device. This is 2017, right?

So annoying, isn't it!?
Hey Dave. Dropping by with a small bit of info. Looks like the adapter may have been delayed. The Microsoft page now shows a release date of January 31st, 2018.

Yeah, HBCC could very well end up being one of those classic AMD 'fine wine' features that gets better with age. Having a large, high-speed memory system able to be used wherever it's needed ought to be a huge boon for an MCM system.
Also, graphics workloads are already incredibly parallel, and GPU silicon super modular, so multiple discrete chips in the same package, connected via the Infinity Fabric, should be capable of being accessed as one large mass of techie graphical goodness.
Well, so long as the schedulers do their jobs, I guess.
The early rumours pegged the 8600K at just 3.4GHz Boost. It wasn't a case of lying, it was an opinion based on what was expected at the time of writing.
At 4.1GHz all-core though it's six threads may still be slower than an i3 with all eight threads running at 4GHz in multi-threaded tasks.
AMD aren't really that bothered who buys their cards, it all ends up on their bottom line. The same goes for the partner boards manufactures, for the most part, except it does nothing for their brand recognition in the wider market.
Well announcing their sales numbers, reducing their production cost, and those GPUs ending up on ebay & Co, should increase both their brand recognition and market share, if only with a delayed effect.
I haven't heard so much (positive comments) about AMD for over 5 years...
Thank you for explaining :)
If you're concerned about the ambidextrous nature the G703 uses the same sensor, but it just doesn't have the extra buttons or the gorgeous freewheeling scroll wheel of the G903.
And the wireless charging really is frickin' awesome :)
Wireless charging is what's making me think about the upgrade now. My G502's been used for so long now that the rubber below the left-side buttons (where the thumb rests) has started to melt/mold into the gap between the rubber and the button. Nothing obtrusive but it leaves a minor residue on the button edge.
Mouse still works like a charm (wouldn't want to change away from logitech anymore thanks to the sensor, and as you say: "the gorgeous freewheeling scroll wheel"). Just a question of when I move on, and this will probably sell it for me :D
