  1. I'm no less confused than I was when it was first teased.
  2. Go ahead, go out in a blaze of glory. They'll surely remember you when they rewrite books for the new Patriotic Education program.
  3. Bullshit. Sentient life was an interesting experiment but it's clearly failed.
  4. RIP abortion RIP voting rights RIP medicaid/medicare RIP affordable healthcare What else did I miss?
  5. It’s Official- NVIDIA Acquires Arm For $40 Billion To Create What Could Be A Computing Juggernaut WWW.FORBES.COM #1-ranked tech industry analyst talked with both NVIDIA's Jensen Huang and Arm's Simon Segars about their $40B deal. Here's Forbes' take on it. The part about licensing remaining completely open and globally neutral is....yeah. Probably the part people are going to have a hard time believing, at least given NVIDIA's......less than open attitude towards all other aspects of their technology.
  6. You made some pretty blatantly false statements and you're playing a tiring game of semantics to get out of it.
  7. If you're comparing it to the non-Super, then performance isn't "practically the same." The 5700XT definitively beats it in 17 out of the 24 tests here with newer drivers. https://www.techspot.com/review/2015-geforce-rtx-2070-super-vs-radeon-5700-xt/ You can't say it performs the same and costs the same in the same sentence. It either performs the same or slightly worse for $100+ cheaper, or it costs the same but performs better nearly all the time. Ray-tracing hasn't justified its existence yet in lieu of performance, DLSS 1.0 was most certainly a
  8. kay I mean this is just straight up closed-minded fanboyism right here. You're attempting to downplay the performance per dollar advantage of the 5700XT while playing up the limited supported features of the 2070S. How about this: The 5700XT is an alternative to you if you're savvy with your money and don't like wasting it on half-baked features.
  9. Comparing RTX to GameWorks isn't very flattering for RTX. Most people I know left those features off because of the performance bullcrap it caused. To be clear, the 5700XT performed better than its competition at launch. Then NVIDIA launched the 2070 Super to even things out, and they honestly trade blows pretty equally, but the 5700XT is a full $100 cheaper.
  10. This is deliberate, but not for the reasons you suggest. AMD was all bluster and big noise about Vega 64 and Radeon 7, mostly the fault of Raja Koduri who wouldn't shut up about them. And obviously they completely fell short of expectations. So now they're trying to keep things in check. People I've talked to that perhaps know about things behind the curtain tell me that Navi will do well at rasterization.
  11. Why would you buy a 5700XT when it came out? Maybe because it offers competitive raster performance at its price point? Ray-tracing is nice but it kills performance on RTX 20 series cards, and both it and DLSS have minuscule game support. Beyond that it's really just speculation on what the future holds.
  12. Geez they all wear grey. I'm not gonna be able to tell anyone apart in the action scenes, am I?
  13. Agreed. DLSS 2.0 is a game changer. When a GPU can render as little as 1/4 the pixels and the rest can be accurately "guessed", at a huge performance uplift, that will have consequences for the entire product stack at all budget levels.
  14. I don't know where else to put this. Donald Trump nominated for 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for Israel-UAE peace deal https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/breaking-donald-trump-nominated-2021-22653117 Trump getting a Nobel Peace prize for any reason....
