I think many (not all) gamer type people have a fear of the unknown when it comes to Macs. Because they've spent in some cases decades getting to...
XBSX is going to make a complete mockery of PC's value-for-money
Those lot are obsessed with boat/spaceship hybrids.
Nice quick benchmark to run. OcUK Birthday bargain RX590 scores ~4900 on either Vulkan or DX12.
Got mine too. It's funny after handling gigantic Sapphire Nitro+ Vega cards, a normal 2-fan 2-slot card now seems like a wee thing.
Microsoft could totally demolish this tension if any game bought from them digitally could be played on either Xbox and PC at no extra cost.
Looks to be sold out now. Early bird gets the Polaris
Cheers Gibbo, just nabbed one.
Me too in Scotland. This thread is officially targeted at "moaners" so of course we'll have a whinge :p
Yeah, the PS1 had dodgy 3D because it did not do perspective-correct texture mapping. Textures were always "twitching" as the view moved, and...
If only the Series X could be "jailbroken" and turned into a normal PC!
My Vega64 from 2017 has 12.7 TFLOPs. Shame it can't channel them into gaming properly :p

I miss when entering a competition didn't involve grovelling by doing a retweet or whatever :(
Well RX590 was RX580-meets-12nm and they didn't contort the name into Radeon XII
Makes me think of TVs on display in high street shops. Colour vibrancy artificially cranked up to maximum = fools the brain into thinking it's better.
It's a bit annoying that the "VII" in Radeon VII is pronounced "seven", when in reality it means "Vega 2" :p
I think they just put wishful thinking entries in their database, to get some views on their banner ads.
This place is more like an economics forum than a technology forum.
Dear boy, if you want to read half-baked armchair economist theories over and...
Leaks point to the Navi GPU in upcoming Xbox Series X being significantly beefier than the 5700XT (40CU):
Smart money is buy a discounted 590 now, then in a few years buy a discounted RDNA 2.0 card.
Surf the wave behind the whales that overpay :p
Polaris surely has to be considered a legendary architecture given the length of time it's hung around and remained relevant
