I'm pretty sure he knew full well how bad for AMD's image blowers have been, but I suppose to took one last fail to convince AMD management to do something. It's pretty bad PR when the biggest tech channel on Youtube reviews a graphics card and has to point out the cooler is so shit it would overheat and execute a hard power-off in high FPS situations like a menu screen.
    Yup, no matter how much the cards are good and perform just fine and are a p great deal, "overheats at 50db" is fucking awful and puts a massive damper on any of it.

    Id like to say im super glad for channels like GN being around and doing a glorious job tho.

    I also really hate it when people call things "quiet" that are anything but. Like those portable air conditioners that are supposed to be "silent", "whisper level" or whatever. NO! YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE BETWEEN REALLY LOUD AND ABSURDLY LOUD!!!!! STOP CALLING IT SOMETHING IT DEFINITELY ISN'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

    Hardware Unboxed takes a look at Navi's image sharpening feature.



    Normally I tend to think that this kind of closeups are mostly self defeating as in if you have to examine the image that close, it's probably "good enough". But that Battlefield 5 example really popped imo.

    Custom cooled cards apparently arrive in a month or so.

    Also, apparently you need to turn off image sharpening (for everything) if you want VR to work.

    VR is of no interest to me. But yeah I will wait until there's some actual diversity available. I'm not exactly suffering with a 1060GTX, so it's not urgent; I'd just like to do it while the 1060 has some 2nd hand value.

    Picked up one of the founders edition 2070 Supers. Pretty happy with it so far, even if it feels screwy to be dropping $500 on a GPU. It's a decent upgrade on the 980Ti (which has now been put in the wife's new computer).
    Totally not Victoria Stecker forgetting his password and not having access to his work email.

    Third-party 5700 pics have leaked for ASUS, Sapphire, MSI, and XFX. While they are very eye-catching, it appears none of them will fit in my current case. So I just bid on a used 980Ti.

    New build will probably use the upcoming 5800 XT.

    Is there any reason to think that they'll be any smaller?

    Just checked and the Sapphire Pulse is the usual not too huge size from what i see, the MSI Evoke doesn't look too big either?

    The old Pulse cards were typically 2 slots, while the Nitro were 2.1-2.2 slots. ROG STRIX cards are 2.7 slots. These new Pulse cards look like they might be 2.1 slots, but it's hard to tell. MSI Evoke will likely fit, but it looks garish.

    The Fractal Design Define Nano S strictly limits you to 2 slot GPUs if you use an ATX PSU. You have more leeway if you use a SFX PSU.

    "garish" for a single color brownish card from the man with the lit up pony pc?

    And yeah tiny 1660 gets my vote. I wouldnt recommend a base 2060 at all to anyone tbh.

    Lost the auction for the 980 Ti I found. Found another one several minutes later, made an offer, auto-accepted. Saved $10 or so. Will be here next week.
