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.
