  1. Just get an APU for that. Well not NVENC, but VCE does basically the same.
  2. Do smartphones need more than 4 cores?

    If there's only moderate activity, the 4 high-power cores will be shut off to save power, while the 4 low-power cores take care of things. If there's fairly heavy activity, the 4 high-power cores will be taking care of it; the low-power cores may be shut off or may contribute a little. 4+4 is the most common example of this concept, but there are also 2+2, 2+4 and 2+6. But a lot of 4-core chips will just be plain 4 cores rather than 2+2.
  3. Do smartphones need more than 4 cores?

    Many of the 8-cores are 4+4 cores and only use 4 cores at a time; the setup is for power-saving reasons. In addition, mobile devs have actually made applications surprisingly multithreaded. There's more of an incentive to do so on mobile than PC, because each CPU core is weaker. Of course, 10 cores is still pretty silly. That's more of an effort to pad the spec sheet.
  4. They seem to be doing it one step better than EVGA - you only get charged if you don't return the CPU. That way an honest customer is never out any money. I mean EVGA's system is great in its own right, but AMD seems to be going above and beyond here.
  5. Is it worth it?

    That's a great price for that card. Go for it.
  6. Bandwidth increases by 87.5%. Real-world performance may only be marginally affected though, it very much depends on the rest of the system as well as what software you're running.
  7. Google Assistant coming to West-Europe

    Hahaha, Google still can't speak Danish. Our kamelåså is too strong for them.
  8. GTX 680 2gb a good buy for $80 in 2018?

    The GTX 680 and GTX 770 are exactly the same thing, just higher stock clocks on the 770 (irrelevant once overclocked). As for the GTX 1050, that's marginally slower than the GTX 960, which in turn is overall slightly slower than the GTX 680 and 770. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1050_Gaming_X/27.html https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_960_Gaming/29.html
  9. HD 7850 vs R9 270x vs R7 370

    The R7 370 is an overclocked 7850. The R7 270X is an overclocked 7870. The 270X will perform best, roughly on par with a GTX 950.
  10. 970 instead of a 1060 3GB

    Downsides would be higher power consumption and maybe lacking support for one or two newer ancillary features. Otherwise it's a pretty good deal at this point.
  11. Why are the Vive grip buttons so poorly placed

    Many game developers map gripping to the trigger instead, so you're not alone in considering them pretty bad. I don't know why they're so bad, but maybe they rushed the development. They did launch 8 months before Oculus' controllers (whose grip buttons are excellent).
  12. Virtual Reality Requirements

    It depends which VR headset you get. The Oculus Rift has the lowest requirements, the HTC Vive a little higher, then the Windows headsets and Vive Pro, and finally the Pimax 8K and 8K X with extreme requirements.
  13. Is AMD APU now being sold?

    Yeah, the 2400G should be compared to like a Core i3-8100 and a GT 1030. Where the 2400G is cheaper, has better multithreaded CPU performance, just about catches up in singlethreaded CPU performance when overclocked, and at least matches if not slightly outperforms the GPU.
  14. Markups already striking Raven Ridge?

    New hardware almost always launches above MSRP, then quickly gets pushed down by competition. We'll see if the latter happens over the coming days, but there's definitely nothing inherently scary or unusual in the launch prices being high.
  15. Compilation of Ryzen APU reviews

    I said it obsoleted it. People still sometimes buy obsolete shit, but now AMD is unequivocally the best option in that segment. Just look at stats from before crypto mining hiked prices. This market has always existed.
