    My understanding is that CPU encoding simply outrivals NVENC, Quicksync, and VCE when it comes to streaming. This is due to the fact that twitch limits all streamers (aside from special cases) bitrate to 3,500, which GPU encoders handle very poorly. Youtube streaming does allow for a 10,000+ bitrate, but you'd need an upload plan to match,

    Alibaba chooses AMD

    They must like the 16 core Zen parts AMD showed them

    Corsair releases new RGB Fans, Chassis and more!

    I agree with the Air 740 looking bad. The angles/arc angles just aren't appealing to me. Now the 460x is something I could get down with.
  4. I would actually recommend an R9 Fury Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury Tri-X OC+ - $274.33 (315.91 + Debit Card + Opt. Free Rtrn + Shop15) It's faster than a 1060, but will use slightly more wattage. It's main draw (hehe, pun not intended) is it's 1440p performance and FreeSync capabilities.

    AMD pulls Vega forward to October

    nvidea is just going to drop the 1080Ti
  6. It's because AMD is delaying their enthusiast/high-end solution to late 2016/early 2017 The 980 launched in competition with the 290X

    AMD Polaris Tech Day is Today

    They could be showing off Polaris, Vega, Zen, and Bristol Ridge. My assumption is that Vega and Zen would be the main NDA'd information while they are briefing the press on what to hype for Polaris and Bristol Ridge at Computex.
  8. Here are a couple facts... They used 3 minutes out of the 5 minutes of Boldguy's video. They also included 11 minutes of their own content.

    Best Cherry Mx Switch for gaming

    I vote either the new Cherry MX Speeds (Corsair limited exclusive) or Cherry MX Browns with o-rings.
  10. It will probably settle at $399 for most cards. You probably can get low quality heatsink and fan 1070 for $379 though.
  11. I think the new CPUs will perform like a 3770k or 4790k in games, but like an i7-4930K to 5960X in heavy, fully threaded workloads. It's really going to be a mixed bag during the reviews. It really needs to be priced well ($300-$500, no $600-$1,000 bull...) for it to be recommended. It's just that Intel will still have %5-%15 better gaming performance with an i5-7650k or an i7-7750k (Kaby Lake) and better fully threaded "professional" performance with an i7-6800K, i7-6900K, or even an i7-7850k (Skylake-E). There is also the AM4 platform that remains to be seen, in terms of fleshed out features. That will compete with the 200-series motherboards and next generation X119 motherboards.
  12. But that isn't the expected performance level... It's supposed to perform like a 390x/980/Fury. It's also expected to be priced between $200-$300, about $100 less than the 1070. It could very well perform at 75% of the 1070 (probably closer to 85-90%, but the price dictates as such).

    AMD Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 Specifications leak

    Yeah. I'm talking about the heatsink and fan as it relates to the 1070.

    AMD Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 Specifications leak

    $380 for this: And probably $400-450 for something more robust like this (Note: That's a 970...)

    1080 watercooled.. Do I need it?

    I'd probably wait for non-Founder's Edition custom PCB 1080s with dual 8-pin power
  16. TheMissxu

    AMD Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 Specifications leak

    It's going to release at $449. You are only going to get cheap heat sink and fans at $379 (cheap plastic blower style) probably a couple weeks later. Those will only be looked at for non-overclocking or for "reference" watercooling. Just nVidia's clever marketing going at it...

    [Rumor] AMD polaris might be presented after computex

    It was a marketing team that put together the presentation... That said, I'm still skeptical on this rumor, considering it's just a couple posts from overclock.net
  18. They say +100% performance (or 2x), but it's accepted that it's really going to be +25% (or 1.25x) The increase in performance per watt is said to be +200% (or 3x) when it's skeptically calculated to be about +70% (or 1.7x).

    Should I upgrade to a 1080?

    Honestly, I'd wait for the 1080Ti and AMD Vega 10 to drop.
  20. TheMissxu

    Upgrade 6350 to 8350?

    I wouldn't, especially with a 970 motherboard. I'd first upgrade your GPU to a 280X or 390 before considering upgrading your CPU/Motherboard. For the most part, you are going to be looking at a 4-core (4-thread or maybe 8-thread) CPU from AMD or Intel in about 6 months. At that point, you can also upgrade your motherboard.

    Which camera (especially for video)?

    You could check out this video, Also check the description... For the most part, these are just out of your budget, but some are pretty close.

    A Great Video Explaining Zen

    Their 4-core, 4-thread Athalon chip would perform around an i5-3570k level. Still not very competitive with an i5-6600k or a Kaby Lake i5 in terms of performance. However, if they can price it between $80 and $150, it would be an interesting option. It's the 4-core, 8-thread Zen I'm wondering about... It will perform like an i7-3770k. If they can price it between $200 and $250 that'd be hype. The 6-core, 12-thread or 8-core, 16-thread chips better be under $500 each. If they are not, it will be a disappointing release as similarly priced Intel parts will edge out the performance crown while having an acceptable price/performance. All in all, if they can do $150 4-thread, $250 8-thread, $350 12-thread, and $499 16-thread, it will be quite the time to be alive.

    Freesync for 1440p/390X

    The fact of the matter is that the 8320 came out in 2012. If you want cheap, you can get a non-K Intel CPU and an H branded motherboard and still get +25% frame rates. As for your question, you don't *need* freesync, although it's very nice to have. At your budget, I'd advise against it, unless you get a 1080p monitor (specifically the Nixeus Vue 24 inch 1080p Freesync [30Hz to 144Hz] monitor ~$250).
