    KaitouX got a reaction from soldier_ph in [Updated] Ryzen 4800H Supply Constraints at XMG Schenker, possibly extending industry wide   
    It's kinda weird that they would add this in the post considering it is unrelated to the topic and it's mostly things that have no proof of being true/important, it looks extremely unprofessional to have a rant in a notice about supply issues in my opinion. The first point while true at the high-end on Desktop, there seems to be no difference when it comes to notebooks, the lower performance of the GPUs compared to desktop and the lower performance of Intel CPUs seems to remove any visible difference in performance. The second point while it's a fact, there's no proof that it would have any significant impact in most cases, at least in desktops only some extreme cases can cause visible impact in performance. The third I'm not sure about it so no comments there.
    The things after that(left out of the quote) are even more unrelated, being about some issues in Death Stranding when using the Ryzen 3900X which in the linked video is said to be likely something related to the latency or a bug, which likely wouldn't affect Renoir or even some Desktop CPUs. Even if the point is about possible issues with Ryzen CPUs, there's no guarantee that Intel wouldn't have issues in some games because of some random reason and the point about "platform stability" seems to have zero reflection in reality, as there seems to be no issues that are particular to Renoir CPUs in notebooks.
     
    On-topic: I wouldn't be surprised if the ODM underestimated the demand which could have caused the issue to become bigger, but AMD having supply issues is something that will probably be a thing for quite some time.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in Which 1660 super brand?   
    I would avoid the 1660Ti, as the 1660Ti performance is too close to the 1660 Super for it to be worth in my opinion. I would either go for a decent cheap cooler on the 1660 Super to save some money compared to the Strix/Gaming X or get some basic 5600XT/2060.
     
    Also prices are dropping like crazy where I'm located, likely due to the imminent release of the new GPUs, both 1660S and 2060 dropped close to 15% in price in the last week. Might be worth checking for deals that might happen in the next few days/weeks.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in what was the greatest nvidia gen improvements ever?   
    The performance alone doesn't matter for most people, the price does. Even if the 3080 was 50% faster than the 2080Ti, if it costed $3000 most people would ignore it.
    I really hope that if that 3080 20% faster than the 2080Ti is real, it would become also get a price cut and not a price increase, otherwise it will be probably one of the worst big node jumps in recent history for Nvidia.
    Basically, if they repeat Maxwell(x80 ~15% faster than x80Ti but with a price drop) it will be good enough, if they repeat Turing then it will be really bad. Personally I would hope for such 3080 to not cost more than $600, anything more than that would be bad in my opinion.

    KaitouX got a reaction from 5x5 in Intel's 7nm is broken, company announces delay until 2022, 2023   
    Considering how much time AMD needs to get their market and mind share high enough to be able to do that, I don't think AMD will be slowing down the performance or increasing the prices too much. But i do hope Intel gets back to it in the next 3 years or so, it certainly would have some effect on pricing if Intel went completely "quiet" like AMD did with Bulldozer.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in why are there so many ?   
    The 580 is usually the same price as the 1650S while performing basically the same but using twice as much power, the 5500XT 8GB is usually quite a bit more expensive than the 1650S which kinda makes it not that good, particularly when often you can find a 1660 for not much more. The extra memory is nice but not worth the trade-offs in my opinion.
     
    Looking at the site OP posted, the 5500XT 8GB is about the same price as the 1660, so not really worth it, on that site the best options are probably this 1660 for slightly more than 200€: https://www.bestprice.gr/item/2155597418/gainward-geforce-gtx-1660-6gb-ghost.html?qid=3ot4wFmerFb_fc3d0&seq=6&q=gtx+1660&from=cat
    or the 1650 Super for 165€:

    Also the 1660 Super for 220€ is a nice improvement over the 1660, but that might be going too much over the budget.

    KaitouX got a reaction from SavageNeo in why are there so many ?   
    The 1650 is one of the worst modern GPUs available, it should be avoided unless you have some special use case where it makes sense.
    Don't know about your local prices, but in the regions I have seen in general the best options around that price are usually the RX570 close to $120(or local currency equivalent) and the 1650 Super for around $160. Also if the 1650 Super is a option for the same price the 5500XT 4GB makes no sense, unless it is the 8GB model for the same price as the 1650S.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Help: rx 5700 xt model !!!!   
    If you don't care about higher noise, the Asrock Challenger, it is a bad cooler but if noise isn't an issue than you're just saving €50+ as the performance itself is going to be the same. If you care about noise then probably the Sapphire Pulse or Gigabyte Gaming OC when considering the prices on that site.

    KaitouX got a reaction from infigo in Why does a 3.8GHz quad core intel processor perform better than a 4.0GHz quad core AMD processor?   
    By the way, you can see the same thing if you compare the 10700K and 3700X at 4Ghz, the 3700X is going to be faster even if you lock both to the same clocks.

    KaitouX got a reaction from AndresFK in Intel Core i7 10th Gen and mobo   
    AMD got higher core counts than Intel(Ryzen 9 3900X and 3950X), and are for the most part as cool as non-K Intel CPUs or cooler than the Intel K SKUs counterparts, also AMD desktop CPUs come with a better cooler than the stock cooler from Intel.
     
    Edit: But if you're buying a ~$300, in my opinion you should at least get a decent air cooler for ~$35 that will allow much quieter operation or lower temperatures, unless you have some space constraint that doesn't allow tower coolers.

    KaitouX got a reaction from aurelienthm in 3900x or Intel équivalent for 3d work.   
    I believe Blender viewport(Eevee, Cycles is probably different) favors clock over cores, likely due to it's similar nature to game engines, the difference is probably really small but I'm pretty sure that the 10900K is faster than the 3900X. I would still go for the 3900X, but if you really don't care about render times, the 10700K/10600K might also work as well as the 10900K.

    KaitouX reacted to D13H4RD in 2070s vs 2060s   
    FWIW, both the 2080 and 2080 Ti came out at the same time, so those who bought a 2080 ought to have known that they weren't getting the best of the best. 
     
    Especially since a 2070S that launched quite a bit later can pretty much match it.

    KaitouX got a reaction from marmour in Gtx 1050 or gtx 1650   
    The cheapest you should get would be the RX570(~$130), other good options are the 1650 Super(~$160) 1660/1660 Super(~$200/$230) and maybe the 5600XT but it is a bit over $250 usually at $270 with some sales putting it closer to $250. With the exception of the RX570, all GPUs mentioned should be at least ~100% faster than the 1050 on average with the 5600XT being about ~200% faster.

    I would hope so, unless the 3060 costs significantly less than the 2060 it kinda needs to get at least a 30% performance increase at this point to compete with the successor of the 5700(XT), which would put it pretty much on par with the 2070 Super/2080.
     
    350W and 320W for the first ones according to igor'sLAB.
     
     
    The memory on the 3080 is pretty disappointing, only 10GB on a GPU that will probably cost the same as the 1080Ti costed with 11GB over 3 years ago looks pretty bad just like the 2080 did(assuming the 11GB one would be more expensive than the 2080 while the 10GB one would be around the same price). I hope they at least put 8GB at every GPU above $200, same for AMD.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mazdaspeeding in Need Cheap X570 Board   
    Those boards are pretty bad, the B450 and likely the B550 boards would probably be better options.
    There seems to be no good options available, so I would wait for either the TUF to come back in stock or for the B550 boards to be released.

    KaitouX got a reaction from IdealPC in 1080P under $300   
    Maybe you're confusing something because the cheapest dual fan 1660 Super is $230 on PCPP and the cheapest 1660 Ti is $280. Also the performance difference seems to be around 5% at best. If anything the 1660 Ti is the overpriced one.
     
    On topic: I personally would recommend the 5600XT Sapphire Pulse or the Gigabyte Gaming OC(the model names are links to the respective PCPP pages) if the intention is to stay between $250 and $300.
