    Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

    Can we have a video on AMD's VCE (Video Coding Engine)? There is literally nothing on this anywhere. People should have reviewed VCE on both Vega 56/64 (VCE 4.0) and Radeon VII (VCE 4.1). If you could do some kind of fun video or even a more serious video on how it compares to Pascal/Turing (especially in streaming) then that would be nice.

    Ryzen 3000 „Valhalla“

    You can tell it's getting very close to release now. There's a deal I just saw on scan (Don't remember seeing it before but if anyone has let me know) saying that if people buy ryzen 5 or ryzen 7 2000 series they get a free download of the division 2. They are trying to get rid of every last bit of stock, in preparation. Now people have a dilemma. Division 2 paired with a ryzen 5 or 7 is very attractive if you like the game (It's had very good reception from what I've seen)

    Need a new graphics card for under $400

    https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XRqhP6/gigabyte-radeon-rx-vega-56-8gb-video-card-gv-rxvega56gaming-oc-8gd Don't know if it's out of stock, but that price of 310 is tasty for an 8gb vram card. Give yourself some breathing room and get vega. Don't waste your money on 6gb 2060, only to end up buying a new card 2 years down the line because you didn't have enough vram. Don't fall into nvidia's dirty trap. It's WELL within that 400 budget, and I think you feel like you don't actually want to spend close to that. This is therefore the best option. You lose a bit of performance from the 2060, but you gain 2gb vram. It's cheaper and I'd pay $50+ less for a trade like that.

    Need a great single slot GPU

    I believe the best single slot card is the galax gtx 1070 katana. You'd have to buy it used though, so it may be difficult to get hold of one.

    Nvidia GTC 2019 Keynote Livethread

    I think I heard Jensen just hate on his own pricing. 'From 219$ to the most powerful in the world' Not gonna mention the 1000$+ price tag Jensen? No? I didn't think so either.

    [rumor] navi to be presented Wednesday?

    I don't know if anyone else noticed but...look at the raise the game bundle end dates. It ends on April 6th and codes must be redeemed by May 6th. 6+1=??? 7!!! I may be wrong, but does that not indicate something? We've all been talking about AMD and 7nm, as well as a possible July 7th date. April 7th for zen 2 and May 7th for navi could be possible (Maybe it's just a coincidence but it feels fishy to me). That pretty much falls in line with the rumors coming out of Bizgram about zen 2. Or possibly May 7th for both launches. It could all end up being nothing, but it is very suspicious that the raise the game bundle ends on the 6th of a month.
  7. This card is the most pointless launch, it's even more pointless than the rx 590, and that's saying something... This was supposed to wipe the floor with the rx 580. Instead it barely beats it in games and gets slaughtered in most productivity benchmarks. Turing is getting worse and worse. Thankfully a 1650 may save the day and might actually give Polaris something to think about. The fact that Polaris murders Turing despite being 2 years older is just embarrassing. The whole idea of these launches was surely to dethrone the rx 570. It doesn't even come close. Why on earth did they release these cards...

    What AMD CPU to go for?

    If you are using it for gaming, then no. The 2700x is zen+, it has better ipc and slightly better frequencies. The 1900x is just an 1800x on a bigger platform. It performs worse than the 2700x in gaming and offers no productivity benefit on it's own (although threadripper offers quad channel memory and more lanes, but that has no effect on gaming really). Get the 2700x.

    Is the RX 580 still king of budget gaming?

    It never was the king. It was always the king's bodyguard. Stronger but doesn't hold the crown. That goes to the rx 570, not the 580. The rx 570 is the best value card on the market and will stay that way until Navi comes along and replaces it. The fact that the rx 570 is still battering Turing at the low end just shows how bad Turing has ended up being. It was a mess when it first came out, the high end lacks vram (6gb on the 2060 and only 8gb on the 2080 is criminal) and the low end is disappointing. In some games the 1660 is only just ahead by like 5 fps. In others it pulls away, but is that really good enough? It's hardly a replacement for the 1060. For 1080p, the rx 570 is still the king and remains the thorn in Nvidia's side.

    Do all the 2080 gpus perform the same?

    If money was no issue, I'd get the strix as you mentioned: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/84hKHx/asus-geforce-rtx-2080-8gb-strix-gaming-oc-video-card-rog-strix-rtx2080-o8g-gaming Also consider the radeon vii, that automatically comes with a 3 fan design, but more importantly comes with 16gb vram. That could really help you keep stable framerates 2 or 3 years down the line when games consistently go above the 8gb on the 2080. If you can find the radeon VII (Most tend to be out of stock due to limited production) then give that a shot instead provided you aren't interested in ray tracing. That's what I did. It actually has lower temps than the 2080 on average by about 5-10 degrees.

    Do all the 2080 gpus perform the same?

    Usually the 3 fan cards have lower temperatures. To keep it simple for you, this is the cheapest 2080 with a 3 fan design right now (In the US, let me know if you are a different country, just assuming you are US): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/qMKcCJ/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2080-8gb-gaming-oc-video-card-gv-n2080gaming-oc-8gc

    AMD is killin it with their free game bundles

    Forget those prices, newegg has a killer deal right now on 56 for those in the US. Same arez one that you mentioned too. With the 3 games as well. Probably out of stock by now though https://pcpartpicker.com/product/C6tQzy/asus-radeon-rx-vega-56-8-gb-arez-video-card-arez-strix-rxvega56-o8g-gaming

    RTX 2060 vs Vega 56

    This. Vega 56 performs slightly worse NOW, but in 2 or 3 years, that 8gb and hbcc will pay off big time. Just look at stuff like Black Ops 4, Far Cry 5, Division 2. All very recent games, all of them use vram up like it's nothing. That is a sign of what is coming down the line. 6gb for such a good card like the 2060, it's awful and unforgivable for me. Nvidia did it specifically so you'd have to upgrade next gen. Don't fall for it and go for Vega. Vega is like the 290x, it will age so so much better than Turing.

    Fx 8350 bottlenecks the rx 2060

    I have an fx 9590. Once again, the fx haters have entered the room and spoiled the party. Yes, it bottlenecks the 2060. But is it playable? You darn well bet it is. Give it a good overclock, and then maybe up the resolution scale to like 150%. You won't get higher fps in any situation, but you may as well take the strain off the cpu and more onto the gpu. If you can't get higher fps, may as well make the 2060 flex it's muscles by upping the resolution scale. FX is starting to get on it's last legs, but I think it's got another year or two in it yet before it becomes unplayable.

    So I'm getting a 2060...

    https://pcpartpicker.com/product/C6tQzy/asus-radeon-rx-vega-56-8-gb-arez-video-card-arez-strix-rxvega56-o8g-gaming One there for 375, although you gonna have to be quick if you're interested. If not then yes go after the 2060 or the cheaper 1660ti. 1660ti suits 6gb vram unlike the 2060 which has been neglected and deserves 8gb.
