    3080 Nvidia cards

    And they will most likely not be called 3080 if AMD keeps being funny with their products.
  2. @M.Yurizaki ok I see it now. This quote of mine: sounds too general but I had meant only in gaming scenarios (as per the title of this thread). I should've phrased that more clearly, my bad, but I agree that for general use that was meant for those CPU's (ie. NOT gaming) mesh is superior (as evidenced by 7900X smoking the 6950X in nongaming applications).
  3. Did I give any indication that I wanted to do that? I have claimed very specific scenario (gaming) from the very beginning.

    Witcher 3 Best graphics settings.

    If you have the game and the hardware can't you just run it both ways and just choose which way you like it more? Anyway, a 1060 should give you about 40-50 fps in Witcher 3 1440p on max settings without Hairworks. Change that to "high" and you should be reaching 60fps. The game is eye candy - I'd personally take 60fps with better resolution than 120fps with lower one. Bear in mind that a 1060 will not give you 120fps in Witcher 3 1080p on max settings.
  5. Well yeah. But I have never seen a mesh vs. ringbus comparison with the same core count and core speed where mesh would be better in gaming (ie. "some cases"). Because there aren't any normal CPU's with that core count and ringbus, so you can't really compare. If you want an 18-core with ringbus then you probably have to get a Xeon and then you'd have to what, downclock the 7980XE to 2.5-3GHz in order to make the comparison fair? Not really practical
  6. Generally it's game and resolution dependent but at the same core speed ringbus is superior vs. mesh. Intel themselves had confirmed it: And here is the direct quote: Source: https://www.overclock3d.net/news/cpu_mainboard/intel_s_skylake-x_architecture_offers_less_gaming_performance_than_kaby_lake/1 I've also seen few benchmarks i7 6950x vs. i9 7900X in games and generally speaking Broadwell-E was either flat out better or at least the same in performance while achieving lower overclock (we are talking 4.4GHz vs. 4.7GHz). Granted, there aren't higher core count CPU's with ringbus on HEDT so I have no idea how much that would affect if Intel made an 18-core ringbus CPU and compared it to the i9 7980XE. All I can say this - if someone is going to use HEDT in gaming, the mesh absolutely has to be overclocked.
  7. I'd vote Asus Rampage VI Apex if you had it here
  8. Exactly. Cores aren't everything. Threadripper may have more PCIE lanes and more cores but it gets absolutely destroyed in SLI setups vs. Broadwell-E and properly OC'ed Skylake X.
  9. Didn't AdoredTV have like, two sets of predictions for RTX so that whatever happened he couldn't be wrong? I think I'm actually going to save all his Ryzen predictions and open up the folder in a year to check what was initially hyped and leaked vs. what we will be actually getting. Of course by that time he may post three other videos with "corrected" predictions so who knows
  10. I have been playing the shit out of this game on one of those ps1 internet emulators and it was as good as I remember. Though once you get the hang of the advanced driving techniques and shortcuts it gets really easy. Anyway I'm quite excited:)
  11. You mean like allow for Tech News thread with the sole purpose of counting every 1 mil subs he makes? Hmm, wonder when will that happen...

    Are PC Manufacturers Trying to Screw You??

    Even if this is the case from the way the series is created giving own recommendation in the initial video doesn't fit. That video was about the experience when you call. If anything, the time and place for that is once they actually get the systems shipped and tested and do follow-up video since at this point we don't exactly fully know what they are getting. The second video will be where the component choice will get evaluated.

    AC Origins - ridiculous CPU usage

    At this point aside from being pretty sure that dual channel memory will improve your FPS I can't say more. You really sure that this friend of yours has similar system (aside from CPU)? GPU? RAM speed/timings? You sure you remember the settings and resolution?
  14. Phanteks Elite is good and high quality. If you are thinking of watercooling and are willing to wait 3months for your order then Singularity Computers Spectre is also nice. https://www.singularitycases.com/product/spectre/
  15. Well this seems relevant to the discussion
