  1. BTW how does the Ryzen threadripper 3960x and ryzen 9 3950x stack up against the I9 9900KS, I9 10920X, and I9 10980XE in gaming performance?
  2. When will we see portable Gpu's from Radeon that actually have their own VRAM, etc. etc. Will that come from the Vega seires, like the Vega 16's or 20's? )r the Radeon 53 and 5500 series cards?
  3. Do they not? the hold the majority of both CPU and GPU sales for now.
  4. I have the feeling that AMD will start a sort of Tick-Tock revision soon, i.e. Ryzen 3rd gen: die shrink, Ryzen 4th gen: architecture optimization, Ryzen 5th gen, Die shrink (5nm) Ryzen 6th Gen: Architecture Optimization etc. etc. Assuming that Intel will continue to attempt to bang out chips and learns from this marketing fiasco, and AMD continues to release processors on a 12 month rotation, then Intel should mathematically catch up either around summer 2020 (10nm vs zen 2), which would conveniently coincide with 3000 series GPUs and DDR5. Other than that, 7nm in 2021 (more likely 2022) will coincide with Ryzen 5th gen, and possibly zen 3 (+?) and GDDR6x VRAM. Either way, Intel looks set to catch up in a coupe of years, or even only a few months, if they sit down, put their heads together, and roll out a die shrink and a core increase sometime this year at reasonable prices. Intel has a large budget and a good market share, there is no reason it can catch up. As well as that, Nvidia's 3000 seires might actually come at a reasonable price for it's performance, (think 3030 as a compact, $100-$110 card). If Blue and Green do their jobs and work well together, they might just boot AMD out of both the CPU and GPU mainstage.
  5. When will Intel 10nm come out? I've heard anywhere from Feb 2020 to Feb 2021. Also, how much of a performance upgrade will that be? (let's assume that they keep the same core layout and clock speeds as 14nm)
  6. So is the verdict that I should get one titan or 2 2080tis? Again, any money I save I don't go back to me, so it's best I spend every penny I can. Better to go over budget then under.
  7. As I said, I already have a pair of ROG 4k's. I don't think i'll be needing monitors anytime soon.
  8. AMD has definitely taken the lead. However, I have a feeling Intel will claw their way back into the lead. The Question is if they can stay there. AMD could well get an unshakeable hold on the market. And I can even see a future where Qualcomm pops up and kicks both of them off the center stage.
  9. Yea, all architectures have their problems when they first come out. Zen did too, but look at the beast it has become. Assuming Intel tries to sit down and work on their processors and resolve issues found in the mobile lineup, instead of relying on shitty marketing schemes (Yeah, probably not the most reliable assumption), then maybe we might have an improvement upon 14nm.
  10. Fair enough. Has anyone got hope for 10nm? A die shrink should bring better performance per core, and 10 stronger Intel cores are equal if not better to 12 AMD cores.
  11. 7nm? I read articles saying that 10nm was coming june 2020. I can very much be wrong though
  12. After the launch of 3rd gen Ryzen 9's and Threadrippers, I really have doubts about intel's future as a competitive processor manufacturer (As do many others). However, I managed to find a roadmap of intels new 10th gen, 14nm processors. They are definite, logical improvements over current, ninth generation processors. The 14nm processor has another + tacked to it, brining hopefully better per thread performance and new architecture upgrades. Also, the HD graphics 7th gen is featured on these chips, hopefully thats good news to budget gamers (i3 10100 and 10300 buyers). I also took note of the increased L3 cache, and... different socket... Someone is gonna need a new motherboard. But the better news is that it also has more cores and hyper threading throughout the lineup, which should bring intel closer to matching AMD in multi thread performance throughout the lineup. But is it good enough? Maybe, I think that Intel still holds the lead in single core performance, and more cores and more hyper-threading can only help close the gap to AMD's equivalent chips. The i9 and i7 may be good enough to close the gap with the r7 and r9 (3900x). However, with 4th gen ryzen coming soon, I doubt how long they can hold a lead. However, in June, ice lake will be released. The 10nm architecture could be quite competitive assuming that intel holds their single thread advantage, high core clocks, and 4-6-8-10 core lineup. I am interested to see if anyone shares my views. A lot of people say that intel is dead, but is it really? Sure now it has lost it's lead, but I am sure that the future holds potential.
