  1. Lets not thank you very much.
  2. You really needed to bump a 1 year old thread for this? I mean, looks nice, but very unnecessary.
  3. No on-board WiFi though...
  4. "DX12" nah man, DX11 in a wrapper. True DX12 games are nowhere to be found. Really the only game that doesn't do this wrapper bullshit is Doom with Vulkan.
  5. This is so goooooood
  6. *gasp* Apple put a BIGGER battery in a device AND a lower-power A9? What crazy world have we entered?
  7. Depends on the quality of the phases. You can have 10 60 amp parts or 16 35 amp parts, the 10 phase will be better.
  8. Oh god yes.
  9. White front though. Hnnnnngh
  10. I suggest you wait and see how that reference card performs. You can have an amazing looking card, if it runs as hot as lava while sounding like a jet fighter it's still a hunk of junk.
  11. EDIT NEW SAUCE: http://www.anandtech.com/show/11202/amd-announces-ryzen-5-april-11th AMD Ryzen 7 SKUs Cores/ Threads Base/ Turbo XFR L3 TDP Cost Cooler Ryzen 7 1800X 8/16 3.6/4.0 +100 16 MB 95 W $499 - Ryzen 7 1700X 8/16 3.4/3.8 +100 16 MB 95 W $399 - Ryzen 7 1700 8/16 3.0/3.7 +50 16 MB 65 W $329 Spire RGB AMD Ryzen 5 SKUs Cores/ Threads Base/ Turbo XFR L3 TDP Cost Cooler Ryzen 5 1600X 6/12 3.6/4.0 +100 16 MB 95 W $249 - Ryzen 5 1600 6/12 3.2/3.6 +100 16 MB 65 W $219 Spire Ryzen 5 1500X 4/8 3.5/3.7 +200 16 MB 65 W $189 Spire Ryzen 5 1400 4/8 3.2/3.4 +50 8 MB 65 W $169 Stealth Also interesting: That's a pity. The press deck: http://www.anandtech.com/Gallery/Album/5516 So, hex-core option for $219. That's brilliant and looks like the perfect middle-ground option. But as with Ryzen 7: bench for waitmarks.
  12. FYI, those boosts advertised are for 1-2 cores, max. If all 4 cores are in use it'll boost to a lower frequency. That's not Mac-specific, that goes for all Intel CPUs (and recently AMD's as well).
  13. On MacOS? Simply enable Siri via the system preferences but then don't assign a key combination to activate it. On iOS it's as simple as deactivating it via settings.
  14. A: no, totally different architectures won't CrossFire. B: this isn't the forum section to ask. Go to Graphics Cards next time.
  15. ...Or spend like $20 more for an RX470 which blows it out of the water.
  16. Clearer pics: https://videocardz.com/67454/amd-radeon-rx-vegas-got-a-soul-and-brain That's definitely not white, that's brushed aluminium. Not just the backplate it seems, but the entire card.
  17. Lithium batteries are literally bombs. They just are. If they get to hot, they go boom. If you squeeze them, they go boom. If you puncture them, they go boom. If you look at them funny, they go boom. It's time for a new battery that lasts a lot longer, charges a lot quicker, does not explode in your face and can be mass produced easily within a year. Get lithium batteries out of existence ASAP.
  18. Don't think this version is, but I also don't think AMD's top-end card will get an air cooler after having put the Fury X on water.
  19. That's because Apple doesn't like putting in actual beefy GPUs so you're left with a low-cloced P11 chip. All for the sake of making it 0.1mm thinner.
  20. White and black. Nice. Now lets hope the blower style stock cooler isn't trash and sounds like an F-15 with afterburners on.
  21. From the article: "We have confirmation from AMD that there are no silly games going to be played with Ryzen 5. The six-core parts will be a strict 3+3 combination, while the four-core parts will use 2+2. This will be true across all CPUs, ensuring a consistent performance throughout." Unless AMD can fix the super slow communication speeds between CCXs I fear that the 4c8t R5 parts won't really hold up to the i5 until games/Windows realize how Ryzen is set up.
  22. That's where reviewers come in. If they get a 1600 up close to 1600X levels the 1600 obviously is the better buy.
  23. Almost certainly it's a 3+3 setup to keep the total of 16MB L3 cache.
  24. They have a 6c12t part for the competition's 4c4t part for the same price. What performance difference you have now in favour of the i5 will diminish and turn into a massive win for the 1600(X) when games get coded for more than 4 (or 8 in the i7's case) threads (which is where we're headed in the very near future). Aka FineWine™ will do it's thing.
  25. Klopt. Maar dan wil ik wel dat de niet-relschoppende Turken die fel tegen Erdogan's plannen zijn hun mond open gaan trekken om die kleine groep malloten de mond te snoeren. Het moet niet gekker worden.
