  1. This could in be a good thing, in regards to the quality of their AAA games. When a company no longer heavily relies on their AAA releases to make them money, they can actually slow down the development of those games, and give them more care. So fewer but better crafted AAA games. I'm all for that, if that is what this means. Also, AAA isn't exactly dying, they still make a ton of money, when made right. Just look at all the PS4 exclusives that have made absolute bank, and Sony says they'll continue to focus on that. Ubisoft them selves earns a lot on their AAA games, so it's not like th
  2. Being able to go that high is mainly for one purpose, "all-hands" meetings. As in big info meetings where only a few are supposed to speak. Since we were sent to work from home in early March, we've had weekly such status meetings where we end up in the 200-250 participant range. And a few even bigger meetings that go 300+. (This is on Webex).
  3. We're still in Q2 though, June is the last month of Q2.
  4. The different are just bug fixes on top of fixed some bugs, then fixed more bugs, and finally fixed the random number instruction that caused newer Linux distros, and Destiny 2, to not work + WHEA errors/log spam. Basically the numbers go up when AMD has done changes in behaviour, or added new features, while the letters are for bugfixes
  5. From what I've gathered following the discussions on /r/amd since launch, I've formed a guess as to what happened. AGESA appears to have the advertised boost speeds according to several reports on different forums, but AGESA, which released very close to launch, has the current reduced boost behavior. This is the AGESA that came with the last-minute BIOS update reviewers got two days before release. According to some of the BIOS developers (from ASUS and Gigabyte), AMD might have concluded that the boost behavior in AGESA was too aggressive for long-term relia
  6. Ended up with the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv X Glass. Now just waiting for my 3900X to arrive
  7. Thanks for the tips! I hadn't thought about how close the GPU would be to the side panel, I just assumed that it would be fair distance. Maybe not vertical GPU mount then. Also yes, I'm expecting that the cooling performance will be degraded, but that should be fine
  8. Noticed another thing, 801 Window does have vertical GPU mount, which I'd like, but no USB-C. While Pro 900 rev 2 has USB-C, but no vertical GPU mount...
  9. Oh, that's very interesting, the 801 Window looks great. It doesn't appear to have USB-C in the front though. But the Dark Base Pro 900 rev 2. does, and also looks great
  10. My current case is a Cooler Master HAF X, bought in 2010. I've been quite happy with it, nice and big to work in, lots of room, good airflow etc. etc. But I want something new, I'm not a fan of the look of the case anymore, and it is also slightly damaged and just plain old. I've been sort of passively looking for a new case for years, but I've struggled with finding something that looks like an obvious buy. Part of it comes down to having conflicting desires for the case, such as both interested in a much smaller case, but need room for lots of stuff. I plan to do a CPU/RAM/Mother
  11. Just want to correct the common mistake, Zen 3 and Ryzen 3 is not the same. Zen is the architecture and Ryzen branding of the consumer CPUs based on Zen. The CPUs coming this year is based on the Zen 2 architecture but is the 3rd generation of Ryzen CPUs. Zen 3 is targeted for the 4th gen Ryzen CPUs, to release next year. Also, don't fall into the trap of calling it Ryzen 3, it is Ryzen 3rd Gen or Ryzen 3000, as Ryzen 3 is a "tier" of Ryzen CPUs (the same way Intel has Core i3).
  12. I'm all for trying out higher framerate on movies. I enjoyed the Hobbit movies at 48fps, they are the most comfortable movies to view on a big screen I've ever seen. But some stuff felt a bit off at times, so clearly it is a challenge to make the movies look good at higher framerates. With today's 24fps movies I frequently get uncomfortable during movies when there is a lot of movement going on, it becomes a blurry mess that my eyes try to focus on, causing strain and discomfort. It is not a big deal, but the only way to fix this is to go for a higher framerate, or really slow down camera mo
  13. Well, Ryzen 3000 + X570 is supposed to release around summer time, so June/July is an easy guess to make, and a good way to make your guess seem credible is to draw the parallel with Radeon 7 on 7. February. At least they tried
  14. From what I've seen Microsoft Teams is a serious competitor in the space, together with Slack and Webex Teams. For enterprise sometimes what appears as the best user experience for some of the users, might be horrible for admins of really large organizations, since Microsoft Teams falls in with Office 365, I assume that it is much easier to manage it than Slack which is completely separate. Also, it's quite possible that Microsoft has given higher-ups in your company insight into future plans to make them jump aboard, it's a common tactic.
