  1. I sure hope it doesn't, because it's very disappointing, and fails even compared to other hardware agnostic solutions like Unreal's TAAU. I just can't fathom how anyone can look at this and think it's actually impressive. The best case scenario is it running at 4K with a higher internal resolution than DLSS quality and still putting out a worse image. Meanwhile the people that actually need FSR (those running old GPUs at 1080p) aren't benefiting from this at all unless they're really desperate.
  2. We must have different definitions of the word "impressive" It only really "shines" at 4K on the highest quality setting, then proceeds to jump off a cliff. At 1440p it's noticeably worse, and its unusable at 1080p IMO.
  3. According to Techpowerup it's going to be $399 for 32 gigs, Jesus. https://www.techpowerup.com/283515/team-group-steps-into-the-new-ddr5-era-launches-team-elite-ddr5-dimm
  4. TeamGroup will be launching some of the first consumer grade DDR5 modules for desktop later this month, they'll be available at major retailers such as Amazon and Newegg. According to Techpowerup 32GB will cost you $399. Interesting how it's launching so early considering that Alder Lake is rumored to launch late October, I'm assuming they're expecting not to sell very many of these for the first few months haha. Anyway it's exciting news, now it's only a matter of time before we get the first reasonably specced DDR5, this 4800MHz CL40 stuff leaves a lot to be desired. Sour
  5. It's a lot of technical stuff that goes over my head, but still cool to see. Source https://www.anandtech.com/show/16702/nvme-20-specification-released
  6. Because it’s just a marketing stunt and data farming tool. You’re better off just muting anybody saying hateful shit, and reporting them if possible.
  7. This is a late April's Fools joke, right? I can't believe they've unironically got an N-word button, lol
  8. The 11700K performs within margin of error in gaming versus Comet Lake for the most part, so still behind Ryzen 5000 on average. Productivity is where the only real performance gains are seen and even then it's still not enough to match the 5800X in most cases. Power efficiency isn't looking great either, the single core power consumption is particularly bad. Wait for Alder Lake.
  9. Comet Lake-S release date: April 30th 2020 Comet Lake-S one year anniversary plus six months: October 30th 2021 Literally in the middle of Q4.. Why is Intel so opposed to longer product cycles anyway? They seem to have worked pretty well for AMD. They work just fine in the GPU market too.
  10. I'll give you that. Although I don't feel like it would've been that offensive to investors and system integrators if they had asked for an extra six months on Comet Lake. They could've sold it as a marketing thing by advertising Alder Lake as having a colossal performance bump over Comet Lake. Then again maybe Intel will just ignore Rocket Lake in the marketing anyway and plaster "~40% performance boost over Skylake!" everywhere. That's pocket change to Intel, companies their size write off losses like that all the time. AMD's stock situation is getting better thou
  11. Take a look at these three: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/lg/27gl83a-b (144Hz) https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/dell/s2721dgf (165Hz) https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/msi/optix-mag274qrf-qd (165Hz) All IPS, so good colors and viewing angles, and they all have excellent response times. Not sure on European pricing for these but if they're similar to US pricing they should still fit within your budget, especially the first one. There's also the Gigabyte M27Q (https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/m27q) it's
  12. You say there isn't performance regression then immediately proceed to say it's slightly slower in some benchmarks. Sounds like regression to me, but okay? Oh and FYI Rocket Lake caps out at 8 cores, so compared to Comet Lake it's literally going to be a regression in performance for any workload that scales with cores, the IPC gains just aren't enough to make up a 2 core deficit.
  13. I guess I'm just baffled they even bothered releasing this thing. They would've been better off just taking the L for a year while Alder Lake finishes, especially since the gap between the two is seemingly going to be less than six full months. All Rocket Lake does is further the perception that Intel has become a joke in the desktop market, it's also negatively impacted the last thing Intel had going for them (gaming performance). I mean could you imagine if Nvidia went five years just releasing refreshes of Pascal on 14nm, and then they finally come out with a new architecture..
  14. Two tests? Dude look at the benchmarks again, it's worse or at best tied with Skylake in most of the game benchmarks, and in several of the other benchmarks it ties with the 9900K. If that's all Intel can muster after five years I'd consider that pretty pathetic. I don't know why you're so hellbent on fanboying over a multibillion dollar corporation.
  15. The key differences here are that Zen 3 didn't take over 5 years to happen, and Zen 3 was faster across the board in consumer applications. Pretty sure Zen 3 doesn't run slower than Zen 2 in any games for example. Also I find it telling you're having to dig up some minor performance regressions for Zen 3 that only really manifest on paper, meanwhile I'm basing my opinion of Rocket Lake on how it performs in actual tests.
  16. Skylake is over five years old, so I'm sorry but there's no excuse for Rocket Lake performing worse anywhere, it should be better in every scenario. It's disappointing that this is the best Intel can offer after half a decade of stagnation on architecture.
  17. Aside from the power numbers (which I have fixed in the OP) what did I exaggerate or get wrong? Rocket Lake is legitimately performing worse than Skylake in some tests, and across the board it's worse than the 5800X aside from AVX512, which practically nobody in the market for these chips cares about. You can nitpick all you want but the fact is that this is a disastrous launch, nothing about Rocket Lake is enticing to the average consumer, Zen 3 beats in raw performance and power efficiency, Comet Lake and Zen 2 have it beat on price. Who is this product for?
  18. Performance gains range from mediocre to non-existent, and in the worst cases it's actually slower than Skylake, overall it's still slower vs the 5800X despite consuming significantly more power. Interestingly it also has higher core-to-core latency and a worse performing L3 cache compared to Skylake. It's impressively bad, I'm at a loss for words.

  19. I doubt it, multiple companies are working on getting DDR5 out this year. Plus "too expensive to make sense" isn't even real, motherboard manufacturers love an excuse to jack up prices.
  20. The 11900K and 11700K appeared on PassMark https://videocardz.com/newz/intel-core-i9-11900k-rocket-lake-s-cpu-debuts-on-passmark-with-the-fastest-single-core-performance-in-the-ranking tl;dr 11900k and 11700k beat Zen 3 in single thread performance, 11900k is slightly behind in multithread vs 5800X.
  21. To be fair the 3090 is also a joke for gaming. Almost twice the price of a 3080 for what, 10-15% more performance and an extremely overkill amount of VRAM? IMO this 20GB 3080 and the 3090 are just gimped Titans.
  22. I'm assuming this is intended for miners and workstations? A 20GB 3080 is going to be hopelessly out of date long before 20GB is beneficial for games.
  23. People use PC for more than games FYI. Regardless, Windows scheduler will handle it I think. This isn't Intel's first x86 hybrid design, Lakefield was a test run essentially. It's not weird, we've seen hybrid architectures used in smartphones for ages. If anything it's weird that we didn't see it sooner on x86, laptops will benefit a lot from this. No doubt it'll be less useful for desktops, but it'll still offer better power efficiency when idle or doing lower power tasks like web browsing. Also assuming all the cores can be used simultaneously I could also see it being beneficial
  24. Rocket Lake is such a weird release. In a vacuum it would be a decent release with the IPC increase, but with Alder Lake is rumored to be coming in September I just don't see who's in the market for one of these. I guess if you don't have a PC sure but for literally anyone else you'd be better served waiting as you're looking at an even bigger performance increase plus DDR5, it's just going to a way longer lasting platform.
