Heh turns out the RX6800 is actually faster than nvidias rtx 3800 in 4k and beyond unless DLSS is enabled,

AMD uses dx12's native support for raytracing which is not as fast as nvidias but still thats quite impressive :)

Imagine the RX6800 with DLSS support... ouch.

*RTX 3080

AMD is working on their own version of DLSS called FidelityFX Super Resolution or something like that. But it won't be available at launch.

Also rage mode though im a bit ambivalent on that one since normally the cpu does not handle gfx calls to well.

Originally i would have gone with the RX 5700 xt to replace my aging R9 390 but if the prices on the 6800 hold i would probably go with one of those. My screen cant do 4K anyway xD so its no big loss.

NVIDIA Reveals GeForce RTX 3060: Launching Late February For $329

RTX 3080 = 10 GB
RTX 3070 = 8 GB
RTX 3060 Ti = 8 GB
RTX 3060 = 12 GB

Strange things happening over at Nvidia. If you manage to find RTX 3060 at MSRP, you might want to snatch it up.

Intel Previews 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake: Core i9-11900K and Z590, Coming Q1

Intel will retake the gaming crown from AMD... barely.

I'm just looking at the news of all these new graphics cards, and all I can think about is how to get better at OpenXcom.

I don't think I'm currently the target for this hardware.

A word of warning, Agent Denton. This was a simulated experience; real LAMs will not be so forgiving.

This is the worst time in years to buy any new hardware. Maybe check things out in late 2022 or 2023 if you are fine with what you have. Around that time the multi-chip module (chiplet) GPUs will be shaking things up and raytracing performance will be much better.

https://videocardz.com/newz/amd-navi-24-beige-goby-entry-level-gpu-to-offer-1024-cores

Navi 24, very small RDNA2 GPU with 16 CUs.

https://videocardz.com/newz/amd-ryzen-9-6900h-rembrandt-rumored-to-feature-zen3-cores-and-12-rdna2-compute-units

Even smaller, Rembrandt APU with 12 CUs. But that could mean a 6700G would have over double the graphics performance of the Ryzen 7 5700G.

The next Samsung Exynos flagship SoC for smartphones will have AMD graphics, including support for raytracing and variable rate shading. Presumably FidelityFX Super Resolution as well.

gah my R9 390 just blew up :S so now im using an asus strix 970 gtx with half the ram, performance wise it is quite similar to the R9 390 but in larger resolutions the 390 has it beat (probably because of it only having 4 gb "3.5gb actually" compared to the 390's 8GB).

 

I managed to find the faulty component on my R9 390 but my eyesight is shit these days and i dont have the tools to desolder smd's so if anyone wants to toy with getting it running again i can point out the components that need to be changed.

Not (yet) exactly directly connected to CPU's and video cards but some good news. Maybe we will do away with the 3 USB connections common for modern devices now and we'll only have 1 - the USB-C. Atm Apple protests a lot because they want to keep their lightning charger for their devices.

Bullet point - "USB-C will become the standard port for all smartphones, tablets,
cameras, headphones, portable speakers and handheld videogame console"

I simply hope that this will be the new standard for internal hardware components in the future too. I mean the connectors to and from the motherboard etc. That would simplify and streamline PC buildings and basic maintenance so much... I don't know if it's feasible and so on but it's just common sense...

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
