If you're prepared to google a settings guide for your game, you might find you'll be happy with a 2060 or 2070 for 1440p144hz, especially...

The pricing should be much more competitive for the 65" model in this year's line-up, which is something to keep in mind for those...
18/04/2019 - 17:17
You're splitting hairs over $25 or so. Some quick google-fu shows last year's model had an MSRP of $4199, launched at $3200-$3400, while...

That would be $2200ish, though you may have found some for $2000 on clearance. Remember that this is the C9, not the B9. There's a lot of...

No, when they tip in resources and time to developers that AMD don't. Prior NVIDIA hardware didn't deal well with async compute, so of...

It's not 10-15% better, it's **at least** 10% better, rising to as much as 40-50% in titles that support the new architecture better, as...

1700 is on Newegg for cheaper if you're OK with ditching Precision Boost 2 and XFR2 for 2 more cores. Gaming difference (once the 1700 is...

More like 6 weeks, with an announcement or preview in 3 weeks. Likely a staggered launch though, and you probably don't want to buy at...

>But that should also mean they will support 8k at a stable 60 fps which will be the next benchmark. No, doubling the dimensions quadruples...

You're forgetting that consoles do 4k60 today on a souped-up RX 580. The equivalent Navi is expected to offer 2070 level performance, which...

DSC 1.2a is built to go right down to 4k50, and manufacturers are experimenting with bumping lane speeds, meaning that even as little as...

I think they might try for the 12-core then, or at least announcing pre-orders. Makes sense given there'd be plenty of run-off of those...

Don't have one in terms of upcoming services, but they call the technology 'HFR' on TVs.

Like I said, if DSC is possible, this increases the effective bandwidth where applicable.
09/04/2019 - 23:02
You literally said there's no alternative. These are all consumer-level chips at consumer-level prices. TR has a gaming mode to shut off...

HDMI updates have almost always been hardware based... HDMI 2.1 was released at the end of 2017, and developers have been threading in some...

The TR equivalent is in fact the 1920X or 2920X, and I'll just leave this here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/446778 You really might...

That depends on where multithreaded optimisation goes at a variety of levels, and isn't necessarily down to the original implementation by...
09/04/2019 - 16:03
Well I suppose Navi and Zen 2 will be a year old by then, but I don't think you'll mind given they should be capable of providing the...

If this is anything like last year's Hisense Series 9 panels, you're going to want to check out how their motion interpolation works,...

Might be worth looking into the performance of AX3000 devices instead of this, as they have a lower starting price.
07/04/2019 - 09:04
A lot of Pascal-based laptops were price dropped ages ago due to Turing laptops appearing at the end of January. Even with that in mind,...

At the absolute peak of AAA games? Sure. Anthem's an example of how that can shift though, with DLSS providing the speedup. Other examples...

Because it's 25% cheaper for 10-15% less performance? If you want 1440p144 fps with everything turned on, you're not getting the 2070 for...

Card has idle fan stop, but also a thick heatsink, making it a 2.7 slot card. It's also not factory OC, meaning it has a lower power limit...
