Jim
5 months ago

Lisa struggling with the branding a couple of times, Radeon 5700XT a bit of a mouthful it seems.

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

Sorry, 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin. Blower design looks a little dented or something.

AMD undersold themselves a little since the CPUs they compared to from Intel were more expensive than Ryzen.

Donny Stanley
5 months ago

"the entire 3rd generation Ryzen stack"

so, no 16-core? 

Jim
5 months ago

Seems likely that they'll declare the 3950X as the best gaming CPU later on.

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

AMD shows that they have a lead over Intel in CSGO, which is curious as it used to be a poor title for AMD.

Anubias
5 months ago

"I'm gonna buy a 12 core processor."
So no 16 core announcement after all?

Jim
5 months ago

$250 seems a bit high for a "most people buys" CPU to me...

Donny Stanley

AMD doing the same thing as Ryzen 1 showing streaming and gaming at the same time.  Back then they kind of fudged the settings on the Intel chip so take this with a grain of salt.

Anubias
5 months ago

AMD finally learns how to burn the competition during presentations

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

99% of frames made it to the viewer for Ryzen, only 2% for the 9900K.

Donny Stanley
5 months ago

1440p for CPU comparisons isn't really exciting. That said, the 1080p chart was fairly impressive. 

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

AMD shows how the 3900X is faster than the 9900K while gaming and streaming at the same time.

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

Robert Hallock comes on stage to talk about 1440p.

Donny Stanley
5 months ago

429 FPS in CS:GO? I've yet to see a Ryzen part do higher than about 170 FPS average. 

Jim
5 months ago

Very interesting performance graph, looks basically tied with the 9900K

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

AMD at worst loses by around 5% and beats Intel in many titles including CSGO by a significant margin.

Matthew Connatser
5 months ago

AMD is about to show some 3900X benchmarks in gaming, against the 9900K.

Donny Stanley
