I have yet to see ray tracing be that big a deal in any game, usually I am far more concerned about frame rate to even turn it on. What a really find ridiculous is the idiot retailers still stuck with 20xx cards that have not lowered prices. Hopefully AMD will have enough stock with their new cards, Nvidia will be suffering for lack of product into the next year. I was talking to a friend at Microcenter, they ordered 2000 3070's and are getting 90. Nvidia's woes continue.

We'll still need to see what AMD, Sony and MS can do. It maybe an issue where the market has become too big to fit any immediate demand. We also could be feeling the effects of C19 around the world. My guess at this time, anything new and leading in high tech here is going to be very hard to get.

While I am all for government oversight on big businesses and potential abuses, I feel like Google is more popular because it is in fact one of the best search engines. I've tried others on many occasions and they just aren't as good at giving back decent results. If anything, I would prefer they look into their Youtube management. There seems to be more problems there.

Right and Amazon is the best at what they do. Bell Labs was once upon a time as well.

What I'm waiting for is for them to get their base set and grow it from there. They have too many apps/moving pieces, they need to combine and simplify.

Looks like just another six degrees of freedom vehicle shooter that have never had a large audience.

Because that's how we roll here, unless it is super popular Blue's News puts its nose up to it.

To me what is interesting is how close a water sim is to a space sim.

Watching some of the PS5 article it hits me the consoles missed a big opportunity this go around, they should have offered dual screen support and the off-screen being the social media screen. It would have been a great feature for next-gen and would have pushed enough gamers to go dual tv's.

1. Not missing any zeroes. I have Spectrum's 1Gb service. I have never seen the advertised speed. Ever. Fastest I've ever gotten was 800Mbps, once.

Well one example doesn't make them all the same. I get 700-800 regularly with my gig setup. I didn't take their offer on their modem so they said they wouldn't guarntee 1 gig, I'm fine with what I get, that said I don't always get 700-800 but 300+ almost always.

I play SC with a friend sometimes... it's so funny the different vibe I get when I'm on his SC Discord and what I read here. Most of them have put north of $1k into the game on ships. I don't know how much my friend has put in, but I would say it's likely around $3k.
It probably has something to do with the psychology described here:

That's absolutely it. I knew there had to be a logical fallacy for this.

I'm very confident this is going to be a pretty well oiled machine on release. They are hammering away at fixes so day one should be good. The feedback has been concentrated on certain areas I feel and that is good, they know what they need to do. They've made some pretty big game mechanic changes to DOS's in EA/KS prior, when they do make these changes its going to please a lot of people. The story seems straight up legit, well everything'd. It's going to shape up fine.

After yesterday's news I'm rethinking everything. Doesn't mean I won't end up with a 5800x but I'm now looking back at Intel again (or wait until their next) and even the 5600x or 3700x/3600. Then I have to weigh that this is the last of the what's is it called the AM3 MB's. So do I change everything now to change it all again so soon (cpu/mb/ram)?

Instead of quick answers, I have a lot more questions that I thought I would have. Just writing this my brain is saying wait or go cheap for now... Damn.

I think it depends on where you are coming from. If you already have a somewhat decent six core (or more) CPU and you play at a 4K resolution anyway where you will be GPU-limited in 99.9% of games then delaying a purchase until late 2021 or even 2022 could make a lot of sense. Zen 3 is the final CPU for AM4 and most likely the final DDR4 platform. Intel's Rocket Lake (final 14nm desktop CPU) in March 2021 will be the final socket 1200 CPU (well, Intel only ever has two CPU gens per socket anyway) and also quite likely the final DDR4 platform. Both choices from AMD and Intel are a dead end at this point.

If you can wait because you have a decent system already then I'd save the money for a RTX 3080 or a RX 6xxx graphics card and wait for AM5 or socket 1700 (Alder Lake 10nm desktop) platforms with DDR5 support in late 2021 or early 2022.

On the other hand, it could also make sense to buy Zen 3 now and then wait until the second or maybe even third wave of DDR5 platforms. As usual with every DDR stepping, DDR5 will most likely start slow (especially latency) and expensive. Decent low latency modules at an attractive price will take at least a year or two to materialize. It will probably not make much sense to be an early DDR5 adopter. Socket AM5 and Zen 4 might also come with its own issues. AMD has a track record of problematic releases with many required AGESA BIOS fixes before things are finally working as intended. A new platform/socket/chipset/RAM is going to pose a challenge. It could make sense to wait for the second wave of AM5 CPUs whether that will be a Zen 4 refresh or Zen 5 to avoid any early adopter shenanigans.

Personally, I'm good thanks to a i9-9900K system, 32GB DDR4 and a 4K screen. I'm GPU bottlenecked all the time so the only upgrade I really "need" is a RTX 3080 with 20GB VRAM as soon as those become available. If I jump on the Zen 3 bandwagon then it'd be a just for fun curiosity upgrade to check out what AMD is like these days. I will more likely wait for the second or third wave of DDR5 platforms though, i.e. AMD Zen 5 or Intel Meteor Lake which should arrive by late 2022 or early/mid 2023. I hope we will have affordable 32GB DDR5-6400 or maybe even DDR5-8400 kits with low latencies by then.

Yep good stuff. I'm way outdated on my CPU, 8 year old i7.

Yeah I'm going to look at a cheap 6/12 possibility and wait for next since as you say the big changeover is coming.

I like how everyone is ignoring the elephant in the room. There are exactly 2 multiplayer modes in a multiplayer focused game. Now these might be the bees-knees I don't know, but from what I've read and seen, they get very repetitive, very fast.

This is the kind of game that would flourish with a map editor and/or some kind of scenario builder, all of which could be released as paid or even (*gasp*) FREE DLC down the line. However since this is EA, and they are calling it done and done, I doubt they will even release a couple of patches.

They aren't doing DLC and EA isn't in to supporting the mod community.

Well I guess I'll believe it when I see it. I remember the olden days of yore, when AMD Athlon kicked Intel's butt, at nearly half the cost. I lived through those days. If AMD manages to equal or beat Intel in single-threaded performance but increases it's price to match Intel's, I don't consider that a win for the consumers.

Yeah it definitely reduces the excitement. After yesterday's news I'm rethinking everything.
