Does anyone here (all of us geeks) know what that actually means? I do not, and will be sending a squad of inquisitors to the relevant sites to discern the truth.

I'm hoping a $1,200 budget sans video card will get it done.bstar wrote on Sep 26, 2022, 11:51:AMD's Value Problem : Ryzen 5 7600X CPU Review, Benchmarks, & Expensive Motherboards gamers nexus https://youtu.be/JM-twyjfYIw
The Ryzen 5 7600x is pretty incredible. I'm probably going to snag this for my son's build once an affordable micro atx/itx board is available.

Besides the rediculous price tiers at announcement, RTX 4000 performance is still way ahead of RTX 3000 at the same price points, so what is with all this complaining?
I'm just waiting for a reasonably price $500-600 version (RTX 4060Ti or 4070?) and will see how it compares to my 3070FE and sell that if I want to upgrade.

Nvidia could have gained a foothold by partnering with Steam on the Deck. But, no, that means they'd actually have to do some real engineering for the first time outside of their narrow little focus. So, yet another market ceded to AMD.

This whole launch oozes of hubris, especially after the Evga debacle. I really hope AMD's RDNA3 announcement hits Nvidia hard at the 4080 range of cards.
i'm betting the radeon 7900xt will be faster than the 4080 16gb and probably cost $1000. the sweet spot will be the 7800xt which will almost certainly be faster than that garbage ass 4080 12gb and probably msrp $700.

It's like someone saw Space Quest Historian's youtube avatar and said "let's make an entire game that looks like THAT!"

Realistically the only thing that can wear out is the fans. Yeah, if they've been running 24/7 at full throttle, you're putting a lot more wear on the bearings, but the quality of modern GPU fans, even on budget cards, is pretty damn high nowadays.
If it posts, and the fans are all spinning, it will probably serve you well.
