It's awesome and fast but isn't this Ti several months late when compared to last Ti releases? Isn't nVidia releasing Volta this fall? That was the rumor when the 1080/70's came out was that late '17 we'd see the next gen with a smaller nanometer process.

There was a rumor a while back that nVidia would possibly expedite Volta to counter AMD's DirectX 12 advantage but I don't think there was much to it. Volta was originally always going to be a 2018 release and that is when I would still expect it now.
AMD Vega is way late and no one is really talking much about DX12 anymore. That hypetrain has left the station for now. nVidia has also done their homework and improved their DX12 performance in the latest driver releases.

Volta was originally still going to be a 16nm FinFET part by the way unless the rumors are true that there will be an intermediate 12nm high powered stepping at TSMC but so far they have only confirmed mobile parts on that node AFAIK so we'll have to wait and see about that.

TSMC 10nm for high powered parts like graphics cards most likely won't be ready for mass production next year so Volta has to be either 16nm or 12nm if TSMC is willing and able to offer a high powered process of the latter, too.

What might happen according to some rumors is that Volta might indeed ship as a 12nm part this year in the professional segment (automotive, HPC etc.) just like nVidia did it with Pascal when they launched the P100 with HBM2 a few months before the consumer GP104/GP102 last year.
So, yes, Volta might happen this year but probably not in the consumer space. Consumer cards to follow Q1/Q2 2018.

Good to know thank you CJ.

And that Tweaktown review read more like an advertisement.

Even spy agencies like the CIA have a responsibility to protect the security and privacy of Americans.

Hahahaha these EFF guys think the cia serves the People.

So AMD did nothing to support Win7 on Ryzen? Aren't there hundreds of millions of Win7 users? Stinks of control grid. Reports are the new Intel chips/boards work better on W7.

News Comments > Steam Adding 10% GST in AU
19. Re: Steam Adding 10% GST in AU Feb 22, 2017, 15:21 LittleMe
 
10% tax for a digital sale. Government greed is real! That's not a reasonable tax. Mafia extortion tax by AUS govt. Notice how they hide the tax in the sale. My guess the AUS govt won't want it shown it in the receipt to cover their greedy hand.

Yes 10% will strongly encourage people to buy keys from 3rd party sites. Governments are always dealing with the unintended consequences of taxes and regulation. This will be no different.

Shouldn't internet service be considered a utility by now? If it was, not sure if that would raise or lower prices overall.

As a utility it would raise prices, destroy competition and innovation. What utilities have competition?

Neither the dems nor repubs refuse to do the right thing. Dems want to destroy competition and hand it over to the ultra paranoid government. Repubs want to destroy competition and hand it over to the rapaciously greedy duopoly mega corporations.

The article calls for regulations but the constitution and bill of rights were supposed to do that. Always the call for more laws when ones already exist but are ignored because they are inconvenient.

I don't recommend buying it. It's buggy and terribly optimized and they need an incentive to finish it instead of it being perpetually unfinished. They will have sales later which is the opposite of how it needs to be. It should be very cheap now and more expensive later.

Media articles or studies calling for regulations are often funded by the big globalist corporations who want to control the market through expensive and burdening regulations. They write most of the rules in ways that incur the least costs to them and the most costs to their competition. Corporatism 101. 'Baby monitoring is evil!! Unless we do it. We have a government stamp of approval. Oh we wrote the rules of approval.'

edit: This would be FDA regulation.. You know they care about reasonable consumer prices and aren't a puppet of big corporations (/sarc). Don't be victims of these AMA article scam artists. Look at the people involved. They are all industry insiders who have profited immensely from the status quo ripoff health care industry. They're playing on your emotions and knee jerk reactions to regulate out of fear.

Just to reiterate, you can install this and uncheck the GeForce experience item.

Yeah! Except GFE recording feature was heavily promoted as a feature on all cards, with no online account required. Then nVidia pulled a Bait and Switch, requiring their invasive spying software for even local offline recording.

They continue to deny access to the exclusive hardware features GFE uses to record to all but their own software so we have no choice. They could easily open it up as a dll that any recording software could use. That speaks to their intentions.

Bait and Switch, force us online then give us no access for a comparable alternative, sell our personal information to any third party they choose with no compensation or notification. Yeah.

Yeah, I saw nothing in that article pointing to his qualifications or lack there of. If anything the website in question is just generic template from your typical low-end website reseller and has nothing to do with him aside from offering basic contact info. Uneasy

I like how you put it. Now it's that not only is he clueless about security he also just doesn't care about security. Let's put him in charge, lmao. It seems obvious to me RJ just wants to boost his fragile ego with this job title. Da gubernment is going to save us.

Promising. The visuals look good but the animations look limited/clunky. I expect a rough EA launch with regards to playability. Hope I'm wrong.

Thanks Cutter for the server hosting info. Good to know!

wtf was microsoft thinking, oh nvrmnd

I think they thought the creepy spycam that can monitor players' genitals would be the next rage, sort of like the next WII gimmick. The WII showed that mainstream console gamers like gimmicks. So MS put $100 of the final cost into spycam 2.0 instead of a better GPU. Brilliant!

And, today? Nintendo, Sony, Xbox. End of story.

What about mobile phones? Huge gaming market there, but different audience I guess.

The new Samsung S8 is reported to be able to dock and then become a desktop computer. Not much of a stretch to imagine people will soon also use phones as gaming consoles on the TV, wirelessly or docked.

I would completely forgive Atari if they would finally release the 1450XLD, the 1090XL expansion bay, do a run of 20,000 800XL's with the alpine keyboards and 20,000 130XE's as an out-of-court settlement.

Based solely on their word. 'The enemy is attacking our country you can't do without spending untold billions on cyber warfare.' Because war is never about gathering the flock under a banner as a subversive form of control.
