Zen 3, here I come!
Right? And with the rumors/leaks of RNDA2 looking like a total beast and potentially equal to if not better than Ampere, I might be doing a complete 180 here on my next build - going from an Intel/Nvidia combo for the last 15 years to a full AMD setup... crazy. Famous last words..
As someone with an all AMD system right now (3700X + 5700XT)...don't. While the hardware may kick total ass on paper, AMD's Radeon drivers on Windows are years behind Nvidia's. If AMD put their Linux driver team on also doing the Windows drivers, I would be less skeptical. As it stands, their Windows driver team is like a group of C stringers. Which is truly disappointing.

Seriously considering buying some stock of AMD (not just because it went nuts today and a couple days ago)... With RNDA2, Zen3 and 4 coming up, RDNA3 and the consoles releasing in a few months if feels like it's a stock that can't fail... EDIT: and their continuing growth/success in the server market and expanding in OEMS too for their processors.
As usual for the stock market most of the above is already factored into the current valuation of the stock... and some would say it is factored in more than properly already. The AMD P/E ratio is already through the roof. AMD has a P/E of over 70 while Intel sits at 12, i.e. AMD stock is valued 6x higher than Intel (nVidia is at about 40 by the way which is also considered "dangerously" high by many). The long term S&P 500 average P/E is between 13 and 15. AMD will have to keep posting record after record to justify the high valuation or many investors will drop it like a hot potato if there is as much as a slight hiccup.
OTOH, the stock market rarely follows logic. It is entirely possible that AMD stock will just keep trucking into infinity. I will stay away from it but that might be a poor choice, of course, if the stock hits $100 next year. Hindsight is always 20/20.
As a more conservative investor, I have personally invested in a less "hot" and more neutral stock a few months ago: TSMC. Bought it in March and it stands at +33% for now. Not too bad...

So Zen 3 is exactly that. Zen 3 is looking great in the labs, we're on track to launch later this year, and I can't wait to tell you more about it."
Imo the only news that mattered here was their ceo stating in the past 24 hours that the series 4000 desktop cpus will be out by end of the year.
If you listen carefully you can hear Intel saying 'oh fuck' in the background.

Whilst Shalebridge Cradle was only a quest in TDS that was, hands down, the anus puckering experience. Outlast was PFS too.

The funny thing is that the "funny" Carbot video isn't at all funny when you know what it is about. More like makes you remember why you stopped playing D2 online.

I've played through this short demo twice; I will likely buy this.
It's simple, it's late 90's and I liked it. The devs have been pretty active on Steam Discussion group the last few days, seem like great people. Feedback has been positive too.
They describe it as Thief with guns. thiefwithguns.com will direct you to the steam page.
