Tell me people of Blues News...

Being a gamer/general user why am I getting anything other than a:
2600X ($230) or 9600K ($240)?

And which would you choose between them?

Don't forget that there's added value in going with AMD. Not just from the performance to price ratio but AM4 is more or less universal for the lifetime of the platform. A 300 series board will work with a 3x000 series processor when Zen3 releases next year and with it comes 7nm beefy boy improvements such as increased clock speed and IPC.

I never really took FO76 as being canonical in a sense that it tied in to the rest of the series but rather treated it in much the same way it's treating itself as an experimental, self-contained asset flip with a dressed up world to satisfy a group of people who wanted an online experience with minimal effort. They shouldn't even address these lore issues.

There's still going to be Fallout 5 proper which will return to the single player elements so it's not like the sky is falling and the series is toast. The silver lining being that FO76 can be used as a test bed to further improve the shitty creation engine.

I don't trust Blizzard enough to provide a faithful remaster of Diablo 1 and especially 2. They'd start with good intentions by bringing it up to date in terms of fidelity but then one concession after another and all the sudden we end up with an extension of Diablo 3 with locked down trading, re-balancing, turfed b.net lobby, Kadala and so on.

1080TI still seems to be the sweet spot at the high end. I got an Evga Black Edition for $600 last month. Until those stocks are completely depleted, I think it's going to be a much better buy than any of the 20XX generation cards.

I think Nvidia is hoping for DLSS to take off among developers since there's a tangible amount of performance and quality uplift to offset the higher cost of these cards. It's certainly more interesting than ray tracing, in my opinion.

I'm going to hold off and see what AMD does with Navi. If it sucks, the 1XXX series will be cheaper after 1st quarter and I can pick up one then. I see zero reason to upgrade to a 2XXX series at this time.

Something to consider is that Pascal availability will diminish over time and tariffs are going to hit the market in January if you live in Canada or the US.

It's easier to justify than the 2080 but that's not saying it's an incredible product for the price either. This is assuming they'll actually sell for MSRP too which is a huge if.

I actually so far liked exactly ZERO of Netflix super-hero shows and just first episode of Iron Fist pushed me even further away.

I was surprised by how much I liked the first season of Daredevil. Vincent D'Onofrio was a lot of fun to watch even though the entire show feels incredibly formulaic.

The Punisher was pretty great if only because like Doom guy his power is being too mad to die. I mean, Jon Bernthal is no Thomas Jane *swoon* but he did a good job IMO but those two are where my enjoyment ends.

Sounds like he's just going to reboot the title which is probably the best case scenario anyone could ask for in this case since he has the talent to, well, not suck. I'm not a big fan of comic book movies but GotG is a pretty fun ride and the concept isn't too far off from SS providing WB gives him complete control.

Taken from Ars Technica:

It suggests that Gunn has "a totally new approach" to Suicide Squad in mind, which would hint atóbut not outright confirmósomething other than a sequel to the 2016 dud directed by David Ayer.

What a riot. Newegg hes this on sale for the same price as a good X470 board, R7 2700 and a 3200mhz 16GB kit of RAM.

But at least they aren't using toothpaste anymore for the TIM, right?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg looks about as healthy as a stick of celery that's been run over by a car in spite of beating cancer twice. Imagine if she dies or steps down during this administration.

That's a fat stacked court of spring chickens.

Japan found those who played violent games such as "Grand Theft Auto," "Call of Duty" and "Manhunt" were more likely to exhibit behavior such as being sent to the principal's office for fighting or hitting a non-family member.

Nice to see Manhunt is still getting folks butthurt. Mission accomplished.

Prices need to drop by at least $200 across the board in order to be competitive with their own product line up since they can't entirely rely on DLSS in the mean time to push performance.

Almost makes me curious to see what AMD will do with 7nm Navi.

DLSS implementation will ultimately decide whether or not these cards are worth the price of admission in regards to performance and ray tracing is still too much of a pipe dream to really get excited about.

It'd be real nice if they dropped the $200 increase slapped on at the last minute when they were officially announced too.
