News Comments > AMD Radeon RX Vegas Launch
36. Re: AMD Radeon RX Vegas Launch Aug 16, 2017, 10:52 Verno
 
The funny thing is that Nvidia rightfully gets called out for their bad behavior but people are always quiet when its AMD pulling this shit because "we need a competitor for Nvidia". Guess what, we still need a competitor for Nvidia because it sure as hell isn't AMD.

Vega is really disappointing in pretty much every aspect and the worst part is that even their fanboys won't be able to obtain one now.

That and their new drivers to optimize for Nicehash is just some scumbag shit from AMD. The whole launch in general was a fucking fiasco, drip drab marketing, innuendo, bullshit benchmarks and now this crap.

Have fun selling your blowdryer cards to miners I guess AMD.

Huge fucking disappointment. We're now looking at 2019 for AMD to produce something that competes with 2016 Nvidia offerings.

Power hungry, loud, mediocre. Vega 56 is the only decent card there and an overclocked 1070 will still compete on par with that and use less power. What a shitty launch, RTG needs to muzzle Raja Koduri after his constant broken promises. The pricing isn't even very good thanks to their use of HBM2.

You want all of the amenities of modern society without paying for any of them and then act like you don't need them. No one is asking you to stick around, feel free to fuck off to some other area without all of these things.

Until then you're just a giant hypocrite and ignorant to boot. Put your money where your mouth is.

No? I thought not.

Disappointing prices given that they're competing with year old Nvidia tech. Also they really need to work on power draw, many people have downsized PSUs.

I am calling for a retirement of the "humorous" allusions to domestic violence that these stories inspire.

Noted and rejected.

We need more stick and less carrot around here for chuckleheads like you.

I thought the rest of The Night Of never really lived up to it's pilot episode. I really enjoyed season two of True Detective but I agree with its critics that the writing was all over the damned place. Vaughn was really miscast and didn't have the presence to carry his role, he made a good effort though. Rachel McAdams character was poorly served in the last few episodes too.

What did he expect? This is IP theft of an active game. Blizzard is also working on getting the identities of the people behind Elysium and shutting that down next.

Hopefully the Halo series isn't as forgettable as Terra Nova. The source material isn't exactly inspiring a lot of confidence in me and Microsoft loves to fuck up their Hollywood deals so I would be shocked if this ever made it past pre-production.

Shape of Water looks interesting, I'll watch anything with Michael Shannon in it. Take Shelter with him and Chastain was really well done. I just hope Del Toro doesn't fuck this up like Crimson Peak.

The Sheeran thing was so pointless and distracting. I watch fantasy to get an escape from reality, not see pointless cameos that break suspension of disbelief. At least in the past when they've cast musical artists there's been some attempt to costume them nearly to the point that I can barely notice. The rumor is that he was the actresses favorite artist or something so I guess he totally deserves to be there instead of an actual actor. Just get her something signed or introduce them, don't inflict it on everyone else.

Game of Thrones is so consistently high quality that something like this is pretty glaring which is why people went nuts online about it. Oh well, its all going to be over soon enough. I'm pretty happy with the direction the show has taken overall.

Nintendo made 2 million of the NES classic which was a horrible miscalculation of the demand. They also gave Japan over half of the fucking allocation despite home console sales diminishing rapidly there. They claim they will do better this time but it will need to be a lot better to meet demand. Like 10 million minimum. They already announced it was a time limited run too which is a mistake, the hoarders will hoover them up.

I'm very interested, the first games were tightly scripted and very tense. Be interesting to see how it translates to quasi-open world.

Picked up an Asus 27" 1440p IPS over the memorial day weekend. Had been hoping to see improved versions with HDR and better back light bleed control coming out, but the manufactures seem to be focused on curved screens and 35" monstrosities. Speaking of back light bled, it's there, but I only notice it when staring at a black screen, which has only occurred when I purposely created a black screen to look for bleeding. I can't say it's made me a better FPS player, but at least some of those, 'how the fuck did they see me' moments are understandable now. Turns out, bigger screen + better colors and light levels = easier to distinguish targets.

There are some HDR models coming to smaller screen sizes soon but they're going to be exorbitantly priced. You made a good choice, I have a monitor with the same panel from Acer, its the bees knees.

This shit is getting ridiculous, I am not being barred from taking my laptop onto a plane. At some point we have to accept some risk and that's ok, we can't try to prevent every possibility. There are better ways to pre-screen people.
