And Trumps brother is part of the board You can't make this shit up that's how absurd it is. It's not just nepotism, it's elitist class-focused scumbags pushing each other into jobs where they don't belong. Creating in essence a caste system

Jimmy Hoffa is a silent partner. Creating in nonsense a casket-less system. spooky
Actually, he is. I googled before posting sarcastic replies.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZeniMax_Media
ZeniMax's Board of Directors consists of eight individuals:
[...]
Robert S. Trump (President, Trump Management, Inc.)

Edit:
Also
https://www.zenimax.com/about

Although to me, it's just as interesting that the board of directors includes people like:
Jerry Bruckheimer
Leslie Moonves

Heh, I thought this was well known... It's one of the reason I harbor a subconscious dislike for Zenimaxx for a few decades now... but it also just so happens that they, sometimes, make pay for great games.

You all know the reason that Zenimax is so quick to litigate, Right?

Lynda Carter's husband, Robert Altman, is a partner / one of the head honchos at Zenimax and he is an Attorney. This is also why they get Lynda to do Voice Acting in their games.

Nepotism! Ucrazy

I just knew it! Bigcry

if its close to the same Frostbite engine they used in BF1, then that would be excellent - because that one runs great and looks awesome at the same time

The more I play UE4 the more angry I get, that engine for some reason has no scaling. running 4k gives you literally 25% the performance. No other engine operated like that, don't really know what they're doing. It seems optimized for 1080 resolutions.

I dunno if you intended it that way, but this is really funny

4k pixels = 8.294.400
HD pixels = 2.073.600

Now take a wild guess why you see 25% of the performance of HD ^^ But it can also be because AO/DOF/AA/SS was active. All screenspace effects will add a HUGE frame delay. 4 times as much screenspace, after all.

Remains to be seen how the 6 core versions fare, probably much better For gaming the only thing that matters is single *thread* and if you render in Cinema4D or 3dsmax, the ryzen 1800x is something to consider.

Welcome to reality

Facts are busting this old myth up good^^

Interesting read, thanks But only with latest Titan GPU... so meh.

So meh? Its the worst case scenario for a CPU. Especially those 720p graphs, if its fine at 720p with a Titan XP, it'll be fine at any res higher than 720p with any GPU.

Oh, and one last thing... Userbenchmark shows that the kabylake VS ryzen ST scores are comparable for some workloads. Mind you, Kaby is using Turbo there and goes up to 3.8ghz on this chip in ST, Ryzen is not and stays at 3.4ghz in this test with turbo disabled.

So the Kaby has a 11.76% ghz advantage.

Kaby VS Ryz scores source

SC Mixed:
Ryz @ 3.4 = 111
Kaby @ 3.8 = 111

SC Int
Ryz @ 3.4 = 98.8
Kaby @ 3.8 = 114 ( 15.3% advantage )

SC Float
Ryz @ 3.4 = 109
Kaby @ 3.8 = 122 ( 11.9% advantage )

Pretty even on the float IPC wise when you consider the 11.76% ghz advantage of Kaby, which is all that matters for gaming.

Well "meh" because that setup costs way too much for my taste.

I guess we will truly see on march 3rd when that silly NDA lifts, I am very curious to see some proper and vast benchmarks, especially deep look at memory perf, noise and power curves, especially idle behavior, and boost behavior. But if I am honest, 8 core doesn't interest me, I want 6 cores for sub 250€ , so yeah... ^^

When I compare cpu, I compare same price cpu's.... but also the platform price itself. And Ryzen not supporting W7 already pisses me off.

The reason you can't go per annual income is that DMCA claims can (and do) come from (fake?) non-profits or gov sponsored shit-houses sitting in high corruption countries. They don't post annual income because they have none

This sounds more like a nuke it from orbit strategy, targeting anything that even hints at infringement, regardless of actual content, and then issuing take downs for sites that don't even exist yet, but could exist in the future, and might have infringing material on it. That's nuts, and Google is okay with it, they just don't want more rules. I shudder to think what more would look like.
Do you know what this is?

Its probably fraud. Probable DMCA takedown fraud by the service contractor the rights holder use to enforce their copyright:

https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-site-with-no-traffic-attracts-49m-mainly-bogus-dmca-notices-170219/

"So in summary, APDIF makes up its own URLs, MP3Toys randomly generates a page of music that has nothing to do with the URL input, APDIF logs it as an infringement of its clients’ rights, and sends a complaint to Google."

Like the click fraud some service contractors are doing in the realm of online advertising, this seems to me like "DMCA notice fraud" to scam the copyright holders.

Exactly, it is a method for the brazil scam outfit to fudge numbers and get more gov funds to do, yeah.. what exactly? DMCA random pages that don't exist until you search for them (That is truly meta) ;p

Interesting read, thanks But that's only the case if you are not GPU bound.... and who isn't? Normal people use a 1070 or something, they are never gonna see these gains. Now, with Vulcan games this will matter, but how many you see of em? 1.. how many true DX12 games not hampered by UWP?

8 cores and worse performance and power consumption than an Intel 4 core...

how much worse? is it bigly?

Ryzen 1800X is 20% per core, 10% per thread slower than a 7700K (both stock)

Price 7700K = 350€
Price Ryzen1800X = 560€

Single thread perf cinebench 15
Core i7 7700K - 187
Ryzen 1800X - 162


Multi thread perf cinbench 15
Core i7 7700K - 963 / 4 (8 threads) = 240 per core / 120 per thread
Ryzen 1800X - 1601 / 8 (16 threads) = 200 per core / 100 per thread


200€ more for 10% less performance per thread. But if you are into overclocking and you replace the shit default cooler you can get much better results, you can get the threads at least to be on par to a stock 7700k, but you still pay 200€ more. And if you OC the 7700K you never gonna catch up with Ryzen 1800X in raw power available.

Remains to be seen how the 6 core versions fare, probably much better For gaming the only thing that matters is single *thread* and if you render in Cinema4D or 3dsmax, the ryzen 1800x is something to consider.

Pretty impressive win, especially because to my eyes there were 2 enemy cheaters (Widow and Winston) if that Winston ult was "pure skill" then I wanna buy that gaming chair and mouse pad that gives you lock-on and insta 180° turns

The Widow cheated obvious, the Winston cheated probably with the expensive aimbot that has hit % settings and only triggers during ults, it's nearly undetectable.

People without money should be able to submit claims without worrying that a mistake will result in heavy penalties, so the first few incorrect claims should result in a warning rather than a fee. This leaves room for it to be abused, but that's better than making copyright enforcement only for the wealthy.

I agree that this should have nothing to do with searches; this should only be for places that actually host the content.

3 strikes for DMCA claims would work as well, but under Trump what are the chances? ^^ It's gonna be an absolutely devastating fine though and on top a reward for whoever received the DMCA claim, because each claim adds a TON of extra required work, for nothing.

I wonder what the drones gonna do when it rains though...
