OH even Microsoft said over 360 is more powerful then ps3, if it was a fact ps3 is more powerful they would sued up the ass, but good thing, its just a made fact



""With Sony if they do hit the specs which they've said they'll have there's a debate, there's a couple of categories where they outdo us, there's several categories where we outdo them. On balance I think most people who study the space will tell you our system is slightly more powerful then theirs from a hardware standpoint.."

Seems my comment dissipated.

Claims made by Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo in reference to their own and their competitors hardware capability should always be taken with a grain of salt.

They have a financial driven bias to shine their own hardware in the best possible light, whilst minimizing their competitors advantage.

I.E. The power of the cloud, blast processing and so on.

your whole argument is highly subjective, and not backed by any facts. I can go to beyond3d which i believe many developers and knowledgable people post, and they will say WII U exclusives don't look like anything 360/ps3 couldn't do, and not more technically impressive then 360/ps3 games does that mean they don't know what here talking about? and you are smarted then everyone else. you're not even a developer, so my point still stands. it a pointless comparison especially when you are comparing cartoony games vs realistic games so your computation budget differently . generally which exclusive looks better will go down to bias, just look at the SOTC vs BOTW thread.



So despite almost every port running worse on Wiiu developers didn't struggle with the Cpu? lets just make the old excuse of shit port or lazy developer, that commonly used by people being hurt about there favorite console running the game inferior to another.



I don't care if you think it is highly subjective.

Never once have I claimed that a WiiU exclusive doesn't look like it couldn't run on an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.

Claiming I am not a developer is an assertion, do you have evidence for that?

When did I compare cartoony and realistic games? I am not comparing the games themselves, but rather the underlying technology.

We have already established that the WiiU's CPU is not it's strong point. You are making this argument out to be something it is not.

on 07 February 2018

we don't have proper documentation of the wiiu gpu, and looking at real world results, i dont see how most agmes no showing in advantges, infact a few games ran lower resolution proves the wiiu gpu is a step up.

on 07 February 2018

We do know the WiiU is a Very-Long-Instruction-Word based Radeon graphics processor, so we can draw comparisons to the other GPU's in that family using a similar ISA.

As for games not showing advantages... Keep in mind for a long time that Call of Duty not only performed worst on the Playstation 3, it looked worst, it ran at a lower resolution than the Xbox 360 counterpart... That is despite the higher theoretical performance ceiling the Playstation 3 offered.

You can have the best hardware in the world, but if it's capabilities are not appropriately utilized, then it's pointless.

on 08 February 2018

the thing is ps3 had clear disadvantages, if it was clearly superior it wouldn't have those problems, in the end people who had a 360 enjoyed the best experience in most games, and thats all that matters when comparing hardware.

on 08 February 2018

Indeed the Playstation 3 does have some disadvantages.

But that doesn't mean it isn't the platform that is technically superior in terms of capability.

It just means, the games that are ported to the Playstation 3, that suffer a reduction in performance and image quality are shit ports as they aren't leveraging the hardware capabilities appropriately.

on 08 February 2018

i wont call them shit ports, , it's more like ps3/wiiu were hardware thats not as good as 360, if the hardware is superior in noteworthy way most developers will get there games run better, that never happened ,it just means each hardware has a disadvantage and advantages, and if you want the hardware that runs games best which is all that matters in the end, it's 360.

on 08 February 2018

Playstation 3 did eventually have games that ran better than the Xbox 360 version.
It wasn't common. But it did happen.

And WiiU has games that not only look better than the Xbox 360 version, but run better.
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-need-for-speed-most-wanted-wii-u-face-off

on 10 February 2018

that need for speed was a minuscule upgrade.

on 11 February 2018

It was still an upgrade.

on 12 February 2018

No one in their right mind would assume that the WiiU was some kind of technical marvel that was capable of generationally-more complex visuals.

It is certainly more efficient.

It's still more capable than the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 when games are made it's way. But a generation leap it is not.

on 12 February 2018

i wouldn't consider it any leap at all.

on 12 February 2018

and almost every 360 port thats better then wiiu doesn't count because of the shit port excuse, but once there is a upgrade, hey look it counts.

on 12 February 2018

One of the biggest and most annoying limitations for Developers last generation was DRAM or lack thereof.

The WiiU rectified that to a degree compared to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

on 12 February 2018

It really doesnt matter, wiiu the whole gen ran games worse then 360 because of the cpu, it even had 3 games run at lower resolution, superior hardware runs mots games better.

on 12 February 2018

* Superior hardware that is on the market long enough so that developers have ample time to learn.

* Has a large enough marketshare to make the financial investment and time feasible to port games over in a high quality state.

* Actually takes advantage of all the platforms various nuances.

The Playstation 3 wasn't getting great ports until years into the generation despite it's "superior hardware". - I think that's the point you continue to gloss over.

on 12 February 2018

superior hardware doesn't really need that, it just runs games better, even after all the years 360 games usually ran technically demanding games better then ps3, but we''agree to disagree.

on 12 February 2018

what you are describing is hardware that has advantages and disadvantages, and to the developers that got the best results on 360 that was the superior hardware for that game.

on 12 February 2018

Are you trying to assert that the Xbox 360 is superior to the Playsation 3 on a technical level?

on 15 February 2018

I said they both have there advantages, and disadvantages, depending on what the game required each console can be superior to one another. but like its highly debatable, ps3 being superior is not a fact.

on 15 February 2018

only fact there is, is 360 ran most games better, if you wanted most games running better, the fact is 360 was superior.

on 15 February 2018

Having advantages/disadvantages is a given.
The Xbox 360 also had disadvantages.

But trying to assert that the Xbox 360 is technically superior to the Playstation 3 is ludicrous.

I am not going to play this insane game any longer. Haha

on 15 February 2018

why don't post at beyond3d most developers have the same opinion.

on 15 February 2018

acrtually many developers think 360 is superior the important is nobody says its a fact

on 15 February 2018

Why would I bother with Beyond3D?
I am involved in other circles.

on 16 February 2018

well i'm just pointing out 360 being superior is not absurd as you think because even developers share that thought, even a game developed leading on ps3, sees very little downgrade on 360, as hardware it ran games better which would qualify as superior hardware in my book, but every has there opinion on the matter.

on 16 February 2018

It's not an opinion.
It's a fact that the Playstation 3 was technically superior.

Especially once you start leveraging Iterative Refinement on Cell.

on 17 February 2018

its not a fact, just stop it. if developers can say its not more powerful, that makes it not a fact, your opinion is not fact.

on 17 February 2018

You are throwing allot of assertions out there without knowing all the facts.
How do you know I am not a developer?
How do you know I am not a hardware engineer?

Have you seen my credentials? You can try and assert your logical fallacies all you want, but they are just that.

And I won't just "stop it" this is my wall. I will say whatever I desire within the confines of the sites rules.

If you don't like it. Take a hike.

The Xbox 360 is not as powerful as the Playstation 3. That is a fact. Not opinion. Fact.

The fact I am even having this discussion in 2018 is stupid, it is ludicrous.

on 17 February 2018

what makes your word better then other developers. I really doubt you are developer btw, but yea its not a fact, if it was . a fact people that actually worked with the hardware wouldn't say 360 is better,

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/gamesblog/2006/dec/07/ps3vsxbox360

on 18 February 2018

Hilarious. An article from 2006... A time where developers were still coming to grips with the hardware?

Besides even the article you posted states (And I quote!)
"On paper, PS3 has more raw processing grunt than Xbox 360"

It even goes on to state: "In essence the two systems are actually fairly closely matched in terms of graphics."

And that's just the GPU. Once we start bringing the CPU into the equation, the Playstation 3 beats the Xbox 360.

Oh no. You may have won this debate. /sarcasm.

Come back with something that actually properly backs up your claims or where you can show that you have a low-level understanding of both sets of hardware.

And whether you think I am a developer or not is ultimately irrelevant. I am not obligated to justify myself to appease some random person on the internet... Because to be blunt... I don't give a shit what you or anyone else thinks.

on 18 February 2018

One developer has publicly (although anonymously) stated that Xbox 360 - in games programming terms - is the better machine as the GPU is more powerful, providing greater pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Do you concur at all? Is this really what it all comes down to?

did you miss that part? ro about another developer

https://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion-30/game-developer-states-ps3-is-not-more-powerful-tha-242073/

never mind that the original article blitz games, actually got better results on 360 despite working on the strength of each ssytem

At Blitz our cross platform technology enables us to develop simultaneously for both systems and spend our time playing to the strengths of each.

on 18 February 2018

but you are right one, despite 360 running most games better the whole gen basically, and developers saying 360 is better, ps3 is more powerful is a fact, just laughable , i would bet my house you never worked on any console.

on 18 February 2018

Perhaps if you were comparing the complete platform rather than a specific component you might actually be onto something.

The GPU doesn't do anything without the rest of the system you know.

on 18 February 2018

I'm actually not seeing this cpu advantage, almost every game ran on 360 better, and the most technically demanding cpu wise were open world games, and they all ran on 360 better the whole gen.

on 18 February 2018

You aren't going to convince me otherwise with such a poor argument and even poorer evidence to back it up.

on 18 February 2018

you can think what ever you want the fact remains 360 ran most games better the whole gen, GPU showed a bigger advantage in ports then ps3 cpu, evn when tailored for ps3, 360 handled with no problem, microsoft, the developers, which made those comments early on in the genration where in fact right.

on 18 February 2018

Towards the end of the generation... The games had an advantage on the Playstation 3.

on 19 February 2018

no they didn't even towards the end of the generation most games ran better on 360. it was till rare for a ps3 version to be better, and if it was, it was only slightly.

on 19 February 2018

In your opinion.

on 19 February 2018

i can'r even think of one ps3 game where it had a big advantage against the 360 version, even when ps3 was lead.

on 19 February 2018

Just because you can't think of it... Doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

For example... L.A. NOIRE.

And now you need to ask yourself... Why it's better on Playstation 3.

on 21 February 2018

thats one game, with a very small advantage in frame rate that targeted ps3 to it's best yet 360 handled it well, while ps3 had trouble just hanging with 360 in most ports that didn't even target 360 specifically.

on 21 February 2018

You are missing the point entirely.

on 22 February 2018

what point? that 360 just runs games better period.

on 22 February 2018

The fact I have to essentially spell it out is a little disconcerting.

I'm going away for a few days. So I'll let you think a little harder on this topic.

on 22 February 2018

i already know why it runs better on ps3, it was developed to take advantage of ps3 strengths, but even then 360 handled it pretty damn well, being only slightly worse, there are actual ports that lead on ps3, and 360 has the better versions, 360 was just the better hardware.

on 23 February 2018

Playstation 3 had superior hardware to the Xbox 360. That cannot be disputed.

The Xbox 360 had hardware that was simply easier to work with. That also cannot be disputed.

What that means is that the bulk of multiplatform titles will look and perform better on the Xbox 360.

But games that fully leverage the Playstation 3's hardware will be a step up over anything the Xbox 360 could realistically achieve.

on 26 February 2018

i highly disagree most people will tell you GTAV is most technically impressive game on both, and i'm sure they both max out the hardware, same with a numbers of games. not lets pretend third party games don't max out the hardware, but what ever feel free tot think what you want buddy. you think rockstar games and many thirdparty with huge huge budgets didn't leverage the ps3 as best they could then you are sadly mistaken.

on 26 February 2018

And you are assuming I am ignorant. I'm not.

Many developers try to achieve parity on multiple platforms for various reasons.
Even the PC gets held back by consoles at times.

on 27 February 2018

lol parity, gtav was the only time, rockstar was able to achieve parity usually the ps3 version of games are worse.

on 27 February 2018

and are usually worse by a nice margin.

on 27 February 2018

Are you telling me that rockstar fully tapped out the capabilities of the Playstation 3, even resorting to iterative refinement where possible?

Do you have citations for this that provides low-level information?

Otherwise this conversation is boring and you aren't really adding anything new and just wasting time.

on 27 February 2018

your argument doesn't, make sense, games that are barely running at 30fps on 360/ps3 you dont think developers 'maxed out the hardware in 6-7 years. it actually a miracle they got some those games to run.

on 28 February 2018

I don't even know what you are trying to accomplish at this point.

This is going around in circles. And it's boring.

February is going to be a little different. I've decided to skip the Titan V, for now, and keep most of what I have. The Two Titan Xp's, 64GB DDR4, i9 7920X. I'm only adding the H500P Mesh White Tower, a 2TB SSD, and getting slightly less stacked mobo.



September is where I'll drop some serious cash again, moving to whatever Intel CPU is the fastest (with most cores), 64GB of additional RAM, and, whatever NVIDIA may have that's faster than the Titan Xp and ISN'T the Titan V.

Titan V is so purty. But I personally don't believe it's worth the extra dollarydoo's over a pair of Titan XP's.

I'm going in the opposite direction to you though. I'm going smaller, more energy efficient... And get a massive NAS happening with about 30 Terabytes of storage.

Energy prices are trending towards 50' cents per kwh...
So a 65w CPU and a beefy GPU in an ITX case with a custom water loop is what I am doing right now... And is all I need for 1440P.

Plus my needs have changed, less time on the computer, more time on the dirt bike and the Gym. :)

This year seems to be more iterative improvements rather than big shakeups on the tech front anyway.

2019 could get more interesting as most manufacturers should be on 10nm/7nm by then.

on 27 January 2018

Agreed. 2018 is a "tick" year. With them figuring all of the Spectre stuff out, and GDDR6/DDR5 in the pipeline, the real business (tock) starts with 2019.

on 27 January 2018

Hoping DDR5 brings some big bandwidth gains to be honest... Mostly for the APU gains.

Navi, GDDR6, Zen 2, DDR5, Cascade Lake, Ice Lake... Not sure what nVidia has up it's sleeve.

on 28 January 2018

< CGI-Quality posted something on Pemalite's wall:

Build is complete! Although I'm getting the 7980XE in Feb, I can't lie, while the 7920X is a wonderful chip, me needs them 18 cores! :D

Yeah yeah. Rub it in why don't you? Hahaha

Would love the 7980X, but that is slightly out of my price range. :P

on 08 October 2017

Yeah, outside of major crunch applications, I'll probably feel the burn of that purchase soon after. :P

on 08 October 2017

Here is hoping Coffee Lake makes Intel take a second look at pricing. It's made the 7640x, 7740X and 7800X a bad buy... So there is allot of room for correction in that entire lineup.

on 08 October 2017

At what point do you start buying server chips.
AMD's Epyc 7551P is ~2100 USD, 32 cores, 64 threads (though the clock speeds are not there).

on 11 October 2017

I have actually asked him about Server chips once before. :P

For me though it really depends on price/performance... And usually Xeons aren't always there in that aspect.

Some Opterons have been though... I was running Opteron 152 on Socket 940 back in the day, she was a beast.

In regards to Epyc though, I think CGI prefers Intel chips due to their clockrates and single-threaded capabilities... Plus he will be going for the 18-core chip which AMD doesn't have a real competitor for.

Epyc is certainly a multi-threaded monster though.

Once I retire this rig I will be getting a low-clocked low-powered 10-core Xeon to drop into it to use for a bunch of servers, the chips are coming down in price ($200 AUD) as supply is exceeding demand on this older platform.

on 11 October 2017

I figured as much, though I felt it was still worth mentioning.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming Vega SSG?

on 11 October 2017

It's about time. Only been waiting 12+ months... When it was rumored to use the Fiji chip. Haha

Not a consumer/gamer card though, but she looks impressive.

Waiting on Navi personally... CGI will probably jump over to Volta.

on 11 October 2017

All at a low price of 7000 USD.
Hopefully that is where AMD can recoup Vega's development costs, because it won't be from gaming.

I really want to see where they take the concept in the future; and benchmarks, of course.

on 11 October 2017

Yep, waiting on the first Volta Titan to release, now. No more GPU buys till then.

Oh and server-based PCs will come when my budget allows me to build a monster of that type, as well. :P

on 11 October 2017

< CGI-Quality posted something on Pemalite's wall:

DDR5 in 2019?! You ready?! :D

I was born ready!

Can you imagine the bandwidth on quad-channel, essentially 6400Mhz DDR4-Equivalent Ram?

Integrated graphics will finally be able to handle 1080P gaming.
That is if it is a doubling in bandwidth over DDR4 that is being hinted at, need to wait on the Spec to be fully published by JEDEC which will happen next year.

on 22 September 2017

Then there's the gaming side of things. GDDR6 and HBM2 out in the wild! If NVIDIA has their way, Volta will dictate the outcome (GDDR6)!

on 22 September 2017

HBM2 is already out in the wild. :P
Vega is using it.

Volta might be using HBM2 in the high-end anyway, their roadmaps dating back to 2013 mention it.
Plus: http://wccftech.com/nvidia-volta-gpus-gddr6-memory-due-early-2018/

GDDR6 will likely be for the mid range/upper mid-range cards as it is cheaper, but also slower unless you have a wide memory bus... And GDDR5/5X will be for lower-end devices.

What an era when we get to call GDDR5 low-end. Haha

on 22 September 2017

Oh, I know it's in Vega, I just don't know if it'll become mainstream. For example:

https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/sk-hynix-gddr6-early-2018-nvidia-volta/

https://www.pcgamesn.com/nvidia/nvidia-volta-gddr6-memory

Those guys seem to think Volta will use GDDR6.

These guys, on the other hand:

http://wccftech.com/nvidia-titan-volta-nvlink-hbm2-graphics-card-leak/

Say otherwise. So who knows.

on 22 September 2017

The Volta Titan may use HBM2, but according to some of those readings, GDDR6 will be faster in some cases.

on 22 September 2017

Yeah. GDDR6 can outperform HBM2.
It really depends how wide you wish to take it.

Because if you throw enough memory chips at the problem... DDR1 Ram can beat HBM2 in bandwidth... But it would be stupidly expensive to achieve.

nVidia knows what they are doing though, they will go with whatever provides the best price/performance to their needs.

I mean... Pascal Tesla has HBM memory, because that market can make full use of it.

on 23 September 2017

So someone thinks they'll potentially use DDR5 in next gen consoles. I think that's crazy talk. What say you?

on 23 September 2017

It is certainly crazy talk.

Microsoft learned its lesson from using DDR3.

on 24 September 2017

They based it on the Pool of DDR3 that Sony used in the PS4 (256MB) and Pro (1GB).

I'm trying to tell people - all high speed RAM next gen. DDR is non conventional.

on 24 September 2017

Yeah. If you are gunning for 4k... Which we must assume next-gen is... Using conventional DRAM is a hindrance to that goal.
Bandwidth is king when it comes to rendering.

on 24 September 2017

Exactly.

Slight reduction on the build for Fall 2017 (Feb 2018 stuff remains the same):



- 7920X (12-core) @ 4.3GHz (Turbo Boost 3.0)

- Titan Xp x2

- 64GB DDR4 @ 2400MHz

- Rampage VI Apex



I'll say this, though: AMD has made things MUCH more interesting for me than any year prior when approaching a new build. Then again, if NVIDIA makes the Volta Titans a reality in 2018, the Pendulum swings right back! XD

Oh how will you ever survive with such a rig!? :p
It is clearly beneath you and thus you should donate it to such a lowly peasant like myself. :p

And I agree about AMD. Thread Ripper looks great. Vega not so much... Not at that price anyway!

Keen for the battle between Navi and Volta next year, things could get extremely interesting.

on 31 August 2017

Steeping stones for AMD. I want to see them give Intel a real scare. Then I won't have to drop $2,000 on a damn CPU! :P

on 31 August 2017

*stepping

on 31 August 2017

Well I noticed the 7900X has dropped in price here, but that could be a normal pricing cycle.
Still needs to drop to $1000 AUD before I consider it though.

Coffee lake might make things interesting on the pricing front considering how much performance it's offering compared to some lower-end HEDT chips, Intel might need to re-align it's entire product stack.

on 31 August 2017

After the 7980XE purchase in February, it'll be a good while before I'm in the market for a new proc!

on 31 August 2017

You say that. But you don't mean it! Hahaha

Upgrading is an addiction! :P

on 01 September 2017

It is :P

But really, there's not much I need more than 36 threads for right now! :P

on 01 September 2017

So 36 Instances of Minecraft isn't enough of a temptation? :P

We need the software and most importantly... The games to catch up to these HEDT chips.

on 01 September 2017

Spot on. It stings a little when I think of what I HAVE to do to really see my setup shine. Games lag far behind. With/without 4K involvement!

on 01 September 2017

Exactly! One day I hope. By then you would have moved onto the next best thing anyway. :)

I am still kicking with my SB-E chip, games still aren't pushing it. It's 6 years old.

I can match a stock Ryzen Hex-core chip at around 4.2Ghz. (And I can hit 5ghz)

Stepped away from most programming/development/compute intensive tasks, so I am not screaming out for more CPU performance anymore.
The bank account loves it. ;)

- Rampage VI Extreme



February 2018 Additions:

That is drool worthy.
The 7980XE is priced out of range for most mere mortals, I would not be surprised if it dropped for $3,000 AUD or more for the chip alone here.

Then again... There are people who believe the Earth revolves around the sun, man never set foot on the moon and the Earth is flat.

on 22 April 2017

Pemalite... The Earth DOES revolve around the sun.

on 22 April 2017

I meant it the otherway of course! Haha. Good catch though.

on 22 April 2017

I knew that's what you meant, but couldn't help it. =P

I don't want to move the conversation over here, but no one said that AA is a bad thing. Stop spreading lies, please. It depends on the implementation and if it actually does more good than harm to the quality of the image. It can go both ways, you know?

on 23 April 2017

Plenty of people have said that AA is a bad thing due to the precedent the Nintendo 64 set. No lies are being told here.

Perhaps you should read the thread?

on 23 April 2017

Lol @ Peh.

I will abstain myself from saying more than that. xD

on 23 April 2017

@Pemalite, only StuOhQ implied in such a way. Can't say that one guy counts as "plenty".
@Hynad, if you wanna join the discussion feel free. But that "behind the back" talk and laughing is pretty immature.
"I will abstain myself from saying more than that."

on 23 April 2017

Is it immature to laugh at funny things said by people?

I simply think it's funny how you fit what I described in my first comment here.

on 23 April 2017

You just said "No one said that AA is a bad thing".

Then I proved you wrong.

And then you are like "Only one person said that AA is a bad thing".

Seriously. Do you EVER admit that you are wrong?

on 23 April 2017

@Pemalite, you are slowly starting to get on my nerves, because you deliberately put words in my mouth which I didn't said.
Curl-6 posted "people are saying that no AA is a good thing..." and "A game from their fav company has no AA and suddenly AA is bad?" AA is obviously a wide term, because of different ways of AA. Thus, I replied that no one said that AA is bad and AA can go both ways.
Then you said, that plenty people said it were bad, BECAUSE OF N64

on 23 April 2017

Why would I jump in? Pemalite is more knowledgeable than I am when it comes to this subject. Even though I already knew what he's talking about here. There is nothing I could say that Pemalite hasn't already said, and you argue with him even if you are wrong. Heck, even DF has questioned Nintendo's decision to leave AA out of so many of their games, multiple times, yet here you are giving excuses for them and defending them because hey "it's Nintendo".

I prefer watching this from afar, and enjoy the show you give. For free.

on 23 April 2017

@Hynad, you say that Pemalite knows more about this subject than you do, but you know that I am wrong about it, because you don't know much about the subject, at all. Sounds legit. You have actually no clue what I am arguing about, because like I said, and you also probably have read it, that I don't know why Nintendo hasn't added AA to MK8. But if the result is a blurry image than I take no AA over AA blurryness anytime.
If you don't understand this reasoning, then yes, you better should avoid posting in this thread. Thanks for your input.

on 23 April 2017

There is nothing to understand about your reasoning.

Barely any implementation of AA in modern games add blurriness. You'd have to bring up motion blur for that.

And I said Pemalite knows these things more than I do. Not that I don't know any of it. So while Pemalite can know more about this than I do, I can still know you are wrong. Yes. At the same time. ^_-

on 23 April 2017

@Hynad, Yes, you already said you don't know much about the subject, no need to prove what you said with your argument.
*cough* FXAA *cough*

on 23 April 2017

So you accuse Pemalite of "deliberately putting words in your mouth" and being intellectually dishonest...

Yet there you go, doing the same thing.

Pot calling the kettle black.

on 23 April 2017

@Hynad, by "that" you have to point to what you mean. Otherwise, I don't know what you are up to.

Other than that, just let it go. I don't want to go on posting on his wall. There is a thread for it and I already told you, to go there and post your view there.

on 23 April 2017

If I am getting on your nerves. Then take a hike and leave my wall. I don't care about your personal feelings.
I will simply argue about the various points you bring up and leave it at that, don't like it? Then stiff.

on 23 April 2017

@Pemalite If you want to argue about various points, good. Do it on the thread, then. But what you guys are doing here, by laughing at peoples opinions about the topic at hand and one of you not even having the courage to challenge their views, but prefer to laugh at them is just immature.

What the fuck is wrong with you? I just wanted to argument for my point of view, but you seem to take it personally for some kind of reason going by the tone of yours.
Is that how you want to win an argument? By downplaying your opponent instead of going for the issue at its core? Well, then.

I'm done with that.

on 23 April 2017

We were having a laugh at the thread in general.

You took it personally.

We are also permitted to speak about whatever we want and wherever we want within the confines of the websites rules.

If we wish to talk about what is happening in another thread here.... You bet your ass we will. That doesn't mean the discussion has ended in the thread itself. (Note: It hasn't.)

on 23 April 2017

I think it's fair he is purposefully wasting your time now, Pemalite.

I mean, how more specific can you be, and he is STILL asking you to be more specific. Completely disregarding your examples, or playing dumb, or I don't know what game he's playing...


on 24 April 2017

As they say... You can lead a horse to water. But you can't make it drink.

I'm just going to chalk it up to him trolling to be honest.

on 24 April 2017

Well. That debate was anti-climatic.

Hey man. Going to go back to a wired connection for the PS4 and PS3 and want to ask you something since seem to know everything. :) With a 50mbps download, and 3mbps upload, a Cat5e cable should suffice, no? Sorry for the trouble.

Cat 5e cabling supports 1,000Mbps speeds. So you will be perfectly fine. :)

on 17 April 2017

Ha. Thank you. I did a very quick google search before I posted on your wall and found some conflicting opinion, but no facts. Went to Best Buy, and it was on the packaging label. Derp. Got an Insignia cable. Fun fact; The cable STINKS. The smell even transferred to my fingers.

Could be an oldish cable. Polymers do tend to "sweat". :P

So Honest opinion time do you REALLY think Ryzen will be enough? By enough I mean do you think AMD can finally get back to Profitability or do you think they are too far down the hole to really gain relevancy towards consumers again?



I was a Die Hard AMD fanboy for years and years. I still have AMD GPUs because atleast the GPU dept for AMD has been competitive and Ive hated Nvidia for so long now that i just cant bring myself to jump ship... but damn AMD is taking their sweet time getting this shit out. Had Ryzen and Vega launched 6 - 12 months ago id say they have a chance but at this point my Gut tells me Intel is too well entrenched. I hope im wrong

With current pre-orders and very positive sentiments, leaked benchmarks... And AMD's higher average selling price compared to FX... I am thinking profitability might jump significantly.

Intel won't be releasing new hardware for a good 3-4 months, so AMD can take advantage of that.

Hoping for the best for AMD's sake anyway, we need to keep them around.

on 23 February 2017

I sure hope so. Competition is great thing! Would love to be able to buy an all AMD system again.

on 25 February 2017

Sure is! Competition kept pricing in check and pushed the industry to innovate.

I still have one AMD system left... But my next Motherboard+CPU will be an Intel again in my main system. - I need the extra PCI-E lanes and Memory channels.

Might go for a Ryzen Hex to upgrade my AMD and Core 2 Quad rigs though.

I must be doing something right to essentially be called a fanboy for various console platforms this week... Little do the peasants know... :P

< fatslob-:O posted something on Pemalite's wall:

It's too bad shader model 6 isn't out yet despite being near the end of this year. I might have to actually take a jump at green team if AMD keeps taking a beating cause I don't see much hope on the horizon ...

As someone who has been using AMD GPU's for generations... I'm hearing you!
AMD needs to pull their finger out.

Hopefully Vega isn't garbage.

on 21 December 2016

Vega can only compete with Nvidia's best in DX12 and even then I don't expect them to take the crown. I really wish that Microsoft had enough foresight to quickly adopt many of the innovations seen in console shading languages otherwise we wouldn't be seeing AMD like this ... (had Microsoft been aggressive in standardizing the shading language it would've been somewhat of a throwback to the days of GeForce FX vs R300 in shader model 2)

on 21 December 2016

I think the FX was probably the largest dissapointment in GPU history. Other than the Radeon 2000 series.


Vega should be able to beat the Geforce 1080, especially at high resolutions where HBM can let the chip breathe.

on 21 December 2016

Vega 10 vs GP104 is probably going to be a wash in DX11 if the demo performance in Doom holds. I only expect it to beat the GP104 in the best case scenario like DX12 with shader model 6 and Vulkan with SPIR-V cause otherwise I expect lot's of difficulties for Vega ...

on 22 December 2016

I think I will be content even if it had less performance than GP104 in Direct X 11 and earlier API's.
As long as it's "good enough" in those benchies. (Which one must assume it will be.)

It's Direct X 12 performance that will be more important to me going forwards, I am trying to move away from yearly upgrades and taking a longer approach, all future games should be Direct X 12 and Vulkan powered.
Getting rid of my Eyefinity set-up was the first step with that.

The real interesting part is what happens with Volta and Navi.
It is the second generation 16/14nm GPU's which should see die sizes explode.

Hi Pemalite. Why do you pursure with Sony and Nintendo discussion? You said " I am a PC Master Race". But I think true PC gamer don't care sony and nintendo. Even if you're a xbox fan . Your behavior is shameless.

I'm not an Xbox fan. I often criticize the Xbox One for being under powered. (Which it is.)

And I often give Sony and Nintendo praise when praise is due for various aspects. (Like the PS3 with it's Media capabilities vs the 360.)

Most of the threads though are talking about Sony or Nintendo as that is where the current news-cycles lay, so of course that is where my opinion will be targeted at.

To sum it up, I dislike all consoles equally, but on the bright side at-least you know I am not blind/fanboy to any of the platforms. ;)

It's game over for AMD as far as GPUs go. DX12 isn't going to save them and Vega is going to be a massive disappointment when it doesn't reach the performance crown. Green team it is for me since I want the best so off I go with the new Titan X ... :)

Green team isn't going to support GPU configurations greater than 2x though. :(

Plus the Geforce 1000 series is expensive.

But you are right, I very much doubt Vega is going to be taking the Titan X down a notch... But with low expectations from AMD... It should be easier for AMD to exceed them. :P

on 23 July 2016

Meh, nobody gives a damn about multi-GPU when it usually gives frametime issues and practically no devs outside of the small portion of AAA devs care to implement the feature ...

Nvidia is expensive but the same applies to other high end brands so I'm willing to fork out cash to get the best experience ...
