DLSS is great, im probably too old to see the "drawback" vs native 4k in motion but my ears notice the fans not going fully overdrive

In screenshots maybe, but I doubt most of us are really able to notice the difference while actually playing the game.

DLSS has some minor disadvantages and some minor advantages in comparison to native resolution.

Especially in motion, the advantages predominate in most games... you lose a bit of sharpness, but you also lose annoying jaggies and aliasing.



[Rumour] Latest AMD CPU Roadmap

https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/mjst0p/latest_amd_cpu_roadmap/

There's some additional "leak" about RDNA 3 as well. Take it with a grain of salt:

"RDNA3: Q3 2022

  • Official roadmap: 50% better performance/watt

  • Actual improvement: better than 50%"

Now the biggest question for me is how it does with Ray Tracing as well as how good is AMD's Super Resolution. We have been seeing quite a number of Major Titles having Ray Tracing support over the past year and it will continue to grow. And thanks to how easy it is to integrate DLSS, quite a number of Ray Tracing and Raster only games are getting it too. Hopefully AMD has major advances in both because Ray Tracing Ultra makes Raster Ultra look like Medium while DLSS helps quite a lot with maintaining it's performance at reasonable framrates. AMD needs a counter to Nvidia's One Two Punch!

LG to close mobile phone business worldwide

Realistically, I expect many other phone companies to also start shutting down in the future. I think in the Android space, the only ones that will remain are Samsung, Google and Chinese phone companies.

I don't trust leaked roadmaps with colored Excel cells, question marks and Windows paint corrections.

Lol that's true. I accidentally linked the wrong one.

Here's the correct one:

Did we knew about Zen3+?

Thanks. I was sure if I had missed the reveal somehow. I don't think it will take long to find out if it's real or not, but it wouldn't be a bad move from AMD. An extra AM4 upgrade for those that want, squeezing a bit more performance with a new node and some refinements while leaving Intel to deal with the problem of the first wave of DDR5 memory modules.

Then, once Apple has moved to 3nm, go with Zen4 and everything to try to raise the bar again.

By the way, now it's AMD that has problems with Spectre: https://wccftech.com/amd-zen-3-cpu-facing-spectre-like-vulnerabilities/

Yea pretty much. Zen 4 is looking like 2022 and AMD has had a new cpu every year since Ryzen so I can see them coming out with something.

It was a bit to be expected; unless Zen 4 were slated for early 2022 they would need a filler CPU, if only to appease the OEMs. An optimized Vermeer with a slight speedbump and potentially a fix for that spectre-like breach would certainly do very well in that regard.

Also, if the next APUs would come too early for Zen 4, using Zen3+ would definitely make sense here, too. Especially considering how well Zen 2 already was and any additional performance with Zen 3 will already be a very tough pill to swallow for Intel, so having some Zen 3 filler would not hurt AMD either - unless Alder lake is coming with such a huge perf/watt increase that it makes Renoir look old and weak , which I very much doubt
