“Nvidia has announced that they’ve secretly tested over 400 monitors with Adaptive-Sync and Variable Refresh Rate technologies, and they’ve found 12 that qualify to be G-Sync certified. Amusingly, quite a few of these are actually cheaper FreeSync variants of G-Sync panels released by the same manufacturer. They say they’ve still got 150 monitors to go, and they’ll check any new ones released.”

“Nvidia has announced a new, mid-range RTX 2060 GPU. According to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, the RTX 2060 will offer higher performance than a 1070 Ti, and 60 percent faster than the GTX 1060, ushering in “next-gen gaming for tens of millions of gamers.” The company claims the card can run Battlefield V with ray-tracing at 60 frames per second at high settings, 1440p resolution, assuming you’ve got a fast Core i9 processor. Cost just $349”

AMD better improve the drivers for Ryzen Mobile 2000’s as well as the 3000’s at least. I would be very upset if they leave us Ryzen Mobile 2000’s users hanging this soon because I can’t spend another $600+ on a laptop, just I can’t. I mean if I did I wouldn’t buy AMD APUs in a laptop ever again.

The R5 2500U debuted in November 2017 so it’s not a very outdated APU at all. Imagine if the RX 470 stopped getting support when the RX 570 launched.

AMD talked about driver support. On mobile. Otherwise would quote from the article.

The Article shows:

The updated driver stack and driver package will cover all Ryzen Mobile CPUs, both first generation and second generation (and Athlons), which also makes it easier for users who already have a Ryzen APU device to update. AMD promises that this driver set will be getting frequent updates, much like its driver set for desktop discrete graphics cards.

Well it says first gen Ryzen APUs as well, let’s see if it happens (probably will).

As far as I know though, that all applies to Windows, Linux is a different story. I hope that if the driver support does come to fruition that maybe it will help run Linux with stability.


Look at that motherboard monster linux workstation coming soon @wendell?

Also that 43 inch 4k monitor hdr, freesync 2, and 120hz. Holy moly who would have thought we’d see they day when we would see high resolution, high refresh rate

Interesting teardown of RTX 2080TI, wonder how asus designed it with GPU sag in mind


Q500L looks promising, ATX support in what looks like a microatx size case

Pretty sweet innovation but lordy… 1800 dollars retail I’m thinking? Maybe 2000 when it comes out and it “drops” to 1800.

Also how are you going to service the cooling fluid? Hopefully something easy is added because this card will require maintenance. And you have to figure there is going to be some type of support needed being a triple slot, 10 to 15 pound card.


Lisa is looking like a snack in leather :smirk:


So I completely missed the first 50 minutes of the amd keynote, due to meetings. Is there gonna be a recording available or does someone have a summary?

yeah totally. I bet its gonna be on youtube after its done, around ~20 minutes or so. If not in the evening it will be online.


You didn’t miss much. 90% of it was filler.

But 7nm Vega that can game at 4k with ultra high settings.

Well… Radeon VII aka Vega on 7nm with 16GB HBM2… so…


So no cpu announcements?

Not yet.

well… mobile apus earlier this week… sorta kinda but nothing serious for HEDT
