Forum Topic "Fix my Frankenstein build"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 22 days ago

Computex is where all the big name companies like AMD, Intel and NVidia will be announcing anything they have. But that's on May 28 and they usually just announce a product, scheduling for it to be releases a couple months later. You're looking at either buying now or waiting 2 months to see if you want to wait another couple months for a new product.

Forum Topic "Radeon VII"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 2 points 2 months ago

In some memory heavy applications the Radeon VII can beat the 2080 TI but in gaming, it consistently sits in between an RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. I think the card has its place in the market as an alternative to NVidia's offerings but the features of the Radeon VII simply lack in comparison to NVidia's ray-tracing and DLSS.

Do keep in mind that this is just a MI50 rebrand and not AMD's real response to NVidia's RTX 2000 series. This card is nothing more than a failed MI50 trying to reduce losses. But in the end, something is better than nothing and while I would probably recommend the RTX 2080 over this for pure gaming people who have memory intensive workloads can see huge benefits from the Radeon VII.

So I was scammed then? The seller said it was a Vega 64 and I deliberately asked him if it had been bios flashed.

Forum Topic "Enough power to overcloak"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 3 months ago

If you're really are going to overcloak you're CPU I should warn you that this process is know for making GPU's invisible. The performance will be great and if you are looking to do a pirate build the overcloaked CPU should really pull together the mysterious theme. /s

Forum Topic "RX580 or NVIDIA 1060 based on new freesync support?"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 3 months ago

Nvidia is starting to support freesync but it doesn't work with many monitors. The 580 is also cheaper and performs within 1-2% of the gtx 1060 6gb. Also buying based on power and heat is a bit ridiculous in my opinion if you aren't doing a small form factor build.

Forum Topic "1,850 to 2,000 Euro - Mini Form/ Portable - Gaming/ Streaming/ Future Proof PC - 1440p / 165 Frames / Medium to High Quality"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 3 months ago

Is 32gb really needed or I can go away with 16gb as well?

You could get away with 16 gb but if you bought a 2x8gb kit you would be locked onto 16gb unless you by a whole new kit.

Would the extra money be worth it for the 9700k?

The 9700k won't perform as close to the 2700x when in this form factor due to thermal limitations.

Is there anything that I need to be cautious about between a Mini ITX Motherboard/ Build compared to a bigger size/ normal build? are there any limitations to these small systems?

Smaller system usually have thermal issues but if you make sure the air holes for the components aren't on the floor it should be fine.

Forum Topic "Am I getting a good deal?"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 2 points 3 months ago

On average the 390x is just a little behind the rx 580. However I would consider going for a used rx 570 or rx 580 as it is a newer card around the same priced when used.

Forum Topic "Is this legit?"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 4 months ago

1070 ti is over a year old now so $335 isn't out of the ball park. Also looking at sold listings it isn't at all uncommon to see a 1070 ti sold for around 300$ so I think you're good. The seller seems to be of good standing and isn't a new account so I would go for it.

Forum Topic "Navi CPUs ?"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 3 points 4 months ago

Navi is the code name for AMD's upcoming graphics chip. Zen 2 is for the new AMD CPUs. The key word you have in your topic is "Supposedly" as in no one really knows what the specs are for the newest AMD product. I would wait until benchmarks or at the very least wait until AMD comes out with concrete information reguarding their release of Zen 2.

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 4 months ago

Is it possible?

Nope. Very, very few laptops offer GPU upgrades and when they do they are about $300 more than a desktop version of the card. For example, the Alienware 17 has an option to upgrade to a GTX 1060 for $579.

Like are both cards going to be plugged into the motherboard at the same time? If so you can't have 2 different GPUs running at the same time except for specific situations like a PhysX card.

Forum Topic "Radeon RX580"

Depends on the model of the card and its price compared to the gtx 1060 6 gb.

Forum Topic "1700x or 2700x for Vega Build?"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 5 months ago

The $150 price difference only goes down to $120 between the 1700x and 2700x in a MicroCenter. I would still strongly suggest you go with the 1700x and put $150 dollars towards something like a larger ssd or better vega gpu.

Yeah DDR4 is expensive but it is going down slowly. Just wait for deals on it.

I don't think you want the AM3 platform. It is dead and has been for a while. I would recommend saving up a bit more and being able to jump up to the AM4 platform or z370 platform.

Forum Topic "1700x or 2700x for Vega Build?"

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 1 point 5 months ago

1700x is going for 149.99 on newegg brand new while the 2700x is going for 309.99. The Ryzen 2000 series is really just a clock boosted 1000 series with some memory tuning so spending an extra $160 isn't really worth it. The $160 dollars should really go towards a better vega card or large SSD.
