    Just be *really* careful when taking your macbook over to Apple if you do it before taking a backup of your data. Their policy is to nuke your data from orbit. Also, even if Louis can't help, also try iPad Rehab.

    Frankly, I'm not surprised about the whole RDR2 thing. Rockstar has been all about showing off their ostentatious wealth via graphics tech and shoveling in "realism" at the sacrifice of fun. For instance. Having a hearing range radius for your horse seems logical on paper, but... Does it make the game more fun to have to trundle through a forest or whatever, without a single chuffing idea where your horse wandered off to? I wouldn't say so. Or, that whole mess that the hunting system is...oof. As a counter example, I have many issues with Ubisoft, but... You can leave your horse across the map in the recent AssCreed games, whistle for it, and it's there within seconds to take you to fun content. Or, Far Cry with its hunting. Find an animal, shoot it, a two second animation to skin it, and you're done. Now, back to the fun content. It doesn't need to take sixty hours in the game, just because it takes that long in real life.

    I wonder if the RX5500 being PCIe 4.0 is important because of being able to use half the PCIe lanes thanks to the increased thoroughput. Thus...say, future low-end mobile parts can have a mere 16 lanes of PCIe, but since it's 4.0, still have enough for a full-on RX5500, a M.2 drive, and...I don't know, something else they might use PCIe for in a laptop.

    I really think the RTX 2070 super is a great value with the performance and all the features that come with it. And all the features that it comes with are valid and useful. Even the ray tracing cores. We have seen it in action and it works great. But I wish that they pushed the performance to match the RTX 2080. I think it comes up just short about 5% or so. Most of the cards you can overclock to get a 10% performance boost. Maybe the black editions don't get much.

  • Game Cooker US Rocks VR

    16 gigabytes of RAM for the game is just the recommended. probably those entitled individuals that want to turn their graphics all the way up to ultra and play at 4k. Oh wait, that's me. 😜 I'm certainly not entitled though. I'm poor as a bone. I'm just a good deal shopper.

    Well Intel was in a CPU shortage last year and that would drive prices up. Now a little late but they have ramped up production and can probably sell cheaper. I don't think Intel didn't want to be competitive. They were caught up with problems frim their own success. Now they have to be agressive to make a show of hand. I am okay with that. It's here now and we should be happy. Everybody who was complaining got what they wanted. Intel lowered their prices significantly. I have an x 299 bored so I'm quite happy that I might be able to upgrade to a 14 core from an 8-core. 😃

    RGB “is not cheap technology”. It really is. It’s literally pennies. The markup is astronomical. Like thousands of percent. Also am I alone in just not giving a shit about mobile CPUs? I haven’t cared about any of these claims Intel have made about their 10th gen laptop stuff. Games with high variance from run to run are why you average over lots of runs. If three runs averages aren’t representative, try five or ten, and crucially give the standard deviation. There’s a reason why GamersNexus’s graphs have error margins on their graphs.

    Man, Josh has a point. Chiplets allow for the best bins to shift between SKUs so perfectly; why release a perfect chiplet in a lower margin SKU when you can use 4 of those to make at least twice the profit. Because let's be honest, 12/24 is still more than what so many people would need for the next 3-4 years as a great upgrade period. I am still on 6/12, just upgrading now, with barely a need after 6 years on the 4930k - it is still good enough but the motherboard is letting go, so might as well get a 3900x. The market doesn't need 3950x that much, it's a halo product in the mainstream anyway, the real halo is the Threadripper after all and AMD still is a tiny company competing with Intel, they need all the extra cash they can get right now.

After watching this I feel a lot more comfortable knowing what I need to research rather than waste my time falling for gimmicks and buying expensive brand names. Thanks for the tutorial, the series, the patience, and professionalism of your video. The internet needs more of this type of educational content.

    The prices and supply of 5700 XT is still problematic in Europe (Netherlands). The reference-card used to cost €410, the Sapphire Pulse still costs €480, the Asus Strix €550, the Sapphire Nitro €524, the Red Devil costs €500 on paper but if you order one you might or might not get one after 2-4 weeks of waiting. Yes, that is a thing here: you pay, you wait 4 weeks, you still don't get it, you cancel your order and get your money back. :/ I don't know what is going on with Powercolor but in the whole Netherlands there are two shops that offer it, one for only business to business (exorbitant prices if you want to order one product, discounts if you order a lot) and one which doesn't even want to give a delivery time because it is that bad. Almost 3 months after the paper launch of the 5700 XT we still can't buy a Red Devil and that in the heart of Europe which pretty much is the distribution center (harbor/port of Rotterdam) of all of Europe. For completeness sake the other prices. Gigabyte Gaming OC for €460, the MSI Evoke and Gaming OC for €460, the XFX THICC for €480, the ASRock Challenger (still not reviewed by any media, a bad sign) for €458. None of these cards is worth the money. The reader might not know the value of the € etcetera, that is why I gave the price of the reference card, as a point of reference, that costs 10 more in € than the MSRP in USD. You can easily calculate how much we pay too much. :/ I hate it, but I will have to wait even longer, after 3 months of waiting after 3 years of waiting. I was planning to buy a monitor instead for now but the LG 27GL850 still isn't available either. Feel our pain, PC Perspective, and play the world's smallest violin for our small first world problem. ;)

    • Game Cooker US Rocks VR
      Game Cooker US Rocks VR 23 days ago

      @Peter Jansen Well you have a good argument there. I tend to forget that we have more options here in America and our pricing is a bit different. price is important but not the most important thing to me. I always try to get the highest performance I can get. And I always look at who has more features. Future proof and otherwise. People are going to go spend a half $1,000 on an AMD card and then in a year AMD might bring out a card with Ray Tracing and say by this card now for ray tracing. I think there's going to be a lot of disappointed AMD customers down the road. God bless America. God bless Europe too. ☺️😀

    • Peter Jansen
      Peter Jansen 23 days ago

      @Game Cooker US Rocks VR You need to consider different brands for AMD than for Nvidia. In general MSI and GIgabyte are quite bad for AMD-cards, they make MUCH better Nvidia cards and they speculate that customers are dumb enough to choose MSI and Gigabyte based on their perceived quality for Nvidia-cards and their name-recognition (marketing). On a local forum I have corresponded with the head of MSI marketing for Europe, I know a bit about what is going on. He literally said that it has to do with selling a much smaller volume for AMD, perfectly in line with what that Indian MSI employee tweeted. ASUS does have good AMD cards but in the case of ASUS you pay for it! Sapphire has good cards and a reasonable MSRP but often the supply is a mess, especially in the first months, and that is what we see now. The reference card costs €410, the Sapphire Pulse €480. A €70 difference while the MSRP of the reference card is $400 and the MSRP of the Sapphire Pulse is $410. A clear case of price-gouging of shops facilitated by a lack of supply. Red Devil is pretty solid but we can't buy one yet. This is quite a bad situation for AMD here and AMD itself is responsible for this, they could put a good cooler on it and supply many more samples of it to the shops as they do for their CPU's, instead AMD keeps leaning on the AIB-partners which keep screwing up either with the quality (MSI and Gigabyte) or the supply (Powercolor and Sapphire). The simple fact is that I could buy an RTX 2070 'Super' with open fans for the same price as a good model of the 5700 XT, that is not competitively priced and we (in Europe) saw it coming: $50 extra for the MSRP and then a $50 fee because of a lack of supply and price-fixing. That is why we were so upset about the MSRP! That and because AMD comes a year late to the party. I agree with that "just wait" being AMD's new motto. I get tired from it. The only reason why I haven't bought an RTX card yets is because I thoroughly hate Nvidia its anti-gaming practices (PhysX via x87, Gameworks including the early stage when it wasn't called Gameworks yet, GPP). I don't like AMD but I simply am done with Nvidia. Frankly, I don't think (my speculation) that the 'shortage' of that 7 nm production process has anything to do with it though it is possible. I would expect that TSMC and AMD have signed a contract in 2018 or early 2019 in which they agreed upon a certain volume. It is possible that the agreed volume is too small but I would expect TSMC to be flexible with regard to existing products and put the brakes on new products (like a 5800 XT in the case of AMD). Just my 2 cents. Those supply-issues are nothing new, we have seen it before, the shortage during that 'mining'-hype hit Europe much harder and much earlier than Northern America. There seem to be supply issues in general for AMD.

    • Game Cooker US Rocks VR
      Game Cooker US Rocks VR 23 days ago

      I am not really that impressed with the AMD cards. I'd buy an Nvidia card right now before AMD. I'm not really that impressed with the 5700 cards. They adequate cards yes but I would still rather have a card with more features. If I'm going to spend $450 on a card then spending an extra 80 bucks is not really big deal. I'm sure you already heard that there's a shortage on the 7nm process. Certain hardware that counts on 7nn might be backordered 3 to 6 months. All the hype and everyone has to wait yet more time. That stinks. AMD new motto,"Just wait!". 😏

    Image sharpening for the Radeon cards is not really all that. You guys should do a real test starting a 4K and dropping it by 35 or 40% then turn on image sharpening and see how it looks. And also see how it changes the fps and whether it's worth it to enable. Dropping resolution by 10% is really nothing. Lol

      Peter Jansen 23 days ago

      @Krydolph Other than the supply problems I pointed out that there are no budget models of the 5700 XT in the Netherlands, other than that horrible reference card, and that a noisy card is not an option when you game with open headphones (HD 700 for me). I also pointed out that people got upset about the MSRP because people knew that the street-price would be higher than the MSRP, more so than for Nvidia.

    • Peter Jansen
      Peter Jansen 23 days ago

      @Krydolph In Scandinavia it a lot less bad than in the BeNeLux. I have this straight from the head of marketing for Europe of MSI. The Scandinavian market is bigger, they get a higher priority when there is a shortage of cards. They come a bit after Germany and England but far before the Netherlands. You can compare it yourself if you want, go to tweakers<dot>net and click on pricewatch, enter "5700 xt" and sort (sorteer) on price, you see all the prices of all the shops (not many). Here it is €550 for the Strix, €500 for the Red Devil and €530 for the Nitro. I will have to wait it out a few months, see what happens. It effectively means that you pay the same but get to the product a lot later, or you get ripped off. Both suck. (with regard to the length of the post, I can do fast-reading, because of that I have a difference sense of what is too long)

    • Krydolph
      Krydolph 23 days ago

      @Peter Jansen Well... I don't want to get into a huge argument here, and I be honest. I only skimmed your post, its very long. But since a lot of your arguments are "I am not from USA and we cant get it in EU" I just want to say that I am from Denmark. And I had the Red devil for a few weeks now. And sure, they are more expensive than in the USA, but guess what, so is Nvidias cards. And the price premium for partner cards are honestly higher than I like, but my old GPU was on its last legs with a broken fan and the other just about to die, so I payed the extra money. it was still about the same price as a 2060super, even though they are a lot more expensive than in US. Strix was not an option, because while I think the extra price for the red devil I bought was honestly a bit too much, it was double extra for the strix. To the point where I could start looking at the cheaper 2070's for around the same price.

    • Peter Jansen
      Peter Jansen 23 days ago

      ​@Krydolph First of all, I just pointed out that I can't order a Red Devil if I want to, it is not deliverable where I live! Here in Europe we still have country-borders - when the elite profits from it - and most German shops don't deliver to other countries. Importing it from the USA? Good luck with the additional fees for shipping and the customs 'service'. If I pay €500 I might get a Red Devil after a month, I might not. It happened to a lot of people who ordered one! When a shop doesn't even give an expected delivery time and that shop is the only shop which sells the Red Devil at all then you know how bad the supply is! For the Nitro it is not much better, a handfull of shops and mostly unreliable (we have a lot of those, I was the victim of a bankruptcy of a shop once) or a business-to-business shop. For any Nvidia card of the current generation I can order it at over 20 shops. The price still ist €50-100 too high, I am willing to pay €450 for a Red Devil 5700 XT, not €500. Once again, the Red Devil is not bad but it is not the best card! It is one of the three good cards for the 5700 XT together with the Strix and the Nitro. The worst cards are the ones from MSI, as usual (just compare the noise level and RPM for AMD-cards and equivalent Nvidia-cards of MSI). The cards from Gigabyte and the Sapphire Pulse are mediocre at bast, those heatsinks are rather underwhelming and the cards get rather noisy (not nearly as bad as with the blower cooler but that is a very low bar). The card from ASRock is probably bad, otherwise they would have sent samples to reviewers, they did not! There only are 3 good cards of the 5700 XT and two are deliverable for €530-550. That is way too expensive for a 5700 XT with a 250 mm² die. This is the reason why so many of us got upset about the ridiculously high MSRP for a card with this tiny (€200-250 class card) GPU. For the aftermarket cards you can add another €50 and then you get another €50 European-shop-price-fixing-fee on top of that. Basically AMD still is not an option for graphics cards in this segment in most of the world. AMD needs to fix its supply-problems, it is garbage! Do you need that premium model? It depends on how much noise you tolerate and how much performance you want. I game with open headphones (HD 700), I don't want a noisy graphics card! Also I don't want to reward Gigabyte, MSI or XFX (thick heatsink but a horrible fan-profile and not that well designed compared to the three good cards) for a half-ass job and reward shops for their price-fixing. I will buy a 5700 XT once the price of one of the good models becomes around €460, what it should cost! At the very least I will wait until around 20 shops sell these three cards, then maybe the price-fixing will end.

    • Krydolph
      Krydolph 23 days ago

      ​ Peter Jansen Well, if you want one, you have to order it. The shops do get them in, but they sell out so fast, you really only get them if you have put in a order so you are in "que" waiting for them. But lets be honest, there isn't really any need for the red devil or the strix. The performance gains, even over the refrence is so small, its almost not worth mentioning. When I go in and see now, I see partner cards for almost the same money as the refrence. They don't have all the smart names, and they don't give the companies enough money that they bother sending them out to reviewers. But I bet they are more than enough to handle the load. At least I see powercolor has one that os about the same price as the refrence, it has no fanzy name other than 5700XT, but it has dual axial fans.

    a pc guy that uses a mac. then it dies. obviously you chose the wrong platform. just use a pc. macs can't design for shit. oh and you wanna get it fixed cheaply and no ifs and no buts? go to louis rossman. check his youtube channel. he's the one guy i would get apple shit fixed. i wouldn't even go to a genius bar for that shit. never ever.

    Does the Trixx functionality works on window 7?

      Why wouldn't it? It is just software, the graphics card works fine on Windows7 so the software does too unless the developer doesn't support it to cut costs. :) (I don't think that there is much difference between the W7 and W10 version of this software, unless MS did dumb things which certainly is possible) I can't see Sapphire lock out a large percentage of their customers by not supporting their software for W7.

    Maybe I can explain something about AMD fans people do not understand. AMD fans tend to be quite paranoid. I am willing to add myself to that. But why? I think too many people have forgotten what Intel did during the Athlon days. The evil tactics they employed basically killed AMD. They got a slap on the wrist and the CEO even said that he would do it again. It is a company that used evil illegal tactics to bankrupt AMD. And guess what? Intel recently did it again. They employed a company to spread false rumors about AMD stock in Israel. They paid another company to do very shady benchmarks and then called it an independent third party. There are rumors that they are still paying OEM's not to sell AMD products and the market reflects these rumors. OEM's only launches lack luster AMD products, especially notebooks. Then PC Per happened. If you think Ryan was innocent, think again. At one stage I just stopped following PC Per. Strangely, now that Ryan has gone, things are better at PC Per. Why is that? And why do you defend what he did? It was for sure a conflict of interest. I do not even understand why you feel the need to defend him. It actually concerns me a bit. You guys do not even realise how many subscriptions you lost by this whole affair. Intel also hired Kyle from Hard OCP, killing a web site that was on the for front of exposing Intel's lies and you still want to blame us for being paranoid? Do I worship AMD? No, but I will never support an evil company like Intel, unless they repair what they have done, which they never will. Maybe ARM will be a better option or more likely Risc V. Which ever, Intel will not get my money. Yet people don't have a problem to reward Intel's devious tactics by buying their products. Well, just don't complain when they again give you a decade of quad cores. They have so much money that they will probably succeed. It is your choice though if you want to be part of this.

      May I just add, my favorite presenters at PC Per are Josh and Jeremy. Just one question to Josh. There is a box behind you with "Ripper" written on it. It has been there for more than a year, not moving an inch. How do you manage that?

    • Johnny Steyn - Real Animation
      Johnny Steyn - Real Animation 26 days ago

      So yes, maybe we tend to be over paranoid and maybe we might blame the wrong people at times, but please understand, we are extremely (keeping myself in check not to swear here) unhappy about the last 20 years of evil. I remember when I sold my first 1GHz Athlon. I could not get a motherboard. Asus made one, but Intel was unhappy about it. So Asus distributed it under the table in a white unmarked box. Zero OEM's supported AMD. So maybe Ryan was not guilty and then I ask for forgiveness. We do have a saying in Afrikaans though, if you mix yourself with the pig food, the pigs will eat you.

    Jim (AdoredTV) didn't call you guys a shill, just pointed out a conflict of interest. That, at the time, really was a conflict of interest.

    • Jim Tanous
      Jim Tanous 27 days ago

      Yes, and as I hope I conveyed, we agree that it should have been disclosed. The reference to the "shill" accusations was the result of many in AdoredTV's audience taking that position and frequently, often rudely, sharing it with us, unfortunately even long after everyone involved in Shrout Research has left. None of us who remain with the site were ever even associated with Shrout Research since Ryan operated it separately from PCPer. Allyn and Ken both worked on it to various degrees, but they're also gone.

    Yep. Well... You basically said what I had said in a different comment, but... Whatever. The point still stands. AMD has absolutely wonderful chips that are good at so many things and are a great value for their price. But, they still shouldn't mis-represent their products in marketing.

  • ShroudedWolf51
    ShroudedWolf51 Month ago

    Here's the thing, though. I agree that the numbers themselves are irrelevant and what really matters is if it's able to deliver the performance that is promised or not. At the end of the day, that really is what matters. That said, if their marketing states that this chip will reach a certain speed, it damn well better reach that speed. After all, they marketed that product as running at that speed. They are absolutely wonderful chips and are well worth buying. That said, this is still an important cautionary tale to AMD, Intel, NVidia, and everyone else to not lie in their marketing.

    This boost issue doesn't change my plans to build a Zen 2 PC in early 2020, but I also don't think AMD shouldn't get free pass if they dont't hit advertised clock and actually maintain them for a reasonable period. Had Roman not done his poll and made his video we probably wouldn't have this fix right now.

      Jim Tanous it would be interesting to see what apple wants to fix it and if they will say that they can’t save your data like they normally do and then Louis shows how it’s rubbish.

    • Jim Tanous
      Jim Tanous Month ago

      Indeed, that man is a treasure. I'm still waiting to see if Apple will cover the repair cost since it's just out of warranty, but I'll definitely reach out to Louis if that approach fails. I'd much rather give even the full Apple-calculated cost of the repair to someone like him than to Apple itself at this point.

    @PC Perspective I think it would be best not to care about people who still accuse you of shilling, ignore it, focus on the others and don't address it anymore. That is my advice. As I remember it AdoredTV had two points of criticism: not disclosing the consultancy business and not editing old articles when there is new relevant information (LFC for FreeSync). I agree with that criticism on itself but it is not an issue anymore, it is time that people let it go. For what it is worth, I think that I am a pretty good judge of character, I don't doubt for a second that you guys are honest. Especially Jim. More in general (not about PC Perspecitve but about the community), though I can't exclude the possibility of shilling happening I think that a much bigger factor is that people have biases. Just how you get approached by PR/marketing people of companies, the mails you get, the people you speak, the colored information you get from these channels...A good example is how Intel tried to push this "real world usage" narrative and this the day before Zen2 got introduced in more detail at Computex. I think that the media-outlets handled this quite well (only briefly mentioning it and not letting it become the main story, justified criticism) but I can imagine that it is not easy to prevent getting manipulated, you need to be on your guard. Several of these outlets did mention that Intel itself pushed these outlets to use Cinebench as an indicator of performance (kudos for that). These outlets did miss two elements in my opinion: Cinebench is real world performance (tile-based rendering is being used a lot) and Intel got its data from laptops and 2 in 1 computers. I didn't know the last point myself until recently though I am not surprised. Just a minor point of criticism, the outlets saw it for what it wass: distracting from the Zen2 news and trying to set the narrative. Ryan Shrout has a lot of work to fix that Intel PR, my advice to him would be to just be completely honest, not do any spinning and finally get through his colleagues their thick skulls that they need to segment less (HT/boost) and lower the damn prices. AMD competes well, the platform has some rough edges but even without memory tweaking the performance is good enough that people don't spend $150 extra to get a 9900k instead of a 3700X etcetera. People are aware that they get more added performance with a better graphics card, a better monitor, faster storage, faster/more RAM, better sound or upgrading the CPU earlier in the future. I would guess that Ryan knows this damn well but has to deal with limitations caused by Intel 'needing' those high profit margins (shareholders, preventing having to shrink the company and cut off branches...). We have seen this before with AMD when they got a lot of money, they expanded too much too fast, lost focus and only when they had no other choice (forced by an unfortunate guess (FX) and Intel its marketing-shenanigans) they shrunked down and focused on their core-business and they came back.

      Yes, AMD did make quite a few mistakes, but maybe you chose to forget that the main reason AMD went down, was illegal bribing activities of Intel. If AMD made more money, they would be able to more easily correct their mistakes. They were killed by Intel.

      Not a bad idea. It's about a month out of warranty so I'm going to give Apple a chance to cover the repair but if they insist on charging me, I'd rather give my money to our favorite soldering expert.
