    Integrated = CPU and GPU in the same die aka APU.

    If there's one thing I concluded from this episode it's that it is indeed Friday (also something about AMD and Intel working together, but that's minor :P)

    They showed a performance chart and the first chips are 4 gig HBM2 N Polaris… It's Basically like RX480/580 Performance..

    It's 2018, NO ONE GOES on Sabbatical, or gets Laid Off anymore.. He was Fired, all be it amicably and in a nice way, BUT Raja was never going back to AMD in the first place.. He got a new job after being fired..

    isn't their a mac pro with Vega in it coming at the end of the year. I thought a former apple guy created vega. Gordon children has a steam machine. 🙂 Ba Zing 🙂

    Vega has infini fabric. AMD would not want to give intel that ip.

    Raja is at Intel to make sure this chipset works and are likely to do more if this is successful. I think this whole deal was planned out big win for amd and Intel chip.

    Not certain who said the definition between integrated and discreet was based on performance – wasn't me as the reading of chat made it sound. I was just agreeing with Gordon; Intel's iGPU (integrated graphics) is a part of the same die as the CPU. Not only is this Intel + Radeon combo going to provide discreet level graphics performance, it'll technically not be "integrated" in the sense we're familiar with – i.e. an iGPU on the same die – so I'd call it discreet. Also consider Intel may very well keep their iGPU for low power graphic tasks, further adding to that being the "integrated" graphics with that package.

    Gordon is no older than me but him reading email from printed paper is a very old guy thing to do.

    Who actually watch over 1hour of something on utube that's not a movie

    @2:40 Gordon doesn't appreciate the fact that you're doing 4k gaming for only $500 (xbox one x), while just the graphics card in a desktop can easily run you that much, thanks to crypto-currency and limited supply.
    And as for the Intel/AMD laptop partnership, think about it like this: it's midway between an APU and discrete graphics. Less power draw than discrete graphics, more processing power than an APU.

    only 1080p? is this a joke? is this your threadripper v2?

  • November 11, 2017 at 10:26 am

    Is Alaina Yee now a regular guest on the show?

  • November 11, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    OK number 1. Why is Alaina a "Guest"…You guys are a team…

    Intel has had a rather good history with Linux support so I'd buy their gpus if they continue pushing out open source drivers. Like back in the day you just threw a matrox in there and forgot about it.

    Writing off Qualcomm is a bad move, they use licensed Apple tech and create much more powerful chips in an extremely small form factor. If they throw weight at Data Centers they could do some damage with some new bigger chips or take existing tech and lazy glue the chips together if they wanna be sloppy about it.

    Guys, are you PC enthusiasts or console plebs? Follow Gordon his example. Consoles are underpowered computers which are heavily locked down, developers have to adapt games to run on that underpowered hardware which severily limits what the games on the PC can do (AI which is as dumb as Donald Trump) and most of the gamers are locked out of playing some of the games because those are locked to the consoles. Worst of all, they don't even make money on the hardware any more, these days they only lock games to consoles to sell more online subscriptions. If they would just sell the games to PC gamers instead they would make more money, most of the PC gamers won't switch to consoles (third party games) and most console gamers won't switch to the PC, they just like it simple, which is fine. Nothing against the people who play on a console, even though they are responsible for keeping games much more limited than what the games could be if they would game on a PC instead, consoles itself have no place in modern times as far as I am concerned. It used to work because the hardware was dirt cheap (production of it, NES, SEGA…) and gaming on the PC was not developed well. The circumstances are different now. Gordon, stand your ground to these guys. 30 FPS and so called 4k (upscaled 1440p), don't make me laugh.
    Even Brad buys consoles, so disappointing. 😉

    If consoles would be cheaper I wouldn't mind and sympathize with people who have to use a console to game but consoles aren't cheaper. Look at how much the games cost and how much they pay for subscriptions which only allow you to play on the servers of the developers for which Sony and MS don't pay anything. It is a big ripoff. Buy a second-hands OEM, put a Vega56 or 1070 in it and you are good to go, if you are lucky with the PSU. Otherwise add $40-110 (I believe in buying a good one, it lasts for more than 10 years) more for the PSU and you are good to go.

    Do not build $5,000 PC if you need to ask how to choose the parts. PERIOD. Build a $2,000 PC and in three years do a $1000 upgrade. Then In five years buy WHOLE new $2,000 PC.

    Science – For average eye. To see all details in 1080P from 3 meters (9.8 feet) you would need a 75" TV. (Consoles aren't played in front of a PC monitor completely up close). 4K doesn't really make sense for gaming on TVs (for some time before we get affordable 90"+ TVs). This means that you would be enjoying it a ton more if you played in 1080P and higher frame rates, better details, AA, AF… The only plus of the newest 4K QLED and OLED is the HDR for movies and games (if supported)

    you can play overwatch on ultra with 60frames on a core i3 and an 1050ti chip.. so why not… have free sync on a core i3 notebook ?

    I've only just started watching these guys i'm wondering when they will be live again please
