AMD Ryzen 7 1800X review: robust symbol of a resurgent AMD, but still no gaming CPUAMD Ryzen 7 1800X review: robust symbol of a resurgent AMD, but still no gaming CPU
Anakhoresis Avatar
Honestly, the only real issue seems to be how much AMD advertised it for gaming. It was pretty obvious it wasn't going to be some sort of beast gaming CPU when most games don't even use over 4 cores or threads, and even then generally limit themselves to 2 cores for most functions.

I'm really interested to see if the Ashes of the Singularity developers really can deliver on the claim that there's a lot more in there but the architecture needs to be optimised for.Reply

Yeah, I think the hype train got away from AMD a little bit. We knew from the initial 40% IPC improvement estimates that it wouldn't surpass Intel in the gaming stakes. But everybody got a bit carried away after seeing the slightly misleading 4K performance numbers.

Swapping engines won't necessarily improve performance. There are Unreal engine games with terrible performance, and Unity games with great performance.


Hopefully it does, but it's not a given.

It'll more than likely improve things tbh. Unreal is a much better engine for bigger games. Unity is a great little engine for mobile, small indie or strategy games, but as soon as it's pressured into needing to perform in terms of stable fps in first/third person shooter type games, it clogs up.


Of course optimization helps, but we've seen it time and time again. Unreal engine is much better overall for these types of things.

Aw shoot, I thought they were going to include GTA V multiplayer in which case I was going to say "The way the whole thing works."

I like how UWP apps don't leave a trail of files and registries behind all over the system. UWP apps keep them contained in 1 folder.

On that note, why the heck was it so difficult for developers to understand that the "My Games" folder was for game information and saves? So frustrating how that was implemented and yet developers still kept putting saves in "My Documents"

Digital Homicide's lawsuit against Jim Sterling is dismissed with prejudiceDigital Homicide's lawsuit against Jim Sterling is dismissed with prejudice
Anakhoresis Avatar
"I personally viewed, and still view, the lawsuit as an attempted attack on my freedom to do my legally protected job."

I'm confused as to what exactly he means here. Suing someone for damages for libel and slander is a perfectly acceptable thing, -if- their accusations are factual. Even in terms of opinion pieces, I would assume the opinion has to be based on truths? For example, if someone posted an article that completely destroyed the game Paragon because it uses Unity3D as the game engine, that would be demonstrably false.

I'm not supporting Digital Homicide whatsoever, just questioning the phrasing that was used.

I'm definitely hoping it turns out well, though I'm a little worried by how AMD are doing their marketing. I get that they don't want to set in stone the numbers of a product that's still fluctuating, but the amount of times they just refuse to use numbers is worrisome.

FTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robotsFTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robots
Anakhoresis Avatar

I was going to say I wish they had ported FTL to Android, but then I realized it would probably be an utter pain to try and get move the little guys around on my phone screen...


Into the Breach (Pacific Rim?) doesn't look so far to have micromanagement like that but the website only says Steam.

Yeah I can't imagine playing on a phone, but FTL works beautifully on tablets.

Oops, I didn't really clearly state what I was asking for: Why would those articles make you leave? If it's not affecting the other content and can be pretty easily ignored, it seems like an extreme reaction.

well, I came to this site for the sole purpose to find new games that maybe interesting, its right in the title, "PC games news and reviews".


if the amount of SEO filler content outweighs what I'm here for, the site no longer fulfills its purpose in my bookmarks, pretty simple.

I could understand if you took issue with how the article or information is presented, such as bias or somesuch. But just that it exists? Especially since there have been probably, what, around 10-15 politically connected articles in around the last 6 months maybe? Just don't click on that article...


I personally am not a fan of the consistent barrage of articles about esports games being updated (Seems like a sidebar with homes for your favourite games would be a better solution for that), but I just don't go and read them. Doesn't affect me more than scrolling past another article, and while yes it's not the best comparison as they're still games, the ratio of those articles to the others is much higher than the political ones.


I am hoping for a reply! I am honestly curious about your thoughts on that.

well, technically it is biased, because if Trump didn't win, this article wouldn't exist. however that wasn't the point I was going for at all.


the point I was trying to make was about the fact that more and more articles are downright click-bait and riddled with SEO keyword cancer, speaking of cancer, those year old posts showing that they were posted a few hours ago because somebody added a paragraph to it, all without putting any highlight/indication of said additions.


fair point about the esports / moba gets a patch posts, as somebody who does play some of those games this is the last place I'd consider checking for patchnotes because there aren't even any categories, everything is just thrown together into one pile. which is also one of the reasons I absolutely loathe this type of post, because I have to scroll past it in the hopes of finding something I'd be interested in.


take that as you will, that's just my opinion of it.
