How to overclock: it's easier than you think
AMD RX Vega's new high-bandwidth caching tech makes 4GB viable for a high-end GPU
AMD RX Vega - release date, price, specs and rumours
To be fair it's pretty good for people who do know what they're doing. As someone who's constantly ripping out and replacing components, and entire platforms, I'm always hugely impressed how robust Windows 10 is when it comes to just getting on with booting up again and sorting out new drivers without bothering you.
There really is a lot to like about it, however nanny-ish it can sometimes get :)
of course, anything good for the nOOb pc users is always even better for the hardcore user

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.
Vulkan’s multi-GPU support isn’t just for Windows 10. Linux gamers get to suffer too.

At a guess I'd say it's probably a simpler problem working out how to jam more cores onto a die than to get one up to the single-threaded throughput of Intel's.
AMD are operating with a tenth of the R&D budget of Intel, so I still kinda think the CPU and GPU tech they do put out is seriously impressive in that context.
Seems there might be a jury-rigged 16-core/32-thread Ryzen CPU on its way soon

No, Microsoft said they weren't going to support new CPUs on legacy operating systems and lo, it has come to pass.
Just funny timing with the Ryzen performance differences.

That's actually the page for the original GTX 1080, though I hear you, it would be surprising were the Ti version not to use the same.

I hear you, I was there with Bulldozer and R600...
But I'm hoping against hope that this time will be different. The omens at least are better this time around, and so are the early benchmarks. We'll know for sure soon though.
Yes, but Zen is *very* different to Bulldozer in design and a lot closer to how Intel's architecture works. I made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfZFNR5igtY a while back if you want to know why.
As far as I'm aware there is no way to overclock the standard spinning platters of a hard drive. The 10,000RPM Western Digital Raptor drives are the speediest traditional HDD I've seen and even then is a long way behind even old SSDs.
Though Intel were working on storage overclocking that was only for SSDs.
If the bottleneck in your system is the storage your only option is to upgrade to an SSD I'm afraid.
I believe the attrition rate on modern solid state drives though is getting beyond HDDs now and while there is far less space for the cash 250GB SSDs are now quite affordable.
Heh, maybe. But my case doesn't have enough space for 4 ssd (both in terms of space for SATA SSDs that plug in into the drive bay and in terms of pci-e slots) and I need at least 1tb to be comfortable with all the shit I install/play.
I reckon they'll stick with the crazy $1,700 for the deca-core Skylake-X chip, but still not really sure what to expect from the smaller, quad-core Kaby Lake-X CPUs.
Well, it's really not that crazy considering the power. Wonder how well it will be supported by the mobo vendors, so you can save on that.
