PC nerd bros... what did you think of CES?
It looks like the ridiculous GPU prices aren't going away any time soon. The new GPUs they released are either super high end or super low end.. nothing to fill the gap of what most people want. Disappointing.

Like wise, I wish AMD would release more 3d cache CPUs... seriously only ONE model? No 5900 or 5950 3d versions?
AMD is becoming like intel.. they don't want to give people awesome CPUs right before they release their new AM5 platform.
I would totally upgrade my 3900x to a 5900x3d, but I guess AMD doesn't want my money??

Why? For what? Gaming?

If you're computer isn't making money then you're doing it wrong.

Re: PC nerd bros... what did you think of CES?
I'm tired of all the gaming GPU's, I use Davinci Resolve and Vegas Pro and other video content creation software and post production software VFX. I need a GPU that will enhance this sector of the market by reducing render time, work with multiple video streams and run video without stuttering. I do not need a card that sucks up 300 watts, how about a content creation card that can work under 50 watts? Damn basement dwelling gamers and their crap, people that really work need a solution.

Video displays are going the way with organic LEDs which is saying to me, built in obsolescence as OLEDs have a burn in problem which effects longevity. I don't want to invest in a new monitor every two years like a workstation.

Re: PC nerd bros... what did you think of CES?
Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 Monitor is nice
A 34" curved one with a 3840x2160 4K resolution, 240Hz refresh rate with a 1ms response time.

But it will probably run you around $2,500 and the best GPU out there now might not cut it

but anyway, nice monitor

Re: PC nerd bros... what did you think of CES?
in my main pc i have a radeon r9 390x 8gb and i was looking to upgrade...

but there is nothing better specs wise, that's worth the money, i could save a few watts by paying hundreds.. but that's it.

it's like the gpu has hit its bottleneck with the technology.

that is a 32" monitor, not 34"
but the 240Hz refresh rate makes it tempting

GPU's will continue to be a problem because of Ethereum. They are working hard to stop mining ETH and switch to proof of stake but its gonna take 6 months at least.

Re: PC nerd bros... what did you think of CES?
Agreed OP on all points.

Hopefully AMD will trickle out more 3d vcache sku's soon. But super happy still with my 5950x + 6900xt AMD version. Was very fortunate to score that.

But yeah ces was a whole lot of meh.

Damn nvidia is tone deaf right now. Guess that's why the 3090 ti(e) only got a whopping 15 secs of "air time".

For me it's ips panels and their bs claims of 1ms. Those panels give me severe eye strain and fatigue. 144 hz TN panel all the way for me. Color isn't too bad after adjustments. And REAL 1ms gray to gray.

that's not going to work, they will just switch to mining another coin.

tbh. the new GPU's are getting only a little bit more hash rates than the 5 year old gpu's and that's with the hash limit bypass.

Re: PC nerd bros... what did you think of CES?
At one point in time in my life. I was completely on top of the latest technology. MFM drives, RLL drives, scsi 1 and scsi 2 drives. Raid drives and remember when stacker was a software doubler.
Well I'm dating myself. I've been around from the TRS80 apple and comodore pet, SDS100 and PDP 11.
My cell phone has more features than anything back in the day.
IF I could play a good game at a decient frame rate. IT was all I asked.
I'm sure you guys are doing more than I need to do on the computer end. But 1600 for a GPU is what a motherboard cost back in the day. On top of $3K for a half decient computer desktop. Or double for a high-end machine to run compilers.
Monochrome vs cga, RGB to VGA 8 bit and 16 bit, Then brought a video port just for a graphic card, and other graphic platforms.
