Quoting: TheRiddickThis is a 2021 Q1 product at best. Unless AMD plans to bypass AIB and sell them direct. Because vendors are in the dark about these also, that means nobody has built any stock.
I wonder, a few days ago, we heard that the specs were being finalized and now we have leaks of the finalized cards already. It makes me seriously wonder, whether AMD is actually planning on pushing their own design into stores as fast as possible to make the October event into a Launch event? One month to get the cards to vendors would theoretically be enough (not to everyone ofcourse), but there is also production involved if they have just finalized everything... so who knows. I doubt the event will be a launch event, but you never know. If they rush it, they will probably fail with something again.

Amnesia: Rebirth from Frictional Games confirmed for launch on October 20

Quoting: undeadbydawnThe Frictional-approved Amnesia Remastered mod is up, and it's glorious. Get it here https://www.moddb.com/mods/amnesia-the-dark-descent-remastered

you have to place the included main_settings.cfg in ~.frictionalgames/Amnesia/Main for it to actually work, and work it very much does.
Came for rebirth, left with a dark decent. Thank you! I was not aware of this mod, but now, I shall be replaying the original Dark Descent until rebirth is out.

This design looks, stunning.
We do not have the measurements, but from the picture I think that the fans are finally a bit bigger than what they were on R_VII. If that is the case and they have managed to get decent power/performance ratio, then this could work really, really well this time around.
But, as with everything, all is but speculations until we see it in real life and some 3rd party reviewers have had the chance to dig deep into the cards. Hopefully this reference design is given a teardown by GamersNexus and if good, maybe we would even see it in stores.

But until then, ALL ABOARD THE HYPE-TRAIN! AYYY!

... or do?

The weekend chat - what have you been playing?

Got around to finishing up Life is Strange 2 and I would very highly recommend this to anyone who is into story-based games.
As you can see, I no longer try to finish up Dwarf Fortress... the dwarves... they are having a nap for the time being. :D

Anyone interested in buying my MSI 2080Ti GamingX Trio for 600eur?
No?

Didn't think so...

Yes, butthurt... much. That's what I get for being a douche and paying too much for a GPU.

What play button have you been clicking on lately?

What have you been playing on Linux? Come and have a chat

Dwarf Fortress. Finally tried it out after pushing it aside for over 10 years now, but after I had to RMA my GPU, I was left with little choice which would run on my old laptop... and it is absolutely amazing!
I now have the 2080Ti back from the repairs and I still cannot find time to play anything else but Dwarf Fortress. :D

Valve continues to improve Linux Vulkan Shader Pre-Caching
31 May 2020 at 7:47 am UTC Likes: 2

This is crazy. I tried The Witcher 3 a few months ago and the shader-cache buildup was the last issue that I had with it - now I just fire up the game with the latest proton and it runs exactly the same as on Windows, if not even a bit better. Truly amazing work has been put into the whole Wine project. (I mean to wine, proton, dxvk and all the other derivatives of getting dx calls translated onto Vulkan)
It is truly an amazing time for anyone to give Linux desktop a go when looking into alternatives to Windows.
