Wow! I'm really impressed on FSR. Just lower the resolution and you get much better performance in 4K without seeing any obvious difference in image quality!

Now I just want to know whether the 7" screen supports variable refresh rate.. If it does, it really starts to look like a dream handheld.

For $400 I would be VERY interested to buy a device like this:

- 7-8" 1080p (w FreeSync)
- DHMI port for TV output
- USB-C (charging, 3.1 data port)
- WIFI5 + Bluetooth
- 8GB of RAM
- 128GB+ MVME (multiple options?)
- Good battery life
- Expected controller features (rumble etc)

Software:

- Netflix 1080p
- Controller mode (Wii U?!?)
- Games should come with optimal presets / pre-cached
- Proper UI scaling and upscaling in games

Metro Exodus from 4A and Deep Silver has officially released for Linux

I also really wish to get EE version of the game for Linux, even if I don't yet own RTX card. It would finally give me a reason to get one. :) BTW, it looks like in the normal version you can enable RTX even if you have only GTX card, though the performance penalty is really bad.

I would love to get a copy. I've been waiting to test ray tracing in Linux as my daughters computer has RTX 2060 Super (while I'm stuck with 1080 Ti while waiting prices to go down... forever?)

I'm really happy that Feral is still doing Linux ports as their games tend to perform a bit better than Windows binaries.

Oh, crap, I also need RTX capable GPU!

Now if they only fixed the power saving when using more than one 4K display...

Not using AMD CPU.. I am so happy with my upgraded AMD powered desktop that I'm not going back to Intel until they have something to offer...

AMD announce the Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 5 3600XT

Quoting: mylkahttps://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-3700X-vs-AMD-Ryzen-7-1700X/4043vs3915

I wouldn't trust UserBenchmark, it says that i3 is faster in gaming than any Ryzen processor, which is a lie as many new AAA games require 6+ threads for smooth gaming. Here is the quote:

"The heavily hyped 3700X offers real world gaming performance comparable to the $80 USD entry level 4-core, 4-thread Intel Core i3-9100F."
