    @horgen: There isn't much actual choice for AM4 coolers at the moment -- in any budget range.

    @squidward360: But you wouldn't be playing on multiple consoles at the same time. Surely you'd turn one off, go into the other room and turn the other one on?

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Should I Update My PC or Get a Ps4 Pro?. on the PlayStation Nation board

    Ah, if you have no PS4 at all, then it might be worth getting a Pro (or even consider getting a launch model second-hand for super cheap). Especially if the games you want (and it seems the PS4 will h...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic AMD Ryzen will be available on March 2nd. on the System Wars board

    @BassMan: I think it's safe to assume we won't see it outright match Kabylake in single-core performance because the best case scenario is that Ryzen matches Skylake/Kabylake's IPC, and clocks about t...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic So the flagship Ryzen won't include stock cooler. on the PC & A/V Hardware board

    TBF I don't think you'll be as hard up finding an affordable cooler for AM4 unless you are looking to buy on launch day. I'd imagine most of the cooler makers will be slipping AM4 brackets into the ne...

    @ello432: This is only the top-third of the Ryzen line-up. We've seen rumoured pricing of the entire product stack which basically has 4c/8t parts competing in i5 price territory, and true 4c parts co...

    @topgun182: If you don't run at over 60fps even a fairly old processor is going to give you a fairly robust experience. And if you can keep rocking that chip for years to come then more power to you.

  • Articuno76 posted a message on the post AMD Unveils Ryzen 7 CPU Line With The 1800X, 1700X, And 1700.

    @silv3rst0rm: It would be one thing if the performance in certain scenarios was considerably behind. But everything we've heard suggests it's almost margin of error level variation. And if that's the ...

  • Articuno76 posted a message in the forum topic Port Beggars Thread. on the System Wars board

    If I want a game on PC it's because the console version is lacking in some way that a PC might fix. One such example is Trails of Cold Steel which is afflicted with framerate issues in parts and terri...

    Currently playing The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Not a retro-game, but it's kinda trippy to be playing a modern game in the same world as A Link to The Past, and seeing how familiar it is...

    Port-begging is when you whine about wanting a game on your platform because you don't want to buy another one. That is not what wanting Nioh on the PC is about as the chances are if you like a game w...
