+jayztwocents , whats better ram frequency or latency lets say 4400 mhz 21 23 23 44 737 vs 4000 mhz 19 20 20 42 720, frequncy pretty much always wins right?

How did you even make that flying bird sound? Like did anyone else try it? It's hard

I never bought INTEL in my life, for my own PC! There was only a small window where i considered upgrading to Intel platform!
DON'T YOU want to new video review for RADEON VII with new drivers?! As it seems there must have been some issues with early drivers! Also worth noting that power consumption is relatively smaller compare to RTX 2080.
Also in the light of reality that RTX 2080 are dying fast i would strongly incline to AMD again! Here is why:

amd sucks they should quit making graphque cards ; nvidea is the best

have the drivers matured?
Jay, can you make a review of a crossfired Vega 64 vs Radeon VII and 2080/2080Ti? I think that would be cool
Antony Bellingham
Will you be doing an update when the drivers mature?

Ehem, it's pronounced, "Veee Two."

Not a fan of the cards aesthetics I must say.

I'm so disappointed with AMD and Intel. I've had a 1080ti, like forever. I want to upgrade, but there's nothing out STILL that's worth the upgrade considering the cost and real world performance. They're more worried with releasing cheap cards than making an upgrade path for me.
Matt Neilson
So have they sort out this driver issue now?

Rofl honestly when isn't AMD a huge let down? 2700x, released 2018 but is only 11% better than a 5+ year old i7 4790k; ROFL. AMD is a joke. Same old shit architecture, just on a smaller scale now lolololol.

Rofl and it is selling at the same price as the i7 4790k when it was released....5 years ago. Honestly AMD hardware is for people who don't want a quality PC.

Regarding the shooting of this video. Why not get a tripod for static shots like the introduction? Just curious. I weirdly got annoyed by the shaking which usually doesn't happen.

Good to hear. I have an legendary old one. AMD Raedon HD 5700. I would love to blow your mind on the computer I have that is still working and doing most thing I want it too. Remember Dells 1st XPS Red. Giant computer. I have only replace years ago .. OS. Memory . HD and a newer Optical drive.

I am assembling parts for my first build that a company did not assemble. Thanks for your videos and Your channel buddies
Hey Jay love the videos and unplanned comedy that goes on during was wondering how much you guys charge for PC builds, if it is based on the included components, and if you need all sent to you. here is current component list: Also wondered what kind of controller I could use internally in side PC for SAS drive (for large sample libraries). Also this is intended as a air cooled build due or using an AIO no closed loop just for ease of maintenance unless you specify otherwise.
Here is the main specs, sans SAS drive:
Background for this build is it is going to be used as a audio production/video editing for music mixing/mastering, twitch/youtube content, and gaming when not producing/editing.

Basically buy a 2nd hand 1080ti and save the rest for the next gen GPU RTX is a joke and Vega is a flop
Radeon VII is a fucking joke. If they wants to grab Nvidia customers, Radeon VII cant be *as good* as what Nvidia's offering - it has to be *better* that what Nvidia is offering. AMD need to get their heads out of their asses if they want to actually hurt Nvidia's high end segment.

I agree with u so much competition creates innovation

Can you do a cutom GPU "shroud" for vertical mount GPUs?

AMD Radeon VII Review: Not Ready for Launch AMD Radeon VII... We NEED to talk 2 months ago   26:55

Reviewing AMD's Radeon VII video card vs. the RTX 2080 and others, featuring OpenCL tests, graphite thermal pad vs. paste tests, acoustics, gaming, & more.
Ad: Buy the Thermaltake Core P3 on Amazon


This review answers a lot of potential questions, particularly those wondering about what "Junction temperature" is on the AMD Radeon VII, or how it compares versus "GPU temperature." While walking through graphite thermal pad tests vs. thermal paste, we also talk mounting pressure, noise levels, MOSFET thermals, and performance. Cards tested include Radeon VII, Vega 56, Vega 64, GTX 1080 Ti, RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti, Titan RTX, and many more.
