I'll have a go at this game next week.
I reckon my undervolted V64 nitro+ will achieve better min fps at 4k than the test card here, because the undervolting removes throttling and dips in the core...

No, the first series are replacing vega 56 and 64, which are now EOL.
The lower end Navis will presumably be replacing the 590, 580 etc at some point (or at the same point).
I'd assume cheaper then...

Ok, Had a little look into it.
So it's not really 4k for the DLSS in Final Fantasy 15 - it's 1440p upscaled then supersampled. This spreads the load onto the Tensor cores and gives faster FPS.

Ok, there is a need then :)

Why would you need AA at 4k resolution?
I suppose if you're going through a big screen, but my 4k monitor's a 27 inch screen, absolutely no need for AA at that pixel density.

A very unexciting launch.
It's for people building new systems basically - no-one on skylake is going to upgrade and those of us on X99 have already chosen a different path

Can you build a rig cheaper than a store bought system?

Yes and I did.

Largely because I got the OCUK black friday deals;
X99 bundle for £670 or £690, r9 390 8gb for £206
Great base for a...

The best thing about these, apart from performance and knowing you have the fastest, smallest drive on the planet, is that they take up zero space on your rig.

There are a lot of cases which say ATX, but they'll take...
