If they concentrated on actually making some games to play then the protection would be a good idea.

This year has been one of the worst ever.

But no, all about greed and protecting the money you manage to fleece off of people for incomplete and unfinished games.

Consoles games though... they've been killing it.

It actually depresses me that this is the AAA game industry in a nutshell.

It's the exact reason why I steer well clear of any western AAA game these days. Looking back at my recent purchases, I've not bought a single EA, Bethesda, Ubisoft, or Activision game for at least 5 years and I genuinely don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. I'd rather spend my money on smaller devs who make great games and put their passion into it as an art form.

30 years ago it was a different story with fantastic games coming out nearly every week.

The focus was on actual gameplay and originality but not on graphics which were very poor.

Now days it is all about graphics but the gameplay and originality are very poor indeed.

I know which I preferred.

3rd generation Ryzen and X570 chipset confirmed for Computex 2019, first desktop platform with PCIe gen 4.

I was going to ask why bother with PCIe 4.0 when 5.0 is right around the corner but then I remembered, there's always a delay between the specifications being released and consumer devices appearing

It will be nice to see AMD leading the forefront again. Being stuck on PCIe 2.0 and DDR3 while Intel were steaming ahead were dark times

What is strange are the only GPUs that would really benefit at the moment from PCI-E 4.0 are the top end NVidia ones.


Maybe AMD have some fast GPUs coming out in 2019.

The only GPU that can actually use PCIe4.0 at the moment is Vega 7nm, and presumably Navi will be the first consumer GPU to use it. But there's much more important reasons for AMD to adopt PCIe4.0 on their motherboards than top-end GPU performance. It ushers in a sea of improvements to efficiency and power consumption, while that doubling of the bandwidth per link is critical to reducing power consumption, price & space in laptops(Devices that used to use x8 or x4 can now use x4 or x2, fewer active links = lower consumption). It also means SSDs, network cards ect suck up less of the spare bandwidth, while allowing 200Gb Ethernet cards and similar technologies reliant on PCIe4.0 x16 to come to market.

Chances are the first practical use of PCIe4.0 GPU wise will be for MXM based GPUs(Probably Navi) that are physically limited to a x8 link but nowadays often feature chips roughly equivalent to their full fledged desktop counterparts at the top end.

Of course, besides the fact people like forward compatibility and all of that(I still have systems using PCIe2.0 that are more than capable in most aspects, it's good to have some wiggle room).
