Why wouldn't I want to miss this? Is it going to disappear from the internet forever once it's over? Will there be no articles about their conference? What are you not telling us?

Think of it like a sports game I guess, if you were very into a particular sport, you wouldn't want to miss one of the key events of the year being shown live, especially with that comfy 10pm UK slot. If you're not very into it, catch the highlights, they'll probably be half of tomorrows news roll.

I disagree. Unlike sports, which offers its viewers the fun and pleasure of watching live competition of athletes, these types of press conferences are just glorified ads. You don't have to watch ads live. In fact, I'd implore people not to do that.

It's a phrase to express excitement. It doesn't make a lot of sense, but it doesn't have to. It's like when people who make and sell crafty things say on Instagram: 'My new limited edition white beanies for black Friday will be gone quickly, so grab one before they're sold out!' It makes no sense. If they're sold out, how can anyone grab one? If everyone went to grab one quickly, they'd be gone and therefore you couldn't grab one. It's a statement that makes no sense, at least to me, and I hear it all the time. But it's to say, 'I haven't made many because limited edition stuff earns more money.'

You have a fair point if you don't find new technology interesting and therefore don't find the news that will come out of this entertaining.

But lets be honest, you'd be hard pressed to find TV coverage of any sport that doesn't have bucket loads of live adverts or sponsorship on the screen throughout the whole game, that ones a complete non point lol. As an F1 fan I don't even get to avoid the AMD ads (Here's a little game of spot the logo). In both cases, advertisement is rife throughout, and tangential to your enjoyment.

Well after watching that I'd like that time of my life back TBH I wasn't that impressed, maybe the laptops were ok but the 5600 boring and why waffle on about 8k when they don't even have a gpu for 4k and then to close it out with a 4000us cpu
IMO it would have been more exciting talking about their Navi 21...........

Taking too far ahead would have made no sense. It would undermine the 5600XT and the new mobile GPUs.

AMD is playing it clever by waiting for E3 and Computex. That way they get a larger gaming focus and don't harm their lower-end launches.

CES is more about general products than gaming. The earliest that AMD will talk about something new is GDC, and even then I think AMD will wait for E3.

For a glorified ad.

You can say that again.

And btw, I am a tech enthusiast, I just don't care for hype and advertisements.
