Again you're talking about this stuff like it's already happened yet there's no proof at all that this is the case, since it's a future event and remains to be seen. If what you say is true then why...

It's funny how you talk about things in the future as if they're in the past tense :confused: Perhaps you could share your time machine with the rest of us?

I agree that an R9 270/270X or 7850*/7870 is a great idea. I got a used 7870 for $80 about 4-5 months ago and I'm surprised how close it is in performance to a 7950/R9 280 (which I have in another...

The same was true for AVC back in its early days too--like 2005-2007ish? Give it a couple years and every bargain basement dGPU, and every iGPU/APU will be able to do these things no problem.

Yeah but what's that encoded in AVC/h.264? That's no sweat.


HEVC/h.265 is totally different and Intel HD 2500 certainly will not decode it at all (has no such capability). It'll be either on...

Iris and Iris Pro (w/eDRAM) are both more powerful than anything AMD has for integrated GPUs. It's just that Intel only puts it in a few high-end, expensive and rare CPUs. Also Skylake's HD 530,...

This thing seems neat but really it's not much different in price than buying similar components and then a 34" curved monitor. Obviously a huge chunk of the cost is in the monitor. This of course...

A 7750 and a 550 Ti are essentially equal in GPU performance. You've basically got two cards there that perform the same but are from different manufacturers. Unless there's a driver quirk with one...

LOL 1x1, jokes. Keep in mind that when you select 800x600, your AVR more than likely does no accept such a resolution. What happens is your GPU puts that inside an output resolution (a "wrapper" if...
