    So, a hypothetical question...

    If money was not a factor (because we all know the Titan V is rather expensive), would you rather have a Titan V or 2080 Ti for gaming?

    Best answer wins a hug.

    My man! I'm off to drive the Whisky Trail south on the way home from Lossiemouth next month. Perks of the job.

    2080Ti, unless your workload is All Tensor Cores All The Time.

    Hugs to all. And now I smell of whisky.

    Truth be told, I'm a rum and ginger beer man myself.

    Dark 'n' stormy. Wood's Old Navy (57%) goes well in one of them, though finding decent ginger beer that hasn't been artificially sweetened to within an inch of its life is getting increasingly difficult.

    With rum, there can only be Old Jamaica ginger beer... It's the law.

    Navy strength rum with lime and soda is nice too if you're watching the waistline but want to get rinsed.

    AMD GPUs in 2015: Nothing at the sharp end
    AMD GPUs in 2016: Nothing at the sharp end
    AMD GPUs in 2017: Nothing at the sharp end
    AMD GPUs in 2018: Nothing at the sharp end

    Much clearer than any other naming scheme:naughty::naughty::naughty:

    Sadly they too have succumbed to the 'reduce sugar, replace with sweetener, make everything taste like ass' brigade. Coke is pretty much the only pop left untouched. But it now costs twice as much.

    *grasps the desk for balance from the shock of THAT news!!!!

    If that's the case, I'm absolutely gutted!! My mate's Mrs is BA cabin crew who does the Caribbean legs. I'll have to ask her to bring me back some proper stuff and a few bottles of Ting as well.

    I think the whole market of PC components marketing is confusing as a whole... Take a look at Intel, back when you bought a X38 platform, it was easier to buy a CPU and motherboard - Do I want a Dual core, Quad core, or Extreme processor?

    Now we have Mainstream Z3xx
    Enthusiast Systems X2xx - Yet the Mainstream is faster at gaming than the Enthusiast systems...
    (I could name every platform, but you get the picture).

    Also it seems to be a rush to bring CPU's with as many cores as you can fit on a die these days, but who needs these "Server CPU's" anyway? - If I need all that power, then I would buy a Dedicated Server...

    Don't get me started on M.2 / Msata / SSD's / PCIe / HDD X2 / X4 drives... The market is a mess!
