    Highly doubt they can hit $399 without eating cost. The difference in raw cost they showed vs the xsx is max $50 and if you assume $499 for xsx, they would still be eating $50 if they launch $399.

    It is a 399 dollars machine for sure. They cut cost notably on memory bandwidth. More than the Tflops it is the memory which show how they cut corner for PS5 and like I said compressed the SSD speed is above 7 GB/s.

    Perhaps for RDNA2, SeriesX's 1.8Ghz is within the new range of conservative / mobile clocks, whereas the PS5's 2.23GHz will be more indicative of AMD's upcoming desktop cards.

    AMD claimed an improvement of 50% in efficiency for RDNA2. The clock / power efficiency curves are definitely very different with RDNA2.

    Well, if you're going to lose, I guess that's the best way to lose?

    Too bad this isn't horseshoes or hand grenades, you would have won then. :p

    I won, but fuck it.
    In my follow-up post I claimed I expected 11.1 TF so I'll pay as well.




    He didn't lose by 30Mhz. He gave a considerably large range with an upper limit (2.2GHz) he considered to be near impossible to achieve. This limit was broken against the expectations.

    So the only way I can donate is if I cancel my subscription and start a new one? Assuming I wasn't charged already during this year?

    Hold off on doing anything right now. I did page Rys in this thread and on the Slack channel. Hope all is well with him and he's able to respond.

    I need to validate the account upgrades are working properly and see if they were triggered for ProElite and Global. I don't even know if I can see that portion of the admin consoles. I do now from my other sites, there is some time lag with getting notified of cleared payments and then the system applying the upgrades.

    For @Rys housekeeping and transparancy, I manually added the secondary Subscriber group to Proelite and Globalisateur since they didn't have it applied but had the entries in the user upgrade log.
