In this week’s The Full Nerd, Gordon Mah Ung, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Dan Masaoka talk about the release of AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 56, and how the Radeon RX Vega lineup compares against Nvidia’s GeForce cards. It doesn’t really matter for the GTX 1070 or Radeon RX Vega 56, since you can’t buy either at anywhere near suggested pricing, so we dive into Radeon Vega 64 vs. GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti as well.
After that, we dive into how Intel’s 8th-gen Core processors escalate the core wars against AMD’s Ryzen chips. Quad-core Ultrabooks and 6-core Intel desktop CPUs, here we come! Finally, the gang discussed our cheeky Threadripper 1920x1080ti PC, which is definitely overkill for 1920×1080 gaming. We built the beast shortly after Full Nerd was live. Check it out!
