      What matters is real-life situations. So whatever people play and run at the moment is most important. A game tailored towards AMD no one plays otherwise can be nice as marketing, but nothing more. E.g. Dota 2 with its 1M players per day is a lot more important than Ashes of Singularity or whatever marketing game.

        TDP means very little. All it is is a guarantee from AMD that it will dissipate no more than 150 watts. The typical power in game will most likely be around 100 watts.

          I didn't know. I'm sorry Michael if I offended you in anyway. I meant to cheer up.
          BTW. What part exactly was rude, or was all of my comment rude?

            RX 460 has 75W TDP, but actually typicaly should use 45W, as it does not need an external power connector and if really use declared TDP of 75W it will turn off itself most the time ... Basicaly typical is at around 60%, i guess people's calculation coming from there. So if RX 480 is 150W TDP then 60% typical should be 90W

            I always forgot VRAM... as more VRAM models for sure asks for some watts more, but not sure how much

              Hm, when i think of how much Turtle Interactive's F1 2015 is slower in benchmarks with AMD aka 1/3 perf of original Windows game, then my bets goes to hell Guessing that Nvidia is more efficient maybe as that runs a game at half speed

              I can't conclude nothing in that case, my IQ automaticaly goes to 1/3 turtle level too

                Talking about weight i guess, overweight people is actualy common in US... it is among highest in the world, so Michael taken by US average looks actually normal in that picture. So if someone is from very greenish country and talk to someone from very redish, do not say that something is wrong, the best is i guess to learn to ignore it

                Opposite is true too, so when someone comes from redish country to greenish, do not ask why everybody buy small cars

                  That graph is also an over-simplificaton, I remember when visiting in USA about 5 years ago, I noticed that some states people were much more likely to be overweight, and also in some cities. e.g. New York people looked pretty normal, whereas in Los Angeles I saw an incredible amount of large families.
                  Also, here in Africa, the newly-prosperous class tends to be the ones that are overweight. And the new discovery of fast-food. We definitely ate more fast food when we were more stressed and had less time. Recently we have been making an effort to eat better, and take things slower (e.g. both our new jobs actually pay a little less, but is just around the corner from where we stay, so we have much more time available for cooking or playing with the kids)

                  Regardless:
                  Michael, how can we help you minimize stress? I had a horribly stressful life last year, it was likely the worst year of my life. I'm already a premium subscriber. What else can we do?

                    The article has the Radeon parts using the OSS drivers... so its really hard to make any conclusions just yet, as the Nvidia parts are using their proprietary drivers... Once Michael posts the test results of the Radeon parts using the hybrid driver and/or posts the Nvidia cards running Noveau, we will have an apples to apples comparision.

                      Map is actualy not for overweight but by obesity percentage, so only extra overweighted with BMI > 30... Here is a BMI graph, anyone can see where he is We can even ask here... let say, does really every third american reading this belongs to red column? If about 30 out of 100 are red that is about it
