    I wonder if Michael will give you a premium account if you regularly ship him beer.
    Can he find LöBrau beer too?

      I'll be impressed when they send you a laptop/ryzen mobile device haha

        I thought myself about shipping some bottles to him. I guess transport by plane is not recommended because of temperature and pressure deltas and high cost. Leaves transport by ship which is cheap but slow. On the other hand I don‘t know about tariffs on German beer and how to pay them in advance. Complex matter that is.

          I like the beer even more. Where can you get them or which brewery is it so I can try to source it in Europe/Germany.


          Nevermind Found it. Have to get some in the NL.

            They should name it the Radeon MC 68000

              It is a shame the AMD isn't lifting their embargo until after all the cards are sold out. What are they hiding? NVidia lifted their embargo a few days before so that real people, not bots, could decide if they would work for their needs. I was hoping to see some independent reviews before the launch as I was planning to get up early to see if I could land one, I have projects that need more horse power than I have currently. But this is a pretty big investment to spend on based on the word of the marketing dept and not knowing if it will work at all with the apps I need.

              I appreciate you giving us as much as you could Michael.

                Am I the only one deeply troubled at seeing that beer tilted on the coaster, open and full, directly in the direction of the cards?

                It's the type of shot people take for fun, then go "ok, let me quickly remove this beer, hahaha", then proceed to knock the bottle 100% the way they imagined and were trying to avoid.

                  Did AMD suddenly decide to adopt the Motorola 68000 architecture for the Radeon?

                  What's next? Copper?

                    An AMD developer told us here on Phoronix that it should work even on Intel mainboards if they do support the resizable BAR feature, my X99 board does - therefore I'd expect that it works there, too. I hope we will get to see some SAM on / SAM off testing on Intel mainboards to see if it has the same performance impact...

                      6800 as a fine 8 bit variant
