Listen: Steve Gibson Leo Laporte, Archie, Clock Cycles Nichols discussed on This Week in Computer Hardware
"Comes very close to the performance of seventy nine and graphics card so close in fact that it's like it's it's negligible. It's what's what's two or three frames per second in a game if you're already over sixty if you're already over. Whatever your monitors refresh rate is it depends on your marketing department? Ns Yeah we've talked about the the mark the segmentation to death and it's right. We've we've reached the point. Where there are you I would have thought they discontinued the six? Ti because it's a super kind of replaces a and really at that point. Why even have the super price cut the sixty I but I think everything everything I think? They're leaving everything in the inventory. Everything that's in the channel is just going to stay there until it's sold or it becomes so embarrassingly outdated for the price versus the performance that they just have to give up on either slash the price ages. They just seem to be sitting on everything at this point It's painful. It's irritating Eh. Although I will say maybe it was the brilliant long play strategy like they were playing chess mentally playing checkers or something when the sixty sixty what am I trying to say when the sixth the RT x twenty sixty super came out. I was confused why they were still selling the non-super version of that card they discontinued the. Gt Search artifacts are discontinued the RT x twenty seventy replaced it with a super. They discontinued a new the archie twenty eighty replace it with a super they left the RT x twenty sixty in place at three forty nine and released the super three ninety ninety nine and now they I think architects twenty sixty down to ninety nine which makes sense. That's what it should have been cut down to to begin with so there's that there's that bridge between the GTS and the Archie series at three ninety nine to ninety nine before you jump up to three ninety nine with a twenty sixty super. If anything thing I just said is even reasonably accurate. It I guess in the end it made sense to keep the Arctic twenty sixty alive and not just continue it but the continued existence of the sixteen sixty. Ti is puzzling. It's troubling yeah and I don't like it you've spent way you too much time thinking through this. It's all I'm GonNa say this Patrick. I'm not even thinking as you're thinking if you carefully the words that I'm saying there's not a whole lot of I'd not gonNA save validity but maybe there's some measurable percentage of the Clock Cycles Nichols available inside of your skull dedicated being pissed off about the sixteen sixty ti period discussion. There's no arguing that you won't die. I won't even try before we talk about ten eighty p gaming and why apparently is still incredibly critical Because apparently everybody's still loves sanity beginning Would remind you that we are happy.
