    Sorry, I meant Maxwell vs. Pascal :(

    You completely missed the point and the question at hand, was AdoredTV's coverage and conclusions that of an AMD fanboy, or were his conclusions fair and balanced, with no favoritism for AMD and no outsized condemnation of Nvidia?

    The material was a fair and balanced coverage that didn't favor one brand over the other, and for someone new to the subject there wasn't any need to forewarn potential viewers of any imagined built-in bias of AdoredTV as @Carrot Top or @Kevin felt was necessary.

    That's the BS I am exposing to stop before more such BS prejudice spreads.

    I ignored the 'point' and the 'question at hand', because they are unrelated to the point of this thread—nVidia Volta, and what history tells us about it. Whether or not AdoredTV is biased (I doubt he is, but he can get long and ranty, as demonstrated above) or not, matters only to the extent of whether or not the source is accepted and legitimate in its content, and that discussion certainly isn't worth five pages of insults, ad hominems and so on.

    When I said 'nothing he says is new', it already means that given current facts, AdoredTV's video is an accurate, unbiased source (albeit with pro-AMD overtones), because it corroborates known facts today. No need to say anything more.

    Mayhap you could read between the lines a little bit more yourself :)

    I don't want to waste any more thread space discussing the source itself rather than the content of the source in question, that has been done. Biased or not, I would still read/watch/listen to the source and form my own opinions. Saying 'this guy has an agenda, don't listen to him' already stifles debate. It's why I consume everything from Fox News, Breitbart, Buzzfeed News to CNN, BBC, Reuters, AP and AFP, regardless of the source quality and content.

    What utter nonsense and irrelevant ego-race this topic has endured the last 2 days...

    Guys... That's a bit too much isn't it?

    On-topic: my guess for volta is that pascal and its similarity to desktop parts was a one time deal.
    For volta we will have M versions and N versions at an even bigger premium. Think 980m and ful-fat980.

    They are already testing the field...

    Hm. I don't think that's likely. People have tasted what desktop 'parity' is like, they won't go back.

    I fix it for yoo:) Max-Q is the replacement for M:D Max-Profit.

    Exactly, so now they are willing to pay more for "parity" or accept the lower grade M (Max-Q?) part.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I'm a business men, and that is what I would do in their place.

    You have a point there, and that's not a good thing.

    This year is generally a lousy year to upgrade—expensive GPUs, expensive RAM, expensive SSDs, and not very good CPU improvements.

    Agreed 100%. That's my biggest concern about Max-Q: it will either displace or raise prices on near-parity cards, especially in the mid-range. We'll see what the landscape looks like when Volta arrives, but I'm not holding my breath.
