I believe we were talking about mini-ITX?

General topic was the Gigabyte ITX board (and of course there is already the Biostar ITX board), but it was definitely MicroATX that was said. I'll agree that there aren't any X370 ones, which seems strange, but there are plenty of B350 ones.

The program uninstaller troubleshooter would have been helpful for me a few months back, had to change to a alternate program because I couldn't fix it or get rid of it! THanks for the share Allyn.

Gargravarr was the real custodian on that live Vega benchmarking session as it appears to be the result of the processing of a high-resolution scan of a fairy cake. And the various FanBoys(Green and Red) appear to have not been able to come to terms with that Total Perspective Vortex experience and are all now still convenced that gaming is the single most important function of a universe that completely revolves around their single minded delusions of grandeur.

Somehow I suspect that Raja may have done something to that fairy cake to mask any attempts at using the Radeon Vega FE to really gauge any true RX Vega gaming performance metrics until after the SIGGRAPH RX Vega event. And any reviewers that may get, before that RX Vega event, the final RX Vega RTM driver builds will be under NDA's and unable to report on their findings using the proper offical testing drivers that may allow even the Radeon Vega FE to perform better on gaming.

i hope ryan thinks of benching games that AMD used to demo vega with unlocked fps, like Doom, sniper elite 4, and battlefront.
this way he will see if the numbers are consistent with AMD's demos.
can't wait for the review.
