"If you purchase a new Ryzen 5 or 7 APU, or a RX 560, 570 or 580"

Ryzen 5 or 7 APU? When did any Zen/Ryzen APUs arrive and was I in a trance and missed the Zen/Vega APUs arriving.

I do hope that the Zen/Vega mobile APUs arrive with some HBM2 support, or if lacking HBM2 on the first ineration, that they come with some eDRAM of at least 500MB-1GB so the graphics will not be starved of bandwidth. How is Vega's HBCC supposed to work without any HBM2 acting as a last level cache? So if the first Zen/Vega APUs lack HBM2 then maybe AMD will have included 500MB-1GB of eDRAM cache for its first generation of Zen/Vega APUs.

Shame that I'm always an early buyer, I never get anything with my GPUs :( (I have an RX480, got 0 stuff with it)

Well just purchase an RX 580 and you could probably sell that RX 480 to some crazy miner for around the same price that the 580 costs and then you can get in on all the gaming deals.

Hell Buying a RX480 or 580/other RX SKU is almost like buying stocks as the pricing of GPUs sure goes up and down based on the Miners and other users of GPU compute. So maybe you can recoupe most of your 480 investment if you find a miner that will pay even more for your RX 480 than you initally did! GPUs are crazy that way now in these crazy GPU as compute times that we are now in, and that GPU compute market is not going away it's here to stay!

Look at that Crazy Ranting GamersNexus Guy, ranting About AMD's MSRP that AMD legally can not enforce for Trade Law reasons. And he may become completely Bald from pulling out those long locks of hair in his eternally bad AMD MSRP bad hair day. GPUs are sure a lot like pork bellies and there is money to be made from those miners who mine, even with that RX 480 that you have.

The "S" In MSRP means suggested, and it's illegial for AMD to try and enforce any price on the retailers! So rant away GN-Rant-O-Sorous-REX, but market demand sets the market price as stated in that Economics 101 class that most gamers where too busy playing their game-boys to notice in the classroom while that part of the lecture was going on!

You missed the tag I added when free writing it free.

September 14, 2017 | 07:13 AM - Posted by Irishgamer01

You have to pay cash for everything in this game.
So to say its free is crazy.
So much so it shocked me.

I uninstalled it after 30 minutes.
