My rig: ASUS TUF FX504GD (Intel i5 8300H @ 2.8-4.0 GHz, 8 GB DDR4-2666 RAM, Nvidia GTX 1050, 256 GB M.2 SSD+256 GB 1 TB SATA III SSD as storage, Windows 10 Home)

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel.

Running FSX-SE as my primary sim, finally, 13 years after FSX's release. Also running FS9 and XP11 Vulkan. What do I do with 3 sims now?

Ford is better than Chevy. Ferrari is better that Lamborghini. And Sophia is better looking than Gina. So there!

I can tell you've never driven a Ferrari. If you ever go to Monaco take the opportunity to drive the F1 course in a Ferrari (not cheap but it's available). That will change your mind....

Do you mean Ford v. Ferrari? Yes, I've seen it several times. I love that movie. I've talked with Carroll Shelby a couple time over the years. I was the fuel man for Ed Leslie's Shelby Cobra team in the early 1960's. I even owned a Shelby 500 Mustang for a while (marriage ended that). I drove Chuck Weber's Berlinetti Boxer for a few laps around Laguna Seca and that was one of the greatest memories of my life. As I said, you really need to drive a Ferrari........Stay safe.........

The problem for AMD is not how good there product is but numbers,  they have never had more than 20% of the market and now they don't have there own FAB supply will hold them back, as most third party FABs are working flat out for mobile hardware that's growing faster than PC hardware.

PS and Game console hardware that`s taking priority at the moment for AMD.

I wonder what percentage of the market AMD had back in the days of their FX57 cpu.  That thing was a great cpu for flight sims.

I used AMD Sapphire back in early 2000 when it was the fastest but more expensive than Intel, but even then it never had more than 20%, they had their own FABs back then then Intel took over and they sold the FABs, to get to 50% even,it would take billions of investment in new FABs, big risk PC hardware market shrinking motherboard sales down Q4 2019.
