I'd wait. Just a couple months and the new offerings from both are large leaps. 7nm+ is a good jump from 7nm both CPU and GPU wise.

Yep never wait on tech.


I agree with this statement usually but being so close to basically 3 major launches I would just wait it out. Arent the GPU upgrades supposed to be pretty huge?

Can he get 2070 super performance for $350? That remains to be known, so don't wait on speculation and get what you can now

In a few months I would imagine he could get 2070 super performance for cheaper. I would guess that there are more than a couple of people who purchased supers with the intention of buying a 3000 series once they released

The other issue is... The mining craze is supposed to come back this year too... Which could completely frick up graphics card prices.

CPUs thankfully are not impacted, but anything ITX related right now is already fairly expensive, including power supplies and motherboards, and its hard to find them in stock.

Keep buying both too. AMD is looking at $100/s by end of '21.

I sound smart (at less in my head) when I thought about things like AMD, NVDA, MU, and TSMC. At less I feel like I can explain why certain things happen in/are happening in that sector.

Yesterday I was riding a high when I saw TSMC soaring pre-market along with AMD. I've been telling the buddies to jump on both before the end of the year.

I feel soo dumb in this stuff, but yeah, I'm looking at some put options for Nvidia, just in case any of the ARM rumors come true.

AMD earnings call outpaces projections. Stock soars another 10% largely thanks to EPYC server chips.

quote:

Shares surged more than 10% after hours, following a 2% decline in the regular session to close at $67.61, and were ahead of AMD’s intraday record of $71.63, set late last week. After leading the S&P 500 index SPX in annual percentage gains in both 2018 and 2019, AMD stock has increased more than 47% so far in 2020 as the S&P has slipped 0.4%.
