This episode: Ryzen and the gaming numbers, Middle Earth is back

Today’s Episode

The AMD Ryzen chips launched this week to some interesting benchmarks. The funny thing is the benchmarks are not bad for gaming, they are not better than Intel. Every benchmark I have read has the frame rates above 60 frames per second. It’s weird seeing people flip out over nothing. They are not the best benchmarks, but, they are better than the previous CPUs.

The most exciting thing is Middle Earth is getting a sequel. Yes, more information was released on the sequel. Let’s hope they do not mess it up! Find out more gaming news down below.

Highlights from the Show:

This overblown Ryzen is not good, is stupid.

I really hope they are allowed to still make the Indiana Jones remake

The 1080 ti is an absurd card. There is no reason to buy it.
