What do you guys think?  I'm just a dumb 19A(Armor Officer) in the Army who likes to play video games but this looks pretty cool.

MEh, I have to see it actually do what it says. It takes a big game and I hear its more geared toward designers for now, plus you need to be in 8k to start to take advantage of it and its not like its replacing the vram.

the ssd part will be separate from the gpu itself, so you are talking 2 components and pci lanes for each.

But bypassing the cpu is a pretty big deal IMHO.

And as usual nvidia will have their own answer/tech to this.

cutting out the cpu/system ram middleman is a good idea.

Yeah I know it's more for professional work and not gaming I just thought that it seemed pretty cool. Hopefully AMD can do more on the gaming and CPU front so it cause Nvida and intel to work harder and compete more.
