    Philips Momentum 328M1R 31.5" 4k 120Hz

    I don't understand a thing you just wrote. What do you mean by this sentence? Anyone else looking forward to this monitor? I have a widescreen; but its only 100Hz, looking to step into 120Hz and HDR; and higher res for productivity work. This new philips seems like the only option and its not...

    3900x issue

    No thats great to test the undervolting limits; however we're just saying you might not find a traditional floor where the processor stops working; because the CPU is very aware of its power situation and will adjust itself and stretch clocks out if it doesn't have what it needs; doing so...

    3900x issue

    Keep in mind that zen 2 works a bit differently from what I understand; you might lower voltage and your clocks might look still ok; but your performance will be dropping. This is due to "clock stretchers". Be sure to benchmark as you drop voltage to see when your performance starts to drop off...

    3900x issue

    That sounds like many other's experiences; although many think that boost voltage is too high; and it is currently being researched by AMD. Are you running a fresh copy of windows? I'll be interested to hear if once you get steam and all of your normal programs running if your chip still drops...

    3900x issue

    That's reassuring to hear; but do you also agree that there is still definitely an issue? Der Bauer's latest video talks about how ryzen 3000 is incredibly efficient at idle; and can even acheive idle at 0.2 volts; yet at stock settings in windows are seeing high idle frequencies associated with...

    3900x issue

    Same here on my 3900x & Aorus Master.... I was just going to leave this CPU at stock and just focus on memory overclocking; but it is out of control from a voltage perspective. I've tried all the supposed "fixes", changing cpu volts from auto to "normal" (this did reduce voltage by a tiny bit...

    Intel Teases Its New Intel Graphics UI

    I might be remembering this wrong; but I remember back circa 2006-2008 or so when Intel ran its mouth about how they would put NVIDIA out of business in graphics with larrabee, decade+ later and they can't even compete. Would be nice if they did though.... GPUs are way too expensive. somewhat of...

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    In addition to Auto Wipers, there is still a physical button to engage wipers (I don't know why everyone continues to report that it doesn't.) It is also context aware, so the second you hit the wiper button, the OSD section shows you wiper speed options. And yes, you can use muscle memory to...

    Microsoft Launches New Surface Devices

    Surely is.... If you have no need for GPU operations, should be a good performance upgrade from a cpu processing perspective. If you are a user that has an interest in graphically accelerated programs and bought this thinking it the 8th gen i7 graphics would be at least as fast if not faster...

    Microsoft Launches New Surface Devices

    The issues nobody is talking about: -The i7 in the SP6 no longer includes iris graphics which should result in it being only ~50% as fast as the previous gen for graphics -They no longer include Windows 10 Pro and are only providing "Home" (Why is it the Surface "Pro" then?) -Still no...

    Valve Is "Very Aware" of Half-Life 3 Jokes, Hints at "More Things" Coming

    Put up or Shut Up is how my BS meter is wired. Don't run your mouth until you have reasonable evidence to support your claim. Same issue I have with Elon Musk lately, despite being a fan of his accomplishments.

    Alita: Battle Angel Official Trailer

    The eyes actually aren't as creepy as the teaser from a few months ago... they look slightly less bulgy than before and slightly more realistic.

    Meet The 10 Winners of GoFly Phase I

    I agree with you. I hate to be a skeptic, but a lot of these designs are just bad... 50% look like they won't actually be able to fly; or wont have the stability to make the VTOL transition from lifting off the ground to forward motion. 75% look incredibly dangerous to the rider or at the very...

    Developer: “There Is Absolutely No Adoption for the Windows Store”

    Good to hear; you can see how microsoft has scared most people away from the store in general so that we don't even realize these options exist... Does it identify somehow when browsing the store if it is a win32 or uwp app?
