    NVIDIA on the Cause of RTX 2080 Series Card Failures

    Unless Nvidia is pushing the limits on this memory, isn't this ultimately Micron's fault? .

    Learning Solidworks?

    Having used quit a few different CAD programs over the years, AutoCAD, CADD4, ProE, SolidWorks, and CATIA, I found SolidWorks to be the easiest one to learn and use. If you already have CAD experience, you can learn it on your own easily. If you have no CAD, or even drafting experience, then...

    Kangaroo Plus (Windows 7 install possible?)

    I have a retail version of Windows 7 Ultimate, so would it at least do a very basic install, enough in order to upgrade to Windows 10?

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    DEC was way ahead of everyone else, and were taken over and torn apart, solely for their technology, w/everyone bleeding them of it, and their staff. One could only imagine where they would of been today, if they were to have continued on. 128 bit perhaps? They were already running 64 bit when...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Actually, in my opinion, it is the memory which is way behind, technology wise. The SSD's and GPU's are moving right along. With the memory chips, they don't presently run at the same speeds as the CPUs do. Intel's latest supported CPU memory speeds are presently running from 1600 to 1866 MHz...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Certainly there is no question about it when it comes to their GPU's. Their R9 290X is suppose to faster than Nvidia's GeForce GTX Titan. It'll be interesting what they price it at. Rumors have them selling for around $600, while the Titan's run presently at around $1000. I look forward to...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    At the time, Intel's were quite expensive. It was the AMD x64 Dual Cores, that were a threat to Intel, w/them not having anything to compete against them, both in price and technology. Remember too, they ended up licensing AMD's x64. The only x64 bit chip that they had at the time was their very...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Be it a fluke, or they were simply ahead, technology wise, either way, it helped us, the consumer, at the time, and it would be nice if they kept that pressure on Intel. This would help us all, both in price and new technology, whether you like AMD or Intel. Like I said earlier, look at AMD's...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    First of all, that's overclocked. Second, you've got to remember, the 2500K, which is a Socket 1155 CPU, only has two memory channels, vs. the four of the Socket 2011. That should impede it's performance against the 8320, which I would imagine, is a four channel. How would an AMD 3.5 GHz 8320...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again, when it comes to their CPU's? For a short period of time, AMD CPU's were ahead of Intel, when it came to affordable overall performance, w/multi-core CPU's, supporting 64 bit software, and memory performance w/an on chip memory controller...

    How are you guys liking Windows 8 so far?

    I went and loaded Windows 8 Pro today on my Alienware X51. On occasion it tends to come up w/some kind of error for some reason, causing it to have to restart. My hardware is only a few months old, and so is up to date. After using the OS for a while, I had to see if I could find a program...

    GM Suspends Chevy Volt Production after Poor Sales

    We're probably talking about a disposable car, that once the batteries go, won't be cost effective to fix. .

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview to be released 02/29/2012

    Personally, I don't like it. :( Talk has it, that there will be several different versions of the OS when released, more than what's available w/Windows 7, w/each having some features that another doesn't. Myself, I would like a clean and efficient one, w/no absolutely useless bells and...

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview to be released 02/29/2012

    As I read here, everyone claims to be a know it all. That's fine, and I'm sure many of you do know something more than someone else. :rolleyes: Now try to look at Windows 8 from the perspective of a totally ignorant, new user. Now how do you like Windows 8 from that perspective? .

    GM Suspends Chevy Volt Production after Poor Sales

    To add to this, why couldn't they have designed a car would could be expanded w/more battery modules, and thus longer range, later, as prices come down? .
