    EA Frostbite engine and FIFA 2021 source code allegedly stolen in hack

    Cheating is rampant in BF1. Some friends and I have started playing it again in the last week and I have been shocked that I would say that about 33% of servers I join have someone on the other team who is 150-0. There is no in game report system which seems terrible.

    A pcie 3.0 M2 drive should work in a 4.0 slot right?

    I'm using integrated graphics, no dedicated gpu. BIOS is the latest version.

    A pcie 3.0 M2 drive should work in a 4.0 slot right?

    Nope. It only shows up if it's in the 3.0 slot.

    A pcie 3.0 M2 drive should work in a 4.0 slot right?

    Hmm, it's the Hyper socket that isn't working and that excerpt might mean that that socket will only work with an 11th gen Intel cpu.

    A pcie 3.0 M2 drive should work in a 4.0 slot right?

    New build using a Asrock H570M Pro4 LGA 1200 and Intel 10700K. Board won't see Inland Premium 1TB m2 ssd in the 4.0 slot, only in the 3.0 slot. I know the 10700K can't do 4.0, but I figured it could use the 4.0 slot as 3.0. Am I wrong or is there something wrong with the board?

    GPU for photo editing?

    What I really want to know is how big of an improvement is having a gpu like a 2060 vs CPU only. Like, there is a very small gain from a 2060 to a 2080ti, but what if there was no GPU used for acceleration.

    GPU for photo editing?

    So I've been tasked with putting together a desktop for a family member that is getting serious about professional photography. I'm told that Lightroom and Photoshop are the primary software used. I believe that Lightroom can make use of a GPU and maybe Photoshop to some lesser extent, but have...

    Newb to cell phones... wife wants something cheap & simple

    The OP hasn't really clarified what he wants. He said rings and takes messages but also asked about data plans which suggests interest in a smartphone.

    Newb to cell phones... wife wants something cheap & simple

    Yup, I got that phone for my mom a few weeks ago when her old g4 started to lose battery capacity. It's stupid that a budget phone has a bigger battery than most flagships. My only complaint is that it took me a while to figure out how to restore the on screen home and back buttons. I'm sure...

    Will an unlocked 5G phone work on Verizon's 5G network?

    To my knowledge there are several pieces here. 1st, Verizon's 5g uses different tech than other carriers which is why the Verizon version of 5g phones tends to cost extra (S20 FE was like $50 more for the Verizon version). So there is the compatibility aspect. Second, Verizon frequently does...

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    The addition of seasons has brought some life to D3 for me. The ability to get a class set without having to grind gives a reason to play a new character with a new build.

    The Verge: Westworld showrunners are creating a Fallout show for Amazon

    Hmmm.... We'll see. I have some concerns about making a show, which will require a plot, from a game series where the plot is frequently inconsequential to the actual game. I feel like the only way this would work would be if they ignored things from the point of view of the main charactors of...

    New Star Wars movie to be made by Ragnarok director

    How about a film featuring wookies, and only wookies, without subtitles?

    New Star Wars movie to be made by Ragnarok director

    I would contribute to crowdfunding for HBO to do the Thrawn trilogy as a series, and then I would pay for a HBO subscription to watch it.

    I don't know about the comparison, but Microcenter sells their drives through Amazon as well (a few dollars more but with prime shipping).
