    As others have said, selling pretty much everything they can make so no point in discounts. Can expect 7000 series to be another price jump because of that.

    God no. That wouldn't be a good idea either. If he took over, we'd have another Battlestar Galactica. I know this goes against the grain, but that was a shit show. Awful pacing, bad writing and horrendous character arcs. Everyone on the ship was...

    Have to agree. They need to get rid of Kurtzman. They’re messing up worse than DC. At least Star Wars is being rehabilitated with the TV. There are a couple of episodes of Discovery that were very good but that’s it in 4 years. Picard was...

    This is a fair point. Not every episode of the classic shows were winners. However, I'd take almost any TNG episode over anything STD has to offer. That being said, Voyager: Thresholds and the Enterprise finale are particularly bad and I'm not...

    Iratus reacted to ND40oz's post in the thread Samsung 34" QD-OLED with Like Like.
    We didn't move directly from 4:3 to 16:9, we moved to 16:10. Then TV panels all started coming in 16:9 and screwed the monitor standard up in the process.

    Iratus reacted to Ducrider748's post in the thread Anyone RMA'd a card recently? with Like Like.
    I have been a EVGA owner for a long time and always register my products shortly after purchase. Even if it's second hand. A hand written receipt has worked before on a second hand purchase. My suggestion on a purchase is to get it registered...

    Iratus replied to the thread Anyone RMA'd a card recently?.
    I did EVGA in December. Got a card from Taiwan in 2 days. Given flight times I thought that was crazy.

    it is in fact worse. What people refer to as woke is incredibly ham fisted, in and of itself nothing offends or bothers me. I loved Sense8 for example but it’s just shit writing. To the point of being detrimental. I think I’m done, Picard was...

    Literally today bought a 7.5m active DisplayPort cable so I can move my PC far enough behind me to give the air con time to pull the heat away. It’s a 120 year old full brick house with 10 foot ceilings so it’s not like I can go punching holes...

    I’d be happy if my next graphics card used less than the 400+w my 3090 does. If it ended up using more I’m gonna have to do some thinking. Sick of how hot my study gets

    Iratus replied to the thread Safe adhesive on pcb?.
    Bit tricky atm as it's on water. It's one of the mount points on the cpu socket that the cooler goes into, I'm just rocking it with 3 pins installed at the moment. Works 'ok' apart from a few cores with higher temperature. Have work to do so...

    Iratus posted the thread Safe adhesive on pcb? in Motherboards.
    I had a screw post come free on a threadripper board (zenith ii extreme alpha). I was using the torque driver obviously, but it just snapped off when I put my Optimus block on. After just living with the warmer cores on a couple of ccds for a...

    Iratus reacted to paradoxical's post in the thread Apple leaks M1 Max Duo, and M1 Ultra with Like Like.
    What you don't seem to understand - probably because you do not do any actual high performance computing outside of gaming - is that the RTX series of video cards are not just "gaming cards." I have four RTX 2080 TI and they have never once...

    Latency is twice as high too I had problems with Sandisk drives before, maybe have a look at the smart data and see if there’s stuff showing. If that looks fine then do a firmware update and finally you can do a proper wipe on it can sometimes...

    Pretty much all you can get now too. Compatibility with any Zen 3 versions is unknown. It’s likely, but anything aimed at business use (ie the mobos) doesn’t generally expect people to upgrade. You just depreciate and bin it.

    Iratus reacted to bwang's post in the thread Question about Threadripper Pro processors with Like Like.
    TR Pro was released to the channel a while back. It's important to note, however, that they are neither Threadrippers nor compatible with TRX40 motherboards - rather, they are EPYCs (8 channels, 128 PCI-e lanes) with higher clocks and a few lanes...

    Iratus replied to the thread Intel 7700k to AMD 5900x.
    I went from 7700k to 3960X and I was actually surprised how much of a difference it made in day to day snappiness of general office and windows stuff, not just the work stuff I bought it for. I imagine the Zen 3 stuff would be that and then some.

    I think that’s nonsense, it’s all down to the company’s themselves. There are Chinese and British companies with extraordinary quality, just as there are some that are absolute shit. You’re just less able to do low margin low quality stuff on...

    It’s what investors require of you. Get people in and then crank the screws. I imagine someone will just have been seeing how much they can trim down the vgpu allocation until people squeal. If a fuss gets kicked up, say it was a mistake and...

    You don’t really have much choice to use assemblies etc, the tolerances on modern devices are insane. It’s not like getting a waterproof computer arguably more powerful than a circa 2013 desktop, in a device weighing a couple of hundred grams...
