    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    I have to agree with this from first hand experience. I installed 10Gbit wired network in my new house and I have a mix of connections due to cost... The 10Gbit connections I can't even come close to maxing out. Actually, my 4 Disk RAID array doesn't even reliably hit 5Gbit on transfers...

    How much power do you need these days?

    It's not delivering 1,000 watts all day long. Having the capability is one thing, drawing it all is another. I always shoot a little (or a lot) higher in my choice of power supply so I cover my ass in case I do something crazy during the life cycle of the system I build. I just picked up a...

    AMD introduces Radeon RX 5600 XT for 279 USD

    I never said AMD was doomed, I have been saying that my opinions are based off of the Intel Juggernaut vs the underdog. I believe that I pretty clearly state my doubts about AMD, however, I have these doubts because of real world facts. Half the people on here are banner waving, card...

    How much power do you need these days?

    I like Platinum a lot. However, that's what typically gets me. I get most of that "theoretical" efficiency in the Gold and for half the price. 234.99 219.99...

    New AMD ES GPU beats 2080Ti by 17% on OpenVR GPU Benchmark leaderboard

    I'm pretty certain that they can do better than a 15 FPS uplift... If Nvidia manages the 25% uplift they did last generation (on average) They would be sitting at around 110 FPS given this example. If they pull off 50%, which they have done in the past, they would be sitting at around 132 FPS...

    New AMD ES GPU beats 2080Ti by 17% on OpenVR GPU Benchmark leaderboard

    If it's only 15 FPS faster than a 2080Ti... It's totally too little, too late. Unless they price it accordingly. I see AMD punching out this card for 800-1000 bucks while they can, and then Nvidia gut punching them a couple months later. Only time will tell

    How much power do you need these days?

    If I am in doubt and I want a mid to high end rig I typically pickup an 850 Watt Seasonic Gold PS. I have two of these and I have never experience a single hiccup even with OC'ing and running a 2080Ti. The 750 here should be more than you ever need and the quality is simply excellent...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Unless it's paired with Intel Systems in the OEM market that don't include a GPU on them. Might see it a lot more than expected in cases like that.

    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    I had one of these and it was garbage from day one. I think it went right into the Garbage as well...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Given additional research, It would appear that Intel doesn't require patents from AMD or Nvidia to make GPUs and that the Nvidia deal was for something else entirely. The AMD cross license was only for a singular GPU...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    I posted in giant sized fonts to draw attention to where the rumor came from in the first place (Kyle). So, is Kyle Bennet a moron by your logic? I guess I will just wait for Kyle to chime in on this one. He has a habit of being correct when he reports rumors. His rumors are typically well...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Done deal We can now confirm the rumours that Intel has given up on Nvidia because it has written a cheque to license AMD's graphics. It looks like veteran GPU editor Kyle Bennet was right when he first reported the rumor, however wild it sounded. We didn't contemplate it but wrote about it...

    Anyone give up on PC Surround sound and just go stereo? Any regrets?

    I have a 5.1 setup in my office and I love the hell out of it. My audio processor is a smallish Yamaha 5.1 HT AMP. Until it dies I will likely continue to rock that setup. I use a pair of Klipsch Bookshef speakers, a BIC Center and 2 Klipsch Surround Speakers paired with a 10" Infinity Sub in...

    Portable keyboards?

    Not exactly portable, however, I own three of these bad boys and they are pretty damn sweet (and backlit): What you lose in portability you gain in responsiveness, and if you want to lug the lapboard with it...
