    RTX 3060 12GB

    So... very near 1080ti performance with 30% lower power consumption and DLSS / RT. The only downside is actual retail price which can't be blamed squarely on Nvidia. Seems like a solid card... when its available at MSRP.

    Make Intel great again? Intel Rocket lake i7-11700 processor review!

    AMD will need to get a cheaper 8 core part out soon. The 10700F looks to be 5800x performance at 5600x price. I would think that they could finally divert some production away from their SOCs that were taking priority.

    Xbox Series S

    Really cool backwards compatibility frame rate doubling (and even quadrupling!) of some older games. 3 out of the 5 games were only coded for One S, so they will be in the 900/1080p range. That said, going from an unstable 30 fps to a locked 60 fps really brings life to some of these older...

    Best Gaming CPU for $300

    Considering the price of the entire system, it is not that much cheaper and you lose over 25% cpu power.

    NVIDIA is now resupplying 4-year old GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Pascal GPUs to AIBs

    Guess it makes sense. Still better than an APU and there was never a GTX 2030 or GTX 3030 card. My LP 1050ti still works well for older games at 1080p and the nvenc is a great match with AMD CPUs.

    At $230, the 10700F has to be the ultimate gaming value right now. https://www.techpowerup.com/278430/intel-apparently-discounting-10th-gen-cpus-in-bid-to-claw-market-from-amd#comments

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    It would really be a shame if Cezanne didn't make it to DIY. It has the potential of taking on TGL-U/H as well as RKL-S. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-ryzen-7-pro-5750g-zen-3-apu-reaches-475ghz-all-cores Zen3 cores, 4.75ghz, Renoir-like FCLK speeds, increased cache, and a respectable...

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    More Cezanne-H goodness with a more popular cpu. Intel launched TGL-H in "special edition" but it is just a 4 core cpu!

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    If you know the power consumption of the application (w) and the battery rating (w/h) you should be able to math it relatively close.

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    Cezanne H series desktops dominates as expected and Asus even managed to stuff it in a 13" ultrabook. TGL is expected to get an 8 core part to replace the 8 core CML-H eventually, but for now, AMD is dominates on all mobile form factors.
