    EVGA's GeForce RTX 2060 KO is available for $300 on Amazon

    Recommended the EVGA 2060 KO to a friend of mine who does mostly Solidworks about 10 days ago (he got it for $305...not quite $300, but close enough). He threw it into his system to replace an RX 470 that I originally configured him with. For his usecase, it was a HUGE upgrade and he couldn't...

    I get that. But I was thinking lack of 3950x was due to chiplets being allocated to server parts (where the real $$$ is) That doesn't explain a 12nm 4-core/8-thread part with integrated GPU...hence why I'm still at a loss to explain the 3000G

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    I get there not being 3950x due to 'global shortage'. I don't get the lack of availability of Athlon 3000G. Feels like there's more to the story.

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    1) That's amazon.co.uk...not amazon.com (US). Just searched - not available from Amazon.com 2) The amazon.co.uk listing (that I found) currently lists for $65 vs $49 MSRP. To be fair, I'd have no problems ordering from Amazon.uk if the pricing was comparable (or carried a couple dollar...

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    Oh - I got it. I thought you meant it was shipping from AMD.com to consumers (e.g. that's how I bought my Radeon VII)

    Can you post a link? I searched AMD.com yesterday and today. Nothing.

    Came here to ask about the 3000G. Was looking to grab one for a DIY FreeNAS box. Paper launch. :(

    Microsoft returning to Flight Simulator in 2020

    No, it comes with the Airbus alternate-law feature where the stall warning indicator shuts off the more you pull back on the stick.
