    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    New platform prices are always high when they first come out. X570, DDR4-3600(and up) were stupid expensive when they came out for Zen2+ (3000 series). Just have to wait for B650 to come out and DDR5 prices to come down a bit for the market to equalize. Bleeding edge will always have bleeding...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    Anyone that primarily games has zero reason to buy a 7000 series. A comparable, or mostly faster, gaming system with a 5800X3D will be hundreds of dollars cheaper to build with more readily available parts. AMD also said that the 5800X3D will not be the last X3D part on AM4. Which leaves room...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    Basically, if all you do is game, and are still on an older 3000 series Zen3, then the 5800X3D is the best bang for the buck upgrade. Even a whole Zen3 system will be hard to beat for the money. If you just need to smash through productivity at breakneck speed then the 7950X is the king of the...

    Super People

    Anyone else playing this? It's free on Steam right now for the closed beta. Just apply for instant access. Breakdown: It's like PUBG, but with crafting and abilities. The shooting mechanics are 100% PUBG, so if you need to warm up just use PUBG's training mode. The crafting is for weapons...

    NVIDIA’s Miner vs. AMD’s Whiner - CES 2022

    why is the focus of mining always on ETH? It's only 1 piece of the 1000 piece puzzle of mining. And it's not the most profitable coin to mine right now. Those 4 GB AMD cards will get bought up by miners just the same to be used for other coins.

    New World Amazon's MMO

    They need to unfuck these queues. 2000 slots per server is not going to cut it. How do you sell millions of copies of a game and only have space for a few hundred thousand players? I was lucky and got in yesterday at 8:00 AM, but was kicked at 11:00. Only to find I was 608 in queue which took...

    New World Amazon's MMO

    Most games are like that. 1 week of beta, then 2 days later the game is released with nothing fixed. While I didn't run in to many issues in New World, I'd imagine they are not only fixing bugs. But, also fixing some story line and PvP issues as well. They got a lot of feedback to sift through.

    New World Amazon's MMO

    Maybe reinstall the game or check for overall system stability? I'm on a similar setup and have had no such crashes in 30 hours of game play.

    New World Amazon's MMO

    Even in town I average 100 FPS, no lag. My CPU stays in the 40%ish range.

    New World Amazon's MMO

    9 hours in and I'm enjoying the game. It's ran perfectly smooth for me at 1440P max settings.

    I just queued up. We'll see.

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    I'm a firm believer that both Nvidia and AMD are selling through back channels to Chinese mining card manufacturers since the profit margin is higher. Imagine going to Nvidia and saying you'll take every die they can sell you at 10 points over what they're sold to AIB's for. The mining cards...
