    [AMD] AMD shows more gaming benchmarks on RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT, at 4K and 1440p.

    This logic makes a lot of sense but it never held true for any game that was multi platform.

    Logitech Hero sensor upgraded from 16k DPI to 25k

    Well I have to say, DPI is only part of the equation. Windows also has "mouse speed" which is a multiplier (I guess). The numbering 1-20 does not make much sense. I normally use 500 and Windows sensitivity 10. If I set it to 5500 and 1 sens, you'd think the EDPI would be the same but it does not...

    Logitech Hero sensor upgraded from 16k DPI to 25k

    Does anyone use more than say 2000 dpi? These upgrades have not made a difference to me in at least 15 years.

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    I try to reboot my desktop as least as possible. I load a ton of apps and tabs on different virtual desktops and then put it to sleep when I walk away. I used to run an RX580 and an RX470 and some other AMD card before that. It would often not resume from sleep (the system seemed to but the...

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    Well I hope this means it will be a card that is in demand. Judging by the Steam surveys, no one cares about AMD cards. I use them (well used to until a this year) but the Steam survey show than something like 10% of people use AMD cards. NVIDIA could really use some competition at the mid to...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Does anyone know if there will be a consumer version? Like a 2-300$ version? I have a 1660 Super and I am not looking at paying twice what it cost as a replacement.

    Silverstone SG14 is coming in July!

    I watched the video from above. This thing is way too big and that is a common problem with mITX cases. They all assume you will be spending $2000 on a GPU so they are unnecessarily long to support said GPU. I've gone though a few cases and I currently use a NZXT h210. I think it is the best out...

    Do you think we'll get thunderbolt in next gen microsoft?

    It is anyone's guess. I know a lot of people complain about it and MS knows it. They are slow to implement new features so there is that.

    Belkin Thunderbolt dock with slow PD

    My wife bought a Belkin Thunderbolt dock for her Macbook 16" (still to arrive). I have an MSI Prestige 15 (current model). This MSI supports Thunderbolt 3 and the charger I normally use is USB-C. I tried the dock on this MSI computer and almost everything works as it should. Once the connection...

    Silverstone SG14 is coming in July!

    Looks good. The SG13 was too small for any real airflow. Also, I had to grind off a piece of metal to make it work. Eventually went back to a tower mITX case.

    Microsoft Game Pass Ultimate ($150 or less for 3 years - as low as $100)

    I did this 6-12 months ago. Stocked up on gold for three years and converted it for $1. It was a great deal.

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    I am amazed that anyone in their right mind would pay more than $50 total for a 939 board. Replacement or not. You can buy full off lease systems for $150 that are more powerful.

    The lack of leaks is interesting.

    Intel 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake" & Xe Graphics Launch Event: Live Blog

    Years ago, Intel said they would support Freesync in the future. I has been 3-5 years since then and no one seems to remember.
