    Anyone actually have a 650 or 650E Board yet?

    My feelings are that NVME 5.0 is about as relevantly useful as PCIE x16 5.0. ie Not. The only difference for me (and why I prioritize PCIE x16 5.0) is that over the lifespan of the motherboard there is a realistic chance that I upgrade the video card 2 to 3 generations from now (5-6 years)

    Using DDR5 with XMP profiles on AM5?

    Going to tag on here since its right in the wheelhouse of a question I had.... Is there a consensus as to which kit would be better (both EXPO kits from G.SKILL).... 64GB CL32-38-38-96 or 64GB CL30-40-40-96

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Ideally a FE, but realistically I am looking at either a Gigabyte Windforce or an MSI Suprim X which have much better (but not good) availability.

    Who else is waiting on Zen 4 x3D before upgrading?

    Just start socking away $50 a month...:p

    Who else is waiting on Zen 4 x3D before upgrading?

    By and large, no. There may be an application or two that benefits from the massive cache but they would be few and far between. In fact, in general these processors will very likely trail the non 3D parts, just like last gen, for productivity apps.

    4000 Series Shortage?

    i have to ask... why do you want a 4080 class card for 1080P?

    4000 Series Shortage?

    guessing you’re in Europe? 4090’s are non-existant in Canada and not much better in the USA and it’s rather frustrating.

    AMD 7900 GPU series reviews are up.

    A little disappointed if I am being honest. Was hoping/expecting it would distinguish itself by pulling a little further away from the 4080 and more firmly entrenching itself between the 4080 and 4090 in raster. As it stands its basically 4080 tier raster (faster in a couple of outliers...

    Are there likely going to be new AM5 mobos released when Zen X3D releases?

    Cheaper and better is a thing of the past my friend. Pick one.

    Has anyone checked out the new season 4 of Fortnite? Insane with an RTX 4090...

    Kind of mind boggling how this game can eat a 4090. As a prospective buyer of a 4090 i kind of now find myself stepping back and maybe considering a cheaper/stop gap card if UE5 games are going to make me want a faster(?!!) gpu in a couple of years. Or maybe the problem is I shouldnt buy a 4K...

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Just supply and abiliy to resupply. Neither amd nor nvidia have a strong track record of this over the last few years obviously…

    Anybody plan on grabbing one of the new RX7xxx Navi cards on launch?

    Wonder if the AIB's are going to muck this product launch up. AIB Card costs out of China are putting the XTX within a few hundred of 4090's. Which would be a complete non-starter if that holds true here in NA. If a 7900XTX is going to cost me $250 to $300 under a 4090, I'm just going to get...

    new glossy monitor like the Dell s2415h? Any exist?

    Short answer: No Slightly longer answer: https://www.dough.tech/pages/spectrum-monitors but not sure if they are actually shipping product yet and the company has a bit of a history with regards to failed promises, constant and significant delays etc.
