    LG to offer G-Sync firmware updates for 2019 OLED TVs

    nVidia is usurping the FreeSync and AdaptiveSync branding by pushing monitor manufactures to to label it GSync Compatible instead. Monitors on both newegg and amazon that were listed as "FreeSync" have had the badging and labeling removed in the advertisement and instead show nVidia GSync...

    AMD Ryzen R9 3900X Review Round Up

    Disappointed in X570. Will probably hold off for X670 or whatever supports USB 4.0 Will stick with my X470 board for now.

    The C64 is a full-sized Commodore 64 reboot, coming December 2019

    I was the other way. I had a Vic20 and thought the C64 a lame update ascetics wise. Ohh, new color :p I jumped all over the C64C and the 1541-II / 1581 drives when they were released.

    NVIDIA: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Ship With RTX Raytracing

    Maybe, by 2077, Ray Tracing may be worth using outside of "making it look pretty" right before turning all that crap off to make the game playable.

    AMD Announces Ryzen 7 3700X, 3800X and Ryzen 9 3900X

    Seems it is being said at chiphell that the AMD Ryzen 3000 series OC frequency limit is ~5GHz. They report that 4.8 GHz all core is achievable. 5.0 GHz single core is doable, but its a challenge. 5.0 GHz all core is pretty much a no-go. 1.35V for all core 4.5GHz 4.4GHz performs similar to a...

    AMD Ryzen 9 3000 is a 16-core Socket AM4 Beast

    Rather have the extra frequency boost of the 12 core (5GHz) than extra cores that I know I have no means to use. I can't even use the 8 I already have at 100% without synthetic benchmarks.

    Ryzen 3000 Eng. Samples @ 4.5 GHz+? / +15% IPC? & AMD X570 chipset gets PCIE 4.0 and USB 3.1 gen2

    Store leaks indicate the 3700X has a turbo of 5GHZ. Looks like ATV was right.

    Anyone use MoCA?

    Are you sure that all non-connected splitter ports and unconnected cables are properly terminated?

    Which RTX 2070 should I pick up?

    Yes, that extra 2 months of play time only cost an additional $250. Spend it if you got it! ;)

    Which RTX 2070 should I pick up?

    At this point, I would just wait for the AMD RX 3080 cards. They will give you RTX 2070 performance for around $250. Or wait for the Navi 20 card, which is supposed to give RTX 2080 +20% performance for $430. Those releases are just around the corner, so no need to pay the nVidia name tax.

    Anyone use MoCA?

    Also make sure you have terminators on all open ports on any cable splitters. (F Type 75 Ohm) Pretty sure you know that you need to have a filter to ensure you aren't leaking your network to the outside as well.

    Help finding new Hardware News Site

    The problem is that they don't provide news updates at the pace that [H] used too. You could go days without any sort of update to the site at all.

    FCC Wants To Cap Spending on Broadband for Poor and Rural Areas

    Starting it with "The giant coffee mug-wielding head of the FCC and his fellow (R)s..." is not the way to avoid a political argument. Tone matters. Giving companies blank checks for 'charity' that has no oversite is basically giving companies a slush fund to use for whatever they want. I rather...

    FCC Wants To Cap Spending on Broadband for Poor and Rural Areas

    So you inject your hateful opinion of what they are "actually doing" regardless of what they stated they are doing. Lobsters? As one of those "[H]ardworking American consumers", I absolutely expect "fiscal responsibility" with money stolen ... err Taxed from me. Feel free to donate more to the...
