    AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT ‘RDNA 2 Refresh’ Graphics Cards Rumored For Q2 2022: Navi 21 & 22 GPUs With 18 Gbps Memory

    This is a topic that exposes peoples fanboy team. :) The last rebrand / refresh that I can think of is the RX-480 / 580 / 590. I mean perhaps you could say that the 1070 TI which was essentially just a 1080 with GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X. Some of the super cards in the 20 series could be just...

    5800X3D gaming review

    I have not seen any reviews using Civilization or similar turn based strategy game turn processing time benchmarks. These types of games are pretty much the only reason why I upgrade my CPU at this point.

    AMD asks mobo makers to remove OC options for 5800X3D

    Indeed sometimes the performance “gains” are negative with manual overclocks…

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Memtest64 is a fairly easy to use tool to check the ram. Another safe way to check the ram is to set it to stock speeds 2166 and see if the errors go away. After reading the thread I am pretty sure eventually you will need a clean install of windows.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @

    What I don’t know is how close is the MSRP is to the BOM. One of the things we have heard is that it is “impossible” to sell at MSRP because the BoM cost is too close to the MSRP for the AIB to make their margins. We have no way of knowing if this is true or not. MLiD has done some reporting...

    Google loses patent case against Sonos, will remove features from Nest and Chromecast products

    It really is not easy to do what Sonos did. Changing the relative volume on multiple wireless speakers that are not being driven by a connected amp and getting the sound from each device to be sync’s and not drift is not trivial. Try playing the same song on multiple devices at the same time...

    i7 7700k to i7 12700k worth it ?

    100% don’t need windows 11 for 12th gen. It runs just fine on windows 10. Their are compatibility issues with some older denovo games. You can work around this with most motherboards by disabling E-cores. Don’t need DDR5 either. Buy a DDR4 board and an 12600k or 12700k if you want to stay with...

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    It is “easy” to create images with the same hash. It’s called a collision I believe. I agree that randomly having the same hash is rare, but people will intentionally create collisions to muck it up.

    I think I topped out at 601K free. It was crazy how the boot order mattered to final size of the tsr programs. “Loadmemhigh”
