    I Bought an RTX 3060 Ti Today!

    Building computer for little brother

    Nvidia's Plan for ARM to Take X86 's Throne | Exclusive

    Reading some of these posts as well, I just want to point out, we all like to refer to our computers as "fast". They are slow AF. Challenger Hellcat is fast. F22 is fast. Falcon Rockets are fast. Computers don't move. # of operations per second is relative and extremely complex based on...
