    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    My current card, the RTX 2070. I have it for 3 years now, tied with the 980 Ti in longevity, but with no signs of being able to replace it anytime soon. Even today, I literally cannot buy a card of similar performance for what I bought the RTX 2070 back in 2018. Still kicking myself for not...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Why would anyone install a beta version of Windows without waiting for at least a year of patches? This should be common sense by now, then again I am old enough to have used every version of Windows since 3.0.

    In that case, why wouldn't you just get an EVO?

    Windows 11 leak reveals new UI, Start menu, and more (UPDATE - added source for Windows 10 retirement date)

    Personally, while I loathed the UI, I liked Windows 8.1 for its speed and resource management. Windows 8.1 with Classic Start = winner.

    Bitcoin value cut in half as cryptocurrencies tumble in weekend slide 05-24-2021

    Crypto is only good for criminals like drug cartels and ransomware creators, as well as for rogue governments like North Korea, Iran, Venezuela and now Myanmar to bypass economic sanctions and stay in power. The civilized world believes in transparency and accountability (Glasnost, dare I say!)

    What is your backup GPU?

    980 Ti in my secondary rig, as well as an R9-280X.

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I play games with laughably low graphic requirements like Factorio, though fortunately thanks to my 2070 I can also afford playing Subnautica: Below Zero, Transport Fever 2, or Satisfactory maxed out at 1080p. I still have a full HD monitor and probably would have got at least a 1440p one if I...

    AMD’s upcoming flagship GPUs should be 3x faster than RX 6900XT

    Might as well be 1000x faster, I'm keeping my 2070 at this point. Screw both AMD and nVidia for treating their customers the way they've been doing it for the past year!

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti’s GA102-225 GPU Leaked

    At this point they can keep it. And I'll keep my 2070 for yet another year.

    300 Nvidia GPUs Seized After High Speed Boat Chase

    Sounds like a fun mission for GTA 6, or Sleeping Dogs 2 since we're talking about Hong Kong.

    NVIDIA PCI-Express Resizable BAR Performance Test - 22 Games, 3 Resolutions, RTX 3090, 3080, 3070, 3060 Ti

    Which CPUs does this work on? And am I correct in assuming they aren't going to bother retrofitting it for Turing.

    China's factory recovery slows in January as COVID-19 returns

    Maybe allowing international flights out of Wuhan back in January last year, even while banning domestic ones, was not such a great idea after all.

    NVIDIA to Re-introduce GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 SUPER GPUs

    That's so true. Thankfully, Samsung has released the VA Odyssey G7 at 1440P with a 240 Hz refresh rate. Unfortunately there are no graphics cards available to drive that resolution and refresh rate.
