    How Does the GTX 1080 Ti Stack Up in 2020?

    1080Ti overclocked to 2076/12Ghz mem........since I am not gaming much (if any these days) I will only upgrade to 3080Ti just for 4K and move the 1080Ti to my kids PC who play @ 1080p.....

    Volvo Reveals the New Polestar 2 Electric Performance Vehicle

    I don't think this is what he meant by using the term "subscription"......I think he means that you can subscribe for getting/using a car on a monthly fee ONLY*.....instead of buying it.

    Am I the only one who couldn't care less about these foldable phones? Then again I don't care about phones in general and buy one iPhone every 4-5 years when iOS stops updating. I am still on a 6S Plus and don't feel like I am missing something.....I hate small screens for anything serious though..

    "World War Z" Studio: Epic Exclusivity Is "the Best Deal for Players and Developers"

    All this shit with multiple launchers happens because Microsoft could not get their own shit together all these years and make Windows THE gaming platform with their own GAME market where all developers could sell directly. It could be done and MS could afford not to charge more than 5-7%...

    Only Plebs Use Office 2019 over Office 365, Says Microsoft's Weird New Ad Campaign

    I personally find it a great deal to have 6 installations of Office 365 + 6TB OneDrive + The mobile apps for the whole family at only $99.... I guess some people will still nag even if Microsoft gives Office 365 away fro free....well there is a free online version anyway.... I still wonder how...

    I can certainly tell the difference between my WD Gold 10TB and older 5400-7200rpm drives I have..During backups it consistenly achieves about 220mb/s speeds.

    Nvidia is Publishing a Book on Raytracing

    Unless Nvidia realizes that their current pricing is out of touch with reality and the mass market they can start adopting the idea of becoming "book publishers" in order to increase their income... Get off your high horse nVidia - you never were and never will be a Lifestyle Luxury goods...

    32" 4k display for design and 3d work.

    32" 4k display for design and 3d work.

    I don't think it supports VRR (not officially anyway) since it is a professional monitor and 60Hz only....I did not buy it for gaming but work first sine my 30" 2450X1600 failed and was left with a 1080p monitor and could not wait.... I intend to get a second 4K or 1440p monitor too to complete...

    Gigabyte Will Allegedly Lay Off Sales and Marketing Staff

    They all need to get their shit together! I suggest that they do the following summarizing what others said above. - reduce model range to a meaningful number. I.e. 4 models for each chipset MAX - improve quality to reflect prices across the board - Produce software that Actually works (shitty...

    Backup software

    AMEN! I am using the same combo and it never failed me. FreeFileSync is such a great utility that is also actively developed with very frequent updates. It has saved me so many times. The same with Macrium Reflect - great and reliable and worth the price.

    Der8auer Delids a W-3175x

    The 9900K is yet another CPU that also does better delidded + LM but especially for the big dies (9900X-9980X) the situation is worse since you can't delid them easily now without causing damage. The Skylake-X refresh has better stock clocks and possible a more mature process and/or better...

    Der8auer Delids a W-3175x

    Solder is not what it used to be anymore....all new 9XXX 2066 CPUs (& 9900K) perform worse thermally than a delidded CPU with Liquid metal...but better than thermal poo + IHS. Like it or not solder is thick and less than ideal..It's time to start offering bare die CPUs with some protective...

    Windows Audio Is Getting DTS:X and Dolby Atmos Upgrades

    Audio output can be just fine and unlimited in bandwidth using the appropriate pro equipment - it's just not happening with games and to be honest the general population does not give a rat's ass for high quality audio. Most people nowadays do not even have a proper speaker system in their...

    Windows Audio Is Getting DTS:X and Dolby Atmos Upgrades

    ASUS ROG THOR 1200W Power Supply Review @ [H]

    Just check its efficiency curve vs your estimated average daily power usage and make sure that the fan turns off when below that threshold. That is if you care about it of course.

    ASUS ROG THOR 1200W Power Supply Review @ [H]

    Getting a large PSU does not mean you consume more electricity automatically although its efficiency is affected by usage. There are other factors to consider though. For example I bought the Corsair AX1500i not because I need 1500Watts but because it was the best thing out there (before the...

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    I was not being bothered with the latest and greatest hardware for almost 10 years until last January and to my surprise I see the 2560X1440 resolution as being something "in demand" when I had a 2560X1600 30" display 10 years ago. Ridiculous! And I don't care that they are 144Hz now - we...

    GTX 1080 TI Overclocking Results

    Guys, I came down to the same conclusion.....modding the BIOS won't offer anything worthy..... My card stays @ 2000 Core with the waterblock (38C max) even without overclocking....after overclocking I can hit around the same as Ripskin and it all comes down to balancing your Power budget..I.e...

    Gigabyte Z390 Waterforce

    The board has great cooling (even has heatpipes at the back) in the "vanilla" version too without the monoblock and the most efficient VRMs (along with MSI Godlike) out of all Z390 boars. It is also high in price but we should take note of its features that are easily worth $200 if one buys them...

    GTX 1080 TI Overclocking Results

    Hey keep us updated since I was toying with the idea of flashing my Asus Strix 1080Ti OC edition. I run the card at 2083ΜHz core & 6100Mhz Memory and my temps never exceed 38C with full cover waterblock. It looks like the card can go higher but needs some more voltage. However, I also don't...
