    First leaked zen 3 benchmarks

    The 5800 jump from 3700x is more than 50% bigger (+39%) Not sure if it is a situation like they said that at 16 core with just 2 memory channel they start to be ram bottleneck (so able to support over 4000mhz could be interesting) or something about having only one CCX-L3 cache help.

    First leaked zen 3 benchmarks

    Little trick when that happen ( I could imagine them pulling reviews if they were published by accident and before the embargo lift): https://web.archive.org/web/20201030134919/https://www.sisoftware.co.uk/2020/10/29/amd-ryzen3-5800x-review-benchmarks-cpu-8-core-16-thread-performance/

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    Not sure if it is interesting that they choose 3200mhz ddr-4 for that 5900x or not, but I would have expected higher with the talks of run best at 3800-4000 or what not there was a little while ago.

    Newb to cell phones... wife wants something cheap & simple

    Wouldn't a $40 flip phone be a winner here ? Suggestion over $100, talk about picture quality with mention of Android and what not seem overkill.

    Everything is gone again?

    There is a bit of speculation, but at first look in some game the gap between the 2080TI and the 3070 get larger (in favor of the TI) in 4K vs the previous resolution and those game seem to be high VRAM game like Flight Simulator, showing that it could be a limit if someone has 4K in mind, that...

    Will RTX 3070's actually be in stock?

    Except if there is more value in a in person client (shipping cost, average side buy of items with actual margin from an in person person) for Microcenter and that they achieve to sell them all on location, if that is the case it could be argue the exact opposite, that it would make little sense...

    Everything is gone again?

    Specially if this is generally true accross the board: https://profit-mine.com/tools/gpuprofitability I.e. 5700xt is better than a 3070 for much cheaper and easy to find for crypto.

    Are those price USD ? Is there really a big market for people buying 3070 at above 3080 future price ?

    Everything is gone again?

    One incentive that is there, the scalpers will only buy the cards on your platform, if instead each card is bought one by one by regular customer with no pressure to act fast that make people that will possibly buy you high margin items at the same time, fancy HDMI 2.1 cable for that card for...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    It could be more about raw power missing than anything about port complexity, looking at PS4 and Xbox specs while looking at the game trailers, what is perplexing is thinking about running that on 2013 hardware ? (And not particularly strong even when it released in 2013 hardware). Maybe HDD...

    They having gaming in the name and RGB on it (could you imagine RGB on a quadro card ?), I could imagine some people preferring not listing stuff like that in R&D report and their tax reimbursement and so on. Not sure how much is justified, but it create some uneasiness, I am a bit like that if...

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    Before seeing any Blender benchmark and reviews ? Considering that in some blenderworkload the 3090 is more than twice as fast than a 2080ti/Radeon 7 and how good denoiser / AI is for something like a blender viewport type of task, would it not be worth it to wait for comparison between the 2 ...

    PS5 Teardown: An inside look at our most transformative console yet

    I was wondering if we could infer from today annoucement (6080 being 60 CU with 16 tflops performing 10-15% above a 2080TI and what not) what a 36 CU 10 tflop could do, can we expect around 60% of a 6080 performance (i.e. 70% of a 2080ti) for a PS5 and 75% of a 2080TI for the XBox or it is more...

    Is it possible Nvidia/AMD are sandbagging their numbers for the 30xx and 6000 series? Plus some other ramblings

    One possible way to look at it if to look if some game out there didn't had their performance change by driver optimisation over time (of say release of the 5700xt versus now), maybe a Doom Eternal in Vulkan ? If such game exist you could see if the advantage of the 3090 over the 2080ti is...

    The way it was said I felt like the B550 would also had it, from memory it was the 500 motherboard, I could be wrong there but I would imagine that it was included in there, otherwise that made the B550 a really bad product. One thing that seem interesting if I believe those screenshots...

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    Speaking just for the 6800 Maybe there was little choice, 16 gig of GDDR6 is a lot, maybe that over $150 USD right there, it certainly make it feel future proof in a way. One element is that maybe DSSL is not attractive short term for a 6800xt/3800 and above buyer, they will able to run...

    Running USB Transparently over IP

    Need assurance on my network setup 2.5bps

    In your case it is probably for the total of all your connected device to use together more than 1 gig from/to the WAN port, say you have one machine downloading 1 gig, one other downloading at one gig and an other uploading at 500mbits. With a gigabit wan, they will not be able to over 1 gig...

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    This why it would help the 3090 a lot (to not only be faster when the 24 gb are needed but when Titan type of drivers help), that said that would make the next $2,500+ Titan hard to make if they do that, because that 3080TI will probably be faster in every gaming scenario if they make one, the...

    Probably because RTX would have became unusuable on a under 2060 performance card (it was already quite limited there), making it a really bad choice for the money versus using a Pascal one, at least until DSSL got a level to make it made sense.

    Why should it have been priced higher than the 1080ti was in 2017 ($700 or about $750 now in 2020 money) ? $800 would have been worst than the 2xxx series. The 1070 launch price here is a good start ($411 in today dollars) I think, add how much you value the RTX/DLSS/Voice/giant jump in CADs...

    Wait is the scenario for the issue to occur: When the affected system is connected to the AVR via 8K HDMI input and set to output at 4K/120Hz, and the AVR’s 4K Signal Format Who would do that ? (have a 8K hdmi source to output to a 4K screen) ? That sound extremelly niche.
