    iOS 14+ wifi problems

    14.1 is a steaming pile of crap. I feel your pain. I have a 6S Plus that now runs @100% all the time & drops battery power from 100 to 60 in 3 hours. I've done a wipe, a restore from both icloud and itunes to no avail. Not to mention CarPlay is essentially unusable because it now constantly...

    3080 - What's the difference? Asus ROG vs TUF?

    As far as I can tell, the strix cards have more features related to extreme overclocking (voltage monitoring points on PCB while using ln2, 3x8 pin power delivery and more power delivery headroom). Also some "gamer" vibe and design aesthetics. TUF used to be a high grade and durable...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I don't rebuild that often, but I'm not gonna lie, I was motivated about upgrading by these new cards. However, I increasingly find myself day by day to not give a crap. Nvidia, AMD or otherwise. If I can't buy the products, why would I continue to care? /end rant. I think I'm going to...

    Troublesome GPT Protective partition =/

    So. Turned on my computer, couldnt get it to boot into windows - got stuck at the spinning dots. Restarted again into bios to check on things, and everything seems normal. No HDD's missing. Reboot and get into windows. Then I notice one of my storage drives is missing. I check disk...

    AmpereGate! RTX 3080 instability

    Much ado about nothing. Early days and driver bugs. There doesn’t seem to be much more performance to be gained from Ampere OC’ing. Is it nice to be at the top end? Yes. Absolutely. But the gains seem to be minimal in real world FPS for the effort and cost :/ Nvidia seems to have squeezed as...

    Time for a new case....which one of these?

    I’m not going crazy with the SSD’s. Just recycling the drives I already have, besides the optical :/ might get some 10tb drives and leave the 4tbs in Anyway, I’m deciding between the Phanteks P600s, the Corsair 4000d airflow and the Lancool 2. I like the O11 but it’s wide form won’t go on my...

    Time for a new case....which one of these?

    Time to prepare for a new build and a new enclosure. I am very concerned about dust & pet hair (needs robust filters), but also for airflow efficiency. I'm planning for a tower air cooler (NHD-15), a standard atx mobo, 2 mechanical hard-drives, bunch of SSD's I have laying around, a RTX 3080 FE...

    NVIDIA will no longer be adding new SLI driver profiles starting on January 1st, 2021

    Once the extra work was essentially dumped on devs via dx12, it was over. I mean, were devs who are pushed/stressed to meet deadlines in large games releases really going to take on the extra work for niche use cases? still sad to see the tech put away - I liked the power of it when it was...

    6700k paired with 3080 (bottleneck?)

    This review tested with a 7700K and compared it with a newer 10900k. Seems very relevant to this thread. Anyway, the conclusion was that at higher resolutions (1440p and greater), they were pretty much neck & neck. Some titles use more cores, and it will become more common, but currently, a...

    Who is buying a 3080 and 3090?

    Getting a 3080, and will flip if a 3080 Ti version comes out. The FE is sexy. Regardless, its an upgrade for me coming from 980 Ti's. This upcoming release schedule is a nice time. This & AMD Zen3. Good times.

    6700k paired with 3080 (bottleneck?)

    Nope. Should be fine at higher resolutions. I'll be jumping on a 3080 now and zen3 later when its viable. Don't worry about it too much.

    So buy Ampere or wait for AMD response?

    i'll be jumping on a 3080. I would ideally want to go on a 3080ti (if it eventually comes out later), however, i'm ready to replace my 980ti's. They have served me well. As for AMD, i'm hopeful, but just that. As far as 3rd party designs go, although they are def cooler & more robust, I...

    Samsung Quits Blu-ray Player Market

    Imo, streaming 4k is a compromise for convenience. If you want the max in terms of 4k visuals and sound, physical media is the way to go. 4k streaming is ok, just not the best to do it justice. I use my Plex server for media I want for times of convenience (movies etc I don't care for best...

    Star Citizen Developer Calls Real-Time Ray Tracing "A Massive Headache"

    Is anyone taking this company seriously anymore? I'd suggest getting your game out before saying what you are not going to add to it. Unless that's their plan and say : " oh, in the end we added it and it delayed us even more. We told everyone so!" Jokers they are....

    Have you seen Tom’s Hardware piece on RTX?

    When I was reading the article, I thought he was having difficulty in generating valid reasons himself and came up with a load of diatribe and one-liners that were not really believable.....I thought it was a poor attempt at satire myself at first. In the end, I just think he was tasked with...

    Have you seen Tom’s Hardware piece on RTX?

    I think it was supposed to be a part of a point-counter point article series. The articles weren't linked and caused chaos. I don't think the piece was meant to be taken as a singular standalone thing. At least it gave TR the web traffic though lol

    Nvidia Allegedly Terminates Sponsorship for Stance Against Preordering Hardware

    If the guest made the comment, then it's a bit harsh. If the steamer then endorsed it, then Nvidia were right to yank him from the influencer program he was participating in. If you sign up, best be on good behavior for the toys. Common sense.
