    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    I have to agree with this from first hand experience. I installed 10Gbit wired network in my new house and I have a mix of connections due to cost... The 10Gbit connections I can't even come close to maxing out. Actually, my 4 Disk RAID array doesn't even reliably hit 5Gbit on transfers...

    How much power do you need these days?

    It's not delivering 1,000 watts all day long. Having the capability is one thing, drawing it all is another. I always shoot a little (or a lot) higher in my choice of power supply so I cover my ass in case I do something crazy during the life cycle of the system I build. I just picked up a...

    AMD introduces Radeon RX 5600 XT for 279 USD

    I never said AMD was doomed, I have been saying that my opinions are based off of the Intel Juggernaut vs the underdog. I believe that I pretty clearly state my doubts about AMD, however, I have these doubts because of real world facts. Half the people on here are banner waving, card...

    How much power do you need these days?

    I like Platinum a lot. However, that's what typically gets me. I get most of that "theoretical" efficiency in the Gold and for half the price. 234.99 https://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-Platinum-SSR-1000PD-Modular-Warranty/dp/B075M3B1R7 219.99...

    New AMD ES GPU beats 2080Ti by 17% on OpenVR GPU Benchmark leaderboard

    I'm pretty certain that they can do better than a 15 FPS uplift... If Nvidia manages the 25% uplift they did last generation (on average) They would be sitting at around 110 FPS given this example. If they pull off 50%, which they have done in the past, they would be sitting at around 132 FPS...

    New AMD ES GPU beats 2080Ti by 17% on OpenVR GPU Benchmark leaderboard

    If it's only 15 FPS faster than a 2080Ti... It's totally too little, too late. Unless they price it accordingly. I see AMD punching out this card for 800-1000 bucks while they can, and then Nvidia gut punching them a couple months later. Only time will tell

    How much power do you need these days?

    If I am in doubt and I want a mid to high end rig I typically pickup an 850 Watt Seasonic Gold PS. I have two of these and I have never experience a single hiccup even with OC'ing and running a 2080Ti. The 750 here should be more than you ever need and the quality is simply excellent...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Unless it's paired with Intel Systems in the OEM market that don't include a GPU on them. Might see it a lot more than expected in cases like that.

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Given additional research, It would appear that Intel doesn't require patents from AMD or Nvidia to make GPUs and that the Nvidia deal was for something else entirely. The AMD cross license was only for a singular GPU...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    I posted in giant sized fonts to draw attention to where the rumor came from in the first place (Kyle). So, is Kyle Bennet a moron by your logic? I guess I will just wait for Kyle to chime in on this one. He has a habit of being correct when he reports rumors. His rumors are typically well...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Done deal We can now confirm the rumours that Intel has given up on Nvidia because it has written a cheque to license AMD's graphics. It looks like veteran GPU editor Kyle Bennet was right when he first reported the rumor, however wild it sounded. We didn't contemplate it but wrote about it...

    Anyone give up on PC Surround sound and just go stereo? Any regrets?

    I have a 5.1 setup in my office and I love the hell out of it. My audio processor is a smallish Yamaha 5.1 HT AMP. Until it dies I will likely continue to rock that setup. I use a pair of Klipsch Bookshef speakers, a BIC Center and 2 Klipsch Surround Speakers paired with a 10" Infinity Sub in...

    No, I don't expect people to do my research for me other than when I responded to Sabrewolf using my lack of resources and evidence as a weapon against me and responded in kind about how his post didn't include anything substantive other than his words (no different than mine at face value)...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    I have to agree with you. I got a helluva lot of mileage out of my Voodoo II, I am pretty sure it was a CL model as well. I miss the 3DFX days and Glide applications the cards were sweet for the time. I recall playing stuff like Wing Commander Prophecy on it. People would drool when they saw...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    The patents are a non issue from them. They used to license those patents from Nvidia for their Graphics division. Nvidia was insanely expensive to license them from so... they licensed them from AMD instead for a lot less. Intel can do pretty much anything they have a license for from AMD...

    Recommend a good MB for Ryzen 7 2700X

    If you're looking for some headroom and some longevity I would recommend the ASUS TUF line. They are rated well and the X570 Starts around 165 (No WiFi) Bucks and goes to about 190 (Wi-Fi). That way you're ready to support whatever AMD does with the Ryzen 4000 (Ryzen 3) lineup. Non-WiFi...

    Samsung 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 SSD Makes An Appearance

    I'm actually more excited about the 2TB PCIE 3.0 Inland Drives, their speeds are excellent and it's twice the capacity of my 970 Pro 1TB for half the price. I'm incredibly happy with the 1TB Inland drive in the system I have it in. I picked up my 970 Pro for about 400 bucks on sale... but I...

    AMD introduces Radeon RX 5600 XT for 279 USD

    You guys are just jumping all over my opinions. I don't really think the 5700 XT is too expensive. I really don't think the 5700 is too expensive. I think the 5600 and below are 50 bucks too expensive and would like to see all of AMD's CPU's drop about 50 bucks. If you're going to talk about...

    Why hasn't AMD announced desktop Renoir APUs?

    I'm not talking about HBM2 being added to the die. I'm talking about adding a more powerful GPU to the die, something that stresses the shit out of the memory bandwidth that is available. Honestly, the 2/3 series Zen APUs officially cap out at 2933 Mhz on Ram support. I have gotten my 3400G...

    Why hasn't AMD announced desktop Renoir APUs?

    Sure that's part of the issue. However, they could very well release an onboard solution that comes damn close to a discrete, 128 Bit Solution, if they wanted to. IMO.

    AMD introduces Radeon RX 5600 XT for 279 USD

    Not enough. They are barely stealing market share from Intel. A good example of AMD pricing their cards too high is the 5700XT, they public-ally released it at one price point only to dial it back down after the Super Parts dropped. The would have totally charged their initial prices for...

    Why hasn't AMD announced desktop Renoir APUs?

    So it's going to be a huge letdown, essentially. The gains will be on the CPU front and the GPU will be a yawn festival. Almost no damn point in me migrating from a 3400G if that's the case regardless of the CPU's higher performance. I was hoping for an on-board GPU that edges closer to a...

    Why hasn't AMD announced desktop Renoir APUs?

    They're not ready to release them yet. They are still milking the crap out of 12nm Silicon Zen+ 3400G models and under. I am on board for an immediate purchase of the 7nm APUs, I want one because it will be a processor that is almost on ST parity with Intel (with no security holes to slow it...

    Zen 3 is rumored to be flaunting monumental IPC gains in early testing
