    Nvidia Purposely Reducing Hash Rate for RTX 3060 GPUs, Creates Cryptocurrency Mining Processors (CMP)

    I'm buying the GPU for gaming only, dont mind them gimping it for mining. but let's be real, that still not gonna deter scalpers and miner to get the whole stock. The only real thing that would reduce the demand from miners are when the crypto currency crashes.

    NVIDIA Bans Reviewer for Concentrating on Rasterization Instead of Ray Tracing

    That's the main reason why Hardware Unboxed didnt give much effort to NVIDIA RTX. The hardware is not yet there to make it a viable option to be turned on as default. To get a decent FPS with RTX on, you would at least get 3080. It is not as important as how NVIDIA is portraying. It will be...

    should I get a 27" 4k monitor? which lg model should I get?

    i think the minimum screen size for 4k is 32". 27" is just too small which would cause you too scale windows.

    Best 34/35" gaming monitor sub <=1k?

    the main factor for me in choosing between the LG and Samsung are the panels. LG is using IPS while Samsung using VA which gives way better contrast. if Samsung hadn't released their Odyssey range, id definitely pick up the LG
