    RTX 3060 12GB

    So... very near 1080ti performance with 30% lower power consumption and DLSS / RT. The only downside is actual retail price which can't be blamed squarely on Nvidia. Seems like a solid card... when its available at MSRP.

    Make Intel great again? Intel Rocket lake i7-11700 processor review!

    AMD will need to get a cheaper 8 core part out soon. The 10700F looks to be 5800x performance at 5600x price. I would think that they could finally divert some production away from their SOCs that were taking priority.

    Xbox Series S

    Really cool backwards compatibility frame rate doubling (and even quadrupling!) of some older games. 3 out of the 5 games were only coded for One S, so they will be in the 900/1080p range. That said, going from an unstable 30 fps to a locked 60 fps really brings life to some of these older...

    Best Gaming CPU for $300

    Considering the price of the entire system, it is not that much cheaper and you lose over 25% cpu power.

    NVIDIA is now resupplying 4-year old GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Pascal GPUs to AIBs

    Guess it makes sense. Still better than an APU and there was never a GTX 2030 or GTX 3030 card. My LP 1050ti still works well for older games at 1080p and the nvenc is a great match with AMD CPUs.

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    It would really be a shame if Cezanne didn't make it to DIY. It has the potential of taking on TGL-U/H as well as RKL-S. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-ryzen-7-pro-5750g-zen-3-apu-reaches-475ghz-all-cores Zen3 cores, 4.75ghz, Renoir-like FCLK speeds, increased cache, and a respectable...

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    More Cezanne-H goodness with a more popular cpu. Intel launched TGL-H in "special edition" but it is just a 4 core cpu!

    If you know the power consumption of the application (w) and the battery rating (w/h) you should be able to math it relatively close.

    AMD pushes back on Tiger Lake with Cezanne mobile CPUs

    Cezanne H series desktops dominates as expected and Asus even managed to stuff it in a 13" ultrabook. TGL is expected to get an 8 core part to replace the 8 core CML-H eventually, but for now, AMD is dominates on all mobile form factors.

    Intel 10nm/7nm CPU/GPU Rumor Thread : Cannonlake, Icelake, Tigerlake, Sapphire Rapids, etc.

    Intel is still claiming Alder Lake in September 2021. https://www.techpowerup.com/277657/intel-alder-lake-s-due-for-september-2021 It has a new socket featuring DDR5. If they actually believe that timeline, why even bother with 6 months of RKL. Edit: Tiger Lake (mobile) and the much delayed...

    Rocket Lake-S prices revealed through retailers

    Why do you keep bringing mobile into this? TAU for these cpus is 56 seconds. If the motherboard ignores that, most would co sider it a factory overclock and would not be good with stock cooling.

    Rocket Lake-S prices revealed through retailers

    Cache is the same and base clock is slightly higher on the i7 at the same 125 tdp, so can't imagine binning is terribly better. There is not much product segmentation at the top end and is probably why many thought the is were going to be 8/12 parts.

    RTX 3060 12GB

    Weird hybrid design for the 192 bit 560ti getting 1 GB pool instead of 768 MB by using a few 2 Gb chips instead if 1 Gb. So why not use a few 16 Gb chips along side mostly cheaper 8 Gb chips to get the same 8 GB on the 3060? Basically it would be the same setup as the 560ti but everything...

    RTX 3060 12GB

    In before "why is this 12 GB and 3060ti only 8 GB" youtuber-esque comment. For real though, it looks to be a good price and hope they come out with a 6 GB version for around $50 less.

    CES 2021 Intel style. RKL-S: Not much we didn't know. Lack of B-460 support for 11th gen? They can't be serious. ICL-Xeon: A running joke on this thread. I will just quote Dr. Cutress "Today Intel is announcing that it has started production, although earlier in the year Intel said it was...

    Great so far. Man this thing is small, and no power brick. If you factor that in, it's about 1/3rd the size of a my XB1 making it great for travel. Silent as well, averaging 70w on Apex Legends.

    Grabbed one for $400, which is about $70 over retail (9% tax). Not terrible but the first time I bought something over retail so it feels a bit crummy. Coming from an Xbox one, it should be a nice boost. I will see once I am done with the local transfer. The internal drive is small, but I...
