    Intel drops $20B into creating a foundry business.

    But they will probably still be 2 generations behind TSMC. Also intel doesn’t only do CPUs and GPUs. But I bet you the big names won’t be going to intel anytime soon.

    Intel drops $20B into creating a foundry business.

    My question is how many companies want to pay intel for the foundry business? How many companies want to pay THE competitor money to make your chip? Its also going to take them at least 2 years to get this one running. TSMC will never compete with their customers but Intel sure does.

    Oculus Quest 2

    I don’t have any tips. It just worked flawlessly for me. I haven’t played with my quest 2 lately. I’ll make some time and let you know how the UniFi 6 LR works.

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    Yea, thats why I sold my C63 before. I was spending probably 5k a year just on maintenance. Tires, brake pads, fluid changes. Gas was probably $3.2 a gallon and I got like 14mpg the whole time I had it. I also always did the services at the dealer so I could get a loaner. It all added up and...

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    I only had the c63 when I bought it and I was traveling a lot for work. I switched jobs since and I don't have to travel anymore also I get to work at home now. But when I get the Taycan or E63 I'll have an SUV and a weekend car coming in to split miles.

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    The Porsche fit and finish is why I wanted the taycan instead of a model s. But I have been debating on it since I test drove the taycan turbo s. They even have a sport back coming. But if I get the taycan I will have to push my weekend car back a bit. If I went with a e63 amg wagon I can get...

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    Yea I have a lot of other stuff and I keep adding more every year. Working on a new one this year. I had a 2011 c63 amg for a long time until I sold it because I was just driving too much (I was putting 22k miles a year on her) also had to pay for my wife’s med school loans. I will probably get...

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    They do but it’s blacked out for your local team. So that means you have to wait a day to watch which isn’t as fun. To your other questions yes I have a 2 NAS with 10Gb connections and almost all my pcs are currently in the middle of getting 10Gb upgrades.

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    The only reason I still have cable is because I love watching the NBA and I wanted to legal option to watch my team. Fios isn’t available here where I am but I have 3 different providers. Trying to get work to help pay for xfinity gig pro haha. They pay right now for xfinity backup which is...

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    I dropped Comcast cable tv. I was tired of the fees increasing seemingly every month. It’s crazy how $60 a month turns into $110 a month after fees and before box rentals. Switched to fuboTV. I still have their gig speed internet but I use that as a backup to my fiber symmetrical gig.

    DDC 3.2 PWM Control Help

    Yea I just ended up keeping the pump and setting the curve using 20-50% pwm.

    DDC 3.2 PWM Control Help

    I swapped through all 4 pwm ports on the Aquaero 6 LT and the pump operates the same way. Also used the MB Pump header and same thing there too. So I wonder if I should RMA it.

    DDC 3.2 PWM Control Help

    I bought a EKWB EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite to replace the ddc 3.1 that came with my distro pump purely out of curiosity. Well now I am trying to control the pump speed (plugged into a Aquaero 6LT) but it does nothing in aquasuite from 100 until 50%. After 50% pump speed drops from 4500rpm~ to...

    School me on custom loops.

    So I got the EK DDC 3.2 PWM Elite and swapped it in. I was wrong about the flow rate for the ddc 3.1 that came with the distro plate. I was actually getting about 43-46 l/h running it at 100%. The ddc 3.2 can get up to 62-63 l/h. Temp wise there is a improvement of a few degrees under load but...

    Oculus Quest 2

    Network latency for me is 9-10ms for my NanoHD in game. H.264 is slightly better on latency than HEVC the quest 2 takes 5ms~ more to decode HEVC than h.264, my 3080 encode latency goes down maybe 1-2ms as well. Overall latency is 19ms in desktop, 25-35 in game with h.264. My NanoHD's are on the...

    Oculus Quest 2

    I bought real vr fishing last night and I loved it so much it convinced me. I ordered 2 more quest 2s for my brother in law and nephew. We love to go fishing and it would be nice to just fish together in vr when we can’t find time to go out to fish.

    LG to make a 42" OLED panel in 2021!

    Im not buying it for ppi I’m buying it because the CX48 is a bit too big for me and the 42” would be a lot more comfortable.

    LG to make a 42" OLED panel in 2021!

    Looks like I’m buying another LG OLED TV this year. Probably use the CX48 for the game room when people come over. Though I already have a 82” q90t in there. Honestly I don’t know what I’d do with the CX48 I just bought but I know I want a slightly smaller CX48.

    Oculus Quest 2

    Used Virtual Desktop on the rift and its been really great. I don't have any Wifi 6 routers yet but I havent had an issue. I am actually blown away, I remember trying the demo for the first rift and I was really nauseous really fast and wasn't impressed. But I have to say the only issue I have...

    School me on custom loops.

    Yea the bottom port in the back only allows you to partially drain the loop. I found it mostly drains the middle of the plate and some of the GPU since the GPU is first in line and is directly connected to the pump so it can drain back to the middle of the plate. But the CPU and top rad if you...

    Well I ordered on on Amazon today. Went with the quest since $400 isn’t much if I decide I don’t like vr for whatever reason.

    School me on custom loops.

    I don't think there are any problems running the G1 ddc 3.1 pump other than maybe cooling it. I bought the metal heatsink cover for mine and I use a Noctua A12x15 behind it to cool it. I've seen some Flow rate goes from 30 l/h to about 70 l/h 50-100% pwm. I don't really know how its supposed to...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Yea it’s how I got my 6800xt and 3080. I am using a Corsair sf750 with my 5900x and 3080. Watt meter shows 520w max pull from the wall and I have it boosting to 2050-2100 MHz when gaming. Probably 50w less for most other people since I have a lot of extra custom loop stuff in my rig. A YouTube...

    Epic Game Launcher sending lots of data

    Not the first time EGS and Epic was accused of mining data. Won't be the last time either, they will "fix" this then months or year down the line turn it back on. I can't really trust epic considering they willingly got in bed with the CCP's premier gaming company all about spreading the CCP's...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Houston Microcenter is routinely getting 30+ every day now. If you line up 2 hrs before open you will probably get one. Somedays they get 50+ 3080s and you can walk in right at open and get one.

    5900x, or 6800?

    You would have an easier time getting a 6800 than a 5900x. But if you are gaming the 6800 is a pretty big step up.

    5800x cooling question

    I have been testing PBO with the Curve optimizer the last few hrs on my 5900x. I can get up to 5150mhz with a negative 10-15 offset depending on the core. All core loads around 4.85 ghz. Temps are 5-7c lower than my manual overclock of 4.8 at 1.3. Seems like CO works quite well. Probably going...
