    Comcast data caps are coming in January all over the place

    share your old motherboard collection!

    I was going through some files recently and stumbled upon old NVIDIA press stuff from the early / mid 2000s. Way back then I was doing hardware reviews as a freelance gig and had gotten a bunch of stuff from them. The hardware is all long since gone, and almost all the photos I had from that...

    5700XT on Ubuntu (18.04 and 19.10) impressions, anyone else tried?

    Picked up a 5700XT recently and popped it into my Linux system to see how things looked. Display is a 43" 4k TV (Visio E43-F1). 18.04 obviously hasn't been updated with kernel 5.3 and mesa 19.2 yet, so the only option there is to install AMD's driver package...

    2400g GPU clock gets stuck after installing Ryzen Master

    I wanted to see about tweaking some settings on my 2400g last night so I installed Ryzen Master. Noticed much lower framerates in Unigine Heaven after the install, without changing anything in RM. GPU-Z was reporting the Vega 11 clock speed stuck at 400MHz, wouldn't go any higher. Even after...

    Smallest case for Ryzen APU & Wraith Stealth?

    With the launch of the new Ryzen APUs I thought this was worth re-visiting (there's an old thread here). I have an ISK 110 here I was thinking of using for a build, but it's questionable whether the Wraith Stealth (53.4mm) will fit in it. I seem to recall having an Intel setup in one a while...

    any inexpensive, small external GPU enclosures? Is there a market for one?

    I realize that most of the GPU enclosures out so far are for getting that GTX 1080 connected to your laptop for extreme speeds. And those are going to be expensive and large. I haven't seen anything like this but I'm wondering, given that a lot of the enclosures I've seen and thunderbolt...

    I've got an XFX RX 470 RS Black Edition. Last night I was working on the system it was in and had it sitting on my desk. It's one of these new "hard swap" dealies, where the fan uses contact points on a PCB in the heatsink frame to get power, so they can be easily swapped out. I poked around...

    what's the closest you've made/seen a system run to the limit of its PSU?

    I was looking at the PSU calculator just now and it got me wondering.
