    Radeon 6800 rumored to be 1.5x speed of 3090 for mining: Are we doomed?

    So I just heard this news from NotanApplefan... The new Radeon 6800 is a MUCH faster mining card than even the Nvidia 3090. 1.5x faster allegedly. When you consider that the power draw on the 6000 series is much lower, the price is lower, and the mining performance is upwards of 50% faster...

    3080 Ti speculation

    So the rumors are in the air. The 3080 Ti will be coming out soon to compete with AMD 6000 series. It's going to have more memory than the 3080 but probably less than the 3090. What I'm hearing is 20GB of DDR6X but with the 320bit bus of the 3080 but keeping the CUDA core count of the 3090...

    So who else ordered a Ryzen 5000 series CPU?

    I took the plunge and did preorder via B&H photo. I was scanning Amazon and Newegg at 12AM and did not see any listed on the website yet. I guess I'll go for the "sure" thing. I'll let you guys know if/when it ships. So is anybody else buying a Ryzen 5000 today, if so which one did you go...

    Who is to blame for Failed 3000 Series Launch?

    So as everyone knows by now only the very lucky few, or the ones who were willing to pay scalped prices have been able to get their hands on a 3080, 3090, or 3070 GPU. Oh almost forgot, the ones lucky enough to live near one of 8 Microcenter locations also were able to get them via the brick...

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    So from what I understand Zen 3 makes an architectural leap that will provide an additional 19% in IPC performance. And from what AMD reveals this means that they finally beat Intel at gaming. Per the slides the 5900X defeats the 10900k pretty much across the board except for one scenario...

    So the new 2060KO is apparently a stealth 2080

    for the purposes of Blender... Game performance is the same but productivity apps are a LOT better. I wonder if it could be fooled into thinking it was a full 2080 by bios flashing and how that would boost performance?

    Trying to pick the best x570 motherboard

    I'm going back to AMD for cpu for the first time! So right now I'm trying to pick between Gigabyte Aorus Master, Asus Crosshair VIII Hero, Asrock Taichi, and MSI PEG Ace. I don't like having only 4 sata ports on the MSI. I'm unsure about the Taichi. I do like the 2.5 GB LAN feature. Does...

    Ray Tracing Deep Dive: Is it worth it?

    Here we have a video examining how RTX ray tracing is implemented in Battlefield V. The most significant drawback, besides the massive performance hit is the noise. Particularly check out the scene where they examine ray traced waves and it looks noisy as hell instead of smooth. In fact I'd...

    Will a 10 series video card handle 2 different refresh rate displays with no problem?

    I'm thinking of buying a 165hz monitor for either Black Friday or Cyber Monday. My secondary display would then be my 75hz monitor. So will that work on my GTX 1080 to run 1 display at 75hz and the other at 165hz? Sounds kinda weird. Anyone else use two different refresh rate monitors and...
