    Malaysian authorities crush 1,069 crypto mining rigs with a steamroller

    I wonder if the GPUs in them are salvageable? lol!

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    I managed to get a 3090 FE. I bought it from Best Buy at MSRP so I didn't have to pay a scalper but it was still a lot of money. Two weeks before that I ordered a 3080 FE in a drop but it didn't make it to my store. On the next drop I was getting something at all costs. Turned out to be the 3090 FE.

    New OLED Nintendo Switch dropping October 8th

    If availability is decent I may trade in my original Switch and Switch Lite to get one.

    Doom Eternal RTX greyed out on laptop RTX 3060

    Looks like this is a common issue with RTX 3060 laptops. Some say it has to do with the iGPU. Maybe try updating the Intel display driver?

    Doom Eternal

    Nearly all of the changes are for the DLC but the arachnotron turret changes are in the base game, too.

    Doom Eternal

    One of the main things is that they nerfed the arachnotron turret by making it fire slower and less accurately. Before their turret was much more lethal which meant that arachnotrons basically controlled the arena until you dealt with them. They also removed enemies from UAC Atlantica such as...

    The last big patch nerfed certain things to make it easier so that might be what you're experiencing.

    Doom Eternal

    Just got done trying out the new RT mode and it's very impressive. At 4K with a 3090 FE without DLSS I was averaging a little over 100fps. Setting DLSS to quality mode got me to 120fps easy. No need to mess around with the lower settings. Since Doom Eternal makes use of lots of metallic surfaces...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I have an Acer Predator X27 which doesn't support DSC and it is limited to those same values. So, your understanding is correct from what I can tell.

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    Just got done playing around with FSR in The Riftbreaker: Prologue and overall it's really good. I was very skeptical about how FSR would look and perform across a range of different GPU architectures from both venders but on my 3090 I was happy with how it looked and even in Ultra Quality mode...

    Doom Eternal

    Both DLCs are very good. I prefer The Ancient Gods 1 to 2 but 2 is still really good.

    Doom Eternal

    I for one am very excited for the RTX update. Doom Eternal is one of my favorite games of all time and the update is looking sick. Bring it on!

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I managed to get a Series X bundle during that drop. I miraculously got a PS5 from Best Buy back in January. It's weird to see how hard everything is to get still.

    Intel CEO: Most People Only Replace A PC After 5-6 Years

    I kept my previous build for 8 years but upgraded the storage, GPU and monitor throughout it's lifetime multiple times. I finally built a new PC around last July.

    Power outage - Rtx 3090 - question.

    +1 on getting a UPS. Ever since I started using them for my PC and living room setup I've had much more peace of mind about power outages and surges.

    Doom Eternal has added paid skins, despite previous assurances it wouldn’t

    This is definitely an odd move but not surprising since the game is free on Game Pass now. I've been playing the game since launch so luckily I've unlocked all the event skins so far besides the ones from the new event since it just started.

    I went camping...

    You definitely have me beat! All I had to do to get mine to fit was move the lip around the back of the case out of the way just a little bit so the PCI-E bracket on the card would clear it. Even though it fits it's still very close. There is maybe a millimeter or two of space between the card...

    3090 FE or 3090 FTW3

    My 3090 FE has some cool whine in certain situations but it isn't any worse than other cards I've used in past. From my experience and what others have said cool whine can vary depending on your PSU and possibly other components in your system.

    3090 FE or 3090 FTW3

    I've heard that the failure rate is higher on the EVGA cards than the FE. That's about all I know.

    I went camping...

    I've heard that, too but haven't really looked into it myself to confirm since I usually keep everything at stock settings. The clocks at stock settings on my 3090 FE aren't the most impressive when compared to AIB models but when I tried raising the power target alone it gave me about a 100Mhz...

    I feel the same way about the 3090 FE I have in my system right now. Not only was it hard to get but the unique size and shape of it gives it a "cool factor" unlike any other card I've owned previously. Congrats on getting your card and enjoy!

    I microwaved a R9 390X gaming and now my pc won't run after 3rd time

    This reminds me of when I was a teen and had a Nokia N-Gage and my friend ran it in a microwave as a joke for a few seconds while I was in the bathroom. That's all it took to fry it. Still have it in a box somewhere.

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    I listed mine locally on Craigslist and someone claimed it within two hours after posting it. I didn't want to price it at eBay prices to be nice but I could have charged at least $100 more and it still would have been a fair price comparatively. Oh well, I got a 3090 FE now so I can't complain.

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    I sold my 2080Ti in early February for $650 and I could have and should have sold it for more. Crazy how people were selling them for under $500 at one point.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Yep, one guy on Reddit said that's how he got a card. Their friend at Best Buy called him and said they had an extra card that was never picked up so he went and go it. So yeah, if a card isn't picked up at Best Buy someone else will likely snag it before you get to it.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    I've heard that if a card never gets picked up or the buyer cancels their order then they'll place the card on the shelf. So, if you're extremely lucky you may see a card in store to buy but it's unlikely.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I'd be tempted to get one and sell my 3090 since I don't need the 24GB VRAM of the 3090 and 12GB should be plenty for a while. It'll depend on price and availability of it though but it'll most likely be hard to get and overpriced like all cards now.

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    Mine is in a Fractal Design Meshify C case with two front 140mm fans, a 240mm AIO rad at the top, and an Arctic P-12 fan to replace the stock rear fan. Cooling isn't bad but the smaller Meshify C case might be holding it back unless I crank up the fan speed to a level that's a bit too loud for me.

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    The fan on mine starts to spin up and make some noise when I play a game that uses ray tracing such as Control and especially Quake II RTX. Playing Quake II RTX with the power limit maxed out makes it too loud for me. Luckily at stock settings and playing a normal rasterized game the fan is...
