    AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT ‘RDNA 2 Refresh’ Graphics Cards Rumored For Q2 2022: Navi 21 & 22 GPUs With 18 Gbps Memory

    This is a topic that exposes peoples fanboy team. :) The last rebrand / refresh that I can think of is the RX-480 / 580 / 590. I mean perhaps you could say that the 1070 TI which was essentially just a 1080 with GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X. Some of the super cards in the 20 series could be just...

    5800X3D gaming review

    I have not seen any reviews using Civilization or similar turn based strategy game turn processing time benchmarks. These types of games are pretty much the only reason why I upgrade my CPU at this point.

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Memtest64 is a fairly easy to use tool to check the ram. Another safe way to check the ram is to set it to stock speeds 2166 and see if the errors go away. After reading the thread I am pretty sure eventually you will need a clean install of windows.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @

    What I don’t know is how close is the MSRP is to the BOM. One of the things we have heard is that it is “impossible” to sell at MSRP because the BoM cost is too close to the MSRP for the AIB to make their margins. We have no way of knowing if this is true or not. MLiD has done some reporting...

    Google loses patent case against Sonos, will remove features from Nest and Chromecast products

    It really is not easy to do what Sonos did. Changing the relative volume on multiple wireless speakers that are not being driven by a connected amp and getting the sound from each device to be sync’s and not drift is not trivial. Try playing the same song on multiple devices at the same time...

    i7 7700k to i7 12700k worth it ?

    100% don’t need windows 11 for 12th gen. It runs just fine on windows 10. Their are compatibility issues with some older denovo games. You can work around this with most motherboards by disabling E-cores. Don’t need DDR5 either. Buy a DDR4 board and an 12600k or 12700k if you want to stay with...

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    It is “easy” to create images with the same hash. It’s called a collision I believe. I agree that randomly having the same hash is rare, but people will intentionally create collisions to muck it up.

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    I sold 64 cards in fall 2019 until the spring of 2020. My average sales price of 1070 was $289.12. The highest one was $339.99. The lowest was $247.17. This was done mostly because I was moving for work from a low cost energy state to a high cost area. I never saw the cheap flood of cards...

    Did GPU bubbles of before "pop" in some way?

    oh yes remember how cheap cards were in 2018-2019 when all the 1070 cards used for mining were flooding the market? Their were so many cheap 1070 on the market that the 2060 was sold below MSRP. /s

    EVGA Queue Discussion

    Once you get the card you want you simply Click “remove from queue”. Even if you don’t do this and even if most people don’t it after getting their first card, it does not noticeable slow things down.

    AMD at CES 2021 @ 10am CST

    In Steve’s defense his analysis is pretty solid for a Tech Tuber. I mean we are a long ways away from the days of well research written articles on that explain technical concepts. Those days are long gone.

    ASUS officially increases graphics cards and motherboards pricing

    Prices are always sticky on the up side, never on the downside. Prices don’t go down until there is demand destruction. But they quickly rise when demand > supply. Cutting gas taxes does not make prices go down in marginal situations, it just distributes the revenue to different sources. While...

    ASUS officially increases graphics cards and motherboards pricing

    It’s called inflation. Real inflation not the fake number they lie and tell us it is. Half of all the dollars in circulation were printed in 2020. During November 2020, year-over-year (YOY) growth in the money supply was at 37.08 percent. That’s unchanged from October’s rate, and up from...

    Are we going to see good Intel processors anymore?

    Exactly. If TSMC had spare capacity AMD would be booking it for more Waffers for PS5, XBox, GPU or CPU. Honestly these companies (team green, red and blue) are not competing with each other. They are competing with historical demand caused by lockdowns driving working from home and at home...

    Is 10gb VRAM really enough for 1440p?

    Exactly. The games that have been sited as using more than 10 GB of VRAM at 4K perform better on a 3080 than they do on a 6800xt. If they actually were running into not having enough VRAM that would NOT be the case. Instead what we see is that the 6800 cards over perform at 1080-1440 and...

    Is 10gb VRAM really enough for 1440p?

    Sooo the 3080 does not have enough VRAM for 4K but out performs the 6800xt at 4K. Congrats on the gold stat in mental gymnastics! :) 10 gigs is enough for 4K gaming right now. It might be an issue near the end of life of the cards in 2024... likely will still not be an issue because the...

    Current state of PhysX? Is it well and truly dead?

    It’s a shame that ray tracing can’t use a 2nd GPU just for ray tracing and let the first card do the rasterization. That was the idea back in the day with a dedicated PPU.

    Intel Expands 10nm Manufacturing Capacity

    WCCF tech had this same article. I have a feeling this was a sponsored article or a press release dressed up as an article. At least tech power up labeled it a press release. As far as I can tell WCCF did not.
