    Is SLI faster on Zen 2 (3700x, etc) ?

    Hi, I just upgraded to a 3700x and I have a 1070TI. Runs great. But now I am seeing the price of used 1070TI cards getting low enough to where I am wondering if going SLI is a good option. I have read reviews and I know that some games benefit, some don't. However, with the Multi-core power...

    Hi all, Currently running I7 4770K, 1070Ti, and wondering if moving to the AMD 2700x would be a worthwhile upgrade. I do have a vive. I have priced out the parts on Microcenter and I think I could get there for around $350 for MB, RAM and CPU which seems very reasonable. Articles I have...
