    Ordered one of these bad boys on Amazon on Sunday and it was originally scheduled for May 14th thanks to the Chinese Coronavirus but it got bumped up to this Sunday so I'm pretty excited to get it. I'm currently using an Asus PG278Q 144 Hz G-Sync display which has served me really well the last...

    GOAT of Duty

    Its free until April 1 then it will be $10 like other early access games. It's goats with UT/Quake like DM so it might be half decent. I grabbed it and will check it out this evening if anyone wants to join in on the fragging:

    FS: EKWB 1080 Ti/Titan X Block, Model O Mouse

    The Model O mouse was bought in mid December and used for a grand total of a few hours before I decided I hated the way it felt in my hand so I reverted back to my Logitech G Pro Wireless so this thing is practically brand new. I've also got the bungee for it. The EKWB block is in good shape...

    AMD vs. Nvidia vs. Reshade, Who Has the Best Game Sharpening Feature?

    HWUB delivers yet again with a comparison between ReShade, FreeStyle and AMD RIS. RIS comes out on top w/the least performance hit with FreeStyle taking the largest hit. But the quick and dirty CAS ported to ReShade has a minimal hit (~3-4%) and when used between 0.5-0.8 gives the same quality...

    Not so fine wine: Radeon VII vs RTX 2080

    Techspot revisited the Radeon VII several months later after release to see if AMD driver updates have helped close the gap between it and the RTX 2080. Sadly, this didn't happen and in fact, in very popular multiplayer titles like Apex Legends, Fortnite and R6: Siege, the Radeon VII got smoked...

    Looks like Kyle has company now (NVIDIA related)

    So I enjoy watching Hardware Unboxed, the dude does good videos and decent benchmarks with honest opinions. It seems NVIDIA wasn't impressed with him being forthright so they left out his 2060 sample and claimed they were short on boards even though TweakTown in Australia got theirs. More here...

    Avoid NewEgg At All Costs

    It isn't the company it once was once the Chinese bought it out. I purchased a 9900K + Gigabyte Aorus Master from there and today both items arrived or so I thought.

    Hardware Unboxed - BF 5 benchmarks

    This is why I can’t take AMD seriously in the high end CPU market for consumers, they get pummeled in games. Yeah Ryzen has cores but that’s about it really. The game might be in a beta stage but I doubt this result will change much between now and final release. Video:

    Well so much for AMD getting priority with HBM 2

    We've heard many times that since AMD helped co-develop HBM with SK Hynix that they'd get some sort of priority over NVIDIA in sourcing it and thus force NVIDIA to wait or come up with alternate plans. Many of us who knew better, that locking out a company with 80%+ marketshare would make no...

    Hexus just did an excellent review of the Zotac 980 Ti Amp Extreme and it's around 20%+ faster than Fury X at 4k and just stomps it in all other resolutions. This all for $699 from NewEgg and the best part is the load temps and noise are very close to the AIO Fury X. The sample they had OC'd...
