    [AMD] AMD shows more gaming benchmarks on RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT, at 4K and 1440p.

    This logic makes a lot of sense but it never held true for any game that was multi platform.

    Logitech Hero sensor upgraded from 16k DPI to 25k

    Well I have to say, DPI is only part of the equation. Windows also has "mouse speed" which is a multiplier (I guess). The numbering 1-20 does not make much sense. I normally use 500 and Windows sensitivity 10. If I set it to 5500 and 1 sens, you'd think the EDPI would be the same but it does not...

    Logitech Hero sensor upgraded from 16k DPI to 25k

    Does anyone use more than say 2000 dpi? These upgrades have not made a difference to me in at least 15 years.

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    I try to reboot my desktop as least as possible. I load a ton of apps and tabs on different virtual desktops and then put it to sleep when I walk away. I used to run an RX580 and an RX470 and some other AMD card before that. It would often not resume from sleep (the system seemed to but the...

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    Well I hope this means it will be a card that is in demand. Judging by the Steam surveys, no one cares about AMD cards. I use them (well used to until a this year) but the Steam survey show than something like 10% of people use AMD cards. NVIDIA could really use some competition at the mid to...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Does anyone know if there will be a consumer version? Like a 2-300$ version? I have a 1660 Super and I am not looking at paying twice what it cost as a replacement.

    Silverstone SG14 is coming in July!

    I watched the video from above. This thing is way too big and that is a common problem with mITX cases. They all assume you will be spending $2000 on a GPU so they are unnecessarily long to support said GPU. I've gone though a few cases and I currently use a NZXT h210. I think it is the best out...

    Do you think we'll get thunderbolt in next gen microsoft?

    It is anyone's guess. I know a lot of people complain about it and MS knows it. They are slow to implement new features so there is that.

    Belkin Thunderbolt dock with slow PD

    My wife bought a Belkin Thunderbolt dock for her Macbook 16" (still to arrive). I have an MSI Prestige 15 (current model). This MSI supports Thunderbolt 3 and the charger I normally use is USB-C. I tried the dock on this MSI computer and almost everything works as it should. Once the connection...

    Silverstone SG14 is coming in July!

    Looks good. The SG13 was too small for any real airflow. Also, I had to grind off a piece of metal to make it work. Eventually went back to a tower mITX case.

    Microsoft Game Pass Ultimate ($150 or less for 3 years - as low as $100)

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    I am amazed that anyone in their right mind would pay more than $50 total for a 939 board. Replacement or not. You can buy full off lease systems for $150 that are more powerful.

    Softbank Approaches TSMC and Foxconn for Potential ARM Buyout

    I don't understand ARM. They make chip designs and license them to Apple, Samsung, Qualcom. Ok. Then why is it that ARM chips from these three companies are so far apart in speed? Is ARM just like the general specification like x86? If that is the case, then ARM is just a patent holder rather...

    Does RAM speed make a performance difference outside of games?

    Thanks. I really love real world tests (something I love to do myself). It seems the gains get lower once you get to 3200. I noticed that most if not all high performance OEM systems just run the default 3000mhz.

    Does RAM speed make a performance difference outside of games?

    Currently looking into upgrading to an Intel 10700K system. I use a mITX case so I would like to stick to that. Problem is, mITX z490 motherboards are pretty expensive. (Bigger ones are not as bad). You can practically save $100 by going with an H470 variant and the only drawback for me will be...

    do people still tweak and overclock memory?

    I'd say back in the days when cheap chipsets let you, people used to do it more. But chipsets that let you do it are becoming more and more damn expensive. I have a B360 board (cheap) and it lets me set the timings but only lets me run RAM at 2666MHz. I am able to run CAS14 but that is about...

    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    If their 14nm was so inferior to TSMC's 7nm, AMD CPUs would be way way faster than Intel CPUs. And that isn't the case.

    This is Intel’s Top secret weapon against AMD

    Everyone likes to jump on them for being stuck on 14nm but I do not think that their 14nm is directly comparable to TSMC's 7nm. If it was, AMD chips should be way faster per core than Intel chips and that isn't the case.

    Rumor: 3080 31% faster than 2080 Ti

    All this is totally irrelevant. The ONLY question that is valid is the performance difference between a $250 card now and a $250 card once this next generation comes out. I have a real suspicion that it will be far less than 31% faster. Probably half that if we are lucky. The 3080 could easily...
