    Further Big Price Cut on AM5 at Newegg, Amazon, B&H Photo, and probably others 7950x @ $550-$555 and 7900x @ $474

    thinking going to go from asrock x99 extreme4, 5930k, 32GB DDR4 to asrock pro RS x670e, 7700x, 32GB 6000mhz DDR5 for $700. Also considered 7950x and the Taichi mobo, but they're + ~ 200 each for things that I probably wont use/notice a different (gaming 4k). And I guess I can always upgrade to...

    Nvidia has "Unlaunched" the RTX 4080 12GB

    I was 100% right about 3080 vs 4080 12GB being == performance @ the same clocks. lol. lmao. 4090 is < 2x performance > 2 yrs later for > 2x the price i bought my 3080 for. The others are even worse.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    i was debating a guy at work. I said that my 3080 would be identical to a 4080 12gb (4070) if you clocked them the same. He insisted the shitty 4080 would be MUCH faster. what do you guys think? Less cores on 4080, but better arch, so about a tie is my reasoning for my thinking.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    It's 2x faster in RT when you play a game on it with DLSS 3 vs a 3090ti with DLSS 2. Fake numbers, fake comparisons, more wattage heat and noise.

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    No. I took off the plastic off of every possible piece. But they put the plastic UNDEARNEATH the freaking screws. There were multiple complaints from people. They admitted it was their fault and stopped nailing plastic with screws in a later revision. I'm glad you had a good time with them, as...

    [Rumour] Intel to cut back on Arc discrete GPU

    do i buy calls because they're letting go of an unprofitable business or puts because they are going to get no return on this investment? :whistle:o_O

    How long is a 12700k setup good for?

    i really dont understand people buying the absolute newest CPUs that don't actually make any difference for what the user needs it to do. GPUs, okay. CPUs every single new release? Really? edit: also who gives a flying f what other nerds on some internet forum think?

    5800x3D - How can it be tamed?

    Yes. I saw "Overwatch, Battlefield 2042, even old games like Unreal Tournament 2004... it doesn't matter what it is, the frame rates are much higher." That to me means that the framerates were lower previously. Maybe I did read it wrong. but at 4k+ i limit my refresh to 117 for gsync on this...

    Will Zen 4 be the real deal and a worthy upgrade from Zen 3

    yeah, there are limited applications that are starting to make my 5930k feel old (ubisoft DRM filled games). Now that i'm thinking about upgrading... i can upgrade my X99 from a 5930k to a higher freq more core 6xxxk but thats also ancient by now and would likely not improve things much in...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    So I took your suggestions and tried to dust the PSU out. I also put my smartphone light through it and it looks normal. I have a case where the PSU is mounted upside down, and because of that there was no dust, like at all in the PSU -- it looks brand new. I then put it on its side...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    You may be onto something. I have a fan cable from the front of the case that is an absolute pain in the ass to get to in this case that rubs against the fan I believe. Doesn't always happen, but always on startup, and usually stops making that noise after 2 minutes or so. You think that it's...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    Had some corsair AIO that started leaking, replaced it 2 yrs ago with a Noctua NH-D15S I saw that the temps were OK for CPU and GPU. It actually didn't seem to help the temps when I added that big box fan (but it was pointed downwards in this big case, so maybe that's why?) I think i also...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    edited above post since i heard a single pop 5 minutes ago no radiators for ~ 2 years now. I'm going to try and buy a PSU today. that G+ P+ Evga one doesn't sound the best.. trying to find a good 850-1200 watt for a reasonable price now. (super flower / seasonic / high end CWT (corsair) I...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    All work, although i've got a huge (E-ATX) case and not great airflow. I've had the side panel off for years as well. The PSU fan seems to be working, although its pointed downwards. Never dusted the PSU, kind of doubting that fixes it. There were times I've felt the PSU and it was running...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    I'd probably fry myself. Yes serious. Can't see anything that looks damaged. any link? wasn't Johnnyguru the best PSU reviews? the website is down. I saw a Corsair RMX Series (2021), RM1000x for $165, a cheap EVGA 850 Bq for $65, but i dislike Evga and it doesn't seem very good, but it is...

    PC shuts down after 5 min of gaming

    My PC shut itself down 5 minutes into playing yesterday and rebooted. Happened again after the reboot. I didnt play for 2 hours after that and it never crashed. The next day I tried a different game, same thing -- crash. I then put a big box fan right near the PC, pointed down at the PSU and...

    I got the 10 feet blue one today. When I play overwatch in windowed full screen or full screen with Gsync the screen flickers to a gray/pixelated image for a second before returning to normal. Happened multiple times. I turned gsync off and it didn't happen once. With the other cable it used to...

    Thanks! I didn't know I could get a 10ft one that did 120+4:4:4+10bit+HDR+gsync. I thought they were limited to 6. When I selected only the fullscreen mode for gsync, it kept happening but at a much reduced rate which is interesting. I also tried to OC it just for laughs. It seems to accept...

    I saw the 42 C2 available and grabbed it. Have a 65 B7. 120hz is something! However, I think I found an issue. Do you guys also have it? When I had Gsync turned on and I tried 120hz 10bit RGB HDR i kept getting these flickers, like something was wrong with the cable or connection. I tried...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    any pointers for which settings to use with v1.5? 3080 with 4k. No VRR. the first minute of the game is giving me ~ 28 FPS with DLSS Quality and whatever else they pre-filled for the settings and it feels BAD.

    PC game prices higher than consoles lately

    Anyone notice that PC games don't drop in price as much or as fast as the console games nowadays? Cyberpunk has been $10 on consoles (now $5 @ gamestop) for a while now. It was ~ $30 with the last PC sales. Assassins creed is similar. Right now $15 for consoles. Never hit close to that price...

    Anyone still running an X99 Broadwell-E system?

    still on a 5930k. runs everything well. when people have widespread issues this system doesn't most of the time which is interesting. only thing that uses a lot of cycles is DRM filled ubisoft games. nothing else comes close.
