    AMD's Radeon RX 7900-series Leaks

    I do think this card will be a little lopsided on performance. It will do great on some games and others it may bomb. The chiplet design has its limitations but we will see.

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    The capture card is good. I have a demo here from Visiontek. I believe they discontinued it though.

    "nVidia finally responds to 4090 cables melting..."

    Luckily the cards I don't think were damaged. The dongles were melted but I believe the connectors were in tact. You would just have to clean the melted plastic and replace the dongle. I run a 4090 rated braided dongle on a 4080 and it doesn't even get warm.

    Scratched my motherboard with screwdriver. Am I in trouble?

    It takes you to scratch through the bare copper traces and cut off the traces for you to have problems. No problems with a surface scratch on the finish of the motherboard. If you want to protect from future scratches potentially in that area, Paint some MG Chemical Conformal coating on it. It...

    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    Get some MX4 and quit using Arctic silver. Also, use voltage offset and not curve optimizer. Make sure pump is running 100% speed in bios. Looks to be an older Asetek design.

    Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Offers Same Performance As Core i9-12900K With “Unlimited Power” at Just 80W

    No but you better have some extra headroom on your power supply in case of a CPU spike and a transient load spike on anything 3090 or higher. 1000w minimum.

    Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Offers Same Performance As Core i9-12900K With “Unlimited Power” at Just 80W

    Rocket Lake taps out Intel's 10nm, completely. I can't wait to see the 13900KS now for Power consumption. They have to be binning these now because as it stands, I can't see it going higher than the 5.8 boost.

    Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Offers Same Performance As Core i9-12900K With “Unlimited Power” at Just 80W

    Jay botched his review on a few points. Why do these reviewers call it a $589 CPU when its a $659 CPU!!! They keep putting the value proposition as the pricing intel releases per 1000 chips.

    TIM Pumping out/Drying Quickly. - 7950X

    I'd RMA/return it. Seems like they installed the heatspreader and glued it high on the corner. Can you lay the cpu flat to see if you see it raised on the bottom left?

    This BIOS still doesn't solve the 30 second POST but if you disable IGPU I think it solves a lot of issues.

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    Just moved over to a 7900x and Asrock X670E Steel Legend. Had to put the newest bios on because of the boot times were just insane. Cut the temps down to 85c max and with curve optimizer I did not lose performance. Just have a 30 second POST at every boot. I guess I have to wait for the BIOS to...

    Nvidia has "Unlaunched" the RTX 4080 12GB

    If they were already packaged wow that will cost some $. Hope Nvidia gives them a little back for the hassle. No wonder EVGA said nope not doing this anymore.

    Raja Koduri Q&D Intel Marketing

    It seems that every other reviewer are not having issues like Gamers Nexus is having. It makes me wonder if there is something wrong with his test bench at this point. I don't think he even mentioned resizable bar so maybe his review is incomplete as well.

    Raja's magic at work. Polaris all over again but with show stopper drivers. He should go work for Qualcomm because they are out of touch with the future of everything.
