    Just got an order cancellation email from Microcenter due to no product availability. Guess I wasn't so lucky after all :(

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    I get that. But I was thinking lack of 3950x was due to chiplets being allocated to server parts (where the real $$$ is) That doesn't explain a 12nm 4-core/8-thread part with integrated GPU...hence why I'm still at a loss to explain the 3000G

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    I get there not being 3950x due to 'global shortage'. I don't get the lack of availability of Athlon 3000G. Feels like there's more to the story.

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    1) That's amazon.co.uk...not amazon.com (US). Just searched - not available from Amazon.com 2) The amazon.co.uk listing (that I found) currently lists for $65 vs $49 MSRP. To be fair, I'd have no problems ordering from Amazon.uk if the pricing was comparable (or carried a couple dollar...

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    Oh - I got it. I thought you meant it was shipping from AMD.com to consumers (e.g. that's how I bought my Radeon VII)

    Can you post a link? I searched AMD.com yesterday and today. Nothing.

    Microsoft returning to Flight Simulator in 2020

    No, it comes with the Airbus alternate-law feature where the stall warning indicator shuts off the more you pull back on the stick.

    Uber now worth 73 billion.

    That's today's incarnation of Amazon that you're talking about. And this post is not defending Uber...but remember that Amazon started off as an online bookstore (with videos and music also). Just like every other hyper-successful business, there were some good ideas coupled with future...

    Great episode. I'll probably build a 12-core myself to replace my i7-6700k

    Millenium Falcon Ride Disney World exclusive

    Correction: Disneyland opening is tomorrow. World opening is later on this summer. Unless they changed the date literally yesterday, which I know they did not.

    WTB: Microsoft Surface Pro & Google Pixel C

    Don't need the pen, however I do think I want to stick with the Pixel - although the Galaxy Tab is certainly nice. Thanks for the offer. Still looking for both - Surface Pro and Pixel C

    WTB: Microsoft Surface Pro & Google Pixel C

    So my Pixel C bit the big one last weekend. Looking to replace it. Also looking to upgrade my ancient netbook that I travel with. Looking for something like a Microsoft Surface Pro 2017. Would consider a Surface Pro 6 for the right price. Hit me up and let me know what you got.

    Uber reveals IPO plans.

    As a counter-point, I'll remind everybody that there was this online bookstore called Amazon.com that was founded in 1994, IPO'd in 1997, and didn't turn a profit until 2001 (?). So Uber's deal certainly isn't 'unique'. As far as their business model - I think it's actually excellent. The...

    Paul_Johnson Thanks for all your hard work over the years. I think the PSU reviews on [H] were some of my favorite content. And this was a very cool article to close out on!

    Always enjoyed your PSU reviews, Paul. You always did an excellent job through the years. And to think I still have two of these things laying around and still working. :) Hope to see you around!

    Radeon VII Owner's Club!

    Saw the console window open and close. Did NOT see an error. It seems to be OK now...the BIOS Part number in Radeon Settings is 113- D3600200-106 with a date of 02/11/2019. I SWEAR when I updated that Radeon settings was still reporting the -105 BIOS rev with the January Build date. I must...

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    My RedDevil Vega64 was bigger (and heavier) than my Radeon vii, FWIW.

    Radeon VII Owner's Club!

    I'll tell you what, editing videos on the timeline in Wondershare Filmora is butter smooth with my Radeon VII. And that's coming from an RX Vega64. 16GB of HBM rocks. Haven't done much gaming as of yet, but plenty happy with my purchase!

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    Yes...I think pretty much everyone in this thread who got one other than myself is planning on ebaying them. I kid :) My comment was referring to the rumors that only 5000 cards would be available and once they're gone AMD wasn't going to make any more.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    It'll be interesting to see what happens after today. I think AMD was leading us to believe that they'd have stock to go around. Judging by the difficulties people are having ordering, that seems not to be the case. We'll have to see if that's just a launch day thing or not.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    I do I don't know if I'd call them second best these days, but I took a quick look at Anandtech's and it seemed halfway decent. But I was going to buy regardless since I'm a hobbiest content Creator and wanted it for those purposes in addition to gaming.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    FYI (not bragging - just stating) my order at AMD.com shows as pending with my CC, so it LOOKS like I got one. edit: Also got the confirmation email.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    So...what time do sales go live? Disappointed that I signed up for notifications from AMD but have yet to get even one.

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    AMD Radeon VII Unboxing and Teardown Video @ [H]

    Already planning to purchase on Thursday. Hope to get a reference card from ATI Markham (just like I did my 9800 XT). Well yes, I know the above won't happen - but I can dream.

    Intel to Discontinue the Last of the Itaniums

    We actually purchased a few workstations at my employer during the same timeframe (circa 2001). For our application (Computational Fluid Dynamics) the Itanium actually kicked ass and took names, and was easily the highest performing platform bar none. Sadly, I think CFD was one of the very few...

    Microsoft Guy: Mozilla Should Give Up on Firefox and Go with Chromium Too

    That's nice, except that I had Opera (Chromium based) bork on two key websites for me lately (one a banking website, the other my cell phone provider). Firefox worked out of the box. Still, as a general comment, a sad state of affairs that users are required to keep multiple browsers around to...
