    AMD EPYC Rome 64-Core Server Versus Intel Dual Socket Xeon Platinum Benchmark

    Lisa Su in that video reminding the guy "But [dont say] the freqeuncy!" was pretty hillarious.

    Alternatives to Precision XOC for EVGA iCX cards?

    For the last few days I've been dealing with BSODs on Windows 10. Minidumps are pointing to EVGA Precision as the cause. I was using the latest version of their software on Windows 10 Pro version 1803. If you are on Windows 10 and they pushed the update to you, beware of this issue. Finding an...

    Cryptocurrency's Big Winner & Big Loser

    Since you all jumped to blaming the victim on the cryptocurrency theft and all, thought you might want to see the person on the other side. Multiple felony counts of grand larceny on the way.

    Cryptocurrency's Big Winner & Big Loser

    The guy who lost his crypto didn't get "hacked" due to malware or storing cryptocurrency on his phone. AT&T's actions directly led to the theft of his cryptocurrency. The $200 million punitive damage claim is a stretch, I would agree...

    Vega Rumors

    Any proof of work coin that isn't dominated by ASICs will do. Right now that means anything other than SHA256 (Bitcoin algo) and Scrypt (Litecoin, Dogecoin algo). Play around with altcoin mining calculators like WhatToMine to get an idea of what your daily revenue will be. You definitely want to...

    Check Out This Xbox One X Tear-Down

    Anyone who bought the Xbox One X for holiday resale price markup is kinda screwed. They're in stock everywhere. The hype from Major Nelson before the release is now a joke. He was saying 'pre-order this thing because demand is high and they will go out of stock fast'. In the video he said he...

    Gigabyte 1080 Ti Waterforce card

    I installed one of the 1080Ti FTW3 Hybrids in my system about two weeks ago and it's been running great. My only complaint with the card is that there's no RPM control for the fan on the radiator, so when it's sitting there idle the fan is slightly loud. Haven't thought of any mods for fixing...

    WD Easystore External Discussion

    I'm going to keep the enclosure in the retail packaging just in case for warranty reasons. I assume that if I ever needed to RMA the sucker it would have to go back in the enclosure and look like I never tore the thing apart.

    WD Easystore External Discussion

    Yup, price back down to $169.99. I had been waiting for the price to drop again. Just bought two through the website for store pickup tomorrow.

    The Vega Pre-Order Thread

    The 1080 Ti version I have my eye on is $849.99. You're right, but I've been willing to go with Vega (at SEP price) because I have a 1440p Freesync monitor. May just throw that idea out and get the 1080 and see if AMD can pull their heads out of their asses with the Navi release. Definitely...

    Vega Rumors

    Demand will always outpace supply if AMD only provides FOUR Vega cards to retailers, like Microcenter. I'm not buying their statements about demand. It's pretty clear they just have little to no supply.

    Vega Rumors

    Does it matter if we can't even buy the things? This launch is a joke. AMD delayed the release this long just to have cards go out of stock in 10 minutes?

    It looks like they had about 10 of the liquid cooled 64 cards in stock on Newegg today.

    Ethereum Hashrate Performance Drop Might Be Coming

    ASICs for Ethereum don't exist yet, and probably never will. The VRAM needed to mine Ethereum efficiently is actually pretty high, so the 8GB 480 models should be the best fit.

    FireFox Really Slow

    Thanks for the additional comments everyone. Yeah, that may help. This slowness has shown up across two desktops running Windows 10 and one laptop running Windows 7. It's not a single computer that I'm experiencing this problem with. I use Lastpass, uBlock Origin, and HTTPS Everywhere as...

    FireFox Really Slow

    Thanks. Good to know others are experiencing the same thing. I'd definitely prefer to stay with Firefox, but it's been affecting my productivity. Opera is a branch of Chrome right?

    FireFox Really Slow

    Recently has anyone been experiencing extreme slowness when using Firefox? It's been so bad and, with the number of tabs I keep open (20-30), it's been consuming ~3GB of memory regularly. I keep FireFox on auto-update, so assume this is with the latest versions over the last couple months. I...

    Bitcoin Mining Has Taken all of the AMD RX 580 GPU stock?

    Your transaction size wont be larger, it wont even be a full kB that you're currently quoting. Conservative estimate for typical transaction size is 200 bytes.

    Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 16.12.2 Release Notes

    Is that's what happened to me today? Yesterday I upgraded to 16.12.1 and when I came back to my computer at some point today, the screen wouldn't wake up from the auto power down.

    ENDED - Square Enix Holiday Surprise Box (Christmas 2016)

    The 2015 holiday box made me mad. Never again. They basically gave you a demo to Life is Strange (only Episode 1) and 30 days of playtime for FFXIV, so it was just a lead in to having you spend more money on Square games. Admittedly, I did play the Lara Croft game for quite a bit.

    The Slow Death Of The Manual Transmission

    I have a manual in my Subaru WRX and I'm getting tired of it to be honest. Had to get it replaced earlier this year for $1500 in order to fix a persistent squeaking noise and the clutch action still isn't as smooth as when I first got the car. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo MR is a great choice for...
