    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti Rumored Specifications Appear

    Thanks for this. What I've noticed over the years is games have always run better on the Intel/Nvidia side of things. Whether that remains true for future releases is another matter. In addition, gaming at 2k has changed my thoughts some, as being GPU bound makes CPU brand choice less...

    Throttling is actually very common these days in many different cases. For example, many SSD controllers will throttle at higher temperatures. It's one of the reason why so many motherboards these days include heatsinks for the M.2 slots. Those SSD controllers are still designed to work just...

    I'm thinking you're not wrong here. Whatever comes next for motherboards on AMD should be really good.

    I don't think it should be needed on a chipset, and if it is, it shouldn't be located where the GPU is going to go over an active cooling solution. The whole setup there speaks of bad design and a point of failure. There are a ton of boards out there that don't require this, just not for x570.

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    If marketing is to be believed most chipsets are designed to be subjected to these conditions as well, without fans. I'm not sure how much throttling occurs under full load or heated conditions, I've never tested this, and I've never seen such reports. I'm not saying that information doesn't...

    Addressing this reply specifically, I think you know that's not a direct comparison. These parts are expected to be actively cooled and have much more robust solutions for doing so.

    That's really all I could think of as well. Some of them are saying how durable the Delta fan they installed is, 60,000 hours and all that. Don't they know what images come to mind when you say "delta fan"? Delta isn't a name I think of as being quiet, but at least I can think of that as...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti Rumored Specifications Appear

    Actual developers have been coy about how they’re going to deliver 4K content to the PS4 Pro. Johan Anderrson claims that Frostbite 3 is using a custom method of delivering 4K that’s neither native “or” upscaled but something altogether different. From the article you linked, that made me...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti Rumored Specifications Appear

    But we also know that both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are made to deliver fantastic gaming at 4K resolution. For the TVs selling now, that will mean 4K resolution at 60 frames per second (fps). That matches what the current Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro can do, though most current-generation games...

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    Good to know. I was considering that if I bought one of these boards doing exactly that. 15W shouldn't really require a fan imho, but evidently they thought it does. Must have been in the specs for it to appear on literally every board but one. Now if only Ryzen was winning the single thread...

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    Oh true, there are boards that are in that price range on both sides, no issue there. But any board that requires a fan in that location is a hard no from me. If it didn't run hot, it wouldn't need a fan. I'm pretty sure the engineers did the math.

    Chipset fans on the motherboard? Not in the last 10 years, and not now. Taking a hard look at AMD's boards since Ryzen seems actually good it's the same damn problem that it has always been. AMD makes a good chip but what are you going to run it on? You could go for a B550, but that seems...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti Rumored Specifications Appear

    Been very happy with my 1080TI from EVGA, except for that mess they call software. I wasn't interested in the 2080 and I'm still not, but I'm eager to see what this generation brings. I'm thinking that Nvidia isn't going to change pricing a lot from what we see now. NVIDIA TITAN RTX...

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Video Card Review @ [H]

    An extra 100W at 4 hours a day that costs 13 cents a kilowatt hour costs about $20 a year to operate. If you keep that for three years you can straight up add $60 to the cost of the card. If you average more usage you can increase this cost, as that's only 28 hours a week at load. If you plan...

    Good article. If it were me I'd just cover 100% of the mounting surface with a thin layer like you did without the extra dot of sauce. Cool to watch, thanks for the video. A lot of new ideas in personal computing started as ghetto mods, don't knock it :D

    Thanks. Looks like a good value for the price. I've really given Freesync and AMD more thought than ever now. I still can't get used to curved screens, it's like you mention the depth perception is funky. I've always liked Dell. Omen and Vega seems a strong hand.

    Thanks. If RX can do 70 on the same memory with new drivers what does that say about FE? At least 70 or more? Well yeah, but waiting for reviews isn't the point of a rumors thread ;) I'm agreeing with you, but what are you basing this on?

    Vega Rumors

    It's an indirect comparison, saying FE has nothing to do with RX isn't quite true either. But yeah, better drivers and better memory speed might be something higher than 28~40? In any case I think miners are going to be buying. I think you do but I'll ask, do you like the Omen? It caught my...

    Yeah, it is (the FE). And he says he thinks it'd be faster once the drivers are updated... unlocked I think is the word he used. There's a lot of crosstalk, some say BS on 70ish some say 70-100, some say 40 is all we will see. He's outright saying you should buy them for mining though. I'm...
