    Silicon Valley Bank Collapses, Causes Concern Within Tech Industry, Roku Divulges its SVB Investments

    SVB is still a pretty big bank, just more commercially known that retail. Not sure the answer is more consolidation into the biggest banks. It’s hardly been good for the average person as that’s gone on for the last 20 plus years. Heck I did economics and worked for big banks back in the day...

    The rumored RTX 4090Ti/TITAN

    Threadripper 3000 series, add 7 fans, wc pump, a t400 in another slot and a bunch of ssds to the 3090 and you too can have a legitimate space heater at your feet. My KVM doesn’t work at high refresh unless it has short cables too, heaps of fun. Genuinely have been thinking about getting an...

    The rumored RTX 4090Ti/TITAN

    Insufficient power is such an insidious problem though, so easy to have it cause heaps of problems and you not know. My room gets too hot to even think about it atm anyway *sad*

    The rumored RTX 4090Ti/TITAN

    And here I thought my 1300w power supply would be enough. I can already get my box to 900 with a 3090 Shame it won’t be able to run vgpu

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Yeah same, the stock hunting was exhausting for a PS5. Luckily I got a day 1 3090 so didn’t get reamed on price. For this gen I’m not playing enough anyway but also without DisplayPort 2 etc it’s a bit limited. Hopefully by the time Ti version is out we’re getting DisplayPort 2 monitors and I...

    Facebook Parent Company Meta loses record $230B in one day.

    Glad I finally pulled the trigger and sold my shares in early December. I’ve had a moral issue for a while but it took a long time to put my money where my morals are. That aside, as the ads were getting insane recently I guessed it was going to not be great. I’ve noticed they always get worse...

    GTX 1080 Founders Edition Died - 12V to Ground Short

    this is such a cool thread. My electrical knowledge can be summed up as “don’t lick that live wire” but I appreciate people experimenting. It’s like the early days of the [H] before all the skill went out of overclocking

    MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ti SUPRIM X Specs Leak Out: 1900 MHz Extreme Mode Boost Clock & 1000W PSU Recommended

    I ordered on day 1 but it took 3 months. I’m in australia and just checked, any 3090 now is 70% more than I paid. It’s batshit crazy. Nearly has heart failure when it died. Luckily the rma went ok.

    How has Zen3 managed to maintain it's price after over a year?

    As others have said, selling pretty much everything they can make so no point in discounts. Can expect 7000 series to be another price jump because of that.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Have to agree. They need to get rid of Kurtzman. They’re messing up worse than DC. At least Star Wars is being rehabilitated with the TV. There are a couple of episodes of Discovery that were very good but that’s it in 4 years. Picard was trash, bad enough to make me feel poorly for Patrick...

    Anyone RMA'd a card recently?

    I did EVGA in December. Got a card from Taiwan in 2 days. Given flight times I thought that was crazy.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    it is in fact worse. What people refer to as woke is incredibly ham fisted, in and of itself nothing offends or bothers me. I loved Sense8 for example but it’s just shit writing. To the point of being detrimental. I think I’m done, Picard was an absolute shit show, Discovery has had a couple...

    AMD’s upcoming flagship GPUs should be 3x faster than RX 6900XT

    Literally today bought a 7.5m active DisplayPort cable so I can move my PC far enough behind me to give the air con time to pull the heat away. It’s a 120 year old full brick house with 10 foot ceilings so it’s not like I can go punching holes through walls all over, I’ve got wall mounted air...

    AMD’s upcoming flagship GPUs should be 3x faster than RX 6900XT

    I’d be happy if my next graphics card used less than the 400+w my 3090 does. If it ended up using more I’m gonna have to do some thinking. Sick of how hot my study gets

    Safe adhesive on pcb?

    Bit tricky atm as it's on water. It's one of the mount points on the cpu socket that the cooler goes into, I'm just rocking it with 3 pins installed at the moment. Works 'ok' apart from a few cores with higher temperature. Have work to do so couldn't go through another RMA round this close to...

    Safe adhesive on pcb?

    I had a screw post come free on a threadripper board (zenith ii extreme alpha). I was using the torque driver obviously, but it just snapped off when I put my Optimus block on. After just living with the warmer cores on a couple of ccds for a year, eventually took my pc apart for something else...

    Need help figuring out problem with SSD - Random 16.0 Read @ 4MB/S (too slow!)

    Latency is twice as high too I had problems with Sandisk drives before, maybe have a look at the smart data and see if there’s stuff showing. If that looks fine then do a firmware update and finally you can do a proper wipe on it can sometimes help with a couple of rarer faults (generally...

    Question about Threadripper Pro processors

    Pretty much all you can get now too. Compatibility with any Zen 3 versions is unknown. It’s likely, but anything aimed at business use (ie the mobos) doesn’t generally expect people to upgrade. You just depreciate and bin it.

    Intel 7700k to AMD 5900x

    I went from 7700k to 3960X and I was actually surprised how much of a difference it made in day to day snappiness of general office and windows stuff, not just the work stuff I bought it for. I imagine the Zen 3 stuff would be that and then some.

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    I think that’s nonsense, it’s all down to the company’s themselves. There are Chinese and British companies with extraordinary quality, just as there are some that are absolute shit. You’re just less able to do low margin low quality stuff on developed economy wages. If you’re doing contract...

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    It’s what investors require of you. Get people in and then crank the screws. I imagine someone will just have been seeing how much they can trim down the vgpu allocation until people squeal. If a fuss gets kicked up, say it was a mistake and roll back. Else just keep going. I made a lot of...

    Apple announces Self Service Repair

    You don’t really have much choice to use assemblies etc, the tolerances on modern devices are insane. It’s not like getting a waterproof computer arguably more powerful than a circa 2013 desktop, in a device weighing a couple of hundred grams is electronically trivial. Even 10 years ago they...

    AMD Celebrates 5 Years of Ryzen Processors

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    Local retailers in Australia still hadn’t fulfilled all the 3080 orders from Day 1 (particularly asus) before the Ti came out. My 3090 was the same price or cheaper than the 3080 Ti’s are now. All a bit mad. Then again I can’t get a new Xbox or PS5 either.

    Cloud services from a developers perspective

    Azure Devops is fine, it’s not really that close to azure itself except for aad and the attached services like repos are shit in comparison to just using GitHub.

    Cloud services from a developers perspective

    if you just do exactly what you do on premise in cloud, it’s 30% more expensive. Though lower if you have less than 1000 workloads, just factoring for staff, operations and maintainance. If you develop services that run in cloud native architectures then it will be far far cheaper but the...

    240W Extended Power Range USB C

    I wish lots of things would switch to USB-C tbh, or at least a standardised connector for lower than mains voltage. I’ve had enough of wall warts for things like KVMs and trying to match things up so they don’t pop. At least 240w will cover monitors etc
