    Screwed by EVGA

    The queue works very well for 3090. Got my 5th notification for 3090 as of yesterday. Only got 1 for 3080. I'd imagine the demand and wait time is much longer for 3080's and lower tier card. EVGA like other manufacturers are focusing the precious GPU's on higher profit SKU aka 3090's. Can't...

    Help. Realtek audio driver on mini itx board only produce sounds on 1 of 2 front speakers

    As the title said I have a Asus X570 mini ITX board and the realtek onboard sounds will only produce sound on 1 out of 2 speakers. It used to work even though one side was louder than the other. Now sound only comes out of one of two front speakers. I have donwloaded the latest driver from...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    My faithful Asrock X370 died after 4 years of service. Time to retire the OG 1700x CPU. Problem is I cannot find 5900x CPU at all. Now I am left without a functional computer sigh.

    Dead: Ballistix 16GB kit (2x8) DDR4 3000 Amazon Black Friday $99

    Good deal and comparable to the Adata DDR4 deal from rakuten. Got 2 sets. Not sure if ram prices will drop as predicted. It seems like the manufacturers always come up with excuses to jack up the price aka "price fixing".

    Tesla Is About to Feel the Heat as Electric Car Manufacturers Roll Out New Cars

    Tesla shall remain a luxury vehicle brand for the foreseeable future. The profit margin isn't high on model 3 and will be even less with the base $35k model 3. Given Tesla's shaky financial situation, they cannot afford to make low profit margin vehicles yet. I think the sub $40k is where the...

    Alienware AW3418DW 34" Ultrawide

    Unboxed and played BF1 on it last night. The Fast and Super Fast response time introduced artifact and tearing. Best to keep it on normal and set refresh rate to 120 Hz. FPS mode makes the color super saturated like Samsung phone OLED screen and increases the dark stabilizer option (make the...

    Alienware AW3418DW 34" Ultrawide

    Man, I hope the light bleed is minimal. Picked up the Asus PG348Q a while back and the light bleed is brutal. Needless to say I returned it and stuck with the LG 34 in until something better comes out such as this Alienware monitor.

    Alienware AW3418DW 34" Ultrawide

    The Dell is also on sale for $999 now. Dell warranty is far better than other companies when it comes to monitor. They let you exchange for light bleed, even 1 dead pixel, and advance exchange in which a replacement is sent out prior to you returning the old/defective monitor. I have bought...

    iPhone X tonight! Who’s pre-ordering ( or trying to lol )

    2-3 weeks shipping time for T mobile. Not as bad as I have thought. Was expecting 2-3 months at least given the shortage rumor. Preorerded silver 256 GB on T-mobile. Have a pixel 2 XL sitting next to me. Decision decision. Should I return to the dark side?

    Google Pixel and Pixel XL 2

    If I had to pay the full amount of $950+tax then it's a sounding NO for me. However, with the $410 credit for trading in Pixel XL and the free google home mini, the price drops to $610 and I can accept the less than stellar screen quality.

    Google Pixel and Pixel XL 2

    I checked out the phone at Verizon store and the blue tint is there and only noticeable with white background/color. For the darker objects, there is also a slight shift in tone but they are minor at best. The rounded edge of the screen is useless since the actual viewing area is a rectangle...

    Google Pixel and Pixel XL 2

    Got my replacement Pixel XL 128GB for the defective Nexus 6P. Google will let me trade the XL in for $410 off the Pixel 2 XL order. Adding the Google home mini as icing on the cake. Pretty good deal overall.

    Pixel 2 “Walleye” and “Taimen” Specifications Revealed

    I was hoping that the new pixel xl 2 will have the screen size of the note 8 (6.3 in). No headphone jack, no expandable memory, smaller screen, ? water resistance, I may have to go back to the Note series this year.

    The Definitive AMD Ryzen 7 Real-World Gaming Guide @ [H]

    i7 2600k has hyperthreading vs non for i5. As for as I know BF1 does not utilize hyperthreading so if the overall clock speed is similar, the performance between i7 2600k vs i5 2500k should be similar, no? I will record my frame rate between the 2 systems again and see if my experience will...

    The Definitive AMD Ryzen 7 Real-World Gaming Guide @ [H]

    Great article. Thank you for putting in the tremendous effort and time into this article. I should share my limited experience since it was quite different from your result. I recently upgraded from Intel i5 2500k (oc'ed to 4.6 Ghz, 16 GB ddr3) to Ryzen 1700x (oc'ed to 3.9 Ghz, 16 GB ddr4)...

    AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU vs 1700X CPU Review @ [H]

    Found this interesting review of Ryzen 1700 OC'ed to 3.9 Ghz vs Kabylake 7700k OC'ed to 5.0 Ghz on gaming at 1080p and 1440p. I wonder if Intel will retaliate by dropping 7700k price.

    AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU vs 1700X CPU Review @ [H]

    Thinking of upgrading my well seasoned Intel 2500k. I need recommendation from [H] readers. Ryzen 1700 for $330 or Kabylake 7700k for $300 (Microcenter)? I predominantly game and will pair one of these CPU's with one GTX 1080 Ti at 3440x1440 at 100 Hz.

    GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Evaluation Thoughts

    Please include ultra wide 3440x1440 resolution with 100 Hz refresh rate. And it would be interesting to pair 1080 TI with Intel 7700k vs AMD 1700x.

    Overclocked 2500k (4.6ghz) good enough 1080p gaming with 1060?
