    WiFi 7 isn't supported on Windows 10

    Things break. I've had add-on cards die before. It's pretty easy to understand that if your laptop wifi card died you would replace it with a new one... not much point of having a laptop without wifi.... and hey... if I'm going to replace it, might as well add the best one, it's not like it's...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Priced at $600

    I guess that makes my 7700k worth like $63000 because think of how much faster it is compared to that 386 I paid $400 for back in 1990. The idea that it is faster so it should cost more is BS (for new generation same tier hardware). Nvidia needs people to upgrade since they sell hardware. No...

    Radeon RX 6800 GPU: now $440 at Newegg

    Not a bad deal i today's market, I still think midrange cards should never top $350 though.

    PNY 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive $8.95 @ Amazon

    At about that price you can get an enclosure and 512GB NVME which will be way faster and hold a lot more data.**********-NVMe-Enclosure-Gbps-Support/dp/B08G14NBCS

    Apple Has Procured TSMC’s Entire First Run of 3nm Chips

    Shame they cripple it with their locked down OS. Doesn't matter how good the hardware is if I can't run what I want on it. If sideloading apps through package files was a standard feature I'd switch over in a second.

    GPU Tariff Exemption Expires December 31, Could Spell Higher Graphics Card Prices

    Even if another exemption is granted, we're not going to see new midrange to high-end GPUs for $200~$300 any time soon. All this means is they aren't going to see any money from me any time soon. In 2010 I bought a brand new full warranty RTX 460 for $190 in the first month of launch...

    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    Gateway 14.1 and 15.6 1080p notebooks for $99 and $139

    Ebay has lots of good newly used stuff. I bought a laptop there for $189 shipped about 3 weeks ago. Dell 5400 with an i7-8665u, 16 gb ram, 256 ssd, 14 inch 1920x1080 ips, a good battery and charger. RAM was in single stick configuration so once it arrived I pulled the model number with cpuz...

    AMD B650 motherboards are now available, pricing starts at $159

    Wrong. 2019 wasn't over a decade ago. Order Details Ordered on February 17, 2019 The board was cheaper elsewhere, I just wanted to get it all in one shipment, but it was below $95 back then through non-amazon stores.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    No thanks. I'll just opt out and keep my 1070. Just because I have money to spend doesn't mean I'm going to be stupid about it and overpay. They can take their robbery prices and stuff them you know where.

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    Oh well, sounds like their problem, not mine. At the end of the day they need my money more than I need their luxury item. I have a list of interests longer than my finances allow, so I just cross off PC gaming and do something else, no skin off my back. I still say this whole thing is...

    Gamers Nexus investigates Rise and Fall of Artesian Builds prebuilt PCs

    That's ridiculous on the face of it alone, not saying you are lying, but it is ridiculous. A bit of common sense should prevail here. If it's a facility that *only* produces new goods or whatnot, then it's likely the contents/products inside the facility are all owned by the business and would...

    Gamers Nexus investigates Rise and Fall of Artesian Builds prebuilt PCs

    How the hell does a company get the balls to tray to sell things that don't belong to them? Like, if a auto repair shop folds up while my car is there they don't have the legal ability to sell my vehicle to somebody else.

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    This isn't a typical market though. Hordes of used cards are available now. Way more than in the past. The value depreciation of a card (new or used) this cycle is greater than in the past. If they don't want to go 50% off MSRP, that's fine, I'll keep my money and they can keep their card...

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    100% They can go to hell. Cards available for MSRP? Who cares, it's 2 year old tech at this point. I'll buy a "new" 3000 series at 50% off MSRP, otherwise go jump in a river. I'm not going to pay MSRP for old tech, end of story. You (nVidia) abandoned us gamers for miners, so why don't you...

    Crypto Miners, Not Gamers, Were The Primary Buyers of Graphics Cards Since 2021, Almost $15 Billion Worth of GPU Sales Reported

    Agree. Now also do what I'm doing. I won't buy a used card no matter what. Make them eat the hardware cost. It will discourage them from going bonkers again.

    Frustrated Father Accidentally Takes Down Town's Internet

    Was going to say basically this. I have two kids. The rule is no "entertainment" electronics (laptops, tablets, phones, etc.) in the bedroom after bed time. Period. Non entertainment electronics are fine, ie. an alarm clock. It really is that simple. Set up a rule. Enforce it. Done.

    Was cautiously optimistic since they had a good long time to put this together (matrix 4). The caution was warranted. This movie was boring to the point I didn't even bother finishing it - Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    Not surprising. This is what you get when your computing devices are "magic" and "just work". Kids get tablets and they use a touch interface to Launch colorful apps (not executable programs). They never interact with or even see the folder structure so why is it a surprise they don't know...

    Samsung makes Controller changes the right way

    Similar, the big difference to me is the Intel parts always seemed to get better - likely due to manufacturing process maturity, the products did not go backwards. G0 stepping was better than B3, but it came out after B3. Hard to complain about products getting better as time goes on...
