    What are you guys using for a router that you love?

    I have an Asus RT-AX86U. For me its been good, but i dont use much wireless most of my things are hard wired in. The few things i do use wireless on never had any issues or needed reboots outside of firmware updates.

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    very torn to preorder, buy in store or wait. When i bought my 3xl i got a google fi credit for the full purchase price of the phone so basically no phone bill for the next 2 years give or take. Would love to see a similar offer on the 6 but i doubt they will be doing anything like that again...

    Disney may be resurrecting Lucasfilm Games

    All I have been asking for is an "remastered" version of the x-wing/tie fighter series. I still have the originals and play them from time to time but would like to see updated graphics and controls. I guess the closest thing would be squadrons at the moment.

    strange isp problem

    I was thinking routing as well, but only from some IPs going to other IPs? I may need to see if they will hire me part time just to look at their network setup. I am very curios into what was going on. The only other thing I can think of might be some horrible QoS was implemented. but then...

    strange isp problem

    This is more for my curiosity to get people's opinions on what might have been going on. So I was having this problem with my ISP over the last 4 or 5 days where I could not VPN to work at all. Thankfully I was technically on vacation and didn't really have to work. From a packet capture on my...

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    Waiting for it to arrive but was able to snag a bundle from newegg. Should arrive Friday for my new build. I was following following a few discords and twitter accounts to get notifications.

    wow that seems amazing, grats on all the new hardware :). Now If I could just get a single GPU i would be done for the next 4-5 years.

    GPU stock numbers

    that would be that granular level stuff I am not sure if Nvidia or AMD would ever provide. If they said we sold 100 to HP and 5k to Dell, then those companies might start having issues with them for distribution. But if they could just say hey we shipped 10k units to USA, 5k to Mexico, etc...

    GPU stock numbers

    makes sense. I guess if the PR about "paper launches" were to ever actually affect these companies they might be a little more forward with such data. I can see good and bad about releasing such numbers publicly and am i am sure the companies weigh it on which would help profits if have any...

    GPU stock numbers

    I am wondering if anyone knows is there public data available to show things like NV or AMD sold x number of cards? for example NV sold 5,432 3080 GPUs. Or even better broken down to the retailer as an example Newegg sold 3 Asus 3060ti, 4 AMD 6800xt, 1 EVGA 3090 and so on? They may not have...

    my budget is my first limiting factor. I will shop within that and ignore anything outside of it for my use. Within that budget features required is next on my list for selection. If card 2 can do everything i need for that much less i am getting it. But if card 1 has a feature I...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    still cant get one to my cart to check out. i know in time the stock will meet demand but when i saw the pricing for partner boards it seems like they are either the same as the 3080s or in some cases more. at that point any pricing/performance advantage for me personally is eliminated and...

    I was hoping for an MSI or Sapphire board. After seeing the pricing on the partner boards with their mark up above the reference not sure anymore. For me personally was looking at 6800xt. with these prices the 6800xt are almost the same or more than the 3080. I know these are all very...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Thank you for the details on that. I have faith AMD will be shipping as much as possible to try and fill that void. I just long for the days of product being in stock for an hour versus gone in seconds/minutes. Meh will keep trying till i succeed.

    PS5 And Xbox Series X Scalpers Are Charging A Big Premium

    thank you. Yeah seems to be a decent profit then, I just dont think i could do that. The risk of not selling something and me being out time and money just isnt worth it.
