    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro enhanced trade-in credit and promo gift card @ BestBuy

    Have you seen the video going through smartphone CPUs? they show, in comparison to other chips, the Tensor 1 as being garbage. It was a low-low-end chip, yet they charged mid-tier to high-tier prices. I'd say the pixel 6 should've had a much lower starting price. Now with Pixel 7, with their...

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    I think this will happen with other AIBs too. As politicians make certain decisions..... and resources become more scarce and expensive, things will become more expensive for consumers and provide lower margins for companies like EVGA. It won't be profitable any longer to produce anything. I...

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

    I went and picked up a 5900X from a local MC. That 5800X is coming down in per-core price, interesting... I've got all my parts except: mobo, and a gpu. I'm waiting on the mobo until I get a GPU. I don't have a bot, I just have F5 and ctrl+F5. I hope I can pickup a GPU from AMD at a...

    Microcenter has dropped price ...AMD 5800x $429

    If the 5800x were $369.99 , I could be moved to get one. Right now, even with the discount ($429), the 5800x is the most expensive on a per-core $ amount. It's the worst deal of the 5000 series. I'm looking out for the 5900x, for my use case.

    PSA: Windows 7 support ends tomorrow, Jan 14, 2020

    An operating system should act as a platform so you, the user, can do what he or she wants. But with Windows 10 you are forced to have telemetry (it's OS integrated spyware, but since they told you about it you can't call it spyware anymore because it needs to be without your knowledge). I don't...

    PC Sales to Decline in 2019 Amid CPU Shortages, Weak GPU Market

    There won't be a 'death' of the PC, it'll just 'evolve' to service based access and and streamed utilization from the cloud. Local installation and storage will be phased out. Recently there was the front page article showing Office 2019 vs Office 365 and how the service based Office 365 was...

    RX 580 and 590 Could Get Price Cuts Soon

    Does this all matter any more? Who cares when Navi comes out. When you go to Steam and look at the top games... will you need a new GPU? Most of the top games will do just fine on a cpu with integrated graphics. I'm thinking we are in the dark ages of PC gaming at the moment. There needs to be...

    Netflix Cancels The Punisher And Jessica Jones

    They Daredevil-ified the Punisher on Netflix. It seemed like too much fist fighting, like Daredevil. Daredevil on its own was good, but the Punisher is something else. He's all about firearms, weaponry. Those should have been front and center, but they weren't as much. The Netflix show had the...

    AMD Confirms Refreshed Radeon Product Stack for 2019

    The chiplet design will make AMD keep more money and allow them to use it for R&D and other projects to better compete. Same 7nm as the server, now in desktop. So any silicon that isn't up to the server level quality, will get binned down to the consumer. If they do chiplet with the next PS...

    Looking back at Adoredtv's video... consumer 7nm GPU... info of the 16GB HBM was known and the price was estimated from the Red gaming tech piece. So this Radeon 7 was a result of a concern that AMD had nothing to compete with NVIDIA. So they produced 7nm Vega. But after seeing not so...

    NVIDIA Releases Its Financial Results for Third Quarter Fiscal 2019

    I recall seeing a chart that a high percentage of Nvidia's profits come from consumer card sales. They raise the prices of their cards, who will buy? Are people getting salary increases? Are they trying to pull an Apple? Raise prices to compensate for fewer unit sales? You see AMD has not...

    Netflix Pulls the Plug on Marvel’s "Luke Cage"

    All of the Marvel Netflix shows follow the DareDevil formula of hand to hand fights most of the time. Even the Punisher falls victim to this mindset. These shows need lots of special effects and they think with fist fights they'll save money.

    Intel Reports Second-Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Intel will slash prices? It's a monolith cpu. I bet Jim Keller is going to help Intel design the Intel version of...
