  1. WarnerMedia Launching HBO Max Streaming Service on May 27th with a Handful of Original Series

    Maybe it'll do well enough to give us a proper GoT S8 remake.
  2. AMD Launches Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X with Zen 2 Cores and SMT, Bringing Eight Threads to the Family

    New budget masters! Those are some stout specs for their low prices of admission.
  3. Possibly upgrading to Ryzen 7 platform - help wanted

    Hello everyone, After a weekend staycation and some gaming, I've really started noticing my computer's age. Looking to possibly upgrade, although I may just put it off until the next-gen GPUs and AMD CPUs emerge, probably in about another year from now. CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X MoBo: Asus X570 TUF...
  4. MSI MEG X570 Unify Motherboard Review

    Wow, thank you for all the insight and advice, @Dan_D Much appreciated!
  5. MSI MEG X570 Unify Motherboard Review

    Nice review, and nice MoBo! I'm thinking of going MSI for the next overhaul (R7 3700X). Here would be my typical usage scenario: - Use the AMD Wraith HSF - No CPU OC'ing (primarily gaming, so I'm more focused on the GPU) - All DIMM slots populated (4x8GB single rank modules) - Single GPU...
  6. Windows 10 Gets Prettier: Microsoft Begins Rolling Out Beautiful New Icons for Insiders

    I like these new icons. I'm no longer opted in to the Insider builds, but it'll be cool when they get released in a future public revisionary update.
  7. “Birds of Prey” a Monumental Flop for WB: Female Superhero Film Opens at Just $33 Million

    Out of that list, I really liked Suicide Squad, loved Wonder Woman, and thoroughly enjoyed Shazam. The others...meh. DC just lacks the "oomph" factor when it comes to making most of their movies, IMO.
  8. "Intel in jeopardy" insiders say - Much worse than what Intel is saying...

    Yikes. Intel is suffering from their own Coronavirus and, similarly to the real thing, it's way worse than being reported. ...Should name their next-gen "Wuhan Lake".
  9. Time to go AMD...

    Jealous. I'm eyeing the MSI X570 Carbon, 32GB of single rank DDR4-3200, and a 3700X or 3800X, but an upgrade will have to wait until much later this year or possibly next year's tax return due to a bunch of house upkeep issues that just sprang up. Le sigh.
  10. PSU Tech Look: Cable Length and Voltage Regulation

    Approaching this with the eyes of someone who's gone through EE classes, that's a great review/comparison. No difference at these voltage and amperage levels, as expected.
  11. The next battle ground for video cards... Ray Tracing and other next gen features.

    Today's consumer grade RTRT seems like it's just a "oooh, shiny (and reflecty)" tech demo, rather than a feature set that stands above. My gut tells me that real-time ray tracing hardware for the consumer segment is in such a stage of infancy that it will be at least another 5 years until it's...
  12. Ubisoft Undergoes Major Restructuring Following Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Division 2 Failures

    Hmmm, I like the way you think: like combining elements of the Space Quest series, Freelancer, Starfleet I/EGA Trek, Dark Forces/Jedi Knight/Force Unleashed, X-Wing/Tie Fighter, and the very old classic Sundog Frozen Legacy.
  13. Ubisoft Undergoes Major Restructuring Following Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Division 2 Failures

    While I agree that Ubisoft needs to restructure in this fashion in order to boost customer interest and sales performance for future titles of these franchises, I am rather happy with UPlay and the Far Cry franchise. What I wish they would delve into is a single-player open world space sim...
  14. AMD Ryzen 5 Mobile 3500U Vega 8 iGPU Review

    Wow, very nice review! You know, it's rather impressive that AMD is able to squeeze out dGP MX150 performance out of an IGP with that low of a TDP configuration.
  15. What's your favourite motherboard ever?

    Yes, sir! It housed Gigabyte's "DPS Module"
