  1. Top Gun: Maverick Passes $800 Million, Becoming Tom Cruise’s Biggest Box Office Hit Ever

    The MI movies did well but were never block-busters. His last block-buster was Top Gun.
  2. AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800X: A Cache Value?

    Disappointed with the MS2020 gains. Yes 9% in 4K or similar in VR I suppose. Clock a non 3D chip up and we have diminishing returns with the 3D. If the price was the same then hell ya. But right now based on those well made graphs nope.
  3. AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT Only 2% Percent Faster than Radeon RX 6700 XT: GFXBench

    I have a feeling the improved memory bandwidth will help with 4K numbers. How could it not. Benchmark was probably done @ 1080p.
  4. Intel’s Comet Lake-S Processors Feature Thinner Dies and Thicker Heat Spreaders for Improved Thermals

    Article says thicker heat spreaders. One would imagine Intel has done some steps to help get the extra 100-300 extra MHz headroom they required.
  5. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Will Require 150 GB of SSD Space and 32 GB of RAM for the Ideal Experience

    No, but he would use the regular flight controls of his setup just fine.
  6. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Will Require 150 GB of SSD Space and 32 GB of RAM for the Ideal Experience

    I guess with these specs we aren't going VR. At least now outta the gate.
  7. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Will Require 150 GB of SSD Space and 32 GB of RAM for the Ideal Experience

    They goofed on the GPU spec. This is what happens when some non-PC folk is assigned to do the chart. High-end seems fine RTX2080 and Radeon7. Very close. Now mid-tier. RX590 or GTX970. 4GB. What? RX590's only come with 8GB and the old but solid 970 has 3.5GB. And the 970 is a ways back of a 590...
  8. Ryzen “AF”: AMD Releasing Ryzen 5 1600 CPUs Manufactured under 12 Nm “Zen+” Process

    Okay missed this: [A] likely explanation is that these are simply Ryzen 5 2600 die that didn't make the cut for that class of chip due to frequency targets, but because they meet the criteria required for a 1600 model, it is simply more economical for AMD to use the die in the older chips...
  9. SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 4G OC Review

    There are no 5500's yet. Only XT's and they compete with the 1650S.
  10. SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 4G OC Review

    Well it looks like Lisa is set on those profit margins she set out. Also they need to finish off the stock of 5-70/80/90. I think when they do we will see a $ drop. As far as performance goes it is fine. I think a 1650s probably has more legs in OC which would put it over a 5500XT, and it uses...
