  1. Scalpers Have Reportedly Made $39 Million from AMD, NVIDIA, Microsoft, and Sony’s Latest Tech

    I don't know why if the manufacturer has limited supply they don't just have a pricing structure similar to what scalpers are doing. First week they are rediculous priced, second week it comes down some, etc, etc until it's at MSRP. AMD/AIB's profit, scalpers have no room left the buy, if you...
  2. I upgraded a Ryzen 1700 to 3700x on cheapo Asrock B350 mb!

    Huh? It has plenty of support, the quality is just sub-par. It's supported under both linux and windows as well as multiple applications, including their own recording software in their drivers. My complaint has nothing to do with software support, it has to do with lacking a good hardware...
  3. I upgraded a Ryzen 1700 to 3700x on cheapo Asrock B350 mb!

    When did they lock out ECC? Last I heard it's spotty support but not locked out, just MB manufacturers haven't been adding much support wise. Possibly this changed and I missed things a so haven't really looked into it for a while. I agreed I'm wonder how Xe transcoding will be, and wish AMD...
  4. I upgraded a Ryzen 1700 to 3700x on cheapo Asrock B350 mb!

    I run plex without a GPU as well and end up transcoding sometimes as I record live TV OTA, and some things like the fire stick don't/didn't support MPEG2 directly and have to transcode. Then again, I have (older) dual 6/12 core xeon's, so it's not really a huge deal. I would love to swap this...
  5. So, RGB...

    If you find a better way, please share as rgb is still a huge mess of proprietary software.
  6. PS5’s HDMI 2.1 Bandwidth Seems to Be Capped at 32 Gbps, Meaning No 4:4:4 HDR at 4K/120 Hz

    This is what I was going to say... the PS5 can't even run AAA games at 4k 60hz... what exactly are you missing by not having a 120hz bandwidth? If you want to run 120hz you most likely have to turn down resolution anyways. Maybe there will be some really low poly/low detail game that can...
  7. EVGA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER SC ULTRA Gaming Review

    Yeah, at $150 it'd look much better!
  8. I upgraded a Ryzen 1700 to 3700x on cheapo Asrock B350 mb!

    I just have bad luck... My b450 needed an RMA because it failed to run my 3700x. My 1600 would run 100% solid in the board. Tried like 3 different bioses before giving up. RMA sent a refurbed board, the nvme screw was broken off in the board. Was able to get that out with the eraser side of a...
  9. EVGA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER SC ULTRA Gaming Review

    I was just recommending a 1650 super to someone earlier in the day... Not everyone buys 3090's. He is also using it for a second PC for dedicated streaming and some gaming when friends come over, so 1650 super is the cheapest turing nvenc encoder you can buy ;). Normal 1650 didn't come with...
  10. AMD Confirms That Smart Access Memory Isn’t Proprietary and Can Work with Other Hardware

    I'm not sure what hat you mean by mid level $/perf? Their 6800 or 6800xt? Their $/perf seems to match up similarly,l. My biggest complaint is nothing in the actual range the majority of the population buy in. If I could grab a 3050/6600xt for like $250 that is ~2070 /5700xt performance, I'd...
  11. Samsung and Xilinx Partner for Industry’s First Customizable, Programmable Computational SSD

    Did AMD purchase xilinix yet? Seems like this xilinix thing might be a good thing for them.
  12. NVIDIA Could Be Planning a GeForce RTX 3050

    90w... If it was 70w we could use without a PSU/pcie connector ;). My server has dual PSU's but they plug right into motherboard and don't have connectors. Without some soldering I'm pretty limited on what I can install in my Plex server.
  13. New Ryzen 5000 Series Benchmarks Put AMD’s “Fastest Gaming CPUs” Claim to the Test

    I mean, you can get a B550 with decent VRMs, multi-gig ethernet, pcie 4.0 (GPU and first NVME), all the tuning/clocking you want for well under $200... What Intel boards can I buy in that range with feature parity? Sure I may skip the $89 B550 if I'm going 5800x+, but for a 5600x it'd work fine...
  14. Godfall Requires 12 GB of VRAM at 4K with Ultra HD Textures, Which Could Pose a Problem for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series

    The developer stated that using 4k textures uses 12gb... It's not as much of an assumption as assuming that it's just unoptimized. A 4k texture takes about 128mb+ depending on features (RGB alpha, displacement, surface normal, etc). So, if you have 100 textures, that's 12+ gb alone.. not...
  15. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Rumored With Same CUDA Core Count As GeForce RTX 3090 (10,496) and 20 GB of GDDR6X VRAM

    So, it'll have the same CUDA core count, but less bandwidth... so it'll be less than 10% faster for sure :). What price point do they slot this into? Above or below 6900xt? And even if this is "rushed" through, stock will be abysmal.
