  1. AMD Radeon RX 7600 Video Card Review

    Good review but another 8gb card. Good price for today by AMD and hope to see a 16gb version less than $350. Texture resolution can have such a big impact on image quality while having almost no performance impact if you have the VRam. I hope AMD opens up for AIBs the possibility of 16gb versions.
  2. BIOSTAR Unveils AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX Graphics Cards

    I see 4 cards, assuming 2 7900XT and 2 7900XTX. One is a 3 slot card, 3 dp2.1 and one HDMI 2.1. How many pcie connections? OC? I wonder if they actually have a custom design on the 3 slot or is that just a cooler? Since Biostar is Taiwan, wonder if their cards are built there, hint, no...
  3. AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Video Card Review

    Yep, Nvidia is helping AMD in selling 7900 series GPUs. Hope to see some in stock. I went to Bestbuy last night and got caught off guard having a XFX Speedster Merc 7900 XTX available to buy. Not having a clue what the difference was with the reference I hesitated and started looking it up...
  4. AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Video Card Review

    Refreshing review, nicely done. Very modern RT titles that had exposer to RNDA2, current gen consoles, FarCry6 and Spiderman does very well with RT. Older mostly driven Nvidia RTX titles, DXR 1.0 era takes a significant hit. Point is RT performance is also heavily dependent upon how programed...
  5. MSI Unveils the MEG 342C, a 34-Inch Gaming Monitor with Curved QD-OLED Panel and 175 Hz Refresh Rate

    Any word or info when these will be available? HDMI 2.1 would be a plus also if it comes with it, not limited by the GSync module like the Alienware.
  6. AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800X: A Cache Value?

    Same boat on one machine with a 3090 being held back by the Zen 2 cores particularly the minimum FPS. I will probably move the 5800x3d rig into the computer room with VR (Flight Simulator is awesome in VR being limited severely by the 3960x). Some rumor that AMD may support DDR4 with Zen 4, lol...
  7. AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800X: A Cache Value?

    I've notice huge uptakes for minimum FPS in FarCry 6 where it really counts and is noticeable at even 4K resolution. Just a huge difference comparing a 3900x to a 5800x3d. I also have a 5800x in another machine but did not make any comparisons there. I would not even bother that much with...
  8. Steam 3000 Summer Sale Goes Live with Thousands of Games on Sale

    I will probably add a few more titles that may never get played :D.
  9. Intel Z790 and H770 Series Motherboards Will Include DDR4 Models, according to ASRock Leak

    If that option is available for the motherboard makers, I see them having cheaper Z790 boards with DDR4 if they can make money from them. Plus later when DDR 5 only CPUs from Intel, some of those same buyers will migrate yet again to a new motherboard. Win Win. Plus if Raptor Lake with DDR 4 is...
  10. Intel Arc A380 Graphics Card Reportedly Features Performance on Par with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER

    Makes almost zero sense for such a low end card for a new system for gaming, DIY system, when current generation Consoles smokes it. APUs for work related tasks system makes more sense skipping this garbage. I see more like Intel will bundle to the OEMs these law end cards at a much cheaper cost...
  11. FDA Bans Juul E-Cigarettes from U.S. Shelves

    Live with a smoker, when she went to E, I much prefer that over the real McCoy that stained anything in the house with yellow goo and utterly obnoxious in smell. Now we don't want kids to have E cigarettes, they can have real cigarettes or better yet marijuana for that brain effect so positive...
  12. Intel Z790 and H770 Series Motherboards Will Include DDR4 Models, according to ASRock Leak

    Interesting, also what advantage does Z790 have over Z690 would be my question? Zen 4 IPC and clock speed increase still appears to not match even Alder Lake P core performance while Raptor Lake should take it a notch above Alder Lake. Anyways Intel supporting both DDR 4 and 5 with their newest...
  13. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    AMD needs to do something to grow, increasing prices and not dramatically the number of chips, hitting a wall so to speak will not go well over time. So yes, Samsung I would think could/should be used on some skews to increase supply.
  14. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    Intel is very serious, except in this case 2025 does not help much now
  15. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    Maybe Intel can out blood AMD and Nvidia. AMD with TSMC and Nvidia with Samsung at this point is not even coming close to satisfying the demand and also pissing many folks off. Still doubtful TSMC will do much better with Intel.
  16. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    lol, yep, another TSMC product waiting in line. I would expect Intel to concentrate on OEM builds for ARC first while retail gets the scraps. They have a number of upcoming versions, if any will be on Intel process besides the iGPU versions I do not know. I would hope Intel can take control of...
  17. Intel Core i7-12700K vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Performance Review

    Great review, kudo's for MSI providing a good test sample. I would say it would be definitely Intel build if building new at this time, the 12700K smashes the 5800x into oblivion on this review and is very nice seeing Intel getting serious with a great comeback from where they were at. As for...
  18. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    And there are no where to be found, fail of all fails. The cheapest, easiest stripped down card ever produced for this generation and AMD cannot make them or AIBs in sufficient numbers for the desperate of desparates of the PC gamers, strapped for some kind of solution. AMD cannot manufacture or...
  19. Godfall RX 6900 XT vs RTX 3090 FSR Ray Tracing Performance

    Exactly implied and true. DXR 1 games will not effectively use the Infinity Cache while DXR 1.1 games if program to use the RNDA2 hardware can.
