    For quad-channel setups&dual-rank memory: better performance?

    I've read articles about dual channel systems exhibiting higher performance with dual-rank DIMM's (or even 4 single rank DIMM's). Does this also extend to quad-channel setups?

    Intel Study: Diversity and Inclusion in Gaming

    I had thought the Boy Scouts -- at least in the USA -- were finished? They filed for bankruptcy.

    MSI Confirms GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM Series

    Who cares? It's not like anyone is going to be able to buy one, much less buy one for anything like MSRP.

    how much space do I need to Chia be profitable?

    Gold mining produces something of actual use (it's used minimally in electronics) as does the banking industry (loans to expand businesses, personal loans, mortgages, jobs to service all those needs etc.) . What goods or services does any type of cryptocurrency create (aside from money...

    Some eSATA questions

    Technically my z390 board doesn't have eSATA, but since my case does, all I had to do was connect that cable to a SATA III port and set that port in BIOS to removable. It's only running at SATA II speeds because of the limitations of my external enclosure. In both my Asrock Extreme 4 x79 and my...

    how much space do I need to Chia be profitable?

    No the proper response is who is wasting more power.

    how much space do I need to Chia be profitable?

    I've heard this argument before. How many people game 24-7-365? No one I've ever known and no one I've ever known has even come close to 1/5 of that figure.

    Some eSATA questions

    Is eSATA faster or slower in terms of bandwidth than USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 in practical usage (I figure USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 must have more overhead than SATA III but I could be wrong)? I've read to use SATA III over eSATA you can't have a cable longer the 1m. What are the cabling length limitations...

    How are you all coping with increasing PC hardware and tech prices around the world?

    I bought some games I never would've considered buying back in 2018-2019: limbo, little nightmares and inside. I figured I'd never be playing another side-scroller again.

    Nvidia's low latency mode

    That's another question lynx29 why do you have to have G-sync and Vsync on? I thought G-sync already did what vsync does?

    Nvidia's low latency mode

    I used to think the low latency mode settings were basically irrelevant, except for Crysis 3, where setting low latency mode to ultra made 50% to 100% differences in minimum FPS and GPU usage from having low latency mode set to on. I also noticed setting low latency mode to ultra in the Metro...

    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    It required pressure above and beyond atmospheric to inflate the gas bladders that held the H gas. The gas bladders themselves became pressurized because they supported the entire weight of the Hindenburg! As Newton once said for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The gas...

    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    Fuel? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    Why did we abandon hydrogen cars so quickly?

    Wouldn't the walls of the container apply pressure? Because if they didn't the H gas would just continue expanding. I'd say the walls of the containing bladder are applying force to the H gas contained because H gas has a much lighter molecular weight than air. Then of course that force is, in...
