    Graphics Card Manufacturing Being Moved From China in Bid to Escape Import Tariffs - Price to Increase 5-10%

    Better that he makes them a bit poorer now to stop the Chinese from making them a LOT poorer in the future. Putting your head in the sand and ignoring your enemies is not a smart strategy. (The enemy being the Chinese dictatorship)

    Editorial Confessions of a Crypto Miner: Green(er) Mining

    I really dislike all these off topic articles trying to justify mining. Sounds like you're trying to clear your conscience in the face of the overwhelming dislike for mining activities among the users of this website.

    EVGA GTX 1070/1080 Overheating Issues - Company Says Thermal Pads A Solution

    Luckily the MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X was available in Israel slightly before this, so I got that instead. I always wondered if I should've waited a couple of more days; now I know the answer.

    Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming 8 GB

    I don't understand how the TechPowerUp ratings work. How does this have the same score as the MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X when it's 70$ cheaper and has lower temps? How did the Gaming X even get a 9.8 score for offering nearly the same performance with 120$ over the standard price?

    Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell

    Unfortunatly it doesn't work that way. If the GPU is a bottleneck for the system then upgrading he CPU will have next to no effect on performance in games (in most games at least). The higher the resolution the more evident this is because higher resolution alone mostly just increases the load...
